  • Spider Who Saved Christmas

    The Spider That Saved Christmas tells the tale of what happened to the Holy Family on their way to Egypt after receiving the message of the angel. When Joseph, Mary, and Jesus are in danger of being discovered and harmed by Herod’s murderous soldiers, a cave-dwelling spider named Nephila risks her and her children’s safety to help her hallowed visitors.

    Majestically illustrated by artist Randy Gallegos, EWTN host Raymond Arroyo’s moving story sheds new light on a family of Golden Silk Orb Weavers, whose silk is considered the most precious of all and is displayed at Christmastime in the sparkling tinsel that glints from evergreen trees the world over. After reading this book, you’ll always remember Nephila in the twinkling tinsel. Though small and feared, she met divinity and reflected His light as only she could.

    Like each of us … she was there for a reason. Continue Reading Spider Who Saved Christmas

  • 40 Anti Catholic Lies

    $19.95

    By refuting forty common errors about the beliefs of Catholics, this book shows that Catholicism makes more sense than modern media would lead us to believe, not only theologically, but also in its actual teachings about the Bible, other religions, history, science, and society. Addressing forty modern anti-Catholic notions ranging from alleged Mary-worship to the claimed suppression of Galileo, author Gerard Verschuuren here carefully teases apart truths from falsehoods, with results that often prove surprising for both those who damn the Church and those who love Her.

  • Art Of Spiritual Warfare

    Calls for believers to engage in direct battle with Satan fill the pages of the Bible. But few Christians today know how to do so and why it is more important than ever before.

  • Devotional Journey Into The Mass

    $14.95

    If you’re unhappy because the Mass has become for you routine – or even boring and tedious – these pages are for you. They teach you eight simple ways to make your every Mass a joyful time of piety and intense devotion.

    Explaining the spiritual meanings behind the signs and symbols, words and actions of the Mass, author Christopher Carstens teaches you spiritually-enriching ways to enter the church building, make the Sign of the Cross, pray the Opening Prayer, listen to the Readings, prepare your soul at the Offertory, participate in the Eucharistic Prayer, receive Communion, and even respond to the Dismissal.

    Soon – with the help of author Carstens wise suggestions – you will be surprised to find each Eucharistic Celebration a fountain of peace for you, a profound refreshment for your soul.

    Among other things you’ll learn from these pages:

    -The meaning of the sacramental principle: if you don’t understand it, then Mass is almost surely flat for you
    -How each element of the Liturgy has a sacramental quality about it, and can be for you a grace-filled encounter with Jesus
    -How to transform your prayers at Mass into a conversation with God
    -Why silence – both within the liturgy and outside of it – is a necessary element of that conversation with God
    -There’s a proper spiritual way to make the Sign of the Cross (do you know what it is?)
    -How the Creed can be for you the highpoint of the Liturgy of the Word
    -Why, during the collection, you should also explicitly offer Christ your heart
    -The best way in the Mass to participate in Jesus’ saving work: do you know what it is?
    – What you should desire in order to receive the Eucharist most efficaciously (and what that desire presupposes in you)
    -Coming and going through the church doors: what, each time, it should mean for you spiritually

    Plus, at the end of each chapter, a list of action items for the next time you go to Mass, and much, much more to awaken in you the bright spirit of joyful devotion that we are all called to have at Mass. Continue Reading Devotional Journey Into The Mass

    This book is for every woman associated with the military, whether on land, on sea, or in the air and for all those at home who are waiting for their loved one to return or who are living on military bases, or struggling with the myriad of demands connected with military life.

    Catholic military women are very special Soul Sisters. There’s a certain military pride shared amongst them they are in solidarity in a common goal to defend human life, to fight injustice, to protect their country, and support their military husbands, brothers, sons, daughters, cousins, nieces and nephews [or their military family]. They have heroically placed their lives on the line on battlefields, as well as in battling military issues on the home front too.

