1001 reason why it's great to be cahtolicHaddad, Robert MChristianity- roman CatholicismYears ago I saw a news report about the growth of Pentecostalism in Latin America. One fiery pastor had a pamphlet at the back of his church entitled, 'Twenty-five reasons why you are no longer Catholic.' I became upset when I saw this and wanted to produce my own response. Naturally, I wanted this response to be both comprehensive and overwhelming hence the thought of collecting and publishing 1001 reasons why it s great to be Catholic! More than most, non-Catholics should find this book of great interest.ebook alsoIn 9781942611127 p215 2015
22 steps to a great catholic parishReinhardt, James NParishes- Admin- Pastoral theologyFor most Catholics, the parish is the church. It is the place where they encounter Jesus and embrace his gospel way of life. It is the place where they find others who share that desire and that experience and collectively celebrate the reality of Christ in their lives. It is the place where they hear God s Word and break bread together in the Eucharist. <P> In these pages parish leaders (and parishioners) will find practical, tangible, and specific plans for transforming their parish into a place where all this can happen and more. <P> Each of these twenty-two chapters offers a practical and do-able plan for a particular area of parish life,not in library of congress terrific book for pastorInp272
Arise (A christian Psychology of Love)Chester, michael p & Norrisey, Marie cLove- religious apects Psychology christianThe thesis of this book is that the key to a successful, happy life is the fullest possible development of our unlimited potential for love. Much of our energy for love often remains untapped. What is worse, sometimes this same human energy is misdirected and becomes an instrument of hatred, violence, and war. How we can actualize our capabilities for love and how we can extend this energy in a positive direction are delineated. This book shows the value and need for Christians to make full use of the psychological tools which scientific research has given to our generation.InBV4639 p158 1981
Beautiful MercyPope Francis misc 7 plus authorsCatholic - Doctrine MercyThis was another worthwhile book to read. The primary take away for me was to give mercy I need to first receive mercy. To doubt Gods mercy for me is to sin. He not only forgives, he forgets. I need to let go of my own past repented sins and rely on Gods mercy. Also;
Forgiveness is not saying "no problem"
Forgiveness is not saying "there's nothing to forgive"
Forgiveness is not forgetting
Forgiveness does not mean you trust the other person or that the relationship is restored
Most importantly, forgiveness is not an event but rather a process

Dancing standing stillRohr, Richardcomtemplation Offers a critique of religion as a system that often creates an alternative pious world without really challenging oppression, materialism, and sectarianism in our modern world.

Falling upward (spirituality for the two halves of life)Rohr, Richardspiritual formation, Religion Spirituality"A fresh way of thinking about spirituality that grows throughout life. In Falling Upward, Fr. Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that those who have fallen, failed, or "gone down" are the only ones who understand "up." Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite.? What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward."? In fact, it is not a loss but somehow actually a gain, as we have all seen with elders who?have come to their fullness.?? Explains why the second half of life can and should be full of spiritual richness Offers a new view of how spiritual growth happens loss is gain Richard Rohr is a regular contributing writer for Sojourners and Tikkun magazines This important book explores the counterintuitive message that we grow spiritually much more by doing wrong than by doing right."-- Provided by "Naked Now"InBV4511 .R205 2011scared heart

This is a small (~100 pages) book consisting of JP II's own reflections on being a priest and bishop; thoughts and comments about where he came from, what influenced him, and his different charisms.

The book does not really discuss the topics that were discussed or any of the changes that were made, other than superficially referring to them at various points. This book is definitely well suited for someone who is trying to examine the reasons behind the diverging points of view of the council, rather than what those points of view areBX830 p199 2012
Your God is too BoringLeonetti,jonChristian life, Faith RevelationI received a copy of "Your God is Too Boring" by Jon Leonetti as part of a Christmas present. After I read the back of the book, I became deeply intrigued by the contents therein. Then I read the section entitled "So There I Was" and was tickled to realize this book dealt with issues other members of my church and I had discussed in the past, especially related to evangelizing and misconceptions regarding our faith. I like the easy-going nature of the author's writing and his engaging, often amusing, writing style.not in Library of Congress, available on KindleIn 927168243 p 154 2014
