A Hundred Roads to Here
€12.00 EUR

A Hundred Roads to Here is a book for struggling meditators.

The wish to meditate may be strong and persistent, but there are many impediments. Every meditator knows them. They present themselves in random ways, and this book is for dipping into at random. Though they are numbered, the sections are in no particular order. They are not points to ponder during meditation, because meditation is inner silence. They were written in response to requests from individuals and groups for brief inputs at the beginning of their meditation sessions; they are not meant to lead to further reflection, but to silence, and to the meditative state which is never more than a breath away.

A Holy Mess - Making the Most of our Misfortunes
€14.99 EUR

‘Cleanliness is next to… impossible,’ said the little boy, struggling to remember the maxim. We learn to live with mess, because life is mostly messy, but we need to do so as thoughtfully as we can, with hope and with good grace.

In this book the author tries to gather for the modern reader some of the hard-earned wisdom of Christian writers, and others, who knew tragedy and chaos in their own time, and who can therefore credibly persuade us to go on.

Saint Dominic and the Order of Preachers
€6.35 EUR

Some saints attract veneration even during their lifetime, others are more self-effacing: it is as if they hide behind the works they leave behind them and the ideals which they prompted others to follow.

Saint Dominic was one such saint: when he dies in 1221, the order which he established, the Order of Preachers, commonly known as the Dominicans, buried him, sadly and affectionately, and then got on with the job he had given them.