    Best-selling and award-winning author Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, an honorary lifetime member of the Military Council for Catholic Women (MCCW) shines a light on these gallant, heroic women who carry on with great faith, hope, humility, and love and whose heroism doesn’t remain on the battlefield, but is woven into the very fabric of their lives.

    Traditional and original prayers, as well as teachings and inspiration from Jesus, Mary, and the Saints are woven throughout the entire book to give a powerful shot in the arm and to uplift spirits. This book will surely speak to the hearts of military mothers, wives, and women who are serving or have served in the military. It will also be a source of prayer and inspiration for anyone connected to the military the patriotic, and for anyone who would like to learn more about these courageous military women.

  • Last Hours Of Jesus

    $18.95

    Here for the ordinary reader is an unforgettable moment-by-moment account that brings to vivid life the powerful events that transpired between Jesus’ Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane and His death on the Cross at Golgotha.

    Told accurately and in a manner interesting and intelligible, it actually provides a fuller treatment of the Passion than is found in the Gospels. You see, those Gospels were written for first century readers already familiar with many of the persons, places, parties, and politics that colored events in those long-past days. Not so modern readers, twenty centuries later! Which is why Fr. Ralph Gorman has here crafted for us a single detailed narrative out of the four Gospels, weaving into his narrative relevant Old Testament passages and prophecies, and facts from Jewish and Roman history, laws, beliefs, traditions, and practices, plus helpful first century military, political, geographical, and archaeological information.

    Faithful to the Gospels while drawing on the best commentaries on them in English, Latin, French, German, and Italian, these rich pages provide you a refreshing reading of the Gospels supplemented by reliable archaeological, historical, and theological information about the period, places, and persons involved. Plus, you have the benefit of Fr. Gorman’s keen depictions of the Gospel places based on his three years’ residence there.

    You can read this book straight through, or one chapter a day as spiritual reading before Mass or during Lent. Either way, you’ll come to understand better the malice of the crowds, the dismay and confusion of Christ’s friends, and the speed with which the deadly events unfolded. Most of all, you’ll come to grasp anew the depths of Christ’s love for you, awakening in you greater devotion to Him than ever before. Continue Reading Last Hours Of Jesus

  • Holy Confidence : The Forgotten Path For Growing Closer To God

    $14.95

    Relying heavily on Scripture, Fr. Rogacci reminds us that time and again the Lord insists we be at ease with Him. To this, Fr. Rogacci adds cogent and persuasive reasons why loving familiarity with the
    Lord is the best way to promote both His glory and our own happiness. Continue Reading Holy Confidence : The Forgotten Path For Growing Closer To God

  • Benedict And Francis

    $12.95

    Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis have each approached the papacy in strikingly different ways, yet they share the same fundamental vision of the world and man. In these pages, Cardinal Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, explores the differences and commonalities of these two popes, showing how the challenge for the Church’s hierarchy remains the same, and how these two popes are leading the Church to resist worldly infections and to heal the spiritual diseases of our time.

    He also provides a succinct and fascinating look into the universal ministry of the Church, showing how the popes, as successors to Peter, are the visible head of the pilgrim Church and are tasked with carrying out the pastoral ministry of Christ. Continue Reading Benedict And Francis

  • Total Consecration Through The Mysteries Of The Rosary

    $14.95

    In his 18th century masterpiece, True Devotion to Mary, St. Louis de Montfort tells us that the quickest, easiest, and most efficacious path to Jesus is through the Blessed Virgin Mary. In her 1917 appearances at Fatima, Mary repeatedly urged us to pray the Rosary daily.

    Since Mary is the best path to Jesus and since she herself insists on daily recitation of the Rosary, Fr. Ed Broom has developed this powerful do-it-yourself retreat that culminates in the total consecration to Jesus through Mary by focusing on the Mysteries of the Rosary and the Seven Sorrows of Mary – and all it takes is a few moments each day!

