Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message
The most important event in the evangelization of the New World occurred in December 1531. Over the course of four days, the Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to an indigenous convert named Juan Diego. As a result of this encounter, and the image miraculously imprinted on Juan Diego’s tilma (cloak), nine million Native Americans embraced the Catholic faith, and the Americas began its transformation into “the Catholic hemisphere.” Our Lady of Guadalupe’s message of love had replaced the institutionalized violence of the Aztec culture and built a bridge between two worlds. Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message, narrated by famed actor Jim Caviezel, traces the history of this transformative event from the 16th century to the present. Featuring interviews with leading theologians, historians and experts on the scientific inquiries into the miraculous image—this gripping film explores both the inexplicable mysteries behind the image, and the continued relevance of the Guadalupe apparition to the modern world.

Word for Word - Theology of the Body
As far as dating goes, Adam and Eve had it pretty easy… one man, one woman, God’s intentions for them to be together and populate the earth. How could they mess it up? Well, enter the devil and enter temptation. Today, the dating world is perhaps a bit more difficult to navigate than in the Garden of Eden, and for the most part, that’s really the result of some key similarities: enter the devil and enter temptation. In this episode of Word for Word, we talk to Leah Perrault and Brett Salkeld, authors of How Far Can We Go: A Catholic Guide to Sex and Dating for a little help in traversing through the oversexed culture of today with the guidelines of our faith.

Catholic Focus - Create a Climate of Change   
Climate change has been a major topic of debate in the past decades. Today it is one of the world’s greatest challenges. It affects everyone. It affects especially the poor. Inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si, Development and Peace launched their yearly campaign in the fall of 2015 on the theme “Create a Climate of Change”. The encyclical insists that climate change is more than an ecological issue. It is a human issue. This is the organization's main concern. Now, as part of their Share Lent campaign for 2016, they are inviting Canadian Catholics to support communities in developing countries in little or big ways starting right at home.

Rescuing the Little Hearts of Manilla   NEW
In the Philippine capital, misery is often part of the scenery. Touched by insecurity, numerous families find refuge in the slums, while the children live alone out on city sidewalks. Their injuries are profound: abandoned by their parents, sometimes raped by their father or beaten by their mother, numerous kids take shelter under bridges and down in the gutters. In turn, they become victims of drug use and prostitution. Hurt by injustice, solitude and bruised by violence on the streets, these youth don’t have access to proper care or education. In the slums, the situation is hardly any more hopeful. Thousands of families pile into makeshift dwellings amongst the garbage, under sheet metal and sheets riddled with holes. Their environment is unsanitary, their future uncertain. In this despicable yet hopeful context,the Anak-Tnk Foundation, led by Abbot Matthieu Dauchez, takes action day and night amongst these kids, “to get their little hearts back on track.” Through these deeply moving images and poignant testimonies, this documentary plunges us into the misery of the slums and the pavements of Manilla. It’ll leave us glimpsing the joy and hope of these children who offer everything and receive nothing.
