    Unpacking the Feminine Genius II featuring Dr. Deborah Savage

    How do we understand the feminine without also understanding the masculine? Here's a hint...we really can't. Check out this a conversation Alex Dee shares with Dr. Deborah Savage. They share an important conversation on what the feminine genius is and how it extends from scripture. She also explains that in order to understand femininity we must also understand masculinity.  Dr. Savage is a professor of Theology at Franciscan University at Steubenville. She consistently speaks, writes, and studies issues that pertain to masculinity and femininity and is a scholar of St. John Paul II’s surrounding work. Her recent work has focused on the development of a robust theology on the nature of man and woman, both their identities and complementarity. You can see her appear on Faith and Reason, Catholic Answers, First Things, as well as many other leading outlets and publications.

    Unpacking The Feminine Genius I featuring Chloe Langr

    Unpacking The Feminine Genius I featuring Chloe Langr

    May is the month of Mary, and Family Rosary will be reflecting on some of the last words Jesus spoke as He hung on the cross: “Behold your Mother”. Jesus gave his mother, Mary to all of us in that moment. In his “Letter To Women” St. John Paul II spoke of Mary’s motherhood and life as the prime example of the “feminine genius”.

    In this episode, Alex Dee sits down with Chloe Langr, host of the incredible podcast "Letters To Women".  Chloe shares her passion for embracing the feminine genius in the simpleness of everyday life and she and Alex share their thoughts on the current cultural confusion surrounding femininity that is hurting both women and men.

    Who is God? Featuring Tom Lyman

    Who is God? Featuring Tom Lyman

    Holy Week is here! This is the week where we as Christians remember and reflect on the Passion, Crucifixion and Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We see the culmination of God’s grand plan to redeem us as sinners, by offering His own Son to wipe away our sin – “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16). God loves us, so much so that He came into our messy world to save us, which begs the question, just WHO is God? In this episode, Alex Dee and the Director of Family Rosary USA, Tom Lyman discuss their experience of God – The Father.

    Fortify Your Marriage During Lent Featuring Kathleen and Troy Billings

    As Catholics, we know Lent is a penitential season: a time for us to repent and make sacrifices to help us grow closer to Christ. When we grow closer to Christ and become more like Him, it translates to all areas of life, and in a particular way within marriage. In this episode of The Lampstand, Alex Dee discusses how Lent can be a special time of spiritual growth of intimacy with God and relationships between spouses. Kathleen and Troy Billings discuss their new book “Simply Love: Catholic Marriage Day by Day” published by Our Sunday Visitor. Together, they share their wisdom and experience to build a strong marriage and how they have built a community of families around them on fire for Christ and the Rosary.

Amazing!

Alex Dee and Dr. Popcak were entertaining and inspiring. Dr. Popcak's description of meekness as a well trained war horse reframed the word for me entirely. An incredible visual of this virtue. I pray all men have an opportunity to listen to this podcast.
