Mother Mary’s Great Love for Us and How Her Intercession Saved My Life
Christine Watkins gives her personal testimony of how she led a life far from God and should have died from her sins, but Mary asked Jesus to save her, and she received a miracle of Divine mercy. This talk expounds upon the nature of Mary, the love of Mary, and her desires for us. It closes with a guided prayer called “Meeting the Mary,” with music and lights dimmed, inviting the hearers to a closer and more intimate relationship with her.
Stories of Encounters with Jesus and Mary, and Living in the Presence of God
In this engaging presentation, Mrs. Watkins shares some of the most exciting and moving testimonies of people’s encounters with God and Mary that she has collected over the years, from the everyday to radical personal callings. A short video is shown of wayward men who changed and followed God’s call, some of whom became priests, as well as a clip of interviews with the real people in the book and movie, “Heaven is for Real.”
Where “The Greatest Miracles Take Place and Are Incessantly Repeated”
These are the words Jesus gave to St. Faustina Kowalska to describe the Sacrament of Reconciliation. In this talk on the sacrament, people are encouraged to view it in the most positive light and take advantage of it often. People tend to want to go to Reconciliation in good numbers after the talk, and it is helpful if priests can be available for the sacrament at that time. The talk closes with a guided examination of conscience, called “Jesus on the Cross,” with music and lights dimmed.

Celebrating, Understanding, and Living the Eucharist
This talk helps parishioners understand what is actually happening in the Mass beyond the naked eye and offers evidence of the True Presence. People are given guidance and inspiration in how to participate prayerfully in the Mass and how to receive the magnanimous gifts that it offers. They are also encouraged to share these gifts by invited others to Mass who have left the Catholic Church or never stepped foot in one. The talk also includes the importance of Adoration and spending time in silence with God. The video clip shown of the Eucharistic miracle, “The Miracle of Lanciano.”
