St. Joseph’s Workshop with Father Matthew Spencer, November 21, 2017

On today’s show:

  • Father speaks about mid-life crises. It seems that most people don’t go through a mid-life crisis, the studies are divided. Everyone, at any stage of life, needs to have a relationship with Jesus.
  • The Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary reminds us that Mary’s entire life was given over to God. We also remember cloistered men and women. Instead of living in the world, they extract themselves from the world and pray for the world. We each have different roles to play.
  • Father reviews a study that 20% of Cancer patients experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When we want to run away from God, that’s when we have to go back.
  • Therese of Lisieux is a patroness of missionaries though she never left the convent. If you go to Mass at a convent or monastery, you will find preaching on contemporary issues although it might not include the latest news. They need to know trends of the world – because they are praying for the world.
