I loved this talk. I listened to all of them at once (at Epiphany) but learned so much and was called yet again to reflect on myself and if I am truly preparing myself as best I can for the 2nd Coming for Christ. I loved the Christmas homily too which really made me think about the Nativity story not just as 'Oh the Christmas story of Christ's birth' but this is what this story shows of God's wonder and mystery!

Customer Comments


"Fr. Larry does not disappoint with his insights on the season of Christmas!" Nancy - Warroad, MN
"Fr. Richards challenged me to enter into the Christmas story with my eyes opened ... not just be celebrating Jesus' birth, but by participating in his life." Maureen - Spencer, NY
"A must listen ... Fr. Richards gives Christmas it's true meaning!" "Mickey - Philadelphia, PA
Honest and really made me think more about the true meaning behind Christmas. Robert - Johannesburg
I like how the first speaker talked about engaging all the senses when praying the rosary, imagining the Christ child in your arms, and letting us know through, the symbol of the baby Jesus, that God is utterly powerless to do us any harm. I especially liked the bonus segment of Dr. Scott Hahn's talk at the end of the mp3, covering the visits of the shepherds and the Magi when Jesus was born -- who these people really were, how they were regarded by Jewish society, and what might have more realistically happened back then. I found it exciting, causing me want to buy his entire lecture, and explore your website further. Francesca - Stone Ridge, NY
Touched on somethings I haven't heard before as well as a more intimate vision of prayer, especially the rosary, but in general as well. Wayne - Bellaire, TX
I loved how Father Richards taught us to visualize the scenes of the rosary - the angel telling Mary, the uncontainable God becoming contained as a tiny cell within Mary's womb, after Mary's permission holding the God-child in our arms... I have benefited from all of Fr. Richards' talks. He is a powerful communicator, teacher. Ginger - Springfield, VA
I never linked holding the Baby Jesus with holding the Holy Eucharist before- how incredible! Peter - Fort Collins, CO
The part about praying the Joyful Mysteries. Denise - Colorado Springs, CO
