BEHOLD HIS LOVE
This Lenten masterpiece will walk you through Jesus’ sufferings
and relate them to your own life. (144 pages)
Excerpt from the book
Victory Through Humble Submission
Scripture reading: Mark 14:32-46
We know that Jesus was “greatly distressed and troubled” during the battle of Gethsemane. Whoever won this victory would win mankind! Everything looked as though Satan and his kingdom would win. Yet Jesus had a weapon which proved to be a mighty weapon and brought Him victory: humble submission. Through His obedience He glorified God. “Father, Your will is perfect.”
Jesus was the only one who did not seek His own glory, but the glory of the Father.
Now Jesus has given us a weapon to overcome every temptation: humble submission to the will of God...and the enemy will not gain control of our soul.
THE HOLY LAND TODAY
The Holy Land comes to life - a book for those who seek a deeper
and more personal relationship with Jesus.
Excerpt from the book - See Luke 24:13-32
The blessed fellowship in the breaking of bread that the Lord granted His disciples here in Emmaus, and which He continues to grant to His own throughout the world, will end in the eternal “Emmaus” in heaven. There we shall celebrate the Marriage Supper of the Lamb with Him in the heavenly banquet hall amid rejoicing and jubilation. Then we shall be able to see more than ever that all the ways of God lead to the supreme goal of glory - glory that far surpasses the suffering endured along these ways. (Rom.8:18)

A WALK THROUGH JERUSALEM AT JESUS’ SIDE
Filmed in the Holy Land (DVD 30 min.)
Basilea Schlink takes us to the places where Jesus suffered, died and rose again. Many have been drawn to the city of Jerusalem in their desire to understand better what our Lord did for us.
In this film we accompany Jesus in spirit from Gethsemane to Calvary. We come as pilgrims, offering love and thanksgiving to our Savior, and go with a deeper commitment to follow Him in our everyday lives. At the Holy Places the living Jesus is waiting to have an encounter with us and to reveal His heart to us.
NO GREATER LOVE
Filmed in Phoenix, AZ on Canaan in the Desert (DVD 30 min.)
The Passion Story is retold in picture, word and song.
Nothing can bring us closer to Jesus than thinking of His sufferings for us -- the greatest expression of His love. This is how a Prayer Garden, depicting the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus, came to be made by the Sisters of Mary. Nestled against the mountains of the picturesque Arizona Desert, it has become a sanctuary of peace and blessing for many.
