Overview
"I dropped to my knees and prayed: 'Lord, I give up. Whatever you want me to do, you're the boss now.'" -Chris Godfrey, New York Giants offensive lineman, Super Bowl XXI Champion team "During the start of my second prison sentence, I was in solitary confinement, utterly alone and still claiming to myself that I was anti-Catholic." -Joseph Pearce, author, The Quest for Shakespeare "My whole adult life had been premised on the claim that I was in charge of everything. That's what made infertility a deeply spiritual experience." -Jennifer Roback Morse, research fellow, Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty "I was in a lot of pain. Pornography was the cause, but I didn't know how to break free of its grip." -Kenneth Henderson, founder, True Knights International Apostolate God isn't content to remain at a distance from us. As these stories reveal, God is on the street, at our side, ready to step in, hoping to be invited. For Moments of Grace, Catholic radio host Al Kresta conducted interviews with well-known Catholics, asking them to identify a particular event when God broke through to them.

These moving, personal stories will encourage you to recognize that God will always be there for you as well.

Reviews - What do customers think about Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Well-known Catholics?

Sensitizing Us to Religious Discoveries of Our Fellows  Mar 5, 2009
Interconnections among the story tellers and between radio show host Al Kresta and his subjects bring to mind the six-degrees-of-separation theory. These 26 interviews turn the spotlight on a group of Catholics heavily involved in current media, organizations, and ministries devoted to evangelization and apologetics. Common media ties include EWTN, Catholic Answers, Our Sunday Visitor, and Ave Maria Radio. A number of the interviewees belong to, direct, or founded organizations, among them Roe No More Ministry, Opus Dei, Renewal Ministries, The Bible Christian Society, Coming Home Network International, and the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. In addition to their media and organizational work, a significant number of those featured present programs and retreats and develop materials on apologetics such as the Surprised by Truth series. Several also mention ties to the Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Most of the five women and twenty-one men interviewed speak to Kresta about conversion. Many who were "born" Catholic had drifted or turned abruptly away from the Church, usually in early adulthood, and later returned. Others came to Catholicism from Protestantism or no faith at all. In the question-and-answer format, it is clear that Kresta has a personal relationship with those whose spiritual stories make up "Moments of Grace." The interviews are exercises in listening to the message "brought to us by our own existence and sensitizing us to the religious discoveries of our fellows," Kresta writes.
