Fathers, Sons, and the Holy Ghosts of Baseball

Item Description
Fathers, Sons, and the Holy Ghosts of Baseball by Tommy Murray. Time often slows and even stops in the small town of Cottage Park, Iowa. In fact, time is best measured not by the hands of a clock but by the innings of a baseball game. Praying and playing baseball are two of the town's primary activities. Actually, they are one in the same in a town where baseball is a religion. Still, time does eventually flow on. Much like the Des Moines River just outside Cottage Park, time leads to the site of the 1974 Iowa high school baseball tournament. Cottage Park's Holy Trinity High School has never won the Finals. The team's three elderly coaches vow to at last anoint themselves champions before they retire. For the players, the road to the Finals is a confirmation by fire--a rite of passage before they must face adulthood. Fathers, sons, and the holy ghosts of baseball join together in the quest for the Finals. Along this journey, young and old alike ultimately learn you must sacrifice before you can gain and sometimes you must lose before you can win.

On Eagle's Wings: A Journey Through Illness Toward Healing

Item Description
Millions of Christians know Fr. Michael Joncas from his iconic song, On Eagle s Wings, an anthem of hope that has uplifted and inspired people everywhere. Fewer may know that about a decade ago, Fr.

His time of dealing with this infirmity was challenging, frustrating, and, ultimately, a time of great spiritual discernment and growth. This book is the product of that journey from sickness to recovery, offering five key insights to help the reader grow from spiritual darkness to newly appreciated light. Anyone who has experienced chronic illness themselves or has cared for a suffering loved one will find hope and comfort in this book, as well as strategies for coming to grips with our times of powerlessness and overcoming them with trust and confidence in God s goodness.

The Joyful Mystery: Field Notes Toward a Green Thomism

Item Description
by Christopher J. Thompson. "The gift of this beautiful earth is not to be ignored or regretted; instead, this world is the central setting in which the Christian life is to be attentively lived and faithfully pursued. " Regard for creation and its creatures has been a perennial part of Christian spirituality for centuries. In more recent decades it has been the special concern of Catholic social teaching. Yet many Catholics today are unfamiliar with this aspect of Church thought. And until the splendor of creation is recovered, the path to a vibrant Catholic culture seems cut off. The Joyful Mystery seeks to revive the Church's practice of integral ecology and encourages a deeper awareness of the presence of God, the Creator and Lord of the universe. In it, author Christopher Thompson draws from the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas and the "Green Thomism" he inspires in contemporary life. Readers will come away moved by the presence of God manifest in his glorious cosmos and be drawn to integral ecology as a spiritual response.

Image For The Nix

The Nix

Item Description
by Nathan Hill. Former St. Thomas English professor ​Nathan Hill’s debut novel, "The Nix," was named the No. 1 book of the year by Audible and Entertainment Weekly, as well as one of the year’s best books by The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR and many others. It will be published worldwide in 30 languages. Oh, and it has been optioned for TV by J.J. Abrams, with Meryl Streep lined up to star. ... Wait. What? Wow. It’s 2011, and Samuel Andresen-Anderson hasn’t seen his mother, Faye, in decades—not since she abandoned the family when he was a boy. Now she’s reappeared, having committed an absurd crime that electrifies the nightly news and inflames a politically divided country. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high-school sweetheart. Which version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she’s facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel’s help. To save her, Samuel will have to embark on his own journey, uncovering long-buried secrets about the woman he thought he knew, secrets that stretch across generations and have their origin all the way back in Norway, home of the mysterious Nix. As he does so, Samuel will confront not only Faye’s losses but also his own lost love, and will relearn everything he thought he knew about his mother, and himself.
