Adoption: Should You, Could You, and Then What?
Guarendi, Ray
$14.95

Do you know anyone who is looking for straightforward information about adoption for themselves or others? Are you interested in learning more about adoption and finding answers to common concerns?
In his latest book, Adoption: Should You, Could You, and Then What?, Dr. Ray Guarendi — renowned clinical psychologist and father of ten adopted children — provides authentic answers to challenging, real-life questions. With humor and wisdom, Dr. Ray draws from professional and personal experience, as well as scientific research, to allay frequent misconceptions. Issues he addresses include:
- Frustrations about the adoption process, including why couples have to wait so long
- Healthy motives and reasons to adopt
- How to make adopted children feel special
- Adopting children of various ages and if it will impact “birth order”
- Relationships (if any) between adopted children and their birth parents
- Rearing children with “special needs”
- Adopting children of other races
- Tips for responding to difficult reactions
- Talking to children about their adoption stories
- Whether adoptive children should be treated differently
Dr. Ray’s counsel in Adoption is relatable to all families. In an increasingly socially disconnected world, Dr. Ray reminds us that, through commitment and bonding, parents enable children to thrive at “home and beyond.” In discussing how to choose, live, and love adoption, Dr. Ray emphasizes that “a loving, strong parent can do much to put a child on the path to recovery” and counsels, “Never let the opinions of others overrule your decision to adopt.”

Art of Dying Well

Art of Dying Well
Bellarmine, St Robert
$14.95

Rather than turning away from death, great saints such as Robert Bellarmine, the author of this book, use it as a lens through which to view life from the right perspective — God's perspective.

Seen this way, death becomes for them — and can become for you — a source of spiritual liberation rather than a reason for fear, enabling you to love the world as it ought to be loved and to answer your final summons with joy.

St. Robert Bellarmine makes it simple for you. He explains sixteen things you can do to put your life in order now, so you'll start living better today and be prepared for death whenever it comes, be it tomorrow or years from now. Not only will these sixteen insightful measures free you from fear; they'll invigorate your spiritual life and bring into all aspects of your life the consoling peace of Christ.

Let St. Robert Bellarmine — the brilliant Doctor of the Church who influenced the writing of the Declaration of Independence and other American founding documents — introduce you to the art of dying well. You'll discover:

Why learning these principles is more important than anything else you can do today

How to die to the world while living in it — without losing the truly good things in life

Fasting: how this spiritual discipline can determine your soul's destiny

The secret spoiler of prayers and good works: has it crept into your heart?

Why now is the time to prepare for death — whether you're young or in your twilight years

And much more to help you learn to live well now and to die holy when God calls you!

    Cardiologist Examines Jesus: The Stunning Science Behind Eucharistic Miracles

    Cardiologist Examines Jesus: The Stunning Science Behind Eucharistic Miracles
    Serafini Franco
    $19.95

    The Gospels might not be “good enough” for modernity, and science is certainly its god. But neither is an impediment to the one, true God. Indeed, He is using methods of the twenty-first century — His twenty-first century — to show how our Faith can be proven through Eucharistic miracles with clinical scientific precision.

    In this astounding book, prominent cardiologist and author Dr. Franco Serafini walks us through the extensive medical and scientific research into five Eucharistic miracles, unveiling the stunning testimonies of hematologists, oncologists, neurologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, and more who all concluded the same thing: the five Eucharistic miracles are undeniably authentic.

    In surprising and fascinating ways, each of these miracles relates to the others: all reveal heart muscle tissue, many reveal a heart that was experiencing extreme suffering, and some reveal a heart still enduring tissue trauma.

    You’ll learn how the human DNA found in Eucharistic substances was identified, what kept a revered eighth-century relic alive until the twenty-first century, and how the identical blood group recurred in the unique miracles to provide contemporary man with a thrilling statistical fortress. Best of all, you’ll be armed with the scientific data to prove not only that God is still active in the world but that He desires all of us to be in union with Him through His Most Precious Body and Blood.

