Come Follow Me | Fr. Tom Sparacino reads from the Gospel of Matthew 11:28 ‘Come to me all you who labor and are burdened. And I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy and my burden light. | #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #catholic #testimony #CatholicTestimony #FollowtheJoy #ComeFollowMe #Fr.TomSparacino #ThoughtsandPonderingsCome Follow Me

Fr. Tom Sparacino reads from the Gospel of Matthew 11:28 ‘Come to me all you who labor and are burdened. And I will give you rest, take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy and my burden light.’

The Lord calls us. He has called us from the moment of our baptism. He’s called us into these new waters to come to come and be with us. Come and be filled.   Come and be strengthened. Come and have hope and how powerful a thought, all we need to simply do is to go, he says. Come and we go. The question is, do we go? Do we realize that our lives are not an option? That it’s a demand really of the Lord when he says, “Come, follow me.” It is a matter of life and death, heaven and hell, salvation, and damnation. When we feel that we are burdened, we need to come after him and he will make us disciples. He will strengthen us to live in his presence. We must try to form a habit, of always walking in his presence. We must live, eat, eat, literally Jesus. Love him with all your being. Then, and only then, will you be able to come and follow him.

Fr. Tom has been a priest of Jesus Christ for the Diocese of Pittsburgh since 1998. He has served as high school chaplain, and co-vocation director and is currently the Rector of St. Paul Seminary and the Director of Pre-ordination Formation. Fr. Tom has been the spiritual advisor to the Magnificat Pittsburgh Chapter since 2010. The Holy Spirit has poured His joy into Fr. Tom, and he gladly pours it out on all of us. His infectious laughter and lightheartedness and like a bright light in a dark world. We know you will be inspired as you listen to this joyful servant of the Lord.

Fr. Tom Sparacino’s teaching was given to the Pittsburgh Magnificat Chapter in August 2021.

Jesus Rejoices in the Father

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

Jesus Rejoices in the Father | This is a moment with Scripture reflecting on the Gospel of Luke 10: 21- 24. Let's set the framework for this reflection. 72 disciples have returned from the mission. Jesus sent them on a mission to every town and place he intended to visit | #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #catholicpriest #testimony #CatholicTestimony #JesusRejoicesintheFatherJesus Rejoices in the Father

This is a moment with Scripture reflecting on the Gospel of Luke 10: 21- 24. Let’s set the framework for this reflection. 72 disciples have returned from the mission. Jesus sent them on a mission to every town and place he intended to visit. A mission that sent them like lambs among wolves it sounds like a recipe for failure. Doesn’t it? Instead, they returned rejoicing because even the demons were subject to them when they invoked Jesus’s name. But Jesus tells them to rejoice, not because of the demon subjugation. Rather, rejoice because their names have been written in heaven. Moreover, this is the cause for Jesus’s spontaneous rejoicing and giving praise to the Father in the opening passage of Luke’s gospel. Just who are these 72 disciples? They’re humble souls to whom God has revealed the mysteries of his Kingdom.

In contrast to the trained religious leaders who may be puffed up with pride. From whom God has hidden the mysteries. This reversal is found elsewhere in Scripture. Recall the lowly shepherds to whom the birth of Jesus was first revealed. One would hardly call them wise and learn this great reversal being worked out by God is a reason for Jesus’s joyful praise. Yes, father, he says. Such has been your gracious will. As Christians, we all share in Jesus’s mission by virtue of our baptism. We don’t have to become scholars to bear witness to the Father. Son and Holy Spirit, this happens through the gift of faith. The same gift was given to the 72 disciples. It happens by the way we live our everyday lives. Uniting our love with the love of Jesus, to whom all things have been handed over by his father.

