I just finished listening to your Good Friday talk on the Pain of the Crucifixion. I was simply moved to tears. I will carry those tears of pain and joy to the Altar each time I go to Communion. Thank you, Steve, and God Bless for bringing the Sacrifice to us with such deep understanding!

Powerful Catholics talks like this one have changed countless lives. But, obviously, that can only happen when people hear them!

Given the deluge of digital content scrolling past our faces every day, we believe that physical media still has a critical role to play in sharing messages of truth, beauty, and goodness.

Sharing a CD has a unique staying power that digital media simply lacks. You have to actually look a person in the eyes and ask them to listen to it. That face-to-face conversation is much harder to forget than the thousands of links and posts we see on the internet every day.

That's why we started our 20 Talks monthly evangelization subscription. Members receive 20 copies of one amazing Catholic talk that they won’t soon forget. We’ve spent about four decades curating our library of Catholic media, and these talks are the cream of the crop.

We also know that a lot of people don’t have CD players anymore. Rest assured, every CD comes with a link to free digital access. And in the end, it doesn't matter how they listen to it, it only matters that they are being asked to listen to it—by someone who truly wills their good.

Try it for a month and see how simple it can be to facilitate real encounters with Christ.
