Finally you guys are back! I love you guys and I want you to keep doing the podcast. I was scared that you had abandoned it. I guess it will leave me with a lot of episodes to listen to over the hiatus! Can't believe we have to wait almost 2 months!

Hey!
I just wanted to let you know that I recently discovered your podcast and absolutely love it. I really appreciate the hard work that you put in to the research of the mythology. And you always take notice of the little details. I'm sad to see that you haven't had a chance to update with the newer episodes. Hopefully you'll be back soon.

I had something to share with you-- that is an interesting speculation. At my church today (Catholic), the reading was Gabriel appearing to Mary announcing that she was going to bear a child. The sermon from the priest was all about angels... which perked my ears up because of Supernatural's Castiel.

The priest said that when Gabriel first appeared to Mary he spoke in Latin and she didn't understand. Confused he tried again, using even more Latin. She still didn't understand. Gabriel was getting frustrated and started to doubt God's choice in Mary. She was weak, she didn't seem like she could handle the burden. But he had to trust God's choice and tried Hebrew instead-- which she finally understood. (This totally reminded me of Castiel trying to speak to Dean, and Dean not being able to understand him twice as well-- only to have him appear in a familiar way)

Then the priest made mention of angels. He said that Mary first notice a bright light and looked away. According to our priest angels give off a light that is so bright that those who witness it have to look away. Because they are blinded by the light of God, they look away, thereby forcing them to listen to the message more fully. Again, I was very interested in this because as we know the writers presented Castiel (and Anna) as being a bright light in their true form. The light of God blinding those around them (Pam, the demons).

I thought this was particularly interesting and thought you might be interested in hearing this. Hopefully your podcast will return soon. You are definitely missed!!