    For years Fr. Ed Broom has transformed lives by leading this five-week retreat in Southern California. Now, for the very first time, that retreat is available in book form for those who cannot attend one of Father’s retreats in person. Here you’ll find the entire retreat program to bring you closer to Our Lady and to Our Lord: Scripture readings keyed to each Rosary decade, Fr. Broom’s succinct meditations on each Mystery, daily prayers, and wise but practical steps to help you gain the most from each meditation as you draw daily closer to your retreat’s culmination in the fifth week: your own Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary.

    Why not spend the next five weeks with Fr. Broom meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary and the words of Scripture? Do so, and you’ll quickly come to appreciate as never before the beautiful prayer that is the Rosary as well as Jesus and Mary, whom you will soon know better and love more.

Phillips’ book, The House of the Virgin Mary, is the comprehensive tale of the Holy House in Nazareth, and its miraculous transport to Loreto, Italy a delightful book that carefully lays out the evidence for the miracle and affords you detailed, convincing answers to those who have challenged it.

McGlynn tells the remarkable story of his time with Sr. Lucia one of three witnesses of Our Lady’s apparition near Fatima as she directed him in his sculpting the famed statue we know as Our Lady of Fatima.

  • Unbelief Its Causes And Cure

    $12.95

    Originally published under title: Why men do not believe, 1869.
    In this classic work praised by Pope Pius IX himself, Fr. Nicolas J. Laforet lays out the spiritual causes of unbelief, and shows the antidotes necessary to remedy each of those failings.
    Noting that unbelief is not a particularly modern phenomenon (after all, many people refused to believe in Jesus even after having witnessed his miracles), Fr. Laforet uncovers the common roots of unbelief as well as the sure remedies that finally bring men and women to have faith in God.
    Fr. Laforet shows that although many think otherwise, unbelief is not merely a matter of the intellect; on the contrary, where unbelief prevails we almost invariably find bad will: souls who have either not seriously considered the claims of Christianity or who simply refuse to admit truths that are evident to anyone who inquires with an open mind.

  • Roman Catacombs : A History Of The Christian City Beneath Pagan Rome

    $14.95

    Enter into the shadows of the Roman catacombs where early Christians attended Mass and hid in fear from Roman soldiers seeking their death for refusing to renounce the Christian Faith.

    You’ll read dramatic acts of faith and courage as Fr. James Spencer Northcote, the world-renowned 19th-century expert on the catacombs, relates the intense belowground life of the catacombs.

    For over three centuries, Christians buried their dead in often elaborate crypts hollowed out for them underground by fossors designated diggers whose status was just below that of deacons and priests.

    With scores of maps and illustrations in these pages, you’ll see that the architecture of many crypts was as elaborate as buildings above-ground, creating under the streets and fields of Rome a second-cityindeed, a Christian city in the very heart of pagan Romegraced with broad underground tunnels and large rooms where assemblies could be held.

  • Elizabeth Of The Trinity

    $14.95

    Available in English for the first time, this short book is a powerful introduction to the spiritual wisdom of one of the Church’s newest saints: Elizabeth of the Trinity.

    There was nothing extraordinary in Elizabeth of the Trinity’s life. There were no ecstasies. She didn’t work miracles. She didn’t communicate heavenly messages through visions or words she heard.

    Instead, she presented a message to modern man through her own life of fidelity, showing us that the true road to contemplative prayer is not an ascent to grasp God, but a descent into the depths of one’s heart.

    She teaches us that only by drawing our souls inwardly can we move toward bold abandonment and achieve immersion in God, thereby connecting our spiritual lives to the eternal praise of the saints in heaven.

    In our noisy culture, Elizabeth of the Trinity reminds us of God’s power to establish in us a profound and peaceful stillness. She reminds us that that the Trinity is our home, and that God has created us in order to be united to Christ.

    In these pages, Sister Giovanna della Croce presents a brief and readable introduction to the teachings of Elizabeth of the Trinity, showing us the truth path to contemplative prayer.

  • Unmasking Mother Teresas Critics

    $14.95

    Mother Teresa’s canonization has brought fresh attention to her critics who malign her for the politicians she knew, for how she handled the enourmous sums of money she raised, and for the quality of care she offered those she served.

