From an author with a lifetime spent teaching theology and being active in promoting liturgical education and practices. This book offers an account of the major phases of the development of the Roma Rite.
The purpose is to help readers come to a mindfulness about the Mass that takes them beyond seeing it as holy ceremonial to be regulated and that thinking rightly about it requires thinking about what God is doing in it, the kind of thinking done in this book.
"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
Shouldering the Lamb offers eleven meditations revolving around the ancient figure of the shepherd carrying a lamb across his shoulders. Viewing this image from many angles enables Archbishop Richard Clarke to reflect on how any carrying of another in the loving service of God and humankind is an echo, in some respect at least, of the God who is Love.
"‘Prepare yourself to be taken on an unexpected journey!..." + Eamon Martin, Archbishop of Armagh

Preaching Justice Volume II - Contributions of Dominican Sisters to Social Ethics in the Twentieth Century
Preface by Mary McAleese
Preaching Justice II presents some of the key ways in which Dominican sisters have promoted justice and contributed to social ethics in the twentieth century, continuing on into the twenty-first.
It is a companion volume to Preaching Justice I, published in 2007, which focused on the work for justice and the contribution to social ethics of the Dominican friars over the same time period.
The book explores tensions experienced by Joseph Ratzinger that were important in shaping his chosen theological direction, as well as tensions that arise from the relationship between academic freedom and Church authority.
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.
This collection of essays marks 150 years of study and reflection since the Dominican Priory in Tallaght was founded. There, indeed, friars, together with sisters, laity, and contemplative nuns, members of the family that is the Order of Preachers, explore the gospel that unites them in prayer and preaching.
