Awesome!

I’ve given a review before but Father Mike keeps blowing me away. Awesome insight on the Word of God.

Just do it!

The Bible in a Year podcast has been such a blessing in my life and the lives of many other people I know. At my parish, dozens of people have been going through it and find that the Bible has come alive to them and that it finally makes sense.

Fr. Mike’s great reflections each day make the whole thing enjoyable, even when you’re going through some of the “dryer” books like Leviticus.

So if you’re thinking about listening to this, then just do it!

3rd year!

I’m on my 3rd year of this Bible in a Year podcast! Listening to Father Mike has become part of my daily routine. I continue to pick up things I missed in previous years and it continues to be very relevant, applicable and a total blessing everyday!
