Sweet Cross ,

Adopt me please!

I’ve yet to listen to an episode just once. Every single one is worth a re-listen, with a pen and notebook in hand. Simple. Practical. And always surprising- no one breaks open and brings to life the Gospel story like Father John and Mary! I wish I could move in with them and listen to their conversations all day, every day!

Game Changer

From the Rescue Project to this weekly podcast, the changes I’ve noticed in my faith life in the last few months since I discovered it are wild. I look forward to this every week - it’s made such an enormous difference for me during the Mass. I hear everything so much more directly to me from the Lord. I am absolutely loving it.

Any Christian can enjoy this

I always gain great insight from every episode I’ve heard. Heartfelt and entertaining.