    Christopher Hitchens claimed she was less interested in helping the poor than in using them . . . to fuel the expansion of her fundamentalist Roman Catholic beliefs.

    A group of Canadian academics criticized her in their study for her rather dubious way of caring for the sick, her questionable political contacts . . . and her overly dogmatic views regarding abortion, contraception, and divorce.

    Now comes Bill Donohue, the indefatigable President of the Catholic League, who is fighting back.

    In this carefully researched book, Donohue pulls the curtain back on Mother Teresa’s critics, showing that virtually all of them shared an abiding disdain for Catholicism.

    Her critics were militant atheists, Donohue explains, and strongly embraced socialism, viewing Mother Teresa’s work as a deterrent to government-controlled programs.

    In these pages, Donahue responds point-by-point to all of her critics claims, and proves that their attacks on her are motivated almost entirely by her conviction that life begins in the womb.

    Don’t let Mother Teresa’s critics win. Read this book, and be armed with all the evidence you need to put to rest those cruel myths that are being promoted by those who wish to destroy the legacy of one of the Church’s most admired saints. Continue Reading Unmasking Mother Teresas Critics

  • Let There Be No Divisions Among You

    $14.95

    With clear, compelling logic bolstered by countless Scriptural confirmations, Fr. John MacLaughlin here considers the oft-heard claim that it doesn’t matter what Christian denomination you join, so long as you’re sincere.
    Formally known as Indifferentism, this view has in recent centuries taken deep root among Christians. Indeed, indifferentism is the enemy not only of Protestantism and Catholicism, but of Christ Himself, who revealed to His apostles scores of truths about Himself and the way of salvation, never encouraging them to pick and choose among those truths.
    Not only then, argues Fr. MacLaughlin, is one Christian denomination not as good as another; embracing the wrong one can lead a good-hearted soul into utter unbelief, jeopardizing his salvation. Continue Reading Let There Be No Divisions Among You

  • What Catholics Are Free To Believe Or Not

    $12.95

    Fatima, relics, miracles and more: about these and scores of other claims of the Catholic Faith, most people are simply wrong . . . including many Catholics!

    They re mistaken about what the Church really requires believers to accept, and unclear about just what She s left to the discretion of the faithful.

    To overcome these errors which can breed doubts and confusion in Catholics and non-Catholics alike the late Father Hughes here provides clear, succinct, detailed answers to what Catholics are bound to believe and practice, and what they re free to dismiss.

    Without diluting or minimizing the obligations of Catholics, Fr. Hughes eliminates many obstacles to the conversion of Protestants who find troubling or even objectionable one or more non-essential beliefs or practices of the Church.

    From these eye-opening pages, you’ll learn:
    The real reason Catholics accept the doctrines of the Church: it’s simpler than you may think
    The very minimum every Catholic must believe and do: do you know where the line is drawn?
    The worship and services that all Catholics must render to God (Can you name them?) and the ones they are free to practice or not
    How inquirers (and believers, as well) can assent to the Catholic faith without knowing each and every one of her teachings
    Why the Church will not in fact, cannot ever ask the faithful to assent to a proven truth of reason
    Which miracles all Catholics are required to accept and the ones they can legitimately doubt (plus, an easy way to tell the difference)
    How revelation gives birth to and limits the reach of the Church’s doctrinal authority
    That, contrary to popular belief, the Church since apostolic times has never taught a new doctrine and can
    Where the Church has authority over the conclusions of science (and where She has none)
    The religious obedience is due even to some non-infallible declarations of the Church
    What, precisely, Catholics are required to accept in Church pronouncements about apparitions, relics, scapulars, shrines, holy images, and other popular devotions, and what they need not believe

    These brisk, refreshing pages sweep away countless errors and confusions about the Catholic faith, showing Catholics and non-Catholics that it is far more reasonable and inviting than its critics claim: indeed, the only faith fully the respects the conscience and intelligence of creatures while conveying the full truth to them about the love of God for them and their obligations to Him.

