I Will See You in Heaven (audiobook)

I WILL SEE YOU IN HEAVEN (audiobook)


The question, "Will I see my dog (my cat, my rabbit, my gerbil, my parrot, my turtle) in heaven?" is one that is very close to our hearts. It is important. The question of the future of our beloved pets holds deep emotional importance for us -- and it should."
-- Friar Jack Wintz, OFM

With heart-warming reassurance, Friar Jack reminds us that God's goodness is reflected in the whole family of creation and that the Bible gives us many clues that we will be with our pets in heaven for eternity! We can be confident that our beloved animal companions will be waiting for us at the pearly gates with wagging tails, soft purrs, and enthusiastic welcomes. Read by Friar Jim van Vurst, OFM.

Dark Night of the Soul (5 CD Set)

DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL (5 CD set)
St. John of the Cross


"With His gentle hand He wounded my neck and caused all my senses to be suspended."

Part poetic masterpiece, part mystic treatise, The Dark Night of the Soul by 16th century Carmelite monk St. John of the Cross, addresses the feeling of being forgotten by the Presence of the Almighty that every Christian desirous of walking more closely with God must pass through in order to learn to walk by faith and not by sight. The texts tell of the saint's mystical development and the stages he is subjected to on his journey towards union with God.

"Spiritual persons suffer great trials...by reason…of the fear which they have of being lost on the road, thinking that all spiritual blessing is over for them and that God has abandoned them since they find no help or pleasure in good things. Then they grow weary, and endeavor to concentrate their faculties with some degree of pleasure upon some object of meditation, thinking that, when they are not doing this and yet are conscious of making an effort, they are doing nothing."

Perhaps one of the most widely recognized of mystical writings, St. John's classic Dark Night of the Soul is not only practical theology but a beautiful balm of healing to anyone whose heart has ever echoed the words of Christ, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" Read by Michael Kramer. Unabridged.

5-CD set, approx. 5.5 hrs.

Revelations of Divine Love (5-CD Set)

REVELATIONS OF DIVINE LOVE
(5-CD Audio Book Set)


Some consider these 16 Revelations to be the height of European mysticism. Julian (ca. 1342-1416), a Benedictine nun in Norwich, England, spent 20 years meditating on her visions before writing about them. Although she lived in a time of turmoil, her theology is optimistic, speaking of God in terms of universal love and of human suffering not as divine punishment. Translated in 1901 by Grace Warren, a Dean and Professor of English and read beautifully by Pam Ward, this audiobook is both scholarly and accessible. 37 separate track, so listeners can easily stop and repeat sections. Approx. 6 hours.

    A Book of Hours: At Prayer with Thomas Merton is an audio breviary created by Kathleen Deignan, CND, using the prayers, poems and psalms of the spiritual master who taught countless worldly contemplatives the art of lectio divina, the meditative reading of sacred texts which draws our souls into deep silence and devotion.

    When Saint Francis Saved the Church (4-CD set)

    WHEN SAINT FRANCIS
    SAVED THE CHURCH (4-CD set)
    by Jon Sweeney


    Popular historian Jon Sweeney presents an intriguing portrait of Francis of Assisi beyond the familiar stories and images. In the tradition of Thomas Cahill's How the Irish Saved Civilization, Sweeney reveals how the saint became a hinge in the history of the Christian faith and shows how in just fourteen years—from 1205 to 1219—the unconventional and stumbling wisdom of a converted troubadour changed the Church and quite literally saved the Christian faith.

    Sweeney outlines Francis's revolutionary approach to friendship, "the other" (people at the margins), poverty, spirituality, care (for people, creatures, and the natural world), and death.
