Let the profound yet practical insights you will find in this little spiritual treasury form and focus your spiritual life, filling it with a new conviction and purpose.


Few Christians can recall all Seven of Our Lord's Last Words on the Cross. Yet these “Seven Words” – brief sentences spoken by Him – give us Our Saviour's sacred parting instructions, messages intended not only for their few immediate hearers on the hill of Calvary, but spoken to all generations by way of Holy Scripture. For nothing that Our Lord said or did is without meaning for each of us today. Despite Jesus' agony on the Cross, these words do not express desperation or anger, but rather the strength of a Person in full command of His faculties to the very end. They are replete with that immense and far-more-than-human love for us which was unquenchable in Our Lord, even by torture and the approach of death, as exemplified in St. John's statement: “He loved them unto the end.” (John 13:1).

Seven Last Words Of Christ On The Cross
Wisdom from John Paul II


Beloved Pope John Paul II was one of the most popular and inspirational religious figures of our time. In Lent and Easter Wisdom From Pope John Paul II, the late Holy Father's thought-provoking words lead readers through a journey of conversion throughout the season Lent and Easter week.

Each daily reflection–from Ash Wednesday through the Second Sunday of Easter–begins with thoughts from Pope John Paul II on some appropriate theme, supported by Scripture, a prayer, and a suggested activity for spiritual growth.




The Sacred Passion

In this book, Fr. de la Palma provides an aid for meditating on the Passion. He recreates the events of Jesus' life beginning with Holy Thursday and concluding with the burial of Our Lord and a powerful evocation of the coming resurrection. With vivid detail and a constant recognition of the role the Blessed Mother played in those days, Fr. de la Palma helps the reader enter into the Last Supper, the institution of the priesthood and the Eucharist, the arrest of Our Lord, the denial of St. Peter, the trials before Caiaphas and Pilate, the scourging and mocking, and finally, the Crucifixion. His meditations hew closely to the Gospel accounts, adding to them insights from other scriptures and frequently culminating in fervent prayers to Our Lord and Our Lady.


Sacred Passion
Divine Intimacy Vol. II


This is the classic book of daily meditations on the interior life, revised and expanded to correspond with the feasts of the Catholic liturgical year, issued in four separate volumes. Volume I covers from the First Sunday of Advent through the Eighth Week of Ordinary Time. Volume II, from Ash Wednesday through Pentecost. Volume III, from the Ninth Sunday through the Twenty-first Week of Ordinary Time. Volume IV, from the Twenty-second Sunday through the Thirty-fourth Week of Ordinary Time. Divine Intimacy is considered a classic throughout the Christian world, a work prepared with loving and conscientious labor by one of the great Catholic teachers of our time. This revision of his famous work vibrates with the freshness of the springtime of grace stirred up by Vatican II and inspired by the renewed impulse to a more vital return to Sacred Scripture. Of all the books of meditations available today, this series is the most practical, liturgically and spiritually formative, and helpful for true communion with God.


Sister Emmerich's account of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ, while faithful to the Bible, is heart-rending, edifying and surprising-because of its intimate detail. Based on the visions of this great mystic, The Dolorous Passion recounts in incredible detail the horrendous sufferings undergone by our Savior in His (it would seem) superhumanly heroic act of Redemption. Illuminating in its description of Mary's participation in the sufferings of her Son, this book gives the reader a poignant understanding of why Our Lady is sometimes called our “Co-Redemptrix.” The Dolorous Passion is a singular book that conveys a lasting impression of the terrible agony of Our Lord's sufferings for us. Here is a book that will melt a heart of stone!
