  • Healing $3.00

    Healing

    None of us wants to be sick. Health is precious. Health means freedom…Health means fullness of life…Sickness on the other hand means restriction…We don’t have freedom…And so we give a great deal of energy to avoiding sickness.

  • Rejoice Always $3.00

    Jesus Calls Us to Change

    We have an interesting relationship with change. On the one hand, we’re attracted to it. We find people who change exciting… But we also have a deep desire to avoid change…We can see change might be good but down deep we might even resist change to the point of persecuting those who want us to change…

  • Forgiveness $3.00

    Forgiveness

    Peter asked Jesus about forgiveness and how many times to forgive. Seven times? “No,” Jesus said; “Seventy times!” Well, that’s a call far beyond what most of us could ever dream of doing.

  • Perfect for Lent! $8.00

    Pardon My Lenten Smile

    Daily Lenten reflections
    by Fr. Mike Manning

    Over 30 years ago, I wrote a book entitled Pardon My Lenten Smile. The book sold well. Through the years several people have told me how they still read the book each Lent. And they inevitably ask, “Why don’t you write another Lenten Smile?”

    Well, here it is…finally! I hope the book blesses you. I’ve written it with great love for Jesus and for you. If your reading helps you to love Jesus more, you’ll give me a big Lenten smile!
    – Fr. Mike
