Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I'm joined by author, evangelist, and pilgrimage guru Steve Ray to talk about the biblical roots of the papacy. Steve should know, as a convert to Catholicism himself he's written two fantastic books on the subject.

We discuss the Old Testament precedent for the pope, evidence from Scripture and history, and why we need a pope at all. It's a great conversation to share with your friends!

For more from Steve, check out his fantastic website for all of his resources including his two books Upon This Rock and The Papacy: What the Pope Does and Why It Matters.

My wife is going on a pilgrimage – maybe you should too!

She's joining Haley Stewart and Christy Isinger from the Fountain of Carrots Podcast on the Writer's & Relics pilgrimage – a bookish tour of England featuring places connected to Jane Austen, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, G.K. Chesterton and the English martyrs.