The Seven Sorrows of Mary

The Seven Sorrows of Mary | Deacon Dave reflects on Our Lady of Seven Sorrows celebrated on September 15th. Just as Mary is the mother of Jesus, she is mother to all his followers, she is mother to us, especially the mothers of today | #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #catholicpriest #testimony #CatholicTestimony #TheSevenSorrowsofMaryDeaconDave #TheSevenSorrowsofMary #TheSevenSorrows #DeaconDaveThe Seven Sorrows of Mary

The Seven Sorrows of Mary. Deacon Dave reflects on Our Lady of Seven Sorrows celebrated on September 15th. Just as Mary is the mother of Jesus, she is mother to all his followers, she is mother to us, especially the mothers of today. St. Louis de Montfort said, “if you put the love of all mothers into one heart it still would not equal the love of Mary for her children.” The seven sorrows are: 1. The Prophesy of Simion 2. The Flight into Egypt 3. The Loss of the Child Jesus 4. Mary Meets Jesus on the Way to Calvery. 5. The Crucifixion of Jesus 6. The Body of Jesus taken down from the Cross. 7. The Burial of Jesus.

The Blessed Mother knows the sorrow of today’s mothers. She connects with them heart to heart. Mothers of today can turn to Our Blessed Mother in both their joys and their sorrows.

DEACON DAVID HOCKWALT was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2012. He continues in active ministry today and is the spiritual advisor to the vicariate Life in the Spirit team.

We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this reflection. Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this reflection will help us all better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness. We want to come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me and holy is His Name!

Pat Crowley

Teaching Reflection from Fr. Pat Crowley. Magnificat is about witness, sharing their stories. Our story brings us deeper into the mystery of God’s love. As we ask the Blessed Mother for guidance, Mary helps move the freshness of the Spirit manifested in our lives into a deeper intimacy with Jesus.

Fr. Crowley shares how his experience in Medjugorje had a profound effect on him.  He listened to many confessions and saw many transformations. He shares how he was introduced to the baptism of the Holy Spirit in his priesthood and explains how the baptism of the Holy Spirit is an extension of one’s infant baptism. The Holy Spirit rekindles the fire within each of us.  Fr. Crowley reminds us to never underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit.

Father has been actively involved in healing ministry within the Charismatic Renewal since 1972. Since that time, he has been an eyewitness to many spiritual, physical, and emotional healings. God has used him as a most powerful instrument of His healing love.

Fr. Pat Crowley, CC.SS., (Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary), is the Spiritual Advisor for the North County San Diego Chapter of Magnificat.

A Reflection on Sending out Laborers Matt. 9:32-38 By Deacon David Hockwalt. What does the heart of God look like? Jesus is the perfect embodiment of God’s heart. Matthew tells us his heart was moved with pity as he surveyed the crowds before him. He had compassion that sprang out of profound love. Jesus knew that he would one day return to the Father and that his ministry needed to continue on earth. The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few. Jesus is referring to the harvest of evangelization. Pray for men and women who will dedicate themselves to the harvest.

A Reflection on The Choices We Make Matt. 7:12-14 By Deacon David Hockwalt

The Choices We Make. This gospel is about choices. The choice to live a life of their pagan occupiers or according to Jewish law and faith. They faced dilemmas whether to pay the Roman tax or be tied to the temple. Whether to acknowledge Caesar or Herod is King. Whether to separate themselves culturally or to embrace the Roman way of life. Jesus is pointing out that choices have consequences, good and bad. The harder choice is the better choice, the narrow road that leads to God. What are the parallels of ancient life and our life today?

Question about Paying Taxes

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

Question about Paying Taxes | A Moment in Scripture- The Question about Paying Taxes Mk. 12:13-17 By Deacon David Hockwalt | #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #catholicpriest #QuestionaboutPayingTaxesQuestion about Paying Taxes

A Moment in Scripture- The Question about Paying Taxes Mk. 12:13-17 By Deacon David Hockwalt

Question about Paying Taxes. This scripture shows the greatness of Jesus. Two enemies join forces: the Herodians and the Pharisees. They try to entrap Jesus by setting up a lose-lose situation. Taxes were a hot button issue. They ask Jesus if it is lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not? If Jesus agrees on taxation, he alienates the majority of Jews who can’t stand Roman rule. If he rejects the tax, he will be reported to the Roman authorities for instigating rebellion.

