The Good Catholic Life is taking a short Spring hiatus from live shows until early June. In the meantime, we’re bringing you some of our favorite shows from the past two years. Look for all-new shows to return after June 7.

Today we bring you an encore presentation of our discussion with Dr. Paul Gondreau. When the Gondreau family of Rhode Island got the opportunity to live in Rome for a semester while dad Paul taught theology for Providence College’s Rome program, they saw it as an opportunity for their five children, including eight-year-old Dominic who has cerebral palsy. But on Easter Sunday, Dominic had a heart-stopping and emotional embrace with Pope Francis that was captured and broadcast around the world. Dr. Paul Gondreau joined Michael Lavigne and Scot Landry to share how the moment came about and why he believes this was miraculous moment brought about by God to teach the world that Dominic and others like him have a special vocation to teach us how to love and through that love to rebuild His Church.

Complete shownotes may be found on the original airdate’s show page.
