By now, I’ve appeared on over a dozen radio shows. While I’m not a veteran, I am certainly no novice to radio. I’ve been on fast-paced, 7-minute segments with three interviewers, and I’ve been on the hour-long, more casual conversations with one radio host.
My favorite are the hour-long conversations. They remind me of the “carefree timelessness” that Matthew Kelley coined in his book, Rediscover Catholicism. I miss the gift of time. It’s so seldom that any of us spend a chunk of time beyond the ten or fifteen minutes of our day, yet those hours that go by when we choose to devote ourselves to a conversation are often the most meaningful and profound.
I have to admit that this interview with Sr. Marie on SiriusXM’s Catholic Channel, Pathways of Learning, has been – by far – the best interview I’ve done to date.
By best, I mean that the questions were important. They weren’t generalizations or speculations. Sr. Marie understood my heart. She spoke directly to it, which I believe allowed me to be more authentic in my responses. It was a conversation, yes, an interview, yes, but it was far more than that. It was an encounter of the heart.
Take a listen for yourself. It is worth the hour of your time.
