The American martyrology : including all the Saints and Blesseds of the Catholic Church generally venerated in the United States of America : together with the Venerables, the Servants of God, and others who died with the reputation of sanctity or martyrdom

May 11, 2016
Salvucci, Claudio R., compiler.
Merchantville, New Jersey : Arx Publishing, [2015]
xiii, 200 pages : illustrations ; 21 cm
"This work is in some ways an update to Fr. Holweck's list, and in some ways an entirely new effort."--Page ii.
"Most American Catholics are familiar with St. Katharine Drexel, St. John Neumann, St. Kateri Tekakwitha and Ven. Fulton Sheen. But have how many have heard of Bl. Lucas Tristany? Or Ven. Solanus Casey? Or Ven. Theresa Dudzik? Or Servant of God Gwen Coniker? The American Martyrology helps the faithful recall the heroic lives and deaths of dozens of men and women of God with strong connections to the United States. Arranged in calendar form, the Martyrology is, in effect, a catalog of national sanctity which assists the faithful to remember those who have died with a reputation for holiness and encourages us to "private devotion toward the Servant of God and the spontaneous spreading of his reputation of holiness or martyrdom and of intercessory power." [Sanctorum Mater, Art. 117]."--Page [4] of cover.

Total pardon : an extraordinary love story

May 3, 2016
Yazzie, Wilford, author.
[United States?] : Cowcatcher Pub., [2015]
228 pages : portraits ; 21 cm
An inmate who starts out a pen pal and ends up a husband-that's sketchy territory, but in Wil and Linda Yazzie's case, it turned out to be sacred territory. She was a devoted Christian. He was a hopeless alcoholic whose addictions robbed him of decades of his life, yet he goes from career criminal to Hollywood actor and devoted minster with a message. If it weren't for the unconditional love and faithful prayers of his wife, Linda, Wil would be dead-like most of his drinking buddies. Total Pardon is an extraordinary, true reversal-of-destiny story that offers radical hope for those struggling with addiction.
