#1: Welcome to the Sons of Thunder Podcast!!

Welcome to the Pod of Thunder!  On today’s kickoff show, we discuss what we hope to accomplish with this podcast, tips for having a fruitful Lent, and the patron saints of the podcast and why we chose them.

Check out the Festival of Forgiveness which took place in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs over the weekend.

Saint quote of the week
“Never forget that there are only two philosophies to rule your life: the one of the cross, which starts with the fast and ends with the feast. The other of Satan, which starts with the feast and ends with the headache” ~Fulton J. Sheen~

Challenge of the week
Part I: Go to a weekday mass once and see how it changes your day.
Part II: Take some time to think about why it is that you’re fasting during this time of Lent. Not just what you are doing or how well you’re sticking to your plan, but why you are doing it in the first place. Make sure that it is not to compare yourself to others, but to draw nearer to Christ in this beautiful season of the Church.
