The Universal Christ:  How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope for, and Believe

Richard Rohr

A long-awaited book exploring what it means that Jesus was called “Christ,” and how this forgotten truth can restore hope and meaning to our lives. Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. “God loves things by becoming them,” he writes, and Jesus’s life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God—except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us, and in everyone we meet.

Surrounded by Love: Seven Teachings of St. Francis

Murray Bodo, OFM

Fr. Murray brings to life seven teachings from the life and writings of St. Francis of Assisi. They are both a way and a destination, the way being transformation and the destination being the love of God. St Francis invites us to go on a journey from love through love into love. The seven teachings define spirituality for our own time that anyone can learn to practice in his or her own life, anyone who has an attitude of reverence for others and for the earth and all of nature, and who acknowledges the existence of a higher power that is beyond what one can perceive with the senses.

RejoiceAndBeGladRejoice and Be Glad - Study Edition

Pope Francis

In this papal exhortation, released on April 9, 2018, and entitled Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad), Pope Francis looks at the call to holiness, which is something to which we all can aspire. No matter who we are, it is in the very act of living—with humility, kindness, and mercy—that we can become holy. Holiness is in everyday life, with its risks, challenges, and opportunities, but we do not have to settle for a mediocre existence. Rather, the pope challenges us to find a practical holiness. The pope’s overarching message here is this: We must cultivate seeing and acting with mercy.

Examining Paul’s message in the context of the ancient world, Ware identifies what would have struck Paul’s original audience as startling or unique.
