TAN Direction From the Rooftop

From the Rooftop is a podcast brought to you by TAN Books, in which Msgr. Patrick Winslow and Fr. Matthew Kauth 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.
