ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY

Alexander knew the minute he woke up with gum in his hair that it was going to be a very bad day. And it was. He was scrunched in the car pool; his first best friend decided Alexander was only his third best friend; and his mother forgot to pack a dessert in his lunch. The dentist found a cavity in his tooth, and he was called a crybaby by his brother who didn't have any cavities. There were Lima beans for dinner, and there was kissing on TV. The bath was too hot, and he got soap in his eyes. Some days are just like that. Children learn that everybody has a bad day once in a while and that the best way of coping with a really rotten day is to find the humor in it -- and to complain a little.

As such, it is the single most revolutionary moral event that has happened on this planet. And, like all deep things in life, the Cross is largely mystery. The Cross reveals God's unconditional love and vulnerability; as a teaching and an invitation to discipleship; God suffers with us. The Cross calls us beyond our selves, our own agenda, our own lie without resentment.

Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC

Episode 1. God's School of Trust. The sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve, has distorted the way we see God. But God hasn't given up on us. In fact, he has tirelessly worked to heal our distorted image of him through his "School of Trust," beginning with his chosen people in the Old Testament. Episode 2. Behold, This Heart. God's School of Trust, which began in the Old Testament, continued through Christ's work in the New Testament. Unfortunately, humanity's distorted image of God has still remained a problem throughout Church history. But God doesn't give up on us. In fact, he brings us back to his "School of Trust" in the revelation of his Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary, the merciful moral theology of St. Alphonsus de Liguori, and the Little Way of St. Therese of Lisieux.

Ina diary which she called "Divine Mercy in My Soul," Saint Faustina recorded all that God told her. During the last four years of her life she wrote the equivalent of 600 printed pages. This was a work of faith. Divine Mercy - No Escape captures the tenderness of Sister Faustina's heart toward her mission as she received the call.

EVANGELIZATION: HOW JESUS MAKES AN EVANGELIST; SACRAMENTS AND THE SPIRIT

Mary Healy

Session 5: How Jesus Makes an Evangelist. The work of evangelization cannot be done without missionary disciples. Just as Christ commissioned the first Apostles and disciples to evangelize the ancient world, so too he commissions us to be missionary disciples in the modern world. But how does Jesus form us into his evangelists? Session 6: Sacraments and the Spirit. To know the Sacraments is to know the power of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God, promised by Christ, came in a mighty way at Pentecost; this same Spirit comes to us today through the Sacraments by which we are born to new life as sons and daughters of God and co-heirs with Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.

This award-winning movie is a beautiful representation of the mystical life of St. Maria Faustina, who became the "Apostle of Divine Mercy". It tells the story of her mystical experiences as a nun living in a convent in Poland in the early 20th century.

He also requested from Sister Faustina that an image be painted and venerated of him and his Divine Mercy, and asked that we pray especially the Chaplet of Mercy. The story and film are based on her own writings from her "Diary", which has become a worldwide best-selling spiritual work.

Then, to the profound sadness of Catholics and non-Catholics alike, Pope John Paul XXIII dies in the summer of 1963, only months after the first session of the Council. He left behind a lasting legacy. But what would now become of the Council inspired by his genius of the heart?

GUADALUPE: A LIVING IMAGE, UNA IMAGEN VIVA

December 1531, Mexico. The Virgin Mary appears to Juan Diego, a humble Indian peasant, but at first, no one believes him. On her request the Indian peasant wraps some Castilian roses in his "tilma," which had mysteriously bloomed on the barren rock at his feet. He is given an audience with his Bishop to tell his amazing story, and when he meets the Bishop he opens his cloak to a miraculous scene: the image of the Virgin is impressed upon it. The image is extraordinarily real. Centuries later, the results of scientific analysis are amazing. In the Virgin's eyes the 13 figures who witnessed the miracle are visible. The stars on her cloak are positioned exactly as they were on the day of the miracle. The painting technique used is unknown. The color are vibrant and intact; the cloth itself, uncorrupted by time.And that's not all: an extraordinary discovery reveals the Spanish origin (from Extremadura, Spain) of the name Guadalupe and it's incredible connection with the Evangelist Saint Lucas.

PIUS X11

Based on Vatican documents and personal testimonies used for the beatification of Pope Pius XII, this epic film stars acclaimed actore James Cromwell in a powerful movie about the great, often hidden struggle waged by the Pope and many others with him to save the Jews from the Nazis during WWII. After the Nazi's take over Rome in 1943, Hitler's plan to kidnap the Pope is revealed as the Nazi's make an all-out attempt to silence the one authority figure in Italy standing strong against them. Everything comes together with great intensity in this dramatic story that retraces histroy from the documents and the testimonies of witnesses that was not fully known until now. Hitler and the Pope - on one side the man who catapulted the whole world into war and, on the other, the man who, more than anyy other, fought for peace. Despite all his efforts, Pius XII is not able to prevent some of the horrors that take place in Rome when over a thousand victims are deported to Auschwitz. But histroy testifies that over 10,000 Jews were saved, hidden in churches and convents in Rome - more saved than in any other occupied city. Even among the Nazi officers were those who opposed such savagery and, thus, under the Roman sky, both the saved and the lost, the victims and the executioners, shout the Pope's cry with their lives; Nothins is lost with peace.

PRAYER

The community of faith searches for meaning in their lives, and they use the Gospels to help them find that meaning.

