How Can I Keep From Singing Podcast - Episode #1


bailey_po_01Welcome to “How Can I Keep from Singing,” a supplemental podcast in support of the Marian Cenacle Rosary Podcast. In this ‘faith in action’ series, host Susan Bailey shares from her own life how praying and singing the rosary, studying the word of God and practicing other spiritual exercises nourishes her faith and surrounds her with a shield of grace as she faces the trials of unemployment in her family. A song, often sung and written by Susan, will be featured with each podcast episode. May this series encourage you as you face the trials of this difficult economy, or any other trial in your life.

In Episode #1, titled “Feasting,” Susan shares how feasting on prayer, the scriptures, the mass and the Eucharist have strengthened her and surrounded her with grace. And how a very familiar prayer, and one line in particular, has given her much needed strength.
