HEALING ROSARY W/ LUMINOUS MYSTERIES

HEALING ROSARY W/ LUMINOUS MYSTERIES
$18.95

Fr Kevin Scallon C.M. had a significant spiritual experience that gave him a deeper insight into how our prayers for past family members are not confined by time or space, as there is no time or space with God. It is therefore possible for us to pray today for the healing of past hurts and wounds in our families and in our own memories. The  "Rosary of Healing", now including the Luminous Mysteries of Healing, is a prayer for the healing of memories and healing of families, especially the members of our own family past and present.

Saint John Paul II said that the Rosary is a powerful prayer for peace, for families, and for contemplating the mysteries of Christ's life. It is also a prayer of healing. Dana, with sung prayers and Fr. Kevin with deeply reflective meditations, pray with the listener for spiritual, physical, and emotional healing.

HELPING TEENS WITH STRESS, ANXIETY & DEPRESSION: A FIELD GUIDE FOR CATHOLIC PARENTS, PASTORS & YOUTH LEADERS

HELPING TEENS WITH STRESS, ANXIETY & DEPRESSION: A FIELD GUIDE FOR CATHOLIC PARENTS, PASTORS & YOUTH LEADERS
$15.95

Do you struggle to know when or if it's appropriate to step in to help a teen who seems stressed, anxious, or depressed? Do you know the signs to look for to determine whether a teen is in distress?

In Helping Teens with Stress, Anxiety, and Depression, Roy Petitfils--a Catholic author, speaker, and psychotherapist--offers his personal experience, advice, and faith to give parents, pastors, and youth leaders the knowledge, courage, and tools they need to step in, make a difference, and be the presence of Christ for teens in crisis.

Roy Petitfils knows what it's like to be an addicted, depressed teenager, filled with self-loathing and desperate for help. He describes himself at high school graduation as by far the largest person in his hometown and yet feeling as though he were "stuck in Harry Potter's invisibility cloak." Weighing more than 500 pounds, he was addicted to food and hated himself.

Now a leading Catholic voice in youth advocacy and creator of the popular podcast Today's Teenager, Petitfils entered adulthood a very different person than he is today. His life was radically changed by a handful of people in college who reached out in friendship and helped him set a new course.

Using personal life lessons and expertise gleaned from more than twenty-five years in youth ministry and private practice as a licensed counselor, Petitfils teaches parents, pastors, and youth leaders what they need to know about mental health issues among America's youth. Whether teens need help coping with healthy levels of stress or face persistent, more serious problems with anxiety and depression, Petitfils will help the adults in their lives get comfortable with stepping in.

Petitfils offers information and advice on:

  • the major causes of stress and anxiety in teens today
  • differentiating healthy stress from toxic stress
  • simple steps to take after identifying a hurting kid, beginning with how to assess whether and how to step in
  • the art of listening
  • He explores the support and comfort available through the sacraments, Catholic devotions, different forms of prayer, and reading the Bible. Ultimately, Petitfils identifies how to gently, yet persuasively guide hurting young people to deeper trust in the tender mercies of God.

    HOPE UPON IMPACT: A MIRACULOUS TRUE STORY OF FAITH, LOVE & GOD'S GOODNESS

    HOPE UPON IMPACT: A MIRACULOUS TRUE STORY OF FAITH, LOVE & GOD'S GOODNESS
    $19.99

    On the lovely spring afternoon of April 20, 2018, a backyard tree cracked, and a heavy limb fell. 12-year-old Evelyn suffered a devastating blow to her head as she shielded her puppy. A significant, compressed skull fracture required emergency neurosurgery. This freak, life-threatening event shook the Overlease family to the core, and an unbelievable experience was instantly set in motion that may take a lifetime to fully understand.

    The astounding details surrounding Evelyn's accident, medical care, and recovery are crazier than fiction. First-time author Julie Overlease tells the story in close detail, with frankness and honesty. This is a book of hope and miracles, in which Evelyn's mother tells a story of faith in action during a time of crisis, of prayer through pain and darkness, of devoted friendship, and the great goodness and love of God.

