  • Blessed Are You

    $17.99

    Melanie Rigney uses stories of the saints, our sisters in faith, to help readers grow in their spiritual lives. Some of these saints are familiar Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Siena, Bernadette of Lourdes, Elizabeth Ann Seton while others are not so well known Maria Karlowska, Claudine Thevenet, Josephine Bakhita, Margaret Flesch. They come from different places and different times, creating an intimate portrait of the universal Church. Yet the lives of each of these women illustrate the qualities of the Beatitudes what the “Catechism of the Catholic Church” calls the heart of Jesus s preaching (1716) in a down-to-earth and human way. Through the lives of these exemplary women saints and the qualities they espouse meekness, mourning, poverty of spirit, justice, mercy, purity of heart, peace, righteousness women will find ways to live more fully the Gospel values of Christian life.

  • Forgiving Mother : A Marian Novena Of Healing And Peace

    $18.99

    Do you want to be well? That’s what Jesus asked the sick man at Bethesda. Wouldn’t it seem obvious that he wanted healing since he’d lingered pool-side for decades? Why else would he have been there?

    Do you want to be well? Believe it or not, for a very long time, my answer to that question was, “no.” I wanted to be vindicated, excused, hidden, and even at times patronized for the wounds I’d suffered from my mother’s mental illness.

    Mary is the answer to our need for healing. She cares about the pain we bear because of the way we’ve been treated and hurt by our mothers. She cares not only about the fact that the pain is there, but also about how to help us heal from it.

    Do you want to be well? Do you really want to be well? Are you ready to go through the work of effecting that healing? I think you are, otherwise you never would have picked up this book.

    In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stories of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life. The stories are supplemented with moving accounts from her own life, and from the lives of women like you, to demonstrate that sometimes the best way to find healing, strength, and wholeness in Christ is, ironically, to lead with vulnerability and openness.

    Ultimately, Jesus Approaches teaches that finding the fullness of life for which you were created begins with bringing your brokenness to the Lord.

  • Medieval Writings On Female Spirituality

    $24.00

    Biographies, poetic compositions, works that are mystical, prophetic, visionary, or meditative: the selections here reflect the developments in medieval piety, particularly in the link between female spirituality and the body. Included are the dramatic visionary writings of Hildegard of Bingen; letters and poems by Hadewijch expressing passionate love for God; and Marguerite Porete’s allegorical poem “The Mirror of Simple Souls,” a dialogue between Love and Soul that was condemned as heretical. Also included are biographies written by male ecclesiastics of women such as Christine the Astonishing, whose extraordinary behavior included being resurrected at her own funeral; revelations received by Bridget of Sweden, the first woman to found a religious order; and excerpts from The Book of Margery Kempe, in which Margery imagines herself as a servant caring for the Virgin Mary in her childhood.

    This volume, edited by Elizabeth Spearing, who also prepared some of the translations, features a rich introduction to the lives and religious experiences of its subjects, as well as full explanatory notes.

  • Ordained Women Deacons

    $31.99

    A recent theological statement from the Roman Catholic Church has increased hopes that while women may not be ordained as priests, their ordination as deacons may soon become reality. a aThis is a new, enlarged edition of a groundbreaking book that gathered historical evidence from ancient liturgies, literature, art and inscriptions on graves to show that the practice of ordaining women as deacons in the first ten centuries of the Church was normative. Women carried out sacramental rites alongside priests and had responsibilities for the care of the Christian community. Recent research has identified over 120 known female deacons u a figure that has tripled since this books first appearance, under the title No Women in Holy Orders? in 2002. a aThis offers a positive, theological and historical contribution to a debate that is fast gaining momentum in the Catholic Church worldwide.

  • Quilting And Braiding

    $16.95

    “Can a male savior save women?” In answering this profound question, and as a way of engaging women and men who seek a deeper understanding of the role of Jesus Christ in contemporary Christianity, Quilting and Braiding explores the Christologies of pivotal feminist theologians-Sallie McFague and Elizabeth Johnson-and examines the impact of feminist Christology on the field of theology.

    For centuries scholars have studied, debated, and articulated their understanding of the life, message, and impact of Jesus Christ (incarnation and salvation). In Quilting and Braiding, Shannon Schrein examines critical questions arising from feminist thought that address these core Christian beliefs. She explores the constructivist Christology of McFague and the revisionist Christology of Johnson and examines how each makes use of language, particularly metaphor and analogy, in addressing the Christological concerns of women today.

    Drawing its imagery from practices that have typically been a part of women’s heritage-quilting and braiding-this work forms a footbridge between tradition and contemporary concerns, bringing the study of Christology into the lives of God’s people.

  • Who Does He Say You Are

    $18.99

    Shortly after the death of her brother, Lazarus, Martha offers this confident response to Jesus’ gentle challenge, echoing the confession of Peter: “Yes, Lord, I have believed that you are the Christ, the Son of God come into the world” (Jn 11:26-27). Her response to this question would change the course of her life–of all their lives. And to the extent that we echo her confession, it transforms us as well.

    In Who Does He Say You Are, Catholic missionary and speaker Colleen C. Mitchell captures the confessions of twelve more women from the Gospels, and shows how their stories answer this crucial question of identity: “Who does He say you are?” Holding up Mary as the ultimate example of intimate, transforming union, Mitchell weaves together moving anecdotes of her own search for identity as a Catholic woman–along with twelve accounts of women in Scripture–that are at once fresh yet familiar. Questions at the end of each chapter can easily be adapted for group study, or used for private journaling or reflection.
