    Holy Spirit, Promise of the Father

    Pentecost Power

    Pentecost Power

    Without the Pentecost, the gospel is not really "Good News."  Many people actually experience Christianity as bad news.  The Ten Commandments were impossible for even King David to keep.  Though Christians are justified by grace through faith and receive friendship with God as a pure gift, they are still called to live the gospel lifestyle, as portrayed by the Beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount.  Trying to do this on will-power alone is a pure recipe for guilt and frustration.

    Love Unlimited - Cornelius & the Business of a Universal Church

    Love Unlimited - Cornelius & the Business of a Universal Church

    Some view the Catholic Church as multi-national corporation.  If so, its DBA should be love unlimited.  In contrast to ever natural love, the love that should categorize the life of the church is charity, agape, God's love which is, like God, universal, infinite,  without limits or boundaries.  This is illustrated by the story of the centurion Cornelius, a reading for the 6th Sunday of Easter B.

    Holy Family during hidden years

    Holy Family during hidden years

    12 minute podcast that describes the lifestyle of the Holy Family in Nazareth during the “hidden years” before Jesus launched his public ministry.
    The four gospels tells us very little about the life of Jesus between his birth and his baptism besides his presentation forty days after his birth, the flight to Egypt and return to Nazareth, and his pilgrimage to Jerusalem with his family at age 12.

When The Church Was Young

Were this fascinating book read by a “few more people,” Protestantism would be decimated. What an appreciation D’Ambrosio gave me for the first several centuries of the Church’s history!

RSIgnacio ,

For those raising families in today’s society, you MUST listen to this!

Dr Italy is a terrific storyteller and presents some very profound truths in such practical and easy-to-understand concepts. I really enjoyed learning while listening to his words! I hope to take what I have l learned from his teachings and apply them in every aspect of my life!
