Discover why mercy is the mission of everyone in the Church! This is the handbook that has introduced millions of souls to the life-changing message that brings hope to a hurting world. It covers every aspect of the authentic Divine Mercy message and devotion - from the Feast and Hour of Great Mercy to the Chaplet and Novena, as well as selected prayers from the Diary of Saint Faustina.
This little volume consists chiefly of extracts from letters written solely to meet an individual need and with no thought of publication. But in the heart of every true spiritual teacher there lives the Divine Teacher, and when His voice speaks, it is for all, not for one only. Believing that it is that voice which sounds through these words, the one to whom they were ad dressed desires to prove worthy of the message of unselfishness they contain, by sharing them with all others who perhaps in pain and weariness are striving along the path of devotion. They are therefore sent forth with the earnest prayer that they may bring to the soul of every sincere devotee who reads them the same help and comfort as they brought to the one who heard them first.
Mary has been singularly hidden during her life. It is on this account that the Holy Ghost and the Church call her alma Mater,—Mother secret and hidden. Her humility was so profound that she had no propensity on earth more powerful or more unintermitting than that of hiding herself, even from herself, as well as from every other creature, so as to be known to God only. He heard her prayers to Him, when she begged to be hidden, to be humbled, and to be treated as in all respects poor and of no account. He took pleasure in hiding her from all human creatures in her conception, in her birth, in her life, and in her resurrection and assumption. Her parents even did not know her, and the Angels often asked of each other: Quæ est ista? Who is that? Because the Most High either hid her from them, or if He revealed any thing of her to them, it was nothing compared to what He kept undisclosed. Aeterna Press

This is the original ‘scrupulously faithful’ translation by Reverend Frederick William Faber, D.D.. The great Marian Pope, Blessed Pope John Paul II practiced this Devotion to Mary, in his Letter to the Montfort Fathers he says: “A work destined to become a classic of Marian spirituality was published 160 years ago. St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort wrote the Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin at the beginning of the 1700s, but the manuscript remained practically unknown for more than a century. When, almost by chance, it was at last discovered in 1842 and published in 1843, the work was an instant success, proving extraordinarily effective in spreading the “true devotion” to the Most Holy Virgin.” “My motto; ‘Totus Tuus’ is inspired by the teaching of St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. These two words express total belonging to Jesus through Mary: ‘Tuus totus ego sum, et
Much of the emerging Protestantism of the sixteenth century produced a Reformation in conscious opposition to formal philosophy. Nevertheless, sectors of the Reformation produced a spiritualizing form of Platonism in the drive for correct devotion. Out of an understandable fear of idolatry or displacement of the uniquely redemptive place of Christ, Christian piety moved away from the senses and the material world--freshly uncovered in the Reformation. This volume argues, however, that in the quest for restoring "true religion," sectors of the Protestant tradition impugned too severely the material components of prior Christian devotion. Larry Harwood argues that a similar spiritualizing tendency can be found in other Christian traditions, but that its applicability to the particulars of the Christian religion is nevertheless questionable. Moreover, in that quest of a spiritualizing Protestant "true religion," the Christian God could shade toward the conceptual god of the philosophers, with devotees construed as rationalist philosophers. Part of the paradoxical result was to propel the Protestant devotee toward a denuded worship for material worshipers of the Christian God who became flesh.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart is a powerful little booklet filled with many of the treasures to be found in the veneration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Besides containing an explanation of the symbolism found within the Image of the Sacred Heart, it also includes explanations of the 9 First Fridays devotion, known as The Great Promise, the miraculous cure of St. Gemma Galgani as well as many profound exhortations to offer reparation to the Sacred Heart. Authoritative and moving, Our Lord instituted this devotion Himself, saying: " I set neither limit nore measure to My gifts of grace for those who seek them in My heart."
Rebecca Lemon illuminates a previously-buried conception of addiction, as a form of devotion at once laudable, difficult, and extraordinary, that has been concealed by the persistent modern link of addiction to pathology. Surveying sixteenth-century invocations, she reveals how early moderns might consider themselves addicted to study, friendship, love, or God. However, she also uncovers their understanding of addiction as a form of compulsion that resonates with modern scientific definitions. Specifically, early modern medical tracts, legal rulings, and religious polemic stressed the dangers of addiction to alcohol in terms of disease, compulsion, and enslavement. Yet the relationship between these two understandings of addiction was not simply oppositional, for what unites these discourses is a shared emphasis on addiction as the overthrow of the will. Etymologically, "addiction" is a verbal contract or a pledge, and even as sixteenth-century audiences actively embraced addiction to God and love, writers warned against commitment to improper forms of addiction, and the term became increasingly associated with disease and tyranny. Examining canonical texts including Doctor Faustus, Twelfth Night, Henry IV, and Othello alongside theological, medical, imaginative, and legal writings, Lemon traces the variety of early modern addictive attachments. Although contemporary notions of addiction seem to bear little resemblance to its initial meanings, Lemon argues that the early modern period's understanding of addiction is relevant to our modern conceptions of, and debates about, the phenomenon.

Felix Santos and Mary Sawyer were childhood sweethearts growing up in Brooklyn during the nineteen forties. He helped her through rough times when her mother Alice couldn’t handle the news that her husband Lou was missing in action in Europe. When Felix turned eighteen he enlisted in the Army and was stationed in Berlin with the American occupation forces. He expected Mary to wait for him to return at which time they could wed. During his absence Mary was the victim of rape. She conceived and had no intention of telling Felix what had happened. His brother Miguel had always had passionate feelings for Mary. Although he couldn’t understand why Mary wouldn’t tell Felix about her circumstances he eagerly jumped in to marry her and had no compunctions about raising the child he thought was his brother’s. Mary’s guilt was so severe she kept Miguel at arm’s length for several years. He accepted her dictates and doted on the boy he called his son. When Mary finally realized how devoted Miguel was she happily allowed him to consummate the marriage. A much belated European honeymoon brought the couple face to face with the disconsolate Felix. Felix remained in Berlin and found a sense of purpose in helping reconstruct the devastated country. He fit in well with the citizens and was befriended by a girl named Minna. Eventually an acquaintance from Brooklyn was assigned to Berlin. David Green fell in love with Minna at first sight. The three friends spent a month’s furlough in Brooklyn where the couple married and Felix was once more set adrift. It took a lovelorn female from Felix’s past to set him straight.
Second century apocryphal Christian texts are Christian fiction: they draw on the motifs of contemporary pagan stories of romance, travel and adventure to entertain their readers, but also to explore what it means to be Christian. The Thecla episodein the Apocryphal Acts of Paul recounts the conversion of a young pagan woman, her rejection of marriage, her narrow escapes from martyrdom and the end of her story as an independent, ascetic evangelist. In Thecla's Devotion, J.D. McLarty reads the Thecla episode against a paradigm pagan romance, Callirhoe: for both texts the passions are key to the unfolding of the plot - how are unruly emotions to be managed and controlled? The pagan would answer, 'through reason'. This study uses the portrayal of emotion within character and plot to explore the response of the Thecla episode to this key question for Christian identity formation.
A devotional and liturgical resource of great beauty and depth, for daily use in public worship and private prayer.
