A Holy Mess

A Holy Mess

Fr. Paul Houlis is, in no way, His Holiness, but he sure is, “His HoliMess.” He knows from personal experience that one’s life can truly be a beautiful, holy, mess. Are we not all, in some way, “A Holy Mess?” After all, holiness is messy! We live in a messy world, and God entered the depths of its “messiness” and made it “holy”. He can do the same for one’s life! So tune in, and bring your mess with you. You’ll find out that God doesn’t just clean the mess of one’s life but uses it! He turns our mess into a beautiful message of hope…if we let Him. Join “His HoliMess” for a clean, but very messy podcast. Fr. Paul Houlis is a priest of the Archdiocese of Newark, in New Jersey. Before entering the seminary, he pursued a career in stand-up comedy and acting in New York City. His life was flipped upside down shortly after the tragic events of 9/11/2001. Faced with the close reality of death, he starting asking questions about life. He soon found that true life was found in living a life for others, not just for self. "If you get me through this I'll dedicate my life to helping your children," he cried out to GOD. The rest is history. Fr. Paul desires to use his love for comedy and entertainment to help bring others joy. After all, the Christian person must be a person of joy. For GOD truly is a JOY to the world....even in it's mess.

Disability Advocacy & The LEGO Church Project w/J.M. Kraemer
“If God existed, you wouldn’t have cerebral palsy.” This is what A Holy Mess’s latest guest was recently told. Meet J.M. Kraemer, Disability Advocate and founder of the Lego Church Project, where Catholicism, Disability, and LEGO meet. If there is one thing J.M. knows for sure, it’s that no matter what challenge or difficulty one faces, God can still use your talents, and he’s allowing God to do just that with him. So join His HoliMess and J.M. to discover how The Church can do more to help persons with disabilities and learn about the very cool ministry of the Lego Church Project. You’ll want to see these magnificent LEGO churches that J.M. builds.

Catholic Dad Of Nine: A Fool’s Errand? W/Matt D’Antuono.
Aug 23 2023
Catholic Dad Of Nine: A Fool’s Errand? W/Matt D’Antuono.
Matt D’Antuono was a beer-drinking college frat rugby player nicknamed “Tank Top” who didn’t care about his Catholic faith. Soon enough, he put down the beer and picked up the bible. He became anti-Catholic, but a search for the truth led him “back to Rome.” He’s now a brilliant Catholic apologist and philosopher. He has two bachelor's and two master’s degrees and is working on his doctorate. Oh, by the way, he’s also a public high school physics teacher! He’s an associate of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and writes for the National Catholic Register. He has authored several books on philosophy, including A Fool’s Errand. Yet most of all, he’s a loving, faithful, devout husband to his wife Emily and the father of their nine children (four adopted) who live on a hobby farm while homeschooling. Reading his resume is so exhaustive that it makes you want to nap, but hearing and seeing him tell his story perks you so up that you’ll be hanging on his every word.

Jason Jones: Saving The Most Vulnerable.
He was once a pro-life atheist who intentionally set out to end abortion AND destroy the Catholic Church. This is just one reason why Jason Jones is, without a doubt, the most fascinating man Fr.

He’s known best for being president of the Human-Rights Education and Relief Organization (H.E.R.O.), known for its two main programs, The Vulnerable People Project and Movie to Movement.  In 2006, Jones was an Executive Producer of "Bella," which won several film industry awards, most notably the People's Choice Award at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. He is currently in Hawaii, helping the most vulnerable victims of the destruction of Lahaina, Maui, caused by the recent wildfires.

