From beloved spiritual writer and Catholic leader Gregory Floyd comes a moving meditation on the power of memory and how God is often more clearly seen when we look back. This is a book about memory, about what stays in the mind, and why. It is a book about the presence of God in our lives and the sights, sounds, words, and experiences that become unforgettable. Beginning with a single word he heard in the middle of the night-one that changed his life-this powerful memoir by Gregory Floyd asks the question: without memory, who are we? It is a meditation on beauty, marriage, family, and prayer, asking of the memories that each implants: what do they reveal? Where do they lead? -and witnessing to their potential to draw us to God.

St. Martin de Porres - "Little Stories" and the Semiotics of Culture (Paperback): Alejandro R. Garcia-Rivera St. Martin de Porres - "Little Stories" and the Semiotics of Culture (Paperback)
Alejandro R. Garcia-Rivera
R513 Discovery Miles 5 130 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The little stories and the traditions that grew up around Saint Martin de Porres of Peru are fascinating and every bit as charming as the stories told of Saint Francis of Assisi. But as Garcia-Rivera shows, these deceptively simple stories reveal much more. For the first time Garcia-Rivera unpacks these stories, using the semiotic method and insights garnered from the works of Robert Schreiter, Eugene Genovese, and Antonio Gramsci.To build this method of theological reflection Garcia-Rivera addresses such questions as: does an authentic Latin American theology exist? If it exists, where and how can it be expounded? What does Saint Martin de Porres beatification process tell us? How do the little stories reflect and extend the great theological debate of Valladolid in 1550, with BartolomA de las Casas and Juan Gines de Sepulveda arguing whether the Indians were even human beings? Using the semiotics of culture to delve into these stories, the author provides rich and astonishing insights into the power of the little story, told and retold over time by ordinary folk, that make possible the Big Story of universal principles of human reality.

Arguably the most respected Catholic systematic theologian in the English-speaking world, David Tracy's growing influence internationally and on persons of other Christian traditions and his ability to communicate with representatives of the secular academy stem from the unique quality of his voice. Still, Tracy's views on Catholicism, the mission of the church, and how plurality of worldviews and hermeneutics affect the church mission are largely unknown. Containing both new material and articles written over the past decade for Concilium, the international journal of progressive Catholic theology, these essays reveal dimensions of Tracy's thought on these topics foreshadowed in his books and philosophical theological reflections. In addition, On Naming the Present shows the best of the spirit of Concilium and its project of fostering a critical and prophetic yet world-welcoming Christian future rooted in a troubled present.

A Brief Catechism for Adults is a little masterpiece designed for convert instructions. It was actually compiled from the notes of many Catholic priests who originally used the instructions from the first edition of the book with tens of thousands of converts. Thus, it represents the fruit of many minds. For years, it was practically the standard catechism in the U.S. and Canada for instructing people in the Catholic faith. Packed with facts and written in short, clear question-and-answer format, accompanied by brief Scripture quotes, the book is concise and to the point and shows exactly what one must believe and do in order to be saved. Using ordinary language to explain theological truths, it stresses what is required to form a correct Catholic conscience. This book gives special emphasis to marriage-since most people either save or lose their souls as married persons-showing the duties people have as spouses and parents. It includes also a list of common mortal sins, the interior design of a Catholic church, how to pray the Rosary, popular saints' names for Baptism and Confirmation, familiar Catholic prayers, and practical points on common questions that arise in an unbelieving world. A Brief Catechism for Adults is an incredible one-volume handbook on how to be a good Catholic that is at once perfect for inquirers, but also excellent for adult cradle Catholics. All Catholics need to know what is in this little book; whereas unfortunately, likely ninety-nine percent today do not For simplicity, readability, interest and completion, there is no book of its kind that comes close to A Brief Catechism for Adults.

