Sound Insight Presentation Edition: On today’s podcast, hear the fifth talk in an eight-part conference presentation: “Revitalizing Your Prayer Life” by Dr. Tom Curran.
Dr. Tom Curran asks “What’s going on?” as he shares challenging and encouraging stories about what has (and hasn’t) changed in Boston over the past 35 years. Tom reads insights from the biography on John Adams by David McCullough, on the many sacrifices of the Founding Fathers for the sake of future generations.
Dr. Tom Curran is joined by Fr. Jim Johnson, Fr. Kurt Nagel and Fr. Jim Northrop for a special Book Club Edition of Sound Insight to discuss God Is Near Us: The Eucharist, the Heart of Life by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger. (Ignatius Press)
What is the word you need to hear from God today? Dr. Tom Curran explores three methods of relating to Scripture: as study, as life-application, and as an encounter with the Author. Tom shares stories related to hearing God’s word, reads a quote from Hans Urs von Balthasar and reflects on today’s Gospel (Matthew 7.)
Dr. Tom Curran starts out the new liturgical year and season of Advent with ten confessions. Tom reflects on insights from The Spirit of the Liturgy by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger and shares stories about a family meeting, letters from his children, Kris Kringle, coaching basketball, staring at people at Mass, and falling asleep at the movie theater.
