Debut Broadcast: Farewell to Pope Benedict XI and what it means to “put on the armor of God.”
“Carmelite Conversations” Host Frances Harry welcomes guest, Deacon Russell Baldwin back to the program to continue our conversation on “Divine Mercy and the Carmelites.” We focused on the 5 Stages of the Mercy of God with examples from our Carmelite Saints followed by deeper insights on “Divine Mercy” by St. Therese of Lisieux, the little flower. For her, confidence and trust in God’s divine and merciful love are foundational to her whole relationship with God and is evident in her practice of the “Little Way of Spiritual Childhood.”
This program discusses the reality of suffering in the spiritual life. More importantly, St Therese of Lisieux helps us understand the great value of accepting our everyday trials and sufferings, and how to transform them into a deeper experience of Love. This is the science of the saints, to use everything in our life, good and bad, to deepen or love.
This program focuses on St Therese of Lisieux. We explore the major events of her childhood, the events that led to her entry into Carmel and the significant contribution she made in her short life. We focus primarily on her most famous work, The Story of a Soul. From this work we will explore the teaching of Spiritual Childhood. We seek to understand our relationship to the Father through the eyes of this beloved French Carmelite. We also explore her teaching on prayer and suffering. Finally, we explore Therese’s mission to the rest of the Church and see how the life of Carmel can be so beneficial to those who are looking for spiritual assistance in their journey to the Lord.
In this program, Francesca Franchina discusses the life of St. John Bosco.
