    The Way of the Carmelites: a prayer journey through Lent

And for a life permeated by closeness to him, contemplation becomes the source of action. This beautifully written book, replete with reflections on the Bible, is a spiritual companion and guide for Lent – and the rest of the year – that will introduce readers to the riches of the Carmelite tradition. It also includes questions at the end of each chapter that enable us to follow the profound and practical way of the Carmelites.

    The Wonder of the Beyond

    ,
    by David Adam Over fifty joyous years, David Adam has exercised a rich and profoundly influential ministry. His origins were humble if romantic: his father, an itinerant laborer, and mother, a traveller, had their first momentous encounter at the west end of Loch Ness on a summer’s day in the early 1930’s. They were married within a week. David was born in Alnwick, Northumberland, a few years later, and encouraged from his earliest days to use his eyes to absorb what was around him. He writes: “ I lived in a land of open fields, moorland and beaches: a land of castles, of history, of heroes, saints and story… a radiant world… full of the mystery of existence.” The aim of The Wonder of Beyond is primarily to help us enter David Adam’s own words, ‘ a wonder-filled world’; to open our eyes, ears and hearts to what is about us; to become truly aware of the glory of God in our midst.

    Timeless Simplicity: Creative living in a consumer society

    ,
    This is a book about simplicity - not destitution, not parsimoniousness, not self-denial - but the restoration of wealth in the midst of an affluence in which we are starving the spirit. It is a book about the advantages of living a less cluttered, stressful life than that which many of us are now living in the overcrowded and manic-paced consuming nations. It is a book that has nothing to do with subsistence living on the Lake Isle of Innisfree, but everything to do with having less and enjoying more - enjoying time to do the work you love, enjoying time to spend with your family, enjoying time to pursue creative projects, enjoying time for good eating, enjoying time just to be. Another theme of the book concerns the future of our home, the Earth. Up to the end of the 19th century, the Earth consisted of a world of oceans and land masses teeming with all kinds of life, but our grandchildren will inherit one with less than 20 percent of its original forests still intact, with most of the readily available fresh water already spoken for, with most of the wetlands and reef systems either destroyed or degraded. Sooner or later a more frugal lifestyle will not only be desirable - it will become an imperative.

    Humility Matters: towards purity of heart

    , ,
    Humility Matters makes the claim that humility is for a disciple of Jesus Christ what enlightenment is for a Buddhist, realization for a Hindu, surrender for a Muslim and righteousness for a Jew.  It is the unmistakeable character  of one who has accepted the vocation to undertake the spiritual journey.  it is at the core of our experience of life in Christ. Sr. Meg Funk guides readers deeper into a life of humility by following the movement of what early Christians called the four renunciations; to renounce our former way of life, our thoughts of our former way of life, our self-made thoughts of God and our self-made thoughts of ourselves.  With the help of the compelling examples of St. Benedict, St Teresa of Jesus, and St Therese of Liseux, Sr Meg shows the way to ongoing conversion of  mind, heart and way of life.

    Tools Matter: Beginning the Spiritual Journey

    , ,
    How can we tend the garden of our souls? In Tools Matter, Sr. Meg Funk turns to the wisdom of the desert fathers for the means of removing obstacles to spiritual growth, which include thoughts of food, sex, possessions, anger, dejection, and pride, among other preoccupations. Redirecting thought away from such weeds in the garden of the spirit can lead to a greater awareness of God and purity of prayer.

    Drawing on the writings of the fifth-century monk John Cassian, Funk explores the use of tools as memory, imagination, and rational thinking – tools right out of early Christianity – to work on inner healing. She also explains how other positive tools, such as ceaseless prayer, manual labour, and isolation, may lead to uncluttering the mind and purifying the heart.
