Well, Lent has done gone and Lented, and Triduum has, uh, Triduumed. The Easter eggs have all been hunted, and though Eastertide rolls on, it's time for Dizzy & Ges to bring the current season of Church Drunk podcasts to a close. So pour something paradoxical and join them in a revisit of their Lenty reading homework - Sr. Joan Chittister's Between the Darkness and the Daylight. Because unless one confronts life's contradictions, one will always contradict life's confrontations!
The long, dark days of Lent are over, and it's time to celebrate! And in Catholic Churchy circles, celebration means Sacraments. Join Dizzy & Ges (and Baby Ges!) at the intersection of Confirmation Lane and First Communion Way. We'll hang out, brown bag it on the corner, watch the traffic go by...and never get our mass card punched!
Do you love Jesus? Well, you got a big week coming up! Do you love Game of Thrones? Well, your Palm Sunday might be all about John Snow & Co. Do you love Jesus AND Game of Thrones? Well, Dizzy & Ges are here to sing you a very special song of ice and fire and palms and crosses and cocktails!
Do you ever get that feeling where you feel crummy about feeling great? Or you feel great about feeling crummy? Or you feel like the only way to feel better is to walk through a dark and sinister valley of crumminess? Well, welcome to Lent! Dizzy & Ges are here to help you sort through that huge pile of glorious Lenten suck with Episode 64 - Between the Darkness & the Drinkies!
It's a Royal Rumble of Confession vs. Penance vs. Reconciliation as Church Drunk tackles the one Sacrament that has second-graders across the country (and some grown-ass adults!) quaking in their boots. Examine your conscience, pour yourself a tall one, and buckle in for Episode 63 - Confession Confusion!
With Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday come and gone, we all know it's that time of year again - Lent! Dizzy & Ges are ready to jump into 40-ish days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, but not without the requisite of bellyaching and a fair amount of boozy special sauce to grease those ever-repentant wheels. Join us, and jump into Church Drunk Episode 61 - Lentishness!
King cakes are baking, beads are flying, and drinks are being tippled into every little sinner on Bourbon Street (well...even more so than usual), so it must be Fat Tuesday! Here at Church Drunk, we feel right at home on a quasi-religious holiday instituted specifically for drinking and gluttony, so join Dizzy & Ges for a very special bonus episode to close out Season 6 and/or kick off Season 7 of Church Drunk, and laissez les bon temps rouler!
Have you ever had that "St. Sebastian" feeling where you've been pierced with enough arrows to make you look like a beatific porcupine, but you're not quite dead yet? Ever had your eyes (or other bits) put on a platter for the world to ogle (metaphorically speaking, of course)? Well then, this very special episode of Church Drunk is for you. Time to pour one out for the martyrs, y'all!
Watch out! Dizzy & Ges are about the get theological up in here with a deep dive into the sweet, filthy mystery of the incarnation. Because once the tree has come down and the twinkling lights are off of the garage, what we're all left with is a tiny, little God-child who needs to grow up and save the world. So pour a glass and raise it to Mary & Joseph as Church Drunk tackles God-in-the-Flesh!
