TheStrangenessOfTruthThe Strangeness of Truth: Vibrant Faith in a Dark World

Damian Ference

The author meditates on the way that eternal mysteries such as the Incarnation, Resurrection, and the Eucharist make themselves felt in the everyday, using scenes from his own life to illustrate and animate doctrine. His insights are designed to awaken and remind his readers of the radical truths that surround them- that God holds our world in existence, that He became a man, and that He sacrificed Himself for us. Fr. Ference's writing is filled with wonder, reverence, and a keen observational sense, using concrete examples and crystal-clear observations to illuminate realities often spoken of as abstract. This book will spark a renewed love and appreciation for the doctrines God has revealed, and help you see them with fresh eyes; not as they could be, but how they really are-beautiful, strange, and timeless.

SCRIPTURE

WhatDoesTheBibleSayAboutIitWhat Does the Bible Say About Old Age?

Ronald D. Witherup

Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about growing old? This book deals directly with this timeless question that affects most human beings, especially in modern times. The Bible affirms the positive value of aging. Surprisingly, the biblical perspective goes far beyond the simple affirmation that gray hair brings wisdom. Its viewpoint is more complex, with an amazing number of biblical stories that touch the theme of old age and all that comes with it.

WaterAndSpiritWater and Spirit: Meditations on Saint John's Gospel 1:19 to 5:47

Adrienne Von Speyr

Following up her book, THE WORD: A Meditation on the Prologue of St. John's Gospel, this beautiful work by the mystic Adrienne von Speyr continues these meditations to the end of chapter five. Von Speyr reflects deeply on the text, taking it sentence by sentence, but this precise adherence to the words is developed into a much broader picture. The meditations are confluent with the scenes and themes of the Gospel itself, and perhaps the most characteristic note of her meditations is determined by the author's use of the whole imagery of St. John to convey his thought. In these meditations the imagery of St. John is everywhere seen as leading into eternal life, and that life as beginning here and now.

WhyCelibacyWhy Celibacy?: Reclaiming the Fatherhood of the Priest

Fr. Carter Griffin                

As Fr. Griffin argues in this book, the ancient practice of celibacy, when lived well, helps a priest exercise his spiritual fatherhood joyfully and fruitfully. Along the way, Griffin explores: the question of optional celibacy; some pitfalls of celibate paternity; the selection and formation of candidates for celibate priesthood; why biological fathers are also called to spiritual fatherhood; the powerful impact of celibacy on the Church and the wider culture

Fr. Griffin brings light and hope with a new perspective on the Church's perennial wisdom on celibacy.

FrancisOfAssisiFrancis of Assisi: Messenger for Today's World

Robert Waldron

The author explores Francis from three perspectives: biographical, psychological and aesthetic. His book is innovative because he understands Francis through our new science of psychology and through the beauty of Bellini's masterpiece St. Francis in the Desert, the painting shown on the cover of the book. For a psychological understanding Waldron employs Carl Jung's theory of individuation: the steps taken by Francis to become his True Self. Waldron also employs Bellini's painting to shed light on St. Francis the mystic. Waldron also addresses Francis's poem The Canticle of the Creatures, offering an exegesis of the poem that also provides insights into the saint's life.

ConciliarOctetConciliar Octet: A Concise Commentary on the Eight Key Texts of the Second Vatican Council

Fr. Aidan Nichols O.P.

In this work Dominican scholar and writer Aidan Nichols maintains that the Council texts must be interpreted in the light of their genesis, not their aftermath. They must be seen in the light of the public debates in the Council chamber, not the hopes (or fears) of individuals behind the scenes. On this basis, he provides a concise commentary on the eight most significant documents produced by the Council, documents which cover pretty comprehensively all the major aspects of the Church’s life.
