The Church is calling Catholics to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to a world that desperately needs it. Parishes need to reach out to the wider community beyond their walls, and individuals need to become confident witnesses to the transforming love of Jesus Christ.
But what does this evangelizing mission look like for you and your parish? How can you begin? And how is this different from “Church as usual”?
This little book will help you imagine the answers to those questions with practical advice and creative ideas to get you started. Read the list of ideas, pray over them, and check off the ones that inspire you. Use these ideas as a starting point, modifying or developing them as necessary to fit your own mission field: your parish, family, workplace, and neighborhood. Then, go out and do it!

What would it be like to meet Jesus, face to face? To walk with him along the roads and seashores of ancient Palestine…to eat with him, to hear his words, to witness his miracles? For centuries, Christians have sought a more intimate, personal encounter with Jesus through the practice of Ignatian contemplation, also known as imaginative prayer.
In Imagine You Walked with Jesus: A Guide to Ignatian Contemplative Prayer, you’ll learn the method of imaginative prayer proposed by St. Ignatius of Loyola five hundred years ago and practiced by millions of Christians today. Then, you’ll be guided through forty Gospel-based encounters with Jesus, from his birth to his resurrection. With the help of the Holy Spirit, you will have the opportunity to interact with Jesus, just as his first followers did, forging a deeper, more life-giving relationship with the Son of God.

God wants your family to become fully what it was meant to be so that it may share in his mission of love to the world. How special is that?
But it’s difficult to do that if we leave our family path to chance, constantly reacting to circumstances rather than having a plan and a direction in mind. The obvious direction is towards God’s path—but what does that mean for us right here and now?
MISSION: FAMILY will help you answer that question by exploring your family’s identity, vision, mission, and rule of life. Each of the six chapters includes a brief introduction to the topic; a few questions for reflection and discussion, with plenty of writing space for recording your insights and decisions; and a menu of family activities to get everyone in the family engaged and excited about your plan.

The Stations of the Cross for Children was designed especially for younger children, with colorful illustrations and simple text that introduces them to the Passion of Jesus Christ on their level. Each station takes about two minutes to complete, including about thirty seconds of silent prayer. Optional prayers and Scripture references for each station offer a variety of ways to adapt and expand The Stations of the Cross for Children for older kids. The opening and closing prayers place the Passion in the larger context of Jesus’ mission…and every Christian’s call to continue that mission in the world today.
The Stations of the Cross for Children features “The New Way of the Cross” approved by the bishops of the Philippines and used extensively there. It is well suited for younger children who are not yet familiar with the story of Jesus’ Passion. It connects the sacrifice on Calvary to the sacrifice of the Mass, and it places that sacrifice within the larger context of the story of salvation. It also prepares children for the Triduum, which begins with our recollection of the Last Supper on Holy Thursday and ends with the Resurrection at the Easter Vigil. See below for a list of the contents and a free preview.
