The Podcasts

I waited till my last Mass to make a recording.  It turns out that that Mass was the one where I had the stiffest "competition."  The Scriptures for the Mass of Christmas Day have us considering messengers and messages and our need to distinguish between them.

How do we find joy in being reminded over and over that we are merely human beings?  PRECISELY in embracing our identity as human beings.

Sorry about the screechy recording from last week.  What voices do we listen to?

In the ice and snow which we experienced as November faded and December began, I had power and all the comforts of home -- EXCEPT internet.  My ISP got us back in business today.

Very shortly I will upload my homily from the weekend of the First Sunday of Advent.

I was sick and this homily was very brief.  I believe that this was the Gospel of "the widow's mite."
