The Gist -- Don't Miss It!


A huge shout out of love and congratulations to my dear friends and fellow Faith & Family bloggers Danielle Bean and Rachel Balducci and their partner Carolee McGrath on the launch of their brand new television program on CatholicTV — The Gist!

I was so blessed to appear on the premier episode of The Gist, where we chatted about the topic of “working moms” (and all moms are working moms!) and my new book, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. I’ll share the video of that first program below and I know that you are going to love The Gist as much as I do. Honestly, as soon as I heard about this program I knew I’d love it, but watching the girls on this first episode made my so happy and excited. Please join me in praying for Danielle, Rachel and Carolee and the whole team at Catholic TV for the success of this groundbreaking program for women. And a huge thank you to Fr. Robert Reed for green-lighting a greatly needed resource for us!

The Gist airs both on television and online weekly. Tune in every Wednesday morning for a new show at 10:30 with rebroadcasts Thursday at 8:30 p.m., Friday at 4 p.m., Saturday at 6:30 a.m., Monday at 8 a.m. and Tuesday at 10 p.m. (all times Eastern), or catch it any time on
