A SacredLookA Sacred Look: Becoming Cultural Mystics – Theology of Popular Culture

Nancy Usselmann, FSP

How should a follower of Christ engage the popular media culture? By becoming a mystic! Sr. Nancy challenges Christians today to delve deep into the rich theological tradition of the church as the root and foundation for recognizing the beauty of God present in all that is truly human. The artists of popular culture sometimes unwittingly seek transcendence while grappling with some of humanity’s most profound existential longings.

The cultural mystics of today point out those needs of humanity in the culture’s artefacts in order to enter into dialogue with those who seek something beyond what this world satisfies. The anthropological-sacramental-incarnational paradigm presented gives us this ability to take a sacred look of the culture and offers Christ who is the answer of all humanity’s yearnings!

RemainInMeRemain in Me: Holy Orders, Prayer, and Sacraments

In such conversations, the “natural” union between priests and deacons becomes clearer and carries the potential to ignite a brotherhood of creative pastoral thinking, better serving the mission of the parish.

PastoralCareAndCounselingPastoral Care and Counselling An Introduction

Philip Browning Helsel

Addresses the critique that pastoral care is indistinguishable from secular psychotherapy by placing a person's relationship to God at the centre of pastoral care. Each person is created in the Image of God (dignity) and has a purpose

(vocation), but people face social problems such as poverty or discrimination that limit this expression. This book shows how ministers can care for systems, arenas such as health care, education, and employment. Even traumatic events such as abuse and suicide are linked with social factors like unemployment, so understanding the impact of systems on pastoral care is an essential part of ministry in the twenty-first century. This book combines theological reflection, psychological insights, and social science researches.

Based on the nature of values, many of the activities can extend beyond the classroom too.

Each and every value has a deep connection to peace. Getting in touch with the peace within is something that never loses relevance for humanity.

LovePrevailsLove Prevails

Jan Bosco Rutagengwa

Twenty-five years ago in 1994, a savage campaign of genocide was unleashed against the Tutsis of Rwanda. In the space of a hundred days, a million people were left dead. This personal narrative tells the story of two survivors—Jean Bosco and his fiancée Christine. While most of their family members perished, they found refuge in the “Hotel Rwanda.” Their story of survival is at once a love story and a harrowing inside look at what happens when a country is overrun by evil. But it is also a story of faith—an effort to find God in the midst of horror—and of the struggle to find meaning, healing, and reconciliation.
