Nouwen This booklet features a unique blend of some of the earliest and some of the last published works of Henri J.M. Nouwen, one of the most popular and profound spiritual writers of the past century. Nouwen always insisted on prayer as the basis not only of our relationship with God but also an understanding of ourselves. Over the course of his life, however, prayer and self-understanding were transformed and refined through the crucible of Nouwen���s own spiritual growth and development. This booklet offers a Scripture verse, a meditation from one of the works of Henri Nouwen and a concluding prayer for each day from Ash Wednesday to Easter. Code NW8 $.99 each/1-199 $.79 each/500-999 $.89 each/200-499 $.69 each/1000+ As the disciples walked along the road to Emmaus, the fire in their hearts later reminded them not only of the living presence of Christ, but of their calling to spread the Gospel by their words and their lives. Fr. Robert Barron, professor of systematic theology at the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois, has a gift for getting at the depth of Scripture through everyday experience expressed in plain language. These daily Lenten reflections are drawn from his website, Word On Fire, which provides brief homilies on the Sunday Mass readings throughout the year. (See for more information.) These reflections retain some of the flavor of Fr. Barron���s passionate delivery, though they have been modified for the printed page. We have added brief concluding prayers at the end of each reflection. Code Paper 32 pages 5���" x 8���" $.99 each/1-199 $.89 each/200-499 $.79 each/500-999 $.69 each/1000+ Keeping Watch With Jesus Daily Lenten Prayers Based on the Gospel of Mark By Mark Neilsen Keeping Watch With Jesus uses the Passion according to Mark���s Gospel as the basis for daily prayer during Lent. By spending time with the details of the account of Jesus��� suffering, death and resurrection, we can better appreciate what he has done for us and be moved to respond to the gift of his merciful love. Author Mark Neilsen includes brief reflections and prayers as he follows Jesus on the way from Gethsemane to Calvary and finally to the empty tomb on Easter morning. Code LGM $.99 each/1-199 $.79 each/500-999 One Necessary Thing Lord, Open My Heart With the Word Each Day of Lent Daily Scriptural Reflections for Lent By Gregory S. Jeffrey By Julie Davis Jesus reminds us: ���There is need of only one thing,��� and that is an abiding relationship with him. It is an ideal theme for Lent. Author of Why Enough Is Never Enough: Overcoming Worries About Money���A Catholic Perspective, Gregory Jeffrey helps us confront the presence of sin in our lives so that we can also appreciate the availability of God���s mercy, that mercy made manifest in Christ���s death on the cross for our sakes. Code GJ1 $.99 each/1-199 $.79 each/500-999 $.89 each/200-499 $.69 each/1000+ $.89 each/200-499 $.69 each/1000+ Lent is about restoring our proper perspective toward God. It is a time for sacrifice and selfdenial, a time for prayer and forgiveness, a time for a spring-cleaning of the soul. Julie Davis, author of Happy Catholic (Servant Books) and the blog of the same name, encourages a practical and personal approach to opening our hearts and souls during this Lenten season. These daily scriptural reflections lead the reader to a deeper appreciation of the sacrifice of Jesus and the meaning of our redemption.
