We are Called to be Companions of the Cross
The principal insights the Lord seems to be giving to the Companions of the Cross – trusting the Lord, giving him permission to move as he pleases, being available to him, waiting upon him, wisdom, evangelization, all these and more – are vital components, it is felt, of the Lord’s own plan to renew his Church in our day.

You’re Not a Chicken
In His Zone
“I decided I would put myself in a situation of more radical solitude… I would build a raft. I would spend eight days on this raft with only a few basic items. The raft would be on a secluded lake in the woods where I would be sure to not have any human contact… I wanted to see if these principles were as effective as I thought them to be.”

Preaching on Purpose
(By: Fr. Simon Lobo, CC & Fr. Alex Colautti, CC)
The need for strategic preaching that pierces hearts, inspires personal conversion to Jesus, unleashes missionary disciples, and helps the parish to break out of maintenance has never been greater. While part of our growth as preachers only comes through experience, as a Church we can ill afford the time it takes, and the missed opportunities for disciple-making, for each preacher to figure it out from scratch. This book provides a compelling analysis of our post-Christendom context and its implications for preaching the Gospel today. It is also a practical handbook that provides concrete guidance and insights from four experienced preachers so that our preaching might bear the fruit of transformed lives.

Forgiving From the Heart
Have you ever felt upset because God permitted some evil(s) to occur in your life? Did it seem that He did not care for you or help you even when you cried out for His help? Or do you have sins that you just cannot believe God could forgive? You keep living with the guilt of what you did wrong or are continually trying to forget or cover over your sins, convinced that you could never be free from the guilt of what you did. Then there are the offences of others that you would rather just ignore or try to forget.
In this book, you will find some insights for the above situations that, when applied to your life, can bring you to the freedom that the grace of God provides in Christ Jesus. These are so essential for the physical and spiritual well being needed to live the abundant life that Jesus offers and to love others as He loves us.
