Made for Love is a new podcast that aims to convey the truth about marriage and families by helping Catholics tell stories of God's work in their lives.
Hosted by Sara Perla, a program specialist for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Made for Love is under the aegis of Marriage: Unique for a Reason, an initiative of the bishops' conference.
While the podcast is focused on people "living out the call to love," it is not afraid to explore the less-rosy forms of "love" in the world. During the show, Perla speaks with guests about each episode's theme, while also narrating a framework of what the episode is about.
In the series' first three episodes, Perla discusses the relatively unique phenomenon of a priest who is able to baptize his own parents; a woman who had to care for her terminally ill spouse during the majority of their marriage; and a woman who sought a declaration of nullity for her marriage.
