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.

ESSENTIAL HENRI NOUWEN

ESSENTIAL HENRI NOUWEN
$16.95
"We always have a choice to live the moment as a cause of resentment or as a cause for joy."--Henri Nouwen (1932-1996)

The insights of Henri Nouwen have shown millions of people how to choose joy in any moment--even moments full of pain and brokenness. Few spiritual writers have ever spoken so powerfully and directly to the heart as he did, in part because he compassionately bared his own soul and struggles to his readers, but also because he deeply understood that God can be discovered in every aspect of ourselves, even--almost especially--in the parts we find difficult to acknowledge.

This anthology of Nouwen's teaching covers all his major themes--God, love, life, death, psychology, woundedness, healing, and social action--and is drawn from among his more than forty books. It's the perfect, compact introduction to this brilliant and humble Catholic priest whom Christianity Today called "one of the world's great spiritual writers."

EUCHARIST AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH

EUCHARIST AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH
$5.00

Many faithful today have difficulty with the celebration of the Eucharist.  They do not identify with it, and the Eucharist is not the place for them in which they encounter God.  This volume attempts to explain and to redefine the traditional concepts of the essence of the Eucharist.  The Eucharist is a matter of change in our life.  In it, we merge into our redeemed and liberated existence, into the mystery of life which even transcends death.

EVEN THOUGH I WALK: ONE WOMAN'S JOURNEY OF PRAYER IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH

product image
$19.95

"To be honest, at this point only two things interest me: my oncologist's advice and if you can teach me to pray."

So began a two-year correspondence between a medical doctor who became a priest, Benedictine monk, and now prior of Montserrat--the monastery that is a spiritual, cultural, historical, and environmental icon in Catalonia--and an accomplished and beloved cardiologist, scientist, mentor, daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend with a newly diagnosed lung tumor. In this profoundly honest book, two spiritual seekers on two different life-paths walk together through the valley of the shadow of death, praying the psalms in joy and anguish, doubt and praise.

The letters and conversations shared between Magda and Fr. Ignasi offer deep and poignant insights into the very human--and quotidian--dynamics of the life-and-death journey we all face.

FAITH WITH BENEFITS

FAITH WITH BENEFITS
$29.95
Hookup culture has become widespread on college campuses, and Catholic colleges are no exception. Indeed, despite the fact that most students on Catholic campuses report being unhappy with casual sexual encounters, most studies have found no difference between Catholic colleges and their secular counterparts when it comes to hooking up. Drawing on a survey of over 1000 students from 26 institutions, as well as in-depth interviews, Jason King argues that religious culture on Catholic campuses can, in fact, have an impact on the school's hookup culture, but when it comes to how that relationship works: it's complicated.

In Faith with Benefits, King shows the complex way these dynamics play out at Catholic colleges and universities. There is no straightforward relationship between orthodoxy and hookup culture--some of the schools with the weakest Catholic identities also have weaker hookup cultures. And not all students define the culture in the same way. Some see a hookup as just a casual encounter, where others see it as a gateway to a relationship.

Faith with Benefits gives voice to students, revealing how their faith, the faith of their friends, and the institutional structures of their campus give rise to different hookup cultures. In doing so, King addresses the questions of students who don't know where to turn for practical guidance on how to navigate ever-shifting campus cultures, reconciling their faith with their relationships. Students, parents, faculty, administrators-indeed, anyone who cares about Catholic teenagers and young adults-will find much of value in this book.

    FINDING GOD THROUGH MEDITATION

    FINDING GOD THROUGH MEDITATION
    $13.95
    Finding God Through Meditation is the second book of Dan Burke's Navigating series that brings the wisdom of the saints into your hands. This series is a goldmine for Catholics to deepen your relationship with God and to grow into a deeper union with Jesus Christ. Finding God Through Meditation by St. Peter of Alcantara is little known, as is the saint himself. Don't let that fool you. He directed the great mystic St. Teresa of Avila on difficult questions she had about prayer, for which she has written about in her Interior Castle. St. Teresa turned to this great treatise on meditation by St. Peter for guidance. St. Peter of Alcantara's work is a sure antidote to much of the false teaching of our day. His insights on prayer are profound and far reaching. You will find here the gems God that has in store for all who truly desire to grow in relationship with Him in prayer. Finding God Through Meditation gives you a window into perspectives on prayer that should challenge and enrich you for years to come.

