Saying really smart things!
That would be Pat Gohn in her latest Among Women Podcast, where she makes a very loving and learned exposition of of Mary’s visit to Elizabeth and what it teaches us, and then brings in her fellow Patheos Columnist, Happy Catholic’s Julie Davis — herself a golden-voiced podcaster of tireless energies, to discuss Julie’s terrific book (it’s on my desk as I write this) Happy Catholic; Glimpses of God in Everyday Life .
The conversation becomes really broad –sacraments; being an American and a Catholic; obedience; the importance of a family meal; the reality of temptation — Pat and Julie touch on a lot, here. They’re two strong women of deep faith, and their chat is very much worth listening to.
If nothing else, listen to them read St. Patrick’s Breastplate, together, at the end. Lovely. You’ll be blessed!
