Fresh "Marie E" from Bloomberg Surveillance
"The professor or academia speaking in one way where you permit violent protests where students are unable to go to class because there's boycotts or there's pressure or other things. It's not a culture of free speech. Mark Rowan of Apollo joining us now. Bloomberg's Anne -Marie AMH down in Washington, DC. Marie, I have to say, for me, for many people watching that play out yesterday wasn't just stunning. It was shocking. Why are they unable to answer such simple, basic questions? Well, it's very uncomfortable for those university presidents and also those watching. I mean, John, let me just tell you what Claudine Gay had to say. She was the Harvard president who was also The individuals that had a number of heated exchanges with Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, especially since Miss Stefanik had gone to Harvard. She says, We do not sanction individuals for their political views or their speech when that speech crosses into conduct that violates our behavior based policy, bullying, harassment and intimidation. We take action. So you see these university presidents really trying to walk a line of making sure that they remain places of free speech, but obviously they don't want to see bullying and harassment. Now, you Jonathan, and I both know they have gotten such fierce criticism from donors that are saying that they have not come out aggressive enough ahead of all of this to make sure that it could be a safe space for all students and also at the same time be able to make sure they are upholding free free speech. And Maria, I got to say, Mark Rowan yesterday was pretty brilliant on this point. And whether you agree or disagree, the point that there is something deeper that's been going on for a longer period of time where dissent has been drowned out and most people in certain universities do tend to agree and that a lot of these universities do take a stand on certain moral issues and get everybody in line as sort of one voice rather than letting each person have a different view. How much is that a focus in Washington DC as part of why there has been such divisiveness, privatization of the political parties? Well, it was a huge focus yesterday for Republican congressmen and women because they actually also wanted these university professors to talk about more conservative professors. And could they name some or have data and statistics about conservative professors within their faculty? college And these university professors couldn't. So to Mark Rowan's the point, state? What he was talking about is the fact that potentially they have become too liberal and that they've become universities that are just allowed or preferred speech, not free speech. That is something we've heard him say to you guys yesterday and we've heard him say time and time again, which is why you're seeing some of this uproar. Or yesterday, we also spoke to a former university president of California, and what he was talking about is underlying culture and how some universities are getting it right when it comes to education about anti -Semitism, about Islamophobia, and others just aren't getting it right. And I have to say within Washington, D .C., besides this hearing, the Biden administration, the president, he's put out statements about Shortly this. after, we've seen a lot of these incidents take place on university campuses, but also the Department of Education is actually having an investigation, a probe into Harvard and other events. And talk to me about how this might play out on the debate stage a little bit later. Well, this is going to be easy for those four individuals on the debate stage to really want to attack what they see progressive leaning liberal universities and also just say that the country, their mind is moving in the wrong direction, potentially using this issue to make that point. We should also note about the debate stage tonight. It is smaller, We right? have four contenders now. But the real show was last night. The leader of the Republican nomination, former President Donald Trump, was on television one on one with Sean Hannity for 60 minutes. And then these four are going to have to share the spotlight. Let's talk about what the current president had to say about next year's race. Anne -Marie, telling donors that if the former president wasn't in the race, he probably wouldn't be running himself. We joked about this a little bit earlier. It was a cleanup on our 2024. Can you talk to us about that cleanup? What happens if the former president isn't the guy isn't the candidate for the Republicans? Well, then he came out to a reporter who wanted to clarify this comment when he made his way back to the White House from Boston, where he's attending three fundraisers that, of course, to make sure that he's not dropping out. If you talk to people, hear from people in the administration, they will say that, of course, the president feels this way. This was his whole reason for joining for running in the first place. He didn't want he the felt country was going in a dangerous direction under the former president and wanted to make sure there was someone there who could beat Donald Trump. He didn't want to see another four years of Donald Trump. And that was, you know, his impetus for getting involved in the first place. Now, it's a second time running and he's running against that former individual. And he said the quiet part out loud, which was I'm not sure I'd be doing this basically if it wasn't Donald Trump running against me. And I think the issue a lot of Democrats are going to have is Does that really rally the base of your Democratic progress, the progressive wing of your party to come out and want to vote for you? Is that an inspiring message, especially when poll after poll continues to show that they think this president is just too old to run again. So let's talk about the other one. said You that the main event was last night with Sean Hannity interviewing the former President Donald Trump. And he kept asking a friend of Donald Trump's. He kept asking him just to clarify that he was not going to be a dictator. He said, He said, you are promising America tonight that you would never abuse power as retribution against anybody. Donald Trump said, except for day one. And he said that again, once more. What do you make of this? What's the sort consequence of some of his discussion? Well, Sean Hannity was, I think, trying to help him and explain, well, sir, what you're saying is that's not being a dictator. That's going back to your former policies, because then Trump explained wants what he to do on day one, which is close the U .S. southern border and drill, drill, drill, AKA unlock U .S.'s energy resources. We should remind everyone that the U .S. is the biggest energy producer in the world right now. So I'm not sure that under former President Trump, much how more even we'll get, but that's where the facts are. But Trump was just trying to, I think, play on some of the words that the Democrats tried to paint him. But it's obviously concerning because he has said in the past that this will be retribution. We'll go after everyone that's gone up against him. It's an going to interesting be year, to say the least, especially given the fact that he faces charges. I find the energy point just absolutely hilarious. So the Republicans get to sit there and say, let's drill more. And everyone in the White House is too scared to come out and say we are a 13 million barrels a day, Bramo. They just can't say it. This is going to be a really interesting talking point in debate when you do get two nominees, because if one person's going to say drill, baby, drill, and Biden's going to say, we're not doing that. We're not, we're not, we're not doing that. That's not happening. If that was happening, we would have record production, which is what we're already having. AMH, thank you. It's hear good to from hear you. Always is. Anne -Marie in Washington, DC, 13 .2 million barrels a day in America. And the White House is just like tumbleweed. It's just, we can't talk about that. It's not a talking point for next year. And they're really playing it down. They're talking about the energy transition, how important it really is to invest in other things. And yet around the margins, you kind of get the sense. All right, guys, come on, keep bumping a little bit more to offset anything, any disruption from whether it's Russia or the Middle East.

A highlight from LST9 The Passion of St. Therese The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Discerning Hearts Podcast
"The asserting hearts .com in cooperation with the oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of St. Therese of the suit with Father Timothy Gallagher Father Gallagher is a member of the oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life The letters of St. Therese of the suit with Father Timothy Gallagher, I'm your host Chris McGregor So this is May 9th of her final year she dies September 30th The symptoms are not yet at their worst. It's tuberculosis. It was tuberculosis that would take her life We've mentioned earlier from a very early age Therese, she had bronchitis every winter and she had whooping cough very often For several years the sisters had already noticed that her voice would get hoarse in the morning and in the evening Her cousin Marie who was the daughter of the pharmacist and whose letters are very helpful because she has a bit of the Doctor's eye and she describes more clearly than any of the others the symptoms Therese is undergoing as she's writing to family members and others They were worried. They could see that something was not right and a year earlier on Holy Thursday and Good Friday. She has that coughing up of blood Which almost incredibly was not taken as seriously as it should have been Now Therese herself to be fair in all of this Therese herself is in part if we can say this of a saint to blame because She minimized the symptoms she hid them as long as she could in fact when she had that bleeding She never said anything to her sister Pauline who only found out much later because she didn't want them worrying about herself and She struggled to keep up with the discipline and the the daily or Arrium and so forth of the monastery Carry out her tasks even at times just even to walk up the steps. She would almost have to stop at each step She would go through the day with fever and chills all of this has been going on but The symptoms will get to their worst in August where she has a month of excruciating pain But the tuberculosis is progressive and what it's doing is it's eating up the lungs and it's progressively getting harder and harder for her to breathe So a book by this Bishop whom I mentioned as perhaps the primary scholar of Therese He's not a dry academic he loves her and he writes well about her and with great knowledge This book is entitled the passion of Therese of this year, and it's by Bishop Guy Gaucher G -a -u -c -h -e -r And in one chapter in this book, he describes the symptoms that Therese undergoes with the tuberculosis So he entitles this section here from Therese words. I didn't expect to suffer like this. Oh Some of the remedies that were done and Therese bore them She knew they were going to be useless She's like her mother in this. Zelie never had much faith in the remedies The doctors would offer. Of course medicine was not at its present level at that time I'll only mention one of them which is just kind of hard for us to imagine It was called pointe de feu points of fire and what would happen was they thought to increase circulation to help the body a Needle would be heated to where it was red -hot and it would be applied to the skin of the person and Therese had this done several times up to 500 applications of these needles like this Now you can imagine the condition in which she would return to her her room or her infirmary the infirmary She bore all of these things, you know gives a whole new meaning to her expression about thousand little pinpricks. Oh My goodness, is that a possibility of something that I mean in that experience, I mean it gives it a whole new dimension, doesn't it? Well, it's really hard for us to imagine You know the kinds of things that end and diet foods that were just very difficult for her to eat and so forth You know it was and some other things I won't get into all the details But part of her martyrdom is really the only word for it Was the medical attention such as it was that she was given because she was also left without medical help At times when she desperately needed it and also morphine was available to sedate pain But the superior never allowed it now to be fair to the superior when she later herself She died of cancer a very painful death. She would not use it herself It was just considered something that nuns would not use, you know So it was not as though she was simply being cruel to Torres and although in effect it meant that Torres bore excruciating pain with no mitigation at all in these last months of her life But it was not necessarily out of bad will There were also other things involved There was a doctor who was the regular doctor for the Carmel and who was a friend of the superior and good man One of his sons was a priest But when he was away at times a family doctor that this actually was the husband that her cousin Jean married Could have come and helped but the superior just really didn't didn't want that So especially during that month of August when she went through the worst of her pain She had no medical attention during that time. Can I ask you this? I mean What would those sisters going through her blood sister is going through watching this? With this superior that didn't seem to be responsive. I It was terrible. In fact Surreptitiously on a few occasions they mixed a little morphine into drinks and things they did the best they could To try to help her in that situation. This was Torres of the child Jesus and of the holy face very much It's her passion. That's the title of this book that we're quoting So I'm just going to list the symptoms now these symptoms as I'm as I'm saying We're not yet at this stage in May when the letter that we're reading was written But they indicate throughout this time to res continued to respond to letters there was a seminarian Maurice Belair and The very nice book has been written on this by Bishop Patrick Ahern. That's Maurice resin Maurice the story of a love a seminarian who was really struggling Wrote to the Carmel asked if a sister could pray for him the prioress asked her as to do this So in this last year and a half or so of her life You have this handful of letters that he writes And then her response. It's always the same he respites rights discouraged by his failures He writes back to encourage him. God is calling you to be a saint. I know it you can do it But especially for this I'll just quote this one instance because his need was so great in the midst of these kinds of pains And with a trembling hand with the pencil Torres would write sometimes even lengthy responses to these people So that's when you read them on a page. It looks like they're nice Sedate letters that that was not the case All right to describe the symptoms of the tuberculosis So the bishop says fever and profuse sweating for six months So that does include this may that we're looking at Torres suffered from a fever which fluctuated Sometimes her back was burning like fire Sometimes she was perspiring so much. She became dehydrated Digestive troubles Torres suffered frequently from nausea often losing her meals even before she became bedridden The doctor prescribed milk for her. She had never liked it. She could not digest it She continued to take it forced it down knowing what would happen Respiratory troubles as the tuberculosis spread through the lungs Torres suffered pains first in her right shoulder and arms then in her left side the continual cough emaciation Strikingly when you look at the photos of Torres and this is typical from what I've read about this her face looks unchanged Her face looks healthy and all the photos that you see and in fact This was one reason why many of the sisters didn't really believe she was very ill to look at her She seemed fine So she didn't get a lot of sympathy from many in the Carmel as as she went through this But underneath the habit she was becoming a skeleton Normally the face of a person suffering from tuberculosis takes on certain characteristics, but Torres face remained almost the same Her voluminous Carmelite habit hid her thin thinness and her face was full Only her thin hands betrayed her That's all you could see through the habit and gave the lie to the healthy look and the emaciation itself caused various afflictions weakness powerlessness and distress People suffering from tuberculosis like this obviously would have deep emotional discouragement and depression and pain They did the prodigious remedies customary at the time but ridiculous today do anything to alleviate all this suffering Basically the answer to that is no that they really didn't do much Right, that's and of course add to this that Torres is in the heart of the spiritual darkness at this point Which is centered on? This sense powerful in her that heaven is not real that when we die everything is over and She is making more acts of faith as she'll say than ever in her life at this point She writes these lovely poems about eternal life the sisters comment on it and she says I am writing about what I wish to believe So she is this is a martyrdom, you know This is a passion that Torres is going through and that's the context of this letter that she's writing So this is the second Person this case already ordained a priest that she was asked to accompany spiritually and it was a father Adolph Rulong Who was destined for the missions in China where he actually spent 13 years? He stopped by the Carmel at one point can't say that he and Torres actually saw each other because the grill was in between Although they tried to work it so that Torres was the last one.

