I mean, they’re famous and get to speak at conferences and I get to sell their books. I even interviewed them when their first book came out. Apart from speaking, writing books and raising six kids, they …

Catholic Podcast Recommendation

Catholic Weekend Podcast

This morning I was listening to The Catholic Weekend podcast (referred to by the show hosts at SQPN.com as a weekly train wreck). Even though it isn’t a really structured podcast – more of a stream-of-consciousness conversation between 3+ people – they always have fascinating things to share.

The Magnificat Year of Faith Companion – A Tiber River Review

I have long been a fan of Magnificat's books. Their simple companions to praying the rosary or to the liturgical seasons of Lent or Advent have served as guides to helping me focus on prayer and meditation.

Seeking enlightenment and understanding? A Tiber River Review

I’d recommend The Way to anyone who is seeking answers, enlightenment, understanding, and isn’t afraid to take a look at the tough questions in life: What am I moving towards? What am I running from? And why? I expected the movie to be about major religious conversion, but it’s not. Actually, the movie only loosely touches on the religious and …
