Who knows what might have happened had Juliana of Cornillon ignored the Lord’s call to pave the way for the first celebration some 550 years prior. Here are stories of two women and their strong connection to the Feast of Corpus Christi.
Tune in to this month’s episode of The Water Jar podcast and discover (or perhaps rediscover) ways to live the liturgy and celebrate the good, true, and beautiful found within the Church’s June calendar.

Finding peace when struggling to make decisions, embracing our nothingness, seeking joy in the “hidden years,” and the connection between gratitude and peace. All that and more as we continue The Well’s Lenten series on Searching for and Maintaining Peace.
If you’re struggling with the “little pink book,” the gals recorded this episode for you. Also, we cover a peaceful March Madness tournament, the link between making a good confession and maintaining peace, how our expectations can often rob us of experiencing peace, and praying with the Litany of Humility.
We are reading and discussing chapters 11-15, pages 50-69 on this episode. And please note, even if you aren’t reading the book with us, please know there are plenty of nuggets that stand on their own and applicable to all. And if you are reading the book but doing so at a different pace, these Lenten episodes will not expire and will remain available on our podcast feed when you are ready to listen or re-listen.
Wherever you are in your journey, please come, join, and follow along.
Tons of wisdom from the podcast team in this episode covering chapters 5-10 in Searching for and Maintaining Peace. The ladies share on a variety of topics from opening “dirty laundry rooms” for Jesus, allowing the Good Shepherd to lead us to restful waters, how to journey with loved ones who are suffering, and rendering our hearts at the foot of the cross. Come, listen and join in the conversation by sharing your takeaways.

In this second week of Lent, we are reading and discussing pages 23-36 covering chapters 1-4. Humans have lost confidence in God, trying to find happiness on our own and consequently becoming unhappy in the process. We must regain our lost confidence by believing in Divine Providence. In his book, Fr. Jacques brings to light two principal obstacles preventing us from regaining confidence. The podcast team discusses these two obstacles in this episode.