A highlight from LST8 Casting Flowers The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Podcast
"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual of exercises Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the Venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. This next letter brings us to just about one year before Therese's death, so she's 23 at this point, and it's a letter to Sister Maria of Saint Joseph, who is 38 years old at this point. Let's read a description of Sister Maria of Saint Joseph. She was a very difficult sister. She had a very difficult childhood. There was a goodness in her, but there was also a violent temper, mood swings, and so forth. And because of that, the sisters tended to avoid her. So this is from Marie, Therese's sister, Marie's deposition in the cause of canonization where she describes Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. The sister was subject to the blackest moods and did scarcely any work. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen. Therese had volunteered. No one else wanted to approach the sister, and Therese's heart always went out to the difficult people, to the suffering people. You know, Therese is the patron of the missions, and so her gaze reaches out to those who are very distant from her, wanting to bring them close to Christ. But her gaze also fell on those who were the nearest to her, and she saw the needs, and she would approach them with incredible insensitivity. The follow happens. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen, which she had given her to repair. And because Sister Therese had not been able to complete her task, the sister reproached her severely instead of thanking her for what she had done in spite of being so ill. So this is Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. Sister Therese took the reproaches as if they were so much praise. This poor unfortunate sister became the object of Sister Therese's tenderest compassion. One day when I had confided to her how much trouble that sister gave me, the servant of God, Therese, said, ah, if you only knew how necessary it is to forgive her, how much she is to be pitied. It is not her fault she is so poorly gifted. She is like an old clock that has to be rewound every quarter of an hour, just so emotionally needy. Yes, it is as bad as that. Well, wouldn't you have pity on it? Oh, how necessary it is to practice charity toward one's neighbor. And Therese also recognized and appreciated the good qualities that Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had, and they're listed here, tenderness, good memory, fine singing voice. And it pained Therese to see Sister Marie of Saint Joseph ostracized by the rest of the community. And so she resolved to move closer to her. I will say that eventually the mental, emotional mood swings and temper and so forth of Sister Marie of Saint Joseph were diagnosed by a doctor as a form of mental disability that was just incompatible with religious life. And so when she was 51, she was obliged to leave the convent. She lived for another 26 years before her death. And she always remembered Therese with fondness, always followed the cause of canonization, stayed in contact with the Carmel. Well, what Therese did, I think we'd have to say pretty heroically, was she volunteered to help Sister Marie of Saint Joseph in the linen room, which was where she worked alone because no one, they were afraid of her. They didn't want to be the subject of her violent temper and the speech and all that would go with it. And we have a series of the just brief notes that Therese writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph, sort of childlike, childish almost language. And Therese really takes the role of a mother concerned for Sister Marie. Is she sleeping well? Striving to take that combative spirit which Sister Marie of Saint Joseph has and to move that towards spiritual combat to help her try to offer her struggles and so forth for the good of souls, for the good of the Church. So this is one of these letters that she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. And you know, this allows us to highlight one of these qualities of Therese. I think we'll return to this later on. When there were suffering difficult people around her, people that everybody else tended to avoid, she was the one who would take the initiative to approach them. I mentioned they had these recreation times twice a day when they could sit together and just freely converse. It was her practice, the others noted it, and you see it in the cause of canonization, to choose to sit next to the ones that nobody else wanted to sit next to. So much so that one of these sisters convinced that Therese was really a great friend, that they were great friends. Therese did this so naturally, so easily, without any sign of struggle. Well, without any sign of struggle, she's the one of whom Therese said, sometimes the only thing I can do is just leave her because it's just too difficult for me, and then she'd come back when she was more able again. So she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph, I am delighted with the little child. Now this is one of these letters where Therese uses the third person and metaphor. If we notice, for example, when she wrote to her childhood playmate Celine, there's none of that kind of language. It's very direct. It's the kind of language her mother would have written. So Therese, depending on the recipient, will adopt a different style of writing, and here it's that third person and metaphor. I am delighted with the little child, which is to say, I'm really happy with what I've seen in you. And the one who carries her in his arms is still more delighted than I. The Lord just loves what he's seen in you. Ah, how beautiful is the little child's vocation. Who else was speaking to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph like this? She was pretty universally simply avoided, and here is this fellow sister just saying, I'm so delighted to see the goodness in you, and Jesus sees it more than I. It is not one mission that she must evangelize, but all missions, and that is offer your struggles and sufferings for the missions for the apostolate of the Church. How will she do this? So how are you, Sister, with your personal struggles in the laundry room, going to offer something for the far -flung missionary work of the Church? And she answers, how will she do this? By loving, by sleeping, because Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had struggles with that, and Therese will often gently hope and encourage her to get the sleep that she needs. And then this next is capitalized, by throwing flowers to Jesus when he is asleep. Now, there's something very profound behind this, this throwing flowers in the Franca, jeté de fleur, which is a phrase that Therese uses often. And let's just take a moment to look at her, describe what she means by this in the story of a soul, because this is a very profound piece of her little way. So the image is, well, Therese did this as a child. They would, on the Corpus Christi procession, she and the other little girls, they'd be dressed in like their white dresses, and they'd be given flowers, and they would cast these flowers into the air along the road before the priest would come by with the Blessed Sacrament. Therese loved flowers. If you read her letters, flowers come back all the time in her writing. One of her joys was that she thought, in entering Carmel, that she was really giving up any contact with flowers, the flowers that she would go with her father and go walking out in the fields, and he'd be fishing, she'd be picking flowers as a little girl. And then to her delight found that people were constantly making gifts of flowers to the Carmel so that flowers were an abundant presence in her life. Well, she says, the little child, meaning herself, will strew flowers. She will perfume the royal throne with their sweet scents, and she will sing in her silvery tones the canticle of love. Now, what she's referring to here is her own sense of her weakness and her imperfections. Here are the great saints. Think of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross and Francis of Assisi. As she'll say elsewhere, these are the mountain tops, and she sees herself just as a little grain of sand. Her own life is so small. She sees her weakness and her struggles. Well, what can I do then? Well, the little child will throw flowers, will cast flowers upon the throne of the Lord Jesus. So there you get just an image or just a brief perspective on this kind of flowery metaphorical language that Teresa uses. It's always necessary to see what she's saying through that. The language is flowery. It can be sentimental. It can be childish at times, but the reality is rock, is solid, is deep, is rich. So now she explains she's speaking to Jesus. This is in the manuscript B, the second part of the story of the soul. It's now chapter nine. Yes, my beloved, this is how my life will be consumed. I have no other means of proving my love for you other than that of strewing flowers. All right, what does that mean? That is not allowing one little sacrifice to escape, not one look, one word, profiting by all the smallest things and doing them through love. Now, we're right at the heart of her little way here. I can't do great things for you. I'm not in the missions. I'm not being martyred. I haven't written great scholarly works, preached before multitudes. I'm just a humble little 24 -year -old woman living with 20 other women in a caramel that very few people even know of, working in the linen room, preparing meals, helping out in the sacristy, decorating as best I can, sacred objects, painting them. I can't do great things for you, but what I can do is to cast flowers. Now, as I've said so often in these conversations, it doesn't take much contact with Therese to touch the heroic, and it's right here. That is, by not allowing one sacrifice to escape. And her sisters were witness to this, that she, every opportunity that she could find, to go out of her way to help someone, to give up something that someone else wanted, to smile at the last person that she wanted to smile to, and so forth. She took advantage of all of these little occasions. The little way is only little in that the things that we do are ordinary, but it is not little in love, and not little in fruitfulness. It's heroic, actually, in these. What if we could even dream of living like that in our daily life at home or at work or in the parish or in the community, not allowing one little sacrifice to escape? I have a task to do. Here's a person who approaches me with a little sinking of my heart. He or she is going to want some time. What if we didn't allow one even smallest sacrifice to escape? Not one look that could encourage another person.

Thanks and God bless. A teaching of Saint Paul from his first letter to the Corinthians. Brothers and sisters, strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts, but I will show you a still more excellent way. If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge, if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient. Love is kind. It is not jealous. Love is not pompous. It is not inflated. It is not rude. It does not seek its own interests. It is not quick tempered. It does not brood over injury. It does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing. If tongues, they will cease. If knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesize partially. But when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child. When I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present, we see indistinctly as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present, I know partially. Then I shall know fully as I am fully known. So faith, hope, and love remain, these three. But the greatest of these is love. We now return to the letters of Saint Therese of the Sioux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher, I just want to say how grateful I am. And I'm sure many people out there for your beautiful stewardship of the gifts of these letters that we have. And breaking it open for all of us. Just giving this glimpse into the heart of the soul and the experience of this beautiful family. And to get to know them in this particular way has just been an extraordinary experience. I hope this has been a fruitful time for you as well. Well, in a way I couldn't have foreseen, putting all of this into words has made it come alive in its own way for me. And I found it quite moving at times. It's poignant to get in touch with this life, with its human tragedy and its incredible spiritual richness. And just the beauty of who Therese is. It's said of some people that you can't spend time with them without becoming yourself better. And that's so eminently true of Therese. So it's a wonderful thing to break open some of these primary sources the way we have. And I hope it helps just to awaken interest. And above all to find courage and hope and strength through Therese. It's so much more than the experience of a small little prayer card that we might have gotten with a little prayer on the back. But then again, those small little prayer cards are like keys, aren't they? That can open a door. I think that's the way it was for my grandmother. She had little prayer cards of Therese and she would talk about praying to Saint Teresa, the little flower. And yet she had a wonderful relationship with her. I never really understood it until now. And I can't help but think that my grandmother encountering her now in this wonderful cloud of witnesses, that the conversation she might have with that little one and getting to know the rest of the family. And that's something that's available for all of us. When her centenary came around, the centenary of her birth, we've mentioned earlier the project of the complete critical publication of all of her writings. With that available in the original French, these writings have been translated into other languages so that we're really blessed now since the 1970s to have excellent resources that were not available to us before then. And we've just plumbed a little bit of what's found in there. So we have an access to her that is new in our own time and is a great gift. It's worth plunging into that sea, I would say. I know for me now, when I pray with Saint Therese, I can't help but think of Sully and Louis and her beautiful sisters, Marie, Pauline, Selene, Leonie. Now it's even wonderful. We've been invited into their family, haven't we? Yes, we have. Books are constantly being written on Therese and you can see why. There's so much to explore and there are excellent books now also about those family relationships. But I think what we've essentially done is through immersion in the primary sources, we've seen the real life situation in which the teachings are incarnate. Literally, they take on flesh in that sense and they become understandable, they make so much sense. And they're all the more telling because her situation, her family life and so on in so many ways is something to which we can relate to. We've seen the witnesses say this, that people in the world, this isn't for people alone in the convent, it's for everyone because it's so daily. Well, I guess in closing then, Father Gallagher, could you offer for us all a prayer to the Little Flower? St. Therese, we bless you for the gift that God gave to the Church through you. We bless you that we have known you in our lives, that you have been a source of grace for us and we ask that that grace increase and deepen. You said that you wanted to spend your heaven doing good on earth and we ask that you make us, in some real measure, the recipients of that good. With all that it means for you, send a shower of roses upon us. Walk with us, accompany us, be our sister until one day we join with you in eternity. Amen. Amen. Thank you, Father Gallagher.

