OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS: CONSOLATION FOR OUR TIMES
In the early 1600's, Our Lady appeared to a simple Spanish nun with stunningly accurate predictions about our own days. Revealing the current crisis in the Church, Our Lady also reveals the remedy. Approved by the Church for four centuries, this little-known Marian devotion is spreading rapidly around the world. Matthew is making this powerful PowerPoint presentation about Our Lady of Good Success available to your parish or group without asking an honorarium - it's that important.
WHAT EVERY CATHOLIC NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE TRADITIONAL MASS
Benedict XVI’s landmark motu proprio Summorum Pontificum affirms that, “The Traditional Latin Mass was never abrogated,” that, “the theology of the Mass has not changed,” and that, “What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred.” Compiled from approved sources, this presentation provides a fascinating step-by-step explanation of the signs and symbols of the Traditional Latin Mass from the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar to the Last Gospel.
YOU ARE GIFTED - DISCOVERING YOUR CORE SPIRITUAL STRENGTHS
Along with the gifts of the Spirit that Catholics associate with the Sacrament of Confirmation (Isaiah 11.2-3) and the well-known “charismatic” gifts (1 Corinthians 12), the Bible also reveals seven essential spiritual motivations that are an inherent part of our God-given identities. In this talk, you will learn to “go with your strengths” as you find out how to uncover and maximize your unique spiritual gifts in your own life and relationships.
THIS GOODLY CHALICE – THE TRUE STORY OF THE HOLY GRAIL
What really happened to the cup of Christ after the Last Supper? More fascinating than any medieval fable or modern fiction, this enlightening and well-documented presentation reveals the historical trail of the Holy Grail from the Cenacle to its current location in a Catholic Cathedral. This stunning PowerPoint presentation includes many images of the Grail, an incredible pilgrimage under Blessed John XXIII, and pictures of John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI celebrating the Papal Mass with the Holy Grail.
RECOVERING A MEDIEVAL MENTALITY
That’s medieval! These words are meant to conjure up images of ignorance, intolerance, superstition, and cultural darkness. Yet, under the influence of the Catholic Church, the Middle Ages saw the abolition of slavery, the liberation of women, many inventions still in use today, and astounding intellectual and artistic achievements. This enlightening and entertaining PowerPoint presentation refutes many myths and misconceptions surrounding what should rightly be called the Age of Faith and champions a return to an authentic “Medieval Mentality.”

KATHOLIC KRYPTONITE STRIKES BACK!
In this episode, mild-mannered apologist Matthew Arnold takes on the super-villain team-up of atheists, agnostics, and secular humanists! How do you know there’s a God? If God is all-powerful then why is there so much evil in the world? What happens to people who never heard of Jesus? How can a loving God send people to hell? This pulse-pounding PowerPoint even shows how to demolish the secret weapon of Katholic Kryptonite: “Don’t tell me, I survived twelve years of Catholic school!” Don’t miss it!
