Totus Tuus: A Consecration to Jesus through Mary

By Father Brian McMaster

About the book:

Amidst the Nazi occupation of Poland and long days in forced labor at a quarry and chemical plant, young Karol Wojtyla – the man who would become Pope John Paul II – made a discovery that would change his life. He read the 18th century spiritual writings of St. Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort and prayed St. Louis’ thirty-three days of preparation for total consecration to Jesus through Mary. He understood anew that the purpose of a true devotion to Mary is to be directed into a deeper relationship with Jesus and the Holy Trinity. The consecration so marked his life that he would adopt St. Louis’ phrase Totus Tuus (Latin for “Totally Yours”) as his motto as bishop and later as pope.

Blessed John Paul II’s adoption of this radical commitment to Jesus through Mary ignited a new flame in the hearts of countless Catholics all over the world.

This fresh look at Marian consecration takes the themes and structures of St. Louis de Montfort’s preparation for total consecration and incorporates the teachings and insight of Blessed John Paul II, including prayer, contemplation, and resolutions that will open your heart to the life of the Holy Trinity. Through these thirty-three days of spiritual exercises you will discover how you can grow closer to Jesus through the heart of Mary, while becoming the very best version of yourself in a life of consecration.

Evangelizing Catholics: A Mission Manual for the New Evangelization

By Scott Hahn

About the book:

You can’t keep the faith unless you give it away.

That’s a fact. To be a Christian is to be an evangelizer. When the Catholic Church calls us to a “New Evangelization,” that’s simply a reminder to us of what has always been true. The good news is: you can do it – you can evangelize – and Scott Hahn shows you how.

In this this very practical “mission manual” Dr. Hahn equips you with:

  • A guide to understanding what the New Evangelization is, and who it’s really for
  • A roadmap that leads you to where it all happens (hint: it’s closer than you think)
  • A simple, beautiful message to share – in words and actions

You don’t need esoteric knowledge. You don’t need to master a new set of skills. Evangelization, for Catholics, is simply friendship raised up to the highest level. Enter a deeper friendship with Christ, and you’ll want to share his companionship more and more with a wider circle of friends.

Saints and Social Justice: A Guide to Changing the World

By Brandon Vogt

About the book:

The value of human life. The call to family and community. Serving the poor. The rights of workers. Care for creation.

With the help of fourteen saints, it’s time we reclaim Catholic social teaching and rediscover it through the lives of those who best lived it out. Follow in the saints’ footsteps, learn from their example, and become the spark of authentic social justice that sets the world on fire.
