This week’s episode: Our 150th episode!!
“Blessed are They”: Blessed John Paul II
“Among Women” Guest: Sarah Reinhard
Just how do the rosary and pregnancy go together? Well, they both nurture new life in us, both spiritually and biologically!
This week, our “Blessed are They” segment is a departure from our usual discussions about a woman saint, as we open Rosarium Virginis Mariae, the Apostolic Letter of Blessed John Paul II on the Most Holy Rosary, in honor of October, the month dedicated to the Rosary (when this podcast was originally slated to be released. But, given the superstore “Sandy”, our timeline was delayed.)
In our guest segment, I talk with longtime friend of AW, Sarah Reinhard, and we share themes from her new book, A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy: Walking with Mary from Conception to Baptism. We talk about how the Blessed Mother assists and inspires a woman during the stages of pregnancy, and in preparation for having a child baptized. See below for our free drawing to win a copy of Sarah’s book.
Be sure to listen all the way to the end of the podcast to join me in praying for the storm victims in the Northeast.
