Fuera de las Tinieblas

por Mary Kloska

Aquí, al principio de este libro, no quiero explicar mucho sobre mí (quien soy, o dónde vivo, o dónde estudié), en su lugar, me gustaría simplemente presentarlo como es: una colección de tesoros que Jesús ha compartido con mi corazón. Al hacer esto espero ser testigo del gran poder que la Cruz de Jesús contiene en sí misma. Mi corazón se estremece al pensar de mi vida interior con Él, tan abierta ante el mundo, pero debo recordar que mi esposo fue crucificado desnudo—dando todo de Sí mismo al mundo, y permitiéndonos alcanzarlo y tocar Sus heridas desnudas, para que podamos conocer el abismo insondable de Su Amor, contenidas en ellas. Y por eso, debo estar ‘desnuda’ espiritualmente con Él, para que todos ustedes puedan recibir Su Amor en esta forma íntima. Ya que Jesús da tales dones para ser compartidos con todos en Su Iglesia. Ruego que quien soy yo, no los distraiga de Quien es Él, ya que eso es lo que Él quiere mostrarles aquí. Todo lo que soy es: Su pequeña esposa crucificada, hecha una con Él en la Cruz. Él es todo en mí. Y así, similar a San Pablo, debo vivir simplemente para poder decir: “No soy yo quien vive, sino Cristo Crucificado vive en mí.” Ruego que ustedes lo encuentren en estas páginas. Amén. Aleluya. Fíat.

The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love

 

ELOGIOS ADICIONALES

“Mary Kloska ha pintado otro ícono maravilloso, como el título de este libro. Ella nos provee una buena explicación del ícono, el cual representa el Amor de Cristo como suave, humilde y fuerte. Aunque Jesús es mostrado en la Cruz y sangrando abundantemente, Mary nos muestra que Él tiene el control.  Él mira la escena frente a Él. Es como si está mirando directamente a los ojos de cada persona, que vivió, está viviendo, o que vivirá. Mira a los ojos de los niños abortados y malogrados (de aborto espontáneo). El conoce la necesidad de salvación que tienen, y se sacrifica a Sí mismo. Su fuerza es clara en esa Mirada, en el hecho de entregarse, más aún que Su debilidad de ser crucificado. Esa profundidad entra en las páginas de este libro y atrae al lector, contemplativamente. Un lector no puede apresurarse a leer los capítulos. Cada frase debe ser pensada; cada imagen debe introducida. Cada sección, de cada capítulo, se basa en la siguiente de una manera deliberada y escrita con el intento de aportar comprensión espiritual al lector.”—Dr. Cynthia Toolin-Wilson, WCAT Radio anfitriona de Autor a Autor”

“Este manuscrito me afectó profundamente en mi vida espiritual… y es muy difícil para alguien de 82-años aprender algo nuevo… esto realmente fue cambio de vida para mi espiritualidad.”—Ronda Chervin, autora de Siempre un Nuevo Comienzo: Una Conversación Entre Guerreros Católicos Espirituales Rotos

“Este libro es un regalo para cualquiera que lo lea, porque nos muestra como—así como Jesús le dijo a Mary—‘podemos ser hechos profundamente ‘uno’ con Él, en la Cruz.”—Hna. Patrizia Pasquini, ASC, Generalate hermanas de La Más Preciosísima Sangre

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Mary Kloska es de Elkhart, Indiana, y ha vivido una vida única. Al graduarse de Notre Dame en l999, dedicó 20 años en la misiones sirviendo a los pobres (incluyendo huérfanos) como también orando como una ermitaña consagrada alrededor del mundo—Siberia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Sur África, Las Filipinas, México, Tierra Santa, como también por toda Europa.

Medjugorje: My Lifelong Journey with Our Lady, Queen of Peace

Medjugorje: My Lifelong Journey with Our Lady, Queen of Peace

Medjugorje: My Lifelong Journey with Our Lady, Queen of Peace

by Penny Abbruzzese

Amidst a period of suffering, Penny Abbruzzese hears that the Virgin Mary was appearing to six children at Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Wondering if Our Lady can comfort her still-grieving heart, Penny journeys on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, unaware that this journey and search for healing would change her life in ways she could never have imagined. Along the way, she is inspired to look into the depths of her soul and ask questions about her faith.  Do people really believe in miracles? Are apparitions real and can they truly change someone’s life? Once there, she miraculously received the grace to communicate with Our Lady, hearing from her, “Mary gives you hope.” Our Lady’s ongoing messages propel Penny to a new way of life. Her heart is opened with a new focus on helping people she had once ignored–the lost souls, the sick, and the disabled. In response, Penny leads more than 100 pilgrimages with countless pilgrims, witnessing abundant grace and many miracles. She finds the answer to all her questions: yes, miracles and healings do happen. This book tells the story of Penny’s 36 year journey in which she gives of herself for others, finding hope and the faith to share that hope with those she encounters along the way. Penny’s story is one that will inspire anyone to believe that miracles do happen, especially on a journey of trials and tears.

