How does the Bible form our worship practices? How does liturgy incorporate the Bible?

The Most Important Words of Jesus

Gerhard Lohfink, Translated by Linda M Maloney

Most Important Words

What Jesus taught through his preaching made an unforgettable impression upon his disciples. But it was the many succinctly formulated sayings of Jesus that stood out from the start because of their clear structure and vividness. In The Most Important Words of Jesus, renowned scholar, Gerhard Lohfink, focuses on the power, beauty and the seriousness of these seventy central sayings of the Lord.

When the Church confesses that Jesus is not only truly human but also truly God, that means heis the perfect image of God, God's definitive word. It rests on the majestic claim that revealed itself, modestly, discreetly, and yet clearly, in every one of the seventy "sayings" or logia of Jesus. In this book Lohfink helps us to understand what Jesus is talking about in these sharply defined words.

Between Heaven and Earth

New Explorations of Great Biblical Text

Between Heaven and Earth

In this book New Testament scholar Gerhard Lohfink interprets a spectum of biblical texts, some familiar, others not. He explores them in a spirit of curiosity, questions them insistently and confronts them with the realities of our present day, from COVID-19 to the inner loneliness experienced by so many.

In light of central biblical texts Lohfink asks: What would a life look like today if it were wholly in the world and at the same time wholly in God - sweeping joyously between heaven and earth - aware of the immeasurable breadth of the universe and still ableto marvel at the tiniest flower - knowing the depths of the human heart and being comforted by a child's smile.

In Christ Now Meet Both East and West

On Catholic Eucharistic Action

Thomas O'Loughlin

What does it mean to be a eucharistic community? In Christ Now Meet Both East and West approaches the Eucharist from the perspective of Christianity being a religion of the table - a place where our thanksgiving happens by gathering as a people with Christ. Author Thomas O'Loughlin emphasizes that any renewal of ourselves as a eucharistic people involves discovedring that we are sent from that table to act, to be eucharistic in our communal activity. He explains that this task is not located in an awesome temple or an otherworldly place but in the heart of the everyday. Through this action of blessing, praising, thanking and obeing eucharistic to our heavenly Father, we set about celebrating our faith eucharistically with the risen Jesus present among us.

Eucharistic Adoration after Vatican II

Edward Foley

There were radical changes in the Order of Mass promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1969. Beyond the use of the vernacular, these included a more dialogic format of the Mass, the transformation of the offertory rite to a preparation of gifts, a complete revision of the lectionary, new eucharistic prayers, and communion under both forms.  In Eucharistic Adoration after Vatican II, Edward Foley examines the relationship between Vatican II, liturgical prayer and contemporary eucharistic adoration and devotions.

A World Transfigured

The Mystical Journey

Philip Sheldrake

In A World Transfigured: The Mystical Journey, Philip Sheldrake demonstrates the importance of the mystical dimension of religious belief and practice. Using the words of the great theologian Karl Rahner, Sheldrake makes the case that the Christian of the future will be either a mystic or nothing at all. In our contemporary world, this judgement applies equally to other religions as well.

Thousands and Thousands of Lovers

Sense of Community among the Nuns of Helfta

Anna Harrison

Thousands and Thousands of Lovers examines the spiritual significance of community to the Cistercian nuns of Helfta - a concern that lies at the heart of the monastery's literature. Focusing on a woefully understudied resource and the largest body of female-authored writings in the thirteenth century, thsi book offers insight into the religious preoccupations of a theologically expert and intellectually vibrant cloister to reveal a subtle interplay between communal practice and private piety, other-directed attention and inward-religious impulse. It considers the nuns' attitudes toward community among themselves and with their household members as well as with souls in purgatory and the saits.
