  • Our Lady Undoer Of Knots


    “The knot of Eve’s disobedience was loosed by the obedience of Mary. For what the virgin Eve had bound fast through unbelief, this did the virgin Mary set free through faith.”
    –St. Irenaeus of Lyons

    Few devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary have spread more in recent years than Our Lady, Undoer of Knots. When the faithful encounter trying moments, when all hope seems to be lost, they turn to their mother.

    “Come with me to my Son,” she tells us. And all is unbound.

    Through ordinary and everyday situations, rhymed verse, whimsical art, and subtle theology, this charming work–one of the first children’s books to celebrate this beloved devotion–will teach everyone in the family how to approach their mother when they are in need.

    Just as she untangled the knot of fallen humanity through her fiat, so Our Lady does for us in all our difficulties, both big and small, by teaching us to say yes to God.

    Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, pray for us!

  • For Real : Christs Presence In The Eucharist


    The teaching of Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist began with Jesus sharing with his apostles, followed by their education of early Church leaders, which extends to our priests and the Church of today. Throughout all of this time the baton never drops. The teaching has never changed from the original presentation of Jesus himself to the apostles gathered with him for the Last Supper.

    A cradle Catholic and former skeptic himself, Deacon Dennis Lambert presents evidence to radically change, affirm, or deepen your belief in the real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The book also provides a thought-provoking way to share the truth with others.

  • 1 Disciple At A Time


    What if the Church radically shifted the focus of her mission to making disciples one person at a time?

    Everett Fritz outlines a framework for one-to-one outreach that helps us develop as mentors in faith, furthering the Kingdom of God as Jesus commanded when he told us to go and make disciples. When we learn how to focus on a ministry of one, we will multiply our efforts to create a movement that meets the spiritual needs of many.

    Whether you’re someone who’s actively involved in professional or volunteer ministry or an everyday Catholic who wants share your faith, One Disciple at a Time reveals how you can live out your calling to spread the Gospel by focusing on forming disciples one at a time.

    Drawing on insights gleaned from his personal spiritual journey and work in Catholic parish ministry, Fritz–founder and executive director of Andrew Ministries–shares practical steps for transforming our approach to living our faith and sharing it with others. In this book, you will learn:

    *There is great power in a personal invitation because it becomes the seed to develop a relationship.

    *If you want to make a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ, you have to be committed to accompany them throughout their lifetime.

    *Lessons from Jesus’s relationship with Simon Peter can transform the way we mentor in faith.

    *Taking someone from disciple to sainthood requires assisting that person with the crosses that they bear, as well as witnessing to the reality of the cross in your own life.

    *Formation needs to include identifying the person’s God-given gifts and working with them to use those gifts to build up the Church.

  • Discovering Christ The Servant


    Because Jesus came not to be served but to serve (Mk 10:45), his Mystical Body, the Church, is essentially a servant Church. It’s precisely through this service that she carries out her mission.

    The ancient diaconate was instituted, and has been restored in our time, not simply to stand alongside priestly, religious, and lay ministry but to imbue and empower each with a renewed sense of service. Indeed, the Greek word diakonia, which is translated in English as “service,” can also be translated into the Latin word ministerium, translated in English as “ministry.” Thus, when we look at episcopal ministry, priestly ministry, religious ministry, or lay ministry, service is essential to all.

    Service is not something we do but someone we give: our very selves. It is an act of love rooted in a divine love already poured out for us. This book provides a radical but thoroughly consistent rethinking of the Christian life that takes up the tradition and builds upon it in a way that is both old and new.

  • Sisterhood : Giving And Receiving The Gift Of Friendship


    Let’s face it: Real-life friendship is hard! We find ourselves challenged by superficial #girltribe social media posts, so how can we really achieve authentic friendship? And is friendship even worth it?

    Sisterhood isn’t just a trend or unreachable goal; in fact, friendship with other women is a necessity. Why? Because we’re made for it. We’re created in the image and likeness of the triune God. “Relationship” is stamped into our spiritual DNA — just as God desires to be in relationship with us, he also longs for us to be in authentic relationship with others.

    Whether you’re in a steady place with the women in your life or you’re not confident at all when it comes to friendship with other women, each and every one of us always has room to grow in the art of friendship. In Sisterhood: Giving and Receiving the Gift of Friendship, Catholic wife, mom, author, and friend Chloe Langr offers a practical guide to discerning, developing, and keeping authentic friendships.

  • Reading The Church Fathers


    Heresies, schisms, culture of death, persecutions, excommunications … While reflective of headlines from today, these difficulties roiled Christians of the early Church as well. In fact, the earliest Church manual, the Didache,brought clarity to a range of moral issues that our culture continues to grapple with to this day.

    Here is one of the most lucid and comprehensive overviews of the Patristic period ever written. With simplicity and clarity, Dr. James Papandrea introduces you to all the major theologians, philosophers, and martyrs of the early Christian church and explains the theological principles that guided the Church from the New Testament era through the apologists, and, ultimately, to the development of the major doctrines. Best of all, he uniquely situates the teachings of the early Church Fathers against the social and cultural context of the Roman Empire and its relationship to the Church.

    Dr. Papandrea will introduce you to the gnostics and their influence on the early Church, as well as explain how Church mothers, such as Macrina the Younger, laid a foundation for the monastic life to come. You’ll learn how our understanding of the sacraments developed and when devotion to Our Lady and the saints emerged. You’ll also explore how the New Testament canon was formed as well as the criteria used to interpret early Christian writings.

    A must-have resource, Reading the Church Fathers offers helpful charts, recommended texts, and summaries of important theological concepts and doctrines. It also reveals:

    *How the early Church refuted heresies

    *How catechesis was taught and shared

    *The order of the liturgy in early Christianity

    *The marks of the early Church and the role of tradition

    *How apostolic succession was defined

    *What is meant by the development of doctrine

  • Science And The Miraculous


    Can miracles be proven by science? How does the Catholic Church validate claims of the supernatural?

    Some might say that miracles are a thing of the past, relegated to a more credulous and superstitious age before humanity fully embraced the certainty and exactitude of scientific study. According to author Michael O’Neill, the “Miracle Hunter”, true miracles are by definition rare, but still occur today. And in this present age of skepticism, where the worship of science and reason have pervaded the culture, the existence of the supernatural is to be appreciated now more than ever before.

    Though it may come as a surprise to some, the Catholic Church turns to science to assist in the investigation and validation of claims of supernatural phenomena and miracles that appear to violate the laws of nature and our common human experience.

    Science and the Miraculous takes readers through the Church’s rigorous investigation of miraculous occurrences, including:

    *healing miracles from life-threatening conditions;
    *statues that exude human tears;
    *Eucharistic hosts visually manifesting true flesh and true blood;
    *visionaries who see the Virgin Mary in an ecstatic state;
    *saints whose bodies lay in a state of perfect preservation for centuries;
    *living people whose bodies are marked by the wounds of Christ’s crucifixion;
    *and more . . .

    The Catholic Church employs a combination of strict, centuries-old criteria for evaluating proposed cases of miracles with the most modern methods of medical examination to arrive at explanations for the purportedly inexplicable. If natural causes can be attributed or if frauds and hoaxes can be exposed, the Church will uncover the truth.

    But if science can show that miracles can and do happen, what will you believe?

    While belief in the supernatural ultimately requires faith, discover in this thorough investigation how science is a gift from God to aid our faith, and to educate our minds about the truths our heart already knows.

