Pope Francis has proclaimed  “an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy as a special time for the Church, a time when the witness of believers might grow stronger and more effective.”

This podcast is devoted to offering tips for sharing your faith story and being a better witness for Christ in the Year of Mercy. Joining me is Catholic blogger Nancy Ward who has designed a new DVD-based seminar “Sharing Your Faith Story.” Together we look at ways to proactively share our personal witness in formal and informal settings. Be listening for tips on being open to witnessing opportunities in the coming year. Also profiled is Blessed Victoria Rasoamanorivo, a 19th century church leader from Madagascar.
