Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR, and Bob Rice are friends who see humor and hope in a crazy world. Whether they are talking about sports, movies, politics, the Church, or their own lives, Fr. Dave and Bob try to find Christ in all things, even in the messiness of today’s culture. “They that hope in the Lord will renew their strength” (Isaiah 40:31). Come be refreshed and renewed!
Fr. Dave and Bob talk about baseball, broken guitars, St. John Paul II, and fasting with joy.
At the Movies
Fr. Dave and Bob talk about sports and movies, finding peace amidst the busyness, and what they love about St. John XXIII and Vatican II.
This time, it is Bob’s turn to be exhausted. He visited his son at (REDACTED) college over the weekend, while Fr. Dave celebrated Homecoming Weekend at Franciscan. After discussing the usual (sports, shots), they share what they love about the Rosary.
Plethora of Saints
Fr. Dave needs more sleep. After talking about sports (and Bob’s dog), they discuss the Women’s Health Protection Act, the importance of standing up for the dignity of life, and the plethora of saints the Church celebrates this week.
Fr. Dave and Bob celebrate one year of They That Hope by doing what they always do: talking about sports, culture, and faith. Specifically, baseball, the Emmys, and St. Vincent de Paul.
Same Show, Different Day
After talking about sports and sharing fun wedding stories from our listeners, Bob shares he is having a tough time because some of his family have tested positive for COVID. He and Fr. Dave talk about finding hope in the midst of adversity.
