GOD WITH US - READER'S EDITION

GOD WITH US - READER'S EDITION
$18.99
Christmas is the season most difficult to grasp and understand in all its spiritual richness. The sentimentality and commercialism that dominate the season tend to obscure the profound mystery at its heart: the Incarnation. God with Us provides the perfect way to slow down and reconnect with the liturgical and sacramental traditions of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. In this volume of daily meditations, some of today's most esteemed writers on the spiritual life offer a tapestry of reflection, Scripture, prayer, and history.

Contributors include Beth Bevis, Scott Cairns, Emilie Griffin, Richard John Neuhaus, Kathleen Norris, Eugene Peterson, and Luci Shaw.

"The birth of Jesus, kept fresh in our imaginations and prayers in song and story, keeps our feet on solid ground and responsive to every nuance of obedience and praise evoked by the life all around us."
-Eugene Peterson, from the Introduction

GOD, WHERE ARE YOU

GOD, WHERE ARE YOU
$16.99
Discussion around the bestseller The Benedict Option by Rod Dreher has led many people to want to know more about monastic principles. This book by the modern monastic prior Enzo Bianchi (of the Bose Community in Switzerland) focuses on the human cry, "God, where are you?"

This has been the cry of humankind since time began, and Enzo Bianchi finds God's traces in the searching of significant figures from the Old Testament. We are challenged to question our own certainties like Abraham, suffer torment like Jacob, or falter and become discouraged in the face of a daunting task like Moses. The search for God involves exploring what is profoundly human, and ultimately the greatest manifestation of humanity is to be found in the figure of Christ. That is why we cannot think of God today without turning our minds to Jesus. It is the divine within us who really poses the question, "God, where are you?," so, when we truly begin to search for an answer, we discover that God is already looking for us!

GOOD PARENTS TOUGH TIMES

GOOD PARENTS TOUGH TIMES
$8.97
Timely Guidance and Inspiration for Parents of Children in Crisis
 
The bestselling authors of The Roller-Coaster Years, Parenting 911, and Cliques draw deeply on their faith and the rich Catholic spiritual tradition in this guide for parents of children in crisis.

In Good Parents, Tough Times, authors Charlene C. Giannetti and Margaret Sagarese focus on the spiritual well-being of the parent as much as the behavior of the child. The authors draw parallels between the real-life struggles parents face today and those endured by the saints. They believe that the qualities that enabled the saints to face great troubles—charity, knowledge, faith, hope, patience, serenity, truth, and humility—can help parents cope with a troubled child.

“This book provides what every parent needs: a chance to learn from the saints and to look to them for encouragement and practical advice.”
—Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper
“Deep, yet simple and practical, this book will help parents and all who have teens in their lives to know better how to listen, pray, and help.”
—Fr. Paul Keenan, author of Heartstorming
“[Good Parents, Tough Times] not only offers parents the saints’ very practical advice about raising teens with faith, hope, and love, but also helps parents receive the grace of the saints’ powerful intercession.”
—Bert Ghezzi, author of Voices of the Saints and Mystics and Miracles

GRACE: ON THE JOURNEY TO GOD

GRACE: ON THE JOURNEY TO GOD
$16.99
Benedictine monastic spirituality has emerged as an antidote to the spiritual and cultural challenges facing people of faith today. In this book, the author focuses specifically on GRACE, and the benevolence of God as it expresses itself in many different ways along our spiritual journey. What is a person likely to experience when beginning to give up him or herself conscientiously to the spiritual journey?
In this beautiful guide, gradually, we come to realize that everything that happens in our lives is somehow the gift of our loving Father.

Every journey is ultimately individual. As Casey explains, what you hear within your own spirit is more significant than what he can say. But his aim is to help you listen to the voice of God in your heart.

Each raw, honest prayer is accompanied by the Scripture texts that inspired it.

    HORSES SPEAK OF GOD: HOW HORSES CAN TEACH US TO LISTEN & BE TRANSFORMED

    HORSES SPEAK OF GOD: HOW HORSES CAN TEACH US TO LISTEN & BE TRANSFORMED
    $16.99

    This is what happens when a writer, preacher, and lover of words encounters some of creation's wisest theologians...horses.

