089: John Michael Talbot on Conversion & Community

I’ve met a lot of converts to Catholicism over the years. But John Michael Talbot is unique, to say the least.

And it’s not just because he’s a multi-platinum selling, Grammy / Dove award winning Contemporary Christian Music pioneer.

It’s more.

Lots of people convert, but John Michael has embarked on a full-fledged movement to transform the way Catholics live…which continues to this day.

And the story of his life will both intrigue, inspire, and perhaps even provoke you to take a look at your own life. It did for me.

Among other things we’ll cover:

  • How he became Catholic
  • How the Doobie Brothers saved his life (yup!)
  • Why he believes St. Francis of Assisi is the key to renewal (Check out his brand new book “Francis of Assisi’s Sermon on the Mount“)
  • His take on the direction of America
  • Why he loves the Eastern Catholic Church
  • His emphasis upon the role of the Holy Spirit (& Our Lady)

So sit back and enjoy a wide-ranging and fascinating conversation with John Michael Talbot, an icon for our times.

God bless!

Matthew

P.S. New pilgrimage announcement coming soon. And I’ve got a hint for you…St. John Paul II and his favorite Lady.
