Catholic Connection – Dec 30, 2022 – Hour 1

Best of “Catholic Connection” with Scott L. Smith, Giovanni Vitale and Dr. Scott French.


Segment 1 – Consecration to St. Joseph for Children and Families
“Protect your family! Entrust your family to St. Joseph. Why? Because God, Himself, did. God entrusted the Holy Family to St. Joseph to keep them safe, and so should you. Drawing on the wealth of the Church’s living tradition, Fr. Donald H. Calloway, MIC and co-author Scott L. Smith, Jr., call on all of us to turn to St. Joseph, entrust ourselves, our children and families, our Church, and our world to our spiritual father’s loving care. Watch for wonders when the Universal Patron of the Church opens the floodgates of Heaven to pour out graces into your family’s lives.”  (Originally aired August 11, 2022)

Scott L. Smith, Jr. is a Louisiana author, attorney, and father of five. He is also a blogger (see below) and co-host of the Catholic Nerds Podcast.

Segment 3 & 4 – Eucharistic Miracles and More…
(Originally aired December 19, 2022)

Dr. Scott French is a practicing board certified Emergency Physician who noted the rapidly increasing rates of depression, suicides, and other behavioral disorders among our youth. In the process of searching for a solution, Dr. French was able to view the Shroud of Turin in 2015. This spurred a search for the full truth, and ultimately led Scott to Father Robert Spitzer’s Magis Center in 2015, and subsequently became a volunteer and board member.
