As a medical doctor, licensed psychotherapist, and Deacon, Doctor Bob McDonald knows very well the deep hunger and inner needs of the human heart.

Discover the immensity of God's love revealed by His Real Presence.

December 2018 CD of the Month

Internationally renowned speaker and theologian Dr. Scott Hahn teaches the importance of giving our complete “yes” to Jesus Christ and fully recognizing him as King of Kings, and Lord over all. Dr. Hahn delves into Scripture to show that by dedicating ourselves to the Lord, he can accomplish more in us and through us than we ever could on our own. This talk is filled with wisdom for all who want to grow closer to God.

November 2018 CD OF THE MONTH

Fr. Mike Schmitz, one of the leading presenters in the Church today, speaks powerfully about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He makes clear the truth that Christ deeply loves and wants to encounter each of us as we are, with all our imperfections. Fr. Mike debunks the lies we often believe about not being good enough to approach Jesus, and he draws upon Scripture to explain rationally why we go to priests to encounter God’s mercy and forgiveness in Confession.

An Additional Selection for November 2018

In this talk, internationally known speaker and author Matthew Leonard defines and discusses the three traditional stages of prayer. According to Scripture, every one of us is called to "be perfect" and to "pray without ceasing." Prayer is the path to God, and many of us have been saying prayers all our lives. But are we really praying? Matthew lays out the practical steps to achieve union with God through deep prayer, even in the midst of this busy world.
