Little book of Holy Gratitude

Little book of Holy Gratitude

$14.95
More Info

Sharp penance for remembered sins helps stouthearted Christians seize heaven, but gentler souls like Our Blessed Lady and scores of her saints have trod a different path. Their souls are possessed by gratitude, inspired by the remembrance of past benefits, and filled with wonder at the abundant loving-kindness of God.

As Father Faber shows, gratitude is the fertile soil from which springs an ardent, exuberant love of Christ - a love that can be yours as well. These wise pages reveal the critical role that gratitude plays in your sanctification, and they'll remind you of the many things the Lord has given you for which you should be grateful each moment of every day. Here you'll also learn:

  • That thanksgiving is the very essence of Christian worship
  • Why gratitude is easiest way to heaven and the surest path to joy
  • How gratitude dissolves pride even faster than penance
  • How gratitude can make you like the Angels themselves
  • That ingratitude is the hidden sin of too many good people (What about you?)
  • Why you should even be grateful -- yes -- for blessings received by your enemies
  • How gratitude often wins souls more quickly than preaching
  • Why it's scandalous that we neglect gratitude more than prayer
  • Why you should even be grateful for your troubles
  • That gratitude brings far more blessings than most of us ever suspect
  • Hear in this small book the voices of so many saints who knew that gratitude is the very key to holiness: St. Alphonsus de Liguori, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Bonaventure, St. Bridget of Sweden, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Francis de Sales, St. Francis Xavier, St. Gertrude, St. Gregory of Nyssa, St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Jane Frances de Chantal, St. Jerome, St. John Chrysostom, St. John of Avila, St. John of God, St. Lawrence Justinian, St. Louis of France, St. Peter Faber, St. Philip Neri, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Thomas Aquinas, and many others.

    More Info
    It is said that children learn what they live. But children also teach the adults in their lives lessons on subjects such as unconditional love, self-sacrifice, self-forgetfulness, patience and more. The ordinary way an adult learns these things from his or her children is by caring for them.

    Every parent knows that. But some extraordinary children seem sent by God to teach us about the -big questions- such as life, death, suffering, and the existence of God. The children in this book, all of whom suffered terribly during their short lives, bore witness to God's love and an understanding of the meaning of suffering and -what to do with it- that belied their years. And their teaching was not limited to their immediate family: Everyone with whom they came into contact, from doctors and nurses, to major political figures and popes to family friends and other children, was profoundly affected by the encounter.

    This book will make you cry, yes, but the tears will be mixed with something akin to joy at the beauty of the short lives of Brendan, Margaret, and Audrey, and awe at the grace and dignity with which they bore their crosses, lived and enjoyed this life, and ultimately left it to be with the God they all loved. In this time in which there is so much despair and sadness, and in this world in which we are so frequently reminded that it can truly be a -vale of tears, - let the Littlest Suffering Souls remind you that this present life is not all there is; let the Littlest Suffering Souls point you to heaven and to Christ.

    "Living calm is a revised edition of Fighting mad, published in 2014"--Title page verso.

    This is the book you need to master your anger so your anger won’t master you. Popular TV host, clinical psychologist, and best-selling author Dr. Ray Guarendi incisively cuts to the heart of the matter to help you determine whether your anger response is justified ― and what to do when it isn’t.

    Dr. Guarendi unpacks for you the many types of anger and the types of people who suffer most from anger. For some, anger is a trait; for others, it is a state. Some are “wired fiery,” with an anger that is always simmering or on a low boil, while the anger of others often comes and goes quickly.

    You’ll learn why feelings aren’t neutral, and whether anger is a product of your nature or nurture. You’ll also learn the difference between righteous and unrighteous anger ― and why those closest to us can anger us the most.

    In his straightforward, engaging, and humorous style, Dr. Guarendi also unveils healthy strategies for coping with those who make us angry and how we can make choices to regulate our emotions. From this compelling, life-changing book, you will also learn:

    • The danger of harboring negative feelings
    • The surprising benefits of anger, as well as its liabilities
    • Pros and cons of venting anger and of holding it inside
    • The advantages of exercising self-control in the heat of an argument
    • Ways to take ownership of your thoughts, words, and actions

    Best of all, this book will help you grow in virtue as you develop Christlike patience, charity, self-control, forgiveness, and humility in your relationships with others. By responding prayerfully and choosing to love deliberately, you will attain greater happiness, clarity of mind, and peace of heart.

    Looking for Lazarus a preview of the resurrection

    $14.95
    More Info

    Lazarus and his sisters Martha and Mary are the only figures in the New Testament described as friends of Jesus. He enters the Gospel of St. John as mysteriously as he exits. After receiving word of Lazarus' illness, Jesus delays his departure, taking time which we imagine could have been cut short to save his friend’s life.

