The U.S. government's bigotry toward pro-life Americans is at an all-time high.
sudden persecution and targeting of 40 Days for Life are an attack on
free speech for all Americans--including abortion supporters. We will
continue to fight (and defeat) absurd laws that prevent having a
pro-life opinion in public near an abortion facility.

Joseph of Nazareth stands out as the model par excellence of Christian virtue, a brilliant example of obedience to God and trust in Divine Providence.

Now, the Church is seeking to deepen its understanding of the Guardian of Jesus and of the Holy Family. Featuring interviews with leading experts and theologians, in addition to powerful first-hand testimonials — St. Joseph: Our Spiritual Father provides viewers with a glimpse into one of the most incredible lives in all of human history — a figure whose spiritual fatherhood remains open to all of us.

Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession
Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession, explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God's love. By looking at God's revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God's invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The season of Advent is a perfect time for spiritual renewal through encountering God’s mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the "source and summit" of the Christian life. Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ's real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. Go here to see the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.
The Search // Episode 5 // Who is Jesus? The most beautiful part of this story is this we can know God's love, personally. This is the person of Jesus. But how did this seemingly insignificant carpenter born into poverty in a dusty corner of the Roman Empire become the most pivotal figure in all of history? Christianity isn’t simply a philosophy for life – the center of Christianity is a person. We look at the life of Jesus and what he came to do. Ultimately, we need to decide if Jesus really was who he said he was. We can’t sit on the fence. Because if Jesus really was who he said he was, we need to make him the Lord of our lives, and everything changes.
The Search // Episode 6 // Am I Saved? What Jesus did for us through his life, death and resurrection was the greatest act of love in history. He saved us. He did this for each one of us. Personally. But some might feel unworthy of this gift of love. We may feel we have too much baggage. We may feel unlovable. But God didn’t come to reveal himself to us on a pedestal, he came to enter into our messy human condition. To fix us from within. To transform us from the inside out. Some might be surprised by how generous the love of God really is. We don’t deserve God’s love, but that’s the amazing reality of God’s mercy. This relationship with God isn’t all about our love for Him. It’s about His love for us that changes our lives forever.
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most holy Eucharist. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
Q. What do I do if I cannot go to confession or receive Holy Communion because of the Coronavirus?
A. In the circumstances of public Mass being suspended and Lenten penance services being canceled, there are devotions that enable you to receive forgiveness of your sins (under certain conditions) and the consolation of the grace of the Eucharist. These devotions have been encouraged by the church in times of great distress and have been practiced by the saints.
