Here’s a little something to listen to if you’ve a mind: a February 5, 2022 “Almost Good Catholics” podcast with Krzysztof (Chris) Odyniec and I entitled “Divine Intoxication.”

Chris lives in the Berkeley, California area and has just launched this new venture. The thrust is “Interesting conversations with interesting people about religion and faith,” and he is smart, sharp, and delightful.

The two of us discuss addiction vs free will, the contemporary relevance of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the glory of womanhood, my weird little life, ET CETERA! 

Speaking of interesting, in today’s Gospel (Mark 6:53-56) I noticed that the people from the surronding towns bring the sick people on mats to Christ “in the marketplaces.” Why not the temple, or some quiet, off-to-the-side, place where everyone can appropriately pray and ponder? No, smack in the middle of life, with all its distractions, conflicts, temptations, delights, dramas, noise and color.

May we all touch the tassel of his cloak in our markeplaces today–and be healed.

    A friend of mine once said “Beethoven is the only one who understands me.” Heather, you and Thérèse get me. Thank you!

  2. Ms King, I’ve never heard you NOT be a great guest but he really got to the heart of several things I had not heard or read of you over the years. Good on you both! It was Providence to hear this today. Thank you. -Angela

      Thanks so much, Angela, and feel free to call me Heather! A friend heard the podcast and texted me, tongue-in-cheek, “I never get tired of hearing you talk about yourself.” “Me either!” I told him…of course I hope to be pointing to a power infinitely greater than me…