From strengthening parishes and schools to expanding religious education programs and inviting new religious orders to the City, he left an indelible mark on the faithful in New York and beyond.

  • Proving The Catholic Faith Is Biblical

    $19.95

    If you want quick, substantive answers to the most common (and even several uncommon) claims that Catholic beliefs and practices aren’t biblical, then Proving the Catholic Faith is Biblical is the book for you.

    In these pages, veteran apologist Dave Armstrong carefully walks you through the key teachings of the Church, revealing how each is rooted in Scripture.

    He begins with several essays on tradition before moving into Ecclesiology, explaining the basis of a single Church, why priests are called father, and whether Church councils are more authoritative than the pope.

    Armstrong then justifies priestly celibacy before moving into the theology of salvation. He illuminates the Church’s teaching on predestination, what believing in Jesus really means, and the relationship between faith and good works.

    He continues by explaining purgatory and penance, the ritualism of the Holy Mass, the Rosary, the Communion of Saints, Mary as Queen of Heaven, papal infallibility, annulments, contraception, the necessity of Hell, and even the development of Church doctrine.

    All told, he offers here 80 powerful essays that make sense of so many Catholic beliefs and practices that puzzle non-Catholics and cradle Catholics alike.

    Read this book, and you’ll come to see that not only is the Catholic Faith thoroughly biblical, it is the only Christian religion in full conformity with Scripture. Continue Reading Proving The Catholic Faith Is Biblical

  • Discover Your Next Mission From God

    $17.95

    God created each person for a specific purpose and with a specific mission. How do I find out what that mission is?

    Every saint in heaven once asked this question. Their path to discovering God’s will was often frustrating and tedious, but their reward for perseverance is eternity in heaven.

    In Discover Your Next Mission from God, author and retreat-leader Julie Onderko uncovers the lives of countless saints to show how they searched for — and ultimately discovered — God’s will for their lives. By reflecting on the decisions, circumstances, and ever-guiding love of God in the saints’ lives, you’ll come to a greater knowledge of how to see and live the plan He has for your life.

    You’ll learn how Maximillian Kolbe got God’s plan wrong before he got it right. You’ll read about St. Helena who persevered under the most challenging circumstances, including watching her son murder her grandson. You’ll discover how St. Andre Bessette found his calling to heal physical afflictions through devotion to St. Joseph.

  • Filling Our Fathers House

    Converts often bring to the Catholic Church an evangelical zeal that can renew and energize even the most tired and battle weary among us.

  • Worshipping A Hidden God

    $14.95

    17 Chapters

    Additional Info
    The ways of God are not our ways, and the spiritual life is almost the contrary of what we fancy it.

    So declares author Luis Martinez, the Mexican bishop and mystic whose wise spirituality, rooted in St. John of the Cross and St. Therese of Lisieux, shows you here how to enter into an intense, sustainedcommunion with God.

    Bishop Martinez doesn’t offer new rules of prayer or demand that you abandon the forms of meditation that suit you. He simply reminds you that our God is a hidden God.

    To find Him, says Martinez, we have to seek Him, but through His ways, not ours. If we do that, the gaze of faith will always find Him right where He hides: in the spiritual desolation that led us wrongly to believe He was far away.

    Martinezshows you how to live in the obscurity of faith, detached both from consolations and desolations, and why this is best for your soul. The Christian who learns to do this leaves behind the perturbations of the world that shake the faith of those who don’t.

    In the obscurity of faith, the Divine Master will listen to you, speak to you, and instruct your soul, but without the noise of words.

    Says Martinez: Once youknow how to profit from faith and to live by faith, you will always find God. You will have solved your problem; you will have discovered the great secret of the interior life.

  • Spiritual Handbook For Catholic Evangelists

    $14.95

    Previously published under title: Inner strength for active Apostles: how to win souls without losing your own, 2003.
    Nearly a century ago, the Trappist monk Jean-Baptiste Chautard sat in the silence of his cell and wrote this classic book, showing us how to live in the noise and bustle of the world and to win more souls for Christ.

