JESUS OF NAZARETH: ARCHEOLOGISTS RETRACING THE FOOTSTEPS OF CHRIST

JESUS OF NAZARETH: ARCHEOLOGISTS RETRACING THE FOOTSTEPS OF CHRIST
$21.95

Michael Hesemann's archaeological biography, Mary of Nazareth, was a best-selling work that has been translated into several languages. In this work Hesemann set out once again to the Holy Land on a search for traces of the New Testament. In this sequel, his interest is focused on the central figure of human history: Jesus of Nazareth, whom Christians acknowledge as the Son of God and the Messiah.

In this unique book, Hesemann is tracking down the profound mystery of the Incarnation by which God became man, striving to deepen our understanding of the historical Jesus of Nazareth and the world in which he lived. With Bible in hand, he diligently visited all the places where Jesus lived and worked--Bethlehem, Nazareth, Capernaum, and Jerusalem.

JESUS: FIRST CENTURY RABBI

JESUS: FIRST CENTURY RABBI
$23.99
This bold, fresh look at the historical Jesus and the Jewish roots of Christianity challenges both Jews and Christians to re-examine their understanding of Jesus' commitment to his Jewish faith. Instead of emphasizing the differences between the two religions, this groundbreaking text explains how the concepts of vicarious atonement, mediation, incarnation, and Trinity are actually rooted in classical Judaism. Using the cutting edge of scholarly research, Rabbi Zaslow dispels the myths of disparity between Christianity and Judaism without diluting the unique features of each faith. Jesus: First Century Rabbi is a breath of fresh air for Christians and Jews who want to strengthen and deepen their own faith traditions.

KEEPING COMPANY WITH ST. IGNATIUS: WALKING THE CAMINO

KEEPING COMPANY WITH ST. IGNATIUS: WALKING THE CAMINO
$19.99

When Luke Larson and his wife Evie embarked on a 500-mile pilgrimage across northern Spain, their purpose was to experience walking as a way of keeping company with Jesus and his companions, of both earth and heaven, such as Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Keeping Company is filled with personal, luminously candid, and often amusing stories of the couple's experiences along the Way of Saint James. More than anything, this book invites you to step off the treadmill of self-effort in your quest to experience God more intimately through the spiritual practice of walking, literally, with God.

LADY OF KNOCK CD

ROSARY OF KNOCK CD
$15.95

The title track “Lady of Knock” was written by Dana and Damien Scallon in 1981, immediately after they visited the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock, in Co. Mayo, Ireland. This hymn commemorates the apparition of August 21st, 1879, when the Blessed Virgin, St Joseph, St John the Evangelist and Jesus Christ (the Lamb of God) surrounded with angels, appeared at the gable wall of the local parish church of St John the Baptist. The apparition remained there for almost two hours and was witnessed by 1fifteen villagers aged from five years, to seventy four years old. Dana and Damien’s hymn is now the official theme song of the Shrine. It was sung in old St Patrick’s Cathedral, NY, during the 2017 reinternment of John Curry; the youngest witness of the Knock apparition. This CD also includes the iconic, "Christ Be Beside Me" (St. Patrick's Breastplate), "Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace", “Praise the Lord” and other beautiful hymns.

LECTION DIVINA: FROM GOD'S WORD TO OUR LIVES

LECTION DIVINA: FROM GOD'S WORD TO OUR LIVES
$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) explores lectio divia, which is a principle practiced in many monastic houses today.

The Bible is ancient, enigmatic, and from a culture vastly different from our own. That's why most of us find it hard to read. So how can we understand its importance in the church, and how can it enrich our lives? Central to lectio divina is the conviction that to read the Bible faithfully and prayerfully is to learn an ancient art - by entering into dialogue with the God who speaks to each of us through the biblical page. Enzo Bianchi touches on the essentials of the history of lectio, from the brilliant thinker Origen in the third century to the development of historical criticism in the modern era. He explains how to do lectio and how to understand and implement its four "moments" - lectio, meditatio, oratio, contemplatio. This is not simply a book about how to approach the Bible, because Scripture ultimately wants to lead us beyond itself, to the truth and mystery of Christ that can never be captured fully in the written word.

LENTEN HEALING

LENTEN HEALING
$13.95
Based on the popular spiritual healing program designed by Bob Schuchts and the John Paul II Healing Center, Lenten Healing offers a twist to traditional Lenten fasting: instead of giving up chocolate, give up your sin. This daily Lenten devotional offers a unique approach to fasting, helping you reexamine the psychological and spiritual roots of sin in your life while sharing reflections and prayer exercises for overcoming sinful habits and acquiring virtuous ones.

Lent is the ideal time to identify and address "spiritual blind spots"--unacknowledged emotional wounds and false ideas that hinder your prayer life and worship.

