  • 4 Levels Of Happiness


    Based on his study of great theologians and philosophers dating back to Aristotle, eminent philosopher and physicist Rev. Dr. Robert Spitzer devised his Four Levels of Happiness, asserting that whichever level dominates our lives will dictate our actions and determine the depth and endurance of our happiness. Incorporating examples from science, philosophy, psychology, and everyday life, Spitzer engagingly lays out achievable ways to ascend the ladder of happiness and find the fulfillment of all your desires.

    Whether you are religiously minded or a skeptic, you will explore the fascinating relationship between science and the transcendent and gain keys to attaining the heights of joy. You will discover:

    *Four questions that will help you determine where you are on the happiness scale
    *The essential ingredient for level-one happiness
    *The endless loop people get stuck in with level-two happiness
    *The keys to level-three happiness and what goes into deciding to move to level four
    *Nine questions to ask yourself about others that will enlighten your mind and change your life

    You will also learn about five transcendental desires that pull you up toward the fourth level of happiness and five cosmic inadequacies that drive you beyond the world of the senses.

    Through the lens of science, Spitzer sheds light on the origins of the universe and man and the benefits of supernatural faith. Additionally, he explains three types of prayer and methods for developing a personal relationship with the Creator to find lasting and authentic joy.

    Most significantly, you will find what it truly means to reach the level of transcendence. As you learn practical tips based on Ignatius of Loyola’s Rules of Discernment, you will be empowered to live an enlightened, purposeful, joyous life.

  • Screwtape Letters And The Catechism


    All of us are faced with the daily onslaught of sin and temptation. We are all involved in a spiritual battle to keep our souls united with Christ so we can attain heaven.

    The Screwtape Letters and the Catechism brings together two wonderful and significant resources that can help us to grow in spiritual courage. Engaging the Catechism of the Catholic Church from a new perspective, against the backdrop of C. S. Lewis’ classic The Screwtape Letters, this book will help you to recognize temptation and engage in the battle against sin. Following Lewis and the Catechism, you will learn how to use the teachings of Christ to outwit the evil one.

    In this book, each chapter of The Screwtape Letters is cross-referenced with the Catechism. By examining the dialogue between the demons Wormwood and Screwtape, we can apply Screwtape’s lessons on temptation to our daily lives. The Catechism provides sound and reasonable explanations of the Catholic Faith, and these explanations debunk the methods of Screwtape. C.S. Lewis masterfully invites us into the diabolical world of Screwtape and Wormwood and the ever-present battle between good and evil. The Catechism, on the other hand, masterfully reveals the teachings of Jesus Christ as a living gift of the Church that shows us the love of God for his children.

  • Welcoming The Holy Spirit With Padre Pio


    Let the Holy Spirit lead you to the Living Water that feeds our well of faith.

    When asked about his spiritual gifts of healing, bilocation, prophecy, and stigmata, Padre Pio replied, “You know, they are a mystery to me, too.” While you might think he is just being modest, he is actually getting at the heart of how the Holy Spirit works in every Christian’s life. We can’t fully understand why God gives us certain gifts, but as we walk with Christ, we can engage with this mystery and journey towards holiness.

    In Welcoming the Holy Spirit with Padre Pio, Susan De Bartoli shares stories and wisdom from the life of this humble monk to show how we can use our unique spiritual gifts to love others and draw from the well of faith to encounter Christ in profound ways.

    Following the success of her Advent devotional, Welcoming the Christ Child with Padre Pio, Susan De Bartoli invites you to explore Padre Pio’s relationship with the third member of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Spirit, who is the source of all spiritual gifts.

    Through the stories of this simple Capuchin priest, you’ll discover what is possible for those who surrender themselves to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. At Baptism, we all receive the fruits of the Spirit–gifts like wisdom, fortitude, and piety–that empower us to “dive deep” into the well of faith. The Holy Spirit also graces some of us with special charisms–supernatural gifts such as healing, teaching, or intercessory abilities–intended to serve the Church. In this book, you’ll learn how to nurture these gifts, just as Padre Pio did, so that even your “ordinary” spiritual gifts and charisms can bless others and deepen your own faith.

    Each chapter offers quotations from Padre Pio, a short story about the saint, prayer, and reflection questions that you can apply to your own life, such as:

    *What are my spiritual gifts and how have I seen them play out in my life already?

