God calls each of us to a life of goodness, and our yearnings to become more like God invite us to lifelong practices of conversion. The sacrament of confirmation is a pivotal moment anchoring a Catholic’s commitment to God. But do our current sacramental preparation programs really inspire candidates to turn toward the Lord? Leonard J. DeLorenzo demonstrates how preparation for Confirmation can be life-giving for both candidates and those who accompany them. Turn to the Lord: Forming Disciples for Lifelong Conversion empowers parents, confirmation sponsors, and all who contribute to the holistic formation of young people to share the goodness of God in ways that shape hearts, minds, hands, and habits.

Turn Around and See the Lord

The book Turn Around and See the Lord takes inspiration from the experience that Mary Magdalene had with Christ Jesus and His angels at the Lord's sepulchre.

The book Turn Around and See the Lord takes inspiration from the experience that Mary Magdalene had with Christ Jesus and His angels at the Lord's sepulchre. The author relates Mary's human frailties to the emotional discomfort, stress, poverty, famine, social mishaps and political servitude that may come upon us. These hardships, she believes, are inflicted upon some believers because of their wickedness, stubbornness, unbelief and lack of simple trust in Jehovah God. She recommends that there is a need for a change or repentance. The author has put together more than twenty renowned biblical characters and her personal-life testimony to address some of the challenges our generation is facing with idol worship and adulterous and obnoxious practices. Rev. Joy Vassal was born in Allison, Manchester-Jamaica West Indies. While she was living in Jamaica she studied at Beaumont College and graduated from Caledonia Educational College Jamaica. When she came to Toronto, Canada, she continued her education, where she matriculated in the Ministerial Affirmation and the Ministerial Internship Programs offered by the Church of God and Lee College (now Lee University) in Cleveland, Tennessee. She obtained an Addiction Social Worker's Diploma at Everest College (formerly CDI College). She is currently attending Tyndale University and Seminary. Joy is a devoted member of the West Toronto New Testament Church of God, where she serves as Missions Representative. Joy is a prolific playwright. Her playwriting skills were exemplified in The Old Man and the New Man drama production that she wrote and produced. It was an educative and insightful episode, which was developed for television in 1999. She also produced two other plays, Gloria Suffering and The King Is Coming. Adding to her writing schedule, she writes for Miles magazine, Canada's first Christian magazine covering current events, issues and testimonials worldwide.

This comprehensive, widely used text by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace. --Publisher's description.

The purpose of this book is to experience and gain revelation concerning the faithfulness of God and the power of his Holy Spirit once we get into the word of God and set time aside with prayer, fasting, with praise and worship. We must understand that God has a purpose and a plan for our lives, but in order to know what that is, we must get to know him and allow the worries of our lives to be turned over to God and allow the Holy Spirit to come in and comfort us, and the blood of Jesus to cleanse us from our sins. . This book allows us to know that we are in a time where we are crying out to God concerning our health, wealth and relationships these areas of our life is being attacked by the enemy, and sometimes it may seem as if God is not responding to our cries. The Holy Spirit is a part of our lives and he is there to intercede for us when we do not know what to say concerning our live issues. Praying in our heavenly language daily and meditating on the word of God is a way that God can and will answer us when we call upon him. When we are feeling left alone with sickness and disease plaguing our body, and there seems to be no relief in sight for us. God is our relief and the answer to the sickness and disease, health, wealth, and relationship issues that we face, through the blood of Jesus. We must spend time in the word of God in order to build up our knowledge of Jesus and his promises to those that believe in him. The word of God will give us revelation concerning what is required in order for us to be healed, delivered, and to be set free from sins and all other issues that are affecting our lives, family, and health. Jesus promised us that greater works we should do. In order for us to know our inheritance through the blood of Jesus and obtain results we must know and have a relationship with the Holy Spirit which means speaking in our heavenly language at all times. Jesus loves us and his promises are sure, tap into the realm of the supernatural through prayer in the Holy Spirit.

LORD JESUS, I WANT TO SEE... Watch the news, and you can see the world desperately needs moral guidance. With political correctness ruling the day, moral character and positive personal attributes have taken a back seat to appearance, charm, glamor, fame, social status, and possessions. Unfortunately, children no longer memorize Traditional Prayers. But spending time with God is one of the most important things a Christian can do. This Weekly Prayer Book helps children and families begin the week on the right note. Each of the 52 devotions includes a Scripture, a discussion, and a promise related to a specific attribute such as friendship, faith, love, generosity, forgiveness, and thankfulness. By spending time discussing Scripture, we can encourage children to embrace and reflect Christian virtues for their well-being and happiness. Having seen the needs of God’s children and their families during twenty years of service to parishes and ten years in seminary, Rev. Peter G. Vu has designed this devotional rooted in Holy Scriptures, daily topics, personal experiences, character-building, and spiritual exercises. Each weekly entry is self-reflecting, easy to read, and helps children grasp Christian qualities while spending time with Jesus. Rev. Vu hopes that our Lord Jesus will heal our spiritual blindness and help us see our lives with a better vision. May we also grow closer to Him and acquire wonderful personal qualities each day as we work to become better Christians in our challenging world. A portion of the proceeds from book sales will benefit the American Red Cross and the Catholic Relief Services, in addition to other charities.
