Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

Angels Explained: What You Should Know About the Nine Choirs

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!

Finally! Someone has explained Redemptive Suffering in a way that is easily understandable. YES! Norm-Biloxi, MS

Fr. Michael Gaitley is a priest in the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception and the director of formation for the Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy.

 

The CD was very informative. Fr. Gaitley was very interesting, and I loved the presentation. It made me reflect about my love for Mary and for our beloved Pope John Paul. This is a CD that I will share. Barbara - Dearborn Heights, MI

Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues

Seven Deadly Sins - Seven Lively Virtues

Join noted Professor of Theology and author, Fr. Robert Barron, in this revealing presentation as he sheds light on the Seven Deadly Sins - those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our relationship with God and others - and the antidote to them, the Seven Lively Virtues! Fr. Barron uses Dante's DIVINE COMEDY to expose these sinful patterns in our lives and show how they are effectively counteracted by the cultivation of virtue through the development of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This fascinating journey shows the path that God has designed to lead us to health, happiness and holiness.

 

Absolutely wonderful! I love how Fr. Barron gives practical ways to use the information he’s presenting. Nancy - Warroad, MN

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.

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.

Really good stuff - definitely going to have to listen more than once. The guy was inspirational, fluid. Good tips... Great stuff! Dominic, IL
Such a great tool!!! This one is at the top of my list of favorites! Deb - Coopersville, MI
I love how Matthew Leonard was able to clearly articulate the challenges and the joys of growth in one's prayer life, using the language of the saints in a way that speaks to modern listeners. If every member of my parish were to listen to this talk and implement its lessons, surely we would have a "prayer revolution"! Daniel - Batavia, NY
Just totally loved it! One of my favorites. Gave me some new ideas with praying. Amsterdam, NY
I've long looked for information on praying and styles of prayer. This gave me good information and leads to books which may help me develop a prayer life. I would recommend it to others. Pat - Girard, PA
It was a good guide to how to pray in a more fulfilling way. The bonus by Fr. Burke Masters was also very inspirational--a bit too involved in his life story early on, but I guess necessary to the final message of giving your life up to God's plan. Judy - Modesto, CA
It helped me remember to spend time daily with God and to know that he wants to hear from us. I also enjoyed the bonus section by Fr. Burke Masters. It really made you look at how ANY person can feel the call of God to represent him in our world. Very smart, athletic, successful and in love... then he listened to the call to become a priest. I felt like I could really relate to him as someone I played ball with. Way to Go Father Masters! Chris - Mount Sinai, NY
I enjoyed the description of the three types of prayer. His reference to some of the Catholic prayers is a comfort when our words fail us. His humor and personal experiences made this a real treat to listen to more than once. Carol - Fredonia, WI
Most interesting - I took notes and enjoyed Father's sense of humor. He understood the problems of meditation and concentration. I never realized contemplation was a gift from God. I appreciated his explanation of following God's will, "He will lead us". The Homily 'God is Love' was outstanding. Thank you! Carolyn - Novato, CA
It was a very clear and straightforward talk on prayer. NY
JMJ. The Year of Evangelization plays a big part in this response. I have felt the Holy Spirit urging me every step of the way. Following my husband's death in 2007, I prayed for direction and in 2009, God connected me with a seminarian at Mundelein from Africa, and many others since then. Now young men discerning and seminarians are two of my primary efforts. What a gift God gave to me! I enjoyed the talks immensely. They are helping me with my prayer life, relationships, etc. To me, the talk by Fr. Masters is probably the greatest love story I have ever heard. I recently ordered 100 of them to give to others. May peace be with you and yours! Marie - KS
I learned the different ways in which we can pray. What to meditate on. To meditate to avoid mortal sin. That we are not alone, wanting to be in Gods grace and to serve him. The joy of serving God. Diane - Philadelphia, PA
I liked hearing that we are made to pray. We are made to communion with God and prayer is one way to do so. Adele - Kamloops, BC
It was down to earth. I am a returning Catholic and enjoyed it very much. I loved his sense of humor, too. Deborah - Little Elm, TX
Most inspirational talk about prayers. It has enriched my prayer life and taught me how to pray! Xenia - Tampa, FL
I really enjoyed personal testimony of the speaker. ronnie - owensboro, KY
very inspirational and easy to understand Vince - Chino, CA
it helped me to see and understand @ what stage I am in prayer.and some saints went thru what I am also. I AM ON THE RIGHT PATH. karen - douglasville, GA
About life and I love it all the topic. Merlita - Toronto, ON
The presentation on prayer was very complete and very practical. The presentation by the priest was very interesting. I wish we knew more stories of Priests and their call to the priesthood. We recently had a Priest who had been engaged when he accepted the call. I thought that must be exceedingly rare. Now it seems it may happen more often than many of us realize. I was truly inspired by someone's willingness to set aside their own life plans and so lovingly embrace the call from God. It causes me to have even deeper respect and awe for the priesthood. Marlene - MI
from beginning to end, this talk was so enlightening and refreshing! As I was praying and meditating on it, i was feeling constantly encouraged to deepen my personal prayer! Heaven is such a glorious place, and I someday want to make it! :) brooke - Ottawa
