Build a stunning Catholic library for your home... and a beautiful monastery for the Poor Clare nuns.
I've long dreamed of publishing the Catholic Classics in the finest editions ever made.
The Poor Clares pray before
the Blessed Sacrament Daily
When the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration turned to me to help build their new monastery, I felt called to make this dream a reality. Deep in my soul, I knew it was time to launch our TAN Limited Editions, with the first fruits reserved for the Poor Clares.
Thus was born the Cor Amoris Collection - a deluxe library of Catholic Classics that will grace your home, nourish your soul, and help build a holy place of Eucharistic Adoration and prayer.
These five volumes - The Imitation of Christ, An Introduction to the Devout Life, Abandonment to Divine Providence, The Interior Castle, and The Story of a Soul - have inspired and encouraged generations of Saints with their beauty, wisdom, and spiritual power. Each title was hand-selected by the Poor Clares to deepen your prayer life and draw you closer to the “Heart of Love,” God.
For the first time ever I am making these five Classics available as a deluxe limited edition library. We've crafted each volume from the highest quality leather, with luxurious gilded edges, original prefaces and exquisite art.
Pre-order your Cor Amoris Collection today for delivery before Christmas 2011. Join me in bringing this work of beauty and love into your home. I'll reserve all net proceeds from your order for the Poor Clares, to build them the home they need, and to raise a Eucharistic throne for Our Lord.

Abandonment to Divine Providence

The Interior Castle or Mansions
A remarkable description of the entire spiritual life from the first release from mortal sin into Sanctifying Grace through the Mystical Marriage of the soul with Christ.
Introduction to the Devout Life
Teaches how to lead a devout life, how we should approach God in prayer and the Sacraments, the practice of 16 important virtues, and more.
Story of a Soul
Details St Therese of Liseux's "Little Way" of spiritual childhood - her "elevator" to Heaven, as she called it.
