A Gift

I just started listening a couple weeks ago and am going through "older" episodes while awaiting the next. The Aug 25 episode on St. Augustine's 2nd conversion struck a nerve and a chord. I've been in the midst of my own 2nd (or 3rd?) conversion, trying to let go of my own attempt to control and carve away my own vices and to let Him work through me and heal me. Thank you for this reminder and explanation for better understanding. This podcast has been a gift to me.

Thèse podcasts have helped me get closer to God, I have learned so much from Dr Sri he has a very simple direct way to explain teachings of the Catholic Church but also inspires you as a fellow Christian. I check daily to see if he has another podcast out. What I love is that he doesn’t go too fast or quote so many scriptures at a time that you get lost.
