Ask Fr. Josh is the podcast where I hear you out and do my best to help you navigate the tricky times in life when our Catholic Faith doesn’t give you an easy “fill-in-the blank” answer. On this show, we’ll listen to one another, problem solve together, and ultimately entrust everything to our Lord. If this is your first time tuning in, here’s how the show goes: Each episode, I'll address three to four of your questions. I’ll cover everything from Catholic teaching to moral dilemmas to relationship advice. I'm not perfect, and I can’t guarantee that my advice is going to make things easy, but I'll do my best to share what I've learned during my time as a priest, pastor, and friend.

    Christ Entered Into Our Mess

    This week in a Christmas special, Father Josh encourages us to pray with the Scriptures read during the Christmas Masses. As we listen to the genealogy of Jesus on Christmas Eve, he reminds us that Jesus came from a family of sinners and that Christ came to save all, no matter how great or how little the sinner.

Thank you Fr. Josh.

There’s so many questions I have about things in life in general that apply to being Catholic. Thank you for answering so many with such clarity. Thank you for not being afraid to speak the truth. Especially when it comes to evil in the world. Seems like no one wants to talk about that. You are such a gift to all of us. Will continue to pray for you and your ministry. All the best to you Fr. Josh. May God continue to bless you on your journey to become a Saint. Roxana