  • Moral Reflections On The Book Of Job Volume 6 Books 28-35


    Gregory the Great was pope from 590 to 604, a time of great turmoil in Italy and in the western Roman Empire generally because of the barbarian invasions. Gregory’s experience as prefect of the city of Rome and as apocrisarius of Pope Pelagius fitted him admirably for the new challenges of the papacy. The Moral Reflections on the Book of Job were first given to the monks who accompanied Gregory to the embassy in Constantinople. This sixth volume, containing books 28 through 35, provides commentary on five chapters of Job, from 38:1 through 42:17. The present volume contains the Lord’s appearing to Job out of the whirlwind, the Lord’s two lengthy speeches to Job and Job’s responses, and, finally, the Lord’s rebuke to Job’s friends and restoration of Job’s fortunes. Finally, Gregory speaks of his intention in writing this long work and requests that his readers grant him their prayers and tears. Includes comprehensive indexes for volumes 1-6.

  • Tilling The Church


    Tilling the Church is a theology for the pilgrim church. In this book, Richard Lennan shows how the ecclesial community looks toward the fullness of God’s reign but lives within the flux of history, the site of its relationship to the trinitarian God. In this way, God’s grace “tills” the church, constantly refreshing the tradition of faith and prompting the discipleship that embodies the gospel. Tilling the Church explores the possibilities for a more faithful, just, and creative church, one responsive to the movement of grace. Fruitful engagement with grace requires the church’s conversion, the ongoing formation of a community whose words and actions reflect the hope that grace engenders.

  • Surfers Guide To The Soul


    For world-class surfer Bear Woznick, the ocean has always been the center of his universe. He’s spent his entire life with it; riding its waves, learning from it, loving it.b The ocean also nourishes the soul as Bear shows us on his surfboard.

    In Deep in the Wave, readers ride along with Woznick through the calmest of tides and most turbulent waves. Woznick’s portrayal of the beauty and power of the ocean is truly inspiring and showcases the profound meaning surfing has had on his life.

    From the way a surfboard is painstakingly crafted, to the faith and patience that is required to ride a monster wave, Woznick weaves his relationship to surfing with his relationship to God, relating how the two are often one in the same. Instead of standing on the shore with our toes in the surf, Woznick takes us on the board–to the deep water–to watch and wait–and, if need be, to paddle hard to survive.

  • New Faces New Possibilities


    Religious sisters have created educational and healthcare systems over the past two hundred years that have transformed the Catholic community in the United States. Through their ministry, sisters have served waves of immigrants and those pushed to the margins. The growing cultural diversity of newer sisters and the diminishing number of older sisters, therefore, is both a challenge and a creative moment to be critically examined.

    This book examines these changes in culture and ethnicity among sisters, the structural impact of diminishing numbers, and the creative response to this new reality for religious life in the United States. In it, sisters from a variety of generations, cultures, and institutes join with CARA researchers to examine and reflect on CARA’s recent research findings and their impact on the life and ministry of sisters today.

  • Open Wide My Heart


    Just before she died of brain cancer in April 2020, Macrina Wiederkehr gifted her friend and coauthor Joyce Rupp with one of the many journals she kept over the years where she reflected on scripture and her own spirituality. Rupp writes in the foreword for Open Wide My Heart, “I observed certain currents of yearning and faithfulness that remained throughout the decades: a thirst for an ever-fuller relationship with the Holy One; a tremendous respect for scripture as an incentive for spiritual transformation; a recognition of not being all she hoped to be regarding her inner growth; and a continual return to a belief in her essential goodness.”

    That is the essence of Open Wide My Heart, which pulls together two years of personal reflections by Wiederkehr, a beloved spiritual author, popular retreat leader, and Benedictine sister. These brief yet poignant writings serve as guideposts as you begin or deepen your scripture study and offer gentle direction for your faith and a better understanding of daily life.

    Wiederkehr also shares nuggets of spiritual wisdom she gained in her reading, including:

    *experiencing God in the everyday;
    *living fully present in the moment; and
    *accepting the grace that comes from God, other people in your life, and the world around you.

    Open Wide My Heart is an invitation to learn from a bestselling spiritual writer’s practice and witness her deeply meditative approach to scripture and life. In the process, you can grow in confidence in your own scripture reading.

  • Catholic Scientist Harmonizes Science And Faith


    Modernity, academia, and the media perceive and relentlessly advance a dichotomous, contradictory relationship between faith and science. However, from the time of Aristotle, it has been demonstrated that man is a rational being who reasons intellectually in a way that animals and technology cannot. Man is also a religious being, correlating himself to what is above and seeking answers to the ultimate questions of transcendence.

    In his definitive book A Catholic Scientist Harmonizes Science and Faith, Dr. Gerard Verschuuren draws from the reflections of St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine, St. John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, Dr. Peter Kreeft, and numerous scientists, such as Albert Einstein and Gregor Mendel, who reveal the essential connection between reason and religion.

    Dr. Verschuuren confirms the necessity of reasoning in scientific theory. Relying on true stories from scientific developments in medicine, astronomy, and physics, he asserts that the scientific method alone can’t explain the origins of the universe. By the same token, he decries blind faith and shows how science doesn’t threaten the Church. On the contrary: it confirms those truths that Christians have always believed.

    That is why the Father of Lies has always sought to pit faith against reason and science against revelation. Dr. Verschuuren explains how the progress of doubt, from agnosticism to atheism to antitheism, is not a result of increased scientific knowledge. Rather, it’s part of a diabolical attack on the Faith. The devil means to enthrone a new religion ? scientism ? in Christianity’s place.

    This attack can be repelled only by true religion and real science working together, hand in hand, as they always have.

    Clarifying the assumptions upon which science and religion are based, this cogent book reflects on how:

    *Authentic reasoning inevitably leads us closer to God and belief in His attributes

    *Both science and faith are guided by logic and deal with facts

    *Faith needs science to avoid fideism, and science requires belief

    *The New Atheism, including the views of Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins, is erroneous

    *Our thoughts should be “controlled by reality” and objective truth

    *Christianity helped produce modern scientific advancements

    *There is no “double truth” between evolution and faith and between the Big Bang theory and faith

  • Understanding The Bible

  • Way Of Beatitude


    What if we look at the things we see wrong in the world with empathy, dig below the surface of people’s disappointing actions to experience their pain, and understand hurtful words as a cry for consolation? What if we respond with sorrow instead of outrage and love instead of hate?

    We’d be living as Jesus taught us in the Beatitudes. Fr. Casey Cole, OFM–host of YouTube’s Breaking the Habit–wants you to embrace the pain caused by anger and division in the world, and then look to Jesus for hope through the Beatitudes.

  • Befriending Saint Joseph


    After Pope Francis declared 2020 the year of St. Joseph, interest in the patriarch of the Holy Family and patron of the Universal Church was heightened worldwide.

    In Befriending St. Joseph, popular blogger Deacon Greg Kandra leads you on a journey of imaginative exploration and spiritual renewal rooted in the few Bible stories where Joseph is written about. This book offers a fresh take on the centuries-old devotion known as the Seven Sorrows of St. Joseph and provides an opportunity to ponder Joseph’s role in our salvation and to become more like him.

    Although the Bible doesn’t record St. Joseph saying a single word, we know he became what God wanted him to be with patience, attention, trust, and prayer. The biblical account of Jesus’s life shows us that St. Joseph had faith in times of uncertainty and courage in times of danger. Kandra shows us Joseph as a gentle man, pure of heart, trusting in God, and a role model for those who feel unworthy or unready.

