Our weaknesses and our wounds can often make us feel inadequate. But as Sr. Bethany Madonna, S.V. illustrates with her insightful humor and profoundly memorable stories, bringing these weaknesses and wounds to God the Father can allow us to become strong with the Father's strength, and to be healed by the Healer. “The Father Himself loves you... He wants to be with you, at every moment; in every suffering, every pain, every desire and longing.”

Playwright. Poet. Actor. Catholic? Much has been studied and written about William Shakespeare, perhaps the greatest and most famous author in the English language. With compelling detail and wit, Joseph Pearce outlines the objective, documented, and historical evidence that both Shakespeare and his family were practicing Roman Catholics, who persevered in professing and promoting the faith even in the midst of great persecution. The evidence is staggering, and illumines a remarkable cultural opportunity for evangelization in a "post-Christian" world.
Pope John Paul II's papacy is marked by the ways he engaged with and was loved by the youth. Scores of young people were drawn to him from around the world by a magnetism that continues even today, in his sainthood. In his letter to the youth of the world, John Paul offers young people his encouragement to respond to Jesus' call to follow Him during this unique and critically important time of life. To them he writes: “In you there is hope, for you belong to the future, just as the future belongs to you.”
Fr. Thomas Dubay, a renowned spiritual director and author, presents a profound and practical book on the most important of all human activities, communion with God. In this four-part work, Fr. Dubay addresses the questions of many lay people and provides answers on how to pray while still living in the world. He addresses essential questions on why we ought to pray, how we ought to pray, different types of prayer within the Church, and liturgical and family prayers with clarity and insight. The last section of the book addresses common questions from his experience as a spiritual director about types of prayer encountered outside of the Church, and how to use solid discernment with the guidance of the Church when encountering these things. Using foundation stones from the Bible, the Catechism, and the writings of the saints, Fr. Dubay builds a work to help beginners in prayer and encourage them on their ascent to God.
The vast majority of human beings believe in a higher power, but few can clearly and articulately explain what they believe in or why. When it comes to explaining one's beliefs, most rely on intuition or personal experience, relegating faith to the realm of subjective judgment as opposed to objective truth. In Going Deeper: A Reasoned Exploration of God and Truth, Leo Severino presents a systematic, easy-to-understand, journey that grounds the certitude of faith in logic and reason. The author maps out a train of thought that begins with everyday events, reasons its way through proofs of the existence of God, then goes on to describe the deep purpose inscribed in every human heart. For those not well versed in theology or philosophy, this book is an accessible way to tether matters of faith to demonstrable premises and logical conclusions. For those with deeper theological formation, this book will provide fresh perspectives on the classic arguments that demonstrate how faith and reason go hand in hand.
Leo Severino earned degrees, with honors, in Philosophy and Law from the University of Southern California. He worked as a young lawyer in the world of corporate transactions before transitioning to filmmaking, working at 20th Century Fox before co-founding Metanoia Films. Leo has written and produced several feature films including Bella and Little Boy. This book is the fruit of years of theological studies and teaching classes on the Christian faith.

This book is a rare gem: a pity, engaging, and creative book on logic and basic philosophy that is never dull, pedantic, or even predictable. Severino's gifts as a thinker and communicator are as impressive as they are unassuming.
–Carl Olson, Editor, Catholic World Report; Author, Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead?
With atheism and agnosticism on the rise, and in the face of changing cultural attitudes, Going Deeper is a breath of fresh air and a shot in the arm.
–Steve Ray, Author, Crossing the Tiber; Host, The Footprints of God film seriesGoing Deeper walks you through questions that every person has asked from the beginning of time.
–Terry Barber, Author, How to Share Your Faith with Anyone
Many people think faith and reason are at odds. Leo Severino's careful reasoning shows why that idea is mistaken. God's existence and human purpose are knowable, starting from deep reflection on something as simple as a leaf.
