Hi, I am reading your book “Learning to Pray,” and just had the thought “look for Fr. Martin on podcasts.” Well, I see there is a new episode today! I’m not sure if this used to be a podcast since I only see one episode but previous reviews. In any case, I’m grateful for this SIGN and excited to dive in. This is a great first episode and loved learning about Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton.
