  • By Thomas Merton Published by Farrar, Strauss, Giroux Used, 1988, Hard Cover, 212 Pages Readable copy in good condition with some underlining and marks in the margins mostly in the first half of the book. Library copy. Dust jacket is in good condition. During the years 1964-65, Merton sought, and was finally given, permission to live alone in his hermitage at the Abbey of Gethsemani. These years were criticalhe had to balance commitment to the demands of the monastic community with the call to a more solitary lifeand the writing from that time is consequently charged with disappointments and uncertainties, as well as quiet reflection and humor. Merton's frustration with church complacency and the censorship of his ideas is evident, a factor that probably hindered publication of this journal until now. But he also records musings, dreams, the visits of special friends. A very personal piece of writing blending "heavenliness and anguish," wherein unfolds its special appeal. Carol J. Lichtenberg, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. (From Amazon.com website)

    By Ignacio Larranaga Published by Mediaspaul Used Book, 1994, Softcover, 452 pages "Here, told in a vivid and original way, is the full story of the life of St. Francis of Assisi. This story has been told many times before, but Fr. Larranaga tells it with a new spirit, seamlessly combining a modern spirit with the freshness and sense of wonder of the Fioretti. When Francis Bernardone was held as a prisoner of war at the age of 20, he never dreamed that he would become a knight in the service of Lady Poverty. By the time he died 25 years later, he had become the Poor Man of God, the living image of the Crucified Savior." (From Goodreads website) Book is like new. No marks or underlining found.

  • By Alden Hatch and  Seamus Walshe Published by Hawthorn Books 1957 Fifth Printing, Hardcover, 253 pages USED BOOK - Clean copy, has dust jacket which is in good condition except at upper spine where there is some ripping and along spine where there is some wear. Pages are yellowed but intact. Good copy overall. "Of all the great figures of out times, none is more universally respected or admired by men of all faiths than Eugenio Pacelli, Pope Pius XII. Yet, although he has led the Church through some of the most turbulent years in the history of mankind - including World War II, the postwar menace of Communism, the Korean War, the unrest in the Soviet satellites - very little is known by most people, whether Catholic or non-Catholic, about his life, his full career, and his many earlier achievements. There have been many books about Pius XII, but none seem to have told his story in terms the general reader might appreciate and enjoy. Here, for the first time, is a truly popular biography of the Pope. Written by Alden Hatch, an American Protestant famous for his biographies of the Eisenhowers, Clare Booth Luce, and other public figures, and Seamus Walshe, an Irish Catholic who has taught for many years at the Notre Dame International School in Rome and has close connections in Vatican circles, Crown of Glory is an intimate portrait of a great man. The result of two years of research in Rome itself among people who have known the Pope all his life, as well as in newspaper and magazine files and in libraries, this warmly sympathetic portrait brings new light to our knowledge of one of the most important figures of the century. From Eugenio's early days to enter the priesthood to Pius' vision during his recent illness, his story unfolds in detail which will interest readers of all faiths and contribute much to our understanding of this unique figure in modern history."

  • USED BOOK By Deirdre Manifold Published by The Militia of Our Immaculate Mother. 1992, Soft Cover, 280 pages. The book is in  good condition overall. The first 50 pages or so are slightly dog-eared at the bottom. The pages are clean and there are no noticeable marks. A very readable copy.   In this book, the extraordinary story is told, how the international conspiracy to achieve a materialist world dictatorship is being pursued. The facade of ideologies and parliamentary politics is unerringly penetrated, to reveal the hidden mechanisms of world power politics, in all their Machiavellian subtlety. Deirdre Manifold, a Galway housewife, made it her study over a lifetime to unravel the peculiar and unique connections of this conspiracy, its roots in the sixteenth century, its present-day extent, with tentacles both in the Kremlin and in Wall Street. This book is challenging. One cannot ignore it. Either one must accept the analysis put forward or one must demonstrate where it is wrong.

  • Used book like new. 180 pages. Sophia Institute Press. Written for soldiers by Blessed Fulton Sheen in the darkest moments of World War II, this small prayer book has been proven in combat and hallowed by the suffering, prayers, and sacrifices of thousands of Catholic fighting men and women on ships, submarines, and aircraft, in fortresses and foxholes, and even in hellish prisoner of war camps across Europe and the Pacific. Peacetime led those soldiers and sailors to put aside this powerful wartime prayer book as they entered a world rendered more secure because of their sacrifices. New enemies have shattered the security those good soldiers won. Terrorism now takes as its battlefield our homes, our schools, and our workplaces, threatening even those of us who are not in the military. Duct tape may protect us from chemical and biological weapons, but it surely won't protect us from the corrosive, soul-destroying impact of fear, anger, uncertainty, and despair, which daily life on this battlefield is causing already.
