    20: Here's How You Can Make Advent Really Count This Year

    20: Here's How You Can Make Advent Really Count This Year

    I feel pretty bad for the click-bait-ey title.. but only slightly.
    This episode follows an article I found on The National Catholic Reporter titled A busy Catholic's guide to Advent: 10 tips for observing the season. This article contains some pretty simple but effective ways to elevate your Advent season and so I wanted to share them with everyone on the podcast. I added some tips of my own as well. Hope you enjoy!

    18: Loneliness in Young Adults

    18: Loneliness in Young Adults

    Hello everyone! We are so back! And it's good to be back. :D So good, in fact, that we let ourselves loose with the tangents on this one. I guess that'll be your one and only warning. :-P
    Your mission, if you so choose, is to join Marian and I on a fairly lengthy but fairly interesting topic: Loneliness in young adults.
    Loneliness can be a common occurrence for the young Catholic trying to figure out what we're doing in our lives. Why are we going through this? What can we do to get out of a funk? What is God trying to tell us? All this and more in this episode!
     
    DISCLAIMER time! We are not professional theologians or counselors on this podcast. If you're in a dark place, just know you're not alone. Marian and I are praying for anyone feeling especially lonely. Please reach out to someone. On the flip side, you may notice that someone needs help. Be the light of Christ to that person. There is also a 24/7 suicide prevention lifeline available: 1-800-273-8255.

    The desires in your heart are placed there by God because He wants them to be fulfilled, just like you do, but in His time and in His will. Meanwhile, here's an episode about discernment... THROUGH THICK AND THIN~

    16: NFP and the 50th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae

    16: NFP and the 50th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae

    With the upcoming 50th Anniversary of Pope Paul VI's encyclical Humanae Vitae, we wanted to cover a topic that, in our experience, doesn't get that much coverage in the young adult ministry circles: Natural family planning (NFP).
    We did our best to unpack a theologicaly dense subject starting with the encyclical itself. We then dive into the topic of NFP. Finally we talk about the fruits we can gain from practicing NFP. NFP is more than just peroidic abstinence. It is a means by which a Catholic family can increase or decrease their chances of pregnancy while still respecting God's will by not interferring with natural law.
