  • Lost Art Of Sacrifice

    $19.95

    In these pages, Vicki Burback explains that while Christ’s words are challenging, he isn’t asking us to pick up our cross because he is vindictive or twisted, nor because He wants to see us suffer. It’s because sacrifice is the greatest manifestation of love, and He created our souls in order to love and to be loved.

  • Let Us Dream

    $26.00

    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

  • Spider Who Saved Christmas

    $17.95

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

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

    Like each of us … she was there for a reason.

  • Grumpy Old Ox

    $16.95

    This new children’s Christmas book by bestselling author Anthony DeStefano tells the story of a mean-spirited, prideful old ox who has lost his sight-both physically and spiritually-but who nevertheless experiences the transformative power of God’s grace after he witnesses the birth of Jesus Christ in a humble stable in Bethlehem.

    Illustrated by New York Times bestselling artist Richard Cowdrey, this new holiday book teaches children the true meaning of Christmas while also explaining the central message of Christianity: that faith in Jesus leads us to resurrection and new life.

    Moreover, it shows the profound connection between spiritual pride and blindness. Like the main character in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, this Scrooge of an ox is a slave to his own anger and crippled by his own coldness. He seems destined to live out his days frustrated, unhappy and alone-until he makes a life-altering decision of faith that brings him the miraculous gift of healing and joy.

    This uplifting, inspiring book will delight all Christians, though Catholics especially will appreciate its powerful Eucharistic message. Connecting the manger in the stable, from which the ox eats his food, to birth of the Son of God, the story shows that Jesus is the Bread of Life; that he came into the world to feed the hungry, to restore sight to the blind, and to set free those who are captive to sin.

    All of this is contained in a 32-page picture book that is sure to entertain and enthrall children with its adorable rhymes and beautiful illustrations for years to come.

    $14.95

    Whether the coronavirus still threatens you, your friends, and your family or has harmed someone you love, these pages will ease your fears, heal your wounds, quench your sorrow, and bring you the consolation God provides to all who seek Him in pestilential times like these – times that are, in fact, not foreign to our ancient Faith.

    For in Christianity’s two-thousand-year history, cruel persecutions and sudden, uncontrollable plagues like COVID-19 have time and again struck mankind, challenging Christians to rise up spiritually against evils that cannot immediately be conquered materially.

    Now our turn has come . . . along with the help we need to succeed. Here celebrated Catholic author and media host Teresa Tomeo has drawn forth from Scripture, the lives of the saints, and contemporary sources a healing balm for souls – believers and unbelievers alike – who have been shaken by the frightening evils thrust upon us by this coronavirus. With scores of emotional stories and practical weapons you can use to conquer this faceless enemy – and with reflection questions that make it perfect for group study and book clubs – these welcoming pages offer you:

    *Inspiring true-life narratives of selfless souls – healthcare workers and other public servants – on the frontlines of the battle against the virus

    *Touching tales of clergymen providing creative ways to minister to their flocks – sometimes risking their lives to do so

    *Prayers appropriate for the unique threats – material and spiritual – that we face today

    *Powerful quotes from Scripture and from beloved saints that provide guidance and hope for such times, and welcome consolation for our losses

    *Advice to help you bear gracefully the many unexpected burdens that are suddenly yours to carry, including those you never asked for and do not want

    *Surefire ways you can – and should – ease the burden the virus has placed on others (and simultaneously ease your own)

    *Creative ways to respond at home and elsewhere to the limitations the virus has imposed on your days and ways, and to the invitation from God that is implicit in each of those limitations

    *Long-forgotten but time-tested traditional practices that will not only carry you through this crisis but also yield for you and your family a healthier, holier lifestyle once the crisis is over

  • Devil Is Afraid Of Me

    $17.95

    We can do nothing against you because you are too protected!

    So declared a frustrated host of devils to Father Gabriele Amorth, the priest exorcist in Rome who spent thirty years battling the Devil and his minions by performing more than sixty thousand exorcisms. All the while, he deftly used modern media to awaken our disbelieving modern culture – and even the Church – to the reality of the Devil and his nefarious actions at all times and everywhere.

