Encounter Mercy
Love can be difficult, especially when we don’t want to love. Yet we are called to love and not hate; we are called to peace and not war. Yet we find ourselves in a state of war for love and peace. Let us trust in Christ who calls us to love everyone, no matter what, from womb to tomb, throughout all stages of life to the end of time and beyond. Listen to Father Andy and Vince as they discuss this spiritual warfare in the most recent episode of the Encounter Mercy Podcast. ...

  • Spiritual Warfare

    Spiritual Warfare

    As the Jewish people waited for their Messiah, they were expecting a great military leader to descend from the heavens and lead them into war against the occupying forces: the Romans and their empire. What they didn’t expect was a child king to appear to them, yet that is exactly what the prophets had proclaimed for generations before.

    The prophets also proclaimed that we would enter into warfare, but not the type of warfare that people expected. Rather, Jesus the Christ came to us, leading us in a spiritual warfare. We know how this war ends: the Christ wins; peace will be upon us all; we shall enter into the Heavenly Kingdom. That does not mean that we sit back and watch, rather we must enter into battle. We are not fighting a physical war, but rather one that requires special attention: prayer. Our world is in chaos, and we must respond in LOVE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, PRAYER.

    Join Father Andy and Vince as they discuss the importance of prayer in this time of our lives.

    Merry Christmas Mr. Potter!

    “Look Daddy! Teacher says every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings!” In the classic Christmas movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” there are many Christian themes hidden, and sometimes blatantly staring at the viewer. For instance, one very obvious theme is that life is sacred and worthy of protection.

    Join Father Andy and Brother Barnabas as they, with the help of AJ, try to convince Vince of these Christian themes, and enjoy this wonderful Christmas classic!

  • The Actions of Men

    The Actions of Men

    We often hear questions like “if the Catholic Church is the one true church, then how is there corruption in it?” or hear statements like “I love the Church and Her liturgies, but I cannot support a church that permits horrible things from happening.” Both of these statements/questions are feelings that people have, but how can one support an institution that is not perfect?

    Join Father Andy and Vince as they discuss these thoughts.
