    #240: Praying the Liturgy of the Hours (with Fr. Joe Laramie, SJ)

    #240: Praying the Liturgy of the Hours (with Fr. Joe Laramie, SJ)

    Today we speak to Fr. Joe Laramie, a Jesuit priest who currently lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Fr. Joe is also the National Director of the Pope's Prayer Network, a 175-year-old spiritual mission uniting hearts to the Heart of Jesus in the heart of the Church. Additionally he is a Eucharistic Preacher for the National Eucharistic Revival. Fr. Joe recently penned an article for America Magazine titled: "Praying the Liturgy of the Hours is worth it—even if you do it badly". We discuss what he means by that title, and how we, as followers (and oftentimes laypeople), can begin to pray the Liturgy Hours on a regular basis.

Tune in and learn more today! Not ready to submit? This episode gives great tips for composers and shares how you can sit in on the New Music Review yourself.

    #238: Caring for the Voice (REPLAY)

    Holy week is coming, and with it comes a level of personal commitment that may exceed the normal weekend liturgical life: schedules are rearranged, extra music is learned to support the sacred days, and our bodies- especially our voices- have extra pressure put upon ourselves. Not only that, this season has seen a lot of sickness circulating, especially colds and upper respiratory infections.
    For these reasons, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to revisit an episode from 2021 featuring Lynn Eustis on vocal health.

    #237: Gifts of the Spirit: Celebrating Women in Music Ministry (REPLAY)

    #237: Gifts of the Spirit: Celebrating Women in Music Ministry (REPLAY)

    Today we listen to an episode of Ministry Monday from 2020 that celebrates the role women play in music ministry today. We hear the stories of Nancy Douglass and Janèt Sullivan-Whitaker, both active, longtime composers and pastoral musicians. It is a great way to start our celebration of Women's History Month.

    #236: Best of Ministry Monday 2023

    #236: Best of Ministry Monday 2023

    At the beginning of each year we look back at the episodes that made Ministry Monday in the last 12 months. We had several popular episodes in 2023, but one of them stood out from the rest. It featured a story of a father-daughter duo who both serve in music ministry in their respective parishes. In fact, Daniel Ladner - the father in our wonderful story - has served in music ministry for 72 years- at the same church!

    I can say from a personal note that this episode was one of my favorites to record. Hearing Daniel and Beth’s stories, both together and separately, was so inspiring. It reminds me of the lives that light up our parish music ministry, across the country, and the gift that I have to share them with you on the podcast.
