Proclaiming the Message of Life: Weekly Reflections from the Lectionary

$20 each or get 3 for $50.

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

The Puppy That No One Wanted


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

DeStefano finds a fresh take on the events that lead to Easter. Using a small scriptural reference to the unridden donkey that Jesus rides in triumph into Jerusalem, DeStefano imagines a transformative relationship between a small, weak donkey and a figure who gives him strength and asks him to have faith. The text’s rhymes (“No matter how much he tried or he cried/ This was a donkey no one could ride”) make for easy read-aloud. Cowdrey’s illustrations focus on the donkey, conveying the development from initial lethargy to the donkey’s energetic and confident strength. It’s a welcome change from Easter chicks and bunnies. Ages 5–up. - Publishers Weekly
