Corner of the CemeteryPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
The rosebuds will not envy the sunflowers nor the majestic oaks. All will bask in the light of God. And isn’t it the very nature of a beautiful garden to be variated? So, too, the garden we call paradise.

What We Expect of the World: First CommunionPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
First Holy Communion, the real presence, the resurrection, and the world as gift. It all sounds much too good to be true, and that’s what deeply irks us. The utter foreignness of the faith—what one might call, a faith in the free—not its lack of compelling explanation.

Funeral of Jeanne Schloctermeier: "The Soundtrack of Our Lives."Podcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
In the face of sorrow, the Church insists, in the words of the Fifth Dimension, “Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sun shine in.” Like Christ on the cross, we must spread open our arms, believing that we must remain open and faithful to the Father’s love.

Easter: What the Resurrection RevealsPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We are not momentary sparks of spirit in mindless matter, destined only for decay and death. In Christ, in his resurrection, the destiny of the cosmos has been revealed. “Do you not know that a little yeast leavens all the dough?” (1 Cor 5:6). Spirit will yet claim matter as its own, just as we profess that all matter comes from spirit. Spirit will raise us up, raise up our stories and our lives, as surely as it did that of the Christ.

SfumaturaPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Sfumatura. It is when colors run together. It is when moments collide. And it exists in each and every one of us, who are part faithful, part faithless. We live in a smoky world, but tonight, Christ, at its center, draws us to himself and gives his very self to us. He does this with great compassion and utter clarity.Sfumatura.

Palm Sunday: Ran Away NakedPodcast

But now an older, more committed disciple tells us the story of that night. He recalls his searing shame because he wants to give witness to the triumph of grace.

The Dark Flood RisesPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Faith is how we live our lives; faith is how we prepare for death. The two are intertwined. If faith isn’t a strong ship that we have constructed through our length of days, how can we expect it to carry us over the waters of death?

What we know is this: if he was still fighting, he can count on the Good Lord to do the rest. None of us wins the battle on our own. Jesus Christ, God's great champion comes to aid all of us.

Just One More Minute, Please: Funeral of Mildred ReifPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
How sad to lose a loved one to death. How blessed to have a loved one gain heaven! Do you think that Mildred will love you less there, care for you less there, than she did here on earth? She has passed beyond the veil, but it only veils our eyes from her, not hers from us. For so long she fought for her sight on earth. Now, in comparison, we are the ones who cannot see.
