    Don't Bet On It - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    Don't Bet On It - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    One of the great American traditions at this time of year is setting aside a few hours each week to watch our favorite college and pro sports football teams. It is a good time for family bonding, to take a rest from the stresses of daily life, and simply to unwind from a hectic work week. The proliferation and ease of sports wagering, however, encourages many to bet on the games. Unfortunately, young and old alike, may wager money they can ill afford to lose. It is estimated that a staggering 125 billion dollars has been wagered by U.S. citizens in the last four years. By all means, enjoy the games and the food and the friendship, but while the allure of a quick profit may be enticing, don’t bet on it.

    Live by the Golden Rule - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    Live by the Golden Rule - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    Early on most of us learn the Golden Rule: “do unto others as you would have others do unto you”. To children the lesson may be as simple as sharing toys, being gracious to friends and parents, and to say “please” and “thank you”. As we grow older, the message should be no less important—it should help form our character. Ask yourself: Why criticize when we can offer a compliment? Why insult when we can praise? Why hurt when we can help? May the respect, compassion, and forgiveness we desire to receive be the same gifts we extend to others with whom we live and work, and to all persons, without exception. For if we live by God’s Golden Rule, we will be at peace with ourselves and with one another.

    Anniversary of 9/11 - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    Anniversary of 9/11 - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    This past weekend marked the 21st anniversary of the horrific attacks of 9/11. In this time of remembrance, we stand together as a country to mourn all who were killed or injured in these attacks, and for their families whose lives were changed forever. We also remember and honor the bravery and service of all the first responders, medical personnel, and so-called ordinary people who risked their lives to assist in any way they could. May we be united in prayer, especially this week, for all those who died in the attacks of 9/11 and for all those who served that day and ever since. We commend them to God’s infinite love and ask that he look after all those who protect our nation today and bless us with his peace.

    Labor Day - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    Labor Day - One Minute with Bishop Burbidge

    This week we celebrate Labor Day, a holiday to honor the hard work and determination of those who built, and continue to build, our country. There is goodness, value, and dignity in work: from the contributions of those who toiled during the infancy of our nation to the men and women of today who add to our comfort and quality of life. May no one be without employment, may all be paid fairly, and may each person receive respect in their workplace. As Pope Francis says: “work is more than a mere doing; it is, above all, a mission. Jesus invites us to follow in his footsteps through work.” May we always value the dignity of work and never forget its ultimate purpose: to praise God and to serve one another!

Beautiful Podcast!

I love Bishop Burbidge - he is an exemplary, holy Bishop of our Arlington Diocese. I love listening to his minute long segments.

Dishonest Bishop

Bishop Burbidge has shown himself to be a petty middle manager, not taking responsibility for his own actions, especially in dealing with liturgical matters and the clergy. He has shown cowardice in the face of crisis, always passing the buck to deflect any criticism away from himself. His conversations with propaganda minister Billy Atwell are always insufferable. stay clear of this infomercial podcast.