    Through guided reflections, Kandra helps you imagine what life may have been like for Joseph, Mary, and Jesus and offers guidance to help you better navigate your own life, with particular attention to trust, purity of heart, courage, and persistence in faith. Kandra invites you to:

    *trust the mystery of God when life seems shattered;
    *persist in caring for those you love, guide, and protect;
    *be courageous and compassionate in the face of suffering;
    *find strength to comfort others;
    *attend to those on the margins;
    *pray for the grace of endurance; and
    *expect to find Christ in unexpected places.

    Each chapter of Befriending St. Joseph includes a scriptural verse about Joseph that lies at the heart of the devotion, original prayers by Kandra, and questions for self-reflection, journaling, or faith sharing. The appendixes include additional prayers to St. Joseph and an adaption of the Seven Sorrows devotion for group prayer.

  • Catholic Pilgrimage Through American History


    Historian Kevin Schmiesing takes you to more than two-dozen sites and events that symbolize and embody America’s rich and sometimes tumultuous Catholic past, including the Santa Fe Trail, Gettysburg, and the Bourbon Trail. You’ll also meet both famous and infamous Catholics–including Augustus Tolton, Dr. Samuel Mudd, and Francis Cabrini–who impacted our nation’s history.

    The idea for A Catholic Pilgrimage through American History came from Schmiesing’s mother, he says. She turned every childhood vacation into a pilgrimage, purposely inserting religious sites into the family’s journey to places such as Niagara Falls, Washington, DC, or Myrtle Beach.

    Catholics have been part of the American experiment since the beginning–in founding the colonies and expanding the west, building education and health care systems, abolishing slavery, fighting on the front lines, and advancing science, technology, and space exploration. Each of the twenty-seven sites on Schmiesing’s virtual itinerary–including, the Washington Monument, Wounded Knee Creek, the University of Notre Dame, and Mission San Diego de Alcala–transports you to a significant time in US history and connects the dots to our Catholic heritage. You will meet notable Catholics such as John F. Kennedy, Black Elk, and Katharine Drexel, and learn more about their contributions to history.

    You will explore the various and sometimes conflicting roles Catholics have played in key periods and events through the stories of shrines, memorials, and other historic places including:

    *the Catholic Plymouth Rock–St. Mary’s City, Maryland;

    *the Bourbon Trail–Church of St. Thomas, Bardstown, Kentucky;

    *the Pope’s Stone–the Washington Monument in the District of Columbia;

    *a Catholic mission and a Native American tragedy: Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota; and

    *the home of the first Black priest–the churches of Quincy, Illinois.

  • Church And The Age Of Reformations 1350-1650


    In 1517, Augustinian monk Martin Luther wrote the infamous 95 Theses that eventually led to a split within the Catholic Church. The movement became popularly identified as the Protestant Reformation, but Church reform actually began well before the schism.

    In The Church and the Age of Reformations (1350-1650), Church history scholar Joseph Stuart and writer Barbara Stuart highlight the watershed events of a confusing period in history, providing a broader–and deeper–historical context of the era, including the Council of Trent, the rise of humanism, the formation of papal states, and the impact of the printing press. The Stuarts also profile important figures of the time including Thomas More, Theresa of Avila, Ignatius Loyola, and Francis de Sales, and give you the guidance they need to understand the deeper context and consequences of these tumultuous centuries.

  • Antichrist : The Final Campaign Against The Savior


    Fiction and nonfiction books and movies speculate about end-of-the-world scenarios, proposing a rogue’s gallery of corrupt leaders and a host of chilling, apocalyptic theories. Disillusioned by the crippled state of our Church and our world, people are increasingly placing faith in prophecies that claim to know details and dates about upcoming chastisements.

    Will the “final confrontation” include unprecedented bloodshed or the subtle trickery of seduction (or both)? Have the current intellectual, political, and sexual “liberation” movements – including within the Church – created the platform required for the Antichrist to emerge?

    In an age of diabolical disorientation, this captivating book provides much-needed clarity on relevant biblical prophecies – from Old Testament times to St. Paul and Revelation – and writings of early Church Fathers and Doctors of the Church, including Sts. Augustine, Gregory the Great, Jerome, and Thomas Aquinas.

    This prescient book will enlighten you on whether there is more than one Antichrist, the types of leaders and societies that Cardinal Newman believed would be forerunners of the Antichrist, and how long the Antichrist will reign.

  • Unraveling Gender : The Battle Over Sexual Difference


    In the modern era certain ideologies have appeared with growing rancor that threaten the truth and meaning of human sexuality. Gender ideology is one of the greatest moral errors of our times. It is essentially the mistaken notion that gender is not necessarily connected to the sex of the body, but is a personal construct. The Church in her wisdom has stood up to stem the tide of this harmful new attack.

    In this book, Dr. Grabowski lays out where gender ideology comes from and identifies its sources-the poisonous currents of modern secularism, the chaos of the sexual revolution, and the ever-expanding reach of technology. In the end, Unraveling Gender shows that what may seem like a new fad is actually the most recent manifestation of one of the oldest heresies in the Church’s history, one which is best refuted by the enduring beauty and clarity of her teaching about the body and the gift of sexuality.

    Drawing upon Scripture and Church teaching, this timely book equips parents, religious educators, and clergy with the information they need to confront this dangerous ideology with clarity, confidence, and charity. As gender ideology continues to spread its errors, infecting our culture like a deadly virus, this book is a must read for every Catholic.

  • Christian Social Principles


    In her penetrating exploration of Catholic Social Teaching, Sr. Mary Consilia O’Brien, O.P., Ph.D., offers the most clear-eyed description ever written on this foundational subject. She explores the Church’s authentic teachings on the dignity of the human person as well as man’s freedoms and obligations to society. She describes when individual liberties must transcend social control – and when they must not. Best of all, she explains the final purpose of society, to which all its activities must be oriented.

    Skillfully crafted to appeal to both students and adults, each chapter features a probe of the content, leavened by practical examples, excerpts from the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, quotes from encyclicals, as well as discussion questions and additional study resources. In Christian Social Principles, you’ll also learn:

    *The Church’s teachings on communism, liberalism, and capitalism

    *How free will is the source of our obligations to society

    *Why Communism is a natural offspring of Liberalism

    *How freedom of thought and action is a false concept that can degenerate into license

    *Why neither the “liberty” of Liberalism nor the “equality” of Communism can serve as the reliable cornerstone of a social order

    *Why no one can be both a sincere Catholic and a true Socialist

    *Why norms of morality must be universal in scope across society

    *Why the work of government will be of little avail without religion to enlighten the mind

    *Why justice alone can never bring about a union of hearts and minds

  • Spiritual Direction From Dante


    In Spiritual Direction from Dante: Yearning for Paradise, the Oratorian Father Paul Pearson provides a detailed but accessible spiritual commentary on the last volume of Dante’s masterpiece, Divine Comedy. Fr. Pearson takes readers step-by-step through the text, explaining the spiritual lessons Dante intends his readers to learn. These lessons are particularly important, both in Dante’s day and in our own, due to the watered-down image of heavenly bliss the world offers us. Dante’s Paradiso corrects this misunderstanding , showing the faithful a paradise that is more real and more fulfilling than anything we have experienced here on earth or even dreamt of.

    Father Pearson’s text is an indispensable companion to the poem for both the scholar and the neophyte. It brings Dante’s poem and its lessons into our modern context so that readers will discover:

    *our true individuality is not obliterated in heaven, but is allowed to continue, and is fostered and highlighted.

