    Discipline for Discipleship | Episode 14

    Faithfully following Jesus Christ requires that we first have mastery over ourselves. In a word, it requires discipline. As the liturgical season of Lent draws closer, Doug and Fr. Braun sit down to discuss how the spiritual practices associated with Lent - prayer, fasting, and almsgiving - help us grow in self-mastery in order to follow Our Lord. Episode 14.

    How to Form Strong Marriages | Episode 13

    How to Form Strong Marriages | Episode 13

    God has a profound design for the Sacrament of Marriage. Through it He provides the grace for every couple to continually draw closer to each other, to co-operate with Him in the creation and education of children, and to be a visible sign of His love to the world. Due to Original Sin, however, this design is so often marred by confusion and selfishness. As a culture we have lost sight of what marriage is meant to be. This is why, in his Constitution on Teaching, Bishop Strickland described ongoing marriage formation in the Diocese of Tyler as "perhaps the most important project we undertake". (18) Join Deanna and Mikki as they sit down with Jodi Todd, Marriage Formation Coordinator at the Cathedral in Tyler, to discuss, in practical terms, what it takes for the Church to form healthy, thriving Catholic marriages. Episode 13.  SHOW NOTES: Full Text of the Exhortation Before Marriage

Braun and Doug Barry as they discuss why it is so important for the Church to place a renewed emphasis on beauty in today's catechetical and evangelical efforts.  Episode 12.

Loved it

I loved this podcast and will continue to listen, however I judge that this topic is too broad and an hour is too long for me.
