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 spirituality 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.
This is a book about faith, and about the need to search for faith with integrity - an integrity which requires a ruthless honesty and seeks to leave no place for compartmentalizing the self.
In this search, Bishop Clarke reconnoitres the territory in which God of the Christian vision may 'in truth' be encountered and proclaimed today.
This book is a modern manual for sharing a relevant, vibrant, enduring faith.
Thomas Groome, a world-renowned authority in religious education, has created a contemporary, holistic approach to teaching Christian beliefs and values that offers real, effective solutions for today's parents and teachers.
"Groome has a unique ability to make the complicated seem simple; the abstract seem concrete, and the difficult seem easy." - James Martin, SJ,
"Groome offers a remarkably balanced and hopeful account of the lifelong process of handing on the Faith in parishes, intentional Christian communities, schools and Christian households. He is one of the American Catholic church's greatest treasures.' - Richard R. Gallardetz, McCarthy Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology, Boston College
"This man welcomes sinners and eats with them"
'Any book that takes us back to the practice of Jesus is to be welcomed. Do This In Memory Of Me focuses on the role that meals played in the ministry of Jesus. He scandalised the pious by welcoming sinners and eating with them. It is the same Jesus that we encounter in the Eucharist. Therefore, the Eucharist must be a place where sinners experience acceptance, healing and forgiveness. When Jesus says, "Do this in memory of me", he is saying that we, too, must welcome sinners and eat with them. Therein lies a great challenge. Simson deserves our gratitude for spelling it out so clearly.' - Flor McCarthy SDB, author of New Sunday and Holy Day Liturgies
A Scripture teacher who knew that he was suffering a terminal illness, explores how reading the Apocalypse can be an authentic spring-time of the soul. This can be true not just for the individual believer but for the Church too.
Pierre discusses how among the many images which the New Testament writers use to describe discipleship, one of the images which speak to him the most is that the life of a disciple is a journey. Journeying is so much part of the human experience meaning that discipleship, like a journey, is in some way an adventure. But actually, a journey is so often a succession of thrusts forward and of setbacks.
