Read this book and be God's instrument of salvation!” - Father Larry Richards

Pope Francis has inaugurated an extraordinary Jubilee Year during which he exhorts the faithful to reflect upon and make fruitful the message of Divine Mercy. This message, while popularized by the writings of Saint Faustina, is not a new teaching, but rather lies at the very heart of the gospel. In this inspiring series, renowned lay evangelist, Hector Molina walks us through the Scriptures, the teachings of the Church, and the witness of Saint Faustina in order to discover:
- The Message of Mercy: What is Divine Mercy?
- The Means of Mercy: What means has Christ given us to access His inexhaustible mercy?
- The Mission of Mercy: How can we fulfill our mission of becoming channels of God's Mercy?

In Casting Nets: Grow Your Faith by Sharing Your Faith, Tony and Chris reveal their proven and tested principles for evangelization, called "The Seven Pillars of Effective Evangelization," modeled after the way of Christ. In their plan, compelling evangelization is: prayerful, invitational, hospitable, inspirational, sacramental, formational, and "missionful."
Casting Nets was written for individuals and parishes searching for an effective program to advance catechesis in local communities in a simple straightforward way. A chapter is devoted to each of the seven pillars, and includes "the principle" describing the pillar, followed by "the practice" on moving from concept to successful action.
In the first talk we explore the theme of Mercy in light of the message of Divine Mercy given to us by our Lord through St. Faustina. Why do we need such abundant mercy? (Disc 1). Baptism, Confession and the Holy Eucharist are the Sacraments in which we receive the Divine Mercy (Disc 2). As baptized Christians, we are duty bound to evangelize as Christ did, with the eyes of Mercy (Disc 3). All of these topics are addressed in this powerful three part CD set.
This series on the Theological Virtue of Faith and the New Evangelization will share how to grow and share the great gift of Faith we have been given. Tony and Chris discuss the virtue of Faith, how can we deepen our personal faith, and what we can do in the Year of Faith (Disc 1). At the heart of being able to deepening our Faith is the development of our own relationship with Jesus Christ (Disc 2). All of this will give us the desire to be apart of the New Evangelization, which is not a program but a way of living and witnessing to the Faith (Disc 3). All of these topics are addressed in this inspiring three part CD set.
This series on evangelization gives the real essentials for effective evangelization. Tony and Chris discuss the moral obligation to evangelize as delivered by Christ and His Church (Disc 1). At the heart of being able to share our Faith is the development of our own relationship with Jesus Christ (Disc 2). However there are methods that can help and hurt the spreading of the Gospel they we should be aware of as Christians (Disc 3). All of these topics are addressed in this exciting three part CD set.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church offers us a magnificent “symphony of faith,” demonstrating the harmonious and holistic nature of Catholic faith and practice. In this 10 part series Chris Stewart introduces the history of catechisms and the purpose and origins of this Catechism. Each of its four ‘pillars’ (Creed, Sacraments, Life in Christ, and Prayer) are described, and a general orientation to accessing the Catechism for personal and teaching applications is presented. Pope John Paul II says the Catechism “is offered to every individual who asks us to give an account of the hope that is in us and who wants to know what the Catholic Church believes.”
Tony and Chris discuss the three pillars of the spiritual life in the light of the New Evangelization. Just as with any relationship communication serves as the key, well prayer is the cornerstone of our relationship with Christ (Disc 1). God has created us for communion with Him therefore we become fully human by giving ourselves away which we practice in almsgiving (Disc 2). This gift of self can be perfected with true acts of fasting (Disc 3). Prayer, almsgiving, and fasting have a transforming affect not just on us but also on those we encounter.

This series for men challenges them to examine the Fourth Commandment and how it applies to their life. Tony and Chris discuss a man's relationship to God as Father, how that relates to them as earthly fathers and the importance of forgiveness (Disc 1). To be a man is to protect all women by devotion to the Blessed Mother and all women in our lives (Disc 2). However, we cannot be the men God is calling us to be without the accountability and friendship of other men of God (Disc 3). All of these topics are addressed in this inspiring three part CD set.
This series for men examines what it means to live as a man of God in light of Sacred Scripture. Tony and Chris examine some of the great examples in the Old Testament of what it means to be a faithful, humble, and courageous man (Disc 1). The New Testament offers examples of great men and not so great. Can we learn from them to be the men that God is calling us to be (Disc 2). Finally, we can learn from St. Joseph, the caretaker of the Holy Family, how to become better Men of the Bible (Disc 3). All of these topics are addressed in this inspiring three part CD set.
This series focuses on challenging men to be the kind of men that can change the world through living the Theological Virtues in a dynamic way. Tony and Chris discuss how the virtue of Faith allows men to become truly the fullness of what a man is called to be (Disc 1). It is difficult to stand tall in today's world but Hope lift us up and can change everything (Disc 2). Love is what men are created for; to receive love, to give love, and to protect love (Disc 3).