    In these eye-opening pages, angelologist Father Marcello Stanzione tells the fascinating story of Father Amorth and his life as an exorcist. You’ll learn of his daily schedule and how he managed to perform dozens of exorcisms each week. You’ll find out what his exorcism room looked like, and how various devils responded to his bold practice. Best of all, you’ll read Father Amorth’s own startling explanations of many truths about the Devil that our culture has forgotten – and about the canny methods the Deceiver has adopted in recent years to corrupt believers and unbelievers alike. Among the many questions Father Amorth answers here are:

    -How can we recognize the action of the Evil One?
    -Can a person in the afterlife enter spiritually into a living person?
    -Which prayers of liberation are the most successful?
    -What are the four methods a demon uses to enter souls?
    -Can demons hide from an exorcist?
    -What are the six characteristics of evil spells?
    -Are all instances of clairvoyance managed by demons?
    -Is an exorcist infallible in his judgment and his ministry?
    -Why is there no longer any possibility of salvation for the fallen angels?
    -What are the arms of combat that each of us must use to do battle with evil?
    -And many more surprising facts about the Evil One and how to resist him.

    We can do nothing against you because you are too protected! cried the devils that Father Amorth battled. Let Father Amorth teach you in these pages how you, too, can be protected!

  • Its Good To Be Here

    $17.95

    I can’t walk; I can’t sit up straight; I can’t feed myself. If you and I meet, the first thing you notice will be my body crumpled in a wheelchair. Once I could at least sit up, but now my weak neck is bent over and my spine bent so much that my head falls heavily upon my left shoulder and my hunched back.

    So writes Christina Chase, the twenty-first century Therese of Lisieux whose littleness is humbler even than that of the Little Flower, but whose spiritual power is, by every discernible measure, of comparable intensity. Crippled though she is, Christina’s fearful disabilities have led her not into anger, bitterness, or despair, but rather into a profound and exceptional encounter with God’s love itself-an encounter that you, too, can experience through the gentle allure of Christina’s witness.

    Locked now for decades within her own fragile, helpless body, Christina has been graced with extraordinary insights into the similar helplessness of Jesus, the majestic King of the Universe, who, when born of the Virgin Mary, became just like Christina today-unable to feed Himself or even lift His head. From that littleness – hers and His – Christina here draws forth a marvelous wisdom that shows that as creatures, we are all, in one sense or another, paralyzed.

    None of us can exist apart from limitations and boundaries.

    None of us can walk through this life unaided.

    In the presence of God, not a single one of us can even stand.

    But no matter! For out of infinite love for us and to save us, Jesus chose to join us in our littleness, exposing Himself to the limitations of time and space and circumstance, even unto His death on the Cross. The sweet sufferer Christina has assimilated this saving truth, which shines forth from these consoling pages for all of humanity to feel.

    Read these pages by wheelchair-bound Christina to discover how much Jesus loves you, no matter how little and crippled you are, spiritually or otherwise.

    Yes, He loves you!

    Meditating on this stunning fact yields a joy that transcends the greatest physical or mental suffering – a joy that is Christina’s, despite her abject physical state, and a joy that can, with the help of these pages, be yours as well.

  • Habits For A Healthy Marriage

    $17.95

    Drawing on his experience of forty years as a psychiatrist, Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons presents twelve habits that can foster healing and growth in Catholic marriages. This books helps couples to identify and resolve the major emotional conflicts that weaken their relationships and hurt their marriages.

    Habits for a Healthy Marriage is unique because it draws on the field of positive psychology, which focuses on growth in virtues. Each chapter names a common marital problem along with a particular virtue that can help couples to overcome that problem. It shows that the road to healing is paved with forgiveness, not only between spouses but also within their families of origin. Along the way the author incorporates the luminous writing of Saint John Paul II on marriage and the timeless wisdom of the Catholic Church.

    Whether you are newly engaged, recently married, or married for many years, the conflict-resolving strategies described in this book-the habits of a healthy marriage-can help you to protect your relationship from the emotional storms that often lead to quarrelling and mistrust, and sometimes to separation and divorce.

