Prayers for the New Evangelization is a book of original prayers written by sisters, the Daughters of St. Paul, known as the Media Nuns.

This book, recommended by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, will enhance personal, group and parish prayer times. You will find surprising Catholic prayers for every occasion and every means of communication.

“Spirit of God I ask you for the attitude and mind of Christ. Grant me wisdom and a discerning heart so that I may know what is good, pleasing and holy. Help me to grow in love and live the gospel. As I communicate Christ may I be transformed into Christ.”

The Power of Silence

Written as a series of reflections The Power of Silence by Cardinal Sarah reminds us that God speaks in silence.

This book helps you find practical ways to pass through the door of noise to foster interior silence such as Sacred pauses in Liturgy, early morning and evening prayer, and Eucharistic Adoration.

After 365 reflections the book concludes with a rare visit to the Grand Chartreuse Monastery where the monk’s principle endeavor is silence and solitude.

The Power of Silence is available at Pauline Books & Media 243 King Street downtown Charleston, St. Francis Shop in Columbia and St Anthony’s Bookstore in Greenville.
