The Universal Brother: Charles de Foucauld Speaks to Us Today
ISBN-10: 1565486463
ISBN-13: 9781565486461
Publisher: New City Press
Price: AU$32.95
Description: Thirty-five years of following in the footsteps of Charles de Foucauld colour little sister Kathleen's portrayal of the man and his message.

Rather than relying too heavily on Charles de Foucauld's spiritual writings, little sister Kathleen draws on fresh material taken from his correspondence and diaries to set out his legacy for those who live in the deserts of the modern world, reminding us that at the heart of the Christian adventure is friendship with Jesus of Nazareth. Anchoring his spiritual life in the home of Nazareth, Charles discovered that being Jesus's little brother meant becoming a brother to the least and the most forsaken, a universal brother.

Christus Vivit: Christ Lives Post Synodal Apostolic Exhortation to Young People
Author/Artist: POPE FRANCIS
ISBN-10: 1925494381
ISBN-13: 9781925494389
Publisher: St Pauls Publications
Price: AU$9.95
Description: For young people today, trying to find a path to holiness in a hostile world is increasingly difficult. Last year, the Church held a Synod on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment, where Bishops from across the world gathered to discuss this issue. Now Pope Francis shares this Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation in the form a Letter to Young People and to the Entire People of God.

Written to inspire young people in their faith, the Pope writes in an engaging and highly readable way, drawing from young saints and biblical figures, and even the youth of Jesus himself to remind them, and the entire Christian faithful, that their voice must be listened to.

Yet the Pope also has some guidance to offer young people, exploring vocation discernment and encouraging friendship with Jesus. He additionally addresses the Church as a whole, reminding us of the youthfulness the Church should embody, while also considering how to renew youth ministry and emphasising the importance of attracting young people to the Church.

This is an important document to be read by anyone, young people, those involved in youth ministry, and all those who wish to help pave the way to a mission-focused Church that keeps her ears open to the fresh voices and ideas of young people.

For the many people who face seasons of grief, this book is written to help them not only find comfort, but also to grow closer to God, who often seems far off or even absent, in their journey through grief.

The book draws from both personal testimonies and religious texts to give inspiration to the reader. The book also contains practical advice on how to overcome the emotional or practical aspects of grief, and a prayer on each topic. It ends with help in making decisions about what to pass on and what to keep in order to treasure memories.

Grief is a very unique and personal experience. Through this book, readers will be given the confidence to grieve in their own way. Ultimately, they will see grief as a journey that can lead them into a richer spiritual life.
