So, I was initially planning to blog – even just a small post – several times a week. However, between the podcast that I co-host, two upcoming funerals, and the preparations for a talk that I’m giving for the Saskatoon Lay Formation program, it’s been rather difficult to write anything for this blog.

I did have the chance to read a great new book, however! I bought Sinner by Lino Rulli on’s Kindle store. (Sadly, the paperback version is not shipping in Canada for a while.)

Lino is the winner of multiple Emmy awards for a television show named Generation Cross that ran in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Since 2006 he has been the host of The Catholic Guy Show on the Sirius/XM Catholic Channel. The show runs Monday-Friday from 2-5pm Saskatchewan time. Lino and the other cast members (Ryan Grant and Fr. Rob “Timmy” Keighron) talk about life, love, and healt… err… I mean, about living their faith in ways that are both informative and, as Lino would say, “wildly entertaining.” Truth is, this show is one of the funniest, laugh-out-loud shows anywhere on radio, and it also inspires people to search deeper in their faith.

Well, Lino has written a book. He writes about how his life as an ordinary, typical sinner (I can relate!) has found grace to grow and to learn at different times in his life. It is quite a funny read. However, note that some of his stories are definitely of a more mature subject matter (he’s writing about his sins and temptations after all), so it’s not necessarily something for the young kidlets. But for the rest of us, it’s a funny and inspiring book that is easily relatable. Check it out!
