Ep. 121 - Pentecost Season Finale

5/20/2024
It's our Season 7 finale and Fr Andrew joins in as a special guest for the entire episode as we're talking First Communions, broken ACs, Pentecost, truth, the winds of change, obedience, and priestly assignments. In sports, the Panthers are moving on to the ECF against the Rangers, Fr Andrew gives a way-too-early prediction on his New York Giants season, and we're cautiously optimistic about the 'Canes this fall. Be sure to stick around through the end as Fr Andrew bids the podcast farewell ahead of his June re-assignment to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

Ep. 120 - Eyes on the Prize

5/13/2024
It's our second to last episode before summer break and this week is all about Mother's Day and the Ascension. You'd probably never associate the two things together, but Fr Manny threads the needle beautifully and leads us into a great discussion on the love and sacrifice of motherhood and what that can teach us about living out our faith daily. In sports, the Panthers steal a game in Boston (yes, we think we got away with one - but no complaints here!) and are on the verge of clinching a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals. And we're talking a little golf... of our own! Game on!

Ep. 119 - Lay Down Your Life

5/6/2024
This episode goes longer than usual and honestly, we could have probably kept going! This weekend's Gospel has so much depth to it as we discern and live out our Christian vocations and Christ's call to lay down one's life for your friends - the ultimate act of love. In sports, it's race weekend - from the Kentucky Derby's photo finish to the closest finish in NASCAR history, to the spectacle that was the F1 Miami Grand Prix. Now it's time for some more Panthers hockey! #BeatBoston

Ep. 118 - Remain On the Vine

4/29/2024
This week we're talking wine... I mean, vine! Without Jesus, we can do nothing. The call and challenge of the Gospel this week is to remain connected to the vine and allow the Lord to prune whatever needs pruning, so that we can bear fruit abundantly!

Ep. 117 - Follow His Voice

4/22/2024
It's Good Shepherd Sunday, so pray for priests and pray for vocations! This week's episode is all about the Good Shepherd, willing to suffer and give his life for his flock. This is just as true about Jesus as it is about the priesthood. In sports, it's playoff time for the Panthers and Heat! The Marlins finally didn't lose a series!

Ep. 116 - Finding Peace

4/15/2024
It's another milestone day on MMH as we've completed the full 3-Year cycle of readings and are right back where we started on Day 1 in 2021! It's also a milestone day in the parish as our STS 2nd graders celebrated their First Communion this weekend and our season of sacramental celebrations is well underway. On this week's podcast, we reflect on the response of the disciples as Jesus again appears to them. Is our own response to the Lord one of fear and skepticism or is it one of incredulous joy? What does finding the peace that Christ offers us look like? In sports, Jorge finally watched the Masters and we gear up for Panthers playoff hockey on tap, and the Heat in the play-in tournament!

Ep. 115 - The Grace to Feel Forgiven

4/8/2024
Happy Easter! We're back from a brief post-Easter break and it's a jam-packed episode as we talk about Holy Week, Easter weekend, Divine Mercy, and "Quasimodo Sunday." Queue up the bells of Notre Dame! As we reflect on these last two weeks and continue praying for our 15 newly baptized parishioners, the invitation this week is to pray for the grace to feel forgiven. Like newborn babes, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation; for you have tasted the kindness of the Lord. In sports, we air out our frustration with the Marlins, talk Women's Basketball, and Fr Manny attempts to bring wrestling into the conversation but is quickly shut down!

Ep. 114 - The Silence of the Cross

3/25/2024
After spending some time reflecting on the Palm Sunday liturgy, we reflect on Jesus' last words on the cross in the Gospel of Mark. He cries out to his Father, and the response is...silence. How many times have we turned to God in moments of trial and desperation and have heard only silence from God? We are invited as we begin Holy Week to confront the silence of the cross and enter into the passion of our Lord. In sports, Father Manny and Jorge sift through the rubble of their NCAA Tournament brackets. We recap a good weekend for the Panthers and an even better weekend for the USA Men's Soccer Team. Finally, we preview the upcoming MLB season while doing a very deep dive on what is going on with Shohei Ohtani and his interpreter's huge gambling debt. Could it really take down baseball's biggest star?

Ep. 113 - Passiontide

3/18/2024
On this V Sunday of Lent we begin the period known as Passiontide. You may have noticed the church looked a little different than usual as we veiled the statues for the first time in many years. As we continue moving towards Holy Week and the celebration of the Lord's Passion, we are called to enter into that suffering with him. In sports, we're starting to talk baseball, with Opening Day just around the corner! And get ready for March Madness!

