As we begin reading the Book of Zephaniah, Fr. Mike draws our attention to the first five accusations Zephaniah declares against the people of Judah; idolatry, lack of prayer, poor leadership, superstitions, and lack of belief in God’s judgment. Today we read Isaiah 28-29, Zephaniah 1-2, and Proverbs 11:9-12.

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! It takes a significant investment to produce the podcast and distribute it free-of-cost to the public. You can make a gift of financial support to help defray these costs and enable us to keep bringing evangelizing digital media to all those searching for God: https://tinyurl.com/yefgfl89 Thank you for your support.

  1. Lord, You are our sure foundation. Lead us away from concupiscence. May we stay close to you by being vigilant in how we treat and use our bodies so that we always see clearly and glorify and honor you. Help us to make decisions wisely and be attracted to righteousness. 🙏🏻

  2. Imagine the wrath of God coming to us, abortion, euthanasia, atheists, violence, drugs, the music, empty churches and so much in everyday life. God have mercy on us🙏🙏🙏


  4. Zephaniah
    A Plea for Repentance
    2:1 – Shameless nation come to your senses
    2:2 – before you are driven away like chaff blown by the wind , before the burning anger of the Lord comes upon you , before the day when he shows his fury .
    29:3 – Turn to the Lord , all you humble people of the land , who obey his commands . Do what is right , and humble yourselves before the Lord . Perhaps you will escape punishment on the day when the Lord shows his anger . 📖🕯

  5. Isaiah
    28:5 A day is coming when the Lord Almighty will be like a glorious crown of flowers for his people who survive .
    28:11 If you won't listen to me, then God will use foreigners speaking strange-sounding language to teach you a lesson.
    28:12 – He offered rest and comfort to you , but you refused to listen.
    28:26 – Farmers know how to do their work because God has taught them.
    28:29 – All this wisdom comes from the Lord Almighty. The plans God makes are wise , and they always succeed.
    29:13 – The Lord said ,
    " These people claim to worship me , but their words are meaningless ,
    and their hearts are somewhere else. Their religion is nothing but human rules and traditions which they have simply memorized.
    29:14 – So I will startle them with one unexpected blow after another. Those who are wise will turn out to be fools, and all their cleverness will be useless.
    29:22 – So the Lord, the God of Israel , who rescued Abraham from trouble, says, " My people , you will not be disgraced any longer , and your faces will no longer be pale with shame .
    29:23 – When you see the children that I will give you , then you will acknowledge that I am the holy God of Israel. You will Honor me and stand in awe of me .
    29:24 – Foolish people will learn to understand, and those who are always grumbling will be glad to be taught . 📖🕯

  6. …the LORD, Heavenly Farmer:), at times prunes and reproves us; at times comforts and consoles us; etc etc… everything He does is meant to make us become the persons He calls us to be, authentic, happy, and holy… thank you, Lord for your Patience…! Let me be receptive… let me let You lead me to Yourself……

  7. No apologies necessary Fr Mike…..we should spend even more time listening and reflecting on God’s word. You and this entire community are blessed. Thank you

  8. Learning from Zephaniah. Carrying Dawn M's mantle, please pray for the holy souls in purgatory.

    Consider listening to Saint Faustina’s Diary in a Year on the Marian Press Podcast. Each day's reading is just about 7 minutes long.  7/23/2022

  9. Thank you, Fr. Mike. There is so much in today's scripture. So many gems especially the effects of alcohol I didn't know that drunkenness was a sin. How we live our lives every day is so so important and we need to put Jesus first. Amen

  10. If no one else understand God cares 🙏🏾❤️‍🩹🙏🏾

    “Even to your old age I am he, even when your hair is gray I will carry you; I have done this, and I will lift you up, I will carry you to safety.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭46:4‬ ‭

  11. Thank You Father Mike for sharing the Bible with us. It is a blessing to know and understand the bible. It helps us to better know our God. Praying for Father Mike and anyone who is in the need of prayers

  12. When a person is so concerned with how other people think about them question how do you KNOW what there thinking? These negative thoughts are of Satan! What your doing is projecting your own negativity on to other’s! God bless. Praise Jesus and Mary always!!!

  13. The Bible is a Catholic book the protestant Bible is an incomplete and corrupted Catholic book for proof watch Steve Ray’s excellent testimony. There’s ONLY ONE CHURCH therefore protestant’s are NOT Christian. To be a Christian one MUST belong to the ONLY CHURCH THERE IS the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by God himself Two thousand year’s ago! 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!!!
