    Anne Stricherz - Apr 13, 2015

  • The Triduum: The Close of Our Lenten Journey

    W. P. Bennett - Apr 3, 2015

    Anne Stricherz - Mar 2, 2015

  • Lent and the Temptations of Christ

    Maureen Dillon - Feb 16, 2015

Letter Lessons

The newest addition to The Cora Evans Library. “If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily, and follow Me” (Lk 9:23). Being a Catholic Christian is a call to action. Our God is not passive or indifferent or lukewarm. He is active, involved, and on fire. And He is vying with the devil for your soul. Following Jesus takes perseverance, self-denial, trust, and total commitment. This is not a book about Jesus; it’s about you and how you open yourself to Him in ways you’ve never even considered.”



The reflections of Cora Evans included in Gems reveal many new details about Catholic truths, deeper knowledge of theological truths, and new light and evidence to the deposit of faith, especially regarding the humanity of Christ, the Holy Eucharist and the indwelling of Christ.

Frank, preached on the syndicated “Catholic Quarter Hour” radio program. He selected his favorite talks to be published in this book, Sparks from His Heart.
