    Episode 60: Declining Vocations: What Are We Missing?

    Episode 60: Declining Vocations: What Are We Missing?

    On June 5, Archbishop Lucas led a special hour of prayer for vocations at St. Cecilia Cathedral—an hour which was intentionally planned for what would otherwise have been the annual Mass of Ordination. This year, however, there were no men to be ordained.


    The Church prays for vocations all the time, so why does it seem we're not getting an answer? In this episode, Archbishop Lucas tackles the question of how to foster priestly vocations and asks us to look seriously at what we each can do to help young people listen to the One who calls.

    Episode 59: Put the Holy Spirit to Work

    How do we know the Holy Spirit is present? Do we believe that He is present and that we can experience Him? As we celebrate Pentecost, Archbishop Lucas encourages us to put the Holy Spirit to work, and to go (back) to Mass with all our desire wide open.

    Episode 58: This is a very big deal!

    Episode 58: This is a very big deal!

    Archbishop Lucas and David celebrate the joy of the Easter season with a conversation about how to stay amazed by things we've heard before. Each year, we hear the story of Jesus rising from the dead and we can become accustomed to it. We forget how miraculous that story really is!


    There is also a discussion on the dispensation from the Sunday obligation ending on Pentecost weekend, May 22-23, 2021 and the reasoning behind that.

    Episode 57: Why did Jesus have to suffer?

    As we draw closer to Holy Week, Archbishop Lucas is posed the question, "Why did Jesus have to suffer?" This leads to a conversation on answering the problem of evil and why bad things happen to good people. If you've ever pondered this question or want to prepare your heart for Holy Week, this will be a thought-provoking listen.
