    Do you guys ever lead pilgrimages (sp?) to Italy or the Holy Land?

    1. We’re considering it, but want to make sure there would be enough interest…

    Great episode! I taught a Bible Study class for 6th graders, so I had read about different translations (and different “transliterations”) for Bibles. I believe the word “Jehovah” is based upon Exodus 3:14. I was wondering whether it is a bad translation, a bad transliteration…or both? Anyone know…or care?

    Also word “bitter” brought to mind the passage in Ruth 1:20, “Do not call me Naomi [‘Sweet’]. Call me Mara [‘Bitter’], for the Almighty has made my life very bitter.”

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for another interesting show about the origins of names and God’s name and how it became Yahweh at the time of Moses. I believe that the ancient Israelites before Moses named God El Shaddai. In other words they chose the name of Almighty Lord, and God did not. Mary’s name is beautiful and my mother was named after her as many babies were in her generation. Not so much now.

    I saw two episodes and you are in your own studio. Did you mention it is in Houston? In that case is Fr. Pagano commuting from Florida to Texas weekly?

    I am so glad you have all your podcasts available as I only discovered you last week from a link from EWTN to Church Pop to you.

    Onomastics must be an interesting study. My name is not far removed from the masculine Andreas or Andrew.

    Great info! I would have loved to hear more about the reason we ended up using Mary instead of Miriam since both names exist in English to this day. I have heard something about Mary being from the Greek translation, but I’d love some clarification on the exact etymology. It seems similar to the use of Jesus instead of Joshua, I guess, but does anyone know the why behind it all?
