A lot of quality in manageable quantities

What I love about this show is that each episode is deeply insightful, and yet of a manageable length. The wisdom Dr. Sri offers is both timeless and incredibly relevant. His scholarship is enriched by stories of his life as a father/husband, and his love for Christ is inspiring. A must listen for any Catholic at any level of knowledge about their faith.

Thank you Dr Sri!

I watch, listen and read everything you share with us—- it has helped me grow in holiness and knowledge more than i can ever tell you. I first discovered you at a bible study at the parish on Mary and i was hooked . You are a blessing to Gods people and his Catholic Church.
