Explorers of Beauty: Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey

Children are naturally more perceptive to faith due to their innocence and humility. As parents accompany their children on their spiritual journey, not only do they draw closer to their children, they are also drawn closer to God. Federation of North-American Explorers (FNE) not only helps kids encounter Jesus, it also provides opportunities for parents to walk alongside their kids on their faith journey.

Ohana means Family. Family means …

Nobody gets left behind or forgotten. We can’t pick our families and neither can our families pick us, but we learn our most important life lessons within the context of our families: the way we approach work, the way we find meaning in our experiences, the way we look for love, even the way we see God. This episode, Lyndon shares some personal stories about the way his family has affected his life and faith. It will also be the last episode of the first season of The Holy Catholic Brew and when we resume with the second season, we will be featuring some guest interviews to chat about the way their vocations have shaped their faith. Thank you all for tuning in and see you soon! The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons, and the song in the middle was “Childhood Goodbye” by Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear; the transition music was by Podington Bear.

Fruit, Glorious Fruit!

It’s Eastertide (or Easter Season, Easter Time, whatever you prefer) already, and now we are entering the 50-day waiting period for the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. If you’re like me, Pentecost is just the time when the Holy Spirit lands on the Apostles as FIRE! Pretty cool, but what significance does it have to you and me when we don’t see awesome stuff like that happen to us? In this episode, Lyndon reflects on the theme of fruits in the Old and New Testaments, how that relates to the Mosaic Law, the ancient Jewish practice of offering first-fruits, and links it to Pentecost. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some fruits as you listen to this podcast … it’ll be a long one. The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons, the themed song today was “The Fruit of the Spirit”, by Uncle Charlie; the transition music was by Podington Bear and the music for the Scriptural readings was by Michael Levy.

Pass Over The Passion

Holy Week and Easter are already upon us … can you believe Lent is over already? In this episode, Lyndon explains (very excitedly) some stuff that he’s read about (accuracy is not guaranteed) the Old Testament and the often overlooked connections to Jesus, His Passion, and Resurrection. We’ve often heard of Jesus of Nazareth being a Jew, but how does the Jewish experience change the way we should view and worship “The King of the Jews”? If you have the focus to sit through this (admittedly rather dense) episode, you’ll hear about the Exodus from Egypt, the Passover meal, the Eucharist, and what Jesus rising from the dead means for us today.

The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons, and the song in the middle was “Ma Nishtana” by Micha Gamerman; the transition music was by Broken Elegance.

We talk about what the purpose of a retreat is, what kinds there are, and share some personal stories about how retreats have shaped our faith lives and the things that we’ve struggled with.

Because God Tells Me So, Part 2

In this episode, Lyndon and Jeremy chat about discernment again, but this time taking a more structured approach. We talk about what discernment is, how it’s different from just taking care of your responsibilities well from a secular point of view, how it’s nothing to be scared of, and that discernment needs to be done in the context of a relationship with God, and not done by trying to discover a secret list of rules from God.

The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons, and the song in the middle was “Dance with Who Brung Ya” by The Western Swing Authority; the transition music was by Jahzzar.

The Holy Catholic Brew

 
Because God Tells Me So, Part 1

In this episode, Lyndon and Jeremy chat about how doing the will of God is REALLY different from what secular society thinks, even what Chinese society thinks. Just being a nice person who works hard to get a good job and raise a good family isn’t enough - there are tons of people already like that outside the Church. We also talk about why God doesn’t just talk to us audibly (that would make things soooo much easier) and why He permitted the Catholic Faith to enter China so late - was He playing favourites?

The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons, and the song in the middle was “All My Days” by Alexi Murdoch; the transition music was by Broke For Free.

That “Earlier Incident”

In this episode, Lyndon talks about the recent suicide at the University of Toronto and reflects on what he sees as the dehumanizing bureaucracy with which our institutions deal with human lives and try to avoid bad publicity (although he might just be plain mistaken … who knows?). He also reflects on practical steps that we as Christians can personally take to revive a civilization of love.

Pray Your Troubles Away

In this episode, Lyndon and Jeremy talk about prayer. The thing that you do while kneeling and saying some memorized words to God? Is it? Well, listen to this episode and hear from a man studying for the Catholic priesthood himself to find out yourself. We’ll be talking about what it means to pray, our personal experience of prayer and some common misconceptions that people have about prayer.

For those of you with bad memory (no worries), here are the four tips that Jeremy gave on prayer:

  1. Personal prayer can look different from the way other people prayer … and that’s ok, but some public prayers (like the Mass) are non-negotiable
  2. Start praying with bits and pieces at a time
  3. Consistently showing up to pray is more important than the quality
  4. If you’re distracted in prayer, let that be your prayer to God

The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons; the song in the middle was “Oh Daddy” by Fleetwood Mac and the transition music was by Jahzzar.

The Church of Fakes and Clichés

In this episode, Lyndon talks about how he used to be repulsed by Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular because of the image that he had of faith from the surrounding culture. What happens when humans are made for meaning and purpose in life but don’t find it from their image of Christianity or from the consumerist culture? Does the Church have an adequate response to the messiness of life?

The song you heard in the intro and outro was “Roll Away Your Stone” and “Awake My Soul”, both by Mumford and Sons, and the song in the middle was “Leper Messiah” by Metallica.
