An Adventure of Hope
“An Adventure of Hope” is the story of the diffusion of a Charism based on two spiritualities: Franciscan Spirituality and the Spirituality of Unity. Fazenda da Esperanca, in fact, is spread in many countries.
It involves many families taken cared of by many persons who have left everything behind to dedicate their lives to the rehabilitation of young people who have lost meaning in their lives. They look for answers in vices of any kind, in isolation from society, and in violence.
They have discovered a Charism, a Spirituality and a Community, called to be Hope in the world.
Like each tile in the art of stained glass windows, this experience shows that each cross has a meaning; if it is embraced, it brings light and new life.
At the Junction of Two Seas₱150.00
Rediscovering Islam with an integral historical perspective. an urgency of our times to put in context and neutralize potentially polarizing effects of terrorism and war – is a task done quite well by Thomas Michel. He is an American Jesuit who has lived in Muslim countries for thirty years.
The title of his handbook. being a foundational tool for that dialogue. comes from the Quran 18, 60, a verse which signifies. according to an interpretation (editor Bausani. p.55). an encounter between two seas of wisdom. The first five chapters offer a clear and essential presentation of Islam and its prophet. The sixth deals with Islamic awakening and the so-called fundamentalism. The last chapter takes a look at the possibilities and problems in a dialogue of liberation with Muslims.

A guide to living a spirituality of communion
by: Fr. Tom Ess, OFM, Terry Gunn, Emilie Christy, Clare Zanzucchi (compiled)
“Called to be Community” offers a concrete model of evangelization emanating from a proven spirituality of communion. It aims to bring people together for renewal in the word of God and to lay claim to the communal dimension of Christian life.
This guide to living a spirituality of communion is best used in small groups of 10 – 15 people who meet once or twice a month in a home or parish setting. It covers 12 points of a spirituality of communion that aids the participants in integrating the Gospel into their daily lives and forming the kind of “living parish communities” that were envisioned by the Second Vatican Council.

Charles One of Us₱150.00
When a young life is tragically snuffed out of age 17, friends cannot but mourn the loss of someone who has gone too early. But when that life – no matter how short – has been lived to the full, it becomes an undying beacon for others.
this was the life of Charles Derrick Moats, an Afro-American who lived in Chicago’s black ghettos at a time when discrimination against blacks was at its worst. The ghetto he lived in was the very image of violence, hatred and despair. In that context, Charles still dared to dream of a world that was more just, where people loved one another, in spite of their differences. Together with a group of friends, including some ethnic whites, he bore witness to an ideal of a united world, an ideal that was to be achieved through a revolution of love. He lived – and died – for this ideal.
Charles’ story has inspired the production of a musical by the international performing arts group Gen Ross. Through Gen Rosso’s Streetlight – The Musical, Charles continues to live, to spread the ideals that the gave his life for, and to light the way for young and old alike.
Chiara Luce, a girl full of vitality, but, suddenly, she fell gravely ill. And, strangely, moment by moment, a new life of light began to unfold for her. She was eighteen when she died, yet she had lived to the full.
A collection from among the numerous publications of Chiara Lubich
Edited by + Brendan Leahy and Hubertus Blaumeiser
“Our life has meaning only in the Church, only within the Church (…). ‘That they may all be one’ (Jn 17: 21) was entrusted by Jesus to the Church (…) and our charism serves to reinforce this characteristic of the Church. Therefore, we need to journey through life with our soul in total unison with the Church.”
Chiara Lubich, Malta, 1999
Chiara Lubich’s writings on the Church collected in this volume help us to reflect on an experience of Church that speaks of vitality and dynamic relationships. Her approach is clearly ‘charismatic’, both in terms of the role attributed to the Holy Spirit in the lives of all believers, and in terms of those particular gifts, called ‘charisms’, that God has distributed to the Church throughout the course of the centuries, always in response to the specific needs of each era.

Dawn of the Word in Silence
Dawn of the Word in Silence retraces the mission of the Marist Brothers in China. In line with the vision of their founder Marcellin Champagnat, the first Brothers who made imprints on the soul (and the soul_ of the Chinese in 1981, went “to make Jesus known and loved.” With the special heart that the Marist Brothers had for children forsaken in tragic depths of human and spiritual poverty, the mission in China was an interplay of challenges, and triumphs. Set against the backdrop of China’s tumultous political situation, the Marist Brothers not only rolled up their sleeves to work; they also shed both their tears and blood. Their fidelity accentuates the incalculable value of the Gospel, which they were ready to live and die for.
Education’s Highest aim
The crisis that market societies are undergoing is essentially a crisis of relationships. It originates in the illusion that the market through the actions of an “invisible hand” operating in impersonal market relationships can present us a good coomon life exempt from the possibility of being wounded by the other. Luigino Bruni offers an authoritative look ath the premises underlying contemporary market economies and their premises. He points out the need for balancing the increasing tendency toward isolation with the human need for relationships and he proposes a means of maximizing the benefits of the market without losing the joy that comes from putting the relationship with the others in the market as the primary good.
Going to God Together₱170.00
Throughout the world, we find traces of an insatiable thirst to bow down spiritually before the Mystery that surrounds life. We see it in a Buddhist temple and in a mosque, in a Passover celebration and a Hindu Diwali festival. A mysterious sense of the Absolute, the transcendent, urges us to reach out beyond all that is around us, excavate deep within us, and, above all — with the whole of our being — make some form of declaration that we want to be in harmony with God, with others and within ourselves.
Christians believe the Mystery has not remained nameless but has opened up to us in history and, above all, in the person of Jesus Christ. We see the face of God in Jesus, in whom we live and move and have our being. He is the Way who wants to be the Wayfarer among us.