A highlight from LST7 The Personality of St. Therese The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Discerning Hearts Podcast
"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. This is now Bishop Guy Gaucher. Anything that he's written is well worth reading. He is just a very very fine scholar of Therese. The bishop goes on, we have here an inexhaustible source of study. She whom we customarily call Saint Therese of the Virgin Mary was able to say at the moment of her death that the foundation of her whole piety was nourished on the text of Isaiah chapter 53 concerning the suffering servant. When we mutilate her name we mutilate her message to say nothing of her entire life and so when you give her the name that she wanted and keep in that name Therese of the Child Jesus of the Holy Face and our whole conception of Therese changes and the suffering that's a thread through everything that we're speaking about here is understood. Wow. Mutilate her name. I won't be doing that anymore. Yes, that said rather strongly, isn't it? Wow, it really is. It's so true. We don't have to over exaggerate that either. To speak of Therese of the Child Jesus captures a real deep truth about who she is and I don't think we need always to feel literally obliged to give the entirety of the name. But to recognize that there is another piece in the name and it is a foundational even the central piece helps us keep Therese in perspective. The childlike element without the suffering would risk remaining sentimental. When you put the two together as they were so profoundly put together in Therese anything sentimental disappears. I don't mean the warmth, the spontaneity, the delight, the joy, all of that which goes with a childlike spirit you know and Jesus says that to enter the kingdom we need to be like children. All of that remains but it is rooted in a very profoundly lived way of the cross you know that that gives it depth and maturity. If we rely on the testimony of Mother Agnes, that's her sister Pauline, given at the beatification process we have good reason to call her sister Therese of the Holy Face. Mother Agnes stated, Devotion to the Holy Face was the servant of God's, she was not yet venerable at this point, was the servant of God's special attraction, devotion to the Holy Face. As tender as was her devotion to the Child Jesus it cannot be compared to her devotion to the Holy Face. So all of that underlies what we've seen. I cannot tell you all I would like. My soul is powerless. If only I could but no this is not in my power. Why be sad? Do you not always think what I am thinking? I can't share everything with you the way I would wish to but don't let that be a sadness. I know that you already know everything in my heart. When they were younger girls together there was a time when they would go up in the call it the attic room of their home at Les Buissonné and together they would look out the window. The home was on a raised kind of a hill and so there was a broad panorama before them of the city and then off into the distance and they would sit there for hours just speaking about spiritual things and that was probably the moment when they were closest together. Therese compares those conversations to that conversation that Augustine has with his mother, remember at Ostia, before their death when time just disappears and they even touch eternity in some way as they speak. They were so deeply united in this at that time. She says I know that you know everything I'm thinking. Thus all I do not tell you you divine you understand. Jesus makes you feel it in your heart. Has he not moreover set up his abode there to console himself for the crimes of sinners? Yes it is there in the intimate retreat of the soul that he instructs us together and one day he will show us the day which will no longer have any setting. Happy feast. How sweet it will be one day for your Therese to wish it to you in heaven. As I said that perspective is is always there in Therese. This next is a brief selection from a description of Therese written by her novice mistress who was a Sister Marie of the Angels and Therese at this point is 20 years old and it's kind of classic you'll find it quoted often in writing on Therese. Sister Therese of the child Jesus 20 years old novice and jewel of the Carmel. It's dear Benjamin. Office of painting. So that's what Therese is doing at this time. She would decorate stoles or they had her do different things in the chapel and so on. Therese never had any training in painting. At one point her sister Selene who was the most gifted in this of all the sisters her Pauline also painted and wrote poetry and did some plays and things but Selene was the best of them as a painter and the first images of Therese really all come from paintings of Selene that Selene did of her. At one point she did a painting of Our Lady and she brought it to their father to see and it's really pretty remarkable for somebody that age and with the limited training that she'd had and he was so impressed by it that he proposed to Selene that she go to Paris and take lessons from an accomplished artist in painting and Selene said no to that because she already had it in mind that she wanted to enter the Carmel but as a sideline on that while this conversation was going on their father turned to Therese and said would you also like instruction in painting which Therese would have wanted in the worst way. You know for somebody who had no training in painting other than a certain amount that Selene showed her she does pretty well. I mean she's not a great painter but with training probably could have become as good as Selene perhaps. That's just a guess but certainly better than she was and she would have given anything for it. Her sister Marie I mentioned earlier could be blunt and sometimes didn't always see things well and she just spoke up quickly before Therese could even answer and just said no she doesn't have the same talent as Selene it would just be a waste of time and resources to do that and Therese didn't say anything and she just bore it you know she didn't speak up for herself so she never had the training in the painting that Selene had and that was Therese. She simply bore it but nonetheless at this point she is painting in the Carmel. She never had tasks which would involve heavy physical expenditures of energy you know heavy lifting and those kinds of things she just wouldn't have had the health for that sort of thing. She did help with the haying and those kinds of things. Office of painting in which she excels without having had other lessons than those of seeing our Reverend Mother her dear sister at work so Pauline actually. Tall Therese was I've seen five three five four but she was the tallest of the sisters. Tall and strong with the appearance of a child a tone of voice and expression hiding within her a wisdom of perfection a perspicacity of a 50 year old. In fact some of the sisters said that if it weren't for her age they would have willingly seen her as prioress of the Carmel just in terms of her maturity. Also the fact that she was one of a group of four sisters which was divisive within the community that was not an easy thing for the remainder of the community to have this block of family members like this. Soul always calm and in perfect possession of itself in all things and with everybody. Little innocent thing to whom one would give God without confession to receive communion there'd be no need for confession. But one whose head is full of mischief to play on anyone she pleases and these are the lines which are all often quoted mystic comic everything she can make you weep with devotion and just as easily split your sides with laughter during our recreations. After a lunch and supper there was a time when they would break silence and they would just sit together in the common space and they might be sewing or doing different things but in free conversation together. And they would say when Therese would not be there they'd say we are not going to laugh today. You know she was a mimic she could split people's sides with laughter with her imitations of people. For example she imitated their guide on that pilgrimage in Italy. Different things like that always kindly you know they always immediately say never in a but she could do this so well that she'd have them all just splitting their sides with laughter puns too. We lose these in English but in some of her sayings she'll respond lightning quick to something with a pun that once you uncover it and see what she's saying you just laugh you know. Maybe we're spoiled by all the pictorial representations of all the pictures of her but I have yet to see a picture of Saint Therese smiling. A full smile teeth laughing they're always the very serious very almost sedate nature of a picture of her. Well there is one reason at least for that and that is if you look at the photographs we're really blessed that Celine when she entered Celine was sort of into things like this you know painting and so on and she also got into photography and was allowed to bring her camera into the Carmel which is why we have the photographs of Therese that we have. But the way pictures were taken at the time it was a nine -second exposure so you will always see people very rigid and unmoving and their faces sort of immobile in all of these pictures and that's why in none of them do you see the smile which was the habitual expression on Therese face as the various witnesses all testify.
Fresh update on "marie e" discussed on Discerning Hearts - Catholic Podcasts
"DiscerningHearts.com, in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, presents The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word Television Network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris MacGregor. Let's take a final illustration of this way of living love very concretely. This is Sister Marie of the Trinity now who's speaking, as I've mentioned before, Therese Novus. We are in June of that final summer of Therese life, so again, about three months, a little over three months for Therese to live. Therese is seriously ill at this point. And a deep bond has developed between Therese and this Novus, the one who is, she's one year younger than Therese. And because the tuberculosis is contagious, the prioress has limited very much the contact with Therese to those who are actually caring for her and her own blood sisters, who were actually, her sister Celine was one of those taking care of her. And this was deeply painful for Marie to know that Therese was approaching death and she was cut off from any personal contact with Therese. So Marie writes, I have always felt the three long months of our angel's agony. I'd been forbidden to speak to her under the pretext that as I was young, I might contract her illness, but that was real. And then in parentheses, Marie writes, I was certain of the opposite for sister Therese had told me nobody would catch her disease, that she had asked God for this. Each day, news of her health was sadder and sadder and I was smothered with pain. One day I went to take a walk in the garden and I saw her in her wheelchair under the chestnut trees. When her father died, the family gave to the Carmel the wheelchair, it's kind of a large – it's not a wheelchair in the way we would know it today, a little bit larger, a wooden construction in which once his legs were immobile, their father had spent his last years and they donated that to the Carmel and Therese is actually using now the same chair that her father had used. And so they wheel her out under the trees just to get her outdoors. At this point, she's still able to do that much. She was all alone and she made a sign for me to approach. Marie answers, oh no, they would see us and I have no permission. I entered the grotto of the holy face where I began to cry. Lifting up my head, I saw with surprise little sister Therese seated on a trunk of a tree at my side. She said, I haven't been forbidden to come to you, I love this about Therese, all right, you can't come to me but no one's told me I can't come to you. And even though I should die of it, I want to console you. She dried my tears and placed my head on her heart. I begged her to return to her wheelchair for she was trembling with fever. Therese answers, yes, but not before you have laughed for me. This I did immediately for fear she would get worse and I helped her regain her wheelchair. I don't really think we need much commentary there but there you see again that exquisite sense of another person's pain and the sensitivity with which she meets it regardless of the cost to herself. As I've said a number of times, you don't have to go very deep into Therese to encounter the heroic, it's there again. This was her way of life. This is what she means when she says, all I want is love, my vocation in the heart of the church, I found it, it's love. In the heart of the church I will be love and I'll be everything. The final quality of Therese that I'd like to highlight before moving to a very brief conclusion is her smile, her laugh, her humor. I mentioned earlier that you don't see this in the photos because they had to remain without moving for nine seconds and so this never appeared but the photos that we see but her habitual expression was that smile, that's how the sisters all knew her. This is her sister Leonie in the process for beatification who is writing. She was very cheerful and witty, she had a great sense of humor and was very good at doing impressions of people's voices and mimicking their gestures. I mentioned before she would do this of different people for example that they'd met guides on that trip to Rome and people would just split their sides laughing, they just loved it when Therese would do this. But never to my knowledge did this little amusement degenerate into mockery or give rise to the slightest uncharitableness on her part. She had the tact to know exactly when to stop. So at the community recreation sometimes she would do these things and the sisters would just, they would just roar laughing. Her father had that gift too by the way. All right this is Selene who writes, to the end of her life Therese retained those childlike and charming mannerisms which made her company so pleasant and attractive. In fact you read in one of these testimonies that when Therese for whatever reason was not there at one of those recreations the sisters would say, we're not going to laugh today. All the nuns wanted to visit her in the infirmary so this is during her final illness. Her lovable cheerfulness seemed to take on a new dimension as her suffering increased. While it was only another manifestation of her fortitude of soul it was also the effect of her exquisite charity. She sought in this way to lighten our poignant sorrow as we thought of the impending separation. It's the unshakable other centeredness in Therese that even as she is the one in pain and dying when her sisters or others would come to visit her in the infirmary her concern was that the visit not be heavy and she would find ways with puns with just charming observations on things to get them laughing. And this again referring to her final illness this is her cousin Marie. If you were to see our little patient you wouldn't be able to stop laughing. If we just pause on that there's a lot of heroism with her body in pain and just knowing that death is imminent. She always has to be saying something funny. Ever since she has become convinced that she is going to die she has been cheerful as a little finch. There are times when one would pay to be near her. It's somewhat amusing to see her laugh and to see her mischievous look when she's telling all this and goes on to remarks about the doctor and so on. And that was Therese keeping the others cheerful you know in the midst of her illness like that. And then finally one very brief quotation, something that she said to Sister Marie of the Trinity, her novice. One day she said, my cheeks hurt from laughing so much. My cheeks hurt from laughing so much. And I think it's to be hoped that we could say that at least occasionally in our lives. We'll give such joy to others as Therese did in the Carmel. Now on one occasion, as I'll move toward a conclusion here, she said the following to her sister Celine. While Celine recounts this, among her duties to God the servant of God attached particular importance to gratitude for favors received. We've talked a little bit about this, but gratitude was of special importance for Therese. As we live our spiritual lives, well, the way Celine recounts this as a duty that we owe God is gratitude for favors received. She said to me, these two are words that I've often thought about. Gratitude is the thing that brings us the most grace. Let's hear that again. Well, let's ask it as a question then answer it. What more than anything else brings God's grace into our souls, into our lives, into our hearts? Gratitude is the thing that brings us the most grace. Just to recognize God's gifts of love, to recognize gifts of love from other people around us who have done things for us or eased our path in various ways. And this again too, in the ordinary quality of daily life. Gratitude is the thing that brings us the most grace. All of us, I'm sure as I say this, don't have to think too hard to remember a time when someone said thank you to us, a thank you that we've never forgotten, when we've reached out or tried to help in various ways. And maybe the person said no more than that even, but said thank you and let us know that he or she was grateful and we never forget it. Gratitude is the thing that brings us the most grace. What if we had a culture of gratitude in our families, in our parishes, in our workplace? So I'm going to say it again, gratitude is the thing that brings us the most grace. Do you want to grow in love of God? What's the most sure, grace-filled way to do it? See God's gifts, express your gratitude to God. Again, this is where Ignatius begins the daily examen, precisely why he begins it. It's the most important thing to see in every day. Gratitude is the thing that brings us the most grace. I have learned this from experience. Try it and you will see. Try it and you will see. It could almost be a commission that St. Therese gives to us. I am content with whatever God gives me and I show him this in a thousand little ways. All right, to conclude, I'm going to read two final quotations. To conclude, and the first is back to one of her letters. This is in April of the last year of her life. She died on September 30th of that year. And this is a letter to a seminarian, Maurice Bellière, who later would be after her death would be ordained and serve as a missionary in Africa until he contracted an illness, had to come back to France, and spent the final time of his life in the same institution where Therese's father had been institutionalized for those years. And he's struggling as a seminarian. He's asked for the prayers of one of the Carmelite sisters. The prioress asks Therese to pray for him. And there is this brief exchange of letters in the last months of her life. And it's here, as I mentioned earlier, more than anywhere else you see Therese will answer these letters because she knows his need at the cost of enormous physical exertion in her illness. So he says in this letter to her, since your exile still lasts, so Therese has let him know that, of course, she hasn't died yet from the tuberculosis. Since your exile still lasts, sister, please continue for me the sweet consolation of your good and holy thoughts. And this is why she writes to him because he really wants to hear from her. You will never be able to measure the good they are doing me. The breeze coming from Carmel to refresh my burning and tired head makes me better by giving me new fervor. And it's my hope that what we've done here in these conversations would open a window for a little bit of that breeze, that refreshing breeze flowing from the caramel from Therese that can take our burning and tired head, the weariness, the discouragement at times that we may feel, and refresh all of that and instill within us a new fervor to love and serve the Lord. And finally I'll conclude, okay, we'll conclude with words of her cousin Marie, as I mentioned in the caramel with her. This is September 11th, so we're 20 days before her death at this point. One day she made me promise that I would be a saint. She was asking me if I were making any progress, and I answered, I promise you that I'll be a saint when you have left for heaven. At that moment, I'll put my whole heart into it. And Therese answers, and this is for all of us, oh, don't wait for that, begin now. And then a personal memory. The month which preceded my entrance into Carmel has remained for me a very sweet memory. Her entrance was delayed a few months because they wanted to spare her the rigors of the Lenten fast at her young age of 15, so they had her enter when the Lent ended. So she had a longer wait than she had expected, that's the period she's writing about here. The month which preceded my entrance into Carmel has remained for me a very sweet memory. At first I said to myself, I'll be a saint when I'm in Carmel. While waiting, I won't put myself out, but God showed me the value of time, I did just the opposite of what I was thinking. I wanted to prepare myself for my entrance by being very faithful, and it's one of the most beautiful months of my life. So here's her conclusion, believe me, don't wait until tomorrow to begin becoming a saint. So we'll take that as our commission from St. Therese.

