Our unique Advent reflection devotional book, called Maranatha: The Story of Our Savior explores the theme of Who Our Lord Jesus is and Who He is in our lives.
“We will contemplate Our Lord and Who He is in our lives. He is moving mysteriously in our lives, and we have to make time for the silence in which to know Him more fully this Advent and every day.” // Jenna Guizar
Every week follows the same cadence:
+ A rich and dense Scripture passage to guide us through the week’s theme
+ A theological essay by our Theological Editor, Susanna Spencerr
+ Three days of Scripture reflection and questions by Beth Davis
+ Two days of narratives by either Megan Hjelmstad, Chika Anywanu, Beth Davis, or Sister Maria Kim Bui
+ Saturdays, a guided meditation to take to prayer before the Blessed Sacrament by Nell O’Leary
We are thrilled that you will join us in this life-changing examination of Jesus in our lives.
Details: 7×9 and 66 pages with gold foiling on the soft cover.
The second item is our new book, Emmanuel: A Christmas Feast.
This Christmas season, we invite you to feast along with the Universal Church and celebrate the titles of Jesus Christ in this new book offering, Emmanuel: A Christmas Feast by Laura Kelly Fanucci. It’s the perfect way to dive deeper into Who Jesus is throughout the Christmas season.
You are offered twenty-three names of Jesus to learn more about. Every day for the entire season of Christmas, spanning Christmas to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, follows the same cadence:
+ A carefully selected Scripture passage that celebrates a different name for Jesus;
+ An original daily prayer;
+ A reflection on this name; and
+ A hymn or sermon from the early Church to deepen our reflection on the day’s name for Jesus.
Also included are feast day ideas using all of five senses to fully integrate this celebratory season into our lives.
Complete with six original full-color paintings depicting Jesus in His various roles, this beautiful hardcover book is a treasure for you and your loved ones to enjoy year after year.
