In episode #12 of Misfit Faith we turn our attention to the ânew sexual revolutionâ and the hookup culture it generates. I chat with actor and writer Donna Provencher about her perspective on masculinity, femininity, and whether random relationship-less sex is really satisfying for those who engage in it. I answer a listenerâs call about how sexual Jesus actually was, and then end the episode with my âJason Needs a Minuteâ segment in which I address the recent school shooting in Florida.

Mary âmagnifiedâ the Lord, not because of the words she said or sang in praise of Him, but because Mary fulfilled Godâs purpose for her to the fullest possible degree. Completely unhindered by sin, Mary evolved completely into the person God created her to be, and in so doing, her whole life magnified the Lord. Mary, herself, is the Magnificat.

Maryâs name is from the root for myrrh, meaning bitter. The tree sap that produces myrrh gathers in âtears,â when the bark is deeply scored, which are cherished and collected for their extreme value. Myrrh is the balsam of suffering, purification, and death, as it was used as an antiseptic, an opiate to deaden pain, and in the embalming and preparation of bodies for burial.
See how your Mother loves you? She helps ease your suffering, and purify and prepare your soul for eternal life.

What happens when a prayerful young peasant receives a whisper so powerful that she dares not tell it? She hugs the secret close. And it is incarnated.
Going over and over the reality in her mind, she touches it timidly and unwraps it with equally unspeakable thrill each time. Looking at its significance from every possible angle, replaying the words repeatedly, jumping up and down and twirling around in her soul until sheâs dizzy with the implications, she âponders it in her heart.â
And when someone else, a cousin, reveals that she too knows and understands and believes what unspeakable thing has happened, the riot of praise and poetry and stupendous irony fizz out of her, spreading out in a pool of song that runs up the sides of the hills of history like a wave.
This is Maryâs Magnificat. This is Maryâs Song. Hers is the song of the Church.

When my sister was little, she ran to my mother after a nightmare. Attempting to soothe her fears, my mother told her she should pray to Jesus and remember He is always with her. With worry wrinkling her forehead, my sister replied, âBut Mama, I need somebody with skin on âem!â
The tabernacle and its Ark of the Covenant were the Old Testament expression of Godâs desire to be present with His people. Jesus, our new Covenant, and Mary our new Ark, carry this expression forward into the Church, where God is still present on His throne.
The stunning vintage samplers crafted by my motherâs respectful fingers might take your breath away.
Hundreds of thousands of colorful hand-stitches and hours of painstaking concentration and deliberation go into these linensÂ of love, such as this Quaker Sampler called Vierlande 1826. Doesnât it make your soul sigh just to look at the joy that left her hand? Delicate finery is fearfully,Â wonderfully made.
The Old Testament tabernacle veil teaches that you, Dear One, are also uniquely âstitchedâ together with a similar unrepeatable purpose, careful respect, and wondrous appreciation. Do not doubt your wonderful nature, for you are âfearfully and wonderfully madeâ (Psalm 139:14).

My pastor loves the liturgy; he uses incense like a fumigator when itâs called for. By the end of the weekendâs MassesÂ you have to part the smoke with your hands to see the altar. The old ladies cough and sneeze and dab their rolling eyes, but I love the way it gets in my clothes and hair. I take it home and inhale the scent of prayer for the rest of the day. Combining incense, liturgy, sacrifice, and prayer was Godâs idea!
