LITTLE DAILY WISDOM FROM THE EARLY CHURCH

LITTLE DAILY WISDOM FROM THE EARLY CHURCH
$18.99
Following Christ's example, many early Christians around the Mediterranean retreated to the desert for contemplation. These were ordinary men and women with a strong spiritual awareness. By the fourth century thousands had endured the rigors of desert survival. While they accepted visitors, they preferred long hours of solitude and quiet. They were not prolific writers. Instead, people jotted down the things they said. These sayings and anecdotes ultimately became parts of written collections. A Little Daily Wisdom from the Early Church gathers the best of this material, expressing it in clear, modern English. Each brief insight becomes a nugget for our own daily meditation throughout a year. With this book we can experience spiritual growth in our own quiet corner of this busy world.

LITTLE FLOWERS OF SAINT FRANCIS

LITTLE FLOWERS OF SAINT FRANCIS
$10.99

These stories of St. Francis and his first followers have inspired millions of people over the centuries.

LIVING THE MASS: DEEPER LOOK AT THE SACRAMENT OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST

LIVING THE MASS: DEEPER LOOK AT THE SACRAMENT OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST
$15.99
In "Living the Mass" we encounter the Holy Eucharist as paschal mystery, the Source and Summit of the Christian Life. We encounter God s love for us through what God has done and is doing for us in the Eucharist. The book presents the paschal mystery defined in a Trinitarian mode as the passion, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus and the sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. It also presents new theology on the paschal mystery based primarily on the abandonment text of Matthew 27:46.
God gives God s self to us in love through the Mass as the ongoing work of redemption, and we imitate that love in response by living the Mass in everyday life professing Christ, growing in virtue, overcoming sinful tendencies, increasing in knowledge of God, and exercising faith, hope, and love."

MAKE ROOM: A CHILD'S GUIDE TO LENT & EASTER

MAKE ROOM: A CHILD'S GUIDE TO LENT & EASTER
$15.99
While the Advent season is filled with fun and expectations, Lent can be hard for children. It s travels through frightening places, loaded with themes of self-denial and death. How can children approach this season in a way that is meaningful and not frightening? "Make Room" presents Lent as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God. Other books offer excellent ideas for going through the Lenten season with children, but "Make Room" uniquely connects its projects to the story of Jesus. Simple and practical activities such as baking bread, having a neighbor over for dinner, uncluttering your room, and watching less TV become acts of justice and kindness, part of a life of following and imitating Christ, and a way to make room for God in our lives and in the world around us.
Other books tell the Passion narrative for young readers; this unique book integrates themes of hospitality and self-giving that echo Jesus ministry, Jesus entire life. "Make Room" invites children to wonder about the story, to encounter Lent with all their senses, and to experience activities in Lent as part of a life of discipleship."

MAKING ALL THINGS NEW: AN INVITATION TO THE SPIRITUAL LIFE

product image
$15.99
"During the past few years, various friends have asked me, 'What do you mean when you speak about the spiritual life?' Every time this question has come up, I have wished I had a small and simple book which could offer the beginning of a response. I have felt that there was a place for a text that could be read within a few hours and could not only explain what the spiritual life is but also create a desire to live it. This feeling caused me to write "Making All Things New.".."

"The beginning of the spiritual life is often difficult not only because the powers which cause us to worry are so strong but also because the presence of God's Spirit seems barely noticeable. If, however, we are willing to live a life of prayer and practice the disciplines of solitude and community, a new hunger will make itself known. This new hunger is the first sign of God's presence. When we remain attentive to this divine presence, we will be led always deeper into the kingdom. There, to our joyful surprise, we will discover that the power of our worries is weakening and all things are being made new."

MAN OF BLESSING (PAPERBACK)

MAN OF BLESSING (PAPERBACK)

Praise for Man of Blessing
 
“The difference with Butcher’s book… is the exploration of Benedict’s unusual life; his relationship with his twin sister, Scholastica; and the illumination of the saint’s miracles. The book’s readability will make it easy for patrons to escape into late Roman Culture and find peace in monastic simplicity.” -Library Journal starred review

“This remarkable book is a delightful blend of legend and solid history.” –Sr. Lenora Black OSB, Spirit & Life

“Throughout the book [Butcher]…interweaves some good research that expands the context of Benedict’s world and adds dimension to his character.” -American Benedictine Review

“Butcher’s life of St. Benedict is an excellent example of modern hagiography, written with imagination in a contemporary style based on historical facts and tradition.” -Catholic Library World

MEANING IS IN THE WAITING

MEANING IS IN THE WAITING
$14.99
Advent is about learning to love the waiting... Waiting is the primary lesson of Advent, says Paula Gooder. In the company of the biblical characters with whom the candles on the Advent wreath are traditionally associated, she helps us to discover very different kinds of waiting: * Abraham and Sarah--who waited a lifetime for the fulfillment of God's promises.* The Hebrew prophets--who waited for God's intervention, both longed for and feared.* John the Baptist--whose ministry marked the end of one era and anticipated the new.* Mary--whose life was shaped by waiting and by events beyond her control. The Meaning Is in the Waiting is arranged for daily reading in the hectic run-up to Christmas. This thoughtful book will enable you to grow more fully into a way of being that is expectant rather than urgent, more focused on God's presence right now than on some imagined future. You will venture on this journey in companionship with the God who waits with us.
