Let us begin with a pro tip for podcasters - NEVER record an episode during a full moon! (un)Fortunately that's what Linda and Joanne did for this week's installment and you'll be able to tell by how much time we spend off the rails! The dynamic duo did get around to discussing the scriptures and homilies of the day (Joanne had one thanks to Bernadette's notes!) but they also opened a can of worms (as Linda is great at doing) on such topics as the restored order of the Initiation Sacraments, limos and other trappings at 1st Communions and the unveiling of Joanne's new Apple Watch! Throw in Joanne's recalling of her crazy bad week topped by an ER adventure and you have one heck of a episode. Get an extra shot of espresso in your favorite drink and come along for the ride - yikes! (and enjoy!)
We're REALLY going to need YOUR feedback the next two weeks (don't ask but you'll find out on the next podcast) so whether you have thoughts on Triduum, Sacraments, anything we post on the Facebook page or maybe even Jo's watch - you can share them by doing one (or any)of the following:
- drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- call us using the feedback line at 774-955-0659
- jot down your thoughts in the comment box on our website
- check out our Facebook page and post something there
Give us your thoughts and YOU get to direct the course of our episodes (and we need all the help we can get!). Remember - we're all in this together!
If you'd like to read a real intelligent and informative post on the reasons why we need to restore the proper order to the Sacraments of Initiation then check out Billy Kangas' thoughts on the Patheos website. Maybe sharing it with your Bishop might also be in order...just a suggestion... ;)
If you're still in a liturgical mood after that, check out PrayTell's entry on What's Broken with the Church's Liturgy by Msgr. M. Francis Mannion. MMC's own Linda Reid shares her thoughts in the comment box (and see, we leave feedback as well!).
Remember - after listening or watching our podcast, check out thoughts on next week's readings over at Hearing the Word brought to you each week by Pat Reid, Linda's husband.
We'll also be featuring from time to time the homilies of another pastor of souls all the way from Montana - Fr. Cory Sticha. You can check out his website here and see him along with Captain Jeff and the others on Catholic Weekend. Please support this program and any others you may fancy at SQPN because they, along with the Catholics Next Door, have been very good about promoting our little podcast. It's the least we can do to repay their kindness.
