The Tears of Christ

The Tears of Christ

“Jesus wept, not merely from the deep thoughts of his understanding but from spontaneous tenderness, from the goodness and mercy, the encompassing loving-kindness and exuberant affection of the Son of God for his own work, the race of man.”


This precious insight takes us to the heart of the interior life of St. John Henry Newman (1801–1890), from the treasures of which these meditations are offered as a devotional aid for the season of Lent. Drawn chiefly from his sermons and gently modernized, these meditations offer a share in the fruit of his contemplation, that we might the better enjoy with him the “one thing which is all in all to us,” which is “to live in Christ’s presence, to hear his voice, to see his countenance.”

Spanish - Santa Filomena: Poderosa intercesora ante Dios

Español:
Aunque Santa Filomena vivió hace aproximadamente 1,700 años y apenas fue descubierta en las catacumbas de Roma a principios del siglo XIX, su fiel testimonio como joven virgen que fue martirizada por su pureza y su fidelidad a Cristo habla poderosamente a nuestra cultura, y especialmente a los jóvenes. Conocida comúnmente como una "trabajadora de maravillas", ella tiene la distinción de ser la única santa canonizada solamente sobre la base de los milagros profundos atribuidos a su intercesión. Santa Filomena es una poderosa defensora e intercesora que tenemos ante el trono de Dios Todopoderoso.


English:
Though St. Philomena lived approximately 1700 years ago and was only discovered in the catacombs of Rome in the early 1800's, her faithful witness as a young virgin who was martyred for her purity and for her fidelity to Christ speaks powerfully to our culture, and especially to young people. Commonly referred to as a "wonder worker", she has the distinction of being the only saint canonized solely on the basis of the profound miracles attributed to her intercession. Learn more about St. Philomena and what a powerful advocate we have before the throne of Almighty God.

 

En mi adolescencia, usaba el cordón de Santa Filomena para la pureza. Ahora puedo decir lo poderoso que fue, porque nunca tuve un problema con los encuentros sexuales y llegué a mi matrimonio siendo virgen. Ahora como abuela, renovaré mi devoción a ella para el bien de mis hijos y mis nietos. Joan - Vancouver

Praise for I Thirst: 40 Days with Mother Teresa

Fr. Langford was confessor and retreat master for Mother Teresa’s religious sisters, as well as her confidante, in a privileged position to know the secrets Jesus had confided to her. Thus to have in this book, I Thirst, Fr. Langford’s retreat notes on Mother’s understanding of Jesus’ cry from the cross, is to have a priceless treasure. The untold riches of Mother Teresa’s heart – which are nothing but the untold riches of Christ’s own Heart – are here before us in these pages.

–Suzie Andres, author of Homeschooling with Gentleness, A Little Way of Homeschooling (Christendom Press, 2004)


If you thirst for the living water of God, follow the wisdom of Mother Teresa and she will surely lead you to the source.

–Dan Burke, President of EWTN News and the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation


Father Langford’s reflections take us into the heart of Mother Teresa’s spirituality. Based on his close relationship with Mother and his own contemplation and teaching on this theme, these meditations help us encounter God more in our thirst for Him and His thirst for us.

–Dr. Edward Sri, Vice President for Formation, Fellowship of Catholic University Students


Ironically, in a world supposedly overflowing with self-esteem, many, many people cannot believe that "God thirsts" for them. This little book makes a convincing scriptural case that it is true! And moves us to love God, ourselves, and others better because of it. It is a perfect gem of spiritual reading .

–Helen M. Alvaré, Professor of Law, The Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University


In 2008, I traveled to Ethiopia for Catholic Relief Services and visited the large, bustling orphanage of the Missionaries of Charity, which served thousands of people of all ages each day. When I asked about the source of the sisters’ energy for all of this good work, I was led into a primitive chapel with a tabernacle and the words “I thirst,” over the Blessed Sacrament. The book, I Thirst: 40 Days with Mother Teresa, written by a priest who worked with Mother Teresa, provides 40 day portions of the rich spirituality of Saint Teresa of Calcutta. I Thirst communicates well Jesus’ desire or thirst to love us deeply and our inner thirst for His presence in our lives. I strongly encourage its use during Lent or any other time of the year.

–Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D., Archbishop of Louisville

Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko: Truth Versus Totalitarianism

Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko: Truth Versus Totalitarianism

"Listen, Father Jerzy, today is September 14, your birthday. So if you are supposed to do something, this is the day!" So prayed Father Bernard Brien beside the bed of a dying man. As soon as the priest left the hospital room, the comatose patient opened his eyes and asked his wife what had happened. A few days later his medical team, after many tests, observed that his widespread cancer had completely disappeared. The doctors were astounded.

The miracle moved Father Brien to write this book about Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko, to make the twentieth-century martyr better known. He presents an intimate portrait of the courageous Polish priest who changed his life and that of countless others.

As the young and ardent chaplain of the Solidarity labor union, Father Popieluszko embodied the Polish people's resistance to Communism, and for this he was murdered in 1984, at the age of thirty-seven, by the Communist regime's security forces. Soon afterward Father Popieluszko was hailed as a martyr and a national hero, and his example inspired the Polish people to persevere in their struggle for political and religious freedom.