Medjugorje Message to visionary Marija Pavlovic from the Blessed Mother

March 25, 2021
 
Dear children! Also today I am with you to tell you: Little children, who prays, does not fear the future and does not lose hope. You are chosen to carry joy and peace because you are mine. I have come here with the name ‘Queen of Peace’ because the devil wants peacelessness and war, he wants to fill your heart with fear of the future – but the future is God’s. That is why, be humble and pray, and surrender everything into the hands of the Most High Who created you. Thank you for having responded to my call.

TESTIMONIALS

“In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus said… ‘You are the light of the world!’ In this beautiful memoir, the reader will see how that happens; how Jesus illuminates, elevates, and sanctifies a docile soul open to his transforming love… and how that soul then goes forth as light into the darkness of this world. Penny’s wonderful story gives a powerful witness to our Mother’s fundamental role in this mysterious process in which our Father draws his children into his presence and makes them one with him… as he is one with them.” – 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

“Penny Abbruzzese’s book Medjugorje: My Lifelong Journey with Our Lady, Queen of Peace is a heartfelt tribute to the power of Our Lady’s Love working within a life and heart truly open to Her grace. Penny takes the reader by the hand and travels with them through the joys and heartaches of her own life, all the while showing the ever growing influence of Our Lady’s Love and Teachings, especially as shared with her through Medjugorje. This book will inspire faith and hope in the reader that the power of God and Our Lady’s Motherly care is truly alive and active in each person’s ordinary life.” — Mary Kloska, author of A Heart Frozen in the Wilderness: The Reflections of a Siberian Missionary

“In the 40 years of unprecedented reported daily apparitions of Mary in Medjugorje, Our Lady’s messages, which Penny strives to emulate, has led her to new life in the Holy Spirit as I have witnessed her spiritual growth during the 30 years since we met. Our Lady’s School of Love in Medjugorje takes Penny’s pain and suffering from her brother’s tragic death to peace and confidence in God’s Providence as she shares her journey of faith which I find truly inspiring.” –– Fr. John McFadden, Retired Priest of the Diocese of Scranton, PA

“This is an excellent book of a life transformed by a simple message from Our Lady.  I was inspired by Penny’s courage to travel to an unknown country; the adventure captivated me, but what kept me reading was how that one trip kept bearing fruit in so many unexpected ways!” — Marie Baker- Harrogate, N. Yorkshire, UK

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Penny Abbruzzese has a strong devotion to Our Blessed Mother and is a religious pilgrims’ coordinator, who made her first pilgrimage to Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina in March 1984.  Since then, Penny has been to Medjugorje more than 100 times with groups from near and far. In the 37 years since her first pilgrimage, Penny has led tours to holy places such as Fatima, Lourdes, Garabandal and Santiago de Compostela. She has visited shrines in France, Italy, Bavaria, Mexico, Turkey, Greece, Poland, Prague, Vienna and Israel’s Christian holy places.

Working alongside the New York City Croatian Church which is a sister parish to St. James in Medjugorje, Penny sponsored several visionaries and well-known priests from Medjugorje to speak in New York.   As one of the founding officers of a non-profit organization, Our Lady Queen of Peace Prayer Group, Penny published a newsletter, Mary’s Mantle, for 25 years with a readership of over 5,000 subscribers. Mary’s Mantle expounded on Our Lady’s messages, featuring prominent articles about healing – both physical and spiritual – and beautiful testimonies of conversion through Our Lady’s reported apparitions.

Several prayer groups were started by Penny and (always) a priest, along with a small group of friends who had experienced Medjugorje together. Four prayer groups met monthly, meeting from 1986 until 2013 praying for vocations, families, world peace and for an end to abortion of First Friday until March 2020, when the risk of COVID19 discontinued this devotion.

