Living the Mysteries: A Guide for Unfinished Christians
Scott Hahn, Mike Aquilina

Our Sunday Visitor (IN), 2003

Until we get to heaven, we’re all unfinished Christians. There are no "self-made" success stories in the spiritual life. No do-it-yourself kits for aspiring saints.

The Fathers of the Church
Mike Aquilina

Our Sunday Visitor, 2013

We hear the voices of the early Church Fathers even today. Their teachings, their guidance, their insights, and their sacrifice shaped the Catholic Church. They defined the canon of Scripture.

What can the Fathers teach the 21st century - about holiness, culture, faith, and the ...

The divine gift of the Our Father is the foundation of our life of prayer, but it is only the beginning of how Jesus leads us through himself to the Father: then as now, he teaches the Church to pray, and he does the same for us in our individual prayer lives. Shane Kapler's ...


Good Pope, Bad Pope: Their Lives, Our Lessons
Mike Aquilina

Servant Books, 2013

Why did the author pick the popes you’ll meet in the pages of this book? Why not Gregory I, whom many would call the greatest pope of all time? Why not Leo X, who was pope at the beginning of the Protestant Reformation? Why not Leo XIII, who boldly stood up for the rights of workers? Every pope is by definition a remarkable man. But the popes whose stories you’ll read here were chosen because they reveal how the papacy developed. They show ...


St. Monica and the Power of Persistent Prayer
Mike Aquilina, Mark W. Sullivan

Our Sunday Visitor, 2013

Many of us give up on prayer when we don't get the answer we want WHEN we want it. For nearly two decades, Saint Monica prayed for her wayward son. Years and years of prayers, seemingly unanswered.

That very act of persistent prayer blessed the entire Church, for we have all benefitted from the conversion of her son, Augustine, who became one of the most revered saints of all ...

Louder Than Words: The Art of Living as a Catholic
Matthew Leonard