Aug 9 2023
Theology of the BARBIE, w/Susan & Emily.
A.K.A., Barbie & The Theology of the Body Catholics and Conservatives are trashing the movie Barbie and telling people to not see it, but should an excellent opportunity to take themes from the movie and attempt to evangelize/catechize the masses of fanatical fans of this current cinema phenomenon be passed up? We think not! Join Fr. Paul Houlis, Emily Appledorn, and Susan Godeaux for a Holy Mess of a movie review of Barbie as seen through the lens of the Theology of the Body.  CAUTION, there will be spoilers!!!    Themes discussed: What Am I Made For? Creator & Creature. Perfectionism. Beauty. Barbie/Ken & Adam/Eve. “The Real World” & Historical/Fallen Man. Wanting to be seen, loved, and desired. Body Image. Not feeling “enough.” Objectivity & Lust. Gender and Genitals. Patriarchy and Feminism. The reality of dying, and sooooooo much more!  Plus, Fr. Paul shares personal stories of his past that were triggered by watching and talking about the film.     RESOURCE: As per Emily’s pitch at the end of episode, an excellent source for women and couples struggling with infertility: https://popepaulvi.com/?fbclid=IwAR0EozXi2YhXEgr2h79j3ZxFeJN92G76E5a3mqLP_cGC7lKO10EVkHNvBoE_aem_AaZrABH_NADyxfIVcRaUNy6ZoiSLWSLuhb-a253iX4sOOAcjqqRW-7_yxIk3VDNrtLs https://naprotechnology.com/?fbclid=IwAR1NasR0nWuGRcjt3TheI_oeE76xRxxgFwkn3Hexb1WR9ZXdXPylDzptttw_aem_AabVGxwr2OAxWwM6q4f7D6Mdgp1FvQ0a-bYJ-jEIPhjpGGN_O8W5DyNy9fFWIQlH31kTo contact Emily: Emily@stannefertilitycarecenter.orgTo contact Susan: susangodeaux@gmail.comPlease download, subscribe, rate, review, and share this episode and podcast. Email His HoliMESS for questions, requests, bookings, etc., at hisholimesspodcast@gmail.com.  Featuring music by Mike Mangione.

The ExNunOnTheRun (Marilis Pineiro).
She used to work for Archbishop Vigano at the Vatican Embassy but that has nothing to do with why she once yelled at Pope Francis to his face while eating with him. (LOL) Those two events in her life alone may lead you to believe why she is now the "ExNunOnTheRun," but it's not what you think. She's more Catholic than ever and you don't want to get in her way. Well, actually you do, because she'll bring you to where she's running to! Welcome Marilis Pineiro to A Holy Mess podcast! Aside from being an "ex-nun" who used to work in, and for, The Vatican, Marilis is currently the Legislative and Diplomatic Relations Liaison for The Vulnerable People Project, headed by film producer, author, activist, podcast host, and human rights worker, Jason. Jones. Unapologetically Catholic, with a great influence on her @exnunontherun instagram account, Marilis stands up for the most vulnerable, using her gifts to bring their voices to the forefront.

Part 2 w/Tyler on L.G.T.B.Q.-ism To Catholicism
Jun 23 2023
Part 2 w/Tyler on L.G.T.B.Q.-ism To Catholicism
In this follow-up episode to hearing Tyler's journey from L.G.T.B.Q.-ism to Catholicism, Tyler and Fr. Paul focus on how best to minister to those with same-sex attraction who feel abandoned and neglected by The Church while at the same time staying true to God's plan for human sexuality. Tyler also challenges faithful Church members who speak the truth but without charity. Some questions/topics covered in this episode: How can The Church do a better job serving people with same-sex attraction? What does Tyler think of Fr. James Martin's ministry to the L.G.T.B.Q. Community.? What are P.R.I.D.E. Masses, and why do they exist? Why should people with same-sex attraction remain faithful to Church teaching, and how it's possible? Have others with same-sex attraction reached out to Tyler because of his witness and want to follow in his footsteps? Where is the work of Grace in Tyler's life? Why would a priest leave the priesthood to live a gay lifestyle? And much more! Tyler also answers questions submitted for him on social media.

From L.G.T.B.Q.-ism to Catholicism: Tyler’s Story (Part 1.)
Jun 16 2023
From L.G.T.B.Q.-ism to Catholicism: Tyler’s Story (Part 1.)
Tyler, a former active homosexual who was a devout, practicing member of the L.G.T.B.Q. Community, for over ten years, used to think that his sexual orientation (and acts) defined his entire identity. Yet, after having an encounter with Jesus Christ through The Catholic Church, he now claims that his true identity is that of a beloved child of God in Jesus Christ.  In this episode of A Holy Mess w/his Holimess, Tyler tells Fr. Paul his life story, how he went from knowing that he was attracted to the same sex at the age of four to having a radical reversion to Catholicism four years ago.  Listen to Tyler tell Fr. Paul what he found in the Catholic Church that the L.G.B.T.Q. Community couldn’t provide him with. What he does with his sexual desires now? His message to other same-sex attracted persons, as well as his message to the family members of those persons, and much, much more!  This is part one of a two-part episode that you won’t want to miss. You can follow Tyler on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/1ssacatholic/Faithful Catholic resources for L.G.T.B.Q.

