  • The Church's most powerful novenas together in a single book, here to team up with you to ask God for that special favour you want.
  • This unusual and hard to find book, first published in1864, starts with hourly events that occurred during our Lord's Passion, with a short Aspiration for each hour. The main part of the book then explains the Passion of Our Lord, giving biblical references. Also included are some most unusual prayers - not just the well known Stations of the Cross by St. Alphonsus, but also the "Stations of the Passion", tp which are added "Stations for Holy Thursday" and "The Little Crown of Our Saviour." St. Augustine said that nothing is more conductive to the attainment of eternal salvation than to think every day on the pains which Jesus Christ has suffered for the love of us. St. Alphonsus has chosen words in this book that can turn the coldest and most ungrateful heart towards our suffering Savior and away from sin and the perils of attachment to the world. This book will be useful to all, young and old, not just for Holy Week but throughout the year. As you read this unusual book you will feel that you are right there with our Lord and follow Him all the way to Calvary. By St. Alphonsus Liguori Publisher: Refuge of Sinners Year: 2014 256 Pages
  • By W. Doyle Gilligan Publisher: Lumen Christi Press 1994, Softcover, 124 pages Has both Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur This little book has been put together to point out the great benefit those receive who have devotion to the holy souls, and to help develop this devotion that ultimately focuses our living the divine realities. It is not a devotion that is out on a limb, so to speak. It is an integral part of the spirituality of the Catholic Church. (From the Preface)  
  • By Rev. Max F. Walz, C.PP.S. Publisher: TAN Books 2008, Softcover, 133 pages Veneration of the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ is a devotion as old as our Holy Faith. In Glories of the Precious Blood, Fr. Max Walz powerfully revisits the seven times that Christ shed His Precious, poignantly reminding us just how much Jesus and His Father love us. Along the way, he illuminates the Blessed Virgin's integral role as the "mystic vine" and illustrates how Jesus continues to pour out His Precious Blood in the sacrifice of the Mass and the administration of Sacraments. These pages readily inspire a devotion to the Precious Blood, and Fr. Walz lays out a number of ways readers can nurture this devotion: through praying the Rosary and chaplets dedicated to the Precious Blood, meditating on the Passion of Our Crucified Saviour, and prayerfully dedicating each day  of the week to one of the seven different times Christ shed His Blood. A devotion to the Precious Blood brings with it benefits for those who practice it, the Church as a whole and even souls who have gone before us. This book is an homage to the Precious Blood. No one who reads it will ever look at Christ's sufferings in the same way again. (From the back cover)

    Editor: Ian Ker Publisher: Novalis 2010, Hardcover, 109 pages These meditations, devotions and prayers have been selected by Ian Ker from the collection gathered together and published after Newman's death by his secretary and literary executor, William Neville of the Birmingham Oratory. Often surprisingly simple and direct, they combine the traditional language of Catholic devotion with Newman's own district voice. The bulk of the material is made up of meditations on Christian doctrine, with a selection of his devotions to Mary. Also included is his profound but delightful 'A Short Road to Perfection', which expresses vividly Newman's guiding conviction that we have no more to do to love and obey God than to perform our ordinary duties well. 'He is perfect who does the work of the day perfectly, and we need go beyond this to seek for perfection.' (From the back cover)
