Program Description: It’s the task you were born for: “Become a saint, and do so quickly,” urged Pope Saint John Paul II. “Destination: Sainthood” helps us to respond to this integral but overwhelming call by reminding us that running towards that difficult and worthy goal is the race we unworthy sinners must join, through the grace of God and the intercession of the communion of saints. “Destination: Sainthood” will inspire us along the sacred journey on which we are meant to embark: through inspiring discussions of Catholic hagiography (lives of the saints); theology; music; literature; art; gripping stories of faith; and moving conversations with callers. Your host is Poet, Author, and Theology Professor, Annabelle Moseley, joining you on the difficult, beautiful and humbling quest of a lifetime. We’ll work together to grow ever closer to the great cloud of witnesses. Journey with us!
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race set out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God…” (Hebrews 12:1-2)
