​Mancipia Press just sent out the most recent issue of “From the Housetops Magazine” which is researched, written, published and printed right here on the monastery grounds! This issue features the tremendous story of Saint Josephine Bakhita ~ Flower of the African Desert. It is a journey of incredible grace!

Josephine Bakhita was kidnapped, abused, and sold into slavery. However, what could have been fuel for a deep and lasting hatred turned to be the greatest blessing of her life. By the grace of God and help from some faithful friends she found forgiveness and peace in the Catholic Faith. Her key to heroic sanctity: living her life day by day with Jesus, her true Master. 

Other articles in the issue include works such as:

  • Prayer for Our Enemies
  • Our Guardian Angels
  • Cheerfulness
  • Little Saints
  • The Dolors of Mary
  • Hope
  • Plainly Speaking
