  • Theology Of Style

    $16.95

    Your personal style reflects who you are?an extraordinary creation, beautifully designed by God.

    Every outfit we choose holds the power to express our unique personality and identity as cherished children of God. This truth goes beyond mere clothing; personal style is a divine expression of our unrepeatable identity, reflecting the fact that we are made in God’s image.

    In Theology of Style: Expressing the Unique and Unrepeatable You, author Lillian Fallon draws from her experience in the fashion industry to delve deep into the profound truth that what we wear is far more than just fabric on our bodies?it is a radiant statement of our unrepeatable identity, a tangible expression of being made in the image of our Creator.

    A speaker and writer on the intersection of personal style and faith, Lillian Fallon guides readers on a transformative journey to recognize and celebrate the power of personal style to help us know our value as unique and unrepeatable daughters of God.

    Through a combination of heartfelt anecdotes, humorous stories, and profound insights from St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, Theology of Style offers Catholic women practical guidance for developing their personal style and answers a series of key questions that often arise when discussing personal style, clothing choices, and modesty:

    *Does what we wear truly matter?
    *Can our clothing choices reflect our faith?
    *How does our personal style affirm our dignity as individuals created in the image of God?
    *How can we glorify God, and grow closer to him, through our clothing and personal style?
    *Where does modesty fit in?
    *And more!

    Within these pages, Catholic women will uncover the incredible significance of style as a tool for understanding their purpose, recognizing their worth, and building an intimate relationship with God. Readers will gain a deeper understanding of how they can align their personal style with their faith, embracing their divine identity and glorifying God in the process.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Women Who Hear Voices

    $8.95

    More than a few people today scoff at the notion of “religious experience.” What the believer accepts as God acting in human lives, the skeptic attributes to delusion or hysteria-especially when the believer is a woman. Indeed, the possibility of self-deception in the realm of religious experience is sufficiently great that even devotees tread softly around it. At what point does mindless enthusiasm come to an end and actual, transcendent reality begin?

    Sidney Callahan, a psychologist, author and Christian ethicist, describes authentic religious experience as the work of “a creative God of love who gives totally and renounces coercion.” Human beings, she says, “are wired for relationship.” They move instinctively toward a dynamic presence who abides within the world and in human affairs. In this Madeleva Lecture delivered at Saint Mary’s College in Indiana, Callahan affirms not only the reality but the usefulness of private religious experiences, especially those of “women barred from hierarchical authority,” which, she says, “can be a rich source of strength for the church.” Beginning with the insights of William James and Rudolf Otto, and borrowing from contemporary theologians Karl Rahner and John E. Thiel, Callahan describes the way religious “signals” emerge into society through the attentive reflection of individuals. And the world is better for it. “Women who hear voices and see visions and have prophetic and intimate religious experiences,” she states, “have given witness to God’s justice and equality while affirming God’s maternal love.”

  • Medieval Writings On Female Spirituality

    $18.00

    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.

  • Women And The Value Of Suffering

    $29.95

    Is there a value to suffering for women? Is Christianity a religion that condones the victimization of women? Can Christians faith, who are called to hope in the midst of despair, respond to experiences of suffering in all their ambiguity and complexity? How can people proclaim the “good news” in the midst of radical suffering? Women and the Value of Suffering explores these questions and offers a critical summary of recent discussions of evil and suffering from a variety of women’s theological and spiritual perspectives. It incorporates the insights of feminist theory, cultural studies, biomedical research, psychology, theology, and spirituality. By exploring the complexity of suffering in our times, it reflects on how women of faith can come to terms with the enormity, diversity, and, at times, apparent senselessness of human suffering.

    Chapter one introduces the search for meaning in suffering. Chapter two defines the experience of pain and suffering from current and historical perspectives. Chapter three surveys how women within a Christian context have spoken about suffering and how these expressions might be similar to or differ from the ways men theologize about suffering. Chapter four considers how an incorporation of a tragic vision of reality might enhance theological considerations on evil and radical suffering of women. Chapter five focuses on the role of Christian spirituality in responding to the experiences of women’s suffering. The conclusion provides a response to the question, is there a value to suffering for women, and incorporates the poem Rowing by Anne Sexton to convey that response.

    Women and the Value of Suffering contemplates whether women can find value in their suffering-individually and effectively-so that they are empowered to work for change while acknowledging their need for and openness to God’s activating presence in transforming their suffering. Woman and the Value of Suffering shows that through suffering and despite all expectations to the contrary, people can come to an encounter with One who knows our suffering with love, grace, and even joy.

  • 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.
