My Writings. My Thoughts.

July 15, 2014 – Daniel Oberreuter, Lead Singer for “The Thirsting”

// July 15th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Joe and Daniel discussed his upbringing, and his journey to a deeper faith through the most Holy Rosary. After obtaining a degree in Theology, Daniel felt called to start a Catholic Rock Band. It is here, in this ministry, that he brings glory to God using the special gifts and talents he was given. Joe highlighted and played two songs, “Ocean of Mercy” from their first album “Companions of the Lamb” and “Stepping in to the Day” from their second album, “Universal Youth”. The authentic Catholic theology represented in the lyrics is prayerful, introspective, and exciting. Their musical style and sound is reminiscent of many of the bigger mainstream bands over the last twenty years. It is energetic and highly entertaining! They can be found at

July 4, 2014 – Spiritual Tepidity

// July 4th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Joe discussed the dangers of spiritual tepidity, that halfhearted service to God which brings about spiritual death. The germs of laziness and worldliness will kill our soul. We must be mindful of the great sacrifice our loving Lord made for us in His Passion and Death. Our response ought to be one of enthusiastic loyalty and service to our Lord and His most holy will. At the end of the day, it is our eternal salvation that is at stake and nothing is more important or worth a greater sacrifice. Remember, that greatness’s holiness lies in not simply avoiding evil, but in doing good!

// June 27th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Joe interviewed Curtis Powell, the founder of Holy Family Press. Holy Family Press produces world class Catholic CD’s that dramatize true stories of Eucharistic Miracles and the love and protection of our Blessed Mother and of our Guardian Angels. During today’s broadcast, we aired one of those true stories, “The Maiden of Creteil”, which recounts a miraculous healing of a young girl. These graces and miracles are still available to us today if only we have the faith that is made manifest in absolute trust in our loving Lord and His omnipotent power. Please visit them online.

June 20, 2014 – Attachments

// June 20th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Joe discussed the trappings of attachments. A common problem we see in the world today. It is through mortification and prayer that this modern form of slavery is overcome and the path to holiness is achieved.

// June 6th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Joe discussed the beautiful feast day the Church celebrates this coming Sunday. The transformational seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to all of us.Through daily prayer and living in a state of grace, we can use these gifts to defeat the devil, do Our Lord’s most holy will and grow in holiness.

May 30, 2014 – Charity and Mercy

// May 30th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Joe discussed the recent meeting between our Holy Father and Fr. De Paolis. The mercy showed to Fr. De Paolis on behalf of the Holy Father was extraordinary and serves as a lesson for all of us to follow. Charity must reign in our lives! This is especially true in the face of injustice and hardships. As Blessed Mother Theresa says, “Charity begins today”. Let’s heed her call to fulfill our Baptismal promises and lead ourselves and those entrusted to us, through God’s grace, to a life of virtue and sanctity. For in the end, that is all that truly matters.

He congratulated the faithful for being bold and standing up for the Truth, encouraged the faithful to continue to be strong and confirmed the Catholic’s unquestionable victory in the public square. Joe also reaffirmed Catholic teaching regarding the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist.

April 25, 2014 – Book Release– A Catechism for Business, tough ethical questions & insights from Catholic teaching

// April 25th, 2014 // No Comments » // Spirit and Truth Live

Guest – Joseph E. Capizzi, Ph.D.

Joe and Joseph discussed his exciting new book, (coauthored with Andrew V. Abela, Ph.D.). The main contribution of this book was to organize in one volume Church teaching of relevance to business and economics by topic and specific question. The unbiased nature of letting the documents speak for themselves is powerful!

Joe and Joseph’s enthusiastic discussion hit several high points such as: integration of our faith with our work, developing our conscience, just wage, finding happiness in business, and church’s role in business and economic theory.

The book is an indispensable tool for business men and women who desire to reach the next level of business and personal satisfaction.
