⁣Make Lent of 2024 edifying with daily meditations for Lent from the famous French orator, Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet.

After many years away from the sacrament, my mother's confession brought an unexpected joy to this Holy Saturday, and it's with that spirit of renewal that I invite you to join me in today's reflection. As we stand on the threshold of Easter, the penultimate meditations from Bishop Jacques Bossuet's "Meditations for Lent" challenge us to examine the ephemeral nature of our existence and the significance of our lives within the vast expanse of time. We ponder the genuinely lived moments versus those lost to the mundanities of daily life and consider the relative weight of our temporal achievements against an eternal backdrop. This introspection is not just a solitary journey; I ask for your prayers for my mother and all those rediscovering their faith during this sacred time.

As dusk settles, our hearts and minds turn to the Easter Vigil, the pinnacle of our Lenten journey, where the scriptural sagas unfurl the redemptive arc of our salvation history and Christ's enduring presence within it. We draw profound parallels between Moses, the liberator of the Israelites, and Jesus Christ, the ultimate sacrifice of the Paschal Lamb, exploring the deep-rooted connections that prefigure the Savior's coming. This episode is an invitation to embrace spiritual readiness and to eagerly anticipate the sacred feast that awaits us. As we prepare to conclude our Lenten fast and look forward to the final reflection on Easter Sunday, I share my heartfelt gratitude for your companionship throughout these meditations and wish you a blessed Holy Saturday and a joyous entry into Easter.

⁣Make Lent of 2024 edifying with daily meditations for Lent from the famous French orator, Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet.

As we traverse the solemnity of Holy Tuesday, we encounter the piercing reflections of Bishop Jacques Bossuet, guiding us through the shadows of betrayal and sin that pierce the heart of Jesus. This session is a profound meditation on the emotional turmoil Christ endured, particularly in the face of Judas Iscariot's impending betrayal. Bishop Bossuet elucidates the deeper layers of Jesus' suffering, inviting us to consider the collective weight of human sins that pressed upon the Savior and the paradox of the Cross as both a symbol of salvation and a stumbling block.

With the Gospel of John as our map, we journey into the very soul of Christ, observing his troubled spirit in the face of sin—both personal and communal. Bishop Bossuet's insight into the scriptural moments where Jesus is most distressed offers a stark reflection on sorrow for sin. As Easter approaches, this episode serves as a significant spiritual exercise, allowing us to confront the nature of sin and redemption. Through these meditations, we are challenged to recognize our role in the collective failure of humanity and yet find hope in the redemption that Jesus' ultimate sacrifice offers.

⁣Make Lent of 2024 edifying with daily meditations for Lent from the famous French orator, Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet.

Why do hearts resist the divine, even when miracles unfold before their eyes? This Palm Sunday eve, we grapple with the paradox of belief and skepticism, inspired by Bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet's "Meditations for Lent." In a rare unedited live session, nestled amidst the aromatic blend of morning cigars and coffee, my linguistic stumbles seem to echo humanity's own faltering steps towards faith. We examine the stirring gospel accounts, including the resurrection of Lazarus, and the challenges Jesus faced with the hardened hearts of the Pharisees—a testament to the complex interplay between witnessing the miraculous and the decision to believe.

As our Lenten journey nears its crescendo, we confront the unsettling question: if Jesus's miracles were so evident, why didn't the whole world believe? This episode isn't just another scripture reading; it's an intimate exploration of the human heart's profound attachment that often blinds us to the divine. Join me, without edits or filters, in a contemplation that might just reveal the thoughts of many hearts, including our own. From unexpected family interruptions to an immersion in biblical wisdom, this is a live session that promises a connection to the spiritual struggles and triumphs that have echoed through the ages.

⁣I recently purchased some MRE Humanitarian Rations as the start to a little emergency food stash. I decided upon these because of the war in Gaza. I saw a Palestinian eat and review one of these after the US air-dropped them to Palestinians. He hated it. He said the only thing he could choke down was the peanut butter. I wanted to know if it was really that bad.

Initially, the plan was to eat and review these with my three and 5-year-olds. We opened, ate, and reviewed one earlier today, but the sound didn't record! So, I opened a new one and re-recorded it, but my boys did not want to be as involved.

Let me know if you want to see us try to review any other MREs/rations in the comments. If you have any special requests, let us know!

⁣The Traditional Thomist joins us while we give an honest review of the final part of the Mass of the Ages trilogy.

This episode promises a rich tapestry of Catholic life, blending humor with the solemnity of spiritual practice. We navigate through the tumultuous seas of the Trad Recovery Conference, offering apologies and explanations for our satirical take that ruffled some feathers. We then embark on an engaging critique of Mass of the Ages Ep 3: Guardians of Tradition, pondering its impact on youth and the Latin Mass movement.

We debate the potential of age-old practices to captivate young men looking for a deeper spiritual challenge, and we tease the idea of a round table discussion among Catholics of various persuasions. It's an exploration of how Catholic media and differing opinions can coexist, culminating in a reflection on navigating disagreements within the Church. Whether you're a Trad or not, join us for an episode that promises to uplift, challenge, and inspire.
