Set alongside Pope Benedict XVI's first encyclical God Is Love (Deus Caritas Est) where he stressed the relationship between the Eucharist and love, The Sacrament of Charity picks up that theme and expands it as Pope Benedict explores the mystery of eucharistic faith and how it reveals the mystery of the Trinity. Released on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, the Holy Father examines the important relationship between the Eucharist and the other sacraments, including the sacrament of the Church. He also highlights the social implications of the Eucharist and firmly connects it with the Church's social teaching.
Providing the meanings that were originally associated with the art, architecture, rites, and vestments of the Church, this account transforms the worship experience by teaching what certain elements are used and why they are used. Claiming architects should be filled with the spirit of faith and knowledge of the meanings of all structural details and designs of the church, the author illuminates the meanings of the physical elements like the nave, the altar, the cross, and bells. He also clarifies the mystical significance of the chancel site, the glazed windows and pillars, the bell and its clapper, the altar cloths, and how the steps leading up to the altar refer both to Jacob's Ladder and to the degrees in worshippers' hearts.

Perhaps no other papal document more eloquently articulates the importance of catechesis in our time — and how to undertake it — than Catechesi Tradendae. Written by St. John Paul II, this apostolic exhortation describes the important and unique roles the Church, the laity, and the family play in ensuring that all Catholics not only understand the Faith, but are prepared to live it fully. “ St. John Paul II gives the catechist the vision, methods, and roadmap for effective and dynamic catechesis in our modern culture.” --Bishop Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange

Callan, the most ruthlessly efficient member of British Intelligence's own assassination bureau known only as The Section, had made many deadly enemies within Moscow's KGB. So why were they now recommending him for job? It's not a job Callan wants, he just wants to get out of the whole sordid business, but if he doesn't take the job - rescuing a radical Greek politician's daughter from her kidnappers on Crete - then Callan might just find himself in one of the Section's infamous Red Files. 'I'm finished with you, ' said Callan. 'Finished with the Section. You know that.' 'Nobody's ever completely finished with me, ' said Hunter. First published in 1974, this was the third full-length Callan novel by his creator James Mitchell, back in print for the first time in 38 year

Written by Pope Paul VI in 1975, Evangelii Nuntiandi has lost none of its force and brilliance over the past forty years. Pope Francis has called the exhortation to my mind, the greatest pastoral document that has ever been written to this day. Quoted extensively, especially by subsequent popes, On Evangelization in the Modern World has served as a guiding document for the work of the New Evangelization in the Church today. To commemorate Pope Pauls upcoming beatification, The Word Among Us Press has republished this edition of Evangelii Nuntiandi, which includes a foreword by Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, as well as a study guide for reflection and discussion.
