Memoirs of Father Germain
(Translated by Founder Edgar Crespo from the original Spanish into English and published in 2006.)

An orphan before age five, Germain spends two years living alone on the seashore in seventeenth century France. The fishermen call him “little prophet” since he can always foretell impending storms. One fateful day he strays into a castle of monks – and is not allowed to leave. The monks educate him and he is proved to be an excellent student, but he suffers from their cold and unfeeling ways.

As a young man, Germain eventually takes his vows becoming a priest in the Catholic Church. He settles in a poor village with his faithful dog, Sultan, and it is here that he consoles the humble and oppressed – sometimes risking his life for their sake. As his reputation as a virtuous and holy man spreads, even royalty arrive for absolution of their crimes.

Father Germain teaches love of the Creator and mankind with a belief that even the most hardened heart can be turned toward goodness. He exposes church hypocrisy and is persecuted by his superiors; yet he continues to teach according to his conscience.

Memoirs of Father Germain is the touching, true account of this beloved priest’s life relayed to the writer Amalia Domingo Soler of Spain. These stories of intrigue, adventure, human emotion, and morality will provide you with tremendous love, inspiration, and hope.

A PRACTICAL GUIDE for the SPIRITIST: Handbook on Personal Conduct

Having faced adversity and tragedy in his early life, Miguel Vives found salvation in Spiritism and renown and success as a healing and spiritual medium. Yet while Vives made his mark as a nineteenth century Spiritist, for anyone who is determined to achieve moral and spiritual advancement in this lifetime and beyond, his teachings shine as a twenty-first century beacon of inspiration and affirmation.

In this concise guidebook, translated by Edgar Crespo, Vives draws a precise roadmap that shows how we can reach a new level of spiritual fulfillment and a profound sense of peace and communion with humanity. Based on his understanding of the natural and spiritual law of reincarnation, Vives provides a universal moral code that goes beyond any creed or religion.

Vives also shows how we are to behave with love and charity with our families, with ourselves, and with all other persons, even those who bring heartache and pain. Steered by an abiding devotion to moral and ethical conduct, Vives spells out how we can obtain the moral courage to triumph over the challenges of life.
