Mother Angelica - The Remarkable Story of a Nun (Audio Book)
In 1981, the year after Ted Turner founded CNN, a simple nun using her entrepreneurial instincts and $200 for seed money, launched what would become the world's largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama monastery. Today, EWTN offers twenty-four hours of English and Spanish television programming reaching 105 million viewers around the globe. How did a crippled nun achieve so much and reach so many? Born Rita Rizzo in Canton, Ohio, in 1923, Mother Angelica was abandoned by her father and raised in poverty by a mother who suffered suicidal depressions. Awakened to the power of prayer, at age 21 she vowed to dedicate her life to God and become a cloistered nun. She expected to spend her life hidden from the world. But Rita's faith compelled her to unlikely endeavors, accomplishing what the highest echelon of the Catholic Church could not. Raymond Arroyo was given unprecedented access to Mother Angelica's letters, diaries, medical records, family, friends and foes, as well as one-on-one interviews over a three-year period. This engrossing biography traces Mother Angelica's tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, inside and outside of her church. It is an inspiring story of survival and proof that one woman's faith can move more than mountains. Only weeks after completing the final interview for this biography, Mother Angelica suffered a stroke that stole her speech. Within are her reflections, her powerful life lessons and thoughts on her remarkable life. Includes 8 pages of pictures! "A rattling good story of fear, faith, courage, and bulldog tenacity, beautifully told. The drama of Mother Angelica's life is a powerful reminder that the extraordinary lies just beyond the ordinary - if we have eyes to see and ears to hear." - George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope: the Biography of Pope John Paul II See also: Mother Angelica - The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve, and a Network of Miracels (Book) 10 CD Audio Book read by Raymond Arroyo Approx. running time: 13 hours

Jana Harris had always dreamed of having a horse farm, and she knew the horse on whom she could build her dreams the moment she saw her on a ranch in the Eastern Mountains of Washington State, where a herd had been corralled to be sold: a beautiful, deep dark red-colored mare standing about sixteen hands, with a white star on her pretty head. Something about the way this mare guarded her handsome foal spoke to Harris. The mare was named True Colors. When True Colors was delivered to Harris's ranch three months later, however, she was unrecognizable: head-shy from the infected sores on her face, and lungs damaged by pneumonia, she sensed demons hiding in everything from the scent of fabric softener on clothes to a gate in a fence. This injured, traumatized horse existed between two worlds-wild and domesticated-and belonged to neither. Remarkably, the other horses fell in love with her on sight. And true to her name, True Colors would never pretend to be something she was not; with her wise, intuitive nature, she would end up changing the lives of everyone she encountered. This is the story of True Colors and how, with her quiet wisdom, she became the heart of the range and farm. There is a famous horseman's saying: A horse never lies about its pain. But maybe we should also consider: A horse never lies about love.

The 14th Gemina Martia Victrix Legion was the most celebrated unit of the early Roman Empire-a force that had been wiped out under Julius Caesar, reformed, and almost wiped out again. After participating in the a.d. 43 invasion of Britain, the 14th Legion achieved its greatest glory when it put down the famous rebellion of the Britons under Boudicca. Numbering less than 10,000 men, the disciplined Roman killing machine defeated 230,000 rampaging rebels, slaughtering 80,000 with only 400 Roman losses-an accomplishment that led the emperor Nero to honor the legion with the title "Conqueror of Britain." In this gripping book, second in the author's definitive histories of the legions of ancient Rome, Stephen Dando-Collins brings the 14th Legion to life, offering military history aficionados a unique soldier's-eye view of their tactics, campaigns, and battles.

