Positive content to enrich the spiritual life
I am not a part of the diocese but really appreciate you putting together positive content to aid me on my spiritual journey.
I’ve been listening to all of these episodes on Google Play (since I have an android phone), which is why I am just now rating the podcast on my laptop. The episode in January about Mary’s shelter was so moving. I kept thinking about it for days after. And the episode about Santa Clause was genuinely delightful. But really, all of the episodes have been really great! Keep it up!!
Great interview with Laraine Bennett. I love her work and the interview hit a lot of useful topics. Great discussion
