The Search – Women's Guide – English

Augustine Institute

The Search is a seven-part video series for those looking for meaning in life and for the answers to life’s deepest questions.

This Women's Participant Guide is specifically designed to accompany the series and facilitate discussion within small groups of women—and to spur reflection for individual viewers. Each session in the guide provides women with prayers, points of discussion, and challenges to help them grow deeper in their relationships with each other, with creation, and with the author of all things.

"About The Search

Why are we here? What is life all about? What happens when we die? These are some of life’s deepest questions, rooted in the human heart’s deepest desires: happiness, love, beauty, meaning. Where can we find the answers to these questions and these desires? Until satisfied, we are left questioning, longing, and searching.

The Search video series guides viewers through an arc of seven episodes, examining the great big story of everything—life and death, sorrow and happiness, science and faith—as astrophysicists, psychologists, astronauts, neuroscientists, professors, athletes, artists, and the beauty of the cosmos all point to one big (and perhaps surprising) conclusion: that Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church have the best and most satisfying answers to every one of the questions and desires of the human heart.

The Hidden Power of Kindness - Book

The Hidden Power of Kindness - Book

You’re almost certainly not as kind as you ought to be—and your relationships with God and those you love may be suffering as a result. Probably you just can’t find the time—and can’t ever seem to develop the patience—that you need in order to be consistently kind amidst the irritations that afflict you daily. That’s why The Hidden Power of Kindness is such a godsend.

There’s nothing complicated or magical about learning to be kinder; it just takes greater attention to the things that you do and how you do them. These pages show you how to become ore aware of even your most offhand daily actions. You’ll find simple, step-by-step, and spiritually crucial directions for who to overcome the habitual unkindnesses that creep—undetected—into the behavior of even the most careful souls.

If you want to make progress in the spiritual life, you can’t afford to miss the bracing insights in this handbook for souls who yearn to be kinder. They’ll give you years of solid help in overcoming sin so that, finally, you’ll live more fully with others and more fruitfully in God’s love.

"This wonderful book increases our insights into the wonders of the message that speaks so powerfully to us: 'Love is patient, love is kind...'"
-Sr. Mary Rose McGeady, Covenant House

Discover how in God’s mercy we find a reason for joy here on earth and a reasonable expectation for eternal joy in Heaven. Mike Pacer’s engaging and straightforward approach sheds light on the following:

 • The merciful and loving God revealed in the Old Testament
 • Jesus Christ as the source of mercy and reason for hope
 • The hope imparted through the message of Divine Mercy given to St. Faustina
 • Mary’s role as the Mother of Mercy and Hope

Hope is not merely a feeling, but also an action through which our lives are transformed. Mike provides practical suggestions on how we can live more joyful lives through being merciful to others and receiving mercy ourselves.

Praise for Mercy and Hope

“In this book, Mike Pacer offers a loving, heartfelt account of the hope he’s found in Divine Mercy. Through his personal reflections on Scripture, St. Faustina’s writings, and the theological virtues, he offers fresh insights into the hope-filled mystery of God's merciful love.”

– Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, author of 33 Days to Morning Glory


“Mike has hit a home run with Mercy and Hope. It so clearly presents mercy for what, or better, who mercy is—Jesus. This truth is so beautifully presented throughout the book that one can literally touch and be touched by Jesus.”

– Most Rev. David D. Kagan, Bishop of Bismarck

 

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.

7 Secrets of Confession - Book

7 Secrets of Confession - Book

Click here to read book sample.

Vinny Flynn, author of the best-seller, 7 Secrets of the Eucharist (100,000 copies sold), presents a similar approach to the Sacrament of Confession in this new book that reveals 7 key "secrets" or hidden truths about the great spiritual beauty, power and depth of Confession.

The understanding that many Catholics have of the Sacrament of Confession is so limited and narrow in its focus that it keeps them from discovering the real beauty and value of this Sacrament... beauty and value that even a young child can understand if it's presented properly.
For too many Catholics, Confession is just a means to an end: cleaning us up from sin so we can receive Communion. But, as Pope Francis tells us, Confession is much more than "going to the dry cleaner." It's "an encounter with Jesus, who waits for us as we are."

In his years of speaking all over North America, Flynn saw that many Catholics have this limited appreciation of Confession, and the urgent need for clear teaching about this great Sacrament. If you have not yet experienced Confession as a wonderful, personal encounter with Christ; if you do not yet look forward to going to Confession with the same eagerness and expectation with which you receive Holy Communion, this book is for you. It will be a whole new way of going to Confession, inviting you to begin an exciting personal journey to healing and holiness. It may change your life.

 

This is a wonderful resource for the Jubilee Year of Mercy. It paints an attractive positive picture of the Sacrament of Penance. Peter - Yoogali, NSW
