Alban Butler's Lives of the Saints is one of the most revered Catholic books after the Bible, the Missal, and The Imitation of Christ. Written in the early 19th century by Butler, an English convert to Catholicism, the collection is organized by date, which makes the work easy to use for those who want to deepen their devotion to the Saints. Each biographical entry is followed by a lesson to help believers apply the virtues of that saint to their own lives. The January volume includes, among others, Saints Almachius, Euphrosyne, Fulgentius, Felix of Bourges, Peter of Atroa, Odilo, Hugolino of Gualdo, Macarius of Alexandria, Vincentian, Stephana Quinzani, Peter Balsam, Genevieve, Bertilia of Mareuil, and Pharaildis. 1.

Penned by one young preacher to others, all preachers will appreciate the wisdom of Reflections for the Call. Written as a devotional, the book uses practical truths and relevant Scriptures to help reconfirm the assignments of those in ministry. When read with fidelity, it will reignite the passion of not just young preachers but anyone with a public ministry call on their life. Listeners will find 30 timeless admonitions that every minister, especially young ministers, should embrace. Each devotion begins with a scriptural lesson and an easy-to-understand reflection on an important lesson for ministry. Each of the reflections includes sound exegesis of the scriptural reference and is completed with a prayer that the listener can use at that very moment. According to Dr. Marsha Brown Woodard of Palmer Theological Seminary, "These devotions...will speak to young preachers, and still be of benefit to more seasoned preachers as they seek to be faithful to God's call on their lives." There are plenty of preaching books, but few are designed with the young minister in mind. Kyle Boyer has written a work that combines theology and practicality to offer a great guidebook for anyone seeking to be faithful to their God-given assignments. 1. Language: English.

The New York Times Book Review has noted, "Alice Hoffman writes quite wonderfully about the magic in our lives," and now she casts her spell over a Long Island neighborhood filled with dreamers and dreams. In a dazzling series of family portraits, Hoffman evokes the world of the Samuelsons, a family torn apart by tragedy and divorce in a world of bad judgment and fierce attachments, disappointments and devotion. With rich, pure prose Hoffman charts the progress of Gretel Samuelson from the time she is a young girl already acquainted with betrayal and grief, until she finally leaves home. Gretel's sly, funny, knowing perspective is at the heart of this collection, as she navigates through loyalty and loss with the help of an unforgettable trio of women: her best friend, Jill, her romance-addled cousin Margot, and her mother, Franny, whose spiritual journey affects them all. Told in alternating voices, these stories are funny and lyrical, disturbing and healing, each a lesson in survival, a reminder of the ties of blood, and the power of friendship. 1. Language: English.

A century old, eternally new. 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Virgin Mary to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal. The message of Fatima reflects all the teachings of the Catholic faith. It is a message so simple that children could understand it, yet one so rich that theologians are still mining its depths. In The Miracle and the Message: 100 Years of Fatima, author John C. Preiss describes in clear detail the Blessed Mother's appearances to Lucia dos Santos and Francisco and Jacinta Marto (now the Church's youngest canonized saints) and shares the background, sights, and sounds that draw you into the events as they unfolded over the course of the 20th century. More than just a history lesson about the apparitions, The Miracle and the Message shows us how to claim the message in our own lives and fully embrace what Mary offers the Church and the world. Whether you know little about what happened in Fatima and want to learn more, or you already have a devotion to Our Lady of the Rosary, you will love The Miracle and the Message. 1.

