Cardinal Burke On the Marian Catechist Apostolate & Practical Atheism

Episode 114

This is the second part of our three part interview with Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke. In this episode His Eminence speaks to us about the Marian Catechist Apostolate and why you should consider membership to it, but he also talks about practical atheism in the Church today. I think you’ll like what he has to say.

Every podcast has to have a platform in order to present your podcast episodes. Captivate is by far the very best podcast hosting platform (player) I know of, and it’s the one I’ve been using for more than a year. You also need a good, specialized website. That’s why I recommend Podcast Websites, which is who this website is from.
