A wonderful podcast for those “on the threshold” of faith

I am so grateful for the conversations in this podcast, and I learn so much from them. The deacons invite thoughtful guests, and the interviews help me understand better the depths of Christian spirituality and the wonderful diversity of the Catholic faith. Highly recommended!

Endless Song ,

Intelligent, heartfelt Catholic conversations

A thought-provoking podcast series where three down to earth men discuss contemporary issues and interview insightful personalities. This is not the place to get “the answers” but to mull over with them, the questions, concerns and challenges facing the Catholic Church and the world.
