Four Attitudes To Find God in Prayer

How may of us wonder if God knows who we are? Or does He hear my prayer?

During this episode of Living Catholicism, Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox will share 4 indispensable attitudes given to us by St. Anthony of Padua:

  • Open one’s heart confidently to God
  • Speak affectionately with him
  • Present him your needs
  • Praise him and thank him

Not only will this program answer the questions posed, but you will also discover how loved, valued, and necessary each of us is to God.

St Joseph of Nazareth

St. Joseph – A Lesson In Trust

Why is placing our trust in God so crucial? How can we learn to trust as St. Joseph did?

Join Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox as they examine how the example of St. Joseph can help you trust God with all aspects of your life, especially in times of crisis or when faced with adversity.

Message of Hope:
We should, indeed, honor St. Joseph, since the Son of God Himself was graciously pleased to honor him by calling him father. The Holy Scriptures speak of him as the father of Jesus. If the King of Kings was pleased to raise Joseph to so high a dignity, it is right and obligatory on our part to strive to honor him as much as we can.”
— St. Alphonsus Liguori

Mary, The Most Powerful Woman

When you think about powerful women, who first comes to your mind?

In December 2015, National Geographic magazine called Mary, Mother of God, the most powerful woman in the world.

Join Deacon Tom and Mary Jane Fox as they discuss the impact Mary has had on the world since the beginning of Christianity.

During this program we will look at Mary’s role as Mediatrix and intercessor, how often she is mentioned in the Bible, and why Catholics revere her.

Message of Hope:
Love our Lady. And she will obtain abundant grace to help you conquer in your daily struggle.  – St. Josemaria Escriva

Doubting Thomas

We can learn a lot from the Apostle Thomas, also known as ‘Doubting Thomas.’ Join Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox for an in-depth look at this encounter between the Risen Lord and Thomas in the Upper Room. During this discussion about the Gospel of John 20: 24-29 you will receive insight on:

  • How God knows us where we are
  • How every doubt can lead to an outcome brighter than any uncertainty
  • How the words of Jesus to Thomas speak to the true meaning of mature faith and give us the courage to persevere

Message of Hope
Do you really believe that it was by chance that this chosen disciple was absent, then came and heard, heard and doubted, doubted and touched, touched and believed? It was not by chance but in God’s providence. The disbelief of Thomas has done more for our faith than the faith of the other disciples. As he touches Christ and is won over to belief, every doubt is cast aside and our faith is strengthened.    – Pope St. Gregory the Great, Doctor of the Church
