Nursery of Heaven: Marriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Loss in the Lives of the Saints and Today's Parents

Miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss happen more often than we realize, leaving many to suffer in isolation. This unique companion will help those grieving from child loss as they search for comfort and meaning.

Couples will encounter the experiences of holy people who suffered loss, such as Sts. Louis and Zélie Martin, St. Gianna Molla, and Servant of God Chiara Corbella Petrillo. Parents will also receive hope and consolation from firsthand stories of modern-day parents who have experienced similar losses.

Patrick O'Hearn masterfully guides you through Our Lady’s Seven Sorrows with brief Scripture passages, meditations, and prayers for each mystery.

He revives the age-old practice of praying seven Hail Marys daily in honor of Our Lady’s Seven Sorrows, one of the simplest yet most powerful and grace-releasing devotions in the Catholic Church that every Catholic child should know and practice.

30 Day Eucharistic Revival: A Retreat with St. Peter Julian Eymard
Several popes have referred to St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868) as "the Apostle of the Eucharist." Nonetheless, he is not that well known in the universal Church.

When it comes to worldwide recognition of his extraordinary life, as well as the many amazing things he did to foster a greater love for the Blessed Sacrament, most Catholics are unfamiliar with him and have never heard his name. That is about to change. 30 Day Eucharistic Revival is intended to help you, your children, your grandchildren, and all future generations rediscover and experience a revival of belief in the Real Presence.

Go and Fear Nothing brings to life for young people this incredible real-life story and Our Lady's message of praying for the conversion of sinners, learning our Catechism, receiving the sacraments with devotion, and relying on her unfailing help.

When we doubt ourselves or feel we need to make excuses for our weaknesses, we can remember Our Lady's words to Adele: "Go and fear nothing. I will help you."
