I have the one on Dominic. I agree that it is very helpful.

Lots of great saints were like that. St. Margaret Mary Alacoque did some very extreme penances as well and on many occasions was ordered to stop by her superior. Read some of her writings if you want to be disturbed by someone's idea of penance. As was suggested above, they were different times and thankfully we no longer act that way. It is also a good reason that any penance, mortification, etc. should always be done under the guidance and supervision of a qualified spiritual director.

Regarding St. Catherine, I would simply suggest skipping those parts if they bother you and focus on her spiritual teachings instead. To be honest, those things bother me as well. Disciplining ourselves through penance and denying our impulses is one thing, but I cannot wrap my head around the idea that God, who is love itself, would want us to hurt ourselves in His name.

Peace,

LOL, I love how you wrote that in small font.

Even if you don't become a Doctor of the Church, you can become a Doctor of your parish.

Yes it does. I actually saw and interview with Fr. McDermott on EWTN Live with Fr. Pacwa where he discusses the process of writing the book.

Here is the link if you are interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvlA9FBAk24

Also, here is another one that I haven't watched but might be helpful as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek872...feature=relmfu

Okay. I just purchased:

Praying with Dominic (Companions for the Journey)

Catherine of Siena: Spiritual Development in Her Life and Teaching - Thomas McDermott;

Saints Francis of Assisi and Therese of Lisieux, My Companions on the Journey: Book I (not sure how this series differs from Companions for the Journey)

So I have the Dominicans, Franciscans and Carmelites covered.

That should keep me busy for a little while.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Nice!

I wish I was progressing through my stack of books as fast as you. However, I am trying to divide my reading time half and half between the books you see in this thread and my study Bibles. A large part of the Dominican tradition is dedication to the study of Sacred Scripture, so to keep making progress in that area is very important.

I often wish that the Order would come out with a Bible commentary series in the Dominican tradition. That, would be an awesome resource for the faithful. Perhaps I will mention that to the Master when he comes to our Diocese in the spring...

One thing I would add on the book by Fr. McDermmot, OP which I forgot until I watched the video I posted above, is that in addition to her dictation of the Dialogues, much of the material for his book comes from St. Catherine's personal letters (approx. 300 or so) and also from the writings of Blessed Raymond, OP of Capua who was St. Catherine's confessor and friend.

Fr. McDermott's intent, is to give a presentation of St. Catherine's spirituality from the totality of her writings and her manner of living the gospel as recorded by others such as Master Raymond. I believe he has been highly successful in his endeavor.


TrueLight, I believe you are going to absolutely LOVE this book! I can't wait to hear your reviews of it when you are done.


Peace,

I'm just a fast reader.

When I was a teenager, I used to read like 5 novels a week.

I do a lot of Bible reading and when I don't have time to use a book, I read it on my iPhone.

I have been debating on whether to get an Ignatius study bible or the Navarre. I'm sure there is a thread on Bibles somewhere.

I have the vanilla Ignatius Bible. The RSV Second Edition (for Catholics) is an outstanding translation, gazillions better than the NRSV.

The Ignatius Study Bible has only the New Testament, and the commentary is from Scott Hahn. I got it for my wife for Christmas, so I can let you know what she thinks of it.

Oh wow. I had no idea the commentary was from Scott Hahn. Okay, I'm looking forward to her opinion!

That sounds about like me in terms of reading. As for the study Bibles, I both the Ignatius NT and the whole Navarre series. I highly recommend them both.

That is the whole Bible itself sans study notes. This one is the one you are looking for: http://www.amazon.com/Ignatius-Catho...ref=pd_sim_b_5

Yeah, the red covered one is the whole Bible with no notes. The black covered one is the one with the study notes.
