It’s a keeper... Fr. Riccardo & ACTS XXIX Podcast is a must listen for Catholics. Practical, relevant, and essential discussion for our understanding of the Eucharist and preparing for communion today... Thank you Father!

I miss you three!!

I keep checking for new shows. I went to your website to make sure all is well because there hasn’t been a new show for a few days which is unusual for you.

I have come to rely on you for inspiration and motivation.
