    I have couple comments regarding this podcast. The discussion of Protestant churches named for saints brought to mind the Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix which has a shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe. That threw me a loop when I spotted it. The list of feast days in their prayer book also was a shock. You also discussed parishes merging. I have seen 4 parishes combined (a new church is being built) and I am aware of an area where the Dean discussed the probability that five parishes would be combined. You also discussed circuit riding. I have been to a parish that had a deacon, but shared a priest with a number of parishes, not having a priest every week. The week I was there the last time they had a priest it was an Archbishop (Cardinal) from the opposite side of the country. He had come to officiate at a wedding.

    The lay Franciscan leading my Bible study made us draw up personal lists of prayer intentions to pray every day. Fr Dave and the rest of the Paulists that used to be at St Thomas Aquinas were included in my intention list. (Plus the priests at my current parish of St Thomas Aquinas. I cannot escape him even with moving!)
