Have you ever watched Star Wars or Game or Thrones or any of your favorite adventures in film or television (like...Seinfeld?) and found yourself saying, "Damn, I wish there was a church like that one"?

Nuns on the Run
In last week's podcast we gave a shout out to the nuns who have done and continue to do great work in our world. Nuns have often led the way in providing a voice for justice, and we need more of that in our church today! We mentioned a couple of articles about nuns are... Continue Reading →
Episode 15 – Nuns Kick the Habit
Do you ever wonder why it is called "Mother Church" when it so often refuses to give women their due as faith-filled motivators for positive change and all-around rock stars? So do we.

Episode 14 – Mary Takes Flight

Plus, we're keeping it OT as we play a few spirited rounds of Name That Hebrew Scripture Legend...because we are HUGE nerds!
The Examen: Iggy’s Greatest Gift
We took a long wander down the Ignatian path in our last podcast, and all because yesterday (July 31) was the feast of the man himself, St. Ignatius of Loyola. Sometimes, and particularly when we wake up the day after a feast, we find ourselves in a position that requires a long look in the... Continue Reading →
