Augustine's City of God as a Pastoral and Spiritual Resource
Catholic Theological Union

After situating Augustine’s City of God in its 5th century political, religious and social context, this classic text will be probed for the challenges and questions it presents to the 21st century church and world. We will explore Augustine’s rhetoric and argument from key selections across the 22 books of City of God in order to discover how the Bishop of Hippo understood the relationship between Christian faith and social responsibility. Augustine’s insistence on divine grace as essential for a virtuous life will be explored for its pastoral applications to situations of conflict at local, regional and global levels. His eschatological vision will be examined with regard to implications for the spiritual life of Christian activists.

ASM 2019 Annual Meeting
American Society of Missiology

Lifestyles of the Rich and Faithful: Stewardship, Simplicity and Mission. As we come to grips with the economic and cultural consequences of globalization, where the gap between the rich and the poor has only widened (and not in a disconnected kind of way along racial and cultural lines) it feels timely once again to mine the depths of the rich biblical theme of stewardship. The truth that all peoples and all cultures are equal in the eyes of God has gained more overt affirmation than ever before, as the world has entered the postcolonial era. This has resulted in an earnest desire for authentic friendships and genuine partnerships as a way to define and practice intercultural mission. However, in order to achieve genuine equality in friendships and ministry partnerships across cultures, power dynamics, wealth and poverty, personal lifestyles, authority structures, etc. are issues to which we must attend. Otherwise, the missionary community-host church relationship falls to default colonial patterns of inequality that do not reflect the kingdom of God. Stewardship is a valuable underlying biblical theme that can aid in dealing with this range of issues.

We will draw on the wisdom of writers that Merton counted among his friends, incluing the Dalai Lama, Abraham Heschel, Julian of Norwich, Thich Nhat Hanh and Rainer Maria Rilke.

Summer Scripture Conference 2019
University of Saint Mary of the Lake

Theme: According to the Scriptures: The Relationship between Old and New Testaments. For this year’s theme, the presenters will be addressing how the Old Testament and New Testament inter-relate. How did Jewish scholars understand the Scriptures prior to the coming of Jesus Christ? How did Jesus refer to and understand the Scriptures in the same way? How did he reveal a new understanding? The Conference has always mirrored Genesis in that a speaker begins in the evening, then finishes their lectures in the morning. Later in the evening is considered a favorite aspect of the Conference with Evening Prayer followed by the Social where Scripture scholars and attendees mix and mingle to discuss and share all things Scripture and the faith.

Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality
Maryknoll Mission Institute

One of the most cherished images in the Celtic world is the memory of John the Beloved leaning against Jesus at the Last Supper. It was said that he therefore heard the heartbeat of God. He became a symbol of the practice of listening, listening for the beat of the Sacred deep within ourselves, within one another and within the body of the earth. This is the Christianity that emerged in the Celtic world in the earliest centuries. And it is a stream of Christian wisdom that is flowing again. It moves us to be aware of the Sacred at the heart of every moment and it calls us back into true relationship with the earth, with one another and with what is deepest in ourselves, all made of God.

Teilhard and Struggle: Drawn to the Road of Fire
Maryknoll Mission Institute

While on retreat in 1919, Teilhard experienced a transfiguration-like vision that he shares in his essay, The Spiritual Power of Matter. During this vision, Teilhard is moved to commit himself to a life of struggle in every aspect without yet knowing what these struggles might be. In this program, we will consider the many ways Teilhard is confronted with struggle—as a scientist, as a believer, as a lover, as a Jesuit, as a mystic, and as a faithful member of the Church. Together we will explore some of the more significant examples, notice Teilhard's responses and share our experiences in order to learn better ways of dealing with the struggles that we face in our lives and in our world today.

Defending the Faith
Steubenville Conferences

When our hearts desire to share the faith but we struggle to find the words, we can easily become timid, fearful, and frustrated; but God wants to give us bold and confident hearts that are moved by love to go forth with joy and share Jesus and the truth of the Church. The Defending the Faith Conference has sent forth tens of thousands of Catholics who have gone back to their families, parishes, and places of work with great zeal and love to share the truth and spread Christ’s love. Come and be empowered and equipped to fulfill your desires to lead others in faith.

Encore Priests: Pre-Retirement Workshop for Priests
Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology

This same workshop is also being presented on December 2-5, 2019.

This workshop is designed for priests in their 60s or approaching retirement. Encore Priests prepares priests for their transition into retirement. Of course, priests never fully retire. By the very nature of the sacrament of Holy Orders, priests always have some form of priestly ministry. But how can a mature priest transition into a retirement that is meaningful and vital? 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.

