Welcome to our Catholic podcast and blog
Living the Gospel is messy; let’s talk about it.
Here at Messy Jesus Business, a Catholic podcast and blog, we’re exploring the mess of radical discipleship and Gospel living. We experience Christian discipleship as a life of struggle as we advocate for social justice, live simply, serve others, practice contemplation and live in community.
Our ecumenical approach welcomes people of Christian faith traditions to be inspired, seek wholeness and reflect upon what it means to practice radical Gospel living.
Messy Jesus Business is founded and hosted by Sister Julia Walsh, a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration.
Our community of followers and contributors have walked with us on the journey of radical discipleship for more than a decade now through our Catholic podcast and blog.
