Partisanship & the Kingdom of GodPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Political parties are engines of self-interest, presenting themselves as saviors. Good government must rise above partisanship. It must contain our essential selfishness, our desire to dominate others. If it does this, it creates a space for the Gospel to be heard and for saner, less selfish spirits to lead.

Mother & Son in the deep design of GodPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Sin brought death, as we experience it, into the world. Calvary overturned its direction. Everlasting death was the fruit of sin. Now, death is the portal that sets us free from the very possibility of sin. Mary was inseparable from Jesus in the plan of God. Soon enough, when death sets us free from sin, we will be as well.

Surrendering Our Strength: Funeral of Larry SiefersPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
A welder takes a solid, inflexible object and, with skill and fire, crafts something new of it. Our Lord, in his inscrutable wisdom and mercy, twice laid Larry low. Not to humble his pride, no greater than that of any other man, but to make of his spirit something subtle and suitable for the Lord.

Missing Meals = Missing GracePodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Fast food makes only one promise. That it is fast. Christ promises to feed us with food that will last. But there is a cost. We need to be at his table. And, when we are not, we need to slow down.

How we know God intends to be fairPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
To preach Jesus is primarily to preach a path, a call to action, not ethical precepts. We can declare precepts to be fulfilled, but Christ is a path, leading us all the way home.

Christ Comforts Us at EucharistPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
The prayers of the Eucharist do not speak of what should be, of what might be. The confidently address God because, in this moment, even as we await the realization of righteousness, the comfort of the kingdom has come for us.

Romance Requires RevvingPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Christ is not in the business of keeping ledgers. He loves us without measure, and he shows that to us every day of our lives. He expects the same from us. Something a bit extravagant, novel and unexpected. That is how one romances.

The Greatest Gift of the GardenPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
On this day heaven and earth are truly wed. On this day, under the appearance of bread and wine, Christ claims creation itself to be his eucharistic body and blood, much like he once and forever claimed our humanity to be his own. And in the tabernacle we call a faithful heart, we receive him into ourselves.