Father Popieluszko's witness of spiritual resistance, deeply rooted in the life of Christ, retains its relevance and urgency in the twenty-first century. The young Polish priest who stood up to Communist totalitarianism at the cost of his life will embolden those who resist tyranny and defend human dignity.

About the Author

Fr. Bernard Brien is a parish priest and hospital chaplain in the diocese of Créteil, France.


Praise for Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko: Truth Versus Totalitarianism

"Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko is the late-twentieth-century's heroic exemplar of a priest accompanying his people in their deepest struggles, ennobling them with his presence and his evangelically charged message, and pouring out his life for the truths he preached. His priestly witness will inspire many in the twenty-first century to give themselves without reservation to the truth of the Gospel and its liberating power."
— George Weigel, Biographer of Pope Saint John Paul II

"Father Jerzy Popieluszko was a patriot, a prophet, and a heroic martyr for the Gospel. I have relied on his intercession for decades. His story will inspire any Catholic to be a confident and courageous witness to the truth about our humanity, our freedom, and our Lord, Jesus Christ."
— Most Reverend James Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska

Rethinking Mary in the New Testament

Rethinking Mary in the New Testament

Scholars often have questioned how much the New Testament can tell us about the Mother of Jesus. After all, Mary appears only in a few accounts and speaks on limited occasions. Can Scripture really support the many Marian beliefs developed in the Church over time?

In Rethinking Mary in the New Testament, Dr. Edward Sri shows that the Bible reveals more about Mary than is commonly appreciated. For when the Mother of Jesus does appear in Scripture, it’s often in passages of great importance, steeped in the Jewish Scriptures, and packed with theological significance.


This comprehensive work examines every key New Testament reference to Mary, addressing common questions along the way, such as: 

– What was Mary’s life like before the Annunciation? 
– Is there biblical support for Mary’s Immaculate Conception and Perpetual Virginity? 
– Does Scripture reveal Mary as our spiritual mother? 
– What does it mean for Mary to be “full of grace”? 
– How is Mary the “New Eve,” “Ark of the Covenant,” and “Queen Mother”?
– Can Mary be identified with the “woman” in Revelation 12? 
– Rethinking Mary in the New Testament offers a fresh, in-depth look at the Mother of Jesus in Scripture—one that helps us know Mary better and her role in God’s plan. 

JUST ONE WORD CAN TELL US A LOT ABOUT MARY 

How can just the words “hail,” “full of grace,” or “woman” reveal so much about the Mother of Jesus? This in-depth, fresh look at Mary in the Bible explores every key New Testament reference to Mary. Drawing on recent insights in biblical scholarship and traditional wisdom sometimes overlooked, Dr. Edward Sri devotes entire chapters to analyzing the small scriptural details to help us know better who Mary really is and the role she plays in God’s plan of salvation.

About the Author

Edward Sri, Ph.D., is a well-known author and speaker. He is a founding leader of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students), currently serves as FOCUS vice president of formation, and holds a doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. Each year he speaks to clergy, parish leaders, catechists, and laity from around the world.

Praise for Rethinking Mary


This is Sri's best book so far—and that means it is an extraordinary book indeed.  A book like this could only be authored by someone with a mastery of contemporary biblical scholarship who also happens to be a lifelong scholar of Mariology. This rare conjunction describes Edward Sri.  Easy to read, serious, and scholarly, this book delivers on its promises.  Here we meet the Mary whom the evangelists aimed to reveal to us.
Dr. Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary


In this work, Sri brings his remarkable knowledge of Mary in Scripture to bear on one of the most pressing needs in the Church today: an up-to-date and thoroughly exegetical analysis of every key New Testament passage regarding Mary. This book is a major achievement, and a must-read for anyone interested in what the Bible really teaches about the Mother of Jesus.

“There is an urgent need for a ‘Do-It-At-Home’ Ignatian retreat. That need is beautifully met by Fr. Ravier. This book makes it possible for millions of Catholics to enter into the ‘interior castle’ of Christian mysticism. Those who thirst for a drink of holiness and mystical experience can now find it in this Ignatian retreat manual.”

–Fr. Kenneth Baker, SJ, Editor, Homiletic and Pastoral Review

“Fr. Ravier’s book will be most helpful for anyone who wants to attempt the richness of a retreat with the Spiritual Exercises by following his guidance. It will also be of great use to retreat masters themselves.”

–Fr. James Schall, SJ, Georgetown University

Remembering Our Story: Evangelization in America During the 19th Century

Remembering Our Story: Evangelization in America During the 19th Century

Catholicism in the United States has a challenging but rich history that is rarely told. Emily Stimpson Chapman, an experienced journalist and the author of numerous books, tells of the triumphs and obstacles that Catholics faced in the 1800s when evangelizing. Emily’s telling of the immense struggles that bishops, religious, and lay people endured to spread the Gospel in the nineteenth century offers us relatable role models and inspiration as we face challenges in our own day.

