    Fr. James, from a Redemptorist who is “supposed” to
    be good preachers you push the envelope in a wonderful
    way, and I like your cooking show too. Invite me sometime

    I am so grateful for your insightful reflections on the USCCB daily readings site. You have a way of pointing out important biblical connections to everyday life, in a way that’s so easy to listen to, and really strikes home. I often find myself rewinding to hear again the way you interweave a particular situation to the Word. You make it so relatable. Thanks very much for all you do!

    Fr. Vlaun is so special. He wears many hats but I find him every Monday morning with his brief USCCB homily. He’s a true Godsend, particularly when COVID derailed church attendance for so many. Many thanks for all he does to serve our heavenly father.

    Hey msgr Jim
    My wife and I Love your show, you’re bringing our faith together thru food. I know it worked for Italians because I lived it.
    Ironically I had a Catholic education with the Christian brothers. None of them cooked like you. It was in fact a military academy so the food fit the venue. I owe a lot to the brothers however they could do some serious damage to a bottle of wine. I mean that in a funny way, not to be disparaging.
