This week’s episode:

Blessed Are They: St Catherine Labore and the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

Among Women Guest: Kelly Wahlquist, Director of HAPP

This podcast explains what sacramentals are, as it takes another look at my recent pilgrmage to France. This time I describe visiting the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal at 140, Rue de Bac in Paris, where Mary appeared to St Catherine Labore in 1830. Then I have a conversation with Kelly Wahlquist about an exciting new parish-based program called Hearts Afire, that takes its cue from the two hearts of Jesus and Mary.
