God, The Universe, And Everything
Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? Everyone wants answers to these questions. Some people have found their answers in God; others are still on the path of discovery. And some have grown discouraged—and stopped looking. In this intellectually stimulating yet entertaining presentation Matt shares his own story of being shaken out of the agnostic apathy he suffered as a young adult. Challenged to find reasons to believe that life has meaning—no matter how messy or senseless or full of pain it may get—his long search finally led him to belief in the God of Christianity, and in his Church.
How to Win an Argument Without Losing a Soul
If we as Catholics are to heed the instruction of our first pope, which is to “always be ready to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you” (1 Pet. 3:15), we must have a basic understanding of argumentation. We must know what constitutes a strong argument and what constitutes a weak one. Furthermore, we must understand how to detect common fallacies. In this interactive and intellectually stimulating talk, Matt explains these things and lays out five indispensable tips for conversing with non-Catholics.
My Mother is a Virgin
“Why do Catholics pay such special attention to Mary?”, “On what basis to Catholics claim that Mary was immaculately conceived or assumed into heaven?”, “How do I begin to develop a devotion to Mary?” These and many other sincere questions are asked by Catholics and non-Catholics alike. In this presentation Matt explains from the pages of Scripture and the writings of the Church Fathers the importance of Marian devotion in a compelling way which is as informative as it is humorous.
