He shows us how we can join our sufferings with those of Jesus on the cross, bringing renewed meaning to the suffering we experience in our lives.

Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

This product is available for a discount as part of our Christmas promotions! Click here to shop now.

Dr. Mark Miravalle - Professor of Theology and Mariology at Franciscan University of Steubenville - teaches on the fascinating subject of Angels. Why did God create angels? How are they different from humans? Are guardian angels found in Scripture? Discover the answer to these questions and many more as Dr. Mark Miravalle explains the nine choirs of angels, their differing roles and hierarchical order, and how much angels can help us if we only ask.

 

I liked the very concise & detailed explanation of how the angel studies were done by the Church, the history of the angels, all the different types of angels & their duties (good & bad), the hierarchies, tying info to scripture & tradition, the importance of talking/praying to our guardian angel daily, invoking the angels, going to Adoration, etc. Everyone likes angels, but I didn't realize there was so much info, & how to join the good side to fight the fallen angels!

Abba or Allah

Abba or Allah

In this informative talk, Dr. Scott Hahn explores some of the most important beliefs that distinguish Christianity from Islam. He explains that while both religions trace themselves back to Abraham, the differences, including our understanding of God as Father, are not insignificant. With charity, balance, and candor, Dr. Hahn shows us how Islam presents the most formidable challenge to Christianity in the Third millennium.

 

"An amazing explanation of Islam and Christianity!" Cheryl - Vernon, NJ

All Things Are Possible for God

As a young man, the last thing Fr. Joshua Waltz ever thought he would be was a Catholic priest. But a series of choices—some bad and some good—ultimately led him to enter the seminary. In this talk, Fr. Waltz shares an incredible vocation story that involves heartbreak, robbers, Europe, and several miracles—all showing that there is nothing more exciting than a life lived for Jesus Christ.

 

Highly engaging and entertaining! Julie - St. Petersburg, FL

Confession

Confession

Based upon his proven and powerful parish mission presentation, Fr. Larry Richards’ talk on Confession has become the #1 talk in North America dealing with the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He is riveting, honest, humorous, very human, and often touchingly gentle. Fr. Larry provides listeners with hope for a closer, healing relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

I re-evaluated my entire way of living because it made me realize that I was not as close to God as I thought! Brandy - Arlington, VA

Discerning God's Will

Larry Richards, the founder of The Reason for Our Hope foundation, delves into the process of discernment. With personal stories, practical steps, and sound advice, Fr. Larry encourages all of us to dedicate ourselves to living the life that God has planned for us. It is in living this life that we will be truly happy.

This presentation was fantastic! Mike is a great role model for our times! I will give the CD to our youth groups and catechism students. Chirstopher - E. Harfortd, CT
Mike's story is an uplifting example of how each one of us can find peace when our focus is on God's will for our lives. Chris - New Port Richey, FL
It is of interest to my young adult sons who are not very motivated to hearing these talks, even though they are faithful Catholics. clarksville, MD
the players talk about their struggles and what they used to push back on temptation. matthew - falls church, VA
I liked that this was a real guy, with a real career (didn't boast of being a pro athlete, but endeared himself to the listener because he seem so much like us) - a cradle catholic who learned to enliven his faith by educating himself further and then living it, and sharing it with his family. It was so easy to listen to. He brought life experiences with his children into the mix. Very good. Sue - Grand Rapids, MN
The way that Mike Sweeney was open about his weaknesses, and gave them to Lord to heal him & others. Thomas - Syracuse, NY
I enjoyed his easy going nature and the connections he makes between his personal experiences and Jesus. I admire his desire to be a good Catholic role model. Vancouver, BC
It was very enlightening to hear how even "big stars" struggle with their faith at times. It was great to hear Mike Sweeney's story. I plan on having my 3 boys listen and hope they can take 1 thing away from what he had to say. Eileen - Philadelphia, PA
I really like sports and I was able to really relate with the speaker. Amanda - Ravenna, OH
I enjoyed listening to this with my middle school age son. It was very inspiring and he immediately asked if I had anymore CDs to listen to. Fortunately, I had some more lighthouse talks downloaded! What a great way to engage our youth! He loved this talk because he could relate to the sports figure. He really listened and then talked more deeply about purity once the talk was over. Thank you lighthouse for your resources! Jenell - Hines, OR
