Show Notes – A Good Habit 4/23/14

A Good Habit Show NotesHello and happy Thursday to all of you.  We hope you’re enjoying your Easter Octave – don’t forget to keep the Easter celebrations going.

Yesterday Fr. Wade Menezes, CPM was on A Good Habit, and he packed a lot of information into the show.  You can listen to it here: 

As we mentioned, he was on our show last November and we recently re-aired that episode, which you can find on our Show Notes post here, along with the handouts from that show (about the seven capital sins and their corresponding virtues and vices).


“Meet the saint version of you” – the podcast I mentioned from Taylor Marshall can be found here.

Some books that were mentioned:

Theology of the Body: Human Love in the Divine Plan

The Church Visible

Ocean of Mercy (DVD)

The Temperament God Gave You (we didn’t talk about a book, but this is a good introduction to the four temperaments).

Father Wade talked about the definition of sin, which begins in the Catechism with paragraph 1849.  You can read it online here.

Sr. Grace Marie told a beautiful story about Pope John Paull II, mercy and a homeless priest, which Dr. Scott Hahn recounted on Mother Angelica’s live show April 25, 2001.  The show can be  listened to here.  The story begins around the 46 minute mark. It’s a beautiful story to hear, especially just a few days before our incredible Pope is declared a saint.

Speaking of the canonization, don’t forget to watch it on EWTN, either live, for the die-hard saint-loving souls out there, or when it re-airs at a more decent hour.  It will air live at 2:30am Central time on Sunday morning, and re-air at 6pm Central Sunday evening, and Monday at 10pm.  You can also stream it online if EWTN is not available in your area, just go to



Show Notes – A Good Habit 4/16/14

A Good Habit Show NotesHello, everyone.  Sorry these show notes are so late – between the last days of Holy Week and the Easter celebrations I completely forgot about posting this.

The music featured on the show was from the CD Lent at Ephesus by the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles.  You can find it on iTunes, Amazon, and at their website.

The Jimmy Akin article we mentioned, 6 Things to Know About the Triduum can be found Continue reading

A blast from the past


When we walked into the studio this past Wednesday for our show, we were quite surprised to see an old friend standing there!  Fr. Wade Menezes, from the Fathers of Mercy, had been a guest on Greg and Julie Alexander’s show that day, and happened to still be there when we arrived for A Good Habit.  Sr. Grace Marie wrangled him into being a guest on our show and we all had so much fun.  If you didn’t catch the show on Wednesday, you can listen to it here.

Fr. Wade was our first chaplain at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament when we moved to Hanceville, and believe us when we tell you he’s a great preacher and teacher.  We couldn’t write fast enough, trying to take notes on everything he was saying during the show.  Father spoke about the seven capital sins, their corresponding virtues, and most interesting of all, their opposite extremes – this is something that you don’t often hear about.  He had a really helpful handout which he kindly allowed us to share with you.  You can find the handout below in pdf form:

The Seven Capital Sins & their Corresponding Virtues & Extremes

Thank you, Father Wade, for braving the air waves with us. We, and our listeners, had such a great time and learned so much.
