A guide to the church
Category: Church Leadership
This book re-examines, in an eminently practical and timely way, the scriptural foundations and factors, especially in the early formative centuries, which have contributed to the shape of the priesthood as we now know it. And in doing so, it bears witness to the wonder and the mystery of the ministerial priesthood so consistently recognized and appreciated throughout history and in the official teaching of the Church.
Church Fathers and Teachers: From St Leo the Great to Peter Lombard
By exploring both the lives and the ideas of the great peoples, abbots, scholars and missionaries who lived during the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of Christendom, Pope Benedict XVI highlights the key elements of Catholic dogma and practice that remain the foundation stones not only of the Roman Catholic Church but of Christian society itself. This book is wonderful way to get to know these later Church Fathers and Teachers and the tremendous, spiritually rich patrimony they have bequeathed to us.
Prophecies of St. Malachy
The overriding value of the present little volume is twofold: These prophecies are extremely accurate, and there are only four more, after Pope Paul VI, yet to be fulfilled (according to the prophecies) before the end of time. Mr. Bander has compiled her an inestimably valuable tract in the field of prophecy because those of St. Malachy fit beautifully into a pattern woven from the various saintly prognostications, the sibylline oracles, quasi-secular and folk predictions and biblical prophecy. This pattern becomes highly discernible upon reading other of the current works on Catholic prophecy. The present volume, in adding weight and credence to the prophecies of St Malachy, at the same time further develops and substantiates the picture we gain from other sources about the times we live in and the events, it would be seem, we are about to witness.
Anglicans and Catholics in Dialogue on the Papacy
