    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 56: Disconnect & Reconnect

    Episode 56: Disconnect & Reconnect

    This Lent, Archbishop Lucas encourages us to "disconnect and reconnect"—disconnect from the perpetual outrage machine created by our current media and political climate, and reconnect to the Prince of Peace through His Body, the Church.


    "Disconnect" doesn't mean to bury our heads in the sand, but rather sifting more vigorously what media we consume and why, and what time we make for silence, for prayer, for others. "Reconnect" is an invitation to move closer (literally!) to those things that really give us life.

    53: Having Mercy on the Dead

    How do Catholics remember the dead? Why do we pray for them? And what do these practices teach us about how we can live better lives here on Earth? Archbishop Lucas answers these questions and gives us practical ways for us to both grow in our faith and pray for those who we have lost.
