Fr. Joel’s Podcast has been a game changer!

I am so grateful for Fr. Joel and his way of sharing the love of Jesus and Mary with us. His homilies always leave me with things to ponder and ways to grow my faith. Thank you Fr. Joel for making your words available to us anytime anywhere.

Oriens

Fr Joel, also the Author of the ‘Oriens’ series, is truly a ‘sunrise’ and an ‘awakening’ to me. You see I’ve ‘known’ Fr. Joel since 2016 BUT I didn’t know him at all. Not only is his series ‘Oriens’ an ‘awakening’ but these podcasts! As I listen to these in a quiet, private, silent space he truly delivers the Holy Spirit in abundance. I am blessed to have found these ‘pods’ to embrace one, two or more in a sitting! God bless Fr. Joel and I’m so glad I got to ‘know’ you - the reflection of Christ!

Relatable always

Fr Joel has a beautiful gift of relating the scripture readings and gospel into every day life. What a blessing it is that he shares his gift with those who can not attend mass with him.