    In this book on Lazarus' death and resurrection, we delve into the various circumstances of time and place to ponder why.

    What did the Lord want to tell us about death? Was Lazarus truly dead? Why did Jesus announce his death, only to proclaim that he would awaken him? How does this event point to Jesus' own death and Resurrection?

    For those who believe in Jesus Christ, no death is final. Jesus shows us that, through him, the kingdom of death is broken in two. He prefigures the glory of his own resurrection, following his tragic death on a cross, taking place only days after the raising of Lazarus.

    An extraordinary spiritual practice with the power to transform the ordinary life Even in our modern society, one of the most effective ways to develop a dynamic relationship with God is through the 450-year-old practice of Ignatian spirituality.

    The 40 concise meditations contained in Making Choices in Christ explore what Ignatian spirituality is and isn't; what it means to live by it; Ignatius's legacy to all who practice the spirituality; and its important concepts and experiences, most notably the Spiritual Exercises.
    An ideal resource to be used before or during a retreat with the Exercises, this book can guide any layperson at any time toward a life-changing encounter with the living God.

    Making Room for God: Decluttering and the Spiritual Life

    $14.95
    More Info
    If cleanliness is next to godliness, do our closets have anything to say about the state of our souls?

    Decluttering became trendy with the 2014 release of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. And while there's no shortage of secular books promoting the practice, Making Room for God is the first book on organization from a Catholic perspective. Self-proclaimed pack rat Mary Elizabeth Sperry will help you make decluttering a prayerful, peace-filled, and soul-expanding experience.

    Popular Catholic speaker and Bible expert Mary Elizabeth Sperry explores the relationship between our stuff and Catholic beliefs about grace, sin, repentance, prayer, and the common good. She boldly affirms the goodness of our stuff and of God's abiding presence in the worldly goods all around us. She also reminds us of how sin can distort our relationships, including the ones we have with our possessions. Through spiritual disciplines--especially prayer, fasting, and almsgiving--we can protect this relationship so that we own our possessions but they don't own us.

    Making Room for God offers an enticing and entertaining approach to decluttering, discipleship, and the spiritual life that makes tidying up seem almost fun. Writing from an unabashedly Catholic perspective and with convincing practicality, Sperry looks at the role of material goods in the life of a follower of Jesus. Each chapter includes humorous and often self-deprecating details of the author's own journey through decluttering to help us believe that we, too, can simplify. Alongside these adventures are Sperry's rich spiritual insights gleaned from extensive knowledge of the Church's tradition and helpful exercises for freeing ourselves from clutter and the temptation to sin it so often harbors.

    Sperry draws liberally from the Bible, liturgy, Fathers of the Church, lives of the saints, and Church teaching--especially that of Pope Francis--as she explores the relationship between our stuff and our spiritual lives. Practical elements offer a step-by-step approach to decluttering living spaces, getting rid of unused and excess items, and limiting future accumulation.

    A book for finding purpose and strength in times of great despair, the international best-seller is still just as relevant today as when it was first published.

    "This is a book I reread a lot . . . it gives me hope . . . it gives me a sense of strength."
    --Anderson Cooper, Anderson Cooper 360/CNN

    This seminal book, which has been called "one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought" by Carl Rogers and "one of the great books of our time" by Harold Kushner, has been translated into more than fifty languages and sold over sixteen million copies. "An enduring work of survival literature," according to the New York Times, Viktor Frankl's riveting account of his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and his insightful exploration of the human will to find meaning in spite of the worst adversity, has offered solace and guidance to generations of readers since it was first published in 1946. At the heart of Frankl's theory of logotherapy (from the Greek word for "meaning") is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but rather the discovery and pursuit of what the individual finds meaningful. Today, as new generations face new challenges and an ever more complex and uncertain world, Frankl's classic work continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living, in spite of all obstacles.

    A must-read companion to this classic work, a new, never-before-published work by Frankl entitled Yes to Life: In Spite of Everything, is now available in English.

    Modeled on the fifteenth-century classic The Imitation of Christ, this well-loved Clarence Enzler masterwork helps Christians today hear the voice of Christ. In this powerful book, Christ addresses you personally as "my other self," urging you to embody his love and compassion for others.

    Through a creative dialogue between Jesus and the reader, Clarence Enzler leads you through the journey of the Christian life, beginning with the call to live in friendship with Christ and fulfill his desire. Enzler then examines elements of the Christian life: detachment, virtue, prayer, the Eucharist, and avoidance of sin. Finally, he explores the goal of the journey--a life of union with Christ as his disciple and complete joy with him in eternity.

