Questions Of The Soul: What Is Prayer? (HS, ADULT)
Here are just a few of the questions about prayer which will be answered in this warm, engaging, sometimes humorous, and always thought-provoking video: If God knows everything, why pray? If God is beyond all, how dare mere creatures speak to God? If someone says "pray for me," does it make any difference if we do or not? If we pray for physical healing, and it happens, who did it: God or the doctor? What is the "best way" to pray? Is it ever all right not to praise God in prayer? What does it mean to say "prayer is the moment we shift our line of vision?" If you don't pray, watch this video if you want inspiration to start or to start again. If you already pray, watch this video and gain new insights.

The Passion of Christ (ADULT)
Ron Rolheiser/Through Scripture and examples from life, Fr. Rolheiser gives new understanding and encouragement in how we can give our lives to the world and to also give our death to the world.

The Gospel writers want us to understand Jesus the lover, who undergoes moral and emotional sufferings without resentment or bitterness. Fr. Rolheiser explains that God's strength comes when we are exhausted and open to being transformed. A profound and moving reflection in 2 parts with a live audience.
