Liturgy Live - 4th Sunday in Advent
This week's podcast we discuss King David's desire to give to the Lord. The desire to give to the Lord is good. This interaction with King David and the Lord shows us that the Lord wants to give us more than we can imagine when we desire to give of ourselves for His glory. This culminates in the great fiat of Mary. Her desire to be the handmaid of the Lord is returned in her role as Mother of the Savior and the Queen of Heaven.

Liturgy Live - 2nd Sunday in Advent - Prepare the Way of the Lord
This week on the podcast we talk about how Isaiah called for the proclamation of the "good news" in earnest. In his time and in the fulfillment of Christ, we are to proclaim the Gospel of our Salvation. St Peter reminds us that the judgement is coming, we need to be prepared because we do not know when. Each generation has had signs to encourage us to turn to Christ before it is too late. Christ desires for all to repent, and we should be praying for that to fulfill the desires of God. Fr Ian announced that we have a new platform for Catholics to converse outside of the normal Social Media sphere. HealthyMinds is a community platform you can join and it functions similar to social media but without the ads and the drama. We are hosting an Advent Meditations Group on that platform that contains daily meditations on the Mass readings and a very short video for more understanding and ideas to contemplate. Come join us! https://healthyminds.webflow.io

Liturgy Live - 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Strange Authority
This week on the podcast we talk about how God gave power and authority to King Cyrus, even though he was a Gentile. Through Cyrus the Isrealites were able to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. God was able to use Cyrus as a tool, even though he was not the tool that was preferred or expected. In our lives it is good to contemplate how God is using imperfect people, maybe even strange authority, to bring about His will.

Liturgy Live - 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fire in my Heart
This week we talk about the raw reality that the Prophet Jeremiah expresses in the reading. Being a faithful servant to the Lord is extremely difficult. It always has been. We won't always understand what God is doing, when we are confused we might even try to go against His will. Discernment and prayer for God's will even in confusion is necessary

Liturgy Live - 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time - Who Has Known
This week on the Podcast we talk about the authority given to flawed humans by God. How abusing that Authority will bring punishment upon yourself and the people you lead. The other side is to remember the humanity of the authority, and understand the requirement to charitably follow the lead. As long as that lead is not sinful. God has a plan in the midst of corruption.

Liturgy Live - 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fear No One
In the readings this week we encounter the Prophet Jeremiah and his inner battle. He is tempted to denounce the Lord, he is also being watched by his friends for any misstep to trap him in. These inner temptations of Jeremiah are the real temptations of our culture at the moment. We are reminded in that moment to trust in the Lord. Jesus in the Gospel says to "Fear no one." We are called to live in the midst of the chaos in the trust of Christ.

Liturgy Live - Corpus Christi
We are being tested during this time of crisis. God is looking to see if you remember that He provides for you. He will guide you and provide for you. We are being allowed to feel the hunger for the Body and Blood of Christ, how are we to respond to the invitation back to Mass? This is a time of conversion, healing, and trust.

Liturgy Live - Most Holy Trinity - Conversion is the Way
Our world is in chaos, and we are in need of hope. Conversion of heart to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and reception of the Sacraments and living a moral life is the only way forward. What a controversial statement. We believe that Christ is the Way. Christ told us Himself, He is the Way. When will we start actually living the Gospel? When we live the Gospel we will love God and love neighbour. Chaos cannot thrive in a relationship of virtue in love. Each of us needs to grow in continuous conversion and renewal of heart. Then we will see the change that we long for.

Liturgy Live - 5th Sunday in Easter - Leadership
Welcome back to the podcast! Congratulations to Alanna for finishing her Masters! Our topic this week is leadership, and how we can find the points needed from the scriptures this week. We have to understand that there are multiple levels of leadership like the apostles found out and ordained the Deacons. We talk about the reality if being connected in Christ, even when we are at home and the grace from the Mass still reaches us. And we talk about how important it is to believe that we can do great things through the grace of Christ.

