RULE OF SAINT BENEDICT (TR. VENARDE)

RULE OF SAINT BENEDICT (TR. VENARDE)
$35.00

One of the most influential texts in the Middle Ages, The Rule of Saint Benedict offers guidance about both the spiritual and organizational dimensions, from the loftiest to the lowliest, of monastic life. This new Latin-English edition has features of interest for first-time readers of the Rule as well as for scholars of medieval history and language.

The Latin text is a transcription of manuscript 914 of the Abbey of St. Gall (Switzerland), an early ninth-century copy regarded as the version that most closely reproduces Benedict's style. The saint’s idiom was informal, sometimes conversational, and heavily influenced by the spoken Latin of the sixth century CE. In the Rule his voice and thought processes come through in all their strength and humanity. Readers will find background to the monastic life in the notes. This volume also includes texts and translations of two letters that explain the origins of the St. Gall version as well as an index to all the translated materials.

SACRED PAUSE: A CREATIVE RETREAT FOR THE WORD - WEARY CHRISTIAN

SACRED PAUSE: A CREATIVE RETREAT FOR THE WORD - WEARY CHRISTIAN
$21.00
Even though our lives are full of words, we rarely pause to attend to them – to revel in the sights and sounds and dynamics of what we too-easily say about God. Rachel Hackenberg offers the word-weary, the writers-blocked, and the spiritually stagnant to explore the words of faith anew and thereby meet The Word afresh. Through twelve deceptively light-hearted chapters on letters and definitions, grammar and poetry, this book sparks the spiritual imagination even as it provides practical exercises for an inspired retreat experience!

SAINT PAUL: MASTER OF THE SPIRITUAL LIFE "IN CHRIST"

SAINT PAUL: MASTER OF THE SPIRITUAL LIFE "IN CHRIST"
$29.95
New/Used: New
In Saint Paul, Elliott C. Maloney explores what the great saint says about the spiritual life, the “how to” in the day-to-day activities and concerns of Christians. How should people live in covenant relationship with God, committed to seeking God’s will in every aspect of their lives?  Spirituality is a popular topic, but it is regarded as merely one part of life, some “higher level” of living when compared to ordinary living.  Even Catholic scholarship, Maloney argues, notable as it is in Pauline exegesis and theology, seems to lack a feel for the overall kind of living that Paul wanted for his communities, not to mention how we might appropriate such wisdom for today.  For Paul, all of a believer’s life is spiritual life. The alternative is a life “according to the flesh,” a self-centered life without God, a continual spiritual death. Based on over forty years of teaching and study of the Pauline letters, Maloney’s Saint Paul offers a rich vision of Christianity and the spiritual life “in Christ.”

SANT' ANSELMO IN ROME: COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY
$39.95
Sant'Anselmo in Rome was founded in 1888 by Pope Leo XIII for the training of Benedictines from all over the world in philosophy and theology. To this day, Sant'Anselmo is characterized by the interplay between the Benedictine College and the university entrusted to it, the Pontificio Ateneo di Sant'Anselmo, which for decades has also welcomed non-Benedictine students.

For well over a century Sant'Anselmo has had a strong influence on Benedictine monasteries in every continent while providing a lasting service to the Universal Church through the pursuit of academic liturgical and theological studies. What were the burning issues and events in the history of Sant'Anselmo? What was the guiding spirit among professors and students in the different periods of Sant'Anselmo's existence? How did one live in the College? These are just a few of the questions addressed by Abbot Pius Engelbert's history of the College and University.

    SEEDS OF THE WORD: FINDING GOD IN THE CULTURE
    $24.95
    Since the first century, Christians have detected "seeds of the Word" in the surrounding culture. No matter how charred or distorted the fragments, we can always uncover inklings of the Gospel, which can then lead people to God. Through this evocative collection of essays, Father Robert Barron finds those "seeds" in today's most popular films, books, and current events. How do Superman, Gran Torino, and The Hobbit illuminate the figure of Jesus? How does Bob Dylan convey the prophetic overtones of Jeremiah and Isaiah? Where can we detect the ripple of original sin in politics, sports, and the Internet culture? Finding the "seeds of the Word" requires a new vision. This book will train you to see.