Is Jesus Really Present In The Eucharist, And If So, How?
If you think Fr. Paul gave up having a wife and kids to serve a piece of bread and a cup of wine, then you’re nuts! Either Jesus Christ is truly present in The Eucharist, or he’s not. Catholics believe that he is, but why? How? In this episode, to prepare us for the Solemnity of The Body & Blood Of The Lord, His HoliMess is joined by friend Sam Chey and the coolest complete stranger Fr. Paul has ever met, Annie Sarlo, to talk about the REAL PRESENCE of Jesus Christ in Holy Communion; His Body, Blood, Soul, & Divinity. This is not just the most important topic A Holy Mess podcast has covered; it’s the most important PERSON; Jesus Christ himself! Sam Chey and Annie Sarlo are both Parish Renewal Specialists for the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  Sam, his wife, Eileen, and their four children from Northern New Jersey. Sam is a former youth minister with an MA in Theology from Immaculate Conception Seminary. He served on the Board of Lifenet, Inc.

The Power Of The Holy Spirit & YOU, w/Fr. Jeivi Hercules
May 22 2023
The Power Of The Holy Spirit & YOU, w/Fr. Jeivi Hercules
Did you know that the same power that caused the Big Bang, that created the first human beings, that caused a virgin to become pregnant, and that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you? Yes, you! (Or, if it doesn’t yet, it very quickly can!) In this episode of A Holy Mess w/His HoliMess, Fr. Jeivi Hercules, pastor of Our Lady Of Lourdes in Mountainside, N.J., and devoted lover of The Holy Spirit, joins Fr. Paul to talk all about the power of the Holy Spirit, the very spirit of the living God!  What, or Who exactly, is the Holy Spirit? What is Pentecost? What does it mean to live life “in the Spirit,” and how is it possible? What’s the difference between being baptized and being baptized “in the Spirit?” What is the Charismatic Renewal? Why does it get a rap by some in The Church? Join His HoliMess and Fr. Jeivi for the answers to these questions and many more.  Also, Fr. Jeivi and Fr. Paul share personal stories of how they were both physically healed by the power of the Holy Spirit. Email His HoliMESS for questions, requests, bookings, etc., at hisholimesspodcast@gmail.com.

Abby Johnson, Abortion, & The Unholy Mess Of Planned Parenthood(lessness).
May 4 2023
Abby Johnson, Abortion, & The Unholy Mess Of Planned Parenthood(lessness).
She saw a 13-week-old baby-in-the-womb fight for its life during an ultrasound-guided abortion, then watched it be murdered, and she’s never been the same since! In fact, Abby Johnson, former Director and Planned Parenthood Employee Of The Year was involved in over 22,000 abortions, but now she’s one of the world’s most potent, public, and fierce pro-life advocates!  Listen as Abby tells His HoliMess, Fr. Paul, the “behind-the-scenes” of how Planned Parenthood runs. Her life-changing experience of seeing that baby fight for its life in the womb. The fruitfulness of people praying outside abortion clinics. Her ministry that has helped 650 women and men leave the abortion industry who now fight for life in the womb and for women’s true rights. Why she converted to Catholicism, and much, much more.  “Nobody ever said abortion was pretty.” This is what Abby told her pro-life husband after their little daughter saw blood splattered on her mommy’s sneakers when she came home from work. The same can be said about this episode. Talking about the reality of abortion is never pretty, but talking about what God did with Abby’s life is undoubtedly beautiful!!!  Visit Abby’s website here: https://abbyj.com.

Transgenderism: A Compassionate, Loving, & Truthful Engagement w/Jason Evert.
Apr 27 2023
Transgenderism: A Compassionate, Loving, & Truthful Engagement w/Jason Evert.
What if you experience gender dysphoria? What if your child tells you that he or she is “trans”? Does surgery prevent suicide? Should I use their preferred pronouns? Are puberty blockers safe? Do some people have an intersex brain? How do I deal with my local school system indoctrinating my children? How can youth ministers, Catholic educators, and the Church as a whole respond to people in their community who identify as “trans?” What is the actual science, history, and psychology of the “gender issue?”          In his most recent book, “Male, Female, Other? A Catholic Guide to Understanding Gender,” Jason Evert explores all of these questions and many more, answering each with a very pastoral approach, remaining faithful to God and His Church.  Join His HoliMess and Jason for what is the most critical episode that A Holy Mess podcast has ever released, discussing the most crucial topic of our times. Please share this episode with everyone you know. Get a copy of “Male, Female, Other?” here: https://chastity.com/products/male-female-other/Visit Jason Evert’s website here: https://chastity.com.For many excellent references about gender topics, visit here: https://chastity.com/gender/Email His HoliMESS for questions, requests, bookings, etc., at hisholimesspodcast@gmail.com.
