Description:
"Jesus did not eliminate human suffering: He came to suffer together with us." With these words Fr. Vincent Nagle introduces his readers to his work in the hospital where he has served for years as chaplain. Trite phrases just don't cut it when families are confronted by the mystery of suffering. "When I go into a hospital room, I go in with a broken heart, willing to share this adventure with these patients whose very selves are broken apart by illness. I don't want to give them false comfort, but real hope." Brief and intense fragments of hospital life are alternated with the fascinating story of Fr. Vincent's own journey to faith and the priesthood. "When I understood that in order to be truly alive I needed to return to the faith, my condition was that God not let me be separated from the difficulties of life." And God took More...

Description:
HAB is happy to re-propose after many years Paul Claudel's play The Tidings Brought to Mary, a play in a translation by Louise Morgan Sill. A significant introduction by Luigi Giussani, founder of the Catholic lay ecclesial movement of Communion and Liberation, helps the reader to be drawn more deeply into the drama of the play and to find described there the drama which faces each of us. Pope Benedict XVI once made the point that world history is a struggle between two kinds of love: "self-love to the point of hatred for God, and love of God to the point of self-renunciation. This second love brings the redemption of the world and the self." This is the claim, the proposal of the play The Tidings Brought to Mary. After nearly a hundred years, as we watch this Infinite Love generate the play's heroic characters, we find ourselves begging in More...

Pages: 134
Description:
A blueprint for reform in the Catholic Church. The author draws on twenty-five years at the head of a young missionary order which he founded, and proposes a road forward out of the quagmire the Catholic Church and its priests find themselves in today. "Will there still be priests in the Church's future? Has not the time come for us to humbly inquire into the direction change should take?" So writes Mons. Massimo Camisasca. He dedicates nearly half of his book to silence, prayer, liturgy, and the Mass, and then moves on to discuss several commonly underdeveloped themes (study, fatherhood, common life, and friendship). He closes with three chapters on hot-button issues (virginity, women, mission) which he treats on the basis of the preceding reflections. With a preface by Mons. Brugues, secretary of the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education.

Description:
The Teachers Will Save U.S. is an inspiration for American teachers. “The economic crisis and the tumultuous international climate have propelled teachers into the forefront, making them indispensable in the struggle to save our children and our nation. In their hands rests the American dream, economic progress, social stability, and world peace.”According to Dr. Rodelgo, we are living a crisis that is much more than just economic, political, or social; it is a human crisis. Therefore, educators have a crucial role because it is through education that we can address the crisis. Many school leaders would like to implement an education that can respond effectively to the challenges of the twenty-first century. However, it is difficult to know how to do so. The issue at hand is finding the appropriate method of education. In this country, many educational reforms have been implemented in the last hundred years, but these reforms More...

Format: Paperback
Pages: 120
Description:
There is a long and sacred history of venerating the holy images of our Lord, Jesus Christ. At Christmas time, we in- cense the Holy Infant in the manger and re- call his humility and love. During Lent we walk with devotion through the Stations of the Cross, tracing the steps that lead to our salvation. And on Easter morning we stand before the empty tomb, filled with awe in the presence of the Angels at the wondrous works that God has done. Images of Christ have the power to move our hearts, they can catechize without words and allow us to contemplate the beautiful face of God revealed in His own Son. - Cardinal Sean O'Malley, From the Introduction

Publication Date: September 1, 2015
Format: Paperback
Description:
Among the sixteen books written by the gifted Capuchin priest Ignacio Larran aga (1928-2013), The Silence of Mary is the best sold, printed in forty editions and twelve languages. The personality and history of the mother of Jesus has been reconstructed by means of a penetrating analysis based solidly on the canonical Scriptures without appealing to traditions or apocryphal writings. Although Catholic in its orthodoxy, Larran aga's description is valid for Christians of all denominations, which makes this book a sound basis for ecumenical dialog. Born and ordained a priest in Spain, the Capuchins sent him to the province of the Order of Capuchin Friars Minor in Chile at the age of thirty-one. In his eagerness for all to get a deep God experience, he traveled to many countries giving conferences and organizing courses and workshops. The Prayer and Life Workshops, which he founded, met with great success in the United More...
