Sanctify my Heart
A Scriptural Novena to the Holy Spirit [$4.00]

by Christine Haapala, Author of the Best Selling Children's Scriptural Rosary
Speak Lord, I am Listening
Illustrations by James Reid
48 pages; 5" by 7"

Suffering has redemptive value when we recognize God�s mighty Hand in the events and offer our day to Him. Accepting God�s will in all suffering is a sacrificial prayer by sharing in the sacrifice at Calvary. Christine Haapala�s tenth Scriptural prayer book encourages us to allow the Holy Spirit, the Sanctifier, to shape and mold our hearts into an imitation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Through reflective and meditative selections from Sacred Scripture, this daily journey is a call to conversion when we encounter the Theological Virtues [Faith, Hope, Love], the Gifts of the Holy Spirit [Fear of the Lord, Knowledge, Piety, Counsel, Fortitude, Wisdom and Understanding], and the Fruit of the Holy Spirit [Charity, Joy, Peace, Patience, Faithfulness, Goodness, Generosity, Gentleness, Kindness, Modesty, Self-Control, and Chastity].

Inspiration and Meditation through Art and Literature

Pope Benedict XV's Encyclical on Dante "IN PRAECLARA SUMMORUM" (April 30, 1921) stated that "Among the many celebrated geniuses of whom the Catholic faith can boast who have left undying fruits in literature ... highest stands the name of Dante Alighieri..." [IPS, 1] Dante's Divine Comedy is organized on the basis of the number seven - the seven circles of Inferno; the seven terraces on the mountain of Purgatorio; and, the seven spheres of Paradiso. Three pictures from The Doré Illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy are included for each of the Seven Visits. The first picture is from Purgatorio and reflects on the particular vice we wish to eliminate. The next two pictures from Paradiso are one artist's interpretation of the beatific vision - God's promise of eternal life. Pope Benedict XV further said that while the Divine Comedy "uses various symbolic images and records the lives of mortals on earth, it has for its true aim the glorification of the justice and providence of God who rules the world through time and all eternity and punishes and rewards the actions of individuals and human society." [IPS, 4]
