+  Bored Again Catholic: How the Mass Could Save Your Life

  • Description: Are you BORED? Not likely, given the endless opportunities today to see, share, post, watch, and like. So are you bored? No way! (Except maybe at Mass.) We want the Mass to entertain, make us laugh, give us foot tapping music and sound-bite theology, and get it done in under an hour. Yet every Sunday many of us tune out. Author Tim O’Malley, in a series of reflections on every part of the Mass, challenges us to turn the idea of boredom on its head, calling boredom—the “good” boredom that opens us to the quiet interior space where we can encounter God—a “sweet gift.”

+  Gift of Death: A Message of Comfort and Hope

  • Description: Do you fear death? Our last breath on earth is followed immediately by our first breath in eternity, and for many, the distance between those breaths is full of fear and uncertainty. Through the use of personal stories and insightful conversations, Monica Hannan has opened for us a light into an often dark subject. Her natural gift for storytelling and her in-depth interviews with those who have experienced death, either their own or the deaths of those close to them, offer proof not only that our lives do not end here, but that there is no need to fear our final hours or what comes next. For those who put their trust in God, death truly is a gift, as we close our eyes in this world and open them in the next.
