Exploring the Belief in the Real Presence

Exploring the Belief in the Real Presence

Exploring the Belief in the Real Presence (Second Edition)

by Dr. David J. Keys

When an evangelical minister asked him why one would believe that Jesus is present — body, blood, soul, and divinity — in communion, Dr. Keys began an intensive study into the ancient Christian belief of what is now often termed the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. This book is a result of that quest and presents the scriptural, historical, and even miraculous basis for such a belief.

Mary Kloska speaks to a ‘Seven Sisters’ Group about her book In Our Lady’s Shadow (May 21, 2021)

A La Sombra de Nuestra Señora: La Espiritualidad de la Oración por los Sacerdotes

by Mary Kloska

A la Sombra de Nuestra Señora: ‘La Espiritualidad de Rezar por los Sacerdotes’ es una guía para las mujeres, que las lleva a profundizar en una meditación sobre la relación entre Nuestra Señora y Jesús, el Sumo Sacerdote Eterno. Nos muestra sobre el desarrollo de su relación -desde su infancia (como  ‘Pequeño Jesús Crucificado’), pasando por Su Misión y Pasión (donde la Virgen fue Su compañera y Regalo) hasta su Resurrección y vida con Ella en la eternidad. A través de esta meditación, el lector no sólo llega a conocer más profundamente la relación de María con Su Hijo, sino también Su papel para ayudar a todos los hombres llamados al sacerdocio. Adentrándose en la espiritualidad de Nuestra Madre, de rezar por los sacerdotes, se enseña al lector la mejor manera de acompañar espiritualmente a los sacerdotes como madre, hermana, hija y amiga espiritual.

TESTIMONIALS

 
“As the prayers of Saint Monica for her wayward son helped Augustine to become a great saint, the prayers of women help priests to likewise grow in holiness, our universal calling echoed every time we celebrate Mass and recite along with the angelic choir in heaven, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of Hosts.’ May many women be inspired by this book to pray for the holiness of our priests.” – Very Rev. Peter Samuel Kucer, MSA, author of A Brief Historical Survey of Marian Devotion and Theology
“Mary Kloska’s book In Our Lady’s Shadow – The Spirituality of Praying for Priests is one of the most motivational contemporary Catholic books I have ever read. In our time of crisis in the Church, it is of vital importance that we be praying for priests in a way even more intense than before. Read it! It may enrich your own spiritual life in a way you cannot predict.” – Ronda Chervin, Ph.D., retired Catholic Philosophy Professor, author of numerous books, and  presenter on EWTN and Catholic Radio

“Published on International Women’s Day, Mary Kloska’s new book… IN OUR LADY’S SHADOW: The Spirituality of Praying for Priests… is a timely reflection on the beautiful mission that women in particular have of praying for priests. At a time when many women find themselves confused regarding their role in society and their place in the Church… the Body of Christ… the author points out the special, maternal giftedness of womanhood and the wonderful spirituality that flows from this reality. The author reminds women that, contrary to popular opinion, it is “littleness” that makes the biggest difference in this world.” – Fr. Lawrence Edward Tucker, SOLT… author of The Prayer of Jesus Crucified; Adventures in the Father’s Joy!; To Whom the Heart Decided to Love; The Redemption of San Isidro.

“What a tremendous consolation to Jesus it must have been to have His tender Mother there to support him with all her love and prayers throughout his priestly life, and especially on his way to Calvary. How much more do her other beloved priest sons need this Mother of consolation and mercy accompany them while they fulfill their priestly roles. I believe this book, “In our lady shadow: The spirituality of praying for priests” will inspire, those who read it, to fulfill our Lady’s urgent request to pray for priests in the spirit of Mary, the mother of Jesus, the Mother of priests and Queen of apostles. May all the love in the hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph fill the hearts of every priest to overflowing!” – Bob Cantoni, host with Bob Carter of WCAT Radio’s “If You Know Mary, Then You Know Jesus”

“This book is a wonderful resource for young men studying for the priesthood, a beloved parish priest or priest friend, as well as anyone who feels drawn to pray for priests. It is a treasure trove of insight and gold mine of inspiration, so needed in this challenging modern world.” – Theresa Thomas, Family Columnist, Mother of nine, and author of Big Hearted (Scepter)
“As a mother of small children and someone dedicated to praying weekly holy hours for priests, this book helps me to love more deeply the devotions of priests and how much they need our prayers. I am so pleased to have it as a guide. A very special book!” – Amelia Colone, wife, mother and member of the Seven Sisters Apostolate of weekly adoration for priests

Voices from the Upper Room

Voices from the Upper Room

by Father Dominic Lenk, O.S.B.

Just who were those people gathered together in the Upper Room during those three days between the crucifixion and the resurrection? Imagine with the author all those people gathered in the Upper Room during those dark hours. United in a shared grief and striving to make sense of what they have experienced, these same people are united in prayer and in the breaking of the bread in imitation of the Lord Jesus. Yet at the same time they watch and wait and pray. In prayer, let us keep vigil with them through the pages of this book.

Rise and Fall of the American Empire by Dr. Richard Bishirjian

Rise and Fall of the American Empire by Dr. Richard Bishirjian

Rise and Fall of the American Empire

by Dr. Richard Bishirjian

Rise and Fall of the American Empire examines the growth of the United States into an American Empire and the causes of its inevitable death. The suggestion that the American democratic republic is now an American Empire contains an observation and a judgment. What is it about democratic regimes that leads them to self-destruction, to suicide? How does this condition come about, and what are the likely consequences? Acclaimed political realist Dr. Richard Bishirjian walks us through a possible future where our abandonment of God and country could result in the death of the American experiment.

Prodigal Pilgrim: Letters to Pope Francis from Lourdes, Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje

Prodigal Pilgrim: Letters to Pope Francis from Lourdes, Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje

Prodigal Pilgrim: Letters to Pope Francis from Lourdes, Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje

by Peter Breen

The Christian community has been studying the medical and scientific evidence for Marian apparitions since Mary the Mother of Jesus first appeared to the Apostle James at Saragossa in Spain in the year 40 CE. More recently, Mary has credibly appeared at Medjugorje in Bosnia Herzegovina for the past 40 years with the message God can save us. Is Mary the prophet of our times?
 
Pope Francis gave official approval to Medjugorje pilgrimages in 2019. During a pilgrimage to Lourdes, Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje, the Prodigal Pilgrim writes to Pope Francis, urging formal recognition of the Medjugorje apparitions. Mary offers humanity a lifeline, says the author, an alternative to David Attenborough’s observation that things can only get worse for planet Earth.
