THE END OF THE EARTH

Craughwell explores the life of Pope Francis, including his birth and early years "at the end of the earth" in Argentina; his mystical experience as a teenager that drew him to religious life; his years as a priest and bishop with a heart for the poor and marginalized; and his unflagging courage to teach and defend the Catholic faith.

UNDERSTANDING RANCÉ
The Spirituality of the Abbot
of La Trappe in Context


Both during his lifetime and afterwards Armand Jean le Bouthillier, the abbé de Rancé (1626-1700, founder of the Trappist Cistercians), was a controversial figure; extravagantly admired by many, he also had "an unhappy genius for incurring hostility unnecessarily". This volume sets Rancé against the colorful and extravagant world of seventeenth-century France and explores the world which surrounded and formed this ever fascinating monk, from the privileged circles of the ancient regime in which he spent his youth to the austere monastic environment he created at La Trappe. Paperback, 371 pages.

Frances Nevins: Mid 20th Century Carmelite

FRANCES NEVINS:
MID 20TH CENTURY CARMELITE


Frances Nevins (Sr. Christine Marie of the Holy Spirit, OCD, 1930-1980) left family, fortune, husband, friends and the scholarly life for one reason -- the love of God.

Author Joan Ward Mullaney, Ph.D., who served as Professor and Dean at the Catholic University of America, was Frances Nevins' friend of nearly a quarter-century, and visited and corresponded with her regularly during her twenty years in Carmel. Entrusted with her journals and retreat notes by the Prioress of her convent after Frances' death, Mullaney has produced a spiritual biography of a modern American Carmelite called "the holiest person I ever knew" by Jesuit theologian Charles Reardon, SJ, her confessor. Mullaney presents Nevins as friend, scholar, wife, nun and mystic, using her own words exactly as she wrote them.

The writings span twenty years of sea change in her own life, monastic life and society. She writes about her extraordinary relationship with God, describing it with clarity, care and unmistakable knowledge. Through prayer-filled words, her faith, love and trust are evident. Her writings also show that, despite her omnipresent poor health, suffering did not become central; love was central. Trust in God, she affirmed over and over, will take care of everything. 48 pages of B&W illustrations. Paperback, 315 pages.

AS WE KNEW HIM
Reflections on M. Basil Pennington


M. Basil Pennington (1931 – 2005) lived more than 50 years as a Cistercian monk and priest, called to a life of solitude and silence, prayer and contemplation. During that half century, he also traveled the world teaching, wrote dozens of books, and was a founder of the Centering Prayer movement and several national and international organizations. Who was this dynamic and deeply spiritual man? Contributors include Thomas Keating, Laurence Freeman, E. Glenn Hinson, Werner Erhard, members of Basil's immediate family, and many others. As We Knew Him also includes a previously unpublished autobiographical reflection by M. Basil Pennington himself.

As We Knew Him is the compelling story of one of the great spiritual leaders of the last century. Family, friends and colleagues who knew Basil and worked alongside him share their experiences of a simple yet charismatic man of faith and the difference he made in millions of lives. Through their memories, you will encounter an unforgettable presence whose contributions will live on far beyond his years. Hardcover, 207 pages