    Catholic Scientist Harmonizes Science and Faith

    Catholic Scientist Harmonizes Science and Faith
    Verschuuren, Gerard
    $18.95
    Countless people believe that science and faith cannot live together. Gerard Verschurren disagrees. Based on decades of experience as a Catholic scientist and thinker, Dr. Verschurren argues here in down-to-earth language and with convincing arguments that science cannot even exist without religious faith, and that religious faith cannot exist without science. Indeed, the two are so intricately intertwined that leaving one of the two out of the equation would hurt the other. The truth is that science and religion can coexist, have coexisted, coexist now, and will continue to coexist in the future. They share the same goal of explaining reality--either the material part of reality or the immaterial part of reality. Science and religion are the two windows that let humans look at the world they live in. Closing off either window would make us partially blind, as this book convincingly shows. As argued and demonstrated throughout this book, science and religion can definitely live together--in the same home, in the same town, in the same world.

    Charles de Foucauld (Charles of Jesus), Second Edition

    Charles de Foucauld (Charles of Jesus), Second Edition
    Antier, Jean-Jacques
    $19.95

    "My Father, I put myself in your hands", wrote Charles de Foucauld in his journal. "Whatever you make of me, I thank you, I am ready for everything, I accept everything, I thank you for everything."

    When he was killed by bandits in 1916, the French aristocrat-turned-monk was virtually unknown. Over the course of a century, however, the radiance of Foucauld's hidden life has spread more and more, and the Church now recognizes him as a saint.

    His youth and early adulthood read like a novel--the loss of his parents; his education in Paris, where he abandoned the faith of his childhood; his military career in French Algeria; and his exploration of Morocco. After a conversion at the age of twenty-eight, Foucauld was charged with a desire to surrender himself completely to God, leading him eventually to a life of prayer in the Algerian desert. There he devoted himself to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and charity toward his Muslim neighbors--even to the point of death.

    Jean-Jacques Antier describes Foucauld's dramatic, inspiring life in a vivid narrative style. He based his biography on the man's writings and correspondence as well as interviews with numerous people who knew him.

    Illustrated with sixteen pages of photos, and indexed.

    Choosing Forgiveness: Unleash the Power of God's Grace

    Choosing Forgiveness: Unleash the Power of God's Grace
    $17.95

    To say that offering forgiveness is a challenge is an understatement. Forgiveness is tough! Forgiveness is often messy. Forgiveness doesn't feel good to most of us. And when it comes to the biggest, deepest hurts in life, forgiveness can seem impossible.

    Some hurts are the everyday, garden-variety irritations we endure for having to live in the company of other human beings who lose their tempers, get up on the wrong side of the bed, say nasty things, are ungrateful, selfish, and irritable. Some hurts are of a magnitude that far transcend these -- degradation, exploitation, abandonment, rejection, humiliation, racism, bullying, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. But with God's grace, even in those most difficult cases, forgiveness is possible.

    In Choosing Forgiveness, Fr. Thomas Berg and Dr. Timothy G. Lock are your guides on the way toward forgiveness through the grace of God. This book will help you discover the pathway to healing, peace, and interior freedom, releasing you and those who have wronged you from the bondage of unforgiveness.

    Deceiver: Our Daily Struggle with Satan

    Deceiver: Our Daily Struggle with Satan
    Fanzaga, Livio
    $18.95

    Fr. Livio Fanzaga, the Rome-educated, Vatican-endorsed writer and director of Europe's largest Catholic radio network, warns: Efforts to soft-pedal the reality and continuous threat of the devil have left many Catholics "unarmed and unprepared" to resist him. But the question is: How does Satan tempt and deceive us? And how can we see through and resist him?

    In The Deceiver: Our Daily Struggle with Satan, Fr. Fanzaga confidently guides you through everything the Catechism, Sacred Scripture, and the wisdom of the saints tell us about the wiles and antics of the devil. You'll come to understand why evil exists, and you'll explore real-life examples of how the enemy tempts and ensnares us. The Deceiver masterfully unmasks the devil's seductive plan to create a kingdom of his own in your heart, ruled by pride, sensuality, greed, anger, fear, violence, and destruction.

    Most importantly, Fr. Fanzaga provides you with the weapons you need to combat the darkness of the enemy and the seven capital vices. "Satan wants to buy you at a cheap price, but Jesus has poured out His blood in order to obtain your soul," reflects the author.