    FINDING HAPPINESS: MONASTIC STEPS FOR A FULFILLING LIFE

    FINDING HAPPINESS: MONASTIC STEPS FOR A FULFILLING LIFE
    $19.95

    Why is being happy such an imperative in our world today? What is the meaning of happiness? In this book Abbot Christopher Jamison turns to monastic wisdom for answers. He explains that, in essence, happiness is a gift not an achievement. It is the fruit of giving and receiving blessings. Following the same accessible and engaging format of his previous book, Finding Sanctuary, Abbot Christopher examines different aspects of happiness and tells us what monastic wisdom has to say about them. In doing so, he offers steps for the journey of finding happiness.

    Christopher Jamison is abbot of Worth Abbey, a Benedictine monastery near London. He is also president of the International Commission on Benedictine Education and sits on the Council of the alliance for International Monasticism, a body that promotes links between monasteries across the North/South divide. He is author of Finding Sanctuary: Monastic Steps for Everyday Life and was the host of the popular BBC documentary series The Monastery.

    FORGIVENESS MAKES YOU FREE: A DRAMATIC STORY OF HEALING FROM THE HEART OF FWANDA

    product image
    $16.95

    "'Jesus, where are you?' I prayed every night as I wept . . . I felt I had failed as a priest, for I had preached love and the people made genocide. . . .Then I heard God speak to me. Jesus wanted me to use these experiences to evangelize later. It was then that I knew my life would be spared. God would make a way."

    During the 25th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga tells the dramatic story of how he survived while losing more than eighty of his family members and 45,000 of his parishioners in the killings. In the aftermath, Fr. Ubald experienced a renewed sense of purpose as a minister of reconciliation and a healing evangelist in his homeland and around the world. In Forgiveness Makes You Free, he offers five spiritual principles that can help those traumatized by the past to experience healing and peace in Christ.

    In 1994 the world looked on in disbelief and horror as Rwanda erupted in violent bloodshed. All across the landlocked African country, militant Hutus rose up to exterminate the Tutsi population, including women and young children. One hundred days later, a million bodies littered fields, streets, and even churches. Now, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, a powerful testimony emerges of the power of God to bring peace and reconciliation into hearts full of fear and hate.

    In Forgiveness Makes You Free, Fr. Ubald Rugirangoga shares his own dramatic story of how he survived the genocide and its traumatic aftermath. He testifies about how God spared his life so that he might help others with deep physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds to experience peace and healing. In retelling the story of how he forgave the man who killed his family and cared for the man's children while he was in prison, Fr. Ubald demonstrates how showing mercy can facilitate true forgiveness even in the most painful circumstances of our lives.

    Throughout the book, Fr. Ubald teaches about five spiritual keys that draw us to Christ, the only source of lasting peace:

  • be thankful and have faith
  • choose to forgive
  • denounce evil
  • decide to live for Jesus
  • claim the blessing
  • Each chapter combines Fr. Ubald's story with reflection questions that guide readers along their own path of healing: from fear to faith, from shame to freedom, from isolation to reconciliation, from resentment to mercy, and from conflict to peace.

    The final chapter offers a guided meditation to help those who need to experience the power of God to release those held in bondage by fear and hate and to find the secret of peace. An appendix contains information about "The Mushaka Reconciliation Project," a catechetical tool that has been used successfully by parishes in Rwanda, and could easily be adapted by parishes in the United States, to mediate reconciliation between individuals and groups who have become estranged by violence, trauma, and ethnic or cultural divisions.
