ABBAS CHILD

$19.98

Is an imposter robbing you of God's love? Many Christians have bought into the lie that we are worthy of God's love only when our lives are going well. If our families are happy or our jobs are meaningful, life is a success. But when life begins to fall through the cracks and embarrassing sins threaten to reveal our less-than-perfect identity, we scramble to keep up a good front to present to the world- and God. We cower and hide until we can rearrange the mask of perfection and look good again. Sadly, it is then that we wonder why we lack intimate relationships and a passionate faith. Yes all this time God is calling us to take the mask off and come openly to Him. God longs for us to know in the depth of our being that He loves us and accepts us as we are. When we are true selves, we can finally claim our identity as God's child-Abba's child-and experience His pleasure in who we are. Brennan Manning encourages readers to let go of the imposter lifestyle and freely accept our belovedness as a child of the heavenly Father. In Him there is life, our passion is rekindled, and our union with Him is His greatest pleasure.

ADAM GODS BELOVED

$24.95

Henri Nouwen found a remarkable spiritual guide in a severely disabled young man named Adam.
Excerpts from "Adam: God's Beloved"
"In our society plagued by fear, anxiety, loneliness, depression and a sense of being lost, we keep looking for guides. We so much hope that someonea guru, spiritual director or soul friendcan help us make sense out of our confusion and can show us a way to inner wholeness, freedom and peace."
"I recognized that Adam's way, the way of radical vulnerability, was also the way of Jesus."
"Adam clearly challenged us [the L'Arche Daybreak community] to trust that compassion, not competition, is the way to fulfill our human vocation. This challenge forced us to reexamine all the basic assumptions of our individual and action-oriented lives."
"I am a witness to Adam's truth. I know that I couldn't have told Adam's story if I hadn't first known Jesus' story. Jesus' story gave me eyes to see and ears to hear the story of Adam's life and death." "

ADAMS RETURN AUDIO CD

$41.95

Boys become men in much the same way across cultures, by integrating, through experience, each of these five messages:
1. Life is hard.
2. You are not that important.
3. Your life is not about you.
4. You are not in control.
5. You are going to die.

Our culture has done everything in its power, it seems, to move away from this ancient wisdom. Men are lured away to dominate through money, sex, power, consumerism and never really become "men." In this audiobook, spiritual master Richard Rohr reintroduces us to male wisdom in a way that will engage anyone who is a man, who is mentoring a young man, or who wants to understand men better, in a language being used in retreats around the globe."

ANAM CARA:WISDOM FROM THE CELT

$69.95

When Saint Patrick first came to Ireland in the 5th century AD, he encountered the Celtic people with their flourishing spiritual tradition, already thousands of years old. Where the Christians worshiped one God, the Celts had many and in fact, found divinity all around them: in rivers and hills, the sea and sky, and in every kind of animal.

The Celtic reverence for the spirit in all things, and their celebration of the continuous mysteries of everyday existence, survive to this day a vibrant spiritual legacy unique in the Western world. On "Anam Cara," Irish poet and scholar John O'Donohue blends philosophy, instruction, and spiritual insight, taking you inside this remarkable spiritual synthesis.

O'Donohue shares secrets from a world where the Fates are not feared, and where God's passionate side is celebrated. These secrets will help you to reconnect with the world around you and the treasures hidden within your soul.

In the oral tradition so beloved of the Celts, O'Donohue shares an intuitive approach to spirituality that takes you beyond spiritual "programs" to a place where your heart can be truly nourished and healed. You will learn authentic Irish prayers and blessings; how to discover your individual nature; awakening the senses as "thresholds of the spirit"; understanding the "secret divinity" in your relationships; how the Irish "hospitality" toward death can help you become more compassionate, generous, and fearless; and much more.

Tracing the cycles of life and nature, this insightful session draws from the holy waters of Ireland's spiritual heritage from the Celts and their Druid shamans, the "imbas" (inspirational sagas) of the wandering bards, and the sacred fountainhead of the Christian monasteries. Join John O'Donohue for a journey to the "island of saints and scholars" where you will discover your own "Anam Cara" "soul friend."

Course objectives: List some central beliefs of Celtic wisdomCompile a list of poems that offer hope and inspirationRecite myths and legends from Celtic historyDiscuss new perspectives on life, work and death"

ART OF LETTING GO

product image
$69.95

Course objectives:

  • Discuss the life of St. Francis of Assisi.
  • Identify the difference between the true self and the false self.
  • Explain the non-dual aspects of Jesus's teaching.
  • Practice contemplative prayer.
  • We often think of saints as rare individuals whose gifts far exceed our own, and the beloved St. Francis is no exception. But for Fr. Richard Rohr, a prolific author and renowned speaker, the life and teachings of this beloved figure offer an authentic spirituality we can all embody.

