    NEW! AvAilAblE JANUAryThe Fire of Christs LoveMeditations on the Cross

    Fr. raniero Cantalamessa, oFM Cap

    Foreword by Cardinal timothy M. Dolan, archbishop of new York

    Why should we meditate on the cross? Because through the cross of Christ, we can begin to comprehend Gods all-consuming love for us. The short reflections in this book are taken from homilies presented by renowned evan-gelist Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa in St. Peters Basilica on Good Friday over the past thirty years. Fr. Cantalamessa, who has been the preacher of the Papal Household since 1980, unfolds for us the mystery and the power of the cross. By willingly embracing the cross for our sake and then rising from the dead, Jesus has brought us salvation, healing, mercy, and the hope of eternal life. As Fr. Cantalamessa contemplates the intensity and reality of Christs love for us, he also shows us how to respond wholeheartedly with that same fire in our hearts.

    Explores the meaning and consequences of Christs death on the cross.Perfect for Lent but can be used throughout the liturgical year.

    Count on coming away with a new insight, a new way of experiencing the fire of Christs love for youpersonally. From the foreword by Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan

    NeW! AvAilAble JANuAryFaith That Transforms UsReflections on the CreedCardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington

    The truths of our faith are more than wordsthey are living truths that are meant to make a difference in our lives. Every single revelation of God can be life-changing and transforming when we understand it, live it out, and share it with others. This book by Cardinal Donald Wuerl is a positive, uplifting, and joyful presentation of the basic truths of the Catholic faith. With its simple and clear format, it will help Catholics recognize the abundant life awaiting them when they embrace these truths.

    Each chapter examines a section of the Nicene Creed through the series of questions: (1) What is the revelation, and what does it mean? (2) How can this truth transform me? (3) How do I live it? (4) How do I share it with others? Each chapter ends with discussion questions and a Looking for More section with citations to the Scriptures, the Catechism, and relevant Church documents.

    Can be used in groups or individually. A perfect way to celebrate the Year of Faith

    NEW! AvAilAblE APrilLet Us Become Friends of JesusMeditations on Prayerpope Benedict XVi

    Compiled by Jeanne Kun

    The human heart longs to be united with God, and it is only in prayeras we answer Gods invitation to become friends of Jesusthat men and women can satisfy the deepest desires of their hearts. These short meditations are taken from Pope Benedict XVIs audiences, homilies, addresses, and writings from the past seven years of his pontificate, including his most recent catechesis on prayer. Because he is steeped in personal prayer and the liturgical and tradi-tional prayers of the Church, the Holy Father offers us sound and inspiring advice about the essence, art, and practice of prayer. His reflections also pro-vide deep insights into Gods love, Jesus own prayer, how to pray the psalms meaningfully, and the richness of devotions to the Eucharist and Mary. This is a handbook on prayer that youll want to read over and over again.

    Meditations are perfect for use in daily prayer. Suitable for Catholics at any stage in their faith life.
