64 We Can’t Live Without The Mass – Martyrs of Abitene

64 We Can’t Live Without The Mass – Martyrs of Abitene

June 3, 2022

The Martyrs of Abitene (Tunisia) were tortured and executed for celebrating Mass on Sunday under the persecution of Diocletian (4th Century A.D.). What was so important in the Eucharist that they “couldn’t live without the Mass”? What does the Lord promise to give us through the Eucharist and the Sacraments? What gave these men and women the courage to die for Christ?

61 Your Name is Written on the Palm of God’s Hands

61 Your Name is Written on the Palm of God’s Hands

May 13, 2022

Why do we say "AMEN" at the end of our prayers? What repercussions does it have for our life? “Amen” expresses both God’s faithfulness and man’s trust in God’s promises. To say “amen” implies believing and trusting in God's fidelity—an attitude that is not commonly found in the world today.

- Scripture Passages: Isaiah 49:14-16 (the palm of God’s hands); Revelation 3:14 (Christ is the Amen); Matthew 24:35 (My words will not pass away); 2 Cor 1:18-20 (God is faithful, Jesus is “yes”, see footnote in NAB.)

59 Frodo, Gollum and Mount Doom

59 Frodo, Gollum and Mount Doom

April 29, 2022

In today’s episode, starting from a scene taken from the Lord of the Rings, I discuss the Private Judgment which will happen at the end of our lives, eternal salvation, Heaven and Hell. These are truths that Jesus Christ revealed both through parables and through His interactions with different people. Two of the clearest expressions of these truths are the parable of The Rich Man and Lazarus (Lk 16:19-31) and the words of Jesus to the Good Thief while hanging from the Cross (Lk 23:43). Above all, you should always TRUST in the infinite MERCY of God, that, while you’re in this life, He will always forgive all your sins, if you come to Him asking forgiveness with a contrite heart!

 

- Scriptural quotes: Mt 13:24-30 (Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds); Luke 16:19-31 (Parable of The Rich Man and Lazarus); Luke 23:43 (Words of Christ to the Good Thief).

- Homily of Pope Benedict XVI on the Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds: Angelus, 17 July 2011 | BENEDICT XVI (vatican.va)

58 In Christ We Can Live for Ever – Memento Mori

58 In Christ We Can Live for Ever – Memento Mori

April 22, 2022

In today’s episode I talk about the finitude of our temporal life, and the eternity of life in Heaven. “Memento mori” is a phrase that has become a bit of a fad in certain environments today, but it has been around in Christian culture for many centuries. While the secular world sees death in a negative and sometimes pessimistic way, the death and resurrection of Christ has given it a whole new and positive meaning. At the end, I share a simple experience that happened some weeks ago. “In all you do, remember the end of your life, and then you will never sin.” (Sirach 7:36)

- Scriptural quotes: Philippians 1:23; Wisdom 1:13; Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23;
