WHEN IT FEELS IMPOSSIBLE TO PRAY: PRAYERS FOR THE GRIEVING

WHEN IT FEELS IMPOSSIBLE TO PRAY: PRAYERS FOR THE GRIEVING
$7.99
When words don't come easily, there are still ways to pray.

For those who have experienced a sudden and terrible loss, it is important to realize that you don't have to do the things one normally associates with prayer to actually be connecting with God in a way that's prayer-like. Just sit still, if you like. Grieving people often find themselves doing a lot of sitting still. Stunned. Allow yourself a time to be quiet, to answer to no one, to accomplish nothing at all. Quietness in itself is where prayerfulness begins.

This little book can be your entry to talking with God -- with and without words -- in this most difficult time.

WHY BOTHER PRAYING?

WHY BOTHER PRAYING?
$14.95
Written by the best selling author of Where the Hell Is God?, this accessible volume is for everyone who wonders how to pray, everyone who wonders what happens when you pray, and everyone who wonders if God hears our prayers. In an engaging and informative style, the author explores the context within which we pray, what is distinctive about Christian prayer, praying to Jesus, what communal prayers do, how Mary and the Saints help us pray, and finally, what the point of prayer is--sending us out with Christ to witness to the reign of God in our world. He ultimately answers the question this way: Why bother praying? Because at its most basic prayer is making space for God to love us and, through the community of faith, inviting us to have the courage to return the compliment. It changes lives. Why bother praying? Because God wants us to bother him, and in the process develop a relationship that is marked by such love and joy that it changes us, our neighbor, and the world. "Richard Leonard has done it again, tackled a difficult theological and spiritual question with honesty, deep knowledge, humor and a warm heart. Why Bother Praying moved me to tears and to laughing out loud. But I was also enlightened on one the most fundamental aspects of what it means to be a Christian, namely engaging in a real relationship with God, which is what prayer is all about. If you enjoyed and profited from Where the Hell is God?, you don't need to be urged to read this one. If you missed that treat, I urge you to buy this book and then you will also want to get the earlier one." --William A. Barry, SJ

WHY I AM CATHOLIC (AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO)

WHY I AM CATHOLIC (AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO)
$15.95

Now in paperback, Brandon Vogt's bestselling and award-winning Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) serves as a compelling reproposal of the Church to former Catholics, a persuasive argument for truth and beauty to those who have become jaded and disenchanted with religion, and at the same time offers practicing Catholics a much-needed dose of confidence and clarity to affirm their faith against an increasingly skeptical culture.

Like many millennials, Vogt--content director of Bishop Robert Barron's Word on Fire Catholic Ministries--considered himself "spiritual, but not religious" until, as a mechanical engineering student at Florida State University, he began a passionate search for truth that led him--to his great surprise--to the Catholic Church in 2008.

Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) traces Vogt's spiritual journey, making a refreshing, twenty-first-century case for the faith and answering questions being asked by agnostics, nones, and atheists--the audience for his popular website, StrangeNotions.com, where Catholics and atheists dialogue.

With references to Catholic thinkers such as G. K. Chesterton, John Henry Newman, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and Bishop Robert Barron, Vogt draws together lines of evidence to help seekers discover why they should be Catholic as an alternative. At the same time, he helps practicing Catholics affirm and strengthen their faith, giving them tools to answer the skeptics.

YOU ARE THE BELOVED

YOU ARE THE BELOVED
$26.00
Seven million copies of his books in print! This daily devotional from the bestselling author of such spiritual classics as The Return of the Prodigal Son and The Wounded Healer offers deep spiritual insight into human experience, intimacy, brokeness, and mercy.

Nouwen devoted much of his later ministry to emphasizing the singular concept of our identity as the Beloved of God. In an interview, he said that he believed the central moment in Jesus's public ministry to be his baptism in the Jordan, when Jesus heard the affirmation, "You are my beloved son on whom my favor rests." "That is the core experience of Jesus," Nouwen writes. "He is reminded in a deep, deep way of who he is. . . . I think his whole life is continually claiming that identity in the midst of everything."

You Are Beloved is a daily devotional intended to empower readers to claim this truth in their own lives. Featuring the best of Nouwen's writing from previously published works, this devotional will propel the canon forward as it draws on this rich literature in new and compelling ways. It will appeal to readers already familiar with Nouwen's work as well as new readers looking for a devotional to guide them into a deeper awareness of their identity in Jesus.

YOU SHALL BE A BLESSING: TWELVE LETTERS ON THE PRIESTHOOD

YOU SHALL BE A BLESSING: TWELVE LETTERS ON THE PRIESTHOOD
$17.95

German Cardinal Gerhard Müller is a voice contemporary Catholic priests need to hear. You Shall Be a Blessing is an affirmation of priestly life and ministry presented in twelve letters. Müller offers personal encouragement through finely honed theological and spiritual insight on the meaning, history, and importance of the priesthood to today's Catholic Church.

Vocational identity is an enduring concern among Catholic priests, bishops, teachers, and many lay Catholics around the world, particularly because of the challenges wrought by a changing Church and rapidly shifting culture. The struggle to navigate the personal and sacramental meanings of a priest's place in the Church is made more difficult by the disheartening loss of the Church's credibility in recent years and by seismic shifts away from the practice of religion by believers across the western world. Yet most priests continue to serve and lead the people in their care with great compassion, conviction, and desire to serve.

In You Shall Be a Blessing, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, writes as a spiritual father and careful teacher in twelve letters to priests, offering clear picture of their role in the life and work of the Church. He also addresses the theological tasks and spiritual disciplines needed by priests as they give witness to the Word, serve, and sanctify the Church.
