Sophia Needs Your Help

Sophia Institute Press is in financial trouble and asking for help. Sophia is a nonprofit organization. Their good works include the donation of thousands of books to religious and to prisoners.

Now may be a good time to buy any Sophia titles that are on your wish list. Or, perhaps, get some early Christmas shopping done. You can peruse their online catalog here.

Here are just a few titles of interest to Catholic homeschoolers:

The Catholic Homeschool Companion

Please Don't Drink the Holy Water

A Mother's Rule of Life

Memorize the Faith

Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know

A Life of Our Lord for Children

The Man Who Never Died

The First Christians

My Path to Heaven

The One Minute Philosopher

St. Patrick's Summer

Angel in the Waters

I've provided links to so that you may read editorial and customer reviews. However, if you would like to give Sophia the most bang out of your purchase, then please order directly from their website.

Maureen, thank you for this heads up. I would very much like to support Sophia in any way that I can.

Check out this book.

It's an adaptation of the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius, with amazing drawings. It's supposed to be for kids, but I was really amazed at the depth of it, I bought one for my little nephew and ended up buying one for myself too!

And don't forget Breastfeeding and Catholic Motherhood by Sheila Kippley - another excellent Sophia title!!

Oh don't forget Mary Reed Newland's How to Raise Good Catholic Children! Written in the '50s-- it's a classic of common sense advice!

We are currently having a 20% off sale in support of this effort. (in case you'd like to support a Catholic store supporting a Catholic publisher instead of Amazon).
