The Life of Jesus Christ in a Year

The Life of Jesus Christ in a Year: From the Visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich is a podcast  from TAN that takes you through one of the most extraordinary books ever published. Follow along daily as Father Edward Looney works his way through the classic four-volume set, The Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations, by reading a passage from the book and then giving his commentary. Discover the visions of the famous 19th-century Catholic mystic, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, a nun who was privileged by God to behold innumerable events of biblical times.

Anne Catherine’s visions included the birth, life, public ministry, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, as well as the founding of His Church. Besides describing persons, places, events, and traditions in intimate detail, she also sets forth the mystical significance of these visible realities. Here is the infinite love of God incarnate and made manifest for all to see, made all the more striking and vivid by the accounts Blessed Anne has relayed.

From the Rooftop

From the Rooftop is a podcast from TAN hosted by Msgr. Patrick Winslow and Fr. Matthew Kauth. These two priests invite you to join their conversation out in the open air, looking out at the world around us from the rooftop of the Church. Together with right reason, clear thinking, and the light of faith, we can better understand the world we live in and all the ways in which we encounter it. Each episode discusses topics ranging from the joy found in acts such as true devotion, the proper celebration of liturgical seasons, and aging gracefully to the compassion and charity necessary to manage ourselves in a fallen world with difficult personality types, progressive ideologies, extreme narcissism, and more.

The Authority with Joseph Pearce introduces you to the men and women behind history’s greatest works of literature.

Till & Keep

Till & Keep explores a simpler and more integrated way of life that makes virtue easier and God the center of everything. Host Jason Craig shows how the primordial command from God to Adam, to till and keep the garden, applies whether you toil on a farm or in a concrete jungle. Join in and explore the connection of the interior life to agrarian life, spiritual warfare to manual labor, and the economy of salvation to local economies, and be inspired to glorify God through prayer and work alongside family and neighbors.

The Mystical City of God in a Year

What do we know about Jesus and Mary? For starters, what the evangelists recorded in the gospels. Throughout Church history, mystics have received visions of the life of Jesus and Mary and recorded them as biographies. One such mystic was Venerable Maria of Agreda who authored The Mystical City of God, a four-volume book totaling more than 2,000 pages. It’s a daunting task to read, but Marian theologian Fr. Edward Looney has partnered with TAN Books to read it in a year. Join him as he reads and provides reflections daily.
