SPIRITUALITY

WalkingInLoveOfJesusWalking in Love of Scripture: Reflections, Ponderings and Prayers

Deborah McCann

Pope Francis has given the whole church a powerful gift.

The reflections and prayers in this booklet, based on thoughts from Pope Francis’ declaration, explore what the pope is hoping this day will do for us. These reflections will help us take up the pope’s invitation to let the Scriptures enrich our lives.

FindingYourTreasureFinding Your Treasure: A Monastic Journey through Lent

The Benedictine Monks of Münsterschwarzach Abbey

The way to yourself, to your own center is seldom straightforward and often full of surprises. Finding Your Treasure helps us discover something new and perhaps forgotten. For example, answers to the questions: What do I really want? What sustains me? What do I need for my life to succeed? But even rocky terrain must be crossed, dark sides appear. But one thing is certain: only those who set off can arrive. But we can travel with the certainty that God joins us with every step. In fact, he already expects us. We come to realize that we find God when we are at home with ourselves.

PaulASndTheLanguageOfFaithPaul and the Language of Faith

Nijay K. Gupta

A dynamic reading of Paul’s faith language, outlining its subtle nuances as belief, trust, and faithfulness.
Faith language permeates the letters of Paul. Yet, its exact meaning is not always clear. Many today, reflecting centuries of interpretation, consider belief in Jesus to be a passive act. In this important book, Nijay Gupta challenges common assumptions in the interpretation of Paul and calls for a re-examination of Paul’s faith language. Gupta argues that Paul’s faith language resonates with a Jewish understanding of covenant involving goodwill, trust, and expectation. Paul’s understanding of faith involves the transformation of one’s perception of God and the world through Christ, relational dependence on Christ, as well as active loyalty to Christ.

Through this process, the messages spoken by the Psalms editors emerge with words of faith about everyday issues in human living.

WhyCatholicsLeaveWhy Catholics Leave, What They Miss, and How They Might Return

Stephen Bullivant, Catherine Knowles, Hannah Vaughan-Spruce and Bernadette Durcan

A project undertaken in the UK in which Catholics who no longer regularly practice their faith share their story. Their testimonies must be seriously listened to and heard more widely. This plan embodies two hopes: first, that the Church might better discern in what ways it might serve those who are both missing and missed from our parishes.
Second, that it might better understand the means of preventing others from leaving in the first place. Some of the topics address the question of why many Catholics do not practice their faith, what respondents miss about the Church, and what the Church might do to bring them back. An epilogue makes a number of concrete pastoral recommendations regarding how Catholics might best respond to the findings.

Begins with four foundational chapters: “Can theology be made simple?”, “Why is the Bible important?”, “Is faith reasonable?”, and “Can expressions of faith change?” It then explores a series of questions like “Who made God?”, “If God is almighty, why is there so much suffering?”, and “Does God have a plan for me?”. Each chapter draws on engaging stories and examples to illustrate points, as well as summarizing relevant elements of Scripture, Church teaching, and contemporary philosophy and science. While primarily designed as a resource for teachers, the work could also be helpful in RCIA programs, faith formation programs for adults, and identity development programs for lay leaders in Catholic ministries.
