Staff Pick: Fatima Mysteries

51t8VLXor9LThis fascinating book by Gazegorz Gorny not only gives a history of the Fatima apparitions, but adds much insight into how they tie into the events of the 20th century including Nazism, World War II, the Cold War, atheism and their continued relevance today.

 

“This is a very special book on the whole story, messages and meaning of Fatima. It is a great treasury of information and inspiration for the 100th anniversary of Fatima, filled with stunning photos and images. This book will help you to do what Pope Benedict XVI asked of us all – to learn, live and spread the message of Fatima!” —Fr. Andrew Apostoli, C.F.R., Author, Fatima For Today

“What a masterpiece! Fatima Mysteries is the most comprehensive and thoroughly researched book I have ever read on the Fatima apparitions. It offers an historical, cultural, and theological presentation of everything there is to know about the importance of one of the greatest events in modern times.” —Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, Author, Champions of the Rosary: The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon

Books by Our Priests

That-Nothing-May-Be-LostWe are thrilled to carry books by our Arlington Diocese priests. The latest publication is by Reverend Paul D. Scalia, That Nothing May Be Lost: Reflections on Catholic Doctrine and Devotion.

Fr. Scalia reveals a scholar’s mind and a pastor’s heart in these inspiring reflections on a wide range of Catholic teachings and practices. Rooted in Scripture, these insights place the reader on a path to a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God.

Among the topics explored are deepening one’s knowledge of Jesus, partaking of the life of grace through the sacraments, and cultivating the art of prayer as a continuous conversation with God.

Each section is introduced by a moving essay by a highly regarded Catholic. Fr. Paul CheckJim Towey, Scott HahnMary Ellen BorkGloria PurvisRaymond ArroyoLizz LovettHelen Alvaré, and Dan Mattson offer their personal accounts of being Catholic, which are followed by Fr. Scalia’s illuminations. Archbishop Charles Chaput contributes a thought- provoking foreword, which begins the reader’s exploration of the many important aspects of the Catholic faith presented in this book.

Father Starzynski reminds us through his personal experience and real stories that God is ever present, and that miracles are among the gifts offered to those who petition Him in faith. Father Starzynski’s life is an account of God’s ability to use imperfect human instruments like him — and you — to carry out His will.

Father Starzynski recounts numerous episodes when he personally experienced miracles, often in totally unexpected places. His riveting stories of tiny infants facing life-threatening medical conditions, of people battling demons and disease, of his own experience overcoming depression, and more, will inspire, instruct, and provide hope for all.

Experience the miraculous testimonies from over twenty individuals and families whose lives have been touched by God through Father Starzynski’s ministry, as well as helpful appendices on topics like Medjugorje, Saint Therese, and a section of prayers.

 

What’s New and New Items!

We were sad to learn that the Family Christian Bookstores chain closed its doors last month, particularly at Fair Oaks Mall, where we had established a business relationship over the years. We would mutually refer costumers to each other to find items either store did not carry. We welcome former customers and would like to help serve you in whatever way you need.


9780735213296_p0_v1_s192x300A much anticipated book is now in stock: In this controversial bestseller, Rod Dreher calls on American Christians to prepare for the coming Dark Age by embracing an ancient Christian way of life.

From the inside, American churches have been hollowed out by the departure of young people and by an insipid pseudo–Christianity. From the outside, they are beset by challenges to religious liberty in a rapidly secularizing culture. Keeping Hillary Clinton out of the White House may have bought a brief reprieve from the state’s assault, but it will not stop the West’s slide into decadence and dissolution.

Rod Dreher argues that the way forward is the way back—all the way to St. Benedict of Nur­sia. This sixth-century monk, horrified by the moral chaos following Rome’s fall, retreated to the forest and created a new way of life for Christians. He built enduring communities based on principles of order, hospitality, stability, and prayer. His spiritual centers of hope were strongholds of light throughout the Dark Ages, and saved not just Christianity but Western civilization.

True Joy!

Jesus-walking-forth-from-empty-tomb

“The Lord has risen from the dead, as he said; let us all exult and rejoice, for he reigns for all eternity, alleluia!

By the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ we have been saved from sin, from the power of the devil and from eternal death. Easter reminds us of our supernatural birth and our baptism, when we were made children of God, and it is the guarantee of our own resurrection…True joy does not depend on mere physical or material well-being, is not diminished by the presence of difficulties, by the absence of health…Deep joy originates in Christ, in the love that God has had for us and in our correspondence with this love. The Lord’s promise if fulfilled – today: I will give you a joy which no one will take from you.”

Excerpt from In Conversation with God: Daily Meditations Volume Two, by Francis Fernandez.

The Triduum

holyweek

From the USCCB:

The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery.

The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.

The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are:

  • Mass of the Lord’s Supper
  • Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion
  • Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord

You can find more Holy Week and Easter resources on the USSCB website.

The Paschal Lamb is open 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. We are closed Easter Sunday and open normal business hours Easter Monday.

Have a blessed Easter Season!
