Fr. Jim Martin on The Colbert Report: He’s the Show’s New Chaplain

posted by Beyond Blue

I’m going to do a little name dropping here and say that my FRIEND Jim Martin has become Stephen Colbert’s chaplain. This is his THIRD appearance on The Colbert Report, and Jim invited me to be part of the audience! Unfortunately, because I am practicing my “simplification” practices for Lent (and because I’m broke), I couldn’t go. But here’s his appearance for all of you to watch. Having famous friends is so cool.

I tried to embed the video here, but it’s not working, so your going to have to visit the Colbert website to see Fr. Jim’s segment on the topic of turning to God in hard economic times. To go there click here.

Therese:
That’s wonderful! I have to watch the Coal-bear Ray-pour more often.
I realize Amtrak isn’t cheap up and down the East Coast even for a day trip, but you shouldn’t have let Lent stop you, at least. You had priestly dispensation, after all ;-P
Cheers, Larry

When Faith Turns Neurotic
When does reciting scripture become a symptom of neurosis? Or praying the rosary an unhealthy compulsion?
