Hardly a perfect rendition, but I must admit that the new version from the Roman Missal is a lot tougher.

Today's podcast is actually a recording of a practice run for a talk I gave at the Kearney Chapter of the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women. I haven't quite got the nerve to try a live recording yet. I have the equipment, just not the guts! The talk is on the silent prayers of the Mass.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

OK, here's the set-up. Last Tuesday night we spent some time talking about those occasions when we may find ourselves absolutely void of ideas, or in a time pinch. We admitted to drawing (sometimes pretty heavily) from internet or canned homilies. Fr. Richard made a point that we need to use it as an outline, get the general sense and then make it our own.

I was slated to preach this weekend, then I realized that it was the First Scrutiny. We have one person entering the Church from parish A, one from C and none from B. Of course, I have no idea which Mass these people will be at, though it is unlikely that they will be at parish B.

Fr. Jose went to Omaha for a check-up on Thursday and they decided to keep him a few days to run some tests. (Please pray for him as of today they still don't know the severity of the problem they discovered)

Long story short one substitute priest for A, one substitute priest for B and SCAP for C.

Are you still with me? OK..... so I decided to preach one homily for all three parishes and wanted to carry the theme of the scrutinies into the regular readings.

This is where I ran across an excellent source here: http://www.theemmausseries.com/index.html (that I wanted to share with everyone) with a particularly promising exegesis/homily for this week here: http://www.theemmausseries.com/blent03.html The result is attached.

Talk about a dose of real-world experience that directly relates to our most recent topic. Please let me know what you think. ... - Bill
