    Daybreaks for Advent and Christmas

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son to us,” John 3:16.

    Drawing from Scripture, literature, and personal experience, Fr. Rolheiser shows God’s love in such abundance that our souls yearn for that love. God lies inside us as an invitation that fully respects our freedom, never overpowers us, but also never goes away. The invitation lies there precisely like a baby lying helpless in the straw, gently beckoning us, but helpless in itself to make us pick it up.

    For each day of Advent through the Octave of Christmas, Advent Daybreaks provides an opportunity for prayer and reflection on the coming of the messiah, the word made flesh.

    Also available in Spanish.

    The Fire Within: Desire, Sexuality, Longing and God

    For most religious people, the words God and sex never go together.

    God is conceived of as holy, pure, sexless, and as morally above the raw desires that so powerfully beset us. Sex, on the other hand, is conceived of as earthy and unholy, something we must snatch, and not without guilt, from the gods. Christianity has struggled mightily with sex; so too have most other religions. And yet when we look at sexual desire and ask where it comes from, there can be only one answer. It comes from God.

    This is a book on desire, its experience, its origins, its meaning, and how it might be generatively channeled. Sexuality is inside us to help lure us back to God, but dealing with this fire inside us is a lifelong struggle. Ron Rolheiser sheds light on this mystery and the journey it takes us on in these tantalizing fragments that help give us permission to feel what we feel and know that God is still smiling on us.