Vows: The Story of a Priest, a Nun, and Their Son

$53.31
View Product


The 1950s was a boom time for the Catholic Church in America, with large families of devout members providing at least one son or daughter for a life of religious service. Boston was at the epicenter of this explosion, and Bill Manseau and Mary Doherty - two eager young parishioners from different towns - became part of a new breed of clergy, eschewing the comforts of homey parishes and choosing instead to minister to the inner-city poor. Peter Manseau's riveting evocation of his parents' parallel childhoods, their similar callings, their experiences in the seminary and convent, and how they met while tending to the homeless of Roxbury during the riot-prone 1960s is a page-turning meditation on the effect that love can have on profound faith. Once married, the Manseaus continued to fight for Father Bill's right to serve the church as a priest, and it was into this situation that Peter and his siblings were born and raised to be good Catholics while they witnessed their father's personal conflict with the church's hierarchy. A multigenerational tale of spirituality, Vows also charts Peter's own calling, one which he tried to deny even as he felt compelled to consider the monastic life, toying with the idea of continuing a family tradition that stretches back over 300 years of Irish and French Catholic priests and nuns. It is also in Peter's deft hands that we learn about a culture and a religion that has shaped so much of American life, affected generations of true believers, and withstood great turmoil. Vows is a compelling tale of one family's unshakable faith that to be called is to serve, however high the cost may be.

On Valentine's Day 1985, biologist Stacey O'Brien adopted Wesley, a baby barn owl with an injured wing who could not have survived in the wild. Over the next nineteen years, O'Brien studied Wesley's strange habits with both a tender heart and a scientist's eye-and provided a mice-only diet that required her to buy the rodents in bulk (28,000 over the owl's lifetime) . She watched him turn from a helpless fluff ball into an avid com-municator with whom she developed a language all their own. Eventually he became a gorgeous, gold-and-white macho adult with a heart-shaped face who preened in the mir-ror and objected to visits by any other males to "his" house. O'Brien also brings us inside Caltech's prestigious research community, a kind of scientific Hogwarts where resident owls sometimes flew freely from office to office and eccentric, brilliant scientists were extraordinarily committed to studying and helping animals; all of them were changed by the animals they loved. As O'Brien gets close to Wesley, she makes astonishing discoveries about owl behavior, intelligence, and communication, coining the term "The Way of the Owl" to describe his noble behavior. When O'Brien develops her own life-threatening ill-ness, the biologist who saved the life of a helpless baby bird is herself rescued from death by the insistent love and courage of this wild animal. Enhanced by wonderful photographs, "Wesley the Owl" is a thoroughly engaging, heart-warming, often funny story of a complex, emotional, non-human being capable of reason, play, and, most important, love and loyalty. Translated into eight languages and named an "Audubon Magazine" Editor's Choice, "Wesley the Owl" is sure to be cherished by animal lovers everywhere.

Locked away, but not silenced. Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh knew they were putting their lives on the line. Though Islamic laws in Iran forbade them from sharing their Christian beliefs, in three years they'd covertly put New Testaments into the hands of 20,000 of their countrymen. They'd started two secret house churches, including one for prostitutes - many of whom were women abandoned by their husbands with no other way to support themselves and their children. Maryam and Marziyeh had almost been caught so many times that it felt like divine intervention. But finally - perhaps inevitably - the two women were arrested in 2009 and held the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran. There, inmates are routinely tortured, and executions are swift and sudden. But in the face of chilling interrogation, intimidation, and a possible death sentence, something remarkable happened. Instead of succumbing to fear, they chose to take the radical - and dangerous - step of sharing their faith inside the very walls of the government stronghold that was meant to silence them. In "Captive in Iran," Maryam and Marziyeh recount how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to bring about a miraculous reversal: shining light into one of the world's darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything, and showing love to those in despair.

Washed in the Blood is an inspiring story of life, loss, hope, suffering and eventually transcendence. It is equal measures heartbreaking and inspiring. However, the secret weapon is the tongue-in-cheek humor. Humor has always been a means of coping with the pain in life. In fact, humor helps convey the central message which is that you can endure a personal tragedy and remain vitally absorbed in the business of living. Life tears open everyone. The key is to come back a little stronger in those torn places. Washed in the Blood is much more than a heartbreaking tale about life's problems. This is a story about the courage of the human spirit and triumph over remarkable circumstances.

