How to keep a BLAZING faith in these seemingly faith-deadening times? Spend time with people like PATTI MAGUIRE ARMSTRONG and DEACON FERGAL O’NEILL.
Patti Maguire Armstrong is a correspondent for Our Sunday Visitor newspaper and the National Catholic Register, and works in marketing for Teresa Tomeo Communications. She is an award-winning author and was the managing editor and co-author of Ascension Press’ bestselling Amazing Grace series. Her latest books are: Big Hearted: Inspiring Stories From Everyday Families and Dear God, You Can’t Be Serious.
Our interview with return guest, Patti came about because of a delightful Rosary story I found in the National Catholic Register. I asked Patti if we could have a brief interview to catch up on her life, but to also have her tell listeners the amazing story… mayhaps we should use the word ‘alleged’ story of a book on the Rosary falling on her head. Not once, but twice. 🙂
For the last two and a half years before becoming a permanent Deacon in Ireland, FERGAL O’NEILL was a regular correspondent and commentator on all things Catholic, as seen from his perspective and from Ireland. Once ordained, Deacon Fergal found the daily demands of ministry (plus a loving wife and large family) too much to continue his reflections on Catholic Vitamins. On this episode, he rejoins us to tell us of his experiences related to the very recent visit of Pope Francis to Ireland for the World Meeting of Families. Thanks so very much Fergal… your BLAZING Faith helps keep the fires burning for all of us!!
