Among Women Podcast 213: Prayer is a personal encounter with Jesus

A bit late due to technical difficulties, but we’re back with a new episode of Among Women! This show is dedicated to prayer as we talk with Julie Dortch Cragon about her latest book, Talking to God: Prayers for Catholic Women. You’ll also benefit from spiritual advice from Mother Teresa of Calcutta (soon to be canonized on September 4th!) and St Alphonsus Liguori, as I offer quotes from Julie’s book in our Blessed Are They segment.

Listen now at the Among Women website, or find Among Women on iTunes.

Among Women 196: Finding God’s Peace

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 9.33.26 PMIn this new episode, I happily welcome author Heidi Bratton to Among Women. Together, we discuss her new book, Finding God’s Peace in Everyday Challenges.

Heidi is an author I’ve long admired and I think you’ll be blessed by hearing this conversation. Also in this show, I’m reviewing what we mean when say, “rest in peace”. Plus, our saint profile is the founder of the Society of the Sacred Heart, St Madeleine Sophie Barat.

This makes me think… about all the little ways God is calling us…

This Beloved of ours is merciful and good. Besides, he so deeply longs for our love that he keeps calling us to come closer. This voice of his is so sweet that the poor soul falls apart in the face of her own inability to instantly do whatever he asks of her. And so you can see, hearing him hurts much more than not being able to hear him… For now, his voice reaches us through words spoken by good people, through listening to spiritual talks, and reading sacred literature. God calls to us in countless little ways all the time. Through illnesses and suffering and through sorrow he calls to us. Through a truth glimpsed fleetingly in a state of prayer he calls to us. No matter how halfhearted such insights may be, God rejoices whenever we learn what he is trying to teach us.
