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.

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

St Peter's Basilica

St. Peter’s Basilica – Yours

During this program, your spiritual guides Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox will address three key points:

  • Why is St. Peter Basilica considered one of the most important churches in Roman Catholicism? (chair of St. Peter)
  • Does this Basilica have the Chair of St. Peter?
  • What is its significance for me today?  (Chair of the Pope – authority of the Church, which comes from Christ)

Message of Hope
And only where God is seen does life truly begin.  Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. … There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ.  There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.  – Pope Benedict XVI

Our Weakness, His Strength

Join Deacon Tom & Mary Jane Fox as they look at examples from Scripture where God chose & equipped ordinary men and women to accomplish extraordinary things for the people of God. Learn more about how we can all realize our call to produce fruit for the kingdom of God.

Message of Hope
What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.  – St. Pope John Paul II
