Catholic Family Fun
2 Catholic Family Fun
DOSP 
Discover how game night/day meets Catholicism in Catholic Family Fun: A Guide for the Adventurous, Overwhelmed, Creative or Clueless, an inspirational guidebook offering activities with strategies and suggestions for fun family engagement - with one another and with faith! A great resource for parents, grandparents, caretakers, and family friends, this book conceptualizes a wide range of fun, practical activities that strengthen faith formation in young to grade-school age children. Author Sarah Reinhard, busy mother of three, tested these activities in her own family. Conversationally written, she includes her experiences and stories, adding a uniquely personal element. While she sympathetically acknowledges the limitations of parenting and family time, she encourages a realistic approach to bringing real life and faith together-an approach in which faith does not have to be put on the back burner, but rather becomes part of your ongoing family interaction. Respecting different family demographics and dynamics, she also encourages modification of her ideas to what works well for you and your family. Her reassuring, 'you-can-do-it' approach takes into account modern-day realities such as dual working parents, single parents, technological domination, pregnancy, marriage, and more. Divided into nine chapters-silly activities, storytelling, craft projects, meal sharing, outdoor adventures, places to go, saints to celebrate, ways to serve, ways to pray-there is a whole lot of fun to go around for everyone! Handy indexes of preparation time, duration, and cost will help you find the ideas that suit your your family's schedule and budget.

Theology of the Body Explained-Commentary on JPII's Man & Wo
3 Theology of the Body Explained-Commentary on JPII's Man & Wo
cw 
If Pope John Paul II's theology of the body is a "theological time bomb set to go off" (George Weigel), this book lights the fuse. With clarity and precision Christopher West unpacks the pope's weighty talks and translates them into a much more accessible language. Theology of the Body Explained makes the perfect companion to the Pope's text. For the first time ever, readers have a commentary that follows the complete series of general audiences, explained in an appealing way. Scholars and average readers alike will find this commentary greatly rewarding. "In my biography of the Pope, I wrote that the theology of the body needs explication for those who aren't specialists in biblical studies, theology, or philosophy. I am delighted that Christopher West has taken up that challenge. With intellectual care, with the experience bred of long years of teaching this material in the classroom and the parish, and taking account of his own experiences as a husband and father, Christopher West has put us in his debt by making the "Theology of the Body" available to a wide and, I hope, appreciative readership.

Privilege of Being a Woman, Alice von Hildebrand
9 Alice von Hildebrand Privilege of Being a Woman
ip 097061067X / 9780970610676 
Women historically have been denigrated as lower than men or viewed as privileged. Dr. Alice von Hildebrand characterizes the difference between such views as based on whether man's vision is secularistic or steeped in the supernatural. She shows that feminism's attempts to gain equality with men by imitation of men is unnatural, foolish, destructive, and self-defeating. The Blessed Mother's role in the Incarnation points to the true privilege of being a woman. Both virginity and maternity meet in Mary who exhibits the feminine gifts of purity, receptivity to God's word, and life-giving nurturance at their highest.Edition: Paperback

CHRISTIAN TOTALITY  Theology of the Consecrated Life, Basil Cole, OP, STD
13 Basil Cole, OP, STD CHRISTIAN TOTALITY Theology of the Consecrated Life

This book is a comprehensive and scholarly treatise on Christian living. After highlighting the dignity of lay Christian life and its mission to transform the world, it contrasts the lay and consecrated vocations and then proceeds to explore the splendid love and mystery of the consecrated life from the scriptural, historical, conciliar and theological perspectives. It deals at length with the three evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience which are the principal elements of the religious life, with the common life and apostolic work of consecrated men and women. It also addresses the mutual influence of consecrated life and ministerial priesthood in the lives of religious who are ordained. Besides tracing the origin and development of the three evangelical counsels, the book presents a lucid and balanced exposition of the real meaning and essential features of the allied virtues and suggests practical ways and means of avoiding pitfalls and of growing in each virtue. Of special interest is the sensitive treatment of delicate issues like friendship with the same or opposite sex among consecrated persons. Christian Totality is a stimulating introduction for beginners and a heartening re-exploration for those who have been struggling for years to fulfill their dedication to Christ. 367 pages

Living the Truth in Love:    A Biblical Introduction    To Moral Theology, Benedict Ashley, OP
14 Benedict Ashley, OP Living the Truth in Love: A Biblical Introduction To Moral Theology

In Living the Truth in Love, the reader is taught to listen attentively to what God has to say to us, because God is wiser than we. The moral theology presented here takes into account the insights of psychology, philosophy and sociology but is rooted in the moral wisdom of the Sacred Scriptures as contained in the Spirit-guided tradition of the Church. Incorporating the teachings of Pope John Paul II in Veritatis Splendor and those of the new Catechism of the Catholic Church, Father Ashley demonstrates the universality and permanence of moral law and very effectively applies that law to the changed and changing circumstances of our own times.558 pp.

Choosing a World-View and Value-System: An Ecumenical Apologetics, Benedict M. Ashley, O.P.
15 Benedict M. Ashley, O.P. Choosing a World-View and Value-System: An Ecumenical Apologetics

This work attempts to consider the chief apparent differences between a variety of world-views and value-systems to determine how real these differences are and where they can be shown to have much in common on which to build a culture worthy of humankind. Thus the humanistic philosophies of life prevalent in the West today, the mythological religions largely found in isolated parts of Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Siberia and the Americas, the emanation religions of the East (Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism), and the creation religions of the West (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) are all dealt with at some length in these pages. Since it is the task of Christian apologetics to disclose Jesus Christ as the Truth in which all truth, from whatever source it comes, can be honestly acknowledged and reconciled, this work is designed to help all those who seek a world-view and value-system by which they can live their lives to find everything they are looking for in Christ and in the Church which He founded. 326 pp.

Jesus' Ways to Success, Biju Michael, sdb
16 Biju Michael, sdb Jesus' Ways to Success

Success is defined by Webster's Dictionary as "the achievement of something designed, planned or attempted; the gaining of fame or prosperity." The Catechism tells us that Jesus, the Master, defines success as "fulfilling that for which we were created, namely, to know, love and serve God on earth so as to be happy with Him forever in heaven." Such success doesn't just happen. It has to be carefully planned and pursued. Goals -- long and short term -- have to be defined; a direction has to be set and certain rules have to be followed. Drawing on a wide variety of sources, biblical and otherwise, the author sets forth some very helpful guidelines for the pursuit of happiness here and hereafter. They include practical advice on how to be prepared, to work smarter, to give it your best and to put first things first in life. Among the many virtues discussed are honesty, loyalty, compassion, kindness, generosity, humility, forgiveness, prudence and perseverance. The Divine Master in His teachings, as set forth in these pages, provides a veritable treasure trove of good advice for everyone seeking success. 154 pp
