Liturgy Live - 3rd Sunday in Lent - Reveal the Well

Liturgy Live - 3rd Sunday in Lent - Reveal the Well

March 11, 2020

This week on the podcast we talk about how Moses was able to be real with God. He prayed in a way that showed his frustration with the people of Israel.  The people knew what they needed but they didn't ask God for it. In the Gospel we talk about the woman at the well, who didn't know to ask Christ for water, but he revealed what she needed and she asked. The Lord is so gentle with us when we are receptive to His mercy. He reveals the well in our hearts that is the spring of water welling up to eternal life.

Liturgy Live - 2nd Sunday in Lent - On the Mountain

March 7, 2020

On this second Sunday in lent we talk about aversion to climbing the mountain. When we make it to the top, we also don't want to leave. We don't like the cross, nor do we like the climb of exercising virtue to get up the mountain. We are to go as the Lord directs us, as Abram did when he leaves his father and follows the Lord. If the Lord is calling you, GO! Obedience to the Lord comes up a lot especially in Lent.

Liturgy Live - 1st Sunday in Lent - Our Temptations

Liturgy Live - 1st Sunday in Lent - Our Temptations

February 27, 2020

This week on the Podcast we talk about temptations. Specifically the first temptation of Adam and Eve and the temptations of Christ in the desert. Most of our sins fall into the three categories of sin, our base passions, our vanity and our pride. We discuss fasting and finding the sweet spot of suffering where growth is possible. In our temptations they will look like the gifts that God has given us, the other trees were good for food and beautiful to look at, the lack of obedience and taking something that has not been offered is where we go wrong.

Liturgy Live - 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Be Perfect

February 19, 2020

This week we talk about how to respond to division in the Church. Do not let others action drag you into sin. Focus on contemplation, be prepared even for distractions, so you will not be disturbed in those moments. When you have control over your own passions and emotions you can have a positive effect on those around you without being controlling. Be holy as the LORD is holy, then you will be able to love your neighbor as yourself

Liturgy Live - 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Salt and Light

Liturgy Live - 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Salt and Light

February 7, 2020

This weeks podcast we talk about the "proto" beatitudes of Isaiah. How we are called to serve and feed the poor. We are called to purge ourselves of our maliciousness and serve the poor, then we will be light in the darkness. In the second reading we talk about the power of the gospel on its own, no matter our weakness.  In the gospel we talk about how we are called to be salt, and we are called to be light.

Liturgy Live - Presentation of the Lord - Church People

Liturgy Live - Presentation of the Lord - Church People

January 29, 2020

This week we talk a lot about the people you will find in the church. Those who withstand the refiners fire that is parish life, who wait on the Lord. In the second reading we talk about how Christ suffered and we can find Him in our sufferings. After the Gospel we talk about how there are labels that are self placed or placed by others in the Church and we need to see through them to the actual person and be able to love the person. We can, and are commanded to, love people that we don't agree with. There is a lot of healing to do in Church culture and serving, others who we disagree with will go a long way towards that healing.

Liturgy Live - 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Hope in Darkness

Liturgy Live - 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Hope in Darkness

January 22, 2020

This week we talk about the hope that can be found in desolation. When we are dealing with the mundane and the everyday-ness of life we can tend to lose our drive and excitement in our mission. When we have patience in the desolation and seek to be in a continuous state of grace we can be fruitful even through our times of desolation. Christ is the light and we are called to bear Him to the nations.

Liturgy Live - 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Humility in Teamwork

Liturgy Live - 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Humility in Teamwork

January 14, 2020

This week we talk about The prophesy of Isaiah that can be looked at in three different ways. First and foremost, Christ is the fulfillment of this prophesy. Second, St John the Baptist is God's servant and draws the people out into the wilderness seeking repentance and restoration. Third we are also called to be the light to the nations and to bring salvation to the ends of the earth. Again we discuss the need for us to decrease so Christ can increase in our lives. We talk a lot about how we arent always the hero of our own story, we are sometimes a supporting actor. The roles that we play in teamwork most likely are supporting roles and it is a place to have joy in humility.

Liturgy Live - Baptism of the Lord

Liturgy Live - Baptism of the Lord

January 8, 2020

This week on the Podcast we talk about the prophecy of the baptism and the fulfilment in Christ. We really go into our response to holiness. In maturity we are able to rejoice in the gifts of others, not tear them down in jealousy or envy. We talk about how John recognised his role and questioned his worthiness to complete it. It was allowed for the fulfilment of scripture. We also talk about attitudes in which we question God in our confusion or misunderstanding, John does not fall into the same sin as his father.

December 16, 2019

After a few weeks with technical issues, we are back! We have actual bingo cards being created to play during the show. If you have common words or phrases you think we should have on the cards let us know, and if you want a bingo card, email us at Liturgylive@gmail.com. This week we talk about many different topics. It all comes down to the signs given to us and obedience to God's commands. We are all called to perfection and not to be afraid of the plans God has for us. St Joseph hears the commands and follows them, St Paul calls for us to receive the grace given to call others to the obedience of faith.

