I wanted to let you know that this American Protestant is really enjoying your Pray-as-you-go podcasts. I think the whole thing is done very well. The great selection of music is one of my favorite aspects, but I also appreciate the time given after a thoughtful question is asked, and that a real Bible selection is read. I like the variety of speakers. I also appreciate that a couple of week's worth of podcasts are available, as I'm not very consistent with my downloading days. I have downloaded various religious podcasts, but yours is the only one I have kept coming back to. It's a great thing, and I hope it is blessing many people.
Thank you so much for producing these meditations and scripture readings. I am a Baptist Youth Pastor from Texas - yes, I know, probably the last person you would expect to find listening to a Jesuit Podcast. PAYG has given me strength and confidence in the Lord. I listen to it in the morning so that I can sit and be quiet before the hectic day begins. The advent podcasts have been especially meaningful. My wife has a back injury that is extremely painful and her family is going through some hardship. These podcasts help me minister to her. If God promises to make Juniper grow in the desert then he can restore all things in us. Thank you again. God bless.
I have found this 'Pray-as-you-go' resource to truly be a "treasure buried in my backyard". Using it in the car is my favorite place as sadly this is one of the few places these days to be alone with one's own thoughts. It's also become a mission for me of sorts, I've yet to burn a week to CD and not run into someone within a few hours that would greatly enjoy such a thing in their life, regardless of where they worship or even if they don't at all! I pray the great work of this site continues to grow.
I don’t really know how to express my gratitude for your Pray-as-you-go meditation. It is nearly a year since a friend started giving me the week's program on CDs and now I depend on them to start my day. I am an English woman, now a widow, grandmother and great grandmother. As a cradle Catholic there have been many adjustments to conform to living here in Uruguay, South America, but I first learnt the value of silent meditation at Prinknash Abbey, Gloucester during my frequent visits to England. Now there is no more traveling as I am almost eighty-eight but you do the traveling for me and I am eternally grateful. I love the style, I love the music. You help so much to keep me on the right road daily. Thank you.
I learned about Pray-as-you-go from surfing the internet. I have an extremely busy lifestyle with my family, work, and school. I subscribed to the PAYG podcast and download it onto my mp3 player so that I can take it to work with me. Whether I'm on the road or just have a few minutes of down time at work, I can listen and pray along with the podcast. It has been a real blessing for me and has helped to open up my prayer life. I enjoy the music. It really helps me to reflect on what is shared and prayed. The review of the day and the body and breathing exercises have been helpfull as well. I've recommended the website and podcast to all of my friends, both Catholic and Protestant. I love it and don't miss a single day. Thank you for this most excellent resource!
