In 1978, Pope John Paul II became one of the youngest popes ever elected. At the time of his death in 2005, he was also one of the longest serving popes, having lived into his early 80s. From his own experience of growing old, and only five and a half years before his death, John Paul wrote and shared this moving letter, addressed “To my elderly brothers and sisters.” His letter shares and cherishes the experiences, beauty, agony, and dignity of growing old and drawing closer to God. “The years pass quickly,” he writes, “and the gift of life, for all the effort and pain it involves, is too beautiful and precious for us to ever grow tired of it.”
En esta plática, Marcela López presenta el tema del Genio Femenino como lo describe el Santo Papa San Juan Pablo II y al mismo tiempo lo hace de una manera muy ligera y amena. Es una plática para todas las mujeres de cualquier edad invitándonos a reflexionar en nuestro invaluable valor como hijas de Dios.
Marcela, actualmente lleva un ministerio con mujeres jóvenes difundiendo este mensaje y ayudándoles a vivir en mayor plenitud el amor de Dios.
English Translation: Feminine Genius: Your Divine Gift

In this handy little guide, best-selling author Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, teaches you how to pray the Rosary well and why it matters, addressing issues such as:
• Why pray the Rosary?
• How long should a well-prayed Rosary take?
• What are the graces attached to praying the Rosary?
• How can I become a champion of the Rosary?
Our Lady needs Rosary champions to help bring peace in the world. Will you answer her call to prayer?
Why would an all-powerful, all-loving God allow suffering and evil in the world? As Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D. explains, unsatisfying answers to this important question are the #1 reason for atheism today. But by answering this question with logic and love (as well as with scientific, peer-reviewed evidence for the existence of life after death), we can not only answer this question truthfully and satisfactorily, but also teach our fellow Christians how to suffer well, in preparation for the limitless love of God that awaits us in eternity.

The vast majority of human beings believe in a higher power, but few can clearly and articulately explain what they believe in or why. When it comes to explaining one's beliefs, most rely on intuition or personal experience, relegating faith to the realm of subjective judgment as opposed to objective truth. In Going Deeper: A Reasoned Exploration of God and Truth, Leo Severino presents a systematic, easy-to-understand, journey that grounds the certitude of faith in logic and reason. The author maps out a train of thought that begins with everyday events, reasons its way through proofs of the existence of God, then goes on to describe the deep purpose inscribed in every human heart. For those not well versed in theology or philosophy, this book is an accessible way to tether matters of faith to demonstrable premises and logical conclusions. For those with deeper theological formation, this book will provide fresh perspectives on the classic arguments that demonstrate how faith and reason go hand in hand.
Leo Severino earned degrees, with honors, in Philosophy and Law from the University of Southern California. He worked as a young lawyer in the world of corporate transactions before transitioning to filmmaking, working at 20th Century Fox before co-founding Metanoia Films. Leo has written and produced several feature films including Bella and Little Boy. This book is the fruit of years of theological studies and teaching classes on the Christian faith.

This book is a rare gem: a pity, engaging, and creative book on logic and basic philosophy that is never dull, pedantic, or even predictable. Severino's gifts as a thinker and communicator are as impressive as they are unassuming.
–Carl Olson, Editor, Catholic World Report; Author, Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead?
With atheism and agnosticism on the rise, and in the face of changing cultural attitudes, Going Deeper is a breath of fresh air and a shot in the arm.
–Steve Ray, Author, Crossing the Tiber; Host, The Footprints of God film seriesGoing Deeper walks you through questions that every person has asked from the beginning of time.
–Terry Barber, Author, How to Share Your Faith with Anyone
Many people think faith and reason are at odds. Leo Severino's careful reasoning shows why that idea is mistaken. God's existence and human purpose are knowable, starting from deep reflection on something as simple as a leaf.
–Mark P. Shea, Author, By What Authority?
When you hear the word “addiction”, what typically comes to mind? Needles? Alcohol? Pills? As Jim Owens, MA, LPC explains, addiction is much simpler, including everything from substances to technology, screen time, work, shopping, and even sugar. Addictions and distractions are used to manage pain—but in the process, end up damaging our brains, our relationships, and our ability to find lasting happiness. Jim gives scientific evidence and practical advice for overcoming wounds, to help hurt people become healed people.
At the conclusion of this talk, you will also be able to hear a bonus sample of the CD: Know Your Story: The Love God in the Narrative of Your Life by Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT.
People love stories. But when we lose sight of where the story of our life is going, the “narrative” and meaning of our lives becomes confusing to us, and we can lose hope. In this dynamic talk, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT, renews our sense of hope and wonder (and humor), revealing that the reason we love stories is that we are part of a good story; one that answers the deepest desires and longings of our hearts. Whatever chapter our lives are in, God can transform our story, so that we can know and experience the beauty, adventure, and love for which we were created.
