WAY OF THE CROSS WITH POPE FRANCIS: MEDITATIONS ON THE STATIONS

WAY OF THE CROSS WITH POPE FRANCIS: MEDITATIONS ON THE STATIONS
$5.95
"The cross is the word of hope and mercy to all the crucified of the world, for those who are oppressed, the sick, poor, and marginalized, victims of violence and abuse, still find the courage to turn their gaze to the One who was pierced. And from this look of divine love they receive comfort, peace, consolation, and mercy, even the strength to forgive their executioners. What would man be without the cross of Christ?" --from the Introduction With this simple yet profound book, Pope Francis invites us to pray the stations and to continue "this Way of the Cross in our daily lives. Let us walk together along the Way of the Cross and let us do so carrying in our hearts this word of love and forgiveness" (Address, March 29, 2013).

WAY OF THE HEART: CONNECTING WITH GOD THROUGH PRAYER, WISDOM, & SILENCE

WAY OF THE HEART: CONNECTING WITH GOD THROUGH PRAYER, WISDOM, & SILENCE
$15.00
Since its first publication, The Way of the Heart has helped millions of men and women cast off the anger and greed that trouble the world--and find love, compassion, and peace in the heart of God.

Inspired by the ancient teachings of St. Anthony and the Desert Fathers, The Way of the Heart clears before us a spiritual path consisting of three stepping-stones: Solitude (learning not to be alone but to be alone with God); Silence (the discipline by which the inner fire of God is tended and kept alive); and Prayer (standing in the presence of God with the mind in the heart).

Distinguished theologian Henri Nouwen brilliantly illuminates each of these disciplines. In reflections that are beautifully clear and practical, as uplifting on the fourth reading as on the first, he helps us separate the wheat from the chaff in our spiritual lives-and reconnects us with what truly matters.

Within this one small book lies the most relevant and inspiring challenge that we shall ever face: to surrender the compulsive noise of the world for the way of the heart that leads us to God.

WE NEED EACH OTHER: RESPONDING TO GOD'S CALL TO LIVE TOGETHER

WE NEED EACH OTHER: RESPONDING TO GOD'S CALL TO LIVE TOGETHER
$19.99
When Templeton Prize winner JEAN VANIER led a retreat in Nyahururu, Kenya, that country had recently been shattered by violence and bloodshed. Vanier's message was life-changing.

With frequent reference to the life and teachings of Jesus, Vanier asks:
- What are you seeking?
- Do you see that the feast is ready?
- Are you willing to be open?
- Do you realize how much you need other people?

"His powerful message and practice of love has the potential to change the world," said Jennifer Simpson, granddaughter of Sir John Templeton, when announcing the award of the Templeton Prize to Vanier.
--
"Jean Vanier brings you in touch with a place inside yourself that few people have reached," remarked Henri J. M. Nouwen.

Praise for We Need Each Other
"We all want to be noticed and loved by those who are famous, beautiful, and admired. To be loved by them gives us a good feeling. But to be loved by the poor, by those with disabilities, by those who have no place with the famous, the
beautiful, and the admired, is t he real place where unconditional love and healing will find us. How do we come to that practically in our lives? In this book, Jean Vanier gives us both a vision and a map. This is vintage Vanier."

WEALTH, WAGES & THE WEALTHY

WEALTH, WAGES & THE WEALTHY
$34.95

Fulfilling what he has called a "grave responsibility," Pope Francis has often addressed the issue of economic inequality and the use of personal, corporate, and national wealth. Francis's teaching is rooted in the teaching of Jesus, preserved in the pages of the New Testament. The Bible has more to say about the use of wealth than it does about other moral issues of our day, yet this teaching seldom enters into the conscience of believers. In Wealth, Wages, and the Wealthy: New Testament Insight for Preachers and Teachers Fr. Raymond F. Collins redresses this issue and provides the reader with a careful examination not only of what Jesus said about wealth but also of what each of the New Testament authors wrote about the topic.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT FORGIVENESS?

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT FORGIVENESS?
$16.95

Forgiveness confronts us at once with our weaknesses and strengths. Forgiveness exercises our covenant with God and with one another. It is a risk we take in order to move deeper into life. Forgiveness is prophetic; it is a way of communicating endless love to a needy world. Forgiveness opens our hearts and expands our spiritual horizon, pestering us to live the gospel more consciously and fully. Forgiveness requires prayer, grace and perseverance. When we forgive, we can heal our memories and discover a path to freedom and peace. This book, intended for a general audience, will show that the Bible tells us all this and much more about forgiveness.

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.
