 Our Description


For Catholics who strive daily to give God the love He deserves


“A small book with great dimensions of love and wisdom.”—Ave Maria

The great Jesuit pastor of souls, C. C. Martindale, was asked in 1946 upon his return from five years of confinement under the Nazis to give six readings for the secular BBC. An amazing enough concept in itself for those of us living in today’s society. But even more amazing was the subject: The talks were given during Holy Week. Collected in this newly released volume and divided into six parts, the simplicity of the talks makes them all the more effective— and useful any time of the year…



  • Creative Love
  • Redemptive Love
  • Self-sacrificing Love
  • Love Allembracing
  • Love to the End
  • Love Beyond the End

    What makes Father C. C. Martindale so helpful to ordinary Catholics?

    Father Martindale begins his talks with what is “absolutely fundamental in our Faith, which is, that God loves us. A Christian cannot admit that any solution of any problem can be the right one, if it interferes with that.” The clarity of his teaching continues as he covers…


  • The Lord’s punishment for sin
  • “I’m not in the state of mortal sin”: Our inadequacy in the face of God even when we discern no grave sins
  • Doing good: Are we really? Mixed motives of humans
  • “No amount of political regulations, pacts, laws, are going to alter that inner self of ours, that self to which we give the worship due only to God.”
  • “If we have permitted ourselves to contemplate at all the tortured dying of our Lord upon His Cross, we shall have taken over something of suffering into ourselves, and experience an incredible relief when we see the serenity and response of His actual death.”
  • “Being true man, He could offer sacrifice truly in man’s name: and, being God, could offer a sacrifice truly worthy of God.”
  • What is true love for God—and how do we accomplish it?

    “Deserves meditative reading. It will be useful for preachers who want some new thoughts and a new approach.”—Ave Maria

    “Creative Love brings together six doctrinal sermonettes, broadcast during Holy Week. They revitalize many aspects of our love for God and His for us, and are marked by the spiritual penetration, the original style that make Father Martindale’s books completely sui generis.”—Catholic World
