  1. Wow, what an incredible interview with Emilio! It’s so exciting to hear that he wants to make more family-friendly movies. His openness about his spiritual journey is touching & inspiring! I hope this movie moves many hearts!

    • I just won a DVD of The Way from The Practicing Catholic blog! Obviously I don’t need two copies so please consider me no longer eligible. I really enjoyed Emilio’s interview!!! I also liked what Dorothy had to say… even though I’m not a mom. 😉

  2. Just listened to the interviews on this podcast. Inspiring interview. I’m looking forward to seeing the inspiring movie “The Way.”
    Enter me in the contest — I know that my mom would like to see it too!

    God Bless.

    What a fantastic set of interviews, Lisa! Thank you for doing both of these. Emilio was delightful… and I am so impressed that you and he got to visit! You can also enter me in the contest 🙂 Thank you!

  4. Thank you so much for such great guests this last podcast. Although I’m not a mom, I still enjoy listening to you and your guests about the road that is being a Catholic mom. I also really enjoyed hearing that someone is out there trying to bring us more movies like The Way and Mighty Macs. I enjoy taking my nieces to the movies but I usually have a difficult time finding something appropriate for their varying ages. Please consider me for the contest copy of The Way. Prayers to you and your audience for a Blessed and Joyous Lent.
