My Beloved Son
Fr. Robert Barron offers five sermons on the spiritual discipline we must cultivate in the Lenten season, a discipline centered in Christ.

Divine Mercy Explained
This booklet provides a brief introduction to Divine Mercy. It covers the history and context of Divine Mercy, the essential elements of the devotion, and how you can live the message.


Love Hurts
Matthew Leonard focuses on the new idea of love proclaimed by Christ and how it gives meaning to human suffering. He uncovers the secret to how we can rejoice in the Lord always, no matter what happens.
The Saving Power of Divine Mercy
Pope John Paul II said that Divine Mercy is THE message for the third millennium and God's gift to our time. There is nothing that mankind needs more than Christ's Divine Mercy. Fr. Brooks focuses on what we know of God's Mercy, our response to His Love, how we can become merciful to others, and how to become apostles of mercy.
