    • Reclaiming Feminism : The Church’s Traditions And Teachings On The Dignity


      This course is a member of the Catholic Courses Electives category. Electives are exciting and timely topics covered popular speakers. Electives contain four video or audio lectures that are produced to the same high-quality standards you know and expect from Catholic Courses.

      We’ve all heard about the war on women, and most of us have been told that the Catholic Church is one of the main institutional oppressors of women. But it isn’t true. There is indeed a war on women, but the Catholic Church stands firmly on the side of women against oppression!

      The world has sold women a bill of goods. When it comes to abortion, birth control, or sex outside of marriage, women are told these actions or lifestyles are necessary for their true freedom. This so-called freedom, however, has been narrowly defined by and limited to sexuality, and brings with it a host of physical, emotional and spiritual consequences.

      In this elective, Teresa Tomeo takes a closer look at these freedoms and relates how medical science, sociological studies, and surveys performed by major secular institutions all show the truth of Catholic teaching concerning the fallout of the sexual revolution touted by radical feminists.

      Compare for yourself what the culture says about the Church and women to what the Church really teaches about women. (It is after all, the Catholic Church who upholds the teaching that a woman, Mary the Mother of God, has been given the title Queen of Heaven.) Among the Church documents referred to in this elective are:

      Humanae Vitae by Pope Paul VI
      Mulieris Dignitatem by Pope St. John Paul II
      Papal Letter to Women by Pope St. John Paul II
      Evangelium Vitae by Pope St. John Paul II
      Women in the Early Church by Pope Benedict XVI

      All the documents are hidden gems of truth and support the equality and dignity of women – and all of them are written by the men who govern the Catholic Church!

      Finally, Teresa Tomeo will help you understand the Scriptures in a new way in terms of Jesus’ interactions with women. You’ll be able to appreciate his desire for women to embrace their true dignity and identity as daughters of the King of Kings.

      Get the real story about women and the Catholic Church – Teresa Tomeo presents the facts, fictions, and timeless truths about the love of Christ and his Church for all women.

    • Modern Media : Facing The Dangers Opportunities And Responsibilities


      This course is a member of the Catholic Courses Electives category. Electives are exciting and timely topics covered popular speakers. Electives contain four video or audio lectures that are produced to the same high-quality standards you know and expect from Catholic Courses.

      Did you know that children consume up to 53 hours of media a week? Adults consume anywhere from 40 to 44 hours a week – as much or more than a full-time job! But so many of us feel overwhelmed by the onslaught of information.

      We might ask any of these questions:

      * What can we do to manage the flow of information better?
      * How do we protect ourselves and our families, and still enjoy healthy media usage?
      * What can we do to stand up against media that does more harm than good?

      After all, most of us know that what we see, read, and hear directly affects how we behave. And we know that the violence, sexual content, and bias of the media are a constant threat to a good Christian life. Yet we can’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. Learning to control the media in our lives, and even use it for good, is absolutely vital to protecting our children and our own integrity.

      In this elective, popular speaker and author Teresa Tomeo highlights the powerful influence of media messages in all our lives. Many Catholics are not aware of the extensive and instructive teaching the Church has to offer about modern technology and media, especially to families with young children. Teresa gives you proactive and timely tools, including a step-by-step plan to begin managing that media influence wisely.

      Most modern popes have had plenty to say about media usage, media influence, and media and the family. Find out what the Church teaches through the works of:

      * Pope Paul VI
      * Blessed John Paul II
      * Pope Benedict XVI

      Learn about easy-to-read Church documents on the subject including Vatican II’s Inter Mirifica, Bl. John Paul II’s Rapid Development, and numerous World Communications Day statements from all these popes.

      The Church calls on us to manage the media wisely and to engage the culture through the mass media as an effective means of evangelization. We can all be part of the Great Communication Commission as part of the New Evangelization and use the media to spread the Gospel throughout the world.

    • Total Truth : Liberating Christianity From Its Cultural Captivity (Unabridged)


      Is God a public figure?

      Does Christianity have a legitimate role to play in the public realm of politics, business, law, and education?
      Or are secularists right?

      When they relegate religion to the strictly private realm of faith and feelings?

      In Total Truth, Nancy Pearcey offers a razor-sharp analysis of the split between public and private, fact and feelings. She reveals the strategies of secularist gatekeepers who use this division to banish biblical principles from the cultural mainstream, stripping Christianity of its power to challenge and redeem the whole of culture.

      How can we overcome this divide? Unify our fragmented lives? Recover authentic spirituality? With compelling examples from the struggles of real people, Pearcey shows how to liberate Christianity from its cultural captivity. She walks readers through practical, hands-on steps for developing a full-orbed Christian worldview. Finally, she makes a passionate case that Christianity is not just religious truth but truth about total reality. It is total truth.
