by Fr Terrance Klein
If at the start of this year, you resolve to pay attention to what happens within you, you will be able to watch God at work. But you cannot do that if you do not understand and accept how near to you God is.

Christmas is not a disposable feast: Solemnity of Mary, Mother of GodPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Christmas is not a disposable feast. It doesn’t just set the stage for the passion. That night in a Bethlehem manger, a new creation came to birth. A new Adam and a new Eve once again stood in unity of purpose with ox and ass.

Holy Family: Grief is the price we pay for lovePodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Do not ponder this family in shame. Find instead a solace. No one can love us like family, and no one can hurt us like family. All of us know how right the queen was. “Grief is the price we pay for love.” Surely then, in this fallen world, we can find consolation, knowing that even this family, which we so rightly call holy, paid the very same price.

The Parish As a Circle of ComfortPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
To be parish is to be a place, to be a people, where God’s command to comfort the other is fulfilled. Parishes are not distribution centers, which we choose on the basis of our preferences in schedules, music and preaching. They are living circles of comfort, communities with faces that hold real meaning for each other.

Immaculate Conception: Of Happenstance and Too Much HappinessPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
When the created heart of Mary offered her flawless “yes,” humanity itself, in one instance, gave itself, utterly and completely, to God. Greater than all the saints, this is salvation wholly satisfied. Gabriel was not engaging in hyperbole when he called her “full of grace” (Lk 1:28).

Preaching Sin, Yesterday and TodayPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
I will go home and ask these things of myself. You do the same. We cannot throw grace at another. Each of us must make some small opening in ourselves. And to do that, we have to find our own wounds.
