    Offering my next Novena to Saint Joseph for your personal intentions. Each decade will be for each of the four of you (incl. Howard) and the fifth decade for your listeners. Godspeed.

    1. FHL says:

      PS – If I could pick one moment in Church history, I would want to be a nun alongside Saint Scholastica on the last night she was able to visit with her twin brother Saint Benedict. When she prayed to God to extend the visit knowing it would be their last (on earth), by summoning a storm to keep him from leaving the convent to return to his own monastery. I want to be the nun who brought them refreshments or assisted in some way, in order to experience seeing the two of them together during that all night sacred showdown. I have identical twin sons, so that remarkable relationship hits me in my marrow. Saint Scholastica died shortly after that visit, and I would have wanted to be in her presence, offering prayers and fasting and penance and reparation for her convent community and for her brother’s suffering, uniting it all to the Cross during that period of mourning. Wowsa, shivers. Sometimes mighty storms are good! =)

        Hi FHL, Why didn’t you become a Benedictine nun?

    Hi guys,
    Congratulations on your 100th episode, and your achievements to date! That was a great idea to ask some of your listeners to submit videos. Good PR. The videos submitted were done well and the people were interesting. When your podcast wasn’t on last week I worried about RD’s son in the hospital and hoped all was well. I am assuming all is well because nothing was mentioned in today’s episode. Also, congratulations to Vinny D. who received his First Communion.

    As far as your podcasts I know I have seen at least 60 episodes or more than likely more. After I found you in 2018 I caught up with the ones I had missed previous.

    I agree with RS about English Catholicism and RD’s discovery about the ancient philosophers. You are right Fr. Rich about our current lives today within the Church. We all have a particular meaning and mission from God. If you believe that God placed us here then you believe it was for a purpose or part of a larger purpose. Lives lived with meaning. God gives us all meaning as well as mercy, love and compassion on a divine level. God telling us all that we are in this together.

    My school of thought as far as the Jesus and Mary Magdalene question about John’s scripture when Jesus asked that Mary not touch Him was because He was still in the process of transfiguration before returning to God. Fr. Rich you are right about the other point of view – do not cling to humans cling to God and announce His good works point of view.

    That was funny the guy with the video thanking you all for your help with the Black Sabbath, vampires, etc. Good luck to Dale who is in college and deciding if he is being called to the priesthood. God bless whatever path you choose. God will be there to guide you in your choice. Thy will be done.

    God bless the family Weiss and their wonderful announcement of being pregnant. I wish them the best of luck and health. God bless Mr. Perez and may he not test positive for coronavirus. I too thank him for his service to the community of mankind.

    God bless the woman who just got engaged to be married. Her questions were all interesting ones. God bless Loretta Rose who Fr. Rich mentioned is dying. I say the Chaplet of Mercy, as well as the rosary, daily and will make her a special intention.

    Gracie and her electric guitar was fun. She is no fan of guitars for Mass disappointing our guitar playing amigo RS! That was funny.

    Thank you for your advocacy for annulment Fr. Rich.

    The Star Wars allegory was a good one and the inquisition question to Fr. Rich. I too choose the original chemistry and relationship shared by Hans Solo and the Princess.

    RS, you guys set up your own team and you pick your sides on an issue. I have become addicted to your podcast even though there are times when I am unhappy with you and what you are projecting out there into the world. Sometimes you are genuinely acrimonious. Remember as RD said to love your neighbor and that means even AOC! One thing you can always expect from my comments is honesty. That same honesty I share with everyone in my world.

    God bless you guys and stay safe and healthy. Fr, Rich thank you for all your unfailing selfish and loving service to the Lord. Thank you for your prayer to your listeners at the end of the show.

  3. Hello, Boys (Ryan, Ryan and Fr. P):

    Congratulations on #100.

    I too came across your show (accidentally), although I truly believe it was not an accident but because of Divine Providence. I have been sharing the three of you with everyone. You are one of the inspirations behind the endeavor I have been called to, “Coffee Break Catholic”. I am still trying to find my way but would appreciate your prayers. I love the Bobbleheads!

    Question: Can you do an episode that covers the following apparitions from Our Lady and how they impact us today: Our Lady of Guadalupe, LaSalette, Knock, Lourdes, and Fatima? If not that, how about a show that speaks to fallen-away, lapsed, or marginalized Catholics, which is what I was between 1998 and 2017 due to SSA?

    Congrats on your 100th episode. My favorites have been the one about demons because, as a recent convert, it’s difficult for my mind to wrap around the spiritual realm that Protestantism diminishes to boogy-man stories for children. I also appreciated the episode on bad popes and learning that even the pope can be called into question and make errors (as a Protestant, I was told the infallibility applied to the pope’s whole being and was above reproach). I also love the idea that the moon is in the dioconate of Cape Canaveral.
    Keep teaching us about the faith including the lighthearted side.

  6. Kevin Theriault says:

    Congratulations to you all on your 100th episode! I can not remember how I came across your show – but it has been a real blessing! Thank you guys for all you do – I so look forward to each and every episode. Know that I pray for you guys and the show. The work that you do – touches so many of us – a heartfelt thank you!

  7. Rose Fontes says:

    Congratulations on your 100th episode! Thank you so much for coming up with this amazing way of evangelization. The chemistry between the three of you and the love for Our Holy Mother Church really bring across the fraternal love that should define us as Catholics. I also would like to thank you for broadening our knowledge on our faith and I pray that you keep making many more episodes in the future.

    One of my favorite episodes had been the contrast episodes between the greatest and worse popes, the one about the different rites of the Catholic Church, spiritual warfare. Also, as a Mexican Catholic I just love to see your devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe and it just shows that really there are no limits to Our Blessed Mother’s message of evangelization.

    Congratulations and God Bless you all!

    My husband does not believe in Transubstantiation. I bought the 2 books by Penny and Bob Lord about the Miracles of the Eucharist. He is wondering if there have been any hosts tested that have not actually changed into a physical presence as suggested in the 2 books. If it truly is the Body and Blood of Jesus, why not test a regular Sunday host?
    There are so many Catholics who do not believe in the Eucharist…what can be done to educate them…more from the pulpit during the Sunday homily???

  9. Carol says:

    I recently read in the National Catholic Newspaper yesterday about the priest who thought he was a priest but really wasn’t because he was not properly baptized correctly. It said that he wasn’t even a Catholic! Any words about this?

  10. Donna says:

    Father Rich,
    I have been interested in an annulment but my husband does not want to do one for his previous 2 marriages. I am stuck in limbo because of this. Not sure of how to move forward.

  11. Ray says:

    My comment: The show about St. Demis who was on a cross next to Jesus. You missed one very important thing that happened that day. Demis heard about this man called Jesus prior to that day and felt he was unjustly being crucified, however, what put it all together and made him a believer when he was hanging there, is when he saw Jesus’s mother down before her son’s cross. He looked at her intently and remembered her face from about 31 years before. When he had looked at the babies face and eye’s, and then told his partner they should not harm them. She told Demise that he would be blessed for this. Like you mentioned, Demis hoped for a special blessing in regards to what she said for many years, and it connected to him that the man next to him, was that special child that had caused him to give them mercy on their journey that day.