"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. This next letter brings us to just about one year before Therese's death so she's 23 at this point and it's a letter to Sister Maria of Saint Joseph who is 38 years old at this point. Let's read a description of Sister Maria of Saint Joseph. She was a very difficult sister. She had a very difficult childhood. There was a goodness in her but there was also a violent temper, mood swings and so forth and because of that the sisters tended to avoid her. So this is from Marie, Therese's sister Marie's deposition in the cause of canonization where she describes Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. This sister was subject to the blackest moods and did scarcely any work. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen. Therese had volunteered, no one else wanted, to approach the sister and Therese's heart always went out to the difficult people, to the suffering people. You know Therese is the patron of the missions and so her gaze reaches out to those who are very distant from her wanting to bring them close to Christ but her gaze also fell on those who were the nearest to her and she saw the needs and she would approach them. With incredible insensitivity the follow happens. I saw her when Sister Therese was already an invalid come to her to call for the week's linen which she had given her to repair and because Sister Therese had not been able to complete her task the sister reproached her severely instead of thanking her for what she had done in spite of being so ill. So this is Sister Marie of Saint Joseph. Sister Therese took the reproaches as if they were so much praise. This poor unfortunate sister became the object of Sister Therese's tenderest compassion. One day when I had confided to her how much trouble that sister gave me the servant of God Therese said, ah if you only knew how necessary it is to forgive her how much she is to be pitied. It is not her fault she is so poorly gifted. She is like an old clock that has to be rewound every quarter of an hour just so emotionally needy. Yes it is as bad as that. Well wouldn't you have pity on it? Oh how necessary it is to practice charity toward one's neighbor. And Therese also recognized and appreciated the good qualities that Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had and they're listed here. A tenderness, good memory, fine singing voice. And it pained Therese to see Sister Marie of Saint Joseph ostracized by the rest of the community and so she resolved to move closer to her. Oh we will say that eventually the mental emotional mood swings and temper and so forth of Sister Marie of Saint Joseph were diagnosed by a doctor as a form of mental disability that was just incompatible with religious life. And so when she was 51 she was obliged to leave the convent. She lived for another 26 years before her death and she always remembered Therese with fondness, always followed the cause of canonization, stayed in contact with the with the Carmel. Well what Therese did I think we'd have to say pretty heroically was she volunteered to help Sister Marie of Saint Joseph in the linen room which was where she worked alone because no one, they were afraid of her. They didn't want to be the subject of her violent temper and the speech and all that would go with it. And we have a series of the just brief notes that Therese writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph at this time and I'm only going to read one of them and they're in sort of childlike childish almost language and Therese really takes the the role of a mother concerned for Sister Marie. Is she sleeping well? Striving to take that combative spirit which Sister Marie of Saint Joseph has and to move that towards spiritual combat to help her try to offer her struggles and so forth for the good of souls, for the good of the church. So this is one of these letters that she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph and you know this allows us to to highlight one of these qualities of Therese. I think we'll return to this later on. When there were suffering difficult people around her, people that everybody else tended to avoid, she was the one who would take the initiative to approach them. I mentioned they had these this recreation times twice a day when they could sit together and just freely converse. It was her practice the others noted it and you see it in the cause of canonization to choose to sit next to the ones that nobody else wanted to sit next to. So much so that one of these sisters convinced that Therese was really a great friend, that they were great friends. Therese did this so naturally, so easily without any sign of struggle, well without any sign of struggle. She's the one of whom Therese said sometimes the only thing I can do is just leave her because it's just too difficult for me and then she'd come back when she was more able again. So she writes to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph, I am delighted with the little child. Now this is one of these letters where Therese uses the third person and metaphor. If we notice, for example, when she wrote to her childhood playmate Celine, there's none of that kind of language. It's very direct. It's the kind of language her mother would have read. So Therese, depending on the recipient, will adopt a different style of writing and here it's that third person and metaphor. I am delighted with the little child which is to say I'm really happy with what I've seen in you and the one who carries her in his arms is still more delighted than I. The Lord just loves what he's seen in you. Ah, how beautiful is the little child's vocation. Who else was speaking to Sister Marie of Saint Joseph like this? She was pretty universally simply avoided and here is this fellow sister just saying I'm so delighted to see the goodness in you and Jesus sees it more than I. It is not one mission that she must evangelize but all missions and that is offer your struggles and sufferings for the missions for the apostolate of the Church. How will she do this? So how are you, sister with your personal struggles in the laundry room, going to offer something for the far -flung missionary work of the Church? And she answers, how will she do this? By loving, by sleeping because Sister Marie of Saint Joseph had struggles with that and Therese will often gently hope and encourage her to get the sleep that she needs.

"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Let me read one more citation with regards to the Little Way, and this is from a letter written by Sister Marie of the Trinity. Sister Marie of the Trinity was one of those five novices that Therese assisted during her last years. A friendship developed between them. When Marie entered, she was three years younger than Therese. For the first time, Therese was not the youngest in the monastery anymore. Marie had entered a Carmel in Paris. It had not worked out. She had returned home and was now making a second try in the Carmel at Lisieux. And she was not an entirely easy character. She's a wonderful woman. You get to like her as you get to know her, but she could be rambunctious, difficult in this time in Carmel, and without Therese, hell probably would not have. And Marie developed a great love for Therese, was one of the witnesses to her life. And at this point, it's years after Therese's death, and she's writing to another sister. And in the letter, she refers to the Little Way of Therese. You see, the way to be happy on the Little Way of Therese is to abandon yourself to God and to think of yourself as little as possible, not even to seek keeping an account of whether you make progress or not. Am I doing better? Don't worry about any of that. That's not our business. Here is the practical. This is where the Little Way leads in terms of how we live our life. What do we need to do then to live the Little Way? Well, we can almost predict at this point, given what we've already said about heroism in the small daily things, we have only to try to perform all the little acts of daily life with the greatest possible love. And there it is. And that's why I say the Little Way, far from being a settling for less, is a freeing of the heart to be heroic in what God has given most of us every day of our lives, and that's the small daily things that we're called to do. And to do these with the greatest possible love. Actually, it was Sister Marie of the Trinity, when she was a novice, who at one point was sort of languidly walking across the courtyard from one place to another, to whatever her next task was, and Therese saw it. She said to her, no. Is that the way we take care of our children? Go with energy to the next task. Spiritual children, she meant it, for whom their lives are meant to be a sacrifice and to bless through their prayer and their sacrifice. We have only to perform all the little acts of daily love with the greatest possible love. To recognize humbly, but without sadness, our thousand imperfections, which are always resurfacing. I missed it again. There was a child who asked my help, and I just was impatient and didn't have time, or whatever it might be, which are always resurfacing. And to ask God with confidence, with confidence, ask God grace to transform them into love. I'm going to read that again because I think that that one sentence is about as good a description of the little way in practice as we will ever find. We have only, so we have only to try to perform all the little acts of daily life with the greatest possible love. To recognize humbly, so the little way is humble, we recognize our limitations. But without sadness, our thousand imperfections, and sometimes that's the way it feels, you know, again and again, and this and that, our thousand imperfections, which are always resurfacing, and they are. And to ask God, so it's his strength, not ours, to ask God with confidence to transform those imperfections into love. So that's the little way, or that's what she's referring to, you know, in this letter to Father Rulong when he's in China, and it's obviously very central and very deep to the entirety of her message. So the little way in some regards, we've talked in previous conversations, Father Gallagher, about the big three, be aware, understand, take action. Really the little way is the little three, straight, short, and new, straight, short, and new, and that is a practice that we all can undertake every single day. So often we want to dive more into knowing God, like you said, the desires. We might have a desire to undertake Bible studies and to enter into parish programs and missions, I'm going to pray more, I'm going to fast more, I'm going to do all those things, and those in themselves are not necessarily a bad thing. But sometimes when we take on too much, it can be discouraging.
A highlight from S17E8: Why People Cheat w/ Dr. Nicolle Zapien
"Hi, I'm Yui Xu, and I'm Julie Krafcik. We're active daters turned dating sociologists here to dive into everything modern dating and relationships. Welcome to the datable podcast. Hi, datables. So good to have you all back with another episode of in case you didn't know, it's datable when we talk about dating. Julie, your trip to Mexico looked like so much fun. Oh, my God, it was amazing. I am having a hard time being back. I'll just say that. But we got out right in the nick of time, though, because there was a stage four hurricane that came through right after we left like the day after. And I shared that I went down because my friend has been there with her partner and she sent me a video of their balcony. They like had a hole through the roof because it was so crazy. So yeah, so you could have been stranded. Oh, totally. One more day we got out right in time. But it was an incredible trip. It was so relaxing. Just what I needed, you know, just beaches. We did a taco tour that was really fun. My partner and I ended up being the only ones on the tour. Shout out to Ricky or as he said, Ricky Martin to remember him. He was our tour guide. He was amazing. And then we also did a snorkeling. We did hidden beach, historically and hidden beach excursion. You had told me to do this and you were like, I even went with my ex. And it was amazing. I know, like the one thing I remember from that trip was the hidden beach. It was super cool. Like for anyone that's unaware, it's like it's an island. And then it's a very small beach, but you have to swim to get into it. They limit the amount of people that can go through every day. So it's never guaranteed that you can get on. But like it was basically like in our time slot, we like 30 minutes once we got there was just our tour group. Yeah, it's so clean. It's so peaceful. Just kind of a cool little like out of this world experience. You're like, whoa, you can swim into this thing. It's kind of like a cave but open top. I don't know. It's strange. And last week, you know, you asked me I talked about the trip and you asked me like what it would be like to go on a couple's trip. And I didn't know but it ended up working out really well. I think too, because they had their home base. So there were nights that my partner and I just like went off and did our thing and let them do their normal routine. But then there were also times where we think we hung out together. And then we also all went away for the weekend, like at an all inclusive hotel. So that kind of felt like we were doing vacation a little more together. But that was fun in a different way. So I think all said and done. It was a great balance. And you know, I was just like reflecting about this. And I put up an Instagram post. But I just remember like explicitly having this conversation with my friend that I went to see when it was like, you know, during COVID, we didn't go on like a far trip, we went to Carbelle because it was, you know, in the time that you couldn't really travel when restrictions had lifted enough that we felt like we could leave. And we went to Carbelle and we had a great time, like a great time. But I remember like her being like, Oh, you know, like, it's so nice. All these couples are here. Like one day, like, I want to do that. And I'm like, we will, we're gonna go on a couple's trip. Like it's gonna happen, you know? Here you are. Exactly. Like, I think there's something so magical, though, about that. It could feel so far off when you're in it. And then one day it just happens. And it's not. And you look back on that day. And you're like, Oh, yeah, of course, that would eventually happen. And I think both trips were really fun in different ways. So just a reminder, too, that it's like, wherever you are right now is a good place to be in. You'll move to a different stage at some point. It's not a rush that we think it is. Yes, because you got to enjoy where you are today. Because this this moment won't last that long. I met up with two girlfriends in Athens. And they were like, this may be our last trip before we find our husbands. And I was like, No, don't don't let this don't feel like this is the layover to a relationship so that you can go on trips with your partner. They're so different and you get a different experience. And it's, it's good to have both. Totally have to keep that in mind. Right? Yeah. Yeah. And I don't mean to say this, like, I can never go on a girl's trip alone ever again. Because clearly, it's not the case. I just did two of them, like the weekends prior. So that is not the case at all. But it's more just like where you are today might very well change really quickly. It usually does, you know, it's never a set. This is forever. So if you're feeling down about where you are, in a year, things might look completely different. Yeah, it's not an either or no, I can't just be like, oh, this no more girls trips when I'm in a relationship. I don't know relationship trips when I'm single, like, no, anything could happen any day. Yeah, anywhere, anytime. That is true. And I mean, I think that's like a larger thing, too. I mean, all the stuff that's been going on in the world. And again, just like a moment's notice, things can completely shift and change gear. And just some of it has just been so horrific. And I think just wanted to, like, also take a moment to kind of share for you know, our audience that's in this and feeling it because like, I know I am and you know, I don't have family in Israel, I don't have Israeli roots. But like, as a Jewish American, I'm still feeling it and sort of like put it out there to people that like, this is a hard time. So do what you do to self soothe as well. What are you feeling? What are those feelings? I've there was a few points of view that I saw online that really resonated with me because I admit that I'm not well versed in what's happening in Israel and Palestine. Like, I'm not gonna speak to the politics there. I think in general, it's a tragedy, every lot life that is lost in this. It's been really hard, I think, to see groups that are, you know, basically saying that this is like, okay, that these terrorist actions happened. And that's actually really terrifying to me that there's been protests in New York and San Francisco even actively saying like, this is justified. And I think that part's been very scary and terrifying to me. So my take on it is like, at the end of the day, it's a terrorist attack. These are civilians that were at a music festival that do not deserve this and like people being killed and raped, babies being deheaded, like it's the whole bit is horrific. So the humanity of all this, like, it's okay to one not have a stance of the politics because you don't know. And also just to be sad. I think that's okay, too. And that's how I'm feeling right now. Yeah, it's like, I'm definitely not well versed in the politics of it all. But I just feel like from a human humanity level, you could be at a music festival, but you have to fear for your life now from a terrorist attack. You and I were texting back and forth. And we were saying like, I can't believe this is happening in 2023. And these attacks have given permission for more anti -Semitism people to come out and in the US, in cities that are that we live in, which is ridiculous. And for some reason, like, where were these people? They were just hiding out waiting for something like this to happen. And now they think they can go out and wave a Nazi flag on the 405 in Irvine. Like, what the fuck? I know it's happening. I mean, I think that's why it's been really scary. Like, obviously, I don't want to say like, it's been scarier here than it is real. Clearly, that is not the case. But like, it's scary that it's even taking form here, too. Like, that's scary to me as like a Jewish American, too. Yeah. Very, very scary times that we're in. That's for sure. Mm hmm. You know, what's scarier than dating is the real world. Yeah. Well, it definitely puts it perspective, some stuff, doesn't it? Like, I think that's like happened. Like, I've had a few conversations this week with some folks. And it's like, okay, the stuff we're going through, it's we're going through it, you know, like, no one's gonna deny your feelings. But like, when you put it in the larger perspective of what's happening, it almost feels minuscule in a way. I mean, it certainly does. I'm still like, in shock that this is happening today. This is straight up war, where people are getting killed. This is still happening. Yeah. In developed civilization. Yeah, I think like the reading stories of families, and you know, like, there was a story of like, a couple who they basically got killed, and their two, like, 10 month old twins were still they were live, but like, they're gonna grow up without parents now, because of this, you know, it's like, that stuff is really heart wrenching to read. Well, take care, take care of each other, take care of yourself, like you said, and I don't know, there's no fucking solution to any of this just makes me really scared for the future our children are growing up in. Anyways, I'm not sure how we transition off this, but cheating doesn't look like anything compared to this. Actually, yeah, cheating is the least of anybody's worries in the grand scheme of things. Damn, damn, isn't that true, though? It's just like, you could be going through something, you think it's the end of the world. And you look, you pull back and look at what's going on actually going on the world. You're like, no, no, there's other things that are actually ending the world. Like, I'm not saying that this is a good thing at all to have this comparison, but it sure as heck does put things in perspective, that's for sure. Yes. And we are speaking to a cheating infidelity expert, her name is Nicole. And I think it's always good to get a professional perspective on these bad dating behaviors. And infidelity is one that we've been trying to demystify, because obviously, like of what's been happening in my life, but also just we've been curious about this topic for a long time. Why do people cheat? Do they feel guilty? Is there remorse? Is there coming back from cheating? All of those questions, but really the why the why is what we want to peel back on. So this episode truly peels back the layers of the why. Yeah, and a big shout out to Marie Thuan. She's a dating coach and PhD. And she came on the sounding board after dark when we had that talk about dating profiles. But we should look into having her as a guest because she talks a lot about compersion, which is like something that big in the poly community. It's like the joy in others experiencing joy. She talks about like, how you know, you could have that joy that you're partners with someone else, but also experience jealousy, too. It's a very fascinating topic. But she wrote in, I think it was after the episode where I interviewed you about what had happened, we have the call out for guests that could talk about cheating. And she left me a voice memo and was like, I have the perfect person for you. And she sent us to Dr. Zabian. And here we are. That's how we came about with this episode. Even after this episode, I'm still perplexed. I mean, like, after you're you've been in it, there's still so many questions that you feel like my situation was nuanced and this and that. But now that I'm a few months out, I can see I can truly feel sorry for my ex. And I do feel a certain level of compassion and just sadness for him. Coming out of this, like cloud that I've been in, I think anybody who has been the cheater, I hope that once they're able to face what they've done, that they can heal from it because it is also harmful to themselves. And it probably opens Pandora's box to years and years of trauma they've experienced. Yeah, we promise the whole season will not be about cheating. We've definitely had a lot of cheating episodes. But I think even as someone that hasn't been in it, it's a very fascinating topic because my mind is always goes to just like, why? Why would someone do this? Why not just end it? Why, you know, go through this process? And I really like this conversation because it gets into the science behind the why and why, you know, people are prone to cheating. Okay, well, we could go on all day, but we might as well just get into it. So before we do, quick announcements at dateable podcasts. That's where you can find us. Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, pretty much everywhere. That's, that's where we are. Join our Facebook group. We love to connect with people. We have a lot of great discussions there. I was just kind of browsing through the other day. And there's just so many great threads. And I love the conversations where people even like disagree with each other. It's so fascinating. So a lot of really great perspectives in there. People helping each other, supporting one another. It's a great, great quarter of the internet.