    *Am I consistently drinking from the well of faith?

    *What does the Lord want me to do with my life, and how can I use my spiritual gifts to serve the Church?

    *Am I willing to surrender even the good things in my life to glorify the Lord?

    Welcoming the Holy Spirit with Padre Pio is the perfect companion for those who are already drawn to Padre Pio’s spirituality or anyone yearning to strengthen their relationship with the Holy Spirit. Through the example of this extraordinary saint, you will discover how continually drawing from the well of Li

  • Called On The Way


    Discipleship is not a program to be implemented or a goal to be achieved but a lifelong walk with Christ, who is the way.

    Our calling by Christ to be his disciples is so fundamental to our faith that we sometimes fail to realize its meaning. What does it mean to be called? What is a disciple? In Called on the Way: The Daily Practice of Discipleship, authors Kathleen Cahalan and Laura Kelly Fanucci explore through personal stories, Scripture readings, and prayer experiences, what it means to be called a disciple “on the way.”

    Through our roles and relationships, each person is blessed with many callings to heed God’s invitation to follow the way of Christ. Calling is something we do, someone we are, and someone we become and the image of “the way” is the central biblical theme of our journey together . Called on the Way includes seven practical ways you can understand and live out your own call to discipleship as a follower, worshiper, witness, neighbor, forgiver, prophet, and steward. Each chapter includes a personal story, biblical foundation, and connections to saintly and sacramental practice. Reflection questions help identify how you and your parish community can live the life of discipleship in the time and place where God is leading you and calling you now.

  • Interior Life Of Saint Ghomas Aquinas


    Many are well aware of St. Thomas Aquinas’s intellectual prowess – his genius in metaphysics and supernatural theology that pierced the depths of truth. However, few know about the private spiritual life of this illustrious Doctor of the Church. This work, written by Msgr. Martin Grabmann, a foremost authority on Aquinas, is unique in its telling of the holiness of St. Thomas’s priestly soul.

    Neither a purely devotional nor a strictly scientific treatment of the interior life of St. Thomas, this book combines the two to help you appreciate the character of the Angelic Doctor. Through St. Thomas’s own words, you will come to understand how and why he learned more at the feet of the Crucified One than from the innumerable books he read.

    In this revealing book, you will gain insights into Aquinas’s heart through his works and the acts of his canonization process. Msgr. Grabmann highlights three areas in the saint’s interior life: wisdom, charity, and peace. St. Thomas asked God that he might think like Christ, love like Christ, and be at peace like Christ, so his soul and actions were ordered after those of Jesus Christ, and his writings on intimacy with God flowed from his own experience of this communion.

    St. Thomas spent his life in contemplative prayer, study, writing, and preaching. It is said that he began his writings with prayer and was often moved to tears. Through testimonies about the Angelic Doctor, you will learn about his untold mysticism and discover:

    *The secret to developing fervent charity and attaining spiritual delight
    *The threefold wisdom in which St. Thomas found the meaning and happiness of life
    *Thomas’s exemplary purity and temperance and how he ordered his whole life toward God
    *His self-sacrifice, kindness, and charity and why he was called the Cherubim of the Eucharistic mystery

    Revered as one of the greatest thinkers of all time, St. Thomas also possessed the faith of a child. You will be astounded by the true stories of his humility and patience in instructing beginners in the spiritual life and the mercy and compassion he extended to others.

  • Citizens Yet Strangers


    It’s hard — and getting harder — to discern the proper relationship between our Catholic Faith and American political life. Democrat, Republican, third party, or independent — how do we make sense of it all?

    Citizens Yet Strangers resets the framework of how we engage with politics as Catholics. As author Kenneth Craycraft argues in this book, American Catholics have been more influenced by classical liberal political theory (of both the “conservative” and “liberal” variety) than by historic Catholic moral theology. While some incidental policy positions of the Democratic and Republican parties converge with Catholic moral teaching, for most Catholics, their respective positions are directed by their party affiliation, not by Catholic moral doctrine.

    Craycraft explains how Catholic theology transcends partisan politics, and he challenges Catholics to move away from the individualist liberal impulses of American political identity, whether on the left or the right. Avoiding the common cliches that prevent us from examining the role our faith should play in our public actions, this book dives deeper into the very way we orient our moral and political lives.

