The Pursuit of an Apostolic Life through Service, Piety, Fellowship, Study, and Prayer
Category: Dan Lickel
Dan Lickel is a bookend Catholic. He started strong with 12 years of Catholic education, with the last 4 years in a marianist high school, and has revived his relationship with the Church and the Lord over the past several years. But between those bookends, there’s a lot of empty space. Dan has been blessed the last 25 years with a wife he feels he doesn’t deserve as well as 2 beautiful daughters. He also happens to be the YBiCKC site administrator.
What do Lou Holtz, Mike Sweeney, and the Pope have in common? They each believe in the power of prayer and at the center of some pretty miraculous events is the President of Benedictine College, Steve Minnis.
We had a great interview with President Minnis during this podcast as he showed us the power of prayer and what it means to say “yes” to Our Mother Mary. If you’ve ever doubted what prayer can do, we ask you to take a listen…and prepare to be amazed.
Mainstream movies have an age limit that tops out at 17 / 18, so if you’re over the age of 18 you can watch, pretty much any movie you want…right? But should you? How closely does Hollywood’s movie rating system fall in-line with that of the Church? Did you know the Church even had a rating system?
In this episode, we cover the ranking systems and how some current, classic, and our favorite movies compare to those ranking systems. I’d bet after this podcast, you might think twice about going to see certain movies, regardless of your age.
New Equipment? Too Bad for You!
We finally received the equipment necessary to patch phone calls into the podcast recordings. So, you guessed it, we reached out to some friends and family in this episode and put them on the spot!! Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
When asked if he had ever witnessed a person levitate during a demon possession, Adam replied yes. In fact, he said, there are two types of levitation. The first is when someone levitates straight up and usually stops about a foot or so from the ceiling. The second, he said, is when they levitate about a foot and a half or so off the ground and then move about in a serpentine pattern. At this point, the hair on the back of my neck stood-up and I got the heebie-jeebies. Continue reading “The Power of Christ Compels You”
In this episode of the show we discuss another Biblical character, Simon of Cyrene. How much do you know about him? Where is Cyrene and what was he doing in Jerusalem? Was he Jewish? Why was he (specifically) called upon to participate in the single greatest event in human history?
We cover all these questions and more as we look into a small yet significant person from the Bible.
The year to get fit, lose weight, eat better, drink more water and eat less sweets. And/ Or was it the year to pray more, say a daily rosary, go to adoration more, and attend a weekday mass. Maybe you threw in being nicer to people, more tolerant, more merciful, or maybe more volunteering to those in need. So, what are your New Year’s Resolutions for 2018… and more importantly, how’s it going so far?
After 4 days into the new year, I can tell you that somehow all my resolutions have been burnt to the ground! As soon as my feet hit the ground on Tuesday (1/2), which for me was the first work day of 2018, I got hit by several “not-so-nice” emails from work followed by an onslaught of crap I don’t really want to get into. It took a good 10 minutes that morning to convince myself not to turn off my phone and crawl back into bed. During that 10-minute internal debate I wondered, “Is this how my 2018 is going to be?” Continue reading “So Far, So Good?”
As we prepare for the 4th week of Advent, we prepare for the birth of Christ, especially since it lands on Christmas Eve. With that in mind, what is the greatest gift you ever received? What is the greatest gift you’ve ever given? We discuss ours as well as the greatest gift the world has ever received, the gift of Jesus Christ.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We are wanted to start a Q&A section of the podcast, so if you have any burning questions about the faith, drop us a note.
