CELIBACY-A FULLNESS OF LIFE

CELIBACY-A FULLNESS OF LIFE
$5.95

The author addresses a topic which is not only pertinent to priests or religious, but also, applies to all Christians.  He sees celibacy, next to poverty and obedience, as one of the three steps of acceptance, letting go and admittance in order to attain full human potential.  He shows how great the importance of celibacy was to the early monastics in order to attain this potential.  The author also shows how God in this fulfilled celibacy can fill a person's most profound yearnings.

CHALLENGE OF MIDLIFE

CHALLENGE OF MIDLIFE
$4.50

The so-called Midlife Crisis not only presents us with a variety of problems, but also, gives us an opportunity to grow spiritually and advance to the authentic faith.  This volume addresses the mastery of midlife crisis in faith from two sides: from the point of view of the psychologist C.G. Jung, and the other, from the viewpoint of the mystic Johannes Tauler, for whom midlife can be a way to penetrate to the depth of one's soul.

CHALLENGE OF SILENCE

CHALLENGE OF SILENCE
$4.50

Monastic tradition does not look upon silence as a withdrawal, but as a means of an honest confrontation with thoughts, desires, and needs that constantly "talk" within us.  Monastics of old point out ways to achieve interior silence, freedom from self and a prayer life by which they allow themselves to be totally permeated by God, free from all thoughts and fantasies.

CHANT MADE SIMPLE

product image
$19.95
The purity and simplicity of Gregorian chant is what fed the musical and liturgical life of Christianity for more than a millennium before there were any Protestants. But after the reforms of the Vatican II councils in the 1960s, chant went into disuse. Gregorian chant is back, and more popular than it has been in the last forty years. This handy book is for musicians of all denominations and levels of ability to sing chant, and to understand it more than ever before. New for the second edition of this classic work are: an entirely new interior design that is easier to navigate and read, many additional chants, and historical and spiritual introductions to each of them.

CHERISH CHRIST ABOVE ALL: THE BIBLE IN THE RULE OF BENEDICT

CHERISH CHRIST ABOVE ALL: THE BIBLE IN THE RULE OF BENEDICT
$12.95
The Rule of Benedict, one of the most influential documents in Western civilization, has its roots planted deeply in the scriptures. As a result, the forms of monastic life and the spirituality it engendered among lay men and women grew out of a loving reading of the Bible. In this book Benedictine scholar Demetrius Dumm traces those roots and shows how the Judeo-Christian scriptures shine through the monastic way of life, its attitudes and forms of praying. He points out that the hospitality often associated with the Benedictines begins with the entertainment of God's presence by quiet, trusting prayer, and he shows that the practice of Christian discipline is intended more for exposing and eliminating illusions than imposing order. Readers of all backgrounds who honor the wealth of the Christian heritage will welcome this wise and stirring book.

CHRISTUS VIVIT (CHRIST IS ALIVE!)

CHRISTUS VIVIT (CHRIST IS ALIVE!)
$11.95
"Christ is alive!" proclaims the pope. Pope Francis's new Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit calls to "all Christian young people" and the People of God, including pastors and the faithful, and urges them to the youthful newness of life in Christ!

The pope proposes that youth engage the joy of a living God, the richness of their Catholic faith, and the strength of living in Christian community. He illuminates the Scriptures to give youth tangible hope and draw them more fully into the Church. And in a time of new technology and transformative social changes, the pope challenges youth to take the grounded path of generous sacrifice and faithful companionship with peers, family, neighbors, and elders.

Pope Francis knows committed and bold youth and young adults can change our world! He listened to youthful voices from all over the world during the synod on young people.

COMPASSION: A REFLECTION ON THE CHRISTIAN LIFE

COMPASSION: A REFLECTION ON THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
$10.95
New/Used: New

In this provocative essay on that least understood virtue, compassion, the authors challenge themselves and us with these questions: Where do we place compassion in our lives? Is it enough to live a life in which we hurt one another as little as possible? Is our guiding ideal a life of maximum pleasure and minimum pain? Compassion answers no.

After years of study and discussion among themselves, with other religious, and with men and women at the very center of national politics, the authors look at compassion with a vigorous new perspective. They place compassion at the heart of a Christian life in a world governed far too long by principles of power and destructive control. Compassion, no longer merely an eraser of human mistakes, is a force of prayer and action -- the expression of God's love for us and our love for God and one another.

Compassion is a book that says no to a compassion of guilt and failure and yes to a compassionate love that pervades our spirit and moves us to action. Henri Nouwen, Donald McNeill, and Douglas Morrison have written a moving document on what it means to be a Christian in a difficult time.

COMPLETE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING

COMPLETE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING
$22.99
The Christian mystical tradition has its roots in Holy Scripture but was enunciated most clearly by the late 5th century author writing under the name Dionysius the Areopagite. It was acquaintance with the medieval version of that work which inspired the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing and led him to develop his insights and perceptions of the obscurity and “unknowability” of God. His understanding was that God was on an entirely different plane of existence from human beings—indeed, so different that time-bound human language was inadequate to describe God exhaustively or accurately. Intellect and emotion both fail in seeking God, who can only be encountered by rejecting of all common earthly means in a “cloud of forgetting” and the discovery of Godself in the dark “cloud of unknowing” which can be pierced only with a “lance of longing love.”

$17.99
Our hearts are restless until they rest in you.

The first autobiography ever written, and one of the most profound testaments of faith, ever.

"This book is the masterpiece from which all other Christian memoirs flow. Augustine's astonishing story remains as fresh as it did when he wrote it in the late fourth century. The Confessions still speaks with a clear, vivid and altogether distinctive voice to believers and seekers searching for the One who will give rest to their restless hearts." --James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints

COVENANT & COMMUNION

COVENANT & COMMUNION
$21.99
New/Used: New
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger's election as Pope Benedict XVI brought a world-class biblical theologian to the papacy. There is an intensely biblical quality to his pastoral teaching and he has demonstrated a keen concern for the authentic interpretation of sacred Scripture.

Here a foremost interpreter of Catholic thought and life offers a probing look at Benedict's biblical theology and provides a clear and concise introduction to his life and work. Bestselling author and theologian Scott Hahn argues that the heart of Benedict's theology is salvation history and the Bible and shows how Benedict accepts historical criticism but recognizes its limits. The author also explains how Benedict reads the overall narrative of Scripture and how he puts it to work in theology, liturgy, and Christian discipleship.

DREAMS ON THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

DREAMS ON THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
$4.00

Dreams are not the domain of psychology.  A wholesome spirituality cannot ignore God's forgotten language in dreams.  Dreams tell us where we stand.  They point out the tasks which we have to address on our spiritual journey.  In dreams, we encounter the dark side of our nature that we may present it to the light of God and be healed.  Dreams as companions on our spiritual journey guard against single-minded endeavors and give precedence to God's grace.
