Much needed for queer Catholics and our allies

I continually feel seen, heard, and healed by the work of Vine and Fig. This is God’s work, through and through. Thanks, guys.

Remarkably thoughtful

Each episode welcomes listeners to accompany fellow Catholics and Christians in their unique paths In deepening their faith life, as each describes how they found and pursued their vocation. Big thumbs up to the two co-hosts and members of their community.

A much needed podcast

This podcast is very much needed in the queer Catholic community. Resources that affirm queer relationships from a Catholic perspective are rare. Pat and Jacob provide relevant insights into day-to-day events, but also tie conversation topics back to the history of the Church at large. All in all, an excellent podcast.
