Dietrich von Hildebrand's Transformation in Christ: Book Review

The Home provides many formation exercises for all age groups, with a special emphasis on our youth. But even for older singles and parents looking to move forward, deeper into their journey with Christ, the Home provides something like a 'Catholic Think Tank' environment, as they share their study of church documents, theological dissertations and the lives of the saints with anyone interested.

Book Review - The Discernment of Spirits

Following the Home of the Mother silent retreat in November 2017, where guided meditation and the Ignatian style of prayer were explored, I began a series of reviews of books written by Fr. Timothy M. Gallagher, OMV. This is the third and final book review in the series.

Book Review - The Examen Prayer: Ignatian Wisdom for Our Lives Today, by Fr. Timothy Gallagher, OMV

In light of the recent Home of the Mother of All Humanity, Mother of the Youth silent retreat, where retreatants were given the opportunity to experience guided meditations and to pray using an Ignatian style of prayer, there are three books written by Fr. Timothy M. Gallagher, OMV that I thought would be of great interest. Fr. Gallagher has many years of experience with Ignatian style of prayer and spiritual direction, has led numerous retreats, and is an instructor at schools of spiritual direction (the two I am aware of are: Our Lady of Divine Providence School of Spiritual Direction in Clearwater, FL and the Lanteri Center for Ignatian Spirituality in Denver, Colorado.)

Holy Thursday

One of the most beautiful books ever written on the Eucharist was written by a French writer and diplomat in the 1930s, reminiscing about the Holy Thursday liturgy of his childhood.  It is just under 100 pages and a fairly quick read, so it is not impossible to read it in a couple of sittings. I know a few people who try to read it every Holy Week as a preparation for the beginning of the Triduum and that lovely celebration of the Lord’s Last Supper.

Expectant Joy

Expectant Joy is a prayer resource for couples and families to journey through pregnancy together. The prayer is divided into trimesters and focuses on a different person of the Holy Trinity allowing the family to prepare their hearts and souls for the arrival of the newest little one on the way.
