Easter Bunny's Amazing Day
From the heart of two St. Louis sisters, comes a new story of the very first Easter Bunny. Easter Bunny’s Amazing Day introduces young children everywhere to a fearful bunny who has an amazing experience on the first Easter morning that changes him forever. In his own words, the Bunny shares his story; a tale of action, adventure, miracles and great love—all beautifully illustrated by Saint Louis artist, Jonathan Sundy.

The response to the tale so far has been remarkable. As it turns out- this book is appealing to the heart of the child of any age. Adults are saying, “I never teared up before reading a children’s book.” A mother writes, “My children were immediately drawn into this story by the beautiful and endearing illustrations. This narrative is a wonderful way to communicate the religious meaning of Easter through our cultural idea of the Easter Bunny. It will be a favorite in our house for years to come!” An older man with some dementia is now reading the book two to three times a day because it calms him. Pre-school and elementary teachers love the book themselves and are grateful to finally have this unique story of the first Easter that includes everyone’s favorite bunny. Even a ten year old boy commented, “This is a good book.”

First time authors, Carol Benoist and Cathy Gilmore are delighted! They set out to write a simple story, but they just might be transforming the way that young children experience Easter. For every child who is stuffing his or her cheeks with jelly beans and chocolate bunny ears, it’s as if the sisters lean in to whisper, “But wait, there’s more…” Easter Bunny’s Amazing Day is a gift to us all.

front cover The Jesus Garden
Antoinette Bosco's wonderful book for children examines the passion of Jesus Christ from the perspective of the plants and animals who fill his favorite garden. The opening pages of the book enable this love story to play out, introducing us to the dogwoods, the robin, the heart-shaped flowers, and of course their special friend Jesus.

As the story plays out, we follow the Passion story from the moment of the agony in the Garden, through the Crucifixion, and ultimately Jesus' Resurrection. Most children's books that I've seen on this topic can be rather frightening, but Bosco and illustrator Patricia Mattozzi have managed to relay the story of Jesus' death in a manner which is gentle and not frightening. Mattozzi's illustrations are wonderful, luminescent depictions that warm the beautiful tale Bosco has crafted.

The book's subtitle rightly calls this "An Easter Legend", for there are indeed some imaginary aspects to the story, but its main theme of Jesus Christ's transcendent love for each of us shines through. Don't save this one for Easter - it's a story to be loved all year through! (Item #83603) $15.95

Ministry Ideas for Celebrating Lent and Easter with Teens, Families, and Parishes
by Judy Dankert, Marilyn Kielbasa, Marie Sajsa

Like all of us, adolescents have a deep hunger for God. They have a need to make sense out of life and a desire to make the world a better place. They are people of endless hope, and have the capacity for deep sadness and profound joy. Their hungers, needs, hopes, and moments of sadness and joy mirror the experiences of biblical characters we meet during Lent and the Easter season. To meet the challenge of making Lent and the Easter season meaningful, parish and youth ministry efforts need to be intentional about bringing alive the Scriptures for each Sunday and special commemoration of the season.

Ministry Ideas for Celebrating Lent and Easter with Teens, Families, and Parishes is a resource manual that provides activities for gathered sessions with youth in parish settings, as well as ideas for meaningful ways to observe the season with families and friends at home and in the community. At the core of the manual are gathered sessions with youth that are lectionary based, using themes from the Scriptures. Some sessions are specific to a particular Sunday in one liturgical cycle. Others are more thematically inclusive and may be used with all cycles. In addition to the gathered sessions, supplementary activities for the season include a guided meditation, a service project, and discussion activities that may be used in a variety of ways throughout the season. Also included are two chapters designed specifically for families. Each chapter contains several activities that will help families share faith stories and create memories. These activities can be sent home or adapted for use in a gathered environment. Paperback (Item #88609) $24.95

The Way of the Cross for Children
by Christopher Walker and Paule Freeburg, DC
Illustrated by Jean Germano

2004 UNITY AWARD: Children's Music Album of the Year

Praying the Stations of the Cross is an especially powerful way to enter into the meaning of Christ's Passion. This longstanding Lenten devotion involves both our imagination and emotions. It helps us appreciate Christ's sacrifice, relating it to the struggles in our own lives. Of course, children need this as well as adults.

