ALL FOR HER: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF FATHER PATRICK PEYTON, C.S.C.

ALL FOR HER: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF FATHER PATRICK PEYTON, C.S.C.
$20.00

On December 18, 2017, Pope Francis declared that Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., lived a life of heroic virtue and gave him the title "venerable," marking another step closer to sainthood for the "Rosary Priest." This new edition of Peyton's biography tells the story of his life and dedication to the Blessed Mother as he discerned his vocation, overcame the obstacles of advanced tuberculosis and lack of education, and became a priest who eventually preached to more than 28 million people worldwide, worked with Hollywood stars, and founded Family Rosary and Family Theater Productions.

This new edition of Peyton's autobiography--originally published in 1967 and reissued in a revised edition in 1997--includes black-and-white photos and a new foreword by Holy Cross Family Ministries president Fr. Willy Raymond, C.S.C., reflecting on Peyton's legacy as a saint for family prayer and his cause for canonization.

Meet one of the newest candidates for sainthood: a priest who was formed by his own family's Rosary devotion--and his formation as a Holy Cross priest--to promote peace and unity across the globe through family prayer.

Peyton--probably best known for the inspirational phrases "the family that prays together stays together" and "a world at prayer is a world at peace"--encouraged family prayer and devotion to the Rosary throughout his ministry. In his autobiography, the Rosary Priest reflects on his journey from a farm boy in Western Ireland to one of the most effective missionaries of the modern age.

In All for Her Peyton describes his travels to America, hoping to become a millionaire and instead finding work as a janitor in the Scranton cathedral, where he realized the call to the priesthood. In 1929, Peyton entered the seminary, but after years of study and training he was diagnosed with advanced tuberculosis. Conventional treatments at the time were not working. He prayed to the Virgin Mary and his health quickly began to improve. In gratitude he committed his vocation to promote devotion to the Blessed Mother and the Rosary. On the day of his ordination as a priest in the Congregation of Holy Cross, Peyton said, "I gave my heart and soul in love to Mary. I promised her all the merit of my priesthood until death. The merit and glory of every action I would ever perform would be hers and hers alone."

Peyton immediately began advocating for the practice of family Rosary devotion. He embraced the new media as a means to reach people across the globe, and developed radio and television programs that spread a message of prayer and family unity. He founded Family Theater Productions in 1947. Performers in his productions included such stars of Hollywood's golden age as Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck, and Lucille Ball.

Peyton also preached to millions in person, organizing two hundred-sixty Rosary Crusades across the globe. These large rallies included worship, prayer, and benediction. Peyton continued to be active until the 1990s and died in 1992. In 1997, the cause for his canonization was opened.

All for Her is part of Ave Maria Press's Holy Cross series. These books explore and celebrate the history and spiritual vision of the Congregation of Holy Cross, a religious order of priests, brothers, and sisters founded in France in 1837 by Blessed Basil Moreau, C.S.C., who was beatified in 2007. Included in the series are works of biography, spirituality, and devotion.

ALWAYS FORWARD

ALWAYS FORWARD
$39.99

Always Forward continues the account of the first Benedictine monastery in the United States, Saint Vincent Archabbey, taking up the story from Mission to America: A History of Saint Vincent Archabbey, The First Benedictine Monastery in the United States. Jerome Oetgen follows up the conclusion of Mission to America, which ended with the disastrous fire of January 28, 1963, adding in new material from the abbacy of Denis Strittmatter (1949-1963), and tracing the story of the Saint Vincent monastery, parish, seminary, college, prep school, and scholasticate in Latrobe through archabbots Rembert Weakland (1963-1967), Egbert Donovan (1967-1979), Leopold Krul (1979-1983), Paul Maher (1983-1990) and Douglas Nowicki (1991-2020). Always Forward is not just the story of Benedictine monks in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. From the days of Saint Vincent founder Archabbot Boniface Wimmer, O.S.B., whose work brought Benedictine monasticism to America, his successors developed and continued missionary work in North America, such as Benedictine Military School in Savannah, Georgia; in South America, where Benedictines serve at São Bento Monastery in Vinhedo, Brazil; and in Asia, where they serve at Wimmer Priory in Taipei, Taiwan.

AN OVERVIEW OF GREGORIAN CHANT

volume, Dom Cardine sums up the origin, decline, and restoration of the
chant, and challenges researchers to continue his work.

