Balaam's Donkey: Random Ruminations for Every Day of the Year

Author/Artist: CASEY MICHAEL
ISBN-10: 0814684637
ISBN-13: 9780814684634
Publisher: Liturgical Press
Price: AU$59.95
Description: Balaam's Donkey is a series of daily reflections based on the homilies preached by Cistercian monk Michael Casey over his fifty years of priesthood. What remained of the original homilies was a large box full of index cards with a few talking points on each. From there, Casey has re-created the homilies and recast them into short reflections, arranged randomly for every day of the year.

The range of topics discussed is broad and the approach taken differs with each reflection, most of them coloured with a touch of Casey's whimsy and good humor.

Girl, Arise!: A Catholic Feminist's Invitation to Live Boldly, Love Your Faith, and Change the World
Category: Books > Spirituality > Spirituality Books
ISBN-10: 1594718938
ISBN-13: 9781594718939
Publisher: Ave Maria Press
Price: AU$29.95
Description: Is it possible to be both a Catholic and a feminist? Claire Swinarski, writer and creator of The Catholic Feminist podcast, believes it is: "I'm a feminist for the same reason I'm bold and honest and sometimes ragey: because Jesus was all of those things."

In Girl, Arise!, Swinarski reconciles the two identities by demonstrating the strength and abilities women have to share with the Body of Christ, the importance of women throughout the history of the faith, and how the love you experience through Christ and the Church can change you and the world around you.

In her book, Swinarski points out that while both "feminism" and "Catholicism" can mean different things to different people, both feminists and Catholics desire to make the world a better, fairer place. And she shows that by treating women with dignity equal to that of men, by calling them his friends and teaching them, Jesus acted as a feminist as well.
