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.

The Fire Within: Desire, Sexuality, Longing and GodRead more
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.

After Suicide: Seven Things for Catholics to KnowRead more
After Suicide: Seven Things for Catholics to Know
Is your parish or organization equipped to provide adequate support after suicide? When someone dies by suicide, an entire community is affected by the trauma. Loved ones and community members left behind after this tragedy need to know how to process the devastation, reconcile their own feelings of powerlessness, and find comfort in the mercy of God. Yet there are a lack of faith-based resources on the subject, and many Catholics are confused about how to process their feelings—sometimes contributing to their grief and pain. Author and renowned spiritual teacher Ronald Rolheiser has worked pastorally in the area of suicide for decades, and he wants to help affected communities heal by clarifying misconceptions about suicide and offering the hope and comfort of God’s mercy. In this booklet designed to provide comfort to parishes, support groups, prayer circles, and loved ones, Rolheiser addresses seven things we should know about suicide that can help communities heal together with unity and compassion. This booklet is sold in packs of 10.
If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 24 hours a day at 800-273-8255.

Ronald Rolheiser Essential Spiritual Writings
Ronald Rolheiser, a Catholic priest and theologian, is one of the most popular and influential spiritual writers today. Through such bestselling books as The Holy Longing and Sacred Fire, as well as his syndicated column, “In Exile,” he has shown an ability to outline a healthy Christian spirituality that relates to the deep desires, anxieties, and hopes of ordinary people living in the world.
This collection of his essential writings, which draws in large part on his columns, first outlines the “holy longing” that underlies all spirituality. He then outlines the elements of a “generative,” or fruitful spiritual life, including prayer, suffering and death, love and justice, faith and doubt.
