alphaswag6969 ,

awesome podcast 👍

i’ve been listening to Father Roderick’s podcasts since 2014. i would always listen to his podcast before going to sleep, always having interesting and fun topics to talk about. i also appreciate a priest who watches anime like i do :)

Walk

I’ve learned so much from his walks
Such a brilliant priest

Lives up to his name

The so-called “Star Wars Priest” offers wonderful stories, from his pastoral ministry to his love of The Galaxy Far, Far Away. I love listening to his podcasts on a regular basis, and I know my patreon support is going to a great cause.
