  • EP-051: Stopping the Heart Ache in Romance, St. Valentine's day Massacre (February 8, 2019)

    11 FEB 2019 · Millions of Americans will be celebrating St. Valentine's day this year with candy, flowers, romantic dinners, cards, etc. But does this really help us find true love and deepen our relationships? Those who are married, engaged, or even dating understand that they were at first attracted by something that made them get more intimate with the other person. Maybe it was their looks, or conversation, or some suffering that made the relationship more intimate than "just friends". We often hear of "soulmates" or "love at first sight". All of these are words of intimacy, which are very beautiful. But you cannot base a loving relationship on intimacy alone, as this only leads to a broken heart. True love and relationships are based on both intimacy and commitment, which can bring about even greater intimacy in a time of struggle. 08-Feb-2019

  • EP-050: Set yourself free, how a kleptomaniac set me free (February 1, 2019)

    4 FEB 2019 · Have you ever been all chained up, either emotionally or intellectually or feel Paralyzed or limited. As Catholics we tend to bottle ourselves up and see the world as a "don’t do this" or "what not do" as opposed, to wow we can do so much, there is so much we can do. God only gave us 10 Commandments of "do nots" and yet most Catholics think the world revolves around millions and million of "do nots". In this episode you will find out that most of our chains are centered in our soul and not physical. That Santan wants us to focus on the "do not's" to paralyze us. But, so many great saints, such as St. Maximilian Kolbe who was imprisoned and beaten in Auschwitz were physically imprisoned, but the soul was free and grew to great heights. We will learn what makes us chained up and how to break those chains to bring peace, love, and joy into our lives and really grow spiritually to succeed here, while growing as a child of God. 01-Feb-2019

  • EP-049: Identifying and using our talents in the secular world to evangelize and impact the world with Andrea Lynn Cianflone (Jan 25, 2019)

    25 GEN 2019 · Today's episode is about our talents that God has given us. How we can discover them, and how we can use them, in the service of God, even in a hostile environment. We sometimes have this idea that we can only evangelize if we are doing apologetics or preaching about our faith, but our talents whatever they are - music, acting, business, entrepreneurship or leading/managing - can be used to evangelize. I have a guest speaker, Andrea Lynn Cianflone, who has successfully used her musical talents to be a success, even playing at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. She has started a program to combat depression by bringing joy to people's lives through singing. Her program is called "Be Delighted," and you can get more information on it by going to bedelightedtoday.com AND For those who are lucky to be near Shakopee, Minnesota, on February 1st, 2019, you are welcome to attend her concert at Saints Joachim and Anne Church in Shakopee, Minnesota.

  • EP-048: A 4-step process to spiritually handle a crisis with love and grace (January 18, 2019)

    19 GEN 2019 · Have you ever been in a crisis situation and just seemed to get paralyzed by fear or became extremely angry and started lashing out at others rather than trying to help others? We have all seen it. The parent who is yelling at his teenage son for getting into a car accident rather than helping the teenager resolve the accident. Or maybe it is the charity organizer who is so overwhelmed with crises that he/she lashes out at others. We almost become bi-polar in these situations. Today's episode is about handling a crisis situation, whether at home, work or church, with grace and love. We will be analyzing a real situation and show where virtue, the intellect, will and passions interact to either exasperate the crisis situation by "allowing our emotions to carry us away" or enable a grace-filled handling of the situation with love. 18-Jan-2019

  • EP-047: Who am I??? How to cure your identity crises (January 11, 2019)

    10 GEN 2019 · Today's episode is about helping to cure your identity crises. I think so many people have identity crises that they really do not know who they are. They are either chasing after something, like money or a career, or they want to be something else other than themselves. They might even be running away from something, such as the past or other people. The cure to identity crises is reflecting on life, so you can really discover who you are and know what God's plan is for you. In our high speed, technological world, and our self-absorbed and busy society, we need to take time to reflect and discover ourselves, what God created us for and be the champions for Christ that He is calling us to be, regardless of our faults, weaknesses, strengths, or talents. I have a guest speaker today, Robert Hanley, who will help us with our identity crises. Robert Hanley is a famous celebrity who has been in Hollywood movies and is a singer, author, stand up comedian, game host, and actor in many TV shows. Over all, he is a great guy who loves Christ and others. (January 11, 2019)

  • EP-046: Are you chasing after the star that will make you great!! (January 4, 2019)

    7 GEN 2019 · Our destiny for greatness and putting meaning into our lives. If I asked you right now what is your greatest attribute or accomplishments, what would it be? Would it be your talent as a musician or actor, your beauty or your intelligence, your career, what is that great attribute or accomplishment of yours? The American Dream says "we can do and be anything and be success with hard work". The problem with all of these attributes and accomplishments is that they are fleeting and unimpressive. But what if you were told that there is a single attribute that would divinize you (literally make you a god) and make you a prince or princess of the kingdom of the Universe? What would you say? This one attribute is what we have, and it was given to us when we were baptized. That one attribute is being a child of God. For many, we chase after a star that will eventually die, but the one star that we need to find is the star that leads to a child in a stable in order to help us really see our greatness.

  • EP-045: How Cinderella killed marriage and how to build a better relationship (December 28, 2018)

    29 DIC 2018 · What makes a really great relationship and how to build one in a family. How many of us really know how to build a beautiful relationship or even identify what a truly beautiful relationship is? I think we have this idea that once we get married, we will instantly have a great marriage and family. I call it the fairy tale syndrome. "And they lived happily ever after….". And then as soon as they don't live "Happily ever after…" and troubles come along and Prince charming is no longer charming and Snow White is no longer nice and beautiful, we look for TV shows or movies to show us how to fix it. And here in America the popular fix for a broken marriage and family is divorce and remarriage and always blaming the other for the breakup. Now, a new trend is to not even get married and have children. So, what can we use to measure and strive our relationships on? All businesses have metrics to see if we are performing well, but you cannot have metrics unless we can measure it and set a goal. So, what is the measure or goal or example in relationships. It is the Holy Family. (December 28, 2018)
