Inspired by the Matthew 11:28 verse upon which she originally based a retreat, Susan Conroy created a new series called "Coming to Christ." Susan and EWTN recorded a10 part series on the coast of Maine and it's initial 5 episodes aired June 9-13 2014, twice a day, 3:00AM and 6:30PM, again that October and subsequently June 22-26, 2015. If you missed it, all 10 episodes are available from EWTN on two 2-DVD sets. Amazon currently has just the first 5. Now that final 5 episodes aired on EWTN, all filmed on location in Maine featuring some of Susan's fellow young adult Maine residents, a second DVD set is now available. You can also order a signed copy of the DVDs and book from Susan.

Susan also wrote a companion book Coming to Christ: Resting In His Love (see cover image above) which is now available from the publisher, Our Sunday Visitor, as well as from Amazon in paperback and Kindle form (see below for other sources).

Here's a blog about the series from June 14, 2013 entitled "Come To Me, All You Who Are Weary And Find Life Burdensome, And I Will Give You Rest" which is the verse Matthew 11:28 that inspired the series. Susan also appeared on "EWTN Live" with Fr. Mitch on June 4, 2014 at 8PM.

Sneak Peek of  Title Graphic
Here's a screen capture the editors sent us of the title graphic.

In the Introduction to the book Coming to Christ: Resting In His Love, Susan shared the following insight:

"This book is unique in that it blossomed from a television series! It is filled with reflections on how to come to Our Lord Jesus and find refreshment and peace. It contains the very basics of our Faith which are vital to us all, because to find Jesus Christ is to find salvation, since 'no one comes to the Father except through Jesus.'"

My father used to say 'remember God, and He will remember you.' Throughout these pages, we will be sharing ways to keep turning to God and re-turning to God.

This material was first presented and filmed outdoors in the state of Maine, overlooking the open Atlantic Ocean and overlooking the mountains. We were surrounded by God’s own glorious creation – because natural beauty draws us closer to Christ and raises our minds and hearts to Him. Our Lord Jesus liked to be near the sea – and so did the Apostles. They also liked to climb mountains to pray to Our Heavenly Father. In imitation of Christ, we went to the mountains and to the sea!
Chapter 1 Where do we find Jesus Christ in our lives today? (series episode filmed at Portland Headlight)
Chapter 2 Coming to Christ at Holy Mass (series episode filmed at Two Lights State Park in front of the Lobster Shack)
Chapter 3 Adoration and Prayer (series episode filmed at Willard Beach)
Chapter 4 Confession (series episode filmed in Benedicta, Maine with Mt. Katahdin as backdrop)
Chapter 5 JOY (series episode also filmed in Benedicta)
Pondering and sharing this material made me love Our Savior Jesus even more. My hope is that it will do the same for every reader who takes these words to heart.
