The Way of the Cross offers reflections on the fourteen traditional stopping-places or stations which mark out a path by which Christians may walk in the footsteps of Jesus, identifying themselves spiritually with him.
Included in part two is a resource for more leisurely reflection on each station providing scriptural texts, and it brings us into the company of saints and mystics who have travelled this path before us.
Born at the dawn of the nineteenth century, Dominican Margaret Mary Hallahan enriched Catholic Church in England in the fields of education of the young and care of the infirm, in the years following Catholic Emancipation. These pages provide evidence of Margaret's staunch faith as well as pointing to the energetic drive she brought to different ministries.
Revised - Including New Material
This book offers 26 funeral services, each on a specific theme – half of them written to refer to the phase of life at which a person died. The book also includes four Remembrance Liturgies, as well as four Rites of Committal, 12 Prayer Services, and 16 Reflections, many of which did not appear in the earlier work.
The lives of Peter Higgins (died 1642) and Terence Albert O’Brien (died 1651), beatified in 1992. In their prefaces, Bishop Laurence Ryan and Archbishop Dermot Clifford point to continuing local devotion to the two Blesseds in Kildare and Tipperary. And Bishop Walton Empey testifies to the ecumenical significance of Peter Higgins’ life.
These essays portray the recovery of religious life within the Anglican tradition as a gift from God and also recognise that religious communities have entered a time of searching and revision.
Sing a New Song was Timothy Radcliffe’s first book and not surprisingly sold out a number of times.
In this collection we taste the easy eloquence of a great writer and teacher. Radcliffe can mix an image of Jurassic Park with the symbolism of the Last Supper; he succeeds in outlining how human communities may be rebuilt on the foundation of truth, despite inevitable conflicts. These pages outline an exciting project for all who seek spiritual wellbeing, at individual and community levels.

The Certainty of Being Loved traces the spiritual journey of Pierre Claverie op, born in 1938 in Algiers, the fourth generation of a family of European settlers.
Pierre joined the Dominicans in France and his conversion experience enabled him to cross the boundaries of difference and deepen his Christian commitment. It would eventually lead him to offer his life as a ransom for peace and reconciliation between Christians and Muslims.
"The Algerian martyr Blessed Pierre Claverie is one of the great witnesses of our time, deserving of a place next to Oscar Romero or Dietrich Bonhoeffer, yet is little known so far in the wider Church." - Austin Ivereigh
