the saints collection

the prayer collection

A collection of episodes on prayer. Different types. Different methods. Suggestions to do it better.

about this collection

The saints glorify the transformative power of the Lord. Throughout the life of the show, Richaél Lucero has sprinkled a few episodes about them into the rotation.

As you listen to these episodes, let yourself be inspired by those who have run the race of holiness before us. Most importantly, take the lessons and wisdom they share. They will help you triumph in your pursuit of a life lived in Christ.

We worship Christ as God’s Son; we love the martyrs as the Lord’s disciples and imitators, and rightly so because of their matchless devotion towards their king and master. May we also be their companions and fellow disciples!

Saint Polycarp, martyr

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.

The Letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch: Link Between the Apostles and the Church Fathers

“Ad fontes” is Latin for “back to the sources.” Returning to the sources of the Catholic Church is the best way to learn about the Faith. After the scriptures, St. Ignatius of Antioch is the perfect place to start. He wrote seven letters while escorted to Rome from Antioch to be martyred. They paint a vivid picture of the Catholic Church after the time of the Apostles. Listen as Richaél Lucero points out some of her favorite parts in these need-to-read Catholic letters.

Relics: Creepy or Miraculous?

The age-old tradition of Christian relics could weird you out if you don’t have a full understanding of them. This seemingly *creepy* tradition of Christianity points our attention toward the Mystical Body of Christ, the love that is the divine life, and a generous God, if we have the eyes to see it.
