  • My Confirmation Book

    My Confirmation Book

    By Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle"Too often we whisk our youth through the Sacrament without a clear understanding of what's happening. That's tragic, because a grace misunderstood is easily unappreciated, and a grace unappreciated is easily lost. My Confirmation Book empowers young people to receive the Holy Spirit in a way that's active, personal, willing, and enduring. Highly recommended."
    -Mike Aquilina, host of "Sonrise Morning Show" on EWTN, and Executive Vice-President of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology

    "My Confirmation Book is the perfect gift for any Confirmand. Full of inspiration and wisdom, each chapter poses a thought-provoking scenario to help bring the various gifts of the Holy Spirit to life. Donna-Marie's book will be my present of choice for the special teens in my lifepreparing to receive this beautiful sacrament." -Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of CatholicMom.com and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms

    "A wonderful tool for parents, religious education leaders, and all who are concerned about raising up strong young Catholics _Catholics who will be able to boldly and joyfully proclaim their faith and engage a culture so in need of God."
    -Teresa Tomeo, Catholic syndicated talk show host, Ave Maria Radio

    "Another winner from Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle! Clear, concise, and inspiring - everything Confirmation candidates could want in a book that will help them prepare for one of the important moments in their Livers ! A great resource for parents and catechists, too. Kudos on a job well done!"
    Marge Fenelon, Author, Columnist and Speaker.

    "Donna-Marie CooperO'Boyle has created a resource of great simplicity and beauty for young confirmands. Tenderly and wisely written, My Confirmation explains and explores the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. Concise, but powerful, the text includes illuminating stories and discussion questions, and a superb collection of brief quotes from saints and sacred scripture. I am eager to buy an armload of copies, not only for all the young people I know who are preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation, but for those who have already received it. In fact, I found so much encouragement andclarity in the pages of this small book of reflections; I'm going to give them to my adult friends, as well."
    Lisa Mladinich, author Be an Amazing Catechist: Inspire the Faith of Children, OSV

    Part keepsake, part teaching book, this small volume is filled with inspiration, encouragement, and reflections to ponder for 4th graders and up. Through simple text, it explains the privileges and responsibilities imparted through the sacrament of Confirmation. Compelling stories about saints and children their own age will help kids become more familiar with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and learn how the gifts can be active in their own lives. The apostolic mission of a confirmed Catholic is emphasized and readers are reminded that the sacrament of Confirmation isexciting—the same Holy Spirit who appeared to theapostles and the Blessed Mother at Pentecost is the one who will come to them when they are confirmed.

  • Our Lady Came to Fatima by Hume

    Our Lady Came to Fatima by Hume

    Who would have thought that the Blessed Mother would choose to come to Fatima, that remote farming village on a rocky slope in Portugal? No one was more surprised than Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco, the little shepherds to whom she appeared in 1917.
    In this 27th volume of the acclaimed Vision Books series for youth, readers will be enthralled by the story of the village and its people, of the scornful neighbors and the puzzled parents. Above all, it is a warm story of three little ones who insisted that Our Lady had indeed come to Fatima, and from whose faith grew one of the greatest spiritual movements of our time. Illustrated. 190 pages.

  • Our Lady of Kibeho, Immaculee Ilibagiza (signed-softcover)

    Our Lady of Kibeho, Immaculee Ilibagiza (signed-softcover)

    Thirteen years before the bloody 1994 genocide that swept across Rwanda and left more than a million people dead, the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ appeared to eight young people in the remote village of Kibeho. Through these visionaries, Mary and Jesus warned of the looming holocaust, which (they assured) could be averted if Rwandans opened their hearts to God and embraced His love. Mary also sent messages to government and church leaders to instruct them how to end the ethnic hatred simmering in their country. She warned them that Rwanda would become a river of blood and land of unspeakable carnage if the hatred of the people was not quickly quelled by love. Some leaders listened, but very few believed. The prophetic and apocalyptic warnings tragically came true during 100 horrifying days of savage bloodletting and mass murder. Much like what happened at similar sites such as Fatima and Lourdes, the messengers of Kibeho were at first mocked and disbelieved. But as miracle after miracle occurred in the tiny village, tens of thousands of Rwandans journeyed to Kibeho to behold the apparitions. After the genocide, and two decades of rigorous investigation, Our Lady of Kibeho became the first and only Vatican-approved Marian (related to the Virgin Mary) site in all of Africa. But the story still remained largely unknown. Now, however, Immaculee Ilibagiza has changed all that. She has made many pilgrimages to Kibeho, both before and after the holocaust, has personally witnessed true miracles, and has spoken with a number of the visionaries themselves. What she has discovered will deeply touch your heart!

    Softcover signed by the author, Immaculee Ilibagiza, 210 pages.
