3 Laborem Exercens “On Human Work”

Alan Shreck Emmaus Road Publishing ePub
Popes are the Church’s chief shepherds. While some focused on governing the Church and addressing challenges from the world, others recognized their primary responsibility to proclaim and teach the Gospel. Author Alan Schreck calls these the “teaching popes” and John Paul II was such a pope, leading the Church and impacting the world with his witness and his teaching.The encyclical letter has been, in modern times, the instrument for popes to express their most important teaching—teachings that have lasting value for the Church, and often for the whole world. Dr. Schreck invites the reader to become familiar with the encyclical letters of Pope John Paul II. In The Legacy of Pope John Paul II, Dr. Schreck breaks down more scholarly writing into accessible language. The reflection questions and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter help facilitate a systematic study of the central teachings of this brilliant but pastoral pope, who conveyed the truth in love.- See more at: http://www.emmausroad.org/The-Legacy-of-Pope-John-Paul-II-The-Central-Teaching-of-His-14-Encyclical-...

Chapter VIII - Called to Be Children of Mary

Leon J Jr Suprenant Emmaus Road Publishing ePub

Beginning with the idea that our families should be a place
where we discover love and God Himself, Curtis Martin shows us that we are part
of an even bigger family—God’s family—through the Incarnation of His Son, Jesus
Christ. Through Baptism, each of us becomes a child of God and enters into the
family that has God as its Father and Mary as its mother. Martin points out
that if we truly have a personal relationship with God and live as His sons and
daughters, we will also love His mother.
