Dr. D'Ambrosio - Holy Land Pilgrimage

 

   

 

Where is that in the Bible?!

Assumption of Mary

August 15th is the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. Many have questions about what the doctrine of the Assumption is and why Catholics believe it. This is not a new belief – Saint John Damascene wrote about it in the 8th century. Pope Pius XII declared it as Dogma in the 20th – and Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio in his article, explains it in the language of the 21st. Celebrate this greatest of all Marian Feasts by visiting the Crossroads Initiative and deepening your understanding of Mary’s “Passover” from this life to heavenly glory.

Want Faith to Move Mountains?

Faith to Move Mountains

What is faith? In this Sunday’s gospel, Jesus heals the daughter of the Canaanite woman because her faith was so great. He rebuked the disciples because their faith was too little –

So exactly how much faith do you need to Move Mountains?

If there any mountains in your life that need to be moved, you’ve GOT to read this one!


Do YOU Have Faith to CLIMB the Mountains??

Mount of Transfiguration

The response to the Pilgrimage to the Holy Land has been wonderful! Whole families are planning on joining Dr. D’Ambrosio on this one in a lifetime trip! Time is quickly running out, but not nearly as fast as space! So if you’d like to sail on the Sea of Galilee (you can try walking on it if you like), get transfigured on Mt. Tabor, or hear the Sermon on the Mount on the mountain of the Beatitudes, please call today or go online to reserve your place! There are other tours available to the Holy Land, of course – but none of them offer Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio as your personal tour guide!

Marcellino’s background as a Historical Theologian will provide incredible insight into the Bible and the Holy Land! Remember this isn’t just a tour; this is a Pilgrimage, a Vacation and a journey into the Bible! This Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is December 27, 2014 – January 6, 2015.

When the Church was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers

 When the Church was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers A society characterized by loss of respect for life, violence, exotic religious cults, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, and even pedophilia. Sound familiar? This was the world of the early Church Fathers. In this engrossing book, Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio brings out the colorful personalities of these dynamic Christian leaders and makes their rich teaching accessible, enjoyable, and relevant to the challenges we face every day.

The Fathers of the Church succeeded in bringing a pagan society to Christ. If we pay attention to what they taught, we will succeed in doing the same for our own increasingly de-Christianized society.
