TESTIMONIALS

“If you struggle with doubt, this is the book for you. If you are a 100% believer, it will be great to use with doubters you know. Their name is legion.” – Dr. Ronda Chervin, Professor Emerita of Philosophy, Holy Apostles College & Seminary
“The clarity that Geraghty brings to Newman’s Grammar of Assent is astounding, not only for its simplicity of description but also for its explanation of the great rift in our Christian faith that is more philosophical than it is theological. In this robust yet elegantly laid out book, Geraghty has provided an essential resource for every Catholic apologist.” Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, OP, Co-Author with Ronda Chervin of Catholic Realism: A Framework for the Refutation of Atheism and the Evangelization of Atheists

On the End Times, or The First Return of Christ

by Jacques Cabaud

To pray the “Our Father” is to pray for the rebirth of humanity through the destruction of the world as we know it, the world in which the Evil One is free to reign, and the establishment in its place of the Kingdom of God. This book explains the implications of our prayer in moral and metaphysical terms and is certain to become a tour de force in eschatological studies.

Mary: the Rosary, the Relationship, and Dragons

by Keith Berube

Mary: The Rosary, the Relationship and Dragons reveals intriguing, little known aspects of the Rosary, gently catapulting the reader into a wondrous world of sweet, ardent, ever burgeoning intimacy with the Princess of Heaven and into victorious battles against dragons. It’s the dream of every heart come true and it’s here for the asking: To be a knight, to be a prince or princess, to be the Beloved of the Queen of Heaven. The Rosary is a garden where we sit with Mary, a sword that smites demons, and a lived relationship with the Immaculate and her Son that imbues us with her heavenly scent and renders us a terrifying scourge to the Devil and an ever-more honored child of the King.

TESTIMONIALS

“In this inspired work, author Keith Berube offers penetrating insights into the mystery of Mary, the intimacy of life that all are called to share with her, and how the Rosary is the most sublime and efficacious means to this end – a Mariological tour de force.” –Jayson Brunelle, Author, Consecration to Jesus Christ, Through Mary and Joseph and The Blessed Mother’s Plan to Save Humanity: Marian Revelations and Necessity of Total Consecration
 

“Our Lady, the Rosary, swords, and dragons!  What’s not to like about this book! Keith Berube’s insights into the rosary are so profound that you will be hard pressed to find another book on the rosary quite like it. His message is personal, chivalrous, and contagious! Ultimately, it’s a love story about a snow-white princess who longs to hear your voice and be consoled by the mystical roses you lay at her feet.” -Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, Author, Champions of the Rosary: The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon

The Art of Accompaniment: Practical Steps for the Seminary Formator by Sister Marysia Weber, RSM

The Art of Accompaniment: Practical Steps for the Seminary Formator by Sister Marysia Weber, RSM

The Art of Accompaniment: Practical Steps for the Seminary Formator

by Sister Marysia Weber, RSM

The role of a seminary formator is to accompany the seminarian in the external forum and to discern with him, the seminary community, and larger Church community, whether he has a vocation to the Catholic priesthood. To accomplish this task effectively, the formator needs a vast array of skills that will enable him or her to listen to, understand, encourage, challenge, and adequately assess the seminarian in an open and honest way. This book by Sister Marysia Weber, RSM, offers many invaluable insights and practical tools that seminary formators can employ in their work.

Paperback: $14.95 | Kindle: $9.99 (ISBN-13: 978-1732594913)

TESTIMONIALS

“As the new Ratio Fundamentalis from Rome invites us to deepen the integration of each seminarian through accompaniment in formation, Sr. Marysia Weber, RSM, brings to bear in this work her years of experience in helping priests and seminarians grow in affective maturity necessary for ministry. This little book offers very helpful insights and practical recommendations to assist seminary formators as they work one-on-one with seminarians in developing the necessary relationship of trust for their growth. Formators will learn from her how to create and take advantage of formative moments in seminary life so that the human and affective flourishing of the man can lead to a flourishing of his divine vocation.” – Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

“Sister Marysia Weber, RSM, DO, articulates clear, relevant ways for the priest formator to accompany seminarians in their formation to the ministerial priesthood. Proposing contemporary assessment questions, this book helps the formation advisor both evaluate and assist the seminarian in his growth in affective maturity. I recommend this compact book particularly because of its practicality, reflection of the Church’s program of formation, and usefulness in identifying opportunities for interior growth for seminarians.” – Fr. Christopher Cooke, Director, Spiritual Year of Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary, Philadelphia.

“An invaluable resource that every seminary formator should have at his or her side.” – Fr. Dennis Billy, CSSr, author of Finding Our Way to God: Spiritual Direction and the Moral Life

“My colleague and friend, Sister Marysia Weber, RSM, has made an invaluable contribution to the work of priestly formation in her book, The Art of Accompaniment. Throughout the work, her skills as a psychiatrist are evident. Even more evident is her love and honor of the priestly vocation. The concept of accompaniment is key to every insight in the text. There simply is no longer a ‘one size fits all’ approach to priestly formation. Sister Marysia demonstrates both from science and theology varied and concrete ways in which more experienced priests can be both challenging and loving companions on a young man’s journey to ordination and a life of service to the Church. Her chapter on ‘Markers of Human Maturation’ is especially helpful because it presents clear and evidence based ways of helping a candidate recognize individual strengths while not fearing to tackle frailties that could compromise his future life and ministry in the priesthood. The chapter on communication skills is most compelling because it helps formators know how to phrase insights in ways that are acceptable to candidates. Sister Marysia clearly grasps the truth of the old adage, ‘I don’t say what I say; I say what you hear.’ The clearest and most objective evaluation I can give to The Art of Accompaniment is to say that I wish I had this book at hand when I began my own work in priestly formation decades ago. It is a significant and contemporary help in forming candidates for the priesthood after the mind of Christ, possessed of self-knowledge, and ready to serve the Church in our challenging times.” – Rev. Msgr. Thomas G. Caserta (Former Director of Spiritual Formation, Cathedral Seminary Residence, in the Diocese of Brooklyn and Pastor, St. Bernadette Church, Brooklyn, NY)
