I’m going to be late for work because I couldn’t stop watching session 3 on Forgiven. I thought the first episode was amazing but this one takes the cake! It not only touches on the head knowledge of confession but reaches the most important part, heart knowledge - knowing how much God loves us. Whoever was the cinematic genius who thought of the idea of having each priest recite part of the prayer of absolution I want you to know it brought me to tears. This is going to be an invaluable resource not only for our parishioners but also for those going through RCIA. Well done Augustine Institute. Well done!! Lisa Martin, St. Leo’s, Ridgway, PA

Forgiven Study Guide (Spanish)

Pecado, remordimiento, fracaso, decepción . . . todas estas palabras son incómodas, pero al mismo tiempo, son una realidad universal de la experiencia humana. Todos tenemos que enfrentarnos a ellas, pero no podemos hacerlo solos.

El remedio se encuentra disponible de manera inmediata y es milagrosamente efectivo—el Sacramento de la Reconciliación. El sacramento no es una regla, una formalidad, o un ritual anticuado. Es una experiencia íntima y transformadora de la misericordia de Dios.

Perdonado te guía a través de la gracia y sanación, que se ofrece en el Sacramento de la Confesión. Estudiando la revelación de Dios de Su misericordia en las Sagradas Escrituras, y viendo paso a paso el rito del sacramento, Perdonado transmite el mensaje de la invitación de Dios a cada uno de nosotros, para experimentar Su amor indescriptible—sin importar lo que hayamos hecho o por cuánto tiempo hayamos estado lejos de Él.

Presence - Study Guide (Spanish)

¿Alguna vez te has sentido como si Dios estuviera lejos? Toda la historia de la salvación es la historia de Dios, que se hace presente a su pueblo —en el Edén, en el desierto, en el Templo, y finalmente en la Persona de Jesucristo. Pero la historia no se detiene ahí. Él todavía se encuentra entre nosotros—escondido. Bajo la apariencia de pan y vino, Jesucristo está realmente presente en su Cuerpo, Sangre, Alma y Divinidad. En la Eucaristía, el Dios del universo nos invita a una experiencia más profunda de su amor perfecto—y te está esperando.


Presencia explora el misterio radical del amor de Dios, que se hace manifestó en la Eucaristía, y muestra cómo Dios realmente está presente en este sacramento, para ayudarnos y fortalecernos en cada paso que recorramos en nuestra vida. Al explorar la historia del amor de Dios por su pueblo en las Sagradas Escrituras y en las enseñanzas de la Iglesia sobre este sacramento, Presencia nos invita a una comunión más profunda e íntima con Dios. Él está ahí esperándonos—todo lo que necesitamos es recibir su don.

Praise for Presence

“We live in an age that does not orient the heart toward mystery. As a consequence, too many Catholics approach the Holy Eucharist with—let's be honest—indifference. The Augustine Institute has provided a much-needed tonic. Presence is a perfect blend of storytelling to fire the imagination, personal testimony to stir the soul, and theological instruction to inform the intellect. This lively and compelling series on the central reality of the Catholic religion is ideal for catechists, teachers, parents of children preparing for First Communion, and anyone who finds himself longing to love Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament more but not knowing where to begin.”

Could God Love Someone Like Me?

Could God Love Someone Like Me?

Fr. Mike Schmitz, one of the leading presenters in the Church today, speaks powerfully about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He makes clear the truth that Christ deeply loves and wants to encounter each of us as we are, with all our imperfections. Fr. Mike debunks the lies we often believe about not being good enough to approach Jesus, and he draws upon Scripture to explain rationally why we go to priests to encounter God’s mercy and forgiveness in Confession.

 

A great discussion on Mercy and Reconciliation for Catholics of all ages and perhaps those outside of the church to better understand one of the most important sacraments. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It makes you want to go to confession immediately. St. Charles, MO

Spanish - 7 Secretos de la Confesion

Spanish - 7 Secretos de la Confesion

Para muchos Católicos, la confesión es solo un medio para alcanzar un fin: lavarnos del pecado para poder recibir la Comunión. Sin embargo, como nos dice el Papa Francisco, la confesión es mucho más que “ir a la lavandería.” Es “un encuentro con Jesús que nos espera como somos.”

