Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 4)

Perhaps my favorite moment in this episode was the look of horror on Fr. Dave’s face when I told him that I have seen more Weird Al concerts than any other artist. When we were prepping for this episode (the three minutes before we… Continue Reading “Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 4)”

Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 3)

Ah, a morning episode. It was nice to get together with Fr. Dave in the George on campus, and not after a long day! We ended up talking about weddings (I’d say we wen’t “off script” but that would assume we had one). He… Continue Reading “Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 3)”

Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 2)

Here is a first: recording a podcast during a Tampa Bay Buccaneers game! Well, we weren’t at a Bucs game. It was on TV. I was doing a Steubenville Parish Mission in Brewster, NY while Fr. Dave was sitting comfortably in the Holy Spirit… Continue Reading “Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 2)”

Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 1)

Yes, this was a late night podcast, but no… we weren’t drinking. Though I can’t explain why Fr. Dave introduced himself as “Fr. Bob.” We had a lot of fun with this episode. We realized that we hadn’t talked about movies in a while,… Continue Reading “Why Did the Word Become Flesh? (Part 1)”

The Difference

I’d like to begin by apologizing for not combing my hair. It is the kind of thing I only realized after I had edited the video and saw it full screen. I’m essentially trying to pre-empt my mother from making this comment. She will… Continue Reading “The Difference”

Bury Me in Birkenstocks

I’m excited to share that I baptized my first baby! And I got to do my good friends, John Paul and Sarah Von Arx. Miriam Jane was born a few weeks ago pre-maturely, and there seemed to be some potential heart complications, so I… Continue Reading “Bury Me in Birkenstocks”

Air Quotes

The fun news is that I’ve been in the studio the past few days recording a new album (more to come on that). The bad news? Someone emailed me last night about the podcast video AND I HAD TOTALLY FORGOTTEN IT! Sorry! Here it… Continue Reading “Air Quotes”

Philippians SUPERCUT

I’m on retreat this week, so no new episode. However, I did piece together all of the conversations Fr. Dave and I have had over the past couple months about St. Paul’s Letter to the Philippians and put it together in a “supercut” for… Continue Reading “Philippians SUPERCUT”

Philippians 4:10-23

Fr. Dave and Dcn. Bob talk about the World Series, the NBA (go Cavs!), Halloween, and the mid-term elections. They conclude their study of Philippians by reflecting on what it means to do all things “through him who gives me strength” (Phil. 4:13).

Father President

We did a late Monday night recording—always a dangerous thing! I’ve been a bit out of it for the past week as we finished up summer conferences, but Fr. Dave filled me in on the exciting (yawn) contract negotiations with Juan Soto of the… Continue Reading “Father President”
