Pope John Paul 2nd
In stock
The document is an instrument of the papal post-synodal Magisterium which provides particularly applicable pastoral teaching to assist the Church in Oceania in her work of evangelizing all — Church members and others — in the Pacific region. Ecclesia in Oceania is mainly composed of four chapters based on the elements in the formulation of the synod theme: “Jesus Christ and the Peoples of Oceania: Walking His Way, Teaching His Truth, Living His Life”. In this regard, the Holy Father states: “the theme is inspired by the words of John´s Gospel where Jesus refers to himself as the Way, the Truth and the Life (Jn 14:6) and it recalls the invitation which he extends to all the peoples of Oceania; they are invited to meet him, to believe in him, and to proclaim him as the Lord of all. It also reminds the Church in Oceania that she gathers together as the People of God journeying on pilgrimage to the Father. Through the Holy Spirit, the Father calls believers — individually and in community..

Spe Salvi On Christian Hope

Pope Benedict XVI
In stock
Pope Benedict XVI's second encyclical, Saved In Hope, ("Spe Salvi" in Latin) takes its title from St. Paul, who wrote, "In hope we have been saved". In this special deluxe hardcover edition of the work, the Holy Father continues a line of thought he began with his first encyclical, God is Love. Love and Hope are closely related in the spiritual life. Love of God involves hope or trust in God. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, "The virtue of hope responds to the aspiration to happiness which God has placed in the heart of every man". Hope enables us to look to the next life, but it also inspires and purifies our actions in this life. Pope Benedict considers modern philosophies and the challenges of faith today in light of the virtue of hope. "Confronted by today's changing and complex panorama, the virtue of hope is subject to harsh trials in the community of believers. For this very reason, we must be apostles who are filled with hope and joyful trust in God's promises..

Laudato Si

Pope Francis
In stock
Possibly one of the most important encyclicals of our time, Pope Francis addresses humanity's relationship with the natural world in Laudato Si'. The Christian and secular world have been captivated by the papacy of Pope Francis, and this encyclical has drawn huge attention globally to the critical ecological and environmental issues facing us all.   "Laudato si'" is the introductory phrase to eight verses of St. Francis of Assisi's famous prayer thanking God for the gifts of creation. "Praise be to you, my Lord, with all your creatures, especially Sir Brother Sun, who is the day, and through whom you give us light", one of the first lines says.   Laudato Si' is likely to have a strong realm of influence over the UN climate change summit in Paris in December 2015. It emphasises the importance of nurturing all of creation and grasping the nettle in dealing with the ecological and environmental challenges the world is facing, through a shift in political and economic thinking that is lif..
