A momma's prayer is a powerful prayer! In this episode of Protagonists of Change we explore the prayer of mothers, see the fruit that was bared and learn from their example.

First Darnell shares why his mother's bad storytelling might be a strength in her prayer life.

Then we speak to Jim Coleman, an actor and lead of St. Luke Productions show "Tolton: From Slave to Priest" to learn about his background as an actor and the life of Fr. Augustus Tolton, the first African-American ordained to the priesthood. We learn about the fruits of of Fr. Tolton's life and his legacy in the church today. And guess what, both Jim and Fr. Tolton have strong praying mommas!

Finally we learn about the life of St. Monica, a momma who prayed so hard it led to the conversion of one of the most important Catholic Theologians in the Church, St. Augustine of Hippo!

Culture and the New Normal

''For Such a Time as This''

The pandemic has been a time that has allowed people the opportunity to slow down, reflect and reevaluate their life. Russell Richard is among those people who took advantage of that opportunity and actively processed what was happening around him. Those observations have become a book, "Beyond Words: An Intersection of Philosophy, Inspiration and Poetry."

In this episode of For Such a Time as This, Larry sits down with Russell to discuss the novel. They take stock of all of the years' big moments and the changes that have come around because of them. They also ponder the cultural change that has come about because of the pandemic and ask how we move forward with a new normal, learning from all we learned.

Find Your Saint Posse

''As It Was''

What originally started as a project to look at Saints whose lives we could use as examples of how to seek God through this COVID-19 pandemic quickly turned into an exercise to identify Saints that could become part of your posse - that is Saints you can grow with.
