    Hi, Fr. Seraphim,

    I’m still playing catch-up, and it was a pleasant surprise to hear that you had received my email that I sent way back in January. I’m glad the numbering issue was resolved. I just listened to these two episodes on Fr. Goldmann, and I found his story so very moving. Thanks so much for all the work and research that go into every episode! One of these days, I’ll catch up to your latest episode. 🙂

    Hi, Fr. Seraphim, I’ll admit I’m still catching up with old episodes of CUtH, and I was pleasantly surprised to hear your response to my email I had sent back in January concerning some apparent missing episodes. I’m glad all of that is sorted out. Thanks for all your work with this podcast; it is one of my favourites, and it’s really nice to learn something new about the rich history of the church.
