  • All God's Angels

    By Martin Shannon, CJ

    There is an entire realm of divine activity that human eyes cannotperceive—at least not without God's unveiling grace. The angels belong to this invisible world.

    Fr. Martin Shannon, CJ, pulls back the veil between heaven and earth with biblical stories, meditations, and sacred art on the role of heavenly messengers and their work in our lives. Angels are servants of love, doing God's bidding with a theology of burning love. God seeks out his servants, and once he has our attention, he draws us closer, long enough for the sparks of his glory to reach us and ignite a flame in our own souls. This is the work of angels.

    This book is a series of reflections on the angelic visitations that are recorded in the Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments. Each entry includes a Scripture reading, an artistic image, a reflection and questions for consideration or discussion.

    "What a beautiful, beautiful book this is. We modern readers are materialists, mostly, and we tend to minimize the role of angels or metally edit them out of the biblical scenes. Martin Shannon restores these powerful messengers and helpers to their place in all the Scriptures and in all our lives."
    —Mike Aquilina, author of Angels of God: The Bible, the Church and the Heavenly Hosts

    "This book explores a subject that's usually too much for words—from the realm of the unseen, the invisible, as we affirm in the creed. But Shannon achieves a sparkling kind of clarity and inspiration. I suggest you not begin to read this book unless you arewilling to believe."
    —Jon M. Sweeney, author of The Complete Francis of Assisi and The Pope Who Quit

  • A Child Shall Lead Them

    In the village of Medjugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovina, six teenagers - two boys and four girls - began to report seeing visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the summer of 1981. Since then, millions of people have made pilgrimages to this remote mountain village, where the messages of Mary give hope and comfort to those who are needy, suffering, or searching.

    "After nearly 24 years of daily appearances to these children - all of whom are now adults, married and with children of their own - the fruits of conversion continue to serve as a testament to their initial claim," writes Weible. "Not surprisingly, the most dramatic of these conversions are those of young people, beginning with the visionaries themselves." 

    A Child Shall Lead Them is a collection of such stories and anecdotes from Medjugorje. They cover a full range of emotions, trials, and miracles; from heartbreak to intense happiness. In all of them there is solid proof of what happens when a heart is converted to that of a child: a return to innocence, and an openness and receptivity to faith. Each chapter ends with a monthly message given by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Medjugorje.

  • Paul's Prayers: A Mother’s Account of Raising an Autistic Son

    Recipient of the Catholic Writers Guild 2018 Seal of Approval “A journey of compassion, frustration, and triumph . . . Anderson’s love for her son marks this beautiful portrait of family and faith.” —Publishers Weekly Paul's Prayers is the story of a moderately autistic young man navigating life with a spiritual intelligence that runs further than most people can walk. Written by Paul's mother, this insightful memoir gives readers a unique look at the challenges and joys of raising her autistic son in a large Catholic family. The first of six children, Paul's early years were an exciting and confusing time for his parents. At the time, very little information on autism and its early signs was available, and the fact that the disorder is a spectrum ranging from mild to severe was not widely known. Unpredictable outbursts and sensitivities to light and schedule disruptions lead Paul's parents to refer to his condition as "The Marauder." The Marauder sweeps over the hospital nursery as the fluorescent lights blind Paul's eyes. The Marauder throws his black cape over the Christmas holidays, stealing four-year-old Paul's speech for three long days. In school, The Marauder keeps other students at bay, leaving Paul isolated and alone. Finally a developmental assessment gives some clarity to the exhausted family: Paul is on the autism spectrum, and they will all have to adjust their perspectives. Small victories emerge as Paul begins to reach developmental milestones in creative ways. Six years of piano lessons lead to a dramatic improvement in reading skills. A jaunt through the mountains with his father introduces Paul to his talent for running; with his brothers, he joins the high school cross country running team, which goes on to win the state championship. After high school, Paul works for the family business and attends college. Throughout this intimate memoir, every day is a challenge to be met with creative thinking, patience, and faith. Paul finds comfort in contemplative prayer and the support of his family when the world around him becomes too chaotic. As her son grows up, Susan Anderson learns how to cope with autism and embrace the importance of faith in the things unseen. Her family's experience is a beacon of light for those who find themselves on a similar path.
