  • Dear Children - The Queen of Peace Visits Medjugorje

    Life was simple in Medjugorje…

    People lived like they had for hundreds of years—growing crops, raising livestock, and spending time with family and friends. Heaven, though, had other plans, and the village changed forever after a group of children saw an extraordinary sight on a nearby hillside one summer afternoon.

    Throughout history, people in different parts of the world have been visited by Mary, the mother of Jesus. Still, no one expected her to visit Medjugorje, least of all the six children who would come to be known as “the visionaries.” As they would soon find out, her heavenly visits would transform their sleepy hamlet into a destination of hope and peace for people from every part of the world.

    Mary’s messages begin with the words “Dear Children,” and she wishes for every person in the world to see her as a mother. This is the true story of Medjugorje and the Queen of Peace.

  • Lenten Survival Guide for Kids

    By Peter Celano

    Written for 7-11 year olds, this playful guide appeals to kids who want to know more about what adults are telling them is a serious time. Without talking down to them, and challenging them to learn and do more, the following topics are explored in detail: What Lent Is, What Lent Definitely Is Not, 40 Days of Survival Tactics, and A Few Prayers and Practices — Only for Kids.

    From What Lent Definitely Is Not:

    People easily become confused on this subject. In fact, we’re glad you are reading this book, because we want to set you, at least, straight. You can then please set others straight.

    Lent is not about "giving up" silly things. It is not about making sad faces to show how difficult life has suddenly become for you. (Need we startexplaining how most of the world would think that giving up candy bars or soda for 40 days sounds just plain silly? According to Bread for the World, 925 million people around the world go hungry each day. So please don’t talk about the terrible hardship you are undergoing by giving up M&M’s and Coca-Cola for a few weeks.)

    So instead of focusing on what you may give up, take time to consider why you may do it. You give stuff up for Lent because you want to become a better Christian. You are testing yourself — and allowingGod to test you — to see if, by giving up something that maybe you are toofocused on in everyday life, you can concentrate more on him.

  • Journey to the Heart: Centering Prayer for Children

    This new resource has been declared Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur by William B. Smith, S.T.D., Censor Librorum and Dennis J. Sullivan, Vicar General, Archdiocese of New York

    Millions of books have been sold, teaching adults the practice of centering prayer. Finally, a guide for children!

    Centering prayer is a way of opening our whole being to God, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. It is simple and practical—a way of preparing heart and mind to receive the gift of intimate relationship with God. Jesus said, “When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:6)

    Frank Jelenek shows young children just how to do that. The first guide to a contemplative prayer practice for children, Journey to the Heart both instructs and inspires. Many parents and teachers will learn from this colorful treasure of a book, as well! Until now, parents and teachers had no resource available to introduce children to the joys of communicating with God in this special, intimate way.

    This loving book makes it easy for children to share in the spiritual nourishment of centering prayer through age-appropriate illustrations and text that provides clear directions and encouragement in simple, fun language. Ideal for ages 3 – 10.

  • Angels for Kids

    By Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle

    Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle featured on EWTN Sunday Night Prime with Fr. Andrew Apostoli speaking about Angels - Sunday, Nov. 9 The invisible world of angels is so often overlooked, though it has been present since before the dawn of Creation, offering attentive service and protection to humankind. Based on Catholic teaching, Angels for Kids offers proof of the true existence of angels while dispelling prevalent contemporary myths.

    This inspiring book will open the eyes and hearts of youth and their families to a greater awareness of the unseen world, as well as provide warm encouragement to keep company with the incredible angelic friends who unceasingly glorify God and who have been a significant part of salvation history; protecting Jesus throughout His life, announcing heaven's plans, and guiding and protecting the faithful. A chapter of special prayers to the angels completes the book.

    "Angels are our protectors,companions, and God's messengers. In Angels for Kids,Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle shares the important role they play in our lives in language that is compelling and at the same time accessible for little souls. Buy this book for your kids, savor some reading time along with them, andyou'll be amazed by how much you'll learn too!"
    Lisa M. Hendey , Author of A Book ofSaints for Catholic Moms and founder of www.CatholicMom.com

    All children should grow up knowing the companionship and powerful help of the holy angels. All children should grow up knowing the truth that this book teaches. It makes for a happier, more confident life. God created the angels to serve us as they glorify Him. We show our gratitude by enjoying their friendship, and Donna-Marie tells us how.
    Mike Aquilina Author, Angels of God, A Year with the Angels, and Entertaining Angels

    "What a delightful little book! Angels For Kids is wonderful in its simplicity and, yet, profound in its content and impact. Children of all ages will greatly benefit from this little catechesis on the angels. This book is truly a gem, containing both beautiful prayers and childlike insights, and Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle has outdone herself in offering to all God's children this angelic treasury!"
    Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, STL Author, Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest

    " Science calls us to believe in the unseeable — black holes in space, which cannot ever be seenbecause they absorb all light before it can reflect back to an observer. They believe in black holes because of anomalous behavior in space. So also, Christians, like Jews, Muslims, and many other religious people around the world and throughout history believe in angels, not only because of anomalous behaviors we experience in life's events but also because of God's Revelation in Scripture. We do well to introduce children to these facts, along with astronomical facts, to prepare them for a mature spiritual life. This book is such an introduction, and parents might be reminded of their own angels as they read with theirchildren."
    Fr. Mitch Pacwa,S.J.

