Aquinas's Lenten Meditations: 40 Days with the Angelic Doctor

Aquinas's Lenten Meditations: 40 Days with the Angelic Doctor
$17.95

There's a multitude of Lenten meditation books but only one that's packed with the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas. Journey through Lent with the Church's greatest philosopher-theologian. This unrivaled spiritual master will guide you in encountering Our Lord and experiencing the type of fruitful Lent that he often experienced.

You will relish this magnificent treasury of sixty-three of Aquinas's Scripture-based sermons specially selected for the holy season. From Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday, you'll learn how to deepen your prayer life, conquer temptation, resist the evils incurred by sin, and equip yourself for spiritual battle.

In the straightforward, logical language for which he is famous, Aquinas shows you how to detach yourself from the things of this world and refocus on the things above, reflecting on Our Lord and Our Lady as models.

You will learn the importance of fasting to the preservation of chastity and how to perform acts that will increase your humility and purity. As you contemplate the example of Our Lord on the Cross, Aquinas will help you weed out vices and cultivate virtues to prepare for the joys of Heaven.

Let the Angelic Doctor assist you in overcoming idleness and fostering a deeper devotion with stirring reflections on:

Ways in which the Blood of Jesus is precious and salvific
The confidence we should place in Our Divine Friend, even in sickness, suffering, and pain
How Our Lady suffered and how she personifies charity, patience, humility, obedience, and detachment
Why the pain suffered by Our Lord was the greatest pain possible in this life
Jesus' fourfold humiliation on the Cross -- and the fourfold exaltation it merited Him
How Christ manifested all virtues on the Cross, the "pulpit from which He taught all mankind"

Also included are forgotten or little-known traditional feast days, such as the feast of the Holy Lance and the Nails of Our Lord and the feast of the Holy Winding Sheet.

You will find rich meditations on Christ's Passion and reflections for each day of Holy Week. Best of all, you will discover the greatest love story of all time: the Father who offered His only Son, and the Son who underwent every suffering and sacrificed His life for our redemption.

Bitter and Sweet: A Journey Into Easter

Bitter and Sweet: A Journey Into Easter
Oxenreider, Tsh
$22.99
Celebrate A Season of Renewal and Reflection

The theme of bitterness runs through the Bible as a sour reminder of sin's presence in our world--yet it's because of this bitterness that Jesus' grace is so sweet and satisfying. As we learn to turn from our vices and crave real beauty, goodness, and truth through the pursuit of virtues, we grow nearer to God and become more like who He made us to be.

From Tsh Oxenreider, bestselling author of Shadow and Light: A Journey into Advent, arrives a devotional to help you meditate and rejoice in the transcendent miracle of Easter. You will...

  • uncover what it means to participate in the liturgical traditions of Lent, from fasting to almsgiving
  • experience artwork and music that illuminate the impact--both personal and global--of Jesus's death and resurrection
  • contemplate the wonder of Christ's redemption of all humankind, especially as this time of introspection reveals your human limitations

  • Starting on Ash Wednesday and leading you all the way through Holy Week, Bitter and Sweet is an invitation to better understand Jesus's sacrifice as you delight in His ultimate love for you.

    Breathe: A Child's Guide to Ascension, Pentecost, and the Growing Time

    Breathe: A Child's Guide to Ascension, Pentecost, and the Growing Time
    Alary, Laura
    $16.99

    Imbued with a sense of wonder, and a strong connection to the natural world, Laura Alary's books invite young readers to engage with the liturgical seasons of the church year. Breathe is a journey through Ascension, Pentecost, and Ordinary Time.

    "The day of Pentecost is coming. The church is changing color. The white and gold of Easter will soon burst into flaming red, then cool to green." So begins Breathe: A Child's Guide to Ascension, Pentecost, and the Growing Time.

    In the warm, thoughtful style that has made her books so popular with families who want to encourage their children to think deeply and engage their spiritual imaginations, Laura Alary presents the third book in a trilogy (previous books include Look! A Child's Guide to Advent and Christmas and Make Room: A Child's Guide to Lent and Easter) that explores the church's liturgical seasons.

    At the heart of Breathe lies a puzzle: How can Jesus go away, yet promise to be with us always? Can we trust someone who comes and goes so mysteriously?

