Vocation and the Journey: Interview with Radio Maria

I did an interview with a friend who works at Radio Maria.  While I can’t stand hearing my recorded voice, the content may help anyone with questions on vocation or discernment.  Forgive my grogginess…I only had one cup of coffee…

  I wrote an article recently for Covenant Eyes on the subject of “Why Marriage Won’t Cure Your Porn Problem.” In a nutshell, we need to have cultivated discipline and mastery of self before we take our marital vows, not after.  There’s no magical power in the wedding ring; it isn’t forged in the fires of Mt.
