Learning the Virtues that Lead You to God : There’s more to goodness than keeping the Commandments: you’ve got to cultivate virtue, too, so that you please God in what you do — not merely in what you don’t do. In these pages, you’ll learn countless ways to grow in such virtue. The wise Msgr. Romano Guardini, a German priest hailed by Pope Benedict XVI as “a great figure” who “aspired to the truth of God and to the truth of man,” leads you from a consideration of virtue in itself to a discussion of each of the key virtues that will make you holy and lead you to God. The Art of Praying: Where did you learn to pray? At your mother's knee? From the nun or brother who taught your religion class? Has your understanding of prayer matured since then, or do you simply pray, year after year, as you were taught as a child? No wonder most people have so many erroneous notions about prayer. No wonder our prayers are still far from what they should be. This remarkable book offers practical ways you can improve your prayers today and grow closer to God. Simple, direct, and profound, The Art of Praying is a helpful guide for the average person in the pew and even for those rare few who are far advanced in prayer. The topics include: how to pray well even when your heart is empty, determining the prayer schedule that's right for you, the posture of prayer, and much more.

In this innovative guide, master art instructor William Maughan demonstrates how to create a realistic human likeness by using the classic and highly accurate modeling technique of chiaroscuro (Italian for light and dark ) developed by Leonardo da Vinci during the High Renaissance. Maughan first introduces readers to the basics of this centuries-old technique, showing how to analyze form, light, and shadow; use dark pencil, white pencil, and toned paper to create a full range of values; use the elements of design to enhance a likeness; and capture a sitter s gestures and proportions. He then demonstrates, step by step, how to draw each facial feature, develop visual awareness, and render the head in color with soft pastels.
