Merry Christmas from Dr. Sri and the Ascension team! We're taking a break from our regular recording schedule to celebrate this beautiful Christmas octave, but if you're looking for some extra spiritual and theological enrichment, we encourage you to check out Episode 62 from the All Things Catholic Archives: "Christmas Through Jewish Eyes."
Please pray for me as I join Fr. Mike Schmitz, Sister Miriam, and other Catholic speakers at the FOCUS SLS Conference. Please pray that the Lord guides our words as we speak to thousands of Catholics and Christian young adults, and that the Holy Spirit guides their hearts into a deeper union with him.
