The Shadow of His Wings

Matthew Arnold

Fr. Goldmann was drafted into Hitler's army while he was still a seminarian, and later assigned to the dreaded S.S. Throughout World War II he remained faithful to his Catholic convictions, proclaiming the faith to his Nazi countrymen.  From his wartime ordination to his construction of a prison chapel, this thrilling true-life adventure is an inspirational testimony to God's providence and the power of prayer.

I'm Not Being Fed

I'm Not Being Fed

Jeff Cavins explores and responds to some of the reasons why so many people have left the Catholic Church for evangelical Christianity. As he presents the story of his return to Catholicism, Cavins also builds a case for why the Catholic Church is the Church founded by Christ.

 

A remarkable teaching. I will share this with many people… so full of answers! Lydia – Windham, NH

Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues

Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues

Join noted Professor of Theology and author, Fr. Robert Barron, in this revealing presentation as he sheds light on the Seven Deadly Sins - those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our relationship with God and others - and the antidote to them, the Seven Lively Virtues! Fr. Barron uses Dante's DIVINE COMEDY to expose these sinful patterns in our lives and show how they are effectively counteracted by the cultivation of virtue through the development of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This fascinating journey shows the path that God has designed to lead us to health, happiness and holiness.

 

Absolutely wonderful! I love how Fr. Barron gives practical ways to use the information he’s presenting. Nancy - Warroad, MN

Why Be Catholic?

Why Be Catholic?

For those who aren't Catholic, it may not be apparent why one should embrace the Catholic Faith. In this inspiring presentation, bestselling author Patrick Madrid gives compelling biblical and historical reasons for why he embraces the faith as a lifelong Catholic. He shares valuable insights into the beauty of the Catholic Church and its claim to contain the fullness of the deposit of faith given by Christ.

 

This CD was awesome - I'll be listening again and again! It gave logical, biblical reasons to be and stay Catholic. Peggy - Finksburg, MD

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist. By taking us back to the Jewish roots of our faith, Dr. Pitre gives us a powerful lens through which to see anew the bread of the presence, the manna, the Last Supper, and ultimately the meaning of the Eucharist.

 

Amazing teaching on the Eucharist!! Such fullness; so rich in history... The more I learn, the more I love our Faith! Lydia - Windham, NH

Our Lives Change When Our Habits Change

Our Lives Change When Our Habits Change

Matthew Kelly has inspired millions with the message that there is genius in Catholicism, but if the Church is to avoid falling into obscurity, individual Catholics must demonstrate its relevance through a dedication to becoming the best version of themselves.  Matthew gives practical guidance in two dynamic talks on ways that we can change our habits to change our lives... and awaken the sleeping giant that is the Church. 

 

Matthew again shares his heart with great words of wisdom, challenging us to be the best we can with what we have and who we are! Julie - Sterling, VA

Fantastic!! This is absolutely the one CD everyone should start with ... it is persuasive, informative, and highly valuable in educating Catholics and non-Catholics about Catholicism! I will order many and give them to family and friends. Susan - Land O Lakes, FL

Prove it, God ... and He did!

Prove it, God ... and He did!

As a lifelong Catholic, wife, and mother of three, Patty Schneier struggled with the Church's teaching on contraception – as many men and women do today. Her discovery of Pope John Paul II's "Theology of the Body" revealed to her the fullness of God's plan for sex and marriage, and led to a dramatic renewal of her marriage and her faith. Patty now speaks around the country about the challenges she faced on her amazing journey.

 

I LOVE this testimony! This is my story, and the story of so many of us trying to follow ALL the teachings of the Church Rachel - Thibodaux, LA

I could not stop listening to this CD! This amazing journey with Father Goldmann strengthened my faith in the power of prayer. Claire - Bridgton, ME
WOW! The story of Father Goldmann is truly riveting, and a great testimony of deep faith in God. Pat - Burlington, ON
I love listening to this story and have loaned it to another person, who I felt needed a pick-up in his faith. Peter - Larne
It gave true witness to the power of prayer. It was also interesting, because it was a true story and had historical value. It was an engaging story that my whole family enjoyed listening to. In fact, I think the fact that it was history, not just faith, made it more interesting for the men/boys in the car. It was a great story. Janet - Ridgefield, CT
This is by far the very best CD I have received from Lighthouse. I had never heard of Fr Gereon, but now I pray to ask for his intercession because I am convinced he is a saint. What a great example of courage and humility and boldness and witness in the very belly of the beast! Forget James Bond or Indiana Jones, the boys and men of the parish want to be Fr. Gereon. I only wish that I had a fraction of the virtue that this man does, a true Catholic soldier who did not waver or crumble at adversity, but faced it like the truly holy man he is. Our Church could convert the world if we had generals like Father. This CD also taught me the power of faith, and especially how to distrust myself and put full confidence in God, and how to pray more often and more humbly. I loved this story so much I went and bought the book to get more details! Michael - Warren, MA
I have been studying the Third Reich in depth for several months now, but this subject was from a very different angle. The amazing faith of everyone, from Fr. Goldmann to the "little sisters" was inspiring. God's Providence shines through it all. Thank you for making this CD possible. Linda - Omaha, NE
The story was completely engrossing and inspiring. We have purchased many copies of the CD from our parish bookstore and have given it to friends, Catholics and non-Catholics alike. All agree the testimony to be compelling. It's like listening to a modern Apostle Paul. Joy - Mt. Dora, FL
Very stirring and spellbinding. Gary - Fargo, ND
I had read the entire book previously, and the CD did an excellent job of condensing the material, and was read very well. The power of prayer is the message that was effectively delivered in the CD. It has renewed my desire to prayer for others. Lynne - Bakersfield, CA
Very inspiring following Fr. Goldmann's life. It was wonderful to hear how God opened every door for Fr. G to become a priest under the most trying circumstances. God surely watched over him and as the war progressed, he lived his life in the will of God. Over 30 years ago, I read the "Cost of Discipleship" a story about the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It was a very moving book that I have never forgotten. I look forward to purchasing this book to read more of the life of Fr. Goldmann. John - St. Petersburg, FL
I was so taken with the story of Fr. Goldmann, not only from the spiritual perspective, but for the historical content. It was very inspiring to hear how powerful prayers can be, and it gives you hope that, if the situation arises, I would have the faith and courage needed to sustain. Stephen - Seaford, NY
This was so inspiring, I shared it with a youth in our parish who is obviously a candidate for the priesthood. I also read the book. The CD is completely faithful to the book. Rebecca - LaGrange, KY
Outstanding!!!! How a man kept and protected his faith, his life, and the lives of others through hellish times. Cincinnati, OH
The historical value and accuracy of "the Shadow of His Wings" by Matthew Arnold is a wonderful Blessing. The story of Fr. Gereon Goldman benefited me as an addition to my knowledge of Hitler's Germany and the benefits of the Priestly presence of Fr. Goldman. Ron - Westerville, OH
I enjoyed listening to Father Goldmann's incredible experience and faith increased by the prayer of the nun. It helped me believe even more that prayer is powerful. Mariana - APO, AE
The story of Father Goldman is miraculous, the faith of those around me, his faith during such a difficult time. A German catholic in Hitler's army, trully restored my faith that there were so many good men there, eventhough you get one picture of the nazi horrors from history. This is a personal account that is more humane. Deb - Hummelstown, PA
