Setting the Record Straight - Defending the Authenticity of The True Cross - 1/16/19

January 16, 2019

Uncomfortable truths such as the almost certain validity of that greatest of all relics the True Cross Of Christ are often ignored because they just cannot fit into the mind sets of those that reject Catholicism. Non-Catholics sometimes get mental indigestion when they hear the amazing stories describing how carefully preserved and documented are Catholic relics of every type. Calvin ridiculed the Catholics who claimed to have of relics of The True Cross. Much as he ridiculed other more important parts the Catholic Church inheritance from Christ. Listen to hear how Calvin’s careless opinion was exposed as ridiculous itself.

You Minister

January 16, 2019

“Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words.” ― Francis of Assisi

I’ve always been a fan of this quote from St. Francis. It speaks volumes about ministry. In this podcast, Tony discusses the personal ministries that we do every day.

Scripture: “Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words.” ― Francis of Assisi

But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.–1 Peter 2:9

Reflection:  What do you do in your daily life that you would consider ministry? Have you ever considered that the way you treat people is part of your ministry?  How do others minister to you?

Liturgy Live - The Gifts of the Spirit - 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 15, 2019
Fr. Ian Van Heusen and Alanna Burg discuss the readings for the Second Sunday in Ordinary time. We begin discussing the topic of our identity and how we view ourselves before and after the encounter of God in our lives. We have considered ourselves forsaken, but now are called God's "delight". We then discuss the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and how important it is for us to discern them in order to give back the love that God has given us, to experience joy by using your gifts for Christ. Finally the Gospel story of the Wedding at Cana, we go into the first miracle at the intercession of Our Lady, and while Jesus is the one who performed the miracle it took the cooperation of the servants to accomplish His will.

The Dignity of Women - Episode 012 - Hookup Culture

January 15, 2019

Perhaps you avoided the hookup culture altogether when you were dating your spouse, and therefore honestly can't understand it at all. Or maybe you encountered your fair share of it when you were navigating the messy waters of love. Some of you, I'm sure are even wading through it now! One of the primary and most frustrating elements of today's dating world is the fear of commitment. Professor Tim O'Malley gives his students extra credit for going on a date and analyzing that date according to the art of dating (there are actual skills to be learned)! Tim joins me on this episode of The Dignity of Women to unpack the popularized utilitarian concept of "hooking up," which has sought to replace dating and therefore threaten the healthy process of communication leading into the entrance of marriage. Tim looks at God, Love, Dating, and Marriage in a Hookup World.
