"Reading this book was one of the greatest graces of my life!" — St. Thérèse of Lisieux In the late nineteenth century, Father Charles Arminjon, a priest from the mountains of southeastern France, assembled his flock in the town cathedral to preach a series of conferences to help them turn their thoughts away from this life’s mean material affairs—and toward the next life’s glorious spiritual reward. His wise and uncompromising words deepened in them the spirit of recollection that all Christians must have: the abiding conviction that heavenly aims, not temporal enthusiasms, must guide everything we think, say, and do. When Father Arminjon’s conferences were later published in a book, many others were able to reap the same benefit—including fourteen-year-old Thérèse Martin, then on the cusp of entering the Carmelite convent in Lisieux. Reading it, she says, “plunged my soul into a happiness not of this earth.” Young Thérèse, filled with a sense of “what God reserves for those who love him, and seeing that the eternal rewards had no proportion to the light sacrifices of life,” copied out numerous passages and memorized them, “repeating unceasingly the words of love burning in my heart.” Now the very book that so inspired the Little Flower is available for the first time in English. Let the pages of The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life fill you with the same burning words of love, with the same ardent desire to know God above all created things, that St. Thérèse gained from them. Let them also enrich your understanding of certain teachings of the Faith that can often seem so mysterious, even frightening: The signs that will precede the world’s end The coming of the Antichrist, and how to recognize him The Judgment and where it may send us: heaven, hell, and purgatory Biblical end-times prophecy: how to read it and not be deceived Jesus commands us to be ever-watchful for his return, and ever-mindful that we have no lasting city on earth. The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life is an invaluable aid to inculcating in your spirit that heavenly orientation, without which true human happiness cannot be found—in this world or the next. The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life Emphasizes the importance of everlasting eternity, not the time we spend here on earth Explains what will happen at the time of Christ's return Teaches how to bear misfortunes and difficulties with patience 5¾ x 8¾ inches
The man who became Pope Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) shares his thoughts on religion, reason, and the challenges the world faces in the 21st century with Abraham Skorka, a rabbi and biophysicist. The first English-language edition of On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family and the Church in the 21st Century by Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who last week was elected Pope Francis. Pope Francis, is the first Latin American to be elected to the chair of Peter. A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained as a priest in 1969. He served as head of the Society of Jesus in Argentina from 1973 to 1979. In 1998 he became the archbishop of Buenos Aires, and in 2001 a cardinal. Written with Rabbi Abraham Skorka, Rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary in Buenos Aires, Argentina, On Heaven and Earth records seminal discussions from numerous hours of conversations between the two religious leaders, and addresses such topics as God, fundamentalism, atheism, the Holocaust, abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, and globalization. A revisiting of these conversations is particularly relevant at the onset of Pope Francis’ pontificate, as they offer a unique look at his commitment to strengthening interreligious relations through participation in a respectful dialogue on theological and worldly issues. From these talks comes a first-hand view of the man who became leader to 1.2 billion Catholics around the world in March 2013, Pope Francis. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, newly Pope Francis, has not published a book in the United States, so this book serves as his introduction to American audiences. Interfaith dialogue: This conversation between a priest and a rabbi should resonate with a wide readership--not only Catholics, but those interested in exploring ecumenical bridge-building--including fans of such authors as Elaine Pagels and Karen Armstrong. Following the resignation of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, February 28, 2013, the conclave elected Bergoglio, who chose the papal name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. Abraham Skorka is an Argentine rabbi and biophysicist. He is rector of the Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano in Buenos Aires, the rabbi of the Jewish community Benei Tikva, and a professor of biblical and rabbinic literature at the Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano. On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the 21st Century An introduction to Pope Francis's thoughts on religion, reason, and world challenges Easy to read and inspiring An eye-opening book 8.5 x 0.9 inches

It was one of the most disgraceful incidents in University of Michigan football history, and ultimately, one of the most inspiring. This film tells the long-forgotten story of the 1934 game between The University of Michigan and Georgia Tech. When the Yellow Jackets agreed that season to come to Ann Arbor, Michigan for a game, they insisted on one condition - Michigan had to sit out the lone African-American player on the team, a talented end from Detroit named Willis Ward. Many of Wardï¿½s teammates were outraged when athletic officials at The University of Michigan agreed to the demand. The most outraged Wolverine was Wardï¿½s roommate; a lineman from Grand Rapids named Gerald Ford. Ford threatened to quit the team in response to Wardï¿½s benching - and changed his mind only after Ward convinced him that he had to play. The incident also galvanized the Michigan student body and Ann Arbor community, which held loud and vocal protests against the decision to keep Ward out of the game. In the end, the Ward incident helped The University of Michigan turn an important corner in race relations, and made an impact on Gerald Ford that stayed with him all the way to the White House. When Ford passed away in 2006, President George W. Bush referenced the Willis Ward incident in his eulogy. Run Time - 57 Minutes
This classic work from the pen of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen brings together Christ's Sermon on the Mount with his Seven Last Words. From the Mount of the Beatitudes to the Hill of Calvary, Our Lord's public ministry and statements centered on the themes of love and forgiveness, which are explored here with Archbishop Sheen's characteristic insight and passion. Although there is no strict connection between the Seven Beatitudes and the Seven Last Words, The Cross and the Beatitudes shows how the first and last statements of Jesus' public life are intimately related. His entire ministry, with its ultimate fulfillment on Calvary's Cross, perfectly displayed the meekness, mercy, and poverty of His early teaching. From "Blessed are the meek" and "Father, forgive them" to "Into Thy hands I commend my spirit," The Cross and the Beatitudes pleads for a return to the foundational teachings of Jesus that alone can sustain our spirits and lead us to a Christian way of life. The Cross and the Beatitudes: Lessons on Love and Forgiveness From the renowned Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen A profound, inspiring read Perfect for quiet, prayerful reflection

The journey into the Church cannot be traveled alone. It makes no sense -- indeed, it would be a contradiction -- for someone to become part of the church without the help of someone in the community. Although the entire community stands ready to welcome a new member, there is a real need for personal guides. We refer to these companions as sponsors. Companions on the Journey is an invaluable guide for all who have accepted the call to sponsorship and for every RCIA program director.
