+  Unleashing the Power of Scripture (2 segments)

  • Description: The Bible is the bestselling book of all time. It’s been translated into every conceivable language - even Klingon - and was the first book to roll off Gutenberg's new printing press. There's a reason for all this. No other book is the living word that can take you into the very heart of God. Mark Hart joins us with insights and exercises for diving deeper into the greatest love story ever told.

    • Unleashing the Power of Scripture: A Guide for Catholics

      In his entertaining and engaging style, Mark Hart (also known as "The Bible Geek") shows readers why Scripture should be central to our life with the Lord. When we become immersed in Scripture, he says, we allow it not the secular culture to form our minds and hearts. In the story of the Bible, we find our own story as we discover how much God loves us and desires to save us and dwell among us. This book also considers the place of Scripture in the liturgy, introduces the practice of lectio divina, the prayerful reading of Scripture, and shows how the Scriptures connect to the sacraments. Includes a ten-step plan to establish the habit of reading Scripture. (learn more)

+  Our Lady of Atonement

  • Description: Mary is ever at our side and is invoked in so many ways – Queen of Peace, Queen of Heaven, Queen of Angels and so many more. In 1901, Servant of God Fr. Paul of Graymoor, invoked the title “Our Lady of the Atonement” focusing on Mary at the foot of the Cross when Christ made her the mother of all humanity, and emphasized her work for unity and her intercession on behalf of all people with God, in Christ. July 9 is the Feast of Our Lady of the Atonement. We'll talk with Fr Dan Callahan.
