TCGS Podcast #52: Cookie Thieves, Lino's General Audience, and book blurbs

While the cat's away the mice will play. Lino returns from his trip to Cincinnatti to discover that the box of Girl Scout cookies he left on his desk is nearly empty. An on air-trial ensues in which producer Maureen, Adam Hamway from "The Catholics Next Door" and Brett Siddell of the "Busted Halo Show" admit they all had their hands in the cookie jar. Maureen claims Lino deserved to have the cookies stolen, Adam is somewhat contrite and Brett says he'd do it again. Lino deems them all sinners. Lino shares his weekly general audience, including a requisite Pope Benedict XVI impression. Then Lino asks listeners who they think should write a blurb for his upcoming book "Sinner". Fr. Rob suggests 80s TV star Webster, to the delight of everyone instudio.

TCGS Podcast #51: Inflight Prayer and Novenas Answered

Lino starts off with a story about a harrowing flight back from Cincinatti and reveals that he always silently prays to himself before takeoff. Campus minister Fr. Jim Chern talks about his overwhelming fear of flying and why he always goes "full priest" and prays aloud on planes. Then Lino updates the crew on his 9 day novena to St. Therese of Lesieux. He prayed he would see roses and on the 8th day of the novena small roses appeared in the office. Listeners took a crack at what Lino had prayed about; guesses included the priesthood, marriage and what type of sandwich he should eat. Turns out Lino was praying whether or not he should stay at The Catholic Channel. No worries! St. Therese of Lesieux said he should stick around.
