New Encyclical on Hope

We just received word that the Pope's newest document, Spe Salvi (Saved in Hope), will be available for purchase by mid-January. Call 650-369-4390 to reserve your copy today!

By the way, we also published and carry the books of the late Cardinal Van Thuan, which Pope Benedict refers to in his encyclical letter. In the 1970s, Van Thuan was imprisoned by the Vietnamese government for 13 years (several of which he spent in solitary confinement). His story, recounted in Testimony of Hope, is one of incredible courage and faith. Also, Testimony of Hope contains the spiritual exercises that Van Thuan preached to John Paul II's papal household. It makes for ideal Lenten reading!
