About Gospel Values

By how he lived – and by how he died – Jesus showed us the way to be truly alive and free. Gospel Values, Inc. exists for the sole purpose of proclaiming the beautiful message of Jesus in all its simplicity and challenge.

The mission of Gospel Values, Inc., to proclaim the message of Jesus happens with your help. Every time you share one of the books or open your heart to the message in one of Fr. Joe's homilies, videos, books, or presentations you have become a part of "feeding hungry children" and sharing the love of Jesus with the world. In addition to the immediate effect of sharing Jesus' love with those you encounter, the longer term effect of purchasing one of the products from Gospel Values or one of our publishers adds to the donation we are able to make a donation to those in need.

As a Christian response to the needs of the poor, Gospel Values is committed to helping families in the poorest regions of the world. Gospel Values has made donations over the years to organizations such as

Kindness in a Box and Growing Hope Globally.  

 Kindness in a Box provideshumanitarian resources that support the education, health and well-being of impoverished, indigenous Quechua children and families living in the District of Maras, Peru.

Father Joe has published four prayer books for children entitled: 

My Sister is Annoying…and Other Prayers for Children

You Want Me to Be Good, ALL DAY?

 Don’t Drink the Holy WaterBig Al and Annie Go To Mass

Sometimes Life is Just Not Fair.

Sometimes Life Is Just Not Fair helps children by its focus on the death of a loved one, life after death and grief. This book also has a section for parents and teachers about how to talk with children about these crucial life-issues). And it is now available as an eBook and audio book. 

In each of these books there are wonderful prayers for children and for those who love them.  In addition three of the books include a read-along CD which features conversations with Big Al, Annie, and Father Joe.  Don’t Drink the Holy Water comes with an engaging DVD highlighting the different parts of the Mass.  Whatever your age, it’s hard to read these brief and beautiful prayers and NOT be moved.

Also, Big Al and Annie and Father Joe collaborated with Cathy Pescarino for a beautiful CD and book of wonderfully inspirational lullabies called:  Faith-Filled Lullabies with Big Al and Annie

In addition to his earlier works on Sacraments, recently Fr. Joe re-did his classic

A Child’s First Communion

to include the best of that video; a visit from a now ‘grown-up” Adam; and materials for parent meetings and children’s sessions. It is called A Child’s First Communion – and So Much More.

Father Joe has also written books, CDs, and DVDs just for adults.  They include the book:

No One Cries the Wrong Way: Seeing God Through Tears

and the guided meditation CD:  Hearing the Voice of God: Reflections for Prayer and Perspective, which includes short meditations that touch on various aspects of our daily lives. 

Fr Joe also has created two four-part Mini-Retreat DVDs, Family: God in the Mix of It All and Catechists: God’s Call to Speak about our Faith  to inspire and help with these beautiful – and difficult – callings.

The Gospel Values Board members volunteer their time and gifts to helping Fr. Joe create new products, attend gatherings like LAREC, and ensure that all the profits of Gospel Values' endeavors go toward "feeding hungry children." The board members and Fr. Joe are grateful for your support. You are always in our prayers!
