Meet Your Spiritual Father - Book

Praise for Meet Your Spiritual Father

"Isidore of Isolanis, a pious Dominican of the 16th century, prophesied that the sound of victory will be heard in the Church when the faithful recognize the sanctity of St. Joseph. With down-to-earth practical wisdom and sublime insights, Mark Miravalle leads the battle cry, lifting the veil that has shrouded this glorious patriarch for centuries, revealing the treasures and benefits of having an intimate relationship with the virginal father of the Son of God. Those who read Meet Your Spiritual Fatherwill find priceless treasures not only in this easy-to-read book but also in having St. Joseph as their spiritual father."

New Talks Released



Eric Mahl grew up in the small town of Monroeville, Ohio where he was a standout athlete. He earned a scholarship to play division one football at Kent State University and, in 2005, was signed by the Cleveland Browns. After leaving the NFL, he spent three years working in the world, where he continued his intensive focus on discerning his vocation. After this period of discernment, he sold or gave away all his belongings so as to fully give himself to the Lord and live out the message of Divine Mercy. 

His journey eventually lead him to the shrine of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and Fr. Michael Gaitley. Eric now lives, works, and prays in service with Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy.

This talk was recorded at a Catholic Athletes for Christ retreat for Professional Athletes.

David Calavitta has worked in Catholic Youth ministry for the past 13yrs, serving as a youth minister in several parishes, as well as a missionary with NET Ministries. In this heart-felt talk given at a Steubenville Youth Conference, David reflects upon the all-important and fundamental truth that we were created out of love by a God who continually seeks to draw us into a personal relationship with Him.

In this talk, Jeff Cavins shares how he has come to see that Jesus wants us to surrender every bit of our own comfort to follow Him. There are many fans of Jesus in this world, but we are called to be His disciples. 

As a young adult, Jeff left the Catholic Church and became a Protestant Pastor for 12 years. After returning to the Catholic Church, he became a nationally known speaker who has helped thousands come to a clearer understanding of Scripture and our Faith.

Do you struggle with living your faith at work? Is holiness possible? Does being ethical help or hurt the profitability of a business? These are just some of the questions Matthew Kelly answers in this presentation which was made to the Catholic Business and Ethics Conference.

El Dr. Brant Pitre utiliza las escrituras hebreas y la tradicion Judia Para explicar las acciones de Jesus en la Ultima Cena y tambien para proporcionarnos una vista nueva del corazon de la pratica Catolica - la Eucaristia. Al llevarnos de regreso a las raices Judias de neustra fe, el Dr. Pitre nos da un lente poderoso por el cual podemos ver nuevamente el pan de la presencia, el mana, la Ultima Cena, y finalmente el significado de la Eucarista.

English Translation: Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist
Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist. By taking us back to the Jewish roots of our faith, Dr. Pitre gives us a powerful lens through which to see anew the bread of the presence, the manna, the Last Supper, and ultimately the meaning of the Eucharist.

Book Review~Joan of Arc by Mark Twain

Stuart Dunn reviews Catholic materials at his blog: Stuart's Study.
http://stuartsstudy.blogspot.com/2015/01/joan-of-arc-and-maid-of-orleans.html

Here is his recent review of Joan of Arc, by Mark Twain, published by Lighthouse Catholic Media.

If you had to pick Mark Twain's greatest work what would it be? Tom Sawyer? Huckleberry Finn? The Prince and the Pauper? All of these are all great novels, and you could make a strong case for any of them. However, if you asked Mark Twain what his greatest work was, he would tell you it was Joan of Arc. In fact, he spent twelve years in France researching the subject and went through several drafts and iterations before finally feeling like he had done Joan of Arc justice.

The book itself is told in the format of a novel, which was translated from the memoirs of Louis de Conte (a fictional characterization of Joan of Arc's page, Louis de Contes). There are three sections to this novel. Book I begins with the birth of the narrator, Louis de Conte. It also talks about Joan's early life in Domremy and how she was different from other children. She came off as wise and learned, despite being an illiterate peasant. Book II largely deals with Joan's military exploits. It takes place when Joan is 17 and is seeking to gain control of the King's army. This is unheard of not only because she is a girl, but because she is so young. In this section we see the opposition she faced, not just on the battlefield but from her own country. The king's counselors were evil men and always in the king's ear, trying to make Joan look foolish or get her killed. Book III deals with her imprisonment, trial, and eventual martyrdom. Here we see people take advantage of her illiteracy by getting her to sign a false confession. They also forbid her from wearing men's clothes, but while in prison, they took her female apparel and replaced it with men, so she would either have to wear nothing or put on the male garb and be branded a lapsed heretic. She chose modesty, knowing that it would ultimately result in her death. There is also a brief summary, which tells the fate of Joan's family, King Charles VII, and several other figures.

I was pleasantly surprised reading this book. Mark Twain is not known for his reverence or piety, but he did a remarkable job keeping this book respectful and enthralling. Lovers of history, saints' lives, or homeschoolers/history teachers will find a great treasure in this book. Lighthouse Catholic Media is currently selling copies for $5 a piece. This is such a great price that you can buy one for you and several for friends.  CLICK HERE to get your copy of Joan of Arc.

Eric Mahl and Julie Musselman
My Take:

I got a chance to meet Eric Mahl when I visited the Divine Mercy Shrine in April 2013. I was really impressed with his testimony and his humble attitude. In this talk, "Being All In," Eric shares his dramatic story of giving everything to Our Lord.

In a world where most everyone is seeking the American Dream and looking for the kind of success that Eric achieved, it is a great reminder that Christ is still calling us. When we say 'yes' with His Grace, we can seek the dreams Christ has for us to serve Him and His Church.

You will really enjoy this talk.

Each miraculous sign has a meaning and that of Guadalupe is to remind us that through the Eucharist, the Word Incarnate that entered Marys body, enters anew into each one of us. In this presentation of the story of Guadalupe is revealed an amazing perspective of the relationship between Mary, the Apocalypse and the Holy Eucharist. CLICK HERE to order the CD.
