As Christians, we believe that the journey of life does not end at death.
Rather, we understand life to be a pilgrimage that extends beyond death to God. Admittedly, our journeys can be weary because of the difficulties we encounter. Some struggles come from without and others from within, the result of the false choices we call sin.
Yet there is hope, as veteran preacher and author Fr. John Jay Hughes teaches. Christian pilgrims have three main sources of nourishment along the way: Holy Scripture, the Church’s Sacraments, and the example and support of those who journey with them.
These talks offer vivid examples of all three. They are the harvest of a lifetime’s reflection by outstanding Catholic author and preacher Fr. John Jay Hughes to bring faith alive and make it relevant for people like you today.
Under the direction of Fr. Hughes, you can deal fruitfully with big questions such as: What awaits us beyond death? Who are the “false gods” we are still worshipping today? How do we cope with loneliness or with life-changing crises? How can the saints help?
Such huge questions as these may at first leave you overwhelmed, but Fr. Hughes provides a sure path to deeper understanding. According to widely respected Catholic journalist John L. Allen, Fr. Hughes “cuts to the core of things, to the restless need of the human heart for a love that lasts. Anyone who wishes to take that journey would do well to have Hughes as a guide.”

About Your Presenter
Fr. John Jay Hughes has been a Catholic priest since 1968. A Church historian, he received his doctorate of theology from the University of Münster, where he studied under Cardinal Josef Ratzinger, the future Pope Benedict XVI. He is a widely experienced preacher and the presenter of our popular programs, A Journey through the Parables, Thirty Remarkable Saints, and Seeing Him Who Is Invisible.
A preacher for almost sixty years, Fr. Hughes’s message is firmly grounded in the Gospel. He details his conversion to the Catholic Church and faith journey in his acclaimed autobiography, No Ordinary Fool: A Testimony to Grace (Tate Publishing, 2008). Eugene Kennedy calls it “the most profound memoir of a spiritual search since Thomas Merton's Seven Storey Mountain.” Most Reverend John R. Quinn, Archbishop Emeritus of San Francisco, said, "John Jay Hughes is among the most distinguished and able writers in the English-speaking world. . . . The moving story of his conversion, his Harvard education, and association as a student with Professor Joseph Ratzinger, should indeed find great interest in a wide audience.”
