This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: The Assumption of Mary

“Among Women” Guest: Woodeene Koenig – Bricker

This week I continue to recap my recent trip to France, as I attempted to discover some of my family’s roots in the little village of Lembeye. Also, as we enter the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer some perspectives on Our Lady’s Assumption into heaven, a feast day we celebrate on August 15. Joining me in conversation today is author and blogger, Woodeene Koenig-Bricker. Together we examine the themes in her latest book, Facing Adversity with Grace: Lessons from the Saints.