  • Gods Love Song


    The Canticle of the Creatures “is Francis’s love song. It is Franciscan wholeness, for in it is contained the depth of his prayer and of his life in Christ. In its singing he was singing his dying and his rising, for his song was a journey of praise and thanksgiving for his place of origin and his destination, the Most High, All-Powerful, Good Lord.”–Murray Bodo

    Using St. Francis’s canticle as a framework, Murray Bodo, a Franciscan friar, and Susan Saint Sing, a secular Franciscan, reflect on the vision of Francis and Clare as it has played out over the course of their own lives. Susan’s experiences of healing during trips to Assisi and praying in nature and Murray’s deep understanding of Francis and Clare as poets and mystics come together in a duet that brings God’s love song to life.

    These deeply personal reflections explore the power of prayer and meditation, the sacredness of all creation, and the pull of sacred places. This meditative, reflective reading experience conveys what a lifetime of Franciscan spirituality looks like and will draw you into exploring your own experience of the vision of Francis and Clare.

  • Myself As Another


    Myself As Another uniquely approaches the reality of the human person offering an exploration of the writings of politicians, psychiatrists, and philosophers on the subject of personal identity and the ‘other.’ McNerney’s treatment of these questions is made not on intellectual stilts, but rather with a focus on the heart of contemporary human experience in the light of God’s self-revelation. Drawing deeply on the insights of Jewish, Protestant, and Catholic thinkers McNerney shows how a spirituality of unity can nourish us on “a journey to the heart of who we are.”

  • Guidance In Spiritual Direction


    Spiritual direction is a vital aspect of the priestly ministry. It launches souls on the road to Heaven and keeps them oriented as the pathway becomes narrow and steep. Everyone – from the pope to the most innocent of children – needs spiritual direction.

    In these rich pages, Msgr. Charles Hugo Doyle shares wisdom and practical advice on the process that holds rewards not only for priests but for lay faithful as well.

    As Fr. Edward J. Hogan of St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore observed when the book was first published in 1958, “There are countless souls ripe for sanctity, full of generosity and desire, and needing only the expert advice of a divinely ordained doctor of souls to advance toward sainthood. Yet how often they remain unattended!”

    Fr. Hogan observed that some Catholic priests hesitate to engage in spiritual direction and to reap the harvest of saints it can produce because they suffer from “a feeling of inadequacy and of lack of the requisite knowledge for so sensitive an undertaking.”

    This is why the famed Msgr. Doyle wrote this book. He guided a generation of priests in the time-tested methods of spiritual direction and even today serves as a guide for lay Catholics who want to progress in holiness but have yet to find a spiritual director of their own.

    In one timeless volume, Msgr. Doyle lays out the classic principles of Catholic spirituality and distills advice from saints who were commonly regarded as the greatest spiritual directors of their time. You will discover:

    *The art of maintaining a devotional spirit all day long
    *How to advance through the “spiritual stages”
    *The stumbling blocks to genuine meditation
    *Seven brief prayers that can increase your devotion at Mass
    *Eight indicators that you are growing in holiness
    *Ten proven methods to advance in virtue

    You will also find ways the devil tries to disrupt you on the path to holiness and how to effectively battle the seven deadly sins. Additionally, you will learn about the danger of scruples, how to overcome them, and how to replace fear with a childlike trust and confidence in God.

    St. Vincent Ferrer, the great Dominican saint, said about spiritual direction, “A person who has a director by whom he allows himself to be guided . . . will more easily and quickly arrive at perfection than he ever could by himself.”

    This book is a must for every serious Christian’s spiritual library.

  • Jesus Make Me Fully Alive


    No matter what stage of the game you’re in, today’s schedules are b-u-s-y. Classes or work, coffee meetups, pickup pickleball games, time with family-you name it. The calendar tends to keep the social commitments and professional pressures high.

    In somewhat quieter moments of adulting, you may be combing apps for common ground, seeking community, and somehow still feeling as though you’re just going through the motions.

    Associate chaplain of the St. John Paul II Newman Center at the University of Illinois-Chicago, Fr. Tim Anastos says that when we take our prayer life seriously, approaching God with confidence and making a regular Holy Hour, Jesus begins to replace anxiety, insecurity, and doubt with love, freedom, and eternity.

    “Living in this world can easily drain us of life and joy, making us half alive, like zombies,” Anastos writes. “Jesus, Make Me Fully Alive can help recharge our relationship with Christ. Holy Hours are not just meant for the pope or the saints or ‘holy people.’ They are meant for you.”

