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!

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI considered Moral Relativism to be the most dangerous dictatorship existing in the world today. in this presentation, Chris Stefanick debunks the powerful and epidemic myth of relativism with honesty, relevance, humor, and logical validity, offering a much-needed perspective on the current status quo of morality.
This is always an uncomfortable topic to discuss with friends and family, and it is certainly the underpinning issue with almost all moral evils of our day! Chris gave me concrete and charitable ways to challenge this mode of thinking. Elliot - IL
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
"An amazing explanation of Islam and Christianity!" Cheryl - Vernon, NJ
How can we evangelize an unbelieving world? In this talk, Ken Hensley uses simple, effective logic to show how the atheistic worldview inevitably leads to contradictions that can’t hold up to sound reasoning. After hearing this talk, you will be empowered to conclusively demonstrate how unbelief leads to the destruction of morality, meaning, and even knowledge.
"Teaches us that everybody is created to love. God is Love and we often deny our true calling. We are in denial. We don't know that the true faith is the Catholic Faith." Mirko, ON CA
In this informative and dynamic presentation, Dr. Scott Hahn discusses why the New Evangelization is the greatest priority of the Church at this time, and how we are all called to share our faith. He shows how the Eucharist relates to explaining Jesus' death and resurrection, and how Blessed John Paul II's called for a New Evangelization must be based on the Eucharist.
"The best information that I have heard on the New Evangelization and what it means to us!" Charlie - Hunt Valley, MD
There’s ultimately only one reason to be Catholic: because it’s true. In this outstanding presentation, Jason Evert shows us the beauty and the treasures of the Faith, as revealed through the Saints and Sacraments.
Jason has spoken about the Catholic Faith to more than one million people around the world and is the author of more than a dozen books, including Saint John Paul the Great, Pure Faith and If You Really Loved Me.
This is a powerful presentation that not only reminds us why we are catholic, but it also provides ways we can explain it to others who may ask us why! Mary - Lindstrom, MN
"Fr. Spitzer gives us proofs not only of the existence of God, but of a divinely designed universe." Aaron - Palm Bay, FL
"Fr. Spitzer explains very difficult scientific data in understandable terms." Julie - Sterling, VA
It showed me that the big bang is plausible and that if it were absolutely proven it would only further prove God's existence! It only males the proof that He exists even stronger! Carol - Friendswood, TX
A very worthy topic, and I had hoped to find something to use in discussions with unbelievers. Karen - Saint Charles, MO
Being Christian, I never investigated the Big Bang Theory or understood completely what the "beginning of the universe" truly meant scientifically. All I knew was God created the Heavens and the Earth. It was very intriguing learning the Theory and that it was only discovered in the early 1900s. The Bible already proved there was an absolute beginning, yet scientists needed more proof then the Bible...interesting. Sondra - Algonac, MI
Fr. Spitzer's slow building of the argument from science was great up to the point where the the dark matter, etc. came in. I've heard him before on EWTN Live and think there may be some way to make that transition a little clearer - at least for me. I think it will be a great introduction to high school students who are wobbly in their faith. I am combining it with Fr. Barron's "Reaching Out to Today's Culture" and Peter Kreeft's "Seven Reasons to Be Catholic" for some teens I know - in this order: Fr. Barron, Fr. Spitzer and Dr. Kreeft. Martha - Alpine, TX
Offers logical and insight into the interplay between the leading scientific theories of our universe and how they beg the question of intelligent creation. Fantastic lecture! K - Massillon , OH
