I Saw His Face is an inspiring collection of encounters with God's mercy through service. Father Michael Mitchell shares his experiences of missionary work in Mexico and Haiti, revealing how Christ's Mercy is at work among those who serve and those who are served.
We are not all called to travel far from home to serve others. You can live out the missionary dimension of your Christian vocation right now in your current state of life! In Go! 30 Meditations on How Best to Love Your Neighbor as Yourself, Fr. John Bartunek insightfully combines Bible passages and Church teaching with practical and actionable advice that you can apply to your daily life. Throughout the book, he clarifies commonly misunderstood terms like mission, apostolate, evangelization, and new evangelization.
The three books in this special collection shine a bright light on mercy, sacrifice, and kindness toward the unlovable, the outcast, and the marginalized. The connections between the works are surprising. In Mr. Blue, a 1928 novel, the main character exemplifies radical generosity by forgoing fortune for love of Lady Poverty. That same outpouring of self is found in Dorothy Day’s House of Hospitality, real-life reflections on the beginning of the Catholic Worker Movement. Finally, at the heart of St. Francis’ and Pope Francis’ teaching is that embracing poverty can lead to healing and restoration in a broken world. Three important works all Catholics should read.

Sheen brilliantly examines the vast differences between the benefits of psychotherapy and true confession that leads to conversion. While one may help the patient gain some peace of mind, the Christian gains something far greater through the grace of Confession: peace of soul.

Completed in 1881 by an aged French priest, this remarkable book surfaced long enough to draw Therese of Lisieux into the convent and then, for more than a century, plunged back into obscurity.
Now we offer you the very first English translation of this hope-filled, chilling work.
The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life: let it show you how to read the signs of the times and prepare you to bear yourself as a Christian (as it did Therese) . . . no matter what the future holds!
Conversion. The word is often associated with a one-time event, such as the call of Saint Matthew. But even for Matthew, that call was only the beginning, the moment when he started following Jesus. For Matthew, as for all the saints, his conversion lasted a lifetime. Real conversion — repentance and turning toward God — is a process that happens daily. It is our continual "yes" to the Lord and the grace he offers us.
