The Eucharist and the Call to Holiness

Episode Summary

Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers, well-known Catholic speaker, EWTN personality and author of the books, Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality and Father Augustus Tolton: The Slave Who Became the First African-American Priest, relates to us how the Eucharist has been a source of strength and grace in his life.

Episode Notes

From an early age, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers felt an irresistible desire to serve Our Lord in the Mass. His personal journey took him from contemplating religious orders in a Benedictine monastery to realizing his vocation as a husband and father of four; from being a successful law enforcement professional to leaving it behind to become a prolific Catholic evangelist. His love for Christ is profound and infectious, and he shares with us how the Eucharist has been instrumental as he discerned his vocation, overcame challenges, and made life-changing decisions to follow the Lord’s call for his life.
