The subjects covered are extensive, from the Year of the Eucharist to the Theology of the Body, from prayer to how to deal with daily trials, from marriage and sexuality to parenting and Christian family life!
Many of these readings are brief, practical and therefore perfect to use for a bit of daily nourishment and inspiration for you personally, or to share with your family, RCIA group, catechism class, or small adult faith formation group.

I Believe - The Heart of Catholic Faith
by: Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Ph.D.
When people ask you to explain your faith, where do you start?
In this dynamic, four-part series, Dr. D'Ambrosio explains how the very heart of the Christian faith is all about intimate, personal relationships. Who God is -- a community of love between three divine persons, and the powerful, loving way that each of those Divine Persons breaks into our world to change and transform our lives. This series explains how faith is not irrational but the most reasonable response possible to God's saving deeds in history.
This series follows the outline of the Nicene Creed, but don't be mistaken--far from a stodgy or academic presentation of tenets and beliefs, this series, full of
enlightening metaphors and colorful anecdotes, leads all who listen to it not only to clearer understanding of their faith, but a deeper love relationship with God the Father, Son, and Spirit. "I Believe," available in either audio or video format, is perfect either for individual study, or use by RCIA or study groups, by teens or adults.
