Dear Mother Dear Father: Letters Home by John Corcoran Wallis 1927-1949
Author/Artist: WALLIS BERNADETTE T
ISBN-10: 0648360172
ISBN-13: 9780648360179
Publisher: Coventry Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$44.95
Description: Born in Victoria, Fr John Wallis (1910-2001), Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Hobart, founded the Australian Religious Order, the Missionary Sisters of Service, in Tasmania, in 1944. The Sisters were to be available to go into the highways and byways; and flexible to meet the pastoral needs of isolated communities throughout Australia.

This series of letters to Johnís parents and family gives us a rare and precious insight into his life as a seminarian and young priest. They also reflect a growing development of his piety and spirituality, where seeds were sown that would develop into his deep concern for people, especially the poor and the marginalised in rural and outback areas of Australia, and for ways to meet their pastoral and social needs.

The letters have been arranged in ten chapters, with a general introduction about that period in Johnís life. Each letter itself has a commentary that contextualises the letter, providing biographical and other details that make the entire series come to life, tracing his experiences, development, misgivings and plans. They anticipate his enthusiasm for the changes that followed the Second Vatican Council and played such a part in his priestly ministry.

Meditations and Devotions
Author/Artist: NEWMAN, JOHN HENRY
ISBN-10: 1640603832
ISBN-13: 9781640603837
Publisher: Paraclete Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$32.99
Description: Newman's Meditations and Devotions was first published in 1893, three years after his death. The great 19th century priest, writer, convert, and cardinal had long wanted to compose a book of devotions that might be used on a calendar basis, but that project never materialized during his lifetime. After his death, his literary executor compiled the meditations and devotions here, all of which were part of Newman's daily spiritual practice.

New to this edition: beautiful original illustrations to accompany Newman's meditations on the Stations of the Cross.

From The Nail to The Key The Fundamental Theology of Pope Francis
Author/Artist: TENACE, MICHELINA (ED)
ISBN-10: 0648230368
ISBN-13: 9780648230366
Publisher: Coventry Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$33.95
Description: On 10th April 2014 the community of the Pontifical Gregorian University was received by the Holy Father Francis in the Paul Vl Hall. 0n that occasion the Pope summarised with a few words the task of theology and the features of a true theologian. According to theology, one should create a true "evangelical" movement which goes from the centre to the peripheries and back (according to the logic of a God who reaches the centre from the peripheries in order to return to the peripheries).

From this image of theology, which is always moving from the centre to peripheries and back, a new figure of a theologian emerges, one who will be more fruitful and effective, the more fully he is animated by his love for Christ and for the Church, and the more the relationship between study and prayer is strengthened and made harmonious.

Here are Nine theologians and their essays have come together to try to answer a fundamental question: Which theology does the Church need?

The Geese Flew Over My Heart: Poems for Prayer and Reflection
Author/Artist: MCCRAVE, LYN
ISBN-10: 1789590175
ISBN-13: 9781789590173
Publisher: Sacristy Press
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$25.95
Description: This haunting and deeply personal collection of poems springs from the search for God in the pain and vulnerability of life, in the beauty of Creation, in the joy and sacredness of relationship and the pathos of loss, and in all the ordinary and challenging aspects of life. Lyn McCrave's poems, although personal, reflect our common longing for meaning in life, and our desire for union, for relationship.

The poems provide a glimpse into the inner heart and sacred space of the writer, revealing in a raw honesty her vulnerability and openness, and the peace that comes from trust and self abandonment. There is compassion and empathy with the suffering of others when sometimes all that can be done is to stand by them. But there is also hope in seeing life beyond this life, an eternal purpose.

Mass Matters: Reflections of a Parish Priest
Author/Artist: BAUSCH, WILLIAM J
ISBN-10: 1940414261
ISBN-13: 9781940414263
Publisher: Clear Faith Publishing
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$32.95
Description: For the next few decades, if not longer, the Church will be trying to recover from the economic and moral costs of the loss of numbers, the critical decline of priests and the global aftermath of the horrendous clergy sexual abuse scandal. The Church will survive but not in the way it previously existed. Those days are over. Clericalism, secrecy, the leadership and credibility of the bishops are all in the gristmill of change. The current crisis, the greatest since the 16th century Protestant Reformation, is forcing the widening of criteria for priesthood, a deeper appreciation of the baptismal gifts of the laity and the reclaiming of the charisms of women. More and more Catholics, determined to reclaim their Church, are rallying for change.

This book offers that change at its source: the Mass and its concomitant imperative of the formation of intentional Catholics. It insists on the need to make our communal source of unity and strength, the liturgy, as clean, focused and empowering as possible because the deep truth is that the people kneeling next to you will be your strongest allies in rebuilding a Church so badly in need of reform. So don't be put off by this book's initial lighthearted focus on the criticisms of the Mass, critiques both sober and cranky, serious and funny, challenging and entertaining. Rather try to be mindful of the subtle subtext that slowly sneaks up on you and ultimately invites you to a new mantra to live by, to reform by: don't leave. Lead.

Baptized and Sent: The Church of Christ on Mission in the World
Author/Artist: CONGREGATION FOR EVANGELIZATION OF PEOPLES
ISBN-10: 8892217860
ISBN-13: 9788892217867
Publisher: St Pauls Publications
Binding: PAPERBACK
Price: AU$45.00
Description: November 30, 2019, will mark the centenary of the promulgation of the Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud, with which Pope Benedict XV wished to give new impetus to the missionary call to proclaim the Gospel. On the occasion of this anniversary, Pope Francis has called for the whole Church to observe an Extraordinary Missionary Month, entrusting leadership of this event to the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples and the Pontifical Mission Societies.

This Guide, which is the result of a wide consultation with the local Churches, is intended to help you prepare and live the Extraordinary Missionary Month of October 2019. It is a gift made up of contributions from Christians all over the world and addressed to Christians all over the world. The texts presented here will serve to inspire the creativity of the local Churches and their Christians in facing the challenges of evangelisation starting from the missio ad gentes and within their own contexts.

The parts of this Guide correspond to the spiritual dimensions indicated by Pope Francis when he called for this Extraordinary Missionary Month: a personal encounter with Jesus Christ alive in the Church, the witness of saints and martyrs of mission, a catechetical formation for mission and missionary charity.

The Temple in Early Christianity: Experiencing the Sacred
Author/Artist: REGEV, EYAL
ISBN-10: 0300197888
ISBN-13: 9780300197884
Publisher: Yale U Press
Binding: HARDBACK
Price: AU$89.00
Description: A comprehensive treatment of the early Christian approaches to the Temple and its role in shaping Jewish and Christian identity.

The first scholarly work to trace the Temple throughout the entire New Testament, this study examines Jewish and Christian attitudes toward the Temple in the first century and provides both Jews and Christians with a better understanding of their respective faiths and how they grow out of this ancient institution. The centrality of the Temple in New Testament writing reveals the author's negotiations with the institutional and symbolic center of Judaism as they worked to form their own religion.

"Far too many scholars still read the New Testament in a way that is shaped by the arguments of generations of Christian writers engaged in anti-Jewish polemic. In these disputations the temple has played a major role. In this must-read book, Eyal Regev shows how the temple played a major positive role in many of the early Christian texts that were eventually canonized as the New Testament." --Adela Yarbro Collins, Yale Divinity School
