A Letter from our President Sacred scripture offers a rich treasure of inspiration for daily life. That is why RENEW International continues to bring new resources to parishes worldwide that encourage and enable Catholics to view their lives through a scriptural lens. With this perspective, they can more fully align their actions with the gospel values of mercy, charity, and justice. My own book LIVE LENT! is a new approach for experiencing Lent. With weekly faith-sharing sessions on the Sunday readings, as well as daily prayers and reflections, it encourages us to use Lent as a time for transformation and to move beyond observing Lent to living it. Perfect for personal and small-group use. The RENEW Scripture Series continues with Matthew: Come, Follow Me. Scripture scholar Martin Lang again brings his insights into this, the first Gospel, making connections to the Old Testament while showing how relevant Matthew is for today’s world. Luke: My Spirit Rejoices! is also available. Be My Witness, a Christ-centered, Spirit-led process to transform the parish and form disciples for the New Evangelization, was launched this year and has already helped parishes begin a process of transformation into more vibrant faith communities. Be My Witness draws its inspiration from Pope Francis’ The Joy of the Gospel and engages parish staff, leaders, and pastoral councils to effect change, forming missionary disciples via parish small groups. I encourage you to read our new blog, Evangelization Matters, where you will find inspiring stories and practical approaches to make your parish more evangelizing. You can find it at blog.bemywitness.org. If you are interested in Be My Witness as a fully integrated parish process, please contact us to learn more at 1-888-433-3221. Many blessings to you as you strive to live in accordance with God’s Word! Sr. Theresa Rickard, OP President and Executive Director

Living in the Sacred is a follow-up faith-sharing resource for RENEW International’s popular Longing for the Holy and is based on Ronald Rolheiser’s latest book, Sacred Fire. Living in the Sacred takes participants on a deeper spiritual journey exploring the second stage of discipleship: “Giving your life away.” Having moved through the “getting your life together’’ stage, participants have made life commitments in either marriage or other relationships, such as raising children, caring for sick or elderly parents, pursuing careers, and engaging in the life of a community. Living in the Sacred is about how we stay true to these commitments as disciples of Christ.

Living in the Sacred: Spirituality for Everyday Life with Ronald Rolheiser, OMI $18.95

About These Resources Many of the spiritual insights for these books were drawn from the writings of Fr. Ronald Rolheiser, a Roman Catholic priest and member of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Fr. Rolheiser serves as president of the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas.

Priestly Life

Beyond My Wildest Dreams From Local Ministry to Worldwide Mission By Thomas A. Kleissler

Beyond My Wildest Dreams is the memoir of Msgr. Thomas A. Kleissler, who co-founded RENEW, the first diocese-wide faith-sharing process in the United States. Under Msgr. Kleissler’s leadership, RENEW International went on to touch the lives of millions of people all over the world. Msgr. Kleissler begins his story with his own childhood, takes it through the origins of RENEW amid the social turbulence of the 1960s, and its unexpected growth. This is a dynamic story, filled with anecdotes about Msgr. Kleissler’s travels as he and members of his staff spread the spirit of RENEW across six continents, helping people of many cultures put their Christian faith to practice in their everyday lives.

$24.95

Beyond My Wildest Dreams is the remarkable story of Msgr. Thomas Kleissler, a man whose desire it was, as an ordained minister, to build God’s kingdom by connecting faith to people’s everyday lives. With a deep conviction that small-community experiences could transform parishes, the Church, and bring people closer to God, Msgr. Kleissler was the fire behind the RENEW movement. —Ronald Rolheiser, OMI, President, Oblate School of Theology, San Antonio, Texas
