Today we’re excited to have Tyler Blanski with us discussing the sacred and sacramental. Tyler is a writer and author of two books, a husband and father, as well as a youth minister who recently converted to the Catholic Church from Anglicanism.
We chat about his conversion, his family, the importance of a sacramental attitude towards everyday living, the themes of holiness and death in Kristin Lavransdatter, as well as the sacred role of mothers and family. We cover a lot of ground in this thought-provoking conversation.
Tyler’s books are entitled Mud and Poetry: Love, Sex, and the Sacred and When Donkeys Talk: A Quest to Rediscover the Mystery and Wonder of Christianity.
Things we talked about today:
Tyler’s recent articles on Kristen Lavransdatter: Death in Kristen Lavransdatter and Kristen Lavransdatter and Your Nordic Medieval Catholic Heart.
Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism by Scott and Kimberley Hahn.
Everyday Sacrament: The Messy Grace of Parenting by Laura Kelly Fanucci.
