Grace comprises a series of conferences given by Raphael Moss, O.P., to students at Oxford University at the end of the nineteenth century. Theologically rich and doctrinally sound, Fr. Moss’s conferences are rooted in the fertile soil of Thomistic thought, and aim at aiding the reader “to contemplate the workings of this supernatural life, to understand the sources of its power and energy, the means to which it has recourse in time of weakness and failure and the consequences of final triumph or defeat.”

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Dominican Saints
By Ambroise Gardeil, O.P.
Introduction by Romanus Cessario, O.P.
The Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Dominican Saints introduces us to a series of Dominican saints and illustrates how each saint embodies a particular beatitude and Gift of the Holy Spirit. We learn of the spirited fortitude of St. Catherine de Ricci, the exceptional prudence of St. Antoninus, and the extraordinary wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas. As Fr. Romanus Cessario, O.P., states in the Introduction: “Dominican saints characteristically labor without toil. They demonstrate the connaturality of holiness, that is, they exhibit the way that the elevated life of grace attaches itself to our human nature and capacities.”

The Living Water
By Pierre-Thomas Dehau, O.P.
Introduction by Sr. Maria of the Angels, O.P.
The Living Water, one of Fr. Pierre-Thomas Dehau’s many books, is a treatment of the contemplative life as the life of wisdom concerned with a mysterious reality, hidden and inaccessible to human powers alone. In these pages, the fruit of sixteen of his retreat conferences, Fr. Dehau guides the reader into an understanding of how to grow in union with God through charity and contemplation. The Living Water is essential reading for those who are living out a religious vocation, for those who are discerning the call to a religious vocation, and for parents who are educating their children in the school of virtue.
“This retrieval of a French spiritual classic is a welcome source of substantive spiritual refreshment in a sometimes arid contemporary landscape.” ~Daria Spezzano, Assistant Professor of Theology, Providence College
“The directness of the Dehau’s words and the depth of his message provide a treasure trove for the serious Christian longing to go forth into the heart of God.” ~Gabriel B. O’Donnell, OP, Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, Washington, DC
