    All the Cliches We Love to Hate

    All the Cliches We Love to Hate

    Cliches, aphorisms, truisms, and platitudes are all part of our common speech, and we all cringe a little whenever we hear them. In youth ministry or pastoral care, there is a whole set of them that get used way too much. In this episode, we explode a few of them and confess to using them, to our shame.

    Show Notes:

    “Saint John Paul the Great: His Five Loves” by Jason Evert. Paola didn’t know the title to this book even though she’s “reading” it.

    Episode 4: Worship Part Dos

    Episode 4: Worship Part Dos

    When we worship God, we're brought into relationship with Him. The act of worship is not limited to liturgical action, but can actually be seen in everything we do, in all our moral decisions. In this episode we talk about how following the Commandments help us worship. And how Matt Fradd's Aussie accent makes his podcasts even more wonderful.

    Show notes:

    Episode 3: Worship Part One

    Episode 3: Worship Part One

    What is worship and what do we value? In this episode, we’ll start looking at the way our act of worship, especially at Mass, connects us to God and to one another. We’ll also see how worship is a fulfillment of God’s law. There will be some liturgical nerdery at work.

    Episode 2: You’ll Never Be Happy And Other Thoughts In Exhaustion

    Episode 2: You’ll Never Be Happy And Other Thoughts In Exhaustion

    We’re really tired. So in this episode we probably won’t stumble over any of our words or forget names or make any exhaustion-related mistakes. But we’ll be talking about being tired, the way exhaustion impacts ministry, and how God works through us even when we have no energy to offer. Check out our only late-night recording and find out why we usually record in daylight!

    Episode 1: Quarantine Makes You Do Strange Things

    Episode 1: Quarantine Makes You Do Strange Things

    Did you know that being quarantined increases your likeliness of starting a podcast by 82.5%? We have no data to back that up, but if it’s not true it should be. In our inaugural episode, we’re talking about the challenges the quarantine has posed to priestly ministry, parish life, working with our youth, and personal spiritual growth, and the blessings that have come out of the pandemic. This podcast is born out of a place of prayer and a desire to deepen community in our church.
