Give Up Worry for Lent!: 40 Days to Finding Peace in Christ

ISBN-13: 9781594718816
Publisher: Ave Maria Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$28.95
Description: Catholic author and self-described “recovering worrier” Gary Zimak combines practical spirituality, daily scripture readings, and simple action steps to help you kick the worry habit as part of your Lenten renewal. He shows you how to let go of the anxiety-producing areas of life in order to find the lasting peace that comes from trusting God.

During the season of Lent, Catholics and other Christians frequently give up something they enjoy as a measure of penance or self-discipline—and often fall back into old habits at the first “Alleluia!” In Give Up Worry for Lent!, Zimak offers fellow worriers practical, scripture-centered advice on how to relinquish the need to control the uncontrollable—not just for Lent but for good—and how to find peace in Christ.

From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, Zimak guides you to ponder a scripture passage and to apply it to your own life by following four simple steps:

read
reflect
respond
pray

As you continue to meditate on scripture and practice the simple action steps at the end of each reflection, you will find it easier to replace old worries with new messages of hope and to change your life forever.

Envisioning the Future of Consecrated Life: Its Beauty and Challenge During These Troubled Times
Author/Artist: JARAMILLO, EILEEN
ISBN-10: 1545654867
ISBN-13: 9781545654866
Publisher: Xulon Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$30.95
Description: Rembrandt Harmenzoon van Rijn is considered the greatest visual Dutch artist of his time because his paintings evoke emotion and motive. Inside Envisioning the Future of Consecrated Life: Its Beauty and Challenge During these Troubled Times, author Eileen Jaramillo features this painter's biblical art to stir the reader into deep thought about the person of Christ, the universal call to respond to a world in turmoil, and the particular charism of women and men religious within that framework.

Women and men religious are consecrated in a special way because they have committed themselves to the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. This is radical living of the life of Christ within the world. Here, the author addresses the challenges that are as much a part of the lives of religious as they are for others, secularism, injustice, poverty, and the environment, while also highlighting the distinctive Spirit-centered charism of women and men religious as the foundation for their particular response to these challenges.

It is well known that the number of Catholic nuns, sisters, brothers, and priests has declined since the 1960s. Using statistics from the Center for the Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), the author looks at that decline along with the way women and men religious are re-envisioning their lives through mergers, unions, and reorganizations. Furthermore, Jaramillo offers insight into new religious communities that are coming into existence and the new form of consecrated life that is emerging.

Envisioning the Future of Consecrated Life gives voice to what younger sisters are saying about the future. In these pages, the beauty of consecrated life resonates while the challenges are not ignored.

For the Life of the World: Theology that Makes a Difference
Author/Artist: VOLF MIRASLAV & M CROASMUN
ISBN-10: 1587434016
ISBN-13: 9781587434013
Publisher: Brazos Press
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$41.95
Description: The question of what makes life worth living is more vital now than ever. In today's pluralistic, post-secular world, universal values are dismissed as mere matters of private opinion, and the question of what constitutes flourishing life, for ourselves, our neighbors, and the planet as a whole, is neglected in our universities, our churches, and our culture at large. Although we increasingly have technology to do almost anything, we have little sense of what is truly worth accomplishing.

In this provocative new contribution to public theology, world-renowned theologian Miroslav Volf and Matthew Croasmun explain that the intellectual tools needed to rescue us from our present malaise and meet our new cultural challenge are the tools of theology. A renewal of theology is crucial to help us articulate compelling visions of the good life, find our way through the maze of contested questions of value, and answer the fundamental question of what makes life worth living.

Hi God 7 CD
Author/Artist: LANDRY, CAREY & KINGHORN, CAROL JEAN
ISBN-13:
Publisher: OCP Publications
Binding: COMPACT DISK
Price: AU$32.99
Description: HI GOD 7 continues the tradition of HI GOD through the enthusiasm and energy of young people's voices, expressing their faith through singable melodies. Its songs emphasise the words of Jesus: "Love one another as I have loved you," always with a sense of music as prayer.

Songs for Seasons
Many of these compositions mesh perfectly with moments of meditation in the liturgical year.
- "God-with-Us Forever" is an Advent hymn that works well with both a children's choir or entire assembly. It is ideal for the offertory or Communion rite, but fits with any moment of worship as well.
- "Born to Be Our Savior" is an upbeat and joyous song that can be sung during mass around Christmastime. However, it can serve as the spotlight arrangement for a child's Christmas pageant.
- "We Are the Light of Christ" is a powerful song of devotion and dedication to the following of Jesus. It shows the commitment of faith and the unification of Christians, especially during Easter, Pentecost and Confirmation ceremonies.

Communion for Young and Old
Some of the songs have been composed for children during First Communion or the Communion rite as a whole. "Jesus Come to Us," "Jesus, You Are Present" and "Love is the Best Gift," all serve as reminders of our joining in the name of Christ. And for younger parishioners, these songs will grow in their hearts as they embark on their personal journey through the church.

The CD has instrumental versions of the music so you can sing along!
