The Crossroads Initiative Online Library


The Crossroads Initiative LibraryHere you will find writings from the Church's past and her present, from the Early Church Fathers to Pope John Paul II, from Marcellino D'Ambrosio to other contemporary authors such as Christopher West.


The subjects covered are extensive, from the Year of the Eucharist to the Theology of the Body, from prayer to how to deal with daily trials, from marriage and sexuality to parenting and Christian family life!  


Many of these readings are brief, practical and therefore perfect to use for a bit of daily nourishment and inspiration for you personally, or to share with your family, RCIA group, catechism class, or small adult faith formation group.


Check back with us frequently as we are posting new writings daily! Please feel free to download and print anything that you find here.  We simply ask that you not alter the writings and that you leave The Crossroads Initiative contact information so that anyone you pass it on to will be able to find their way back here for more resources to enrich their lives and the lives of those they love.  Thank you!


You may find articles by author, by topic - as well as view our "current topics"!


If there is a specific article that is not yet posted in a PDF version, please e-mail us and let us know!

I Believe - The Heart of Catholic Faith

by: Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Ph.D.


I Believe - The Heart of the Catholic Faith, The Nicence Creed, Catholic FaithWhen people ask you to explain your faith, where do you start?

In this dynamic, four-part series, Dr. D'Ambrosio explains how the very heart of the Christian faith is all about intimate, personal relationships.  Who God is -- a community of love between three divine persons, and the powerful, loving way that each of those Divine Persons breaks into our world to change and transform our lives.  This series explains how faith is not irrational but the most reasonable response possible to God's saving deeds in history.


This series follows the outline of the Nicene Creed, but don't be mistaken--far from a stodgy or academic presentation of tenets and beliefs, this series, full of

enlightening metaphors and colorful anecdotes, leads all who listen to it not only to clearer understanding of their faith, but a deeper love relationship with God the Father, Son, and Spirit.  "I Believe," available in either audio or video format, is perfect either for individual study, or use by RCIA or study groups, by teens or adults.