Jesus turned the lose-lose situation into a win-win. Because Caesar’s likeness is stamped on the coin for tax it should be given back to him as his rightful property. God’s image and likeness is stamped into every living person as we were created in the image of God. We have the higher duty of giving ourselves back to God by serving him. In these complex times we must discern among the likenesses who we are to give the rightful authority by whose image we are created.

God is Calling You

God is Calling You |Mary Wilson shares a scripture from John 15:16.| #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #testimony #MaryWilsonGod is Calling You ~ Thoughts and Ponderings

Did God choose Me? By Mary Wilson

God is Calling You. Mary Wilson shares a scripture from John 15:16. “You did not choose me; I chose you and appointed you to go bear fruit that will remain.” He chose you for a purpose with a plan in mind. He chose you specifically for what he calls you to do. He is willing to work with us right where we are and get us to a point where we are a better version of ourselves. We must be willing to surrender and live a righteous life. Everything God has planned depends on our ‘Yes’ every step of the way. We need to be nourished in order to grow, and God prunes us. An example of the pruning process is given so that we produce good fruit that will last for His kingdom. Don’t we all want what God has for us? We need to pray for direction so that we can be the Christ-like person God needs us to be. Everything God does is for our salvation and for those he puts in our path.

Mary Wilson presently serves on the (CST) Central Service Team of the Magnificat Ministry as Secretary.

Working on the Sabbath

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

Working on the Sabbath| Jesus had gone up to Jerusalem, where there was a pool known as Bethesda. These waters were thought to have curative power| #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #Workingonthesabbeth #sabbath #deacondavdhockwaltWorking on the Sabbath

A Moment with Scripture- Jn. 5:1-18 By Deacon David Hockwalt

Working on the Sabbath. Jesus had gone up to Jerusalem, where there was a pool known as Bethesda. These waters were thought to have curative power. Jesus sees a paralytic at the pool of Bethesda that had been ill for a very long time. He had trouble getting to the pool. At Jesus’ command, he was healed without going to the pool. He got up on his feet and picked up his mat, and walked for the first time in 38 years.

God is showing that he is bringing salvation to his people through his son. The local Jewish authorities were mad at the man for carrying his mat on a Sabbath day, violating a law. One could not carry a burden out of one’s house or through the city gate. The healing miracle that had just taken place did not seem to count in their eyes.  You might want to ask yourself if you focus on something substantial or trivial. Jesus is in trouble for violating the Sabbath and blasphemy. He called God his own father, making himself equal to God. Jews wanted to kill Jesus. Jesus brought healing, forgiveness, and divine judgment to the world at the risk of his own life. What are we willing to risk to be a disciple of Jesus?

Evangelization – A 3 Minute Meditation

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

Today’s topic is “Evangelization”.Evangelization – 3 Minute Meditations

Today’s topic is “Evangelization”. The words and writings of recent Popes have made “evangelization” a more common word in the Church today. What does it really mean and how do we evangelize? You might be surprised to find you are already an evangelist. Do you know what you are evangelizing?

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.”  Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these 3-minute meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic.  They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart.

Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

Two hundred Catholic women from all walks of life crowded into a Knights of Columbus hall on October 7, 1981, to have breakfast and to hear a woman’s personal
witness to the power of God in her life.

The women who left that hall were filled with a joy that only the Holy Spirit can give; that is, a deeper awareness of God’s loving presence in their lives and a burning desire to share this wonderful experience with more and more of their sisters in Christ.

The modest breakfast held on October 7, 1981, is today, a ministry to Catholic women known as “Magnificat” with Chapters in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

While the Magnificat Meal is the main function of the ministry, Magnificat is much more than “putting on a meal.” It is a time of praise and worship, fellowship, and prayer.
Magnificat is a private association of the Christian faithful under the vigilance and jurisdiction of the local ordinary. The ministry is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

I Was Pondering … Accidentals: 3-Minute Meditations

Accidentals – 3 Minute Meditations

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.”  Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these 3-minute meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic.  They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart.

