4 The Light and the Lens (Leader's Guide)
ip 1932589058 / 9781932589054 The Light and the Lens. Understanding Scripture an
The Light and the Lens. Understanding Scripture and Tradition. Despite the fact that the Church teaches that “access to sacred Scripture ought to be wide open to the Christian faithful,” many Catholics feel intimidated, skeptical, or even a bit fearful to begin a serious study of the Bible and don’t know how to start. Catholics are taking to Scripture in greater numbers. As they do, they make the surprising discovery that the Bible is a thoroughly Catholic book! In The Light and the Lens Leader's Guide in the Catholic Faith Explorers series, participants will learn: * how revelation has been handed down in both written and unwritten form: Scripture and Tradition * where we got the Bible * how the covenants in the Old Testament lead us to the new and everlasting covenant of the New Testament – Jesus Christ * about the role of Scripture in the Church and guidelines for sensible scripture reading, and that * Scripture is vital to our life as disciples of Jesus Christ.Length: 3 ring binder Edition: Paperback

John, Vol. 1, Adrienne von Speyr
5 Adrienne von Speyr John, Vol. 1
ip 
The first of von Speyr's scriptural commentaries, focusing on her reflections on the first five chapters of John and the beginning of the public life of Our Lord. She shares moving meditations on such profound and dramatic scenes as the witness of John the Baptist, the call of the disciples, the wedding at Cana, the cleansing of the money-changers in the temple, the Samaritan woman, etc. The combination of the Scripture verses and her meditations provide rich nourishment for prayer and spiritual reading. This series is particularly important because the spirituality of St. John, the Apostle of Divine Love, was the central source of von Speyr's own inspiration and spiritual life. Adrienne von Speyr was a contemporary Swiss convert, mystic, wife, medical doctor and author of some 70 books on spirituality and theology. She entered the Church under the direction of one the greatest theologians and spiritual writers of the 20th century, Fr. Hans Urs von Balthasar, who became her spiritual director and confessor for the last 30 years of her life. Her writings, recognized as a major contribution to the great mystical writings of the Church, are being translated and published by Ignatius Press. Among her most important works are Book of All Saints, Confession, The World of Prayer, Handmaid of the Lord, and The Passion from Within. Length: 375 pages Edition: Hardcover

John, Vol. 2, Adrienne von Speyr
6 Adrienne von Speyr John, Vol. 2
ip 089870412X / 9780898704129 The Discourses of Controversy
The mystic von Speyr continues her reflections on the Gospel of John, concentrating here on the discourses of Jesus in chapters 6-12. The various other events included by Saint John in these chapters are seen primarily by him as the occasion for new confrontations between Jesus and his disputants. These reflections present the moment in which the limited, self-satisfied standpoint of Christ's hearers must let itself be burst open into the unlimited, loving standpoint of the Lord. Some of the controversial discourses in this section of John's Gospel which von Speyr comments on include: The Multiplication of the Loaves; The Bread of Life; The Adulteress; The Man Born Blind; The Raising of Lazarus; The Good Shepherd, and The Entry into Jerusalem. The combination of the Scripture verses and von Speyr's moving meditations provide rich nourishment for prayer and spiritual reading.

Letter to the Ephesians, Adrienne von Speyr
8 Adrienne von Speyr Letter to the Ephesians
ip 0898705703 / 9780898705706 
The contemporary mystic and spiritual writer Von Speyr gives a verse by verse commentary on St. Paul's letter to the Ephesians that is the fruit of her own contemplative meditation and prayerful reflection. As with her other volumes of New Testament meditations, this one bears two distinctive features. First, her method of expressing the theological meaning of an enunciation is not merely to state the universal Christian truth, but also to characterize the particular angle of vision from which the sacred writer (St. Paul) sees it. Thus Paul's way of conceiving the content and life of faith, and the self-conscious role of the apostle in the economy of salvation accordingly stands out in bold relief. Secondly, Von Speyr always retraces the content of the words back to the source of revelation, which is the Trinity-she has an unremitting regress to the Triune God who occupies the central position in the whole of scriptural revelation, and is its one viewpoint and theme that must be heard for its own sake.

Victory of Love, Adrienne von Speyr
9 Adrienne von Speyr Victory of Love
ip 0898703042 / 9780898703047 A Meditation on Romans 8
The mystic von Speyr provides profound and original meditations on each verse of St. Paul's rich summary of the meaning of the Christian faith. The eighth chapter of St. Paul's letter to the Romans, a radiant trumpet-call in the tremendous symphony of the Pauline writings, proclaims the ultimate victory of the love of God through Christ in the Holy Spirit in the faithful united as the Church. In our age, which has become focused on the darker side of man, von Speyr shows how the Christian needs nothing more urgently than the courage, inspiration and hope that God offers to us through these writings of St. Paul. "For I am convinced that there is nothing in death or life, nothing in all creation that can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus Our Lord." — Saint Paul "The Word of God must be accepted by man in the nakedness of his heart without compromise or safety-measures.... Nothing can hold back the constant extension of this victory of Christ's love. Saint Paul's proclamation has here the character of absolute though progressive totality." — Hans Urs von Balthasar, From the Foreword "A gripping meditation on Romans 8, one of the pivotal texts of Pauline Christology. A powerful trumpet blast for the prayerful reader sounded by one of the most extraordinary writers of our century." — Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., Author, Spiritual Passages Adrienne von Speyr was a contemporary Swiss convert, mystic, wife, medical doctor and author of some 70 books on spirituality and theology.

