Item description for American Eastern Catholics (Pastoral Spirituality) by Fred J. Saato...

The long and complex history of the Eastern American Catholic Churches, in their many ethnic varieties, has been difficult to understand. This clearly-written, engaging book changes all that. The author, Fr. Fred Saato, examines the long and often difficult history of the Eastern Catholics, e.g., Melkites, Maronites, Ruthenians, Armenians,Ukrainians, and their relationship, often tenuous, with Rome. The fascinating tale of the movement of these Churches from their embattled homelands to "separate-church-and-state" United States poses serious concerns for the languages, cultures, and traditions of these ancient faiths. At the same time, the flowering of their churches in an English-speaking context has caused many of these Eastern Churches to receive a new Pentecost, examined in this text.Unlike the other pamphlets and booklets on the Eastern Churches that generally speak only of the differences/likenesses between East and West, this text acts as pastoral aid for both the Western Catholic who wants to better understand the Churches of the East, and the Eastern Catholic American who may have lost touch with the singular attributes of their Eastern pedigree.

Publishers Description
The Way Of The Cross For Mothers is a modern interpretation of the Via Crucis that links the sufferings of Jesus on the way to Calvary to the everyday challenges of family life encountered by today's Christian woman. Its purpose is to help mothers, through reflection, to realize their roles as an image of Jesus' love and a transmitter of his message to their families, and to see the potential for the sacred in everyday activities. The prayers and reflections are designed to help mothers understand that the frustrations, insecurities, and fears often encountered in modern parenting can be opportunities for spiritual growth and self-awareness. An opening prayer gently guides the reader to her spiritual center. Each station includes a reflection on the agony of Jesus and its relationship to a mother's own personal and spiritual journey. This is an essential companion for Lenten use, a personal retreat or group prayer meetings. A timeless gem, it is much needed prayer resource for use throughout the year.
