 Living the Rosary

Living the Rosary


The Rosary, often called “the Gospel in miniature,” is both explained and meditated upon by Rev. John Phalen, C.S.C., president of Holy Cross Family Ministries and one of today’s leading Rosary evangelists.
Living the Rosary: Finding Your Life in the Mysteries situates each of the twenty “mysteries” of the life of Jesus within both biblical and modern stories of conversion and spiritual growth. Beginning with his own vocation story (an example of “annunciation”), Phalen offers twenty different stories—some scriptural, some personal, all of them practical—that will help readers better understand and live each mystery of the Rosary.

 Ear of the Heart

Ear of the Heart


"Listen and attend with the ear of your heart." - Saint Benedict.
Dolores Hart stunned Hollywood in 1963, when after ten highly successful feature films, she chose to enter a contemplative monastery. Now, fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her life. Dolores was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount's 1957 Loving You. She acted in nine more movies with other big stars such as Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Myrna Loy. She also gave a Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway play The Pleasure of His Company and appeared in television shows, including The Virginian and Playhouse 90. An important chapter in her life occurred while playing Saint Clare in the movie Francis of Assisi, which was filmed on location in Italy.
She entered the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, at the peak of her career, not in order to leave the glamorous world of acting she had dreamed of since childhood, but in order to answer a mysterious call she heard with the "ear of the heart". She abandoned everything to become a bride of Christ.

 Praise Be To You - Laudato Si

Praise Be To You - Laudato Si


A gift from God and the common home of humanity, the earth is threatened by man's abuse of his freedom. In his encyclical Praise Be to You (Laudato Si'), Pope Francis challenges all people to praise and thank God for his glorious creation and to work together to safeguard her.
Expounding the biblical tradition regarding creation and redemption in Christ, Francis stresses man's subordi­nation to God's plan. He insists on the primacy of the human person in creation and rejects treating it as if it were "divine", yet he traces the roots of the ecological crisis to man's self-centeredness and the rise of prac­tical relativism. Without rejecting political changes, he implores people to change their hearts and their ways of life.

 The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium


The Joy of the Gospel is a passionate call for every Christian to “be constantly ready to bring the love of Jesus to others.” In this apostolic exhortation, Pope Francis responds to the suggestions of the 2012 Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization by outlining a roadmap for the Church’s pastoral mission and work in the world. He envisions a Church of “Spirit-filled evangelizers” who exude joy and care for God’s people, especially the poor. Instead of retreating into our own security, he says, we must not be afraid to have our “shoes get soiled by the mud of the street.” Pope Francis warns against spiritual worldliness, disunity, and a spirit of pessimism or defeatism.

 The Marriage God Wants for You

The Marriage God Wants for You


Most people would agree that marriage today is in crisis. What is usually overlooked-even by those married in the Church-is that God intended marriage to be a sacrament. The Lord wants couples to rely on his promise to be present in their day-to-day lives, and he wants to give them the grace to live out a covenantal love that mirrors the love of the Trinity.

 Restless Heart: The Confessions of St. Augustine

Restless Heart: The Confessions of St. Augustine

Filmed in Europe, the first full-length feature movie on Augustine, it uses a historic backdrop to tell the true story of one of the Church's most beloved and well-known Saints. Its message of sin, conversion, redemption is as timely today as it was in the 5th century of Augustine. It is the story of a gifted man who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass - and the dramatic changes that occur in his soul when challenging events lead him to see the light of truth. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman world and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what became Europe. With Augustine, the stories of two other great saints, Monica and Ambrose, are also portrayed.
