30 Days of Hope for Restoration in Infant Loss
Roper, Maegan
$9.99
Your heart grieves. The tears won't stop. You sense bitterness and anger growing in you as you struggle between grief and trying to trust God through this part of your journey.
No matter how hard you try, you can't seem to find the delicate balance between your grief and faith in God for the future. It is difficult to understand God's purpose in the death of a child. You doubt you will ever find peace, comfort, or understanding.
Author Maegan Roper, who as walked this dark road, shares the light of hope she received from Christ as He restored her and brought her from grief to joy. Weaving portions of her own personal story with words of encouragement and Scripture, you'll begin to feel restored as you experience the same peace and understanding she found on her journey from loss to hope

Arise from Darkness: What to Do When Life Doesn't Make Sense

Arise from Darkness: What to Do When Life Doesn't Make Sense
Groeschel, Fr Benedict J
$16.95
Well-known author, psychologist and priest Fr. Benedict Groeschel draws on his own years of personal experiences in dealing with people's problems, tragedies and darkness as he offers help and guidance for any Christian troubled or burdened by life. If you are struggling with fear, anxiety, grief, loss of loved ones, hurt, anger or anything that makes life difficult or the road through it dark, then this book was written for you. Fr. Benedict offers practical suggestions on how to keep going and even grow with the help of God's grace, even when this help seems remote. The Christian response to the problem of evil and suffering began with the cross of Christ. Our answer is inseparable from the cross-from Jesus' own encounter with evil and his triumph over it. In this light, Fr. Benedict recalls some of our most frequently encountered sorrows and griefs: the failure of friends, financial and personal insecurity, the failure of some in the Church, our own inconsistent behaviors and weaknesses, and the death of loved ones. As we examine these painful experiences, he shows that we can find solutions in the Gospel and in the lives of saints, heroes, and very brave ordinary people.

Art of Dying Well

Art of Dying Well
Bellarmine, Robert Cardinal
$12.00
We are created for Heaven, and this life is intended for us to work to earn eternal happiness. Any good thing is earned. Saint Robert Bellarmine sets out the basis for dying well, that is for living a life that will bring us to the day of death, the door of eternity, prepared to go through and arrive at our true home in Heaven. To this work has been added a ten day devotion from Saint John Eudes to prepare us for death, a devotion that we can make now as part of our preparation for the end of our life. St. Alphonsus writes: "a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery." Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: "There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!" We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted. Photographic reproductions are given a page by page inspection, whereas textual reproductions are proofread to correct any errors in reproduction.

As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying
Neuhaus, Richard John
$18.99
Several years ago, a ruptured tumor almost killed Richard John Neuhaus. During a series of complicated operations, weeks in critical condition, and months in slow recovery, he was brought face to face with his own mortality. As he lay dying and, as it turned out, recovering, he found that despite his faith he had been quite unprepared for the experience. This book traces his efforts to understand his own reactions and those of his friends and family, and explores how we as a culture understand and deal with death. As I Lay Dying testifies that dying is-and is not-part of living. We can and should live our dying. Neuhaus interweaves his own story with thoughtful inquiry, circling through philosophy, psychology, literature, theology, and his own experiences to create provocative meditations that explore the many aspects of dying: the private and public experience, the separation of the soul from the body, grief, surrender, and mourning. The result is a book that shakes the foundations of our being-and yet is oddly and convincingly tranquil.

    Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body

    Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body
    Hahn, Scott
    $22.95
    As Catholics, we believe in the resurrection of the body. We profess it in our creed. We're taught that to bury and pray for the dead are corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We honor the dead in our Liturgy through the Rite of Christian burial. We do all of this, and more, because when Jesus Christ took on flesh for the salvation of our souls he also bestowed great dignity on our bodies.

    In Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body, Scott Hahn explores the significance of death and burial from a Catholic perspective. The promise of the bodily resurrection brings into focus the need for the dignified care of our bodies at the hour of death. Unpacking both Scripture and Catholic teaching, Hope to Die reminds us that we are destined for glorification on the last day.

    Our bodies have been made by a God who loves us. Even in death, those bodies point to the mystery of our salvation.

    In Heaven We'll Meet Again

    In Heaven We'll Meet Again
    Blot, Franocois Renae
    $14.95

    In wise and consoling letters written to a mother sorrowing over the death of her child, Fr. Franois Ren Blot, S.J., summons the Church's greatest saints who testify with one voice that death's wound, though grievous, separates us but a short while from those who have died before us.

    Acknowledging that profound sorrow at the death of a loved one is appropriate, Fr. Blot nonetheless gives us reasons to be joyful even in the midst of our sorrow: not only will we be reunited with our loved ones in heaven, but we can also look forward to our friendships being perfect, free of all selfishness and regrets.

    Moreover, the saints say, in heaven we will love and know the love of countless souls we never met on earth, our Guardian Angel, and all the choirs of angels!

    Littlest Suffering Souls: Children Whose Short Lives Point Us to Christ

    Littlest Suffering Souls: Children Whose Short Lives Point Us to Christ
    Ruse, Austin
    $24.95
    It is said that children learn what they live. But children also teach the adults in their lives lessons on subjects such as unconditional love, self-sacrifice, self-forgetfulness, patience and more. The ordinary way an adult learns these things from his or her children is by caring for them.

    Every parent knows that. But some extraordinary children seem sent by God to teach us about the -big questions- such as life, death, suffering, and the existence of God. The children in this book, all of whom suffered terribly during their short lives, bore witness to God's love and an understanding of the meaning of suffering and -what to do with it- that belied their years. And their teaching was not limited to their immediate family: Everyone with whom they came into contact, from doctors and nurses, to major political figures and popes to family friends and other children, was profoundly affected by the encounter.

    This book will make you cry, yes, but the tears will be mixed with something akin to joy at the beauty of the short lives of Brendan, Margaret, and Audrey, and awe at the grace and dignity with which they bore their crosses, lived and enjoyed this life, and ultimately left it to be with the God they all loved. In this time in which there is so much despair and sadness, and in this world in which we are so frequently reminded that it can truly be a -vale of tears, - let the Littlest Suffering Souls remind you that this present life is not all there is; let the Littlest Suffering Souls point you to heaven and to Christ.

    Memento Mori (Pb): Prayers on the Last Things

    Memento Mori (Pb): Prayers on the Last Things
    Noble, Theresa
    $24.95

    Memento mori--Latin for "remember you will die"--refers to the practice of meditation on one's inevitable death. Encouraged by Scripture and the saints, this ancient tradition can help you to manage the chaos of this world, grow closer to God, and focus on heaven.


    Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP is a religious sister at the forefront of the movement to revive this practice in the Church. She has written several resources to help people to incorporate memento mori into their daily lives. Her Memento Mori: A Lenten Devotional and the Memento Mori Journal have touched thousands of lives. Now she has compiled and written a beautiful prayer book to help people to meditate on death and the afterlife, traditionally called "the Last Things," in order to prepare for heaven.


    Meditation on the Last Things--death, judgment, hell, and heaven--is not a dark and depressing practice. Rather, the practice is hopeful and lifechanging. It helps people to take stock of their lives, grow closer to God, and to live with renewed purpose and fervor. May this practice open your heart to the work God wants to do in you and through you before your last day on earth, whenever that day might be.


    May God find us prepared!
