A Wonderful Day

I spent all day at a workshop given by the Biblical School today.  

The wonderful Dr. Peter Kreeft presented on "The Last Four Things," Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell.  

Since I have been thinking an awful lot about death lately, this was a wonderful thing for me.  

If you are not familiar with Dr. Kreeft, please avail yourself of his books, he is a prolific author.  If you ever have a chance to see him, do so. 

I went from there to mass this evening.  I am absolutely wiped out from a day of thoughts so deep, but so encouraging.

  2. Sounds like a great workshop. I hope death is a long way away for me, but one should always be prepared. I hope it's a long way away for you too Mary-C.

    Oh I have heard of Peter Kreeft. I even downloaded one of his lectures. "Seven Reasons to be a Catholic." He's convert.

    Joyce - You can find a few of his lectures to download for $2 at Lighthouse Catholic Media. Here:

    I see he's got quite a few books on Amazon. Is there a particular book you might recommend Mary?

  6. Sorry, Manny, I failed to answer your question. I absolutely LOVE the book "Three Philosophies of Life."

  7. Oh is Dr. Kreeft's sight wonderful. It will take me a decade to go through all those free audio. Thanks a bunch Mary-C, for that and the book suggestion. Now if only Scott Hahn will give away his lectures free. Any idea? ;)

  8. Ummmm, Manny, for some reason, I don't see that happening soon.

    I am glad you are enjoying the Dr. Kreeft's site. He is really a gifted speaker as well as writer. With a great wit too!
