        • Little Flowers Girls' Club - Little Flowers Girls Club® is a Catholic program for girls ages 5 and up based on learning Catholic virtues through the lives of Catholic saints, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Developed by a Catholic mom of eleven, Rachel Watkins. The Club strives to bring the Catholic faith alive and inspire the girls to become authentic Catholic women. Nine virtues are included in each of three different Wreaths or years of study. While the first wreath is loosely based on Fr. Lasance’s Catholic Girls Guide, all the wreaths provide an introduction to virtues that make them fun as well as easy to understand and put into practice. A fourth year, studying the fruits of the Spirit is also available. The format of the Clubs is flexible, with groups meeting monthly, bi-monthly or weekly. Badges for the virtues are earned by studying the saint associated with the virtue, memorizing relevant scripture verses and studying the Catechism. The program is flexible enough to use with a variety of age groups. Little Flowers Girls Club® has also been successfully implemented in the family. Sashes, vests, skirts, bandanas, t-shirts and other items are extras that add to the experience, but are not necessary to running a successful Club. The Leader's Guide for each Wreath offers suggestions for running meetings, planning crafts and activities, talks on virtues and other relevant information. The Member's Guide includes the activities, saints' biographies, pictures of the saints, and prayers for each girl. Each of the girls in the Club should purchase their own Member's Guide. Other items that leaders find useful - but are not necessary to running a successful club - are the Memory Verse CD/Cassettes, the Tea and Luncheon Manual, the Virtue Badges, and the Craft Companion and Merit Certificates. Leaders should have fun with the program and use the flexibility to choose the items that are right for your group's needs. God bless you in your work for His work!

Barely a Crime: A Novel

  • Description: "In this gripping thriller, two men from the Northern Irish underworld are recruited by an enigmatic stranger for a shadowy operation. Promising to make them very rich without involving them in theft or murder, the job seems too good to be true; in fact, it seems to be barely a crime. When Crawl and Kieran discover the identity of the man who has hired them for the break-in of the century, they realize they might be involving themselves in a high-stakes technological breakthrough. And they devise a scheme for demanding a bigger payout. As the law of unintended consequences kicks in, so do life-and-death consequences, not only for themselves, not only for many others, but for the whole world." (Originally aired April 5, 2016)

Campus Speakers: Why They Matter

  • Description: "Bill Clinton. Cecile Richards. Joe Biden. Wendy Davis. What do they have in common? For us, it’s this: Catholic colleges this spring have invited these public figures to enjoy prominent campus platforms and public honors, despite their public opposition to Catholic teaching on abortion and marriage. Why does this matter? Because it’s a betrayal of the mission of Catholic education and a scandal." (Originally aired May 12, 2016)

Pope Francis, Populism and the Agony of Latin America (2 segments)
