Summary of At the Heart of the Gospel: Reclaiming the Body for the New Evangelization by Christopher West
The Prodigal Catholic
by Father Richard Conlin
5d ago
Here is my summary of this great book! The Problem: Idolaters or Iconoclasts? Due to sin (the original sin of Adam and Eve + the structures of sin in our culture, the disordering of our passions caused by original sin = concupiscence, and the continued effects of sin), we can often fall into one of two extremes. Idolaters. Just as idolatry is the worship of images, we too can worship the image of the body and attempt to live a “carnal life” divorced from the spirit and an eroticism in which we indulge in sexual feelings and desires. Idolaters mistake the sign of beauty for Beauty Itself (the e ..read more

Summary of The Fruit of Her Womb: 33-Day Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary by Fr. Boniface Hicks, OSB
The Prodigal Catholic
by Father Richard Conlin
1w ago
The following 9 Days of reflections are my own personal summary Fr. Hicks’ book, The Fruit of Her Womb: 33-Day Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary. The main image Fr. Hicks uses is that of the “womb of Mary” (rather than St. Louis de Montfort’s slavery image, which can easily bring up negative connotations) to speak of what true devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary looks like. This is not so much a summary as my own reflection. As such, I might turn this into an actual 9 Days to Marian Consecration book (this blog post will be continually updated as I reflect more on my own ..read more

Fulton Sheen said during his last recorded Good Friday address in 1979 that he spoke on the subject of Christ’s 7 Last Words 58 times. This Anthology puts together 7 books Sheen wrote: (1) The Seven Last Words, (2) The Cross and the Beatitudes, (3) The Rainbow of Sorrow, (4) Victory over Vice, (5) The Seven Virtues, (6) Seven Words to the Cross, (7) Seven Words of Jesus and Mary.

“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:34) | EXPLAINED | 4th Word from the Cross
The Prodigal Catholic
by Father Richard Conlin
2M ago
When the Gospel writers state that Our Blessed Lord cried out this 4th word from the Cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34), what type of cry was it? Q. Was it a cry of despair? A. No! Since “despair” signifies the voluntary refusal to hope in God’s promises and the means God provides to obtain the ends which He promises, Christ could not have given into despair because He underwent His Passion with perfect knowledge that He was fulfilling the divine will. Q. Was it a cry of damnation? A. No! Since “damnation” signifies the pain of definitive privation of God’s grace ..read more
