In Episode 17 The Diaconate: This Time It's Permanent, we sit with Deacon Jodi Moscona who is a Deacon for the Diocese of Baton Rouge.
Ever want to know what a Deacon does? Are they clerics? What can and can't they do that a priest does?
This podcast covers many aspects of the Diaconate and will answer many questions you might have about this Vocation.
Deacon Jodi has a web site in which you can learn more about him and a book he co-authored.

On Episode 15 Late Vocation--Your life has just begun at 30, we visit with Mike Sanders, a new seminarian for the Diocese of Baton Rouge.
Mike is a unique case in that he is what we call a "late" vocation. Mike is 30 years old and has heard the call from God to serve as a priest.
I pick Mike's brain for about 20 minutes to find out why now? Why after going to college, having a good job, and living in the secular world does he feel the call now?
Mike is a personal friend and I pray that God always walks with him in his journey towards the priesthood.

EPISODE 14 EXORCISMS!
with Fr. Paul Counce
RITE OF EXORCISMS in the English vernacular
POSSESSED (the book about the real exorcism that the movie The Exorcist was very loosely based on)
Update from when I originally published this. There is a book a friend thought I would like. It is called An Exorcist Tells His Story. THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN THIS TOPIC!!! Written by Fr. Gabriel Amorth, he details the nature of evil and the forms it takes. I think this is one of the best books I have ever read on this topic.
(original music composed and played by me)

On this Episode 11, we sit with Ken Thevenet, Director of Liturgy and Music for St. Aloysius Parish in the Diocese of Baton Rouge. Ken has his Bachelors degree in Organ from the school of music at Louisiana State University and a Masters degree in Liturgical Music from The University of Notre Dame.
We get the chance to listen to Ken play some liturgical music on the organ at the beginning and end of the podcast. We also discuss with Ken what is considered appropriate music in liturgy and what the Church says about music in liturgy and how it should be used.
I would like to thank Ken for allocating time in his busy schedule to help us understand the importance of music and the role it plays.

The giant, huge, ginormous (is that even a word?) website, Busted Halo enjoyed my previous podcast on Canon Law so much, that they asked to use some of it on theirs (Big Honor).
I encourage everyone to give their podcast and especially their website a listen and a look. They have a dynamic site that has the answers to all kinds of topics about Catholicism. They also have a Sirius/XM show on satellite channel 117 called Busted Halo.
I would like to shout-out a special thanks to Mike Hayes (of a previous podcast) for PR'ing The Everyday Catholic. Check out his blog, Googling God, and purchase his book of the same name.
Here is the link to their Canon Law Podcast
Oh, and if you are on Facebook, add me as a friend (email@example.com). In today's world, we can never have to many friends.

In Episode 10 Canon Law 101, I stop by the office of Judicial Vicar for the Diocese of Baton Rouge, Fr. Paul Counce.
In a nutshell, this podcast contains the overview of Canon Law: What it is, what are canon lawyers, how does the Church use this type of law, and how we, as Catholics, will encounter canon law in our Church life.
We also discuss what to do if you see an "abuse" in the Church. How one should discern this "abuse" and the appropriate steps to report it. Don't go emailing the Bishop from your iphone during mass, please.
Fr. Counce is a wealth of knowledge and I hope to have him on future episodes dealing with issues we might encounter as lay Catholics and issues we might never (hopefully) encounter, including........
(Stay tuned for that one in the near future!)

In Episode 9 Googling God with Mike Hayes, I had the opportunity to hear author of Googling God and managing editor of BustedHalo.com speak. He was the keynote speaker at a local diocesan conference called Identity Theft: Is Your Catholic Identity Safe?
Mike spoke on the two distinct generations of young adults, Gen X and Millennials. He discusses what characterizes these two generations and how we, as Catholic ministers, can reach these two generations and help them connect to the Church and more importantly, how we as the Church can connect to them. He tells us how to do this by describing the different aspects of technology available to us today.
This podcast is longer than most of my podcasts, but I feel what he had to say is important and vital to anyone working with young adults. If you fall in this category, or are a DRE, catechist, or just want to know how to use what is available to connect to others in your parish or around the world, then this is the podcast for you.
I would like to thank Mike for allowing me to record his keynote address and if you would like to purchase his book (which I highly encourage) Googling God, you may either go to the Busted Halo site or to the Paulist Press site.