En 7 Secretos de la Confesión, el autor de gran éxito de ventas, Vinny Flynn, explora las verdades “ocultas” de ese encuentro con Cristo, presentando lo que para muchos será un modo nuevo de acercarse a la confesión, e invitándote a iniciar un apasionante camino personal de sanación y santidad.

Si aún no ansias la confesión de la misma manera que ansias la Comunión, lee este libro. Cambiará tu vida.


English Translation:

For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."

Vinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

If you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

This book is also available in English.

Vinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

The understanding that many Catholics have of the Sacrament of Confession is so limited and narrow in its focus that it keeps them from discovering the real beauty and value of this Sacrament... beauty and value that even a young child can understand if it's presented properly.
For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."

In his years of speaking all over North America, Flynn saw that many Catholics have this limited appreciation of Confession, and the urgent need for clear teaching about this great Sacrament. If you have not yet experienced Confession as a wonderful, personal encounter with Christ; if you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

 

There was so much information revealed to my about Confession in this book. It completely changed the way I see confession now. It also showed me a deeper level of the mystery of confession and God's mercy and love for us. It showed me more of how awesome and loving God is! Gia - Sheridan, WY

So Help Me God

So Help Me God

In this dynamic talk Dr. Scott Hahn explains the importance of oaths, which invoke God’s name and implore His assistance. He shows that oaths are also the means of transforming our personal relationship with Christ into a covenant relationship. Dr. Hahn then explains what led him to move from believing in only two Sacraments to all seven. In sharing these insights, he connects oaths to the seven Sacraments and unveils their mystery and importance. He reveals that the Sacraments are the ordinary means by which God empowers us to do His will. You'll discover that the Sacraments don’t make holiness easy, but they do make it possible.

 

I am participating in RCIA program in our church and I am preparing to be baptized this Eater. This CD was a great description about my duties after receiving the first Sacrament and responsibility I have to accept by second and third sacrament.

In Swear to God, Dr. Scott Hahn explores the richness of Christ's sacraments, their doctrine, history, symbols, and rituals. Drawing upon the Bible and the Church's tradition, he shows how God's covenants with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David became the driving forces in history. When Jesus came to fulfill all these covenants, He established a new covenant, with greater power than ever before. Christians are God's children now. Joined to Christ by baptism, we can already share in the eternal life of the Trinity, a life we hope to know fully in heaven. But heaven is with us, even now, in the sacraments.

-Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York 

The most solemn, majestic, and beautiful gifts that Jesus Christ gave to the world are His sacraments. He endowed them with unprecedented and unparalleled power...power to change lives, save souls, and share God's very life. The sacraments are the ordinary means by which God directs the course of each human life and all of world history.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist - Book

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist - Book

"Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus' purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, "This is my body... This is my blood"?

Pages: 228
Book Dimensions: 5.25" x 8"

To answer these questions, Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys-the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence-have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday


Inspiring and informative, "Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist" is a groundbreaking work that is sure to illuminate one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith: the mystery of Jesus' presence in "the breaking of the bread."

Stay With Us Lord

Stay With Us Lord

Fr. David J. Simonetti was ordained in 2005 as a priest for the Archdiocese of Chicago. In an inviting manner, he preaches missions, days of reflection, and retreats with humor and Gospel joy. Fr. Simonetti shares his own account of how the Lord drew him to the priesthood, how he relies upon Christ in the Eucharist, and how Jesus calls each of us to spend time with Him in Adoration.

 

I got a lot out of this talk!! :) I have been thinking about doing an hour at my church of Eucharistic adoration. But it was very easy to make excuses to myself about why I couldn't do it. I am a married, 31 year old mother of 4, one of who is a newborn. But I really want and need to have a closer relationship with God and I need guidance and help for family issues I am having. I also want to read the Bible more and there is no quiet at my house usually. So after being out and about the one night, I stopped at our church on my way home and checked the available times for adoration. My husband and I are going to take a time!

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.



 

As someone trying to learn more about my faith, I enjoyed the clear, simple presentation that I was able to follow easily. I enjoyed it so much I ordered the book. Thank you. Carlos - Austin, TX

How to Get the Most Out of Mass

Dr. Scott Hahn takes us through the awesome grandeur of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, from the entrance song to the dismissal. With great clarity, he takes us through a basic outline of the structure of the Mass, explaining how the Sacred Liturgy transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary and the earthly into the heavenly. A must-have for every Catholic and non-Catholic who wants to know what the Mass is all about.

