On a Mission, Episode 12: Fran Pratt

Did you ever come into prayer with so much heaviness, grief, or misery that you just couldn’t put it into words? You might just need Fran Pratt. 

She’s my guest on this episode. She’s known online at The Litanist. That is, she writes litanies. They’re beautiful articulations of emotion and truth, giving individuals and communities words to pray about hard stuff. They offer words when there are no words. 

She wrote a book in 2019 compiling her litanies. You can read my review of her book here.  She serves as the Pastor of Worship and Liturgy at Peace of Christ Church in Round Rock, Texas, where she lives with her spouse and two kids. We talk about pastoring, mothering, writing, and some deep down theology – get ready for the sacred feminine and penal substitutionary atonement, folks. 

Episode 18: Episode 18: A Radical, Eucharistic Life with Jamie L. Manson On a Mission

Jamie L. Manson wrote the column entitled Grace on the Margins for the paper for 12 years. She recently left that post to become the President of Catholics for Choice. We talk about her journey as an out-lesbian Catholic journalist. We talk about reproductive health as a human right. We talk about her deep sacramental spirituality. We talk about Pope Francis…who, by the way… does he read Jamie’s columns? Take a listen and see what you think. Find notes and links about this episode at http://www.molleendupreedominguez.com