 

It was very educational and inspiring to hear the stories of the saints of our history. The speaker was both lively yet informative shedding light on the struggles of being Catholic and defending our faith. The talk was not boring or depressing but rather quite inspirational. Beth - Denver, CO

Praise for True Reformers

“In every age one encounters a cloud of witnesses whose lives articulate its deepest longings. This penetrating analysis—marked by spiritual, historical, and cultural insight—introduces the vibrant personalities who so clearly understood the larger implications hidden beneath the surface in the era of the European Reformations.”

– Don J. Briel, Bl. John Henry Newman Chair, University of Mary

“These stunning portraits of ten very great saints show the beauty of God’s grace shining through the lives of his closest friends. The path marked out by the True Reformers of the sixteenth century is the path we still need to walk in the twenty?first: the steep and narrow path of holiness.”

– Christopher O. Blum, Ph.D., Academic Dean and Professor of History and Philosophy, Augustine Institute

“To read these accounts is a kind of retreat. It provides an opportunity to reflect on our love of God, our prayer life, and the mission God has given each of us in light of our spiritual teachers.”

– Jonathan J. Reyes, Executive Director, of the Departement of Justice, Peace, and Human Development of the USCCB

Praise for The Trials of Saint Patrick

“The Trials of St. Patrick brings to life the heroic and holy witness of Ireland’s most beloved saint. I highly recommend this captivating audio series as an inspiration for all listeners!”
– Most Rev. Samuel J. Aquila, Archbishop, Archdiocese of Denver

“For those who are hungry to learn more about the amazing life of St. Patrick of Ireland and how God’s powerful grace worked through him to convert the obstinate pagans of his time, The Trials of St. Patrick will be sure to please and edify you. This dramatic portrayal shines a new light onto the life of a beloved saint, a life that has lingered in the shadows of mystery and legend for too long.”
– Rev. Francis J. Hoffman, Executive Director of Relevant Radio

“Dramatic, compelling, and sweeping, The Trials of Saint Patrick captures the power of the life and legacy of a saint whose real story is greatly beloved, but little known. With tremendous production values and talented voicing, this dramatization draws the listener into the life of a man who—though far from perfect—overcame adversity to find a true relationship with God and then gave the rest of his life to gift others with that same assurance of God’s unconditional love. Whether you’re a St. Patrick follower or simply someone in search of your own personal path to the divine, treat yourself to an exquisite adventure into the life of a saint whose legacy is even more relevant in today's world.”
– Lisa M. Hendey, author of The Secret of the Shamrock and founder of CatholicMom.com

“The Trials of Saint Patrick is radio theatre at its very best, taking us on a voyage into the Gaelic mists of the mystic west into the presence of one of the most enigmatic of all saints.”
– Joseph Pearce, Director of the Center for Faith and Culture, Aquinas College

 

This audio drama is outstanding! The acting is exceptional. We especially enjoyed the music, which added so much to the “feel” of the story. My wife and I listened to the program as we drove to work. Fortunately, the segments are perfectly timed for our ride—about 20–25 minutes. My wife took the pack to work with her to show a Catholic co-worker. A non-Catholic co-worker saw the package, and expressed interest. So now she has the discs and is enjoying them. St. Patrick’s evangelizing continues! Greg - Gainesville, FL

Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc

Very few people know that Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) wrote a major work on Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important but also his best work. He spent twelve years in research and many months in France doing archival work and then made several attempts until he felt he finally had the story he wanted to tell. He reached his conclusion about Joan’s unique place in history only after studying in detail accounts written on both sides, the French and the English. A remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc told by one of this country’s greatest storytellers.

Like Christ himself, he became rejected for the rejected, a leper for the lepers: something rare in a world that wants to eliminate suffering. The author has updated and revised the text in light of Damien’s canonization by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in 2009.

Pier Giorgio Frassati - Booklet

Pier Giorgio Frassati - Booklet

A young Catholic who spent his short life caring for the sick and infirm. A handsome and active young man from an influential family in Turin who dedicated his short life to the care of the poor and the sick and working for social and political reforms. Pier Giorgio Frassati’s generosity was legendary. He often gave the clothes he was wearing to poor people he met who were in need. An open anti-fascist, a keen sportsman and mountaineer, an enthusiast of the theatre and literature, and a young man with a great devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, he stands as a great example of Christianity in action. His life was cut short by polio at the age of 24 and thousands of the Italian industrial city’s poor lined the streets at his funeral. He was beatified in 1990 by Blessed Pope John Paul II.

St. Philomena - A Saint For Our Times

St. Philomena - A Saint For Our Times

Though St. Philomena lived approximately 1700 years ago and was only discovered in the catacombs of Rome in the early 1800's, her faithful witness as a young virgin who was martyred for her purity and for her fidelity to Christ speaks powerfully to our culture, and especially to young people. Commonly referred to as a "wonder worker", she has the distinction of being the only saint canonized solely on the basis of the profound miracles attributed to her intercession. Learn more about St. Philomena and what a powerful advocate we have before the throne of Almighty God.

 

St. Philomena was unknown to me until about 1-2 years ago when I was looking through my grandparents book shelves. I have wanted to know so much about her and she is now my little saint also. My mom gave me this cd to me this year for Easter, and I really love it! Allison - College Station, TX
