Catholic Vitamin T Thankfulness

sr-briegeDee celebrates her birthday. Deacon Tom and Dee celebrate our wedding anniversary. And so we express THANKFULNESS. We are both grateful for our Catholic faith; the Church; the Sacraments, etc. Dee is grateful for health. And among many other things, Tom is grateful for the many FRANCISCAN VOICES he’s been blessed to hear (and some to meet with) over eleven years going to Franciscan University in Steubenville, OH.

Today’s show features Sister Briege McKenna – the wonderful Irish nun with a powerful devotion to the Eucharist – and with a powerful ministry to priests. Sister Briege shares about the challenge that Jesus gives to us – to be His witnesses. And Sister encourages all of us to personal holiness, zeal and no fear of being a ‘fool for Christ.’  You can find out more about her at

UnknownWe also feature Dr. John Bergsma, a highly favorite professor at Franciscan University. Dr. B. shares the beginnings of his journey from Protestant ‘pastor’s kid’ and Protestant pastor to becoming an on-fire Catholic. Sorry we can only tease with a bit of this awesome journey story. You can order his conversion story and many other works by Dr. John at  or you can go to the Franciscan University bookstore website and order products there.