Site: Saint Meinrad, Indiana
Registration: $650 (includes program, materials, accommodations and meals)

Annibale Bugnini
Reformer of the Liturgy
Yves Chiron

In this book, French historian Yves Chiron turns his attention to one of the most influential figures of 20th-century Catholicism: Annibale Bugnini, guiding spirit of liturgical reform in the period surrounding the Second Vatican Council. Highly controversial in his day, and down to the present, Bugnini has attracted high praise from his disciples and vilification from his detractors—but all agree that without his energetic organizational skills and access to the levers of power, the most extensive overhaul of the Roman Catholic liturgy in the history of the Church would not have taken place as it did. Until now, there has been no biography that makes extensive use of all available documentary sources, including Bugnini’s own memoirs, Vatican publications, private correspondence, interviews, articles, and lectures. The present book has filled this lacuna with the scholarly care and dispassionate analysis for which the author’s books are praised at all points on the ecclesiastical spectrum.

The Black Christ
25th Anniversary Edition
Kelly Brown Douglas

In The Black Christ, first published in 1994, Kelly Brown Douglas offers a compelling portrait of who Jesus is for the Black community. She identifies the Black Christ not strictly in terms of race or theological constructs. The “Blackness” of Christ has more to do with commitment to Black freedom than appearance. Beginning with the early testimonies of the enslaved, through the writings and thought of religious and literary figures, voices from the Civil Rights and Black Power era, through the contemporary work of Black and Womanist theologians, Douglas presents a living tradition that speaks powerfully to the message of our day: Black Lives Matter. In a new introduction, she offers a moving account of the questions that motivated her work, and an overview of where those questions have since led her.

Christian Ministry in the Divine Milieu
Catholicity, Evolution and the Reign of God
Donald C. Maldari, SJ

The purpose of ministry, writes Fr. Maldari, is to channel the energy of the Holy Spirit through the diverse gifts in the community. Recognizing that the whole universe is sacred—a divine milieu—all ministry is sacred, too. Ministry is ultimately cooperating with God in furthering the process of creation to its fulfillment in salvation. It also humbly recognizes human limitation and dependence upon the Holy Spirit. Fr. Maldari thus suggests that the sacrament of holy orders needs rethinking to celebrate the sacramental character of all ministries.

Church as Dynamic Life-System
Shared Ministries and Common Responsibilities
Joseph A. Bracken, SJ

With the goal of sustaining the relevance and, paradoxically, the permanence of the church, Bracken proposes an open-ended systems approach to ecclesiology. He synthesizes the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Alfred North Whitehead to produce his novel argument, which is grounded in the language of process theology and a continually evolving universe. This book will appeal to readers of Diarmuid O’Murchu and Ilia Delio, and to followers of this intriguing series on catholicity.

Compassionate Christ, Compassionate People
Liturgical Foundations of Christian Spirituality
Bob Hurd

Spirituality is a motion, a responsive movement of heart, mind, and spirit to the life of God moving within us. Starting from his Roman Catholic roots but working ecumenically, Bob Hurd explores this notion of spirituality in two parts. Part 1 places it in the theological framework of Creation-Grace-Incarnation, concluding that its specific form is participation in Christ's self-emptying love of God, humankind, and creation. Part 2 investigates this kenotic spirituality liturgically, exploring how it comes to expression in the ritual stages of Gathering, Word, Eucharistic Prayer, Communion, and Sending. Comparing and contrasting each stage with corresponding patterns in various Protestant traditions, Hurd lays out the possibility of a spirituality common to Christians of various confessions.

Dreaming of Stones
Poems
Christine Valters Paintner

The poems in Dreaming of Stones are about what endures: hope and desire, changing seasons, wild places, love, and the wisdom of mystics. Inspired by the poet’s time living in Ireland these readings invite you into deeper ways of seeing the world. They have an incantational quality. Drawing on her commitment as a Benedictine oblate, the poems arise out of a practice of sitting in silence and lectio divina, in which life becomes the holy text. No stranger to poetry, Paintner’s bestselling spirituality titles have often included poems. In this first exclusively poetic collection, she writes with a contemplative heart about kinship with nature, ancestral connections, intimacy, the landscape, the unfolding nature of time, and Christian mystics. It can be read for reflection to spark the heart and to offer solace and inspiration in difficult times.

The Election of Pope Francis
An Inside Account of the Conclave that Changed History
Gerard O'Connell

The selection of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Buenos Aires in the papal election of 2013 made history in several ways: he was the first Latin American, the first Jesuit, and the first pope to choose the name Francis. But these “firsts” were only the beginning of a consequential papacy of historic proportions. Entering the conclave of 2013, Cardinal Bergoglio appeared on few lists of likely candidates. How then did his election come about? Written by a top Vatican journalist, this book is an inside, day-by-day account of the process that began with Pope Benedict XVI’s surprising decision to retire and continued up to Pope Francis’s election and installation. Gerard O’Connell and his wife—herself a Vatican correspondent from Argentina—had befriended Bergoglio years before and were among the very few journalists who predicted his election. Now, relying on extensive inside sources, he reveals the basis for that confidence and shares with us what actually happened inside the secret conclave.