    *even as we struggle now, we are never alone – everyone in heaven is interested and involved in our salvation.

    *the human unity we strive for here (often unsuccessfully) is a shining fact there, with each person rejoicing in every other person’s joys and working together for the salvation of those still striving for heaven. There we are finally understood fully and appreciated.

    *all our human desires are fulfilled in heaven, not abandoned.

    Fr. Pearson, having already guided readers through the realms of hell and purgatory in this 3-part series, now brings before our eyes the saints and angels, the Virgin Mary, and the Blessed Trinity! But Spiritual Direction from Dante: Yearning for Heaven is more than a guide to the last book of Dante’s Divine Comedy. It is an introduction and an invitation to eternal happiness, an invitation that is just as compelling as it was 700 years ago when Dante wrote it.

  • Sanctify Them In Truth


    We live in a world that has become secularized, marked by ideology and partisanship. In such a world, how are we supposed to know what is right and wrong? As Christians, how are we supposed to approach the social issues of our day? With conflicting voices surrounding us, how can we hear and know the voice of Jesus Christ and receive His teachings?

    As Christians, we seek to live the way of the Lord Jesus, but that’s easier said than done. We want to demonstrate the Lord’s love and kindness to all men and women, but we’re faced with issues that cause us to discern what that looks like and how it’s virtuously expressed. We want to do what is right and good, but trying to determine right and wrong can at times be confusing and unsettling.

    The teaching authority of the Church is here to help. Appointed by Jesus Christ, our shepherds discern, interpret, and apply His teachings to our everyday lives.

    Sanctify Them in Truth, by Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, is an approachable, easy-to-read guide on eight of our most pressing social issues. The book applies divine wisdom and the guidance of the Church as it dissects oft-debated topics, presenting helpful teaching so that the reader knows how to navigate today’s contentious world with conviction and a clear conscience.

    The book answers:

    *Why is abortion above all other social issues in importance?
    *Can immigration be both moral and limited?
    *What is the Christian responsibility to the environment?
    *How are we called to approach the LGBTQ+ movement?
    *Is healthcare a human right?
    *When can artificial nutrition and hydration be suspended for a dying relative?
    *Is the Critical Race Theory within the bounds of justice?
    *Why can’t women be ordained priests?

    In all these matters, the truth of Christ is the foundation for any response. Fr. Kirby’s pastoral guidance helps to build that foundation in our intellects and in our wills, so that we can serve as a beacon for truth in a world that despises it.

  • Mychal Judge : Take Me Where You Want Me To Go


    The world came to know the Franciscan priest Mychal Judge through the bravery and self-sacrifice he displayed during the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001. But long before his lifeless body was carried out of the rubble (a moment captured in a photograph that became immediately famous), and before he was officially designated “Victim 0001” of that day’s attacks, Fr. Judge was, to a great many people, a beloved priest known for his compassion and faith.

    In Mychal Judge, Francis DeBernardo offers a spiritual biography that will move and fascinate readers. It details the personal history and experiences-including his Irish-American upbringing, his struggles with alcoholism, his care for the marginalized, and his ministry to fire fighters-that formed the man who ultimately died running into the North Tower to try to save and minister to the terrified and the dying. Whether meeting him in these pages for the first time or getting to know him better, readers will encounter in Fr. Judge a figure they will not soon forget.

  • Prayer 101 : Foundation For Faith And Formation


    Prayer 101 is both an introduction and a complete course on reaching out to God for His mercy or strength. Teresa A. Jones addresses seemingly simple questions like What is Prayer? but delves deeply into why and how we seek intercession from heaven for love and guidance.

    Using real life examples, Jones applies the lessons of the Bible and dissects the intricacies of prayers we sometimes repeat from rote memorization. With a complete vocabulary of the elements of prayer, and reflections following each chapter, readers will find themselves drawn into more spiritual communications.

    In the Scriptures, God repeatedly called his people to pray and He continues to call us today. This connection with God can take many different forms; seeking, talking, listening, meditating, crying out, interceding, and more. Not only are there several forms for prayer, there are many ways of understanding these very words and of putting them into practice.

  • Set The World On Fire


    Only four women in the two thousand-year history of the Church–Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Siena, and Hildegard of Bingen–have the distinction of being named Doctors of the Church because of their impact on the faith.

    In Set the World on Fire, bestselling author, retreat leader, and spiritual director Vinita Hampton Wright offers a four-week personal retreat that immerses you in the dramatic lives, historical eras, and groundbreaking ideas of these formidable saints and invites you to develop the grit, humility, pragmatism, hope, joy, and vision these women possessed.

    Each week of your retreat begins with weekend reading and prayer to introduce the saint and the primary topic of the chapter, followed by five days of morning and evening prayer. Much of the text comes from the saint’s own writings. Scripture, reflection questions, and suggestions for action are designed to help you engage personally with the saint and her wisdom for living your faith.

    Each week offers a unique and in-depth experience of the saint and her unique gifts to the Church:

    *Week one: St. Therese of Lisieux–the young Carmelite nun whose autobiography sent ripples across Christendom–will teach you to love God through her Little Way.

    *Week two: St. Teresa of Avila–a Carmelite who spent years reforming her order and gave to the world a spiritual masterpiece called The Interior Castle–will instruct you in trusting your personal experience of God.

    *Week three: St. Catherine of Siena–a Third-Order Dominican who poured out her life for people in need but also gave astute, sharp direction to Church leaders–will guide you to live every moment with courage through the love of truth.

    *Week four: St. Hildegard of Bingen–a Benedictine abbess whose spiritual visions led to books, poetry, music, art, and early scientific discovery–will show you how to engage life with passion and creativity.

    Each woman’s experience of God, understanding of spirituality, and timeless wisdom gained her the title Doctor of the Church, which indicates that through her life, research, study, and writing, she has deepened and advanced the faith.

    “This is a story of how Catholic faith accompanied my family through the sickness and death of my elderly parents. What could mistakenly be seen as a downward spiral was actually upward. As my parents were called home to God those around them caught a glimpse of heaven.

  • Let Us Dream


    In this uplifting and practical book, written in collaboration with his biographer, Austen Ivereigh, the preeminent spiritual leader explains why we must-and how we can-make the world safer, fairer, and healthier for all people now.

    In the COVID crisis, the beloved shepherd of over one billion Catholics saw the cruelty and inequity of our society exposed more vividly than ever before. He also saw, in the resilience, generosity, and creativity of so many people, the means to rescue our society, our economy, and our planet. In direct, powerful prose, Pope Francis urges us not to let the pain be in vain.

    He begins Let Us Dream by exploring what this crisis can teach us about how to handle upheaval of any kind in our own lives and the world at large. With unprecedented candor, he reveals how three crises in his own life changed him dramatically for the better. By its very nature, he shows, crisis presents us with a choice: we make a grievous error if we try to return to some pre-crisis state. But if we have the courage to change, we can emerge from the crisis better than before.

    Francis then offers a brilliant, scathing critique of the systems and ideologies that conspired to produce the current crisis, from a global economy obsessed with profit and heedless of the people and environment it harms, to politicians who foment their people’s fear and use it to increase their own power at their people’s expense. He reminds us that Christians’ first duty is to serve others, especially the poor and the marginalized, just as Jesus did.

    Finally, the Pope offers an inspiring and actionable blueprint for building a better world for all humanity by putting the poor and the planet at the heart of new thinking. For this plan, he draws not only on sacred sources, but on the latest findings from renowned scientists, economists, activists, and other thinkers. Yet rather than simply offer prescriptions, he shows how ordinary people acting together despite their differences can discover unforeseen possibilities.

