An Invitation to Love: A Personal Retreat on the Great Commandment
William A. Barry, SJ
Provides a practical sequence of prayer sessions on the great commandment of the Christian faith: to love God and love our neighbour. All other aspects of a healthy and hopeful life grow from our practices of love.
When we experience God’s love for us, we can respond with a growing love for God. Loving God will transform us into people who can love our neighbours, too, whoever they are.

Eternity in the Midst of Time
Fr. Wilfrid Stinissen
Father Stinnisen dares us to see time with new eyes. The insight that eternity is written in the depths of our hearts helps us to live in time in a way that leads us deeper into God's joy. We are like children in a land of fairy tales where everything is exciting and exploration never ends.
We therefore should rejoice that everything around us is great and mysterious and that we can live in eternal wonder. His aim is to show us how to see time from different perspectives and to discover how rich it is. Above all, he demonstrates how we can make use of the possibilities that time offers to us.

The Following of Jesus: A Reply to the Imitation of Christ
Without rejecting Thomas’s spiritual insights, Leonardo Boff sets out to complement The Imitation of Christ with a message that speaks to our own time. While situating the way of Jesus in the wider story of the cosmos, he connects Jesus’s radical response to the structures of his day with the contemporary challenges of discipleship.
In The Following of Jesus, Boff in effect summarizes his own lifetime of reflection on the Christian message.

The Good Sense of Jesus: A Commentary on the Beatitudes
Fr. Ivan Pertine
It is often said that living the Gospel is difficult. In reality, it is the easiest thing. It is difficult to live without God, groping aimlessly, alone. It is easier to listen to him, belong to a Christian community, walk with others . . . .
It is difficult to be alone, and it is difficult to live as a slave the pressures and expectations of the world. In contrast, life is made simpler, when we trust in the Word and give ourselves over to Christ. The teaching of Christ is designed for the human heart. And so, he whoever practices the teachings of Sermon on the Mount, with the grace of God, will enter into the pathways of “the good sense of Jesus.”

A Spring within Us: A Year of Daily Meditations
In these daily reflections, Richard Rohr invites us to rediscover the spring hidden inside each one of us. He reminds us of God’s indwelling presence and that we are inherently beloved. Remembering who we truly are is a gradual, lifelong journey: Fr Richard offers insights to ease the process and lead us back to our Source.
He explores each stage, drawing from Scripture, Christian mystics, non-dual teachers from various faiths, and wisdom from other fields such as psychology, science, the Enneagram and the Twelve Steps. He is not teaching new concepts so much as framing them in a way that resonates with our intuitive wisdom, the truth that our souls already know.
