The Catholic Church is the great bastion of miracles. We have numerous miracles testifying to the authenticity of the Catholic Faith:

  1. The stigmata: Dozens of saints have had the visible marks of Christ on their body.
  2. Eucharistic miracles: We have dozens of miracles, some of which have been scientifically examined, testifying to the truth that the Eucharistic Host is actually Christ's flesh and blood.
  3. Incorruptible Saints: We also have over 150 incorruptible saints whose incorruptibly defies all of science.
  4. Miracles Worked Through the Saints: The blood of St. Januarius frequently liquefies. Throughout the centuries thousands of reported miracles have occurred at the tombs of the saints. St. Benedict and St. Dominic, among others, by the power of God resurrected people from the dead. St. Padre Pio, St. Gregory the Wonderworker, St. Charbel, and countless others have performed miracles. The Miracles of the Saints are numerous enough to fill volumes of books. Over 400 saints have raised the dead to life.
  5. The Miracles Performed through the Blessed Virgin Mary: Over 70 people are been healed of incurable diseases in the waters of Lourdes. The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima was witnessed by over 70,000 people. And we have many miracles of the Rosary including the Miracle at Hiroshima. Many other such Rosary miracles have occurred. The Miraculous Medal and the Brown Scapular continue to work miracles up to this day unexplained by science.

In this course, we explore these and many more miracles to understand how we can know that the Catholic Faith is the divinely established religion. We also study the Church's teaching on what a miracle is and what a miracle is not. We will also carefully examine both the Old and New Testaments for what they teach us about miracles. This course goes beyond intellectually arguments and reasoning, which is often the focus of Apologetics and shows God's works among us, some of which have even occurred in our own lifetimes.

Eschatology is the study of the end of life, the end of time, and the Final Coming of Christ. In Eschatology, Christian Theology focuses primarily on the “Four Last Things” that comprise its study. They are Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell. In addition to these areas, we will explore as part of the five-part series on these topics, Purgatory, the place of temporary purification after death for souls that die in the state of grace (i.e. are destined for Heaven) but are no yet perfect and able to enter Heaven.

Catholics are bound to observe the laws of the Church, in addition to the Ten Commandments. Many of these additional laws have been long established and observed by the Faithful for centuries. All together, the Deposit of Faith, that which a Catholic must believe in order to truly be a Catholic, requires Catholics to observe the Precepts of the Church. The Precepts of the Church are not all inclusive in terms of the rules for living a Catholic life. There are other laws that Catholics are bound to observe that are not listed in the Precepts of the Church. The Precepts of the Church are the six principal ones, that is, the six ones with which Catholics should ordinary be concerned, since they ordinarily occur in a person’s life. Through this course we will study the precepts in depth to understand the need for the precepts, what the precepts require of us, and why they are so important.

When you think of the Councils of the Church, you probably imagine a group of Cardinals and Bishops quietly discussing obtuse theological doctrines which have no practical implications. Perhaps a loud cough is heard once in a while but, on the whole, it is a staid affair. Actually, the Councils were anything but impractical or quiet. There were loud disagreements and accusations of heresy. You will read about wars, riots, murders, and shipwrecks as well as anti-popes and the suppression of the Templars. The Council members cared deeply about the religious and social problems of their day, arguing for months, sometimes years, in order to find a solution. Each lesson of this course contains a discussion of why the Council was called and what happened at the Council, as well as Biblical references and prayers. We will hear from many saints as well as a few characters not so holy. Each Council has its own exciting story but each has a unifying theme in the Church’s unending mission to guide souls to God. Departing from our standard of sharing Catechism References on the 4th part of each lesson, that part will be devoted to reviewing and studying the documents and canons of the Council in question.

What is an apologetic? Simply put, an apologetic is an argument meant to persuade. Trial lawyers use apologetics every day to persuade juries and judges to adopt their point of view. But we, too, are exposed to apologetics everyday as we listen to advertising touting one product over another, or as we listen to our lawn care provider explain why we should continue using him to mow our lawn and trim our shrubs instead of a cheaper company down the street. No high theology to be found here! To the contrary, this course arms Catholics, both young and old, with easy to understand basics necessary to defend their Catholic Faith and to comfortably share this faith with others. If you are just beginning your walk as a newly committed Catholic or if you are a Cradle Catholic to whom the basic ways of the faith have become foggy, this course is for you.

This course is a survey of Christian Philosophy. Even that first sentence might tempt you to ask a whole host of questions… good! Believe it or not, you are already acting like a philosopher. Let's clear the air. The biggest problem most people have with the study of philosophy is that it's not "practical" (so they say). 'I can't pay my bills with philosophy,' 'I can't support my family by studying Aristotle,' 'The world needs scientists, mathematicians, and engineers… not philosophers."

These are all examples of an attitude that has saturated in a culture obsessed with doing—obsessed with the practical, the useful, and the pragmatic. 'Thou savourest not the things that are of God but the things that are of men,' says Our Lord (Mt 16:23).

The truth is, even though philosophy does deal with the theoretical, it is also supremely practical. Do we not think that every person has a reason behind every single thing that they do? The teacher runs a classroom based on their philosophy of education, the doctor treats a patient based on their philosophy of healthcare, the CEO runs a company based on their philosophy of business, the husband and wife treat each other based on their philosophy of marriage.

Since Philosophy is a foundation for Theology, this course is intended for all adults who seriously want to form their minds as students disposed to receive Divine Knowledge.

Pneumatology is the study of the Holy Ghost, the third person of the Blessed Trinity. In this course, we study the Holy Ghost and answer several key questions using both Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition as our source. Who is the Holy Ghost? How do we receive the Holy Ghost? What role does the Holy Ghost play in our lives, in the life of the Church, in the Sacraments, or in our path to Heaven? Is the Holy Ghost real? How can we receive the graces and fruits of the Holy Ghost? What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Ghost? We will answer these and many more questions in this unique course.