Today’s topic is “Accidentals”. “Accidentals” are what we can perceive with our senses: sight, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching. Accidentals are just appearances. We generally contrast them with “substance” which describes the essence or true being. The Eucharist’s essence is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ.

Who’s The Real Enemy?

Who’s the real enemy? How is the enemy working to destroy us? Who’s the real enemy? How is the enemy working to destroy us?  What are the enemy’s tactics? In a reflection given July 1, 2020, Deacon Dave Hockwalt guides us to the answer.

DEACON DAVID HOCKWALT was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Washington, DC in a middle-class Catholic family. He attended Catholic grade school, high school, and college. You’d think with all that “saintly” upbringing he’d be firmly set on the straight and narrow path. But then came the 70’s and… well, so much for the “path”. A broken marriage and single parenting pulled the rug out from under him. A career change took him to Texas and eventually to California. But amid the uncertainty and upheavals of his journey, God kept pouring out His providence, even if David didn’t realize it. Then one day God chose to intervene in a very direct and powerful way, and David’s life was transformed dramatically. He was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2012, where he continues in active ministry and is the spiritual advisor to the vicariate Life in the Spirit team. His personal testimony will be in the next Magnificat Proclaims book to debut summer 2021.

What You Say Matters

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

What you say matters ... We can change what comes out of our mouths by changing what goes into our hearts. What we say makes a difference!

Jesus told the Pharisees: “By your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

When we study and pray Scripture, we are filled with the Word of God.

Meditating on daily Mass readings is one way to incorporate the scripture in our lives. The Divine Office and many other prayer-helps can be accessed through the Treasury of Prayer link at the bottom of the Magnificat website: https://magnificat-ministry.net/

The Rosary with its mysteries, is completely scriptural and historically powerful. The Magnificat Ministry Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MagnificatMinistry has several recorded rosaries to assist you in praying the Rosary.

We can change what comes out of our mouths by changing what goes into our hearts. With Jesus Christ, the living Word of God in our hearts, what we say can make a difference for better!

The Paradox of the Holy Cross

The Paradox of the Holy CrossThe Paradox of the Holy Cross – what has been a source of pain, suffering, and death has become a source of healing, health, and restoration. What is the antidote for the venom of original sin?

During Lent, we are called to pause and reflect. Have we got our priorities straight? Are we keeping our eyes on Jesus? What does God want us to do or not do? How does He call us to change? We pray that you have experienced the presence of Jesus Christ this Lent. We trust that this reflection will help each of us come to better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness.

Are we still walking with Him, step by step, on the road to Calvary? Are we, am I, eagerly anticipating Easter Sunday morning?

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

Two hundred Catholic women from all walks of life crowded into a Knights of Columbus hall on October 7, 1981, to have breakfast and to hear a woman’s personal
witness to the power of God in her life.

The women who left that hall were filled with a joy that only the Holy Spirit can give; that is, a deeper awareness of God’s loving presence in their lives and a burning desire to share this wonderful experience with more and more of their sisters in Christ.

The modest breakfast held on October 7, 1981, is today, a ministry to Catholic women known as “Magnificat” with Chapters in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

Christmas Message from Magnificat

A Production of the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network.

Christmas Message from Magnificat MinistriesThe Christmas story, as told in Luke 2:1-14, is timeless. We celebrate with great joy the birth of Jesus. He comes as the least among us – a child, born in a stable.

What a location for the King of Heaven and Earth to make an appearance! Throughout the ages, we have joined with the angels as they praise – Glory to God in the highest!

This is also our prayer of praise today.  At this holy time of year, let us take a few minutes to listen to and reflect on God’s goodness.

Christ is born for us. This is the message of Christmas. This is the good news every day!

Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic Women, prays that you and yours have a blessed Christmas Season and a joy-filled Happy New Year!
