Hello and welcome back to the second season of The Just One Small Thing Podcast: Everyday Wisdom for Catholic Women!
In today’s episode you’ll get to meet my friend and New Co-Host, Katie Wood, while we talk about this season’s motto: Let the Eucharist Lead.
To be honest, this might be our motto forever and ever because how can you beat it? Isn’t this what it means to be Catholic? Christ in the Eucharist is at the center of it all, whether in Adoration or the Celebration of the Mass. He is truly present in that little host and gives Himself to all, freely, without reserve. This is our model for Love. This is our path to holiness.
We’ll share what this motto means to us in our lives as well as some examples from the Saints, specifically St. Alphonsus Ligori and Venerable Cardinal Van Thuan.
We’ll also touch on alternatives for when physically visiting an adoration chapel isn’t possible (did you know your guardian angel can go without you?) and the spiritual warfare (and momma struggles) you can expect to face when you can go (did you know cooled incense makes for a particularly fearsome ‘warpaint?’ True Story).
Additionally in this episode: some exciting news concerning the Catholic Sprouts Podcast! People have been asking how they can help support the ministry and I have an answer!!