  • Heart Of Perfection

    $26.00

    An award-winning author, former presidential speechwriter, and mother of four weaves stories of her own struggles against comparison and impossible expectations with those of seven ex-perfectionist saints (and one heretic) who show us how to pursue a new kind of perfection: freedom in Christ.

    Spiritual perfectionism–an obsession with flawlessness rooted in the belief that we can earn God’s love–is the most dangerous form of perfectionism because so many of us mistake it for virtue, or deny that it afflicts us at all. Its toxic cycle of pride, sin, shame, blame, and despair distorts our vision, dulls our faith, and leads us to view others through the same hypercritical lens we think God is using to view us.

    As a lifelong overachiever who drafted her first resume in sixth grade and spell-checked her high-school boyfriend’s love letters, Colleen Carroll Campbell knows something about the perfectionist trap. But it was only after she became a mother that she started to see how insidiously perfectionism had infected her spiritual life, how lethal it could be to her happiness and her family, and how disproportionately it afflicts the people working hardest to serve God.

    In the ruins of her own perfectionist mistakes, Colleen dug into Scripture and the lives of the canonized saints for answers. She discovered to her surprise that many holy men and women she once saw as encouraging her perfectionism were, in fact, recovering perfectionists. And their grace-fueled victory over this malady–not perfectionist striving–was the key to their heroic virtue and contagious joy.

    In The Heart of Perfection, Colleen weaves the stories and wisdom of these saints with Scripture and beautifully crafted tales of her own trial-and-error experiments in applying that wisdom to her life. She introduces us to such saints as Jane de Chantal, a single mother who conquered her impatience only after her ex-perfectionist friend Saint Francis de Sales convinced her to trade punishing prayer regimens for the tougher discipline of showing gentleness to rude in-laws, rowdy kids, and herself. Colleen describes the battle against obsessive guilt that turned timid people-pleaser Alphonsus Liguori into a fearless defender of God’s mercy; the discernment rules that helped Ignatius of Loyola overcome crippling discouragement and distraction; the concern for reputation that almost cost the world the radical witness of Francis of Assisi; and the biblical work-life balance that Benedict

  • Suffering With A Purpose

    $14.95

    The greatest test of your faith won’t come from routine encounters in your work, family or social life. Nor will it come from extraordinary challenges or temptations. No, your greatest test will be whether you will trust God when you suffer, or whether you will, in the words of Job’s wife, curse God and die.

    In Suffering with a Purpose, Dom Hubert van Zeller helps you prepare now for all your sufferings in life by enabling you to see them with the eyes of the Spirit.

    Van Zeller, the wise author of Holiness for Housewives, maintains that you can understand the mystery of suffering only by means of the Passion of Christ. In this book, he explores the fourteen stages of the Passion narrative, plumbing the inner meanings of each in order to reveal why there has to be pain, and what you should do (and should not do) about it.

  • Fragility Of Order

    $24.95

    One of America’s most prominent public intellectuals brings thirty-five years of experience in Washington and Rome to bear in analyzing the turbulence that characterizes world politics, American public life, and the Catholic Church in the early twenty-first century.

    In these bracing essays, George Weigel reads such events as the First World War, the collapse of Communism, and the Obama and Trump presidencies through a distinctive cultural and moral lens, even as he offers new insights into Pope Francis and his challenging pontificate.

    Throughout, two of Weigel’s key convictions-that ideas have consequences for good and ill, and that the deepest currents of history flow through culture-illuminate political and economic life, and the life of the Church, in ways not often appreciated or understood.

    Many of the chapters in this book originated in George Weigel’s annual William E. Simon Lecture, which since 2001 has become a major event in Washington, D.C. They are unique in their application of philosophical and theological perspectives to the issues of history and politics, enabling the reader to see current events in a deeper way.

  • To Change The Church

    In To Change the Church, a New York Times columnist and one of America’s leading conservative thinkers considers Pope Francis’s efforts to change the church he governs. Ross Douthat explains why the debate Francis has opened – over communion for the divorced and the remarried – is so dangerous. He argues that it cuts to the heart of the larger argument over how Christianity should respond to the sexual revolution and modernity itself, how it promises or threatens to separate the church from its own deep past, and how it divides Catholicism along geographical and cultural lines.

