    Building a Relationship with God

    Building a Relationship with God

    We are going to the mailbag.  A listener writes: 'Please go over ways to come to know and love God, to actually form a deep and meaningful relationship with Him.  I feel I only know about God.'  Plus a heated debate over Christmas music.

    Obedience

    Obedience

    Holy Obedience is a revered subject among the saints, though decidedly unpopular in our current culture.  The three priests discuss where they have felt the discomfort of obedience while also recognizing the gift it has been in their life.  They also discuss what obedience really looks like for a man in discernment.

    The Response of Parents

    The Response of Parents

    A man does not enter seminary in a vacuum.  His decision is sure to elicit a response from family, especially parents.  Is there a right way to respond?  Many parents have questions, concerns and may even feel guilty about how they feel when their sons tell them they are entering seminary.  This week the priests discuss what they have seen and their own parents' response to when they told them they were entering seminary.

    Odilo's Bar and Grill

    Odilo's Bar and Grill

    We have never before named an episode after a topic in the banter portion of the show.  However, in this case, Fr. Chad nearly fell out of his chair with the absurdity of the suggestion.  If he disappears from the podcast momentarily, it is only because he was trying to catch his breath.  The real subject of this episode is the mutual discernment between and man and the Church on whether he enters seminary or not.  That means sometimes, a man is not accepted into seminary.  Give it a listen.

    Holy Ambition

    Holy Ambition

    Spiritually wanting the ball.  This week the three priests chat about their childhood pastors: woodworking, basketball and mud pits.  They also look at the desire within to want to be in difficult spots: to spiritually want the ball when it counts.

Best podcast I’ve ever listened too

It is amazing, I love it, it is extremely informative and entertaining, it grabs my attention and answers questions I didn’t even know I had. I especially liked the episode where you talked about saints.
