OPUS OXONIENSE is available in a paperback volume of DUNS SCOTUS-PHILOSOPHICAL WRITINGS (by John Duns Scotus).

SUMMA FRATRI ALEXANDRI is discussed in another paperback called THE INFINITE GOD AND THE SUMMA FRATRIS ALEXANDRI by Meldon Wass. It's out of print, but used copies may be available in Amazon Marketplace or on that other website founded by the Republican nominee for governor of California.

"Republican" Meg Whitman? In the manner of Moore, what do you mean by that?

1.) The Bible

2.) Three catechisms: Trent, our current one and the Baltimore catechism

3.) Butler's "Lives of the Saints"

4.) The Summa

5.) A good traditional Missal for Mass - extraordinary form.

How, pray tell, will having a TLM missal help defend the faith?

Very simply because from the Sign of the Cross to the conclusion of the Last Gospel there are no theological errors in it.

Another good book for Catholics to own – “He and I” by Gabrielle Bossis. This will give wonderful nourishment of our spiritual needs. Beautiful! Even my Pentecostal Protestant mother bought a copy!

I just finished reading God's Human Face by Cardinal Schonborn. It has gret apologetic value with regards to the veneration of images.

Great question and great books I have read "The Imitation of Christ" by: Thomas A'Kempis. I thought it would be a difficult read but fooled me (laughs)

I'd love to read some of the books many of you mentioned like the Diary of St. Faustina and Jesus of Nazareth


I still read my childhood books that I (still) collect by Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D.

http://www.amazon.com/Lawrence-G.-Lo...0986507&sr=1-1

and by Rev. Jude Winkler, OFM

http://www.amazon.com/Jude-Winkler/e...0986693&sr=1-2

May I also add

"Story of a soul the autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux" by: Fr. John Clarke, OCD

" I believe in Love: a personal retreat based on the teaching of St. Therese of Lisieux" by: Fr. Jean C.J. d'Elbee

I also read Catholic Digest

http://www.catholicdigest.com/

Liguorian Magazine

http://www.liguorian.org/

Vision-Vocation Magazine

Great list! I first read “The Imitation of Christ” and St. Therese’s “Story of a Soul” when I was still in the Anglican Church. The latter book lead me to the start of a wonderful friendship with St. Therese. I own both now. The “Imitation” happened to be St. Therese’s favourite book after the Gospels. Another lovely book I read back then and managed to get second-hand from a friend, is the “Flowers of St Francis”.

The name “Lovasik” sounds familiar. There was something he wrote which I remember reading and being blessed by; I think a quote. I can’t remember now…it may have been about the Eucharist, but I can’t be sure…

”Understanding the Mystery of the Mass”, by Fr. Matthew Buettner. (Queenship publications)
An amazing explanation of the Mass, concisely written. SUPER reading!

Matthew,

I see that you are a newcomer to CAF, and If I am correct you are a recent convert? ( I seem to remember something about that in one of the posts.)

I urge you togo to the following URL to find out what the Church's thoughts on it are.

www.ewtn.com/library/scriptur/valtorta.txt

The article was written by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, an internationally respected biblical scholar,

Also, the poem has never received a required "Imprimatur" (Permission to print) and was formally condemned by the Vatican at least 40-50 years ago as you will see if you read Fr. Pacwa's article.

God Bless.....

Bussi