Penny was a guest of Monsignor Tom Hartman’s Rockville Centre Diocese’s Network, Telecare, back in 1987 and the 1990’s sharing about her experience in bringing internationally known close friend and prayer partner, Detective Steven McDonald, to Medjugorje.  Steven became a quadriplegic after being shot in NY’s Central Park back in 1986.

In 2014, Penny co-produced a documentary about the reported apparitions of Medjugorje entitled “God Exists…The Queen of Peace Speaks from Medjugorje.”  Penny’s film was written and produced by Peter Powell, a researcher and cinematographer who had worked on more than 150 media campaigns in the USA and overseas.  Penny’s narrator was Rita Gam, a veteran actress, who was under contract with MGM studios.  Over 3,000 copies of Penny’s documentary have been distributed and are available on Amazon.

Penny’s life took a drastic turn when she was very far away from her faith.  The pain of her younger brother’s suicide brought Penny to her knees.  Her conversion story, Medjugorje…My Lifelong Journey with Our Lady, was inspired by Fr. Svetazor Kraljevic, OFM, in Medjugorje.   In her book, Penny takes the reader from her darkest days of losing her closest friend, through stages of surrender, and finally drawing closer to Jesus by way of Our Lady’s messages from Medjugorje.

Penny has been married to Michael for 50 years.  She is the mother of three children and grandmother of six and currently lives in Lynbrook, NY.

Z ciemności…

Z ciemności…

Z Ciemności…

Mary Kloska (tłumaczenie: Agata Wesołowska)

Ta książka to kolekcja skarbów, których Pan Jezus zechciał udzielić sercu autorki ‒ Mary Kloska. Dzieląc swoje refleksje z czytelnikiem, pragnie ona jak najlepiej zaświadczyć o wielkiej mocy, jaką zawiera w sobie Krzyż Chrystusa. Choć, jak sama przyznaje, drży na myśl o tym, że oto jej własne życie duchowe ujawnia się przed światem, to pamięta także, że jej Oblubieniec został ukrzyżowany nagi ‒ ofiarując ludziom samego siebie. Dzięki temu my możemy wyciągnąć ręce ku Zbawicielowi i dotknąć Jego nagich ran, aby poznać niezgłębioną otchłań Bożej Miłości, która jest w nich ukryta. Autorka decyduje się więc pozostać „naga” duchowo razem z Panem, abyśmy mogli otrzymać Jego Miłość ‒ w taki właśnie intymny sposób. Ponieważ Jezus daje wielkie dary do podziału z całym swoim Kościołem, Mary pragnie modlić się, aby to, kim ona jest, nie odwróciło uwagi od tego, kim jest On. Chrystus sam chce nas doprowadzić do swej tajemnicy. Autorka niniejszej książki odsłania się jako mała żona ukrzyżowana wraz z Panem na Krzyżu. Zgodnie z tym, co powiedział święty Paweł, pragnie ona żyć tak, aby móc przyznać, że „już nie ja żyję, ale Chrystus (Ukrzyżowany) żyje we mnie”. Mary modli się, abyśmy mogli Go spotkać na kartach tej książki. Amen. Alleluja. Fiat.

Serce Fiat Ukrzyżowanej Miłości

 

Świadectwa

„Nagość fizyczna i duchowa to głęboka rzeczywistość obecna w słowach Mary Kloska. Jezus jest całkowicie obnażony wobec zła minionych pokoleń oraz wobec tych, które jeszcze się nie narodziły. Ta książka zawiera wezwanie i zaproszenie do ujawnienia naszej duchowej nagości oraz do trwania razem z Chrystusem w Jego podróży do celu, jakim jest wola Ojca. To prawda, że z grobu ostatecznie wyjdzie światło, ale najpierw musimy wejść w ciemność.”

Diakon Tom Fox, katolicki „podcaster” i prowadzący w katolickim radiu

„Mary Kloska namalowała jeszcze jedną cudowną ikonę, będącą swoistym „tytułem” tej książki. W jej wstępie znajdziemy dokładne objaśnienie tego obrazu, który przedstawia miłość Chrystusa jako łagodną, pokorną i silną. Mimo, iż Jezus jest ukrzyżowany i cały we krwi, Mary udowadnia nam, że Zbawiciel panuje nad sytuacją. Spogląda przed siebie. Wydaje się, że patrzy bezpośrednio w oczy każdej osoby, która żyła w przeszłości, żyje obecnie lub dopiero się narodzi. Patrzy w oczy dzieci abortowanych i poronionych. Zna ich potrzebę zbawienia i poświęca samego siebie. Na tej ikonie moc Zbawiciela jest nawet bardziej widoczna (w spojrzeniu i akcie ofiarowania się) niż Jego ukrzyżowana słabość. Niezwykła głębia przenika strony książki i angażuje czytelnika, zapraszając go do kontemplacji, a zniechęcając do pośpiechu w czytaniu. Każde zdanie woła o uwagę, a każdy przywołany obraz ‒ o refleksję. Kolejne rozdziały opierają się na poprzednich w sposób, który jest celowy i przemyślany, mający na celu doprowadzenie czytelnika do duchowego poznania.”

