When you look at the image above, do you see a young woman or an old woman? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Better yet, when others look at you, what do you think they see? Continue reading “What Do You See?”
Our faith journey, a lot of times, is referenced to as our “path”. However, in reality, it can feel more like that of a roller coaster. The high’s and low’s can last days, weeks, months, and sometimes years. Most of the time, our high’s seem short lived, while the lows can drag out to what seems forever.
Expect It & Dealing With It
So when you hit that low, that Spiritual Dryness, do you have any particular way you climb out of it? Justin and Dan explore ways to even out that roller coaster and get back to a path…a nice even path!
We hope you enjoy!

In The Screwtape Letters, C.S.Lewis masterfully shows how a demon can influence someone;
“Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”
Sometimes the evil one whispers in your ear or gently taps you on the shoulder… and sometimes he’s not so subtle. To the point where you can hear him begging to let him take the wheel and drive for awhile. Then…sometimes, there’s cases where you actually give him the keys and willingly let him drive, without deception.
How do you take back control when you realize your not the one in the driver’s seat? It may (or may not) be easy when he comes to you as a whisper, but getting him out of the driver’s seat is a whole lot harder when you’ve willingly given him the keys.
Take a listen to our podcast this week for ways to stay in control or take control back.
Thanks for listening!

Enjoy! -Justin and Dan
This Sunday (Pentecost) you’re going to hear in the First Reading how the Apostles were given the Gift of Tongues.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.
I’ve often wondered where this miracle occurred; with the Apostles as they spoke the Word of God, or with the people in the crowd as they heard the Word of God? The Gift of Hearing doesn’t seem to have the same ring to it, does it? Continue reading “The Perception of Sin”
Should it be Father or father, or can it be both?
The life of a Catholic Priest is to be single, celibate, and married to the Church. But has it always been that way? Are there any married Catholic Priests today, because I think I might now a couple. How’s that possible?
Listen to the “Should Priests Be Allowed To Marry?” podcast and find out some interesting information about married priest as we explore it’s history and what it might mean for the clergy if it was allowed.
