The annual Lenten pilgrimage to dozens of Rome's most striking churches is a sacred tradition dating back almost two millennia, to the earliest days of Christianity. In Roman Pilgrimage, bestselling theologian and papal biographer George Weigel, art historian Elizabeth Lev, and photographer Stephen Weigel lead readers through this unique religious and aesthetic journey with magnificent photographs and revealing commentaries on the pilgrimage's liturgies, art, and architecture. Through reflections on each day's readings about faith and doubt, heroism and weakness, self-examination and conversion, sin and grace, Rome's familiar sites take on a new resonance.

Best-selling poet and essayist Kathleen Norris (The Cloister Walk) and illustrator Tomie de Paola (Strega Nona, The Clown of God) present the story of St. Benedict, father of Western monasticism, and his twin sister, St. Scholastica. De Paola's beautiful art illuminates the text almost in the manner of a medieval manuscript, bringing to life the childhood and personalities of these two saints, their path to religious life, the miracles they performed and their lifelong devotion to God.

The second Catholic edition of the Ignatius Revised Standard Version is widely regarded as the best available English translation of the Bible, avoiding tendentious translations which cater to cultural fads, and using contemporary English without losing the beauty of the RSV. Re-designed and newly typeset with 9 point font size, wider margins and improved line-spacing for comfortable reading. The RSV, second Catholic edition is the only Bible translation that uses standard (non-feminist) English and conforms to the Church's translation guidelines found in the Vatican document Liturgiam Authenticam. Nine reference maps in color. 6" x 9." There is also a leather-bound edition with gold edging.

First published in 1920, this profound book continues to change lives today. Fr. Sertillanges, a French Dominican, exhorts those with an intellectual vocation to take it with the full seriousness and commitment it deserves. Writing with an integrated Catholic understanding of the intellect, he points out the necessity of virtue for the true intellectual (since one thinks with the whole person), shows that every study is a study of eternity, etc. The book is both spiritual and eminently practical. Time management, the balance between solitude and contact with others, one's choice of reading, diet and exercise—nothing is left to chance. This will help intellectuals, students, and even artists to fulfill their vocations and avoid the pitfalls of pride and sloth that keep so many in mediocrity.

Based on Robert Bolt's famous play, this 1966 movie starring Paul Scofield portrays the life and martyrdom of St. Thomas More, who refused to recognize Henry VIII's right to divorce Catherine of Aragon and rejected Henry's claim to be head of the Church in England. This is a superb portrayal of England in the early sixteenth century and an extraordinarily accurate portrayal of the issues of Faith and conscience which King Henry so thoroughly abused. Since he first saw the film at the age of eighteen, this has been Jeff Mirus' favorite movie—by a Tudor country mile. Rated G. Special edition DVD (also available to stream). 120 min.

When you light the candle, the black screen reveals the image of the guardian angel—an effective symbol of spiritual realities which we perceive only in the light of God. Our guardian angels are assigned to us by God to watch over us and protect us from anything that will separate us from Him. If we pray to them and cooperate with them, they can do a great deal for us. 6.5 x 4.9 x 2.3 inches.
The most widely read and translated devotional book in history next to the Bible itself. Countless saints from St. Thomas More to St. Thérèse of Lisieux to St. Ignatius of Loyola have sworn by it. If you really wish to die to yourself so that Christ can live in you, this book will be a very great help. Amazon offers the well-regarded Ronald Knox and Michael Oakley translation only as an ebook; also recommended is the Challoner translation which Fr. Knox himself read in his youth.

The most famous jazz album ever made, and rightly so. The Catholic life involves finding freedom within structure. So does jazz. Melodic and contemplative, this album, released in 1959, is and will be regarded in centuries to come as one of the single greatest products of American culture. And pianist Bill Evans's liner notes provide perhaps the most profound concise summary of the spirit of jazz improvisation yet written. Audio CD and MP3.

The Way of Beauty: Liturgy, Education, and Inspiration for Family, School, and College (David Clayton)
Artist David Clayton "describes how a true Catholic education is both a program of liturgical catechesis and an inculturation that aims for the supernatural transformation of the person so that he can in turn transfigure the whole culture through the divine beauty of his daily action." Training in beauty is of profound importance for the Christian life and its recovery is a prerequisite for Christian renewal. This book is especially for artists and educators of all kinds.
