(NEW!) Marriage: Life and Love in the Divine Plan | (Español)

Marriage is a sacrament that mirrors Christ's love for his Church, but our culture doesn't think marriage is sacramental at all.  In this book, the bishops track the progression of marriage from a natural institution to a sacramental institution that reveals true Love.  This is a good resource for all Christian people.  Available in English and Spanish.

(NEW!) The Simple Wisdom of Pope Francis: Hold on to Hope

In the first volume of this series, Pope Francis writes about simplicity and engaging the poor in daily life.  Titles available in English and Spanish.

(NEW!) The Simple Wisdom of Pope Francis: The Joy of Evangelization | (Español)

The second volume of this series builds upon Pope Francis' apostolic letter Evangelii Gaudium.  Spreading the Gospel with joy is a challenge, but Pope Francis offers practical evangelization techniques for all Christians.  Titles available in English and Spanish.

Book of Readings on the Eucharist

The Eucharist can change your life.  Use this book in conjunction with the frequent reception of the Eucharist to deepen your relationship with Christ and the Church.

Human beings are themselves considered consumer goods to be used and then discarded. We have created a “throwaway” culture which is now spreading. It is no longer simply about exploitation and oppression, but something new. Exclusion ultimately has to do with what it means to be a part of the society in which we live; those excluded are no longer society’s underside or its fringes or its disenfranchised–they are no longer even a part of it. The excluded are not the “exploited” but the outcast, the “leftovers”. -Pope Francis (11/24/13)