Known for their popular Stories and Songs of Jesus series, Christopher and Sister Paule have collaborated once again to create The Way of the Cross for Children. Based on Scripture, this new resource offers responses, Bible readings, reflections, artwork and songs for each of the 14 stations, all in a format that's easy for children to follow.

Children may be involved not only in the singing but also in the Scripture readings, with a teacher or catechist leading the reflections. An optional "Resurrection" station is provided, which may be performed with the other stations or done on its own after Easter. The songs, all composed by Christopher Walker, include guitar and keyboard accompaniment parts, available in the Leader's Guide. The CD can serve as a helpful learning tool or for background accompaniment.

The Children's Book features spectacular, full-color artwork for each station, giving you the flexibility of leading the devotion in the classroom, at home or in church.

Laminated posters featuring each of the 14 stations (and one displaying all 14) can be placed around the classroom. The posters can also serve as placards to be held by children during the Stations of the Cross. Bookmarks with the same artwork will also be available.

A complete, one-of-a-kind resource — gives you everything you need to lead children in this devotion

Includes music for veneration of the cross on Good Friday (songbook only) and music for processing from one station to another

Designed for children in grades K-8

A Lenten Journey
The Stories and Scriptures of Lent in Song
Bob Hurd & Anawin

This first new collaboration of Bob Hurd and Anawim (Barbara Bridge, John Gilb, Marie Hodgson and Dominic MacAller) in 13 years provides a comprehensive musical repertoire for the Lenten season, from Ash Wednesday through the Fifth Sunday. It offers songs for general use throughout the season, for gathering, preparation and reconciliation, as well as settings of the seasonal psalms (for Years A, B and C), all of which also appear as assigned psalms on specific Sundays.

A Lenten Journey also contains a Communion (or preparation) song for each Sunday in all three cycles — 12 songs in all — based on the Gospel and other readings. These songs highlight the shared themes and images that emerge across the three readings of each Sunday and help the assembly to a more profound "lectio divina" or prayerful hearing of the Word, even as we are receiving Christ, the Word, in Communion.

The 17 original songs feature traditional and contemporary styling. "The Good Shepherd," one of many highlights, is a rousing gospel number speaking of the One who "lays down his life for the sheep." Instrumentation ranges from simple arrangements for solo voice and piano to grand settings for trumpet, organ and choir. Includes parts for oboe and other winds, guitar, cello and other strings. Includes two songs written by Dominic MacAller and two by Barbara Bridge.

A Lenten Journey is a welcome addition to the repertoire for the holy season of Lent.

The Story of the Cross
The Stations of the Cross for Children
By Mary Joslin
Illustrator: Gail Newey
Understanding the Stations of the Cross is central to the Catholic faith. This book gently tells the story of the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. From his humble birth to his glorious triumph over death, The Story of the Cross presents the life of Jesus in simple language that children can understand. Illustrations highlight the main points and show the love of Jesus in each step of His journey.

The Story of the Cross recounts each Station of the Cross and offers a brief explanation of what happens there. In addition, a short prayer, designed to help young readers relate the story to their own lives, accompanies each station. Through the story and the prayers, children can begin to understand and appreciate the love and courage of Jesus Christ as He fulfilled His Father’s will and redeemed the world.

With a refined sense of style and sensitivity, author Mary Joslin and illustrator Gail Newey emphasize the necessity of trust, love, and forgiveness in the world. They show how good people step forward to aid those in need, and that faith in God can strengthen those who grow fearful and discouraged.

This wonderful book helps children to see that, although it may seem at times that wicked and cruel people are winning, God changes everything, bringing life and love that will never end. The Story of the Cross lays the early groundwork for a connection with the spiritual journey of Jesus that will last a lifetime. Ages 4 and up. Hardcover.

