Kresta in the Afternoon – June 15, 2017 – Hour 2

+  Catholic Women's Leadership

  • Description: The mission of the Women of Grace Benedicta Leadership Institute for Women is to identify, educate, develop, and train Catholic women to be active leaders and mentors of the day in accord with their state in life. By infusing family life, communities, institutions, organizations and governmental agencies with Catholic moral and social teaching, the leaders trained by this Institute will do much to infuse a Culture of Life into contemporary society and will “aid humanity in not falling.” To that end, the Institute is offering a first of its kind program that provides women with the opportunity to acquire a certification or graduate credit hours in Catholic Women’s Leadership. Graduate credit hours can then be applied toward a Master of Arts in Theology degree with a concentration in Catholic Women's Leadership. We talk to one of course instructors, Dr. Monica Miller.

    • That Nothing May Be Lost: Reflections on Catholic Doctrine and Devotion

      Fr. Paul Scalia reveals a scholar's mind and a pastor's heart in these inspiring reflections on a wide range of Catholic teachings and practices. Rooted in Scripture, the beauty and truth of these insights places the reader on a path to a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God. While keeping the focus on the theology and teachings of the Church, Fr. Scalia also covers these topics:

      • shows the unity that comes from the seven sacraments
      • provides a road map to a life of grace
      • encourages a strong devotion to our Blessed Mother
      • provides guidance on how to develop a continuous conversation with God
      These ponderings are coupled with powerful and moving introductory essays penned by highly regarded Catholics, each offering a glimpse into the Catholic faith realized. Rev. Paul Check, Jim Towey, Dr. Scott Hahn, Mary Ellen Bork, Gloria Purvis, Raymond Arroyo, Lizz Lovett and Helen Alvare each open a section of the book with a personal account of his or her interaction with the faith. Fr. Scalia's writings then offer insight into developing and growing one's faith and relationship with God. Additionally, Archbishop Charles Chaput offers a thought provoking foreword to help the reader with a meaningful journey through the many aspects of the Catholic faith presented throughout this book. "Fr. Scalia has written a book that deepens our faith and leads us closer to God in a hundred different ways." --Most Reverend Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia, from the Foreword "Fr. Scalia has a unique gift of taking stories from Scripture that we've heard many times and casting them into a whole new light. In this book he opens up Catholic teaching in fresh and sometimes surprising directions that will change the way you think about your faith." --Carrie Gress, Author, Nudging Conversations "It is the great joy of a priest to see the two people he loves most, the Lord Jesus and whichever person he is caring for at that moment, in each other's arms. It is my hope that the many reflections Fr. Scalia offers us in these pages will bring us all into the arms of the only One who can ultimately satisfy." --Fr. John Riccardo, Author, Heaven Starts Now (learn more)