During each week of Lent, Ken Kniepmann of the John Paul II Healing Center breaks open one of the seven deadly sins (pride, lust, gluttony, sloth, anger, envy, and greed) and its corresponding virtue (humility, chastity, abstinence, diligence, patience, kindness, and liberality). You'll start by learning about the sin and how it manifests itself in daily life and thought patterns. Then you'll move into reflection and prayer exercises that guide you through the process of renouncing that week's sin and resolving to adopt that week's virtue.

Fasting, the practice of giving up pleasures or comforts, allows us to grow in holiness by putting our desires to a kind of death. Obvious examples include giving up a habit such as a favorite food, sleeping in, or late-night TV--but what happens when you try to give up your sins while recognizing the deeper reasons you commit them in the first place? By seeing those connections and praying specifically for God's insight, healing, and revelation, you'll be able to experience God's mercy and love to a greater capacity.

Kniepmann helps you see how the depth of Catholic teaching is connected to your daily life. Sin isn't just an activity; it is a place of the heart (the interior life) and the movement of the heart (toward or away from sin) as related to thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. By the time Easter arrives, you'll possess a deeper understanding of sin and emotional wounds as impediments to intimacy with God and come away with tangible, practical tools for addressing those impediments in your life.

LESSONS FROM SAINT BENEDICT: FIND JOY IN DAILY LIFE

LESSONS FROM SAINT BENEDICT: FIND JOY IN DAILY LIFE
$14.95

Part of a collection written over twenty years, Lessons from Saint Benedict contains 26 letters written by Donald Raila, O.S.B., a Benedictine monk of Saint Vincent Archabbey. Using the 1500 year old Rule of Benedict and Benedictine spirituality as his foundation, Father Donald offers words of spiritual encouragement and guidance for persevering through the journey of daily life. With the Gospel and Rule of Benedict as guides, Raila says, we can learn to see God’s graces in every dimension of our lives, even the most seemingly mundane. Father Donald provides both serious and light-hearted examples from his own life to demonstrate how we can renew and strengthen our spirituality through the daily grind, and perhaps even find joy in the process.

Some of the topics addressed include:
•Anxiety •Boredom •Change •Choices •Communication •Death •Desire •Detachment •Fear •Hospitality •Humility •Loss •Materialism •Order •Patience •Rushing •Sacrifice •Stewardship •Youth

Praise for Lessons from Saint Benedict
He shows us again and again ways to recognize and eventually even overcome those things that impede our spiritual growth.
—Father Benedict Groeschel, CFR

Fr. Donald writes simply, gently, and candidly, aiming to profit [spiritually] rather than to impress.
—Hugh Feiss, O.S.B. in Cistercian Studies Quarterly

They are a treasury of homey, conversational, yet deeply profound, musings on various Benedictine values. He often reveals a lot about his own spiritual journey by using very specific examples from his day-to-day life and showing how he had to wrestle with the ordinary to see the sacred. At less than five pages each, these “lessons” would make excellent lectio material for monastic or lay readers, or provocative conversation starters for oblate groups.
—The American Monastic Newsletter

FATHER DONALD S. RAILA, O.S.B., is a Benedictine monk of Saint Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. He has been the Director of Oblates since 1988, and during that time has written quarterly letters to the community of Oblates and friends of Saint Vincent Archabbey.

LET THERE BE LIGHT

LET THERE BE LIGHT
$10.95
Let There Be Light is an easy-to-use devotional that encourages you to experience the light of God in your daily life. This book offers you a personal, thirty-day retreat based on the spiritual insight and wisdom of St. Hildegard of Bingen, the Benedictine who was canonized in 2012 and who became only the fourth woman to be elevated as a Doctor of the Church. Part of the bestselling 30 Days with a Great Spiritual Teacher series, Let There Be Light will help you find your way through the darkness and into the light of divine love.

First published in 1997 and now back in print, Let There Be Light is an excellent prayer companion for busy people who want to root their spiritual practice in the solid ground of St. Hildegard of Bingen's timeless and timely teachings on living in the light of God. Hildegard (1098-1179) was a renowned Benedictine abbess and a popular preacher, teacher, and healer who has been venerated by Christians for centuries. She was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in May of 2012 and in October of that same year was elevated as a Doctor of the Church.

Rather than a mystic who wrote out of an intense personal experience of God, St. Hildegard is more properly seen as a visionary and a prophet who provides complex images in her writing that are ripe for interpretation. As you reflect on the images offered to her by God, Hildegard offers you a path to live in the light of God each moment of the day.

All titles in the 30 Days with a Great Spiritual Teacher series contain a brief and accessible morning meditation drawn from the author's writings, a simple mantra for use throughout the day, and a night prayer to focus your thoughts as the day ends.

