Bishop Daly and the vicars return for a special episode for the feast of the Immaculate Conception, a great feast we celebrate during Advent. But what exactly is the Immaculate Conception and why should we care about it? Marian devotion is close to the heart for Catholics. It is particularly important in the Diocese of Spokane given that Our Lady of Lourdes is our patroness and more than 20 parishes and missions are named in Mary's honor. Listen in for the answers and interesting discussion.

Join Bishop Thomas Daly, Fr. Darrin Connall (Vicar General), Fr. Brian Mee (Vicar for Finance), and Fr. Pat Kerst (Vicar for Priests) as they talk about faith, life, and challenging issues of the day; always keeping in mind the joy our faith inspires. 

Also heard on AM 970 & FM 106.1 Sacred Heart Radio.

Season 2 Ep 16 - USCCB Meeting

Bishop Daly, recently returned from the USCCB, shares about the most recent Bishop Conference general assembly. The disappointment that more was not be done and the hope for continued action on the crisis. 

Beyond the evil of the abuse crisis Bishop and the Vicars take a look at the wider crisis in the church and the world: individualism, the lack of authentic friendship, and the sexualization of so much of our culture. Good friendships among men are joked about as "bromances," many don't know how to live friendships beyond the use they get out of the relationship and how such an individualistic culture is part of the roots of this present crisis in the Church. While there is no golden age for human relationships, is the way we view our fellow human beings part of the problem?  

Join Bishop Thomas Daly, Fr. Darrin Connall (Vicar General), Fr. Brian Mee (Vicar for Finance), and Fr. Pat Kerst (Vicar for Priests) as they talk about faith, life, and challenging issues of the day; always keeping in mind the joy our faith inspires.

Story after story fill the opinion pages about the heated rhetoric present in our modern culture. How it may be fueling violence, the polarization of politics, even threatening the joy of family gatherings. Bishop and Vicars discuss civility and the need to recognize the human dignity the people with whom we engage in debate and discussion. Also addressed is the idea of the sacred, places and situation -- not necessarily religious in nature -- that are set apart as special. 

Join Bishop Thomas Daly, Fr. Darrin Connall (Vicar General), Fr. Brian Mee (Vicar for Finance), and Fr. Pat Kerst (Vicar for Priests) as they talk about faith, life, and challenging issues of the day; always keeping in mind the joy our faith inspires.

During the vicars' summer break, Bishop Daly is inviting guests on the show to discuss important matters in the life of the church. This episode Bishop Daly, with the help of guest co-host Hilary Hammett, sits down again with an old friend from San Jose, Father Gary Thomas.

Fr. Thomas is a priest of the diocese of San Jose, as well as the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose. He consults with other dioceses on the topic of exorcism and received his training as an exorcist in Rome. While in Rome studying Fr. Thomas met a journalist, Matt Baglio, who asked Fr. Thomas if he could write a book about his training as an exorcist. That book, The Rite: Making of a Modern Exorcist, was later adapted into a movie, The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins.

Fr. Thomas also appeared on two episodes of the Bishop and the Vicars in the summer of 2017 to speak about exorcism and its role in the church.