Ep. 112 - Embrace the Cross

3/11/2024
We're 3 Sunday away from Easter and as we come into the home stretch of Lent, the call for this week is to embrace the cross. It's only fitting that our church AC went out this Sunday and we were all made to feel a little uncomfortable during Mass. There's a profound lesson to be learned in being comfortable with the uncomfortable! In the second segment, Jorge finally made it out to an InterMiami soccer match and Fr Manny recaps his Oscars scorecard. Don't forget to like, comment on, rate/review, and share the podcast!

Ep. 111 - Tossing Tables

3/4/2024
As we hit the halfway point of Lent, it's a perfect opportunity to pause and reflect: are we any different today than we were on Ash Wednesday? As we hear the Gospel account of Jesus tossing tables in the Temple, take these final weeks of Lent to let the Lord come into your heart and begin to toss tables and drive out sin. In sports, it was a winning weekend as we continue through the mid-season lull. Stay tuned through the end as Fr. Manny previews the 2024 Oscars!

Ep. 110 - Listen to Him

2/26/2024
It's a pretty wide-ranging episode this week as we cover Sunday's readings, a holocaust survivor's presentation to our school's 6th graders, sacred silence, and learning how to pray. In sports, we scratch and claw for something to talk about and finally landed on trying to make sense of the upcoming 12-team College Football Playoff format.

Ep. 109 - A God Full of Promises

2/19/2024
Time and again in the Bible, God enters in covenants with his people. Today we talk about the promises that God makes to us and if we hold up our end of these covenants. Lent is a time to recommit ourselves to the life we are called to live as Christians. The ashes we received on Ash Wednesday are a sign of that commitment to keep our end of God's covenant with us. In the second segment, we are in a sports wasteland, so we dive into a recently published list of the greatest songs of all time. Let's just say that many hot takes are given. Happy Presidents Day!

Ep. 108 - Come To Jesus

2/12/2024
It's Super Bowl Monday and we take the opportunity to dive deep into not just the weekend readings in the leadup to Lent, but also the buzzy "He Gets Us" Super Bowl commercial. The entire Lenten season is a prolonged "Come to Jesus" moment. What is it that we want to bring to Him ahead of our Easter celebrations this year?

Ep. 107 - A Convincing Authority

1/29/2024
In this week's Gospel we hear Jesus teach with authority. Do we allow Him to the time and space to speak with that same authority in our lives? What does trusting in the Lord really look like in the day-to-day journey of faith? In sports - Taylor Swift the Chiefs are heading to the Super Bowl against the Niners. We come out firing with some hot takes on both of the Conference Championship Games.

Ep. 106 - March for Life 2024

1/22/2024
In our Season 7 debut we recap the ADOM/COTLF pilgrimage to the March for Life this past weekend before diving into the Sunday readings. Can you recall a time you recognized or responded to the call of the Lord? Cherish that memory and revisit it often! In sports, we say farewell to the Dolphins and look ahead to the Conference Championship matchups and Super Bowl.

Ep. 105 - Joyful, Joyful

12/18/2023
It's our Season 6 finale! With one week to go before Christmas, this week is all about JOY, which is the true mark of a Christian. "A joyless Christian is a useless Christian." What is it that brings you joy? We'll be off until mid-January when we return for Season 7, so we wish all our listeners and friends a blessed final week of Advent, a very merry Christmas, and a happy New Year!

Ep.104 - Hagan Lio!

12/11/2023
With 2 weeks left until Christmas, we hear the call from St. John the Baptist to "make straight the way for the Lord." If we take that message to heart, we can understand it as a call to live an authentic Christianity - one that may be uncomfortable and unpopular, but also one that will bring with it a deep and abiding Peace. As we continue preparing our hearts and homes for Christmas, we discuss what it really means to make a place for the Lord in our life. In sports, the NFL had another week of crazy upsets, MLB trades and free agent signings are starting to heat up (Ohtani signed for how much!?), and we want bowl season chaos!

Ep. 103 - It’s the - Lack - of Hope that Kills You!

12/4/2023
We enter into the liturgical season of Advent on Parish Fair weekend, and what a beautiful weekend it was! We reflect on the joys and successes of the Parish Fair and the incredible sense of community that is fostered on those fair grounds. As we begin the Advent journey to Christmas, we break down the first reading from Isaiah. They say it's the hope that kills you, but we couldn't disagree more! In sports (or what little of it we caught this weekend): It's all about CFP controversy! Don't forget to like, comment on, rate/review, and share the podcast! Have any questions you'd like Fr.
