Rerouting Finding Our Way Back to God and His Church Fr. John Riccardo When we lack a basic understanding of what the Church teaches, we can feel as if we’re on a road without a map, or have the wrong map, or only pieces of the map. So how can we journey to the Father and the eternal life Christ won for us? Without a map, how will we make it to our destination? Rerouting addresses this problem head on, putting the map once again into our hands—or, in today’s language, providing us with the voice of a GPS device telling us where we must go in order to come safely home. Fr. Riccardo, in his distinctive, incisive way, brings us face-to-face with Christ as the Church has proclaimed him from its earliest days. Guiding us around obstacles we often face as we try to understand our faith, this book answers questions Catholics commonly ask: What is the goal of human life? What really happens at Mass? Why is sexuality holy, and why must it be treated as such? In the culture in which we live, we can often be blinded to transcendence—and therefore to the saving work of Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection. Rerouting presents us with a sweeping vista of what we believe in a way that makes sense and ISBN: 978-1-59325-332-5 causes our faith to grow and flourish, both in our hearts and in the 5¼ x 8, softcover, 144 pages, $14.95 world.

New Titles SOMETHING MORE FAITH SERIES

God always has more for us—more of this love, more of his grace, more of his peace. How can we be open to receiving these gifts, both during our personal prayer and at Mass? Two new booklets, Getting More Out of Prayer and Getting More Out of Mass, were designed to answer that question. Each booklet features five sessions, including a Scripture passage, a short commentary, and questions for discussion and reflection. Suggested prayer exercises for during the week deepen the reader’s connection with the Lord and help set the pattern for a regular time of daily prayer and reflection. These books were especially designed for individuals or parish groups that have limited time but are looking for a great impact. They are perfect for any small group or for parents whose children are attending religious education classes. Award-winning author and speaker Mark Hart, editor of the series, introduces each booklet and, in his engaging style, assures us that there really is “something more” that the Lord wants to give us!
