EP41 - Charge That Rhino, Holiness is Possible Today and Poco a Poco w/ Fr. Mark-Mary, CFR

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights", emblematic of the heroic life of Italian mountaineer and social activist Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to raw and authentic conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together!

Fr. Mark-Mary Ames, CFR is the Director of Communications and General Almoner of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal.  His two great loves are the Eucharist and the confessional and has dedicated his life to bringing both to God's people and God's people to both.



Episode Themes:

  1. Don't buy the lie that Holiness and living a beautiful Faith is not possible - it is but you have to have a strategy.
  2. Epic African rhino story!
  3. How the genesis story of the the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in the midst of incredible challenges is a testimony to this truth.
  4. Fr. Mark-Mary's new book: Habits for Holiness: Small Steps for Big Spiritual Progress.
  5. The three Ps that are critical to a healthy spiritual life: Plan, Prayer and People.
  6. Poco a Poco: we are all pilgrims journeying to the Father and we can get there if we focus on doing the next right thing, again and again.
  7. And much more!