"Well, because it's one of those things, I mean, think about this. It's just the kind of thing that sticks in your head. It wraps itself around your brain stem. That is the singing nun. And that was what the record said. The singing nun who has a birthday today. And she would have been, she would have been 90 passed away back in the 80s. But her name was Jean Paul Marie Deckers. She was Belgian and had a number one record there with Dominique in 1963. Boom. There you are. There you are. You know, my sister was a nun. Did you know that about me? I believe in working our way through your family. You have met that. What happened? Well, I don't want to talk about it. I don't have, I didn't have a great relationship with my sister. Well, okay. Sorry. Whoa. Whoa. So it didn't take? I mean, I don't know. Sorry. It's, it's, it's, it's a family thing, you know, and God rest her soul. She passed away and, uh, we were, uh, we difficult, it was difficult, but anyway, when I was a kid growing up and she went off to the convent and everything, when I was a boy, I remember romanticizing her being the nun because that was about the time that sound of music came out. And remember, remember Julie Andrews went off to the convent before she decided to, you know, sully herself with the captain or whatever he was, but the definitive nun imagery for me. And it had to be for you. I was about 10. You were about seven Sally fields, Sally fields, sister, betrayal, the fly, dude, stop it. She was cute. She was really, I always had a thing for Sally field. I did too. This was a gidget. I mean, I was a little, I mean, a little young for the whole gidget thing, but, but yeah, sister betrayal and the flying at some point, executive said, okay, we're going to have a sitcom and the comedy is going to be that she's a nun and she flies and there's something aerodynamic about the things coming off her hat there in the, in the, it's like, okay.

As time went on, there was just this fog of uncertainty.

The Letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Welcome, Father Gallagher. Thank you, Chris. We are exploring the beautiful life of Saint Therese through her letters, and where do we find ourselves now? Well, we'll start at the very beginning, the first of Therese letters. This is taken from the first of two volumes in which her complete correspondence is given to us, and we have the letters to Therese, we have Therese's own letters, and we also have other letters from family members or people close to Therese where they write about Therese. So it's a treasure trove, really, of access to Therese in some wonderful ways as her life unfolds through the years of her life. This is extremely well done, as I said earlier. This is an English translation of volumes that were put together as Therese, the centenary of her birth, approached. She was born in 1873. As 1973 approached, the Carmelites, together with various scholars, put together a team to do a complete and critical publication of all of her writings, and absolutely magnificent work was done. And the more the story of a soul and, of course, these letters and others of her writings depend on that exhaustive French edition that was done at the time. So that's the origin of what we have. Just to remind everyone that the letters were placed and brought forward, what, 20 -some years before her being elevated a Doctor of the Church. That's right. As I said earlier in these conversations, I think anyone who has loved the story of a soul, read the other primary sources and wishes there was more, and has a little bit of courage to go through this many pages, that the letters would be the next step if you really want to pursue it. Well, just for kind of fun in a way, we'll start with the very first of Therese's letters. And she is four years old at this time. And her older sister, Pauline, has Therese in her lap. Pauline is writing a letter to a school friend of hers, a young girl named Louise. And Pauline finishes her letter and then holds Therese and guides her as she writes so that Therese can add this little letter to the letter that Pauline has already written to Louise. And so this is the letter. Dear little Louise, I don't know you, but I love you very much just the same. Pauline told me to write you. She is holding me on her knees because I don't know how to hold a pen. She wants me to tell you that I'm a lazy little girl. But this isn't true because I work all day long playing tricks on my poor little sisters. So I'm a little rascal who is always laughing. Adieu, little Louise, I'm sending you a big kiss. Kiss the visitation for me, that is Sister Marie Aloysia, who was the superior, and Sister Louise, the bonzog, so she gets the name wrong, who was the director of the school, for I don't know anyone else signed Therese. So that's just a young girl's letter held by her sister. All right, we're going to cross then a large margin of time for the next letter. We are now 11 years later and an awful lot has happened in Therese's life in the city. On April 9th of 1888, at 15 years, she has entered the Carmel and it is now July 31st when she writes this letter. So she's been in the Carmel about three and a half months. And what she's going to do in this letter, this is a letter to her father, Louis. This will be our first illustration of, again, this remarkable sensitivity in Therese to others and what's in their hearts and what their needs are, and reaching out with such sensitivity and delicacy and tenderness to meet the needs of others. So she is the 16 -year -old writing to her father, but she's really writing for his sake because she knows how painful this separation is for him. We'll read just a little line from a letter that her father wrote. This is one of the few letters of her father that we have. She entered the day later, her father writes to a friend down in Alençon and included in the letter is this. Therese, my little queen, which was his... He had a nickname for each of the girls.

"Discerninghearts .com in cooperation with the Oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. Father Gallagher is a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The letters of Saint Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Welcome Father Gallagher. Thank you, Chris. We are exploring the beautiful life of Saint Therese through her letters and where do we find ourselves now? Well, we'll start at the very beginning, the first of Therese letters. This is taken from the first of two volumes in which her complete correspondence is given to us and we have the letters to Therese. We have Therese's own letters and we also have other letters from family members or people close to Therese where they write about Therese. So it's a treasure trove really of access to Therese in some wonderful ways as her life unfolds through the years of her life. This is 65 pages, extremely well done as I said earlier. This is an English translation of volumes that were put together as Therese, the centenary of her birth approached. She was born in 1873. As 1973 approached, the Carmelites together with various scholars put together a team to do a complete and critical publication of all of her writings and absolutely magnificent work was done. And the more recent publications that we have of the story of a soul and of course these letters and others of her writings depend on that exhaustive French edition that was done at the time. So that's the origin of what we have. Just to remind everyone that the letters were placed and brought forward what, 20 some years before her being elevated a Doctor of the Church. That's right. As I said earlier in these conversations, I think anyone who has loved the story of a soul read the other primary sources and wishes there was more and has a little bit of courage to go through this many pages that the letters would be the next step if you really want to pursue it. Well, just for kind of fun in a way, we'll start with the very first of Therese's letters. And she is four years old at this time and her older sister Pauline has Therese in her lap. Pauline is writing a letter to a school friend of hers, a woman, a young girl named Louise. And Pauline finishes her letter and then takes Therese, holds Therese and guides her as she writes so that Therese can add this little letter to the letter that Pauline has already written to Louise. And so this is the letter. Dear little Louise, I don't know you, but I love you very much just the same. Pauline told me to write you. She is holding me on her knees because I don't know how to hold a pen. She wants me to tell you that I'm a lazy little girl, but this isn't true because I work all day long playing tricks on my poor little sisters. So I'm a little rascal who is always laughing. Adieu little Louise, I'm sending you a big kiss. Kiss the visitation for me, that is sister Marie Aloysia, who was the superior, and sister Louise, the bonzag, so she gets the name wrong, who was the director of the school, for I don't know anyone else signed Therese. So that's just a young girl's letter held by her sister. All right, we're going to cross then a large margin of time for the next letter. We are now 11 years later and an awful lot has happened in Therese's life in the April 9th of 1888. At 15 years she has entered the Carmel and it is now July 31st when she writes this letter. So she's been in the Carmel about three and a half months and what she's going to do in this letter, this is a letter to her father, Louis. This will be our first illustration of, again, this remarkable sensitivity in Therese to others and what's in their hearts and what their needs are and reaching out with such sensitivity and delicacy and tenderness to meet the needs of others. So she is the 16 year old writing to her father but she's really writing for his sake because she knows how painful this separation is for him. We'll read just a little line from a letter that her father wrote. This is one of the few letters of her father that we have. She writes, a day later, her father writes to a friend down in Alençon and included in the letter is this. Therese, my little queen, which was his... He had a nickname for each of the girls. Marie, for example, was the diamond because she was strong and Pauline was the pearl because she was such a... He was a jeweler. You know, you get jewelers' names and so on. And Therese, he called his queen. Therese, my god alone could demand such a sacrifice. She's often called the Benjamin in the correspondence, the one that's so dear to her father's heart in a way that everyone knew was special. And already two of his daughters have left. Leonie very much is trying. She fails three times but she's trying to enter religious life. And now the one who is dearest to his heart has just left him, gone to the Carmel. God alone could demand such a sacrifice and we really need to hear those words. But he's helping me so powerfully that through my tears my heart abounds with joy. This gives us just a window into the measure of the man. You have that powerful scene where Therese asks his permission to enter the Carmel. It's the preceding Pentecost and, you know, if you go to visit her home in Lisieux, there in the garden behind the house there's a statue that commemorates this. You see her and her father seated on a bench and she is leaning her head against him and she has just told him about entering the Carmel. Maybe we could read this from the story of a soul, just as a background to this letter. So it's very clear to Therese now that she wants to enter the Carmel. She hopes to enter the Carmel at age 15 and she has to ask her father about this. She needs his permission and it's not going to be easy because she knows the bond of love that's there. I chose the Feast of Pentecost as the day to break the news all day long begging the apostles to pray for me, to inspire me with the right words. Shouldn't they help the timid child who was chosen by God to be the apostle of apostles through her prayers and sacrifices in Carmel? I found the opportunity to speak to my dear little father. Often you'll see this little used in the correspondence. It's an endearing diminutive like Johnny, you know, instead of John and so on. So that's the significance of it. It's an endearment. I found the opportunity to speak to my dear little father only in the afternoon after Vespers. He was seated by the well contemplating marvels of nature with his hands joined. The son whose rays had lost their ardor gilded the high tree tops where little birds were joyfully chanting their evening song. You know, when I read this, I'm a writer. This is pretty good writing just as writing to describe a scene. And Therese wrote this in odd moments, seated, sort of half seated on this little kneeling, half kneeling, half seating bench that she would have in her cell just as she got odd moments to do this. And actually there are no erasures, no corrections. She simply wrote. This just was flowing from her as she wrote. But I was struck just by the caliber of her writing, even as writing, you know. Papa's handsome face had a heavenly expression about it, giving me the feeling that peace flooded his heart. Without saying a word, I sat down by his side, my eyes already wet with tears. He gazed at me tenderly and taking my head, he placed it on his heart saying, what's the matter, my little queen, tell me. Then rising as though to hide his own emotion, he walked while still holding my head on his heart. Through my tears, I confided my desire to enter Carmel and soon his tears mingled with mine. He didn't say one word to turn me from my vocation, simply contenting himself with the statement that I was still very young to make such a serious decision. I defended myself so well that with Papa's simple and direct character, he was soon convinced that my desire was God's will. And in his deep faith, he cried out that God was giving him a great honor and asking his children from him. As I say, you can't go very far in this whole story without touching heroism. We continued our walk for a long time and encouraged by the kindness with which my incomparable father received my confidences, my heart poured itself out to him. Papa seemed to be rejoicing with that joy that comes from a sacrifice already made. He spoke just like a saint and I'd love to recall his words and write them down, but all I preserved of them is a memory too sacred to be expressed. What I do recall, however, is a symbolic action my dear king performed, not realizing its full meaning. Going up to a low wall, he pointed to some little white flowers, like lilies in miniature, and plucking one of them, he gave it to me, explaining the care with which God brought it into being and preserved it just to that very day. While I listened, I believed I was hearing my own story. So the little flower, you can you can see it there. So great was the resemblance between what Jesus had done for the little flower and little Therese. I accepted it as a relic and noticed that in gathering it, Papa had pulled all its roots out without breaking them. It seemed destined to live on in another soil more fertile than the tender moss where it had spent its first days. And in fact she kept that flower for the rest of her life. Now that gives us a background to this letter. Her father, with great faith but with deep deep deep human sorrow, has accepted his daughter's vocation to the Carmel and three and a half months earlier saw her essentially for the last time because from then on they could meet in the speak room of the Carmel, but there was a grill between the sisters and the people in the outer parlor so that they at best would see them very faintly. And of course chances simply to be with her in the way that was so dear to both of them were gone at this point. So Therese, knowing her father's suffering, she writes this letter, My dear king, so these are the names they call each other, she is his queen and he is her king. If you knew the pleasure your carp, your monster, which is underlined, gave us. Now as I mentioned earlier, Louis was a great fisherman. He loved to fish and already he at Alençon and later when they went to Lisieux and the his daughter sent to the Carmel, he would bring his catch to these sisters. Part of their life was that they could not eat meat, so they never eat meat, but they could eat fish. So this was a real treat for the sisters in the various convents when he would bring these fish to them. To us it sounds kind of like a simple thing. He caught some fish, he brought them, but it was really quite a treat and something special for the sisters and he would do this routinely. So what pleasure your fish gave us, the dinner was held back for half an hour. Marie of the Sacred Heart, so that's his oldest daughter, made the sauce and it was delicious. It tasted like, and she quotes the French here, La cuisine du monde. It was even better than the sumptuous cuisine d 'italie. And that is not saying little, for what banquets and what company do you remember, little father? So she's referring to the pilgrimage that they made to Rome where they experienced in the various hotels where they stayed, you know, the marvelous cuisine and, you know, the very well -prepared food. And so she is reminding her father of that trip and saying this tasted even better than all of that. But it isn't always that that gives appetite, at least to me, for I haven't eaten so much since I've been in Carmel. I feel that I am entirely in my element, so three and a half months into the Carmel. If Mademoiselle Pauline, friend of the family from Alençon, were here she would say that, quote, I have found my way. Your diamond can't write you. Diamond is their father's nickname for Marie, the oldest, for she is doing the washing. But this doesn't stop her from thinking of you, dear little father. Now you can already see that this letter isn't, as said before, it's entirely other -centered. Very little said about her and what she says about herself is only to put her father at ease to know that things are well with her. And not everything was easy from her. As she says in the story of a soul, when the doors to Carmel opened to her, she opened her arms to receive suffering. And so things were never easy for her, but her whole focus and intention in this letter is to lift up her father's heart. Now she's obviously saying the truth when she says I'm in my element here, profoundly so, but there's no word of any struggles or sufferings that may have been there. She kisses you with her whole heart, and this is Marie, and you know that the heart of your biggest daughter is not little. I think of all you used to say to us frequently, vanity of vanities, all is vanity, vanity of life which passes, etc., probably quoting from the imitation of Christ, which of course quoting from Koheleth, you know, vanity of vanities. Louis knew the imitation well. Therese actually had it basically memorized. It got to be kind of, even before she entered, when they were in the speak room visiting with her older sisters, the others of the nuns would ask her to quote a given passage, and she could do it by memory. She really, really assimilated that book deeply. The more I live, this is a 16 year old, the more I live, the more I find this is true, that all is vanity on this earth. When I think of you, dear little father, I naturally think of God, for it seems to me that it is impossible to see anyone more holy than you on the earth, and that was very sincere. She and all of her sisters really felt that kind of veneration for both parents, actually. When I think that in a week it will be four months since I am in Carmel, I can't get over it. It seems to me that I have always been here, and on the other hand, it seems that my entrance was yesterday, how everything passes. The more I live, dear little father, the more I love you, and that's what she wants above all to convey to. The heart of this father, who she knows, loves her so deeply, and misses her, willingly gave her to God, but not without great sacrifice. I don't know how this can be, but it is the truth, and I wonder what this will be at the end of my life, if I just keep loving you more and more like this. I am very proud of my title of Queen of France and Navarre. I hope to merit it always. Jesus, the King of Heaven, when taking me for himself, has not taken me away from my holy king on earth. Oh no. Always, if my dear little father wills it, and does not find me too unworthy, I shall remain Papa's queen. The bright pearl, which is Louis' nickname for Pauline, the bright pearl hugs you very tightly, underlined. Adieu, and see you soon, dear king. See you soon, because they were allowed weekly visits for a half hour, and he would come. Those would be the occasions in which her father would also make these various gifts to the Carmel. See you, relatively so, because there was the grill in between. And Therese always effaced herself during these visits, as she spoke little, kind of stood, kept to the back, but there was at least that much contact on a weekly basis.

