Ep. 89: Discerning Vocations plus Children of Men

Posted May. 6, 2022 by DOM No comments yet

What’s the best way to love God? The answer can vary a bit from person to person, and impacts who we care for, what we do, where we live, and how we act. You know, minor stuff. Having formed priests for over a decade, Fr. Carter Griffin joins to provide insight on how to respond to God’s call. Then (24:35), Kara jumps in to talk about The Children of Men, both the novel and the film based on it. We… had definite opinions on which was better.

Ep. 87: Discernment plus Prince of Egypt part 1

Posted Apr. 8, 2022 by DOM No comments yet

For decades, Fr. Timothy Gallagher has been spreading the spiritual wisdom of St. Ignatius of Loyola and his predecessors- wisdom that can help answer questions like “why am I here?” and “is this desire to follow a certain path from God?”. We had a lot to talk about, so naturally we had too much to fit into one episode. Later (16:30), Kara joins to chat about The Prince of Egypt, a sensational and underrated movie, which Andrew claims is the greatest movie based on scripture. Regardless of whether it’s the best or merely one of the best, it makes for a great preparation for Passover and Holy Week.
