the_kiss_of_jesus_spotlight

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of bringing author Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle to my home parish for a day long retreat. Her stay lasted most of the weekend which afforded my wife and I some time to spend with Donna-Marie and her husband. Over dinner Donna-Marie dropped a few hints about her memoir that she was finishing work on. The Kiss of Jesus: How Mother Teresa and the Saints Helped Me to Discover the Beauty of the Cross has finally been released. This book is an intimate portrait of th … [Read more...]

CBB Review: Our Lady, Undoer of Knots: A Living Novena

our_lady_undoer_of_knots_spotlight

The devotion to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, has garnered a lot of attention lately. This renewed focus upon this classic devotional is due largely in part to Pope Francis’ own promotion of it. Marge Fenelon has brought readers an excellent resource for use titled Our Lady, Undoer of Knots: A Living Novena. It’s a great little book I found useful in “undoing” some recent knots in my own life and think you will find it useful as well.The book uses as its central focus the 2014 pilgrimage of Pope … [Read more...]

CBB Review – For God and Country

for_god_and_country_spotlight

Jeanne La Pucelle, the Maid, Joan of Arc. This simple, French maiden whose life changed upon receiving a vision of St. Michael, would end up unbelievably bringing an army and a nation back from the brink near of destruction. I must admit that up until recently my only exposure to St. Joan of Arc was artwork of her, usually upon a horse, in full battle armor. Thanks to Father Michael Cerrone’s book For God and Country: The Heroic Life and Martyrdom of St. Joan of Arc, I now have a better sense of … [Read more...]
