2nd Sunday of Easter, 2021

Meant to get this recorded and uploaded yesterday, but just ran out of energy. It may not be exactly what I gave in person, but it’s pretty close, I think. Enjoy. (Incidentally, I’m not on the livestreamed Mass for the rest of the month, so are you’re gonna get for a bit.)

March 7, 2021: Third Sunday of Lent

I know I’ve not posted much recently; I’ve been having some technical issues. You may have noticed on the last couple videos that I made that the volume is really low. I’ve no idea why that is happening, and therefore, I’ve no idea how to fix it. I’ve been doing some research on the issue, and hopefully I’ve found a fix. I’ll try it this week, and we’ll see how it goes. We’re also halfway through Lent, and that means that my schedule is about to dramatically ramp up, so even if I fix this microphone problem, I may not have time to produce content anyway. If it’s not one thing, it’s another…

…anyway, here’s today’s Mass. It’s the 3rd Sunday of Lent, and today we also celebrated Scout Sunday. I tried to combine both things in the homily, and I think it was a disaster, but you can draw your own conclusions.

Stations of the Cross

Praying the Stations of the Cross has always been one of my favorite devotionals. I can’t quite put my finger on why that is; but it seems liek it’s always been the case. Leading them with a congregation has made them even more meaningful, but (once again) this lousy pandemic has tried to ruin that, too. On the other hand, praying them alone in the church last year, while feeling like you’re surrounded and under assault by some insidious, invisible enemy, was a source of great consolation.

The situation has improved a little bit last year, and we’re able to go back to having Stations in the churches and with other people. That doesn’t mean everyone can, however. So if you’re looking for a way to pray the Stations at home, here’s this video. I made this one all the way at the beginning of the pandemic and knew even less about video editing than I do now (which still isn’t much), so if you find it low-quality, forgive me. My hope is at least you find it spiritually efficacious.
