My wife recently asked our children: “What makes Catholics different from your Evangelical and Protestant friends?” There are hundreds of distinctions but the most obvious difference is our Catholic devotions and doctrines regarding the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Eucharist:
Why is this and how do we as Catholics understand the Blessed Mother and the Eucharist together and also how do we confidently share it with non-Catholics?
I’m hosting a FREE and LIVE Catholic Webinar on “Mary and the Eucharist” in order to equip you with a clear and easy way to answer this question:
I’ll give you a free Cheat Sheet on “Mary and the Eucharist.”
I’ll give a presentation and then I will stick around live to do Q&A on this topic or any other theological topics.
And together we will excavate three topics:
How devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament relates to our love for the Blessed Mother.
How our love for the Blessed Mother relates to our faith in the Blessed Sacrament.
MOST IMPORTANT: I will show you the easiest and most persuasive explanation for non-Catholics that makes sense of why Catholics love Mary and the Eucharist. This will tool will make you into an Apostle for the Holy Eucharist.
As in previous Catholic Webinars, we will restrict it to the first 1,000 people who register. It’s free and we will be giving away more resources throughout the Catholic Webinar. You must reserve your spot to take part next Wednesday. As before, registration will be first come, first serve. I’ll see 1,000 of you live on next Wednesday evening.

I heard a priest say in his homily: “I do not recommend that you read Thomas Aquinas.” He had praised the great patron of theology, education, and scholar, but then implied that Saint Thomas was “too difficult.”
“Thomas Aquinas is too hard,” is a common myth and it derives from decades of teachers who were not enthusiastic and skilled in making Catholic Theology via Thomas Aquinas accessible to the ordinary person.
So here are 10 Reasons to Study Thomas Aquinas for 2016. Below you also find resources to help you:
Have you ever found yourself in a position where you needed to explain or defend our Catholic teaching about traditional matrimony, homosexuality, abortion, etc?
We can use Scripture and Tradition, but when talking to a non-Christian we often need to reach deeper and craft the discussion around NATURAL LAW. Natural Law Theory is one of the most powerful teachings – and yet so few Catholics know what it is or how to use it.
You are invited. Please join us:
I wrote my PhD dissertation on Natural Law and Thomas Aquinas, and I’ll be giving a short and complimentary online class on Natural Law and how it will help you understand and explain key topics related to human sexuality, grace, and apologetics.
All attendees will receive a pdf copy of our Catholic Bible Cheat Sheet (gives all the Bibile verses for all our Catholic doctrines) and a Worksheet on Natural Law. It’s a free gift to help you in the New Evangelization.
The single best thing that you can do is to commit to a schedule of daily mental prayer. Here are tips in no particular order:
Find a place in your home where you pray. Designate a space.
Find a time in the day when you pray. The prophets and the saints usually got up early to pray. Set your alarm clock earlier (go to bed earlier) and wake up to be with Christ in the morning.
Create a morning ritual that includes prayer. I recommend that it include Scriptural reading, also. The Bible is how God usually talks to you. “God never talks to me,” people often say. My response is, “Are you reading the Bible?” God talks to you in Scripture.
Use a timer on your phone. Start at 5 minutes and work up to 30 minutes daily.
Mental prayer is using your mind (“mental”) to speak to God. Tell him everything. Speak with your heart. Ask Him questions about your life. Ask Him theology questions? Ask Him to do more than you expect. Don’t be afraid to ask for insanely crazy requests. He likes to answer those best because they prove that we didn’t accomplish it.
Keep a New Testament or spiritual reading book nearby. If you’re mind loses track and wanders. Use this book to read a few sentences to focus again on Christ or spiritual thoughts.
Use your daily time to fill yourself with positivity. The people that I know that pray 30-60 minutes every day are very positive thinkers. Why? Because they spend time with God and learn that all things are possible through Christ. Faith and prayer build confidence and a “get it done” attitude. The most pessimistic (and lazy) people are the people who do not pray or do not spend time alone in silence. “Be still and know that I am God.”
Make daily prayer your identity. Repeatedly tell yourself: “I am a person who talks to the Trinity every day. That is who I am and I always do it.” Become what you are.
Question: We can evangelize every soul on earth if we pray and fill ourselves every day with Christ’s resurrected power. How do you best plan your goal of daily mental prayer? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
2015 is over. Do you need help choosing the right goals and resolutions for 2016?
We often “make goals” about losing weight, working out, and making better decisions for ourselves.
As Catholics, we know that the good of our soul is the most important investment that we can make in this life. So how can 2016 become your breakthrough year in your relationship with God? Could 2016 really be the best year of your life so far?
The secret to transforming your life and your year is to cultivate a rich interior life with Christ our Lord and King, but also to avoid the #1 mistake people make in setting goals improperly (in any area of their lives). I’m hosting a live Catholic Webinar (seminar on the web) in which I will share “7 tips” with you on topics such as:
#1 mistake people make in setting goals
how to read the Bible in one year
how to find time for daily Mass
how to structure regular confession on a rotating basis
how the year of Mercy can help you
how to schedule your day so that you have time for daily prayer and spiritual reading
how to lead others to Christ and His Church through you presence and work
If you’ve never been to one of our Catholic Webinars, you’ll be amazed at how encouraged you’ll feel afterward.
