    Book summary:

    You've matured, but have your prayers? Has your understanding of prayer matured since you learned to pray at your mother's knee? Or, like many of us, do you continue to pray, year after year, as you were taught as a child?

    If your prayers are difficult or boring, your problem may not be so much failure of will (you do try to pray well) as lack of knowledge about how mature souls pray. Most of us have been doing it so long that we pray automatically without really thinking about it.

    The good news is that such problems are easily overcome!

    This remarkable book offers practical ways that you can improve your prayers today and grow closer to God.

    Learn:

  • How to overcome distractions
  • How to pray when your heart is empty
  • How to avoid monotony
  • The best posture for prayer ... and more!

    Book summary:

    Religion/Theology ROMANO GUARDINI, widely recognized as the theological mentor of Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), presents a series of meditations on the life of Christ that will remind readers of the pope's Jesus of Nazareth series. Delivered while Guardini was writ-ing his bestselling masterwork The Lord, these reflections inspire the reader to contemplate the presence that Jesus Christ manifested to the world. "As we are taught by Guardini, the essence of Christianity is not an idea, not a system of thought, not a plan of action. The essence of Christianity is a Person: Jesus Christ himself." --Pope Benedict XVI "The explicit goal of Guardini's meditations in Jesus Christus is to lead each reader to a greater knowledge of and union with the Lord. At the same time, the book's implicit goal is each reader's maturation into the person whom God envisions." --Robert Krieg, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame "A towering figure in twentieth-century Catholic theology, Romano Guardini has left us and the Church he ardently loved a lasting legacy of incomparable richness and depth, not the least of which being this little book." --Regis Martin, Professor of Theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville

    Book summary:

    There's more to goodness than keeping the Commandments: you've got to cultivate virtue, too, so that you please God in what you do not merely in what you don t do. In these pages, you'll learn countless ways to grow in such virtue.

    The wise Msgr. Romano Guardini, a German priest hailed by Pope Benedict XVI as a great figure who aspired to the truth of God and to the truth of man, leads you from a consideration of virtue in itself to a discussion of each of the key virtues that will make you holy and lead you to God.

    Here you'll learn how to begin practicing the virtues and make them part of your daily routine. You'll also learn about:


  • Envy, the hidden sin, even in the spiritually mature: how to fight it
  • Courtesy: how good manners are spiritually vital to souls
  • "What is truth?" The surprising answer to Pilate's question will transform you
  • Patience: it's the prerequisite for all moral growth, and only the morally strong attain it
  • Orderliness: not a moral virtue in itself, but lack of it may cost your soul
  • Why a sense of humor is so important even to your spiritual health
  • The strange contradiction in blaming God for the evil in the world
  • Belief in progress: in our day it can be a form of idolatry
  • The tyranny of justice: why so many justice movements turn unjust (knowing this is the key to our future as a society)
  • Asceticism: it's not just for monks without it, you may not be saved!
  • Trashy movies: there's spiritual danger even in the ones that don't obviously glorify sin
  • Discover why noise weakens the soul, and how silence is balm for your spiritual life
  • Plus: many other topics to help you grow in the virtues that lead you to God!

    Book summary:

    The only true and unedited telling of the life of Christhis life and times, in historical context, but not lacking the psychology behind his physical being and spirit. Unlike other books seeking to strip Jesus' story to reveal only the human being, Romano Guardini's The Lord gives the complete story of Jesus Christas man, Holy Ghost, and Creator. Pope Benedict XVI lauds Guardini's work as providing a full understanding of the Son of God, away from the prejudice that rationality engenders. Put long-held myths aside and discover the entire truth about God's only begotten Son.

    Find signed collectible books: 'Meditations Before Mass'
    Book summary:

    For many a believer the Mass has assumed the character of a sacred spectacle or of some mysterious proceeding before which he says his prayers. Its reality consequently is buried, and something ir replaceable is lost. The reasons for this are many and go so far back that criticism is pointless. But it is time that the Mass become again for the faithful what it is and was instituted to be: the sacred action of Christs community, which, though under the care of the priestly office, is meant to live and act as a true community, as the Acts of the Apostles (2:46) and the first Epistle to the Corinthians (11:17-34) point out. That is where this book is meant to help. It does not try to show how the Mass should be celebrated or how, within the prescribed limits of ecclesiastical law (or perhaps through a more perfect fulfillment of the lex orandi), the organic structure of the sacred ceremony could be brought out more clearly or even how closer participation of the faithful is to be achieved. That is the task of a religious manual. What is needed here is personal preparation for Holy Mass.

    "As we are taught by Guardini, the essence of Christianity is not an idea, not a system of thought, not a plan of action. The essence of Christianity is a Person: Jesus Christ himself."--Cardinal Josef Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI).

    Romano Guardini (1885-1968), an Italian-born German priest and theologian, was an influential writer whose efforts to relate the Christian message to a modern audience helped prepare the way for Vatican II. According to Karl Rahner, Guardini was a Renaissance man who led Catholics out of an intellectual and cultural ghetto and into the contemporary age. His Christian humanist vision at once deeply traditional and finely attuned to the questions of men and women today deserves the attention of a new generation

    Book summary:

    Originally written in 1918, this profound reflection on the nature of liturgical worship still stands as a guiding light for today's renewal of worship and prayer. In poetic terms, it clarifies the underlying principles and existential implications of the belief that when Christians join in the Eucharist and other liturgical celebrations, they do so not as discrete individuals but as interconnected members of the one People of God.
