This week’s episode:
“Blessed are They”: St Teresa of Avila
“Among Women” Guest: Maria Johnson
This week I welcome a longtime friend of the podcast, and personal friend of mine, Maria Johnson as a guest on Among Women. Maria Johnson is a blogger and the co-host at Catholic Weekend, as well as a member of the Board of Directors at SQPN. Together we talk about something that Christian friends might already do naturally, that is, to pray for one another. But what we specifically stress in this show is that we ought to try to pray with one another with regularity, especially as we move into the Year of Faith.
Also, Pat read portions of writings from St. Teresa Avila, one of the doctors of the Church, and a woman who prayed with her Divine Friend, Jesus, in our own lovely way.
