Today as we celebrate the great feast of the conversion of Saint Paul, we take a look at the Parable of the Sower and the Seed, that enigmatic story of Jesus that promised an abundant life to those who hear it and are able to apply its wisdom in their daily lives. So, what are you waiting for? Find out how to be rich soil that bears fruit--30, 60, or 100-fold!
What do you do when you pray and pray and it just seems that God is not listening or is not sending you the solution that you so ardently desire?
Let's take a look at this universal experience of (seemingly) unanswered prayer from a few different perspectives, always relying on sacred scripture, the inspired Word of God, and the historical events of salvation history recorded in the Bible and interpreted via the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
What do you do when you pray and it seems that your prayers are not being answered? This is the topic of our episode today.
In this episode, we explore the mystery of the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River by John, and we do this with an eye to understanding what it all means for us in the modern world today.
Here are some of the texts referenced in this episode:
Matthew 14, Mark 6, Luke 9, John 6 (miracle of loaves & fishes)
Mark 15:39 (Centurion's profession of faith)
Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) 1225
In this episode, we ring in the New Year with reflections on seemingly disparate topics, bringing it all together in a way that compels us to resolve to make better decisions in 2024 and gives us the clarity of a litmus test for making decisions.

In this episode, EvangeliNation returns to the airwaves in 2023 with a look at the theology of Blessed James Alberione, holy priest and founder of the Pauline Family of religious and secular institutes of consecrated life.
Alberione's theological thought forms the foundation of the whole life of a Pauline, and indeed, I would say of every Christian. Join me today as we begin to drink in the deep reflections of this insightful man's intellectual, spiritual, and moral life through a reading of his collection of notes called Abundantes divitiae gratiae suae, "the abundant riches of His grace."

This is the first ever "double episode" produced in honor of the Easter Triduum. Come away on a fisherman's boat into the waters of sunny reflections. At the time of this recording, Holy Week has begun for Christians all over the world. So, today, we are talking about the 12 Apostles that gathered around Jesus for His Last Supper, the Passover ("Seder") meal that He shared with His Apostles before He laid down His life for His friends . . . and for all of us in a mystical reality that is no less pertinent and profound today than it was back then. Isn't that an extraordinary thing to say? The meal He shared with His friends was like everything else He did: it had long-lasting phenomenal consequences for the whole world. Who can comprehend the mystery and beauty of even one moment like that shared with the God-Man, Jesus Christ? If we could get even just a little taste of it, I think it would change who we are today forever. I guess that is the aim of this episode. Enjoy.
May you have a holy and blessed Pesach / Pascha / Pascua / Easter Triduum.
