@tigerJas ,

Thank you

I am in Australia, and want to reach out and say Thank you to Fr Mike and Jeff, and to their team involved in bringing the Bible in a Year podcast to us. I’ve tried to read the Bible before but found it difficult. I thank God for blessing all involved with bringing the Bible in a Year podcast to my life. God Bless.

So so so grateful from a Sydney based Australian

Thank you so much for such a life enhancing, indeed life changing, podcast. Fr Mike is just a true delight… my whole family really find his reading, prayers, insight and teaching so engaging and uplifting. I listen daily while I walk the dog, and although I am many days behind schedule, I SO look forward to my time alone to listen.
We are in Sydney, Australia, and my heart lifts as the time comes towards the end of the day when I think I can get my iphone and earphones out with the dog lead! Bravo bravo bravo Fr Mike and Jeff Cavins! On several occasions I have been walking, listening, but covered in goosebumps from my excitement at what Fr Mike is teaching.
I never, ever, understood it before, but the Bible is indeed the greatest Love story ever told.
We pray for Fr Mike and the BIAY community every night before we start dinner. Thank you again, and a treasured priest would say…. “What a gift!!!”
