CBB Review: Autumn Meditations

One of my favorite things this year has been the passing of the seasons. However, my reasoning is likely not what you might expect to hear. As certainly as the seasons have passed from spring, to summer, to winter we have been blessed with a series of meditation books from Father John Bartunek. I have reviewed Spring Meditations, Summer Meditations and now we have Autumn Meditations.As with the other installments in the series this book contains twelve chapters.

CBB Review – Particles of Faith

Review by Julie Abell“How can you, as a Catholic, explain what the Church teaches about the relationship between science and faith?”  That is the question scientist, writer, and scholar Stacy A. Trasancos chose to answer in her book titled Particles of Faith: A Catholic Guide to Navigating Science. I picked up this book because I needed a little navigating!  I am not a scientist, but as a home school mom I have had years of re-learning science in order to teach my children and quite frankly, … [Read more...]

CBB Review: These Beautiful Bones

Review by Michele CraigHaving fallen in love with Saint Pope John Paul II, I hang on his every word!

CBB Review: Pope Francis Takes the Bus

One thing can definitively be said about Pope Francis….he is the Pope of the unexpected. From the moment he became Pope he has repeatedly done things differently than his predecessors. From the night he was elected and returned to the hotel in his papal garments, on a bus, with the cardinals who had just elected him. That same day he went to the front desk of the hotel and tried to pay for his room. He decided to live among the workers in the Vatican instead of the apartments reserved for the p … [Read more...]
