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.

CENTERING PRAYER: SITTING QUIETLY IN GOD'S PRESENCE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE

CENTERING PRAYER: SITTING QUIETLY IN GOD'S PRESENCE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
$17.99

A new, but ancient, way to pray can turn your life around. Discover how to experience God's love at your core, freeing you to love others, and even yourself.

When biblical scholar and coach Brian Russell discovered centering prayer at a difficult crossroad in his life, he had no idea how his life would change. "Sensing God's love for me has been so transformational that it almost feels as though I've experienced conversion all over again," he writes. He became calmer, less anxious, less reactive, freed of past wounds, and a better listener in the presence of others.

Centering prayer, also known as the prayer of silence, helps you quiet your mind from the constant thoughts and impulses, and frees your true self to experience more of God's love in the very core of your being.

This inviting guide gives you practical tools to make centering prayer a consistent habit in your life, gives the history and theological foundation for the practice, and helps identify and overcome common obstacles. Beginners, as well as seasoned practitioners, will gain inspiration, rich insight, and practical knowledge of a contemplative prayer practice that can open you up to deep experiences of inner healing and peace.

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

CHANT MADE SIMPLE
$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.

CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY CD
$9.95

The prayer of the Divine Mercy was dictated by Jesus to St. Faustina, a simple, uneducated Polish nun, in the chapel of the Convent of Our Lady of Mercy in Vilinius on September 13th & 14th, 1935. Jesus appeared to St. Faustina in a vision and He asked her to paint an image of what she saw with the signature "Jesus, I Trust In You". Jesus promised that the souls that say this chaplet will be embraced by His mercy during their lifetime and especially at the hour of their death. Join Dana and her husband Damien as they pray this beautiful Chaplet of the Divine Mercy in this powerful album of inspired word and song.

CHARLES OF THE DESERT: A LIFE IN VERSE

CHARLES OF THE DESERT: A LIFE IN VERSE
$20.00
Featured in "The Millions" -- A year in Reading, Nick Ripatrazone.

"Each year I read more books than I can possibly review -- here are 5 of the finest and most memorable of that bunch. They are worth your money, your time, and your attention.
A book of poems that fictionalizes the life of Trappist monk Charles de Foucauld. Beautiful verse, full of pieces like "The Pangs of Wanting: " "I deliver my body to the church, / though I cannot imagine what penance might relieve / these pangs of wanting." Later: "I take first communion...My tongue licks up the bread: a whisper / of paper on my teeth...His torn body in my stomach, / his blood in my spit, I almost vomit; I almost sing." More collections about God like this one would be very welcomed."--Nick Ripatrazone, The Millions

Charles of the Desert is a novel-in-verse accompanying Charles de Foucauld, hermit and writer of "The Prayer of Abandonment," as he explores and adapts desert spirituality, monasticism, and contemplative prayer. Charles is an unusual and compelling figure and Charles of the Desert is unusual and compelling as well -- different from nonfiction books which focus on instructing in or explaining these subjects. It also explores Charles' profound respect for Muslims, his pioneering efforts at interfaith dialogue, and his commitment to live among Muslims as a "universal brother" known for his compassion and solidarity.

Born in 1858 to a family of French aristocrats, Charles was torn between his ambition to do great things and his desire for the hidden life, between public service and private prayer. Charles of the Desert uses elements of fiction and poetry to follow him to Morocco, Syria, Israel, and Algeria, as he becomes a cavalry officer, explorer, geographer, pilgrim, Trappist monk, priest, abolitionist, translator, folklorist, hermit, fort-builder, and martyr. Throughout these travels and transformations, Charles searched for a vocation that would reflect his convictions and his experience of God. In his last fifteen years, he settled in a remote part of the Sahara, and focused on self-denial, contemplation, and charity. He claimed the nomadic Tuareg as his brothers, the desert as his earthly home.

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 seek 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. Pope Francis now speaks full of the conviction that the youth will have great impact-and he challenges them to their best. The pope affirms the sacred time of youth as a time of dreams and decision, of maturity, courage, discernment, and valiant commitment. And he considers a plan for action that will take young people forward quickly, amid fears and hopes, into the work of a life with mission and purpose.


For the young and young at heart, this exhortation will stir all who read it to seek a newness of life in the promise of Christ's Resurrection. Christus Vivit is vital for youth and young adults, as they live out their vocation in the Church and their mission in the world. The exhortation is also an important read for pastors, parents, educators, families, youth and young adult ministries, and all Christian young people.

COENOBIUM: REFLECTIONS ON MONASTIC COMMUNITY

COENOBIUM: REFLECTIONS ON MONASTIC COMMUNITY
$19.95

After sixty years of living in a Cistercian community, Michael Casey combines his down-to-earth observations about the joys and challenges of living in community with an appreciation of the deeper meanings of cenobitic life, taking into account the changes in both theory and practice that have occurred in his lifetime. He invites his readers, especially monks and nuns, to reflect on their own experiences of community as a means of seeing a path forward into the future.

Many of the key components of monastic community have kept the same names for more than a millennium. In an age of paradigm shift, Michael Casey invites readers to examine these essential practices of community life and to ask how they might be envisioned in a way that speaks to our contemporaries.

COME & SEE: HOW THE TEACHINGS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH LEAD US TO JESUS CHRIST

COME & SEE: HOW THE TEACHINGS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH LEAD US TO JESUS CHRIST
$14.95
Jesus Christ is the most influential man who ever lived. But do you really know Him? Many will answer "Yes" to this question. Yet, given the various conflicting opinions today about Jesus and His teachings, it is clear that many people have incomplete or false perception about Him. It is the premise of Come and See that the Catholic Church holds the key to discovering the truth about Him. This book demonstrates the Christ-centeredness of the Church's teachings, the way in which those teachings bring us closer to Jesus. When the disciples ask where the Lord is staying, He replies simply, "Come and See" (John 1:39). This book extends the same invitation to all who wish to draw closer to Him and feel called to seriously investigate the teachings of Catholicism. Offering a thorough exposition of the Church's main teachings, this book will help the reader go beyond merely knowing what the Church teaches to understanding why she teaches it, and how her doctrines really do bring us closer to Jesus.

COMPASSION: A REFLECTION ON THE CHRISTIAN LIFE

COMPASSION: A REFLECTION ON THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
$10.95

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.”

CONFESSOR'S HANDBOOK (P)

CONFESSOR'S HANDBOOK (P)
$16.95
Many today suggest that the sacrament of reconciliation is in crisis. The number of practicing Catholics who seek out the sacrament has, according to many studies, greatly diminished in recent years. No one is suggesting that the need for forgiveness and reconciliation has diminished. Bishops, priests, and other pastoral ministers are often frustrated in their efforts to invite Catholics to the sacrament. Confessors are often left wondering about their role in the crisis. Father Kurt Stasiak offers a major contribution to the dilemma with this very practical, contemporary, and realistic guide, now revised and expanded, for those who hear confessions. Written with the perspective of modern sacramental theology and the best insights of pastoral care today, this book will help confessors to revive their own interest and commitment to the sacrament. This book has received an imprimatur from Most Reverend Daniel M. Buechlin, OSB, archbishop of Indianapolis. Priests, whether newly ordained or veterans, seminarians, and professors in seminary who teach courses on the sacrament of reconciliation, will find this to be an indispensable help in their work. +
