Into His Likeness – Be Transformed as a Disciple of Christ

What does it look like to really follow Jesus? Not just be an enthusiastic Catholic who goes to Mass each week, throws money in the basket, and goes through the motions of faith. But what is happening on the inside? How do I know if I’m really growing in my relationship with God? Am I just a fan of Jesus or a true follower?

No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion

In this study, Catholics discover…

  • The Biblical background to each scene in Christ’s passion.
  • What was Jesus going through at each moment?
  • How did the Old Testament foretell of Christ’s death?
  • Why did Christ die for us? What did it accomplish?
  • What was the meaning behind of the tearing of the temple veil, the crowning with thorns, and other events during Christ’s Passion?

Edward Sri also unpacks commonly misunderstood sayings of Jesus, such as…

  • “Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass?”—Was Jesus thinking of backing out at the last minute?
  • “My God, my God why have you abandoned me?”—Was Jesus really abandoned by the Father on the cross?
  • “You have said so.”—What does that mean?

Who Am I to Judge? – Talking about Morality in a Relativistic World

  • “Morality is just personal opinion.”
  • “What’s true for you isn’t necessarily true for me.”
  • “Don’t impose your morality on me!”

How do we talk about morality in a culture that no longer believes in moral truth? Even many good Catholics feel afraid to say anything is right or wrong anymore. We don’t know what to say, and we’re scared others will think we’re “judgmental” and “intolerant.”

Vibrant Faith in a Secular Age: Today’s Challenges for the Laity & Families

This presentation engages the challenges we, our children and our friends constantly face from the secular culture—challenges that, if not addressed, can choke the life of faith in the people we love.

Walking with Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross

This presentation is for anyone who wants to know Mary better – the real, human Mary of the Bible and the profound interior journey of faith she made throughout her life. We will walk with Mary step-by-step from Nazareth to the Cross and consider how she faced moments of joy and thanksgiving, moments of uncertainty and discernment as well as moments of trial and darkness.

And yet at every critical point she responded with greater trust and surrender in ways that offer many practical insights for our own paths of Christian discipleship today. In this presentation, Dr. Edward Sri will draw on themes from his book, “Walking with Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross” (Image Books) and his video series/adult faith study “Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother” (Ascension Press).

Marriage: The Good, the Messy and the Beautiful

Falling in love is easy. Growing in love with your spouse requires much effort, intentionality and grace.  While there’s a lot of talk about the beauty of marriage, there’s not as much talk about the real. This talk is about the realities of marriage—the real joys and real challenges all couples face—and how God wants to us there, in the joy and messiness of daily married life, to build something beautiful in our marriages. Dr. Sri brings together the rich wisdom of Catholic teaching on marriage and much humor from his own experience to help couples grow in friendship, patience, trust and love.

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass: Understanding What We Say and Do in the Liturgy

Do you ever wish you could get more out of Mass? Discover how all the prayers, symbols, and rituals in the liturgy can come alive for us today once we understand their Biblical roots. From the sign of the cross and the Gloria to the Eucharistic prayers and Holy Communion, join us for a Biblical tour of the Mass and learn the profound meaning of what we are really saying and doing each week as we participate in these sacred mysteries.

Praying The Rosary Like Never Before: Experiencing the Wonder of Heaven and Earth

Drawing on themes from his best-selling Rosary book, The New Rosary in Scripture, Dr. Edward Sri will explore John Paul II’s powerful and very personal reflections on the rosary and the importance this devotion has for Christians today. This presentation will address common questions about the Rosary such as…

  • Why all the repetition?
  • Why is so much attention given to Mary and not to Christ?
  • Where did the Rosary come from?

It also will offer practical tips from John Paul II on how everyone – beginners and avid devotees – can experience more deeply the great spiritual treasures found in this powerful devotion.

Men, Women & the Mystery of Love:

Common Questions, Biblical Answers
How to Explain the Catholic Faith From Scripture

In this session, Dr. Edward Sri tackles some of the most misunderstood teachings of the Catholic Faith. Beginning with an overview of his own journey, Dr. Sri takes us on a Scriptural tour through the Old and New Testaments, presenting the historical and Scriptural foundations for the Church’s teaching on topics such as the Mary, Confession, The Eucharist, the Papacy and the Church as the Kingdom of God on Earth.

How to Read the Bible as Catholics

The Bible is central to our faith as Catholics. But approaching such a large and complex collection of writings that span thousands of years is intimidating for most of us. We need a guide, a compass to set us off on the right course so that our time spent studying the Scriptures is a time spent encountering the living God. Dr. Edward Sri will demonstrate how to read the Bible within the living Tradition of the Catholic Church, and it addresses all the common questions about the Bible including…
