For many Catholics, June can be a challenging month. Gay pride messages are saturated everywhere you look. What do you say to your children? How do we respond? What is God calling us to do? Listen in as we review the Catechism and share practical tips and resources to help you navigate.

What a treat! Today we are joined by Fr John Ludanha, a missionary priest from Africa. Some often struggle with God’s Plan. It might not be something we wanted or desired, but in the end, we see the beautiful plan our Father in Heaven has orchestrated for us. As Fr John shares his story, you will identify the twists and turns he experienced. Perhaps you can relate? Listen in and share it with others who might be struggling today.

Today we are joined by a special guest – Dr. Susan Selner-Wright. She is helping us to navigate the sensitivity around gender ideology. Susan dissects the Christian viewpoint as well as provides information about a website resource we can all use called “Person and Identity”. So much content is packed into this segment. Listen in, and share it with others!

Today we’re talking about our mission of evangelization, which just like Mary Magdalene, is a personal response to your encounter with Jesus. Have you thought about your encounter and how it can be shared with others? And if you haven’t experienced God’s love, now is your time!! No matter your past, God loves you deeply. And after you experience it, genuinely share your zeal with others.

What does it mean to register at your parish? Why is it valuable? Both Jo and John have been asked this question before, especially during sacramental prep.

Jo’s away, and so John took over the podcast! Today he has special guests – Paul and Colleen Lum Lung. They shared stories about their devotion to Divine Mercy, it’s significance and how families can celebrate it, as well as their memory of crashing Fr Michael Gaitley’s ordination party.

Do you pray the Stations of the Cross? How does the Lenten season help us to meditate on these prayers? In today’s episode we offer suggestions of where and how you can pray the Stations.

Welcome to our second season! We are in the season Lent, and it’s the perfect time to consider the sacrament of Confession, where we can be healed and can repair our relationship with God. Why do we as Catholics confess to a priest? What are the obstacles that challenge us? Today’s the day for you to encounter Christ’s mercy in Confession.

How many times as a parent do you use shortcuts? The alternative sounds exhausting and overwhelming, but it’s actually not. Venerable Fulton Sheen wrote a reflection on the three temptations of Jesus. In this episode we discuss how these temptations also affect parents. Some of us accept the temptation, which is actually a shortcut; we don’t want to have the hard conversations with our children. The easy button is not the solution. Join Jo and John for this great reflection in our Catholic faith.
