 Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth

Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth
This creative exploration of Advent guides readers to rediscover the power of the events leading up to the birth of Christ. The four questions of Luke 1, as posed by Zechariah, Mary, Elizabeth, and the people in the Temple, spur readers to personal reflection on disappointment, inadequacy, openness, and trust.
In this fresh, new contemplative Advent companion, Timothy Clayton deftly shows how Luke composed this first chapter of his gospel to deepen understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditation on the questions posed by its main characters can help resolve issues that hinder the joy of Christmas. Designed to be used on a weekly basis through Advent and during the Twelve Days of Christmas, this reflective guide is ideal for individual and small-group use. Clayton's insight is reminiscent of Henri Nouwen or Thomas Merton and brings the story of Christ's birth to life anew.

 

New Catholic Answers Bible - Revised
Here's the whole text of the New American Bible, along with answers to all the most important questions about the Catholic Faith. Why do we believe in the Real Presence? Why do we venerate the saints? How are good works necessary for salvation? The answers are all in the Bible. But until now, finding them has meant juggling books and flipping pages. This is the one book that gives you the complete answers in their Scripture context, with more than 800 references to Scripture and the Catechism.

 Mother Teresa DVD

Mother Teresa DVD
In an acclaimed film portrayal, Olivia Hussey illuminates the life story of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the selfless missionary who brought hope, love and salvation to the poorest of the poor. The movie examines the fundamental moments of Mother Teresa's life from her childhood in Albania in the 1920s to her first calling as a nun, the decision to leave her order and live with the poorest of the poor, the vicissitudes of founding the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity, and her great work of service in Calcutta and the rest of the world.

When the Church was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers Audio CDs
In this engrossing book, Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio brings out the colorful personalities of dynamic Christian leaders from the age of the apostles up to the dawn of the middles ages and makes their rich teaching accessible, enjoyable, and relevant to the challenges we face every day.

The Fathers of the Church succeeded in bringing a pagan society to Christ. If we pay attention to what they taught, we will succeed in doing the same for our own increasingly de-Christianized society.

About Crossroads

D'Ambrosio TwinsWe have assembled on this website Catholic resources to help all Christians unpack the precious gift of the Eucharist. Our resources are delivered via audio, video, written, and electronic formats as well as through live seminars. They are appropriate for individual and group study, adult faith formation, RCIA, home schooling and teen religious education covering as they do the Eucharist, the theology of the body to Catholic Bible Study, the sacrament of confirmation and the Early Church Fathers. There are many wonderful Catholic websites out there. We believe that this site is distinctive both because of a unique collection of resources in our on-line Catholic store, and because the entire site is so user-friendly, with easy navigation, a fast search function, and many PDF files ready to download, print and use as religious education handouts. So browse, enjoy and sign up for our weekly e-mail that links to a punchy, real-life commentary on the Sunday readings plus links to the newest Catholic resources on our site. Visit often!
