On Care for Our Common Home - Laudato Si

product image
$10.95
Pope Francis' landmark encyclical, On Care for Our Common Home, is addressed to "every living person on this planet." It challenges each one of us to ask ourselves, our corporations, and our governments: "How can anyone claim they are building a better future without thinking of the environment?" The document is all-encompassing, calling for respect and protection not only of the earth, but also of the dignity and lives of the poor. Pope Francis stresses that "human life is itself a gift which must be defended from various forms of debasement." Proposals for dialogue and action in the encyclical are broad, but are meant to affect international policy as well as individual lives.

Rejoice And Be Glad: Gaudete et Exsultate (Exhortation)

$9.95
"Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy. On the contrary, you will become what the Father had in mind when he created you, and you will be faithful to your deepest self. To depend on God sets us free from every form of enslavement and leads us to recognize our great dignity."

"We need a spirit of holiness capable of filling both our solitude and our service, our personal life and our evangelizing efforts, so that every moment can be an expression of self-sacrificing love in the Lord's eyes. In this way, every minute of our lives can be a step along the path to growth in holiness." You were not created for a bland and mediocre existence, but for happiness!

In this apostolic exhortation on holiness, Pope Francis reminds you that being holy is an attainable goal and is, in fact, the source of your greatest joy.

In his usual pastoral and personable style, Pope Francis addresses false interpretations of holiness, provides a fresh look at the Beatitudes, and gives you practical ways to apply Jesus' words to your daily life.

Be encouraged by Pope Francis today as you respond to God's invitation to fulfill your unique mission in the world.

Study Guide Included for Reflection and Discussion.

Why Humanae Vitae Is Still Right

product image
$19.95

After half a century, how has the teaching of Pope Paul VI on marriage and birth control, presented in his encyclical Humanae Vitae (On Human Life), held up? Very well, says philosopher Janet Smith and her colleagues in Why Humanae Vitae Is Still Right. A sequel to Smith's classic Why Humanae Vitae Was Right, this new volume shows how the ethical, theological, spiritual, and sociological case for Paul VI's controversial document remains strong--indeed, how it's in some ways even stronger today, following Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body and in light of the problems caused by the sexual revolution.

In addition to essays by Dr. Smith herself, the book features contributions by other renowned experts and scholars such as Mary Eberstadt (author of the best-selling Adam and Eve after the Pill), Therese Scarpelli Corey, Michael Waldstein, Christopher West, Obianuju Ekeocha (author of the best-selling Target Africa), Maria Fedoryka, Deborah Savage, Derek Doroski, Angela LaFranchi, William Newton, Joseph Atkinson, Michele M. Schumacher, and Peter Colosi, among others.

Why Humanae Vitae Is Still Right includes the Krakow Document composed under the supervision of Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (later, Pope John Paul II), which provided research by moral theologians and other experts that helped to shape what became John Paul II's Theology of the Body.
