Palm Sunday- Episode 90

Palm Sunday- Episode 90

Palm Sunday is an important day in the liturgical year, but what is it?

Mom and Dad explain the historical context for Palm Sunday; they explain why the Pharisees and the high priests of Jerusalem got mad at Jesus.

They tell us why the people would go from laying palm branches before Jesus to screaming “Crucify him! Crucify him!” over the course of a mere 5 days.

And they share how we can all better prepare for Easter by making this a truly Holy Week.

The Woman Caught in Adultery- Episode 89

The Woman Caught in Adultery- Episode 89

Jesus tells parables, stumping the great thinkers of Judea, but wait!

They finally have a real-life chance to stump Him by bringing forth the woman caught in adultery.

His answer is profound, just, merciful, and totally his style.

Jesus’ answer to stoning the woman is something that we all need to think about, the answer written in the sand is profound, and an answer that follows the Golden Rule.

The Prodigal Son- Episode 88

The Prodigal Son- Episode 88

The Parable of the Prodigal Son is perhaps the most famous of Jesus’ teachings, and Mama and Daddy take a different look at it this time.

What is the meaning of this Parable? What can we learn from it? And what is the sin of the older brother?

As Mom says, we commit this sin of ingratitude and pride.

We, as baptized Christians, are the older brother in this lesson.

How should we respond to the Prodigal Son’s Homecoming?

The Burning Bush- Episode 87

The Burning Bush- Episode 87

God appearing to Moses in the Burning Bush is a wonderful example of him calling us.

In this episode, Mama and Daddy explore this, with a lot of soul-searching.

Moses, who is one of the most detailed figures in the Bible, is being called by a burning bush to lead God’s people out of slavery and into the Promised Land of milk and honey.

This is all sorts of weird!

If we were approached by God while He was in the form of a Burning Bush, what would we do?

Well guess what? God is not just calling Moses.

Who are we to lead others out of slavery to sin – or even ourselves?

The Transfiguration  – Episode 86

The Transfiguration – Episode 86

The Transfiguration of Jesus is a fascinating event that sometimes gets lost in Peter’s response to it.

But what a wonderfully perfect response!

What does this event reveal to us, and about us?

And why was it kept secret from all of the other Apostles?

In this episode discussing the Gospel reading in this coming Sunday’s Mass, we explore things we do not typically hear in a homily, but experience regularly.

But should we share those experiences? That’s not entirely up to us…

Jesus In The Desert  – Episode 85

Jesus In The Desert – Episode 85

Jesus In The Desert is what we talk about as we charge into Lent.

It happens to be the topic of the Gospel Reading this weekend coming up, too.

What does Jesus’ 40 days in the desert mean to us, to you?

It’s a great question and a different answer for everybody – but a singular theme each of us can relate to.

Welcome to Lent!
