***Edited - we forgot (well, Joanne did...) to thank our friends Greg and Jennifer Willits for their kind shout out on their most excellent podcast THE CATHOLICS NEXT DOOR. Go check them out along with their equally excellent apostolate NEW EVANGELIZERS. And let them know we sent you!!!
A BIG MMC welcome to all those who are discovering us for the 1st time from their suggestion! Your feedback is welcomed here as well so don't be shy!
It's been a wild week in the Catholic world and the Ladies of MMC get a chance to discuss some of it, thanks to the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. Besides our regular unpacking of last weekend's homilies, we talk about the announcement of Bishop-elect Robert Barron's move to Los Angeles and the number one topic YOU wanted to hear about: CATHOLIC FUNERAL TRIBULATIONS! Position that comfy chair close to the nearest fan and grab a cold one as we attempt to make some sense of it all once again -- enjoy!
P.S. -- anyone recognize where we might have gotten the idea for this week's episode title? Hint: think 1960's Si-Fi...
Thanks to all of you who read, liked and shares our top article on Facebook this week. Until Episode 090 we will listen and respond to the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE on issue YOU want discussed so this is how it works:
- Each week, besides our regular feedback and homily segments, you will help us choose another topic for our discussion
- Be sure you are following us on Facebook by liking our page facebook.com/mondaymorningcatholic
- Every week between episodes we will post links to stories and topics of interest to you and us
- "Like", comment on or share the ones YOU think we should tackle by Saturday morning and we'll choose ONE for the next episode.
I (Joanne) wonder what we'll be talking about with our special guests next week? Stay tuned and thank for being a big part of our discussions on the podcast.
Here is a partial list of Catholic clergy who record and post their homilies online each week - if you know of any others you think we should pass along then please let us know!
