  8. I stumbled upon discernment of spirits podcast. To be more precise, I did not stumble. Rather, it was the Lord’s answer to my prayer a year or so ago for more understanding of the Holy Spirit’s guidance in daily living. I love your podcast format. It’s interactive, real, practical and relatable. Awesome piece of work!! Thank you!!!

  9. Dear Father Gallagher:

    I have just concluded your Discernment of Spirits podcasts.
    I was not sure what to expect but I am happy to report that have found your discussions on the 14 rules of St. Ignatius to be very helpful in my spiritual life.

    Thank you,

  10. Dear Father Gallagher and Kris Mac Gregor,

    We are all in the midst of world-wide strange, unpredictable times yet through your explorations, dialogue, and sharing, you have allowed to share a path that leads us to greater knowledge, deeper understanding, catalytic movement through, with, and in the company of our Lord. This 14-movement podcast allows us to seek God, build on our faith (nurturing our consolations and trusting our desolations), and choose to share your insights with others in ways where we are blessed by His challenges, yet challenged by His blessings!
    This podcast series is so necessary, enriching and worthwhile. Thank you so much !

  11. Thank you for making these rules come to life and for making them available to all in this time of confusion and uncertainty for Christians .

  12. From Quebec, Canada,

    Although my 2020 summer retreat with the Ignatius exercises was in French, my follow-up with the retreat is in English with all the wonderful content that your site provides. Merci beaucoup!
    It’s like an ongoing retreat!
    Best wishes to your great team!

  13. Thank you so much for this wonderful apostolate. It’s a treasure of the Church. You have helped me and my family more than I can say. God bless you and your team.

  14. Father Gallagher thanks you. It was great listening treat and I’m putting knowledge in practice. Thank you very much.
    May the Lord bless you!

  15. Father G. and Kris thanks for always putting out a very good “think-and-do” prayer podcast. I wish I had access to more people around me. I’m house-bound. If they would just try these podcasts how happy our Lord and Savior would be! I know these people would be helped to learn about one way to renew their relationship with God!
    Are we going to have future webinars or podcasts that focus on what seniors’ can do to aid in discernment of God’s will for them? Life is so different for me as a senior and I find myself wondering what I can do to help others and earn heaven.

  16. + Life-changing podcast on the Ignatian discerning of spirits. I loved every minute & can remember a great deal of what I heard. Thank you for providing this!
