`Life in community,' says Jean Vanier, `is painful but it is also a marvellous adventure and a source of life.' But how do we live `in community'? How can we live in mutual love with people different from ourselves? Where do we find nourishment and growth? How do we offer ourselves for others while remaining true to ourselves? In an ever-more divided world, the wisdom and experience of Jean Vanier - founder of the global network of L'Arche communities - is of value to us all. This beautiful little book, presenting a selection of extracts from his bestselling book Community and Growth alongside wonderful illustrations by artist Sean O'Brien, gives invaluable advice on the challenges and joys of living in community. It can be read and enjoyed by people of all backgrounds and ages, and offers guidance for all forms of communities, whether they be places of living, working, worship, support or friendship.
"I invite you to hear God's voice resounding in your heart through the breath of the Holy Spirit" says Pope Francis. In preparing for the 2018 Synod "Young People, Faith, and Vocational Discernment," Pope Francis wrote to the youth of the world, "I wanted you to be the center of attention, because you are in my heart." Collected in this little book of inspiration are words from Pope Francis's heart, words he has addressed to young people around the world during his first five years as Pope. Designed for individual contemplation or to share with a ministry or group, You Are in My Heart is the perfect companion for anyone seeking to find a place for God in their lives.
Part biography and part spiritual reading, this book brings to light little-known stories from Mother Teresa's life that will help you to grow in your love of God. You will learn her approach to reading Scripture, what enabled her to persevere through agonizing nights, and the remarkable -- some would say mystical -- events that led her to start the Missionaries of Charity.In considering Mother Teresa, her private visions, and her secret sufferings, David Scott has discovered scores of early episodes and chance encounters that point to later, larger meanings. These remarkable patterns, he suggests, show that Mother Teresa's life was choreographed from above, as if a divine script had been written for her from before her birth.In these pages, you will meet for the first time the Mother Teresa who challenged the ancient Goddess of Death and became the first saint of our global village. You will read as she describes, in long-secret letters, the dark night of her soul. The woman you will meet is one that God himself sent to you as a clear sign that despite pain and suffering in our lives and in our world, God's good love will prevail ...beginning in what she called the slums of our hearts. We are all called to holiness, and the saints are sent to us as real-life examples of God's love. With Mother Teresa as your guide, you'll learn how to follow God's call and find holiness in a world marked by the shadow of death and growing indifference to God. Indeed, you'll learn how to be an everyday missionary of Christ's love in the ordinary activities of your daily life.
This best selling series is characterized by page after page of original four-color illustrations and clear typographical layout combined with teaching in simple reverent language.
Between 1728 and 1744 the Catholic lawyer Mannock Strickland (1673-1744) acted as agent for English nuns living on the Continent, including St Monica's, Louvain, the Brussels Dominicans and the Dunkirk Benedictines. Most convent archives perished at the French Revolution, but Strickland's papers survived in the archives of Mapledurham House, Oxfordshire, offering a unique insight into the workings of English convents. These extraordinary documents reveal the reality of exile for a group of formidable yet vulnerable women, "doubly dead" to English law. Two hundred letters tell stories of hardship, isolation, severe winters, war, starvation, Jacobite intrigue and international finance. They show that convent bursars became skilled at playing international exchange markets yet remained at the mercy of unscrupulous investors. The letters are presented here with full notes; a thorough introduction sets the letters, cash day books, bills of exchange and other documents in context. Richard G. Williams is Librarian and Archivist of Mapledurham House; he has also held senior posts at the University of Warwick, Imperial College London, Birkbeck College London and at Yale University.
A renowned teacher and writer on prayer and the spiritual life presents a simple, profound and practical book on the most important of all human activities: communion with God.
