The Blessed Mother and You
How to nurture and develop a relationship with the Blessed Mother that will transform your life. Who was the Mary in Scripture? Who is Mary for us now? While Mary sometimes remains the hidden masterpiece of the Divine Mind, her life on earth and her apparitions from heaven are a glimpse into the unfathomable depths of God’s love and mercy. What is Mary saying to us, and how can her words change our lives? How can we connect with our Mother in Heaven, feel her transforming caress, experience her transcendent love? From past apparitions, such as Guadalupe, Fatima, and Lourdes, to modern day encounters, you’ll be amazed at what she has done for others and what she can do for you. Never underestimate the prayers of a mother.
The Place of Miracles
As a much neglected, sometimes feared, frequently misunderstood Sacrament, Reconciliation is a precious, heavenly gem waiting to be discovered or rediscovered by Catholics. The grace of this Sacrament is most powerful. Jesus, Himself, said to St. Faustina Kowaska, as recorded in her Diary. “There [in Confession] the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated.” After hosting this eye-opening, engaging, emotionally stirring and effective talk, parishes across the country have seen many of their members decided to receive the Sacrament regularly.
Sexuality & Healing – God’s Way
Sexuality is one of the most powerful forces in the world. God’s plan for us is that it be a source of tremendous love and union, never lingering hurt. This talk will uncover hidden forces that drive us, the dangers that can ensnare us, hidden facts that society at large ignores or doesn’t know that support the Church’s teachings, and dangers we can avoid or heal from. Learn how God’s love can keep us in, or restore us to, a state of wholeness and peace in the area of our sexuality. Learn of its purpose, its sacredness, and how the pictures that the world paints of sexuality can be very different from the life-giving pictures that God paints.
