Staying in Place
A new book filled with Anne's clear and thought-provoking writing is waiting for you! Staying in Place, Recovery in the Church is filled with important considerations regarding the role of a co-responsible laity charged with representing the Gospel Message. Our personal relationship with God can only be enhanced by the rich treatment found in the writing on the mind of God, which compels us to become even more thoughtful in a time of distraction. How many of us have asked ourselves how to present God to those Catholics who find themselves in challenging circumstances? What are God's goals for this time and for us, as we try to know Him better and better? How do we recover from wounds when people in the Church hurt us or misrepresent God? This book begins and ends with powerful locutions from Jesus, Who asks us, "How will you know if you are part of the recovery process? Perhaps you can contemplate the following questions. Do you suffer to remain in service to God? Do you see clearly that without effort, God's Church will diminish in scope? Do you feel pain for those who have sought the Savior but have been turned away by the human issues of a troubled Church? Are you suffering the uncertainty of change and the persecution that accompanies reform? Is your contribution to God's Church on Earth costing you?"
Considering these questions might cause us all to pause and reflect on the need to stay in place for Christ. Staying in Place, Recovery in the Church has been granted an Imprimatur by Bishop Leo O'Reilly. The Imprimatur was granted on the last full day of the Year of Mercy. This book describes a way forward into the mercy obtained by our prayers last year. The Year of Mercy, after all, is meant to announce a new time for offering God's mercy. We are at the beginning of this job, not the end.
