Searching for and Maintaining Peace by Fr. Jacques Philippe
Led by Meghan Vermillion
Materials Cost: $10
We live in an age characterized by agitation and lack of peace. This tendency manifests itself in our spiritual as well as our secular life. In our search for God and holiness, in our service to our neighbor, a kind of restlessness and anxiety take the place of the confidence and peace which ought to be ours. What must we do to overcome the moments of fear and distress which assail us? How can we learn to place all our confidence in God and abandon ourselves into his loving care? This is what is taught in this simple, yet profound little treatise on peace of head. Taking concrete examples from our everyday life, the author invites us to respond in a Gospel fashion to the upsetting situations we must all confront. Since peace of heart is a pure gift of God, it is something we should seek, pursue and ask him for without cease. This book is here to help us in that pursuit.
Lord, Renew Your Wonders by Damian Stayne
Led by Bryan O’Donnell
Materials Cost: $15
At the beginning of the Second Vatican Council, Blessed Pope John XXIII offered a prayer asking the Holy Spirit to "Renew your wonders in our time, as though for a new Pentecost." The rediscovery of the charismatic gifts by ordinary Catholics throughout the world was an answer to that prayer. Damian Stayne is known internationally for his preaching with healings, signs and wonders as well as training conferences in spiritual gifts. Here he shows readers how the spiritual gifts such as prophecy and healing were used by Jesus, the early Church, the saints—and why we need them operating in the Church today. He provides not only amazing stories of God s presence and work in our time but also a host of practical instructions on how to grow in these gifts. Damian writes as a committed Catholic, but this book is of value to all Christians seeking to "earnestly desire the spiritual gifts" (1 Corinthians 12:1) to build up the Church and lead others to Christ.
The Prayer Course
Led by Brendan O’Rourke
Materials Cost: $5
The Prayer Course could be one of the most significant things you ever do! It’s been designed as a resource for small groups, to help millions of people go deeper in their relationship with God and to unlock the power of prayer in their lives. The aim is that over the course of six sessions, members of your group will get better at talking to God, better at listening to him and they’ll probably start seeing more miracles too. Not a bad use of six weeks.‘Prayer is the essence of the spiritual life, without which all ministry loses its meaning. It is the fulfilment of The Great Commandment ...’ – Henri Nouwen
