Aunque Santa Filomena vivió hace aproximadamente 1,700 años y apenas fue descubierta en las catacumbas de Roma a principios del siglo XIX, su fiel testimonio como joven virgen que fue martirizada por su pureza y su fidelidad a Cristo habla poderosamente a nuestra cultura, y especialmente a los jóvenes. Conocida comúnmente como una "trabajadora de maravillas", ella tiene la distinción de ser la única santa canonizada solamente sobre la base de los milagros profundos atribuidos a su intercesión. Santa Filomena es una poderosa defensora e intercesora que tenemos ante el trono de Dios Todopoderoso.

Commonly referred to as a "wonder worker", she has the distinction of being the only saint canonized solely on the basis of the profound miracles attributed to her intercession.

Incluye además detalles fascinantes sobre el ministerio del Santo Padre Pío escuchando confesiones, su capacidad para leer almas, la multitud de milagros atribuidos a su intercesión y cómo llevó los estigmas en su cuerpo, es decir, las heridas de Cristo. Todos deberíamos aprender del consejo del Padre Pío, cuando decía con firmeza; “Ora, confía y no te preocupes”.

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.

Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for youth and young adults. Yet despite the many TV shows, movies, and articles on this topic, suicide, depression, self-harm, and loneliness remain difficult subjects for adults of any age to discuss. Speaking with honesty, humor, and personal experience, Noelle Garcia tackles these issues head-on, encouraging those who are struggling (or know someone who is) that God's mercy and love are waiting for them; that you, and your life, truly matter.
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.

The clergy sexual abuse scandals have rocked the Catholic Church and caused a crisis of faith (and of evangelization) for many. When facing such a daunting and terrible crisis, it can be difficult to find the right way forward.
In this talk, Dr. Tim Gray explains with conviction and insight that to make any real and lasting change, we must keep faith, and look closely at the deep roots behind this crisis. Times of great scandal and corruption in the Church can be followed by times of even greater renewal and revival, if faithful men and women will enter the constructive conflict that truth requires.
“Tim offers a voice of reason and hope in the midst of these dire scandals. This talk brings light to the darkness.”
Narrated by Christopher O. Blum
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.”
