Steve’s Talks & Real Audio

These ladies have a nice blog. They like coffee and chocolate and sharing the Faith–Beauty in Belief– living in the Catholic Church and interviewing crazy guys like me. 

I enjoyed talking with Heidi and I am flattered by the interview on their website. Hope you enjoy it too. Click on the image to visit their blog and read the interview.

Today is the Feast of the Visitation. At the Visitation Mary traveled about 100 mile to visit her relative Elizabeth – pregnant!

Very few Catholics (and almost no Protestants) understand the Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant with the Word of God inscribed in flesh in her womb. (see Chart below.)

Here is my article on Mary, Ark of the New Covenant.

Sean Herriott and I are doing a series of shows on Family Matters (which has two meanings if you didn’t notice :-)

We’ve done Raising Daughters, Raising Sons, Loving Your Spouse — and this month we did Priorities in the Family.

You can listen to it here http://relevantradio.streamguys.us/MA%20Archive/MA20140506c.mp3 

Doing radio shows on the fly in Israel

Questions and Comments we addressed: 

Jesus is always first. Even if it brings divisions in families, and countries.

 Priorities are always a matter of juggling. We need to keep family, God, church, work, relaxation, food and sleep all in perspective because all are important. 

Life is like artwork we are always viewing our life and family as a masterpiece to be shown Sunday in heaven.

The one career choice my father made that caused me to be the man I am today.

 Holy family practiced spirituality is a demonstration for us. Even though God in the flesh Jesus lived a mundane and tedious life to show that being truly human is spiritual under the Lordship of Christ.

 What is more spiritual, praying the Rosary or changing diapers?

 Don’t let the parish eat you alive. 

The father should set the tone for the family and keep the balance between all the priorities. He thereby keeps the family running smooth and teaches the kids how to prioritize.

Nothing is more important than the love between husband and a mother and a father.

 People always ask me, “What are you Steve? “” And I answer I am first a Catholic and a husband and a father.

 When I gave my life to Christ the verse that became my beacon was Matthew 6:33 “sick first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”

 The family is a holiness factory

 The final test of how well we’ve done with our priorities is on our deathbed. What will we rejoice in? What will we regret? What will we wish we had done less and what we had done more.
