• The Old Catholic Church aims at informing and inspiring its readers to reflect and entertain the theological richness of the Old Catholic churches of the Union of Utrecht, a Catholic tradition that is unknown and misunderstood by many in North America. Caruso presents much more than a mere history book about Old Catholicism by focusing on its historical origins to better explain the eucharistic nature of the local catholic Church; to which he simultaneously highlights some of the real struggles faced by Independent Old Catholics in North America with regard to this trinitarian and eucharistic understanding of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

  • Dominique M. Varlet (1678-1742) is a great figure in the Independent (Old) Catholic Movement. A composer of commentaries on Scripture, theology, and ecclesiastical abuses he has been a symbol of Christian freedom and church autonomy. He was a parish and missionary priest, bishop, theologian, and church reformer. He is at the origin of the Old Catholic Church and the originator of its episcopate. Bishop Varlet advocated the purification of the Catholic Church and its return to a more authentic Christianity. His theology challenges the authority of the papacy by holding that the Bible is the source of religious authority and that it is the baptized Christians sanctified by the Holy Spirit who give the Church its infallibility. He taught that Christ is personally present through the election of grace. Salvation is experienced by faith in Him, a faith mediated by the whole Church, not exclusively by the clerical establishment or the living magisterium. For Bishop Varlet, justification is relational as well as ontological. The relationship between the believers and the divine Trinity is understood as the growth of Christ-like love in fidelity to the Truth given once for all. These ideas have helped to shape the Old Catholic doctrine.

  • This book presents the theological thought of Bishop Casimir F. Durand who has served as priest under Bishop Rene Vilatte and succeeded him as Ordinary of the Christian (Old) Catholic Church. He also knew Bishops Frederick Lloyd and Daniel Hinton when they were leaders of the American Catholic Church (A.C.C.) communion and became President after them. His testimony is helpful to understand the characteristics of North American Old Catholicism and its evolution towards Episcopal Independent/Community Churches inspired by Gallican ecclesiology and Anglican piety. A biographical sketch precedes the texts, and at the end of the book is an Appendix containing original documents of interest, such as the Catechism compiled by Bishop Lloyd in 1915 and the Official Statement on the A.C.C. made by Bishop Hinton in 1936.

  • A detailed examination of the Catholic Church's remarkable failure to protect its primary source of income: the Sunday collections. The phenomenon of Sunday collection embezzlement in the Catholic Church in America (the focus of this book) ultimately owes its existence to a decades-old decision on the part of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to shun the Church-wide implementation of readily available, low-cost procedures that would virtually guarantee that every dollar placed in the collections is, in fact, deposited into the parish bank account.No objective reader will walk away from this book with anything less than a stunning example of institutional nonfeasance. Most Catholics will also find themselves wondering: "Who or what purpose is being served by this colossal failure to act?"

  • The Western Catholic Church is fast losing her centuries-old sense of the uncreated beauty of God, as manifested through the created beauty of sacred art, by buying into postmodern minimalism for the adornment of new churches. This loss is occurring despite the Church’s longstanding tradition as Patroness of the Arts and the 1999 call of Saint John Paul II for the urgent need to return to “epiphanies of beauty” in Catholic churches worldwide. In the meantime, icons and iconographic frescos that populate Orthodox churches remain much sought after by believers and non-believers alike for their timeless beauty and inescapable sense of the transcendent. Will the People of God be able to resist the new iconoclasm characterized by facelessness in the Western Catholic Church through the triumphant and hidden power of icons? Icons as Resistance: Challenging the New Iconoclasm in the Catholic Church by the Maltese-American Catholic author Marcelle Bartolo-Abela documents a series of engaging conversations about the role that icons have in the Church at large and the role they can play at present in the Roman Catholic Church itself. These conversations were held between the author and a group of traditional Catholics earlier this year.

  • The Broad Church tradition in the Church of England owes much to the mid-19th century pioneers F. D. Maurice, Charles Kingsley and F. W. Robertson. Their vision was Biblical, Evangelical and Catholic with a strong sense of the role of the National Church in seeking to bring every aspect of public and private life in England and Wales under the lordship of God.John Rogerson is an Anglican priest and international authority on the Old Testament. This edition of five short lectures provides a fascinating exploration of the history and theology of the Broad Church movement, showing its deep relevance to the life and mission of the Church today.