Faith and Reason
Philosophers Explain Their Turn to Catholicism
Editors Brian Besong and Jonathan Fuqua

Too smart to believe in God? The twelve philosophers in this book are too smart not to, and their finely honed reasoning skills and advanced educations are on display as they explain their reasons for believing in Christianity and entering the Roman Catholic Church. Among the twelve converts are well-known professors and writers including Peter Kreeft, Edward Feser, J. Budziszewski, Candace Vogler, and Robert Koons. Each story is unique; yet each one details the various perceptible ways God drew these lovers of wisdom to himself and to the Church. In every case, reason played a primary role. It had to, because being a Catholic philosopher is no easy task when the majority of one's colleagues thinks that religious faith is irrational. Although the reasonableness of the Catholic faith captured the attention of these philosophers and cleared a space into which the seed of supernatural faith could be planted, in each of these essays the attentive reader will find a fully human story. The contributions are not merely collections of arguments; they are stories of grace.

From Hero to Servant to Mystic
Navigating the Deeper Waters of Priestly Spirituality
Scott P. Detisch

From Hero to Servant to Mystic addresses both the initial and ongoing formation of priests by tracing three significant stages in how their spiritual lives unfold. Fr. Scott Detisch offers seminarians, priests, spiritual directors, and clergy personnel directors a way of understanding the whole gamut of spiritual growth and development in priests by focusing on three major clusters of energies within men-the Hero, the Servant, and the Mystic. By recognizing the difficulties that may arise within the inner life and outer world of a priest, Detisch offers helpful methods for navigating through those challenging periods. By applying these energies to their spiritual lives, priests will experience a different form of relationship with the person of Christ-the Hero, who offers his life for Christ; the Servant, who ministers with Christ; and the Mystic, who lives his life in Christ.

Grace
On the Journey to God
Michael Casey

Benedictine monastic spirituality has emerged as an antidote to the spiritual and cultural challenges facing people of faith today. In this book, the author focuses specifically on GRACE, and the benevolence of God as it expresses itself in many different ways along our spiritual journey. What is a person likely to experience when beginning to give up him or herself conscientiously to the spiritual journey? In this beautiful guide, gradually, we come to realize that everything that happens in our lives is somehow the gift of our loving Father. Every journey is ultimately individual. As Casey explains, what you hear within your own spirit is more significant than what he can say. But his aim is to help you listen to the voice of God in your heart.

Righting Relations after the Holocaust and Vatican II
Essays in Honor of John T. Pawlikowski, OSM
Editors: Elena G. Procario-Foley and Robert A. Cathey

The idea of “righting relations” in history and creation as a particular articulation of the concept of justice is the broad theme that runs through many of John Pawlikowski’s contributions to different fields of inquiry. The aftermath of both the Holocaust and Vatican II called us to reflect on relationships, both personal and institutional. How do we repair wounded relationships? What is the nature of relationships with integrity? John Pawlikowski’s work as a social ethicist, scholar of the Holocaust, and specialist in interreligious dialogue is fundamentally based on the pursuit of right relationships and conditioned by responding to the moral claims of the Holocaust and Vatican II.

The Surprise of Reconciliation in the Catholic Tradition
James Carney and Laurie Johnston

This collection of original essays written expressly for this volume comes out of retreats and meetings on the subject of Catholic social reconciliation. How have ecclesial, liturgical, and ritual resources contributed to peace building during and after socio-political conflicts? The historical periods examined start with the patristic era and go up to such modern events as the "troubles" in Northern Ireland, restorative justice in U.S. prisons, resistance to the "shining path" violence in twentieth-century Peru, and reconciliation in Eastern Africa.

The Truth Will Make You Free
The New Evangelization for a Secular Age
Robert F. Leavitt, PSS

The available literature on the new evangelization is wide-ranging and focused on issues of ecclesial renewal. In The Truth Will Make You Free, Fr. Robert Leavitt adopts a different approach to the subject. From Paul VI until Pope Francis, the nature and challenges of modern secularism have become a recurring factor in the agenda of the new evangelization, yet often without historical perspective and philosophical balance. Few popular works bother to examine in such depth and scope, as this book does, what the history, nature, and implications of the secular age are for revitalizing ministry in an age of optional belief. Written for the interested layperson, seminarian, theology student, and pastor, The Truth Will Make You Free is an indispensable catechism for rethinking our understanding of the secular world in proclaiming the Gospel of Christ.