    HORSES SPEAK OF GOD: HOW HORSES CAN TEACH US TO LISTEN & BE TRANSFORMED

    HORSES SPEAK OF GOD: HOW HORSES CAN TEACH US TO LISTEN & BE TRANSFORMED
    $16.99

    This is what happens when a writer, preacher, and lover of words encounters some of creation's wisest theologians...horses.

    First, she argues with them. They are, after all, horses. What could they possibly know about life and God that theologians haven't already written? But slowly she engages their language and listens to their holy wisdom, attending to how they express their being, their actions, and their relationships. She allows horses to draw her out of the faith of intellect and into a deeper faith of emotion, body, and soul.

    With edgy honesty and humor, Brock invites all who have longed for a deeper spiritual encounter with God to join her in the saddle (and occasionally on the ground) to discover how horses speak of God and how their ways of knowing help us to discover ways of God speaking to us.

    HOW TO LIVE: WHAT THE RULE OF BENEDICT TEACHES US ABOUT HAPPINESS, MEANING, COMMUNITY

    HOW TO LIVE: WHAT THE RULE OF BENEDICT TEACHES US ABOUT HAPPINESS, MEANING, COMMUNITY
    $16.95

    The Rule of St. Benedict arose from an era when a great civilization was threatened by violence, economic forces that favored the wealthy, political leaders that lacked the trust of the public, and rampant xenophobia. Similar to the anxieties and frustrations of the 6th century, we are living in a time where societies need to stress community over competition, consensus over conflict, simplicity over self gain, and silence over the constant chatter and distractions of our lives.

    In How to Live, Judith Valente explores the key elements of the rule and clearly demonstrates how incorporating this ancient wisdom can change the quality and texture of our lives offering a way forward from the divisions gripping our country. These fresh and profound explorations are inspiring and thoughtful, and will motivate readers to live a meaningful life.

    I ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR ME

    I ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR ME
    $12.95
    In his first appearance as newly elected pope, mindful of the challenging tasks ahead of him, Pope Francis humbly asked the crowds who came to rejoice at his election to pray for him. From this request I ask you to pray for me comes the title of this inspirational little book, a collection of homilies, addresses, and audiences given by Pope Francis in the days following his election on March 13 up until Easter Monday, April 1, 2013.

    "And now I would like to give the blessing, but first first I ask a favor of you: before the bishop blesses his people, I ask you to pray to the Lord that he will bless me: the prayer of the people asking the blessing for their bishop. Let us make, in silence, this prayer: your prayer over me."

    The selections range from the first greeting of the Holy Father to addresses to the College of Cardinals, representatives of the communications media, representatives of the churches and ecclesial communities and of the different religions, to the diplomatic corps. And homilies include those given on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and of course Easter Sunday. Following these selections is a brief but informative biography of Pope Francis.

    One comes away from reading these entries with a feeling of being privy to many moving and enduring moments that will forever define Pope Francis papacy. Here is a book that offers a first glimpse into the mind and heart of our new pope, in his own words. It will find a wide readership among committed Catholics, those who may be thinking about a return to the church, and anyone interested in the future direction of the church.

    IN GOD'S HANDS: THE SPIRITUAL DIARIES OF JOHN PAUL II

    IN GOD'S HANDS: THE SPIRITUAL DIARIES OF JOHN PAUL II
    $34.99

    Available for the first time in English, the private reflections of the modern pope recently elevated to sainthood--deeply personal writings that reveal a spiritual leader who agonized over his service to God, continually questioning whether he was doing enough.

    As the head of the Roman Catholic Church for twenty-five years, from the final decades of the twentieth century to the first years of the new millennium, Pope John Paul II significantly impacted our world. As famous as a rock star, this powerful leader who conferred with numerous heads of state was the ultimate model of wisdom and religious commitment for numerous Catholics around the globe.

    Throughout much of his adult life, from 1962 until two years before his death in 2003, John Paul II kept a series of private diaries in which he disclosed his innermost thoughts, impressions, and concerns. Written in his native Polish and never before available in English until now, these journals provide intimate and deeply moving insight into a man, a priest, and a saint's spirituality and a life devoted completely to God.

    In God's Hands lays bare the soul of this powerful, influential statesman, revealing a devout man untouched by his celebrity status; a selfless servant of God who spent decades questioning whether he was worthy of the role he was called to carry out. Over forty years, from his bishopric in Krakow to his election to the papacy to his final years, one question guided him: "Am I serving God?"