    Praised by Pope St. Pius X, Pope Benedict XV, and by many cardinals and bishops, Spiritual Handbook for Catholic Evangelists was an instant hit when it was first published in 1912, and has since been read with gratitude by hundreds of thousands of busy parents, teachers, preachers, catechists, and other Christians working in the world to save souls without losing their own.

    Generations of Christians have turned to this book because Fr. Chautard understands – and here offers sure remedies for – the particular spiritual problems that afflict all ofus who try to bring others to Christ. He explains how to avoid the self-righteousness and pride that bring down successful apostles, and the indifference and despair that hobble unsuccessful ones.

    Relying on the spiritual wisdom of the greatest saints and mystics of the Church (from St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas to St. Francis de Sales and St.John of the Cross), Spiritual Handbook for Catholic Evangelists shows you how to achieve each of the three essential goals that you must accomplish in your apostolic efforts: you must win souls to Christ; you must promote your own spiritual welfare; and you must give glory to God.

    Here is a spiritual handbook that will help you grow closer toJesus as you spread His gospel, and will make it easier for you – byyour words and your example – to lead ever more souls to him.

  • Rocket Ships And God

    $14.95

    We often hear that science and religion are incompatible, and that those of us who profess faith in God are unwilling to bend our will to the truth.

    In these pages, the prolific inventor and rocket scientist Dr. Rocco Martino exposes the fallacy and danger of such claims. He tackles head-on the question of truth, showing that despite all the technological and scientific discoveries of our age, religious truth has never been – and will never be – proven to be in error.

    Faith, Dr. Martino explains, is an indispensible element in any search for truth, even for scientists using the scientific method. In clear and easy-to-understand language, he carefully bridges the gap between faith and reason, showing that truth cannot possibly be discovered without the balanced application of both principles.

    In a very rational way he shows how we must use reason as a tool to accept or reject truth claims, and why faith coupled with revelation must serve as the final determinant for acceptance.

    When we approach scientific discoveries with the mind of faith, we inevitably come to a much deeper understanding of who we are and how we came to be. Indeed, science heightens our ability to prove the existence of God and it, ultimately, strengthens our faith.

    Read these pages and you’ll enter into the mind of a rocket scientist well-versed in philosophy and theology, journeying with him as he looks for God, and then at God. Continue Reading Rocket Ships And God

    $14.95

    Do you attend Mass out of love rather than obligation?

    Are you closer to God now than you were a year ago?

    Are you able to keep a consistent prayer life?

    If you answered no to any of these questions, your spiritual life needs a jump-start. In Humdrum to Holy, popular priest and radio host, Fr. Ed Broom, will stir in you a holy reverence and spiritual joy that’ll point your soul to heaven.

    By following the wise counsel of this experienced spiritual advisor and confessor, you’ll first learn how to identify your kryptonite – those hidden sins in your life that keep God from working in your soul.

    Fr. Ed will walk you through the simple steps to creating a plan of life – your roadmap to the heights of holiness. In a clear, methodical, and practical way, you’ll learn how to cultivate virtues like patience and purity – virtues that are difficult to attain but essential for happiness in this life and getting into heaven in the next!

    You’ll discover some of the most potent Catholic traditions, such as lectio divina, that have made saints out of countless sinners. And he’ll show you how to transform pious practices such as Confession and Eucharistic adoration into a powerhouse of graces flooding into your soul.

    Scripture tells us that where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more. Our world needs saints, and God is offering you the graces needed to become one. Leave behind the humdrum spiritual life and open the door to the road to sainthood. Fr. Broom is ready to show you the way.

    Here’s the award-winning classic that for over forty years has shown Christian men how to be the loving husbands and gentle fathers that Christ calls them to be.

    Rooted firmly in Scripture, these pages call on husbands to stop thinking of themselves simply as bosses and breadwinners. Rather, says author Clayton Barbeau, husbands should see themselves as co-creators with God, imitators of Christ’s love for His people, high priests in the domestic Church, teachers of their children, witnesses to society, providers of spiritual and material goods, and models of holiness.

