A Companion to the Summa

A Companion to the Summa
by Fr. Walter Farrell, O. P. 

Order the 4 Volume set This magnificent set of four books is an exposition and guide to the entire Summa of Saint Thomas Aquinas. It was written by one of the premier Dominican Thomistic scholars who were active in the scholastic revival of the 1930s and 40s. These books contain the entire Summa transposed into modern English prose, thereby making accessible, for those who are not trained philosophers, the complete theology of Saint Thomas’s Summa.

The composition of these four books matches up perfectly with each of the 614 questions of the Summa. This book is meant to be read alongside the actual Summa in order to make it more easily understood by the average reader.


Volume One - The Architect of the Universe - 408 pages

Volume Two - The Pursuit of Happiness - 412 pages

Volume Three - The Fullness of Life - 462 pages

Volume Four -  The Way of Life - 430 Pages

The Author

Father Farrell’s four-part Companion to the Summa has been responsible for much of the renewed interest in Thomism in the United States. It is required reading for many Catholic college students and “unrequired reading” for thousands of other lovers of St. Thomas.

Its author was born in Chicago in 1902. He attended Dominican schools and was ordained in the Dominican order in 1927, then going to the University of Fribourg for his S.T.D. degree. In 1940 he was awarded the seldom given Dominican honor of the Master of Sacred Theology degree. He served as a Navy chaplain during World War II and was then stationed at the Dominican Houses of Studies in Washington, D. C. and River Forest, Illinois until his death in 1951.

Treatise on the Spiritual Life
Treatise on the Spiritual Life
by St Vincent Ferrer

Any book written by a saint is a treasure, but a book written by one, who was hailed in his time as the angel of the Apocalypse, his Treatise consists of nineteen brief instructions on a variety of timeless spiritual topics, all but two of which are easily translatable to the lay apostles of today. The reader will find especially relevant this great preacher's remedies for getting rid of the devil, keeping him always at bay, and discerning true from false revelations.

If you want to be a saint, do as Louis Bertrand did, and take to your heart and to your domestic hearth this handy and portable book, written by a thaumaturgus (wonder-worker) who raised over thirty dead people to life and who converted twenty-five thousand Jews, thousands of Mohammedans, and countless thousands of heretics and sinners of all kinds.

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.

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.

On the Passion of Christ According to the Four Evangelists
A perfect complement to the movie, The Passion of The Christ, this book presents reflections that will enable the reader to focus deeply on the true meaning of the Passion. In his famous spiritual classic, The Imitation of Christ, Thomas a Kempis reminds the reader that in order to become a follower of Christ one must imitate his life, and to accomplish this he adds: "Let it then be our main concern to meditate on the life of Jesus Christ. It is impossible to imitate Christ without first knowing him, and the best way of getting to know him is by meditating on his life as it is described in the four Gospels."

Thus, in this wonderful meditation book, perfect for Lent, or any time of the year, the great spiritual writer and monk gives profound, short reflections on Gospel passages about the passion and death of Christ. Each chapter, focusing on a specific aspect of the Passion of Our Lord, gives a prayer, a meditation and spiritual advice and closes with another short prayer.

Very much in the same style as his The Imitation of Christ, this book covers the entire Passion, and makes great spiritual reading for anyone. Illustrated.

Overcoming Worldly Concerns
Overcoming Worldly Concerns by Archbishop Alban Goodier

No matter how pure or virtuous your intentions may be, you can easily get so caught up in temporal pursuits — “the things of this world” — that you forget about God and His intimate, sustained involvement in your life. But with help from this book, you can turn that around by making an examination of your life that will orient you on the fertile path to Jesus Christ.

It's not enough simply to call yourself a Christian or attend Sunday Mass: you need to decide to live for God rather than for yourself. To help you do so, Archbishop Alban Goodier explains how giving yourself to God will ennoble you and bring you great rewards. He details the many ways in which you will gain happiness by rising above the concerns of this world, even amid the cares and duties of your daily life! He shows how the very fact of God's existence — to say nothing of achieving spiritual closeness with Him — gives meaning and dignity to your life in a way that worldly possessions or success never can.