    Beginning where you are (a few minutes for intentional prayer or an entire hour spent in Adoration), Anastos’s thirty Holy Hour exercises will help you easily engage with Jesus in prayer, building your personal relationship with God. You’ll also encounter:

    *personal examples of how Adoration made a difference in Fr. Anastos’s own prayer life, *suggestions about how to incorporate lectio divina in your prayer, and
    *imaginative prayer and spiritual journaling you can tap into before the Blessed Sacrament.

  • In Search Of A Full Life


    Maybe you are a committed young adult Catholic, or maybe you’re not Catholic at all. Perhaps you were baptized and even completed your initiation into the Catholic Church through First Communion and Confirmation, and yet you don’t think of yourself as “Catholic” first. Wherever you are in life, you’re probably seeking a life with deeper meaning and substance.

    Living a full life is more than just taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually and doing nice things for others; it’s about becoming like Jesus. And in order to do this, we must “give up childish ways,” as Saint Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians. We must be open to growth and strive to become mature adults.

    Tackling a host of cultural and developmental topics, including prayer, friendships, dating, discernment, and more, In Search of a Full Life empowers young people with real guidance on the way to a full life of significance and consequence. In this book, Dr. Leonard DeLorenzo offers practical, achievable advice for growing in Christian maturity and becoming the person God created you to be.

  • 1st Belong To God


    “This is not a time to hunker down and lock our doors. I see clearly that the Lord is calling us out of ourselves, to get up and walk.” –From the Foreword by POPE FRANCIS

    Drawing on the wisdom of Pope Francis and the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Austen Ivereigh has written a captivating spiritual guide for our turbulent age.

    Designed as an eight-day Ignatian retreat, First Belong to God serves as a roadmap to deeper discipleship. It does this by focusing on the three foundational forms of belonging: to God, to creation, and to others.

    Structured around the core principles of St. Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises, First Belong to God encapsulates the key aspects of the Francis pontificate:

    *the essence of being “God-belonging” entities
    *the way God’s mercy challenges our self-reliance
    *the journey to building the Kingdom in the footsteps of Christ
    *heeding the cry of the earth and the stranger
    *striving for fraternity by championing synodality

    Whether you’re embarking on a solitary spiritual expedition or a journey with like-minded individuals, First Belong to God offers the next best thing to a personal retreat with Pope Francis: a full-soul immersion into his wisdom via the classic Jesuit retreat that shaped him so profoundly.

  • What The Heart Of Jesus Does And Says In The Tabernacle


    St. Manuel Gonzalez Garcia, renowned as the Bishop of the Abandoned Tabernacle and acclaimed the greatest Eucharistic priest since the Cure of Ars, reflected: “I intend to awaken the curiosity, which in this case can truly be called holy, to understand and uncover what the Heart of Jesus in the Tabernacle does, says, and feels. I promise delightful surprises, invaluable discoveries, unimagined horizons, to those who allow themselves to be piqued by this curiosity.”

    Through these profound yet practical meditations, sometimes written from the perspective of Jesus speaking to you, you will be guided into deeper intimacy with our Eucharistic Lord and inspired to share His love with others.

    *The mission of those closest to Jesus in the Gospels and how to imitate them
    *Greater fervor in receiving Holy Communion and praying in Eucharistic Adoration
    *How Jesus is neither idle nor silent in His Eucharistic Presence
    *The three ways the Heart of Jesus looks at souls – and how He looks at you
    *The secret to touching the Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to receive healing

    There is also a stirring section at the end of the book about what the Heart of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist says to priests.

    St. Manuel tirelessly wrote these reflections, originally published as articles, to “preach to active souls the necessity, importance, and fruitfulness of staying in the tabernacle because the Love who dwells there is not loved but is abandoned!” St. Manuel will show you how to cultivate awe and reverence as you bask in our Lord’s Eucharistic Presence and let His power permeate your life. As your love of Jesus’ Eucharistic Heart deepens, you will learn how to console Him as He consoles you and be inflamed to offer your life in witness to your faith.

    Above all, in the Holy Eucharist, you will encounter the Friend who always waits to listen to you with His Heart and always speaks to your heart. In the light of the tabernacle, you will learn how to grow in virtue, overcome temptation, and live without fear.

