This week's Lighthouse Catholic CD - Life
Is Worth Living by Venerable Fulton Sheen
Archbishop Fulton Sheen was one of the best-known and bestloved Catholic orators of the twentieth century, reaching
millions of Christians and non-Christians alike through his
immensely popular and Emmy award-winning television
show Life is Worth Living. This presentation is made up of
three separate talks given by Archbishop Sheen on his
television program Life is Worth Living, which aired throughout
the 1950's. These are the three talks included: The Anxiety of
Life; Is Christianity Easy? and The Problem of Love.

WHAT’S ON THE PASTORS MIND
Many are gearing up for the super bowl, parties and food
and all the commercials. But Pope Francis is gearing up for
February 2, the feast of the presentation of the Lord. It is
also the celebration of the world day for consecrated life.
The Holy Father has called for a year of consecrated life.
The focus is on religious and those who have taken vows. It
is a good time to reflect on when was the last time we have
been able to have a religious vocation come from our
parish? It is a good reminder for us to pray for sisters and
nuns, monks and brothers. Do we encourage our young
people to look at such vocations? Jesus was presented in
the temple to fulfill the Jewish law and His Father's will. Are
we helping those called to religious life fulfill their vocation
and our Father's will for them? The super bowl is a good
time. Encouraging our young people to follow God's will is a
better use of our time, that we can do all year long and not
for just one day of celebration.
Stress in Your Marriage? – Retrouvaille is a program for
married couples that feel bored, disillusioned, frustrated, or
angry in their marriage. Some experience coldness. Others
experience conflict in their relationship. Most don’t know
how to change the situation or even communicate with their
spouse about it. This program has helped 10’s of 1000’s of
couples experiencing difficulties in their marriage. For
confidential information about, or to register for, the program
beginning the Weekend of February 13-15, 2015, call 1877-922-HOPE (4673), or visit the web site at
www.HelpOurMarriage.com. The Weekend is held at the
St. Anthony Spirituality Center in Marathon, Wisconsin
PRO-LIFE LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE IN MADISON
Wisconsin Right to Life is sponsoring a Pro-Life Legislative
