  1. Just curious. Father Pagano what order do you belong to? Ryan S. I know the other Ryan studied to be a priest. Where does your knowledge come from? Are you a historian? Love, love, love the show.

      Father Rich is a priest of the Diocese of Saint Augustine. Ryan S would consider himself an armchair historian who just likes to read and accumulate knowledge.

    Noticed that you were all drinking Starbucks coffees…just thought you might want to know that they are a contributor to Planned Parenthood…

    As far as making the oceans of the world holy water, you might want to consider the facts of what goes on in and on the oceans of the world.
    I mean, would you put a fish into a bowl of holy water, where it would expel its waste into the water?
    If so, then why not bless the water in a toilet bowl?
    People are murdered by forced drowning in the oceans.
    Naval battles are fought on the oceans.
    Submarines carrying WMDs patrol the depths.
    I know you’re not serious about actually making the oceans’ water holy, but I think joking like that trivializes holy water.
    Just my opinion, for whatever it’s worth.

    I really like what you guys do! I’m Cheryl from Jakarta, Indonesia. I’m currently making a research about ginger bread in Russia. From several youtube videos I have accumulated the knowledge about the ginger coming from South East Asia through European traders (*Portuguese; a large possibility)…and then to other countries of western Europe. The medieval moulding is rarely used in America, but in Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and Western countries that is still keeping the tradition, the ginger bread maker are still using the intricate moulding that was inherited by the Pastoral Community long long time ago. But I do not know how the ginger bread legacy from Pastoral community in Western EU entered Russia.

    Are there history books that is available on free downloadable e-pdf that you can recommend me so I can study more about this?

    Thanks a lot, guys!
    God Bless you.
