When one reaches the highest degree of human maturity, one has only one question left: How can I be helpful?—TERESA OF ÁVILA Beloved author Ronald Rolheiser continues his search for an accessible and penetrating Christian spirituality in this highly anticipated follow-up to the contemporary classic, The Holy Longing. With his trademark acuity, wit, and thoughtfulness, Rolheiser shows how identifying and embracing discipleship will lead to new heights of spiritual awareness and maturity. In this new book, Rolheiser takes us on a journey through the dark night of the senses and of the spirit. Here, we experience the full gamut of human life, pleasure and fervor, disillusionment and boredom. But, as Rolheiser explains, when we embrace the struggle and yearning to know God we can experience too a profound re-understanding to our daily lives. “What lies beyond the essentials, the basics?” Rolheiser writes. “Where do we go once some of the basic questions in our lives have been answered, or at least brought to enough peace that our focus can shift away from ourselves to others? Where do we go once the basic questions in our lives are no longer the restless questions of youthful insecurity and loneliness? Who am I? Who loves me? How will my life turn out? Where do we go once the basic question in life becomes: How can I give my life away more purely, and more meaningfully? How do I live beyond my own heartaches, headaches, and obsessions so as to help make other peoples’ lives more meaningful? The intent of this book is to try to address exactly those questions: How can we live less self- centered, more mature lives? What constitutes deep maturity and how do we reach that place? And, not unimportantly, what constitutes a more adult, Christian discipleship? What constitutes a truly mature following of Jesus?” As the poet Rainer Maria Rilke suggests, “Live the questions now.” In Sacred Fire, Rolheiser’s deeply affecting prose urges us on in pursuit of the

Why don’t more Métis people go to traditional ceremonies? How does going to ceremonies impact Métis identity? In Rekindling the Sacred Fire, Chantal Fiola investigates the relationship between Red River Métis ancestry, Anishinaabe spirituality, and identity, bringing into focus the ongoing historical impacts of colonization upon Métis relationships with spirituality on the Canadian prairies. Using a methodology rooted in an Indigenous world view, Fiola interviews eighteen people with Métis ancestry, or an historic familial connection to the Red River Métis, who participate in Anishinaabe ceremonies, sharing stories about family history, self-identification, and their relationships with Aboriginal and Eurocanadian cultures and spiritualities.

Sacred Fire: Torah from the Years of Fury (1939-1942) consists of commentaries on each weekly Torah portion. It also includes a number of lengthy sermons delivered on the major Jewish Festivals as well as a few discourses alluding to people loved and lost. Because writing is not permitted on the Sabbath, these "words of Torah" were transcribed from memory, after the Sabbath or festival had ended. Although the pages of Sacred Fire are not stained with the names of its author's tormentors, there are numerous references to historical events through which parallels can be drawn. Rabbi Shapira often refers, for example, to the binding of Isaac and the martyrdom of Rabbi Akiba. Sacred Fire forms a religious, spiritual response to the Holocaust that speaks from the heart of the darkness. In doing so, it may well form the basis for what could one day become Judaism's formal liturgical response to the events that occurred during those years of fury.

Ronald Rolheiser makes sense of what is frequently a misunderstood word: spirituality. In posing the question "What is spirituality?" Father Rolheiser gets quickly to the heart of common difficulties with the subject, and shows through compelling anecdotes and personal examples how to channel that restlessness, that deep desire, into a healthy spirituality. This book is for those searching to understand what Christian spirituality means and how to apply it to their own lives. Rolheiser explains the nonnegotiables--the importance of community worship, the imperatives surrounding social action, the centrality of the Incarnation, the sustenance of the spiritual life--and how spirituality necessarily impacts every aspect of human experience. At the core of this readable, deeply revealing book is an explanation of God and the Church in a world that more often than not doubts the credibility of both.

The Sacred Fire thrusts the reader into a spiritual showdown that pits Christian Chris Belanger against a mysterious man simply calling himself Richard. But Richard is not as benign as he appears, as he begins to spin tales from the Holy Bible from a firsthand account, claiming to have witnessed them with his very own eyes. Chris is soon sent careening down a spiral of doubt, fear, and hopelessness that seems impossible to escape, even with his deeply held faith. Is there anything in the physical or spiritual world that will rescue him from an eternity of hopelessness?

There's a sacred and hidden path inside each one of us, a path of mysteries and amazing manifestations, where nothing is impossible, not even our wildest spiritual creations. This is the realm of impossibilities, where imagination is carried away by a spiritual insight, which is here referred as the phoenix. The allegory inside this book takes us to a subconscious realm, that can lead us to the most uplifting and unknown side of ourselves, but also to other realities as well, namely, the ones that are parallel to ours, and also other dimensions and galaxies. It is with this allegory of the phoenix that we understand the role of the dragons and serpents of our planet, and how they interfere in the Tao of our existence. As a dance of forces, vibrations of different natures, these symbols and concepts take us to the deepest truth within, of who we are and how far can we go. This is a book about the adventures of our soul, the journey within that so many Shamans live to explore. It's also about a path that all spiritualists and gurus have experienced, a path that some have called nirvana, enlightenment or awaking, but few have ever had the ability to fully describe in a way that can be perceived by the common mortal. The Native Americans have often told us about the spirit of the eagle that keeps guard over the spiritual world. This eagle, or big bird, is representative of another living force, which is the phoenix, the bird of fire. This is why many mystics of ancient times believed that only fire could take souls to another world. The fire purifies the body, but the most potent fire comes from within, as an energy that we burn with our conscious awareness. This is the fire that Buddhists, Taoists and Hindus persist in awakening from within, commonly using disciplines created specifically for this purpose, such as yoga, chikung and meditation. This fire represents the power of our own spirituality, which most people are unaware to possess. As mortals and genetically ma

Sacred Bundles Unborn acknowledges the voices of women who have come forward and recognizes that coerced forced sterilization is happening, while establishing a narrative on this critical issue as it is currently playing out in 2021, while educating people of the dark reality of Canada’s negligence of the human rights of Indigenous women and women of color, whom are at a greater risk within the health system in their most vulnerable state during pregnancy. Each piece takes a unique approach to the many overlapping aspects informing this issue from the individual writer’s perspective, yet there is a thread of synergy between each piece. All are written in an accessible way as each author has eloquently and effectively spoken to the “unspoken” with integrity and grace, granting the reader as much ease as any human being can conceive in order to process this form of inhumane torture. All submissions are in the first person, whether a poem or narrative prose, in lay (non-academic) terms. “The goal of our collective, first and foremost, is the documentation of this ongoing genocide, from our perspective, in order to bring to the forefront of readers’ consciousness this archaic and barbaric atrocity that continues and is not “criminalized” in Canada.” Morningstar Mercredi

When Vanessa Ochs begins to suspect her various physical ailments are due to her leading an ?unsanctified life,? she decides to travel to Jerusalem with her family to explore the sacred books of Judaism. Armed with a list of institutions and the names of women who specialize in teaching these sacred texts, Ochs sets out on a journey of discovery. She forges a personal relationship with her mentors, women who are determined to disprove the claim of Rabbi Eliezer ben Hyrcanus: ?The words of the Torah should be burnt rather than taught to women.? As her year in Jerusalem draws to a close, Ochs begins to find a way to reconcile her feminist views with her quest to live a life according to laws shaped by the ?sexist? views of traditional Judaism.Part scholarly investigation, part anecdotal memoir, Words on Fire is an accessible portrait of a remote world and a fascinating, firsthand account of the clash between feminism and Judaism.
