Steve’s Talks & Real Audio

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I talk to Steve Ray, author, speaker, and Catholic evangelist about the Eucharist. Is it a sign and symbol like Protestants say that it is, or something more? What did the Early Church believe?

Screen Shot 2019-06-26 at 7.27.27 AMWe unpack Steve’s conversion story to find out how a Bible-believing Baptist of 30 years could ever become a Catholic–and the central role of the Eucharist and the Early Church in his conversion story. For the whole story on an audio CD, click on the image to the right.