    But Barbeau offers more than just a sublime vision of marriage. Drawing on his own experiences as a husband and a father, he gives you practical tips to help you transform that vision into a daily reality in your own marriage.

    Armed with Barbeau’s wisdom, you’ll grow closer to your wife and to your children, while deepening your love for God. You’ll be able to lead your family to holiness amidst the troubles and temptations that threaten even the best of families today: infidelity, divorce, materialism, loneliness, and despair.

  • 1 Minute Aquinas

    $19.95

    Pope St. Pius X said that in just one year, a man can derive more profit from the works of St. Thomas Aquinas than from a lifetime studying the works of others.

    If you don’t have a year to study the more than 3,000+ pages St. Thomas wrote, then turn to The One-Minute Aquinas, the fast-paced book that provides busy readers with simple, readable explanations of the truths that, for 750 years now, have caused the works of St. Thomas to be sought out by kings and popes, scholars and saints, as well as by ordinary souls like you hungry to know God and to love him more and more.

    In this book’s lucid pages, author Kevin Vost gives you mall, digestible portions of St. Thomas’s life-giving wisdom that you can enjoy one minute at a time. Tables and graphics will help you grasp and remember St. Thomas’s key ideas with a minimum of time and effort.

    Best of all, in The One-Minute Aquinas you’ll find quick, sure refutations of the countless relativistic, secular, and pseudoscientific ideas that are so influential in our culture today and so shallow, contradictory, and wrong!

    Pope John Paul II declared that The Church has been justified in consistently proposing St. Thomas as a master of thought and a model of the right way to do theology. Now The One-Minute Aquinas enables even those with limited time and only a modest education to benefit from the wisdom of this great saint.

    Here, with minimal effort and among scores of other things, you’ll finally come to know and understand: Why God permits evil, Why He created t he universe, His power and (yes!) its limits. Why Jesus let Himself be tempted. How you can grow quickly in virtue. The natural law and the Commandments. The causes of lust (and how to remedy it). Aquinas’s five simple proofs that God exists Grace: did you know there are six kinds?

    Temperance (and what it does not forbid) Fortitude, and the virtues that strengthen it Mary: can she really be the Mother of God? And more! Continue Reading 1 Minute Aquinas

    About The Author

    Additional Info
    In words often as sassy as those of her little Pope Awesome, Catholic homeschooler Cari Donaldson here relates how her best friend’s newborn baby, a portrait of the Virgin Mary, and the words of the Miraculous Medal called her forth from a selfish, secular way of life into the welcoming arms of the Church.

    Six children in ten years have banished all her hopes for a tidy secular life, and, in her upscale town, where Cats, not kids bumper stickers are seen, have raised countless eyebrows along the way. Undaunted, Cari declares that If we’re to be a traveling carnival freak-show by New England standards, then we’re going to be a carnival freak-show for Jesus, although her husband has stopped her from airbrushing onto her van a mural of Our Lady of Guadalupe riding a unicorn over a sparkling river.

    Above all, Cari tells of the awakening of her love for the Eucharist, the deepening of her love for her husband and her children, and the humility and faith these experiences have nurtured in her. To Jesus she confesses, You taught me to be open to the lives You wanted to bring into the world through me. I rose above myself just enough to let You bring the blessings of these children into my life. I was sometimes scared and sometimes angry, and always at a loss about how I was going to mother these children, but I knew that it would be Your grace, and not my shortcomings, that would triumph.

    Through Cari’s remarkable tale of her conversion and the joy she’s found as a Catholic, you’lll be reminded of the many profound, lifelong blessings God gives you through your Faith, and, yes, even through life’s small troubles and joys like little Pope Awesome punching his Swiss Guards in the face that come along every day. Cari’s tale will help you come to share her conviction that we never know what God has planned for us tomorrow, but, for sure, it will be better than anything we could have planned, even in our wildest dreams.