    Entrusted to his personal secretary--who defied John Paul II's instructions to burn them after his death--these notebooks provide us with a privileged glimpse into the life of a humble man who never took for granted his mission or his exalted role in the church and in the world.

    INSIDE THE SCHOOL OF CHARITY: LESSONS FROM THE MONASTERY

    INSIDE THE SCHOOL OF CHARITY: LESSONS FROM THE MONASTERY
    $29.95

    In 2003 Trisha Day spent three months living inside the enclosure of Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey, a community of twenty Cistercian nuns. Although she had long been monastic associate, she was startled by the unexpected challenges and insights that emerged as the weeks went by, and began a process of profound reflection on her experience. Now, drawing on her journals and reflections, and on her own experience as a professional woman, wife, daughter, and mother, she delves into the questions of how the centuries-old wisdom of monastic life can challenge, inspire, and guide those living outside the monastery.

    Organized around topics such as prayer, community, and the vows, each of Day's reflections begins with memories of her monastic experience, and then presents a perceptive and often humorous critique of the contrasting values of our present culture. For each topic she chronicles with honesty and humility her subsequent struggles to apply back home the alternative approaches learned from the sisters she lived with, and offers a wealth of practical suggestions. Filled with stories from her own life and fascinating details of daily life in the monastery, her book is sure to strike a spark with all those seeking to live in a fully human and Christ-centered way.

    IT'S A GOD THING: WHEN MIRACLES HAPPEN TO EVERYDAY PEOPLE

    IT'S A GOD THING: WHEN MIRACLES HAPPEN TO EVERYDAY PEOPLE
    $15.99

    Some things in life have no earthly explanation.

    Miracles are not reserved for the characters in the Old and New Testaments; they happen to everyday people.

    Series creators Don Jacobson and K-LOVE Radio have joined together to produce one of the most remarkable collections of modern-day miracles ever compiled. From angel appearances in hospital rooms to a mother saved from a would-be assailant in Hyde Park, from a young autistic girl becoming a beautiful ballerina overnight to a young backpacker who walked away from a terrorist attack, It's a God Thing presents some of the most amazing stories of God's hand on our lives.

    Be motivated as never before to look for and witness the incredible ways that God is interacting in your life and the lives of those around you.

    "With their new book, It's a God Thing, I believe K-LOVE and my friend Don Jacobson will call friends of Jesus everywhere to look for His capers around the world! Do you know why God involves Himself in our lives? Because God is love and love does!" --Bob Goff, author of the New York Times bestseller Love Does

    "Every day we all are faced with stress, situations we can't control and often the fear that we really are all alone. . . . These stories give us courage in times of peril and strengthen us when we feel helpless."--TobyMac, top Christian artist and Grammy Award winner

    "In It's a God Thing true servants of God share how their lives were transformed when their understanding became the Father's. What a blessing to be a child of the King!" --Missy Robertson, star of Duck Dynasty

    "There is so much going on around us that we never see. Life is all about perspective, and when that lines up with the hand of God, it is remarkable to witness. This book and collection of stories from my friends at K-LOVE will inspire and encourage you greatly!" --Andy Andrews, New York Times best-selling author, The Noticer and The Traveler's Gift

    "Sometimes I'm guilty of looking so hard for God that I miss Him right in front of me. May we all be reminded through It's a God Thing that some of the simplest moments in life can quite possibly be some of God's greatest miracles."--Bart Millard, lead singer of MercyMe

    "Nothing astonished people in the New Testament more than watching Jesus perform a miracle right before their eyes--and nothing inspires us today more than hearing He did it again! My good friend Don Jacobson, publisher of The Prayer of Jabez, has once again launched the perfect message for today--don't miss it!"--Bruce Wilkinson, author, The Prayer of Jabez

    "There is nothing better than hearing others talk about the ways that God has intervened in their lives. Miracles happen every day all around the world. These stories are incredible."--Robert D. Smith, author, 20,000 Days and Counting

    "God doesn't need for us to be aware of the miracles He's performing, but they're happening every day! It's a God Thing, a new book from K-LOVE, is a powerful vehicle to tell the story of a number of those miracles."--Brandon Heath, 2008 New Artist of the Year Dove Award winner
