Download and read online Born To Serve in PDF and EPUB Have you ever wanted to escape from what seemed like a hopeless accomplishment? Instances in my life added fuel to that kind of thinking and could have devastated me—poor grade-school results, four years of failure in piano lessons, difficulty in memorization, fear of public speaking, and failure to be accepted into a college due to an entrance exam debacle. Consequently, I developed low self-esteem and believed I was worthless and even ugly. Also I wondered what happens after death or if death is the end. If there is life after death, is there a definitive answer? In my youth I became burdened with the horrible thought, I do not want to die! If burdensome thoughts have entered your mind, and you need a positive outlook, read Born to Serve. You might be amazed at the outcome in my life. For anyone searching for the meaning of life, you must read Dennis Fox’s book. He found the secret to happiness by finding a life filled with service to Jesus Christ and exemplified life with a commitment to faith. I am far from a born-again Christian, in fact, I am a conservative Roman Catholic, yet I found joy and purpose in his writing. The only other thing, which is important, he did not convey the completeness with which his late wife gave hugs. When Joy hugged you, you knew you were loved with every cell of your body. A. Mary Walborn, MD with the Cleveland Clinic

Download and read online Homilies from the Heart Stories to Live Love and Serve One Another in PDF and EPUB I met Father George in Orting, Washington at St. Cosmos and Damian Catholic Church. Each Sunday I would listen to his homilies and the stories he told as they related to the sacred scripture reading. His stories always touched my heart. The stories all contained practical tips, advice and suggestions in becoming a better person. He knew life was tough and that we would have problems in this life but his words of love and encouragement always made me feel God’s love and mercy. He knew we were all sinners and unworthy but he always reminded us how much God loves us and how he died for our sins on the cross so we could have eternal life with him. The stories were easy to remember and oftentimes I found myself retelling the stories to friends and family members who were in need of comforting words. I found sharing these stories was also an easy way to tell others about our loving and merciful God.
Download and read online Called to Serve in PDF and EPUB Winner, Conference on the History of Women Religious (CHWR) Distinguished Book Award Winner, 2014 Catholic Book Award in History presented by the Catholic Press Association For many Americans, nuns and sisters are the face of the Catholic Church. Far more visible than priests, Catholic women religious teach at schools, found hospitals, offer food to the poor, and minister to those in need. Their work has shaped the American Catholic Church throughout its history. Yet despite their high profile, a concise history of American Catholic sisters and nuns has yet to be published. In Called to Serve, Margaret M. McGuinness provides the reader with an overview of the history of Catholic women religious in American life, from the colonial period to the present. The early years of religious life in the United States found women religious in immigrant communities and on the frontier, teaching, nursing, and caring for marginalized groups. In the second half of the twentieth century, however, the role of women religious began to change. They have fewer members than ever, and their population is aging rapidly. And the method of their ministry is changing as well: rather than merely feeding and clothing the poor, religious sisters are now working to address the social structures that contribute to poverty, fighting what one nun calls “social sin.” In the face of a changing world and shifting priorities, women religious must also struggle to strike a balance between the responsibilities of their faith and the limitations imposed upon them by their church. Rigorously researched and engagingly written, Called to Serve offers a compelling portrait of Catholic women religious throughout American history. Instructor's Guide
Download and read online A Call to Mercy in PDF and EPUB Published to coincide with Pope Francis's Year of Mercy and the Vatican's canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book of unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith whose influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive, offers Mother Teresa’s profound yet accessible wisdom on how we can show mercy and compassion in our day-to-day lives. For millions of people from all walks of life, Mother Teresa's canonization is providentially taking place during Pope Francis's Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This is entirely fitting since she is seen both inside and outside of the Church as an icon of God's mercy to those in need. Compiled and edited by Brian Kolodiejckuk, M.C., the postulator of Mother Teresa’s cause for sainthood, A Call to Mercy presents deep yet accessible wisdom on how we can show compassion in our everyday lives. In her own words, Mother Teresa discusses such topics as: the need for us to visit the sick and the imprisoned the importance of honoring the dead and informing the ignorant the necessity to bear our burdens patiently and forgive willingly the purpose to feed the poor and pray for all the greatness of creating a “civilization of love” through personal service to others Featuring never before published testimonials by people close to Mother Teresa as well as prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice, A Call to Mercy is not only a lovely keepsake, but a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant and very necessary in the 21st century.