    $4.95

The artists whose works are the focus of the meditations are masters at conveying the sense of the sacred which is so conducive to reflective prayer.

    The method of reciting the rosary that is used here is praised by Pope Paul VI in his encyclical Marialis Cultus: For the precise purpose of favoring contemplation and to help the mind correspond to the words being used, it was the practice at one time…to add to the name of Jesus in every ‘Hail May’ a phrase which would recall they mystery that had been announced.

  • Called By God

    $16.95

    In Called by God: Discernment and Preparation for Religious Life, Rachael Marie Collins provides an overview of the spiritual life-both its joys and its challenges-and guides women as they discern whether they are called to be religious sisters or nuns.

    In a series of letters written by the author to a trusted friend discerning whether to enter religious life, Called by God explores both discernment and spirituality. The key to discernment, Collins argues, is to prepare for religious life by entering deeply into a life of prayer and sacrifice so that one experiences and begins to understand the work of a religious before entering the convent.

    Called by God draws heavily on the wisdom of great Catholic women such as Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux, Zelie Martin, Edith Stein, Teresa of the Andes, Elizabeth of the Trinity, Miriam Teresa Demjanovich, Elizabeth Leseur, and Caryll Houselander, among others.

    Women discerning a vocation will benefit immensely from the discussions about the difference between religious life and marriage, the nature of a vocation, the supernatural superiority of religious life, and spiritual motherhood in Called by God. Continue Reading Called By God

  • Father Ted Hesburgh

    $16.95

    A Triumph Books Title

    The University of Notre Dame is a special place, regarded by many as the world’s top Catholic institution of higher learning. Yet its modern reputation for excellence and service is only part of the legacy of Father Theodore Hesburgh, the university’s president from 1952 to 1987. Father Ted’s influence extended beyond Notre Dame’s campus in Northern Indiana. He worked with presidents, Popes, and Martin Luther King, Jr., and his guidance resulted in nuclear nonproliferation, immigration reform, and civil rights legislation. One of the many Domers influenced by Father Ted was Richard Digger Phelps, Notre Dame’s men’s basketball coach from 1971 to 1991. Phelps gives readers a seat at the table with Father Ted, from the basketball locker room in the 1970s to Father Ted’s final Mass before he passed away in 2015. This account is an intimate portrait of an unlikely friendship and a rare look at the private moments of a man Digger often describes as a living saint. Continue Reading Father Ted Hesburgh

  • Interior Castle

    $16.00

    Celebrated for almost five centuries as a master of spiritual literature, 16th-century saint, Teresa of Avila, is one of the most beloved religious figures in history.

    Overcome one day by a mystical vision of a crystal castle with seven chambers, each representing a different stage in spiritual development, Teresa immediately wrote The Interior Castle. Probably her most important and widely studied work, it guides the spiritual seeker through each stage of development until the soul’s final union with the divine. Free of religious dogma, this modern translation renders St. Teresa’s work a beautiful and practical set of teachings for seekers of all faiths in need of spiritual guidance. It also places this classic in a contemporary context, reasserting its spiritual and literary importance even after more than 400 years. Continue Reading Interior Castle

  • Going Home

    $18.95

    Our world today is increasingly marked by controversy and contention, bitter at times, around moral, questions and what it means to live a good life. Often missing in these controversies is a sense of the mercy of God reaching out to everyone as we struggle to do good and avoid evil in this world. Discussions about the content of moral law founder in a morass of guilt, blame, and anger because of this failure to grasp the compassionate love of God for all people.

    Going Home is a book-length meditation on God’s mercy, based on the parable of the prodigal son and drawing greatly on the writings of Catherine de Hueck Doherty, Fr. Denis Lemieux shows us the astonishing power of the parable to heal the wounds of sin and division in our lives and set us anew on the journey to the Father. The journey of the sinner who knows the embrace of the Father emerges from this meditation as the true path of joy, compassion, and blessing in the world today. Continue Reading Going Home