    Along the way, he offers dozens of wise and surprising observations on the value of unconventional thinking, on why we must dramatically increase women’s leadership in the Church and throughout society, on what he learned while scouring the streets of Buenos Aires with garbage-pickers, and much more.

    Let Us Dream is an epiphany, a call to arms, and a pleasure to read. It is Pope Francis at his most personal, profound and passionate. With this book and

    In this volume from the Fathers of the Faith series, you’ll be introduced to Saint Irenaeus of Lyons. Who was he? What did he teach? Where and when did he live? Why is he an important figure in the history of the Church?

    In this accessible, bite-sized introduction, renowned author, speaker, and television host Mike Aquilina gives an overview of Irenaeus’s life as a second-century Greek and the historical surroundings that affected his life and thought.

His foundational works include Against Heresies and The Demonstration of the Apostolic Preaching, and their relevance endures today.

    More than 1,800 years after Ireneaus’ death, the U.S. bishops voted unanimously in agreement with a French initiative that Irenaeus be named a doctor of the Church, testament to the importance of his writings and teachings. In 2019, the bishops’ approval was forwarded to the Vatican for consideration by Pope Francis.

    In 2018, Betsy Johnson’s life went sideways. She was diagnosed with breast cancer, had to undergo chemo and radiation, and was asked for a divorce she didn’t want.

  • Choosing Forgiveness : Unleash The Power Of God’s Grace


    To say that offering forgiveness is a challenge is an understatement. Forgiveness is tough! Forgiveness is often messy. Forgiveness doesn’t feel good to most of us. And when it comes to the biggest, deepest hurts in life, forgiveness can seem impossible.

    Some hurts are the everyday, garden-variety irritations we endure for having to live in the company of other human beings who lose their tempers, get up on the wrong side of the bed, say nasty things, are ungrateful, selfish, and irritable. Some hurts are of a magnitude that far transcend these — degradation, exploitation, abandonment, rejection, humiliation, racism, bullying, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. But with God’s grace, even in those most difficult cases, forgiveness is possible.

    In Choosing Forgiveness, Fr. Thomas Berg and Dr. Timothy G. Lock are your guides on the way toward forgiveness through the grace of God. This book will help you discover the pathway to healing, peace, and interior freedom, releasing you and those who have wronged you from the bondage of unforgiveness.

  • Walking Together : A Primer On The New Synodality


    What is synodality, and why does it matter to ordinary Catholics today? The Second Vatican Council (1962-65) shone a light on the idea of all the baptized – the whole People of God – walking, working and discerning together to further their mission as Christians. More recently, Pope Francis has brought the Church’s teaching in this area into sharper focus, calling synodality “an essential dimension of the Church.” This user-friendly guide explores this fascinating topic while preparing, encouraging and guiding readers to take part in diocesan and regional consultations leading up to the Synod on Synodality in Rome in 2023. Through this global consultation process, lay voices can be an important part of the conversation with official Church leaders as we shape the future Church together.

It affirms black strivings for freedom as consistent with divine will despite those strivings’ branding as iconoclastic and ungodly by the white Christian establishment.

Highlights: Travels around the world, including Tanzania and the Soviet Union; arrest with the farmworkers at age 75; a standoff with the IRS over refusal to pay federal income tax; the end of the Vietnam War; speaking at the Eucharistic Congress; opening a new house of hospitality for homeless women; and the slow, inexorable journey toward the culmination of her “pilgrimage” in 1980. After the tumult of the 1960s, Dorothy welcomed in the 70s the signs of constructive work, pointing to an alternative society. These writings, from her last years, represent a moving testament to a life among the poor, her work as a prophetic peacemaker, her model as a new kind of saint for our times.

  • Heavens Are Telling The Glory Of God


    Building on the work of Teilhard de Chardin, the New Cosmology integrates scientific facts and theories, including discoveries about the expanding universe and evolution, and proposes that creation is developing into greater complexity. But how are we to understand concepts like “original sin” and “redemption” if creation isn’t complete and humanity is still in process? How does one “retrofit” religious tradition and Scripture into this scenario? Is there room for the historical Jesus in the New Cosmology? While a ready concern for all Christians, this question has unique implications for women religious whose lives are centered on the person and mission of Jesus Christ. How is a Catholic sister to understand her vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience in light of a cosmology in which the need for redemption and the role of Jesus are significantly redefined?

    The Heavens Are Telling the Glory of God probes these questions and offers possible answers. Beginning with the experiences of women religious and their encounter with the New Cosmology or Universe Story, this book seeks to mediate among the various perspectives and proposes how informed and reflective engagement with science, tradition, and theology can bridge the generational divides and foster a spirituality that is both emergent and incarnational.

  • True Obedience In The Church


    Pope Benedict XVI affirmed the ongoing growth and perpetual validity of the Traditional Latin Mass, insisting that “what earlier generations held as sacred remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful.”

    However, with the 2021 release of Traditionis Custodes, his successor has declared precisely the opposite, sending shockwaves through the Church by calling for the restriction and eventual suppression of her most beautiful and venerable form of worship – and the one experiencing the most dramatic and impassioned growth.

    What is a conscientious Catholic to do?

    In this pivotal book, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski offers an essential treatise on the question of obedience in the Church-whence it derives and how it is to be properly and prudently understood and lived. He explores St. Thomas Aquinas’s guidelines on the subject, what type of obedience is necessary for salvation, and which types are lawful and unlawful. Can there be situations where the usual structures of obedience become impediments to, rather than facilitators of, the Church’s mission and the good of souls? Have there been instances in Church history where faithful priests have exercised their ministry in violation of ordinary canonical norms? How should the clergy respond if the traditional Latin Mass is forbidden to them or if it were to be declared “abrogated”? What is the proper role of conscience and how are liberal and conservative views of it defective?

    Other questions on obedience that Dr. Kwasniewski deftly engages include:

    *Is it ever licit for individuals to follow Enlightenment ideology and be their own authority?

    *What should you do when your superior instructs you to do something in contravention of God’s law?

    *Why is opposing the traditional liturgy equivalent to opposing the work of the Holy Spirit and harming the Church’s common good?

    *Are Catholics required to live in blind obedience, even in situations of anarchy or breakdown, corruption or apostasy?

    *Can Catholics who strive to preserve traditional beliefs and practices ever be credibly denounced as disobedient revolutionaries?

    *Why are unjust laws acts of violence?

  • Desecrators : Defeating The Cancel Culture Mob And Reclaiming One Nation Un


    The enemy is no longer hidden in the dark but instead operates in broad daylight. Its attacks on Americans are clear and intensifying: cancel culture, wokeness, public shaming, urban violence, “whiteness,” and critical race theory. The enemy also seeks to undermine the sacredness of human life, failing to provide basic protection for the lives of the unborn. This enemy is called the Desecrators. The Desecrators tear down not only monuments but human nature, the biblical-natural conception of marriage, the family, parental rights, fact-based education, traditional moral values, and the Church. The Desecrators are taking over the media, publishing, educational institutions, corporate boards, labor unions, amateur and professional sports, foundations, and professional associations ranging from the American Medical Association to the Chamber of Commerce. They leave nothing untouched.

