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.

Struggle with the Senseless: Funeral of Brett MoederPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
At the foot of the cross, in the face of death, all that we can do is cling to one another in love. That is what it means to be Church, to be nourished and cleansed in the blood and water, flowing from the side of Christ. We lose a beloved Son. Let us find in each other the love and the comfort of the Church, the new life, which the dying Christ has brought into the world.

Living Our Life BackwardPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Do we draw great comfort and solace from this feast? That depends upon our faith, how strong it is. If we truly believe that the future, our future, belongs to Christ, the champion who loves us, we can live the passing days in peace.

Our Daily Bread: Funeral of Tillie PenkaPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
Like that daily bread she baked for so many years, her life has become a Eucharist, an act of thanksgiving to God. She now offers it to God, a good and pleasing sacrifice of love. If we wish to look for her now, we must seek her out at Christ’s table, his altar of sacrifice, where the Bread of Life awaits.

Getting the Spirit Knocked Out of YouPodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
When the Spirit is knocked out of you, you understand that it was never really yours. That is when you pray, which is a way of resolving to push on, to look for a meaning beyond yourself, beyond your own life.

What Adam Found in Eve: Wedding of Ryan and BrigettePodcast
by Fr Terrance Klein
We are not outside today, in some lovely spot, where we can talk about the beauty of love in the beauty of nature. We are in church, before the altar of God, because, for this man and woman, marriage is a way of surrendering themselves to God. “The human soul, which is the betrothed of God, give itself to Him alone.”