Uncompromising, incisive, and comprehensive, Overcoming Worldly Concerns is a much-needed wake-up call for every “comfortable Christian.”

Abandon yourself fully to God and learn:

  • The little-known fact that will inspire you to resist sin with all your strength

  • The ways in which you've been throwing away God's grace 

  • The secret of the saints that makes them such a powerful help for you today — if only you ask for that help

  • How you can be certain of God's love for you at any given moment

  • How you can arm yourself for the spiritual warfare that is sure to beset your soul

  • The many forms and levels of prayer (and why just knowing them is not enough)

  • The most common hindrances to prayer — and how to overcome them

'Archbishop Goodier published these 50 Meditations in 1925. In his author\xc2\xbfs preface he wrote \xc2\xbfThese notes were written a long time ago in Lent, 1909. 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'

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.

This volume is the last in the best-selling daily liturgical reader and meditation series.

With Christ (Hardcover)
With Christ
by Blessed Columba Marmion

With Christ is an anthology of writings from Blessed Marmion’s outstanding trilogy:
Christ, the Life of the Soul; Christ in His Mysteries; and Christ, the Ideal of the Monk; as well as from his letters in Union with God and personal notes on his own spiritual life—focused on the theme of suffering and sharing in the Passion of Our Lord. In the words of the editor of this volume, Dom Raymund Thibaut, “It is most important to know how to accept suffering; and surely the supreme work of mercy is that difficult science, that delicate art, of teaching men to carry their cross. Not everyone can excel in this art or teach this exalted science effectively, but only he who has a great heart and the supernatural experience of sorrow.” Dom Thibaud continues, “Wherever Dom Marmion goes, he sheds light; he lends a helping hand; he calms and comforts; he inflames hearts, strengthens wills, and sanctifies souls. This overflowing charity, this beneficent zeal, as well as the ring of conviction in his faith and the authority acquired from experience in guiding souls—all these made his words singularly persuasive.” Wholly surrendered to the love of Christ, he wanted only to give Christ to souls and souls to Christ. “We must contemplate Jesus,” Blessed Marmion wrote, “He is God revealing Himself to us. Through a humble faith in Him we have the solution to all our difficulties.” Dom Marmion often thought of Christ as “the Man of sorrows” and his devotion to the Passion of Jesus is well known. He knew also that nothing is so fruitful as union with the source of living water which flows from Calvary and gives every trial a sovereign virtue and an indefinite power to purchase redemption for the entire world. A book to be read especially during the great penitential seasons of the liturgical year, and in times of temptation, trial, and loss—here are words that can restore or strengthen confidence, bestow peace, and stabilize the soul in the supreme security of abandonment to God.

The Way of the Cross
In The Way of the Cross, Caryll Houselander accomplishes two things: first, by her imaginative re-creation of the Passion and Death of Our Lord, realized with intensity, detail, and depth, she brings a drama of anguish and tragedy to our immediate awareness; secondly, she shows us the Passion reflected in all human suffering. We can no more be detached spectators of the Passion than we can be detached spectators of the griefs and travails of the contemporary world. As Caryll Houselander writes, the part we are called to play is that of Veronica, coming forward to wipe the tears and sorrows from every stricken face we meet. And each time we have the courage and compassion to do so, we find the same image left on the veil. These profound meditations on the Stations of the Cross allow the reader to walk in the footsteps of Christ on that distant yet ever-present Good Friday.

