Our Lady Press is a mom and pop publishing company. Mostly mom. Our main devotion is to prayer. First in the Mass, and then Eucharistic Adoration and the Rosary. We take seriously the admonition of Our Blessed Mother at Fatima, that there are many people who go to hell because no one prays for them. That’s pretty plainly stated. There are people, maybe people you know, who will go into perdition if you don’t sacrifice and pray for them. That means prayer, joined to love, is the most powerful thing on earth. We are told the President of the United States is the most powerful person in the world, when it is really nuns in cloisters that hold the fate of the world in eternity. Their prayers keep the wheels from falling off the world’s bicycle. Hence, Satan’s attack on prayer, wiping it from the public sphere as much as possible, and devaluing it wherever he can.
Our goal is to foster prayer through devotional images of Jesus, Mary, and the saints. We have a special love for the Divine Childhood of Jesus and Our Blessed Mother. You will see, over the course of time, the development of a series of images of El Divino Niño. He has chosen to be an avenue of particular grace in our family. How better can we seek to say thank you than through promoting devotion to our Lord as a child? Please subscribe to the newsletter to stay up-to-date on Our Lady Press.
We also are going to try to keep our prices in the range where anyone can afford them. Our first strategy is to sell through parish gift shops. There are two reasons for this. First is it targets the local congregation’s interests. The pastor of the parish knows what his flock wants more than anyone. So what he chooses from among our portfolio of images is tailored to that church’s population. This is, secondly, a way for us to give to many parishes through the sales of Our Lady Press, since it generates revenue for the parish. If you like the images we produce, tell your pastor about us. Ask that he stock Our Lady Press images. In this way, the parish receives a benefit from our activities.
On September 8th, we are debuting Seventh Mansion, a literary journal that produces fiction from a Catholic viewpoint (unless we get caught up in Blessed Mother Teresa’s canonization). It’s not a manual on Catholic things, but the sensibilities of the author is Catholic. He is getting along in years, and we hope his experience will color the prose he produces. We are going to try to make it a monthly. We’ll try. It is planned as a production through Amazon, since we can make print, Kindle, and audio versions of the journal available.
So, here we are. Join us in prayer. Pray for the conversion of sinners and for the holy souls in purgatory.
All the best.
