Catholic Roundup 105: Catholic Speaker Month, Spotlight on Chris Padgett

Play

 

In 2009, Matthew Warner spearheaded a very successful  Support a Catholic Speaker Month, where he enlisted 100 Catholic Bloggers to write about 100 Catholic speakers.  This year, Brandon Vogt, the author of The Church and New Media, is hosting Support a Catholic Speaker Month 2012 with the same premise.

From Chris Padgett FacebookI signed up to do a profile of Catholic musician, author and speaker Chris Padgett.  Chris is a convert to the Catholic church who used to front the contemporary christian band, Scarecrow and Tinman in the 1990s.  Since his conversion to the Catholic Church, which he recalls on his now dormant podcast, Chris has released 5 solo albums, has earned his masters in theology at Franciscan University, and is working on his PhD.  He has  3 published books,  Wholly Mary Mother of God, Spirituality you can LIVE with, and Not Ready for Marriage, Not Ready for Sex.

Chris’ most enduring passion is as a teacher and lay evangelist.  He is a dynamic speaker, full of warmth, humanity, humour, and clearly on fire for Jesus. On the Talks page on his website,  Chris has outlines for over a dozen talks he has presented on love and marriage, chastity, spirituality, Marian theology, men’s spirituality, and youth talks.  A number of his talks are available from Lighthouse Catholic Media.

For this episode 105 of the Catholic Roundup Podcast I shine a spotlight on Chris Padgett with an interview we did for Catholic Roundup 65 in 2009, a sample from his talk, Get to Know the Mother of God, on Lighthouse Catholic Media, and a new interview recorded today.  I also play a couple of his songs, Be My Everything and You Can Hold My Hand.   Enjoy.

Podcast Roundup on Blessed Kateri

By Cmichael1977 (Own work) [CC-BY-SA-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsToday, July 14, our friends in the United States commemorate the feast of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha.  In Canada, we commemorate her feast day on April 17.  She will be canonized this October 21, 2012.

In honor of her feast day, I present a Roundup of Podcast and Video Links Where you Can find out more about Blessed Kateri (soon to be Saint Kateri).

 

From Wikipedia:  ”Kateri Tekakwitha (pronounced [ˈgaderi degaˈgwita] in Mohawk), originally known as Catherine Tekakwitha and informally known as Lily of the Mohawks (1656 – April 17, 1680) was an Algonquin and Iroquois Native American religious lay woman from New France and an early convert to Roman Catholicism. Consequently, she was shunned and exiled by her tribe.[citation needed] She died at the age of 24 after professing her vows of virginity. Known for her chastity and corporal mortification of the flesh, she is the first Native American woman to be venerated in the Roman Catholic Church. Tekakwitha was beatified by Blessed Pope John Paul II in 1980. On February 18, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially announced at Saint Peter’s Basilica that Tekakwitha will be canonized on October 21, 2012″
