Light in the Darkness: The Teachings of Fr. James Keller and the Christophers

  • Description: "In 1945, Father James Keller saw a world at war, the beginnings of the cold war, and divisions at home. He was a man who believed that against all odds one person could make a difference - so he started a grass-roots movement called The Christophers - literally "Christbearers" - in the belief that each individual has a role in bringing hope and change to a troubled world. And the response was staggering. The world was hungry for the message, and embraced Fr. Keller's motto: "IT IS BETTER TO LIGHT ONE CANDLE THAN TO CURSE THE DARKNESS."

Chuck Gallagher S.J., they have been involved with the PMRC since its earliest beginnings, and currently serve as its Directors.

        • Living in Love - Whether you have been married 4 months or 40 years, the Living in Love program suite offers a refreshingly positive experience, keen insight into masculinity and femininity, and a liberating perspective about the Sacrament of Matrimony. An initial retreat workshop leads to a follow on skills course packed with insights, everyday strategies, and practical skills that can equip you to live in love every day. (http://livinginlove.org/)
        • The Pastoral and Matrimonial Renewal Center (PMRC) - The Pastoral and Matrimonial Renewal Center (PMRC) recognizes Matrimony as a prophetic sign of Divine love. Couples can look to Christ's love for inspiration and motivation in the way they love one another. The Church can look at conjugal love for a deeper understanding and awareness of Christ's love for His people. Both relationships illumine the other. (http://www.pmrcusa.org/)
