That battle was so unbelievable. A serious turning point in Euopean history. Who knows what would have happened to Europe if the Turks had prevailed.


Put a short article about that miracle in the bulletin a few years ago, had a parishioner complain to the Diocese that I was a racist! Diocese backed me up on it.

I rarely read novels, but I've decided to start one while I'm off work between Christmas and New Year's Eve. I was originally thinking about some sort of classic, but this sounds like it might be fun.

I am reading "The Sunflower" by Simon Wiesenthal. It's a great Holocaust inspired book. Totally suggest it(: :D

I had forgotten about this and it is over a month ago now but when I had a couple of friends staying with me who enjoy nothing more than browsing in 2nd hand book shops especially in a seaside town we visited Barmouth (just South of my part of NW Wales, not far from Harlech). There I found the Maisie Ward biography of Chesterton pub. 1944. Filled in some gaps in my knowledge and was pretty good on the whole. Also a Chesterton novel I hadn't read before :'The Flying Inn'.

I thoroughly enjoyed both. In fact I laughed aloud at several points during the FI something I do not do so often nowadays. I was delighted to find the poem there
"Before the Roman came to Rye or out to Severn strode
The rolling English drunkard made the rolling English road-----"
which someone quoted to me over 20 years ago and told me was by Chesterton but which I had never read. And the whole conceit about the attempted Islamification of Britain has some resonance today.

I read that first and then the biography so was quite surprised that Maisie Ward rated 'The Flying Inn' so low. To be fair I thought she made a couple of good points but they had not disturbed my enjoyment of it.

I'm reading "Das Vaterunser" by Joseph Ratzinger (Benedikt XVI.) published by Herder in year 2008.

This is, of course, all in German. But you can find the equivalent in English by using another book "Jesus of Nazareth" by the same author. Read Chapter 5: "The Lord's Prayer."

In addition to German words, this book has illustrations by Marc Chagall and the Lord's Prayer in various languages, including Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese, Church Slavonic, Swedish, Esperanto, Latin, etc.

I didn't say that again. The board crashed. Here's the image of the book cover I wanted to add:

I am currently reading about 20 books. I find that I can shift from book to book depending upon my mood and time available to read. I just broke the cover of Brad Butkovich, The Battle of Pickett's Mill. It is about a Civil War battle in Georgia in May 1864 featuring Sherman defeated by J. Johnston. The cover alleges that it is the only battle that Sherman completely left out of his memoirs.

Yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the Third Part of the Fatima secret. Sister Lucia wrote it down on January 3, 1944.

The original manuscript is now on the display at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima.

So I read another book. It is titled "Era Santo Era Uomo" by Lino Zani. It got translated into English with the different title "The Secret Life of John Paul II" published by Saint Benedict Press.

The fascinating part is that this book has a different interpretation of the Third Part of the Fatima Secret.

I guarantee you that you will be inspired!

I've thought about reading this lately. Also thinking about Lord of the Rings too. It's been 7-8 years since I read it last, and I always think about Fellowship of the Ring in the fall.

Also reading Faith and Certitude by Fr. Thomas Dubay.

You don't read The Lord of the Rings every year? :nooo:

I'm currently reading Remaining in the Truth of Christ.

I know, right. I started reading about this "Catholic" thing a few years ago; I thought I'd be done reading everything Catholic a long time ago but it turns out there is a lot of books on the topic. Somehow I got sucked into this series... ;)

I'm a bit like Highlander (below); I often find myself with a good size pile of books next to my favorite chair. At the moment top priorities are to read the "Saint of the Day" (Foley) and also the Mass Missal, plus Ven Archbishop Sheen's "Life of Christ," Francis MacNutt's "Healing," Scott Hahn's "Swear to God," and Richard Chilson's "Prayer Making."
I recently finished Pope Francis' "Church of Mercy" and St Thomas Aquinas' "The Ways of God." I'd love to discuss any of these of these if there is interest.
