Welcome to Episode 22 of Among Women “Espresso Shot”
– a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.

Today’s topic: Devotion to the Holy Family 

Every year, in the month of February, the Catholic Church calls us to increase our devotion to the Holy Family. It may seem like Christmas has just passed and should we not be moving on? Not so fast. There’s a lot to be gained with this devotion. This short podcast is the second in a year-long series on the monthly devotions that the Church suggests for our prayer. Join me as I share a thoughts from St. John Paul II, ideas about my own nativity “prayer prompts” and a prayer from Pope Francis.
