Christ promised his burden would be light. If you're more familiar with the burden end of that statement, it's time to experience the lightness. In this provocative, refreshingly original presentation, Fr. Michael and Sherry explore the meaning and method of Christian happiness. Drawing upon the teachings of C.S. Lewis, John Paul II, St. Thomas Aquinas, Venerable John Henry Newman, and others.
Four hours - 3 CD's - Digitally mastered for clarity and quality. Includes notes and extensive outline all in an attractive bookshelf package.
How can we transmit a living, personal Catholic faith to future generations? By coming to know Jesus Christ, and following him as his disciples. There are immense challenges facing the Church today.
Follow author Sherry Weddell through the steps that will help Catholics make the conscious choice to follow Jesus as his disciples, transforming parish life and ultimately the life of the whole Church.
The Catherine of Siena Institute is an affiliated ministry of the Western Dominican Province dedicated to equipping parishes for the evangelization and formation of lay Catholics for the sake of their mission in the world.
At the Catherine of Siena Institute, we provide innovative programs, resources, and leadership training that are faithful to Church teaching and will enable your parish to become a dynamic center of lay discipleship, formation, and mission.
Our web site also offers resources to assist individuals who are seeking to discern their personal missions and to help clergy and other pastoral leaders who want to see dynamic Catholic apostles emerge in their parishes.

"Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus by Sherry Weddell is the most important book I've read this year. That is not exaggeration or hyperbole, but a testament to the research, experience, and insight Weddell brings to the question of evangelization and catechesis in the Church today. Weddell's book is a synthesis of every deep conversation about catechesis and evangelization I've had with my local and national colleagues for the past four years."
Europe arises naturally as an efficient two-dimensional summary of genetic variation in Europeans. The results emphasize that when mapping the genetic basis of a disease phenotype, spurious associations can arise if genetic structure is not properly accounted for. Human genetic diversity in southern Europe is higher than in other regions of the continent. This difference has been attributed to postglacial expansions, the demic diffusion of agriculture from the Near East, and gene flow from Africa. Using SNP data from 2,099 individuals in 43 populations, we show that estimates of recent shared ancestry between Europe and Africa are substantially increased when gene flow from North Africans, rather than Sub-Saharan Africans, is considered. The gradient of North African ancestry accounts for previous observations of low levels of sharing with Sub-Saharan Africa and is independent of recent gene flow from the Near East.

I was just thinking the other day about some of the best weekends in my life were spent at http://www.jerseycanada.com/jerseyatlantic/fnt/ultramer.php Franciscan University conferences where Fr. John was often a speaker. Had this sin not occurred this man would probably be still bringing people to Jesus. Aldosterone synthase (or 18-hydroxylase) is a steroid hydroxylase cytochrome P450 oxidase enzyme involved in the generation of aldosterone. The CYP11B2 gene provides instructions for making aldosterone synthase. This gene encodes a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. The cytochrome P450 proteins are monooxygenases that catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and synthesis of cholesterol, steroids, and other lipids. This protein is primarily expressed in the zona glomerulosa of the adrenal cortex..
