The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Jan 27, 2021

This week, we welcome a special guest for the first in a three-episode series: Jackie Mulligan of Reform Wellness.


“It’s ok to not be ok… and it’s also ok to want to be ok.”


God loves and accepts us as we are, in all the messiness of our weakness. And his love also draws us to renewal; to real change that leads to real holiness, happiness, and a life that’s abundant.


Life-changing renewal is possible and it’s what God wants for us. But it doesn’t happen by accident.


It takes intention. It takes risk. It takes very honestly asking yourself, But, really… how am I doing? If the answer demands an overhaul of your life, there will be temptation to put it off—don’t give in! Fight through that resistance. This is God’s initiative.


Because if you don’t, well, as a very honest friend of Fr Angelus’ once told him, “If they wrote a book about your life, this would be a really boring chapter.”


And a life that’s a little too safe and comfy and boring is an enemy of holiness. So let God change it. Let him change you.
