JACINTA: The Flower of Fatima
Written shortly after the apparitions, the account here relies on the memory of eyewitnesses and on the words of Lucia herself, who had been interviewed for this book. This is a moving account of the life of the youngest saint of Fatima.
Jacinta, newly canonized in March 2017, is unique among the seers of Fatima in her childlike enthusiasm to fulfil Mary’s request, that they love God and offer reparation for sin. From then, Jacinta’s life was consumed by an atoning love which made sacrifices of the biggest and the smallest things she experienced. Despite much persecution and suffering at the hands of both strangers and family, this little girl overcame her fears and attachments and became a saint, offering her life for love of Jesus and Mary.

MIRACLES ON MOTIONS: Living a Purposeful Life
Antonio Martinez Jr., SJ, with David Warden
Miracle in Motion is Father TJ's last will and testament to the kids he helped pluck out of the barrios of Houston and put on a path to success they never imagined was possible through education. It is a memoir that teaches by revealing his own failures, disappointments, and struggle to find purpose in his life.
Father TJ informs the kids and their parents what hard work can accomplish, but also teaches the elite—the CEOs of large corporations, and the investment bankers, lawyers and accountants who serve them—the value of opening the doors to a better life for all, especially the forgotten smart kids of the ghetto.

FOUR WOMEN DOCTORS OF THE CHURCH: Hildegard of Bingen, Catherine of Siena, Teresa of Ávila, Thérèse of Lisieux
Mary T. Malone
Our women have been recognized by the Vatican as Doctors of the Church and thus form a part of the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. Here, theologian Mary T. Malone explores the stories of these visionaries, introducing us to the wisdom of Hildegard of Bingen; the compassion of Catherine of Siena; the writings of Teresa of Ávila; and finally, the heartfelt “Little Way” of the much-loved Thérèse of Lisieux.
This work brings to life the trials and triumphs of these inspiring women, whose bravery and intellectual prowess opened the door for new discussions on the role of women in the Church.
