Father Len’s Podcast

Fr Len and Holy Apostles parishioner Irish McMahon have created a new podcast. They describe it this way: “Two fun-loving and God-fearing Irishmen, a Catholic priest and his good friend, grapple with the big questions about faith, religion, and life.”

Check out the latest episode:

Father Len explores the relationship between gratitude, happiness, and finding the presence of God in everyday life.
Highlights, Ideas, and Wisdom
  • The custom of athletes and entertainers thanking Jesus after winning games and awards inspired this episode.
  • Father Len uses the ancient Jewish feast that celebrates the birthdays of trees to reveal the importance and value of gratitude.
  • Gratitude helps prevent narcissism and entitlement.
  • Gratitude helps us grow and mature as true human beings.
  • Gratitude makes us happy.
  • Gratitude improves our health.
  • Gratitude makes us more compassionate.
  • Father Len introduces “The Daily Examen” gratitude exercise created by St. Ignatius.