    "Angels for Kids by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle surveys the whole Bible in a touching way . Thebook reminds its young readers that they are always lovingly cared for by God and protected from every kind of harm."

  • God's Easter Miracles

    In God's Easter Miracles, the sea kids learn that Easter isn't about the Easter bunny or candy. It's about Jesus Christ giving up His life for all of us, and how we are to sacrifice ourselves for others.

    Paul, who is autistic, struggles with relationships, Jimmy doesn't want to share, and Lenny clings to life due to a terrible boat accident. On Easter Sunday, the children witness the power of their prayers. Their Sunday School teacher, Miss Linda, tells the children, "Truly, God has blessed us with many Easter miracles. Lenny was healed, and Jimmy asked Jesus into his heart." Even Paul has a miraculous change of heart. A true lesson of becoming more like Jesus is learned in this beautiful Easter story of love and grace.

  • The Pope's Cat

    Released for the 5th anniversary of the election of Pope Francis!

    This is the story of a stray born on the Via della Conciliazione in Rome, how she’s adopted by the Pope, and then “rules” the Vatican from museum to floorboard! First in a new series.

    No one has a closer view of what’s happening in the world’s tiniest nation, Vatican City, than Margaret, the Pope’s new cat. But she wasn’t always Margaret, and she wasn’t always the Pope’s cat. She started out as a stray on the streets of Rome, and there are those in the Vatican who wish she’d never been allowed inside.

    This fun, adorable new character will appeal to all kids! Here is a cat who does what she likes regardless of what others, even someone like the Pope, expects of her!

    “The Pope’s Cat is a heartwarming tale, which gives the papacy a human touch, along with a taste of life in Rome. Sweeney has done an excellent job in opening up the world of the Vatican to youngsters. I read it to my two children and they both loved it!” 
    Christopher Lamb, Rome correspondent for The Tablet (UK)

    “Young readers will surely fall in love with Margaret, the spirit-filled pet at the heart of The Pope's Cat! Accompanied by fanciful illustrations from Roy Deleon, Jon Sweeney’s first book for children invites us to peek inside the Vatican and discover a Pope who loves adorable cats just like the rest of us.”
    Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com, author of the Chime Travelers series

      “Margaret brings joy and quiet companionship into the Pope’s life in this sweet tale of friendship that left me hungry—not only for gelato and spaghetti alle vongole—but for more stories about this dear pair.” 
    Jennifer Grant, award-winning author of Maybe God Is Like That Too

    “As a self-professed gelateria Catholic, fascinated by Rome, the papacy, and cats, I cannot wait to read this story to our children and the cats we have at home.”
    Massimo Faggioli, Professor of Historical Theology, Villanova University

  • DRAGA DJECO - Kraljica Mira pohodi Međugorje

    This is the Croatian version of Dear Children, the children's book about Medjugorje.

    Život u Međugorju je bio jednostavan...

    Ljudi su živjeli kao i tijekom proteklih stotine godina – uzgajali su usjeve, skrbili o stoci i provodili vrijeme s obitelji i prijateljima. Nebo je, međutim, imalo drugačije planove i selo se zauvijek promijenilo nakon što je skupina djece vidjela izvanredan prizor na obližnjem brdu jednoga ljetnog popodneva.

    Tijekom povijesti ljude je u različitim dijelovima svijeta pohodila Marija, Isusova majka. Ipak, nitko nije očekivao da bi ona mogla pohoditi Međugorje, a najmanje od svih to je očekivalo šestero djece koja će postati poznata kao "vidioci". Iako to nisu mogli ni zamisliti, njezin nebeski pohod će preobraziti njihov uspavani zaselak u odredište nade i mira za ljude sa svih strana svijeta.

    Marijine poruke počinju riječima "Draga djeco", a ona želi da je svaka osoba na svijetu vidi kao majku. Ovo je istinita priča o Međugorju i Kraljici Mira.

    Autographed by the author.

"But there are many good reasons for you to believe that your dog, cat, fish, hamster, snake, ferret, iguana—or any other creature that God created—will go to heaven when it dies. God has given us clues and hints in stories from the Bible and in theteachings of my favorite saint, Francis of Assisi..."
