CBB Review: RISEN

Risen is an epic film that is a pure joy to watch.

CBB Review: Doors of Mercy

Father Jeffrey Kirby and Brian Kennelly have a magnificent book on salvation history that does a couple of things.

CBB Review: Julie reviews Talking to God – Prayers for Catholic Women

Calm and peaceful - that is how I felt while reading Julie Cragon’s newest book, Talking to God: Prayers for Catholic Women. Throughout the day, I do not realize how tight I am or how I hold my breath until I pray and then I feel the tension slide off my body and my breathing slows and deepens.  Truly, as I read through the prayers in this book, one after the other, I caught myself feeling joy and peace.  Mind you, none of the situations in my life had changed, but the reminders from the author t … [Read more...]
