This episode:

“Blessed are They”: St Dorothy of Montau

“Among Women” Guest: Sr Theresa Aletheia Noble FSP

In this episode we catch up after a hiatus and talk about spiritual direction and the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius. We also discuss the need to lead with humility in Lent, in our dealings with others, and most especially when we are trying to invite friends and loved back to the Catholic faith. Today’s guest, Sr Theresa Aletheia Noble FSP, is a new author who shares her own story of coming back to Catholicism after rejecting it in her childhood for atheism. Additionally, she offers listeners three helpful tips from her new book, The Prodigal You Love: Inviting Loved Ones Back to the Church.

    So glad you put out another podcast. You’ve been a busy girl. Good for you. You’re doing wonderful things for us and for yourself. Really enjoyed this podcast. I appreciated your line of questions for Sr Theresa. What a wonderful personal story. I think I will get her book and an extra for my parish. I hope your ‘Country Lane’ is melting out from all that snow you had to endure. Being a East-coaster, I know the feeling well.

    Pat, I loved this episode, and your talk about needing to ‘retreat to the silence’. I just happened to listen to it, after doing a Poustinia (Russian word for “dessert”) as a part of my Lenten journey this year. Madonna House (an Apostolate started by the late Catherine Doherty up in Canada) has a field house just 90 miles north of us here in AZ. I drove there and spent a 24-hour period in a prayer room alone with GOD, fasting on bread, tea and water. The Bible and a few writings of Catherine’s about Posutinia were the only reading material allowed. My cell phone and any other electronics stayed locked in my car… no distractions! This was my first time to do something like this, but I’m sure that it will become an annual Lenten experience… the silence was ‘heavenly’. We all need this now and then.