Dr Cynthia Toolin-Wilson, prowadząca audycję „Author to Author”” w radiu WCAT

„Ten rękopis dotknął głęboko moje życie duchowe… a człowiekowi 82-letniemu bardzo trudno jest nauczyć się czegoś nowego… To naprawdę przemieniło moją duchowość.”

Ronda Chervin, autorka książki „Always a New Beginning: A Conversation Between Broken Catholic Spiritual Warriors”

„Kiedy święty Paweł udał się do Koryntu i rozpoczął tam głoszenie Dobrej Nowiny, oznajmił swoim słuchaczom, że nie przybył, aby dzielić się mądrością tego świata czy wzniosłą retoryką, lecz jedynie prostą, ewangeliczną prawdą o Jezusie Chrystusie, i to… „ukrzyżowanym” (1 Kor 2, 1-2). W swojej nowej książce „Z ciemności” autorka, artystka i muzyk ‒ Mary Kloska ‒ podąża tą samą doniosłą drogą. Niestety, z powodu hedonistycznego środowiska kulturowego, które dominuje w naszym społeczeństwie, kroczenie za Jezusem Ukrzyżowanym jest wędrówką raczej samotną. Nawet w tych nielicznych miejscach, gdzie chrześcijaństwo jest nadal praktykowane, nacisk na krzyż jest zauważalnie zmniejszony, jeśli nie wręcz nieobecny (a zastąpiony tzw. „ewangelią dobrobytu”). Zatem, trudno wyobrazić sobie bardziej aktualny traktat duchowy niż ten. Autorka zabiera czytelnika w głąb piękna, tajemnicy, mądrości i mocy Jezusa ukrzyżowanego poprzez duchowe spostrzeżenia i obserwacje, które są świeże, inspirujące i cudownie ożywiające dla ducha. Jak deszcz na pustyni, książka ta wkracza w „duchową pustkę” naszych czasów i, co za tym idzie, niewątpliwie stanie się ważną lekturą wielkopostną, a także punktem odniesienia dla Nowej Ewangelizacji.”

Lawrence Edward Tucker, SOLT, autor „The Prayer of Jesus Crucified: A Simple Way to Go Further in Prayer”; „Adventures in The Father’s Joy! Mission Stories for the New Evangelization”; „To Whom The Heart Decided To Love”; „The Redemption Of San Isidro: a Tale of Mercy and Love”

„Ta książka jest darem dla każdego, kto będzie ją czytał, ponieważ pokazuje nam, jak ‒ według słów Jezusa skierowanych do Mary ‒ «możemy stać się do głębi jednością» z Nim na Krzyżu.”

Patrizia Pasquini, ASC, siostra ze Zgromadzenia Najdroższej Krwi Chrystusa

O Autorce

Mary Kloska pochodzi z Elkhart, w stanie Indiana. Wychowała się w polskiej rodzinie wielodzietnej (dwanaścioro rodzeństwa), do której należało także wiele przybranych dzieci, jak również inne osoby potrzebujące, które pojawiały się w rodzinie na jakiś czas. Obecnie Mary ma ponad 70 siostrzeńców/siostrzenic. Autorka książki prowadzi bardzo wyjątkowe życie. Po ukończeniu studiów w Notre Dame w 1999 r., przez niemal 20 lat służyła na misjach w wielu miejscach na świecie (na Syberii, Filipinach, w Ziemi Świętej, Nigerii, Tanzanii, Republice Południowej Afryki, Meksyku i w licznych krajach europejskich). Chociaż Mary wiele czasu spędziła na milczeniu i modlitwie, to ‒ jak na ironię ‒ uwielbia dzieci oraz wykazuje dużo twórczej i radosnej inicjatywy, gdy chodzi o służbę zarówno młodszym, jak i starszym. W swoim dorobku ma wiele lat spędzonych na misjach, gdzie zajmowała się rozmaitymi posługami: prowadziła rekolekcje i proste katechezy, animowała grupy modlitewne, udzielała kierownictwa duchowego, pomagała w modlitwach o uwolnienie, jak również zmieniała pieluchy, karmiła dzieci i myła podłogi. Po intensywnych okresach pracy misyjnej, Mary udawała się na miejsca odosobnienia jako pustelniczka (m.in. przez trzy lata funkcjonowała jako oficjalna pustelnica diecezjalna, składająca śluby na ręce biskupa). Ostatnie kilka lat spędziła jako pełnoetatowa niania dla trojaczków, bliźniaków i dzieci w rodzinach wielodzietnych.

