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.
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!

It took a good 10 minutes that morning to convince myself not to turn off my phone and crawl back into bed.

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.
The third week of Advent, we are calling it The Living Joy. This week is a time of rejoice, a time of joy. But this time of year it’s easy to confuse happy with joy. We dive into this topic during this podcast, we hope you enjoy.
Feel free to leave your comments below, and thank for listening.

As the Holy Family is making their journey to Bethlehem, we reflect on our own journey. Are we standing still, stuck in the sand doing the same things over and over all the while bearing no fruit? What does our journey look like, what should it look like and (most importantly), what will it look like?
