Excellent Podcast

Love this podcast. Matt does a great job of teaching the fundamentals of the faith and how to apply them to our lives. Many people tell horror stories of how dry RCIA can be, but Matt shows how transformative the process can be. Thanks, Matt.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - Life-changing!!

I can't recommend this podcast highly enough. Matt's insight into the Catholic faith and ability to communicate those beliefs/perspectives/practices in a way that brings them to life is absolutely incredible.

Great at diving deep into the marriage of reason and faith

I had gone through RCIA during my college years, but getting to listen and attend this course brought it from a cool level of Philosophy and reason to really get at the "why" behind the Church teaching and the belief of the Catholic faith, without compromising true faith. I think that's a very important approach for those who are going through formation towards 'Becoming Catholic.' Thanks, Matt. Really enjoy it!
