Podcast with J.D. Flynn

J.D. Flynn, editor-in-chief of Catholic News Agency and co-host of the popular Catholic podcast, The Editor’s Desk from CNA, talks with Katie Prejean McGrady about the Blessed Mother’s importance to his family and how we can talk about Mary with non-Catholics.


Mary Is the True Embodiment of Femininity

Mary is a model of true womanhood because she is fierce, formidable, and feminine, writes Claire Swinarski, the creator and host of The Catholic Feminist.

Joseph, Her Most Chaste Spouse

St. Joseph’s love and devotion to Christ and Our Lady is an example to all believers, but his role in salvation history is particularly masculine and is revealed through his chastity, according to Patrick Neve, host of The Crunch podcast.

Mary, Mother to Our Families

J.D. Flynn got some valuable advice from a priest before he and his wife were married: Pray the Rosary daily. The couple didn’t do it at first, but as they’ve made it a regular part of their lives they’ve seen the difference it’s made in their young family.
