Today, Fr. Josh answers a comment from John Sayre: “#AskFrJosh Is there a way I could get a list of the saints that Father mentioned in this video? I’ll be honest I was not familiar with most of those names. I’d like to learn more about them. I know Aquinas, Francis, and St Martin de Pores because my birthday is on his feast day, beyond that a lot of those names were new to me. Thank you so much for the information.”

Meet Fr. Josh Johnson

While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. Then, one day in adoration, he fell in love with Jesus and received the call to become a priest.

Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
