This question might sound dramatic, “What was I thinking?” However, if you told me that I would have started this new internet venture even 3 months ago, I probably would laugh. I am passionate about using the latest means of technology and communication to share the good news of the gospel. This didn’t seem to fit at first, but now I see God using it in great ways.
What is it?
I would like to introduce you to my new podcast Catholic Heroes. It’s a 10-15-minute podcast that focuses on our call to be saints, Catholic heroes, by looking to the lives of the saints as guides and inspiration.
You were created by God for great things. My hope is that this podcast will help you discover who God created you to be. Holiness is exactly that.
Now I realize reading this announcement might seem like your neighbor telling you how excited they are about getting dial-up internet. I am mean aren’t podcast old news? Are they relevant?
Consider these two statistics:
21% of Americans listen to a podcast at least monthly (and that’s a 23% increase from last year.) Source
Apple has surpassed 1 billion subscriptions for podcasts via iTunes Source
If you haven’t discovered or rediscovered podcasts recently, check them out. I love listening to a good podcast when driving, working out, or even doing some work around the house. I think podcasts are a great medium for learning, growing, and engaging in thoughtful conversation.
My Show Idea
We believe that every person is called to be holy and to be a saint. That call can sound overwhelming, intimidating, and even silly if we don’t understand what that means. Each week I talk about what this call to be holy means and I look at the life of a saint. The saints show us great examples of how to live out that call to be heroes. My goal is to share 2-3 lessons from the saint I am discussing that can help you on your journey in following Jesus.
Each episode normally starts off as a Facebook Live video on Tuesday afternoon and then gets converted into a podcast episode (you can join in live at Facebook.com/redeemedonline Tuesdays at 2 PM EST).
I want to invite you to check out the episodes on my website here or subscribe on iTunes Here or Google Play Here. If you like it (I hope you do), please leave a review on iTunes. This helps get the word out and helps other people find the podcast.
I would love to know what saints you would like me to talk about? Any other podcasts you would like to highly recommend? Share below- love hearing from you!
