  • 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.
