    Second Topic – Fulton Sheen on the Priesthood

    In this year for priests, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, the postulator for the cause for canonization of Archbishop Fulton Sheen says that we should be looking to Sheen for his writings on the priesthood. Originally given as a retreat for Irish clergy in 1977, we look at Sheen’s Called and Chosen: The Never Changing Face of the Priesthood, in which he shares with remarkable frankness and amazing precision, his thoughts and feelings on what it means to be a priest of God.

    Third Topic – The Domestic Church

    Pope John Paul II wrote that the “little domestic church, like the greater Church, needs to be constantly and intensely evangelized: hence its duty regarding permanent education in the faith.” That's a tall order for busy Catholic mothers. You might even say it's as big as a house: You wouldn't want to clean the whole thing in one fell swoop but, if you take it one room at a time, you'll get the job done. In a systematic course for mothers that's equally useful for groups and individuals, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle shows us how to remodel our homes based on the spiritual design of Holy Mother Church.
