St. Francis of Assisi -

Adolescent Rebellion Can Be Good

St. Francis of Assisi

On October 4, the Church celebrates someone whose youthful rebellion led to holiness and provoked a spiritual revolution that renewed the Church.  St. Francis of Assisi has charmed Catholics and non-Catholics alike for some 800 years now. 

Our Jesuit Pope was so inspired by him that he took his name. 

This article will help you celebrate his hero’s feast day in style!

Resources Not to Miss -

October, the month of Mary is here! Be sure to check out the incredible resources that we have below to deepen your faith and devotion. For even more, check out this page dedicated to our sales! But don't look now - ADVENT is coming quicker than you realize and this next book will go FAST!!

Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth
This creative exploration of Advent guides readers to rediscover the power of the events leading up to the birth of Christ. The four questions of Luke 1, as posed by Zechariah, Mary, Elizabeth, and the people in the Temple, spur readers to personal reflection on disappointment, inadequacy, openness, and trust.
In this fresh, new contemplative Advent companion, Timothy Clayton deftly shows how Luke composed this first chapter of his gospel to deepen understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditation on the questions posed by its main characters can help resolve issues that hinder the joy of Christmas. Designed to be used on a weekly basis through Advent and during the Twelve Days of Christmas, this reflective guide is ideal for individual and small-group use. Clayton's insight is reminiscent of Henri Nouwen or Thomas Merton and brings the story of Christ's birth to life anew.

Living the Rosary
The Rosary, often called “the Gospel in miniature,” is both explained and meditated upon by Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., president of Holy Cross Family Ministries and one of today’s leading Rosary evangelists.
Living the Rosary: Finding Your Life in the Mysteries situates each of the twenty “mysteries” of the life of Jesus within both biblical and modern stories of conversion and spiritual growth. Beginning with his own vocation story (an example of “annunciation”), Phalen offers twenty different stories—some scriptural, some personal, all of them practical—that will help readers better understand and live each mystery of the Rosary.