    Each chapter includes short, eloquent meditations on scripture and beautiful prayers, making My Other Self ideal as a daily devotional and source of prayer.

    "A valuable contribution to the reflection on the relationship between science and religion, presenting very sound arguments with abundant documentation and a casual style that makes for an enriching and gratifying read."
    --Fernando Sols, professor of condensed matter physics, Complutense University of Madrid

    Here is the book you need to challenge atheists and agnostics to defend their ideologies logically and rationally and to fortify your own beliefs. In this distinctive book, which draws from all fields of science, José Carlos González-Hurtado presents a preponderance of empirical evidence for theism in a way that you can easily understand and explains how atheism twists reality to justify its view by "selective skepticism."

    This thoroughly documented incisive work will strengthen your view of the existence of God, regardless of your beliefs about evolution or lack of religious affiliation. González-Hurtado explains how the majority of mathematicians and scientists who are remembered for remarkable discoveries in mathematics, physics, quantum mechanics, chemistry, cosmology, biology, and more were theists -- and he provides many of their accounts. In these enlightening pages, you will find:

  • How the Second Law of Thermodynamics, cited by Albert Einstein as the most important, points to God
  • Answers about the Big Bang Theory, evolution, and other much-debated questions
  • How NASA explorers confirmed the standard cosmological argument
  • Ways in which mathematical theorems, statistics, and probabilities indicate God's existence
  • Twenty constants that allow us to exist, and seven aspects of St. Anselm's ontological argument for God
  • How St. Augustine's words were verified by science
  • In addition, González-Hurtado illustrates why string theory and multiverses are best left for Hollywood movies, how verified results in cosmic microwave background and other observations verify the creation of the universe, and how multiple attempts to support the "theory of the bouncing universe" are disproved.

    Although the science behind a Necessary Being is irrefutable, a small but vocal number of scientists refuse to accept the evidence. Some oppressive regimes have gone so far as to persecute or kill those who espouse cosmology, but Hurtado exposes these crimes and debunks their illogical thinking.

    You will learn the difference between creationism and Intelligent Design and what it really means to live by Darwinian laws. As even Stephen Hawking admitted, "The universe has not always existed; on the contrary, the universe, and time itself, had a beginning with the Big Bang."

    We tend to think that miracles are all God's doing, that our cooperation is not important. But in truth, part of every miracle taking place is a profound faith expressed through action. In No Faith, No Miracles Arlene McGannon takes Gospel accounts of Jesus' miracles a step further by applying each account to our own lives. Rather than expecting the miraculous, Jesus calls us to recognize our role in the making of miracles.

    Just before she died of brain cancer in April 2020, Macrina Wiederkehr gifted her friend and coauthor Joyce Rupp with one of the many journals she kept over the years where she reflected on scripture and her own spirituality. Rupp writes in the foreword for Open Wide My Heart, "I observed certain currents of yearning and faithfulness that remained throughout the decades: a thirst for an ever-fuller relationship with the Holy One; a tremendous respect for scripture as an incentive for spiritual transformation; a recognition of not being all she hoped to be regarding her inner growth; and a continual return to a belief in her essential goodness."

    That is the essence of Open Wide My Heart, which pulls together two years of personal reflections by Wiederkehr, a beloved spiritual author, popular retreat leader, and Benedictine sister. These brief yet poignant writings serve as guideposts as you begin or deepen your scripture study and offer gentle direction for your faith and a better understanding of daily life.

    Wiederkehr also shares nuggets of spiritual wisdom she gained in her reading, including

  • experiencing God in the everyday;
  • living fully present in the moment; and
  • accepting the grace that comes from God, other people in your life, and the world around you.
  • Open Wide My Heart is an invitation to learn from a bestselling spiritual writer's practice and witness her deeply meditative approach to scripture and life. In the process, you can grow in confidence in your own scripture reading.

    "In sickness and in health . . ."

    At age 29, Matt Weber was newly married to Nell, the girl of his dreams. They had bought their first house, adopted a dog, and looked forward to a blissful first year together. But shortly after his honeymoon, Matt's recurring, severe stomach troubles send him to the emergency room--and after a five-hour, life-saving surgery in which a third of his stomach is removed, Matt and Nell's plans for their new life are dramatically altered.

    Forced to undergo a lengthy and painful recovery, Matt finds that his relationships with God, himself, and his wife are forever changed. Operating on Faith is the gutsy story of a happy-go-lucky Catholic guy whose life was literally burst apart then stitched back together--with faith in the God he'd always known, the sweet and inexhaustible love of his wife, and healthy if sometimes irreverent doses of humor.

    For everyone who's ever had plans and expectations upset by life's events, Operating on Faith proves just how necessary love, faith, and a little grit are in facing major challenges and emerging on the other side.
