Mother Teresa
Gloria Deo Price: $3.95
By Donal Foley

Many shrines throughout the world are associated with Mary, the Mother of God. What meaning do her apparently random apparitions have? This booklet sets out the links that exist between the nine major apparitions of Mary, accepted as authentic by the Church, and correspondingly important ‘revolutionary’ events in modern Western history. Fascinating parallels are also drawn between these apparitions (Guadalupe 1531, Rue du Bac 1830, La Salette 1846, Lourdes 1858, Pontmain 1871, Knock 1879, Fatima 1917, Beauraing 1932 and Banneax 1933) and various biblical figures and events. Donal Foley has summarized this text for CTS from a larger and more detailed study.

Eminent Victorian, academic and thinker, Anglican clergyman and celebrated convert, caring pastor and writer, Catholic priest, and Cardinal - these are some of the signposts along Newman’s celebrated journey. This refreshing biography reveals a very real and compassionate man who was much more than a writer and polemicist. As a pastor, priest and friend he offered lasting counsel to many people and truly lived out the demands of the Gospel. Newman faced the challenge of his times: rationalism and doubt. In today’s climate of scepticism and polarization, his struggle to maintain a dialogue with the world about him, stands as a beacon of sanity and balance for all who seek the truth.

G.K. Chesterton Message of St. Therese of Lisieux, The: The Little Way of an Unknown Carmelite Nun who became a Doctor of the Church Rule of Life, A: For Daily Christian Living
G.K. Chesterton
Gloria Deo Price: $3.95
By Karl Schmude

Chesterton was a convert to Catholicism and a prolific novelist, critic, bio rapher, journalist. Above all he was a defender of the faith and common sense which he saw in everything natural and good. He debated the great questions that have always preoccupied human beings with other great minds such as George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells. But what transpires from the flamboyance and humour of his poetry and prose is a man in love with life and with God, constantly putting his intellect at the service of ordinary men and of an extraordinary God.
