The Once and Future Roman Rite
Returning to the Traditional Latin Liturgy

after Seventy Years of Exile
Peter Kwasniewski, PhD
The prominent identifying traits of the classical Roman Rite—and indeed of all traditional rites, Eastern and Western—are absent from the
Novus Ordo, estranging it from their company and making it impossible to call it “the Roman rite.” To respond to this crisis of rupture, we must return fully to the Tridentine Rite, the Roman rite in its robust perennial richness, for which no special permission  is or could ever be needed.

Spiritual Direction from Dante
Yearning for Paradise
Father Paul Pearson
Spiritual Direction from Dante: Yearning for Heaven is more than a guide to the last book of Dante’s Divine Comedy. It is an introduction and an invitation to eternal happiness, an invitation that is just as compelling as it was 700 years ago when Dante wrote it.

A Tale of Death and Glory
The Acts of St Sebastian and His Companions
St Ambrose of Milan
The heroic examples of Saint Sebastian and his companions inspired others to follow the Lamb of God, even to the point of death, giving their lives as holocausts to the one, true living God rather than worship devils. It is only fitting that another great saint from Milan, Saint Ambrose, detailed the courage and fidelity of these brave soldiers. This book will compel you to stay firm in your faith amidst the growing threats of persecution from secular authorities and to seek heaven with renewed vigour, for “this earthly life passes quickly, like a fleeting dream.”

All are invited to bring the salty balm of the sea into their home—indeed, into their souls—with this title that enkindles in us a new awareness and appreciation for the majesty and splendour of God and his creation. Includes the characteristically beautiful photography readers have come to know and appreciate from the series that captures home life, nature, family, and of course, the sea.