Liturgy Live - Christ the King - King of Mercy

Liturgy Live - Christ the King - King of Mercy

November 18, 2019

This week on the podcast we talk about the spiritual leadership of David. How David waited for so long, already anointed, and still mourned the death of King Saul even though they were enemies. This really spoke to us about holding the office in respect even if we know that the leadership is not perfect. The anointed of God still should be respected and mourned. It is a perspective that is lacking in today's culture. In the second reading we talk about how Paul points out Christ as the king of everything created, the levels of angels that are bad and good are subject to Him. We discuss the paradox of Christ's Justice and Mercy and how we should hold them together. We also focus on the correct interpretation of what Mercy really is verses the illusion of compassion. In the Gospel we talk about contemplating the sufferings of Christ and how they are the beatific vision.

Liturgy Live - 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Perseverance Through Destruction

Liturgy Live - 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Perseverance Through Destruction

November 14, 2019

This week on the Podcast we continue to talk about the last things. In the first reading we talk about Prophet Malachi and how his book condemns the offensive defiled sacrifices made in the temple since the return from exile. Malachi prophesies the destruction of the evil ones. In the second reading we talk about how St Paul exhorts us to work hard even if we think it is the end times. We need to keep from the idleness that brings about sin. In the Gospel we talk about the destruction of the temple in 70AD and how we are all called to be prepared for the end times in our day as well. Jesus tells us not to be terrified and persevere in order to save our lives, our spiritual lives.

Liturgy Live - 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Resurrection Hope

Liturgy Live - 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Resurrection Hope

November 8, 2019

This week on the podcast, we talk about the hope of the coming Resurrection through Christ.  The first reading shows the seven sons suffering for their faith in front of their mother, who encouraged them to stand firm. Their witness, belief in the resurrection of the dead, and a life to come is an example of courageous faith. The blood of the Martyr is the seed of the church. We then go into talking about thinking in a meta context, and how to go about contemplation healthily. We talk about how a deeper reflection of the right way and wrong way to contemplate is needed.

Liturgy Live - 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time - Seek and Save

Liturgy Live - 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time - Seek and Save

October 31, 2019

This week we really dive deep into the beginning of the first reading. How the whole universe is a grain from the balance. How small we are in the relation to everything, yet how much God loves each and every one of us. We talk about thinking about God and thinking about thinking about God. We get a little meta. It goes into the experience of how to pray and how to slow down and think about life and how to make choices. In the second reading we talk about the warning from St Paul not to despair over those who cry out that the second coming is near. Do not be shaken, tend to the battle that is before you and do not sin. We didn't make it to the gospel this week, we spent our time on the first readings.

Liturgy Live - 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Humbled and Exalted

Liturgy Live - 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Humbled and Exalted

October 25, 2019

This week on the podcast we talk about the struggles of moving through the spiritual levels. One of the temptations of conquering your sins is to become judgmental of the process of others. We talk about having to be very aware of what is hurting us in sin to be able to fight it. How do we walk the line of proclaiming God's work in our lives and also not becoming prideful in that work. We talk about how hard it is to share successes with friends, but it is easy to find friends who will join us to complain about our struggles.

Liturgy Live - 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Persevere in Prayer

Liturgy Live - 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Persevere in Prayer

October 17, 2019

This week on the podcast we talk about the necessity of both the active and contemplative life. Moses holds his hands up for the success of those fighting the troops of Amelek, there are 2 groups in this situation, the contemplative prayer needed for success and the active fighters also needed for the same success. We talk about personal experience with prayer. In the second reading we talk about how we are charged with the mission to proclaim the gospel, teach and encourage those around us, which is only possible when we are connected to God with perseverance in prayer. In the Gospel we talk about how the unjust judge knew that he was breaking the great commandments, but was able to conclude that he should be good to the widow due to her perseverance. How much more will God who loves us perfectly, hear us and respond to our persistent prayer.

Liturgy Live - 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Obedience and Thanksgiving

Liturgy Live - 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Obedience and Thanksgiving

October 10, 2019

This week on the podcast we talk about the O word, yes the word that sends some into a fit of rage. Obedience. Our culture is a culture of disobedience, it is expected and sometimes even revered as some sort of secular virtue. This weeks readings go into having to be obedient to the Word in order to be healed, and then return in thanksgiving in order to be saved. Christ has the ability to heal us, but we have to be faithful and not walk away from Him in our restored state.

Liturgy Live - 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time - How Long O Lord

Liturgy Live - 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time - How Long O Lord

October 3, 2019

This week on the podcast we talk about the need for increase of faith. In the first reading we hear the cry of the Prophet Habakkuk that is also echoed in Psalm 13. This cry is followed by the response of the Lord to be patient and have hope for the coming fulfilment. In the second reading we talk about the gifts given through the Sacrament of Holy Orders of power, love, and self control. In the Gospel we talk about the request for the increase of faith and the requirements of service that will come with that increase.

Liturgy Live - 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time - See the Poor

Liturgy Live - 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time - See the Poor

September 25, 2019

This week on the podcast we talk about needing to be present to the poor. In the first reading we talk about how the Prophet Amos was talking about the leaders in the temple were abusing the items meant for serving God and set aside for His worship. It shows that they are unable to see the sign of the times because they will go into exile first. In the second reading we talk about how St Paul gives us the goals to strive for in a mirror image from the sins of the first reading. We should be striving for sanctification. In the Gospel we talk about serving the poor and being able to actually see the poor around us while being in such a comfortable culture. There is different ways to serve and love those who are in poverty and we should be seeking those out in our lives.
