S3 E14 Dominic de Souza

April 19, 2021

We’re delighted to spend time with Dominic de Souza, founder of DreamAgain and SmartCatholics, and a dad with a small family and a smaller corgi. 

Tolkien is a popular choice this season (and we’re not complaining!). This quote comes from his essay “On Fairy-Stories”:

We have come from God and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God.

Here’s the movie Dominic mentioned: Arrival.

April 12, 2021

In this episode, we welcome Jessica Connolly, owner of Telos Art Shop (which Lindsay is borderline obsessed with).

Her quote comes from The Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis:

“We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words—to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.”

We’re so grateful to share these thoughts on beauty as we celebrate the Easter season.

April 6, 2021

We’re happy to welcome Melissa Buchan, founder of Virtus Fertility Care, Fertility Awareness educator, and health coach, to the show.

Whether you’re a man or a woman, married, single, or religious, I encourage you to tune in to this episode. Fertility awareness is about more than babies. It’s about appreciating the human person as a whole, something our culture gets wrong time and again.

I love when a quote comes from one arena of life and finds application elsewhere. The quote we discuss comes from American operatic soprano Beverly Sills:

“There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.”

March 31, 2021

Today we welcome Catholic children’s book author Theresa Kiser.

Theresa is the author of the upcoming Our Sunday Visitor picture book, Arthur the Clumsy Altar Server Serves His First Mass (A Book about Serving God); as well as the board book A Little Catholic's Book of Liturgical Colors, which received the Catholic Writer's Guild Seal of Approval for authentically Catholic content, and the pre-teen fantasy series, The Manakor Chronicles, which received the 2016 IPPY Award for Best Juvenile Fiction and is ripe with subtle Catholic symbolism and themes. Theresa is also a speaker, book coach, and the host of a Catholic-themed writing contest at her website, theresakiser.com.

Her quote comes from C.S. Lewis:

“Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.”

Connect with Theresa—and her books!—at www.theresakiser.com, and find her on Twitter (@AuthorTKKiser) and Facebook (tkkiser).

March 23, 2021

Rachel Bulman is a wife, mother, writer, and speaker. She frequently contributes to the Word on Fire blog and CatholicMom.com. Her first book will be published with Our Sunday Visitor next fall, and she has contributed to two books with Ave Maria Press and Ignatius Press which will be available this year. Her husband is in formation for the permanent diaconate and they have four children, one in heaven, and a set of twins due this summer.

It seems most likely that Rachel’s quote comes from St. Ambrose of Milan:

“Know, then, oh beautiful soul, that you are the image of God.”

When we accept that our souls are beautiful—that we are the image of God—then beautiful and life-giving gifts unfold. Listen in for more.

S3 E8 Katie Bogner

S3 E8 Katie Bogner

March 9, 2021

We’re thrilled to welcome Katie Bogner, Catholic school teacher and parish Director of Religious Education (DRE).

Katie produces beautiful resources for the home and classroom (I’ve used so many of them!), and is very generous with the fruits of her creativity. I’m so grateful for the ways she shares her faith and makes it easier for me to do the same.

This season is JPII-heavy, and I am all about it. Katie brings us words from the saint during the World Youth Day Vigil of Prayer, August 19, 2000:

"It is Jesus in fact that you seek when you dream of happiness; he is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; he is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is he who provokes you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is he who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is he who reads in your hearts your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be grounded down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal."

Katie has a wonderful new book, Through the Year with Jesus: Gospel Readings and Reflections for Children. We hope you’ll grab a copy (or more!).

Find Katie online at looktohimandberadiant.com, on Instagram @katherine.bogner, on Etsy etsy.com/shop/LookToHimBeRadiant, or reach out via email to looktohimandberadiant@gmail.com.

S3 E3 Julia Golding

S3 E3 Julia Golding

February 2, 2021

Continuing with our most international season to date, we welcome Julia Golding from Oxford, England. Julia is a writer and the director of Project Northmoor, a campaign to save J.R.R. Tolkien’s home (where he wrote The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy) and to establish the first literary center in the world dedicated to Tolkien. 

Though it sounds as if it could have been written today, Julia’s quote fittingly comes from Tolkien himself, namely from The Fellowship of the Ring:

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

We also discussed these words from Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis:

“Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”

And if you’re wondering about White Horse Hill, here’s some more info: Uffington White Horse

May 26, 2020

In the Season Two finale, we welcome a brave, loving soul with a heart for Christ. Mary Lenaburg is the author of Be Brave in the Scared: How I Learned to Trust God during the Most Difficult Days of My Life. She is also a speaker and someone you are going to want to follow on Instagram for her humor, honesty, and encouragement.

