Saint John Fisher: Bishop and Theologian in Reformation and Controversy by Archbishop Vincent Nichols

Archbishop Nichols: “Studying the life of St John Fisher had a profound and lasting effect on me. He is such an outstanding witness of faithfulness and courage ad was prepared to pay the ultimate price for his faith. His teaching on prayer, on priesthood, his love of the scriptures, his appreciation of the importance of parish life and of service to the poor, speak very clearly to us today.”.

 



Take & Read: The Acts of The Apostles by Henry Wansbrough

Take and Read: The Gospels’ was welcomed by many thousands of individuals drawn to read and pray the Scriptures. The format is ideal for introducing people to the depth of the text. The presentation of each passage is enriched by excerpts from the Fathers, and the teaching of the Church, and by paintings and photos which lead into deeper reflection and prayer.

‘Take and Read: The Acts of the Apostles‘ invites the reader to consider the early history of the Church and the outreach of the gospel ‘from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria and to the ends of the earth’. It is the story of the Holy Spirit guiding the Church from the beginning in the work of the gospel, which continues into our own time.

 



Treasures of Dei Verbum by John M Redford

Dei Verbum (The Word of God) on Divine Revelation was, together with the other Dogmatic Constitution, Lumen Gentium (Light of the Nations) on the Church, the most important document of the Second Vatican Council.

This is an easy-to-follow commentary on Dei Verbum paragraph by paragraph by Canon John Redford, who has lectured and written on the subject of divine revelation to hundreds of future priests and to lay people since a few years after Dei Verbum was promulgated in 1965.

The Death of a Child edited by Peter Stanford

The Death of a Child is a collection of a dozen essays in which parents and siblings tell their own stories of losing a child, brother or sister, and of how they have coped with bereavement and grief.

The essays reflect the different causes of bereavement- illness, accident and malice. And the collection ends with a reflection by the celebrated psychotherapist Dorothy Rowe.

EXCLUSIVELY from ALIVE PUBLISHING in collaboration with L’OSSERVATORE ROMANO.

L’OSSERVATORE ROMANO, the newspaper of the Holy See, has prepared a special souvenir magazine dedicated to Karol Wojtyla, who took the name John Paul II during his Pontificate from 1978 to 2005.

The special edition pays homage to an exemplary Christian and one of the great Bishops of Rome, who the Church will formally recognise as a model of holiness during the Beatification ceremony on 1 May, presided at by his Successor, Benedict XVI.

The diverse facets of John Paul II’s personality emerge through his own writings and homilies, as well as through the articles, interviews, testimonies and many rare photographs carefully selected from the archives of L’Osservatore Romano.

    Luke 12:13-21 The Torah laid down the rule that an elder son should receive double the inheritance of a younger one (see Deut. 21:17). Not surprisingly this led to all manner of disputes, which were typically taken to the rabbi to be sorted out. All we know about the man who asks Jesus for help […]