  • Light Entrusted To You

    $18.95

    This book is a very practical, inspiring primer for the common Catholic as it breaks down the Catholic faith into six key categories that can be applied to everyday life. The six categories are color coded and use an acronym of the word SAINTS to help us see how every aspect of the Catholic faith fits together as a whole to help us become saints. It is a call to action for parents, grandparents, and all Catholic adults to take seriously their obligation to both live and pass on the faith, and is a resource providing the tools necessary to do just that.

    In the spirit of the New Evangelization, Wood uses popular movies, songs, stories, sports, and life experiences to teach the faith. He shares the CD’s, DVD’s, books, and media that have helped him learn and fall in love with the Catholic faith and pass it on to every age group. The book revolves around the words of the sacrament of Baptism, reminding Catholic parents that they have been entrusted with the duty of being primary educators of the faith. He helps parents rediscover the genius of Catholicism so they can be equipped to confidently learn, live, and pass on their faith to the next generation.

    John helps us understand that we are called to put God first in everything we do in this world, and that building holy families is essential in building holy vocations and becoming saints. At a time when young people are leaving the faith in massive numbers, he offers new ways of engaging our children in their faith from a very young age.

  • Into His Likeness

    $16.95

    In the ancient disciple-rabbi relationship, the disciple would follow the rabbi so closely that he would be covered in the dust kicked up from his rabbi’s feet. Thousands of years later, though we walk on roads of pavement and not dust, we are still called to be disciples-to follow our Rabbi, Jesus Christ, so closely that we are covered with his life, changed, and made new.

    Into His Likeness provides an approachable but in-depth exploration of how to live as a disciple and experience the transformation Jesus wants to work in our lives. We might desire to live more like Christ, but we know we fall short. This book simply helps us follow those initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, so that we may more intentionally encounter Jesus anew each day and be more disposed to his grace changing us ever more into his likeness.

  • Hans Kung

    $14.95

    Swiss theologian Hans Kung may be the most provocative leader in Roman Catholic thought today, with heroic appeal to progressive Catholics, Protestants, and secular thinkers. In this book, John J. Kiwiet shows Kung as the mature scholar, devoted pastor, and eloquent speaker in conflict with the Vatican in Rome, resistant to its leadership and in polemic with its theology. Believing that the problems of secular humanity cannot be solved without the involvement of religious humanity, Kung calls the church to take a decisive stance in the issues of the day rather than merely reformulate issues of the past. Kung has received a wide hearing among Catholics and Protestants, and his works On Being a Christian and Does God Exist? remain crucial in contemporary dialogue. Kiwiet’s book is an invaluable aid in understanding Kung, his life, his writings, and his ongoing significance as a shaper of modern theology.

    The Makers of the Modern Theological Mind series remains a mustread for anyone eager to understand these theologians and their impact on today’s church.

    Hans Kung (born 1928) is professor emeritus of ecumenical theology at Tubingen University in Germany and honorary president of the Global Ethic Foundation.

  • Power Of Silence

    $18.95

    In a time when technology penetrates our lives in so many ways and materialism exerts such a powerful influence over us, Cardinal Robert Sarah presents a bold book about the strength of silence. The modern world generates so much noise, he says, that seeking moments of silence has become both harder and more necessary than ever before.

    Silence is the indispensable doorway to the divine, explains the cardinal in this profound conversation with Nicolas Diat. Within the hushed and hallowed walls of the La Grande Chartreux, the famous Carthusian monastery in the French Alps, Cardinal Sarah addresses the following questions: Can those who do not know silence ever attain truth, beauty, or love? Do not wisdom, artistic vision, and devotion spring from silence, where the voice of God is heard in the depths of the human heart?

    After the international success of God or Nothing, Cardinal Sarah seeks to restore to silence its place of honor and importance. Silence is more important than any other human work, he says, for it expresses God. The true revolution comes from silence; it leads us toward God and others so as to place ourselves humbly and generously at their service.
