Hans Urs von Balthasar
This book is a double-treat: it combines the genius of the towering theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar and his ability to make his subject come alive before the reader, along with the focus of that genius on someone with the spiritual depth and creative stature of Georges Bernanos, considered by many to be the greatest Catholic creative writer of the twentieth century. The goal of this book is to simply convey what Bernanos wanted to say as the devout Christian that he was. Bernanos was a deeply prayerful, practicing sacramental Catholic whose profound love for the Church made everything he created or wrote an "ecclesial existence that has been given form: existence derived not merely from an abstract, individual faith but from the faith of the Church." With judicious quoting of the primary source and careful juxtaposing of texts and commentary, Balthasar provides a unique forum from which Bernanos can speak to the reader in a way that he can be clearly heard and genuinely understood.

Christian Resistance to Anti-Semitism
Memories from 1940-1944 - Henri Cardinal de Lubac, S.J.
One of the world's greatest theologians contributes extraordinary documentary evidence about the role of the Catholic Church in opposing anti-semitism during the Nazi occupation of France. A key participant in France's ``spiritual Resistance'' Cardinal de Lubac reveals for the first time the facts surrounding his own clandestine activities against anti-semitism during the Nazi occupation.
He was one of the principal theologians of the clandestine Cahiers du Temoignage chretien (Notebooks of Christian Witness) which, from 1941 to 1944, allowed the voice of the Church and the persecuted to be heard. As a theologian and historian by profession, de Lubac is one of the last great figures from whom we may gather testimony about the Church's important role during the Nazi invasion.
In the process he provides fascinating portraits of some of the period's most controversial figures and a precise analysis and clarification of significant documents and events. This deeply personal memoir will surely prove to be a source of inspiration and encouragement for all who seek to live their Faith in a world of opposing values.

Forth and Abroad
Mother Mary Francis, P.C.C.
Following up her very popular book about the happiness of the contemplative life, A Right to be Merry, Mother Mary Francis tells the story of how a cloistered Poor Clare Community, wholly content to stay where it was, is called forth by God to go abroad and found five more contemplative communities. In her own charming way, she relates the story not only about the spiritual adventure of one contemplative nun, but also about the spread of the contemplative life from New Mexico to Holland.
Throughout the book she weaves spiritual themes about the call each person receives from God to venture forth into new revelations of himself made fully possible only by his consent to go beyond the confinements of his own life plan into the broader acres of God's unfolding designs.
"Mother Mary Francis offers practical wisdom, from behind cloistered walls, to those of us whose lives are filled with the distractions of a frenetic world. She reminds us that many moments of life have the potential to lead us to holiness."
-- Cardinal John O'Connor
"Penetrating insight into the spousal love and divine beauty that make up the heart of vowed contemplative life as a Poor Clare nun."
-- Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J.
Mary Francis, P.C.C., is the abbess of the Poor Clare Monastery in Roswell,
New Mexico. She is an accomplished author and writer of thirteen books, seven plays,
and numerous poems, a collection of which Summon Spirit's Cry, was published by Ignatius Press in 1996.

He Leadeth Me
by Fr. Walter Ciszek, S.J.
This is the deeply moving personal story of one man's spiritual odyssey and the unflagging faith which enabled him to survice the horrendous ordeal that wrenched his body and spirit to near collapse. Captured by the Russian army during world War II and convicted of being a "Vatican spy," American Jesuit Father Walter J. Ciszek spent some 23 agonizing years in Soviet prisons and the labor camps of Siberia. He here recalls how it was only through an utter reliance on God's will that he managed to endure. Selected reading from He Leadeth Me

A Difficult Life - Marie Baudouin-Croix
Leonie Martin was the least gifted of the four sisters of St. Thérèse of Lisieux. She was an emotionally disturbed child who suffered and caused anguish in her family. Her mother, the heroic Zelie Martin, suffered most of all. Marie Baudouin-Croix, well-known French poet, has examined Zelie's correspondence with her daughters, her sister, her brother, and her sister-in-law. We see the backward child, the despair of many, who was the first to follow Thérèse's Little Way.
It was only after three valiant but unsuccessful attempts that Leonie was finally accepted by the Visitation Order at Caen. She succeeded in conquering a ``tough'' temperament, so that by the time of her death in 1941, at the age of seventy-eight, she was regarded as a saint and the convent at Caen was inundated with letters testifying to her posthumous aid.

