Lo scenario descritto da Alessandra Dino lascia un senso di profondo disgusto. Ma al tempo stesso fa amare ancora di più quella Chiesa capace di vivere sino in fondo il suo ruolo 'profetico' e rinnovare le coscienze nel segno della giustizia e dei valori etici e civili. Una Chiesa che sappia parlare chiaro in tutte le occasioni in cui è richiesta una testimonianza coraggiosa, e che non abbia il timore di riconoscere eventuali colpe e omissioni del passato. don Luigi Ciotti Un saggio con un valore esemplare che fa riflettere sui rapporti fra la chiesa e la criminalità organizzata. Alessandra Dino fornisce dettagli: nomi, cognomi, come ha fatto Saviano con Gomorra. È un libro impressionante, esente da fanatismi, che consiglio a tutti. Dacia Maraini

Joyce will help readers achieve a lasting sense of hope, built on their faith in God. Hope is only as strong as its source. This book will help readers avoid misplacing their trust in unreliable things, and help them ground their hope steadfastly in God for limitless joy and possibilities for their lives.

Here at last is a reissue of Kasper's major work with a brilliant new introduction surveying recent developments in Christology. Kasper assesses the Christological enterprise in the Church from the earliest down to the most recent times which can be recommended without hesitation to teacher and serious student. The book also provides a solid theological basis for preaching. Â This may also be described as a work of Christian serenity, but one which is not indifferent to current problems. It is the fruit of the deep peace which all men can gain from contemplation of Jesus the Christ. Â As Karl Rahner has said - this book is 'modern' in the very best sense of the word. Synthesising biblical, philosophical and traditional material, the book remains essential reading for specialists and is used widely for courses on Christology - the very basis of Christian theology itself.

Cercare la verità, favorire l’ascolto, non stancarsi del dialogo, sperare sopra ogni cosa nella pace. In dodici anni da Custode di Terra Santa, e ora da amministratore apostolico del Patriarcato Latino di Gerusalemme, mons. Pierbattista Pizzaballa ha avuto occasione di incontrare migliaia di persone di tutte le fedi. E di offrire anche nei contesti più prestigiosi (università e parlamenti), oltre che in centinaia di incontri e convegni, la sua testimonianza di francescano che crede nella comprensione reciproca e nella costruzione paziente della cultura della pace e dei diritti. E questo nonostante i contesti di conflitto (Israele-Palestina, Siria, Egitto) che ha dovuto a più riprese affrontare. Oggi la sua parola è quanto mai preziosa. Un punto di vista privilegiato e autorevole, forgiato “sul campo”, che non può che scuotere le nostre certezze (e a volte la nostra indolenza) di occidentali, spesso meri spettatori di quanto vivono i nostri fratelli cristiani (e non solo) in Medio Oriente. Un testo prezioso, da un testimone diretto della Terra Santa.

A perfect companion for the Year of Mercy “Do we believe that Jesus can heal us and bring us back from the dead?”—Pope Francis Healing, in a word, is resurrection. “He forgives all your inequities, He heals all your diseases, He redeems your life from the pit, He crowns you with steadfast love and mercy” (Ps 103:3-4). Here retreat master, Ignatian trained spiritual director and author Kathleen Beckman offers a guide for a personal or group healing retreat based on Divine Mercy in Scripture and in the lives of the Saints. Beckman skillfully helps us to see how the “rays of divine mercy” heal families, marriages, the sick, poor, suffering, friends, enemies, laity, clergy, our vocations, doubters, believers, those with diabolical suffering, sinners, saints, the unborn, the elderly, children, the Church and the whole world.

Chiara Petrillo was seated in a wheel chair looking lovingly toward Jesus in the tabernacle. Her husband, Enrico, found the courage to ask her a question that he had been holding back. Thinking of Jesus’s phrase, “my yoke is sweet and my burden is light,” he asked: “Is this yoke, this cross, really sweet, as Jesus said?” A smile came across Chiara’s face. She turned to her husband and said in a weak voice: “Yes, Enrico, it is very sweet.” At 28 years old, Chiara passed away, her body ravaged by cancer. The emotional, physical, and spiritual trials of this young Italian mother are not uncommon. It was her joyful and loving response to each that led one cardinal to call her “a saint for our times.” Chiara entrusted her first baby to the blessed Virgin, but felt as though this child was not hers to keep. Soon, it was revealed her daughter had life-threatening abnormalities. Despite universal pressure to abort, Chiara gave birth to a beautiful girl who died within the hour. A year later, the death of her second child came even more quickly. Yet God was preparing their hearts for more—more sorrow and more grace. While pregnant a third time, Chiara developed a malignant tumor. She refused to jeopardize the life of her unborn son by undergoing treatments during the pregnancy. Chiara waited until after Francesco was safely born, and then began the most intense treatments of radiation and chemotherapy, but it was soon clear that the cancer was terminal. Almost immediately after giving birth to Francesco, Chiara’s tumor became terminal and caused her to lose the use of her right eye. Her body was tested, and so was her soul as she suffered through terrible dark nights. She said “yes” to everything God sent her way, becoming a true child of God. And as her days on earth came to an end, Enrico looked down on his wife and said, “If she is going to be with Someone who loves her more than I, why should I be upset?” Each saint has a special charisma, a particular facet of God that is reflected through her. Chiara’s was to be a witness to joy in the face of great adversity, the kind which makes love overflow despite the sorrow from loss and death.

Benjamin G. Kohl (1938-2010) taught at Vassar College from 1966 till his retirement as Andrew W. Mellon Professor of the Humanities in 2001. His doctoral research at The Johns Hopkins University was directed by Frederic C. Lane, and his principal historical interests focused on northern Italy during the Renaissance, especially on Padua and Venice. His scholarly production includes the volumes Padua under the Carrara, 1318-1405 (1998), and Culture and Politics in Early Renaissance Padua (2001), and the online database The Rulers of Venice, 1332-1524 (2009).

An Exorcist

Following up his international best-selling book, An Exorcist Tells His Story, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the renowned chief exorcist of Rome, expands on some of the key topics of his previous book, covering important details about demonic or occult issues. He uses concrete examples from his own experiences and those of other exorcists to illustrate and substantiate his points. Since satanic sects, occultism, s‚ances, fortune-tellers and astrologers are so widespread today, Father Amorth asks the question why is it so difficult today to find an exorcist, or a priest who is an expert in this field? The example and the teaching of Christ is very clear, as is the tradition of the Church. But today's Catholics are often misinformed. Exorcisms are reserved for appointed priests, while all believers can make prayers of liberation. What is the difference? What norms must be followed? What problems are still open and unresolved in this field? The new book by Father Amorth answers these and many other questions, supporting his discourse with a rich exposition of recent facts. A valuable, practical and instructive manual for priests and lay people, on how to help many who are suffering.
