Book 11

Free sample

This new concise Butler?s provides an essay on one saint for each day of the month, using the twelve-volume full edition of Butler?s Lives of the Saints as a source. Selections are made from both categories of ?Saint? and ?Blessed??canonized and beatified, allowing for the increasing proportion of women and of new- and third-world holy people. Completely rewritten in a popular style, this volume also has more ?spiritual? appeal than the full edition. A prayer and intercessory reflection is included after each entry, which lend themselves to family or small-group meditation as well as to individual devotion. The volume also suggests baptismal/confirmation names for the day?s commemorations or for inclusion in prayers.?They surround us; walking alongside us. They have gone before us; calling us forward. A great cloud of witnesses: the saints, and those called ?blessed.? Pondering the new concise edition of Butler?s Lives of the Saints day by day, week by week, season by season, we participate more fully in the grand communion of these friends of God and prophets and, together with them, share in the divine life?even now.? Michael Downey, Editor The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality

Let Heaven Touch Your Everyday Life

Nancy Ravenhill was just five years old, hiding in her bedroom after being beaten by her father, when she first saw Jesus. He was wearing white; His eyes were filled with love.

In Nancy's earliest traumatic moment, Jesus showed up. Literally. It was the first of a lifetime of encounters that have shaped Nancy's life and faith.

Here, Nancy shares the remarkable stories of her experiences with the living Christ. Her stories will leave you astounded--and inspired--by the God who still reaches out to comfort His children today.

If you've ever wondered if Jesus is really there--or if He cares about you and knows what you're going through--this book is for you.

The living Lord who has appeared and spoken to Nancy again and again is alive and well. He wants to speak to you, too.

"What a delight to hold in your hands a book from a woman of God who loves and lives the Word of God. Want to be touched by heaven? Then read this book!"--James W. Goll, president, Encounters Network; international director, Prayer Storm; bestselling author

"This is a truly remarkable book. God will become more alive and real to you as you follow Nancy on her fascinating, enlightening journey."--Joy Dawson, international Bible teacher and bestselling author

"I highly recommend Touched by Heaven because, no matter where you are in life, there is always hope that God and all He has created are there to help you."--John Paul Jackson, Streams Ministries International

"Touched by Heaven was captivating and kept my attention from the moment I began to read it. This book will bring life and raise a renewed expectation in the Lord and His providential plans for each of us."--Doug Stringer, founder and president, Turning Point Ministries International, Somebody Cares International
Para el padre James Martin, SJ los Santos ¡son mucho más que estatuas de yeso, son amigos personales! En Mi vida con los Santos James Martin nos presenta una conmovedora experiencia respect a su relación con los Santos –desde María, la madre de Jesús, hasta San Francisco o la Madre Teresa− y la manera personal en la que ha side dirigido por los heroes de la Iglesia a lo largo de toda su vida.  El padre James nos presenta vívidos y encantadores relatos de los Santos más populares, permitiéndonos ver no solo su santidad, sino su humanidad. A partir de esta experiencia descubrimos la llamada y posibilidad de vivir la santidad en nuestra propia humanidad.



 James Martin has led an entirely modern life: from a lukewarm Catholic childhood, to an  education at the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to ministry as a Jesuit priest, to a busy media career in Manhattan. But at every step he has been accompanied by some surprising friends—the saints of the Catholic Church. For many, these holy men and women remain just historical figures. For Martin, they are intimate companions. “They pray for me, offer me comfort, give me examples of discipleship, and help me along the way,” he writes.

The author is both engaging and specific about the help and companionship he has received. When his pride proves trouble­some, he seeks help from Thomas Merton, the monk and writer who struggled with egotism. In sickness he turns to Thérèse of Lisieux, who knew about the boredom and self-pity that come with illness. Joan of Arc shores up his flagging courage. Aloysius Gonzaga deepens his compassion. Pope John XXIII helps him to laugh and not take life too seriously.

Martin’s inspiring, witty, and always fascinating memoir encompasses saints from the whole of Christian history— from St. Peter to Dorothy Day. His saintly friends include Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Mother Teresa, and other beloved figures. They accompany the author on a lifelong pilgrimage that includes stops in a sunlit square of a French town, a quiet retreat house on a New England beach, the gritty housing projects of inner-city Chicago, the sprawling slums of Nairobi, and a gorgeous Baroque church in Rome. This rich, vibrant, stirring narrative shows how the saints can help all of us find our way in the world.
