Using irony and a healthy dose of playful sarcasm, Inside the Atheist Mind lampoons, teases, and deflates the atheist position, unmasking it for what it is_an empty, intellectually barren philosophy, devoid of any logic and common sense.
Preaching and teaching about abortion from the pulpit or other catechetical settings can be a challenging yet essential undertaking for any pastor, deacon or pro-life advocate. In Proclaiming the Message of Life, Fr. Frank Pavone shows clergy and laity alike the pro-life themes found in the Sunday readings for each week of the year, in all three cycles of the lectionary. This makes a good gift for preachers as well as for laity who want to draw out the pro-life lessons from the readings.
We are so grateful to the wonderful people at Servant Books (an imprint of Franciscan Media) for all they have done to make this publication possible!
"Clergy and laity alike are called to root their pro-life commitment in the Word of God. Fr. Pavone's new book gives all of us an effective way to do that, and I recommend it to those in the pulpit and those in the pews as well!" - Bishop Michael Sheridan
Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano teams up once again with renowned illustrator Richard Cowdrey to tell the tale of a scraggly, smelly little puppy who never loses hope that one day he will find a home of his own with a family to love. One rainy night, his dream comes true in an unexpected way when he meets a very special family. Rich in biblical imagery, this simple story of an adorable lonely puppy reveals the profound truth that all of us are really outcasts in life - and can only find our true home in God.
“Anthony DeStefano has written a classic story that is full of biblical symbolism, and yet can be read as a simple and sweet tale of a little dog that's been cast aside and wants to find a home.” - Cardinal Renato Raffaele Martino Former President, Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace Former Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations Vatican City
For the many inspired by Anthony DeStefano's A Travel Guide to Heaven -a remarkable tour of the pleasures God has in store for us in the next and everlasting life-more inspiration is here in A TRAVEL GUIDE TO LIFE, offering an enlightening tour of the kind of deeply meaningful and happy life we can live here on earth. DeStefano outlines the path that can lead each and every one of us to renewed faith, understanding and fulfillment. With simplicity, honesty and a personal and practical look at the challenges God places before us, he outlines a reassuring and hopeful framework for living the life God has designed for us all ... even if we're not sure (yet) that we're true believers.
DeStefano offers hope and optimism to everyone-committed Christians as well as struggling doubters, agnostics and even atheists-whether we've lived exemplary lives or are sinners who've lost all hope, whether we're struggling to keep a roof overhead and food on the table or are seemingly successful and surrounded by material wealth
Anthony’s book shows that every human being is a miracle; that we are not just our bodies, but rather, we are soul and spirit, and are therefore capable of achieving miraculous things during this adventure called life.” - Tony Robbins
Fr. Frank Pavone as Pastoral Director of Rachel’s Vineyard and the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has composed this prayer booklet based on the truth that are all wounded by abortion, whether we realize it or not (see AbortionShockwaves.com).
The prayers are for those praying for the wounded and for the wounded praying for themselves. Prayer is not a substitute for the hard work of grieving and reconciliation, but is a necessary help to that process.