    These pages correct many of the most common misconceptions about Satan while shedding important light on the end times. They also reveal:

    The strategy of the evil one in attacking our minds and hearts

    Why sin is so alluring

    How we can help - and harm - others on their way to salvation

    How you can use the light of God to expose evil

    How to be on constant guard against temptation and Satan's traps

    The proper roles of repentance and mortification

    The keys to opening your soul to grace and discernment

    Fr. Fanzaga warns us in this stunning book: "In a cultural climate that excludes the supernatural, the devil acts without being noticed. In a context of life in which God and His moral law are denied, Satan moves like a fish in water. Souls without light and deprived of the weapons of the holy battle are doomed."

    The Deceiver; will equip you with the weapons you need to defeat Satan while opening your eyes to the miracles of God's healing love as you prepare for eternity.

    Greatest Commandment: A Fulton Sheen Anthology on Love

    Greatest Commandment: A Fulton Sheen Anthology on Love
    Sheen, Fulton J
    $17.95
    The term "love" is one of the most widely misunderstood and abused in modern English. Misconceptions about love abound in our chaotic society, which is rooted in selfishness, secular humanism, relativism, and hedonism. Society, divorced from God, unfortunately propagates a concept of love that is, in fact, the antithesis of true love.

    We need Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's knowledge, wit, and logic now more than ever to fight these fallacies. His perceptive insights illuminate the most controversial topics of our day in our blind, irrational, and severely polarized world. Archbishop Sheen condemns anti-Semitism, racism, and sexism, remembering that we are all children of God. He also discusses what true tolerance entails and why anti-hate program fail.

    The Greatest Commandment is a timely reissue of Archbishop Sheen's groundbreaking works Love One Another and God Love You. This collection of his best-selling comments also includes statements and prayers he gathered to promote ecumenism and societal unity. Archbishop Sheen explains, drawing on Sacred Scripture, saints' works, and philosophy:
    • The meaning of love in light of the Holy Trinity
    • Why God created us to love — and to be loved
    • The three types of love and the nine ingredients to charity
    • How Heaven is the ultimate fulfillment of our joy, desire, and love
    • Why love cannot exist without truth
    • How we give the greatest glory to God at Mass by uniting ourselves to Christ

    The Greatest Commandment is a treasure to ponder because it expounds on our deep need to love God and plead His mercy by forming a personal relationship with Him through Sacred Scripture and the Sacraments, particularly the Holy Eucharist and Confession. God's loving pursuit of our souls compels us to love our neighbour. Love is a choice that necessitates sacrifice; it is the whole offering of oneself to another. Our witness helps the disillusioned find their way back to God. We shall bring about the world's restoration by collaborating with God's Love.

    How Saints Die: 100 Stories of Hope

    How Saints Die: 100 Stories of Hope
    Sicari, Antonio Maria
    $17.95

    Italian Carmelite Antonio Maria Sicari''s vibrant biographies of saints--from Augustine to Catherine of Siena to Faustina Kowalska--have been read across Europe for decades. In How Saints Die, Sicari turns to the most difficult challenge in the life of a Christian: the hour of death.

    What he uncovers in this darkest moment, however, is not desolation, but inexplicable joy. I have recounted the death of many saints, he writes, but all of them have confirmed for me the truth of this ancient Christian intuition: in the death of a saint, it is death that dies!

    With in-depth research and a flair for storytelling, Sicari brings before our eyes the gracious last hours of one hundred men and women--lovers and martyrs, thinkers and workers, ancients and moderns, old men and teens. Included are Kateri Tekakwitha, Maximilian Kolbe, Mother Teresa, Thomas Aquinas, Josephine Bakhita, Jérôme Lejeune, Clare of Assisi, and many more. In each, a new shade of the divine light shines through.

    Those seeking insight into the mystery of death and suffering will find in this book not only wisdom, but rich and realistic consolation. Divided into brief, readable chapters organized by theme, the collection offers at every bend another fine-grained snapshot of a Christian fully alive.

    Humility and the Elevation of the Mind to God

    Humility and the Elevation of the Mind to God
    $18.95
    This classic work from Thomas à Kempis, author of The Imitation of Christ, is now available in English for the first time.

