The story of Esau and Jacob made me laugh today. Sounds like 2 teenagers in my house. "I'm starving to death!"

"It's one thing to praise God when we see his presence, it's one thing to prase God when we understand his work but it is another thing to say I'm in the darkness, I do not get this and yet You're calling me to keep putting one foot in front of the other." I think many of us, me a specially need to remember these wise words!

Fr Mike, your reading of the scripture is wonderful. especially when you read Job, it is like being with Job and hearing his pleas. it makes me so sorry for him. Thank goodness I know how it ends or I would really have trouble listening to his story. Thank You.

Fr. Mike beyond blessed to have stumbled upon this podcast. My personal goal this year was to read the bible on my own but I would never have been able to reach the level of understnading that you provide on the daily. Thank you and I pray for you to continue to share with us this love letter from the Lord.

Bugs Bunny ironically calling Elmer Fudd "Nimrod" is how the meaning got switched. Too many people didn't know who Nimrod was, so they assumed he was like Elmer Fudd. Thank you for doing this podcast!
