SEEDS OF THE WORD: FINDING GOD IN THE CULTURE

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.

SEEKER'S GUIDE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

SEEKER'S GUIDE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
$11.95
The eleventh book in the popular Seeker's Series enlightens readers to the mystery of the Holy Spirit.

The Seeker's Guide to the Holy Spirit explores the Holy Spirit and the seven spiritual gifts of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, fortitude, piety, counsel, and fear of the Lord. While admitting that describing the Holy Spirit is like "trying to describe the wind," author Bill Dodds uses a casual conversational style and everyday examples to translate complex theological concepts.

In each chapter, Dodds uses Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church to examine one of the seven gifts and an aspect of the Holy Spirit. He follows with a discussion of the opposite of each gift (e.g., foolishness rather than wisdom) and reveals the abundance of joy found when accepting these gifts.

SET ASIDE EVERY FEAR

SET ASIDE EVERY FEAR
$10.95
Set Aside Every Fear is a simple, thirty-day devotional based on the classic spirituality of St. Catherine of Siena, who was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1970. In only a few minutes each day, this book offers you a glimpse of St. Catherine's passion for living steeped in the intimate connection between love of God and service to others, which has inspired people of faith for more than six centuries.

Originally published in 1997 and now back in print, Set Aside Every Fear is the perfect prayer companion for busy people who want to root their spiritual practice in the solid ground of St. Catherine of Siena's timeless--and timely--teachings on divine and human relationships. Catherine brought together two frequently unconnected charisms--mysticism and active ministry--and embodied both throughout her life. Her intimacy with God through prayer enabled her to minister to the poor and sick more deeply and to boldly speak truth to Church authorities. When the papacy fled Rome for Avignon because of political conflict, Catherine tirelessly encouraged the popes to return to Rome, and was ultimately successful.

Set Aside Every Fear offers prayers in the voice of God and responses in the voice of humanity based on Catherine's own words, which encourage you in your own practice of dialogue with God. As you reflect on the mystery of divine love, Catherine shares her own relationship with God in a way that challenges you to place your trust in God and abandon your worries as you follow him.

All the titles in the 30 Days with a Great Spiritual Teacher series contain a brief morning meditation, a simple mantra to use throughout the day, and a night prayer to focus your thoughts as the day ends. John Kirvan is the series editor.

SISTERS OF CHARITY OF SETON HILL
$21.99
In August 1870, Mother Aloysia Lowe and five Sisters of Charity from Cincinnati arrived in Altoona, Pennsylvania, to found a new community of sisters for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Western Pennsylvania, with its throngs of newly immigrated Catholics and burgeoning industry, witnessed the growth of parishes and quality schools. Mother Aloysia purchased a 200-acre property in Greensburg in 1882 to accommodate the growing community. It became known as Seton Hill. The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill, following in the footsteps of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. Vincent de Paul, and St. Louise de Marillac, have dedicated their lives in service of others. From the establishment of groundbreaking educational institutions, including Seton Hill University, to the operation of advanced health-care facilities and vital social service programs, the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill influenced the lives of thousands of Americans. The pioneering spirit of these Sisters of Charity, evidenced in their expansive mission work in Arizona, California, and Louisiana, culminated in 1960 with a mission to Korea. The Korean Province and the United States now unite the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill as an international congregation.

SO WE DO NOT LOSE HEART: BIBLICAL WISDOM FOR ALL OUR DAYS
$12.95
This book contains 83 short reflections on passages of scripture which address, from various perspectives, the perennial human problem of mortality. A prominent theme in these reflections is, therefore, an invitation to trust the goodness of God in situations where we experience loss of control and the consequent need to rely on a higher power for love and support. These reflections also remind us that reliance on the goodness of God need not be a desperate last resort but can in fact be a joyful discovery that will illuminate the whole landscape of our lives.

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION: A GUIDE FOR SHARING THE FATHER'S LOVE

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION: A GUIDE FOR SHARING THE FATHER'S LOVE
$27.95
New/Used: New
The need for spiritual directionor the accompaniment of a spiritual guideis becoming more prominent in a world where so many are suffering from so many wounds. With a harmonious integration of both timeless spiritual wisdom from the Catholic Church's tradition of prayer and direction, and the insight of the psychological sciences, Fathers Thomas Acklin and Boniface Hicks offer a comprehensive guide for all who provide or seek spiritual direction. Spiritual Direction: A Guide for Sharing the Father's Love fortifies priests, religious, and lay faithful who embrace the ministry of spiritual direction and accompany the wounded, assist men and women in hearing the voice of God, and model the love and mercy of the Father for the many who are seeking Him but do not know Him or have false images of Him. This book also shows how various aspects of the spiritual life can emerge from and be fostered by a one-on-one relationship with a spiritual director. Together with concrete guidelines and numerous examples from personal experience, this book refers extensively to Sacred Scripture as the foundation for spiritual direction. Furthermore, since the practice of spiritual direction goes back to the first centuries of the Church, the authors turn for guidance to the Doctors of the Church, the writings of the saints, and the papal magisterium in developing and supporting their insights. Spiritual Direction will call spiritual directors to deeper holiness even as they assist others in growing closer to the Father through His loving gaze of mercy.

ST. NICHOLAS & THE HOUSE OF MYRA

ST. NICHOLAS & THE HOUSE OF MYRA
$15.99
This playful book illustrates--in vivid color and storytelling--the life of St. Nicholas of Myra from his beginnings as a young priest in Asia Minor in the late 3rd century until just before his death. Kids will watch as he learns and practices the generosity that led to him becoming the father of Christmas giving ("St. Nick"). As with Saint Francis and Brother Duck, Jay Stoeckl's first foray into this genre, one fictional character is added to the mix through whom the wisdom and Christian teachings of Nicholas's life can be revealed through dialogue: a Greek-attired philosopher-mouse by the name of Cicero. He questions many of Nicholas's actions, often hilariously, until the mouse himself converts to Christianity late in the story. The result is an excellent introduction to the life of one of the least-understood and appreciated real characters in Christian history
