Today’s morning broadcast was very much a “Monday” sort of event. Thanks to those who tuned in and stuck with me! A reminder– the best audio is going to be on the YouTube feed. The Facebook feed is whatever my phone feels like doing that day.
In this Celestial Musings podcast, we pray the Divine Office Morning Prayer, and cover news, from the hilarious parody, to porn at the University of Notre Dame, and topped off with a touch of sports.
God bless you!
Here is the All Souls Day podcast, sadly very late, but better late than never. It does, however, have *drumroll*………..the podcast intro! We talk about the… Read more “VIDEO: 11.02.18 Morning Musings & Devotions – All Souls Day”
“Let us help and commemorate them. If Job’s sons were purified by their father’s sacrifice [Job 1:5], why would we doubt that our offerings for the dead bring them some consolation? Let us not hesitate to help those who have died and to offer our prayers for them” – John Chrysostom
Happy All Saints Day! This morning we prayed Divine Office Morning Prayer for All Saints Day, talked about why we celebrate the Feast of All Saints, using the second reading for today’s Office of Readings, and then touched on what veneration of the saints is, and isn’t. The video opens with a little music; it gives people a little time to join in before I begin the cast, and gives me a chance to wrap up a few things before starting. Podcast starts just before 4:00. Finally, stay tuned to see why Mr. Kermit, sacrificial spouse that he is, will be numbered among all the saints in glory.
Top box is the FB video, which has better audio. Second is the YouTube feed. I may start making YouTube the primary feed, which means that the better audio will be there, and not on Facebook. Just a heads up. I tried downloading the FB video and putting it into iMovie but it’s just not happening–half of the audio doesn’t transfer over and I have no time to figure that issue out! Sorry! So anyways, if you click on “watch on Facebook” (which I recommend–better feed) and it doesn’t work, you have the YouTube feed to watch.
Don’t let the preview picture scare you. The video is clear as a bell! Today we prayed Divine Office Morning Prayer and covered Mass readings with reflections on what its means to enter through the “narrow gate”. Enjoy!
God bless and keep you!
“Never let evil talk pass your lips; say only the good things men need to hear, things that will really help them. Do nothing that will sadden the Holy Spirit with who you were sealed against the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, all passion and anger, harsh words, slander, and malice of every kind. In place of these, be kind to one another, compassionate, and mutually forgiving, just as God has forgiven you in Christ.” ~St. Paul, Letter to the Ephesians, 4:29-32
Have you heard of the Abiding Together podcast? I hadn’t, and my sister recommended it to me! I’m listening to the first in a five-part series on women Doctors of the Church. There are a LOT of podcasts on the website, if you’re looking for something really edifying/uplifting to listen to. #score #grateful
