When someone comes out of prison, what does the Church do to help them pick up their lives again? Today we’ll talk with Bishop Wack from the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee and Fr. Dustin Feddon, of Joseph House, Angela Burrin, who ministers at a Maryland women’s prison, and Lindsay Myers.
Here’s a website about Catholic Prison Ministries.
Hi Sara! I just started listening to this episode and paused it write to you. My husband and I love Made For Love! The stories, the way it is cut and edited, the music, your narration — all of it makes for such a wonderful listening experience. It has really enriched both of our faith lives.
I want to share a way the podcast directly affected our lives recently. About a month ago, I was planning to meet a new friend of mine (Jane) at the park (for our kids to play and for some social time for us). She is here in America from China for a year studying at a law school near us. As I was on my way to the park, I received a text from Jane saying that her car battery had died and that she wouldn’t be able to meet us. Knowing that her English is broken and she’s here from another country, I asked she needed any help. Jane quickly responded that, yes, she did. I don’t know how to jump a car, but my husband does and so I quickly called him. My husband is a very good man but is not one to immediately volunteer for something and doesn’t enjoy talking with new people, however to my surprise, when I asked him to jump start Jane’s car, he immediately said yes. I picked him up and we were able to get her car running.
After this all happened, I admitted to my husband that I thought I’d meet more resistance from him when asking him to help Jane. These were his words, “Well, I had just heard the part about the lady helping the homeless refugees, so I really couldn’t say no.” He was referring to your hospitality episode!
I just want to affirm you in your efforts on the podcast and tell you how much we love it! I honestly have wished many times that we lived near you so that we could try to meet you in person! You seem awesome.
Thanks for all you do!
Also, I forgot to say THANK YOU for all your hard work and for making the podcast!
Thanks so much for this! Really appreciate it 🙂
