The Encounter Mercy Podcast is the result of prayerful discernment to evangelize our brothers and sisters utilizing Twenty-First Century methods. We are not professional podcasters in any way, nor are we experts in communications. We don’t claim to know everything, but we are, however, two men (one who happens to be a priest) who have a strong desire to share our knowledge and experiences of Christ to the world. Both hosts are millennials (even though one of us hates the term [cough...cough...Father Andy]) with collective life experience. Sometimes we will be funny. Sometimes we will be serious. Every time, we will be real and honest with you our listener, our family, our friends...so make sure to subscribe to listen to our episodes weekly.
Knowing yourself and who you are is important; it allows for each of us to come to a greater understanding of our motives, and what makes us tick. An old phrase often spoken about this topic is self-knowledge leads to self-acceptance, which leads to self-gift.
Join Brother Barnabas and AJ this week as they journey along the path of self-knowledge.
An Attack on Our Church
Our world is currently in turmoil, and the world seems to be falling apart. With that, there have been attacks on our church, both physically and spiritually. What does this mean for us, and what should we do about it?
Join Vince, Father Andy and AJ as they discuss these troubling times in our world.
Welcome Back To...
The Encounter Mercy Podcast with your host… AJ? Brother Barnabas? Wait… What happened?
No, no, don’t adjust your device. Join Brother Barnabas and AJ, now new co-hosts, as they take over the podcast this week!
Let us know what you think! AJ and Brother Barnabas will be co-hosting from time to time, providing some great banter and discussions. Let us know of any topics you would like to have discussed!
Till Death Do Us Part - Part 2
Marriage is such an important union, and so taking care of a relationship is number one in our list. But what does that mean? Join Vince and Father Andy as they discuss this very important sacrament.
Till Death Do Us Part - Part 1
Death: a topic we are careful to avoid. Have you ever thought about all the ways we allude to death in our speech without ever saying the word “death?” Passed on, fell asleep, went home, went to their reward, departed this earth, passed away, departed, gone, slipped away, lost the battle, succumbed to life, kicked the bucket, went to be with the Lord, went to Heaven, met his Maker, was called home, is in a better place, the list goes on.
But why are we so afraid of saying it? Why are we so afraid of saying people die, and that we all will eventually die? Join Vince and Father Andy as they discuss death in the Christian life, and the importance to discuss death in our lives.
Often we are asked why we are Catholic, or why the Catholic Church. Why not just join a more “hip,” or “up-to-date,” or more “with-the-times” church. Well, lots of good reasons! Join Father Andy, Vince, Brother Barnabas, and AJ Gedney as they discuss the reasons for the Church as they discuss often heard reasons against the Church. And no, don’t adjust your dial! We were experiencing lots of technical difficulties during this recording, so enjoy the random “bloopers” and out-takes.
