Fall 2015 - Episode 3: Wake-up and Make The Coffee
"Mission is a duty about which one must say ‘Woe to me if I do not evangelize’ (1 Corinthians 9:16)...redemption and mission are acts of love [because] those who proclaim the Gospel participate in the charity of Christ."

--Pope Francis
This segment will encourage viewers to get more involved in their faith by doing more engaging than complaining. It is based on a chapter in Teresa Tomeo’s new book “Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag.” Our guest clip features a woman who started a very popular Adoration ministry after some very profound experiences she had at Franciscan University.
