Discover the relevant truth of Scripture and the Tradition of the
Catholic Church with LECTIO, a brand new video-based study
series from the trusted presenters at the Augustine Institute.

Prayer

Finding Intimacy with God

Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we're talking to ourselves. Or, worse, we feel like we're talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive?

Now, with the clear teaching and artistry of the Augustine Institute's LECTIO series, Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the ancient Church's tradition of lectio divina to show you the simple steps to make prayer an effective effort of love and intimacy. Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God captures in six episodes the secret to opening our hearts and minds to Scripture as the means to hear God and respond in conversation, basking in his presence and resolving to live in and through his love.

EUCHARIST

Discovering the Mass in the Bible

In the second release of the LECTIO series, renowned teacher Dr. Brant Pitre guides us through Scripture, history, and Church teaching to illuminate the wonder and miracle of the Eucharist.

Jesus said, “This is my Body” and “This is my Blood.” Some say they’re merely symbols of remembrance. Others say they’re really the Body and Blood of Christ, but can’t explain how that’s possible. The Eucharist is the center-point of the Mass – but why?

The answers are here. With deep insight, Dr. Pitre gives a fresh perspective for understanding the mystery that is the Eucharist.

Towards the end of his life, under arrest and awaiting trial in Rome, Saint Paul writes a short but powerful letter to the Philippians. Paul’s affection for the Christian community at Philippi is apparent from his opening words.
