Unconditional love is easier to step toward and even achieve in your relationships, whether that’s with your life partner, your kids, your family or even your friends, when you consider how your past is forging your present reality.
I had never realized how the past, that of my mother, who I now love dearly, and then my own past had moved from the abusive relationship of my childhood and into my marriage. My relationships were adversely affected by the hand-me-downs I had allowed myself to inherit and then pass on.
My saving grace and the start of my path toward real love, that pure love which comes from a heart that has actually been freed to love, began with a major argument and a statement that changed my life. The cycle of the past was about to break.
Today’s podcast is the story of my mother, a desire to murder, and how that connects to my story and maybe yours.

Chris Juchacz is “training” to become a priest in the Roman Catholic Church. In this interview I did with him, mostly about his life and how to hear God, Chris reveals some Catholic answers to questions many ask about the Catholic Church, the Catholic hierarchy and its purpose, Catholic beliefs, the Catholic mass and much more.
Chris’ life journey will inspire you. It took him from questioning the actual existence of God to a calling he just couldn’t resist. He has a heart for people and for sharing the love of God with everyone.
