|Are You Eager To Love?||Inspiration||Adult||Richard Rohr||2014||CD Lectures||89 min||
In this short talk, Richard Rohr offers an overview of his book, Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi. He introduces us to the humble and joyful man who was more radical prophet than garden icon. Francis words and lifestyle imitate Jesus simplicity, compassion, inclusivity, and embodied love. The essential Gospel teaching, "remain in love," was Francis core motivation and pursuit, and he knew that could best be done by staying close to the edge and the supposed bottom of society, which was of course not the bottom at all.
Fr. Richard Rohr challenges us with important questions: What does "an alternative orthodoxy" look like? Are you eager to love? If so, what are you waiting for?
This talk was presented via webcast in July 2014.
2 CDs, approximately 89 minutes.

|Conversion: Following the Call of Christ||Inspiration||Youth & Adult||Father Robert Barron||2015||CD||6 20 min. segments||
In the CD, Father Robert Barron illuminates six Biblical stories of conversion, demonstrating how six ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through Him. The common theme in each story is the turning of all one's attention and energy toward an ever deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In his characteristically energetic style, Fr. Barron explains how conversion is not so much a one time event, but a life-long process. "Jesus Christ calls us in thousands of different ways to follow Him, as we strive on the path for spiritual excellence," explains Fr. Barron.
"The struggle of Christian life is the struggle of conversion, directed toward holiness and eternal life to which the Lord never ceases to call us."

|Responding to Jesus' Deeper Invitation||Spiritual Life||Adult||Ron Rolheiser||2006||CD||
Outlines four essentials for a deep spiritual life. First, like the good but sad, rich young man we have to give our entire selves to the Lord. Secondly, we have to sustain and appreciate a high level of tension in our life as we deal with our basic humanity and our membership in the Church. Third, we have to go beyond our feelings and thoughts about faith and demonstrate it with our actions and our presence in the midst of God's people. Finally, we need to hear from the voice of God that we are loved and forgiven.
By doing this we will avoid being the good, but sad, rich young man and be like the often confused and frightened apostles who nevertheless followed the Lord to the end of their lives because he gave them water that quenched their deepest thirst and they were convinced he was the only, Way, Truth and Life.

|Spiral of Violence: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil||Spiritual Growth||Youth & Adults||Richard Rohr, OFM||
Fr. Richard tries to open doors of understanding regarding the traditionally labeled sources of evil: the world, the flesh, and the devil. Evil needs to appear in the disguise of being something good, moral, and righteous, which allows us to do evil actions without having guilt feelings or self-doubt.
If we don't recognize and stop evil in "the world" (that is, systemic evil) it will bubble up with great force throught he spiral of violence into personal actions of evil. Fr. Richard offers this discussion as a tool for discerning evil on all levels, and making appropriate responses before we are caught up in an uncontrollable spiral.