    On The Art of Letting Go, Fr. Rohr gives us a six-session learning course that explores: the surprising richness we discover through simplifying our lives (without taking a vow of poverty); liberation from our self-limiting biases and certitudes; contemplation and action, two key steps toward communing more deeply with the Divine; and more.

    ASCENT OF MOUNT CARMEL

    AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ST. THERESE OF LISIEUX

    $33.95

    The greatest spiritual best-seller of our time!
    St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, was only 24 years old when she died in 1897. Yet her writings continue to have a tremendous impact throughout the world, making her one of the most popular of all spiritual writers.
    Sharing memories from early childhood through her life as a Carmelite nun, Therese opens her heart to us. This bride of Christ reveals her passion and longing for union with God. Her simplicity is charming, and we begin to believe that we can travel the path to salvation that she points out to us.
    Therese called her doctrine "the little way of spiritual childhood," and it is based on her complete and unshakeable confidence in God's love for us. As she said herself of the writings that became this book, "What I have written will do a lot of good. It will make the kindness of God better known.""

    BEGINNING TO PRAY CD

    $19.95

    Anthony Bloom on
    The Absence of God
    The fact that God can make Himself present or can leave us with the sense of His absence is part of this live and real relationship.
    Knocking at the Door
    We must stand before God without trying to give Him a shape or to imprison Him in concepts and images, and we must knock at a door.
    Going Inward
    If you are inattentive to the words you pronounce, if your heart does not respond to them, or if your life is not turned in the same direction as your prayer, it will not reach out Godwards.
    Managing Time
    I think we must do exercises in stopping time and in standing in the present, in this now which is my present and which is also the intersection of eternity with time.
    Addressing God
    There will come a moment when the door will open, but then you must have a name for God. You must be able to say a word that shows that it is you who have been in search of Him

    BETWEEN THE DARK AND THE DAYLIGHT EMBRACING THE CONTRADICTIONS OF LIFE

    $29.99

    "Between the Dark and the Daylight" explores the concerns of modern life, of the overworked mind and hurting heart. These are the paradoxical and often frustrating moments when our lives feel at odds with everything around us. Only by embracing the contradictions, Chittister contends, may we live well amid stress, withstand emotional storms, and satisfy our yearnings for something transcendent and real. By delving into the chaos, this book guides us through the questions that seemed easier to avoid and enlightens what has been out of focus. With simple and poignant meditations, "Between the Dark and the Daylight" reveals how we can better understand ourselves, one another, and God.

    BEYOND THE MIRROR AUDIO CD

    product image
    $16.95

    Give yourself a gift. Listen to renowned spiritual guide Henri Nouwen reflect on the struggles in facing death, particularly when it comes knocking unexpectedly.
    After his recovery from an accident in which his spleen was ruptured, Nouwen realizes he's very much alive, but to what purpose? In this search for meaning, his main questions become: "Why am I alive? Why wasn't I found ready to enter the house of God? Why was I returned to a place where love is so ambiguous, where peace is so hard to experience and joy so deeply hidden in sorrow?"
    In this book, Nouwen examines his accident, his call in life and his attitudes toward others. His perspective on death changes as he realizes the doors to eternity are a part of living each day in the expectation of a new birth. Nouwen shares that the most difficult aspect of surviving his close brush with death is the blend of his continued yearning for the God of love, which comes with a need to share that love with others, and the gnawing sense of being unfulfilled. Nothing erases that anguish but to surrender in life as the beloved child of God.

In "Breathing Under Water," Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from any addiction from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction we all have to sin."

    CALLING CATHOLICS TO BE BIBLE

    $19.95

    In this dynamic series, renowned theologian Dr. Scott Hahn reminds Catholics that they have a special connection to Sacred Scripture. It is the Catholic Church which has preserved and protected the Bible since the very dawn of Christianity. Accordingly, Dr. Hahn challenges Catholics to discover the roots of their faith by studying the Scripture; deepen their faith by taking what they learn to heart and praying with Scripture; preparing to defend their faith from Scripture while recognizing that Scripture is, in fact, the first defense of the Catholic Faith. There is no conflict between being Catholic and being evangelical, Dr. Hahn points out. In fact, he insists, given the Church's role as guardian of the Gospel, it would be impossible to be truly Catholic and NOT evangelical!

    Being a faithful Catholic family doesn t have to be dull, boring, or cheesy.
    These days, getting kids to focus on God instead of their iPods takes nothing less than supernatural intervention. Loving God and following him often makes you look weird to your neighbors.The Willitses understand the struggle, and in their very first book, they share their energetic, humorous, and imperfect attempts to live out their faith in today's world. Sometimes it helps to know that others are on the same narrow path as you, stumbling just as you do. Greg and Jennifer Willitses' view of the world covers the gamut of daily life, from kids and comic books to marriage and dealing with technology, and shows readers that you don t have to be perfect parents with perfect kids to be good Catholics."
