Ave Explores is an initiative created to help people explore aspects of the Catholic faith from a variety of different angles, helping them take a look at topics that are relevant to their daily spiritual life in a fresh, engaging, and practical way. Hosted by Katie Prejean McGrady, Ave Explores aims to nourish the faith of everyday Catholics in ways that make a difference to everyday life.
A pear-sized brain tumor helped director, producer, and comedy writer Jeannie Gaffigan draw closer to the Blessed Mother. In this first Ave Explores podcast, Gaffigan, wife of comedian Jim Gaffigan, talks about praying the Rosary alone and with her family and how her illness helped her grow in her faith. Gaffigan’s book, When Life Gives You Pears, was released in 2019.
