Fulton J. Sheen turned his voice and pen to many subjects during the course of a long and remarkable apostolate. But nothing came closer to the core of his message than bringing the life and saving words of Jesus to the problems of modern life and the modern world. In A Brief Life of Christ, Sheen employs the twin pillars of faith and reason to draw out the meaning of the life of Jesus for our times. He pointedly shows how Christ issues His challenge alike to nations, peoples, and individual souls. The final chapters on Christ’s public life, and Passion, Death, and Resurrection contain tremendous insights and provide material for a lifetime of reflection.

St Benedict was the first recorded saint to create a garden at his monastery, as a place for prayer and contemplation. His was a rose garden or ?rosary?. It was St Fiacre in 670, however, who became the first to plant a garden in honour of Our Lady, using those flowers which bore her name. This idea quickly spread with many ?Mary Gardens? being created to honour Mary. Here is an exquisitely illustrated guide to creating a Mary Garden in the home, parish, school, with an extensive guide to traditional plant names dedicated to Our Lady, their legends, use in art and in prayer and meditation.
Behind monastery walls, men of God spend their lives preparing for the passage of death. Best-selling French author Nicolas Diat sets out to find what their deaths can reveal about the greatest mystery faced by everyone – the end of life.
How to die? How to respond to our fear of death? To answer these and other questions, Diat travelled to eight European monasteries. Through extraordinary interviews with monks, he learned that their death experiences are varied and unique, with elements of peace, pain, humility, sorrow, and joy. These monks have the same fears, torments, and sorrows as everyone else, Diat discovered. What is exemplary about them is their humility and simplicity. When death approaches, and its hand reveals its strength, they are like happy and na?ve children who wait with impatience to open a gift. They have complete confidence in the mercy of God.

Christ’s Triumph Over the Darkness of the Age
Bishop Athanasius Schneider offers a candid, incisive examination of controversies raging in the Church and the most pressing issues of our times, providing clarity and hope for beleaguered Catholics. He addresses such topics as widespread doctrinal confusion, the limits of papal authority, the documents of Vatican II, the Society of St. Pius X, anti-Christian ideologies and political threats, the third secret of Fatima, the traditional Roman rite, and the Amazon Synod, among many others. Bishop Schneider says things that others won?t, fearlessly following St. Paul?s advice: ?Preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching? (2 Tim 4:2). His insights into the challenges facing Christ?s flock today are essential reading for those who are, or wish to be, alert to the signs of the times. Reminiscent of The Ratzinger Report of 1985, Christus Vincit will be a key point of reference for years to come.