Classic Catholic Meditations
Classic Catholic Meditations
Without regular reminders of God and a sure routine of prayer and meditation, your inner life shrivels up, your prayers grow listless, the sacraments become habits, and even the Mass seems routine. Daily meditation is a proven remedy for such dangerous spiritual lethargy, and in our day it's more important than ever before. That's why the wise Dominican priest Bede Jarrett penned for busy Catholics like you the more than 120 meditations collected here \xe2\x80\x94 none longer than 1,000 words \xe2\x80\x94 to ensure that each of your days contains at least one brief, thoughtful encounter with God. Each meditation calls to your attention some truth of revelation to help you keep in mind that God wants you to be a saint and to help you attain that lofty goal, no matter how secular your circumstances may be or how dry your spirits. You don't know how to meditate? No problem. Meditation is simply prayer of the mind and heart, a kind of prayer that Fr. Jarrett teaches you here in a page or two. Once you learn it, you'll find yourself reaping the rich spiritual harvest that regular meditation brings. In fact, within days of taking up these pages, you'll be surprised to find yourself habitually addressing yourself to God \xe2\x80\x94 and not merely during crises, but also in the ordinary course of your day, regularly calling on Him for strength and quietly speaking to Him out of the fullness of your heart. Classic Catholic Meditations will calm your soul, enrich your faith, and help you pray. Why not begin today? 477pp

The Catholic Sermon Notes of Saint John Henry Newman

ARRANGED ACCORDING TO THE CALENDAR OF THE TRADITIONAL ROMAN RITE.

St. John Henry Newman (1801-1890) converted from Anglicanism to Catholicism in 1845. Ordained to the Catholic priesthood in 1846, he became a Cardinal in 1879. His writings, noted for their combination of gentle warmth and firm conviction, have helped innumerable non-Catholics overcome their fears and objections in order to embrace the Catholic faith.

Cardinal Newman has been largely known as a great preacher from his “Parochial and Plain Sermons”, which come from his Anglican days. His sermons as a Catholic priest were generally not written down, but many of his notes for these have been preserved. These notes were collected by the Fathers of the Birmingham Oratory, which Newman founded, and were originally published more than a century ago. Largely forgotten for many decades, these notes have now been rearranged according to the liturgical calendar of the traditional Roman Rite.

Cardinal Newman’s Sermon Notes reveal his deeply Biblical approach to homiletics, combined with reflections of a theological, ascetical and apologetic character. As a guide to the liturgical year or as a book for meditation and sermon talking points, it will be of great help to priests wanting to preach in the spirit of its illustrious author.

Christ’s Final Words on the Cross

Do we know Christ’s final words on the Cross? Do we know how they apply to our spiritual life today, in the 21st century?

In this beautiful book, Father Jean-Dominique O.P. takes each of Christ’s seven last words and shows how they apply to all times of History, but especially to our day when the Church and the world are plunged in so much darkness, just like they were at the supreme moment of Christ’s life on earth, His final hours on Calvary.

The seven words of Christ on the Cross are a true guide for Christian life in times of apostasy and revolution. They are an endless source of light, joy and peace. They kindle in the hearts of Catholics a sincere love of the Cross and the Divine Crucified, as well as a proactive hope. Therefore, it is time, more than ever before, to receive this “light which shines in the darkness”.

God Alone Volume 2
St. Louis de Montfort was an inspired and effective missionary not only because he was a skilled and fiery preacher and profound theologian of the spiritual life. He also made great use of his considerable artistic talents, one of which was a poetic skill which he pressed into service for the composition of cantiques (hymns) to use during his missions. Song was so important to Fr. de Montfort both as a man as well as a preacher that he composed over 160 hymns. The full collection of his cantiques has not been available in English translation until now. This book contains the entire collection of St Louis de Montfort's cantiques, available in English for the first time.

Treatise on the Love of God hardcover
By St Francis de Sales

"This Treatise which I now present you, may be in some way serviceable to you, and that in it you will meet with many wholesome considerations which you would not elsewhere so easily find. We all look towards the glory of holy love. My intention is only to represent simply and naively, without art, still more without false colours, the history of the birth, progress, decay, operations, properties, advantages and excellences of divine love."
