Saint for the Third Millennium St Therese of Lisieux (F)

Connor Charles P Fr.
In stock
Through spiritual childhood one experiences that everything comes from God, returns to Him, and abides in Him, for the salvation of all, in a mystery of merciful love. Such is the doctrinal message taught and lived by Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. After having thus turned the spotlight on the spiritual message of the Little Flower, Pope John Paul II solemnly declared her a Doctor of the Church at a Youth Day Rally in Paris, France, on Mission Sunday, October 19, 1997. Probably one of the best known and certainly one of the best loved of all the Saints in the Roman Calendar, questions still remain regarding the mystery of her impact on the modern world. Who was she? What exactly was her message? How did she embody the doctrine that she taught? What does she have to say to us that would make us call her: The Saint for the Third Millennium? In his well-researched, inimitable and highly readable style, Father Connor sheds new insights into the life and message of this great saint who has much ..

Oscar Romero

Beck Fr Ashley
In stock
Gunned down while saying Mass at the height of political and social unrest in El Salvador, Oscar Romero has remained a controversial and often misunderstood figure. Fr Beck shows how he was not martyred for political activism, or simply for being 'on the side of the poor', but for his faithfulness to Christ and his Church. Romero's impressive body of teaching, his own personal holiness, and sufferings, are thoroughly explored here, and clearly illustrate what - as Pope Benedict has said - 'an important witness to the faith' he truly was...

Thomas Becket

Midgley, J B
In stock
This fascinating account of one of England's best know saints reaches beyond the rise to power of a privileged and intelligent man, to reveal a story of holiness, suffering and courage. Set in turbulent and changing times, the forces of religious freedom and unchecked political power inevitably and fatally clash - in the persons of the King and Archbishop. 'Our crime' said Becket,'is the assertion of ecclesiastical liberty; for to profess it is to be guilty of high treason.'..
