Reflecting on what transpires between Scripture verses, we see their initial tension become the catalyst that drives both Mary and Martha to the feet of Jesus — the perfect place to discover peace.

OnLoveOn Love: Selected Writings

Joseph Ratzinger

The Pope Emeritus is starting to speak again, and has decided to make available this collection of his homilies, most previously unpublished, in which he addresses the theme, which from the beginning he has celebrated, pondered, and witnessed to more than any other: Love. He beautifully states: Christianity is a journey; it is not a theory, a sum total of doctrine; Christianity is life, it is a vital impetus that carries us toward true life . . . Christianity is therefore the inversion of the normal direction of our existence. Human life, according to its natural tendency, is a journey toward death. But then, what is life? When can someone say: I have found life? Where do we find it? Love is life. Love is synthesis; death is dissolution. Someone who has found love can say: I have found life.

Eve Tushnet

PriestAndBeggarPriest and Beggar: The Heroic Life of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz

Kevin Wells

Tells the story of a different kind of American hero, an ordinary priest who stared down corruption, slander, persecution, and death for the sake of God's poor. "What Father Al managed to do is beyond the pale", said his longtime collaborator Monsignor James Golasinski. "He was the boldest man I ever knew. He feared nothing." Known for his joy and his humor, Schwartz was declared a Servant of God by Pope Francis in 2015. By the time of his death in 1992, his work with the Sisters of Mary had spread to the Philippines and Mexico; and since then, the Sisters have founded Boys towns and Girls towns across Central and South America, as well as in Tanzania. Father Schwartz died calling out to his beloved Mary, the Virgin of the Poor, saying, "All praise, honour, and glory for anything good accomplished in my life goes to her and to her alone."

FaithfulFriendshipFaithful Friendships: Embracing Diversity in Christian Community

Dana L. Robert

In a world of busy and isolated lives, in which friendships can too easily become shallow, Dana Robert insists that good friendships are a vital and transformative part of the Christian life—a mustard seed of the kingdom of God. She believes Christians have the responsibility to be countercultural by making friends across cultural, racial, socioeconomic, and religious lines that separate people from each other. Robert tells the stories of Christians who, despite or even because of difficult circumstances, experienced friendship with people unlike themselves as "God with us," as exile, as testimony, and as celebration. Jesus was a friend to his disciples. Through Jesus’s life and the lives of his followers down through the ages, Faithful Friendships shows readers how friendship can become life-changing—and even world changing.
