    "Taste and see the goodness of the Lord." The Eucharist is Jesus' own life, given freely on the Cross so that we would share in his eternal life.

    16th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B (Jul 21, 2024)

    "Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest awhile..." Without prayer, our ministry runs the risk of being self-serving. We need time alone with Jesus. Listen to him!

    "In him we were chosen so that we might exist for the praise of his glory." We are called to bring the Good News of Jesus to all. We cannot do this alone; we minister only within community - "two by two."

    "He was not able to perform any mighty deed there. He was amazed by their lack of faith." Jesus knows rejection and understands our discouragement. May our faith be strong so that we, too, may accept rejection and rise with him to healing and new life.

    "Do not be afraid; just have faith." God often does not answer prayers in the way WE want them answered. We need to trust God's wisdom and mercy.

Very very helpful AND spiritual

I have been a listener and subscriber for many years and this review is long overdue. This podcast is an outstanding resource for Catholic church musicians, singers, and regular "people in pews". Ken, your host, is a musician and composer himself, but more importantly is deeply educated and familiar with the theology of the church. He begins each podcast with a detailed description of the proscribed readings and antiphons from the church's calendar, and then recommends music that will enrich the experience of these readings and be in the proper context. His music recommendations range from ancient hymns and texts ("Of the Father's Love Begotten") to folk-mass classics ("Table of Plenty") and finally to all the latest compositions from contemporary writers like Sarah Hart and Tom Booth. As others have pointed out he also plays, in full, the weekly Psalm setting and Entrance/Communion antiphons from the recently-published OCP resources Spirit & Psalm and Let Us All Rejoice. All of this is delivered by Ken in a relaxed, folksy style that's easily accessible. THANK YOU KEN and OCP for this excellent resource!

Great resource

I love listening to this podcast to hear music and ideas before I plan music for Mass. As a plus, this podcast also keeps my one year old very happy in the car, so sometimes we listen to episodes multiple times.

Good and Bad

It’s the only place to hear the studio recorded Spirit and Psalm psalms, so that’s nice.

But most of the music that they recommend is really just poor quality OCP modern songs that are not good at all.

Do your own research and don’t limit your selections to OCP.
