Marriage & Family Living Books
Close this window Celebrating Sunday for Catholic Families 2014-2015
Margaret M. Brennan
Celebrating Sunday for Catholic Families
provides a simple and approachable way for families to integrate what they hear at Sunday Mass into their daily lives. This resource encourages family attendance at Mass by providing parents with an explanation of the Sunday Gospel, prompts for family conversation and reflection in the car on the way to and from Mass, and suggestions for simple family activities.

“For parents constantly on the go, this reflection on the Sunday Gospel readings is a wonderful tool that can be used in the car, in the kitchen, or in a favorite family gathering spot in your home to be the kick-off for preparing the family for Sunday Mass. Celebrating Sunday for Catholic Families gives a quick rundown on the Gospel story, a brief reflection on its impact on life, and ways of thinking about the story as a family as you go to and from church. Using this tool is a great way to help the family share at a deeper level about the Liturgy of the Word, naturally incorporating the Word into the family conversation.”
Esther S. Hicks, Office of Catholic Schools, Archdiocese of Chicago

Paperback, 5 1/4 x 8 3/8, 128 pages (Item #*LTP-CSCF15) $5.00
God's Little Devotional Book for Couples
There is perhaps no greater joy than sharing "moments of the soul" with a spouse--reading a passage from the Scriptures together or reading to each other words of inspiration that can brighten a day, give encouragement and cause a smile or tug at the heart. We encourage you to read these devotionals together as a couple. Perhaps one a day. Perhaps several at a time. Take turns reading to each other. Talk about what was said, if you desire, or let the words speak for themselves. Take joy in your relationship. Marriage is a relationship of highest value. Keep yours strong, alive and fresh. Above all, we encourage you to spend some time in prayer together on a daily basis. It is in prayer that hearts are truly knit together as one. 3210 pages. Hardcover (Item #82934) $14.99

Sex and the Marriage Covenant: A Basis for Morality
by John Kippley
The thesis of this book is that God intends that sexual intercourse should be at least implicitly a renewal of the marriage covenant. From this it follows that the marriage covenant provides the criterion to evaluate the morality of every sexual act. Thus the title, Sex and the Marriage Covenant, is an appropriate description of the book’s contents. Marriage comes into being by a couple unreservedly entering God's covenant of marriage; contraceptive intercourse contradicts the very essence of the marriage covenant. From these considerations, Kippley developed the covenant theology of sexuality described in this book.

Because We Love Them: Fostering Christian Sexuality in Our Children
by Sheree Whitters Havlik
Yes, you can (and you must) talk with your kids about sex! The most difficult subject for parents is our children?s understanding of sexuality?we want to keep them pure and innocent for as long as we can. It?s hard to know how to talk about sexuality with them when the time comes. Especially from Christian point of view. We?re often unsure. When is the right time? How should I begin? Drawing from years of experience as both a parent and a counselor for teens, Sheree Havlik can help. She reminds us that we must raise our children to share our Christian approach to sexuality and all that this encompasses. With knowledge, passion, and a friendly, conversational style, Havlik convinces us that we can be our children?s primary source of information on sexuality. She helps us see that every stage of our children?s development provides opportunity for sharing our values: from general understandings of right and wrong when they are young, to modesty and respect for others as they grow; from having "the talk" as they mature, to follow-up conversations with them as they reach adulthood and leave home. Her humor and understanding help us relax and find our own answers to the questions of when, and how. Once you?ve read this book, you?ll have a surer sense of when and how to talk about sexuality with your kids. You already know why: Because you love them.

The book is a collection of meditations on common areas of concern for parents and teens. Each observation is initiated by a mother who has teenage children, followed by her teens responding with their own commentaries on the subject. Appropriate Scripture passages are suggested for further reflection, as well. Among the topics included are: driving; arrogance; worry; chaperoning; clutter; and information overload. Anyone living in a household with teens will enjoy and profit from the honesty shared in this book.

First Comes Love: Finding Your Family in the Church and the Trinity
by Scott Hahn
Scott Hahn has the rare ability to explain the essential teachings of Catholicism in a totally accessible manner. Rather than burdening the reader with difficult or arcane references and arguments, he writes of familiar feelings and situations and allows the theology to unfold naturally. In First Comes Love, Hahn turns his attention to the search for a sense of belonging, revealing the intimate connection between the families men and women create on earth and the divine family, the Holy Trinity.

Delving into the Gospels, Hahn shows that family terminology--words like brother, sister, mother, father, and home--dominates Jesus' speech and the writings of His first followers, and that these very words illuminate Christianity's central ideas. As he explores the fatherhood of God, the marriage of the Church to Christ, and the all-enveloping role of the Holy Spirit, Hahn deepens readers' understanding of the sacraments, teaches them how to create a family life in the image of the Trinity, and demonstrates the ways in which the analogy of the family applies to every aspect of Catholicism and its practices--from the role of "father" embodied by the ancient patriarchs and contemporary parish priests, to the comfort and guidance offered by the brothers and sisters who comprise the Communion of Saints, to the nurturing embrace of Mary, the mother of all Christians.

Through real-life examples (both humorous and compassionate) and quotations drawn from the Scriptures, Hahn makes it clear that no matter what sort of family readers come from--no matter what sort of "dysfunction" they have experienced--they can find a family in the Church. Reaching out to newcomers and to lifelong Christians alike, First Comes Love is an invitation to discover a true home in the divine. Hardcover

About the Revision
The USCCB undertook the revision of Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers for several reasons. The liturgical calendar was outdated. Booksellers had been requesting a more substantial binding, suitable for gift-giving. We wanted to include some of the newer prayers by Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI as well as some prayers published by the USCCB. In addition, we added new prayers for stewardship, vocations, retirement, and the like. An entirely new thematic section of Scripture excerpts was added as well. The revision includes a Scripture index and a first line index to make it easier to use. As such, the revised text is substantially longer than the current edition. It will be bound in bonded leather with gold stamping, and colored end papers, and includes a presentation page. The Scripture excerpts used are taken from the Lectionary for Mass or the Liturgy of the Hours. Hardcover, 528 pages (Item #94840) $34.95
