Item description for A Mother's Plea: Lifting the Veil in Sanctuary by Anthony Bus...

Overview
Beyond the Veil... In the lonely walk through spiritual dryness when God seems so distant, a woman's voice is heard in the deep recesses of the soul of a struggling priest. She prods him to discover God and the meaning and purpose of life in the sacred silence of sanctuary. From that space in sanctuary, the veil is lifted to the ongoing drama of a mission that would ensure the reconciliation and peace of her children. In A Mother's Plea, the pastor of a diverse parish in the inner city of Chicago recounts his journey to fulfill a call in the face of spiritual trials and elusive triumphs. Father Anthony Bus details how faith and trustful surrender sustain the hope that waits for what is unseen. This book is a must read for those on their own path to an authentic spiritual awakening. The initial publication became a religious bestseller in 2005 - with sales now crossing over the ocean to Ireland, India, Sri Lanka and to several countries in Africa. This revised edition brings a dramatic finale to the story that forms A Mother's Plea, promising hope to a world still so new to the third millennium.

Beyond the Veil In the lonely walk through spiritual dryness when God seems so distant, a woman?'s voice is heard in the deep recesses of the soul of a struggling priest. She prods him to discover God and the meaning and purpose of life in the sacred silence of sanctuary. From that space in sanctuary, the veil is lifted to the ongoing drama of a mission that would ensure the reconciliation and peace of her children.In A Mother?'s Plea, the pastor of a diverse parish in the inner city of Chicago recounts his journey to fulfill a call in the face of spiritual trials and elusive triumphs. Father Anthony Bus details how faith and trustful surrender sustain the hope that waits for what is unseen. This book is a must read for those on their own path to an authentic spiritual awakening.The initial publication became a religious bestseller in 2005 with sales now crossing over the ocean to Ireland, India, Sri Lanka and to several countries in Africa. This revised edition brings a dramatic finale to the story that forms A Mother?'s Plea, promising hope to a world still so new to the third millennium. I challenge the reader to hear the sound of Our Lady?'s call echoing throughout the pages of A Mother?'s Plea. In 1981, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared near my small village in Rwanda, Africa. She warned us a terrible situation was going to happen if her call for prayer and conversion was not heeded. She asked that a chapel be built and that we should attend Mass and pray the Rosary. Obviously, we did not listen. Now I pray the world will never forget the 100 days in 1994 when more than one million Rwandans were slaughtered by their own countrymen. A Mother?'s Plea is an urgent reminder that whether we live in a major American city or in a small village in the African countryside, we must do our part to ensure peace for our children; and for the future of our nations. (Immaculee Ilibagiza, Author of International BestSeller, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst The Rwandan Holocaust)This is the vividly personal story of a priest in a Chicago parish coming to terms with what the priesthood demands of a man in a great modern city. Profoundly conscious of the sin and unbelief that distort human lives and that touch him too, Father Bus is sometimes desperate in face of the hostile disregard for the Church so prevalent today. (Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago)

Reviews - What do customers think about A Mothers Plea?

Wonderful, inspirational  Jun 2, 2009
This is a wonderful and inspirational book. Fr Anthony Bus has shown the power of the rosary and the universality of the Catholic Church. I suffered with him as he so honestly and openly poured out his struggles with complacency, in himself and in others and in the Church in general; and in his struggles to hear and follow Jesus. So often, I think priests and clergymen have it all together, they are right up by God, right? This book really showed me how much our priests need and want our prayers, our encouragement and even our good example. "A Mother's Plea" has inspired me to seek and pray hard for personal holiness.
 
Soul felt  Apr 1, 2009
Fr. does a good job of the spiritual work required in being a follower of Christ let alone being a priest. He also points out the pit falls of our relativistic life styles and how this has impacted the Catholic Church. I have left the Church over some of these issues but he has awakened me that I need to revisit that decision. Now all I need to do is find a priest like him.
 
awesome information  Feb 5, 2009
