"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control," St. Paul wrote to the Galatians. "If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit" (Galatians 5:22–23, 25). Those words are just as relevant and powerful for you today as they were for the Galatians. Join author Deanna Bartalini to discuss her book Invite the Holy Spirit into Your Life: Growing in Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control
. Deanna will share how you can learn the life-changing power of the fruits of the Holy Spirit by exploring each fruit through real-life stories, Scripture, and Church teachings.
You'll have an opportunity to ask Deanna questions and advice for using Invite the Holy Spirit into Your Life
for individual or group study.

Encountering Mother Teresa Presenter: Linda Schaefer
Monday, August 26, 2019
2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time
Join us on August 26--Mother Teresa's birthday--as Linda Schaefer, author of Encountering Mother Teresa, talks about her new book and her experiences researching, photographing, and writing it.
Linda began her career as a journalist for CNN in 1985 but found she couldn’t abandon her first love — photography. She met and photographed Mother Teresa for the first time on June 15, 1995, while on freelance assignment for The Georgia Bulletin, the newspaper for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
Less than two months later, Linda found herself in Calcutta, where she had the rare opportunity to document the work of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity. Linda took thousands of photographs, and through this experience she began to feel that this work might be her calling in life.
Linda attended both the beatification and the canonization of Mother Teresa, and she has returned to Calcutta twice in her quest to learn as much as possible about the saint and the work of the Missionaries of Charity. Through these experiences, Linda met and interviewed six of Mother Teresa’s closest friends, confidants, and coworkers in the vineyard of Christ. These interviews became the groundwork for Encountering Mother Teresa.
This fascinating book includes more than 200 rare and never-before-seen photos of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity. Spanning decades, these photos provide a personal look at Mother Teresa and her enduring legacy.