On Episode 8 The Everyday Catholic Videocast, I am interviewed by Fr. Paul Counce, host of a local Catholic television show called Conversations with Fr. Paul Counce. The interview begins with us discussing this podcast and how I am trying to reach Catholics using a modern media outlet. On the second part of his show, we discuss how different religions are using varying aspects of the media and if this is necessarily a healthy thing.
I would like to personally thank Fr. Counce for inviting me on his show and congratulate him on a wonderful show he has developed. His goal is to reach people within their homes and he does an exemplary job.
As you might have guessed, this is just the audio from the show. The actual show will start airing on March 29 @ 7:30 am and will run the entire week at varying times. To check showtimes and schedules you may log onto The Catholic Life Television website for the Diocese of Baton Rouge. From there you can clik programming and see showtimes.
As always, thank you for being a part of this ministry and thank you Fr. Counce for helping me promote this podcast.

In Episode 5 No Apologetic Apologies Here, I help you the everyday Catholic defend your faith. Apologetics is being able to defend your faith using Bible verses. Often times, as Catholics, we will be asked why we believe what we believe? Hopefully, I can help you answer these questions. I will begin with a common question that you might be asked and then give you the book, chapter, and verse in the Bible that will help you in your answer. I do not cover all the topics you might be asked, but I do list the major ones that you are more likely to be questioned on. If you have any questions after this episode, please email me at David@theeverydayCatholic.com Enjoy!!!

This is a little variation from my normal podcast, and don't worry, I am currently working on one. I wanted to show a little video I created of the Youth Group in the parish in which I am a member, St. Aloysius. I am involved with these kids and thought you would like to see the future of the Church. Thanks to an incredible youth minister that God has graced our parish with, Mr. Steven Brooksher, it appears the future is bright!!!

In the 3rd episode, A letter from St. Paul to the Freedom of Choice Act Supporters, I begin with a short history of who St. Paul was as a historical person. Often, as Catholics we tend to read the Scriptures but ignore the person who wrote them. I start with who he was, then on to his missions and a timeline of the epistles that he authored. I finish with a Hot Topic that, us, as Catholics, must do everything we can to defeat. The Freedom of Choice Act. (Don't you just love what it is called, makes it sound all fuzzy and warm) Just what is it and what does it do to current abortion legislation? I explain the key "fundamentals" of the horrific piece of proposed legislation. As always, I welcome feedback to David@TheEveryDayCatholic.com

In our 2nd Episode we visit with Lucia Leggio and discuss Catholic Universities with particular interest to the one she attended, Christendom in Virginia. We start by discussing the Land O'Lakes statement from 1967 and what sets Christendom apart from other Catholic Universities. She then tells us why she went there, what the academics were like, and how going to a Catholic University enriched her as a Catholic. As always, we love to hear feedback or comments. You can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sit back and enjoy the show. You might just learn something!

In our first episode, we talk with a lay Catholic, Steven Wallace. Steven is from Brusly, LA and attends St. John the Baptist. He is a rare individual because he home schools his kids, himself! We talk with Steven about how he implements the Catholic faith into his children's daily teachings. He also shares with us a near-death experience he had and a visit from Padre Pio during the time he was in a Coma.

Thank you for logging onto TheEverydayCatholic.com!
My goal is to provide an entertaining and educational podcast for you, The Everyday Catholic.
So.......just what am I referring to when I use the term, The Everyday Catholic? This is a two-fold answer: 1) An everyday Catholic is your average, everyday Catholic. You go to mass, try to live a Christian lifestyle, and know a little about your faith. 2) The second part is trying to live your life, Everyday, as a Catholic.
I intend to create podcasts that will make you learn and grow in your Catholic faith. Hopefully, with every podcast, you will learn a little more about what it means to be a Catholic and how to implement it into your Everyday life.