Have you ever lost a pet and been shocked and devastated by that loss? Have you been asking difficult questions-do animals have souls, do they live on in any way after death, and will I ever see my pet again? Walking with the Shadow of Love is a book that delves deeply into these questions and mysteries, and provides convincing evidence that the answers to the above questions are all "yes." It tells the true story of two working therapy dogs, one a purebred and one from a puppy mill: an extraordinary young dog-who found his way to the author, even though he didn't start out as hers-and was suddenly, in the prime of his life, stricken by a fast-moving and deadly cancer. The book follows the author and her heroic veterinary oncologist's attempts to give the young dog a quality life for as long as they can, and as this battle is fought, dogs and owner form a bond so strong that even death cannot break it. There is also a lesson in the importance of living each day and moment in full awareness and gratitude. When the battle for this exceptional dog's life seemed to be truly lost, a series of remarkable occurrences began that added an amazing new dimension to this profound human/animal relationship, and will change your whole way of thinking about animals. This beautiful book is illustrated by the author, and contains photographs by the author and others. As early readers of this account have pointed out, this story shows that our spiritual connection with our pets cannot be broken. ever They are still there, comforting us, guiding us, and eventually meeting us in a better place. Our loved ones, animal and human, are always with us, and we are always with them-walking with their shadows and their love. "A touching testimonial for animal lovers who've experienced deep connections with their pets." -Kirkus Reviews

Doris Herrmann was born deaf in 1933 in Basel, Switzerland, and from the age of three, she possessed a mystical attraction to kangaroos. She recalls seeing them at that age for the first time at the Basel Zoo, and spending every spare moment visiting them from then on. Eventually, her fascination grew into passionate study of their behavior. Her dedication caught the attention of the zookeepers who provided her greater access to these extraordinary animals. Despite her challenges with communication, Herrmann wrote a scientific paper about the kangaroo's pouch hygiene when raising a joey. Soon, experts from around the world came to visit this precocious deaf girl who knew about kangaroos. Herrmann appreciated the opportunities opening up to her, but her real dream was to travel to Australia to study kangaroos in the wild. For years she worked and yearned, until Dr. Karl H. Winkelstrater a renowned authority on kangaroos, suggested an independent study in Australia at a place called Pebbly Beach. In 1969, at the age of 35, Herrmann finally traveled to the native land of kangaroos. During the next four decades, she would make many more trips to observe and write about kangaroos. "My Life with Kangaroos" explores every facet of Herrmann's connection to these engaging marsupials. Her single-minded devotion not only made her a leading self-made scholar on kangaroos, it transformed her own personality and her relationships with others. As she forged bonds with kangaroos named Dora, Jacqueline, Manuela, and many others, she engendered great affection and respect in the people around her, truly a remarkable story of success.

The Woman Who Can't Forget: The Extraordinary Story of Living With the Most Remarkable Memory Known to Science

$14.70

Jill Price has the first diagnosed case of a memory condition called "hyperthymestic syndrome" - the continuous, automatic, autobiographical recall of every day of her life since she was fourteen. Give her any date from that year on, and she can almost instantly tell you what day of the week it was, what she did on that day, and any major world event or cultural happening that took place, as long as she heard about it that day. Her memories are like scenes from home movies, constantly playing in her head, backward and forward, through the years; not only does she make no effort to call her memories to mind, she cannot stop them. "The Woman Who Can't Forget" is the beautifully written and moving story of Jill's quest to come to terms with her extraordinary memory, living with a condition that no one understood, including her, until the scientific team who studied her finally charted the extraordinary terrain of her abilities. Her fascinating journey speaks volumes about the delicate dance of remembering and forgetting in all of our lives and the many mysteries about how our memories shape us. As we learn of Jill's struggles first to realize how unusual her memory is and then to contend, as she grows up, with the unique challenges of not being able to forget - remembering both the good times and the bad, the joyous and the devastating, in such vivid and insistent detail - the way her memory works is contrasted to a wealth of discoveries about the workings of normal human memory and normal human forgetting. Intriguing light is shed on the vital role of what's called "motivated forgetting"; as well as theories about childhood amnesia, the loss of memory for the first two to three years of our lives; the emotional content of memories; and the way in which autobiographical memories are normally crafted into an ever-evolving and empowering life story. Would we want to remember so much more of our lives if we could? Which memories do our minds privilege over others? D