AND SO WE PRAY 2: SUPPORTING YOUNG ADULTS THROUGH THE COLLEGE YEARS

AND SO WE PRAY 2: SUPPORTING YOUNG ADULTS THROUGH THE COLLEGE YEARS
$10.99
YES! More of the same encouragement to get to know the Lord you'll find in the first book. More of the same amazing real-life stories told  by women who generously wanted to help you. More of the same sound Scripture-based advice for shepherding young adults through the college years. In this edition, author Maribeth Harper addresses many more "hot-button" topics college-aged young adults face and helps parents to navigate those challenging circumstances with truths from the Catholic faith.

From Maribeth ~~
"Both of my books are full of personal stories shared with me by generous Christian women who struggled in one way or another with their child's college years. For each situation they described, I turned to Scripture and the teaching of the Catholic Church to offer moms with lots of practical, relevant help. 

Each chapter includes personal stories, an application of Church teaching, a prayer, and follow up Scriptures on the theme for further recollection or journaling. The books are ideal for small groups of Praying College Moms but I have also heard from moms who have just picked it up, and read it slowly and prayerfully! (And some read it in one sitting, too).

AROUND THE MONASTIC TABLE: GROWING IN MUTUAL SERVICE & LOVE

AROUND THE MONASTIC TABLE: GROWING IN MUTUAL SERVICE & LOVE
$29.95

It is said that the heart of the home is the kitchen tale, and the same is true of the monastic home. Saint Benedict devoted ten chapters to the monastic tale and to providing and serving food as well as necessities; inserted in the middle are chapters on the sick, the aged, and children. That arrangement makes it clear that the tale is about care, not just discipline. Sister Aquinata Backmann offers a thorough study of these core chapters in Benedict's Rule. Drawing on scholarship and personal experience of the monastic tale, she demonstrates in this commentary the relationship between Benedict's Rule and other rules, including those of Basil, Augustine, and the Rule of the Master. More than discipline, what comes through here is the focus on care for weaker members, practicality about work schedules and demands, and the overall desire to meet the needs of the brothers and sisters sharing life together.

Aquinata Backmann, OSB, PhD, is a member of the Benedictine Missionary Sisters of Tutzing, Germany. She has taught in Rome since 1973 at the Pontifical Institute for Spirituality and Moral Theology Regina Mundi and as the first woman professor at Sant' Anselmo. She is the author of Perspectives on the Rule of Saint Benedict, also published by Liturgical Press.

ART OF WINNING SOULS

ART OF WINNING SOULS
$19.95
In his chapter on the procedure for the reception of new brothers, Saint Benedict makes provision for entrusting them to the care of “a senior who is skilled in winning souls who will diligently pay attention to them in everything” (58.6). In The Art of Winning Souls: Pastoral Care of Novices, Michael Casey, OCSO, reflects on what this means today, based on his own experience and observation of the fruitful ministry of others. Here Casey focuses on the pastoral care given in the name of a monastic community to those who enter it, from initial contact up to the point where their vocation has recognizably stabilized. His reflections are not intended to be prescriptive. They are, rather, descriptive of what he considers to be best practice, as he has encountered this in his experience of many different expressions of the monastic and Benedictine charism. This book promises to serve as an indispensible resource for vocation directors, novice directors, and junior directors for years to come.

ARTS & THE CHRISTIAN IMAGINATION: ESSAYS ON ART, LITERATURE & AESTHETICS

ARTS & THE CHRISTIAN IMAGINATION: ESSAYS ON ART, LITERATURE & AESTHETICS
$28.99
Dr. Clyde Kilby was known to many as an early, long and effective champion of C. S. Lewis, and the founder of the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, IL, for the study of the works of Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and other members of the Inklings. Less known is that Dr. Kilby was also an apologist in his time for arts, aesthetics and beauty, particularly among Evangelicals.

This collection offers a sampler of the work of Dr. Clyde Kilby on these themes. He writes reflections under four headings: "Christianity, Art, and Aesthetics"; "The Vocation of the Artist"; "Faith and the Role of the Imagination"; and "Poetry, Literature and the Imagination."

With a unique voice, Kilby writes from a specific literary and philosophical context that relates art and aesthetics with beauty, and all that is embodied in the classics. His work is particularly relevant today as these topics are being embraced by Protestants, Evangelicals, and indeed people of faith from many different traditions. A deeply engaging book for readers who want to look more closely at themes of art, aesthetics, beauty and literature in the context of faith.