Kerry Hines and Michael Hopkins Reflect as They Approach 900 Episodes
"When I think about how far we have come, on the All New Hair Radio Morning Show, I am just taken aback. We're talking about 900 plus episodes. Wow. So, yeah, so I've gotta say, because you've been with us as the host of the Vet Talk Radio Show. You've done quite a bit of broadcast in your own right of your 30 minute weekly show, the Vet Talk Radio Show. So you understand, probably better than most, how big this is. Oh yeah, very big. So Michael, I'm gonna ask you if you can kind of help us to put it into words. What goes through your mind when you think of this? 900 or 900 plus episodes, that's a lot of a three hour broadcast of the Hair Radio Morning Show. So what kind of goes through your mind, sir? Lots of things, Carrie. One of them is the excitement. It is so exciting to be a part of 900 shows. It is so exciting. A lot of people don't get that opportunity to be a part of something like this. And I'm a part of something like this, and it just blows me away to be a part of something that's just bigger than you, is bigger than me, is just huge. A lot of people do not get that opportunity. No, they don't. They just don't. And Michael, I just want to jump in and say, it feels like you've been with us for all 900 episodes. You fit in with our broadcast. That is almost like you're part of the fabric of the All New Hair Radio Morning Show, because you are. We get to host the show, Michael Hopkins, Carrie Hines, and Nicole Marie. And I've got to say, Michael, you've been with us for hundreds of episodes, literally. And folks have come to expect you every day to have that cup of coffee or a cup of tea first thing in the morning. And it just means something. So is it a surprise that you've done so well fitting into, you know, the hair and beauty format, as we know that you come from a military background, almost the antithesis of hair and beauty, if you will, although there is a lot of commonality and spillover. But is it a big surprise? I would imagine it to be a little bit of a surprise that you kind of fit in and of kind made a lot of this. You know, you've made it your home. What do you think of that, Michael? Yes, Carrie, it is a big surprise, because as you said, I come from a, I guess you'd say, a different world. I come from a military, law enforcement, security, kind of high -level government contracting world. And this is a whole new world for me, the hair and the beauty community. It's a whole new world. And what I'm finding, Carrie, is that I'm enjoying this world.
A highlight from LST2 A Glimpse of Zlie The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Podcast
"Of the Mary, a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction, according to the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. He is featured on several series found on the Eternal Word Television Network. He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri, founder of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life. The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Father Timothy Gallagher. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Father Gallagher, it seems to me that the way you've described the wonderful home of St. Therese that she was born into, that this really exemplifies what St. John Paul II called the domestic church, that this is an area where in the heart of the family, faith is nurtured, love is nurtured, hope is nurtured, all these virtues are nurtured in this interaction, and yet they're still very much in the world. I mean, they had to be, did they not, to be able to even sustain their businesses, but also to engage with their family and friends, and yet they made a point of creating this space so that their children could be raised in such a beautiful environment. And I'd say there are two components of that. The most important is what they created within the home, and that was that faith, God, Jesus were very much at the center. The five children saw this evidenced in their parents. For example, they would rise to go to 530 Mass every morning at the beginning of these very busy days, and the way they prayed taught their children the faith, their prayers, their esteem for the church, their fidelity to the various devotions, you know, when Lent would come in the various times of the year. God, Jesus, faith was very much at the center of this home, and without strain because it was so authentic in both parents, and the daughters were very much drawn into that and imbibed it as children growing up with the results that are evident. So the main thing was what they created positively within the home, but as we already saw in one of these quotes from the daughters, they were also very careful to exclude any contrary influence from the home. So they were very, very careful about that, so that the daughters grew up with a kind of appropriate and healthy innocence that was not taken away from them by harmful contacts. So much so that when Therese finally, when they were now in Lisieux, she did begin her formal schooling at the Benedictine Abbey run by the sisters at the school there. For the first time, she encountered things like meanness and selfishness and these sorts of things which were unknown to her because the family was this loving family that it was. So you see, the parents concerned to do both things, put God at the center and with care remove the influences that could undermine that. Probably harder today because those influences are so much more invasive, but a parenting that would attempt to create the space in which the faith can be lived deeply rooted. I think for the example of these two parents would want to be attentive to both of those elements. I can't help but recall in the life of Saint Teresa of Jesus, Teresa of Avila, where she says, watch out just from her own experience to be able to guard your children and watch out who their friends are, see the influences because she saw the ill effect in her own life not being protected from that. It seems to be a general consensus, no matter what era we find ourselves in, that this is a basic staple for raising an environment, ideally a healthy family, one that allows God's grace in the fullest form to be able to anoint the family. Would that be a way of saying that? Yes, and this is just a traditional thing in our whole spirituality. If we move it to another notch, not just harmful influences, but bad influences, then we are always invited to avoid the near occasions of sin in our own lives and so on. And I'd say if we're responsible for others, then we need to have an eye out for that to remove those today. So that would mean decisions that the wise parents would make about the internet and phones and tablets and television and social media, all of these kinds of things, which are pretty important today. What we're doing right now with podcasts indicates the richness of what can be done through these means, but they can also be used in a harmful way. And so, especially children growing up obviously would need to be protected from that. When they are not, children are exposed too soon to too much. God's grace can do anything, so anything can be overcome. Nothing is impossible for God. I can do all things and God who strengthens me, as Paul says, but it's harder. So to, well, let's just take an illustration from Therese again, when she is speaking about the image of the flower, which was so, which she used so widely. Of course, she loved flowers very, very much. And the different flowers in the Garden of Sanctity, you have a Saint Mary Magdalene, who is a beautiful flower because of her repentance and holy life after a life of sinfulness. And she says that's a great love of God that he would bring someone out of that and lead a person to such a life of love of God and holiness. But she said it's an even greater love when the parent, the father, seeing the stumbling block and the path of the person removes it before the person gets there. And that's what she is so grateful to for God in her own life. And that's an image, I think, of what a loving father and mother do. And certainly, Therese's parents did that with great care. They were close to their children, they knew their lives, they were available to them, of course, they had very busy lives themselves with their own businesses and everything else, but the children were always loved, the parents were always available when they needed them. And so, because they were that close to them, they were able to help them in that way. Well, let's pick up again with Celine, Therese's sister, Celine, four years older than Therese, speaking about their parents. Eternal life was the dominant concern of my parents. My mother once wrote to Pauline, the second of the daughters, I wanted to have many children so as to rear them for heaven. That sentence itself already says an awful lot about their mother. Whenever one of my little brothers or sisters died, her spirit of faith gave her such energy and she was so consoled by the thought that these little angels were in heaven, that people around her said, quote, it is not worth commiserating with Madame Martin, she does not grieve over the death of her children, which was certainly not the case. If you read her letters, you see the deep, deep pain and sorrow that she had as she watched child after child die so early in life. But her faith sustained her, these have entered eternal life. Both my parents went to early mass every day and received communion as often as they could, both fasted and abstained throughout the whole of Lent, which was the practice until some years ago, the full 40 days. My father was wonderfully kind to his neighbors and never spoke the least evil of them. He made excuses for all their faults and allowed no criticism of them. Above all, he had a great esteem for priests. Our father loved his children very much. He had an almost maternal love for us. In fact, after the death of their mother, his daughters became almost simultaneously paternal and maternal. We, for our part, had an affectionate reverence for him that almost amounted to worship. He was especially fond of Therese, whom he called his little queen, but we found that quite natural and we're not at all jealous. Besides, we were conscious of the fact that at heart he loved us all equally, nor did Therese take advantage of this affection for her own ends and so forth." So that's just a little word about both parents. Nice start. Well, let's move now to her mother's letters. This particular letter is from two years before Zélie's death, and it's a letter to her sister, who there was a great closeness and love between Zélie and her sister. Her sister entered religious life and was a nun at the visitation convent at Le Mans, which was, oh, maybe 50 miles or so away from Alençon. As I say, there was a deep bond between them. Unfortunately, this is the one letter of Zélie to her sister that has been preserved. It would have been a treasure to have the rest of these. Now, this is two years before her death. Her cancer is not really in the picture at this. She's aware that something's not right, but it's not impeding anything. It's not serious at this point. And she has just been to Lisieux to visit with her daughters, to visit her brother Isidore and her sister -in -law Céline. And she's describing this visit, Sister Marie d 'Ocité, which was the name in religion of Azélie's sister. I was delighted by our trip to Lisieux. Now, see what I mean about ordinary? This is a mother and her daughters who have been taking her daughters to visit their uncle and aunt. I have a sister -in -law who has a kindness and sweetness that are incomparable. And you know, as you read these letters and get to know Thérèse's aunt Céline Guerin, her uncle Isidore's wife, you really, you can't help but really come to appreciate her. She really does seem to have been a very, very warm and loving and good person. And a deep friendship developed between Céline and her sister -in -law Céline. Marie, that's the oldest of the daughters, says that she doesn't know her to have any faults. And neither do I. I find that Isidore, in spite of all his problems and business struggles and so forth, is very happy to have such a wife. It would take a long time to tell you her virtues, but that will be for later. I assure you that I love her as much as a sister. She seems to feel the same way and shows my children an almost maternal affection. As I mentioned, in fact, Céline would ask Céline, her sister -in -law, to take over the maternal role after her own untimely death. She showed them every possible attention and did everything to make our lives pleasant. If I seemed worried, she looked at me with sympathy to seem to hurt her. Marie quickly came over to say to me, Mama, please look more cheerful. My aunt thinks you're sad, and she's hurt over it. I answered her, leave me alone. I can't do better. And I reproached myself for it. One day we were in the countryside, so they take them out into the country outside of Lisieux. I went there reluctantly to accompany the others. Then we settled in a meadow to rest, and during this time my sister -in -law secretly went to prepare a snack for us, secretly because Céline just doesn't want her putting herself out. When she brought it to us, I was so upset at the trouble she went to. You know, every year you see this, her sister -in -law sends these wonderful gifts around Christmas time for the children, and every year Céline responds the same way. She thanks her. She's so grateful, but you shouldn't have done it. It bothers her when people put themselves out for her in any way like this. I was so upset at the trouble she went to that I was far from showing appropriate gratitude. She contented herself with laughing at my apparent coldness because she knows Céline, oh well, I'm truly not very pleasant. So she's very matter -of -fact about herself this way. She never puts herself on a pedestal. Fortunately, I'm still willing to admit it, exclamation point, but if I don't know how to show signs of affection, this is why I chose this letter. I feel the sentiments inside. I believe I wish for my brother's prosperity more than mine. Her brother was a pharmacist, and he had a pharmacy, he had started a drug business, and they were struggling at times. In fact, Céline and Louis would help him even financially. Later things went very well for Isidore.

