A Sword Will Pierce

by L. Blosser-Medley

L. Blosser-Medley offers her readers a love story, showing the great love Mary has for God, always saying, “God’s will be done” and doing His will, always trusting fully in Him. Our Blessed Mother became the first and most perfect follower of her Son, Jesus Christ, and through her devotion she brings us not only to him, but she also shows us our salvation through him. For this reason, and for many others, we children of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, can look to Mary for guidance on how to be true followers of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. This book helps to show us how.

The Messiah of the Metro Café

By Ronda Chervin

“This cult leader is influencing some St. Mark’s seminarians from his throne in a nearby café.”             

“I’ll take that one,” Teresa grinned enthusiastically.

And so began the conversion of Michael Kaufman.

TESTIMONIALS

“This story is a delightful witness to the wonder of the Catholic faith, the Sacraments and the Catholic priesthood.” Marti Armstrong, M.S., Pastoral Counselor
“Once again, my friend Rhonda Chervin has produced a very provocative book: The Messiah of Metro Cafe.  It is both historical and contemporary at the same time. I highly recommend this book as a source of enlightenment to all readers.” – Robert Sizemore, Retired Sociology Professor
“Another wonderful creation by the insightful writer-philosopher Ronda Chervin. Her realistic characters use dialogue to explore important ideas and move the narrative as Dostoyevsky does. Thus, Dr. Chervin evangelizes through literature.” – Kathy Campitelli – Art Teacher
“Readers, this is a page turner.  Ronda Chervin’s writing style flourishes with personal little details to help the reader identify with each person you meet as you read this little gem. The kernels of wisdom introduced through the various perspectives of Michael, Teresa and the seminarians add sparkle to the discussions. Anyone interested in the struggles of religious life is certainly going to encounter provocative discussion points to ponder and discuss with friends. Love the Metro Café’s description and setting, detailed by strong visible adjectives.  Ronda Chervin’s gift for exposition works beautifully as she creates settings for the weekly meetings. The reader can pick up hints by studying the author’s talents for developing character, dialogue, plot, setting and intriguing details so readers feel part of the story!” – David E. Dowd, Catholic Street Preachers, Poet-Pro Life Activist, Erstwhile Free Lance Writer

True Love: 12 Christmas Stories, My True Love Gave to Me

by Ben Bongers

Let’s face it, life is messy and so are emotions. But, as Hellen Keller said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” This book was written with love, for someone the author loves, and who loves him in return. The twelve stories contain every emotion that we feel daily, but we’re too afraid to let out. They are offered in the hope that readers will give themselves permission to really feel. To laugh, to hope, and yes… to cry. What better time of life than the Holidays to open that little door to our hearts that we slam shut and lock most of the time.

TESTIMONIALS

“CLEVER is the best word to describe Ben Bongers’ latest work True Love. The characters are well-defined and at the same time, intricately intertwined. You’ll never see around the corners Ben guides you through, but be sure to carry some tissues on this journey. Past and present come together in this heart-warming Christmas trip; it is not to be missed. God bless us, every one!” – Melissa Mader-Schaefer

True Love is a wonderful set of twelve stories that stick to your thoughts and hit you in the heart. Six geese a laying was a jewel for my imagination. Uncle Clayton and the author Ben Bongers took me on a memorable journey. Read them and see which stick in your mind and emotions.” – John Bergmann

True Love is a literary epiphany!” – Les Epstein, author Kip Divided & Sleep Cinematic: A Golem’s Quartet

True Love is a captivating read. It felt like I was seeing each story unfold before my eyes. All with a surprising and sometimes shocking twist, I felt was hard to put down.” – Courtney Boatwright, Graphic Designer, Illustrator

True Love is an uplifting collection of stories that transcend the common notion of the meaning of Christmas to embrace the best of the human condition the year ’round.” Janet Haddox

“I will never hear ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ without Ben’s inspiring stories from True Love playing through my head. Read them for Advent, or one a month throughout the year. And keep some Kleenex at hand. You’ll need it.” – Linda Ade Brand, Stage Director

“A new Christmas tradition has been born. Read this book with family around the fireplace, at bedtime, or if you simply need to be reminded of the spirit of the season. Year after year this will be at the center of many a holiday’s love and cheer.” – Dr. Erik Christianson, Ed.D.

“Witty and wise, knowing and tender, a new Christmas classic!” – Laurel Ann Winzler 

“No Sophomore slump here! In True Love, author Ben Bongers has followed up his brilliant debut novel THE SAINT NICHOLAS SOCIETY with a delightful and heartfelt take on ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ that draws one in from the very beginning. I look forward to seeing what the talented Ben Bongers will write next! Stay tuned!” – Bill McCarty

Vale of Hope

Vale of Hope

by Grace Bourget

In 15th-century Spain, a reckless youth finds himself grounded with the worst punishment he can imagine: volunteering in a leper camp. Working amongst those the world has proclaimed as dead to society, Paul finds that there is more to life than his rebellion. Will the leper maiden Iria be his salvation, or will her suffering and that of Paul’s sister, Imelda, be his downfall? The Mother of the Forsaken is their only hope.

Figures in Orbits of Symphony: Stories and Ideas

by Angelyn Spignesi Kopylec Arden

Psychological figures, which provide a way not only to self-knowledge, but also healing and growth to one’s true vocation knowing oneself and others, are not spirit or matter but communicate spirit through matter and live in matter symbolizing its connection to spirit. This book engages through exposition, narrative, and poetry the “space” from where these figures come, which Dr. Arden calls metaxy, following Plato and Simone Weil, yet including embodiment in the world.