  • From The Grave


    40-day Lent devotional from a beloved spiritual writer

    As for the field, so for the soul: “The neglected heart will soon be overrun with worldly thoughts.” Careful cultivation yields a harvest, and the heart requires great attention. .

Gleaned from transcribed sermons, editorials, and published books, each moving reflection has been carefully selected for the season of Lent. It addresses themes like:

    *Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection
    *Mortification of the flesh
    *Self-denial and cross-bearing
    *New life in Christ
    *Christian obedience and resurrection hope

    Each day features a brief portion of Scripture for meditation followed by a reflection from Tozer. Together the entries take you on a journey from the garden to the grave to light of day–the “pain-wracked path” to life.

  • Solitude And Silence


    What can the lay person learn from the life of a monk? Solitude and Silence are two pillars of monastic life that many people quickly point to as the hardest and most confusing parts of this kind of religious consecration. However, the great spiritual writer Thomas a Kempis, author of The Imitation of Christ, helps us to understand that all Christians are called to some solitude and silence in our lives while not taking on a complete eremitical life. He recommends the systematic and intentional incorporation of solitude and silence in a manner which is consistent with each one’s vocation and state of life.

    It is important for us to cultivate these two habits in order to enter into contemplation and conversation with God. This vision of God may also be experienced (to varying degrees) even in this world, through the grace of contemplative prayer. And silence and solitude are the hallowed doors through which one must pass to arrive at this delightful and serene state of holy contemplation.

  • Finding Peace In The Storm


    Sometimes discernment seems complicated, and we struggle to “be still” to listen to God’s voice. Following the death of his spiritual director, St. Alphonsus Liguori penned timeless advice in a letter to one of his spiritual daughters, and it became the famous work titled Uniformity with God’s Will. Now Dan Burke breaks open St. Alphonsus’s eighteenth-century classic for you. He intersperses relevant explanations and insights within the text of this great saint and includes reflection questions for each chapter.

    St. Alphonsus explains, “We should most confidently abandon ourselves to all the dispositions of divine providence, since they are for our own good.” In page after page, Burke shows you how the “wind and waves” can help you ascend to union with God. You will discover:

    *The “paralyzing cocktail” we drink when we reject God’s will
    *When good works are displeasing to God (Can you guess?)
    *Three prayers that will assist you in directing all things to God’s will
    *Two ways we can know God’s love and hear His voice
    *Two life-altering spiritual disciplines according to St. Teresa of Avila
    *How humiliation, adversity, and trials can bring freedom, healing, and salvation (You will be shocked!)

    Liguori intersperses fascinating real-life examples from the saints to assist you in remaining steadfast amid afflictions. He explains three temptations that confront us and how to resist them, along with four practices of uniformity to God’s will and a surefire way to unite your sufferings to Christ’s sufferings.

    You will acquire tips on what to do during periods of aridity or desolation. Above all, you will discover how to enjoy peace of heart in all circumstances and foster loving conversation with God. By learning how to entrust yourself fully to God’s holy will, you will experience His divine embrace and the fulfillment of your deepest desires.

    A “What Next?” section helps you take practical steps in doing God’s will. Burke also provides a summary of the Paradigm of Ascent, which provides often hidden but foundational insights and practices necessary to live out Liguori’s wisdom and to know the peace promised by God. In addition, he provides a simple action plan to implement these fruitful practices in your life.

  • Theology Of Style


    Your personal style reflects who you are?an extraordinary creation, beautifully designed by God.

    Every outfit we choose holds the power to express our unique personality and identity as cherished children of God. This truth goes beyond mere clothing; personal style is a divine expression of our unrepeatable identity, reflecting the fact that we are made in God’s image.

    In Theology of Style: Expressing the Unique and Unrepeatable You, author Lillian Fallon draws from her experience in the fashion industry to delve deep into the profound truth that what we wear is far more than just fabric on our bodies?it is a radiant statement of our unrepeatable identity, a tangible expression of being made in the image of our Creator.

    *Does what we wear truly matter?
    *Can our clothing choices reflect our faith?
    *How does our personal style affirm our dignity as individuals created in the image of God?
    *How can we glorify God, and grow closer to him, through our clothing and personal style?
    *Where does modesty fit in?
    *And more!

    Within these pages, Catholic women will uncover the incredible significance of style as a tool for understanding their purpose, recognizing their worth, and building an intimate relationship with God.

