    Episode 20: Our Living Witness

    After 3 attempts, we finally recorded this episode! Prompted by our milestone of reaching 1,000 likes on our Facebook page [!], we were determined to sit down and discuss what it has been like having a witness that grows and perseveres over time by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also discuss how, because of the victory of Jesus, Christian relationships are not defined by or bound to the earthly and physical, but become unbreakable and metaphysical, and reach into heaven.

    Episode 19: The Saints, Pt 2: Padre Pio

    Elizabeth and I talk in more detail about Padre Pio's stigmata; specifically about the medical examinations he was subjected to as well as those done by church authorities sent by the pope. We also talk about the 10 year persecution Padre Pio faced by those within the Church, including within the Vatican, and the death of his sister Felicita and his mother.

    Episode 18: The Saints, Pt I: Padre Pio

    Episode 18: The Saints, Pt I: Padre Pio

    In this new series, my daughter Elizabeth and I discuss a few saints that we have been reading about, beginning with Padre Pio. Padre Pio was a Franciscan priest and monk from Italy who bore the stigmata (i.e., the physical wounds of Jesus Christ) for 50 years and performed many miracles. Both his stigmata and many of his miracles were subjected to scientific and medical scrutiny, and Padre Pio himself faced strong opposition from high-ranking members of the Catholic Church.

You’re not alone

Hearing someone who has seen and live through many things helps me to understand that I am not alone, that we are not alone. Living the everyday life you can become numb to the fact that there is also another someone somewhere also living and experiencing the same hard life as yourself, or even more so.
