What a spectacular podcast.

Mr Kennedy was my teacher at Marquette University high school and everything with his was a beyond pleasant experience. This podcast taught me so much about ignitions that I didn’t know prior to listening to it which is an essential theme at this fabulous high school. Overall, I would highly reccomend this podcast for anyone who is in for learning about a crucial figure in our faith.
What a great SJ much love to the homies of 6th period
