S2 E21 Mary Lenaburg

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. 

That’s it for Season Two! We’ll be taking a break as Lindsay prepares to welcome a new child into her family. Please keep sharing and spreading the news about this show! We plan to be back in October 2020 with Season Three. (Get excited! The line-up already looks great!)

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

Gene Zannetti owns Winning Mindset, a sport-performance mental training program, and is also the author of Spiritual Strength: Building the Total Athlete for Christ, which has received a Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. 

Once a nationally ranked All-Ivy League wrestler at the University of Pennsylvania, Gene experienced a strong reversion to the Catholic faith following the 33-day consecration to Jesus through Mary. 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: 

33 Days to Morning Glory: A Do-It-Yourself Retreat In Preparation for Marian Consecration by Fr. Michael E. Gaitley

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!

Author and speaker Heidi Indahl shares wise words about slowing down—which many of us have been called to do lately—and letting God take the lead in our lives. Her quote comes from The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence: 

“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

Chloe Langr is a writer, podcaster, and the author of Created for Love: Reflections for the Catholic Bride-to-Be and the forthcoming Letters to Women: Embracing the Feminine Genius in Everyday Life.

She is passionate about the feminine genius, which she explores on her podcast, Letters to Women. When she isn't buried under a growing stack of books, you can find her in a local coffee shop, spending time with her husband, Joseph, and their daughter, Maeve.

Though again this episode was recorded before we knew what COVID-19 was, it’s relevant and powerful in this time. Chloe invites us to reflect on Pope Saint John Paul II’s trademark phrase,

"Be not afraid."

We hope you’ll be encouraged by the realization that God knows we’re going to face fear. He knows we want to be in control. He also wants us to trust Him, and these words can help us do just that. Remember: He’s with us at every moment.

May you be drawn further in to the joy and peace of the Easter season with this conversation.

Other resources mentioned in this episode include this song by Mike Mangione and these temporary tattoos from Just Love Prints.

The most recent of these—Seeking Peace: A Spiritual Journey from Worry to Trust (super relevant, right?!)—is available now.

She brings us words from Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis that are fit for any time of year, but have particular poignancy during Holy Week:

“Try to bear patiently with the defects and infirmities of others, whatever they may be, because you also have many a fault which others must endure.”

If you’re looking for good spiritual reading, this book is a great place to start!

S2 E13 Val Kelly “God you have never failed us in the past and you will not fail us in the future.”

S2 E13 Val Kelly “God you have never failed us in the past and you will not fail us in the future.”

March 31, 2020

This episode was recorded before we understood what the coronavirus was. Before school closings. Before social distancing. Way before Pope Francis’s Urbi et Orbi blessing and message.

We share this information because of the surprising relevance this episode carries, right down to the Gospel passage on which Pope Francis reflected last week. We hope you are encouraged, inspired, and lifted up by the hand of our God over this conversation.

Val Kelly is a daughter of God, wife, and mom, as well as a co-founding team member of You, Me and NFP. Her quote comes from her husband, Brendan. It’s a prayer he has often prayed when the couple needs to rely on God and trust in the faithfulness of Christ.

“God you have never failed us in the past and you will not fail us in the future.”

Val also calls on Mark 4:35-41:

“On that day, as evening drew on, he said to them, ‘Let us cross to the other side.’ Leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat just as he was. And other boats were with him. A violent squall came up and waves were breaking over the boat, so that it was already filling up. Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion. They woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?’ He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ The wind ceased and there was great calm. Then he asked them, ‘Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?’ They were filled with great awe and said to one another, ‘Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?’”

Alexandra Sullivan is the blogger behind Transform Our Hearts and co-host of the podcast, Raising Saints: Helping Kids Hear God's Voice, which is available on all major platforms.

Sometimes things we read stick with us, even if we’re not sure why until much later. Alexandra shares a section from psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl’s iconic book, Man's Search for Meaning, which she first read in 11th grade morality class. 

"Everything can be taken from man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."

What a gift this freedom is, and how important it is that we cultivate it and use it rightly. Listen in for more, and then let us know what you think!

Adalee Hude is a lovely Catholic artist and creator of Light of Heaven: A Children’s Book of Saints and Light of Heaven Saints Coloring Book. She brings us words from Venerable Fulton Sheen:

“Broken things are precious. We eat broken bread because we share in the depth of our Lord and His broken life. Broken flowers give perfume. Broken incense is used in adoration. A broken ship saved Paul and many other passengers on their way to Rome. Sometimes the only way the good Lord can get into some hearts is to break them.”

Amanda Martinez Beck is the author of Lovely: How I Learned to Embrace the Body God Gave Me, as well as co-founder and editor for Ruah Storytellers (whose Lenten series launches tomorrow!).
 
In this episode, Amanda shares what drew her to convert to Catholicism nearly five years ago and how recognizing herself as God’s treasure has impacted her life.
Amanda shares a quote from St. Lawrence in the third century, in reference to the sick, the infirm, and others cast aside in Roman society:
 
“These are the treasures of the Church.”
 
She also shares a mind-blowing line she received from the Holy Spirit in prayer, which is worthy of its own episode: “Culture turns the wall of the human heart into a door.”

