Amen I Say to You

  Amen  I Say to You

Release: 2007-11-06
Editor: Xlibris Corporation
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Amen, I Say to You includes homilies for Cycles A, B, and C of the liturgical year, and a homily for each Holy Day of Obligation within the Roman Catholic Church. Each homily consist of three main points with supporting examples and illustrations. These are homilies I have preached, and they have been constructed with attention to verbal presentation. Another homilist easily should be able to substitute or include examples from his or her own pastoral or lived experience within the conceptual structure each homily provides. These homilies are not essays; they include no long, convoluted, hard to understand sentences. I try for simplicity of words and sentences, for concrete language everyone can understand. Feedback from posting some of the homilies on the internet has characterized the homilies as well planned, with ideas placed in a logical and precise order. They have been called simple, personal, and practical; very inspired and insightful; containing deep reflection and authentic Christian faith; and illustrative, applied and down to earth practical.

Faith Love and Mercy

Faith  Love  and Mercy

Pages: 248

Available:
Release: 2015-10-15
Editor: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Faith, Love, and Mercy is a selection from the weekly homilies of noted moral theologian and pastor Fr. Richard Roach SJ, who retired from university teaching to lead a small island parish in his last decade. His theologically rigorous yet accessible writing reflects decades-long contemplation on the significance of Catholic identity in our modern era. Combining deep-rooted wisdom with vigorous prose, the homilies prompt the reader's own reflection on what it is to live the faith daily in a distracting and uncomprehending world. Prominent themes include God's merciful love, differences between Catholicism and Protestantism, spiritual temptations in the contemporary culture, the sources of authority, faith and reason, the Real Presence, secular ideologies and anti-Catholicism, humility, redemptive suffering, the true meaning of repentance, perseverance, and providence. Over a long ministry devoted to the Jesuit ideal, Fr. Roach strengthened or awakened the faith of many. It is also hoped that this book--combining theological vision with pastoral concern--occasions serious meditation on one's own journey with God. Recommended as a helpful source for students, scholars, clergy, and laypersons interested in Catholic doctrine, homiletics, and liturgy.

Explanation of the Book:

"This refiguring of Cavell's notion of inheritance is then brought alongside important features of Derrida's deconstruction and the question of its reception in America. By extending Cavell's thought in this manner - through its meeting with Derrida - broader concerns are opened up with regard to both philosophers' work. In Derrida's case, deconstruction - especially its American reception - gets situated in the emerging post-poststructuralist rubrics of film theory, cultural criticism, postcolonialism, and multiculturalism."--Jacket.

Modern Moral Problems

Pages: 330
ISBN: 9781681493404
Available:
Release: 2012-01-01
Editor: Ignatius Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Modern Moral Problems addresses moral quandaries that can beguile and confuse faithful Catholics. Written in a question-and-answer format, the book covers questions regarding sexuality, medical ethics, business practices, civic responsibilities, and the sacramental life of the Church. The extraordinary assortment of issuesforming a single, organized collectionis a valuable reference for anyone seeking clear and concise answers to tough moral questions. Written in a conversational tone often spliced with humor, this work by a highly respected moral theologian will be read with fascination for its clarity of argument and fundamental good sense. Originally published as a monthly question-and-answer column in a magazine for priests, these selections by Msgr. William B. Smith retain a striking current topicality. Msgr. Smith often tackled matters of controversy in the Catholic Church, ones which continue to draw conflicting opinions. Interesting, informative, and eminently practical, this book conveys an overall impression that sound thinking about morality is rooted in a tradition within the Catholic Church, even when the answers to particular moral questions cannot be found in catechisms or Vatican documents. Msgr. Smith offers a clear-headed approach to the quandaries of our time precisely because of his training in traditional moral principles and his fidelity to the Catholic magisterium. This book should be in the possession of all seminarians and priests, who are bound to confront moral matters that are not so easily decided at first glance. But lay people, too, will find here rich responses to the challenging and sometimes unresolved moral questions they encounter in their own lives.
