Every now and then you meet a person whose life blows your mind.

I recently met that guy while in Israel.

He’s a living treasure-trove of knowledge spanning the last six decades of Church history.

But it’s his personal history that wows.

(You can read all about it in his incredible memoir Micca Bacain Big Size Women Parkas Winter Padded Women Jacket Worm Hood Fur Plus Size Casual Coats Outwear.)

What makes his life so special?

No joke.

And boy, does he have stories. And you’re about to hear some of them. For example:

  • How Sheen prepared for his Emmy Award winning television show
  • MILLY Womens Michelle Blouse Blouse
  • The beautiful encounter between Venerable Fulton Sheen and St. John Paul II
  • Some inside scoop on Vatican II

And while he’s lived quite the life. Msgr. Franco isn’t not done yet!

That friend with whom I spoke so many years ago, Dr. Michael Barber, is my guest on this episode of the Art of Catholic. He wrote a book on this very topic (Salvation: What Every Catholic Needs to Know). And we’re about to continue that discussion begun so many years ago.

We’re going to discuss:

  • Minibee Women's Cotton Linen Button Detail Print Hood Coat Fit US MXL
  • How exactly the Cross is a revelation of love
  • Why the Cross was even necessary
  • The role of good works in salvation
  • The strange relationship between economics and salvation
  • The big difference between salvation and redemption
  • MINICAT Touch Screen Design Premium Microfiber Leather Small Crossbody Cell Phone Wallet Purse With Makeup Mirror

This is one of those meaty episodes for which the Art of Catholic is well-known. And you’re going to love it!

God bless!

Yes, I’m aware of the liturgical calendar.

But too often we lower the sails of our spiritual ship because we think “that season is over.”

People, the Spirit is never subject to a calendar. And it’s extremely dangerous to think He is.

Namely, the Holy Spirit.

The great Carmelite Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D, says that we emphasize the moral work at the expense of the theological work. What does he mean?

The irony, of course, is that the Holy Spirit can do a far better job than we can.
