- Recovering a Catholic Philosophy of Elementary Education
A much-needed, incisive book that looks at elementary education from a philophic point of view, and recognizes that, in practice, education is replete with unexamined philosophical presuppositions. “. . . [accounts] for these philosophical presuppositions and [explains] the serious problems connected with them, together with a more reasonable and adequate understanding of what it is to educate the human being, from child to adult.” – James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University
- Priestly Celibacy
“The practice of celibacy has come under attack at various times in the past thirty years. The debates have sometimes obscured the great value celibacy is to the individual practitioner and to the Church. Father Stravinskas, completing the work of Kenneth Howell, has compiled an excellent presentation on the gift of celibacy from many different theological disciplines. The work addresses various aspects of the practice, from the scriptural and dogmatic, to the historical, spiritual, and practical. The work defends the practice of celibacy and highlights the benefits and fruits of the practice in the life of the Church. Clergy and laity, married andsingle, will find reading this book worthwhile both theologically and spiritually.” – Anthony Cardinal Bevilacqua, Archbishop of Philadelphia.
- Prayer in Newman
“Thanks to the skill of Father Nicholas Gregoris, the publication in English translation of Giocanni Velocci’s important work, Prayer in Newman, will bring before a wider audience a significant study. In a few pages are drawn together from Newman’s sermons and meditations, both Anglican and Catholic, his reflections on the life of prayer. Moreover, this little work reveals Newman himself to be a masterful teacher of the art of prayer and – most important – to be essentially a man of prayer. In Father Velocci’s admirable phrase, ‘prayer became the preferred occupation of Newman.’
- Newman’s Idea of a University
Contains a variety of weighty topics concerning the Catholic university in America as treated by practitioners in the field of higher education, including the Revs. Ian Ker, Stephen M. Fields, S.J., C. John McCloskey, Peter Stravinskas, and Profs. William Marshner, Alan Kors, and John Murray. It features a foreword and a conclusion by Archbishop Elden Francis Curtiss of Omaha and Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J.
- The Daughter of Eve Unfallen
Focuses on Mary’s cooperation in the work of salvation, with particular attention to what Cardinal Newman has to say on her role of mediation in her Son’s redemptive sacrifice, using his writing and theological principles to help us see he best – the truly traditional way – of both understanding and using these titles. A reference point for all who will in the future write on the subject of Our Lady, especially on her cooperation in the work of redemption.

Each chapter ends with stud questions geared toward group discussion. Perfect for Bible study, theology class, or prayer group, or simply to deepen one’s own understanding of the Church’s highest form of prayer, the Eucharistic Sacrifice.
