I have received new books. Recent arrivals include
First, from the pen of Fr. Cliff Ermatinger comes If You Knew the Gift of God: Grace: What it is, what it does, and how to cooperate with it according to Church Teaching and Tradition
Fr. Ermatinger reminds us that the saints about whom read, impressive figures, were real people just like us. We, too, are called to holiness.
Another title from Ignatius Press and George Weigel is The Fragility of Order: Catholic Reflections On Turbulent Times. If I remember correctly, he also wrote a book on the “tranquility of order”.
The TOC is intriguing:
Introduction: Things Coming Apart?
A World without Order
with 5 essays
A Republic in Disarray
The Chruch in the Postmodern World
4 essays, two of them about the controversial Synods
Again from Ignatius Press, a book co-authored by a layman and a Jesuit. Since this is Ignatius Press, we don’t have to be too suspicious!
José Luis Iriberri, SJ and Chris Lowney give us On The Ignatian Way: A Pilgrimage in the Foosteps of Saint Ignatius of Loyola
St. Ignatius, whose feast is upon us, made a pilgrimage to Manresa, Spain. This book intends to help the read plan a pilgrimage. I includes also essays from several writers.
And two that I have mentioned before but are important.
Very exciting is a volume from the mighty Nicola Bux, No Trifling Matter: Taking the Sacraments Seriously Again:
And there’s Martin Mosebach updated The Heresy of Formlessness: The Roman Liturgy and Its Enemy (Revised and Expanded Edition) republished by Angelico.
Everyone of you should read Mosebach’s book.
