These carefully crafted meditations allow the reader to feel the joys and sorrows of Christ's life, from his public ministry to his Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Father Sullivan brings the eternal Word of God to bear on the daily struggles of contemporary life. The daily readings end with a practical reflection and a contextual prayer for God's grace to deal with modern day anxieties and hopes. This feature-packed little book includes: \xe2\x80\xa2 Iconic pencil drawings featuring scenes from the life of Christ as well as depictions of modern man encountering Our Lord \xe2\x80\xa2 Meditations and prayers on every major event of Jesus' life from across all four gospels \xe2\x80\xa2 Beautiful prayers that will help us align our will with Christ's will as exposed in his Word. \xe2\x80\xa2 Reflections on the gospels that will encourage us to live the Good News in our everyday lives \xe2\x80\xa2 And much more\xe2\x80\xa6 Only by prayerfully considering the Gospel and its meaning on a daily basis can we draw ourselves closer to unity with Jesus.

Thoughts on the Passion

This booklet was first published w/ Impr in 1887!

As the title suggests, there is a thought or meditation for each day of Lent. Each thought is short - a minute or two - so that even the busiest followers of Christ will find the time. The meditations end with a short petition, like "O Strength of the Weak! help me to find comfort in Thy sorrows!" (Second Day), or, words from Christ, like " Lose not this precious blood which is shed for you! Let it purify your souls, strengthen your wills, regulate your passions, heal all your wounds." (Third Day).

When Lent arrives, this booklet will provide a quick and easy way to remember the reason for the season. 31 page booklet.

The Voyage of the Pax

In writing this allegory to help explain the religious life to the boy oblates in his charge, Dom Bede drew upon the struggles he experienced during his conversion, as well as an experience from his Oxford years, when shipwrecked off the coast of Spain. Left clinging to the wreckage along with his fellow passengers for 17 hours, upon being rescued, he decided to consecrate his life to the service of God in thanksgiving.

The Voyage of the PAX, then, is a thrilling seafaring allegory portraying the journey of life, with its many threats to our souls, as a voyage of several young men, crossing the high seas to reach their home in the Golden City. They must work hard and make difficult decisions in order to pass the straits of Mors and enter into the haven of Æternitas.

This story is a perfect follow-up for those who loved Mother Mary Loyola's The King of the Golden City.

The Collected Works of St. Teresa of Avila, vol. 2

This volume contains two of Teresa's most popular works: The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle.

Shortly after writing The Book of Her Life for her confessor, St. Teresa wrote The Way of Perfection at the request of her nuns who were eager to learn about prayer and contemplation. Throughout this work she teaches her nuns about prayer and also teaches us.

The Interior Castle is considered St. Teresa of Avila’s masterpiece. She wrote this last work in just a few months in 1577, five years before her death. At this point in her life she had been granted the highest mystical graces; this book is the fruit of her lived experience and a deep-felt praise of God for it. Using the image of a castle, Teresa describes the soul’s progressive inner journey through seven dwelling places, until finally reaching the center where, now transformed, it is united with God. paperback, 504 pp

Toward Easter

“O God, who desirest not the death, but the repentance of sinners, in Thy goodness vouchsafe to bless these ashes which we purpose to put upon our heads in token of our lowliness and to obtain forgiveness: so that we who know that we are but ashes…may deserve to obtain from Thy mercy the pardon of all our sins, and the rewards promised to the penitent.” – Meditation on Ash Wednesday.

Fr. Troadec’s best-selling series continues in this third book Toward Easter. Father uses the liturgy of the Lenten season to assist us in our daily prayer, meditation and spiritual growth.

Each of the daily meditations covered in this book includes a:
  • Quote taken from Scripture, the Mass, or the Spiritual Fathers.
  • Meditation: A particular truth of the Faith and how it applies to us.
  • Prayer: Two short daily prayers for the reader to choose from.
  • Thoughts: Daily recollections that illustrate a profound point.
  • Resolution: Three simple and practical resolutions.
Anyone looking to draw closer to God through the liturgy of His Church while developing the habit of daily spiritual reading and meditation needs to read this series!

The Collected Letters of St. Teresa of Avila, vol 2: 1578-1582
The Collected Letters of St. Teresa of Avila, vol 2: 1578-1582
Contains Letters from 1578 to 1582 Includes Biographical Sketches, Sources for the Biographical Sketches and Index. More Information This second and final volume of St. Teresa's correspondence begins with the year 1578, a most troubling time for Teresa. A keen observer of the reality around her as well as within, Teresa in these letters focuses light on many of the struggles in both the Carmelite order and the church of sixteenth-century Spain. She introduces us to major personalities who have left their mark on history. Through her letters historians gain a better knowledge of the chronology of events in Teresa's life and how she related to the diverse people she had dealings with. A number of everyday particulars that compilers and editors of those times considered unimportant are today prized. Her worries, her troubles and triumphs, her expressions of sadness and joy, are all present here. With a compelling spontaneity, these letters disclose a Teresa in a complex variety of circumstances. The extraordinary gifts of grace bestowed by God on this Spanish Madre fortified her for a demanding ministry of service which entailed heavy responsibilities and that drew her contemplative soul into a whirl of activities. Because of the limited means of travel and communication in the sixteenth century, the organization of a reform like hers, with its unavoidable business matters, had to be dealt with chiefly through correspondence, a chafing duty that became one of Teresa's greatest trials. She often repeated that letter-writing was her biggest burden, a wearisome task that cost her more than all the miserable roads and bad weather experienced on her journeys through Spain. With its endnotes, biographical sketches, and above all, fresh translation, this second volume of Teresa's Collected Letters opens again another door into the fascinating world of this saint, one of the greatest women history has known. 661pp

My Way of Life
My Way of Life
The Summa simplified for everyone. Saint Thomas Aquinas's Summa Theologica is one of the most influential and significant works in the history of the world, but because of its' breadth and scope it is generally considered to be almost inaccessible to most readers. Until now. In My Way of Life Fathers Walter Farrell and Martin J. Healy champion a brilliant summation of the Thomistic doctrines that offers the reader an encounter with wisdom and the use of that wisdom in understanding and knowing our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ. My Way of Life presents small, concise portions of the Summa in a manageable format. This work will allow the reader to consider some of the highest thoughts of one of history's greatest minds and apply them to the modern world, including: \xe2\x80\xa2 The Oneness of God \xe2\x80\xa2 The nature of Angels (p. 63) \xe2\x80\xa2 The hierarchy of angels, demons, and humans (p. 121) \xe2\x80\xa2 Man's disposition to pursue happiness \xe2\x80\xa2 The Divine Life in man \xe2\x80\xa2 The Incarnation Jesus and its ramifications (p. 443) \xe2\x80\xa2 The Last Things (Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell) With My Way of Life the timelessness of the Summa is now accessible to all. In a world that seems to simultaneously advance in some areas and regress in others, the Summa Theologica powerfully reminds the reader that by definition, the true, and the good, and the beautiful never change.
