New Resources

  • The Genealogy as Symbol of Advent Gestation - Caryll Houselander - from The Reed of God - It is not only in work, in the realization of faith, and in conscious prayer that we need the season of Advent; we need it in suffering, in joy, and in thought.
  • The Meaning of Christmas: Look Deeper - Peter Kreeft - The National Catholic Register - While Christmas is so familiar that we sometimes wonder whether anything fresh and true can be said about it, there is a way to explore its meaning that may seem new to us today, yet is in fact quite traditional, dating back to the Middle Ages and the ancient Fathers of the Church.
  • Foreword - Father John Horgan - from Canadian Saints - I grew up in a Catholic family, in a working class Catholic neighbourhood in New England where there were two parish churches less than ten minutes walk from each other.
  • How the Church Has Changed the World: The Miracle of Jasna Gora - Anthony Esolen -Magnificat - "What is the man doing? Is he mad? Does he want the world to fall about our ears?"
  • What 2016 Grads Need to Hear - George Will - Prager University - College commencement addresses often are collections of bromides and boring advice.
  • A Deeper Vision: Catholicism and the Past Century - Robert Royal - Catholic World Report - Most people — even most Catholics — don't realize it, but the twentieth century, or at least the first two-thirds of it, were a kind of golden age for Catholic intellectual and cultural life.
  • The Contemporary Denial of Reality - Anthony Esolen - Crisis - Prudence, writes Josef Pieper, is the root of all the natural virtues, and there is an obvious reason why. It is the virtue of seeing reality as it is.
  • Darkness and light - Father George W. Rutler - From the Pastor - It would seem odd that as Christmas draws closer, the Church makes a point of reminding us of Hell.
