Thirst for Truth - Battle for Souls


We are proud that EWTN recently aired a parish mission given by Fr. Bill Casey and Fr. Wade Menezes of the Fathers of Mercy. This parish mission highlights the need for each one of us to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ through God’s Divine Mercy, so that we can be strengthened to persevere in the spiritual battle against the world, the flesh, and the devil.

Special thanks to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Kokomo, IN, for allowing the Fathers of Mercy and EWTN to utilize their parish to tape this series.

The titles of the talks are: Peace of Soul in the Divine Mercy (Casey); By Which We Wound or Sever Our Relationship with God (Menezes); The Devil: Father of Lies and Murderer from the Beginning (Casey); Know Thyself: The Importance of Growing in Self-Knowledge (Menezes); Nothing is Impossible with God (Casey); Conversion: God Calling Us to Divine Intimacy (Menezes).

We are now selling DVD copies* through the Fathers of Mercy DVD Catalog

  1. Since it is being run during the morning I have to miss it because I have to work. Will it be rerun again?
    Please make it available in DVD’s.
    Thank you

  2. I have to tell you, that although I have not seen all episodes the one today really touched me, Showing me exactly how satan would lie and the consequences after those lies, I plan on watching the remaining episodes and wish to thank you all.. May GOD bless you all always and Merry Christmas

  3. Absolutely stunning and so grateful for EWTN and our wonderful Priests who are seeking to help us in our faith and understanding of our faith – I purchased two sets of this 6 hr series…THANK YOU & Merry Christmas!!!!

  4. I have been searching and thirsting for this knowledge, and I have been glued to the TV set listening and praying to the profound wisdom contained in this series. I consider this conference a blessing and a gift. My only wish is that there were more. Thank you for your beautiful, transformative and life-changing work.

  5. What powerful series! Fr. Casey preached a powerful message concerning the devil. Will there b a DVD of the series or will it re-run on EWTN?

    1. Mark,
      As of right now, we are not sure if there will be a re-running of the series. We will be sure to update the website with any information. As well, we think that EWTN will make available soon the DVD copies through their Religious Catalogue. However, you can purchase the CD copies of the “Thirst for Truth/Battle for Souls” through our Audio Catalog. Thanks for your support, and may God bless you with a very blessed Christmas.

  6. Absolutely outstanding! Father Casey talking about Prayer yesterday and Father Menezes talking about conversion today were simply inspired by God! Thanks from the bottom of my heart and a Merry, Merry Christmas!

  7. This was a wonderful “Gift” from you and EWTN showing it, there are no words to express the love, peace and mercy that over came me each day . The Father s of Mercy have given us a great gift, may our Lord continue to Bless you all and thank you for this. God Bless you and have a most Blessed Christmas.

  8. I have just watched the EWTN programme where Fr Wade Menezes delivers his awe-inspiring and extremely powerful talk on the search for self knowlege as an integral element of spiritual growth. I have long held the view that Fr Menezes’ is one of the most accomplished Catholic speakers on issues affecting the faith and those seeking a closer relationship with God in their lives. He always gets to the heart of the matter and has surpassed himself with this parish mission talk on seeking The Light in the midst of our darkness. I shall return to this presentation again such was its profound impact on me.

  9. I have listened to two of the CDs so far…I cannot praise them enough! If everyone heard these talks, we would win the battle against secularism and relativism!

  10. I cannot thank you enough fathers Casey and Menezes, your sermons were the best I have seen in a long time, both of you are a gift from God, what a zeal and passion you put in trying to gain souls for God! I hope EWTN would have these series replay sometime for the people that didn’t have the opportunity to see it. It’s well worth buying the DVD when available. May God bless our Church with many more dedicated and holy Priests : )

    1. Steve: The DVD of the mission “Thirst for Truth: Battle for Souls” is available for ordering now, and will be shipped to the UK if paid for in full (overseas postage paid). We do not have a distributor in the UK; I don’t know if EWTN has a distributor there or not.

      1. Thank you for your reply however I have now seen several episodes on EWTN. As ex British military I love the straight forward no nonsense approach to the preaching. God Bless America and you guys too.

  11. Very wonderful teaching by Fr. Menezes on ‘Sin’ and it’s effects. Was shown very late last night – 11pm EST. That time is difficult also. Thank you for the un-watered down, unapologetic and straightforward teaching and instruction. Bravo and Praise to Our Lord Jesus Christ. And thank you to you all and Fr. Menezes. I love listening to you teach!

  12. I would like to be able to read Fr. Wade’s talks. Is their a printed form I can get on “Thirst for Truth- Battle for Souls” ?

  13. I was just listening to Fr. Wade’s talk on Know thyself on EWTN. It was very inspiring and I wish I could listen to it again. is it possible in any way or can you suggest a book written by him.