81272.jpg (15008 bytes) Easter Surprise
For ages 2 to 5, this book tells the story of Jesus' death and victorious resurrection in simple text and engaging illustrations. Questions are included to get the child involved in the story. An extra feature -- durable flaps to lift that reveal more of the story -- adds more information in the form of visuals to reinforce the facts of Good Friday and Easter.

Bright, colorful illustrations immediately capture and then hold the young child's attention. Simple and playful words tell the story. The child then gets actively involved as he hears the "who's there" question, lifts the flap, and discovers what or who is pictured under the flap. The child builds reading skills by associating the question with the illustrated answer. Additional comprehension skills are developed because the child becomes a participant in the reading -- listening to the Bible story and responding so the story can continue. This technique helps the child learn the continuity of Christ's miraculous, sacrificial act for us

Easter Surprise will encourage young children to see that Jesus went to the cross on our behalf, then rose from the grave in victory over sin, death, and devil -- also on our behalf. This book begins with the two disciples borrowing a colt for Jesus to ride into Jerusalem, continues with Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and, finally, Easter morning. Board Book.

Were You There?
A Service for Holy Week By Carla Giomo

Featuring the Cathedral Singers

Readings from Luke's Passion Gospel are interspersed with choral settings of hymns and spirituals, and the extinguishing of candles. The choral arrangements are not difficult and provide compelling commentaries on Jesus' suffering and death and on the human condition. In the composer's words, "The songs carry the theme of overcoming suffering in order to go home.

African-American spirituals are powerful testimony to a faith that can sustain hope in the face of suffering that will never end until the everlasting home is reached." This edition includes the complete order of service and the octavos which comprise the musical part of the liturgy. Choral settings are for SATB choir, soloists, and piano. Also included on this CD is Giomo's Vespers: A Service for Evening Prayer, which is useful for parishes that hold midweek Lenten worship services.

The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ
prepared and with notes by George R. Szews

This book shows how several readers can proclaim the Passion on Palm Sunday or Good Friday and do it well. Matthew is not Mark is not Luke is not John. Each account of the passion is unique. That’s the starting point in this careful and pastoral approach. Participation and understanding by the entire assembly will increase when everyone clearly hears each facet of the story on which our lives are founded. Rather than simply dividing the Passion into the parts of Narrator, Single Speaker, Christ and Crowd, this book allows the evangelist’s understanding of the Passion to be heard and pondered. An introduction and specific commentary preceding each Passion account is included. Here you’ll find proclamation tips and suggestions for musical refrains, acclamations and hymns. The cover is suitable for use in front of the assembly and, inside, the size of the type, the use of sense lines and the arrangement of the page allows for ease of proclamation by readers. The text is exactly as given in the revised lectionary.

We suggest that parishes purchase five copies per scheduled liturgy: one copy for each of the three readers, one copy for the presider and one copy for the music minister.

Paperback, 8 1/2 x 11, 48 pages. (Item #93107) $7.00

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of John
by Donald Senior, C.P.

With this volume on John the Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus' death in each of the Gospels. But though last, it is certainly not less important or a repetition of the other Gospels. In fact, John's portrayal of the death is as distinctive and unique as the rest of this "maverick" Gospel.

Father Senior explores how the rest of the Gospel prepares for the Passion story. He then gives a detailed analysis of the Passion narrative itself. Finally, he explores the theological motifs that dominate the Passion narrative. With scholarly finesse and deep pastoral awareness, he makes John's vibrant message of the Passion speak to our life and times.

". . . should be purchased now and read before John's passion is solemnly proclaimed next Good Friday."

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke
by Donald Senior, C.P.

The recent resurgence of scholarship on Luke's Gospel is due, in part, to this Gospel's special appeal for an age in which questions of economic justice, peace, and the prophetic role of the Churches questions all important in Luke are so urgent.

Father Senior's exegesis yields a strong sense of what Luke intended to communicate to his readers and, to some degree, what may have been the circumstances that shaped his message. He reveals the Luke who presents Jesus as a champion of the poor and marginalized, whose message of justice is proclaimed with a sharp prophetic edge.

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
by Donald Senior, C.P.

