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.

LIVING THE MYSTERY

LIVING THE MYSTERY
$15.95
In this book, which follows on from the companion volume, Unfolding the Mystery, which was devoted to the liturgical year, Abbot Hugh reflects before his monastic brethren on some of the elements common to the life of all Christians - from baptism to the hope of eternal life. Here it is a question of Living the Mystery, that is, of allowing the revelation of Christ in us, present in the Church, to take possession of our whole life, personal and social ... As Abbot Hugh states, these reflections 'are no more than "markers" on the Christian way, attempts to say something, while we wait, about "the gifts that lie within our comprehension"'. But if they help stir a fresh sense of the goodness, truth and beauty of these gifts, if they help any to live with understanding and joy the mystery 'which was kept secret for long ages but is now disclosed' (Rom 16:25-26), 'this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory' (Col 1:27), their author will feel blessed himself. Comment on Abbot Hugh's previous book, Unfolding the Mystery: This is wisdom. Dom Aldhelm Cameron-Brown, Pax Dom Hugh's book reaches some high moments of reflection. Downside Review This is meat, at last! Sisters of the Gospel of Life An outstanding set of spiritual meditations on the liturgical year . . . his work draws on the riches of the monastic tradition and its spirituality in order to provide us with a deeply insightful set of reflections.

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

MAKING ALL THINGS NEW: AN INVITATION TO THE SPIRITUAL LIFE
$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."

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

MANUAL FOR WOMEN

MANUAL FOR WOMEN
$29.95
Manual for Women is for women who seek to grow closer to Christ and his Blessed Mother, for women who seek to discover or rediscover what it means to be a woman after God's own heart.

In Part I, noted Catholic author Danielle Bean, using examples from Scripture, the lives of the saints, and modern life, reminds women of today to embrace and cultivate their distinctive gifts:

  • Receptivity, or an openness and welcoming spirit toward others.Sensitivity, or an ability to see and understand the needs and feelings of others.
  • Compassion, or an instinct to suffer with and alleviate the suffering of others.
  • Beauty, or the recognition that the female body is a reflection of her great capacity for nurturing, whether she ever becomes a mother physically or not.
  • Generosity, or an extraordinary capacity for self-giving love.

  • She also reminds readers that they will embrace those gifts most perfectly if they imitate that most immaculate of women, Mary of Nazareth. Bean concludes with practical advice which every woman, whatever her state in life, will benefit from.

    In Part II, readers will be nourished by the depth and richness of the Catholic tradition's teaching on women. Church documents, wisdom of the saints, relevant passages from Scripture, wisdom from today's Catholic women, prayers, and hymns will inspire, delight, and edify women, young and old, single and married, consecrated to God in the religious life or a member of the laity.

    Now, perhaps more than ever, women need to be women. But what it means to be a woman has been so distorted by the various ideologies that the modern world imposes. Manual for Women serves as a reminder to women that authentic femininity (and, yes, authentic feminism) springs from an embrace, rather than a spurning, of the great and unique gifts God has bestowed on them, whether they be married or single, in religious life or a laywomen, a homemaker or a women who works outside the home, or, as so many women in today's hectic world are, some combination thereof!

    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.

    MEDITATIONS FOR LENT

    MEDITATIONS FOR LENT
    $12.95
    Even three hundred years ago, believers found it difficult to sustain for forty days the proper Lenten spirit. That's why even then, countless Christians turned to the writings of Bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet (1627-1704), whose great piety and simple eloquence won him renown as one of the greatest preachers of his time. From Bishop Bossuet's sermons and spiritual writings, believers drew ever greater Lenten wisdom and strength.

    Now translator Christopher Blum has selected from Bishop Bossuet's voluminous works fifty brief but remarkably powerful meditations that complement the daily readings at Mass during the Lenten season, thus offering to us the perfect companion for a thoughtful and fruitful Lent.

    If you read and meditate briefly on just one of them each day in Lent, I guarantee that this good French bishop's eloquence will soon have you not merely remembering the events of Christ's journey to His Crucifixion; it will have you spiritually walking with Him on that journey . . . which is precisely what we are called to do in Lent!

    With Bossuet, this Lent you will find yourself saying, "O Jesus! I present myself to you to make my journey in your company. O my Savior, receive your traveler! Here I am ready, holding on to nothing. Let me go with You to the Father."

    That's the fire that should burn in the heart of all Christians. This Lent, let Bishop Bossuet enkindle it in yours. Among the Meditations:

  • God Alone Suffices
  • Pray to God in Secret
  • The Truth and the Life
  • Tempted in the Desert
  • The Sign of Jonah
  • Love Your Enemies
  • This Is My Beloved Son
  • And You Will Be Forgiven
  • The Wicked Tenants
  • In Spirit and in Truth
  • The Silence of Christ
  • Priest, Prophet, and King
  • Our Life, a Journey to God
  • The Great Commandment
  • I Was Hungry and You Fed Me
  • The Love of God for Repentant Sinners

    MERCY: LIFE IN THE SEASON OF DYING

    MERCY: LIFE IN THE SEASON OF DYING
    $16.99
    In this wise and hopeful book, reminiscent of Tuesdays with Morrie, a pastor reveals lessons for living he's learned from the dying.

    What would you do with your life, if you knew it was going to end soon? Peter Roebbelen's Mercy distills the life lessons he's discovered from sitting at the bedsides of courageous people facing death's certainty. He explores the gifts that people have given him and this wisdom he has gleaned, almost as if he's been the one being counseled, rather than the other way around.

    This joyful and instructive book encourages us to live to the fullest in the present, and to love the people around us as never before.

    MERTON & WAUGH: A MONK, A CRUSTY OLD MAN, AND THE SEVEN STORY MOUNTAIN

    MERTON & WAUGH: A MONK, A CRUSTY OLD MAN, AND THE SEVEN STORY MOUNTAIN
    $22.00
    From 1948 to 1952 the lives of Trappist monk, Thomas Merton, and British novelist, Evelyn Waugh, were closely intertwined. During these years, Waugh became enthusiastic about American Catholicism, in particular, monasticism as seen through the eyes of the author of The Seven Storey Mountain. He agreed to edit Merton's autobiography and the subsequent Waters of Siloe, for publication in Britain. In this close examination of their friendship, through their correspondence, we see Waugh's coaching of a younger writer, and Waugh's brief infatuation with America. Most of all, we witness Merton the writing student and spiritual master and Waugh the master of prose and conflicted penitent. And we see how the two men diverge as the Second Vatican Council takes hold of Catholicism and the solid spiritual ground beneath them gives way.
