A Tale of Two Johns – January 3, 2024

1 JN 2:29–3:6 & Jn 1:29-34

  • Father explains the Temple, John the Evangelist & John the Baptist


  • (20:46) – the Holy Spirit devotion 

Word of the Day: Devil 


  • (25:26) – At Mass for Christmas Eve and the Priest ‘sang oh come let us adore him’ during the consecration. Did that make the Eucharist invalid?
  • (27:05) – Our pastor doesn’t want us to bow at the tabernacle but at the altar. Is that okay?
  • (29:12) – Is sending kids to catholic school considered tithing?
  • (30:48) – When did the Holy Family flee to Egypt & when did they get back to Jerusalem?
  • (32:50) – Could you talk about the people who returned to Nazareth from Babylon?
  • (36:13) – Thank you Father for all you explanations!
