In this 50th episode, Fr. Steve and Ashley talk about the virtue of Truthfulness, as mentioned by Romano Guardini in his book, Learning the Virtues That Lead You To God.  We have an obligation as Christians to speak the truth always, while recognizing that truthfulness needs also the virtues of courage and love for the person with whom we are speaking with to aid in its fruitfulness.Thank you for listening to our podcast.

In this episode, Fr. Steve and Ashley continue talking about living the life of virtue. Virtues show the potential of man and what he is destined for. Like we spoke about in our last episode, we are created for freedom and virtues help us attain that freedom, but they also help provide order. True order is understanding that God alone is God. Disorder comes when we leave virtue in pursuit of our own self-seeking desires, and God is no longer on the throne of our hearts.Thank you for listening to our podcast.

In this episode, Fr. Steve and Ashley are back with a new series on the virtues. First, we look at the reason for pursuing virtue and remind ourselves to focus on our mission of attaining radical holiness through surrendering everything to the Lord. If we really want to grow in holiness, He will be with us and provide us with the grace to do so. In order to pursue virtue, we need to have an accurate understanding of freedom and what it really means to be free! Hint: it's not what the world says it is. We are created for freedom!Thank you for listening to our podcast. Please leave us a rating and/or review, and share on social media or with a friend!

We are back from our summer break! In this episode, Fr. Steve and Ashley take a step back and regroup before heading into a new series. Do we believe God is who He says He is?

In this episode, Fr. Steve and Ashley talk about the ways in which God speaks to us and continues to purify us on the spiritual journey. Even as we've grown and healed in part, there are always more ways in which the Lord invites us to surrender to Him. We need to be emptied more in order to be filled! It's not always about surrendering "more," but responding to grace and making more room for God to work in our hearts and lives.Email us at ashley@rootedinthereallyreal.com with questions or prayer intentions.
