Discovering the Camino de Santiago

Third Printing Available Before Thanksgiving
(Spanish Edition ALSO Available)

"What an enjoyable, insightful, enriching journey….The beautiful universal insights and lessons in this gem help us all realize how to live a blessed pilgrimage in life’s journey too."
National Catholic Register

A month of walking
through Spain?

But no ordinary month—this was the fabled pilgrimage to the Tomb of St. James.

If Fr. Gregory Markey can do it, well, you can too. At least from your armchair.

A priest-pastor chronicles the month-long life and times of a pilgrim, in a delightful yet sober account, as he endures, and enjoys, the much-celebrated Camino de Santiago. This peaceful journey—Web-free, phone-free, and TV-free—generated an astonishing array of brief but meaty spiritual reflections. Roman Catholic Books asked Fr. Markey to put the writings into this book.

Fr. Markey did not conceal his priesthood, choosing on the contrary to wear the traditional Roman collar. And, unsurprisingly, the resulting conversation with pilgrims was serious… reflective… practical. But there was also plenty of private time along the 500-mile trail for Fr. Markey, a 41-year-old pastor of St. Mary's in Norwalk, Connecticut.

  • Dealing with discomfort, with Scripture always in mind
  • Balancing human concerns when suffering with God's purpose for you
  • The requirements of a pilgrimage, and how they bring out the best in people
  • Practical concerns, for those pondering long pilgrimages How to fit a prayer life perfectly into a pilgrimage
  • What not to bring, in your mind and in your backpack
  • The magnetic pull of Mass, even on such a trip
  • How to acquire genuine perspective and distinguish its counterfeit

Foreword by Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of Fort Wayne/South Bend, Indiana

The Dark Night of the Body

New Title

What are we supposed to "do" with the "theology of the body"?

A leading Catholic laywoman outlines the right approach--and the wrong approach

From the preface to this important new book by Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, words of comfort and advice from a noted Catholic ethicist:

"I have read with care this book by Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, and have admired, once again, qualities found in her other works: a depth of thought and clarity joined to simple style; a full understanding of substance joined to beauty of exposition...

Dr. von Hildebrand does not limit herself to diagnosis. She offers many suggestions also for therapy. I will limit myself to drawing attention to one of these: it is not Christian compassion to accept the error in which a person may have fallen. This has been a constant in the ethical tradition of the Church, expressed in St. Augustine’s famous affirmation: "interficere errorem, amare errantem." Hate the sin, love the sinner.

I wish every success to this book, for the reader will reap spiritual benefits from it."
- Carlo Cardinal Caffarra Archbishop of Bologna

Reflections from Rome

New Title

Practical Thoughts on Faith & Family

A brand new title, Reflections from Rome , by Msgr. Richard Soseman, who provides food for thought on hundreds of topics of interest to young people who are in their late teens beginning to think about how to live their faith.

“Like Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, for whose Cause of Beatification and Canonization he has labored, Monsignor Richard Soseman has sought to use modern means of communication in the service of the new evangelization. In these reflections, originally written as web logs, he draws on his experiences as a priest both in rural Illinois and in Rome to convey the truths of the Catholic faith in an accessible and appealing manner. May those who read the present collection of reflections be inspired and encouraged in their daily living of the Catholic faith.”
- Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Vatican City

Dietrich von Hildebrand and Edith Stein: Husserl's Students

New Booklet

Noted Catholic author, lecturer and philosopher Alice von Hildebrand has taken on the task of briefly profiling these two great 20th century Catholics, using as her point of reference the memoirs of each.

This, and her life as his wife, make Dietrich von Hildebrand and Edith Stein: Husserl’s Students a study like no other.

The Chapel Veil

Newly Reissued

Fifty years ago almost every Catholic woman and girl owned a chapel veil.

Yet with their disappearance the Church lost a lovely symbol for womanhood. Elizabeth Black and Emily Sparks explain the theology, history, tradition and symbolism of the chapel veil and give today’s Catholic woman a reason to wear one once again.

A Confederacy of Evil

What did Cardinal Newman see that nobody else did, 150 years ago?

Signs of the End Times--which he recounted in four masterful sermons

In these sermons, together with an introduction by the late Fr. Vincent Miceli, S.J.--whose book, The Antichrist, remains the standard contemporary popular reference--Cardinal Newman:

  • warned about innovators within the Church who would relax not only Christian moral norms, but our forms of worship;
  • cautioned against anti-authority ideologies, which by now have overtaken virtually all of the Western world;
  • noted the developing conditions for the open denial of God and routine blaspheming of Christ
  • compared ancient ransacking of churches with prophecies of future anti-Christian rage and persecution

Diary of a Country Mother

A mother's worst fear: the death of her child. Cindy Montanaro lived that nightmare when her adopted son Tim died in 2005. Some months later she "started a year-long journey of prayer, meditation and writing. I envisioned an extended period of time in which to record, before memory failed me, all of the little humorous and profound incidents that made up my son Tim's short life."

With faith, tenderness, and humor, Cindy Montanaro's deft hand brings to life the delight and tragedy of Tim's time on earth. "Tim saw Christ's image in everyone he met, not with a conscious vision, but with the instinct of the heart."

"I really, really enjoyed this book and finished it with my soul filled with more joy and confidence in the Lord than when I began reading it."

Dachau: Christ the Victor

New Title

$5.95 Booklet, based upon our hardcover book by Fr. John Lenz, CHRIST IN DACHAU

This booklet summarizes the contents of an extraordinary book by Dachau survivor Fr. John Lenz. When the book was first published, Archbishop Michael Buchberger of Germany said:

“I have just been reading Christ in Dachau—the most shattering, but at the same time uplifting book I have read in my life. This book proves to us that the spirit of Faith and Love and the readiness to make the supreme sacrifice which inspired the early Christians is still alive today, among both priests and laity."

Christ in Dachau

Forgotten Priests in a Nazi Hellhole

Dachau concentration camp held the largest number of Catholic priests—more than 2400—in the Nazi camp system. They came from two dozen countries, from every background—parish priests and prelates, monks and friars, teachers and missionaries. Over one-third were killed.

Among the survivors was Fr. Johannes Lenz, who was asked by his superiors to write an account of what he saw. This book was the stunning result. An immediate sensation, it was quickly translated into English, French, Spanish and Italian. Catholic reviewers and churchmen alike were awestruck.

Common fallacies about Purgatory are cleared up in a book that liberated many a struggling Catholic half a century ago. In 1949, this English translation of Fr. Martin Jugie’s acclaimed book -- which had gone through seven editions in France -- was greeted as a much-needed corrective to popular fallacies about Purgatory, many of which continue to cloud the faith of good Catholics. Chief among those fallacies, writes Fr. Jugie, is that Purgatory is kind of “temporary” Hell, its pains differing only in duration. From this follows many other errors that can lead us seriously astray in our conduct and in our prayer lives.
