Bede Jarrett Anthology
20.00

EDITOR: FR. JORDAN AUMANN, OP

Father Bede Jarrett, OP, a former Provincial of the English Dominicans, was endowed with a rare assortment of gifts and talents. He was at once an administrator, a preacher, a scholar, a writer and a spiritual director, but, above all, he was a preacher, in the finest traditions of the Dominican Order. 

Although not all of the selections of this Anthology are taken from Father Jarrett's sermons, the intent of the editor has been to show Father Jarrett as the preacher. From the wealth of material available, an attempt has been made to compile a volume that would represent the extraordinary gifts of Father Jarrett and would at the same time provide a resource of fruitful spiritual reading for the contemporary Christian.

Blessed Margaret of Castello: Servant of the Sick and the Outcast

Sr. Mary Elizabeth O'Brien, OP

In Pope Francis’ Misericordiae Vultus, he writes “During this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we look forward to the experience of opening our hearts to those living on the outermost fringes of society.” 


Dr. Mary Elizabeth O’Brien, OP, has completed a comprehensive study of the life and ministry of Blessed Margaret of Castello, a thirteenth century Dominican Tertiary. Blessed Margaret’s life, as illustrated in Dr. O’Brien’s work, vividly exemplifies what Pope Francis is calling all people of the world to embrace, to become ministers of mercy and compassion.  


Margaret, born blind and with serious physical challenges, abandoned by her parents and left homeless, experienced firsthand the indifference and suffering of those she was called by God to serve, the poor, the sick and the outcast. With a profound faith in a Loving Father, she brought hope and healing to the lost and the unwanted. This ministry is what we are called upon to embrace today; to transform our world so that every person is loved and cared for as the summit of God’s creative genius. Blessed Margaret’s life gives us this model of mercy and compassion.

Spirituality of a Quilter

Author: Sr. Dorothy K. Ederer, OP

Sr. Dorothy's latest book on the spirituality of a quilter is designed to be read and reflected on one block at a time. The book is broken into two parts - the first part contains quilt blocks with reflections, a psalm or passage from Scripture and then an unfinished prayer. The second part has quilt designs from the Underground Railroad with a short explanation and prayer.

If we look at our lives as a quilt, and think of God, not only as our Quilt Maker, but also as the thread who weaves together the pieces of our lives, we can choose to let God work with us, or we can try to do it alone...