Don Kimball asks the young people to take a fresh look at prayer. In the discussions and interactions on parties, the teenagers reveal their ideas about talking to God and about listening to God.

PRAYER

Finding Intimacy with God

Tim Gray

Does prayer ever seem like a one-sided conversation? Though prayer is essential to a thriving faith, we often feel as if we're talking to ourselves. Or worse, like we're talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive? Now, the mystery of prayer is made clear through the engaging teaching and artistry of the Augustine Institute's LECTIO series. Renowned speaker Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the Church's tradition of lectio divina to show you the simple steps for making prayer a conversation of love and intimacy with God. Essential and accessible, this new LECTIO series is ideal for personal faith formation and small group study.

PRAYER: GUIGO'S LADDER

Tim Gray

Session 1 - Prayer. Prayer is one of the most basic elements of a life of faith, but it isn't always easy to do. Though we're taught that prayer is a "conversation," we often feel as if it is completely one-sided. In this first session, Dr. Gray shows how the solution to the problem of prayer can be found in the Scriptures. Session 2 - Guigo's Ladder. Prayer may not always be easy, but we sometimes make it more difficult than it needs to be. In this session, Dr. Gray demonstrates how, like climbing the rungs on a ladder, following a simple order of prayer carries us from the care of this world to intimate conversation with God.

God's Divine Life Within Us. One of the most profound aspects of the Catholic faith is that Christ sent his Spirit to dwell in the hearts of the baptized. Christ's Spirit within us conforms us ever more to Christ, so that we can say with St. Paul, "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. Episode 8: Why Do I Need the Church? The Mystery of the Catholic Church. Some people say, "I'm spiritual, but not religious" or "I like Jesus, but don't need a Church." Yet, one can't fully love the King and reject his Kingdom. Jesus didn't save us as isolated individuals. He calls us to enter the communion of the Church.

THE NUN

This award-winning documentary tells the story of Marta, a young Catholic woman in Sweden and her counter-cultural choice to become a cloistered Carmelite nun and live her life for God alone. Documentary filmmaker Maud Nycander follows Marta and her family for ten years to tell the story of her vocation. The Carmelite convent made a unique exception to its strict regulations by allowing the filmmaker to meet with and interview Marta both before and after her five year postulant period. The Carmelite convent in Glumslov in southern Sweden is normally closed to outsiders. Marta comes from a large Catholic family of nine children who live on a farm in Sweden. She had a very happy life with many friends in school, but felt the call to leave all behind for the challenging life of a cloistered contemplative Carmelite nun. This film explores that radical decision and follows Marta and her family as she becomes a Carmelite. Marta gives her own insights as to why she made this challenging decision to give up the possibility of marriage and a family for the life of a cloistered nun. We also meet Marta's family: her supportive father and her mother, first please with Marta's choice but later struck by a great, unexpected sadness; Helena, her closest sister, who has also considered joining a convent; big brother Samuel, a doubter who lives a Bohemian life in Paris; and little brother Emmanuel, to whom Marta was practically a mother.

They started out as average, unexceptional men of their time: fishermen, farmers, local magistrates. But their dedication to a prophetic Jewish preacher in the backwaters of the Roman Empire transformed them into revolutionaries and, in the process, changed the world itself in ways that would reverberate across time for two thousand years. Now, discover the extraordinary untold stories of the men chosen by Jesus to bring God's plan to the world. Among them are Peter, who denied Christ three times but later became a "Rock"; James and John, the fiery tempered "sons of thunder"; Matthew, the tax collector later murdered by cannibals; Simon the Zealot, the anti-Roman fanatic eventually "cut to pieces" preaching in Spain; and Judas Iscariot, whose betrayal would be paid for with silver and suicide. From their early fear and discouragement at the shock of the Crucifixion, to the final acceptance of the resurrection and their epic mission to spread the Gospel through the known world, it's an inspiring, astonishing story of the little known men who became The Twelve Apostles.

To counter this distorted view, the Church affirms chastity, a virtue that expressed trains, and frees men to love in a noble way - to love like Christ. In this study, Jason teaches why only the chaste man is truly capable of love and how to live out chastity in daily life. To cap off the study, Jason provides a 10-point game plan that will get your teens started on the road to living a pure life.

TRUE STRENGTH: THE HEART OF A MAN

Chris Stefanick

The Heart of a Man:What does it take to be a real man? Popular culture doesn't offer very many good examples. The sources of inspiration found there can be powerfully attractive to men; business moguls, star athletes, and fashionable entertainers are held up as sucessful men to be imitated. After all, these guys are a big deal.God calls men to be something more than a big deal. He calls them to greatness. In this study, Chris teaches about the four marks of a man of greatness, saints who were soldiers, the virtues of knighthood, and how to gain real spiritual freedom.

WHO AM I TO JUDGE?

Edward Sri

How do we talk about morality in a world that no longer believes in truth? When we're bombarded with messages of "Be tolerant!" and "Don't judge!" many people feel afraid to say anything is right or wrong. In this 8-part study program, Edward Sri uses engaging stories and the wisdom of the saints to unpack the Catholic moral worldview, and he equips us to engage relativism, appealing to both the head and the heart. Learn how Catholic morality is all about love, how making a judgment is not judging a person's soul, how to share the truth with compassion, and how, in the words of Pope Francis, "relativism wounds people" and is the spiritual poverty of our times."