Liturgy Live - 3rd Sunday in Lent - Reveal the Well
This week on the podcast we talk about how Moses was able to be real with God. He prayed in a way that showed his frustration with the people of Israel. The people knew what they needed but they didn't ask God for it. In the Gospel we talk about the woman at the well, who didn't know to ask Christ for water, but he revealed what she needed and she asked. The Lord is so gentle with us when we are receptive to His mercy. He reveals the well in our hearts that is the spring of water welling up to eternal life.

Liturgy Live - 2nd Sunday in Lent - On the Mountain
On this second Sunday in lent we talk about aversion to climbing the mountain. When we make it to the top, we also don't want to leave. We don't like the cross, nor do we like the climb of exercising virtue to get up the mountain. We are to go as the Lord directs us, as Abram did when he leaves his father and follows the Lord. If the Lord is calling you, GO! Obedience to the Lord comes up a lot especially in Lent.

Liturgy Live - 1st Sunday in Lent - Our Temptations
This week on the Podcast we talk about temptations. Specifically the first temptation of Adam and Eve and the temptations of Christ in the desert. Most of our sins fall into the three categories of sin, our base passions, our vanity and our pride. We discuss fasting and finding the sweet spot of suffering where growth is possible. In our temptations they will look like the gifts that God has given us, the other trees were good for food and beautiful to look at, the lack of obedience and taking something that has not been offered is where we go wrong.

Liturgy Live - 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Be Perfect
This week we talk about how to respond to division in the Church. Do not let others action drag you into sin. Focus on contemplation, be prepared even for distractions, so you will not be disturbed in those moments. When you have control over your own passions and emotions you can have a positive effect on those around you without being controlling. Be holy as the LORD is holy, then you will be able to love your neighbor as yourself.#Catholicpodcast #Catholic #SundayReadings

Liturgy Live - 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Salt and Light
This weeks podcast we talk about the "proto" beatitudes of Isaiah. How we are called to serve and feed the poor. We are called to purge ourselves of our maliciousness and serve the poor, then we will be light in the darkness. In the second reading we talk about the power of the gospel on its own, no matter our weakness. In the gospel we talk about how we are called to be salt, and we are called to be light.

Liturgy Live - Presentation of the Lord - Church People
This week we talk a lot about the people you will find in the church. Those who withstand the refiners fire that is parish life, who wait on the Lord. In the second reading we talk about how Christ suffered and we can find Him in our sufferings. After the Gospel we talk about how there are labels that are self placed or placed by others in the Church and we need to see through them to the actual person and be able to love the person. We can, and are commanded to, love people that we don't agree with. There is a lot of healing to do in Church culture and serving, others who we disagree with will go a long way towards that healing.

Liturgy Live - 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Hope in Darkness
This week we talk about the hope that can be found in desolation. When we are dealing with the mundane and the everyday-ness of life we can tend to lose our drive and excitement in our mission. When we have patience in the desolation and seek to be in a continuous state of grace we can be fruitful even through our times of desolation. Christ is the light and we are called to bear Him to the nations.

Liturgy Live - 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Humility in Teamwork
This week we talk about The prophesy of Isaiah that can be looked at in three different ways. First and foremost, Christ is the fulfillment of this prophesy. Second, St John the Baptist is God's servant and draws the people out into the wilderness seeking repentance and restoration. Third we are also called to be the light to the nations and to bring salvation to the ends of the earth. Again we discuss the need for us to decrease so Christ can increase in our lives. We talk a lot about how we arent always the hero of our own story, we are sometimes a supporting actor. The roles that we play in teamwork most likely are supporting roles and it is a place to have joy in humility.

Liturgy Live - Baptism of the Lord
This week on the Podcast we talk about the prophecy of the baptism and the fulfilment in Christ. We really go into our response to holiness. In maturity we are able to rejoice in the gifts of others, not tear them down in jealousy or envy. We talk about how John recognised his role and questioned his worthiness to complete it. It was allowed for the fulfilment of scripture. We also talk about attitudes in which we question God in our confusion or misunderstanding, John does not fall into the same sin as his father.
