This little companion to private reflection will offer ready sustenance to those setting out on the joyful road to Easter.
The Early Church – Booklet
Ancient Christianity is a proven draw at the box office and the bookstores. Our neighbors are curious about the early Church, and more than willing to be obsessed by it. But how should we proceed to study ancient Christianity when the media accounts themselves have been shockingly misinformed? The key to understanding the early Church is a fresh familiarity with the ancient sources. In this booklet, you’ll encounter many of the most important figures of the first centuries of Christianity. You will read their words. You will hear their side of the story.

Prayers for expectant mothers, excerpts from Scripture, and form the saints, the Rites for Receiving Communion when sick, and Anointing the Sick are included, as is night prayer and a helpful guide to confession.
Creation and Science – Booklet
Who created the Universe? Is a creator even necessary? Can science explain how the Universe came into being without reference to a creator God? This booklet explores these ideas and the arguments that have been brought into sharp focus by Stephen Hawking’s claim that his cosmological model ‘left nothing for a creator to do’. Dr. Carroll examines the Church’s teaching on creation from Augustine and Aquinas to the present and explains why, without a creator God, science itself would not exist.

How can I be more open to my vocation, and come to a decision? It explains the Christian vocations of marriage, priesthood, consecrated life, the permanent diaconate and the single life and how you can know whether God might be calling you to one of them.
