Beatitudes (Companion in Faith)

Beatitudes (Companion in Faith)
$5.95

The Beatitudes are the words of Christ that cut to the very core of the Christian life. But have they become so familiar that we breeze past them, without taking them to heart? The Beatitudes can -- and will -- transform our lives in a powerful way, if we take the time to connect with them daily.

In The Beatitudes, you will find guided meditations based on the Beatitudes found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. For each Beatitude you will:

  • Focus inward: What is Christ saying to you?
  • Focus outward: How does Christ want you to interact with the world?
  • Pray, reflect, and act: What is God asking you to do?
  • The reflections in The Beatitudes are an essential aspect of examining your daily life, preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and deepening your prayer life.

    Part of the Companion in Faith series.

    Final Confrontation - Ralph Martin

    Final Confrontation - Ralph Martin
    $2.00

    Many years ago, Pope St. John Paul II said, "We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced...the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously..." In this booklet, Ralph Martin takes a look at what Scripture says about the final confrontation and the work of the Evil One. He exposes the lies of the enemy and the truth about Divine Mercy.  He also identifies what we must do to face the present trials with courage.

    From Resentment to Forgiveness: A Gateway to Happiness

    A short, profound book

    Discover that forgiveness IS possible

    Offers practical advice and solutions

    We all want to be happy. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to happiness for most people is resentment.

    It’s easy to see how widespread this problem is: just notice the critical tone of so many conversations, the anger, the complaints and lamentations, the excuses, negative thoughts, frustrations, the distancing of person from person, family divisions, marriage breakdowns, eagerness for vindication or vengeance, labor disputes, social problems, even conflicts between nations.

    This short book confronts this problem, studies it, and offers solutions to resolve it.

    Handy Little Guide to Novenas

    Handy Little Guide to Novenas
    Gingras, Allison
    $6.95

    The Blessed Mother and the Twelve Apostles remained in the Upper Room in prayer for nine days after the Lord's ascension. From those nine days of prayer, the tradition of novenas -- praying for a specific period of time for a special intention -- was born. The word novena is derived from the Latin novem, meaning nine.

    The Handy Little Guide to Novenas is your easy-to-read, down-to-earth introduction to this beautiful devotion. In this brief booklet, author and novena enthusiast Allison Gingras helps you understand and practice this ancient, yet totally relevant, form of prayer. You'll learn:

  • The fundamentals of novenas -- when to pray them, for how long, and to whom
  • The biblical connections of novenas
  • The proper mindset for praying a novena, including what not to do
  • Recommendations for tried-and-true novenas

    Hell and Its Torments

    Hell and Its Torments
    Bellarmine, Robert
    $4.95
    "If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire." (Mark 9:43)

    Hell is a terrible place...but how horrific is it actually?
    What would happen to me if I were to be there eternally?

    St. Robert Bellarmine, Doctor of the Church, explains the horrors of Hell in clear detail in Hell and its Torments. St. Robert explains why Our Lord repeatedly mentions the "fires of Gehenna" and the fate of the souls who turn against him. Of Judas he says. "it would be better for that man if he had never been born" (Matt 26:24). Our dear loving Lord's numerous references to Hell and warnings against it should prompt us to consider it in detail and understand its horror.

    If we cannot be inspired to run towards God by the rewards and joys of Heaven, let us at the least begin our movement towards our loving God by fleeing the fires of Hell.

    Originally one part of a four-part sermon, St. Robert Bellarmine's vigorous examination of the reality of Hell will inspire you to amend your life and desire, even more, the blessedness of Heaven. This small and powerful booklet is perfectly composed so as to focus our minds on the essential realities of Hell.

    The meditations on the pains of Hell, written in 1574, remain surprisingly relevant to our modern world. The sermon considers the tremendous gravity of sin, the complete and unthinkable suffering of those in Hell, and the contrast of Hell with the blessed souls in Heaven. In all these considerations, St. Robert Bellarmine vigorously pursues the truth of Hell and its relevance to us as sinners.

    The brief and powerful lessons in Hell and Its Torments will touch your soul and inspire to abandon sin and turn to the grace that God constantly offers so that we can become saints.

    Hope for Hard Times (30 minute read)

    Hope for Hard Times (30 minute read)
    Hahn, Scott
    $7.95

    Life is hard. And there are all sorts of pitfalls along the way.

    Nowhere do we find a more overwhelming chronicle of hard times than in the Bible itself. The Old Testament is a long record of the disappointments and disasters that came upon the people of Israel.

    Within every Scripture story of God's discipline, we find God's unceasing redemption. Within every story of man's stubbornness or selfishness that leads to strife, we find God's loving grace that leads us back to safety.

    God doesn't just take pity on us; he empowers us. But only when we cease to rely on our own strength can we discover that God's strength is always there for us.

    Theologian and TV host Scott Hahn shows us how we can use the Bible to deal with hard times, to get over hard times, and yes, even to rejoice in hard times.

    Hound of Heaven

    Hound of Heaven
    Thompson, Francis
    $8.95

    The Classic Victorian poem about Christian angst that still speaks to modern audiences. Accompanied by illustrations that deepen the meaning of the poem.

    A portable paperback version of a long poem by the Catholic Victorian poet Francis Thompson that grapples with our relationship with God and faith. The Hound of Heaven was written in 1890, but it foresaw the 20th century themes of existentialism and anxiety in modern times. This poem was much loved by Christian-influenced authors like G. K. Chesterton, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis, and in turn informed their own writing.

    "[A] treat in store for you is the edition of the perennial Catholic classic. Francis Thompson's The Hound of Heaven. Jean Young provides beautiful new illustration for this poem. Thompson tells the familiar story of the sinner's flight from God, and God's even more insistent pursuit of the erring soul. . . . The poem has major appeal on many levels. . . . This little edition is great for a thoughtful gift."-The Priest

    Scripture, Mercy & Homosexuality

    Scripture, Mercy & Homosexuality
    $3.95

    Our God is a God of mercy: ever ready to love, forgive, and embrace us as his sons and daughters. Yet some of the Bible’s teachings on sexual morality can seem harsh and discriminatory. How can biblical teaching about homosexuality, especially, be compatible with the loving mercy of God?

    Some people answer that question by dismissing such teachings as outdated—even embarrassing. Surely the ancient Levitical laws, or the letters of St. Paul, merely reflected the prejudices of their time and place?

    In Scripture, Mercy, and Homosexuality, Mary Healy explores all those passages and more in light of the revelation of God’s mercy. She provides a scholarly yet readable explanation of how Scripture actually offers a fully harmonious message about God’s plan for human love and happiness, and shows how the Bible can help us fulfill our call to be the face of God’s mercy to all.

    What is the Theology of the Body?
    $2.95

    The is the first title in the new series edited by Theology of the Body experts Christopher West and Katrina Zeno. In this pamphlet, West introduces us to the core truths behind this revolutionary teaching of Pope John Paul II.

He shows how an understanding of who we are as male and female and the spousal meaning of our bodies unlocks the key to these and all of life s questions. God's plan for us is stamped right into our bodies, and knowing this gives us a new lens through which to see our life, our relationships, and the world around us. This pamphlet serves as a great, eye-opening introduction to this life-changing message.
