Prayer: Our Deepest Longing looks at the issues facing people of faith in today’s culture, and offers a way of more effectively dealing with them by seeking out opportunities for prayer. With simple, down-to-earth language, Rolheiser illustrates the importance of prayer and offers techniques on how to pray, using examples from daily life, Scripture, and contemporary writers. He delves into the places that we fear to go with our issues about prayer, encouraging us with gentle kindness and words of hope and inspiration. The book is divided into five sections. 1. Why Pray? Illustrates the purposes and benefits of prayer for ourselves, as well as for the broader Catholic community and even the world. 2. Why Is It so Hard? Notes how our contemporary culture conspires against taking time out for solitude and prayer, and how our own ego—with its fears, restlessness, and narcissism—can work against developing a deeper relationship with God through prayer. 3. What Is Prayer? Outlines the two basic types of prayer, that is, affective (personal) and priestly (for the world). This section also notes the many ways or methods for each type of prayer, such as meditation, contemplation, the divine office, the Mass, and Scripture. 4. Sticking with It When It Gets Hard. This section covers the development of mature prayer, discussing ways to pray in times of boredom, disillusionment, crisis, helplessness, or after a loved one’s death. 5. Mysticism. Here we learn about this increasingly popular form of intimate relationship with God. There will be a leader’s guide for this book, making it an ideal resource for use with prayer groups, small faith communities, and retreats. This is a book for all manner of believer, whether your faith is solidly rooted in Catholicism, wavering between the Christianity of childhood and non-participatory faith as an adult, or just not sure what you believe—or whether you believe at all. It addresses topics that typify our culture, such as narcissism, pragmatism, efficiency, and self-gratification, and that work against a healthy spiritual life. Finally, the book takes us to a place of contact and comfort, in relationship not only with God but with our true selves as well.

Nancy Wiltgen had never really taken the time to deeply contemplate the spiritual world—until the day she was praying the rosary for her daughter and felt God’s presence next to her. In that moment, Nancy embarked on a new path of enlightenment that would eventually lead her to a personal relationship with God and a fresh direction for her life. In her inspirational autobiography, Nancy shares intimate details of her unique spiritual journey, beginning with her childhood as she received her First Holy Communion, accepted teachings from the nuns, and talked to statues of Mary. As she matured and endured many challenges, Nancy reveals how Jesus took a backseat in her life, eventually allowing her connection to prayer to slip away. But after her spiritual experience that day, Nancy learned to read the Bible, encountered Charismatic Catholics, experienced visions, and prayed in tongues. As her life changed drastically, Nancy describes how the Lord’s voice guided her and overshadowed Satan’s evil influence, ultimately teaching her that God is everywhere. In the Garden shares the personal story of how a spiritual seeker grew closer to God by inviting Him into her heart, asking forgiveness for her sins, and accepting His plan for her life.

You know that in an Apostolic Letter in 2002, Pope John Paul II added five Luminous Mysteries. Did you know that in that same Letter he also called for a new way of praying the Rosary? St. John Paul II’s new way of praying the Rosary was based on the teachings of St. Theresa of Avila and has become known as the Contemplative Rosary because it more perfectly unites vocal prayer and meditation, transforming the prayers of the Rosary into a contemplative meeting with God. Did you know about these changes? Have you tried them? In our new book, The Contemplative Rosary, we have not only incorporated the five new Luminous Mysteries, we have included as well the many other changes Pope John Paul made to the Rosary. Here are his additions to the texts and prayers — additions small and large — that, as John Paul intended, unite the Rosary more closely to the official liturgical prayers of the Church as well as to Scripture. Here are also scores of full-color images for your contemplation that anchor your attention in each Mystery and transform your Rosary from a hasty, habitual recitation into a profound speaking to God and a keen listening to Him. Following the wise advice of St. Theresa of Avila and the new method proposed by St. John Paul, you’ll find here for each mystery: • A lovely, full-color classical painting depicting the events in the Mystery, for help in your contemplation • A unique announcement of the Mystery • A statement of the expected fruits of the Mystery • The Scriptural passage you should consider before embarking on your prayers of the Mystery • A call for a moment of silence in order to recollect yourself before entering the presence of God • Each Mystery’s own unique Hail Mary, including within each a John Paul II recommended statement of faith “to pull wandering minds back to Christ and center them in the mystery” • Seven meditations tailored to each Mystery, to accompany your recitation of the Hail Marys (but only employ one at a time) • A concluding short prayer asking God for the fruits specific to that Mystery • Plus much more, so that finally you can begin to pray the Rosary as Saint John Paul wants you to pray it!

Devotion to Saint Anne, the apocryphal mother of the Virgin Mary, reached its height in the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. Until now, Anne's reception history and political symbolism during this period have been primarily discussed through the lens of art history. This is the first study to explore the music that honoured the saint and its connections to some of the most prominent court cultures of western Europe. Michael Alan Anderson examines plainchant and polyphonic music for Saint Anne, in sources both familiar and previously unstudied, to illuminate not only Anne's wide-ranging intercessional capabilities but also the political force of the music devoted to her. Whether viewed as a fertility aide, wise mother, or dynastic protector, she modelled a number of valuable roles that rulers reflected in the music of their devotional programmes to project their noble lineage and prestige.

Love and Responsibility brilliantly sheds light on the mysterious dynamics between men and women and challenges us to live those dynamics better.—From the Introduction The essential background to the Theology of the Body! Father Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) published Love and Responsibility in 1960, the fruit of his pastoral work, particularly among young people. His analysis of the true meaning of human love is life-transforming and practical, shedding light on real issues between men and women. Edward Sri unpacks the contents of this great work, making it accessible to every reader. The author emphasizes the down-to-earth nature of Love and Responsibility, helping readers appropriate practical information on such topics as: how to determine if a relationship is one of authentic love or is doomed to failure the problem of pornography the meaning of friendship how to achieve greater intimacy in marriage and much more. Study questions with each chapter make this a valuable resource not only for individual personal reading but also for small group study.
