On this week's show, we discuss the Rosary and how to make it a more integral part of our daily journey with Gretchen Crowe, author of Praying the Rosary with St. John Paul II.

About Gretchen Crowe:

Gretchen R. Crowe is editorial director for periodicals at OSV, where she oversees the publication of Our Sunday Visitor, the only national Catholic weekly newspaper in the United States.

You can follow her on Twitter @GretchenOSV.

About Praying the Rosary with St. John Paul II:

During his papacy, Pope John Paul II ardently encouraged the faithful to return to the Rosary - his own favorite prayer. He demonstrated his love for it by praying all the mysteries every day, and by writing, speaking, and preaching about it. He knew from his personal experience of prayer that we come to know the person of Jesus Christ through Mary and the Rosary.

With this book, you can pray the Rosary with the saint who loved it so much. For each mystery of the Rosary, you will find:

  • The spiritual fruit that accompanies each mystery
  • A short reflection on how Pope St. John Paul II embodied the spiritual fruit
  • A Scripture passage for reflection
  • An excerpt from a talk or writing of John Paul II

 

Whether the Rosary is already your favorite prayer or you're just learning to pray it, Praying the Rosary with St. John Paul II will help you "rediscover the Rosary in the light of Scripture, in harmony with the Liturgy, and in the context of your daily lives."

Jimmy Akin “The Bible Is a Catholic Book” - Lisa Hendey & Friends #76

Jimmy Akin “The Bible Is a Catholic Book” - Lisa Hendey & Friends #76

November 19, 2019

On this week's show, we address the close connection between the Catholic Church and Sacred Scripture with popular apologist Jimmy Akin as we discuss his newest work The Bible Is A Catholic Book.

About Jimmy Akin:

Jimmy Akin is an internationally known author and speaker. As the senior apologist at Catholic Answers, he has more than twenty-five years of experience defending and explaining the Faith. Jimmy is a convert to the Faith and has an extensive background in the Bible, theology, the Church Fathers, philosophy, canon law, and liturgy. Jimmy is a weekly guest on the national radio program Catholic Answers Live, a regular contributor to Catholic Answers Magazine, and a popular blogger and podcaster. His personal web site is JimmyAkin.com.

About The Bible Is A Catholic Book:

In The Bible Is a Catholic Book, Jimmy shows how the Bible cannot exist apart from the Church. In its origins and its formulation, in the truths it contains, in its careful preservation over the centuries and in the prayerful study and elucidation of its mysteries, Scripture is inseparable from Catholicism. This is fitting since both come from God for our salvation. For Catholics who sometimes get intimidated by the Bible (especially scriptural challenges from Protestants), The Bible Is a Catholic Book will help them better understand and take pride in this gift that God gave the world through the Church. And the clarity and charity that Jimmy uses as explains how the early Church gave us the Bible will make it accessible to non-Catholic Christians as well.

Thankfully, Jeannie and her family were able to survive this time of crisis and now she's ready to share her miraculous story; how she had the brutal conversation with her children, her parents, and close friends; how she came to terms with feeling powerless with the difficult recovery of being bedridden and not eating for a month; how she started to realize the importance of her relationships; and ultimately, to learn, and relearn to be more present in life.
