God's HumorPodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
What if God came to us, clothed in simple human desire, woven in all-too-human words? What if God became the very cousin of a foolishly beheaded prophet? What a sense of humor such a God would have! If such a God existed, how else could one define this divinity, other than joy itself?

The Steps of San ClementePodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
You need to show up, every week, because religion isn’t something that can be done for you, and you will not find self-fulfillment on your own.

Advent: Nothing To DoPodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
In Advent, as in liturgy, we wait. We nurse the promises, ponder their meaning, and attend their fulfillment. Nothing alters in the world while we are at liturgy. It’s we who change. Liturgy leavens us for the world.

We Are Not AfraidPodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
Christ is not, and never was, a crusader. His standard cannot be raised to correct or to coerce others by means of violence. The Christian must strive to live, and even to die, as Christ did: generous in adversity, vulnerable in love.

A Better Picture of HeavenPodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
You cannot see what you do not picture. Meaning that, you need some idea of what you’re looking for if you’re going to find it. A great challenge of the Christian life is imagining the life to come.

If Anguish Were VisiblePodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
The last day of life is like those that precede it. Either we open ourselves to the mystery or we withdraw into the citadel of the self. For the human person, who is created to be open—to the world, to others, to God—such a retreat, into the self, is truly the end.

The Final MercyPodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
To pray is to call down the eternal into the temporal, which is what we do today for our dead. Some are not yet with God, yet they have been claimed by God. They are God’s own. They are our own. And so we pray that God purify them, that God grant them the final mercy, which is to ready them for himself.

Anxiety and SanctityPodcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
Most of what makes us anxious has nothing to do with holiness. It’s woven from the mundane, the personal and the petty. It passes. We need to remember that. When holiness is the focus of our life, anxiety begins to fade.

'Encore Un Moment'Podcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
In the end—at the end—the human heart has only one plea. It wants to live. It knows that it was not created to go down into the darkness. “Just one moment more. A small moment.”

America: God's Chosen?Podcast
by Fr. Terrance W. Klein
We are called to a heroism beyond bullets and battlefields. Justice and peace are of God. To receive them, the depths of the human must be laid open. God’s city upon a hill, wherever it rises, is a city that remembers the poor, that welcomes the stranger, that enables all its citizens.
