  • 1 Ordinary Sunday

    $21.95

    Award-winning writer Paula Huston offers a rich spiritual reflection on the origin and meaning of the Catholic Mass.

    For Catholics, the Mass is the “source and summit of the Christian life,” as the documents of the Church put it. Yet many Catholics might confess to not understand in any depth what goes on in a typical celebration of the Eucharist. In One Ordinary Sunday Paula Huston guides us through a Mass at her home parish in a rural California town. Huston’s personal and spiritual reflections offer fresh and often unexpected insights into the profound mystery at the heart of the Catholic faith.

    A natural storyteller, Huston deftly illuminates what might seem either mysterious to those unfamiliar with the Mass or overly familiar to those who have lost an appreciation of its mystery. In the Mass “we are healed and restored and spiritually fed,” she writes. “We are unified and made whole as a people and as a Church. We get a little taste of heaven.”

  • Aquinass Lenten Meditations

    $17.95

    There’s a multitude of Lenten meditation books but only one that’s packed with the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas. Journey through Lent with the Church’s greatest philosopher-theologian. This unrivaled spiritual master will guide you in encountering Our Lord and experiencing the type of fruitful Lent that he often experienced.

    You will relish this magnificent treasury of sixty-three of Aquinas’s Scripture-based sermons specially selected for the holy season. From Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday, you’ll learn how to deepen your prayer life, conquer temptation, resist the evils incurred by sin, and equip yourself for spiritual battle.

    In the straightforward, logical language for which he is famous, Aquinas shows you how to detach yourself from the things of this world and refocus on the things above, reflecting on Our Lord and Our Lady as models.

    You will learn the importance of fasting to the preservation of chastity and how to perform acts that will increase your humility and purity. As you contemplate the example of Our Lord on the Cross, Aquinas will help you weed out vices and cultivate virtues to prepare for the joys of Heaven.

    Let the Angelic Doctor assist you in overcoming idleness and fostering a deeper devotion with stirring reflections on:

    *Ways in which the Blood of Jesus is precious and salvific

    *The confidence we should place in Our Divine Friend, even in sickness, suffering, and pain

    *How Our Lady suffered and how she personifies charity, patience, humility, obedience, and detachment

    *Why the pain suffered by Our Lord was the greatest pain possible in this life

    *Jesus’ fourfold humiliation on the Cross — and the fourfold exaltation it merited Him

    *How Christ manifested all virtues on the Cross, the “pulpit from which He taught all mankind”

    Also included are forgotten or little-known traditional feast days, such as the feast of the Holy Lance and the Nails of Our Lord and the feast of the Holy Winding Sheet.

    You will find rich meditations on Christ’s Passion and reflections for each day of Holy Week. Best of all, you will discover the greatest love story of all time: the Father who offered His only Son, and the Son who underwent every suffering and sacrificed His life for our redemption.

The mixture of Latin and Celtic Christian cultures, distilled and appropriated by the Germanic Anglo-Saxons, produced a distinctive English spiritual tradition which embraced kings and princesses, abbesses and monks, cowherds and poets, soldiers and beggars, and birds and animals. ‘It is possible through these passages to walk with these men and women as friends and see how their lives became filled with the life of Christ, in pain and desolation as well as in wonder, love, and praise.’

  • Fire Of Christs Love

    $13.95

    Why should we meditate on the cross? Because through the cross of Christ, we can begin to comprehend God’s all-consuming love for us. The short reflections in this book are taken from homilies presented by renowned evangelist Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa on Good Friday to the St. Peter’s Basilica over the last thirty years. Fr. Cantalamessa, who has been the preacher to the Papal Household since 1980, unfolds for us the mystery and the power of the cross. By willingly embracing the cross for our sake and then rising from the dead, Jesus has brought us salvation, healing, mercy, and the hope of eternal life. As Fr. Cantalamessa contemplates the intensity and reality of Christ’s love for us, he also shows us how to respond wholeheartedly with that same fire in our hearts.

  • Forgiving Mother : A Marian Novena Of Healing And Peace

    $18.99

    Do you want to be well? That’s what Jesus asked the sick man at Bethesda. Wouldn’t it seem obvious that he wanted healing since he’d lingered pool-side for decades? Why else would he have been there?

    Do you want to be well? Believe it or not, for a very long time, my answer to that question was, “no.” I wanted to be vindicated, excused, hidden, and even at times patronized for the wounds I’d suffered from my mother’s mental illness.

    Mary is the answer to our need for healing. She cares about the pain we bear because of the way we’ve been treated and hurt by our mothers. She cares not only about the fact that the pain is there, but also about how to help us heal from it.

    Do you want to be well? Do you really want to be well? Are you ready to go through the work of effecting that healing? I think you are, otherwise you never would have picked up this book.
