Join us in Phoenix this November for the Southwest Bible Conference. This year’s theme is Unlocking the Treasure: Discipleship on the Road to Emmaus. Don’t miss this unique chance to study Scripture from the heart of the Church with Scott Hahn and John Bergsma, two renowned leaders in Catholic Scripture study. Learn to encounter Christ in Scripture and accept the challenge of following him in discipleship.
Is Catholic moral teaching one big “No?”
Many people think so.

They think of her, in effect, as the Fun Police, as someone who’s there to make sure nobody enjoys themselves too much.
All throughout the day we are surrounded by words. We talk with friends at school, we write text messages to friends elsewhere, we listen to the radio in the car, we watch television at home, we read books at night. Words help us share our thoughts, feelings, and desires with others; they help us understand the thoughts, feelings, and desires of others as well. Scientists estimate that the average person speaks about ten to fifteen thousand words per day. That’s enough to fill fifty books per year!