BE NOT TROUBLED: A 6-DAY PERSONAL RETREAT WITH FR. JEAN-PIERRE DE CAUSSADE (BASED ON THE SPIRITUAL CLASSIC ABANDONMENT TO DIVINE PR)

BE NOT TROUBLED: A 6-DAY PERSONAL RETREAT WITH FR. JEAN-PIERRE DE CAUSSADE (BASED ON THE SPIRITUAL CLASSIC ABANDONMENT TO DIVINE PR)
$12.95

For more than 250 years, Abandonment to Divine Providence by Fr. Jean-Pierre de Caussade has offered inspiration and spiritual balm for those plagued with doubt, anxiety, and fear. Motivated by his own life-changing encounter with this spiritual classic and the popular resurgence in practicing Christian mindfulness, bestselling author and retreat leader Rev. Jeffrey Kirby serves up six meditations, rooted in Caussade's work, for today's reader and presents them as a personal retreat. Perfect for anyone looking to renew their trust in God and live freely in the present moment, Be Not Troubled invites you to let go of what you can't control and discover a place of deep serenity in God.

How does the contemporary person who is constantly forced to multitask, is fragmented and torn in different directions, and feels more connection through technology than through face-to-face interaction come to know and experience God's presence?

In Be Not Troubled, Kirby draws on his decades of experience as a popular retreat leader and speaker to offer you the wisdom of Caussade distilled into a six-day personal retreat that equips you to embrace the present moment and shake fear from your mind--all by recognizing the power of God.

This process begins with time-tested tools drawn from the renowned spiritual classic Abandonment to Divine Providence, which presents a series of influential spiritual reflections from Caussade, a beloved eighteenth-century French Jesuit.

In popularizing this classic for today's readers, Be Not Troubled

  • rejects a spirituality of fear and shame by introducing you to God as a loving provider who knows you and wills your happiness;
  • guides you in personally surrendering your will to God--an essential step in developing deep faith;
  • helps you see God in the details as you recognize ordinary moments as opportunities to experience God and his love for you; and
  • instructs you in embracing the sacrament of the present moment, dispelling doubt and anxiety from your life.
  • Practical steps, invitations to practice presence, and reflective prayers guide you through these spiritual habits, which are broken out into six days of brief, accessible meditations that can be completed in the midst of your daily life.

    Rather than the future or the past, and rather than in cyberspace or somewhere else, God is found in this moment and in this place. The present moment can be lived and cherished as a sacrament, a visible sign of invisible graces. And it's in this sacrament that we can most know ourselves and encounter the living God.

    BECOMING WOMEN OF THE WORD: HOW TO ANSWER GOD'S CALL WITH PURPOSE & JOY

    BECOMING WOMEN OF THE WORD: HOW TO ANSWER GOD'S CALL WITH PURPOSE & JOY
    $15.95

    The women God called to bring his chosen people into the world were ordinary women who struggled with emptiness, oppression, infertility, and loss--yet who found strength and hope in God. In her first book, Sarah Christmyer--codeveloper of The Great Adventure Catholic Bible study program--pairs the stories of key Old Testament women with stories of women she has known to show us how we can hear God, say yes to his call, and share him with the world just as they did.

    Breaking open the scriptures to reveal the historical, cultural, and biblical context in which Old Testament women lived, Sarah Christmyer breathes new life into their stories and makes their lives surprisingly relatable. In the process, she shares stories from her own faith journey and the lives of family and friends to show how the same principles that turned ordinary women into heroines of the faith are true for our lives today.

    Each chapter of Becoming Women of the Word highlights the spiritual legacy of one or more women in the Old Testament. Their world was vastly different from ours, yet they faced the same questions we do: when we can't feel God's presence, where do we find help? When our world is collapsing, where is God? Why should we trust him? How can we trust him? Christmyer simply and clearly draws from the lives of these women important principles that help us to trust--even as we struggle with doubt. For example:

  • Through Eve, we learn to hold on to God's promise even when we fail.
  • Sarah reminds us to wait on God's timing to make us fruitful.
  • Miriam, the sister of Moses, shows how to lead by example.
  • Ruth and Esther challenge us to see womanhood as a gift.
  • Hannah and Judith inspire us to trust God even in matters of life and death.
  • These unforgettable portraits create a colorful mosaic of faith, encouraging us to mine God's Word for spiritual treasure and to pass on the gift.

    BENEDICT BACKWARDS: READING THE RULE IN THE 21ST CENTURY

    BENEDICT BACKWARDS: READING THE RULE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
    $17.95

    In Benedict Backwards, Terrence Kardong builds the case that the Rule of Benedict is best read "backwards," that is, with emphasis on the last chapters, not the first ones. Benedict starts out dependent on the Rule of the Master, but he ends on a much more self-assured note, revealing more about his own thoughts on matters of monastic life. Kardong shows the final chapters of the Rule are primarily about community, and they provide insight into Benedict's vision for his monks.
