Moira M. Noonan
“Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee, Lord.” These words of St. Augustine reflect the deep seated human desire for spiritual things. It is as if we are interiorly programmed to seek God and the things of God. Unfortunately, because of our fallen human nature, many people are looking for the divine in all the wrong places. Some get involved in the occult and its dark practices. Others latch onto the New Age movement and its promise of enlightenment. In 1993, after a series of powerful conversion experiences, Ms. Noonan returned to the Catholic Church, and is now a popular speaker explaining the deeper meaning and influences of the New Age movement. She recently published her first book: Ransomed from Darkness: The New Age, Christian Faith, and the Battle for Souls.
During this day of recollection you will learn what the Catholic Church teaches regarding the occult and the New Age movement.
What is the real message of the New Age Movement and why people are so attracted to it.
How to identify occult practices that have crept into our culture and are being publicly promoted and much more. Read about her new book, "Ransomed From Darkness" here.
