Truly an Encouragement

As a former Protestant from the South, this is the first resource my godfather sent me when I told him I wanted to convert. Fr. Barnabas has a charming demeanor as he discusses meaningful issues for Christians in the light of the Ancient Faith. Give the program a listen and you won’t regret it.
