Israeli Invasion of Hamas

The US has criticized Israeli forces for not protecting innocent civilians but also acknowledges Israel’s right to defend itself. The Federal Aviation Authority temporarily banned all US flights to Israel. What’s really happening in that region? Why did Israel invade? Is there a “right” or “wrong” side in the fight? Steve Ray, a veteran tour guide and historian of the Holy Land, joins us with his insight.

Image and Reality: Finding the Real God in an Unreal World

  • Description: Our culture saturates us with images and ideas that create a false reality—one that gives us impossible expectations. We expect to succeed without giving any effort, to be constantly entertained and to remain healthy without watching our diet. Clothing models set a standard, especially for women, that is impossible to match in real life. How is this false reality created? How can we find the real God in an unreal world? Teresa Tomeo joins us to discuss these questions and the upcoming Image and Realty conference.

Prayer Works! Getting a Grip on Catholic Spirituality

  • Description: "Don't worry. You don't need money or a monastery. You have this book. You have a sense of humor. And you have God's grace. You're ready to pray. Prayer is how we talk with God. The Bible says we should do it constantly. Jesus said it's the one thing we need to do. Your soul was made to be in conversation with God. Nobody knows you better. Nobody cares more about you. The good news is that prayer isn't something exotic or esoteric - not when Matthew Leonard talks about it. He makes the methods manageable."

Index of Culture and Opportunity

  • Description: "Numerous social and economic trends are at work, shaping and re-shaping America. And now they’re being tracked—in the 2014 Index of Culture and Opportunity, released today by The Heritage Foundation’s Institute for Family, Community and Opportunity. The Index tracks 31 cultural and economic indicators—from the marriage rate and religious attendance to welfare dependence, workforce participation, and educational opportunities—and categorizes them in three sections: culture, poverty and dependence, and general opportunity. It offers an at-a-glance view of change, as registered by each indicator over the last 10 years, and discusses the ramifications of those changes—whether they are moving in the right or wrong direction."

        • 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!
