Poco a Poco Episodes

Get Over Yourself

The fraternal life is not accessory to life. We’re coming to the desert together, which constantly challenges each of us to give ourselves to the Lord and to each other. We belong to one another. Then there are times where the hardest part isn’t giving…

This Is My Beloved Son

Being a son means that you have a Father. The first and most important identity: son. This is the foundational identity that the Father gives us — everything else builds on this. We’re not talking about the Father as an idea or a concept. Because you can’t have…

Rending the Heavens | Lent 2022

Sometimes Lent is a missed opportunity. We focus too much on what we’re going to give up, what we’re going to do, etc. This year, focus on our desire to have a Lent that brings us into contact with Jesus. Where are we going, and why are we going there? Jesus…

Confronted by the Eucharist

When you have a conversion, you live a Eucharistic life, with a gravitational pull to be with Jesus. There, no matter how you feel, you know you’re not alone. It’s not just about our desire to go to him, though — he is also drawing us to himself. Allow yourself to be drawn…

From Fullness For Fullness

When we get to know Jesus, our need for “stuff” — for entertainment, for status — is lessened. Besides, we have to stop pretending that stuff and noise and grasping doesn’t have an effect on our lives. Really examine it in your own life; the truth is that prayer only works in silence…

Loving to the End

The first big “yes” — when we originally orient our lives to Christ — is not the most important. It’s the later yesses, of a deeper surrender and trust and giving of our lives, that mean a lot more. At some point, it’s not enough to be doing the right things; there must still be a desire for even…

Thy Will Be Done

This is NOT a How to Discern episode. It’s much closer to the foundation. What does the “will of God” even mean? What about “surrendering my life to God”? Discernment isn’t a calculation or program or roadmap, it’s not a “do this and do that and God’s mystery in your life will be revealed…

A New Vision

There’s a simple test of whether a conversion is authentic: do you treat people differently, particularly the poor? Does your spiritual life get reduced to “me”? Or to an exodus from caring about yourself at all? Your prayer is measured in charity. The quality of your Holy Hour can only be measured…

Optimizing Confession

Going to confession regularly can become routine — a checklist — instead of what it can be: an encounter with God. Examine not only your sins, but also the one you’ve sinned against; the Lord. Because there’s a difference between forgiveness and reconciliation. You receive forgiveness; you’re…

Healed By His Wounds

Remembering your sin can be uncomfortable. But it’s not about the sin — remembering your sin is remembering God’s mercy. It’s going back to Jesus’s presence at that moment, and to the way he changed it. Remembering that is the start of understanding your conversion more deeply, and to living your…
