A Saint for Our Times (with Christine Wohar)

My new book, Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday, is available to order! We are hosting a mini book club, right here in the podcast each week. I hope you will join us!

This week’s guest is Christine Wohar, author of Finding Frassati and following His Path to Holiness, all about the young saint Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. Do you know his life story? Christine Wohar shares insights from her life and her book about ways thatBlessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is indeed a “saint for our times.”

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


Shownotes

Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati shows us that the ordinariness of life is where holiness is possible.


Do you have a unique relationship with a saint? Or have you ever felt like one of God’s saints has “chosen  you” and popped up in your life for a special reason? I share a little bit about Don Dilindo Ruotolo, author of the Surrender Novena we discussed a couple of weeks ago. This novena helps us to focus on the ultimate goodness and superiority of God’s plans over our plans all the time and in all things.

At the end of today’s show, I respond to a question from Kelsie, a mom who asks for advice about how to get  started as a freelance writer. 

I also share with you how you can get access to the free playlist I put together for Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday. It’s a collection of songs that I find inspiring on the themes I cover in the book, and I hope you will enjoy listening and praying along with it too. You can get the playlist when you text the word WHISPER to 33-777

At the end of today’s show, we continue our mini book club for Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday. This week we focus on Chapter 7, all about meeting God in prayer.

My book, You Are Enough: What Women of the Bible Teach You About Your Mission and Worth, is available for order! Use the code, GIRLFRIENDS to receive ten percent off your order. Don’t miss out on this special available exclusively to listeners of the Girlfriends podcast.