A Memory for Wonders
A True Story - Mother Veronica Namoyo Le Goulard, P.C.C.
Here for the first time is a captivating autobiography of a French girl raised in the wild Moroccan frontier by her communist parents who fled France and vowed that "no one would speak to her of God and influence the development of her mind with oppressive superstition." Everything in her education, environment and training was targeted toward making her a perfect product of Marxist atheism. She sucked anti-Catholicism with her mother's milk. But God had other plans for Lucette. Emotionally neglected by her parents, Lucette became a "difficult child" leading a colorful life full of mischievous adventure all the while experiencing an unutterable loneliness. But the Hound of Heaven was gently pursuing her. At the age of three, upon witnessing the overwhelming beauty of a sunset after a violent sirocco sand storm, she gained the unshakable certainty that this beauty was created, and that there was a God. She began to pray. That was the first link in a chain of remarkable events that grace alone could forge, which led her to embrace the faith and become a Poor Clare nun in Algiers.
Disowned by her parents, she put all her trust in Him for whom all things are possible. Her faith was rewarded with a dramatic answer to the prayers of her heart. Lucette, now Mother Veronica Namoyo, is an Abbess and foundress of two flourishing monasteries in Africa.
"This compelling book is bound to touch many souls, and is an eloquent testimony that grace, love, prayer and sacrifice can conquer the world, because they can conquer man's rebellious heart."

Rome Sweet Home
Our Journey to Catholicism - Scott and Kimberly Hahn
The well-known and very popular Catholic couple, Scott and Kimberly Hahn, have been constantly travelling and speaking all over North America for the last few years about their conversion to the Catholic Church. Now these two outstanding Catholic apologists tell in their own words about the incredible spiritual journey that led them to embrace Catholicism.
Scott Hahn was a Presbyterian minister, the top student in his seminary class, a brilliant Scripture scholar, and militantly anti-Catholic ... until he reluctantly began to discover that his "enemy" had all the right answers. Kimberly, also a top-notch theology student in the seminary, is the daughter of a well-known Protestant minister, and went through a tremendous "dark night of the soul" after Scott converted to Catholicism.
Their conversion story and love for the Church has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of lukewarm Catholics and brought them back into an active participation in the Church. They have also influenced countless conversions to Catholicism among their friends and others who have heard their powerful testimony.
Written with simplicity, charity, grace and wit, the Hahns' deep love and knowledge of Christ and of Scripture is evident and contagious throughout their story. Their love of truth and of neighbor is equally evident, and their theological focus on the great importance of the family, both biological and spiritual, will be a source of inspiration for all readers.
"One of the beautiful and bright-shining stars in the firmament of hope for our desperate days is this couple, the Hahns, and this story of their life and their conversion."
-- Peter Kreeft, Author, Back to Virtue
"Dynamic, fresh, and devoted are terms which describe the approach that Scott and Kimberly Hahn take to assist in the renewal of the Church in the United States. Now, with their conversion, they are admirably suited to assist Catholics in re-discovering the treasure that has been entrusted to them. My hope is that many people will benefit from contact with Scott and Kimberly Hahn through their stories of conversion."
-- Most Reverend John Myers, Bishop of Peoria

With God in Russia
Walter Ciszek, S.J.
Father Walter Ciszek, S.J., author of the best-selling He Leadeth Me, tells here the gripping, astounding story of his twenty-three years in Russian prison camps in Siberia, how he was falsely imprisoned as an "American spy", the incredible rigors of daily life as a prisoner, and his extraordinary faith in God and commitment to his priestly vows and vocation. He said Mass under cover, in constant danger of death. He heard confession of hundreds who could have betrayed him; he aided spiritually many who could have gained by exposing him.
This is a remarkable story of personal experience. It would be difficult to write fiction that could honestly portray the heroic patience, endurance, fortitude and complete trust in God lived by Fr. Walter Ciszek, S.J.
"A man of invincible faith and heroic fortitude, who is sustained by a great love for God and his fellow man. His story is highly recommended as a worthwhile reading experience for one and all."
-- Best Sellers
