Monday’s Topic: The Tower of the Flock
Experiencing the Peace of Preparing for Nativity – The Tower of the Flock was the place where lambs bound for Jewish temple sacrifices were born. Find out how Jesus and the Holy Family were connected to the Tower of the Flock, how they fulfilled Old Testament prophecy and precedent at the Nativity,  and what it says to us about the gift Jesus made of Himself to the world. 

Tuesday’s Topic: How to Pray Like Mary
A Meditation on the Annunciation – Mary has been called “the mother of listening” and the “mother of prayer.” Explore Mary’s prayer practice through a meditation on the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary as outlined by Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and accept her invitation to pray along with her.  

More on Sonja…

Sonja erupted on the scene with her explosive best-selling book, Unleashed, where she shared how the Holy Spirit is freeing her from her patterns of toxic relationships, self-medicating habits, painful circumstances, and overwhelming desires. All but one of her books has gone on to be best-sellers.

Now she’s everywhere. Her 13-episode Unleashed series, perfect for study groups, aired weekly on CatholicTV, Focus TV, and Christian Associates TV. Soon after, Fearless also aired on Catholic TV stations across the country. Her radio show Bible Study Evangelista launched on Real Life Radio, Breadbox Media, St. Gabriel Radio, the Discerning Hearts® website and is now available on the most popular Catholic app for iPhone and Android, Laudate.

Now, Sonja is thrilled to be part of the CatholicTV family with her own show, Evangelista Bible Study, which aired weekly in September 2019.
