The Pursuit of an Apostolic Life through Service, Piety, Fellowship, Study, and Prayer
Category: Justin Morgan
Justin is a convert to the Catholic faith and entered the church in the spring of 2002. He is married with three children and works in the insurance industry. In 2011 he attended a weekend retreat which launched him on a journey to learn more about his faith. His favorite shows are EWTN and The Catholic Channel on satellite radio. When he has spare time, he also enjoys reading. If you want to know his favorite book, you will have to ask him.
What do Lou Holtz, Mike Sweeney, and the Pope have in common? They each believe in the power of prayer and at the center of some pretty miraculous events is the President of Benedictine College, Steve Minnis.
We had a great interview with President Minnis during this podcast as he showed us the power of prayer and what it means to say “yes” to Our Mother Mary. If you’ve ever doubted what prayer can do, we ask you to take a listen…and prepare to be amazed.
Mainstream movies have an age limit that tops out at 17 / 18, so if you’re over the age of 18 you can watch, pretty much any movie you want…right? But should you? How closely does Hollywood’s movie rating system fall in-line with that of the Church? Did you know the Church even had a rating system?
In this episode, we cover the ranking systems and how some current, classic, and our favorite movies compare to those ranking systems. I’d bet after this podcast, you might think twice about going to see certain movies, regardless of your age.
New Equipment? Too Bad for You!
We finally received the equipment necessary to patch phone calls into the podcast recordings. So, you guessed it, we reached out to some friends and family in this episode and put them on the spot!! Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
In this episode of the show we discuss another Biblical character, Simon of Cyrene. How much do you know about him? Where is Cyrene and what was he doing in Jerusalem? Was he Jewish? Why was he (specifically) called upon to participate in the single greatest event in human history?
We cover all these questions and more as we look into a small yet significant person from the Bible.
As we prepare for the 4th week of Advent, we prepare for the birth of Christ, especially since it lands on Christmas Eve. With that in mind, what is the greatest gift you ever received? What is the greatest gift you’ve ever given? We discuss ours as well as the greatest gift the world has ever received, the gift of Jesus Christ.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. We are wanted to start a Q&A section of the podcast, so if you have any burning questions about the faith, drop us a note.
The third week of Advent, we are calling it The Living Joy. This week is a time of rejoice, a time of joy. But this time of year it’s easy to confuse happy with joy. We dive into this topic during this podcast, we hope you enjoy.
Feel free to leave your comments below, and thank for listening.
Justin and Dan
As the Holy Family is making their journey to Bethlehem, we reflect on our own journey. Are we standing still, stuck in the sand doing the same things over and over all the while bearing no fruit? What does our journey look like, what should it look like and (most importantly), what will it look like?
