Did you know that there is a connection between Theology of the Body and the Rosary? And that the Rosary is, in fact, a SPIRITUAL WEAPON?
Join me today for two fascinating conversations about these connections (and the connection between my guests!) with my first guest Debbie Staresinic, author of her new book Theology of the Body Rosary Meditations: Contemplating Christ’s Love for His Bride the Church.
Debbie has given us a tremendous gift in this first ever work for devotion and prayer that integrates the beauty of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body with the beauty of the Rosary.
Debbie is a graduate of the Theology of the Body Institute in Philadelphia, PA and serves on the Board of Directors at Ruah Woods in Cincinnati, OH, an organization whose mission is to spread the message of Theology of the Body throughout the world.
Then, we’ll hear from a Faith & Good Counsel favorite guest, Fr. Donald Calloway, priest and author of his latest work Champions of the Rosary: The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon
Fr. Calloway will speak with us the historical aspects of how the rosary is, indeed, a spiritual weapon from it’s very beginnings….and how our obedience to it wields mighty power in the battle against the evil one.
Before Fr. Calloway’s truly miraculous conversion to Catholicism, he was a high school dropout who had been kicked out of a foreign country, institutionalized twice, and thrown in jail multiple times.
After his radical conversion he earned a B.A. in Philosophy and Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, M.Div. and S.T.B. degrees from the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, and an S.T.L. in Mariology from the International Marian Research Institute in Dayton, Ohio.
Fr. Calloway has written many academic articles, and is an author of an ever growing number of books, which can be found on his website.