    In this powerfully provocative book, Deal W. Hudson and Matt Schlapp provide firsthand accounts of the Desecrators’ actions and intentions, including their remarkably angry and uncharitable treatment of President Donald Trump, which Hudson and Schlapp uniquely observed. The authors also describe how Catholics have been stifled for years because many bishops have failed to confront pro-abortion Catholic politicians. But fortunately, there is hope. As Hudson and Schlapp lay bare the Desecrators’ path of destruction, they also lay out a plan for the faithful to turn things around. Here is a book that will embolden all people of faith and good will to make their voices heard once again in the public square and political realm by countering the enemy with reason, faith, and hope. Here is a vision to build up rather than tear down.

  • Beckoning : A Novel


    Tabby Long is a non-Christian girl in a Catholic school whose world gets turned upside down when her dad, who has never been a man of faith, experiences a miraculous healing on Good Friday. Her father’s dramatic religious conversion alienates her mother, who deserts the family. In her struggle to understand what has happened to her family, Tabby follows the suggestion of her school’s religion teacher, and she begins spending time reading Scripture while in Eucharistic Adoration.

    Following the practice taught by Saint Ignatius of Loyola, she inserts herself into the biblical stories she reads. Through this process, she “time travels” to first-century Jerusalem, where she is Tabitha Longinus, the daughter of the centurion Gaius Cassius Longinus, who pierces the side of the crucified Jesus, incurs a spontaneous healing, and undergoes immediate conversion. Tabitha is a Gentile girl with Jewish friends and a mother who can’t accept her husband’s newfound (and dangerous) faith.

    When her mother flees to Rome and her father retires from the army and leaves Jerusalem, Tabitha finds herself alone in the holy city, her life in jeopardy for having entered a part of the Temple that is off-limits to Gentiles. She is drawn into belief in Jesus through her friends who are close to the Apostles, even as she struggles to devise a way to save and reunite her family — a duty that consumes her in her modern-day life as well.

    Tabitha’s experiences are rooted in the stories found in the first ten chapters of the Acts of the Apostles. On the last of several days of her Scripture meditations, Tabby emerges from Adoration with a newfound faith and clarity about how her family can be reunited and healed, all with the help of the Lord.

  • Lifetime Of Love


    If you ask legendary football coach Lou Holtz about his greatest accomplishment, he doesn’t talk about winning a national championship at the University of Notre Dame. Instead, he’s most proud of his fifty-nine-year marriage to Beth and raising their four successful children together.

    In A Lifetime of Love, Holtz offers couples young and old practical advice on marriage and parenting gleaned from his fifty-nine year marriage. He shares stories from he and Beth’s life away from the football field that reveal the couple’s deep faith in God and commitment to each other and their children.

    The Holtzes faced many challenges throughout their marriage: Lou’s coaching jobs meant he was often away from home and caused their family to move multiple times. Beth suffered a long battle with illness. Through it all their marriage–and family–remained strong because of the practical lessons they learned as they rode the ups and downs of life.

    In this inspiring story, you’ll find Lou and Beth’s powerful examples for successful marriage and parenting, including:

    *Find ways to connect daily.
    *Make sure your children feel loved and appreciated.

  • Deceiver : Our Daily Struggle With Satan


    Fr. Livio Fanzaga, the Rome-educated, Vatican-endorsed writer and director of Europe’s largest Catholic radio network, warns: Efforts to soft-pedal the reality and continuous threat of the devil have left many Catholics “unarmed and unprepared” to resist him. But the question is: How does Satan tempt and deceive us? And how can we see through and resist him?

    In The Deceiver: Our Daily Struggle with Satan, Fr. Fanzaga confidently guides you through everything the Catechism, Sacred Scripture, and the wisdom of the saints tell us about the wiles and antics of the devil. You’ll come to understand why evil exists, and you’ll explore real-life examples of how the enemy tempts and ensnares us. The Deceiver masterfully unmasks the devil’s seductive plan to create a kingdom of his own in your heart, ruled by pride, sensuality, greed, anger, fear, violence, and destruction.

    Most importantly, Fr. Fanzaga provides you with the weapons you need to combat the darkness of the enemy and the seven capital vices. “Satan wants to buy you at a cheap price, but Jesus has poured out His blood in order to obtain your soul,” reflects the author.

    These pages correct many of the most common misconceptions about Satan while shedding important light on the end times. They also reveal:

    *The strategy of the evil one in attacking our minds and hearts
    *Why sin is so alluring
    *How we can help – and harm – others on their way to salvation
    *How you can use the light of God to expose evil
    *How to be on constant guard against temptation and Satan’s traps
    *The proper roles of repentance and mortification
    *The keys to opening your soul to grace and discernment

    Fr. Fanzaga warns us in this stunning book: “In a cultural climate that excludes the supernatural, the devil acts without being noticed. In a context of life in which God and His moral law are denied, Satan moves like a fish in water. Souls without light and deprived of the weapons of the holy battle are doomed.”

    The Deceiver will equip you with the weapons you need to defeat Satan while opening your eyes to the miracles of God’s healing love as you prepare for eternity.

  • Therese De Lisieux


    In 1895, at the Carmel of Lisieux, sister Therese of the Child Jesus, following the order of her Prioress, her own sister Pauline, undertakes to write her life story. At first, The Little Flower was Therese Martin, a hypersensitive child, following her mother’s premature death. When she joins the Carmel order of her sister Pauline, who in many aspects replaced her mother, a strange illness takes over her and interferes with her abilities. But the miraculous smile of a Virgin Mary statue sparks off her swift recovery. But that is not all – Therese receives a second blessing on Christmas Eve, and overcomes her hypersensitivity. From then on, and in her own words, she starts “to run like a giant”, and obtains a derogation to enter the Carmel of Lisieux at the premature age of 15. She dies of tuberculosis on September 30th, 1897, leaving her burning, passionate autobiography, The Story of a Soul.

    At dawn on the day she was born, Therese Martin receives from a child the promise to become a rose one day. Twenty-four years later, at the Carmel of Lisieux, she promises “to let fall a shower of roses” upon her death. Mysteriously followed by this mystical leitmotiv, Therese lets herself be consumed by love until her very last breath. According to her, to love is to give all. In a century still marked by jansenism, she rediscovers Divine Mercy and invents a spiritual childhood path, which will later make her a Doctor of the Church. After Joan of Arc, whom she deeply admired, she is the Second Patron of France.

  • Devil In The Castle


    We often think of demons appearing only in extravagant and extraordinary manifestations or working only through “bad” people. But the truth is more frightening than that. Most demonic activity takes place undetected, under the radar, and can even be hidden in our own prayer lives and in the churches where we attend Mass. Subtlety, illusion, and deceit are the preferred tactics of Satan’s army of fallen angels, and they are waging an invisible battle for souls – right now – within and around us all.

    With St. Teresa of Avila’s masterpiece The Interior Castle as his guide, bestselling author Dan Burke takes you on an illuminating journey through the seven levels of spiritual progress, explaining what God is accomplishing within your soul at each stage, as well as the finely tailored demonic strategies applied to throw you off your path.

    You’ll learn how the devil is as active in your prayer life as you are, and how the saints were able to counter Satan as he adapted his schemes to correspond with where they were on their spiritual journeys.

    By discovering the myriad challenges St. Teresa faced and the remedies she employed to advance the spiritual progress of her soul, you’ll know precisely what to expect as you progress in your current state to your final spiritual destination. You’ll also learn:

    *The marks of authentic contemplative encounter with God
    *Why God uses dryness in prayer to advance the progress of our souls
    *How to know if you’re still in the “Purgative Way”
    *How desolation can work for the good of the soul
    *Why it’s dangerous to assume that your decisions are correct if you feel at peace
    *How to fight distraction in prayer
    *The 11 ways to test the authenticity of charismatic gifts

  • Homeboy Way : A Radical Approach To Business And Life


    Leading with heart, authenticity and purpose, Thomas Vozzo provides a clear path to a new bottom line–including 55 rules to break–bringing the Homeboy Way to life as the perfect anecdote to the massive tidal currents of social injustice and inequities.

