    #536 You Gotta Use Words - Thomas Heyne, MD, M.St

    As a student at Oxford and an instructor at Harvard, he tried living by the maxim, “Preach always, and when necessary, use words.” It didn’t work.

Absence of new episodes

I enjoy the conversational discussions about issues affecting Catholics, but I am concerned because it has been something like 6 weeks since a new episode has been released.
