On Earth as It Is in Heaven with Fr. Josh Johnson

Jeff Cavins

What does it mean for the Church to be united “on earth as it is in Heaven?” In this episode, Jeff and guest Fr. Josh Johnson respond to this question and discuss Fr. Josh’s new book: On Earth as It Is in Heaven: Restoring God’s Vision of Race and Discipleship.

If we have the blessing to be proximate to Jesus in the Eucharist, how can we not be inspired to invite everyone we know to meet Him as well?

Check out Fr. Josh’s new book On Earth As It Is in Heaven: Restoring God’s Vision of Race and Discipleship here!

Encounter an authentically Catholic perspective on God’s vision for the universal Church to be united “on earth as it is in heaven.”

From Fr. Josh Johnson, co-author of the popular Pocket Guide to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, author of Broken and Blessed and host of the weekly podcast “Ask Fr. Josh,” comes On Earth as It Is in Heaven: Restoring God’s Vision for Race and Discipleship.

This book follows Fr. Josh’s journey of serving as the only Black priest in the diocese of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Fr. Josh draws from the riches of Scripture, personal experience as a Catholic of color, his priestly ministry, and the wisdom of the Church to encourage Catholics to understand more deeply the call of Christ to make disciples of “all peoples and nations (Matt. 28:19).”

With the help of On Earth as it is in Heaven, Catholics can work towards bringing the kingdom of Heaven to earth by reaching out to people of all backgrounds.

  • Read practical tips for encouraging discipleship and bringing unity into your community and parish
