What Do You Do When Your World Falls Apart?
For Donna Marie Thompson, it was a perfect storm of losses. She lost her mother, her man, her money, and her health. But it wasn't just about the people, things, and conditions; she lost her plans, her dreams-the very future she had been creating.
So, what did Donna Marie do when virtually everything she had worked and sacrificed for disappeared? She picked herself up, brushed herself off, and began to rebuild her life.
This is not a book about how Donna Marie made the best of a bad situation and had a fairy tale ending. (She didn't.) Neither is it a review of why these terrible developments were the best things that ever happened to her. (They weren't ) Instead, it is a blueprint for learning life's lessons, a guide for how to glue it back together should your world fall apart.

The publication by Benedict XVI of the motu proprio has put the question of the historyand meaning of the liturgy back into centre stage, not just for catholics but for many other christians as well. Dr. Hemming seeks to provide an intelligent background to the Pope's decision, addressing himself to a number of questions about the nature and character of catholic worship that opens a much wider historical discussion which will inform and persuade a wide audience.
The chapter on liturgy and revelation is the turning point in the book and shows how an understanding of time that is presumed in all modern philosophical thought, is challenged by the understanding of divine self-revelation. This then forces us to ask what our relation to liturgical events are and how we experience them. Hemming advocates a high theology of the liturgy with the profoundest understanding of the spiritual and the enigma of faith. How will Christian worship change now, asks the author in his concluding chapter? He offers a sketch of what may happen in the coming decades, long after the Papacy of Benedict XVI.
