Desires of the Heart: Receiving the Gifts of the Father

Sister Bethany Madonna, vocations director for the Sisters of Life, shares how God not only wants us to know him, but also to give us the desires of our heart and gifts that bring purpose, meaning, and hope. She makes it clear that “receiving is the gift that we give” to the Lord and that he wants to be invited into every aspect of our lives. Speaking from her own life experience, Sister Bethany shows the importance of asking in order to receive all the Lord has in mind for us.

 

I was really impacted by how accessible the Lord makes himself to us, if only we will ask. Tim - Fort Meade, MD

Yet, in the midst of these trials, God was preparing Patrick to evangelize a nation.

Praise for The Trials of Saint Patrick

“The Trials of St. Patrick brings to life the heroic and holy witness of Ireland’s most beloved saint. I highly recommend this captivating audio series as an inspiration for all listeners!”
– Most Rev. Samuel J. Aquila, Archbishop, Archdiocese of Denver

“For those who are hungry to learn more about the amazing life of St. Patrick of Ireland and how God’s powerful grace worked through him to convert the obstinate pagans of his time, The Trials of St. Patrick will be sure to please and edify you. This dramatic portrayal shines a new light onto the life of a beloved saint, a life that has lingered in the shadows of mystery and legend for too long.”
– Rev. Francis J. Hoffman, Executive Director of Relevant Radio

“Dramatic, compelling, and sweeping, The Trials of Saint Patrick captures the power of the life and legacy of a saint whose real story is greatly beloved, but little known. With tremendous production values and talented voicing, this dramatization draws the listener into the life of a man who—though far from perfect—overcame adversity to find a true relationship with God and then gave the rest of his life to gift others with that same assurance of God’s unconditional love. Whether you’re a St. Patrick follower or simply someone in search of your own personal path to the divine, treat yourself to an exquisite adventure into the life of a saint whose legacy is even more relevant in today's world.”
– Lisa M. Hendey, author of The Secret of the Shamrock and founder of CatholicMom.com

“The Trials of Saint Patrick is radio theatre at its very best, taking us on a voyage into the Gaelic mists of the mystic west into the presence of one of the most enigmatic of all saints.”
– Joseph Pearce, Director of the Center for Faith and Culture, Aquinas College

 

This audio drama is outstanding! The acting is exceptional. We especially enjoyed the music, which added so much to the “feel” of the story. My wife and I listened to the program as we drove to work. Fortunately, the segments are perfectly timed for our ride—about 20–25 minutes. My wife took the pack to work with her to show a Catholic co-worker. A non-Catholic co-worker saw the package, and expressed interest. So now she has the discs and is enjoying them. St. Patrick’s evangelizing continues! Greg - Gainesville, FL

Waiting for Christ

Waiting for Christ

THIS ITEM IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT.


VIEW A SAMPLE

Blessed John Henry Newman was one of the most beloved and well-known preachers of his time. Originally an Anglican priest, Newman converted to Catholicism and became a Catholic priest and cardinal. Known for his beautiful prose and exultant preaching, Newman has long been a source of inspiration for those in the Church. In this new and compact compilation of his sermons, you’re invited to journey with Bl. John Henry Newman through Advent into Christmas and Epiphany, meditating on the coming of Christ and the Christian life. Newman’s masterful knowledge of the lives of the saints, Catholic doctrine, and, above all, Sacred Scripture, will help you immerse yourself in these liturgical seasons of waiting, wondering, and joy.


These beautiful meditations guide you through reflections on:
• Preparing for the Lord’s coming at Christmas and the end of time
• Our dependence upon the Lord’s goodness
• What happens when we do not seek truth
• Mary’s role in salvation history
• God’s call for each and every one of us to holiness
• Glorifying God in the world
• True joy
• Martyrdom, affliction, and consolation
• Love as the one thing needful


Waiting for Christ provides an opportunity to spend a few minutes with Bl. John Henry Newman and Christ every day of the Advent and Christmas seasons, preparing for the coming of the Lord.


Praise for Waiting for Christ

“Daily meditation and prayer, much as one spends time with a friend, is an essential practice for any person who desires to have Jesus as an intimate companion. This wonderful selection of Newman’s meditations enables us to draw close to Christ as we await his Nativity each year, that he may recognize us when he returns in glory.”

– Sebastian White, OP, Editor-in-Chief, Magnificat (USA)

“Newman was a prolific and accomplished writer in many and varied genres, but I have always believed that his voice can best be heard through his sermons. Christopher Blum has captured that sweet voice by giving us a rich selection of Newman’s very best sermons for Advent and Christmas to accompany us through these graced seasons.”

– The Most Reverend James D. Conley, STL, Bishop of Lincoln

“These passages are superbly selected, showing that Newman’s is not simply a voice from the past, but one that speaks to the needs of faith in our day. And the peculiar quality of Newman’s voice is how easily he slips into the background to leave us thinking only of Christ, so that the heart of Christ speaks to our hearts through Newman’s words. This book invites us to spend a few minutes each day with a man of eloquence and holiness—and to be left, not with an impression of Newman, but with a longing for Christ that makes us more ready to welcome him, both in the great feast of Christmas and in the ordinary details of each day.”

– Edward Hogan, Ph.D., Academic Dean, Kenrick-Glennon Seminary


About the Author

Blessed John Henry Newman was born in England in 1801. He spent his early adult life as an Anglican priest and academic. Involved in what was known as the Oxford Movement, a movement within Anglicanism that supported the return to some Catholic beliefs and liturgical reform, he later left the Church of England. He converted to Catholicism, was ordained a Catholic priest, and years later was made a cardinal. Newman was widely known as a powerful preacher before and after his conversion to Catholicism, and was an extremely prolific author, writing sermons, essays, poetry, hymns, and an autobiography. He died in 1890 and was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010.
