TAPtalk 1: How to be a Catholic Influencer by Catherine Szeltner

From commercials to conversations, we all have the ability to influence others. And in a unique way, Catholics can become walking billboards for the Church. Acknowledging this opens up the door for evangelization opportunities and should call the faithful to live out authentically Christian lives.

Catherine Szeltner is a Reporter/Producer for “EWTN News Nightly”, an international evening news program from a Catholic perspective. As a founding news team member, she’s assisted with St. John XXIII and St. John Paul II canonization coverage in Rome, and reported on topics ranging from Supreme Court hearings to pro-life issues in D.C. She graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Advertising and previously worked at The Zimmerman Agency, where she assisted coordinating digital content for national brands, such as Pilot Pen, Club Med, and Nature’s Own.

TAPtalk 2: Making Mistakes Well in Prayer by Leah Libresco

How do you find your way through a new and challenging prayer practice or an old one that’s gone stale? Learn a few habits and strategies for beginning prayers badly in order to learn how to engage in them well in the future. As a convert, Leah took her cue from St. Peter, whose frequent struggles with Christ’s commands and teachings offer a model in how to be a heartfelt follower of Christ, even when we’re plagued with uncertainty.

Leah Libresco grew up as an atheist, picked fights with the most interesting wrong people she knew, and wound up being recieved into the Catholic Church. She writes about faith and ethics for Patheos at unequally-yoked.com and on statistics for FiveThirtyEight. Her first book, Arriving at Amen: Seven Catholic Prayers That Even I Can Offer came out this year.
