What Is Divine Mercy & Why Is It Important Today?

We all need to be familiar with The Divine Mercy because the keys to a more enriched spiritual life lie in the details of the story. Catholicism Live! invites you to look beyond the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the “Jesus  I Trust In You” image.

During this program, we will explain and answer several important questions:

  • Who  was Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska and what is her relationship to The Divine Mercy?
  • What is The Divine Mercy message and devotion?
  • What does Church Teaching and Sacred Scripture says about God’s Mercy?
  • What is the Feast of Divine Mercy?
  • Why is Divine Mercy important today?

All About St. Joseph

All About St. Joseph

What do we know about St. Joseph?

We will focus on four aspects of the life of St. Joseph; his chastity, obedience, prudence and guardianship.

Joseph put his love to work. He did not merely tell Jesus and Mary that he loved them. He acted on his love. He lived it. That is the secret of true love!

In St. Joseph we see the simplicity of the Gospel lived out in a humble way. If we are united with God and the grace he offers us through the Church we can follow the example of Joseph in our daily lives.

During this program you’ll discover why St. Joseph inspired countless other saints to live more humbly.

Aging with Grace

Our society does anything but value aging. “Anti-aging” is more than a facial cream or a hair product; it’s a widespread attitude. What does our faith say about aging, besides our need to respect the elderly? What is our calling as we age?

Did you know that senior citizens are the subject of many of Pope Francis’ messages?

Join Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox to discover a message of hope & joy!

Finding Hope

We all struggle to live and survive in a culture that focuses entirely on the wrong things: wrong values, wrong direction, wrong understanding of reality, and that can lead to chaos and total hopelessness. The rat race seems unending and often leads only to disillusionment, discouragement, depression and even despair. In the midst of all this, however, God is present with His love and wisdom and healing, and this brings us great hope.

Join Father Ed Hauf, OMI, and his guest Jason Nunez (host of John 3:30 Podcast) to discover how you can find hope in your life, no matter what you’re going through.

The Real Bethlehem

As we prepare for Advent and Christmas, our nativity scenes are coming out of storage and into our everyday lives. We turn our hearts and minds to that ‘little town’ where Christ was born. What is the REAL Bethlehem like? Today, we will share this beautiful city and its people with you!

Advent is a season of waiting, a season filled with hope. Here are a few tips that will help you and your family:

Use an Advent calendar and/or a wreath to mark this time of preparation. Display the Wreath and/or calendar on your dining table or a prominent place as a reminder to pray with the family.

Spend time in prayer: make an appointment with God – a commitment to spend time with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration or a commitment to pray the Rosary with Mary. John Paul II said “Praying the Rosary is contemplating the face of Jesus with Mary.”

Light a candle before an image of the Blessed Virgin, during meals or while praying the Rosary.

Take up a book during Advent – find a book on spirituality, on Mary, or other topic that can be read before Christmas.

Place a Nativity set in a prominent place in your home, but only put out the empty manger, some of the animals. Place some statues from your Nativity nearby, such as the Shepherd, Mary and Joseph, sheep and other animals. Each week, you can move the statues a little closer.

Participate in your parish’s Advent/Christmas Giving projects such as “adopt a family”, “give gifts to the needy” or make home visits to the elderly and homebound in your parish.

Suggest children, grandchildren or nieces/nephews to write a letter to Jesus instead of Santa.

Give children a piece of straw to place in the manger for each good deed they do during Advent as a gift to the baby Jesus.

Join Father Ed Hauf, OMI, and special guest Dan Duet, lay evangelist and music minister – who will share from experience traveling around the country about the habits of highly effective Catholics. Don’t miss this very practical episode!
