The Roots of the Crisis

The Roots of the Crisis

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.”

 

Advent: Rethinking the Season

Advent: Rethinking the Season

Advent is an odd season. Unlike most other seasons, it’s a season that isn’t about itself, but is instead about preparing for Christmas. But that reality often gets lost in the shuffle and stress of trying to find all the right gifts, decorations, and dinner ingredients. In this talk, Dr. Tim Gray uses storytelling and the readings of the Old Testament to explain that we need to live the ‘pre-season’ of Advent well, so we can be prepared to welcome and receive the greatest gift God the Father wants to give us at Christmas: His Son, Jesus.

 

“Dr. Gray has an engaging way of teaching, with great stories and analogies. He makes the readings from Isaiah and the Old Testament really come alive, no matter the liturgical year. I learned so much about Advent from this talk.”

13 Reasons Why You Matter

13 Reasons Why You Matter

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.

 

Noelle's talk is both highly entertaining and deeply moving. She reminded me that no matter how bad things may seem, there is always hope. Everyone I know needs to hear this.

Spanish - Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe es venerada con gran devoción en el Continente Americano. En esta plática, el orador y catequista Luis Soto (nacido y criado en México) nos ayuda a profundizar en esta gran historia y a entender por qué es llamada “Emperatriz de América” ó “Reina del Continente Americano” por millones de personas incluyendo el Papa San Juan Pablo II. Es a ella a quien recurren millones de personas pidiendo por su intercesión, recordando esta bellísima frase que le dijo al indígena de nombre Juan Diego: “No se entristezca tu corazón….¿Acaso no estoy yo aquí que soy tu madre?

The Life of Padre Pio: Pray, Hope and Don't Worry

The Life of Padre Pio: Pray, Hope and Don't Worry

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.”


 

“This is an excellent talk! Matthew Arnold speaks in a way that is both informative and inspiring!” Mary - Lindstrom, MN
