Catholic Connection – May 24, 2016 – Hour 2

+  Intro

+  Did Jesus Really Rise From The Dead?

  • Description: Using a popular question-and-answer format, this book examines the historical evidence concerning the fate of Jesus. Did Jesus really die on the cross? If so, what became of his body? Was it stolen? Misplaced? Is the resurrection a cleverly devised plot to found a new religion? Did the disciples of Jesus hallucinate? Is the Resurrection of Jesus a myth developed decades later, after the original disciples' experience of Jesus was distorted by a subsequent generation? Or did Jesus rise from the dead, as he promised and as his disciples came to believe and sacrifice their lives to proclaim?

+  New Leaven Initiative

  • Description: Many Catholics yearn to live more deeply inside the Gospel by engaging in the courageous work of transformation that Jesus said would anchor them to withstand any storm. By addressing each of several topics from everyday life, New Leaven helps persons and couples close the gap between the Gospel and the way they actually live at home. This is done not just by human effort, but by seeking the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit while gathered with others as a small group of disciples. As the level of prayerful trust and courage grows, the group becomes more and more expectant for what God will do in their midst.