    It is a simple truth that, without the virtue of humility, we cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. It simply cannot be done. Just as pride is the root and source of all sin, so is humility the foundational virtue in which all other virtues must be grounded if they are to bear fruit.

    Humility is the heartbeat of the saints. It is the virtue that conforms us most closely to Christ. In this short but deeply rich book, the great spiritual master, Thomas à Kempis, will teach you the necessity of humility and how to cultivate it, how to identify the manifestations of pride, how to elevate your mind to God, and how to pray with humility and reverence.

    This timeless work also includes some of the most beautiful prayers ever written to God, the Blessed Mother, and the saints that will help you advance in virtue and pray with fervor.

    Introduction to the Spiritual Life: Walking the Path of Prayer with Jesus

    Introduction to the Spiritual Life: Walking the Path of Prayer with Jesus
    $27.00
    A compelling exploration of the biblical foundations, contemplative practices, and spiritual path of Jesus himself--from the bestselling author of The Case for Jesus

    "What happens when a biblical theologian explores classic spirituality? This book. Pitre's students have asked, Why have we never heard this before? The reader wonders the same."--Dr. David Fagerberg, author of Liturgical Mysticism

    The path of following Jesus is an ancient and storied spiritual tradition. Yet many believers are not familiar with the three major forms of prayer and the three stages of spiritual growth that exist to bring them closer to God.

    In his most personal book yet, Brant Pitre, PhD, draws on the riches of the Bible, the words of Jesus, and the writings of mystics across the centuries to shed light on the mystery--and wonder--of the spiritual life.

    Starting with the age-old belief that the path of prayer is not only informative but transformative, Dr. Pitre explores

    - the scriptural roots of the major forms of prayer: vocal prayer, meditation, and contemplation
    - the purgative, illuminative, and unitive stages of spiritual growth
    - the spiritual exercises of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving
    - the Jewish roots of the Lord's Prayer
    - Lectio Divina: how to pray with the Bible
    - seven vices and their seven opposing virtues
    - the battle of prayer: how to deal with difficulty and distractions
    - the "dark night of the soul" in the Scriptures

    Full of sacred truths, contemplative insights, and practical steps, Introduction to the Spiritual Life is a biblical road map of the spiritual landscape that enables us to follow Jesus as our primary guide.

    Jerome LeJeune: A Man of Science and Conscience

    Jerome LeJeune: A Man of Science and Conscience
    $19.95

    The intelligence of one is a gift for all. Such is the case of Jérôme Lejeune, an extraordinary man who put his brilliance at the service of children with Down syndrome.

    A pioneer of modern genetics, Dr. Lejeune discovered the chromosomal defect that causes Down''s. International acclaim followed, but more important to this doctor--dazzled by the beauty of every human life--was improving the care of his patients with this abnormality. As a man of both science and conscience, he advocated for their dignity, and he suffered attacks on his reputation as a result.

    To write this definitive biography, Aude Dugast spent eleven years consulting thousands of archives. She met at length with Lejeune''s wife and relatives, families of his patients, and his French and foreign collaborators. She invites us to discover the true and untold portrait of Jérôme Lejeune--brilliant scientist close to the great figures of this world, devoted husband and father, and ardent defender of the little ones.

    Little Book of Hospital Miracles

    Little Book of Hospital Miracles
    Grande-Swiatkowski, Lori J
    $11.95

    While caring for a special group of hospital patients for over four decades, Lori Jo Grande-Swiatkowski has witnessed miraculous events that have caused her to realize that the veil between the seen and unseen and Earth and heaven is quite thin.

    In a collection of inspiring true stories gathered from the bedsides of her patients over the years, Lori shares insight into all the ways God is real and works through our lives while caring deeply for us. Phyllis and Albert had been married for fifty-five years and were virtually inseparable. As he battled advanced colon cancer, Phyllis barely left his side-until he bid her farewell in a way she never expected. Sally, who had a brain tumor, prayed to Jesus for a miracle-and received one. Fatima was a beautiful Muslim woman who passionately believed in the power of prayer. But would her prayers heal her as well?