    First, she argues with them. They are, after all, horses. What could they possibly know about life and God that theologians haven't already written? But slowly she engages their language and listens to their holy wisdom, attending to how they express their being, their actions, and their relationships. She allows horses to draw her out of the faith of intellect and into a deeper faith of emotion, body, and soul.

    With edgy honesty and humor, Brock invites all who have longed for a deeper spiritual encounter with God to join her in the saddle (and occasionally on the ground) to discover how horses speak of God and how their ways of knowing help us to discover ways of God speaking to us.

    HOW TO LIVE: WHAT THE RULE OF BENEDICT TEACHES US ABOUT HAPPINESS, MEANING, COMMUNITY

    HOW TO LIVE: WHAT THE RULE OF BENEDICT TEACHES US ABOUT HAPPINESS, MEANING, COMMUNITY
    $16.95

    The Rule of St. Benedict arose from an era when a great civilization was threatened by violence, economic forces that favored the wealthy, political leaders that lacked the trust of the public, and rampant xenophobia. Similar to the anxieties and frustrations of the 6th century, we are living in a time where societies need to stress community over competition, consensus over conflict, simplicity over self gain, and silence over the constant chatter and distractions of our lives.

    In How to Live, Judith Valente explores the key elements of the rule and clearly demonstrates how incorporating this ancient wisdom can change the quality and texture of our lives offering a way forward from the divisions gripping our country. These fresh and profound explorations are inspiring and thoughtful, and will motivate readers to live a meaningful life.

    I ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR ME

    I ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR ME
    $12.95
    In his first appearance as newly elected pope, mindful of the challenging tasks ahead of him, Pope Francis humbly asked the crowds who came to rejoice at his election to pray for him. From this request I ask you to pray for me comes the title of this inspirational little book, a collection of homilies, addresses, and audiences given by Pope Francis in the days following his election on March 13 up until Easter Monday, April 1, 2013.

    "And now I would like to give the blessing, but first first I ask a favor of you: before the bishop blesses his people, I ask you to pray to the Lord that he will bless me: the prayer of the people asking the blessing for their bishop. Let us make, in silence, this prayer: your prayer over me."

    The selections range from the first greeting of the Holy Father to addresses to the College of Cardinals, representatives of the communications media, representatives of the churches and ecclesial communities and of the different religions, to the diplomatic corps. And homilies include those given on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and of course Easter Sunday. Following these selections is a brief but informative biography of Pope Francis.

    One comes away from reading these entries with a feeling of being privy to many moving and enduring moments that will forever define Pope Francis papacy. Here is a book that offers a first glimpse into the mind and heart of our new pope, in his own words. It will find a wide readership among committed Catholics, those who may be thinking about a return to the church, and anyone interested in the future direction of the church.

    IN GOD'S HANDS: THE SPIRITUAL DIARIES OF JOHN PAUL II

    IN GOD'S HANDS: THE SPIRITUAL DIARIES OF JOHN PAUL II
    $34.99

    Available for the first time in English, the private reflections of the modern pope recently elevated to sainthood--deeply personal writings that reveal a spiritual leader who agonized over his service to God, continually questioning whether he was doing enough.

    As the head of the Roman Catholic Church for twenty-five years, from the final decades of the twentieth century to the first years of the new millennium, Pope John Paul II significantly impacted our world. As famous as a rock star, this powerful leader who conferred with numerous heads of state was the ultimate model of wisdom and religious commitment for numerous Catholics around the globe.

    Throughout much of his adult life, from 1962 until two years before his death in 2003, John Paul II kept a series of private diaries in which he disclosed his innermost thoughts, impressions, and concerns. Written in his native Polish and never before available in English until now, these journals provide intimate and deeply moving insight into a man, a priest, and a saint's spirituality and a life devoted completely to God.

    In God's Hands lays bare the soul of this powerful, influential statesman, revealing a devout man untouched by his celebrity status; a selfless servant of God who spent decades questioning whether he was worthy of the role he was called to carry out. Over forty years, from his bishopric in Krakow to his election to the papacy to his final years, one question guided him: "Am I serving God?"

    Entrusted to his personal secretary--who defied John Paul II's instructions to burn them after his death--these notebooks provide us with a privileged glimpse into the life of a humble man who never took for granted his mission or his exalted role in the church and in the world.
