Great homilies and great resource for prayers

I have many of these podcasts saved for when I want extra help in my prayer life. The rosaries, the litanies, and the homilies all add to my spiritual life. Thank you for posting. I also enjoy the occasional talks.

Thank You & Request

I’m new to St. Mary’s Basilica and am enjoying the podcasts. I was told George Washington was instrumental in establishing St. Mary’s Church within the bounds of the city of Alexandria at a time when Catholic Churches were denied that privilege. A podcast about the history of the establishment and growth of the Basilica would be interesting and welcome. Thank you.