    Moving beyond long ago and far away events, Breathe invites children to wonder about and watch for the presence and work of the Spirit here and now, in practices of prayer and mindfulness, and through acts of justice, generosity, and kindness. Slowly but surely, we discover that we are the body of Jesus now, his way of being in the world. And that whenever we choose the way of love, Jesus is there. Always.

    McKeegan, Maura Roan

    In this third book in the Old and New series, author Maura Roan McKeegan recounts how all the world spoke one language--until the people of Shinar became too proud, and the Lord came down from heaven and confused their words. What can undo the chaos? And how will Pentecost help God's children understand one another again? Building the Way to Heaven helps young readers to see God's plan of salvation unfold within the stories of the Tower of Babel and Pentecost.

    See biblical typology--the Old Testament people, symbols, and events that foreshadow the New Testament--come to life in Building the Way to Heaven. Recommended for ages 7 and up.

    About the Series

    What do the Old and New Testaments have in common? To answer this question, Maura Roan McKeegan presents biblical typology for children.

    Cries of Jesus from the Cross: A Fulton Sheen Anthology
    Sheen, Archbishop Fulton
    $18.95

    Follow the Lenten Reading Schedule HERE.

    As death approaches, the human heart speaks its greatest words of love to those it holds most dear. So it was with Jesus who in His final hours gave us seven last "words," rich with spiritual meaning for every human soul.

    For the first time ever, Archbishop Fulton Sheen's complete writings and reflections on Christ's last words have been compiled into this one book. Sheen shows how the seven words are, in fact, a full catechism on the spiritual life. From them, you'll learn the secrets to living the Beatitudes, ways to avoid the deadly vices of anger, envy, lust, and pride, and how to cultivate the heavenly virtues of fortitude, prudence, justice, and charity.

    Few books are such an inspiring call to sanctity, and few books are such a spiritual powerhouse. With Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen as your guide, you'll also learn:

    Death on a Friday Afternoon: Meditations on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cro

    Death on a Friday Afternoon: Meditations on the Last Words of Jesus from the Cro
    Neuhaus, Richard John
    $16.99
    Numerous writers and composers have been captivated by the suggestiveness of Jesus' Seven Last Words. But Richard John Neuhaus's sustained exploration of these utterances is something altogether different. Through them he plumbs the depths of human experience and sets forth the central narrative of Western civilization-the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ-in a way that engages the attention of believers, unbelievers, and those who are not sure what they believe. Death on a Friday Afternoon is an invitation to the reader into a spiritual and intellectual exploration of the dark side of human experience with the promise of light and life on the far side of darkness.

    Give Up Worry for Lent!: 40 Days to Finding Peace in Christ

    Give Up Worry for Lent!: 40 Days to Finding Peace in Christ
    Zimak, Gary
    $14.95

    Winner of a third-place award in the backlist beauty category from the Catholic Media Association.

    Catholic author and self-described "recovering worrier" Gary Zimak combines practical spirituality, daily scripture readings, and simple action steps to help you kick the worry habit as part of your Lenten renewal. He shows you how to let go of the anxiety-producing areas of life in order to find the lasting peace that comes from trusting God.

    During the season of Lent, Catholics and other Christians frequently give up something they enjoy as a measure of penance or self-discipline--and often fall back into old habits at the first "Alleluia!" In Give Up Worry for Lent!, Zimak offers fellow worriers practical, scripture-centered advice on how to relinquish the need to control the uncontrollable--not just for Lent but for good--and how to find peace in Christ.

    From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, Zimak guides you to ponder a scripture passage and to apply it to your own life by following four simple steps:

  • read
  • reflect
  • respond
  • pray
  • As you continue to meditate on scripture and practice the simple action steps at the end of each reflection, you will find it easier to replace old worries with new messages of hope and to change your life forever.

    Into His Likeness: Be Transformed as a Disciple of Christ

    Into His Likeness: Be Transformed as a Disciple of Christ
    Sri, Edward
    $16.95

    In the ancient disciple-rabbi relationship, the disciple would follow the rabbi so closely that he would be covered in the dust kicked up from his rabbi's feet. Thousands of years later, though we walk on roads of pavement and not dust, we are still called to be disciples--to follow our Rabbi, Jesus Christ, so closely that we are covered with his life, changed, and made new.