Which came first: a coherent Passion story or the Gospel of Mark? Contemporary biblical scholarship is divided over this issue of how, exactly, the Passion story developed.

Whatever the shape of the story prior to Mark, it must have been imprinted with Christian experience as well as historical memory. Mark, in turn, felt free to retell and reinterpret that story for his own time and place. The Passion of Jesus was not only a story from the past but also, in the sufferings and hopes of the Christians of Mark's time, a living reality of the present.

The readers of this insightful work will find that the Passion of Jesus as told by Mark continues to hold meaning for the present. Paperback, 176 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

(Item #92996) $16.95

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew
by Donald Senior, C.P.

The Word of the cross is a living word, crying out for reinterpretation as life takes new shape and expression. Reinterpreting the Gospel was particularly compelling for Matthew's church because his Christians lived in a time of profound transition. The Passion of Jesus, then, was not simply a story of suffering out of the past but a point of identification for the Christians of Matthew's own time.

For us twentieth-century Christians, who also know the peculiar suffering and hope of living in an age that is both dying and being born, the Passion of Jesus according to Matthew has special meaning. Paperback, 200 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

The Passion of the Christ and His Mother, The Linkage of Exodus and the Night of the Passover

From well-known Marian author and research professor, Dr. Courtenay Bartholomew, comes the companion book to Mel Gibson's important film "The Passion of the Christ."

"The Passion of the Christ and His Mother" is perhaps the most detailed, inspiring, and moving account of the Passion you will ever read. The author expands on the film and reproduces the unspeakable anguish of Our Lord during the last 20 hours (the movie covers the last 12 hours) of His life.

Based on revelations from the Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich and others, the book provides further insight and detail such as:

* A full account of the Last Supper
* A detailed description of the agony of Mary
* The medical aspects of the Crucifixion
* The history of the Shroud of Turin
* A theological explanation of the why the Passion was necessary
* And much more

Both Mel Gibson's film and Professor Bartholomew's companion book are sure to spark controversy and debate but above all fuel the fires of faith for years to come. 96 pages

The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ
by Anne Catherine Emmerich
This book helped inspire Mel Gibson to make the movie, "The Passion of the Christ." Faithful to the Bible story of the Passion and death of Jesus, it fills in many details and is edifying and inspiring beyond belief; plus, it is surprising and heart-rending. It will melt a heart of stone. This book is the best on the Passion we have seen. It is also wonderful on the Blessed Mother's role in our redemption. Includes a short biography of Sr. Emmerich. A great, great book for the whole family!

The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ CD
According to John
Christopher Walker

 "There is no greater love than this: To lay down your life for your friends." John 15:13

Opening with this antiphon, sung beautifully by a cappella choir, this new setting of the Passion is powerful, tender and haunting, evoking all the pathos and drama of Jesus' suffering and death. The inspiration for it, the composer explains, came from his desire to give added meaning and power to the Passion reading on Good Friday, not only to contrast with the passion reading on Palm/Passion Sunday, but also because it precedes the Veneration of the Cross.

Reverent and emotionally immediate, the music is a very appropriate setting for St. John's telling of the story. It's simple without being spare, dramatic without being melodramatic. Arranged with parts for organ, SATB choir, narrator, Jesus, Pilate, Peter, a maid, a slave and a temple guard, Walker's Passion also involves the assembly, which sings easily memorized refrains that reflects on key moments in the Passion.

This innovative setting gives a new voice to a familiar text, placing the narrator's spoken part over keyboard accompaniment and giving dramatic crowd part s to the choir. Jesus sings in contrast to Pilate, who speaks. Based on three short melodies, the part of Jesus (included in the full score) can be learned quickly by a priest or deacon. All parts, in fact, are relatively easy to learn and perform, accessible to the resources of a good parish choir.

The beautifully recorded CD reveals the dramatic potential of this music. Divided into 17 tracks, one for each of the main sequences of the Passion, it makes an excellent preparation and rehearsal tool, in addition to being inspirational listening for Lent and any time we meditate on the sorrowful mysteries of the Passion.
