Forgiven Study Guide (Spanish)

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)

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.

This comprehensive guide makes it easy for any faithful Catholic to lead an effective study of Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist, whether at home or in the parish.


About Presence

Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life. Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and its members.

It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation. Click here to watch the trailer and learn more.


-------------------------------

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.”
