Freshly Brewed, Episode 46 – O Roma Felix

Welcome to this week’s episode of Freshly Brewed. This special edition was filmed in ROME! (To be specific, host Lindsay recorded it with Monica, FB supporter and fan, in the airport at the end of their trip overseas this fall.) During the episode, they recount stories from their trip, tell you about the ordination of Deacon Joe Baker, share about the many perspectives they were blessed to take in of St. Peter’s Basilica, and offer some thoughts on how to maintain perspective in the midst of whatever life brings our way.

Listen to the podcast right here!

* No photos are allowed during the Scavi tour or within St. Peter’s in the Eucharistic Chapel or at the tomb of St. John Paul II. Those were some of the most epic sights in the whole of the St. Peter’s experience; you’ll have to go see those for yourselves someday!
