    Hi guys,
    This was more of one long commercial than a podcast. The items for sale sound great but you are getting carried away with advertising for your sponsors. My opinion.

    I did find the information about candles and blessings interesting though in between the plugs.

    Ryan Dellacrosse, that’s my favourite part of the Mass.
    Fruit of the earth, work of human hands.
    Fruit of the vine, work of human hands.
    That God could have chosen anything, a fig, an olive, etc. But He chose to use two things that require participation from mankind to accomplish. Grain crushed to bread and grapes crushed to wine. Astonishing and humbling. How much are we loved?! Elbow grease is a purifying process. Work has dignity.

      Replace facebook with GAB. Replace youtube with RUMBLE. Replace twitter with GETTR. No more amazon or paypal purchases, no more google searches. Use alternates to stop putting money into the pockets of egomaniacal misfits. Just saying…

    Good morning Father Pagano. I’m a huge fan of the podcast. I’ve listened to every episode at least twice. I heard on one episode about Our Lady of La Leche and I understand you have a special connection and devotion to her. I at this time cannot travel to her shrine in Florida. I was wondering if you could offer prayers for me to Our Lady of La Leche. It’s been a year since me and my wife have lost our child before it was born. We are currently trying again and with no success since March/April. I’ve been saying a novena to Our Lady of La Leche after I found it on an Instagram story. If you have the time because I understand your a busy father and have your own parish to look after. I’m just looking for all the help I can get. I plan on writing a letter to Pope Francis for his intersession as well. May God keep and bless you father.
