GSR shares clips from our friends at  A Nun’s Life Ministry, which has a live prayer podcast on Monday (excluding holidays) at 4 p.m. Central Time and other live podcasts throughout the month: “Ask Sister,” “Motherhouse Road Trip” and “In Good Faith.” Dates and times for the full, live episodes are listed on their program schedule.
