Studying the Life of Saint Clare of Assisi: A Beginner's Workbook
William Hugo, OFM Cap. Joanne Schatzlein, OSF
This one-of-a-kind resource helps readers discover St. Clare through a series of crisp chapters that first teach them about the sources for St. Clare's life and writings and then apply that knowledge to manageable topics from her life. This workbook has been successful with high school graduates and Ph.Ds. It works for anyone who wants to do a guided study of the life of St. Clare of Assisi using primary sources. Those benefiting from this unique approach include Franciscans of all kinds, especially those in formation programs, students of medieval or female spirituality, historians of religious life, women and men working in Franciscan ministries, former pilgrims who have visited Assisi, and anyone wanting to learn how different people in the history of the Church responded to its changing circumstances. "Studying the Life of Saint Clare" helps readers understand the Franciscan intuition in ways that move beyond St. Francis of Assisi.
Now available in the Solanus Casey Center Gift Shop for $24.95. When purchased with Clare of Assisi: Early Documents ($39.95) a 30% discount on the entire order will be applied.
Following the 2017 beatification of Blessed Solanus Casey, the Capuchin Franciscan friar on his way to becoming the second American-born male saint, a new documentary film, Celebrate Solanus, traces his life of humble service to the poor and the sick, and the road to sainthood.
Celebrate Solanus, produced by Rochester, Michigan-based Foxfire Entertainment, features interviews with Capuchin friars who knew and lived with Blessed Solanus. The documentary is available on DVD for $19.99 plus shipping with proceeds benefiting Capuchin ministries. Available in the Solanus Casey Center gift shop or online.
A new book on the life, ministry and road to sainthood of Blessed Solanus is now available at the Solanus Casey Center Gift Shop and online. Part of the Arcadia Publishing Images of America series, written by former Detroit Free Press religion reporter Patricia Montemurri.
Whenever there was a knock at the Capuchin Monastery door, Fr. Solanus Casey answered. the Capuchin friar’s prayers brought comfort and healing to visitors he greeted at friaries in Michigan, New York, and Indiana. On September 12, 2012, inside St. Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit, where Casey’s remains are interred, a miracle happened. Minutes after a pilgrim knelt at Casey’s tomb, signs of her lifelong genetic skin disease disappeared. Pope Francis declared the healing a miracle, and nearly 70,000 people filled a Detroit football stadium on November 18, 2017, for Casey’s beatification ceremony, when the Catholic Church honored him with the title of “Blessed.” The Wisconsin-born Casey, a onetime prison guard who died in 1957 at the age of 86, is now one step and one more miracle away from becoming a saint. The photographs in Blessed Solanus Casey illustrate the arc of his life and legacy, including images from his early years and ministry to the poor, of those who say they have been healed by his prayers, and of the stirring catholic rituals accompanying the friar’s path to possible sainthood.
Patricia Montemurri is an award-winning Detroit journalist and the author of Detroit Gesu Catholic Church and School. Blessed Solanus Casey’s story unfolds here through photographs from the archives of the Capuchin Franciscan Province of St. Joseph as well as from the Michigan Catholic and the photo albums of those he touched through prayer.
The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
