Episode 25: “What does love mean to you?”
Episode 25 is a post Valentine’s Day Podcast. We share the answers our listeners wrote in as well as those people we spoke to live on the question - “what does love mean to you.” We hear from middle school, high school, young adults and mature adults as well as parent listeners who share their answers. We hope you find it as interesting as I did on the differences and similarities of their answers. It is striking that the answers reflect our Bishop episcopal motto “Amar es Entregarse” (the total giving of oneself). Self sacrifice seemed to resonate in the responses.

Episode 22: “To Bring them hope and be the Church for them” Missionary Cenacle of the Holy Trinity
Episode 22 we speak to a missionary group. This is our connection with them. | The Missionary Cenacle Family are a spiritual family within the Catholic Church called the Missionary Cenacle Family. They have 4 branches. The Founders are Fr. Thomas A. Judge, CM, Mother Boniface Keasey, and Dr. Margaret Healy. In 1909 Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge, CM became more and more concerned about Catholics losing their faith. The churches in Brooklyn where he was ministering were full, but he saw that many people, particularly immigrants from traditionally Catholic countries, were not coming to Church. He was aware that as a priest he was not too popular with some of these non- practicing Catholics. Knowing this awareness to be an urging of the Holy Spirit, Fr. Judge invited a group of apostolic catholic women to meet with him to pray and plan about the problem of those Catholics in risk of losing the faith. That first meeting which took place in Brooklyn, NY at St. John’s Parish was the beginning of what was to become the Missionary Cenacle Apostolate (MCA). The MCA includes married couples and those who chose to be single without vows. From this lay organization eventually came two new missionary religious congregations: The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity (Catholic sisters) and the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity (Catholic brothers and priests). Fr. Judge believed in the capacity of ordinary men and women to love and serve God in the ordinary circumstance of their lives. He taught that by being a loving presence to the people we meet in our daily life we live out our Baptismal call to be Apostles. This is a true family of missionaries who strive to live a simple life through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Through the providence of God in every day life, they live out their baptismal call by reaching out to the poor and marginalized. Seeking to be that bridge that brings those that have left the Church or the faith altogether to bring them hope and be Church for them. As a family they share the same rule of life and traditions and Customs that make us family. They meet regularly and seek guidance through spiritual directors. Doctor Margaret Healy was an early associate of Father Judge. In 1928 she was asked by Fr. Judge to assume the role of General Custodian for the combined lay groups which became known as the Missionary Cenacle Apostolate. She was to hold this office until 1964. She was instrumental in the formation of the Blessed Trinity Missionary Institute (BTMI) which is the secular branch for single women with private vows. The Missionary Cenacle Family exists to glorify the Triune God by participating in the mission of Jesus as an apostolic family which is missionary in the providence of daily life. | Learn more about this group and find out how “This Connected.” || Send email to Catholic.dad50@gmail.com | follow us on Instagram at Catholic.dad or on Facebook at This Connected with Catholic.dad | Please Rate Share And give us a review | we will be praying for u-please pray for us - #BBlessedB3rd

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgment. Make us the terror of burglars, the friends of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations. You know, St. Micheal, from your own experiences with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the devil, and your angelic self- control give us inspiration. And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all the people. - Author Unknown
