The Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. What does it mean to inscribe your life with JMJ? I’ll give you a hint, it stands for Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

Just this past May, Pope Francis asked: “Imagine if a Martian showed up, all big ears and big nose like a child’s drawing, and he asked to be baptized. How would you react?” Hmmm. Can’t say I had thought of that, Holy Father. But our guest has! Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno has been a lecturer at Harvard University and MIT; has served in the US Peace Corps teaching physics at the University of Nairobi; and was a physics professor at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, before entering the Jesuits in 1989. An astronomer and curator at the Vatican Observatory for more than 20 years, Brother Guy was awarded the 2014 Carl Sagan Medal for outstanding communication by an active planetary scientist by the American…

Greetings,
This week we celebrate Thanksgiving — a day when we, as a nation, give thanks to God for all that we have and for all that we are. No matter where you are or who you are with, know that this Thanksgiving we at Busted Halo® give thanks to YOU for your generosity to us throughout the year.
Right after Thanksgiving, Advent begins. For Christians this is a time of expectation and preparation. In next Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples to “Be watchful! Be alert!…You do not know when the Lord of the house is coming.”
But are we prepared? Are we watching for the coming of the Lord? It’s so easy to be distracted in today’s world from the real Good News that can save us (did someone say Black…

Greetings,
I remember thinking that this past summer was a busy one for Busted Halo® Ministries. Well, summer was a day at the beach compared to the frenetic pace of fall. So far, September and October have flown by at breakneck speeds, but have also been very productive and fruitful. And I am grateful for the many ways the Holy Spirit has enlivened our ministry.

The culmination of our year-long strategic planning process has led us to launch a series of national focus group studies with young adults in their 20s, which will help us develop creative and effective ways to reach the elusive Millennial generation.

NBC Nightly News sent cameras into our “Busted Halo® Show” radio studios as we were covering the…
