“Road from Emmaus” Ep033 – What Grace Looks Like

As Catholics, we often hear of "grace-filled moments" or that "by God's grace", we were able to do something. The word "grace" is used so often that we sometimes don't realize what it actually means in practice. On this episode, Andrew and Jason try to unpack and illustrate what "grace" really looks like. They share some examples that they hope you can relate to and try to make a sometimes-vague concept, well, slightly less vague. Happy new year, and may it be filled with grace!

“Road from Emmaus” Ep032 – Pet Peeves and Pro Tips

Andrew and Jason end off the year with a bit of a fun episode as they go through their list of pet peeves and pro tips relating to behaviours that we all have in Mass, as well as a couple other general ones. As much as this is a fun episode though, the most important part is at the end, so make sure you stay tuned until then. Merry Christmas, happy new year, stay safe, and be well!

“Road from Emmaus” Ep031 – The Latin Mass with Eric Wong

If you're a practicing Catholic, you've probably been attending Mass in what's called the Ordinary Form for most of your life. On today's episode, Andrew and Jason talk about the traditional Latin Mass with special guest Eric Wong. They break down the major differences between the Ordinary Form and the Latin Mass, and talk about why the Latin Mass as a form of worship is so beautiful. They also discuss some news relating to the Latin Mass from back in July, when Pope Francis released a rule change regarding the ability to celebrate Mass in the Old Rite. It's a packed episode, but hope you enjoy it and find it fruitful!

“Road from Emmaus” Ep030 – Changes In Prayer Life

On today's episode, Andrew shares about where he's currently at with his prayer life. He's married now, and that vocation for him and Cherry has come with different commitments. Over the last few months, he's been working to adjust to this slightly different lifestyle while still keeping up his prayer habits and relationship with Christ. Together with Jason, they talk about how it's okay to have changes in your prayer life, and how to find new ways to be present to Jesus in every moment.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep029 – Bearing the Cross of Infertility

Today, Andrew and Jason tackle the topic of infertility. It's not something we often think of; we grow up planning to get married, to start a family, and to have children,but sometimes, for whatever reason, that last part doesn't happen. It's a difficult cross to bear, and their hearts go out to anyone who does have to bear it. They talk about different approaches that might help, and they also touch on in vitro fertilization and why the Church is against it.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep028 – True Presence

Andrew and Jason are back with another episode on the Eucharist! They talk about how Jesus is present in the Eucharist, and how the bread and wine is truly His body and blood. They go through something called Lewis's Trilemma as well as some instances of Eucharistic miracles. Then they go into the discussion of receiving the Eucharist on our tongue instead of on our hands, and why the traditional way is the way to go.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep027 – What Happened at Western, and the Responsibility of Being Made Man

About a month ago, news came out that there had been sexual assaults and gender-based violence at Western University, the alma mater of Jason and Andrew. It was terrible to hear about and difficult to digest, and in this episode, Andrew and Jason try to get to the heart of the issue--the responsibility of being made man, and the gifts that God has written into the very bodies of men that they must be careful and loving stewards of. Also: they don't get into the graphic details of the news, but sharing a warning just in case.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep026 – On Gender and Pronouns

It's been a growing trend over the last couple years that we've been seeing pronouns being put up next to people's names--at work, at school, wherever. As discussion around gender becomes more and more prevalent within society, we as Catholics need to learn how to approach those conversations. And it's okay if you don't know. It's okay to wonder how you should handle these situations, or how immoral you are or aren't being in your pursuit to love your neighbour. On today's episode, Andrew and Jason try to unpack these questions, and they offer their opinions on how they would approach these conversations.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep025 – Virtue Signalling, Humblebragging, Pride, and Humility

Virtue signalling and humblebragging: the grey area between pride and humility. When we spell it out like that, it might seem black and white. But in our journey towards practicing the virtue of humility, it can be the littlest thing that's said or done the wrong way that could maybe misconstrue our initial intent of being humble, and leave us in a position where the spotlight is left on ourselves instead of on Christ. Andrew and Jason dive into this today in what will probably be their most ironic episode ever, as we try to separate true and false humility.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep024 – Drafting Saints: Team Andrew vs Team Jason

It's the first time Andrew and Jason have done an episode in person in a while, so they're celebrating with a bit more of a fun one this time! THey draft their own teams of saints--saints they relate to, saints they rely on, or just saints that they like. They share what they know about the stories of these saints, as well as what sainthood is about in general. Hope you have fun with this one, and they recommend heading over to YouTube to watch along instead of listening, if you can!

“Road from Emmaus” Ep023 – I’m New to the Faith—What Do I Do?

Andrew and Cherry are officially married now, but the podcast doesn't stop! On today's episode, Andrew and Jason spend some time answering the question of what one should do if they're new to the Catholic faith. What should I do? What should my approach be? What resources can I look at? They answer all these questions and more; hope you have a good listen! -- Formed: https://formed.org/ > "Sign Up As A Parishioner" Bible in A Year Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/4Pppt42NPK2XzKwNIoW7BR?si=ee67747acff04428 Names mentioned: Chris Stefanick, Fr.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep022 – Andrew and Cherry Are Getting Married (but not with Cheryl and Gabby)

One more week. In just a few more days, Andrew and Cherry will be saying "yes" in front of God to spending the rest of their lives together. Is Andrew ready? They invited Gabby Song and Cheryl Chan, two longtime friends of theirs going back to their days at university together, to find out. They ask Andrew to share about his relationship with Cherry, what their discernment process has been like, and otherwise grill him just to make sure he knows what he's doing. They're joined by a special guest halfway through, so make sure you listen to the whole thing ;)

“Road from Emmaus” Ep021 – When Priests Aren’t Interesting

Sometimes when we go to Mass, we might come away underwhelmed by the homily. Or maybe we'll go to Confession and the counselling that we receive isn't exactly the greatest. What should we do when this happens? Is it wrong for us to feel this way? Sometimes, our faith becomes a little too priest-centric, and today, Andrew and Jason talk about what that looks like and how we can remind ourselves what things like Mass and Confession are really about. May we always find ourselves pointed towards Christ.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep020 – 215

215. That's the number of Indigenous children whose remains were found on May 29, 2021. They were found buried on the site of what used to be Kamloops Indian Residential School. Andrew and Jason take today's episode to lay out what happened, what the residential school system was and its traumatic effects on the Indigenous peoples, and how the Catholic Church was involved in this dark past. They share their thoughts and talk about how the lay Catholic should receive this news. Let's continue to keep our Indigenous brothers and sisters in our prayers. St. Kateri Tekakwitha, pray for us!

“Road from Emmaus” Ep019 – Children’s Formation (by two guys who don’t have children)

Andrew and Jason have gotten to the age where they're starting to think about the next stage of their lives--specifically, married life, family life, and bringing up children. In some ways, it's a funny conversation to have because neither of them are even married (yet), but it's also an important conversation. How can we do our best to be examples of holiness, so that our children can become saints? You can hear what they have to say on that on today's episode.

“Road from Emmaus” Ep018 – When Priests Get Reassigned

When priests get assigned to a new parish, go on study or personal leave, or retire, it can be jarring, for the parishioners and for the priest. On this episode, Andrew and Jason talk about what it must be like when priests have to leave their parish, and why it's important for us as laypeople to be able to let go. They touch on the virtue of obedience, too. Remember to keep your priests, deacons, and religious sisters in your prayers!
