    "I've never ever told anyone about that..."

    "I've never ever told anyone about that..."

    Although the conversation started with a dismissive, "I don't really have anything to say," that turned out to not exactly be true.  Given the chance to be really listened to, an older gentleman shares with Fr. Jon things he had never spoken of before.  Listen in on their moving conversation and see how God can work in all hearts.

    "As far as I'm concerned, they're all hypocrites..."

    "As far as I'm concerned, they're all hypocrites..."

    Not every encounter is with someone who is sweet and kind.  As Fr. Jon discovered over tea one day, there are people in the world who are gruff and difficult.  But he did not write off just such a man and instead kept invoking the Holy Spirit.  By persevering in the conversation, Father was able to speak about the freedom God has given us and the love He has for us.  It is a testament to hanging in, even when the conversation is difficult.

    "This has been the most extraordinary encounter ..."

    "This has been the most extraordinary encounter ..."

    Although she was hoping for an afternoon walk by herself near the seashore, Michele's missionary vigilance sensed an opportunity that could have easily been missed.  It led to an "extraordinary encounter " (in her new friends words) at a crucial time in this woman's life.  Although the story is brief, it covers many of the most poignant dimensions of the human experience: suffering, illness, death, loss, and regret.  But in His mercy, God transformed these into a new occasion for faith and love.

    "I lost my husband recently..."

    "I lost my husband recently..."

    Michele was out cruising through "second-hand" stores when an innocuous question about a red hat opened up  much deeper questions about loss, love, and faith.  Realizing that there was no better time than the present, Michele engaged in a beautiful way with a lady who needed to be reconnected with her faith more than ever.  Their time together shows how we can pray with anyone anywhere.

    "I know what you did last summer ..."

    "I know what you did last summer ..."

    We take a bit of a detour in this episode.  Rather than Michele sharing one particular encounter, she recounts some of the highlights of this past summer.  From time on mission to an engaging conference to a conversation with an exorcist to some mischievous behaviour in Rome (Michele really should've known better)  to some thoughtful reflections on the funeral of Queen Elizabeth.  We cover a lot of (unexpected) ground.   Join us for a fun trip down memory lane.

    "Lots of little bridges being crossed..."

    "Lots of little bridges being crossed..."

    While Father Jon was just trying to get a few days rest at a B&B, the Lord had other plans.  Sure, he had time to do a bit of extra reading, praying, and resting, but each day the Lord brought him together with the proprietor for an extended conversation about many of the greatest questions of life.
