Is Community the Cure for Suicide?Podcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We must learn again that communities exist to create, sustain, and protect life. To fall away from communion of life with others, to be separated from community, is life-threatening. The one who is isolated is in danger. Communities that seek out their lost are alive; those who stop searching are in the throes of death.

Birth, Death, & Glory to be RevealedPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
To acknowledge God as creator, redeemer, and sanctifier is to confess that each moment of our lives only finds its meaning in a totality yet to be disclosed. Yet that meaning has been announced in the death and resurrection of the Christ. All that remains to be revealed is the role that our lives, long or short, blessed or cursed, content or restless, will play in Christ’s glory.

The Hidden Life of Nature, Ourselves, & GodPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
To reverence God is to reverence the two great mysteries that God created: the world around us and ourselves. We don’t seize that which ever-exceeds exceeds our grasp. We humbly open ourselves to it.

A Prayer Book for OthersPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We are who we are because of who we love, with whom we share life. To share life with the Lord is to give life itself to those whom we love in the Lord. That was so clearly revealed to me as I looked through one old woman’s prayer book, retracing her cares and petitions.

Corpus Christi: Christ Claims All of CreationPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We now know that the created world, which surrounds and sustains us, predates us by so much more time than our minds can comprehend. Corpus Christi reminds us that in the sacrament of his most holy body and blood, Christ claims and consecrates not only us but all of his creation.

Going Forth to Return to MorePodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
“God is love,” Saint John tells us (1 Jn 4:8), not only because God commands us to love, not only because God never ceases to love us. God is love, because, within God’s own self, God simply is a triad of love: a going out in love, a return in love, and thus, ever more, love itself.

Funeral Homily for Brett Patzner: God the BuilderPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We gather at this wooden altar with bread and wine, all the work of human hands. Christ and his saints do as well, which is why we pray, and why we have every confidence, that Brent comes to table with us. He is, and always way, God’s creation, and this is Christ’s eternal feast.

Wherever You Go: Funeral of John and Rosanna RappPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Relationship and commitment were sacred to John and Rosanna. Perhaps that’s why their children have worked so hard to bring their parents’ remains home to Ellinwood and to celebrate their love on the anniversary of their wedding.

When Meaning Overflows the WorldPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Meaning is the deepest sort of spiritual gift. It is as variegated as those who discover it. When the gift exceeds what this world offers, when a surplus of meaning overflows the world, how can we fail to speak of and give glory to the Holy Spirit?
