Courtship of the Saints
The greatest lovers in the history of the world were the saints, those who sought to love God above everything. For those saints called to marriage, it was God’s love that led them to pursue their spouse in a most pure and holy courtship.Courtship of the Saints reveals how twenty-five saintly couples, including Joachim and Anne, Joseph and Mary, Elizabeth of Hungary and Louis IV, Gianna and Pietro Molla, Louis and Zélie Martin, and others, met their spouses. From the most ordinary to the most extraordinary circumstances, one thing is clear: Divine Providence was at work.
Parents of the Saints
We need saints more than ever in these dark times, especially in the Church. Discover the amazing, hidden heroes behind our favorite saints-the parents of Saints Faustina, Pope John Paul II, Maximillian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Teresa of Calcutta, Thérèse and many more. In these 300 plus pages filled with countless stories, you will read about the seven hallmarks that made these parents virtuous, which they passed onto their children. This book, which took three-years to write, shows firsthand how the saints were formed. Its scheduled release date is early November.
The Shepherd at the Crib and the Cross
Throughout history shepherds have been viewed as a simple and unassuming lot. Rediscover the story of Christmas through the eyes of one shepherd boy, Nissim, who longs to meet the Messiah. Nissim relishes the Prophet Micah’s prophecy that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem and prays that he is ready when the Son of God arrives.
Nursery of Heaven
Cassie Everts & Patrick O’Hearn
Miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss happen more often than we realize, leaving many to suffer in isolation. Nursery of Heaven is a companion to help those grieving from child loss as they search for comfort and meaning. Not only will couples be able to relate to the experiences from saints such as Louis and Zelie Martin, Gianna Molla, and Servant of God Chiara Corbella Petrillo, they will also receive hope and consolation in their sufferings from parents who have suffered a similar loss. Along with such beautiful prayers as Blessing of Parents After a Miscarriage or Stillbirth, the Order for the Naming of an Infant Who Died Before Birth, and various Novenas, this book also provides practical wisdom for our pastors, family and friends to help those who are grieving their child find healing.