    By every traditional measurement of success, Vozzo was a clear winner. In his world of billion-dollar revenues and million-dollar profits, he knew exactly what shareholders wanted and how to get it for them.

    Then, through a series of fateful events, Vozzo landed as CEO of Homeboy Industries, the most successful gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the country, founded by Jesuit priest Greg Boyle. “I arrived at Homeboy at a time when I needed to learn more about myself and my life’s journey,” Vozzo writes. “And after 8 years of working with the poor, forgotten, and demonized people of our society, I’ve come to learn that I didn’t really know as much about life as I thought.”

    Vozzo’s enlightening journey leads to his recognition that a radical approach is needed in business and in life: “What Homeboy has taught me is that we need to do business differently . . . . We need to bust up the system, swim upstream, avoid herd mentality.”

    Blending personal stories of his day-to-day with Fr. Greg and the Homies along with counterintuitive business ideas that are changing lives for the better, Vozzo shows you how you can live, lead, and shake things up with toughness, determination, compassion, and grit.

    That’s the Homeboy Way.

    100% of author royalties go to support the mission of Homeboy Industries.

  • Luminous : A 30-day Journal For Accepting Your Body Honoring Your Soul And


    What if your body could be a good and true part of your spiritual life?

    Every day, women are inundated with internal and external messages that pit us against our own bodies, resulting in dissatisfaction, shame, and an inability to experience our bodies as connected to our souls. We long to break these chains and reclaim the sacredness of our flesh and bones, but lack the tools to do so–keeping us stuck in harmful cycles of self-loathing.

    In Luminous: a 30-Day Journal for Accepting Your Body, Honoring Your Soul, and Finding Your Joy, author Shannon K. Evans offers women the chance to reflect on the connection between our bodies and our souls, to question the lies we have swallowed about things like aging and weight gain, and to dare to imagine a vibrant spiritual life that radiates from the inside out.

  • Dies Irae : The Sequence Of The Mass For The Dead


    A sign will appear in the sky before the glorious return of Christ the King. Angelic trumpets will sound, and the dead will arise. Souls who humbly wait in expectation will rejoice and enter into heavenly rest. Those who reject God will cry in terror, as they enter the eternal flames.

    “Dies Irae” (day of wrath), called “a musical gem even without the music” and “the giant among hymns,” was composed by Thomas of Celano, a companion and the first biographer of St. Francis of Assisi. First written in Latin, it has been translated hundreds of times into many languages and is regarded even by secular experts as one of the greatest masterpiece of Western poetry.

    In this reprint of his classic work, Msgr. Nicholaus Gihr elucidates Dies Irae: The Sequence of the Mass for the Dead for devotional reading and meditation. Although we do not know when the end of the world and the final judgment will come, each soul will face a particular judgment upon his death. Drawing from the Bible, the Liturgy of the Church, and the writings of the saints, Msgr. Gihr grandiloquently reflects upon the beauty and insights of this renowned lyric poem and chant, allowing the reader to dwell upon the soul’s final journey in a way that is both convicting and inspiring. Msgr. Gihr’s reflections challenge and spur us on; amid pain and suffering, his words comfort and uplift.

    As “the Day” draws near, Rev. Gihr encourages readers to:

    *keep watch, as in Advent, and cast off sloth

    *fulfill even the smallest duties with intentionality

    *guard against idle conversations and indifference

    *reflect upon the things of Heaven

    *remember that thoughts, actions, and inactions will be revealed

    *repent, serve the poor, and show and receive God’s mercy

  • Benedict 16th : Defender Of The Faith


    Pope Benedict XVI will go down in Church history as one of the greatest popes. In this heartfelt defense of Pope Benedict’s words and works, a tribute to his life and legacy and a homage to his sanity and sanctity, Joseph Pearce’s biography provides an unforgettable encounter with this great historical figure.

    As the defender of the Faith, Pope Benedict XVI fought tirelessly and largely successfully against the forces of secularism first as the indomitable Ratzinger and then as the incomparable supreme pontiff. As an uncompromising defender of the dignity of the human person, he fought the wickedness of the world in his unremitting battle against the dictatorship of relativism and its culture of death. Within the Church, he fought against the spirit of the world in his war on modernism and its worship of the spirit of the age, restoring the splendor of truth in his defense of orthodoxy and the splendor of the liturgy in his defense of tradition. Years from now, Catholics will still look back on Pope Benedict’s enduring legacy with enormous gratitude. For he successfully steered the barque of Peter in charity and truth against the evil tides that sought to engulf the Church.

  • Ever Ancient Ever New


    The Church is enduring one of the worst crises in her history. There has been a collapse in the number of laity, clergy, and religious participating in the Catholic faith. According to the Index of Leading Catholic Indicators: The Church Since Vatican II, approximately 460 million Catholics have left the Faith since Vatican II. Not only is there a crisis in participation, there are a plethora of surveys which reveal the extent of heterodox teachings in the modern United States Church.

    Despite this rapid decline in Catholic demographics, there is hope. A recent study conducted by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter found that while Novus Ordo (that is, the 1969 Mass of Pope Paul VI) parishes have been shrinking, parishes that offer the Latin Mass have been growing. Another study conducted by Dr. Joseph Shaw found that the average traditional parish has larger family sizes, younger attendees, and higher male attendance. What is the explanation for this?

    In Ever Ancient, Ever New, millennials enthralled with the traditional devotions of our Faith which have been left largely abandoned since Vatican II explain this phenomenon. These authors include Alexander Tschugguel, Stephanie Nicholas, as well as Timothy, and Stephanie Gordon.

    Ever Ancient, Ever New offers the path forward for the Church’s future: her past.

  • Imagine You Walked With Jesus


    Contemplative, or imaginative, prayer is a method of meditative prayer developed by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in which you imagine yourself as a character in a Bible story, experiencing the events described in the passage as if you were actually there.

    In Imagine You Walked with Jesus, you’ll be introduced to contemplative prayer through forty episodes from the Gospels. Each entry includes:

    *A brief introduction to the Bible text, with vivid details to aid your imagination and place the text in a larger interpretative context

    *An introductory prayer

    *The full text of the Bible passage

    *Journaling prompts

    As you prayerfully immerse yourself in the Bible passages in this book, you’ll be invited to draw on your imagination to rewrite the story from your own perspective: what you saw and heard, your feelings and emotions, and how you interacted with Jesus and the other people present in the story.

    Saint Ignatius taught that the imagination can be an instrument of prayer. By imagining how we would respond to a particular biblical episode, we can respond to God’s word in a deeper, more meaningful way — and perhaps hear what God has to say to us, too.

  • Whats Wrong With The World

  • Greatest Commandment : A Fulton Sheen Anthology On Love


    In modernity, the word love is one of the most commonly misused and abused in our language. Devoid of order, misconceptions about love run rampant, steeped as we are in narcissism, secular humanism, relativism, and hedonism. Separated from God, society tragically propagates a notion of love that is, in truth, the antithesis of authentic love.

    Now more than ever we need Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen’s wisdom, wit, and logic to refute these errors. In our sightless, irrational, and deeply polarized world, his prescient words elucidate the most divisive issues of our time. Mindful that we are all children of God, Archbishop Sheen decries anti-Semitism, racism, and sexism. He also explains what real tolerance means and why anti-hate campaigns don’t work.

