August 12, 2018 – Kelly Wahlquist & Allison Gingras

What a joy today to have both Kelly Wahlquist and Allison Gingras with us. Kelly is a Catholic evangelist, speaker, and founder of WINE: Women In the New Evangelization., and Allison is Catholic blogger, author, speaker, social media evangelist, and hosts a podcast. We spoke about the new book edited by Kelly and written by a number of women associated with WINE. Gaze upon Jesus: Experiencing Christ’s Childhood through the Eyes of Women is a wonderful book. In it you will find references to scripture readings, explaining them in a way you may not have thought of before. Then, there is biblical fiction, placing you right into the story, then writings on virtue, and a modern look at how the story still has meaning now. Perhaps my favorite part of the book is the visio divina – contemplating the Lord through sacred images. There are full color copies of Vatican paintings, a description of them, and a way to pray with them. This book is a 10! I was enthralled, and then so grateful to speak to Kelly and Allison. After listening, you can go to catholicvineyard.com to get the book and join the virtual book club!
