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.

HANBOOK FOR CATHOLIC MOMS

HANBOOK FOR CATHOLIC MOMS
$17.95
The Handbook for Catholic Moms, Lisa M. Hendey's eminently practical and award-winning resource, has helped new parents balance and integrate the deeply personal needs of their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls with the demands of family life and faith commitment.

Since the first edition was published in 2010, it's become an indispensable resource for two generations of Catholic moms, offering a unique perspective on all aspects of life and honest advice from fellow moms on topics ranging from marriage and finances to stress management and parish life.

The Handbook for Catholic Moms is not a typical parenting book: It doesn't offer tips for calming a fussy baby or dealing with adolescent angst. In caring for yourself--heart, mind, body, and soul--you can better love and care for your family, community, and Church, according to Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and bestselling author of The Book of Saints for Catholic Moms and The Grace of Yes.

Hendey provides her personal stories and observations on a number of topics, including:

  • stress reduction and sleep
  • nurturing your marriage
  • engaging in Mass as a family
  • modeling lifelong learning to your children
  • balancing your career with your vocation as a mother

  • Each chapter includes relevant scripture references, quotations from saints or noted Catholic figures, commentary and perspectives from other Catholic writers, and checklists of suggested steps moms can take in bringing better balance and integration to their lives.

    HELPING TEENS WITH STRESS, ANXIETY & DEPRESSION: A FIELD GUIDE FOR CATHOLIC PARENTS, PASTORS & YOUTH LEADERS

    HELPING TEENS WITH STRESS, ANXIETY & DEPRESSION: A FIELD GUIDE FOR CATHOLIC PARENTS, PASTORS & YOUTH LEADERS
    $15.95

    Do you struggle to know when or if it's appropriate to step in to help a teen who seems stressed, anxious, or depressed? Do you know the signs to look for to determine whether a teen is in distress?

    In Helping Teens with Stress, Anxiety, and Depression, Roy Petitfils--a Catholic author, speaker, and psychotherapist--offers his personal experience, advice, and faith to give parents, pastors, and youth leaders the knowledge, courage, and tools they need to step in, make a difference, and be the presence of Christ for teens in crisis.

    Roy Petitfils knows what it's like to be an addicted, depressed teenager, filled with self-loathing and desperate for help. He describes himself at high school graduation as by far the largest person in his hometown and yet feeling as though he were "stuck in Harry Potter's invisibility cloak." Weighing more than 500 pounds, he was addicted to food and hated himself.

    Now a leading Catholic voice in youth advocacy and creator of the popular podcast Today's Teenager, Petitfils entered adulthood a very different person than he is today. His life was radically changed by a handful of people in college who reached out in friendship and helped him set a new course.

    Using personal life lessons and expertise gleaned from more than twenty-five years in youth ministry and private practice as a licensed counselor, Petitfils teaches parents, pastors, and youth leaders what they need to know about mental health issues among America's youth. Whether teens need help coping with healthy levels of stress or face persistent, more serious problems with anxiety and depression, Petitfils will help the adults in their lives get comfortable with stepping in.

    Petitfils offers information and advice on:

  • the major causes of stress and anxiety in teens today
  • differentiating healthy stress from toxic stress
  • simple steps to take after identifying a hurting kid, beginning with how to assess whether and how to step in
  • the art of listening
  • He explores the support and comfort available through the sacraments, Catholic devotions, different forms of prayer, and reading the Bible. Ultimately, Petitfils identifies how to gently, yet persuasively guide hurting young people to deeper trust in the tender mercies of God.

    HOLY SPIRIT, I PRAY

    HOLY SPIRIT, I PRAY
    $13.99

    Whether your spiritual life is in shambles or your faith is robust, whether you attend church or not, are angry at God or resting in God's embrace, you will discover in this book a path to authentic faith sifted through intense joy and disheartening loss, through breathtaking experiences and the nearly hidden reality of the Spirit tucked away in everyday life. In Holy Spirit, I Pray, you'll meet the Holy Spirit as you never have before--in prayers of uncanny candor and surprising beauty. Each raw, honest prayer is accompanied by the Scripture texts that inspired it.

    "Jack Levison studies, meditates, prays, and writes of the place of the Holy Spirit in our lives with more skill and understanding than anyone I know."--Eugene Peterson, author/translator of The Message

    HOPE TO DIE

    HOPE TO DIE
    $22.95
    As Catholics, we believe in the resurrection of the body. We profess it in our creed. We're taught that to bury and pray for the dead are corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We honor the dead in our Liturgy through the Rite of Christian burial. We do all of this, and more, because when Jesus Christ took on flesh for the salvation of our souls he also bestowed great dignity on our bodies.

    In Hope to Die: The Christian Meaning of Death and the Resurrection of the Body, Scott Hahn explores the significance of death and burial from a Catholic perspective. The promise of the bodily resurrection brings into focus the need for the dignified care of our bodies at the hour of death. Unpacking both Scripture and Catholic teaching, Hope to Die reminds us that we are destined for glorification on the last day.

    Our bodies have been made by a God who loves us. Even in death, those bodies point to the mystery of our salvation.

    HOPE UPON IMPACT: A MIRACULOUS TRUE STORY OF FAITH, LOVE & GOD'S GOODNESS

    HOPE UPON IMPACT: A MIRACULOUS TRUE STORY OF FAITH, LOVE & GOD'S GOODNESS
    $19.99

    On the lovely spring afternoon of April 20, 2018, a backyard tree cracked, and a heavy limb fell. 12-year-old Evelyn suffered a devastating blow to her head as she shielded her puppy. A significant, compressed skull fracture required emergency neurosurgery. This freak, life-threatening event shook the Overlease family to the core, and an unbelievable experience was instantly set in motion that may take a lifetime to fully understand.

    The astounding details surrounding Evelyn's accident, medical care, and recovery are crazier than fiction. First-time author Julie Overlease tells the story in close detail, with frankness and honesty. This is a book of hope and miracles, in which Evelyn's mother tells a story of faith in action during a time of crisis, of prayer through pain and darkness, of devoted friendship, and the great goodness and love of God.

    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.
