The Fr. Joe Podcast #14 The Feast Of St. Thomas Aquinas

Today I would like to talk to you about St. Thomas Aquinas.  He was a Doctor of the Church and ranked his feast with those of the four great Latin fathers: Ambrose, Augustine of Hippo, Jerome and Gregory.  In 1880, Saint Thomas Aquinas was declared patron of all Catholic educational establishments.  He had the nickname “Dumb Ox.”  I’ll explain.  Peace be with you.

The Fr. Joe Podcast #13 Saying Mass And Some Random Thoughts

As many of you know, I’m retired.  Well, kind of.   A wise person once said, “If you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life.”  How true.  Today, I’ll chat with Ken about my normal day and how being a Priest keeps me busy.  Peace be with you.

The Fr. Joe Podcast #12 Forgiveness

Today, I would like to talk to you about “Forgiveness.”  Seem simple.  “I’m sorry for…” You can fill in the rest.  Put as simply as possible, forgiveness is releasing the other from the penalty of sin so the relationship can be restored. I hope to explain.  Peace be with you.

The Fr. Joe Podcast #11 The Conversion Of St. Paul

Today I would like to talk to you about the Conversion of Saint Paul.  We celebrate the feast on January 25th.  If Saint Paul were alive today we may consider him to be a “Bully.”  Prior to meeting Jesus, he berated the Christians. Then, one sentence determined his new theology when the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting”.  I hope to explain.  Peace be with you.
