  • By Lorraine V. Murray Published by Saint Benedict Press 2009, Softcover, 233 pages Flannery O'Connor has been studied and lauded under many labels: the Southern author whose pen captured the soul of a proud region struggling to emerge out of racism and poverty, the female writer whose independent spirit and tragically short life inspired a generation of women, the Catholic artist whose fiction evokes themes of sin and damnation, mercy and redemption. Now, and for the first time, The Abbess of Andalusia affords us an in-depth look at Flannery O'Connor the believer. In these pages you will come to know Flannery O'Connor not only as a writer and an icon, but as a theologian and apologist; as a spiritual director and a student of prayer; as a suffering soul who learned obedience and merited grace through infirmity; and truly, as the Abbess of her own small, but significant, spiritual house. For decades Flannery O'Connor the author has touched her readers with the brilliance of her books. Now be edified and inspired by the example of her life.

  • By Fr. René Laurentin Publisher: Pauline Books & Media 2006, Softcover On the evening of July 18, 1830, an extraordinary event occurred in the life of a young novice. Waking shortly before midnight at the insistent summons of an angel, Catherine Labouré hastened to make an appointment requested of her by the Virgin Mary. Over the next several months, this privileged young woman would understand that she was to be the carrier of a message greater than herself, a message that must remain a secret between her and heaven... René Laurentin, author of the best-selling Bernadette Speaks, recounts the life of Catherine Labouré in this meticulously researched biography. Catherine Labouré: Visionary of the Miraculous Medal presents the fascinating and inspiring story of the French Sister of Charity who became the focus of much popular religious devotion, extending to our own time. St. Catherine Labouré's story of humility, courage, and holiness is unforgettable. Her quiet life of service is a powerful witness of how God can enter our lives and dwell intimately within our hearts. Sixteen pages of black-and-white photos are included. (From the back cover)
  • By Bishop Fulton J. Sheen Published by Angelico Press 2015, Softcover, 71 pages To give us a better understanding of the Catholic faith, in Characters of the Passion Fulton J. Sheen returns us to Calvary. There he dramatically brings to life in brief but penetrating characterizations many who played important roles in the “Eternal Drama of the Cross.” Peter, Judas, Pilate, Herod, Barabbas, and others make an appearance, and through them the author shows us new aspects of the glory of the Faith. Fulton Sheen was unparalleled in his ability to combine theology, devotion, and the profoundest meditations on the central events of the Christian narrative. His writing is a message of inspiration to all: to those wavering in their beliefs he brings comfort and strength; to others he affirms the knowledge that true faith is the most powerful weapon in the world today, ever-ready to meet the challenges of modern life.

Pine-Coffin 1979, Softcover Saint Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354-430) was one of the outstanding figures of the declining Roman Empire.