By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Season Two both begins and ends with quotes from Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales (the patron saint of writers!), whom our host Lindsay has also quoted on her personal IG page

"Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it." 

Also mentioned in this episode is Ephesians 3:20-21: “Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine, by the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” 

And one more from St. Joan of Arc: “We must call upon the Lion of the Lord.” 

Okay, last one: “Pray like a girl.” 

Follow Mary on social media under her name, @marylenaburg, and check out her website at www.marylenaburg.com so you don’t miss any news on her next book, expected February 2021.

S2 E20 Elizabeth Tomlin

S2 E20 Elizabeth Tomlin

May 19, 2020

Elizabeth Tomlin is an Army wife and mother of three. She is the author of Joyful Momentum: Growing and Sustaining Vibrant Women's Groups (a Catholic Handbook). An attorney by profession, Elizabeth is General Counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. She helped to establish the Military Council of Catholic Women, which is the women's ministry of the Military Archdiocese in 2010 and continues to serve on the board of directors. Elizabeth speaks often at Catholic conferences and parish retreats across the globe. She is a regular contributor to Salute, the magazine of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, CatholicMom.com and WINE: Women in the New Evangelization. She moderates a Facebook group called Joyful Momentum, which is a community of Catholic women involved in women's ministry. Elizabeth earned her bachelor of science degree in chemistry in 2002 from the College of William and Mary and her juris doctor from the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School in 2010. She lives with her husband, Gregory, and their children at Joint Base Lewis McChord, Washington.

St Teresa of Calcutta:

"If our work were just to wash feet and give medicine to the sick, our centers would have closed a long time ago. The most important thing in our centers is the opportunity we are offering to reach souls."

I was reading a book of her letters, and it just jumped off the page. I think the world outside of the Catholic church looks at her as a great philanthropist or "do-gooder," and3 while she physically helped many people, that was not her goal. He goal was her vocation, which was always laser focused on bringing souls to Jesus -quenching his thirst for love of souls 

This quote made me consider all things I spent my days doing and whether these things were part of my vocation. It made me think pretty decisively about what I was doing merely as a volunteerism versus my vocation.

Facebook - I have a Joyful Momentum Group, and I'm on Facebook and Instagram as my name - Elizabeth Tomlin and I blog at joyfulmomentum.org

Thereafter, he founded Spiritual Strength, which offers retreats, presentations, and social media spreading devotion to the three hearts and fighting against the world, flesh, and devil. 

In this episode we discuss a common phrase within a new context:

"Shoot for the moon, because even if you miss you will still be among the stars." 

We talked about these books, which we both recommend:

Katie Warner is a Catholic children’s book author, speaker, National Catholic Register writer, wife, and homeschooling mom. She knows what it is to pursue holiness in the midst of a busy life, and she speaks with inspiring and contagious joy in this episode.

Her quote comes right from our Lord, in His communication to a Benedictine monk as recorded in the book In Sino Jesu: When Heart Speaks to Heart—The Journal of a Priest at Prayer:

“Give Me as much time as you can, and I will give you time and energy to do all that you must do.”

Katie also calls to mind these words from St. Thérèse of Lisieux:

“God cannot inspire unrealizable desires. I can, then, in spite of my littleness, aspire to holiness.”

We love all of Katie’s children’s books, and hope you’ll get a copy of her newest title, Lily Lolek, Future Saint, illustrated by Amy Rodriguez, officially published May 19 and available now for pre-order.

Rose Osada is a wife, mother of five, and owner/operator of Relics by Rose, which creates beautiful Catholic jewelry with vintage and modern style.

As working lives have changed for most of us in recent weeks, Rose’s quote is a beautiful and helpful reminder that there is virtue in doing whatever work we’re called to well. From Theodore Roosevelt, we hear,

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

How has your understanding of “work” changed over the last six weeks? How is God continuing to call out to you in the vocation you find yourself in? We’d love to know, so leave us a comment on Instagram!

“She seems so full of good will, but she wants to go faster than grace allows. It is not possible to become spiritually mature all at once. 

We discuss some of Heidi’s books, and we’re happy to link to them here:

Blessed Is the Fruit of Thy Womb: Rosary Reflections on Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Death 

67 Ways to Do the Works of Mercy with Your Kids
