Description:
In our Generation the Christian faith finds itself in a much deeper crisis than at any other time in the past. In this situation is no solution to shut our eyes in fear in the face of pressing problems, or to simply pass over them. If faith is to survive this age, then it must be lived, and above all, lived in this age. And this is possible only if a manifestation of faith is shown to have value for our present day, by growing knowledge and fulfillment.”

Pages: 118
Description:
It is precisely in times of vehement historical upheaval, when all the past seems to dissolve and completely new things seem to emerge, that men need to reflect upon history, which enables them to see the unreal exaggeration of the moment in the right perspective and integrates them again into a happening that never repeats itself but, on the other hand, never loses its unity and its context. You might say: "Have we heard correctly; reflection upon history? That means looking back into the past, and we were expecting a glimpse into the future.' You have heard correctly: but I maintain that reflection upon history properly understood, embraces both looking back into the past and, with that as the starting point, reflecting on the possibilities and tasks of the future, which can only become clear if we survey a fairly long stretch of the road and do not naively shut More...

Pages: 152
Description:
In this felicitously unified collection of lectures, pastoral letters and homilies, Cardinal Ratzinger presents aspects of the revealed truth that is central to the Gospel. He writes as a theologian with the heart and experience of a pastor, giving an exposition of faith in the presence of God as divine self-communication in the Church and, supremely, in the Eucharist. With the insight of personal experience he shows how communion with the Son of God brings us into the openness and freedom the spirit craves. This is teaching that elicits from the reader a Yes to Jesus Christ who exists for others. :: Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. Archbishop of Chicago
Title: Gospel, Catechesis, Catechism
Author: Joseph Ratzinger
ISBN: 0898706335
Price: 9.95
Publisher: Ignatius
Publication Date: Sep-97
Format: Paperback
Pages: 101
Description:
Cardinal Ratzinger has produced a small and worthwhile book consisting of short lectures and articles presenting his insight into the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In the preface, he notes with satisfaction that the Catechism has been enthusiastically adopted by the Christian public although some establishment academics hold it askance. In this book, he assists those eager to embrace the Catechism with his accessible commentary on various aspects of the Catechism. In my view, the most significant chapter deals with the "biblical realism" of the Catechism which treats the Jesus of the Gospels as the real Jesus, in contrast to the absurd reconstructions of idle professors who peddle their fictions as the so-called "historical Jesus." He also has a chapter on the relation of Judaism and Christianity which is in welcome contrast to the recent defective and mediocre reflection on the issue by a group associated with the U.S. Bishops' More...

Description:
This is a collection of homilies given by Pope Benedict XVI during 2008, the year of the eucharist. The homilies were given on various occasions and throughout the World, as can be gleaned from a few of his remarks in them. But the message contained in all of them is universal and timeless. His homilies are always a pleasure to read, and an inspiring and uplifting reading material. The theme in all of the homilies contained here is either the eucharist or some other aspect of liturgy. The Pope brings his vast erudition to the table, making frequent and pertinent references to the Scriptures, Tradition, history and scholarly works. And yet, he manages to weave all those references seamlessly into accessible and spiritually uplifting message.

Written over three decades ago, Cardinal Ratzinger's profound treatise on the true menaing of Christian brotherhood is perhaps even more timely and important now as a clear statement on the biblical grounds for cooperation among believing Christians. In treating Christian brotherhood from the perspective of salvation history. Ratzinger opens up the meaning of both the Old and New Testament in this most essential area. After establishing the distinctively Chrsitan sense of brotherhood (vis-a-vis Judaism, Hellenism, Stoicism, the Enlightenment, and Marxism), he shows how fraternal charity can only be perfected through God's fatherhood, Christ's divine sonship, and our brotherhood in Christ.

The momentous third and final volume in the Pope’s international bestselling Jesus of Nazareth series, detailing how the stories of Jesus’ infancy and childhood are as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago. In 2007, Joseph Ratzinger published his first book as Pope Benedict XVI in order “to make known the figure and message of Jesus.” Now, the Pope focuses exclusively on the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life as a child. The root of these stories is the experience of hope found in the birth of Jesus and the affirmations of surrender and service embodied in his parents, Joseph and Mary. This is a story of longing and seeking, as demonstrated by the Magi searching for the redemption offered by the birth of a new king. It is a story of sacrifice and trusting completely in the wisdom of God as seen in the faith of Simeon, the More...

This is the classic work that tells the true story surrounding the miraculous visions of St. Bernadette Soubirous at Lourdes, France in 1858. Werfel, a highly respected anti-Nazi writer from Vienna, became a Jewish refugee who barely escaped death in 1940, and wrote this moving story to fulfill a promise he made to God. While hiding in the little village of Lourdes, Werfel felt the Nazi noose tightening, and realizing that he and his wife might well be caught and executed, he made a promise to God to write about the "song of Bernadette" that he had been inspired by during his clandestine stay in Lourdes. Though Werfel was Jewish, he was so deeply impressed by both Bernadette and the happenings at Lourdes, that his writing has a profound sense of Catholic understanding.