The History and the Future of the Roman Liturgy, Denis Crouan
13 Denis Crouan The History and the Future of the Roman Liturgy
ip 1586170155 / 9781586170158 
Since the Second Vatican Council, the liturgy has become the source of conflicting opinions. This situation has given rise to disputes that continue to divide those who practice their faith. But what has created this state of affairs? Author Denis Crouan shows how the decisions made by Vatican II that aimed at restoring the Roman rite were presented poorly, applied incorrectly, and often not applied at all. In many places the Mass has been turned into a permanent work-in-progress, in which the objectivity of the liturgy yields to the subjectivity of those who take part in it. Where does the current unwillingness to apply the liturgical rules come from? Why have the directives of the last council been ignored or circumvented? This book offers answers to the questions asked by Catholics who want to understand their liturgy better, so as to put an end to deviant practices that threaten Church unity.

The Organic Development of the Liturgy, Dom Alcuin Reid
14 Dom Alcuin Reid The Organic Development of the Liturgy
ip 1586171062 / 9781586171063 
How has the Liturgy of the Roman rite developed and changed in history before and after the Council of Trent? What principles have determined the boundaries of legitimate liturgical reform over the centuries? What was the Liturgical Movement? Did Guéranger, Beauduin, Guardini, Parsch, Casel, Bugnini, Jungmann, Bouyer and the Movement's other leaders know and respect these principles? And what is to be said of the not insignificant liturgical reforms carried out by Saint Pius X, Popes Pius IX and Pius XII and Blessed John XXIII in the course of the twentieth century? In The Organic Development of the Liturgy, Dom Alcuin Reid examines these questions systematically, incisively and in depth, identifying both the content and context of the principle of "organic development"—a fundamental principle of liturgical reform of the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium—making a significant contribution to the understanding of the nature of the Liturgical Movement and to the ongoing re-assessment of the reforms enacted following the Council.

Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word, Vol. 1, Erasmo Leiva
15 Erasmo Leiva Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word, Vol. 1
ip 0898705584 / 9780898705584 Meditations on the Gospel According to St. Matthew
To the unstudied eye, Matthew's gospel can seem a terse narrative, almost a historical document and not the tremendously spiritual (and doctrinal) storehouse that it is. Erasmo Leiva here acts as our guide, showing Matthew's prose to be not terse so much as economical--astoundingly so given its depth. The lay reader can derive great profit from reading this. Each short meditation comments on a verse or two, pointing to some facet of the text not immediately apparent. Leiva's work is scholarly but eminently approachable by the non-technical reader. The tone is very much gustate et videte, quoniam suavis est Dominus [taste and see how good the Lord is]-as it is "friend, come up higher!". The goal of the book is to help the reader experience the heat of the divine heart/the light of the divine Word. Leiva points to Matthew's gospel as being deeply ecclesial because it is first Christological. He comments on the Greek text, demonstrating to the reader nuances in the text that defy translation into English without serious revision of the text. Leiva uses linguistic analysis to aid the non-Greek reader with the literal meaning of the text; numerous quotes from the Fathers and the liturgy of the church demonstrate the way the Tradition has lived and read the Word of God. His theological reflection vivifies doctrine by seeking its roots in the words and actions of Jesus. Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis obtained his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Theology from Emory University. Presently he is a Professor of Literature and Theology at the University of San Francisco.

To the unstudied eye, St. Matthew's gospel can seem a terse narrative, almost a historical document and not the tremendously spiritual (and doctrinal) storehouse that it is. In his second volume of meditations on Matthew (chapters 12-18), Erasmo Leiva shows Matthew’s prose to be not terse so much as economical—astoundingly so given its depth. The lay reader can derive great profit from reading this. Each short meditation comments on a verse or two, pointing to some facet of the text not immediately apparent, but rich with meaning. Leiva’s work is scholarly but eminently approachable by the lay reader. The goal of the book is to help the reader experience the heat of the divine heart/the light of the divine Word.

His theological reflection vivifies doctrine by seeking its roots in the words and actions of Jesus. “Fire of Mercy will be a classic of Catholic culture. It is certainly original, like no other meditation on the Scriptures you will ever read.” —John Saward, Author, The Beauty of Holiness Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis, a Professor of Literature and Theology at the University of San Francisco, is the author of several books including The Way of the Disciple and Love’s Sacred Order.

The Way of the Disciple, Erasmo Leiva-Merikakisi
17 Erasmo Leiva-Merikakisi The Way of the Disciple
ip 0898709350 / 9780898709353 
This book explores in depth six Gospel scenes so as to discover in these the essential elements of Christian discipleship. It describes the basic requirements for receiving the Word of God effectively in our hearts: namely, that we “become wet clay in God’s hands”, so that God can impress upon us any form he chooses. It also contemplates the vital position of the Mother of the Lord in the life of his disciples. The author shows that the call to discipleship is above all an invitation to intimate companionship with Jesus, as we read in Mark: “Jesus called to him those whom he desired… in order that they might be with him” (3:14-15). What we normally call the “active apostolate” can never be an end in itself, but only the fruits of a life of prayer and adoration. These are what must be at the heart of a disciple’s life, which can never be swept up by mere activism. “A treasure for Christians who want to be Jesus’ disciples from the core of their heart. I warmly recommend this book as a guide to true discipleship and engaged Gospel-reading.” —Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, Editor, Catechism of the Catholic Church Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis, a professor of Theology at the University of San Francisco, is the author of Fire of Mercy: Heart of the Word Length: 148 pages Edition: Paperback
