Crossroads Unique Selection

 

(free shipping available--no sales tax outside of Texas)

There are thousands of Roman Catholic Books on the market today.  We can, of course, offer only a selection of these books.  But it is a very special selection indeed!  First, of course, if they are to be truly Roman Catholic books, the content has to be fully compatible with the official teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.  But there are lots of books that are doctrinally sound yet seldom read simply because they are dense and unapproachable, written in dull style that makes reading them an arduous act of penance!

 

Penance is a good thing, but you won't find books like that at the Crossroads Initiative!  The Catholic books we have chosen, by Dr. Marcellino D'AmbrosioDr. Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Matt Pinto and many others, are all delightful, inspiring reads!  These Catholic books for teens and adults are written in a language that is easy to understand, and filled with humor, stories, and examples that make their spiritual teaching easy to grasp and natural to apply to real life.  Our Catholic books are also divided up into small chapters and subchapters for busy people on the go who can only read modest bits at a time before they are suddenly called to run off to work or drive a child to a sporting event.  Our study guides accompany powerful audio-video resources in a way that turns a CD or DVD into a very thorough Catholic bible study on a given topic, complete with references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, discussion questions, and ideas for personal application and spiritual exercises.

 

If there are any Roman Catholic books not included in our online Catholic bookstore that you think are great for faith formation, religious education, lectio divina, or spiritual reading that we should carry, please contact us at info@crossroadsinitiative.com.

 Ear of the Heart

Ear of the Heart


"Listen and attend with the ear of your heart." - Saint Benedict.
Dolores Hart stunned Hollywood in 1963, when after ten highly successful feature films, she chose to enter a contemplative monastery. Now, fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her life. Dolores was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount's 1957 Loving You. She acted in nine more movies with other big stars such as Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Myrna Loy. She also gave a Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway play The Pleasure of His Company and appeared in television shows, including The Virginian and Playhouse 90. An important chapter in her life occurred while playing Saint Clare in the movie Francis of Assisi, which was filmed on location in Italy.
She entered the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, at the peak of her career, not in order to leave the glamorous world of acting she had dreamed of since childhood, but in order to answer a mysterious call she heard with the "ear of the heart". She abandoned everything to become a bride of Christ.

 Living the Rosary

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.
