Father Damien - Booklet

Catholic Truth Society

At age 33, Fr. Damien de Veuster left his mission parish to work among the lepers of the island of Molokai Hawaii. After many years of service to those in dire need, he died there of leprosy at the young age of 49. 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.

Padre Pio - Booklet

Padre Pio - Booklet

Canonized on the 16th June 2002, Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, better known as Padre Pio, had already become one of the saints whose intercession is most called upon, often with amazing effect. Padre Pio received the stigmata, worked many miracles and is said to have often bilocated. Yet as Jim Gallagher beautifully recounts, it was for his holiness as a priest and selfless ministry in the confessional that Padre Pio will ever be remembered among the saints.

During his studies in Germany, Pope Francis encountered a local devotion centered on an image of Our Lady in the Church of St Peter in Augsburg. Many had come to pray with seemingly irresolvable family and marriage problems and had been helped. On his return to Argentina he set about spreading this devotion and its novena.

This booklet gives a brief history of the devotion and the main prayers to “Our Lady Undoer (or Untier) of Knots.”

St Augustine was a bishop, is a father of the Church and a Doctor of the Church, but above all is a man with an extraordinary story to tell. This booklet uses the famous Confessions of St Augustine to recount the wonderful journey from a life of sin and error to a life lived for Christ and his fellow Christians. Augustine’s spiritual insights are as fresh and valuable today as when they were written 1600 years ago.

From her care for the dying in the streets of Calcutta to her defence of the unborn in the West, her life shows the power of true holiness and heroic Christian witness.

 

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.
