Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by author, speaker, and star of the  Word on Fire show, Rachel Bulman. Rachel joins me to talk about Catholic relationships, marriage, and how to understand and approach these from the perspective of the rich teachings of the Catholic Church, as understood through the lens of a convert to Catholicism.

There's so much in this wonderful conversation. We talk about our perspectives of dating, coming from the Evangelical Christian world, to the beauty of the sacramental view of matrimony in Catholicism, how to live out that daily call to spousal love, how to understand the vocation to marriage, celibacy, the priesthood and religious life, and how to impart these values to our children. 

Such a wonderful conversation and I truly hope you take something valuable away from this rich discussion.

To find out more about Rachel you can visit her website. Check out her book, Becoming Wife, available everywhere books are sold. And check out Meet the Bulman's from Word on Fire.
