  • Lady Poverty Collection

    The three books in this special collection shine a bright light on mercy, sacrifice, and kindness toward the unlovable, the outcast, and the marginalized. The connections between the works are surprising. In Mr. Blue, a 1928 novel, the main character exemplifies radical generosity by forgoing fortune for love of Lady Poverty. That same outpouring of self is found in Dorothy Day’s House of Hospitality, real-life reflections on the beginning of the Catholic Worker Movement. Finally, at the heart of St. Francis’ and Pope Francis’ teaching is that embracing poverty can lead to healing and restoration in a broken world. Three important works all Catholics should read.

  • The Big Hustle: A Boston Street Kid's Story of Addiction and Redemption

    The Big Hustle is the story of a redeemed life and a family’s healing. This is the no-holds-barred, unvarnished, and sometimes brutal true story of Jim Wahlberg, the fifth of nine kids growing up in a working-class Irish Catholic neighborhood outside of Boston, hustling for attention any way he could get it, which led him to the biggest hustle of his life. Against all odds he got clean, he got out, and he got the girl. Jim dedicated his new life as a former addict to working with addicts, and for years has spread the word that recovery is possible.
