REFLECTIONS ON THE SUNDAY READINGS BY CHRISTOPHER WEST

Word Made Flesh

One of the most influential movements in the Church today is centered on St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body (TOB), of whose teachings Christopher West is the preeminent translator for a popular audience. In Word Made Flesh: A Companion to the Sunday Readings (Cycle C), West offers reflections on an entire cycle of Sunday Mass readings through the lens of TOB, providing a fresh way to process and act on the Good News by orienting our desires for union with God with our understanding of ourselves and our relationships with others

Don't Forget to Say Thank You

WHAT IF GOD WANTS YOU TO LEARN THESE LESSONS TOO?

Don't Forget to Say Thank You

Do you hear yourself saying the same things over and over to your kids?
“Do you need help?”
“Say thank you.”
“Wait a minute.”

In Don’t Forget to Say Thank You: And Other Parenting Lessons That Brought Me Closer to God, Lindsay Schlegel reimagines the common phrases we repeat as parents and applies them to our relationship with God. In doing so, she demonstrates how reflecting on our vocation as mothers can inform and illuminate our role as a daughter of God, drawing us closer to him.

Christ in the Classroom

LESSON PLANNING THAT LEADS STUDENTS TO ENCOUNTER CHRIST

If the goal of catechesis is to cultivate an encounter with Christ, why do religious educators spend so much time focused almost exclusively on ideas and not experiences? The reason is that many have never been shown a method that inspires the heart while also instructing the mind. Jared Dees, creator of the popular website The Religion Teacher, shows how applying the steps of lectio divina to teaching can reorient religious education toward encountering the person of Christ rather than merely sharing information about him

The Soul’s Slow Ripening

12 CELTIC PRACTICES FOR SEEKING THE SACRED

The Soul’s Slow Ripening

Everyone wants to understand God’s will for their lives. Christine Valters Paintner shares one of the most ancient paths to understanding from her study of monasticism and immersion into Celtic spirituality while living in Ireland. The Celtic way, which Paintner distills into twelve practices, offers discernment that focuses on the environment rather than the intellectual focus present in other forms of discernment. It allows for what Paintner calls the “soul’s slow ripening,” coming into the fullness of our own sweetness before we pluck the fruit.

All In

In this passionate and unapologetic account of why her faith in Christ and the Catholic Church are the source of meaning and joy in her life, Pat Gohn—popular speaker, retreat leader, catechist, and author —invites you to become more confident in the power of the Catholic faith to transform your life as well. Gohn’s confidence in her faith emerged despite and even out of a struggle with disillusionment.

Yet she never left the Church and relates how she found a way to dig deeper and discover reasons to stay faithful.
