Father Gaetano’s Puppet Catechism by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden

BRILFatherGaetanoL

This review is of the audiobook edition and originally appeared at SFFaudio. My rating: 3 of 5 stars. When this audio novella came in for review, it took a few days to make the connection: Mike Mignola is the creator of Hellboy! I’m a fan of the Hellboy movies (directed by Guillermo del Toro), but [Read More...]

Introduction to Catholicism for Adults, Chapter 1 Notes

When do you break down and write a book review chapter-by-chapter? When you suspect that pound-for-pound, the book is bigger than your own brain.  Hence the suspicion that by the time you finish Chapter 25, you’ll have no memory of how you really felt about Chapter 1. Big is not bad, when the topic is [Read More...]

Day Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko

Day Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko My rating: 4 of 5 stars Loneliness, dejection, the contempt or pity of people around you–these are unpleasant feelings. But they are precisely the things that produce genuine Dark Ones. As with the previous book in the series, Night Watch, this is comprised of three stories. Unlike the previous book, [Read More...]

Choosing Joy

Teilhard de Chardin said many odd things, but when he said “Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God” he had certainly hit on a profound truth. A joy that is not just a reflection of momentary emotional happiness, but a joy of reflective of living the Gospel despite what you currently feel. [Read More...]

Pope Names

Pope Names

Jimmy Akin put out an ebook last year without publicity that he wrote on the lark. That ebook concerned a study of papal names and was simpply called “Pope Names” which describes itself as “The Definitive Guide to the History of Papal Naming, Why Popes Choose the Names they Do, and What Name the Next [Read More...]

Lent: Books

WHAT I’M READING As often happens, I am already reading two books that are really hitting me where I live. I can just keep going with them through Lent. I realize they are Pope Benedict-centric which is just going to make me miss him all the more upon his retirement soon. Oh well. It will [Read More...]

Living the Beatitudes: A Journey to  Life in Christ

cover-livingthebeatitudes

I didn’t intend to read Living the Beatitudes: A Journey to  Life in Christ, by J. Brian Bransfield (Pauline Books & Media, 2011), right now, but in another devotional, I came across the Beatitudes. There was a question for reflection along the lines of, “Am I taking time to really reflect on and live the [Read More...]

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

cover-quietcain

I’ve been fascinated with things related to personality for years. Back in my undergrad days, when I thought I would be an ag teacher someday, I studied up on learning styles. That involved a brush with Myers-Briggs and Keisey-Bates. I’ve been addicted ever since. On the one hand, it has given me a lens to [Read More...]

My Pope

When Pope Benedict was elected pope in 2005, I was not yet Catholic; but I was already interested in the Catholic Church. I was reading Catholic blogs, and buying Catholic books. I’d heard of Cardinal Ratzinger, God’s Rottweiller, and had known people who could not say his name without emphasizing the word “Rat”. I wanted [Read More...]
