Why Catholic Fiction Matters (with Jacqueline Brown)

Our guest this week is Jacqueline Brown, author of the Catholic fiction series The Light Series. Jacqueline tells about her journey from a practicing clinical psychologist to Catholic fiction writer. Jacqueline shares about making time for beauty and art in everyday lives and the importance of Catholic fiction as a genre.

For better or for worse, fiction shapes our world and the society around us. When we as Catholics participate in the creation and consumption of fiction, we allow our voice and our story to take part in that shaping.
