    Ep. 30 - All I NEED for Christmas is...

    Ep. 30 - All I NEED for Christmas is...

    This weekend's readings are all about desires and expectations and it's only fitting that we take a moment to reflect on what we NEED versus what we WANT. This applies  just as much to our spiritual life as it does to our material wants and needs. As we continue our Advent journey to Christmas, may we learn to more fully abandon ourselves to the Will of God, who always knows best what we want and what we need!


    A beautifully busy Parish Fair weekend meant we didn't see much in the way of sports, but we share some thoughts on the madhouse that has become the Hurricanes AD/HC search and the College Football Playoff.

    Ep. 29 - In stillness we wait...

    Happy Advent! We begin the new liturgical year with a reflection on what this Advent season should be all about: quietly preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. While the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full-swing all around us, Advent invites us to slow down, be still, and vigilantly prepare in order to make the most of our Christmas celebrations.


    In sports, Fr. Manny and Ashley bask in the glory of another Dolphins Victory Monday and College Football chaos continues heading into Conference Championship weekend.

    Ep. 28 - Attitude of Gratitude

    Ep. 28 - Attitude of Gratitude

    This past weekend's celebration of Christ the King challenges us to allow Jesus Christ to reign as "King of our Hearts." On this Thanksgiving Week episode, we keep it simple as we reflect on living with a constant attitude of gratitude and Fr. Manny shares a little about his annual list of 100 Thanks.


    In sports, we celebrate the continuing rise of "Tyler Van Dimes," bask in the always-joyous Dolphins win over the Jets, and tap into the rumor mill around the 'Canes AD Search.

    Ep. 27 - The End of the World?

    Ep. 27 - The End of the World?

    It's an Izzy Monday! In today's episode, Izzy has questions about Sunday's apocalyptic gospel and Father Manny has answers.  Why does Jesus paint such a chaotic picture of the end of the world?  (Speaking of the end of the world, Father Manny goes off on a major tangent on the artistic genius of Taylor Swift without being prompted by Izzy.) Somehow we tie a bow on everything by asking St. Michael to defend us the spiritual battle that Christians are faced with every day in a secular world.


    In sports, Ashley and Father Manny break down the Dolphins big win over the Ravens last Thursday night.  We barely speak about UM-FSU because...4th and 14!

    Ep. 26 - Making Something out of Nothing

    Ep. 26 - Making Something out of Nothing

    When all we have to offer is seemingly nothing, that's when God does his most incredible work!


    As we celebrate National Vocations Awareness Week, we reflect on our own vocations, the challenges of fostering a vocations mentality among our youth, and the importance of turning to the Lord with our nothingness and letting Him take care of the rest. On a related note, our long-anticipated announcement of Perpetual Adoration got bumped up a month and the St. Joseph Adoration Chapel is now accessible 24-7!


    In sports, it was a glorious Miami weekend as the Dolphins finally picked up another W, joining the rest of our major local sports teams for a perfect, undefeated weekend! Fr Manny and Ashley, as you might imagine, were just a little bit excited.

    Ep. 25 - I Want to be a Saint!

    Ep. 25 - I Want to be a Saint!

    Happy All Saints Day! On today's episode, we discuss just how EASY it is to be a saint... really!! 


    These three days of All Hallow's Eve, All Saints Day and All Souls Day show us what the Communion of Saints is all about and how each of us is called to, and can easily live out, lives of holiness.


    In sports, the 'Canes have a QB! And thank God for the Panthers and Heat... nothing else to discuss... really!
