Afternoon Morning Show
The Weekly Word
Great News! You get a bonus episode of the Afternoon Morning Show. . .sort of. Actually, it is just the second part of the lat episode. On this show we talk about Weight Watcher’s name change and the HuffPo article, “Everything You Know About Obesity is Wrong.” Megan Witschger joins Chris and Vinny in Studio.
In this episode, the Afternoon Morning Show crew talk about the Supreme Court hearings taking place, William Shatner's latest musical venture, and Lauren Daigle's massive album debut.
In this Sunday's Gospel Jesus is approached by a wealthy young man. The young man begins by asking Jesus a question that a lot of modern-day Christians are asking as well, “What must I do?” Do you see the problem? The position he is taking with the Lord is “how do I earn this inheritance? What can I do? Me, me, me.” That is not how this works.
In this week's Weekly Word we unpack Mark 10:17-30.
In the book of Revelation, it is revealed that Christ is the groom, and the Church is his bride. When we see this, it completely changes the way we look at marriage. His example shows us that marriage is more than what you are getting out of the relationship and it is about more than “feeling alive.”
as a modern Christian, I think we have become a little desensitized to the majesty of our Lord. We are familiar with Jesus, sure. If you ask most Catholics, they would tell you they know all about him. But really, the Jesus that most of us conceive of, well, he isn’t actually Jesus. Not the one who we read about in scripture. The popular conception of Jesus lacks the vitality and power of the real person. If we are honest, he is kind of wimpy.
That is why reading the Gospels is so essential. Jesus, the real Jesus, is not wimpy.
Jesus knew the importance of speaking to large crowds. He knew the importance of miracles and prophecy. But, he also invested in relationships with an intimate group of followers. Maybe its time we added that to our Everyday Catholic lives as well.
