Ash Wednesday: Do You Love Me?Podcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We need asceticism. We need Lent. We need Ash Wednesday. We need Valentine’s Day. Not to earn anything. Not to prove anything. Only because, whether divine or human, love must bespeak itself, become something visible, something tangible.

Who is not here? And why?Podcast
by Fr Terrance Klein

The Prophets of Social MediaPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein

Christmas is not a disposable feast: Solemnity of Mary, Mother of GodPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein

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.

Ready for Christmas: Funeral of Bob RobinsPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
If Christ finds us ready, Christmas is a perfect day to enter heaven, to begin its new life. So what separates King Herod from the Magi, the inn keepers from the shepherds? This is what we want to know, and, I think, this is what we can learn from Bob.
