I have, through this compiled work, Power from the Word: Sunday Homilies for Cycle B, tried to make alive and active Gods Word to us through the liturgical readings for Sundays and Feast Days of the occurring year. The arrangement and methodology flow from those of Cycle AAdvent-Christmas-Lent-Easter-Ordinary Time-Feast Days. Through the homilies, I gave more consideration to what goes around our todays human situations than how it happened when Jesus was walking alongside the streets of Judea and Galilee and working amongst people with different cultural settings. Nevertheless, his teachings and approaches are the indispensable yardstick. And this is what any homilist has to bear in mind, even when this book is considered worthwhile making reference to in preparing homilies for the People of God. Nonetheless, reading through the homilies of this presentation for personal reflection and growth in spiritualityoutside the Sunday liturgyis entirely a different thing. It could be a stitch on time!

Let Go, Let Miracles Happen shows how surrender is more powerful and effective than constant striving or toughing it out at all costs. These are real-life stories of people who have let go of bad relationships, miserable jobs, or addictions. There are stories from people who have thrived in the face of life-threatening illnesses, devastating personal problems, or the loss of loved ones. Each and every one of them inspires and motivates us to live a different way. Let Go, Let Miracles Happen: The Art of Spiritual Surrender leads us to spiritual surrender, a practice that we can effortlessly apply to our own lives. Trying to control the people and events in our lives is an exhausting and fruitless endeavor. Kathy Cordova shares her own story of spiritual surrender, plus those of many others, who have given up the struggle, only to find immense rewards and peace of mind. "Instead of working so hard to find or create magic in our lives, we can relax, go with the flow, work together in harmony with a greater power than ourselves, and experience more joy and purpose than we ever imagined," writes Cordova. "And the formula is simple -- love and surrender." Book jacket.

Daily lessons and meditations on how to detach from other people’s expectations and discover a life of balance and freedom Do you ever feel like you give other people too much power over what you think and feel? Does how your mate or child or employer treat you make or break your day? Do you find yourself feeling immobilized by other people’s expectations and demands? These are the classic indicators of codependence. And the only solution to codependence is detachment. This seeming paradox—embracing (bringing near you) detachment (separation)—holds the key to your inner peace and that of those around you. Through 200 meditations, Karen Casey teaches you how to let go of the illusion that you can control anyone or anything beyond yourself. You’ll learn how to find your own balance point and how to get to it whenever you find yourself tempted to become enmeshed in other people’s problems or to rescue them.

Casey’s latest is an easy reference guide for those seeking recovery or peace." —Publishers Weekly

An unlikely friendship between Colette Lafia and a silent monk at the Abbey of Gethsemani, where Thomas Merton lived, comes to life through seven years of shared letters. Lafia's palpable openness and warm storytelling lead readers through the same compassionate process that led the author to accept herself, find peace with life, and strive for an ever-deepening relationship with God. Folded within the deep friendship cultivated through letters exchanged between Colette Lafia, a spiritual director and retreat leader, and Brother Rene, a Trappist monk, is Lafia's struggle with infertility, insomnia, the loss of her sister, the declining health and eventual death of her father, and her role as caregiver. Brother Rene's compassion and guidance throughout these trials--and Lafia's responses--provide a template for helping readers to surrender to God in their own struggles. Readers will find simple exercises and profound advice for living a more conscious and intentional life, with tips such as, "look at yourself through God's eyes," "notice when fear arrives at your door," and "trust all is well." Readers will ultimately discover a new attitude of acceptance and letting go.

Kim Walker Smith's passionate performance of "How He Loves" helped transform Jesus Culture into a global worship movement. Brave Surrender is the story of how Kim journeyed from a place of shame and fear to stages around the world where she boldly proclaims the unconditional love of God. Through her own story, Kim inspires us to experience true freedom and healing with Jesus. Coming from a painful childhood, Kim struggled to believe that God could heal her heart or bring any sense from her past. Yet when faced with the choice to hand her struggles over to God and receive His love in return, everything began to change. On the other side of surrender, Kim began a journey of looking at one painful memory at a time with God and exchanging her perspective for His truth - a journey in which God rewrote her story of pain into a story of redemption and hope. If you are longing to experience God more than the shame or hurts of your past, the pressures of your present, or the fear of your future, Brave Surrender offers a soul-healing path forward. As Kim learned in her own life, the first step - and the bravest step - is letting go. Once we let go of anything that gets between us and God, we are freed to take hold of the life that truly matters. As Kim writes, "When we encounter God's love, it changes the way we see. And when we learn to see what He sees, we will never be the same again."
