In this episode of the Parousia Podcast we have Deacon Roderick Pirotta sharing his faith journey. Born and raised in a Catholic family of Malta he moved to Australia and worked in the medical field as a nurse. When he got married and wanted to start a family with his wife, they found out it was not possible to have children. Accepting this as the will of God he then felt called to serve in a more formal way for the Church as a deacon. He has answered that calling and is now working full time as a deacon in the Diocese of Parramatta, Sydney Australia.