S2 E7 Scott Williams “Ask me in 20 years and we’ll see how successful these boys are. Then I’ll be able to tell you if I succeeded as a coach.”

S2 E7 Scott Williams “Ask me in 20 years and we’ll see how successful these boys are. Then I’ll be able to tell you if I succeeded as a coach.”

February 18, 2020

Today we welcome Scott Williams, founder of Sock Religious, who brings us a quote he came across while coaching youth hockey, from Coach Piggy Lambert.

“Ask me in 20 years and we’ll see how successful these boys are. Then I’ll be able to tell you if I succeeded as a coach.”

Here’s the book on Coach John Wooden in which Scott found this inspiration: Wooden on Leadership: How to Create a Winning Organization.

Whether or not you’re involved with youth in sports or ministry, listen in to have Scott’s quote help you embrace the present moment and be all God’s calling you to be right now. Your trust and faithfulness today will, with His grace, bear beautiful fruit in the future.

Other quotes we discussed:

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
–St. Teresa of Kolkata

“It helps, now and then, to step back and take a long view.
The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is even beyond our vision.
We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent
enterprise that is God's work. Nothing we do is complete, which is a way of
saying that the Kingdom always lies beyond us.
No statement says all that could be said.
No prayer fully expresses our faith.
No confession brings perfection.
No pastoral visit brings wholeness.
No program accomplishes the Church's mission.
No set of goals and objectives includes everything.
This is what we are about.
We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces far beyond our capabilities.
We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something, and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an
opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest.
We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master
builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.”

--Attributed to St. Oscar Romero

Alexandria Marrow is a theology-teacher-turned-SAHM, who now focuses on writing. Most of her work is poetry and short fiction. Like Lindsay, she is a contributing writer for Ever Eden Literary Journal. (Check out our interview in Season One with Ever Eden publisher, Amy O’Connell.)

Her quote was her mother’s favorite line:

“Goodness is the only investment that never fails.”

These words from Henry David Thoreau take us into virtue, truth, goodness, and the struggle against contemporary relativism, and lead us back to the hope we have in the power of beauty.

S2 E4 Tim Lucchesi “He (Jesus) assigns as a duty to every man the dignity of every woman.”

S2 E4 Tim Lucchesi “He (Jesus) assigns as a duty to every man the dignity of every woman.”

January 28, 2020

It’s a joy to welcome Tim Lucchesi, stay-at-home dad, director of Chaste Love, and co-host of the new podcast, Home But Not Alone, to the show. 

Tim brings us a quote from Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. This quote comes from the 101st talk in the series, given on November 24, 1982, titled “Christ Opened Marriage to the Saving Action of God.” Here’s the short version:

"He (Jesus) assigns as a duty to every man the dignity of every woman." 

And here’s the long version: 

“Christ, in the Sermon on the Mount, gives his own interpretation of the commandment, ‘You shall not commit adultery’—an interpretation constitutes a new ethos—with the same lapidary words he assigns as a duty to every man the dignity of every woman: and simultaneously (even though this can be deduced from the text only in an indirect way), he also assigns to every woman the dignity of every man. Finally he assigns to every one—both to man and woman—their own dignity, in a certain sense, the sacrum of the person.” 

Here, too, is the purported C.S. Lewis quote that Lindsay mentions (which, it turns out, he never actually said; sorry): “You do not have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” 

Learn more about Tim’s ministry at chastelove.org and @thechastelove on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. And be sure to check out Home But Not Alone, co-hosted by Tim and Sara Estabrooks (who we welcomed to the show S2:E1).

Listeners, you’re in for a treat as we spend some time with Amy Brooks, author of Be Yourself: A Journal for Catholic Girls and the forthcoming Be Yourself: A Journal for Catholic Boys, and founder of PrayerWineChocolate.com and CatholicsOnline.net.

If you’ve ever felt you’re asking too much of God in prayer, you’ll find peace in these words from St. Teresa of Avila:

“You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.”

What great news for those of us with desires in our hearts that feel too big or too impossible. With Christ, indeed, all things are possible! Tune in to hear about Amy continues to live this out in her life.

S2 E2 Katie Woltornist “Be who you are meant to be and you will set the world on fire!”

S2 E2 Katie Woltornist “Be who you are meant to be and you will set the world on fire!”

January 14, 2020

Art, language, Scripture, and the saints come together in this episode, featuring Katie Woltornist, founder of Behold Visio Divina. In her time discerning religious life with the Dominicans, Katie’s heart was struck by these words from St. Catherine of Siena:

“Be who you are meant to be and you will set the world on fire!”

For Katie, that meant a change of course and trusting in the lessons learned along the way. In time, the Spirit led her to create a workshop that became Behold (first offered at St. Paul Inside the Walls in Madison, NJ, where Lindsay and her husband currently teach Pre-Cana).

We encourage you to give Visio Divina a try through one of Behold’s books, workshops, or their upcoming pilgrimage. To get you excited about it, check out this image, “Jump for Joy,” by Corby Eisbacher, which Katie and Lindsay talk (gush) about in their conversation.

Make sure to follow Behold on Facebook and Instagram, too.
