Catholicism – A Tiber River Review

First, and to the point: Catholicism excellent book, the new standard to give to the seeker, the RCIA participant, the college student, the non-Catholic spouse, the skeptical friend, even the lost Catholic. It is slender and readable, accessible, creative, and thorough.  It is the fruit of both an accomplished scholar and a popular writer. I highly recommend it. Barron’s book invites us …

Looking For the King – A Tiber River Review

During one of the days wherein I was in intense pain along with having a sinus infection, I stayed in bed and read. I normally don't read books in one day.

St. Joseph Red Sunday Missal: A Tiber River Review

  Years ago, you might have found people bringing their own copy of the Missal to Mass.  Over the years, it seems to have lost some ‘steam’ with Catholics.  Part of that shift might be the prevalence of the tissue paper thin yearly books containing the readings and music for the parish.  I had years of just listening as the …
