How to Live With a Prickly Porcupine: Letting the Difficult Person Heal Us
Galilee Centre

Each of us often rub shoulders with a porcupine, a difficult person we wish lived in Antarctica: the pessimist who believes every silver lining has a cloud, the passive aggressive (the dog who licks your hand before biting it), the depressive who depresses us, and the others that we thank God we are not married to. We will explore the two hands that heal us: the right hand that sets boundaries so we can care for ourselves and find inner peace and the left hand that reaches out to create peace without becoming another prickly porcupine that blames or tries to fix another. Even if the difficult person never changes, that person becomes a source of new life and healing for us.

Intercultural Theology
Overseas Ministries Study Center

Intercultural Theology regards visual arts, literature, film etc. as equivalent sources to theological texts. The course will give an introduction in how to interpret Christian art from Asia and Africa. It reconstructs historical developments and introduces contemporary local artists and their works. How does the Christian faith interact with the cultural-religious dimension of a particular context? We want to decipher the exchanges between at least two iconographic systems. Sometimes we will also come across an expressionism that calls for justice and liberation for the poor and oppressed and allows a glimpse of the socio-economic and political realities of the country.

If you're a priest nearing retirement age, this workshop is designed to help you: plan for the transition into retirement; make your retirement meaningful and purposeful; discover your strengths and your likely challenges, and how to best engage both; discover the 15 spiritual growth factors that can transform retirement into an energizing time of personal and spiritual development; and learn the steps to make the most of your retirement.

The Advocate
The Spirit of Truth
Fr. Andrew Apostoli, CFR

Father Andrew skillfully explains how human knowledge works, the relation between faith and reason, and how the Holy Spirit uses both to lead us to the truth. He discusses the vice that is at the root of all falsehood and the virtue that is necessary for acknowledging and living out the truth. Learn how to overcome harmful ignorance, develop a “positive hunger” for the truth, and why the role of Advocate is uniquely tied to the sacrament of Confirmation. The reflection questions that accompany each chapter encourage the reader to examine his or her own relation to the truth and to invoke the Holy Spirit for guidance. Through clear explanations, numerous references to the lives of the saints, and insightful challenges, Father Andrew encourages us to love and live out the truth, found with the help of the Holy Spirit in the will of God.

Anti-Blackness and Christian Ethics
Vincent W. Lloyd and Andrew Prevot

From police violence to mass incarceration, from environmental racism to micro-aggressions, the moral gravity of anti-black racism is attracting broad attention. How do Christian ideas, practices, and institutions contribute to today’s struggle for racial justice? And how do they need to be reimagined in light of the challenges to white supremacy posed by today’s movements for racial justice? With contributions by leading experts such as Katie Grimes, Steven Battin, Santiago Slabod­sky, M. Shawn Copeland, Kelly Brown Douglas, Elias Ortega-Aponte, Ashon Crawley, Eboni Marshall Turman, and Bryan Massingale, this collection speaks to scholars, students, activists, and Christians of all races who believe that black lives matter.

The Crusades Controversy
Setting the Record Straight
Thomas F. Madden

This short book, written by medieval historian Thomas Madden, offers a fresh perspective on the Crusades. He refutes the commonly held belief that the Crusades are the reason for the current tensions between Islam and the West – and that Catholics are to blame for starting them in the first place. Closing the gap between historical understanding and popular perception, Madden shows that it’s not the Crusades that led to the conflict between the Muslim Middle East and the West, but the “artificial memory” passed down by Arab nationalists and Islamists. Today, when the Crusades are used as a justification for recent wars and acts of violence, The Crusades Controversy provides a sane understanding of how these “holy wars” fit within the context of history and the modern challenges our world faces today.

Defending the Faith
An Anti-Modernist Anthology
Edited by William H. Marshner

At the dawn of the 20th Century, several writers who were to become famous under the title of "Modernists" were advancing a deep agenda for reform in the faith and praxis of the Roman Catholic Church. But their agenda met with serious and scholarly opposition from another group of writers, whose essays are here made available in English. They include the historian and university rector Pierre Battifol, the biblical exegete M.J. Lagrange, OP, the Jesuit historical theologians Eugène Portalié and Léonce de Grandmaison, and the philosophers Eugène Franon and Joannès Wehrlé. All welcomed the historico-critical methods of research, and far from thinking them fatal to orthodoxy (as the Modernists did), they thought the Church's faith would survive and be strengthened by rigorous scholarship. These thinkers, then, are the true predecessors of Pius XII (Divino afflante Spiritu) and Vatican II (Dei Verbum). At the same time, these men thought outside the boxes drawn by 19th Century Positivism (Loisy), anti-intellectualist pragmatism (LeRoy), and romantic mysticism (Tyrrell). Their concerns hold new significance in the light of John Paul II's 1990 encyclical Fides et Ratio. Reading these too-long forgotten writers, then, deepens in a new way one's understanding of the Catholic Church's decision to decline and even condemn the Modernists' agenda, whether one ultimately applauds that decision or deplores it.

