How do you fight for justice when the laws are unjust?
Where are the lines between a righteous cause and revenge?
The child of a reputable family and a faithful son of the Church, Robert of Locksley had no intention of becoming an outlaw. But the relentless cruelty and tyranny by the elite nobility of England demanded that someone rise up for the oppressed. And so Robert of Locksley became Robin Hood—a man thrown into a fierce struggle to balance his deep faith with a call to action in a violent and unjust age.
Featuring over sixty actors, cinematic sound, and original music, The Legends of Robin Hood is an exciting twelve-part audio drama from the award-winning Augustine Institute. Bold and inspiring, the Augustine Institute’s audio dramas take storytelling to a whole new level of sound that quickens the imagination and inspires the heart.
This 6-CD set includes a discussion guide that will help you discuss major concepts and themes from this unforgettable audio drama.

St. Teresa of Calcutta was a woman known and loved for her tender work among the poorest of the poor. Behind her drive and desire to serve Christ’s poor was a profound understanding of the thirst of God for man, and man’s thirst for God. This guided meditation on Scripture and the teaching of Mother Teresa will lead those who read it into the heart of the mystery of God’s thirst for souls, and how man can meet the Lord’s thirst. Fr. Joseph Langford, an intimate friend of Mother Teresa’s and a co-founder with her of the Missionary of Charity Fathers, leads the reader into Mother Teresa’s love of God, and helps foster the love of God in the heart of the reader.
Divided into seven main sections, these meditations will provoke prayer on:
– The Dynamics of Thirst
– Prayer as Thirst
– Our Lady’s Example in Meeting God’s Thirst
– Thirst in the Service of God
– Sharing in the Thirst of Christ
– Jesus as the Incarnation of God’s Thirst
– Satiated Thirst
I Thirst provides an opportunity to spend a few minutes every day with Mother Teresa and the thirst of our Lord. It provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy, and to meet the thirst of God with our own thirst for him.
Fr. Joseph Langford (1951-2010)
Fr. Joseph Langford co-founded the Missionary of Charity Fathers in 1984 with Mother Teresa. He often gave retreats on Mother Teresa’s spirituality both to the Missionaries of Charity congregations and to many other groups. He is the author of the popular work on Mother Teresa, Mother Teresa’s Secret Fire. He recognized in Mother Teresa’s encounter with the thirst of Jesus and her emphasis on satiating that thirst a powerful symbol of God’s love for each person and a road into experiencing that love more profoundly.

Fr. Langford was confessor and retreat master for Mother Teresa’s religious sisters, as well as her confidante, in a privileged position to know the secrets Jesus had confided to her. Thus to have in this book, I Thirst, Fr. Langford’s retreat notes on Mother’s understanding of Jesus’ cry from the cross, is to have a priceless treasure. The untold riches of Mother Teresa’s heart – which are nothing but the untold riches of Christ’s own Heart – are here before us in these pages.

If you thirst for the living water of God, follow the wisdom of Mother Teresa and she will surely lead you to the source.
–Dan Burke, President of EWTN News and the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation
Father Langford’s reflections take us into the heart of Mother Teresa’s spirituality. Based on his close relationship with Mother and his own contemplation and teaching on this theme, these meditations help us encounter God more in our thirst for Him and His thirst for us.
–Dr. Edward Sri, Vice President for Formation, Fellowship of Catholic University Students
Ironically, in a world supposedly overflowing with self-esteem, many, many people cannot believe that "God thirsts" for them. This little book makes a convincing scriptural case that it is true! And moves us to love God, ourselves, and others better because of it. It is a perfect gem of spiritual reading .
–Helen M. Alvaré, Professor of Law, The Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University
In 2008, I traveled to Ethiopia for Catholic Relief Services and visited the large, bustling orphanage of the Missionaries of Charity, which served thousands of people of all ages each day. When I asked about the source of the sisters’ energy for all of this good work, I was led into a primitive chapel with a tabernacle and the words “I thirst,” over the Blessed Sacrament. The book, I Thirst: 40 Days with Mother Teresa, written by a priest who worked with Mother Teresa, provides 40 day portions of the rich spirituality of Saint Teresa of Calcutta. I Thirst communicates well Jesus’ desire or thirst to love us deeply and our inner thirst for His presence in our lives. I strongly encourage its use during Lent or any other time of the year.
–Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D., Archbishop of Louisville
El miedo es tan poderoso que puede paralizarnos, o peor aún, hacernos dar la espalda a los lugares, cosas y personas que son verdaderamente importantes. San Pedro sabía esto muy bien, por eso en el Evangelio de San Marcos entendemos que solo la fe en Jesús nos puede liberar para siempre, tal y como lo hizo con los primeros discípulos.
Acompaña a Luis Soto en esta serie de 10 episodios, totalmente en español, para profundizar en el conocimiento del Evangelio de San Marcos, como nunca antes lo habías hecho. Sumérgete en un recorrido por este Evangelio lleno de acción, que nos ofrece la perspectiva de San Pedro sobre la vida y enseñanzas de Jesús. Profundiza sobre el significado del seguimiento de Jesús, “el camino” y el verdadero discipulado, y descubre cómo Jesús revela su identidad con palabras y acciones llenas de autoridad. Considera las enseñanzas de Jesús en el Templo y acompáñalo de Getsemaní al Calvario siguiendo el Camino de la Cruz. Prepárate para una reflexión profunda del más corto de los cuatro evangelios.
Combinando las enseñanzas de Luis Soto y la belleza fílmica a la que el Augustine Institute nos tiene acostumbrados, esta serie LECTIO, la primera que se realiza totalmente en español, nos guía paso a paso por la profunda tradición eclesial para poder comprender y orar con el Evangelio. ?San Marcos, quien fuera traductor y compañero de San Pedro y San Pablo, nos ofrece su perspectiva de la vida, muerte y resurrección de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, un relato que busca fortalecer a los cristianos perseguidos en Roma, para que siguieran siendo discípulos fuertes y fieles, tal y como estamos llamados a ser nosotros.

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.
For Catholics, the Mass is entirely familiar, but often not well understood. Scripture scholar and well-known author Dr. Edward Sri takes listeners on a journey through the sacred liturgy that is sure to help Catholics experience the Mass more fully as the most powerful and important prayer of the Church. Dr. Sri examines the historical and biblical roots of the words, prayers, actions, and gestures contained within the Mass in order to arrive at a deeper understanding of their significance.
The realities of masculinity, femininity, and gender, and the relation of these to our identity, are being questioned like never before. Jason Evert, internationally-known Catholic speaker and author, leads the discussion beyond feelings to help us embrace an integrated understanding of the truth of our identity. Speaking the truth in love, he shows how the recognition of what our biology reveals helps us to understand who God created us to be and accompany others on their life's journey.
Matthew Arnold recounts the life story of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, a twentieth century saint and mystic who is known around the world as Padre Pio.
This presentation includes fascinating details about St. Pio’s ministry of hearing confessions, his ability to read souls, the multitude of miracles attributed to his intercession, and how he bore the stigmata, that is, the wounds of Christ. All are wise to learn from the advice of this holy man to “pray, hope, and don’t worry.”
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.
