269- Our Lady of Victory & Father Baker

“She Did It All” Venerable Nelson Baker would say in regards to “Our Lady of Victory” whenever something had been achieved for the needy. “Father Baker” as he preferred to be called, is now in the process of consideration for Sainthood.

Constant Procession tells of key apparitions of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world and how she serves humanity through Christianity.

The origin of these podcasts began with my book The Constant Procession.

(An e-book copy of the book can be found here on the website.)

Constant Procession (the podcast) is published here every Tuesday morning.

I’ve read the entire book from cover to cover (Installments 201-217)

To listen from Installment 201
