It Is Jesus That You Seek

Do you long for happiness? I'm sure you do—it's the desire at the center of every human heart. It can seem impossible to hold on to, like sand through splayed fingers. BUT there is one source that will remain, Jesus. Listen as Richaél Lucero recounts how the words of St. John Paul II reminded her of this over and over during Lent. And shares why it's a message we should all take with us this season and next.

Lent: An Invitation to Partner With Jesus

Pray, fast, and give alms—these three requests means Lent must be here. Did you know these acts link to Jesus' temptations in the desert and the three sins that led to the Fall in the Garden? Well they are. And! They are an invitation from Jesus to partner with him in something so significant to his mission it will blow your mind. Tune in and I'll share it all with you. I don't think you'll ever look at prayer, fasting and almsgiving the same again.

Heroic Virtue & Holy Detachment

Heroic virtue isn’t just for the martyrs—it’s for all the faithful. The key to living heroic virtue is *holy detachment.* But holy detachment is not about emptiness or nothingness. It's actually about being filled up! Listen to learn more of what holy detachment is, isn't, and why it goes hand-in-hand with heroic virtue. Plus, Richaél Lucero will explain how to practice holy detachment.

Theosis and the Virtues

"The goal of the virtuous life is to become like God," St. Gregory of Nyssa. As a Christian this is your mission—theosis, become like God. Cultivating the virtues is essential for theosis. So, how are you growing in virtue? Do you have a routine, strategy, or even a general approach? Richaél Lucero explains what virtues are, where they come from, how we get them, and God's presence in the process.

You'll also hear some insights from two of your fellow listeners.

Gospel of Peace & Shield of Faith: Spiritual Warfare and the Armor of God

(It's probably not where you expected.) This series combines a bible study on the armor of God and spiritual warfare. Each episode goes over one of seven pieces of armor.
