"You mean sixty-one seconds. You said sixty-one minutes but you mean a little over one minute."

"No," I said. "He didn't have a pulse for over an hour."

This amazing, true story, full of weakness and strength, heartbreak and celebration, hope and joy, teaches us that through our faith in Christ and the prayers of the great cloud of witnesses, miracles are possible.

In our busy lives we often get stuck in the same old routine. Often times when we think of our "journey of faith" we think of someone's conversion story, or hear about someone going to the Holy Land, Fatima, or famous shrines of France such as Lourdes. We often forget there are so many different ways and places and opportunities that allow us to delve deep into our faith and the roots of our Catholic heritage. Learning more about the history of where we came from, we can appreciate what we have and desire more.

Teresa and her guest, John Hale, President of Corporate Travel will uncover beauties of our faith available through local, national, and international experiences that can bring us to a special encounter with Our Lord. They will share creative, new, and exciting ways to embrace your faith such as attending a saint festival, concert, biblical play, or pilgrimage.

There will also be time to answer any questions you may have.

Join us as author Derek Rotty talks about his book and the eight beloved Gospel passages that reveal something essential about the life of Christ and what he can teach us about conversion.

This book is perfect for individual or group study and each chapter includes reflection questions.

That sounds great, but we all know that it's not easy.
