Vitamin Q: Quest

From the booklet: Augustine Day by Day: KEEP ON MOVING
“On earth we are wayfarers, always on the go. This means that we have to keep on moving forward. Therefore be always unhappy about what you are if you want to reach what you are not.

If you are pleased with what you are, you have stopped already. If you say, ‘it is enough’,¬†you are lost. Keep on walking, moving forward, trying for the goal. Don,t try to stop on the way or go back, or deviate from it.

Prayer: Lord, guard us from all danger and carry us to Yourself. And You will be our strong support from childhood to old age, for when our strength is Yours, we are strong.”

If I had any’¬†correction’ (bold of me I know) to the above words from Augustine — my thoughts would be that we don’t keep moving when we have found TRUTH, claimed it and taken it into every fiber of our beings and and then we try to live it. I believe that happens in the Catholic Church when we live and practice our faith… when we begin to live our Baptismal promises… when we take Jesus into our own bodies and become Christ to others… when we go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation when we have fallen along the path toward final union with the Answer to our QUEST.

Our Guest: A Man of Quest

Our guest for this show is a doctor (and that didn’t even come out in this part of the show or his narration!) and a songwriter and an accomplished, multi-instrumentalist musician. His name is Russ Rentler and you can find him on loads of places on the internet. But his main site

The words on his site start with these: A Prodigal Couple returns to tell the Good News about the Catholic Church. (1 Timothy 3:15) He certainly shares powerful testimony of QUEST in his life. Maybe parts of this will resonate with you… or perhaps you have yet to respond to the call of God in your life. He’s on a Quest to find you, you know. Listen to Dr. Russ and to his music.

By the way, Russ’ album WAY TO EMMAUS contains music written and played by Russ. You can find ordering information on his site. Please buy one or more copies of this CD. And if you listen to Russ’ return visit on Catholic Vitamins — you’ll hear why this purchase is helpful to the work of Russ and his wife, Deborah.

That you Russ. Blessings upon you, your family, your faith walk and your medical practice.

And to you who haven’t listened to this show — you’ll find out that Russ is coming back for a second appearance in the not-too-distant future. Another dose of Catholic Vitamins for your faith!
