I’m a day late getting to your latest podcast, Father, but it was worth the wait! The topic of balancing our sorrows with our joys as all coming from the hands of God our Father is something so helpful, because it’s easily forgotten when we’re in the middle of suffering of any kind.
Also, balancing the contemplative vs. active portions of our lives seems to me to be closely related to the other balancing act of accepting the sorrows with the joys in our lives.
Thank you for this very-much needed lesson in trusting God’s Providence and in finding that deep center of peace in the middle of a noisy life. Keep the podcasts coming, Father! They are a blessing to us all.
I would also like to commend you on these podcasts. I have listened to most of them and each one has nourishment for the soul. I use to get daily homilies from a priest in St. Paul MN but his website has been unavailable for more than a year now. I am a Lutheran convert of 10 years and these podcasts help to fill in the spiritual void. Thanks again for enlightening us about the depth of our Catholic faith, and may God Bless you and your efforts to serve Him.
Father, what is the name of the Gregorian chant the woman is singing? It’s quite beautiful.
