  • Description: "The words you speak to yourself shape your self-perception. Your self-perception shapes your actions. Your actions shape your life.

+  Rethinking Mary in the New Testament: What the Bible Tells Us about the Mother of the Messiah

  • Description: "Scholars often have questioned how much the New Testament can tell us about the Mother of Jesus. After all, Mary appears only in a few accounts and speaks on limited occasions. Can Scripture really support the many Marian beliefs developed in the Church over time? In Rethinking Mary in the New Testament, Dr. Edward Sri shows that the Bible reveals more about Mary than is commonly appreciated.

+  The Holy Veil of Manoppello: The Human Face of God

  • Description: "The horrific 1915 earthquake that levelled tiny Manoppello, Italy, brought forth from the local church's rubble one of Christendom's long-lost, but most precious relics: the small cloth that lay on Jesus's face in the tomb. Saint John speaks of it in his Gospel: When Peter went into the tomb, he saw linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself. Tradition says that Our Lady herself laid this cloth on His face before He was wrapped in His shroud for burial." (Originally aired December 11, 2018)
