Fr. Mike zeroes in on Isaiah 5-6 today. He emphasizes the literary masterpiece of the parable of the vineyard in Isaiah 5 and how it represents the story of Israel. He also shows us how Isaiah 6 is full of rich symbolism that points to the sacred realities of the Mass. We are reminded that God is truly holy and deserving of our praise. Today’s readings are Isaiah 5-6, Tobit 5-6, and Proverbs 10:1-4.

We hear every day from our community how The Bible in a Year helps to capture hearts and souls for Christ. While we’re happy to make it free to our audience, it’s not free to create!

  1. Lord, You are the vine and we are the branches. Apart from you we can bear no fruit. We try to do our lives apart from you too often, Lord. Bring us back to you! We need to be nourished by you, our source of life. Help us to never take for granted being in your holy presence. Transform and fill us when we receive the flame of your presence on our lips at communion, as you did with Isaiah. Show us how to live in peace, glorifying you with our lives. 💕🙏🏻

  2. Its 2002, and its the Fifteenth week in ordinary time. On Monday we read Isaiah 1. Then on Tuesday we read Isaiah 7. Why did we skip Isaiah 5? Thank you, Fr. Mike, for sharing the importance and centrality of Isaiah 5.

  3. That was wonderful. I'm going to Mass in a couple of hours and I will have this in my heart, in my mind and on my lips. Thank you. Praying for you and everyone here. God bless🙏❤️🙏

  4. I’m from Town I’m good at pointing out the 🤡 lol 😂 God always been around Satan is trying to drag me to the ground… 💯🙏💯🙏💯🙏💪🩸🇺🇸🌹😂 I won’t let him drag me down

  5. Wow! Amazing. It's becoming clearer and clearer how incredibly blessed we are to live on Earth in a time post-Christ. Praying for Father Mike and for everyone listening to this podcast.

  6. Thank you again Father Mike.

    Please join me in praying for Souls in Purgatory. I pray my message is reaching people.

    Consider listening to Saint Faustina’s Diary in a Year with Father Roesch. It is on the Mariam Press Podcast and on YouTube.

    I pray for all who are reading this.

  7. Thank You Father Mike for sharing the Bible with all of us. It is a true blessing to be able tot understand the word of our Lord. It helps us to grow closer to our God. Praying for Father Mike and anyone else who is in need of prayers

  8. It's interesting, that the name Raphael means God heals (or something to that effect, God's healing maybe, I'd have to check), and of course what the Archangel Raphael is doing hear is healing these people, through marriage. I think there's something to that, the broken are healed trough union.

  9. There’s NO salvation outside the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by God himself Two thousand year’s ago this means protestant’s are NOT Christian! Watch Don’t call protestant’s Christian. Then The Papacy can NOT be destroyed. Then the warning or illumination of conscience by Christine Watkins. God bless. Praise Jesus and Mary always!!!

  10. I am just extremely happy to have reached more than the half mark of reading the whole Bible. I shall forever be grateful to you, Father Mike. Often I read the Bible and misinterpret what it says. You are the shepherd who guides me, a lost lamb. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I keep praying 🙏 for your continued physical, mental and spiritual health.

  11. This was awesome today.
    I love when the priest prays before reading the Epistle to cleanse his heart and lips as he did the prophet Isaiah (TLM). I also love the Sanctus, and this really re-affirms my question, what are we doing taking the Eucharist in our hands???

  12. I REALLY need someone's help. In this anti-children world we live in today, why has the Church omitted Tobias 6:17-22 as it was written in the Douay Rheims Bible that the Church had used for centuries before these newer, modern bibles? This isn't literalistic and contextual stuff, rather things have been completely removed. Please help! Thanks.

  13. Shortly before starting BIAY I purchased a new Bible, English Standard Version published by the Augustine Institute. "Approved by the Vatican, this easy-to-read Catholic Edition of the English Standard Version is the most precise and up-to-date translation available." It's not been a problems although a few differences have surfaced here and there. However, today there was such a difference between what Father MIke read and my Bible that at first I thought I was reading the wrong chapter! (The message is the same.) What accounts for these changes? Also my pre Vatican II experience with the Bible is like some folks mentioned on Facebook: Don't try to read it alone because you might get the wrong idea. I remember when the religious ed director talked about starting a Bible study in the late 70's and I said that really appealed to me and "I was interested in doing something like the Protestants." I've been discovering the Bible in various ways and studies since then but never completed my goal of reading through all of it. This experience has been incredible!!! So grateful to be making up some lost time. I have been taking notes on the commentary since Day One. One thing I hope they will help with also is one day making Lectio Divina part of daily prayer. What a wonderful hidden treasure that too had been hidden.

  14. Praying for all who against their will have been separated from loved ones. Lord, hear our prayer. Thank you, Fr. Mike, and all who are praying!