This book is a collection of 10 short stories from my book Dog Tales - 60 True Doggy Stories of Loyalty, Heroism and Devotion. As a naturalist, a wildlife photographer, and a dog owner all my life, it never ceases to amaze me the incredible connection we have with our canine companions. With dogs, you get back what you put in, just as you do with your human relationships. Dogs, however, show more ability to forgive the cruelty and indiscretion of ignorant people - well, at least that's what I have observed. As the old saying goes, "No such thing as a bad dog, just a bad owner," and this I believe with all my heart. All my dogs have been rescue dogs taken from lives of abandonment and often cruelty. With patience, love, and stability, all of my dogs have shown loyalty and love way beyond any human should deserve. They've taught me so much, and my life without them would be so much poorer. The stories in this series of books will hopefully make you laugh, cry, and be proud to be a dog owner. Please remember this budget-priced book is just a small sample of the complete volume Dog Tales, which is also available in audio and paperback. If you enjoy my stories, I'd really appreciate it if you could leave an honest review. Thanks, J.

There were still lessons to learn and consequences for the truth! When Claire Nichols met Anthony Rawlings, she didn’t know they had a past, or that he had plans for her future. Over time, the role of teacher changed - games became reality - and domination turned to desire. Despite an insurmountable history, Claire and Tony found their way back to one another. Just when they seemed to have it all - love, respect, and the promise of a family - the game master exposed the truth. Claire’s world once again spun out of control. Unwilling to allow her child to suffer the consequences of an old vendetta, Claire fled.... At one time, Claire was held captive in an opulent mansion - then her incarceration was a cell inside a state penitentiary. Was her new prison - a tropical island - truly less lonely? Perhaps that was the game master’s plan, all along? Who will save Claire from her oldest nightmare and her newest reality? Will it be Tony? Can he forgive her for leaving him - again? Harry? Will he utilize previously unknown connections to save the woman who infiltrates his thoughts? Maybe Phil? Will his devotion in keeping Claire and her child safe be rewarded? As the cards are played, sins of the past, innocent victims, and truths are revealed. With compartmentalization no longer an option, is the reality too much? Could there be an even worse isolation? With the game master dealing from a stacked deck, can this new high-stakes game possibly be won? When it's all over and their cards are on the table, some will discover their bets were too high - they have nothing left to lose - all will learn the crucial lesson - the most important rule - there are consequences for the truth!

This is a translation of Kitab al-Tilawah, one of the chapters from Imam al-Nawawi’s book, al-Adhkar. It contains important information for all those are Hafizul Qur’an or are studying to achieve that, or simply anyone who recites the Noble Qur’an.Imam Muhyi al-Din Abu Zakariya Yahya bin Sharaf al-Nawawi, for short Imam Nawawi, was born in the village of Nawa in the vicinity of Damascus in 631 A.H. (1233 A.D.). He grew up in Nawa and at the age of 19 went to study in Damascus which was considered the center of learning and scholarship. During his stay at Damascus, Imam Nawawi studied from more than 20 celebrated teachers, regarded as masters and authorities of their fields and disciplines. He studied Hadith, Islamic jurisprudence and principles, syntax and Etymology from great scholars such as Abu Ibrahim Ishaq bin Ahmad AI-Maghribi, Abu Muhammad Abdur-Rahman bin Ibrahim Al-Fazari, Radiyuddin Abu Ishaq Ibrahim bin Abu Hafs Umar bin Mudar Al-Mudari, Abu Ishaq Ibrahim bin Isa Al-Muradi, Abul-Baqa Khalid bin Yusuf An-Nablusi, and Abul-Abbas Ahmad bin Salim Al-Misri. Imam Nawawi had endless thirst for knowledge. He used to read 12 lessons daily and wrote commentaries on every lesson. Whatever books he read, he would write marginal notes and explanations on each book. His intelligence, hard work, love, devotion and absorption in his studies amazed his teachers and they became fond of him and began to praise and admire him. Allah had also conferred upon him the gift of fast memorisation and depth of thought. Imam Nawawi made full benefit of his God given qualities and potentialities and earned the highest degree of honor. Imam Nawawi led a life of singular piety, righteousness and simplicity. After over 20 years, he returned to his hometown. Soon after his arrival at Nawa, he fell ill and died in 676 A.H. (1278 AD). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fadhl Hasan.