A Philosopher Reflects on the Rosary by Raymond Dennehy

A Philosopher Reflects on the Rosary by Raymond Dennehy

A Philosopher Reflects on the Rosary

by Raymond Dennehy

In this book, Catholic philosopher Raymond Dennehy demonstrates to the reader that besides being a powerful source of God’s grace and, as Father Garrigou-Lagrange observed, “a school of contemplation,” the Rosary is also a remedy for the errors of secular humanism; it is a prayer that affirms the goodness of the world and worldly progress while at the same time opening our minds and hearts evermore to the truth that the world belongs to God and that progress is true progress only when it leads to Him.
 
Paperback $14.99 | Kindle $9.99

TESTIMONIALS

“Here, at last, is a book of reflections on the Rosary written by a Philosopher. And Dennehy is the best kind of philosopher: one whose brilliant observations are refined by poignant experience, whose philosophical metal is forged by practical fire. Raymond Dennehy understands firsthand the importance of wielding the weapon of the Rosary through life: from the rigors of boot camp; to near-death in a typhoon at sea as a Naval Officer; and later as a family man and professor. Let this Soldier-Philosopher navigate you through the mysteries of the Rosary. This book reminds us that we not only have to think our way through life, but also to be prepared to fight the good fight. Raymond Dennehy has known firsthand the storm of the fourth watch of the night: savor this book that teaches how the the rope of the Rosary’s mysteries can pull you to safety. This book is not just good philosophy. It’s a battle plan.” —Annabelle Moseley, author of Sacred Braille: The Rosary as Masterpiece

“A more adequate read for today’s Catholics under siege in a secular world would be hard to find. In these pages, philosopher Ray Dennehy draws upon the wisdom of the Rosary as a way to more fully engage our Catholic faith.” Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, OP, Lay Dominican of the Central U.S. Province of St. Albert the Great

“Raymond Dennehy’s gracious gift to the Blessed Mother is a wonderful boon to us all. While many fine books have looked at the Rosary through various helpful lenses, this author’s acute perspective sees it as a cure for the growing secular humanism that denies or rejects God by opening our eyes to ‘the “goodness of the world and worldly progress,’ while at the same time opening our hearts and minds to the God Who created the world and to Whom all true progress leads. Any lover of philosophy (literally, ‘the love of wisdom’) and lover of the Blessed Mother (often called ‘The Seat of Wisdom’) is going to love this book.  Building upon each Rosary mystery, the author unfolds beautiful, sublime insights culled from classical wisdom, scripture, and even modern science — insights that penetrate to the heart of a host of controversial issues plaguing our world today. So, read, enjoy, contemplate, and progress toward God through the Rosary! A Philosopher Reflects on the Rosary will show you how to do it in a most delightful way.” Kevin Vost, Psy.D., author of books including Memorize the Mass! and Memorize the Latin Mass!

“Raymond Dennehy’s book, A Philosopher Reflects on the Rosary, is both an incredible spiritual reflection on this age-old prayer, as well as a profound commentary to modernity’s struggles. It engages the reader’s mind from a philosopher’s perspective, yet touches the reader’s heart with prayerful and practical wisdom. By applying his vast knowledge and truly striving to live as a son of Mary, Raymond has uncovered a unique and powerful outlook on the Rosary that can guide the reader on his quest for holiness.” Mary Kloska, author of The Holiness of Womanhood and Out of the Darkness
“Dr. Raymond Dennehy’s book on the Rosary is unique in a number of ways. It is a philosopher contemplating the Mysteries of the Rosary, including discussions on themes which are very pertinent to our life, like our understanding of freedom and self-sacrifice for the sake of others. It is autobiographical, in the sense that Dr. Dennehy takes the reader on a journey of faith, trust and devotion. It is spiritual, speaking of a personal relationship with God that deeply influences one’s life and choices. Those reading (and praying with) this book will certainly grow in the appreciation of the Rosary, and its relevance to their daily lives.” —Fr. Nicholas Cachia, author of 33 Days . . . with St. Joseph
“The philosopher is always in danger of floating away into the abstract world of ideas, and the popular opinion sees prayer as an escape from reality into the spiritual realm. The combination of philosophy and prayer does not sound like a recipe for dealing with everyday challenges. But in this book, Raymond Dennehy shows that real philosophy and the life of faith and prayer are all too gritty and concrete. In Dennehy’s hands, the Rosary, a meditation on real, concrete, human events, has quite a lot to do with philosophy, current issues, and our day to day lives as we foster a desire for God in a messy world. A great meditation spiritually, philosophically and practically.” Matthew D’Antuono, author of Philosophy Fridays, The Wise Guy and the Fool, and A Fool’s Errand

