You may wonder who these people are in the photo. I can identify the center smiling figure as Servant of God Marcel Van, the little brother of St. Therese and our brother too. But who is the handsome man on the right? Who the sweet girl on the left? I'm thinking they must be Michael Lichens of Catholic Exchange, and Miss Marcel herself. If you're wondering what they're talking about, I've got good news. Thanks to recent advances in modern technology, I can link you to a recording of their conversation where you can hear every word (except when Miss Marcel is giggling because Marcel is so funny - then her words are a little obscured by the laughter, but they mostly come through).
Are you wondering how I can pull this off? Well, full disclosure: I'm not linking you to an archival recording from the time this photo was taken in the 1940's . . . We're very up-to-the-minute, 21st century here at Miss Marcel's Musings, and so I'm about to link you to an interview Michael Lichens did with me not long ago, an interview in which we talk about Marcel for a whole hour! Not long enough, I know, but it was, nonetheless, one of those conversations my friend Jackie used to say is such a great grace. And, thanks be to God and Michael L., this conversation full of grace and truth appeared as a podcast the other day at Catholic Exchange.
Are you ready to eavesdrop? Just below this paragraph you'll find the magic link that transforms you into a fly on the wall so you can listen in. No worries - nothing Kafka-esque about this transformation. As I said, we're very 21st century here, so the experience will be more like Antman, only you won't need a special suit to access your fly-on-the-wall super powers, Simply click your heels three times and say - oh wait, wrong transport. Unless you're wearing ruby red slippers, you'll want to click on the bold words below, that's it, and you'll then find yourself (instantly!) at Catholic Exchange, where you can click again to enter the Wonderful World of Marcel. (Sorry for the two-click system, but think of it as instant gratification with a nano-second time lapse. You'll be there soon enough, and we won't start without you, I promise.) Are you ready? Here's our magic portal:
Fabulous Fun with Marcel in a Podcast!
I don't want to keep you here a moment longer than need be - Marcel is incredibly excited to have you hear our audible musings over at CE! So let's conclude with our quick prayer and then - no seat belt necessary - live dangerously by clicking the bold words above. (The bold words below can work miracles too, but you only need to say them; no clicking required.)
Draw me, we will run!
Now make sure the volume's turned up and go, fly, be free - and have fun with Marcel in a podcast!
