'One of Fr. Faber\'s greatest books; and definitely his most encouraging; for it was written precisely to help us save our souls by "serving Jesus out of love;" for "everything comes easy to love." Gives us powerful motives for loving God. Says if we did; it would be with us as it was with Jacob working to earn the hand of Rachel: "Years would seem but days; for the greatness of our love."

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.

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 Sign of the Cross
By Msgr. Gaumé The holy Sign of the Cross is the most important prayer and symbol of our Christian faith. It is at once the image of Christ's passion, the sign of the redemption of all mankind, the awesome testament of the destruction of the power of the devil and of his kingdom on earth. The resurrection is the promise and seal and guarantee of eternal life which consummated the work of the Cross. Christians rejoice and the demons tremble to see the Sign of the Cross emblazoned everywhere as proof of Christ's victory over the world. Christ said "all power is given to me in heaven and on earth" and the Cross is the seat of that power. There is no place on earth where a person who makes the Sign of the Cross is not immediately recognized as a Catholic, and there is no miracle that has not been worked under this sign. It is the "nuclear bomb" of prayers and with it the faithful can clear away all enemies and temptations with the simplest of wordless gestures. Msgr. Gaumé has compiled a magnificent collection of history and commentary from the saints and fathers and doctors, as well as his own meditations and exhortations regarding this most powerful prayer. All Catholics should avail themselves of this information and make it fruitful in their own lives.

I shall commence today by speaking of the power and beauty of that organ, of the noble use which ought to be made of it, and of the many advantages we may derive from it.\xc2\xbf There is precious little teaching on the topics covered in these instructions which is accessible to the average man and woman of today. 268pp'

' Few realize that a person can pursue a truly supernatural vocation by consecrating himself or herself to perpetual celibacy while yet living in the world. Here Fr. Unger describes the main guidelines for such a religious vocation, showing the nature and the manner of dedicating oneself to it. The author gives the history in the Church of consecrated celibate living, plus some basic helps in safeguarding purity in such a life. Based on the Pope Pius XII encyclical On Holy Virginity, this book shows that the consecrated life in the world is just one more example of the rich Tradition of the Church in providing for the needs of all her children.

At the time a certain religious, now dead, used often to speak with me about prayer, and about the labor she had experienced in prayer. I used to notice how easily she would fly along a line of contemplation if the tiniest suggestion were made to her, and several times I ventured to make such suggestions in the shape of points for meditation. The points here collected were written for this purpose. They were written for two only; but others who have seen them have found them useful and have asked that they may be printed. If they are a help to any in prayer, I can only be grateful to our Lord.\xc2\xbf 60pp'

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
