Saynt Lachmi

Saynt Lachmi

Saynt Lachmi

A young street child named Lachmi is whisked into prostitution, rescued, and led by her spirit and providence through the use of her extraordinary gifts to the brink of sainthood. The body, she shows us, is a prism, revealing through its gradations the range between depravity and divinity. What the reader sees through Lachmi is a view of this prism through the side that reveals our divinity, that sees the body as a channel of grace in the manner in which St. John Paul II described in his Theology of the Body, a manner that sanctifies our sexuality, which we so often allow our lust to soil and obliterate.

The Guest of Night

Three teenagers are drawn into the hidden underside of Elizabethan England: a world where how you pray can get you hanged, and misplaced trust can kill.  Catholicism is forbidden in this world, and Catholics walk the line between faith and fear. Protestant Stephen distrusts treacherous Papists but values his friendship with Catholic Hugh; Hugh and Bridget resent Protestant tyranny but find themselves relying on Stephen’s help – and his silence.  All of them understand both less and more than their parents realize of the dangers hovering on the margins of their lives.  And this is the kind of volatile mix that can put nooses round necks.

Paperback: $19.95 / £14.59 |  Kindle: $9.99 / £7.31

La Redención de San Isidro: Una historia de misericordia y amor

by Padre Lorenzo Eduardo Tucker, SOLT

—¿Eres un SACERDOTE? —gruñó el hombre feroz— ¡cuando la ira al rojo vivo se filtraba por cada poro de su cuerpo macizo como una roca!—

Y así, comienza el fascinante diario misionero del Padre John Landon, miembro de una nueva comunidad misionera llamada: Los Misioneros de Santa María y Las Tres Divinas Personas, con sede en Las Cruces, Nuevo México, que ilustra al lector de una manera muy poderosa y concisa, la dinámica espiritual esencial del trabajo misionero: es ¡todo sobre el Espíritu!

Libro en Rústica $14.95 | Kindle $9.99

TESTIMONIOS

“¡Una aventura que te lleva al borde de tu asiento en el Espíritu Santo desde las primeras líneas! ¡Una historia que te involucrará desde principio a fin!” – Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, O. P., autor de: “La espiritualidad narrativa de la Divina Comedia de Dante”

“Un sueño de un libro sobre el poder del bien en presencia del mal.” – Annie Monaghan, asesora principal de políticas (jubilada), oficina del viceprimer ministro, Londres, Reino Unido

La Redención de San Isidro es una mirada encantadora, inspiradora y única sobre la relación entre la verdadera Iglesia Católica y la población asolada por el crimen en partes de México. La novela narra cómo un sacerdote misionero y su equipo superan años de corrupción en un pueblo de México con la ayuda de buenos católicos que se enfrentan a los problemas de un párroco adicto al juego. Me recuerda al famoso best-seller y la película: “El pequeño mundo de Don Camillo” sobre un sacerdote y un alcalde comunista en Italia, después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Esta brillante novela del P. Larry Tucker, SOLT, quien hizo obra misional en México, nos da lo que necesitamos para ver la crisis descrita en los documentos de la Iglesia con una luz fresca y esperanzadora.” – Ronda Chervin, Ph. D., profesora emérita de filosofía en el Holy Apostles College and Seminary, escritora y presentadora de radio y televisión católica.

PREGUNTAS DE ESTUDIO PARA ESTUDIANTES

Mientras leen esta novela, los estudiantes católicos pueden reflexionar sobre las siguientes preguntas para debatir. Tenga en cuenta que las siguientes son solo algunas de las preguntas que se abordan en esta intrigante historia llena de acción que tiene lugar en el misterioso y vasto desierto de Chihuahua, al norte de México. Los estudiantes sacarán a la luz a otros mientras, se involucran en el libro:

