Secrets of the Sacred Heart
In a vision to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Jesus said that those who “honor his most Sacred Heart” will find peace in the home, consolation in sorrow, and a source of refuge in times of trouble. We pray that we may grow closer to the Lord's heart, in good times and in bad, and trust in his promises. Would you like to start a devotion to The Sacred Heart of Jesus? Learn how with Secrets of the Sacred Heart by Emily Jaminet.

Christ in the Storm
Christ in the Storm is the first book on the Pope’s powerful and hopeful message during what we now know was just the beginning of the worldwide pandemic.

In Real Presence, University of Notre Dame theologian Timothy P. O’Malley clears up the confusion by explaining the biblical origins and long tradition of the Church’s doctrines of real presence and transubstantiation. He also explores the spiritual practices necessary to form us to recognize Christ in the Eucharist and to see the Lord in others.
