Lord

Lord
Guardini, Romano
$24.99
The only true and unedited telling of the life of Christ--his life and times, in historical context, but not lacking the psychology behind his physical being and spirit. Unlike other books seeking to strip Jesus' story to reveal only the human being, Romano Guardini's The Lord gives the complete story of Jesus Christ--as man, Holy Ghost, and Creator. Pope Benedict XVI lauds Guardini's work as providing a full understanding of the Son of God, away from the prejudice that rationality engenders. Put long-held myths aside and discover the entire truth about God's only begotten Son.

Meditations on the Christ: The Model of All Holiness

Meditations on the Christ: The Model of All Holiness
Guardini, Romano
$14.95

These pages don't tell you what Jesus did -- you know that already! Instead, they take you into the mind and heart of the Son of God in a way you may not have thought possible. You'll come to understand the inner logic of Jesus' ministry: why He did what He did, including puzzling aspects of His life -- ones that may trouble your mind and your faith.

You'll find out why Jesus' life had to take the course it took -- why He couldn't have been the earthly King many were expecting, and why He couldn't have conformed to the conventional ideas of a warrior, a hero, or even just a successful man.

You'll even see why He had to be abandoned by everyone -- including His disciples -- yet His Father remained close to Him then, just as He remains close to you now. Your new insight into why Jesus chose His particular paths then will illuminate the paths He is choosing for you now, for which you'll be filled with gratitude!

Let your newfound knowledge of Jesus blossom into joy as -- directed by these pages -- you open yourself to the One whose whole being will resound in your heart and will nourish your soul.

Seven Gifts of the Spirit of the Liturgy: Centennial Perspectives on Romano Guardini's Landmark Work

Seven Gifts of the Spirit of the Liturgy: Centennial Perspectives on Romano Guardini's Landmark Work
$17.95

In the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, the Second Vatican Council wrote that liturgical reform and renewal must accord with what they called "the spirit of the liturgy." But what did they mean by this "spirit"? In the decades prior to the Council, the Popes spoke of this same spirit. But the most solid source of this term rests upon a book published in 1918, The Spirit of the Liturgy by Roman Guardini.

In his remarkable book, which Pope Benedict XVI claims began the liturgical movement in Germany, Guardini lays out seven core principles of the liturgical spirit, principles that the Second Vatican Council saw as integral to authentic liturgical reform. In this work, eight experts on the liturgy recall Guardini's spiritual insights, explaining how these can deepen our liturgical understanding and practice today. The contributors are Bishop Arthur Serratelli, Fr. Cassian Folsom, O.S.B., Dr. Michon Matthiesen, David Fagerberg, Fr. Daniel Cardó, Bishop James Conley, Fr. Emery de Gaál, and Susan Benofy.

Spirit of the Liturgy: Commemorative Edition (Special)

Spirit of the Liturgy: Commemorative Edition (Special)
Sarah, Robert
$19.95

In honor of its fortieth anniversary (1978-2018), Ignatius Press presents a special Commemorative Edition of one of the most important works written by Joseph Ratzinger, The Spirit of the Liturgy.

This edition includes the earlier classic work with the same title by Servant of God Romano Guardini, a book that helped Ratzinger to "rediscover the liturgy in all its beauty, hidden wealth and time-transcending grandeur, to see it as the animating center of the Church, the very center of Christian life".

Considered by Ratzinger devotees as one of his greatest works, this profound and beautifully written treatment of the liturgy will help readers to deepen their understanding of the"great prayer of the Church". The cardinal discusses fundamental misunderstandings of the Second Vatican Council's intentions for liturgical renewal, especially about the priest's orientation of prayer to the Father, the placement of the tabernacle in churches, and the posture of kneeling.

Other important topics are the essence of worship, the Jewish roots of Christian prayer, the relationship of the liturgy to time and space, sacred art and music, and the active participation of the faithful in the Mass.

Standing Strong: Good Discipline Makes Great Teens

Standing Strong: Good Discipline Makes Great Teens
Guarendi, Ray
$18.95

With wit and wisdom, Dr. Ray Guarendi gives parents the tools they need not only to navigate the teen years but also to enjoy them. Teens are "full of life, enthusiasm, energy, and laughter," Dr. Ray asserts, in defiance of a culture that conditions us to expect a far gloomier reality. Too often, the world tells parents to be content with mediocrity instead of the prospect of raising respectful and responsible children with strong character.

In a lively question-and-answer format, Dr. Ray unpacks issues ranging from sibling relationships and peer pressure to curfews and chores to overcoming backtalk and teaching your kids to avoid drugs. He equips parents to give their teens a safer, more stable adolescence and help them develop virtues for a lifetime. If you feel as if you've been a weak disciplinarian, Dr. Ray explains that "there are . . . critical reasons to reverse your parenting, even if it seems late." He offers practical approaches such as:

  • Four tips to help you enjoy your kids' teen years
  • Three techniques for becoming a calmer parent
  • Five ways to monitor your child's use of technology
  • Four simple house rules that lead to success
  • Four consequences to curb nasty talk
  • A strategy to motivate underachievers
  • You will also learn four key sayings for communicating more effectively with your teens. In addition, you will find out specific ways to cultivate an attitude of gratitude in your kids. Most significantly, you will learn how to help your children treat you with respect, so that they will develop this habit in their relationships with others as well. As you grow in becoming a stronger parent with calm, loving resolve, you will learn how to foster quality time with your teens and have real fun together.

    This book is wise, perceptive, and laugh-out-loud funny. Dr. Ray uses his trademark humor-with-a-dash-of-sarcasm to give those parents who are barely treading water some good, sound, logical advice to change the tone and tenor of their households for the better.
