Escriva, Josem A fresh, authoritative translation of the Little Flower's autobiography from the original French.

St. Francis de Sales is widely regarded as one of the greatest spiritual advisors in the history of the Church, and we have drawn from his letters the wisest advice for those prepared to take the next step on their spiritual journey.

Soon you'll find yourself delivered from the chains of self-love as your soul opens to divine goodness and your heart shaped into a fitting place for Christ to dwell and reign eternally.

Over the years, the brilliant and often voluminous scholarly writings of Bl. John Henry Newman (1801-1890), have drawn into the Church thousands more converts after him.

In this beautifully reproduced collection of his greatest devotions and meditations, we encounter not Newman the intellectual but Newman the simple Christian, on his knees face-to-face with God.

Discerning the voice of God was Newman's greatest desire. It awakened in him ceaseless prayer, countless good works, a profound love of the sacraments, and the habit of daily meditation which strengthened his will, deepened his understanding, and enkindled in him an ever greater love of God.

To help you discern God s voice daily, rest in it, and respond to it according to each day's opportunities and needs, Sophia Institute Press has here gathered fifty of Newman's most moving Christian meditations, each guaranteed to enkindle in your soul the very same kind of love they enkindled in his.

As they nurtured Newman's daily acts of conversion and finally made him worthy of the title Blessed, so will these Everyday Meditations call you to daily acts of conversion and finally lead you, as they led Newman, to bow down in awe before the depths of God s love.

Mornings with Saint Thérèse is a compilation of short excerpts (no more than 1-3 pages) taken from the Little Flower's writings and also from those of her close family members and friends.
Advent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta Witness of Early Christian Women, The Francis of Assisi in His Own Words: The Essential Writings
In celebration of the canonization of one of the Church’s newest saints, Servant Books is proud to present this small book of meditations for the seasons of Advent and Christmas, including special feast days associated with those seasons. By Mike Aquilina

Meet the heroines of Christianity's formative years!

The Witness of Early Christian Women: Mothers of the Church demonstrates the radical nature of Christianity's understanding of women and their roles, especially in a pagan society that viewed them as little more than property. The variety of women here is striking: poor widows, consecrated virgins, heroic martyrs, but also businesswomen, the wealthy, and an indomitable traveler on a world tour.

Each chapter features a concise biography accompanied by writings from the early Church about the woman in question.

The Mothers of the Church include:
Holy Women of the New Testament
St. Blandina
St. Perpetua and St. Felicity
St. Helena
St. Thecla
St. Agnes of Rome
St. Macrina
Proba the Widow
St. Marcella
St. Paula
St. Eustochium
St. Monica
Egeria the Tourist

Explore the impact of each of these women on the Church, then and now. Their stories will enthrall you. Their writings will inspire you. Their witness will empower you.

Biographies of St. Francis will only take you so far. It’s impossible to truly understand him without reading his writings. Sweeney has compiled all of the ones that we are most certain come from Francis himself, including his first Rule of life, the Rule he wrote for the Third Order, letters to friends, letters to people in power, messages to all Franciscans, songs, praises, canticles, and his final spiritual Testament. An introduction and explanatory notes throughout the book help to put the writings into historical and theological context.

Call to Mercy , A : Hearts to Love, Hands to Serve Pier Giorgio Frassati: A Hero for Our Times Works of Love are Works of Peace
Works of Love are Works of Peace
Gloria Deo Price: $19.95
St. Teresa of Calcutta

Published to coincide with Pope Francis's Year of Mercy and the Vatican's canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book of unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith whose influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive, offers Mother Teresa's profound yet accessible wisdom on how we can show mercy and compassion in our day-to-day lives.

For millions of people from all walks of life, Mother Teresa's canonization is providentially taking place during Pope Francis's Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This is entirely fitting since she is seen both inside and outside of the Church as an icon of God's mercy to those in need.

Compiled and edited by Brian Kolodiejckuk, M.C., the postulator of Mother Teresa's cause for sainthood, A Call to Mercy presents deep yet accessible wisdom on how we can show compassion in our everyday lives. In her own words, Mother Teresa discusses such topics
*the need for us to visit the sick and the imprisoned
*the importance of honoring the dead and informing the ignorant
*the necessity to bear our burdens patiently and forgive willingly
*the purpose to feed the poor and pray for all
*the greatness of creating a "civilization of love" through personal service to others

Featuring never before published testimonials by people close to Mother Teresa as well as prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice, A Call to Mercy is not only a lovely keepsake, but a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant and very necessary in the 21st century.
This definitive biography of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati is written by Cristina Siccardi. More than four years in the making and published with the permission and cooperation of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, this large format 224 page book offers the most comprehensive photographic documentation of the apostolic work and prayer life of the Missionaries of Charity yet published.