  • It is laid down at the outset that the customs of the holy life of the Church should be referred to the chief good of man, that is, God. We must seek after God with supreme affection; and this doctrine is supported in the Catholic Church by the authority of both Testaments. The four virtues get their names from different forms of this love. Then follow the duties of love to our neighbor. In the Catholic Church we find examples of continence and of true Christian conduct.

  • A Priest Forever: The Life and Times of Father Robert McNamara draws together research, insights from family, parishioners, and colleagues, and original writings to fashion a portrait of Father Robert Francis McNamara, a Roman Catholic priest who served the church's Rochester Diocese. Ann K. Maloney draws together material from a variety of sources to present the life and times of a man whom Rochester's Bishop Matthew H. Clark called "an extraordinary man." In a time in the church's history when deep doubts about the clergy lead many to question the trustworthiness of the church itself, A Priest Forever tells how one man-a faithful servant of God-carried out both his calling to priestly service and his immersion in the life of his wider community.

He then contrasts these claims against the claims of the Catholic Church to show why they fall short; and why the Catholic Church is the One, True Church of Jesus Christ.

  • Bishop Robert W. McElroy published "A Church for the Poor" in America Magazine on Oct. 21, 2013. Following conversations with colleagues at Santa Clara University, the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University, and Faith in Public Life, the Lane Center pulled together a roundtable of scholars, activists, and religious leaders to meet with Bishop McElroy and discuss how best to support his challenge, engage the Catholic intellectual tradition, and transform the public political conversation across the western United States and the rest of the country. On April 4, 2014, 20 participants, including Bishop McElroy and the authors in this volume, met on the campus of the University of San Francisco for a daylong gathering centered on the issue of poverty and the task of getting poverty back on the political agenda for the American Catholic Church. This volume combines the voices of theologians and activists, ministers and ethicists. Such collaboration, we believe, is crucial for taking on the challenge initiated by Pope Francis and contextualized in the U.S. by Bishop McElroy because becoming the church of the poor and for the poor necessitates multiple levels of transformation-political, moral, theological, and personal.

  • In this book, Karl Adam seeks to identify the "spirit" or essence of Roman Catholicism. He gives particular weight to the doctrine of the Mystical Body of Christ, which he considers crucial to the problems of the present age, when mankind is desperately seeking a principle of unity and authentic community. There is a place these divinely established bonds can be found - the Church - and this locus of mankind's spiritual unity sheds light on all of Catholic belief and practice: the Papacy, the communion of Saints, the Church Militant, Suffering, and Triumphant, the means of salvation, the necessity of the sacraments, the universality and authority of the Church, and much else.The Spirit of Catholicism is an accessible, articulate, and compelling presentation of the fundamental tenets of the Catholic faith, explaining to all - Catholic and non-Catholic alike - exactly what the Church represents. Its thirteen illuminating chapters comprise one of the finest works of Catholic apologetics written in the last 100 years, and are must-reading for anyone wishing to more deeply appreciate and comprehend the riches of Catholicism.

The positive reach available through the media is certain, but it may also be used to the detriment of many. Online bullying, fake news, and anti-christian movements are common, too. Social Media Magisterium aims to provide insight and wisdom from the Church’s teaching to equip every Catholic to evangelize, defend the Church, and spread the Gospel.

  • To what degree is Wesleyan theology part of the church's catholic witness? This book explores this question from a number of angles and goes on to embody some of these possibilities in conversation with other major traditions and figures within the Christian church. Overall, the volume shows that Wesleyan theology does draw from and can contribute to conversations related to the catholic Christian witness.""Methodists may be better known for their commitment to apostolic mission than to catholic doctrine. Yet, Wesley cared deeply about both, and this book calls those who follow in his steps to do the same. These essays install a wide-angle lens on Wesleyan theological vision, so that the People called Methodist might behold their true location within the Church catholic, serving the renewal of a Wesleyan way, strengthening the connections between theology and practice, doctrine and discipline.""--Jeffrey Conklin-Miller, ThD, Associate Dean for Academic Programs, E. Stanley Jones Assistant Professor of the Practice of Evangelism and Christian Formation, Royce and Jane Reynolds Teaching Fellow, Duke University Divinity School""Embodying Wesley's Catholic Spirit offers both internal and external insights into Wesleyan catholicity--perspectives on both the Wesleyan tradition itself and the way in which Wesleyan theology intersects with other branches of the Christian family.
