CVPC #14 – Fr. Jay Finelli – The iPadre (part two)

This week we hear part two of the interview with everyone’s favorite iPadre, Fr. Jay Finelli. From his own “about” page:

Father Jay Finelli is a priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence in the state of Rhode Island. He began building web pages in 1995 and started podcasting in September of 2005. This is a great new means of evangelization. Pope John Paul II said that we are in need of a new evangelization. Podcasting is a small part of this new work of evangelization. All of us need to do our part in spreading the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I had a lot of issues with the audio on this episode, but it is certainly worth the listen.

CVCP #5 – What can we do?

Sorry there is no interview for this episode. I’ve been real busy with work and haven’t been able to get one “in the can” so to speak. Rest assured I have lots of exciting things coming up in future episodes. In the meantime, what sorts of things can we the lay faithful do to increase vocations? Also, some feedback from a fellow podcaster and a beautiful prayer we should all be praying and teaching our children.

Tupelo Catholic

iPadre’s website

 Prayer for Vocations

Heavenly Father, bless your Church with an abundance of holy and zealous priests, deacons, brothers and sisters.

Give those you have called to the married state and those you have chosen to live as single persons in the world, the special graces that their lives require.

Form us all in the likeness of your Son so that in him, with him and through him we may love you more deeply and serve you more faithfully, always and everywhere. With Mary we ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer for Guardian Angel

Dear Angel ever at my side,
how loving you must be.
Please whisper to your loving
child, what God wants me to be.
Amen
