In the Light of the Gospels
God is regularly reaching out to us. Are we too busy to notice? Lent is a good time to slow down and look at our selves in the light of the Gospels. Father Tom Weston takes us on a journey through this Lenten season, discussing spiritual practices to make this a deeper and more meaningful experience to more fully connect with God. Fr. Tom talks about the mystery of the Trinity. He shares with us what it means to celebrate and receive the Eucharist as a healing Sacrament. And he discusses the life and resurrection of Jesus. In these beautiful and meaningful talks, we are reminded that we are all invited to the banquet, and Fr. Tom guides us to more fully respond to the invitation. (3/03)

This insightful retreat focuses on the central observance of Christianity: the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Living In The Church Community!
How do we determine what is right for ourselves and for humanity when so many voices (both inside and outside the Church) seem to disagree? How do we develop and educate a conscience? Father Tom puts some perspective on this crucial issue, with a grand historical survey of a church which has grown, changed, and adapted through the centuries, culminating in the vision of Vatican II. He illustrates his commentary with wonderful stories about people who take the spiritual life seriously. These are drawn from literature, Scripture, and the daily news. He speaks of conscience, self-discovery and self acceptance, and how we can walk in the footsteps of Jesus. (8/96)
