Have you ever listened to Mozart? Not the music but what he said in his many letters. Just listen to him! â€śI have always had God before my eyes!â€ťÂ And this. "If you thought how lucky were those who received the Eucharist, and at the communion the music spoke in quiet joy from the hearts of those kneeling there . Benedictus qui venitâ€¦â€ť.Â When he set the words of the Mass to music, he wrote,â€ťâ€¦it comes to you and moves your soul!â€ť
On this episode of Young Catholics Respond, Bill Snyder talks with Catholic author, speaker, and Host of A Seeking Heart podcast, Allison Gingras about her reversion to the Catholic Faith and her ministry.Â
Manny Montanez is the President and CEO of EG Montanez Construction, Inc., an Irvine, CA based General Contractor.Â He was raised Catholic.
- He has an amazing story to tell about his career and faith journey and is looking forward to sharing with all of you.
- Manny was honored as Legatus' Officer of the Year in 2011 for his service to the Orange Coast Chapter and his passion for the Legatus mission. Manny's leadership skills were evident in his service in the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War for which he was awarded the Bronze Star for Valor and the Purple Heart for wounds received in combat as a member of the 25th Infantry Division's 3rd Squadron, 4th Armored Cavalry Regiment in South Vietnam. He now serves as Regional Director of the West Region for Legatus.
We haven't dived into our Thanksgiving feasts yet but this week we are going to talk about Advent. I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to get their hands on the excellent Advent journal from Fr Mark Toups Rejoice: Advent Meditations with Mary. Fr Mark and I take a look at why it is important to include Mary in our Advent journey to Christmas, why Christmas day is an event rather than a single 24 hour occurrence, and how we can effectively dive into scripture to build a lifelong rewarding habit of journaling.Â
Fr. Anthony Sciarappa co-hosts(WHAT!?!?!) as we talk about what Taylor learned about keeping things simple from the high school students he was on retreat with this weekend. (The students may or may not have been a little comically confused)
In the second segment, we are joined by a listener favorite Fr. Augustine Wetta. He rejoins the show(from his high school classroom with actual students in it) to talk about his new novel "The Eighth Arrow" which explores what it would be like if Odysseus from the Odyssey was in Dante's Inferno. The book is a thoroughly entertaining jailbreak story, full of allusions to great works of old and the lessons contained. A segment with the monk who breaks all monk stereotypes is always entertaining.
In the final segment, Taylor and Fr. Anthony bring back the "Mass Text" segment to revisit this past Sunday's readings, see how Father's homily went, discuss being bad at humility & why truths survive the test of time.

The Breath of Prayer
Warning: An analogy of St. Augustine is mentioned relative to the nuptials of Jesus with His Bride the Church on the Cross which could be considered sexually explicit by some more sensitive listeners. We do not think there is any problem, but you can be the judge of the sensitivities of your listeners. God bless you.
- 04:33 - Iâ€™m in RCIA and I feel like there isnâ€™t a place for me in the Church if Iâ€™m not married, or that God wonâ€™t be able to use me until I find my vocation. Any advice?
- 11:04 - My wife and I were married outside the Church. After that we both became Catholic (I had previously been baptized, she had not). Should we refrain from Communion because we were married outside the Church?
- 18:57 - If angels have perfect knowledge of God and they have free will, why would some rebel and some not?
- 34:45 - Who is the Queen of Heaven referred to in Jeremiah 44?
- 39:50 - We often use Maccabees to support the doctrine of Purgatory. But since Protestants donâ€™t accept that book as scriptural, is there a better defense of Purgatory?
- 50:26 - My boyfriend and I used to be married (outside the Church). We were both baptized. He is the process of becoming Catholic and I am considering it. Is our original marriage valid and are we still actually married?
- 09:26 - What is the Churchâ€™s teaching on usury?
- 18:30 - I recently had to break an engagement. What is Catholic teaching on engagement? Is there anything wrong with breaking one?
- 35:05 - Iâ€™m married but not through the Church. Should I be going to Communion?
- 43:20 - How were Old Testament people saved? Is it different from how a New Testament person is saved?
What does separation of church and state really mean in the context of the framers' intent to our day and age?Â Have a listen.

- 08:59 - What is your interpretation of John 10? (Verses 15-16 and 26-29 regarding salvation.)
- 18:18 - Did Catholics really not want people to read the bible for themselves?
- 35:33 - Does God have a soul?
- 43:20 - My wife is in RCIA and is wondering what the Church teaches about how many people will be saved. It seems the Bible says the number will be few.
