St. Giuseppe Moscati – A Tiber River Review

St. Giuseppe Moscati was an Italian doctor in Naples.  He came from an aristocratic family, but after finishing medical school was struck by the poor and suffering he saw in the hospital he worked in.  Despite hospital regulations, he spent more time with those patients who truly needed him than he was supposed to.  Not only did he annoy his …

I Am David – A Tiber River Review

It seems almost impossible for me to write a review for I Am David.  Nothing I could say would do this movie justice. David is a young boy who, after being born and raised in a Communist concentration camp in Italy, is finally able to escape with the help of another inmate.  In his young life he has seen nothing but …

Cat. Chat Volume 4 – A Tiber River Review

I requested Cat Chat 4, because my daughter was preparing for First Holy Communion last spring, and I really wanted to excite her about the Mass. She loves the other Cat Chat CDs we own (I think we have all of them now), so I hoped she would especially enjoy this one. I was not disappointed! As usual, the creators …

How to Get to I Do – A Tiber River Review

How to Get to I Do is a fascinating psychological study of the contemporary Catholic dating scene, but I would hesitate to recommend it as a guide for anyone who wishes to actually find a husband. Author Amy Bonaccorso is described in the back-of-the-book flavour text as a “veteran of the Christian dating scene,” and so she is. She spent …

Doers of the Word – A Tiber River Review

Archbishop Dolan went from the peace and quiet of Wisconsin to the hustle and bustle of New York City. In this book, he writes very eloquently about how he has found that God is present both in the stillness of meditation and in the busy-ness of every day life.   This idea really struck a chord with me as I struggle …

Fulfillment of All Desire – A Tiber River Review

I would definitely put this on the list of the top ten books all Catholics should read!  After having read many of the biographies and other books from which Ralph Martin takes lengthy excerpts, I got a lot from reading The Fulfillment of All Desire.  It is a very well-written body of work that contains a beautiful synthesis of the …
