How Do You Picture Belief & UnbeliefPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Perhaps the picture of belief as a boundary line passed once and for all is inadequate. Maybe we should say that belief and unbelief grow within all of us like flowers and weeds in a garden?

We Create Ourselves in SurrenderPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
When I look at all those votive lights, I cannot help but think of the fear and suffering they speak. Still, some soul is responding to his or her enveloping darkness by turning to God, by lighting a candle. They have arrived at some height of their own unique Calvary. Who can say how much more they will have to climb?

To Whom Shall We Go?Podcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
All of these people know that “here,” the church, is far from perfect. It not only suffers the assaults of hell, sadly, it often enough colludes with the powers of hell. They are not complacent. These people know that hearts cannot be judged but that procedures and punishment do not need to read hearts to be effective.

Funeral Homily for Marilee Huslig: Communion of SaintsPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Who can imagine how many times the closing words of the Hail Mary passed Marilee’s lips. “Pray for us sinners now and the hour of our death.” How well she understood that we stand in a communion of saints; that in our union with Christ and his saints, now and at the hour of our death, is all that matters.

The Assumption in a Summer of ScandalPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Society rightly screams at the Church. Within her ranks, we must struggle against the sad and terrible spread of sin, even as we ponder the silent salvation Christ still works in our midst. And, most of all, we must strive to learn because learning is a grace.

Others Are the Table Christ Sets for USPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Christ is our bread of life. He feeds us in word and sacrament. And he feeds us, quite deliberately, undeniably, and indelibly in each one of us. That’s why Eucharist isn’t something one does alone. We can’t be church, can’t have Eucharist, without being fed by one another. Others are the table Christ sets for us.

Funeral Homily for Margaret ReichuberPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We are on one side of this altar. We believe that Christ, his saints and his angels, stand on the other. Eucharist means “thanksgiving” and every Mass is like the holiday we call “Thanksgiving.” Everyone we’ve ever loved in the Lord still gathers at this table.