When I had the very fortunate problem of how do I disambiguate? That's why I used my middle name because I know it was one of the things I asked the first thing if I absolutely rose and fell, I'm like, I never thought I would be able to ask this question of a publisher, but now that I have one, how do I do that? And he's like, use your middle name. I'm like, duh. So I'm out there and all of those LinkedIn, Instagram, all of those will link you to my, I have a website on that website.

Well, Natalie Marie Dunbar, I want to thank you so, so much for coming on the show. I think if there's anything that people can get from this is that you have such a, a passion and a curiosity for content strategy and how it just works within not the only the digital world, but in our world at large. And that's something that, especially as more and more content gets created, you know, we talked about AI and all that sort of stuff as more and more content gets created. I am drawn back to what you said about, like, it still is going to need humans. Like it's still going to need people in order for content to really thrive and to have good content strategy. And I hope that people get a chance to pick up the book. Like I said, go put it in the show notes, but I'm so glad that we have you to be someone that is like a practitioner of this to help kind of steer us all in the right way. So thank you so much for coming on the show. I appreciate it. Thank you so much. I appreciate it being here and chatting with you. Big, big thanks to Natalie Marie Dunbar. And of course, thanks to

"And she had created this platform called Curvy Yoga. Hello. And one thing led to another and I was consuming her content and like practicing along on her website. And I remember getting an email saying, you know, I'm going to open up yoga teacher training in the coming months. And if you're interested in an email and I sat there and I thought about it, I'm like, well, this is probably not going to be my career career, but I'm already doing the marathon coaching thing. Ironically, one of the ways that I would try to help people get into their bodies more for marathoning, I bought a yoga anatomy book because it makes sense to me. And lo and behold, that was one of the books that I had to buy because I did sign up for that yoga teacher training. I did my $200 training and it helped me to be not only a better marathon coach, but when I got back into the corporate world, it made me aware of the fact that working 10, 12, 14 hour days was not doing my body any justice. It was not psychologically safe. It was not tenable for years and years at a time. I'm still good for, you know, a 17 hour launch, but sometimes it'll take that long. But yeah, I just started to be more and more aware of how I wasn't being kind to my body and still expecting to put out the hours of work that I was doing from week to week and day to day. And so, yeah, so that focus now, ironically, as I am going out and speaking about my book and talking about the importance of content as an asset and that kind of thing, the talks that I'm doing now are more focused on a chapter that I talk about maintenance and specifically what it takes to keep a strong practice core, focusing on the health and wellness of the practitioners who make the practice what it is. The thing about content strategy is there's a part in the book where I'm talking about I think I call it three persistent principles.

"Owned by AT &T. So we have telecom regulation. They got your health care, which is a whole nother ball of wax as far as regulatory compliance. You've got, you know, your government, different government agencies that have their own compliance from agency to agency. I think that's been a common theme for me up until, well, I want to say up until now, because the e -comm definitely has its own regulatory exposure as well. But I think those experiences helped me learn to balance business goals, user needs, voice and tone, all while being very mindful of, you know, staring clear of violating any regulatory compliance issues. I think that's the common thread. I didn't go seeking them, but I think that's kind of explains the trajectory a little bit where there's a common thread for me. Now, you know, you mentioned earlier in this interview about how, you know, you're doing all this traveling and stuff. Of course, you know, you're, you know, promoting the book and everything. You're doing your day job and you're really big about prioritizing your own well -being alongside your work. And you do yoga. You're a yoga teacher. Is that right? Yoga instructor? That is right. I'm on hiatus right now because of the book thing. I've been a little busy traveling. But yeah, somewhere back in 2005, I decided that it would be a really fun experience to do a half marathon. And you may say, what the heck does that have to do with yoga and wellness? Well, I've said that a lot because I was going to do one half marathon. I was going to walk that thing and I was going to be done. And I was raising money for charity. Yeah, 10, 11 years later, I was still doing it. And I had become a marathon coach. It was a side thing. I was there for a volunteer organization. But what I found was, I was not only coaching, I was also, I use the term racing very loosely, but I did finish every marathon or half marathon that I ever started.

"I totally get that because the time it takes to put that stuff together, at least on our end, was we didn't have time to really talk to the client or talk to the business about what it is they need. It's like you get whatever is in that packet and you just have to make it work. It almost felt like a reality show design challenge. Like you just you're presented with such limited information, then you have to throw it together and then it gets sent over to QA. And, you know, once it's out of my hands, I'm like onto the next because it was basically just a never ending stream of sites. And honestly, the time that I spent there is what inspired me to quit and start my own studio because I was like, wait a minute, I can do these websites like the back of my hand. I'm going to take this this little framework that I created and I'm going to go and try to serve some clients, which is what I ended up doing. Excellent. Yeah, that's awesome. Now, you've worked with, you know, numerous brands over your career, just to name a few, the Food and Drug Administration, Anthem, Kaiser Permanente, et cetera. When you look back at those experiences, like what really sticks out to you the most? That's a favorite question of mine, because what I find that is the common thread between government agencies like FDA and CTP, Center for Tobacco Products, et cetera, and places like yellowpages .com, which was owned by AT &T and Anthem. Highly regulated. They were all highly regulated. You've got your yellowpages .com owned by AT &T. So we have telecom regulation.

"Yeah, that was what our department was doing and making like a ton of web pages, like one -page sites, three -page sites, five -page sites. In hindsight, I liked the experience. It was a good experience because it just taught me how to design quicker in that way. Like you have to take the information, basically you go into, oh, what was the thing called? IceBlue, I think was the name of the software that we use. You go into IceBlue, you pick the company you're doing it for, you have to go and pull like a physical packet of where the salesperson has talked to the business. I remember that. And like there's a physical packet of like the text that you have to put in and maybe their logo that you have to scan. And our department had one scanner for 30 designers and you had to scan the logo so you could use that, maybe trace it in Illustrator. And like, you'd have to put all this together into a website, usually within a matter of hours, like one -page sites. I think the limit that they had us at was three hours and then five -page sites. No, one -page sites were three hours, three -page sites were five hours. And then if it was five or more pages, basically the whole day, but like you were not meant to spend more than one day on building a site. And so because of that, even with a team of 30 designers, we were always behind. Like the managers were always yelling at us, like, why aren't you all getting more work done? It's like, we're designing three web pages, like full fledged web pages a day, design content, all that stuff, putting it together. It was a harrowing time. But I mean, I look back on it fondly because it did teach me, I think the utility of just like shortcuts and working fast and like not really having time to sort of mull on a decision for something. You just have to kind of put it out there and do it.

"But there's no way that my lived experience as a black woman of color, well, that was redundant in the digital space in technology. You are not going to find AI generated anything that's going to be able to relate my story the way that I can write or the way that maybe one of my Asian -American counterparts can share their stories and their lived experiences. I mean, it's just I mean, good on them for being upfront about it. But hey, yeah. Wow, that gave me chills. I'm like, yeah, that sounds like some like it's like some black mirror kind of shit. Like it's it's it's very sinister. Yeah, I mean, I've seen some stories and I mean, we'll get kind of back to talking more about about your work and everything, but I've seen some stories where, like, say, an influencer will like train a chat GPT model on like tweets or any sort of long form content and then use that in lieu of themselves, almost like a digital twin to generate content for them. And I'm wondering and I don't know, let me not even say that. I don't even want to put that out in the ether, but I feel like I could see a future where companies are trying to sort of mine content that's currently online, sort of like what chat GPT does now, and use that in some sort of weird regenerative fashion as Peretti was saying here to create, quote unquote, an authentic voice. Yeah, good luck with that, Peretti. I think the thing that comes to mind, too, and again, I have kind of stayed out of the like I can't ignore the AI conversation completely because it's it's coming after my work. It's not my work at my job. Let me just say that. Not my work, but just my discipline. The thing that I'm most passionate about. Yeah. You just can't get that kind of authenticity. I mean, at that point, then just like insert a chip into my brain and let's call it done. Yeah. You know, I mean, that's scary to me. The thing is, too, that I'm hearing is that a lot of what I guess people are finding from chat GPT or whatever other services there are out there is that there's still a lot of what is generated that that's not accurate. You know, attribution to, you know, I have not gone out and said, hey, chat GPT, who's Natalie Marie Dunbar? And like, what do they do or whatever? I know people have done that and been served up some very interesting information about things that they've never done in their life. So there's that. So you still need that checkers. You still need you still need human validation. And that's what I say about that. And, you know, you mentioned like there are these contractors that are working like in Africa and like in overseas places that are being paid like pennies on the dollar, basically, to be that human check, to be that moderation, which is I don't know. Really sinister to think about the fact that content is starting to go down that route. Yeah, but we're going to keep fighting to pull it back. Oh, yeah, I think so. And I think this is stick with the goal. I think this is, you know, the flavor of the season and folks are excited about it. And I think there's a lot to be like, I don't want to say afraid. You know, I would I would hesitate to think that this is the end all be all to like, we're bunch of content folks because we could just generate it from this thing. I think there's a lot of danger in that, but I think that also has to kind of come to fruition, hopefully, in not a horrible way. But yeah, yeah. So let's kind of, you know, switch gears here a little bit and learn more about you and your back story and how you came to be this this content strategy maven. You're currently in Pasadena, California. Is that where you're from originally? No, I was born in Texas in a town called Port Arthur.

"What does sort of a typical day look like for you? Oh, wow. I have my day job. I am in a lot of meetings. I set aside quiet time for myself to actually be heads down to actually do content work. I think the meeting thing is just kind of, you know, part of that is working virtually and are remote and just kind of like trying to get all the meetings in, especially across time zones. We're lucky enough to have a very talented team that works, you know, from all points of the U .S. So that's a thing. But, you know, sometimes there's the occasional 730 in the morning meeting for me. I've had, well, not in my current work, but at a past job. I remember being on calls at six o 'clock in the morning. Not always, though, thank goodness. But yeah. And then after that, I try to take a break, whether I'm taking a walk outside or just hanging out with my pups, connecting with, you know, family here in the house, you know, kind of recouping, touching down on like the stuff that makes you human. And then I usually spend an hour or two doing something having to do with the book. By extension, you know, maybe looking at speaking opportunities, calendaring, trying to figure out, oh, is it time for me to send out my newsletter, which I need to write myself a note to self. There are days sometimes that I'll tell you that, you know, I'll start with the day job at eight, eight thirty nine. And I'm still going at nine o 'clock at night on my other stuff. Like I close one laptop and then open the other. It depends. I've had to put a limit on how many meetups and different things that I sign up for because there's so much good knowledge out there and so many different organizations that I've found as a result of the pandemic. Like I'm able to attend the meetup that's hosted in Australia, you know, because I can do it on my computer.

Right, first up, Tanya asking Shaq to apologize to Tom for taking things too far the other night. Green flag. I agree. Green flag. She told him what to do. It was the right thing. She kind of put him in his place and let him know took it too far. And that's a good, that's a good sign from her, because usually some guys just let it lie. And she was soft with it. She was like, I'm going to apologize now. Yeah, exactly. It's very like, you know, babe, I think this is what you should do. Yeah, she did it well. Yeah, she did. Right, next up, we've got Kai wearing leopard print boxers and an orange jump part when sanam was wearing her sexiest underwear. Green flag. Kind of a green flag? Funny, right? Yeah. And it's like, they're cute, man. And it's like they didn't try too hard and they still had a really good time, and she was, she was like, okay. That's too good. I feel like guys don't really have much choice when it comes to being. What are you going to do? Oil yourself up. That's a bit crazy. Oh my God, that's awful.

Right, next, we've got Jesse hinting to will that she wants to be his girlfriend. Oh. Oh, I'm gonna go. What kind of makes green and red when you mix them together? You have an orange. You can't make green. Amber. Are you coming green? No. It's not a primary color. Yes, you can. No, you can't. It's a it's a good debating yourself. You can't make cream.

But in the action, yeah, man ask. Don't ask, don't get. Yeah, you don't know if you don't get sometimes just like, okay, today's video, my boyfriend, we're boyfriend and girlfriend now. Yeah. Yeah, I don't think it's that. I think again, it's all about delivery. Absolutely. But I do think it's a green flag in just asking for where we are. What's going on? Because I think it's very important to be on the same page. And to know what you're heading to, because if we're not about to be in relationship, I'm off. Yeah, bye, you know? Yeah. Cool. Next we've got handcuffing yourself to one another. Bold. That's a green neon green flat. I don't know if you need both hands. No, but you've got one hand. One hand, yeah. And then one hand.

