So yeah, I really love this priest. He baptized my firstborn son, renewed my faith in the orthodoxy of young priests and instilled in me a great love for the Exultet (about which you already know if you come here often). His name is Dan Scheidt, and I'm firmly convinced he's a modern day saint -- may God keep and preserve him.

This past Holy Week, he returned to my parish (where he was formerly associate pastor and has since left to shepherd a flock of his own) and delivered a wonderful meditation on the Exultet. Please do give it a listen through GodTube:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3


The Holy Week talks of my other priests, also wonderful in their own ways, may be found here:

Fr. Bob Lengenrich- a
very young priest (ordained late 2007) with a particular zeal for the faith and an energy level not to be matched:

Fr. Bill Schooler - a not-as-young priest, my pastor, and a man with a pastoral sensitivity like few others: http://www.stpius.net/index.cfm?load=news&newsarticle=71&page=1

    What an incredibly beautiful homily! The metaphors and word pictures painted by Fr. Scheidt were appropriate and easily understood, without being sentimental or insipid.
    I listened to the homily numerous times throughout a long sleepless night...and wake this morning feeling refreshed and aware of God's infinite love.
    Thank you to Fr. Scheidt, the videographer, GodTube and for posting this on your website.

    The talks on the Exultet are no longer available. Does anyone know where I can find them?
