Browse the USCCB Bookstore for helpful spiritual and catechetical resources. Below are some suggested titles.

  • 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.
  • The Simple Wisdom of Pope Francis: Hold on to Hope (Español)
    • 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
  • 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.
