Instant New York Times Bestseller!

New York Times Bestseller!
Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week will debut March 27 as a New York Times Bestseller!

This sensational news comes as acclaim for the Pope’s second volume on Christ’s life continues to grow.

“It’s a remarkable achievement,” said Protestant scholar Dr. Craig A. Evans of Acadia Divinity College, Acadia University, in Wolfville, N.S., Canada. “It’s the best book I’ve read on Jesus in years. This is a book that I think all Christians should read, be they Protestant or Catholic.”

“This book fulfills Pope Benedict’s ardent desire – that it would ‘be helpful to all readers who seek to encounter Jesus and to believe in him,’” said Capuchin Fr. Thomas G. Weinandy (O.F.M., Cap.), Executive director of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Secretariat for Doctrine.

  1. Blessed be the Name of Jesus:

    opens our eyes to see Love
    opens our ears to hear Love
    opens our hearts to find Love
    opens our hands to give Love
    opens our arms to accept all in Love
    opens our intellect to understand Love
    opens our souls to the wellsprings of Love

    bends our knees to the name of Love
    bends our will to the Holy Will of Love
    bends our intentions and desires for only Love
    bends our appetites into zeal for Love
    bends the self to deny oneself for Love

    -raises the hope of the lost and the wretched in the forgiveness and Mercy of the God of Love
    -raises the created creature through adoption to be children of God as the Son of Love
    -raises the moral standard to the denial of the self even unto death for another as He loved
    -raises humanity from the privations of the spirit to nourish them with His Own Heart of Love
    -raises the mind to converse with Heavenly Hosts and the Most Holy Trinity of Love
    -raises the spirit marked His Own with the Cross & His Holy Spirit of Love
    -raises the human mortal to immortal soul in resplendent body to live forever with Love