In Our Lady’s Shadow, authored by Mary Kloska

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

In Our Lady’s Shadow: The Spirituality of Praying for Priests

by Mary Kloska

In Our Lady’s Shadow–the Spirituality of Praying for Priests is a guide for women, taking them deep into a meditation upon the relationship between Our Lady and Jesus, the Eternal High Priest. It reflects on the development of their relationship–from His Childhood (as ‘Little Jesus Crucified’), through His Mission and Passion (where Our Lady was His Helpmate and Gift), to His Resurrection and life with Her in eternity. Through this meditation, the reader not only comes to know more deeply the relationship of Mary with Her Son, but also Her role in helping all men called to the priesthood. By entering into Our Mother’s spirituality of praying for priests, the reader is taught the best way to spiritually accompany priests as a spiritual mother, sister, daughter, and friend.

The Heart of Fiat Crucified Love

 

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 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Mary Kloska is from Elkhart, Indiana. She was raised in a huge Polish family (12 brothers and sisters) along with a lot of foster babies and other needy people in and out of the house. She presently has 70+ nieces and nephews.  She has lived a very unique life. Upon graduating from Notre Dame in 1999 she spent almost 20 years in the missions serving the poor (including orphanages) as well as praying as a consecrated hermit all over the world –Siberia, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa, Philippines, Mexico, the Holy Land and all over Europe as well. Although she spent a lot of time away in silence praying, ironically she loves children and is very fun and outgoing when it comes to serving young adults, as well as the little ones. She also spent her time in the missions giving retreats, doing simple catechesis, leading prayer groups, giving spiritual direction, helping in deliverance, changing diapers, feeding babies and cleaning floors. After spending intense time serving in a mission she would withdraw for periods of ‘retreat’ as a hermit (including three years as an official diocesan hermit with vows under a Bishop.) The last few years she has spent as a fulltime nanny to infant triplets, twins and several large families. She speaks many languages (poorly) and enjoys playing guitar, painting icons, baking, gardening, reading, writing and simply filling in where there is the greatest need in the Church.

Table for Three by Larry Hopperton

Table for Three by Larry Hopperton

Private chapel

Picture someone like a pope,
an altar in prayer, servers
in robes at the feet murmur
responses robed arms raise
personal praise. We did that
at choir school for the cathedral
across the street; solfeggio, latin.
We didn’t know what it all meant
but sang recited and feet don’t
understand meditation and moments.

Table for Three: New and Selected Poems, 1982-2021

by Lawrence Hopperton

These poems, written over forty years, illustrate a spiritual landscape evolved from both secular and profane perspectives, from church windows to a handful of dirt, love and grief to redemption at the edges of our world. They invite readers into an engagement with the world – an engagement both thoroughly spiritual and sensuous. Personal experiences and associations become anchorage on this journey with the spirit of God (Spiritus Dei) and the spirit of creation (Spiritus Mundi).

TESTIMONIALS

“The spirit dwells among us in the people we love, in the things we do, and in the places we hold dear. There are numerous memorable poems in Table for Three such as “Twenty-four Line Loaf,” “Ordinary Sunday,” and “Barra.” Hopperton proves that love endures in the face of loss and joy prevails against the challenges of sadness. In a voice that balances both the secular and the liturgical, this book presents a compendium of song, praise, celebration, and poetry where the poet comes to grips with grief and how the spirit triumphs. Table for Three is an inspiration.” – Bruce Meyer is author of over 60 books of poetry, short fiction, and literary criticism. His most recent book, releasing in April, 2021, is Grace of Falling Stars

 “So moving. It’s like sacred readings.”  former Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs and Academic Dean of Tyndale Seminary, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
