The Catholic Gentleman
 Living Authentic Manhood Today
Sam Guzman

"The word ‘gentleman’ has fallen into disrepute, along with the word ‘man.’ There is a connection. Gentlemen have become ungentlemanly in direct correlation to men becoming unmanly. It is a paradox that the word was traditionally applied to a man not immediately associated with gentleness. It was a word given to a knight. We need to bring back these knights. We need to bring back true gentlemen. Sam Guzman has given us something we desperately need: a valuable, readable guide to help make our young men into true men." —
Dale Ahlquist, from the Foreword, Author, G.K.Chesterton; Apostle of Common Sense

For Love of My People I Will Not Remain Silent
On the Situation of the Church in China
Cardinal Jospeh Zen

It has been recognized—and Pope Francis himself has confirmed—that the historic 2007 letter of Pope Benedict XVI "TO THE BISHOPS, PRIESTS, CONSECRATED PERSONS AND LAY FAITHFUL OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA" remains the magna carta of the Catholic Church in China. On the 10th anniversary of this letter, June of 2017, Cardinal Zen gave a series of eight lectures on the origin of the letter, the drafting process, and the content of the final text. In doing so, he gives an enlightening overview of the recent history of the Church in China and a clear description of the delicate relationship between the two Catholic communities.

Hans Urs von Balthasar
on the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises

An Anthology

This book will also be useful for the many students of Balthasar’s theology, as it maps out hidden strains of Ignatian spirituality that run unnoticed through his oeuvre. Finally, the book could also be of interest to anyone seeking to deepen his prayer life or come to grips with Catholic doctrine, for as the Swiss theologian himself says, the Exercises are not only a “great school of christocentric contemplation” but “an authentic, genuine interpretation of [the Church’s]

deposit of the faith.”

The Indissolubility of Marriage
Amoris Laetitia in Context
Matthew Levering

Levering says that numerous contemporary Catholic theologians and biblical scholars are mistakenly turning the indissolubility of marriage into contingent dissolubility based upon whether the spouses continue to act in loving ways toward each other. The sacrament’s gift of objective indissolubility is thereby undermined. Fortunately, the main interpreters of Amoris Laetitia, whose views have been approved by Pope Francis, insist that the Apostolic Exhortation does not change the doctrine of marital indissolubility in any way.

Rethinking Mary in the New Testament
What the Bible Tells Us about the Mother of the Messiah
Edward Sri

and J.R.R.Tolkien

The Seven Gifts of The Spirit of the Liturgy

Centennial Perspectives on Romano Guardini’s Landmark Work

Edited by Christopher Carstens

In his remarkable book, which Pope Benedict XVI claims began the liturgical movement in Germany, Guardini lays out seven core principles of the liturgical spirit, principles that the Second Vatican Council saw as integral to authentic liturgical reform. In this work, eight experts on the liturgy recall Guardini’s spiritual insights, explaining how these can deepen our liturgical understanding and practice today. The contributors are Bishop

Arthur Serratelli, Fr. Cassian Folsom, O.S.B., Dr. Michon Matthiesen, David Fagerberg, Fr. Daniel Cardó, Bishop James Conley, Fr. Emery de Gaál, and Susan Benofy. Guardini’s core liturgical principles—the objective, corporate, universal, symbolic, meaningful, beautiful, serious, and logical - inspired the renewal desired at the Second Vatican Council.