    Into His Likeness provides an approachable but in-depth exploration of how to live as a disciple and experience the transformation Jesus wants to work in our lives. We might desire to live more like Christ, but we know we fall short. This book simply helps us follow those initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, so that we may more intentionally encounter Jesus anew each day and be more disposed to his grace changing us ever more into his likeness.

    Into Your Hands, Father: Abandoning Ourselves to the God Who Loves Us

    Into Your Hands, Father: Abandoning Ourselves to the God Who Loves Us
    Stinissen, Wilfrid
    $12.95
    In the spiritual life, we need a central idea: something so basic and comprehensive that it encompasses everything else. According to Carmelite Father Wilfrid Stinissen, surrender to God, abandonment to the One who loves us completely, is that central reality. The life of Jesus shows us the centrality of abandonment, for it is truly the beginning and the end of his mission on earth.

    In this simple but profound book, Father Stinissen distinguishes three degrees or stages in abandonment. The first stage consists of accepting and assenting to God's will as it manifests itself in all circumstances of life. The second is actively doing God's will at every moment of one's life. In the third stage, abandonment to God is so complete that one has become a tool in God's hands. At this stage it is no longer I who do God's will, but God who accomplishes his will through me.

    Jesus of Nazareth: Baptism to Transfiguration

    Jesus of Nazareth: Baptism to Transfiguration
    Pope Benedict XVI
    $28.00
    Pope Benedict XVI's iconic life of Jesus, a rich, compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of the central figure of the Christian faith.

    "This book is . . . my personal search 'for the face of the Lord.'"--Benedict XVI

    In this bold, momentous work, the Pope seeks to salvage the person of Jesus from today's "popular" depictions and to restore his true identity as discovered in the Gospels. Through his brilliance as a theologian and his personal conviction as a believer, the Pope incites us to encounter Jesus face to face.

    From Jesus of Nazareth ". . . the great question that will be with us throughout this entire book: But what has Jesus really brought, then, if he has not brought world peace, universal prosperity, and a better world? What has he brought? The answer is very simple: God. He has brought God! He has brought the God who once gradually unveiled his countenance first to Abraham, then to Moses and the prophets, and then in the wisdom literature--the God who showed his face only in Israel, even though he was also honored among the pagans in various shadowy guises. It is this God, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, the true God, whom he has brought to the peoples of the earth. He has brought God, and now we know his face, now we can call upon him. Now we know the path that we human beings have to take in this world. Jesus has brought God and with God the truth about where we are going and where we come from: faith, hope, and love."

    Jesus, Friend of My Soul: Reflections for the Lenten Journey

    Jesus, Friend of My Soul: Reflections for the Lenten Journey
    Rupp, Joyce
    $13.95

    Bestselling author and beloved retreat leader Joyce Rupp has offered companionship and gentle guidance throughout the seasons in such books as May I Have This Dance? and Anchors for the Soul. In Jesus, Friend of My Soul, each two-page daily reflection brings our attention to the Lenten season, providing reflections for growth and inviting us to follow Jesus and become more like him.

    "As Christians," Joyce Rupp writes, "we look to the person of Jesus to learn from him." Because our lives are filled to the brim with activity, it is easy to drift away from trying to live as Jesus did, and we find ourselves in need of time to focus on drawing close to him again and learning from his example. In Jesus, Friend of My Soul, Rupp guides us from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday illustrating both how Jesus called his followers to change and how his actions provide us a blueprint for growth.

    Rupp helps us learn from the qualities of Jesus and the actions and teachings that marked his time on earth, including:

  • how Jesus extended mercy after Peter's denials
  • how Jesus trusted in his Father, even as he experienced other emotions when troubling events occurred
  • how Jesus spoke and acted with integrity, which made him a valuable and trustworthy person for others to listen to and follow
  • Each day's reflection begins with a verse from scripture and a meditation centered on Jesus' life, actions, and teachings that are applied to our lives. We are then offered a prayer and an intention to carry with us throughout the day. Each brief reflection gently leads us to new growth in our lives and invites us to reach new depths in our faith. Questions for individual or group study are included.

    Each daily reflection--from Ash Wednesday through the Second Sunday of Easter--begins with thoughts from Father Nouwen on an appropriate theme, supported by Scripture, prayer, and a suggested activity for spiritual growth.
