2020 International Book Awards, Finalist: Spirituality—Inspirational 2019 Independent Press Awards, Winner: Spirituality 2019 Association of Catholic Publishers, Second Place: Prayer 2019 Best Book Awards, Finalist: Spirituality—Inspirational Every person needs a retreat sometime—to replenish the soul and renew life’s focus. But what if you can’t spend time away from home? What if, instead, you could go on a personal at-home prayer retreat with one of the most experienced and best-loved spiritual directors of our day? An Invitation to Love provides a practical and adaptable sequence of prayer sessions on the great commandment of the Christian faith: to love God and love our neighbor. All other aspects of a healthy and hopeful life grow from our practices of love. When we experience God’s love for us, we can respond with a growing love for God. Loving God will transform us into people who can love our neighbors, too, whoever they are. The voice that speaks in these pages so personally and warmly is that of William A. Barry, SJ, who for decades has gently accompanied people in their prayer. His understanding of Scripture, expertise in nurturing spiritual growth, and joyful confidence in God’s desire for our friendship prepares a welcoming and walkable path to conversation with God and renewal in our hearts.

Is love the place where psychological observation and spiritual wisdom about healing meet? If love is associated with healing of all sorts, how do I more consciously set about to grow in love, seeking healing for myself and for my neighbours, community and world? How do I encourage others in their journeys into love? Drawing on a broad Christian heritage, a deep respect for the insights of other religious and spiritual traditions and two decades of work in welfare and clinical settings, psychologist Sharon Southwell encourages spiritual seekers of all backgrounds to consider these questions for themselves. Structured in 52 Reflections, each followed by 'Invitations', The Life of Love invites you to grow in love by embracing life-giving connection to yourself, to others, your community, to art, nature and to your ultimate context, whether you experience this as God or as some other immanent or transcendent spiritual connection.

Follow the Sanatan Dharma, the Eternal Religion of Prema, Divine Love, and the one and only that can only be found in your heart. And remember: YOU must guide others to it through love, simplicity and truth. That is the only way. That is the unspoken, eternal and nameless way. Always remember that no time is ever wasted except for the time that one is not loving. Move out of the house of ignorance! There are better places to live. Ring, ring! Wake up! The Buddha nature and Christ-like energy within are ready to be reawakened in all. Become like a child! Enter the kingdom of heaven. The Christ and Buddha nature are within! So, where is the kingdom? Excerpted from Invitation to Love. 108 Reminders for the Enlightened Ones "The greatest blessing in my life was the gift of being in the physical presence of Babaji in Herrekhan in 1980. One day he said that he would be leaving his body, I asked him if he would still come to me if I asked. He simply looked at me and smiled knowingly and said: "Of course!" Recently, my work healing moved to a new level. Some of the recent miracles have been so powerful as to leave me shaky. I could only turn to God to keep myself stable and humble; and so I asked for his advice. Well, he has answered my request. And I imagine he will answer the prayers of many others, through the writings of Ivonne Delaflor. In them I recognize his voice, his humor, his teaching. Thank you Babaji! And thank you Ivonne for being such an open channel!" Dan Brulé Guchu Ram Singh

Jane Austen's classic novel, "Pride and Prejudice," ends with the marriage of the Bennet sisters to their hard-won fiances, but the story of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy's life together is only beginning. "And This Our Life" is an affectionate and historically accurate sequel that chronicles the lives of the Darcys during their first year of marriage. In addition to learning to be the mistress of Pemberley, the Darcy estate, and overcoming the preconceptions of her new relatives, Elizabeth must help her young sister-in-law, Georgiana, find her way to womanhood through the maze of ritual, tradition and marital politics that is Regency-era England. Often snubbed by the first circles of society, Elizabeth strives to gain acceptance with the same grace and wit that attracted Mr. Darcy, while helping Georgiana acquire the confidence she needs to find true love and happiness, no matter what obstacles are placed in their way.

The Gospel Invitation

By a very natural antithesis we have become accustomed to set this definition of Jehovah , " Our God is a consuming fire , " over against that other one , " God is love , " as indicating the two opposite poles of the divine nature .
