We have some pretty strong feelings on this topic… and it shows in this week’s episode.


The most important thing you’ll bring to your vocation—whether that’s religious life or family life—is your capacity to be a man or woman of communion.


Passing through purgatory is the experience that prepares us for heaven. There’s no greater insight into what purgatory is like than family life or community life.


This applies directly to mission, too. We can be obsessed with mission at the cost of communion… and that’s when your mission will dry up because it’s no longer connected to the vine.


So what does it mean to be a man or woman of communion? What does a life like that look like? We get into all of it in this conversation.
