Thoughts on the Religious Life

By Rev. F. Lasance.

The virtues are treated clearly and practically, and in a manner that incites the soul to their exercise. We cherish the hope and pray that this book may fall into the hands of many, and, by the grace of God, be instrumental in rousing some from spiritual torpidity due to the blandishments of the world; in opening their eyes to the grandeur of that enclosed garden of the Lord, where the fairest flowers of virtue - above all, the rose of charity - bloom in unsurpassed abundance and splendour of development; and in attracting them to that school of sanctity, where, as St. Bernard says, “Men lead a purer life, fall into sin less frequently, rise again more easily, walk more cautiously, rest more tranquilly, die more happily, and reap a richer reward for eternity.” 927 pp.

The Voyage of the Pax (2 CD audiobook)

SET SAIL FOR THE GOLDEN CITY TO MEET THE KING!

Now the whole family can join the wise Captain and the young Mariners of the good ship Pax on their perilous journey to the Golden City. By employing the dangers of a long sea voyage as a powerful allegory for the way of salvation, English Benedictine dom. Bede Camm (1864-1942) created an exciting way to introduce young hearts to the joys and challenges of the religious life. It was the author's hope that, "Perhaps indeed [The Voyage of the Pax] may help to develop in some young heart the germ of a nascent vocation."

Originally written to be read aloud, this new audio presentation of The Voyage of the Pax features music, sound effects, and a talented cast of young voice actors to bring dom. Bede's classic tale to life as never before. This presentation is sure to join Mother Mary Loyola’s beloved The King of the Golden City as another family favourite.

A Right to Be Merry
A Right to Be Merry
'Can life really be "merry" inside a Poor Clare cloister? This happy book reveals the challenges, cares and joys of that cloistered life from an "insiders" view. The poet\'s cry, "O world, I cannot hold you close enough!" is the heart\'s cry of the enclosed contemplative. No one who has not lived in a cloister can fully understand just how intertwined are the lives of cloistered nuns. Their hearts may be wide as the universe and bottomless as eternity, but the practical details of their living are boxed up into the small area within the enclosure walls. Cloistered nuns rub souls as well as elbows all their lives, and if they do not step out of themselves to get a true perspective, they can become small-souled and petty and remain immature children all their lives long. But, as Mother Mary Francis points out, they also have "as great a right to be merry as any lady in the world." Nor is merriment all. "Hidden away from the glare and noise of worldly living," Mother Mary Francis writes, "we are enclosed in the womb of holy Church. I walk down the cloisters, and my heart moves to a single tune: Lord, it is good, so good to be here!" 232pp'
