  • Praying!

    I do pray for you Father Mike. I pray that Our Father protect you from evil— the evil of a fallen heart and from the Evil One, who hates the Bride of Jesus. God has blessed you and you are a blessing to so many. “Please Lord put your fortress over him!”

  • Happy to be back after 45 years 🫶🏻

    At age 20 I left the Catholic church to follow Jesus.. I know it sounds crazy but it’s the truth! I found Jesus apart from the Catholic church, and 45 years later I realize He was there all along! The tools of Catechism podcast and even Bible podcast are making the teachings of Jesus and of the Catholic church accessible and understandable. Thank you!
