This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity

“Among Women” Guest: School Sisters of Christ the King: Sr Marie Caritas, CK, and Sr Peter Marie, CK

This episode catches us up with each other after a short break in our podcast cycle due to school and travel in my life. Plus I also share some happy news here in the Gohn family.

Our podcast profiles some of the writings of St Elizabeth of the Trinity and talks about finding heaven — making our souls a heaven here on earth. Plus I’m so happy to welcome two women religious from the School Sisters of Christ the King. Together we discuss their vocations, their educational apostolate, and the joy of being brides of Christ, mothers to souls (spiritual motherhood), and daughters of the Church.

Nan Balfour

This week we look at at the gift of faith and what it means to fall in love with God. In our “Blessed are They” segment, we pray along with Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity — whose faith was wrapped up in love of the Holy Trinity. Then in our “Among Women” segment, I converse with Nan Balfour, a leader with the Pilgrim Center of Hope, and conference coordinator for the Catholic Women’s Conference in San Antonio. Nan shares pivotal conversion moments in her life — a life of on-going conversion — and how they led her to what she does now.
