While you may think the title of this week's MMC episode is a little wacked, it actually is more perfect than you think! You'll just have to listen/watch to find out...

Apologies for the sparse website content and the lateness of the post but that's what happens when Joanne goes on a weekend retreat with teens and has to function the next day. Thanks for understanding and, as usual, ENJOY!

With the gentlemen of the podcast shoveling out after the first "significant" snowfall of 2016, the ladies of MMC took up a cup and to the airwaves ready to discuss a number of equally significant topics. From hard-to-read feedback and an altar made of snow to the weekend's homilies and a common date for all Christians to celebrate Easter the gals covered it all in style -- and with a few laughs along the way. Grab your own cuppa and a comfy chair to join in on it all -- enjoy!

We've said it many times (well..Joanne does...) that we just LOVE your FEEDBACK and SUGGESTIONS!  Maybe you'd like to share a bit about yourself like John from Wakima and Bernadette from Lakeville have already done - or maybe you just want to share a homily or a topic with the community. If you'd like in on the fun then here's what you need to do:

Don't let the title lead you astray! We here at MMC are not frustrated or disgruntled by the intense and sometimes very wordy fourth gospel  but, rather, are quoting one of our homilists that sometimes one needs a shovel to get through the many layers of this singular account of Jesus's life. Rising to the challenge, Linda, Joanne and a late arriving Steve shared their best Wedding at Cana homilies along with this week's VOTP concerning Catholic wedding vows and concluding with a tech demonstration from none other than Linda! Also, we get to know more about one of our regular community members. It's definitely a chock full episode so grab your favorite beverage and a comfy seat and join us. As always, thanks for your support and enjoy!

It may be a New Year but we're still sounding a familiar call for you to send us your FEEDBACK and SUGGESTIONS!  Maybe you'd like to share a bit about yourself like John from Wakima did this week - we'd love to get to know our community better. If you'd like to do so then here's what you need to do:

  • drop us an email to mondaymorningcatholic@gmail.com
  • call us using the feedback line at 774-955-0659
  • jot down your thoughts in the comment box on this website
  • check out our Facebook page and post something or comment there

Honorable Mentions

If you really want to savor and digest the entire homily from Bishop Barron that Joanne shared this week then mosey over to wordonfire.org  and check out not only his sermons but his new podcast.

Steve shared with us that his parish handed out copies of Matthew Kelly's new book REDISCOVERING JESUS for Christmas. If you want to know more about this latest offering of his or anything else he has available then check out his website dynamiccatholic.com

With the conclusion of the Christmas Season, the MMC crew reflects on Christmas past and prepares to take a brief liturgical rest before embarking on Lent 2016. Linda, Nancy, Joanne and Jason share an abundance of baptismal homilies, a VOTP (Voice of the People) article on NOT sharing your junk with the poor and when are the use of Christmas carol melodies just too much. Pull up a comfy chair, a cold or hot drink and join us for another spirited discussion - enjoy!

Happy New Year!

We're baaaaaack...well...some of us are...

Linda and Joanne return to MMC after a 3 week hiatus and with LOTS of feedback, a couple of VOICE OF THE PEOPLE topics and, of course, the weekly homilies they are NOT at a loss for things to talk about. A new regular crew member was announced as well so this is one episode you can't miss! Curl up in that comfy chair with one last New Year's beverage and, as always, ENJOY!

And thanks to all who kept Joanne and her family in their thoughts and prayers over the last few weeks - it was much needed and appreciated.

Round two begins (ding, ding, ding!). We continue our 100th Episode celebration with getting to know our host and moderator a little better and then move on to sharing some of the more memorable (and not) events of the podcast, a redux of the "10 Things You Might Be Doing Wrong at Mass" with the entire crew and our hopes for the future of this little "experiment." Ring in the New Year with Linda, Nancy, Stephen and Joanne - get comfy and get some holiday cheer and listen along (remember, no video again - sorry...). Enjoy and a Happy, Blessed New Year from all of us at Monday Morning Catholic! 

Help us start the New Year off right by sending us your FEEDBACK and SUGGESTIONS!  Maybe you'd like to share a bit about yourself like we did - we'd love to get to know our community better. If you'd like to do so then here's what you need to do:

Well, it took us an extra week to make this happen but -- TADA! -- it's finally here! The 100th installment of the Monday Morning Catholic Podcast is ready for YOU...well, sort of. You see, the crew was so chatty we talked for almost TWO HOURS and since we wanted to be mindful of our community's shorter attention span during the Christmas holidays, we decided to "divide and conquer" by splitting the show in half and releasing it over 2 weeks. This also gives the crew some well deserved time off so it works out for everyone! We hope you enjoy the "Podaversary" and we thank you once again for listening/watching our little contribution to the New Evangelization. 

Speaking of watching...Joanne apologizes profusely for having a little problem with the video for this episode. She promises in the future NOT to delete ANYTHING from YouTube before she is ABSOLUTELY SURE she has it safely in her computer. =)

Enjoy...and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
