The Guillotine and the Cross

The Rise of the Vendée (Live Webinar Event)
Check, Christopher
Tuesday and Thursday, August 23 and 25 @ 8:00 p.m. ET (5:00 p.m. PT)

“The story of Vendée should be a beacon for Catholics today. These heroic peasants summon us to rise and protect Holy Mother Church from those determined to destroy her under color of law. The glory of Vendée is the glory of Calvary—self-sacrifice giving life to the Church.”

– Anne Gardiner, New Oxford Review

– Josef Pieper, Leisure: The Basis Of Culture

Christian Kenosis

And the Errors of Yoga, Zen, and Transcendental Meditation
Campbell, David C., D.Min.
Thursdays, September 8 and 15 @ 7:30 p.m. ET

People are always trying to do without religion, even pray without it. Many in these days, in fact, claim to be “spiritual” without being “religious.” Secularized forms of spirituality (which is what many versions of Yoga, Zen, and Transcendental Meditation have become) can’t deliver what they promise. Spirituality that can deliver is rooted in the mystery of Christ, fully human and fully divine.



Living Christ

Reclaiming the Church in Our Home and Life
Clayton, David
Sunday, September 11 @ 6:30 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. ET

In this talk, Clayton describes, through his own ‘story in prayer,’ the profound effect of prayer in our lives. Using the book The Little Oratory that he co-wrote, Clayton discusses how to reclaim an almost lost tradition that families used for centuries to build a beautiful bridge between home and church, and to help live the liturgical life of the Church more fully in the home.



Dancing with the Devil

The Errors of Liberation Theology
Marshner, William, S.T.D.
Tuesdays, September 20 and 27 @ 7:30 p.m. ET

“Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes, not divine, but demonic.”

– Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Truth and Tolerance: Christian Belief and World Religions



Tied to Technology?

How the Technocratic Paradigm Can Be Overcome in Christ
Cuddeback, John, Ph.D.
Sunday, October 2 @ 6:00 p.m. ET (Dinner included; lecture to begin @ 7:00 p.m. No RSVP required.)

It has become apparent that something must be done about technology in our lives. But we feel lost: just what is the problem, and how do we address it? This lecture will examine what Pope Francis calls the technocratic paradigm, and will offer a diagnosis along with concrete steps to address this fundamental problem of our times.



Reading the Scripture for All It’s Worth

(Live Webinar Event)
Carnazzo, Rev. Hezekias
Wednesday, October 5 @ 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. PT)

“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17



Abuse of Language, Abuse of Power

Reilly, Robert
Sunday, October 9 @ 7:00 p.m. ET

“Human words and language accomplish a two-fold purpose, as Plato without doubt would have answered—in clear agreement with the entire tradition of Western thought. …First, words convey reality. We speak in order to name and identify something that is real, to identify it for someone, of course—and this points to the second aspect in question, the interpersonal character of human speech.”

– Josef Pieper, Abuse of Language, Abuse of Power