R557 R474 Discovery Miles 4 740 Save R83 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The raising of the dead is a miracle which, astonishing as it is, has been performed hundreds of times since the days of Christ. Our Lord told His Apostles to raise the dead (Matt. 10:8), and over the Christian centuries many Saints have done so-particularly great missionaries like St. Francis Xavier, St. Patrick, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Hyacinth, and St. Louis Bertrand, but also a multitude of other Saints, including St. John Bosco, St. Philip Neri, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Francis of Paola, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Malachy, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, St. Joan of Arc, St. Rose of Lima, and Blessed Margaret of Castello. The stories of these resurrection miracles are amazing; they include the raising of persons who had drowned, of persons with mutilated bodies, of persons who had been hanged, and of those whose bodies had already suffered decay, been reduced to skeletons, or been buried for several years. They include young children, unbaptized infants, persons executed for crimes, person raised to testify in criminal cases or to testify to some religious truth, and of persons who would have been condemned to Hell had they not been called back to earth for another chance. Also included herein are the descriptions of Heaven, Hell and Purgatory given by temporarily dead persons (Continued on inside back cover) who had been privileged to see those regions. Moreover, this book gives an analysis of the authenticity of resurrection miracles (Did they really happen? Were the dead persons really dead?) and of the purpose and meaning of miracles, according to the teaching of the Church-plus it describes other bodily wonders of the Catholic Saints, such as levitation, bilocation, total abstinence from natural food and drink, crossing of rivers on a cloak, and miraculous survival in intense heat. Also included are proofs for the Resurrection of Our Lord, the Catholic doctrine on the resurrection of the body and the Last Judgment (with its final separation of the damned from the elect), and a critique of contemporary "post clinical-death" experiences in the light of Catholic teaching. This is a book unique in the English-speaking world, for even in Catholic circles these accounts of resurrection miracles have for the most part remained buried in old books, rare and hard to find today. Father Hebert has indeed performed a great service to the Church in unearthing these facts and bringing them to light. Packed with fascinating true stories and solid Catholic doctrine, Saints Who Raised the Dead is a goldmine of information and of inspiration-showing forth the glory of God and His holy Church, and providing a preview of those momentous events which everyone who has ever lived will take part in at the End of the World. "Why should it be thought a thing incredible, that God should raise the dead?"-Acts 26:8

In November 1989, six members of the Jesuit community of the University of Central America in San Salvador, including the rector, Ignacio Ellacuria, were massacred by government troops. Twenty-five years later, this book provides the definitive account of the path led to that fateful day, focusing on the Jesuits' prophetic option for the poor, their role in the renewal of Salvadoran church and society, and the critical steps that caused them, as Archbishop Romero would put it, to "share the same fate as the poor." Drawing on newly available archival materials and extensive interviews, Robert Lassalle-Klein gives special attention to the theological contributions of Ellacuria and Jon Sobrino, who survived the massacre, and the emergence among the Jesuit community of a spirituality that recognized the risen Christ in what Ellacuria called "the crucified people of El Salvador." This insight led, in turn, to the development of the most important advance in the idea of a Christian university since the time of Cardinal Newman. Blood and Ink tells a vital story of a religious and university community's conversion and renewal that speaks to the ongoing challenge of discipleship today.

An international team of scholars address the theology and practice of peacebuilding.

"Peacebuilding" refers to a range of topics, ranging from conflict prevention to post-conflict reconciliation. In this volume a strong cast of Catholic theologians, ethicists, and scholar-practitioners join to examine the challenge of peacebuilding in theory and practice. While many of the essays deal with general themes of reconciliation, forgiveness, interreligious dialogue, and human rights, there are also case studies of peacebuilding in such diverse contexts as Colombia, the Philippines, the Great Lakes region of Africa, Indonesia, and South Africa. This volume will be of interest to all scholars engaged in developing a theology and ethic of just peace, as well as students seeking to understand the interaction between theology, ethics, and lived Christianity.

Contributors include: John Paul Lederach; Maryann Cusimano Love; Daniel Philpott; William Headley and Reina Neufeldt; Todd Whitmore; Peter-John Pearson; Thomas Michel; Kenneth Himes; Lisa Sowle Cahill; Peter Phan; and David O'Brien.

Looking back on a happy lifetime spent as a Catholic priest, Kenneth Payne presents an inspired biographical work that discusses a fundamentally important element of human life; namely hospitality and how it has been, and continues to be, a central component of his life, work and faith. This continues as a central theme in the presentation of his travelogue, which describes, not without humour, his work with many different groups of people. Especially moving are the descriptions of his work amongst the most poverty stricken people in Jamaica, and his visit to the deprived peoples in Brazil where the open door and welcoming arms are the agents through which Christ's teachings are practised in today's world. At a time when criticism is often levelled at the institutionalised churches, this book comes as a breath of fresh air and is of interest to many who may not share the author's faith.
