I'm reading Histoires inédites du Petit Nicholas by Goscinny et Sempé. That's French for Unedited Stories of Little Nicholas. They already have a Latin version of Little Nicholas (Pullus Nicolellus). Children in France are learning Latin. :mrgreen:

The first two you mentioned inspired me very much! I haven't read Meetings with Mary
or Fatima for Today. Any opinions about Fatima for Today? It is a topic I am interested in and like to share with others about.

Francis De Sales Intro to the Devout Life is a great classic!

Fatima for Today by Fr. Andrew Apostoli is a good book.

Just got done reading, 'Lost Scriptures,' by Bart D Ehrman. Some of the pagan books might as well have been written in Madarin Chinese, as far as me understanding them was concerned. I probably found the very end of the book the most interesting, it was about the formation of the canon, it mentions the, 'Muratorian Fragment,' which I had never read about before. Apparently it is the oldest surviving New Testament canon list. I was also surprised to read that the Shepherd of Hermas was held in such high esteem, as it is one of my favourite non-canonical books.


It is important to understand that in the Early Church, they made a distinction between the books read in the liturgy and those regarded as scripture......often times non-scriptural book would be read in the liturgy, and Biblical books would not be read....this is why the early 'canons' seem rather strange to us, the 'canon' was the list of books read in the liturgy....even to this day, only 52 of the 73 books in the Bible are read at Mass....and only 10 of them are read in their entirety.

I also didn't know this, the more you know etc.



WAITAMINIT! I've always been told that once the 3-year liturgical cycle is completed (Daily and Sunday), the entire Bible has been read in the Mass. Is this not true? :scratch:

Then again, I don't remember seeing the "begats" during the daily readings....

At the risk of touching a third rail, I found this pre- and post- Vatican II comparison: http://catholic-resources.org/Lectionary/Statistics.htm

Not even close. About 13% of the Old Testament and 70% of the New Testament is read....

And the fact of the matter is that most of the Bible, especially in the Old Testament, is not really fit for public reading...

I mean..who wants to listen to the full genealogies at the start of 1 Chronicles? (Which I've never heard anybody read out loud in less than an hour)? Who wants to listen to hour after hour of ceremonial law in the book of Leviticus? Or the last eight chapters of the book of Ezekiel which is a very involved and elaborate description of the temple....which I've never heard anyone read out loud in less than 2 hours? Who wants to listen to the endless lists of the kings of Israel and Judah in the books of Kings and Chronicles? But besides all the stuff that is kind of boring to listen to.....there are also significant portions which are inappropriate due tot heir graphic nature, either sexually explicit or descriptions of fairly graphic violence.

The book of Ezekiel is probably the most explicit part of the Bible....he uses a metaphor of Israel being like a woman cheating on her husband....and turns it up to 11 with some shockingly explicit sexual descriptions.....this portion could not even be read aloud on TV or radio with your being fined by the FCC for obscenity....
