Great Resource

I love this podcast. I have recently developed an interest in Eastern Catholicism, however there are no Eastern churches near me. This podcast allows me to learn more about my Eastern brothers and sisters. I do wish they were a bit longer at times.

Lenten Messages

Truly enjoy Father’s Homily Meditation and Teachings. The Chant that accompanies his teachings definitely needs to be heard by both Lungs of the Catholic Church. Thank you Father Loya for allowing the Holy Ghost to speak so powerfully through you.

Faith, Reason & deep spirituality

I recently came upon this podcast, and thoroughly enjoy it. The hymns are deeply moving, and the messages help build my faith and faithfulness. I appreciate the charitable messages of complementarity between the “two lungs of the Catholic Church,” which you weave throughout your podcast. Thank you.
