Category: Books > Biographies > Biographies
Author/Artist: NOONE, VAL
ISBN-10: 0646820885
ISBN-13: 9780646820880
Publisher: Val Noone
Price: AU$29.95
Description: Dorothy Day (1897-1980), writer and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, is one of the most interesting and puzzling figures in the history of American Catholicism and of American dissent.

With Peter Maurin, a wandering French-born scholar, she ran a house of hospitality in New York's lower east side and founded a monthly newspaper called the Catholic Worker, from which a movement grew and continues today.

In August 1970, Dorothy visited Australia. To mark the 50th anniversary, Val Noone, who spent time with her on that occasion, puts on record details of her stay and explores her long-term impact. For instance, in Australia, her practice and ideas offered an alternative to the Santamaria movement. This book tables and respects the intriguing enigmas of Dorothy's life, with a focus on her Australian connections. Although dealing with religion, it is written for the general reader.

ISBN-13: 9781632533463
Publisher: Franciscan University Press
Price: AU$38.95
Description: A universal pattern can be found in all societies and in fact in all of creation. We see it in the seasons of the year; the stories of Scripture; the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; the rise and fall of civilizations; and even in our own lives.

Father Richard Rohr shows how understanding and embracing this pattern can give us hope in difficult times and the courage to push through messiness and even great chaos to find a new way of being in the world.

The Cross and the Eucharist in Early Christianity: A Theological and Liturgical Investigation
Category: Books > Liturgy > Liturgy Books
Author/Artist: CARDO, DANIEL
ISBN-10: 1108716571
ISBN-13: 9781108716574
Publisher: Cambridge Uni Press
Price: AU$39.95
Description: The Cross was present at the Eucharist in early Christianity as an idea, a gesture, and an object. Over time, these different actualizations of the quintessential symbol of Christianity have generated important questions about their meaning and function, among them: is the Eucharist a meal and/or a sacrifice? Can the sign of the Cross illuminate the absence of a Roman epiclesis? Is it pertinent -historically and theologically - to use an altar Cross?

In this study, Daniel Cardó explores the relation between the Cross and the Eucharist. Offering a thorough and fresh reading of patristic and Roman liturgical texts, he identifies their emphases and common themes on the Cross and the Eucharist, and demonstrates their significance for the liturgical debates of recent decades.