    The Greatest Commandment is a timely reprint of Archbishop Sheen’s two seminal books Love One Another and God Love You. This anthology of his bestselling reflections also contains quotes and prayers that he compiled to foster ecumenism and societal unity. Drawing on Sacred Scripture, the writings of the saints, and philosophy, Archbishop Sheen explains:

    *The meaning of love in light of the Holy Trinity
    *Why God created us to love – and to be loved
    *The three types of love and the nine ingredients to charity
    *How Heaven is the ultimate fulfillment of our joy, desire, and love
    *Why love cannot exist without truth
    *How we give the greatest glory to God at Mass by uniting ourselves to Christ

    A treasure to contemplate, The Greatest Commandment expounds upon our deep-seated need to love God and implore His mercy by developing a personal relationship with Him through Sacred Scripture and the Sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist and Confession. God’s loving quest for our souls in turn impels us to love our neighbor. Love is a decision and requires sacrifice; it is the total gift of self for another. Our witness aids the disillusioned in finding their way to God. By cooperating with God’s Love, we will bring about the restoration of the world.

  • Catholic Mass : Steps To Restore The Centrality Of God In The Liturgy


    We are going through a period of liturgical exile, explains Bishop Athanasius Schneider in this enlightening book, and the vast proliferation of modern abuses are crying out for liturgical reform. The primary source of most modern abuses, he declares, is man’s narcissistic tendency to idolize himself instead of paying homage to God.

    In what is sure to be seen as one of the most impressive and authoritative books ever written on the Catholic Mass, Bishop Schneider reestablishes what Catholics have known for centuries but have largely forgotten today: that the Mass is the highest form of Christian prayer, which enables us to express with exterior worship our interior belief.

    He describes how saints such as Padre Pio and John Vianney helped the faithful enter into a profound spiritual experience during Mass, and he explains why the Mass should serve as a means to lift our hearts to God so we can surrender to His will. You’ll come to understand why the rubrics are vital to preserving the authenticity of the liturgy, and you’ll learn why architecture, music, sacred art, and even incense are vital symbols that direct our attention to Heaven. You’ll also learn:

    *How to recollect and listen to God’s Word properly
    *The keys to lifting your heart and surrendering to God’s will at Mass
    *Why it’s essential to celebrate the Mass ad orientem
    *How following the rituals assists you in contemplating the spiritual
    *Ways you can unite yourself to the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross
    *The most profitable ways of spending time in thanksgiving following Holy Communion

  • Unforgettable : How Remembering God’s Presence In Our Past Brings Hope To O


    From beloved spiritual writer and Catholic leader Gregory Floyd comes a moving meditation on the power of memory and how God is often more clearly seen when we look back.

    This is a book about memory, about what stays in the mind, and why. It is a book about the presence of God in our lives and the sights, sounds, words, and experiences that become unforgettable. Beginning with a single word he heard in the middle of the night–one that changed his life–this powerful memoir by Gregory Floyd asks the question: without memory, who are we? It is a meditation on beauty, marriage, family, and prayer, asking of the memories that each implants: what do they reveal? Where do they lead? –and witnessing to their potential to draw us to God.

  • Immersion : A Pilgrimage Into Service


    Immersion: A Pilgrimage into Service is a resource for those discerning or undergoing an immersive service experience or post-graduate volunteer service program. It utilizes recent Catholic social thought, Scripture, an Ignatian paradigm of service-reflection and Christian spirituality. This book helps readers to identify and navigate their innermost call to service by providing tools for reflection and discernment. It also challenges harmful attitudes that can reinforce unhealthy uses of privilege and power and perpetuate historically deleterious impacts on host communities through cultural and racial hegemony. A book which invites reflection on the motives, potential pitfalls, and outcomes of immersion and service programs is timely as the United States grapples with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic and a greater sense of the need for racial justice. Despite the vast resources used to sustain immersion and post-graduate volunteer programs, there are few resources to guide students, their parents, team leaders, discerning post-graduate volunteer participants, and program directors through the personal, social, and spiritual transformation that is sparked by these experiences. Immersion: A Pilgrimage into Service fills that void.

  • Saint Mary Of Egypt


    From its origins in the fourth and fifth centuries, first in monastic circles and then in wider Christian communities, the story of Mary of Egypt was wildly popular. From early Christianity through the medieval periods, from Egypt to Scandinavia, verse lives in Greek, Latin, and vernacular languages portray her as the model of repentance. Continuously venerated in the liturgy and icons of the Orthodox Churches, she is now seldom known in the West. This modern verse life and the accompanying essay reintroduces St. Mary’s extraordinary life, its theological and spiritual implications, and its remarkable depiction of gender complementarity.

  • Braving The Thin Places


    A “thin place” is where God’s grace is waiting to happen.

    Your thin place might be an important threshold, a soul friendship, a fresh chapter in your own life story, a painful secret or fear, or a time of hardship. Whatever the circumstance, a thin place is where God and humanity meet in a mysterious way. These moments open us to places of rawness and beauty. When we enter into a thin place, something seems to break open inside us, and words are inadequate to describe what we are experiencing. In these moments, we feel a sense of breakthrough as we break free of the ordinary and experience the extraordinary amid our daily lives.

    Drawing on her Irish-Celtic heritage, Julianne Stanz helps us explore those times and holy places of transformation. Inspired by faith and guided by spiritual practices, we can experience each thin place as a point of departure on a sacred journey to a truer understanding of who we are meant to be.

  • From The Depths Of The Heart


    St. Gregory of Narek (ca. 945-1003), Armenian mystic poet and theologian, was named Doctor of the Church by Pope Francis on April 12, 2015. Not so well known in the West, the saint holds a distinctive place in the Armenian Church by virtue of his Prayer Book and hymnic odes-among other works. His writings are equally prized as literary masterpieces, with the Prayer Book as the magnum opus. With this meticulous translation of the prayers, St. Gregory of Narek enters another millennium of wonderment, now in a wider circle. The prayers resound from their author’s heart-albeit in a different language, rendered by a renowned translator of early Armenian texts and a theologian.

  • White Stone : The Art Of Letting Go


    Esther de Waal is one of today’s most beloved spiritual writers. In The White Stone, she reflects on the changes and losses that come with growing older. Esther reflects on solitude and, following a period of illness, saying goodbye to a family home and the Welsh border landscape she had known for decades which inspired some of her greatest writing. In her characteristic style, she sees everything as a portal into a deeper spiritual understanding.

    She draws on the wealth of the Christian tradition, especially scripture and the monastic and Celtic spiritualities she knows so well, to help her navigate her way through not only the inevitable sense of loss that accompanies such change, but also to embrace the new possibilities it brings. The white stone of the title refers to a small pebble from the river that ran through her garden that she keeps in her pocket, but also strikes a note of hope referring to the new identity promised by God (Revelation 2.17). This is a book of simple, profound wisdom that will speak to many coping with change in their own lives.

  • Being Claimed By The Eucharist We Celebrate


    The eucharistic celebration is a vital part of the life and ministry of every priest and deacon. At the same time, the Eucharist is also a compelling narrative of all that Christ is for the People of God. In this book, Fr. Detisch explores a spirituality of holy orders through the eucharistic actions of Christ: take, bless, break, and give. These are more than ritual actions the deacon or priest performs within the liturgy. As they did for Jesus Christ, these eucharistic words define who a priest or deacon is for God’s people.
