As a Man Thinketh is an inspirational book by James Allen, first published in 1903. It deals with the power of thought, and particularly with the use and application of thought to create happy and prosperous circumstances. The writing is simple, so that all can easily grasp the teachings and put the methods into practice. In the earlier work, From Poverty to Power: The Realization of Prosperity and Peace, (1901) Allen emphasizes that a disciplined mind and a focus on serving others are the keys to achieving prosperity.
The January volume includes Saints Almachius, Euphrosyne, Fulgentius, Felix of Bourges, Peter of Atroa, Odilo, Hugolino of Gualdo, Macarius of Alexandria, Vincentian, Stephana Quinzani, Peter Balsam, Genevieve, Bertilia of Mareuil, and Pharaildis.
The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ is an account of the events leading up to the crucifixion of Christ, dictated by a 19th-century German stigmatic and visionary, Anne Catherine Emmerich. Emmerich was nearly illiterate, so she dictated the text to the poet Clemens Brentano. The narrative contains many small details that do not occur in the Gospel narratives, and the sublime poetics and lofty imagery in the book have led scholars to suspect that Brentano may have embellished Anne’s descriptions as he write them down.
Alban Butler (1710 - 1773) was a professor of philosophy and theology. His opus magnum, The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs and Other Principal Saints was first published in four volumes in London, 1756-1759 after 30 years’ research. Down the ages, Roman Catholics have turned to the lives of the saints for inspiration and hope. The lives of the saints are also important as well-documented sources for the study of cultural, social and religious history. The volume for December includes Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Stephen, St. Sylvester, St. Bibiana, St. Nicholas, and St. Ambrose.
Volume 2 of The Lives of the Saints contains information on events and saints like St. Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch, Bridget, Patroness of Ireland, Sigebert II, French King of Austrasia, The Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Laurence, Archbishop of Canterbury, Wereburge, Patroness of Chester, Isidore of Pelusium, Priest, The Martyrs of Japan, the Martyrs of Pontus under Diocletian, Barsanuphius, Tresain, Attracta, Scholastica, Soteris, and many more.
Alban Butler's Lives of the Saints is one of the most revered Catholic books after the Bible, the Missal, and The Imitation of Christ. Written in the early 19th century by Butler, an English convert to Catholicism, the collection is organized by date, which makes the work easy to use for those who want to deepen their devotion to the Saints. Each biographical entry is followed by a lesson to help believers apply the virtues of that saint to their own lives.
Saint Athanasius (c. 296 - 298 - 2 May 373) was the 20th bishop of Alexandria. He was a fierce Trinitarian and a champion of orthodoxy who opposed four Roman emperors and many prominent churchmen of his time. This work begins with the creation, making it clear that the redeeming Word is also the Word which creates. Athanasius contends that the Godhead is present in every particle of creation, and especially in the person of Jesus Christ who is The Word. In his view of atonement, Jesus is the Christus Victor - the hero who defeats Satan and, thereby, destroys death.
The Soul of Prayer was written by P. T. Forsyth (1848 - 1921), a British Nonconformist minister and author of 25 books and 260 articles. In this work, the author discusses the philosophical and scriptural principles relating to the prayer life of believers. He expounds on the inwardness, the naturalness, and the timelessness of prayer, and considers the vicariousness and the insistency of the practice. The Soul of Prayer serves as an in-depth resource for the earnest seeker on how to cultivate and maintain a fruitful prayer life.
Thus Spake Zarathustra is a philosophical novel by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The work’s hybrid narrative encompasses philosophical sayings, fiction, and poetry, and also serves as a parody of and amendment to the Bible. The plot, a chronicle of fictitious speeches and travels attributed to the ancient sage Zarathustra or Zoroaster, emerges only sporadically throughout the text. Quite different from the historical figure, Nietzsche’s Zarathustra turns morality around and severely criticizes religion, which he views as "the worship of death".
