  • Contemplate Scripture in Color

    Contemplate Scripture in Color

    By With Sybil MacBeth, Author of Praying in Color

    We're always looking for new ways to encounter Scripture—to go beyond the usual format of reading, reflection and questions. Many people have been rediscovering lectio divina, a way of contemplating Scripture practiced by monks since the Middle Ages. As an aid to lectio, or just a fun new way to pray with Bible verses, this book combines contemplating Scripture with coloring, helping the reader go into a sacred space where they can encounter and connect with the reading more deeply.

    This coloring book was created with the bestselling author of Praying in Color, Sybil MacBeth. Sybil writes and leads workshops about using doodling to contemplate Scripture. This book will help readers, doodlers, and colorers hear what God might be saying to them personally in a specific passage and then meditate further on it. It is a perfect way for individuals, families, and groups to learn more about this ancient practice, paired with coloring.

    "Readers of all ages, experience, andreligions will find this a fresh, invigorating and even exhilarating way to spend time with themselves and their Creator." — Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

  • Dark Night of the Soul

    Dark Night of the Soul

    By St. John of the Cross. In Dark Night of the Soul, Saint John of the Cross presents for us a portrait painted from his own experience of one who advances successfully through the struggles of the spiritual life. The dark night that St John describes is not abandonment by God but special consideration from Him for those who desire to purify and perfect their souls. With a soul purified from earthly attachments, we can advance through the much quoted but oft misunderstood dark night of the souls into unity with God. By accepting the desolation and difficulty of this process, the soul cooperates with God and opens itself to receiving and revealing more perfectly God's glory. Be not afraid- Dark Night of the Soul, though austere and exacting in its instructions for holy living, is laced with St John's charity and kindness, his love of all things beautiful and sacred- including you.

  • Dear Children - The Queen of Peace Visits Medjugorje

    Dear Children - The Queen of Peace Visits Medjugorje

    Life was simple in Medjugorje…

    People lived like they had for hundreds of years—growing crops, raising livestock, and spending time with family and friends. Heaven, though, had other plans, and the village changed forever after a group of children saw an extraordinary sight on a nearby hillside one summer afternoon.

    Throughout history, people in different parts of the world have been visited by Mary, the mother of Jesus. Still, no one expected her to visit Medjugorje, least of all the six children who would come to be known as “the visionaries.” As they would soon find out, her heavenly visits would transform their sleepy hamlet into a destination of hope and peace for people from every part of the world.

    Mary’s messages begin with the words “Dear Children,” and she wishes for every person in the world to see her as a mother. This is the true story of Medjugorje and the Queen of Peace.

    28 Pages. Hardcover. Can be autographed by the author.

    Available in either English or Croatian.

    $1 from every book sold will be donated to Mary's Meals and Mother's Village.

  • DRAGA DJECO - Kraljica Mira pohodi Međugorje

    DRAGA DJECO - Kraljica Mira pohodi Međugorje

    This is the Croatian version of Dear Children, the children's book about Medjugorje.

    Život u Međugorju je bio jednostavan...

    Ljudi su živjeli kao i tijekom proteklih stotine godina – uzgajali su usjeve, skrbili o stoci i provodili vrijeme s obitelji i prijateljima. Nebo je, međutim, imalo drugačije planove i selo se zauvijek promijenilo nakon što je skupina djece vidjela izvanredan prizor na obližnjem brdu jednoga ljetnog popodneva.

    Tijekom povijesti ljude je u različitim dijelovima svijeta pohodila Marija, Isusova majka. Ipak, nitko nije očekivao da bi ona mogla pohoditi Međugorje, a najmanje od svih to je očekivalo šestero djece koja će postati poznata kao "vidioci". Iako to nisu mogli ni zamisliti, njezin nebeski pohod će preobraziti njihov uspavani zaselak u odredište nade i mira za ljude sa svih strana svijeta.

    Marijine poruke počinju riječima "Draga djeco", a ona želi da je svaka osoba na svijetu vidi kao majku. Ovo je istinita priča o Međugorju i Kraljici Mira.

    Autographed by the author.
