The Hour

By Renewal Ministries

Pope St. John Paul II famously declared, "The Hour of the Laity has struck!" These are unprecedented times. Every week new challenges and opportunities confront those trying to live an authentically Catholic life. The Hour examines the 'signs of the times' to draw out practical, personal, and spiritual insights to help you grow in holiness and build the Kingdom. Hosted by Pete Burak but driven by inspiring guests, listeners can expect weekly, fast moving, and Spirit-filled conversations.
