The Power of a Teacher

The Ascension of the Lord | | By Stephen Parish

People in positions of authority inevitably empower those under their influence. Those in positions of power that seek personal gain or forgo devotion, justice, and compassion undermine the love of God and the love of neighbor.

The Hollywood Writer's Story | feat. Dorothy Fortenberry

Season 1, Episode 30 | 5/21/2020

Have you ever gone to help someone and thought to yourself, "oh yeah, this is one hell of a good deed?" And then have you ever fallen flat on your face when you went to do it?

During the early years of the LGBT+ liberation movement, queer people forged political solidarities by sharing their experiences of sexual repression and alienation from the dominant heteronormative society.

Holding On To Tradition

Sixth Sunday of Easter | | By Gabe Reeder-Ferreira

God has given us life for the Spirit to live in us, to experience love and be able to step into the chaos of another with compassion. Made by God we are a conduit of peace, even if we ourselves are not at peace.

We are here because He called us and He chose us. The fact that we may have struggled to remain faithful and close to Jesus, yet do our best to follow Him, is invaluable and does good to the Church, which many times is not even capable of seeing us.

It is better to follow Jesus imperfectly than not to follow Him at all.

The Story of the Hetero Ally | feat. Adam Gautille

Season 1, Episode 28 | 5/7/2020

A fight in the parking lot, a 6'5" drag queen, a new translation of the Mass parts, and Evanescence. How did we fit all that into one episode? Adam Gautille, that's how.
