The selection of available CDs changes, so check it regularly. If you would like to help offset the cost of these fabulous CDs, there is a donation box attached to the display; suggested donation is $3. Lighthouse Catholic Media's Website has additional materials.

Apologetics / Catholic Beliefs

Apologetics refers to the sincere study of the faith so that one is full prepared to explain and defend our beliefs to those who question it. Going to official Church documents at the Vatican website is often a good place to start.

In The Bible in a Year podcast, Fr. Mike Schmitz walks you through the entire Bible in 365 episodes, providing commentary, reflection, and prayer along the way.

Unlike any other Bible podcast, Ascension’s Bible in a Year podcast follows a reading plan inspired by The Great Adventure Bible Timeline, a ground-breaking approach to understanding salvation history developed by renowned Catholic Bible scholar Jeff Cavins. For each period in the timeline, Jeff will join Fr. Mike for a special episode that will help you understand the context of each reading.

With this podcast, you won’t just read the Bible in a year … you’ll finally understand how all the pieces of the Bible fit together to tell an amazing story that continues in your life today!