  • 12 Rules For Manliness


    Deep in every man’s heart is a call to live the heroic way, to champion a cause greater than himself. The everyday hero goes beyond the ordinary in the little moments of his life and rides high in the saddle as he achieves his principles and dreams.

    The cowboys of old were, in many ways, the models of manliness. They were perceptive and decisive. They lived by a personal creed a” and they knew how to make a stand. They had a simple understanding of what needed to be done, and they did it even when it was difficult.

    In 12 Rules for Manliness, adventurer Bear Woznick lays out a plan to help men learn how to develop a proper personal creed, and then define themselves by the hardships they endure in pursuit of that mission.

  • Hope : An Invitation


    Sr. Josephine Garrett, CSFN, is a woman full of hope, and she’s here to help you find authentic hope in your life, too. What she offers is real hope — not wishing on a shooting star or hoping you win the lottery, but the messy and risky kind. She also takes an unflinching look at the painful parts of hope, our struggles with hope, and our labors in hope.

    Authentic hope is powerful and life-giving. It appears foolish to man. But it is the foolishness of God, and “the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom” (1 Cor 1:25). Authentic hope shines light into complete and utter darkness.

    In HOPE: An Invitation, Sr. Josephine invites you to journey with her to new heights of hope, to discover the courage to press ahead into the unknown even in difficult or seemingly impossible circumstances. She shares her own struggles to live in hope amidst the circumstances of her life, and she reflects on the great problem and the great gift of hope. Ultimately, we must find our hope in the strength of the Lord, not in worldly promises, in which we deceive ourselves into thinking we can manifest good things in our life through our own strength. We need a hope that extends well beyond ourselves and into eternity — a hope that comes from God, who not only has given us hope but allows us to spread this hope to others.

  • Saint Pauls Eight Steps To Happiness


    Here is the book that will help you climb St. Paul’s “eight steps,” to attain happiness, holiness, and Heaven. Best selling author Kevin Vost breaks open St. Paul’s life and spirituality through the lens of St. Thomas Aquinas as well as other saintly and noble men and women. You will see how human knowledge (e.g. science and philosophy) point to the truth of the Divine and how the virtues St. Paul proposes in his letter to the Philippians lead to abiding joy.

    In this gem of a book, Dr. Kevin Vost reveals hidden treasures such as:

    *Why St. Paul is a “four-in-one special” (You will never guess!)
    *Three intellectual virtues that help us discover important truths
    *Two fundamental senses of truth, and three vices opposed to truth
    *Eight aspects of the nature of truth according to Aquinas
    *Eight types of justice and how you can exercise them in your life
    *The link between modesty and latria, dulia, and hyperdulia (Do you know?)

    Each chapter unpacks one of these outstanding virtues and contains an invaluable “Summing Up” section. Further highlighted are exemplary individuals to imitate in their exercise of the heroic virtue, from St. Dominic to Our Lady and St. Joseph to St. Agnes of Rome and St. Brigid to Aristotle and Cicero. Also contained are several handy tables that break down the teachings of St. Paul and St. Thomas in connection to the Sacred Scriptures and your daily life for easy referencing.

    You will find the six types of grace and their effects that God is waiting to pour into your life.

  • Silent Compassion : Finding God In Contemplation


    In Silent Compassion: Finding God in Contemplation, Richard Rohr focuses on finding God in the depths of silence. Divine silence is more than the absence of noise; it has a life of its own. We are invited into its living presence to find the wholeness of being and peace it brings. This book will inspire you and show that the peace of contemplation is not something just for monks, mystics, and those divorced from the worries of the world, but rather for all people who can quiet their own mind to listen in the silence. What’s more, this silence can absorb paradoxes, contradictions, and the challenges of life, ultimately connecting us with the great chain of being. While different faiths use different languages and different words, silence can become a common place for all to experience God.

    In May 2013, the Festival of Faiths conference in Louisville, Kentucky, featured His Holiness the Dalai Lama in an event called “Sacred Silence: Pathway to Compassion.” Richard Rohr was selected as the Christian presence among a small group of “world renowned experts on contemplative practice and compassion.” Others represented Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. Silent Compassion curates the Franciscan friar’s talks from that event as well as interviews that place his thoughts in the context of his larger work as founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation. This is an updated and expanded edition of Rohr’s original presentation on the subject.

