Happy 2023! It is great to be back. Yes, sadly, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost on Monday to the Dallas Cowboys. I had a few friars over (including Fr. Dave) to watch the… game? It felt more like a beat-down. But hey, at least… Continue Reading “2023!”

Philippians 4:1-9

Fr. Dave calls in from Austria, and so happy we didn’t have any technical glitches! Praise God! Of course, even if we did, we should “rejoice in the Lord always,” as Paul tells us in this episode’s focus on Philippians 4:1-9. It has been… Continue Reading “Philippians 4:1-9”

Our 100th Episode!

A day late, but hopefully worth the wait! We wanted to do something a little special to celebrate our 100th episode, so we recorded it live in front of students at Franciscan. The result was… a little chaotic 🙂 It didn’t help that Fr.… Continue Reading “Our 100th Episode!”

Philippians 3:12-21

Oh, the late night podcast recording! The most enjoyable thing about this episode is to see how loopy Fr. Dave gets by the end of it. We recorded this on Monday night, the eve of the Feast of St. Francis. I didn’t know that… Continue Reading “Philippians 3:12-21”

Philippians 3:2-11

I’m thrilled to have an episode for you this week! I’ll be honest, it almost didn’t happen. Fr. Dave and I recorded it yesterday, but we had some serious audio issues. Special thanks to Patrick who was able to pull the audio from my… Continue Reading “Philippians 3:2-11”

No Podcast For You (Sorry)

If you listened to last week’s episode, you know that Fr. Dave is leading a pilgrimage right now in Germany. Pray for him and those who are with him! We were once again victims of bad hotel wi-fi. We tried to record the podcast… Continue Reading “No Podcast For You (Sorry)”

Philippians 2:12-3:1

Are you ready for some football? Fr. Dave and Dcn. Bob discuss the kickoff weekend, cancel culture, the passing of Queen Elizabeth, and how to work for salvation in “fear and trembling.” (Sorry this was late this morning, crazy week!)

Philippians 1:12-30

The best thing about this episode, for me personally, was that Fr. Dave agreed to be in my fantasy football league. I WILL CRUSH HIM! A lot of this episode centered around Padre Pio and the interview Bishop Barron had with the actor who… Continue Reading “Philippians 1:12-30”

Philippians 1:1-11

Wow, Fr. Dave really does not like Banana Ball. If you aren’t sure about what that is, I would say it is like baseball, but actually fun. Anyway, you can hear us argue about it at the beginning of the podcast. I’m just so… Continue Reading “Philippians 1:1-11”

Summer Vacation

Hey all! Just to let you know that Fr. Dave and I are having a week with our families, so there is no new episode of They That Hope today. We will be back next week!
