Episode # 1359 - The Season Of Lent Continues

TGIF again everyone on this Friday, as Father Anthony says, a beautiful day on a cold day, sun shinning, with unfortunately the cold out.  Producer Nick joins in with his friend Kimmie visiting, as well as her 8 year old son Noah visiting, having the day off from school due to Abraham Lincoln's birthday today.  Father Anthony picks up the discussion from yesterday where he left off, talking about the Pope visiting Cuba and dealing with some very political issues.  It's also been a busy, full day (and it's not even over) for Father Anthony with lot's accomplished.  This leads to talking about where they left off yesterday, as well as the Holy Father too.  This brings to mind how people are today and how they face conflict and that we need the cross and Jesus with us, bringing to mind that Life itself is difficult and hard, but we pick ourselves up and face everything.  This leads to discussing crisis and calmness, good and evil, joy and bad.

Episode # 1358 - Lent 2016 Officially Started

Today, Lent has officially begun this year and Lent means Spring as Father Anthony points out at the beginning of the show.  This allows him to reflect on ideas/topics related to discussing this idea/topic regarding Lent, as well as Spring will be here in a couple of months too.  Since yesterday was Ash Wednesday too, Father Anthony talks about what Saint Stans and other Churches did in order to have people who wish to have the ashed applied to their head, as well as how conducted and those who did.  This also brings up what was talked about before slightly on other shows, about how society has "seduced" people to become things/people that they see in the media and if not become them, to model their behaviors, clothes, and manners based on them.  This leads to discussing Original Sin.  After the first break, Father Anthony brings to mind the readings from Ash Wednesday yesterday, and how influential they were and in turn, previous ideas/topics Father Anthony has discussed before on previous shows.

Episode # 1357 - Spiritual Deliema And Dualism

Due to scheudling conflicts, this is a rebroadcast from last Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016.  Thank you.

Father Thomas Koys is back today, that means it's Wednesday and he's ready to "wrinkle your brain" as he always says and the show is off to an interesting start, talking about the Terminator Movie Franchise and films, sharing many fond and fun memories of playing that or things like it, such as Cops And Robbers, Cowboys And Indians and many, many more as kids, including Producer Nick playing those kinds of games as kids with his brother and friends.  With history also in mind on this, the historical year provided or to think about is not one date this time as usual, but today is from 2000 BC to Today/the Present Era, which in turn relates to the Terminator films.  However, this also leads to talking about how many things have changed during these many, many millenniums.  After the first break, Father Koys shares a clip from the Terminator films that help with the topic of a Spiritual Dilemma that we may or may not face.  This raises a few philosophical ideas during the discussion, including, with the Terminator films in mind , time travel and history with the past, present and future in mind but especially with the character of the T-1000 in the films, who can morph due to him being composed of liquid metal, this helps in explaining how evil is able to take on many forms or morph into many different forms.  This raises the idea/fact/hope that good can do the same thing.

Episode # 1356 - Eve Of Lent 2016

It's Tuesday and things are still going good during this week, maybe due to the fact that it's the eve of Lent and/or with Mardi Gra going on too.  With Lent starting tomorrow, everyone is excited this year for Lent, with what everyone decides to "give up" during Lent.  Before that discussion on Lent, the discussion picks up where it left off yesterday and what Christina says about having an encounter with Christ, sharing the feelings we have when something like this happens or when an encounter with Christ happens.  With Lent going on, Father Anthony shares some memories of previous Lents as well as other memories regarding similar areas, particularly in feeling good, as one does or might feel after "giving up" something for Lent.  Father Anthony also shares some memories from visiting Africa, describing the people and the experience of being in another culture and in a way, another "world" in terms of the culture and people.  This leads to Father Anthony talking about Simon and Peter, with the idea of getting/giving Peace to us by the Lord, which expresses that everyone has a need for Christ, but the question is that does everyone want Him to help or the choice of wanting Christ.  With this, many questions are raised with the idea of wanting Christ and many we ask ourselves, with everyone on the show sharing their opinions on this particular topic.