And in that place, in the villa, you can not take yourself too seriously. Sam would like that because he likes making his own fun. So that's right up here. These are serious slapping as well. I do it all the time. I do it all the time. So I'm on board with it. Cool. Next, we've got Tanya asking Shaq to suck come on, Sam. No, we had this conversation when we watched it last night. Sam doesn't suck toe. I'm so disappointed. Yeah. He has. He did it in the villa as well. You're crazy. He puts my whole foot in his mouth. Corny feet. I got nice toes.

One time. Oh my God. You took so long to get ready. We were late because of her. And I was like, thanks for coming, guys. I feel like you have to be a special kind of person to see me and die me like post argument. I feel like everyone can feel it. Like if we're like drew just had an argument, everyone knew about it. Oh yeah, you can tell the energy is palpable. But yeah, I'm probably out there as well. I'd say we get over arguments quicker, I think. Yeah. But also, if it blows up, if it blows up, then I always have to apologize. Really? Not because she tells me to, just because otherwise, on the kind of person, I'm like, I'll rise to it really quickly, but I get over things really fast. And so she might, I always try and leave the room, and so I'm a chase on. I locked her up. And he left, and I was like, no, don't walk away from me. I'm literally like, you can't come in 'cause I was like, I know what's going to happen. If we're not going to get worse. Because I'm a Leo. She's a sad. And we're not going to stop. Yeah. Because dictates that I have to win. Yeah. You're a chaser. Yeah. Because you don't want to feel like you're apologizing. So let's just cool down because I know I fully know that whatever the argument is, give me 20 minutes. I'll be over it. I walk out the room and literally be like, oh, you're so annoying, but it's fine. So that's really that's a really good question. I need to but I have to decompress. I need the time. If I don't, and I can't decompress, if we go off. Really? That's so interesting. I have to run away. What India said? Chases are the worst. You can't get away. It's like a good one. And I'm chasing you because I'm like, okay, cool. You want to get angry? Let's continue. Get fucking. Get away from me. It's like a game of snake. So the least sexual chemistry is given to Ron and Lana. Who didn't seem to mind as they don't like PDA. I feel like Lana said about someone who is quite loving. Loving. Yeah. Even like early on when they were all getting to know each other and they were like, I feel like it would be more kissy, they're a bit more like touchy. It was a bit more. Is he touching her ears? I think it's very I think it's very important to touch a partner. It doesn't have to be sexual, but it's very important to just let your partner know that they're still around. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Even if you're in like a when they're having parties, if you're in a crowd today, people are like what boss you and just grazes your back, you're like, okay. If you're India doesn't get that, it's email. In your and the team would like to know why you're feeling heartless. Heartless human being that you don't even want to give me kissing the forehead. It's just ridiculous. I'm literally like if it's gone a couple hours, but we've literally knock kiss me all day. That's why I'm like, yeah. What's going on? You don't love me anymore? Yeah. Not even touched me. All day. Yeah, that's me. Do you know what I do a lot? I do know. Do you kids do kiss our fasting in the morning? I give her a nice spot. Okay, that's your fault. You kiss her to say, when you say bye. Yes, but I do a nose pop first. And

"Sam, are you ready for a recoupling? Something tells me it's going to be a corker. Yep, there's something spicy in the air. Speaking of spicy, I'm going to have to meticulously plan tonight's takeaway. I hear you picking the right takeaway is no joking matter. I sent you for me. Never fails. What should go to? Chicken ball tea, garlic naan, basmati rice, samosas, star obviously. That's a solid order right there. What about you? Cormorant ships? Never, chapatis, and maybe a lentil doll on the side. We should double date with an order like that. Love island FIFA. Pop it on pakoras for everybody. Get stuck in to love island with justy. Joss as we thought the drum had cooled down, the islanders found out what the public think of them, and let's just say it didn't go swimmingly. Once you expect mate, what I will say though is that I am so here for it, as well as the drawing we also saw another couple head to the hideaway, so now I'm in Kai. They're just very cute. Aren't they just? And as usual, we're going to talk all about the goings on in the villa. Plus, we've got the return of one of our favorite games, red flag, green flag. Sounds like a great episode to be honest, so let's get to it. Welcome to the pods. It's love island the morning after with me India polar. And me, I'm Thompson and today we are joined by radio presenter who is obsessed with love island, but is she as obsessed as me, I wonder. Yes, we're joined by capital Shane and Marie. Hello. Welcome to the more Shayna. Hi guys. I'm good. Thanks for having me guys. I feel like you guys have met before. Oh, we have. Yeah, yeah. We were running as well. I know. Let me talk about events. And I said, a link up. It's something called every time. Do you know what sucks? I'm honestly India's like loser mate. I don't know anybody. You got that friend. I've never met anyone. And every time someone comes on the poet, and she has to introduce me. This is my loser, Frank Sam. So you know, it's like when your mom says, take your brother and you're like. You're my cool friend, Sam, you one of the coolest, you know? You are cool online. Very cool. I mean, okay, wait, no, we're gonna go. I will take that. But you'll call on 9. So like everyone knows you're already, and then now you're just meeting all of India's other friends and cool friends. And now you're caught in real life too. I want to go to one of these events. You will go to. Well, Shane on. If you could go on a night out with one boy and one girl from the villa, who would it be and why? One boy in one girl. Yeah. Okay, I think I'd go on a night out with Sammy. Okay. When you hang around good-looking girls, they make you look good-looking as well. You get them for free. Very good place. You'll be in the VIP slide at 9 privilege. Yeah, pretty fast. That's what I'm saying. So I think Sammy would be a good time. And she's also very alone. And a boy, I think will. Will looks like a good night out. Like just a lot of fun. Maybe not like, I feel like will would thrive more in like a drink up more of a night out. I feel like if you had like a house party, he'd be a good time. The good time. I don't know, I think I could say one night out. I see both to be fair. But he'd be in the middle of the dance floor. Oh yeah. And then the middle, blowing a whip. You know? Like, you know I'm terribly white chicks. I literally as I was saying blow whistle. Sweatshirt. Yeah. That would be will. Do you know I couldn't go with any one of the boys? Because they're all 6 5 and there is nothing worse. I'll go over on. You can't stand next to Tom. That would definitely be like taking out your little brother. I'm gonna be honest, we're gonna meet him at some point, and I'm gonna hunk his waist. Last night, the hideaway opened once more and this time Kai and Senna were lucky enough to get some alone time. Am I the body chocolate? Oh, I love it. I want you to leave that on you now. Can carry away you, aren't you? Is it not going on? Do you know what I love about that? Is on love it too much. I'm not like, oh, do you know what I love about that? I like about that. The fact that outside the hideaway, she's really sweet. She's like really proper. She's sitting there, I don't want to get anyone's business. I'm just like, I'm just a nice girl. I'm not about that. She's really good-looking, and then she gets into her, which is like, right, chocolate on body. Let's go. I love that. And she was in like some teeny tiny lingerie. She was dropping it low for him as well. If I was saying, it's like something lady in the street birthday. But a freak in the sheer. I mean, it's quite nice that they were chosen. I'm quite happy that they were shown. And they deserved it. Could have been early up, but you know what, good things happen to those who wait, I guess. Yeah. You know? Nice stuff. Big facts. Yeah. But how important is it for a new couple? Because they are quite new to get some alone time and just to see if because you get along in a personal way, which obviously is the most important, but then you've got to have that physical vibe. And it looks like they did. Yeah. I think it's so interesting. I don't know how, because I feel like when you're dating somebody outside in the normal world, you see them by themselves with friends, in a restaurant, like a nice of the waiter. Are they going to be like all these little things that you see in the real world? And then if you were in your in the villa, you're like around people all the time. And then when you get a loan, it's like, oh, do I still like you? Can we still? Can we still chat? Yeah. But they're so fancy you, is it? Yeah. It's a big deal. It's a big hair, but they actually look like they actually got them really well. And they had a little, they had a very good time. It seemed like. That was lube. I saw that for the lubrication. Lubrication. I guess they do like each other. They get on wow and it was a good time for that. On the art of seduction, if you were in the villa and you got to go to the hideaway with Zara, what would you do to seduce her? Go on spill the beans. Bring in a cat. That's great. No, I would, what would I do? Scratch that. What would I do? I would you know what? What I really want to do for it is I want to start dressing up. What do men dress up as in this? I've never dressed up. It's always been the other way around if it's ever happened. So far. And I'm not lucky enough that it is always happens, but whenever I get lucky enough, I just think it'd be quite fun to look, but I really like the idea of a role play. I mean, where's the booze? That's hilarious. And I don't know, I feel like I'd want to actually like do a scene. Then do you stay in character the whole time? Yeah, I think so. I think I'd lie to you. Mommy and daddy. Oh, so he's not going to let me live the sound. A good one is that sometimes I'll text Amy in email form. Yes. So like, I'll text him and I'll be like, just speaking in corporates, I'll be like, dear mister hope. On behalf of India, her and the team would like to know what time dinner will be ready today. Kind regard. Love that. That's cute. That way. That's really cute. But yeah, it's fun, it's refund to try guys. Anyways, I do a dance as well. I do it. Like a sexy what song will be playing to your dance? That's a great golf. How many boys do men? Oh. You know, you'll make love to you, like you won't be too. You're giving, is it genuine? Is it genuine that thing? I don't know, I can see that would be good for you. I've tried actually, I've done a strip tease to pony before. How did that go? Do you know what I got laughed out of the room? No, but then I came back in the room. This show themselves. And we just didn't do the dance. Scratch that would go again. Well guys, I mean, a last night we saw the islanders play a game called a

"Metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds. I hope everyone is doing wonderfully and just as pump for this week's episode as am as i'm sure you've all guest by this point. I'm a gigantic and unapologetic nerd. Nothing wrong with it. But i love to learn especially about subject matter that i know very little about so. There are some things that i kind of gravitate to definitely the humanities. I love history. I love the rt stuff but such things like math physics science. I'm not exactly too familiar. So there's like such a thrill for me to learn more about that sort of subject matter and it's truly that initial expiration period. That i just find so much fun enjoying. I really enjoy it but the individual will be learning about this week. I'm quite sure. Shares the same sentiments in terms of the pursuit of knowledge this individual dedicated their life to learning and discovery for the benefit of their fellow man in particular in the area of the sciences during this time period this individual had to defy cultural norms and excelled in areas and academic circles that traditionally were notoriously hard to break into. This person didn't allow their societal constraints to keep them from achieving and exceeding their goals through dedication determination and an obsession to learn and to know. This person broke the glass ceiling and took science as a whole to new em- previously impossible heights. So this week will be covering the bright's the brainy the brilliant marie curie now. I thought i'd known the basics of marie curie story but surprisingly. I had no idea that marie curie was a name sheet assumed later on in life. Marie curie was born. Maria sklodowska on november seventh eighteen. Sixty seven. Marie was born in warsaw. Which is now considered poland and was the youngest of five siblings. I thought this next fact was a great example. As to why childhood is so impactful in matt is that marines. Parents were both teachers unsurprisingly. Marie showed extraordinary ability early on in her childhood. Marie was reported as having an incredible sense of memory and recall as well as a voracious curiosity throughout her academic career. Marie was always an accomplished student and was passionate about succeeding in her studies. Marie was an elite student in eagerly consumed new knowledge when marie became of age and although she was more than qualified she was unfortunately not allowed to attend university during this time period where maria was growing up. Higher education was only afforded to men so women were not allowed to attend. Marie wasn't allowed to participate in formal schooling. But that doesn't mean. She gave up her passion for learning quite the contrary. Marie would join a secret group of students who attended clandestine classes yes. Marie had to attend an undercover learning program in order to continue her education. Like these students dedicated okay. They were not playing while. Maria was still learning with our unconventional education. She longed to complete in receive her formal degree after discussing it with a sister who shared similar goals in ideals about education. The two girls came up with a master plan and honestly big ups the sisterlove because while marie would work in pay for her sister to attend university overseas to earn her degree after her sister received her degree they would switch roles in her sister would support marie while she attended school and while her sister was attending school. Marie worked different jobs for a teacher to governess all the while. Never ceasing her own studies. Marie would continue to self study subjects like chemistry in math while she worked to put her sister through school around eighteen ninety one after her sister had completed her degree. It was marie term. Marie would travel to paris enroll in school and become completely engrossed in her studies. Marie also began to follow the teachings of famous researchers in physicists. Now this roads education wasn't necessarily without any downsides or negatives. Although maria was pursuing her dreams of receiving her formal education degree she was not on firm financial footing by any means receiving the bare minimum to complete her schooling. Marie was suffering at home from malnutrition reportedly while pursuing her education. Marie survived primarily on buttered bread in t- which to me just makes murray's accomplishments academic accomplishments even more impressive such a meager sustenance in still performing at the top of her class in eighteen. Ninety three marie would receive her first degree in physical science. Then just a year later. Marie would receive her second degree in math so murray went from being rejected from university to earning not just one but two degrees but this would just be the beginning of the incredible academic legacy of marie curie in eighteen ninety four. Marie would meet someone who would become her life partner in more ways than one right after graduating with her second degree. Marie was introduced to pierre curie. When marie met pierre she was working in a laboratory. Completing a commission study on steel and his magnetic properties they were described as the perfect pair as both amazing partners in marriage and science. Marie and pierre would get married on july twenty fifth eighteen ninety five. While completing her research and experiments marie would discover too significant elements polonium and radium. She would also begin to study radiation more closely following the discovery. These new elements now. I just wanted to emphasize. She discovered elements that previously were perceived to not even exist. The periodic table at the time was pretty much a static thing. Nobody expected to make any additions or changes to the table. But marie discovered not just one but two new elements after studying. The work of fellows physicist named henry belk well. Marie was inspired to research. The findings even more extensively. This intern inspired.

It was after all the commotion with the stroke in katie's illness and hp's turrets and there are a lot of other things that happen. During this year we lost his dad unexpectedly and there are some other family things that happen. That were pretty traumatic so it was a rough a rough time for all..