 

It helped me to understand more what' happening during the Mass, where certain parts come from, why we practice them and how fortunate I am to be Catholic. I'll be better able to explain the Mass to all faiths, like fallen away Catholics. Thank you Scott Hahn. Sybil - Ville Platte, LA

Life-Changing Stories of the Eucharist

Life-Changing Stories of the Eucharist

In this talk, Jesse Romero shares numerous encounters of the stunning power of Christ's presence in the Eucharist in his own life and in the lives of others, and a convincing presentation of history and theology as witnesses to this most incredible mystery and gift! Jesse is a renowned professional Catholic apologist with a Masters in Theology, a retired L.A. Deputy Sheriff, and a former Police Olympic boxing champion and USA kickboxing champion. He speaks on the radio and at conferences around the country with a refreshing, straightforward, pull no punches, high-energy style, and with passion for the Catholic Faith and our Eucharistic Lord.

 

I loved the true stories told by Jesse Romero about the presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist of what he saw and of his own experience OF his mother being healed. I also believe that we need perpetual adoration at every catholic church. Our church has adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Thursdays and there arent many people adoring Jesus. I think many Catholics dont truly understand that it is truly our Lord present. I wish we can get a hold of Jesse Romero so he can come to speak to our spanish-speaking panish community and maybe then people will start to realize that Jesus is waiting to be adored by all of us catholics and that He can heal us. maria - Kansas City, KS

The Fourth Cup

Well-known Catholic theologian Dr. Scott Hahn explains Christ's Paschal Sacrifice on the cross as the fulfillment of the traditional fourth cup used in the celebration of the Jewish Passover meal. He draws a symbolic parallel to the Last Supper and Christ's death on Calvary. Through his scholarly insights and important biblical connections, Mass will come alive for you as never before!

 

The whole thing was great. Having to consume the passover lamb for it to be complete and for death to not enter your home. In the new covenant we have to eat the passover lamb. Christ! Amazing! I have been Catholic my whole life and never heard it put this way Linda - Hastings, MN

A Pastor's Wife's Journey Home

A Pastor's Wife's Journey Home

The daughter of a Protestant minister and wife of Dr. Scott Hahn, Kimberly Hahn candidly shares her difficult journey into the Catholic Faith. She explains how close examination of the Church's teachings on family life and artificial contraception led her to embrace the fullness of the Faith, and why she came to believe that the Roman Catholic Church is the Church founded by Christ.

 

We claim to be ready to follow Jesus completely, but we end up putting worldly obligations ahead of our immediate surrender to Jesus. We should not let anything delay our decision to put Jesus first in our lives. "Delayed obedience is disobedience." When the Lord calls us to follow Him, we must do so immediately and wholeheartedly. Surrender does not come after we take care of the messes in our lives or make sure our families understand our decision. Instead, surrender happens first, and in that surrender, we are able to fully rely on God and His promise that everything else will be taken care of. Maria - Lockney, TX

The Mass Explained

The Mass Explained

Inspiring speaker Fr. Larry Richards presents exciting and powerful insights into the history, spirituality, and biblical foundations of the Liturgy of the Eucharist. He opens the door for us to enter more profoundly into this most perfect prayer and unite our offering with that of the priest. This will change the way you experience this most sacred of all mysteries, the source and summit of our lives.

 

It's one thing to believe God is present in the bread and wine because this is what we are supposed to believe. Father Larry presents the "evidence" of this truth from a biblical account that is a must listen for every catholic. This would be a great listen for non-Catholics who question our belief of his presence. As another reviewer stated, I could not wait to go to mass after listening to this. It has changed my life and deepened my faith tremendously. Has set a fire in me to learn much more about my faith. Terry - Pinch, WV

The Lamb's Supper

The Lamb's Supper

Based on his best-selling book, Dr. Scott Hahn reveals the early Christians' key to understanding the Mass: the Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, mystic visions of Heaven, and end-times prophecies, it mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Holy Eucharist. See the Mass with new eyes, pray the Liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully and enthusiastically!

 

I liked learning about he parallels between the stories of the Old and the New Testaments and How the Mass is based off John's vision of heaven in Revelation. I also liked hearing it from the perspective of a very educated Prostestant minister who converted to Catholicism. Marilyn - Middletown, MD
