Be A Man!
Becoming the Man God Created You to Be
Fr. Larry Richards
In Be a Man!, Fr. Larry Richards recounts his struggles to learn true manhood, as well as the inspiring stories of others he has served in his decades as a priest. He tells men how to focus on the right goal, how to live as a beloved son of God, of the need to acknowledge one’s faults and to live according to the Holy Spirit, to be a man of true love and of wisdom, to appreciate properly the differences between men and women, to pursue holiness, and to make a difference in the world. Not preachy but direct, Father Richards challenges men to be strong, without putting on a mask of false strength or machismo. He calls men to admit their weaknesses and limitations, while urging them to find strength in faith and genuine love to overcome their sins and faults.
The Scarlet and the Black
The True Story of Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty, Hero of the Vatican Underground
J. P. Gallagher
It has all the hallmarks of a best-selling fictional thriller: espionage, conspiracy, a struggle against evil powers, undercover work by dark of night... but it's all true. The Scarlet and the Black tells the astonishing and heroic true story of Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, the man dubbed "The Scarlet Pimpernel of the Vatican" during World War II.
The Scarlet and the Black is also available on DVD
God: The Joy of My Life
St. Teresa of the Andes
Michael Griffin, OCD
St. Teresa of the Andes, Chile’s first saint, lived in the 20th century, died at the young age of 19 yrs. old, and was canonized by Pope John Paul II. Her beautiful story and her witness of love for Christ and others is a shining light for the Church today, especially for our youth. She was a vibrant young woman who loved music, sports and had a wide circle of friends, and her story and spiritual message bears some striking resemblances to that other great young modern Carmelite saint, Therese of Lisieux. This work, written by an expert on her life and spirituality, tells her whole life story. It also includes the homilies by John Paul II at her beatification and her canonization, as well as her own Spiritual Diary that reveals the profound insights of her own spiritual journey and holiness.
Charity in Truth
Pope Benedict XVI
Benedict XVI has something for everyone in Charity in Truth—from praising profit to defending the environment, from calling for a role for government in the economy to insisting on the necessity of moral transformation and “gratuitousness” in economic life, from the issue of immigration to the importance of technology. However, he also insists on discernment and the purification of our ideas by faith and reason, in order to temper any immoderate and one-sided enthusiasms.
Splendors of the Magnificat
A stunning art book with audio CD to enter into the spirit of Mary’s Magnificat guided by master artists and composers. Audio CD of 11 of the most inspiring musical renditions of the Magnificat from the 13th to the 20th century.
The 13th Day
The 13th Day dramatizes the true story of three young shepherds who experienced six apparitions of Our Lady between May and October 1917, which culminated in the final prophesied Miracle of the Sun on October 13th. Abducted from their homes, thrown into prison and interrogated under the threat of death in the government’s attempt to silence them, the children remained true to their story about the crucial messages from Mary of prayer, repentance and conversion for the world. Stylistically beautiful and technically innovative, the film uses state-of-the-art digital effects to create stunning images of the visions and the final miracle that have never before been fully realized on screen.
Joseph of Nazareth
The Story of the Man Closest to Christ
The first feature film ever on the story of St. Joseph - carpenter, husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus Christ. Scripture tells us that St. Joseph was a "just man", and that God gave him the most daunting task ever asked of a man - to be the husband of the woman who would give birth to the Messiah, and the father and protector of this Holy Family, the man closest to Christ.
St. Teresa of the Andes
A beautiful, epic mini-series produced in Chile that tells the story of the inspiring life of the new young Carmelite saint who lived in the 20th century, died at the age of just 19 years old, and was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1993. St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes, known officially as “St. Teresa of the Andes”, grew up in a close-knit, upper middle class Catholic family in Santiago, Chile, was very popular with her friends and relatives, entered Carmel at age 19, and died before her 20th birthday.
Between Heaven and Earth
Based on the historical records and the personal testimony of his fellow friars, this is the amazing true story of the life of the famous stigmatic monk, St. Padre Pio, a contemporary saint who died in 1968. Blessed with incredible spiritual gifts, including healing, bi-location, reading of souls and the stigmatic wounds, Padre Pio was a powerful witness for Christ, and a great spiritual guide to countless souls for over fifty years.
Songs & Prayers to Mary
Pope Benedict XVI with the Vatican Choir
This unique and amazing new recording features Pope Benedict singing or reciting hymns and prayers to Our Lady accompanied by The Vatican Choir. His Holiness uses several languages in this recording including Latin, Italian, French, all recorded at St. Peter’s Basilica or during his Papal trips abroad. The album also features classical music by an international group of composers performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at London’s Abbey Road studios.
This is the second album by The Priests, the singing priestly trio sensation from Ireland who broke the Guinness world record last year for the fastest selling classical debut album of all time. Harmony will highlight more glorious spiritual hymns featuring their rich vocals and lovely harmonies on favorite sacred songs such as The Lord’s Prayer and Amazing Grace and more. The album was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London and The Priests are accompanied by the world famous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
A stunningly beautiful new recording by the beloved tenor, his first Christmas album ever recorded with all songs sung in English. Co-produced by legendary music producer David Foster, this will be the major new Christmas album of the season for Christmas 2009. It will also get huge publicity from Bocelli appearances on national television in the Christmas season as well as a concert tour he is doing for this new album in December.
