CHRISTMASCAzT 2017 30: He lets us experience trials for a while – CORRECTED

UPDATE: I link to the correct audio file now.  SORRY!

Here is CHRISTMASCAzT 30, for the Octave of Christmas, New Year’s Day.

This is the final podcast for Advent/Christmas.  Thanks for listening.

Today, Joseph Ratzinger helps us start the new year.  He get’s an assist from the great Card. Sarah.

Now, without delay, order some Mystic Monk Coffee and have a listen!  (Be sure to update your coffee ordering link!  It changed.)

These 5 minute offerings are a token of gratitude for my benefactors who donate and send items from my wishlist.  Thank you!

These podcasts are also available through my iTunes feed. 


Please share!

    Dear Father, would you care to re-check the CHRISTMASCAzT in this post? I seem to be hearing CHRISTMASCAzT 2017 #29 on the Family. Thank you very much by the way for these podcasts! They’ve been a great help for me.

    The necessity of virtue is also stressed in the crowning of thorns hour in Hours of the Passion:
    “I want to make everyone understand that only virtue is what constitutes man king of himself; and I teach to those who command, that virtue alone, united to upright knowledge, is worthy and capable of governing and ruling others, while all other dignities, without virtue, are dangerous and deplorable things.”

    I think this is the file for CHRISTMASCAzT 29. :) [CORRECTED!]

    I love these, btw. Thank you so much for making them! Prayers for you this year!

    Thank you, Father, for the Advent/Christmas podcasts! I listened to nearly every one. I enjoyed them and learned much from them.
    Would it be possible for you to include a transcript with them next year? The music is lovely but sometimes I have to wait for an opportune time to play a podcast. If there was a transcript, I could read it almost anytime. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your ministry in 2018!