  • Holy Silence : A Practical Guide To Recollection In God


    Fr. Basil Nortz masterfully builds upon the classic reflections of Sr. Marie-Aimee de Jesus, a nineteenth-century spiritual mystic and Carmelite nun, on the twelve degrees of silence. By cultivating these types of silence, you will find out how you can – even amid your busy days filled with chatter, commotion, and noise – listen to the voice of God.

    In these profound pages you will find ways to overcome your fear of silence and discover:

    *Keys to obeying God’s will
    *Kinds of silence that are holy and kinds that are unholy
    *Ten tips on what to do – and what to avoid – to bridle your senses
    *Seven ways to guard your imagination and foster recollection
    *How to direct your emotions with reason and foster silence of the heart
    *Effective ways of responding to injustice

    You will learn the one sinful attitude that cuts us off from the merciful forgiveness of God and will acquire ways to stop passing judgment against others. Additionally, you will learn the most important attitude that disposes us to God’s plans and allows us to enter into His love and converse with Him affectionately throughout the day. Moreover, you will find practical techniques for overcoming distractions in prayer and advice from the saints on methods of meditation to develop silence of the spirit.

    Above all, you will glean how to maintain peace of soul and live free from anxiety and despair, regardless of temptations or life’s battles. By relying totally on God, you will fearlessly rise after falls and begin again. You will begin to see the loving hand of God in all things, contemplate the light of His presence, and “be still” in the silence of His love.

    “Holy silence is what helps the soul acquire the strength necessary to bear the presence of the all-pure God, who is ipsum esse subsistens (subsistent being itself),” explains Fr. Nortz. “The intensity of that fullness, far from inspiring languid inaction, produces a vibrant joyfulness that St. John expresses in the book of Revelation in terms of the saints singing with full voice.”

  • Scrupulosity : Heal Your Mind, Unbind Your Soul, And Let God Work


    We are all called to reject sin, to grow in virtue, and, above all else, to love God with all that we are. But some souls suffer from anxiety and feelings of guilt because they see sin where there is none and struggle to embrace God’s love and mercy – a psychological and spiritual condition known as scrupulosity.

    In Scrupulosity: Heal Your Mind, Unbind Your Soul, and Let God Work, clinical psychologist Dr. Kevin Vost provides a comprehensive overview of the ancient and current psychological and theological understanding of scrupulosity and how those who suffer from it can find peace and healing. He guides the reader through the empowering effects of the sacraments, virtues, gifts of the Holy Spirit, and prayer, as well as scientific insights into the physical and emotional reality of scrupulosity. Along the way, he offers inspiration from the lives of saints.

    This book answers many common questions, such as:

    *What are the causes of scrupulosity?

    *How can I know if I have it?

    *How does it manifest in thoughts, emotions, and behaviors?

    *Does one outgrow scrupulosity over time?
    Christ does not want us to live this life with troubled hearts mired in fear. Ultimately, this book invites both the scrupulous and those who love them to attain greater spiritual and psychological peace.

  • Confession Of A Catholic Worker


    Everyone knows there is a “crisis” in the Catholic Church and in the world around us. Some say it is capitalism gone wild. Others say it is the decay of tradition, family, and objective truth. Still others say it is the rise of radical, reactionary conservatism. Though all may not agree on the nature of the crisis, who doesn’t agree that there is one, and who isn’t worried?

    For Larry Chapp, crisis is always the norm of Christian existence. In a cold, dying world choked by greed, the Gospel calls for radical love and radical living according to the Sermon on the Mount. Using the theology of Hans Urs von Balthasar, Peter Maurin, and Dorothy Day, Chapp argues that the real remedy to the disease of sin is not niceness, not political liberation, not fancy liturgical dress, not technical rigor, but a free decision to live totally and joyfully in Jesus Christ, without compromise.

    Just as the martyrs chose God over life itself, so each Christian must, in the crucial hour, choose Jesus over all things. Everything hinges on the moment of Christian witness.

  • Coming Christian Persecution


    Churches burned. Christians beheaded. Catholic communities driven underground. Governments forcing silence upon those who profess fidelity to the gospel.

    These experiences are not confined to those of the early Church or to the missionaries and converts in far-off pagan lands centuries ago. The persecution of Christians is happening right now – and it is closer to home than you may realize.

