Love Conquers All: Faith, Family, and the Early Church

Mike Aquilina

Mike Aquilina, author of over forty books and an expert on early Church history, shares how the faithful witness of Christian families amidst the trials and persecutions of the Church in the first centuries of its existence led to the rapid expansion of Christianity and the conversion of the Roman Empire. Mike relates how fidelity to prayer, faithful attendance of Sunday Mass, and love of neighbor offered a powerful witness to a culture that, in many respects, is similar to our own.

It was nice to hear how the pagans lived. It gives me how for today and nothing is impossible for God to change. Edna - Ottawa, ON
This has been moved into my top 5 favorite Lighthouse Cd's! I never knew how the early Christians lived, how much suffering they endured and how much God influenced the pagans through their lives of simple love and devotion. If you like learning about Church history and the Domestic church...this CD is perfect. All families should listen to this one! Paul - Glencoe, ON
I have heard many talks from you. This one was very educational. I learned so much listening to Mr. Aguilina. I also liked that questions were asked at the end of his talk, and he was able to respond. Those questions were ones that I had, but I would have been unable to ask because I was not there when he spoke. Elizabeth - Westminster, CA
Very beneficial in furthering my understanding of the early church. Robert - Centennial, CO
