When I moved from Milwaukee to Cincinnati to join Dynamic Catholic, I had to leave a lot behind.
Friends, family, a great parish, and a thriving ministry I started with some of my best friends.
But one of the hardest things to leave behind was my incredible spiritual director.
Finding help to grow spiritually is really hard. The good ones are all taken up, everyone you ask is super busy, and even if you can find someone who is willing to give you the time, you might not connect in that specific relationship.
On the other hand, everyone I know who serves as a spiritual director talks about how busy they are, how they get asked all the time, and how they are constantly turning people away. In fact, I know some priests who refuse to do spiritual direction altogether because they get asked so often!
We can’t replace the experience of one-on-one spiritual direction, but what if you could get insight from incredible spiritual directors and get some of their best advice, tips, or recommended spiritual practices? Wouldn’t you love to get to pick the brain of some of the best men and women of faith?
That’s exactly why I started my newest project.
I’m launching a podcast to help people who want to grow in their faith get access to some of the best Catholic leaders and spiritual directors I can get my hands on.
The goal of the podcast is simple: I want to talk to great Catholic leaders, spiritual directors, and incredible men and women of faith to tease out some of their best spiritual practices, tips for prayer, favorite scripture verses, recommended books, and whatever else might help you grow in your faith.
The podcast is called The Best Catholic Podcast and it can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or Google Play. These people would never call themselves the best Catholics - and God help you if you think I’m the best Catholic. The goal of the podcast is to help YOU be the best Catholic you can be.
I'm hoping you'll do two things:
I want to help people live better lives. Better personal lives, better spiritual lives, and better parishes. Church and life can be better. I hope this podcast helps you live life just a little better.
And please let me know what you think. Reply to this email, message me on facebook or instagram, and tell me what you think of the first episode!
Thanks for reading everyone, and God bless,
My name is Dominick Albano and I'm an author, speaker, and consultant.