    Throughout the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and even in the West, Christian communities are being targeted for their beliefs, whether through violence or public policy, and it’s a trend that continues to escalate.

    Moral theologian and news analyst Dr. Thomas Williams incisively juxtaposes the still relatively unknown global Christian persecution of today with that of previous epochs, describing it in its various forms and providing insight into what it means for the Church and for society at large. He also provides valuable advice on how these outrages can be remedied and what Christians can do to prepare for what is to come.

    In 2020, according to the World Watch List published by Open Doors, 340 million Christians were facing “high levels of persecution.” Dr. Williams masterfully reveals the state of affairs in countries that systematically persecute Christians, such as North Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, India, China, and Pakistan. In many cases, Christians are forced to flee these countries or face economic repercussions, forced conversions to Islam, imprisonment, violence, torture, and even death.

    Dr. Williams also shows how Christian persecution has been with us since the beginning during the life of Jesus, from the time of His infancy to His death on the Cross. You’ll learn what Jesus said in the Bible about coming persecutions, as well as about the trials and martyrdom that His apostles endured and the hardships of the early Christians, including the five virgins who are commemorated in the Roman Canon of the Holy Mass.

    Dr. Williams also explores why Christians are persecuted. He reveals Voltaire’s and Gibbon’s thoughts on how Christians were vilified and how attempts to rewrite history-to blame Christian persecution on Christians themselves!-originally surfaced. Moreover, you will see how modern attacks against Christians spring from six primary sources: atheism, radical Islam, Hindu nationalism, totalitarianism, academia, and Satanism. In the words of St. John Paul II, “The Church has once again become a Church of martyrs.”

  • Truly Truly I Say To You


    The most precious words this world has ever heard came from the voice of Jesus. “It is I, do not be afraid”; “I am the Light of the World”; “I go to Prepare a Place for You”; “It is finished.” These are just some of the powerful, life-renewing words spoken by Jesus in the first century. As we read them in John’s Gospel, the Holy Spirit makes these same words come alive in our hearts today.

    With devotions and prayers from Adam Ramsey, along with insights from the 19th-century “Prince of Preachers,” Charles Spurgeon, you will encounter Jesus through these pages and experience the transforming power and tender comfort of his voice.

    These 40 devotions are ideal for Lent, with two extra special reflections added for Easter Sunday and Monday. They can also be used at any time through the year, to deepen your own walk with Jesus.

    As Jesus’ words of grace and truth shine a light into your heart, you’ll learn more about yourself. But more importantly, you’ll learn more about him, as you marvel at his character and find yourself captivated by his presence.

  • Desert Of Compassion


    The desert, a landscape both severe and beautiful, embodies spiritual struggle and divine support.

    Jesus experienced forty days of testing and transformation in the rugged Judean desert. Whether disease, social injustice, personal loss, or other challenges have led you to the spiritual desert, it may seem doubtful that any good can come from hardship. Yet it was the arid wilderness of physical deprivation and soul-deep testing that prepared Jesus to live a life of devotion, courage, and merciful service to others. Deserts have much to teach about vulnerability, tenacity, and the interdependence of living beings.

    The season of Lent, based on Jesus’ forty days in the desert, calls you to navigate your own trials with trust in God and compassion for yourself. By doing so, you can learn to treat your dear ones, your neighbors, and all creatures with care contoured by wisdom.

    In these daily devotions for the Lenten journey, author Rachel M. Srubas draws on her life and learnings as a contemplative pastor, spiritual director, and desert dweller. Written in language both relatable and reverent, The Desert of Compassion provides daily Lenten sustenance inspired by sacred Scripture, present-day teachings, and personal experience. It is equally suitable for individual readers and spiritual formation groups.

  • Better World : Reflections On Peace And Fraternity


    We live today in an unstable and dangerous world. Countless people are plagued by war and fear and are oppressed by hatred and intimidation. The world is hungry for peace.

    Pope Francis has made great efforts to stop violence and hatred and continually calls the world to peace. A Better World is another invitation from the Holy Father to love one another and to work diligently for peace.

    In the homilies, addresses, and writings collected in this book, Pope Francis reminds us, as children of God, to be kind in our daily actions and compassionate toward others, even those who are different from us and whom we must accept with love. When conflicts arise, we are called to resolve them through dialogue and the quest for peace, not through hatred and war. Lasting peace is not the result of violent means but is achieved through dialogue and fraternity.
