E48 Race and the Eucharist w/Fr. Josh Johnson
Race and the Eucharist w/Fr. Josh Johnson
Today on the show, Fr. Josh Johnson joins me to talk about his Pocket Guide to Adoration (https://ascensionpress.com/products/pocket-guide-to-adoration) racial justice, and the importance of the former to the latter.
Fr. Josh Johnson is the Vocations Director for the Diocese of Baton Rouge and is also the Pastor of Holy Rosary Catholic Church.
While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. One day, in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, he fell in love with Jesus and perceived the call to become a priest. He is a nationally recognized speaker and he presents regularly on the topics of conversion, virtue and vice, avoiding the near occasion of sin, growing in the spiritual life and forming intentional disciples of Jesus Christ across the racial divide. He is a presenter with Ascension Press on “Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass,“ YOU: Life, Love, and The Theology of the Body," “Rejoice: Advent Meditations with Mary,” “Rejoice: Advent Meditations with Joseph,” “No Greater Love” and “the 99.” He is also the author of “Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation,” “Pocket Guide to Adoration” and a contributing author of “Power & Grace: A Guide to the Catholic Sacraments.” You can keep in touch with Fr. Josh through his weekly podcast at https://media.ascensionpress.com/category/ascension-podcasts/askfrjosh/.
Prior to his ordination to the priesthood, Fr. Josh attended Southern University and graduated from St. Joseph’s Seminary College and Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans.
