  • Why Do We Have to Be So Quiet in Church?

    Why Do We Have to Be So Quiet in Church?

    By Clare Simpson

    Wiggly kids may have this book in church! This fun book is meant to accompany a child to church – or sit in the pews waiting for him or her. Exploring questions young children naturally have, the answers are both educational and entertaining, such as: Why do we have to be so quiet inchurch? Does God hear me when I sing? Why do we say "Amen" at the end of everything? Does God like it when I kneel or bow my head? What does God look like? Does God remember my Baptism? Can God see me, no matter where I go or what I do? Does God see me when I do something wrong? Does God really forgive my sins?

  • Will I See My Dog In Heaven

    Will I See My Dog In Heaven

    By Fr. Jack Wintz, OFM

    A Universal Question, thoughtfully answered!

    What do you think: Will we see our cats and dogs in heaven? Does God's plan for eternity include the created nonhuman world? Franciscan friar and popular writer Father Jack Wintz brings a love for all creation and infectious enthusiasm to the serious task of exploring answers to these long-asked questions,

    In Will I See My Dog in Heaven? Father Jack admits that no one really knows what God has in mind for us in the next life. But in ten thoughtful chapters, he lines up evidence from the Scriptures, Christian tradition and liturgy, and the life and teachings of St. Francis of Assisi, that God desires all creatures (yes, including our beloved pets!) in the afterlife.

  • Will I See My Pet in Heaven?

    Will I See My Pet in Heaven?

    By Fr. Jack Wintz, OFM

    Friar Jack wants you to know: God loves and cares for all creatures, including and especially those we are closest to!

    "Today at school, one of the kids told me that only humans go to heaven," my young friend, Eva Maria said. "I almost started to cry. Is that true, FriarJack?"

    She went on, "My dog Daisy is my best friend. When I go home she jumps into my arms and licks my face. Wouldn't God want her to be with me in heaven?" Eva Marie looked at me, waiting for my answer. . .

    "We don't know everything God has planned for us in heaven," I told Eva. "But there are many good reasons for you to believe that your dog, cat, fish, hamster, snake, ferret, iguana—or any other creature that God created—will go to heaven when it dies. God has given us clues and hints in stories from the Bible and in theteachings of my favorite saint, Francis of Assisi..."

    This charming book is the children'sedition of the Paraclete bestseller, I Will See You in Heaven (more than 25,000 copies sold). It comforts and explains to children that God loves and cares for all creatures, including and especially those we are close to.

    Includes a presentation page for gift-giving.

  • Words of Light

    Words of Light

    By Padre Pio

    The world was startled in 2007 by revelations that Mother Teresa of Calcutta's spiritual life was full of serious doubts and personal suffering for nearly 50 years. The other great saint of the last half century - Padre Pio - offers similar revelations of his own in this enlightening collection of short excerpts from hisletters.

    Many books have been written on the life and works of Padre Pio, but Words of Light is not a book about what others think or say about him. Here, hespeaks for himself. If you are interested in the complexities and challenges of contemporary faith, you will benefit from these short teachings, counsels, and recollections culled from some of Padre Pio's most personal writings.

    In these letters I quickly discovered the same states of soul that were described by the great mystics. Padre Pio's own 'dark night' was in no way inferior to that described by John of the Cross, and equally the 'living flame' of his love for God dazzles the reader and allows them to catch a glimpse of another world.

  • Writing to God - Kid's Edition

    Writing to God - Kid's Edition

    By Rachel Hackenberg

    Writing to God—Kids' Edition offers guidance to kids that parents can also appreciate: It teaches them how to pray to God creatively through their pens (or pencils, or crayons).

    In 35 days, kids learn how to pray to God using their senses, reflecting on their feelings, in light of Bible verses, looking at nature, to understand the ordinary events of life, to use new words and pictures for God, and writing to God as a way to say "thank you."

    "Hackenberg's book gives children permission to experience prayer as daily conversation with God. The freshness and honesty of her own prayers and her helpful prompts invite them to find and value their ownwords as offerings to a God who wants to be in relationship with them."

  • YOUCAT by Schoenborn

    YOUCAT by Schoenborn

    YOUCAT is short for Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, which was launched on World Youth Day, 2011. Developed with the help of young Catholics and written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith. The appealing graphic format includes Questions-and-Answers, highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. What's more, YOUCAT is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so people can go deeper. It explains:

    What Catholics believe and why (doctrine) How Catholics celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments) How Catholics are to live (moral life) How they should pray (prayer and spirituality) The questions are direct and honest, even at times tough; the answers straightforward, relevant, and compelling. YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith. Illustrated.

    What Pope Benedict XVI has to say about the YOUCAT project:

    "Study this Catechism with passion and perseverance. Make a sacrifice of your time for it!

By all means continue to talk with each other about your faith." 305 pages.
