Brief description:

On today’s episode, Andrew and Jason dig into the foundations and fundamentals of their faith life. Why are they Catholic? Before they can answer that question though, it’s necessary to take a look at a couple of other questions: Why believe in religion at all? And of all the religions in the world, why Christianity? The first part of a two-episode mini-series, they touch on moral relativism, and how Christianity isn’t just about being a good person or following a set of rules; it’s being in a relationship with God. They also announce some exciting news off the top–you can now find the Road from Emmaus podcast on Fountain of Love and Life!
