LENT WITH SAINT TERESA OF CALCUTTA

$12.99

"Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity," observed Mother Teresa, one of the most beloved Catholic women of all time, popularly acclaimed a saint in her own lifetime. This small book of daily reflections for Lent and Holy Week celebrates the humility, charity and devotion of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, canonized on September 4, 2016, and the Missionaries of Charity--including the four sisters martyred in Yemen in March, 2016.
The penitential season of Lent is the prelude to Easter, the most resplendent season of the liturgical calendar. On Ash Wednesday, we receive the incinerated ashes of the palms that marked the start of the previous year's Holy Week. In so doing, we are mindful of the perpetual cycle of dying and rising, darkness and light, sin and redemption. On Easter Sunday, we rejoice in the new life to which we have been raised and transformed.
With her canonization on September 4, 2016, the writings of Saint Teresa of Calcutta are especially appropriate as we ponder these eternal mysteries--and how we are to live them out in our own lives.
Our daily offerings of work and prayer, the intentional giving of ourselves, delights the One who loves us. Each sacrifice, however great or small, presents an opportunity to die to ourselves so that the love of Christ might shine more brightly in us. Our witness--like that of St. Teresa and her sisters--can be a transforming force in the world. And that change begins within.
Lent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta offers a short Scripture passage for each day, a brief meditation with a quote or story from the life of this remarkable woman, plus reflection questions and a short prayer to begin or end the day. Read alone or with a small group, this is a helpful resource for reflecting upon the mercy of God--and modeling the generous heart of this saint from Calcutta in our own lives.

SEVEN LAST WORDS AN INVITATION TO A DEEPER FRIENDSHIP WITH JESUS

$18.99

Based on his talks at New York's St. Patrick's Cathedral on Good Friday 2015, the New York Times bestselling author and editor at large of America magazine offers a portrait of Jesus, using his last words on the cross to reveal how deeply he understood our predicaments, what it means to be fully human, and why we can turn to Christ completely, in mind, heart, and soul.

Each meditation is dedicated to one of the seven sayings:

"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."

"Today you will be with me in Paradise."

"Woman, this is your son" . . . "This is your mother."


"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"


"I thirst."


"It is finished."


"Father, into your hands I commend my spirit."

With the warmth, wisdom, and grace that infuse his works, Father James Martin explains why Jesus's crucifixion and death on the cross is an important teaching moment in the Gospels. Jesus's final statements, words that are deeply cherished by his followers, exemplify the depth of his suffering but also provide a key to his empathy and why we can connect with him so deeply.

STATION TO STATION AN IGNATIAN JOURNEY THROUGH THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS

$9.95

An imaginative way to pray the Stations of the Cross every day of the year.


"As Jansen walks with us from station to station, he points us from pain toward love and hope, toward strength and endurance, toward transformation." --Jessica Mesman Griffith, from the introduction

Throughout the centuries, Christians have asked, "Why is there suffering?" or, on a more personal level, "Why am I suffering?" Answers abound, but none are likely to suffice or satisfy. A far more helpful question might be, "How should I respond to suffering?" And the answer to that question, believes Gary Jansen, can be found by looking closely at the Passion of Jesus.
In Station to Station, Jansen uses the scriptural Way of the Cross to focus our minds and hearts on Jesus' anguish and death. Walking through each station, we see the unique ways in which Jesus responded to suffering, and we are challenged to react similarly in our own struggles. Furthermore, through various Ignatian exercises, Jansen encourages us to imaginatively pray our way through the stations and to gradually respond more as Jesus would when we are weighed down by life's burdens.
Whether you are bearing your own cross or helping someone else carry theirs, Station to Station will show you how Christ's character in the midst of suffering can, with time and prayer, become your character too.
