Too busy to pray? Here's the answer. . .

Do you want to grow closer
to God, but feel you lack the time?

Are housework and family responsibilities
keeping you from meditation and prayer?

If you feel you're too busy for God,
then you need a strategy for finding
God in the things you already do every day.

Essential reading for busy Catholics,
Strength in Simplicity doesn't burden
you with new or complicated ways of praying.

Rather, it gives you what
you need: a simple way to grow
close to God in your life's activities.

You'll find the secrets of practicing
simplicity — a deceptively difficult
spiritual discipline made easy here.

You'll learn to practice it toward God,
toward others, and even within yourself:
in the holy silence of your own soul.

Let Strength in Simplicity bring the
calming, transforming virtue of
simplicity into every part of your busy life.

Let it teach you how to direct all
things to God and show you the new
ways you can be aware of His presence.

Don't rush through life
without this saving message!

Strength in Simplicity reveals to you:
  • True simplicity: how it isn't willful ignorance or simple-mindedness
  • Your intentions: are they pure? Why this could be the most important question you'll ever answer
  • Two advantages of simplicity: what you'll gain by cleaning your life of complications
  • How simplicity can make you generous, courageous, and more loving
  • Failure: your attitude toward it may be crippling your spiritual life. Find out how
  • The most dreaded enemy of your soul's progress: is it keeping you from deepening your happiness and love for God?
  • Two indispensable qualities for beginners in the spiritual life: do you have them?
  • And much more to help you simplify your life and come closer to God

She's the simple peasant girl they call the Queen of Heaven. She's the Lord's humble servant, yet an icon of womanly strength. She's ever virgin and the mother of all. Sinners fly to her, but an angel bowed!
She's Mary, the mother of Jesus: the most recognized woman in history. And the most misunderstood!

Many Protestants grudgingly acknowledge that someone had to bear the Savior, but they otherwise regard Mary as an ordinary, sinful woman.

Even if you're a Catholic who grew up with a statue of Mary next to your bed, you probably don't understand her as well as you think — or should.
  • Do you know the Church's four essential Marian doctrines?
  • Do you know how these doctrines are rooted in Scripture and Sacred Tradition?
  • Can you explain the difference between the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth?
  • Can you share the messages and secrets of Mary's most famous apparitions?
Meet Mary: Getting to Know the Mother of God is a slim volume written by renowned Marian expert Mark Miravalle, and it will help you answer these questions — and more!

After reading these pages, you'll know the faithful truth about this woman of contradictions: everything the Bible says about her, what the early Christians believed, and each of the key teachings the Church has proclaimed about her for 2,000 years!

Even more important — for Mary herself desires to be known intimately, not academically — you'll learn how to enter into a personal relationship with her. You'll come to regard her not as a distant and unapproachable figure in the heavens, but as a real friend and mother.

Most of all, you'll become a better disciple of Jesus. For the Son commands us to imitate Him in all things — including perfect love of His Mother.
