His life combined the apostolic zeal of Saint Dominic, the simple love for creation of Saint Francis and the endless compassion for the poor and sick of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. In 1962, he became one of the few saints canonized by Pope John XXIII. Saint Martin did not write any books or preach any sermons. His life was his preaching. He initiated a new expression of the spiritual life radical, simple and holy.

The author is well imbued with the spirit of Martin de Porres as a fellow Dominican and as a student who lived in the area where Martin grew up and ministered in Peru. As he states in the Introduction to this book, I have spent many hours snooping around and praying in many of Martins secret hideouts! Each chapter concludes with pertinent reflection questions that can be used for group discussion or personal reflection. Come explore the life andspirituality of this poor friar from South America who now lives in the splendor of Gods kingdom.

Born the fourth child of a family of minor nobility and the great-nephew of Voltaire, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was a well-respected scientist and a Jesuit priest who tirelessly pursued the connection between science and religion. He felt that only through purity of heart and not pure science, is one ableto discover, with certainty, a creator behind the forces of nature. Seek Christ in all of creation. A mystic and visionary, Pierres spirituality unites what seems to be contradictory experiencesintellect and adoration, science and religion, evolution and creation. Pierre believed that creation was not a single act, but a process that has never stopped; a great continuous gesture which spans across the totality of time; the universe is clay in the hands of the Creator, molded into the infinite possibilities that lay before us. Ultimately, it is here, with open hearts to the world around us, that we find the fundamental energy and the manifestation of God in the universelove of Christ, love of neighbor and love of all creation. Enjoy your time with Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and be prepared to be surprised as you journey with one of the most engaging spiritual figures of our time.

Eugene de Mazenod, the founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, is not very widely known, despite being canonized as saint in 1995.

In this book, Bernard Dullier selects for us the major transformative moments from the life of Eugene de Mazenod and key texts from his writings to invite us into a deeper vision of discipleship and service.

product image
$12.95

Through a series of imaginary conversations, Rev. Michel Lafon introduces us to the life and spirituality of St. Jeanne Jugan, foundress of the Little Sisters of the Poor. As one who gave herself entirely to God and the aged poor, Jeanne Jugan is a friend and patron of the elderly but she is more than that. In our materialistic culture she calls us to live the Beatitudes, trusting that God will provide. She challenges young people to refuse God nothing in following his call. No matter what our age or vocation, she invites us to do everything through love. After founding the Little Sisters of the Poor by welcoming the needy elderly into her home and caring for them with extraordinary love and dignity, Jeanne Jugan disappeared into the shadows. She spent her last years in forced retirement among the novices and young Sisters at the community motherhouse, quietly instilling generations of her daughters with her spirit of humility and charity. At the time of her death there were already 2,400 Little Sisters serving the elderly in nine countries. Today over 2,700 Little Sisters continue the charism and work of St. Jeanne Jugan in thirty-two countries around the world.Spiritual journeys are best experienced with a guide. Now you can receive guidance from some of the seminal spiritual figures of all time. Each volume in the 15 Days of Prayer series contains: a brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume, a guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat, and 15 meditations sessions with focus points and reflection guides.

Francis was a humble servant of the poor and an exceptionally skilled evangelist, preaching Catholic doctrine with tremendous love and patience, often in the face of grave danger. He was influential in the revival of French Catholicism in the 17th century and was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1877. Give thanks to God The only way of spiritual progress, Francis teaches, is through an opening to the Holy Spirit. It is he who sanctifies us, it is he who makes us understand the Fathers loving plan, realized in Jesus Christ, the Savior. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life (Jn 3:16). To make a retreat with Saint Francis de Sales, to pray with him under his direction, is to renew our outlook on the grandeur of God and his goodness to us.

His life was dedicated to studying, lecturing and writing his major works were Summa contra Gentes and Summa Theologica but Thomas was also a mystic, engaging in deeply contemplative prayer that was sometimes ecstatic. In 1272 he experienced a divine revelation, after which he declared his writings so much straw in comparison to what he had seen, and composed no more in the brief period before his death. Sit at the Masters Feet Thomas Aquinas as spiritual guide is inseparable from Thomas Aquinas as teacher; 15 days of prayer with Saint Thomas is also 15 days of absorbing the teachings of the Angelic Doctor. From the nature of God to the Blessed Virgin, from the body of Christ offered on Calvary to the body of Christ incarnate in the Church, here is a lucid distillation of Saint Thomass thought and philosophy an invitation to a 15-day period of reflection and prayer with the Universal Doctor.

in
product image
$15.99
In this compelling new book, Brian O’Neel tells the stories of martyrs associated with North America. Some are from other countries and died in their attempts to spread the faith on this continent. Some were born on this continent but died doing missionary work in other lands. Some were individual martyrs, and some were part of an heroic group. Some were “white martyrs” who, although they did not shed their blood for the faith, suffered much for the spread of their faith. The book includes:
  • A lively presentation about each martyr (or group of martyrs)
  • A practical application for the reader
  • A historical context for how these martyrs helped the Church to grow in North America

These martyrs changed the world by their courage and commitment, and their stories have the power to inspire us today to live our Catholic faith bravely and boldly.
