Customer Reviews

Real, encouraging and thoughtful

Outstanding show that addresses meaningful and highly relevant topics in an accessible and enjoyable way. It motivates me to stay faithful and engaged in living out my calling. This recent revert is hooked.

Overall enjoyed.

I listened to a few podcasts which I really enjoyed listening to. There was one in particular that confused me a bit. It was the one about the New Age. I understood the bit on reiki being dangerous and some eastern practices. Those were very clear. However I am confused about why things are getting lumped in that were practiced in Europe and earlier (ie, Jesus’ time and prior) specifically essential oils.
Depending on what part of the world you are in your “ordinary practices” will differ extremely. Which would include resorting to more natural resources. There is a ton of science and documentation in Europe (hence 3 European models of essential oil usage) that can scientifically explain the chemistry between that and your body. Then the usage during Jesus’ time and the ritual of anointing with oils currently to this date.
I am a cradle catholic and this is a concern for me because my health failed due to western medicine and it has taken tons of searching holistically and prayer to get better. Since I do have a medical background and plenty of friends and colleagues in different parts of the medical field it’s a bit unsettling to hear this.
We are also meant to care for the unborn but have not yet as a church addressed that vaccines have aborted baby fetus in them. In some of these vaccines aborted fetal tissue is what the vaccine is cultivated. Is this ordinary means?
It’s just very confusing as I am thinking about the science that has been done to prove that chemical compounds aren’t always the best way to go.

Needs to be louder but great talks.

I really enjoy all the interviews and talks, there is a lot of great stuff to listen too that will really make you laugh, cry and live your life better. My only personal complaint is the audio is really low on a lot of podcasts. I work outside and even with earbuds it is hard for me to hear the conversation and I end up listening to something else. Maybe I am loosing my hearing, sorry. Can you PLEASE make it louder.
God bless you all.
