I am at camp for the next two weeks, so I will not put out my regular podcast. Instead, I will be sharing live recordings of what a Baldhead Bible chapel is like. This week I am sharing the last chapel in a series on the life of Jacob that I did at Trout Creek Bible Camp back in 2019. By experiencing a whole chapel from Bible quiz time all the way …
 
St. Paul longed for the return of Jesus Christ because it meant the renewal of his body. It meant the putting off of the temporal tent and the putting on of the eternal, heavenly body. Why? Because he understood that the resurrection and ascension of Jesus meant all the promises of God the Father were going to be fulfilled for those brought into hi…
 
The final days of King Ahab are an interesting glimpse into how the natural and supernatural worlds intermingle. King Ahab of Northern Israel and King Jehosophat of Judah decide to take back Ramoth-Gilead from Ben-Hadad II, the King of Syria. Before they decide to go into battle, Jehosophat asks for a prophet of Yahweh to seek the Lord. What happen…
 
St. Paul speaks of the many sufferings he has endured in carrying the Gospel to various peoples. Despite all of this, he rejoices in his Savior. How can he do this? What leads him to continue pushing forward to know Jesus? Father Jeremiah reflects on this and how the weight of glory carries St. Paul throughout his days. Image: by Greg. Man starring…
 
Have you ever seen a grown man throw a fit and pout and sulk around like a bratty little kid? Well, I have, and it might have been me and it was not pretty. This week, we hear a story from the life of King Ahab where he did not get what he wanted, so he threw a fit and cried on his bed. But you know who saw it? Do you know who came to Ahab and told…
 
I wonder if anyone here has ever felt under-appreciated, overlooked, or even forgotten. If so, then this homily is for you. Today we’re going to sing the praises of one of the most under-appreciated and over-looked parts of the Mass. Everyone always talks about how the scripture readings spoke to them, or how great the music is, or even sometimes h…
 
Trinity Sunday is the Sunday in which we reflect on the meaning and importance of the doctrine of the Trinity. Father Jeremiah considers what it isn’t, what it is, and why any of this matters to us.

We take a break from the story of Elijah to follow some events from the life of King Ahab. We are working our way through the book of First Kings, and the writer of First Kings stops the story of Elijah to look at another dumb move from Ahab. It involved a guy named Ben-Hadad the II and one of the Sons of the Prophets getting punched in the face. L…
 
The Holy Spirit descended at Pentecost, which is a Jewish feast. Why did He descend on that particular day? Father Jeremiah walks through this unique coming of the Holy Spirit during a very particular Jewish festival and the way that He came reflecting the actions of God in the Old Testament. image: The Holy Spirit Initiates the Pentecost, Engravin…
 
Elijah just defeated 450 prophets of Baal; he just ran 30 plus miles in the power of the Lord and outran Ahab's chariot. He saw the Lord rain down fire from heaven, he saw the Lord raise a young lad from the dead, and he saw the Lord provide rain, gallons of it as His word. But when he receives a threat from Queen Jezebel, it makes him so afraid he…
 
Jesus’ ascension is an oft overlooked event in our Savior’s life, and yet, it brings a completion of redemption as he presents himself to his Father in heaven for our sake and becomes our eternal intercessor. Father Jeremiah considers a few of the implications of this reality in his sermon for the Sunday after the Ascension. Image: Christ Ascending…
 
This story recounts Elijah taking on the prophets of Baal. On the outside, that is all it looks like: a struggle between Elijah and 450 prophets of Baal. But in reality, it is a clash of supernatural forces, and it reveals the bigger struggle of Yahweh against the forces of darkness that strive to destroy all that is good and holy. Listen on as we …
 
Jesus told his disciples that they were to abide in him and that they were his friends. How important is it that they were considered the friends of God the Son? What does this mean for us today? Father Jeremiah explores this in his sermon today. Image: Jesus Calls the First Disciples, Ravenna, Photo taken by Edith OSB, licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2…
 
Elijah is living with a widow and her son. He is enjoying the family life and the endless pancakes. But then tragedy strikes. In the middle of this tragedy, God works a miracle through Elijah, reminding those who listen that God should always get the glory even in the middle of difficult times. To follow along for this week's story turn to I Kings …
 
Elijah is on the run, being hunted by Ahab and Jezebel. Where is he going to hide for three years until this famine ends? Where in Northern Israel can he go not to be found? Well, maybe the Lord knows the best place to send him is not somewhere in Israel but somewhere outside of Israel. Gentile territory. And who better to take care of Elijah than …
 
Jesus as our good shepherd is one who will lay down his life for the sheep. He is completely different from the hired hands who flee when the wolf comes. He defends his sheep and cares for them because they are his own. Father Jeremiah considers this truth in his sermon today. Image: Shepherd with His Flock, by Francesco Londonio, CC0 1.0. Image lo…
 
Elijah. One of the great heroes of the Bible. We have done a four-part series on Elijah before, but we would like to look at his story afresh. A verse by verse retelling of the whole of Elijah's story. It also is an important part of the story of I Kings and the story of Israel in general. Elijah is a man that God asked to stand up against a cultur…
