Talking with God: The Importance of Prayer & Study

Dr. Michael Patrick Barber

Have you ever struggled with prayer? Lack of time, focus, or understanding of what to do can all be a challenge. As Augustine Institute professor and author Dr. Michael Patrick Barber explains, prayer is critical to our relationship with God, just as good communication is critical to our relationships with our loved ones. Citing deep biblical insights and humorous personal stories, Dr. Barber offers encouragement and practical suggestions for how we can better approach the practice of prayer, and teaches the surprising importance of theological study. “The more you love someone, the more you want to know about them; and the more you know them, the more you love them.”

The Dark Passages of Scripture

The Dark Passages of Scripture

Has Scripture ever made you uncomfortable? Do you have questions or doubts about events in the Bible that seem difficult to explain? In this important talk, author and Augustine Institute professor Dr. Mark Giszczak illuminates "the dark passages of Scripture"— those biblical events of violence and suffering that may not seem compatible with a loving and merciful God. Dr. Giszczak explains how God's justice, mercy, and love are all wholly compatible in Scripture, and asserts the importance of reading these passages with faith, intelligence, and within the teaching of the Church.

 

Eucharistic Vision: A Challenge of Faith

Eucharistic Vision: A Challenge of Faith

In a recent Pew survey, two-thirds of Catholics reported that they did not know or believe in the Church's teaching on the Eucharist. Diving into the writings of early doctors and fathers of the Church, and drawing upon his own experience as a scholar of history, practicing Catholic, and former Protestant, Dr. John Sehorn addresses the “mind-boggling” and difficult truth of Jesus' presence in the Blessed Sacrament. It is a truth that confronts us, challenges us, and is one of the greatest gifts that we will ever receive.

 

Resurrection & Mercy: 3 Homilies for the Easter Season

Resurrection & Mercy: 3 Homilies for the Easter Season

Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Amid crisis, scandal, and confusion in the modern world, where does the good news of the Resurrection and God's endless mercy fit in? In these three homilies—on The Easter Vigil, Divine Mercy Sunday, and Pentecost—priest and pastor Fr. Brian Larkin shares stories and insights, including from G.K. Chesterton, George Weigel, St. John Paul II, St. Faustina Kowalska, and the Old and New Testaments, to proclaim the joy, hope, and mission of every Christian, to love and serve a God “who never tires of forgiving you”, and “who knows His way out of the grave.”

 

My Beloved Son: Meditations for Lent

My Beloved Son: Meditations for Lent

Bishop Robert Barron offers five sermons on the spiritual discipline we must cultivate in the Lenten season, a discipline centered in Christ. These meditations cover topics such as finding our identity in God, prayer as the key to mission, our thirst for God, how to end our alienation from God, and how to joyfully embrace the way of happiness.

Seven Last Sayings of Christ

Seven Last Sayings of Christ

Spoken as He suffered the agony of the cross, the seven last sayings of Christ recorded in the gospels have been the subject of prayer and inquiry by Christians for two thousand years. In this revealing presentation, Dr. Scott Hahn unlocks for us the deeper significance of Our Lord's last words, carefully chosen so that we might better understand the immense love of God for every person and His plan of salvation. Learn how Jesus' words are as profound and gripping today as when He uttered them on that first Good Friday.

 

This CD has re-started the spark I had lost! I am looking forward to listening to the other CDs I purchased! Bob - Fremont, OH

The Second Greatest Story Ever Told

The Second Greatest Story Ever Told

In this vastly popular talk, Fr. Gaitley describes the "second greatest story ever told" - a story that encompasses Divine Mercy, the life of St. Pope John Paul II, and the crucial role that Marian Consecration can play in your life. 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

The Lamb's Supper

The Lamb's Supper

Based on his best-selling book, Dr. Scott Hahn reveals the early Christians' key to understanding the Mass: the Book of Revelation. With its bizarre imagery, mystic visions of Heaven, and end-times prophecies, it mirrors the sacrifice and celebration of the Holy Eucharist. See the Mass with new eyes, pray the Liturgy with a renewed heart, and enter into the Mass more fully and enthusiastically!

 

Excellent! It is hard to express the spiritual impact this CD has had on me. I don't believe I will ever celebrate the Eucharist the same way again! Floy - Manchester, KY

Love - Sacrifice - Trust: He Showed Us the Way

Love - Sacrifice - Trust: He Showed Us the Way

Fr. Mike Schmitz shares important insights on the meaning of Christ’s Cross. He shows how God’s rescue mission for us includes the need for each person to embrace his own cross in order to reestablish trust in the Father and the understanding that love requires sacrifice. It also includes a bonus segment on Stations of the Cross, which features reflections on the Lord’s Passion and Death, accompanied by moving audio dramatizations from the Truth and Life Audio Bible.

 

Fr. Mike’s simple, yet powerful, reflections helped me to contemplate Christ’s passion in light of God’s perfect, fatherly love for me. Dennis – Batavia, IL
