Happy Easter 2022!

He is risen! He is risen indeed! Sorry the podcast was up a little late today. The extended Easter break and some tech issues made it a bit trickier than usual. So thrilled to be in the octave of Easter and to talk about… Continue Reading “Happy Easter 2022!”

Lent: Love

Fr. Dave and I are excited about Holy Week! We discuss basketball (go Cavs!), baseball (go Nats!), and the triduum (go Jesus!). We also answer the question, “What’s love got to do, got to do with it?” Prepare to be amazed at my Tina… Continue Reading “Lent: Love”

Lent: Hope (and the rescue of Grogu)

Over the weekend, I broke into Castle Greyskull (aka the Holy Spirit Friary) and rescued Grogu who had been held captive there. In this episode you will hear Fr. Dave trying to make excuses, but notice how I break him down during interrogation. I… Continue Reading “Lent: Hope (and the rescue of Grogu)”

Lent: Temperance (Yoda Pants)

Fr. Dave is in Austria, I just got back from Arizona, and neither of us knew what time it was. We discussed basketball, the new Batman movie (spoilerish-free), how Mass is more than a communion service, and the virtue of temperance. We also had… Continue Reading “Lent: Temperance (Yoda Pants)”

Lent: Justice

Between Brady “un-retiring” and the baseball strike being over, it’s amazing Fr. Dave and I found time to talk about anything else! But we manage to discuss mission trips, liturgical seasons, and continue our Lenten reflection on the virtues, focusing on justice. And, if… Continue Reading “Lent: Justice”

Lent: Prudence

My turn! I lead the reflection about “prudence” at the end of this podcast. I had a cool “Holy Spirit” moment when I realized that prudence is the very virtue the world’s leaders need right now with the situation in the Ukraine. It is… Continue Reading “Lent: Prudence”

Lent: Fortitude

As you will see, I confronted Fr. Dave about some rumors I heard about this mistreatment of the stuffed Grogu in the Friary. Sadly, these rumors seem to be true! Then our conversation turned to a far more serious matter, the crisis in the… Continue Reading “Lent: Fortitude”

Countdown to Lent

This weekend I went to the NBA All-Star Game with my son, Bobby, and daughter, Elliana. It was SO MUCH FUN! This was a “bucket list” thing to do, and since All-Star games seem to only come to Cleveland every 25 years I figure… Continue Reading “Countdown to Lent”

A Whole New World

Coming back from vacation lets you see the world in a whole new light. Or, at least, that what happened with Fr. Dave. He began by noticing that I had a goatee, but refused to believe that I’ve had it for weeks. I had… Continue Reading “A Whole New World”

Tommy Boy

It is a good thing we didn’t have a podcast last week, because the emotion would have been too much. Of course, I’m talking about Tampa Tom Brady leaving the Buccaneers. I like to think of him as “Tampa Tom,” a free loving guy… Continue Reading “Tommy Boy”
