Vocations Today with Rhonda Gruenewald
Fostering Vocations

Fostering Vocations

May 27, 2021

We have a special episode for you about fostering vocations! Fostering vocations should be encouraged in family life. If you do encourage your children with your words to think about a religious vocation, you never know if it will be your child, grandchild, or somewhere down the line that answers that special call from God to give his or her life in service to the Church and His people. We invited Thomas Vu to this episode to talk more about his family and discernment as a seminarian.

Priestly Vocations

Priestly Vocations

May 20, 2021

Priests pray a crucial role in the Church. Without priests, we do not have the Eucharist, confession, or anointing of the sick. To expand on this, we have Fr. Richard McNeillie, the Vocation Director of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. He joins us to talk more about vocations and his desire to become a priest. We are thankful for all our priests!

Everything Carmelite

Everything Carmelite

May 13, 2021

This week's podcast episode is all about the Carmelite Order. The reality of the Carmelite way of life remains the same today as almost five centuries ago: to live simply and always in the presence of God at the service of the Church. To help us dive in deeper we have a very special guest, Deacon Pier Giorgio Pacelli of Christ the King, OCD. He shares with us his discernment and what lead him to the Discalced Carmelites. In 2014, he became a Discalced Carmelite friar for the Washington Province. He is an inspiration!

Who are the Benedictines? They were founded in AD 529 by St. Benedict. This rule has proved to be a guide for countless souls for 15 centuries. Our very special guest, Br.

If you know a religious brother, please reach out to him. Let him know you are praying for him. Send him a card, maybe even a small donation for the monastery.

Who are the Jesuits?

Who are the Jesuits?

April 15, 2021

We have a very special treat for you in this episode! Fr. Robert Murphy is a Jesuit in Houston, TX and his community participated in Behind the Habit: A Virtual Look into Religious Life for Men. Fr. Murphy attended a Jesuit High School in New Orleans, and his parents gave him the freedom to follow God’s path and encouraged him to follow the faith. He first considered the priesthood as an altar server in middle school and later attended college for physical therapy and worked 3 years until he entered the Jesuits in 2003.

An interesting statistic from CARA: Nearly 50% of the newly ordained attended a Catholic elementary or middle school and about 40% attended a Catholic high school.

Family and Vocations

April 8, 2021

Family support plays a crucial role in religious vocations. Sr. M. Ignatia Hennebery, O.S.F., our guest in this episode, shares how her family helped her answer the call by regularly doing small things. They started adoration at their parish, prayed together, had a family home enthronement to the Sacred Heart, and parents gave blessings before bed. Share how your family helped you on your vocational journey?
