Desert Call

Packed with articles on practical spirituality and earthy mysticism, Desert Call will feed, inspire, and challenge you. Several-time first place winner in the Catholic Press Association annual press awards, Desert Call encourages you in your desire to enter the desert to pray.


The Living Flame of Love:
Prayer in Carmelite Spirituality
This set of four CDs features over four hours of conferences and music from a retreat given by members of the Nada Community in the Fall of 2006. Journey with Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Therese of Lisieux, and Lawrence of the Resurrection as they lead us through the challenges of life into a deeper experience of our love affair with God.

O Come Emmanuel

Praying With the O Antiphons

Prepare for the wonder of Christmas by praying with the "O Antiphons," those ancient prayers used at vespers during the week before Christmas. In this two CD set, Fr. Eric Haarer encourages us to pray the O Antiphons as a means of healing our wounds, and preparing the space for the coming of the messiah.

Soul Voyage
Every life is a unique and unrepeatable story.  In Soul Voyage we attempt through words and music to examine the patterns of our lives by reflecting on the voyage of Sir Ernest Shackelton and the crew of The Endurance on their ill-fated Antarctic sojourn.  In their story we recognize our own desires, the pain of shattered dreams, and on the horizon always the hope of new life, of resurrection. Commentary by Fr. Eric Haarer. Eight new songs by Tom Renaud, performed by Tom and Suzie Ryan.
(CD; approximately 50 minutes)
