Lady Poverty, Breton O. F. M. , Valentine; Oligny O. F. M. , Paul J. (translated by)
1 Breton O. F. M. , Valentine; Oligny O. F. M. , Paul J. (translated by) Lady Poverty
To St. Francis, poverty, which most of us regard as a negative thing and an abstraction, was our Lady Poverty, a person and a playmate; yes, the bride of the religious. But there is a deeper reason why the saints loved poverty - because they were following our Lord Jesus Christ. Should not a Christ follower empty himself of all selfishness and adhere to God's will in obedience, so that he may be filled with all the fullness of God? Father Breton teaches the true scale of values in a Christian life in this classic book. Bound in cloth; there are two tiny holes at the top near the spine. The jacket has slight soiling to the front; the original price tag is on the front. Not price-clipped, in protective cover. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

4 Jenkins, Philip New Anti-Catholicism, The: the Last Acceptable Prejudice
0195154800 / 9780195154801; Anti-Catholicism has a long history in America. And as Philip Jenkins argues in The New Anti-Catholicism, this virulent strain of hatred - once thought dead - is alive and well in our nation, but few people seem to notice, or care. A statement that is seen as racist, misogynistic, anti-Semitic, or homophobic can haunt a speaker for years, writes Jenkins, but it is still possible to make hostile and vituperative public statements about Roman Catholicism without fear of serious repercussions. Jenkins shines a light on anti-Catholic sentiment in American society and illumiates its causes, looking closely at gay and feminist anti-Catholicism, anti-Catholic rhetoric and imagery in the media, and the anti-Catholicism of the academic world. It was said that with the election of John F. Kennedy, anti-Catholicism in America was dead. This provocative book corrects that illusion, drawing attention to this important issue. 258 pages, including an index. The black cover shows some rubbing. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

8 Reeves, John The St. Matthew Passion: a Text for Voices
0802839002 / 9780802839008; Musical settings of the story of Christ's Passion, as recounted by St. Matthew, date back to antiquity. First incorporated into the liturgy as a chant for Palm Sunday, the Passion text of St. Matthew developed over the centuries into elaborate settings for choir and soloists with instrumental accompaniment. J. S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion is widely acknowledged as the pinnacle of this tradition and, even more, as one of the greatest achievements of Western music. Award-winning poet John Reeves here offers 21 verse meditations directly inspired by Bach's masterpiece. Written and arranged to be heard as well as read, these eloquent poems capture Reeve's own experience of hearing Bach's work performed in various cities around the world. The poems are introduced and linked by short passages of prose. These identify the cities visited by Reeves, annotate Bach's response to the Passion as a believer and composer, evoke the various church liturgies commemorating the Passion, and relate each poem to the point reached in the Passion story. The inclusion of a fine English translation of Bach's libretto at the end of the volume adds value to Reeve's creative work. 108 pages, this is a beautifully-bound book with a translucent cover. The front inside flap corners have been folded in a bit. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
