Lanternarius Press

Publishing With a
Moral Compass

A small publishing company with a big mission.

Lanternarius Press is a small publishing company, started in 2015, working to explain Catholic Christian morals and values to a new generation. We are doing this through a series of books, both paperback, e-book and, eventually, audio. Future goals include plays on cd and video.


Our first book introduces a new series of advice books. It is titled "A Catholic Mother Speaks to Her Children". Originally published over 100 years ago, this book was written for preteen children. It includes advice on vanity, curiosity and obedience as well as a discussion of the Catholic Church's traditions and liturgy. Find out more about this and our other books.


You can buy these and all future books at View all our titles and find purchase links to on our books page.


Here find interesting stories about popes and saints on our blog. Two to three times a month new blogs are added as we go chronologically through all the popes starting with ST. Peter. Find stories about saints who became evangelizers, how they accomplished this great feat in their own limited lives. And find some opinions on today's Catholicism by the publishers of this website.
