Total Consecration Through the Mysteries

Author: Fr. Ed Broom OMV
Publisher: Sophia Institute Press
ISBN: 9781622824502
Release Date: 2017
Genre: Religion

In his 18th century masterpiece, True Devotion to Mary, St. Louis de Montfort tells us that the quickest, easiest, and most efficacious path to Jesus is through the Blessed Virgin Mary. In her 1917 appearances at Fatima, Mary repeatedly urged us to pray the Rosary daily. Since Mary is the best path to Jesus and since she herself insists on daily recitation of the Rosary, Fr. Ed Broom has developed this powerful do-it-yourself retreat that culminates in the total consecration to Jesus through Mary by focusing on the Mysteries of the Rosary and the Seven Sorrows of Mary – and all it takes is a few moments each day! For years Fr. Ed Broom has transformed lives by leading this five-week retreat in Southern California. Now, for the very first time, that retreat is available in book form for those who cannot attend one of Father’s retreats in person. Here you’ll find the entire retreat program to bring you closer to Our Lady and to Our Lord: Scripture readings keyed to each Rosary decade, Fr. Broom’s succinct meditations on each Mystery, daily prayers, and wise but practical steps to help you gain the most from each meditation as you draw daily closer to your retreat’s culmination in the fifth week: your own Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary. Why not spend the next five weeks with Fr. Broom meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary and the words of Scripture? Do so, and you’ll quickly come to appreciate as never before the beautiful prayer that is the Rosary as well as Jesus and Mary, whom you will soon know better and love more.

A Divine Mercy Resource

Author: Richard "Rick" Torretto
Publisher: iUniverse
ISBN: 1450232388
Release Date: 2010-06-10
Genre: Religion

For over twenty years, the author has researched and toured the country, giving talks, retreats, and seminars on Divine Mercy. Most of these have been given at the request of, or for, the John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, or the Life Foundation Ministries in Bernalillo, New Mexico. The author has found that many have not seriously read St. Faustina’s diary, finding it “too difficult and confusing,” since it does not follow the normal diary format. Many have attempted reading other books and found them too detailed or filled with generalities. A Divine Mercy Resource has been designed as a single resource for priests, deacons, religious instructors, and devotees of Divine Mercy. Each chapter covers one aspect of the devotion—e.g., the chaplet, the image, the novena, etc.—and is complete with full quotes and footnotes at the bottom of each page. As a vital resource, it will further an understanding of Divine Mercy and the essential devotionals associated with it, giving priests, deacons, teachers, and laity the tools to promote the message, mission and devotion to Divine Mercy.

Real Mercy

Author: Jacques Philippe
Publisher: Scepter Publishers
ISBN: 9781594172489
Release Date: 2017-01-18
Genre: Religion

In Real Mercy, Father Jacques Philippe turns his focus on mercy in this book that developed from talks given on the first three days of the Year of Mercy beginning Dec. 8, 2015. On that feast day of the Immaculate Conception, he explored how Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is an exemplar of mercy to the Church and the entire world. In a discreet but vital way she dispenses graces and favors with the compassion of a mother. His second essay on forgiveness in families hits home with everyone. No one has escaped the ill feeling and bitterness caused by strife and misunderstanding within the family, and yet the same family is intended to be the path for both earthly and eternal happiness. The author brings to light vivid examples of how lack of forgiveness causes severe damage while forgiveness heals and restores broken relationships. Finally, he uses the writings of St. Therese of Lisieux to show how trust in God’s mercy leads to extraordinary supernatural effects in one’s life and in the lives of those one touches.

Genre: Religion

Muddy paws. Cold noses. The Lord works in mysterious ways.One afternoon, Joan Wester Anderson came across the story of a woman who believed she had been protected by an "angel" dog. An angel dog? Nonsense, thought Anderson. But the more she thought about it, the more she realized that perhaps she was putting limits on how God ought to act. If God is the God of everything, can't he use anything-even a dog-to help people in their time of need?Angelic Tails is a collection of true stories from ordinary people who believe that God has graced their lives through heavenly canine companions. Each of the 30 stories challenges readers to reconsider their conception of angels-just as Anderson did after asking the Holy Spirit for discernment on the matter.In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this book is unmistakable evidence that God can use four furry legs and a wagging tail to fulfill his purposes in our world.