    Little Book of Hospital Miracles shares uplifting stories from a nurse that demonstrate the power of God's presence in our lives as He works little miracles every day to show us that His love never dies.

    Man Your Post: Learning to Lead Like St. Joseph

    Man Your Post: Learning to Lead Like St. Joseph
    Daunt, Duane
    $24.95
    In a generation plagued by fatherlessness, fear, and indecision, men need a mentor.

    They need a man who models masculine strength and understands his God-given duty to lay down his life for his family, to provide for their every need, to protect them, to exemplify a life of virtue.

    St. Joseph is that man.

    Man Your Post: Learning to Lead like St. Joseph is a mission entrusted to you by a company of Catholic men who have faced challenges and found strength through the intercession of the head of the Holy Family, the man who provided for Jesus and Mary during their earthly lives and protected them on harrowing journeys as they fled from danger and battled the forces of this world.

    By embarking on a tour of the Litany of St. Joseph, each chapter explores the power and freedom virtue brings to the lives of ordinary men trying to lead their families to heaven, virtues like justice, chastity, prudence, fortitude, faithfulness, and others.

    Included are powerful testimonies and reflections from:

  • a five-time Major League Baseball All-star
  • a priest
  • a worship leader
  • a family physician
  • a marriage and family counselor
  • a New York Times Bestselling Author
  • and other Catholic leaders, husbands, and fathers
  • With a foreword by Dr. Scott Hahn, Man Your Post is an invitation to join your band of brothers as you carry out the mission God has entrusted to you.

    Answer the call. Join the mission. Man your post.

    Maria Von Trapp and Her Musical Family

    Maria Von Trapp and Her Musical Family
    Blomquist, Cheri
    $11.95

    Since its world premiere in 1959, the Broadway hit (and movie) musical The Sound of Music has captivated millions of people around the world. Almost everyone knows of the aristocratic von Trapp family, the young postulant Maria who brought music back into their lives, and their harrowing escape from Hitler's evil Third Reich. But few know the incredible true story behind the musical.

    In this new Vision Book, that dramatic story is at last told for young readers, based on Maria's bestselling autobiographies and Agathe von Trapp's memoir. Part epic adventure and part spiritual testimony to God's constant faithfulness, this story of the family that became one of the most beloved choirs in history is a page-turner to the very end.

    Trusting in God at every difficult step, the von Trapps gradually rose to world-wide fame, finding their place in America and eventually a new identity as American citizens. The harrowing story of their many adventures and ultimate glorious success is one you will never forget!

    Ministers of Christ: Recovering the Roles of Clergy and Laity in an Age of Confusion

    Ministers of Christ: Recovering the Roles of Clergy and Laity in an Age of Confusion
    Kwasniewski, Peter
    $19.95

    In this bold and powerful book, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski marshals an irrefutable defense of the Church’s historical teaching that her liturgical ministries ― including those of lector and altar server ― should be performed exclusively by men.

    God created the two sexes for profound reasons, explains Dr. Kwasniewski, and we diminish human beings when we lose sight of those reasons. He asserts that the interdependence of the two sexes strengthens both men and women and that the complementary characteristics of masculinity and femininity are indispensable to human development. The manifest differences between the sexes have informed the Church’s vision on the roles of men and women in the liturgy for centuries, and they are now under attack not only from outside the Catholic Church but also within it, threatening the very order and coherence of civilization itself.

    Dr. Kwasniewski thoughtfully reflects on Scripture, Church teachings, and human nature to determine the proper callings of the laity and clergy as well as their diverse but integral modes of participation in the liturgy. He connects the male priesthood to the Incarnation of Our Lord, and he explains the Old Testament background and New Testament roots of the diaconate, subdiaconate, and minor orders. He then stunningly reveals how these roles are designed to reflect and radiate the priesthood of Jesus Christ.

    Finally, Dr. Kwasniewski charts a path to a healthier church life, one that replaces the “heresy of activism” with the primacy of prayer and the power of contemplation. He argues that we should set aside the push to “update” everything and return to the serene embrace of the essential changelessness of the Christian religion. Only then can we adequately worship the immutable God in His eternal truth, which is reflected in the liturgical rites of Catholic tradition and the stable forms of life they call forth and bless.
