Season 4 wraps up with a wander through the early Christian communities and the lovely literature that they brought forth on the mystery and wonder of Jesus. This one goes out to all of our fellow bibliophiles, and especially to those select few non-canonical gospel fans out there (you know who you are!). Grab yourself a tall glass of Eastertide and join Dizzy & Ges for a good old-fashioned nerd out!
Eastertide has arrived! And with it, 50 days of feasting replace our Lenten fast. Congratulations, you've all made it to the pot of gold at the end of the grayscale rainbow that is Lent. Join Dizzy & Ges in this very special feast-centric episode of the podcast, in which Church Drunk seeks to answer the age-old question of what exactly will be on the menu when you take your seat at the Lord's table. Enjoy!
So around this time every year a very famous college basketball tournament is played, and sure, it's full of "madness" - diaper dandies and buzzer beaters and rim rockers galore. But you know what's really "madness"? Climate change, that's what. And trade wars. And corporate greed. So with that thought in mind, Dizzy & Ges set out to create a new kind of March bracket, one that pits the forces of chaos against the calming remedies that restore order and peace to our lives. It's late in Lent. We're at our wits' end. Join us for Church Drunk March Madness!
Each year, all of us here at Church Drunk eagerly anticipate the arrival of March 17th. It is a day filled with drinking, singing, and general merriment, and at the heart of it all is one of the heroes of the Catholic Church. However, St. Patrick does not hold a monopoly on his little square of the calendar. With that thought in mind, join Dizzy & Ges in yet another installment of Drunk Lives of the Saints, and hopefully we will all learn a bit about who else celebrates a feast on March 17th...and how well (or how poorly) your humble hosts can hold their liquor.
Still ravaged by The Flu, potato blight, and Lenten-induced shellfish allergies, Dizzy & Ges carry on through this most blessed season of prayer and penance. And how could they not, when the Sunday gospel reading dials up a heavy dose of messianic rageousness? It's practically international Church Drunk day when churchgoers around the world celebrate this most unique of all charisms. So flip over a table, grab a cocktail, and settle in for another episode of Church Drunk!
For Dizzy & Ges, Lent has gotten off to a hacky, sneezy, boozy start, so wallowing in a sense of lost desperation hasn't been much of a stretch! The other bits of Lent, (you know, like praying and giving alms and finding a sense of spiritual discipline), have maybe not gone quite so well. So perhaps it's time to think about what we give and to whom we give it. Join us as Church Drunk Episode 31 tackles one of the three Pillars of Lent - Almsgiving!
Catholic schools are not really all about rosary beads and nuns whacking your knuckles with wooden rulers. They're also about Communion wine! And, uh...Catholic guilt! Join Dizzy and Ges (two veterans of the Catholic school system) for a celebration of Catholic Schools Week and the education you receive at the school of holy knocks.
We all know the story - a little baby born in a manger goes completely off the radar for 30 years, then bursts onto the scene for 3 years of intense world saving. Seems a bit strange that we know so little about those missing years of messianic preparation, though. Right? Join Dizzy & Ges in this episode for a quick recap of what we know, what we don't, and what we wish we knew about the man we call Jesus (even though that wasn't really his name).
We've had an epiphany...and so have you! It's time to celebrate the Wee Three Kings (pretty sure we nailed it on the spelling there) with the Fast of the Magi. Pour a glass of leftover nog and finish the holiday season as Dizzy and Ges explain what gifts they would have brought to the little baby Jesus in the manger.