Every Catholic an Apostle
A Life of Thomas a. Judge, CM, 1868-1933
William L. Portier

Born in Boston of immigrant parents, Thomas A. Judge, CM (1868-1933) preached up and down the east coast on the Vincentian mission band between 1903 and 1915. Disturbed by the "leakage" of the immigrant poor from the church, he enlisted and organized lay women he met on the missions to work for the "preservation of the faith," his watchword. This pioneer of the lay apostle founded two religious communities, one of women and one of men. He spent the last decade of his life trying to gain canonical approval for these groups, organizing them, and helping them learn "to train the work-a-day man and woman into an apostle, to cause each to be alert to the interests of the Church, to be the Church." The Great Depression ended this expansive mood and time and put agonizing pressure on Judge, his disciples, and their work. In 1932, the year before Judge's death, the apostolic delegate, upon being appraised of Judge's financial straits, described his work as "the only organized movement of its kind in the Church today that so completely meets the wishes of the Holy Father with reference to the Lay Apostolate."

Everybody Needs to Forgive Somebody
Twelve Stories of Real People Who Discovered the Life-Changing Power of Grace
Allen R. Hunt

Forgiveness is underrated mainly because it is underused. We fail to capture the power of forgiveness because we are afraid of it, because we have grown comfortable in our familiar wounds, or because we are sinfully stubborn. But the power is there waiting for us. The lesson is simple: Give forgiveness and you will unleash a flood of grace on yourself and on those around you. When you clench your fists and grit your teeth in anger toward someone, you have no room in your heart for God to place His hand in yours. This little book, and the twelve real life stories in it, will help you capture the power of forgiveness in your life. Because everybody needs to forgive somebody.

Handbook of Catholic Social Teaching
A Guide for Christians in the World Today
Edited by Martin Schlag

Handbook of Catholic Social Teaching employs a question and answer format, to better accentuate the response of the Church's message to the questions Catholics have about their social role and what the Church intends to teach about it. It is the first short book on Catholic Social Teaching to ground itself thoroughly in the longer and authoritative Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church (2004), following the compendium's structure but rendering its key points more succinctly and accessibly. It also brings in more recent papal encyclicals like Caritas in Veritate and Laudato Si and new special topics (such as gender ideology). Written in consultation with the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, and already a best-seller in Italy, the Handbook should take its place alongside the Catechism on the shelf of informed Catholics as works that can inform what we believe and do in the public sphere.

The Marian Option
God’s Solution to a Civilization in Crisis
Carrie Gress

Dr. Carrie Gress provides a thoroughly researched bird’s eye view of the significant cultural and military events mediated through Mary on behalf of her spiritual children. From miraculous victories to the soaring heights of culture, you have never seen Mary like this before. Until now, books on the Virgin Mary have generally focused upon one apparition or various theological elements of this mysterious woman. But the scope of The Marian Option is far greater. Drawing from a vast array of dogmas, Vatican approved apparitions, and writings of the saints, Dr. Gress has pulled together the remarkable story of Mary’s overwhelming influence and intercession. Using history, sound theology, and a detective’s eye, Gress brings to light the fascinating details of Mary’s role in major geopolitical shifts.

Miracle in Motion
Living a Purposeful Life
Antonio Martinez, Jr., SJ with David Warden

It is a memoir that teaches by revealing his own failures, disappointments, and struggle to find purpose in his life. Father TJ informs the kids and their parents what hard work can accomplish, but also teaches the elite—the CEOs of large corporations, and the investment bankers, lawyers and accountants who serve them—the value of opening the doors to a better life for all, especially the forgotten smart kids of the ghetto.

The Road of Hope
A Gospel from Prison
Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan

The Road of Hope is a collection of messages written by Vietnamese Cardinal Francis Xavier Van Thuan, who Matthew Kelly calls a modern-day legend. Van Thuan wrote the manuscript for The Road of Hope during his thirteen years of imprisonment (nine of which were spent in isolation cells). The book contains 1,001 short “pensees”—short, numbered paragraphs of encouragement and spiritual counsel. The pages of the manuscript were smuggled out of Vietnam while Cardinal Van Thuan was imprisoned and secretly printed as The Road of Hope. It was instantly popular with the Vietnam people (both Christians and non-Christians) despite the government’s attempts to halt its distribution.

Strange Journey
How Two Homesick Pilgrims Stumbled Back into the Catholic Church
Jessica Mesman Griffith and Jonathan Ryan

In Strange Journey, Jessica Mesman Griffith and Jonathan Ryan write from their experiences with grief, addiction, divorce, death, abuse, and mental illness. Their stories reveal the pain of sin and struggle, and the stunning reality of grace in action. They promise to accompany the ailing, the questioning, and the wounded—without fear, judgment, or cynicism—on the way to clearing the overgrown paths to the source of true healing. Strange Journey speaks to those on the margins, to those who have ever felt alienated from God, and to those drawn to ritual and beauty and who are open to the unexpected. As Jessica and Jonathan have discovered, God never leaves us. Divine love reaches out to us and welcomes us home.
