John R Boyle
Masters of Theology
I am a cradle Catholic who attended Catholic school as well as various conferences and retreats. After college and entering the "real world". I discerned that God was calling me to a different path in life. I quit may job and entered the seminary to study to be a priest. For three years I studied topics of Scripture, Church History, Liturgy, Systematic Theology and Morality. I eventually discerned with God and the Holy Spirit that I was not called to be a priest but to live out my faith in the world.
For my years of study I was able to earn a Master's Degree in Theology. I eventually got married to my wonderful wife and we have two beautiful children. I have used my theological knowledge to teach RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults), RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children) as well as various classes and ministries in my local parish. I hope to use the Udemy platform to create a number of course related to theology.
Very knowledgeable and insightful. I heavily enjoyed this.
This is good introductory or review material.
I love to learned different way of praying and this is so simple anyone can do it thank you for your time, we need to pray for the world today
I went this course out of curiosity and to learn, not so much as to strengthen my prayer skills (sorry man I’m agnostic/Buddhist). It was some interesting content that the Catholic prayer is kind of similar to Buddhist meditation. I do have one thing: I’m not sure when you recorded this but may I suggest in investing in a new or better mic if this was done recently? Your voice was constantly popping through the lessons.
