Brothers and Sisters All: Fratelli Tutti: Fratelli Tutti
Francis, Pope
$9.95
"Let us seek out others and embrace the world as it is, without fear of pain or a sense of inadequacy, because there we will discover all the goodness that God has planted in human hearts." ‚"‚€‚"Pope Francis

Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, "Brothers and Sisters All" invites every Christian to be a Good Samaritan‚"‚€‚"to embrace and care for others with a humble and open heart. Pope Francis challenges us to rise above the isolation and discouragement that is so prevalent in our world today and to set our sights on Christ's call to love one another deeply and sacrificially.

No one is disposable, Pope Francis reminds us, and every person is endowed with dignity as a daughter or and son of God. This truth allows us to acknowledge, appreciate, and love each person. It also allows us to meet people in their place of suffering‚"‚€‚"whether it be the physical suffering of hunger or exploitation, or the unseen suffering of loneliness

Joy of Love - Amoris Laetitia
Pope Francis

"All of us are called to keep striving towards something greater than ourselves and our families, and every family must feel this constant impulse. Let us make this journey as families, let us keep walking together." Pope Francis, Amoris Laetitia

In his groundbreaking work on modern family life, Amoris Laetitia: On Love in the Family, Pope Francis continues to guide and lead the Church, calling us to be a sign of mercy and encouragement for families of all shapes and sizes.

The Our Sunday Visitor edition includes exclusive reflection and discussion questions, to help Catholics grow in our understanding of this call, and act upon it.

In Amoris Laetitia: On Love in the Family the Holy Father expands on the topics and considerations of the two Synods on the family, and adds his own considerations to help us provide pastoral guidance to support and strengthen today's families.

On Love in the Family guides us through:

  • Scripture - what we can learn from Biblical families and relationships with God and each other
  • Reality - the experiences and challenges we face in today's world
  • Tradition - essential aspects of Church teaching on marriage and families
  • Love - what it means for all our relationships
  • Ministry - Pope Francis offers pastoral perspectives for helping build strong families
  • Spirituality - the expression of the Gospel message in our relationships

    On the Eucharist

    On the Eucharist
    Pope John Paul II
    $10.95

    The Eucharist is the source and summit of our Faith because the Blessed Sacrament is Christ himself, the full manifestation of his boundless love.

    In this encyclical letter On the Eucharist, Pope John Paul II seeks to rekindle in the faithful the profound sense of amazement and gratitude that surrounds the Eucharist.

    "In the humble signs of bread and wine, changed into his Body and Blood, Christ walks beside us as our strength and our food for the journey, and he enables us to become, for everyone, witnesses of hope," John Paul II writes. "The Church has received the Eucharist from Christ her Lord not as one gift -- however precious -- among so many others, but as the gift par excellence, for it is the gift of himself, of his Person in his sacred humanity, as well as the gift of his saving work."

    You Are the Light of the World

    You Are the Light of the World
    Francis
    $1.95
    A motu proprio is a papal document, written as a personal response from the Holy Father to questions or petitions from individuals or groups. It is meant to be written in the Pope's own hand (motu proprio literally translates to "in his own hand"), and in this way it differs from other more official papal documents, such as an apostolic constitution or a papal bull. Vos Estis Lux Mundi, or You Are The Light Of The World, is the third motu proprio of Pope Francis' pontificate. It outlines rules established by the Church to fight sexual abuse and encourage accountability and transparency.

    In a statement, Cardinal Archbishop Sean O'Malley of Boston explained the importance of this document: "During the past year it has become far more clear that the people of the Church and our wider society rightfully demand substantive action for disclosure, transparency, and accountability... and that all Church personnel, regardless of office, be subject to the same policies, procedures, and sanctions. Vos Estis Lux Mundi is an important and substantive response to that demand. I am grateful to the Holy Father for his recognition of the critical need for these new policies and procedures and his actions to as best possible assure the protection of all the people we serve throughout the world."
