    Can’t help wondering what Saint John Vianney would have made of it though, Raven.


  2. A priest who makes a deep impression by speaking profound truths in simple, dramatic language – I think this is the way St. John Vianney must have sounded to villagers and other people in nineteenth-century France. Both priests, it seems to me – St. John Vianney and the priest in the video – are saying essentially the same thing. It’s just that they are doing what pastors have done for two thousand years: adjusting their language, their style of speaking, and their intellectual level so that they can be more easily understood by the people they are addressing.

    I have heard Father Richards preach before he def has a talent for it. I just don’t trust some of his orthodoxy, in some very important points he seems a bit off.

    If someone was capable of pleasing every Catholic, even Toad might agree he had witnessed a miracle.

    Good sell on making a good confession! Glad Fr. Richard’s talks about sins that we know we are guilty of, practical approach. He doesn’t beat around the bush. As adults we can no longer use the laundry list of a second grader.
    Taylor Marshall’s use of PALE GAS – the virtues – is also a great approach too!.


  6. Brother Burrito says:

    Fr Larry Richards is a Catholic spiritual pastor of genius: He makes me think, and pray, and motivates me with his dry and wry humour.