  • Cuando el hombre hace un mal uso de su libre albedrío y ocasiona graves daños al mundo que lo rodea, ¿responde Dios de otra manera que no sea el ejercicio de su voluntad permisiva?
  • ¿No es Dios también libre de ejercer su amor en el mundo?
  • ¿Es Dios pasivo ante las debilidades y sufrimientos de sus hijos?
  • ¿Dios simplemente se sienta y ve al mundo “irse por un tubo” mientras su creación… la humanidad… contamina el medio ambiente humano y, en consecuencia, el medio ambiente natural al abrazar el mal moral?
  • La libertad humana, y el respeto de Dios por esa libertad, es un reflejo de la gran profundidad y autenticidad del amor de Dios por sus hijos. Entonces, ¿por qué el hombre actúa como si estuviera “solo”?
  • ¿Puede… debería… “hacerlo solo” para resolver el quebrantamiento dentro de sí mismo, el entorno humano y el entorno natural?
  • ¿Hay alguna esperanza para el hombre y el mundo?

“Alzo mis ojos a las colinas, de donde vendrá mi ayuda. ¡Mi ayuda viene del Señor que hizo el cielo y la tierra! ” (Salmo 121 1-2)

A Quienes El Corazón Decidió Amar

by Padre Lorenzo Eduardo Tucker, SOLT

Cuando se trata de el escandaloso problema de la pobreza global, como también la destrucción continua y suicida de nuestro ambiente natural, si una persona no es parte de la solución, lo más probable es que ese individuo forma parte del problema; indiferencia en cuanto a estos asuntos, contrario a la opinión popular, no se clasifica como una posición neutra.

Un multi-billonario llamado Benjamin Lake era completamente indiferente y parte del problema hasta el momento en que una serie de experiencias profundas le transformaron su corazón… ¡completamente! A Quienes El Corazón Decidió Amar es una historia de cómo una persona, por medio del amor misericordioso de Dios, llegó a ser parte de la solución.

Edición Rústica $14.95 | Kindle $9.99

“El protagonista del libro del Padre Tucker no nada mas te forzará a pensar sobre ti mismo pero también te motivará a pensar en el prójimo y en el amor al prójimo.” – Monseñor Richard M.

INTERVIEWS

Kevin Derby, “Conservative Leader, Educator Richard Bishirjian Focuses on Politics, Redemption in New Novel,” Florida Daily, read the interview here.

TESTIMONIALS

“In Coda, Dick Bishirjian writes with unique insight into behind the scene political maneuvering. His main character,  U.S. Senator Robert “Bob” Hill (R-PA), an educated Catholic conservative nationalist, is not worried about his up-coming re-election; indeed, he is looking beyond it to a possible run for the Presidency in 2024.  But, as Bob Hill’s wife Mary tells him, he drinks too much.  It is this weakness that threatens to destroy any future he might have in politics.  Coda is the dramatic story of his struggle to deal with his grief and alcoholism.  A mystical experience of a beautiful dancing lady in blue offers a promise of redemption and a new life.” — Joyce Corrington is author of five screenplays for theaters and a television film, The Killer Bees.

“Dick Bishirjian nails it in Coda– those familiar with the inner workings of Washington, D.C. will recognize the settings, issues, personalities, and argot of American politics. The fascinating characters Bishirjian creates in Coda are tested against a DC cauldron of special interests, back biting, and good intentions gone awry. Bishirjian’s first novel is a splendid mixture of well-researched political science and a dash of sagacious commentary all bound by an enthralling storyline of gripping literary imagination.”  — Bob Schaffer, Colorado State Senator, 1987-1996 and Member of Congress, R-CO, 1997-2003

Coda! What a novel! Bishirjian, who worked for Nixon, Goldwater and Reagan, succeeds in redeeming politics of its tawdriness to bring out the inherent drama of the power struggle of 21st Century America! At the same time, the personal story of addiction reveals how even powerful men can be surprised by Grace. Bravo, Dick Bishirjian!” — Ronda Chervin, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of Philosophy, Holy Apostles College and Seminary.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

​Dick Bishirjian’s career was shaped by the influence of William F. Buckley, Jr., Dr. Russell Kirk, and Libertarian economist, Friedrich Hayek. That led him to work on three Presidential campaigns, on the staff of a U.S. Senator, and in the Reagan Administration. He earned a Ph.D. in Government at Notre Dame.

Writing a sequel! For the story, see Dick’s website.
