The Imitation of Christ (Burgundy Leather Edition) 

The most popular book in Christianity after the Bible, this treasured classic by Thomas a Kempis has been revised in an easy-to-read edition by Clare Fitzpatrick.

For centuries, the straightforward message has brought peace to millions of readers by showing how to follow the life of Christ, to which we are all called.

To add to the appeal, this volume is enclosed in a burgundy bonded leather cover with a zipper close, set in a larger type, and superbly illustrated. Inside are full color insets with the prayers for the Stations of the Cross and the prayers of the rosary (including the Luminous Mysteries).

12 Steps to Holiness and Salvation

The 12 virtues we must all acquire to be happy in this world and to save our souls are now explained in a beautiful, Premium UltraSoft edition book, featuring a ribbon marker and gilded page edges. 12 Steps to Holiness and Salvation is compiled from the writings of St. Alphonsus Liguori and is considered one of the classic works of spirituality. St. Alphonsus reviews the 12 key virtues: Love, Hope, Love of God, Love of Neighbor, Poverty, Chastity, Obedience, Meekness or Humility, Mortification, Recollection, Prayer, and Love of the Cross.
The author: St. Alphonsus Liguori was born in 1696 to Neapolitan nobility at Marianella, Italy. He became a lawyer after going through law school at the age of sixteen, but later decided to join the Oratory of St. Philip Neri as a seminarian. He was ordained in 1726, when he was thirty. The homilies he gave had the special ability of converting those who had fallen away from the Faith. He also founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and authored such works as The Glories of Mary, The True Spouse of Jesus Christ, Attaining Salvation, The Blessed Virgin Mary, Preparation for Death, What Will Hell Be Like?, and The Way of the Cross. After being a bishop for over a decade, St. Alphonsus Liguori died on the first of August, 1787. He was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI in 1839, and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1871. His feast is celebrated on August 1.
