We just can’t say it enough: we are at war.
The enemy of our souls is a strategic, cunning adversary—but we have mighty weapons at our disposal capable of putting him to flight.
One of these lethal weapons is the sacrament of Penance. Are we making good use of this powerhouse of sacramental grace? Do we appreciate its primacy of place in the spiritual life?
With those questions in mind, I am SO excited to announce our next webinar: “The Sacrament of Confession and Spiritual Warfare” with Dr. Joseph Hollcraft and Fr. Dennis McManus on Sunday, May 2 at 5pm Central.
Many of you know Dr. Hollcraft as a favorite professor from our Graduate Program and as the Director of our High Calling Program. His most recent book, “Unleashing the Power of Intercessory Prayer” has been a catalyst for a deeper conversation in the Church around the power of petitionary prayer.
Fr. Dennis McManus has recently joined our High Calling program, bringing his 45 years of experience teaching in seminary. Among Fr. McManus’s many appointments, Pope John Paul II personally named him as consultor and theologian to the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments on which he has served since 2001. Fr. McManus has written widely on liturgical and ecumenical topics, but specialized in the application of translation theory to the Roman Rite and in the development of the Rites of Exorcism. We are more than grateful to have him, and if you join these gentlemen next week for the webinar, you will see why—I guarantee it. Fr. McManus is one of the most compelling speakers I’ve ever heard. Be prepared to be blown away!
They will cover topics such as:
- The most common ways that demons attack us
- How demons size us up by our sins and our wounds
- How the sacrament of Penance frees us from the dark world
- How the demons slow us down in making a good confession
- What is a “profound” confession?
- What to look for in a great priest confessor
- Mary and her help in the confessional and against the dark world.
…and much more!
