Bay Area Catholic PodcastGetting the most from Lent; seeing the universal in Tolkien

  • Tolkien! Oakland parishioner Lucia LaRocca gives us insight into the spiritual/moral dimensions of the top-of-the-charts works of this Catholic Convert. Tolkien’s world has characteristics of all great literature. Lucia also invites us to the March 1-2 presentations on Tolkien by scholar Joseph Pearce, himself a convert to the Faith.
  • Leonardo Defelippis is back from his latest tour in California, bringing his one-man live play on the life of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, Saint of Auschwitz to more than 3500 at Catholic parishes. This is the first of Ed’s special features, “On The Road With Leonardo Defilippis.” What did his audiences show him?
  • Father James McIlhone, Director of Biblical Formation for the Archdiocese of Chicago gives us tips on getting the most out of the Season of Lent. What does “Lent” mean, anyway?
  • Stacy Keach portrays the Gospel Writer John, drawing us into the presence of Christ in the Word of God, the dramatized Truth and Life Audio Bible, Catholic Edition, RSV. Did you know that the producers of this CD and app set had a Catholic theologian guiding the actors at all the recording sessions?
