The goal of this short work is to present the final version of St. Luke’s theological account of Pentecost. Throughout the different amendments of his texts, St. Luke had different approaches to the event of Pentecost. The versions of Luke and Acts we have today in the New Testament are his final amended versions. In them we have a revolutionized way of understanding how Pentecost is applied and lived by each and every reader of his work. What is most surprising is that one event overshadows the rest, both in Acts and throughout Luke’s entire Gospel, most importantly in Chapter 1, and at its very heart – the Visitation of Mary to her kinswoman Elisabeth. Indeed this event illustrates that we are all called to be like Elisabeth and receive the Visit of Our Lady, bearing Our Lord, and to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Amazon.co.uk Amazon.com
There is no denying the fact that it is necessary to understand the correct place of Mary in our prayer life, and furthermore we need to accept Mary’s prayer in us, so when we pray, we pray perfectly, using the Fire of Mary’s Prayer. In this book, the deliberate intention is to go through the different elements of prayer, and combine them with each other at each stage, so that they culminate in our accepting and receiving Mary’s own perfect worship, learning how to make it ours.

“I do not believe that a similar book exists on lectio divina. […] your book is a catharsis for modern intelligence and at the same time a teaching that frees the reader from the “psyche” and its illusions. […] The most terrible thing today is that souls are so thirsty for God, a thirst to meet him in prayer and to be touched by him. […] We can read ample descriptions about the “border of the well”, but in fact what we need is to quench the thirst. What is special about this book is that it teaches the reader how to get water out of the well.” G. Solari

The prayer of the heart is one of the dearest treasures of Christianity. It transforms any prayer by the fire of God’s love, allowing for an immersion in Christ whereby He is able to communicate to us the Holy Spirit.

While remaining rooted in the living Tradition, the book offers new and abundant practical insights as well, making it a useful contemporary manual to this ancient spiritual practice.

St Thérèse of the Child Jesus is co-patroness of the School of Mary. “Placing online the group of Thérèse’s originals (called facsimiles) is an invitation open to all. We go to the source materials and reflect upon them so that a new space behind the texts of Thérèse, our Saint Thérèse, opens up. Interweaving her texts that are well known and read with these poor papers, torn, covered with such eloquent writing, obliges us to go beyond our knowledge of the texts to meet another Thérèse.” (to the website of Thérèse’s Works online)
This book contains the seventy Wednesday Catecheses of Pope St. John Paul II on Our Lady: from September 1995 to November 1997. They are part of his great Catechesis on the Creed. This Catechesis is of utmost interest since it comes after his Encyclical Letter on Our Lady (1987), “Redemptoris Mater” and after the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1992). These seventy Catecheses constitute a complete Treatise on Our Lady from the most authoritative voice. Solid, accessible, informative, and a good foundation. The book has six additional Catecheses on Our Lady and the Holy Spirit. (Amazon UK – Amazon US)