LETTERS TO JACOB: MOSTLY ABOUT CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER

LETTERS TO JACOB: MOSTLY ABOUT CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER
$7.99
For thirty years, Fr. John-Julian has practiced contemplative prayer daily as a monk of the Order of Julian of Norwich. The book is a record of letters of advice written to a young seminarian who was interested in investigating the practical dimensions of the contemplative way for himself, full of questions: "What is all this contemplative prayer people are talking about these days? I never heard anything about that back in my parish. Is this really part of the Christian tradition or some New Age import from Buddhism or some other -ism?" The answering letters have been edited, re-written, expanded, and polished into Letters to Jacob: Mostly About Contemplative Prayer (with a nod to C.S. Lewis)--a rare look at the contemplative life from the inside, with a series of cautions and warnings based on the realities of the contemplative way, not some intellectual concept. It faces into the unpopular but essential dynamics that few others have dared to present, with all the masks removed. There are a few theological side trips as well, exploring subjects like the nature of God, sin and repentance, salvation, good liturgy, the keeping of rules, and the spiritual value of bad posture.

LIGHT OF FORGIVENESS

LIGHT OF FORGIVENESS
$9.99
This book is for anyone who is hesitant about Confession. "Our understanding of the sacrament reveals our image of God. If our image of God is one of an uncompromising judge, then the sacrament can fill us with dread," Father Paul begins. Instead of coming to Confession to avoid judgment and hellfire, Farren paints a picture of the sacrament that has a loving God behind it who longs for a restored relationship with his children. There are two who confess: God and the penitent. In fact, God is the primary confessor when he confesses his forgiveness for and trust in the one who is celebrating the sacrament. Confession is about God's great love for us!

LIGHT UPON LIGHT: LITERARY GUIDE TO PRAY

LIGHT UPON LIGHT: LITERARY GUIDE TO PRAY
$18.99
"As Lauren Winner says "Maybe it's not right to think of feasting during the somewhat penitential season of Advent, but that is what this book is: a sumptuous feast."

In keeping with At the Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time ("a thing of beauty" and "a literary treasure trove and devotional feast," two reviewers called it) this collection contains daily and weekly inspirational readings to help the reader prayerfully experience God through the liturgical seasons of winter. Well-loved classics by Andersen, Dickens, and Eliot join contemporary works by Frederick Buechner and Gary Schmidt. Poems by Donne, Herbert, and Rossetti are paired with newer voices: Scott Cairns, Benjamín Alire Sáenz, Susanna Childress, and Amit Majmudar. Readers are invited to experience Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany in its raw strangeness, stripped of sentiment, and to turn toward Emmanuel.

LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART: SPIRITUAL LIVING WITH THE RULE OF SAINT BENEDICT

LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART: SPIRITUAL LIVING WITH THE RULE OF SAINT BENEDICT
$15.95
For today's hungry Christians, teachings on the Rule of Saint Benedict by one of the twentieth century's best-loved Catholic writers. "Benedict is saying, 'Wake up! Open your eyes! Open your ears! Let the divine life and light invade you so that your life is filled with aspiration, joy and hope.'" -M. Basil Pennington At Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Monastery in Conyers, Georgia, Abbot Basil Pennington gave weekly talks to the monks on the Rule of Saint Benedict. Now, readers and listeners are able to sit and learn from one of the most important spiritual teachers of the last century. The talks have been lovingly transcribed and organized into book form, and they have also been exquisitely preserved on a single compact disk. This ancient Rule, written in the sixth century, continues to be a guide for men and women wishing to live a Christian life. Beginning with the prologue, Abbot Basil reads and comments on selected passages, providing the monks with insights into applying them in daily living. He takes the Latin phrases from the Rule and translates them into wisdom for the journey. Using his own monastic experiences, Basil illustrates how the Rule is more than a guide - it is a way of life to be lived in love for Jesus Christ and in service to others. The Listen With Your Heart Compact Disc (double CD) is the recorded version of M. Basil Pennington giving nine of the talks from which the book is transcribed.

LISTENING COMMUNITY

LISTENING COMMUNITY
$24.95
This new commentary by Sister Aquinata Böckmann discusses the Prologue and chapters 1, 2, and 3 of the Rule of St. Benedict. In a lectio regulae she plumbs the depths of Benedict's vision. Listen, the first word of the Prologue, is a keyword that describes the main stance of the individual monastic, the superior, and the entire community. Listening to the Scriptures and in them to Christ guides individuals and the community on how to "run on the way of God's commandments" toward the goal of communal life in and with Christ. The first three chapters of the Rule concretize the principles of this communal spirituality of listening: the importance of a rule and a pastor for maintaining the community's attentiveness to life; the superior's responsibility to listen to individuals within the community; and the mutual listening between leader and community members, regardless of their age. As in her earlier books Sister Aquinata proves to be a true guide into the spirit of Benedict's Rule, which provides sound principles for listening in common in a community of life.
