Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry - Joseph Pronechen

Castel Gandolfo in the summer. The way to the Pope’s residence led over lonely country roads.   Read more...

Preface - Lisa Gottlieb

"This is an 'impossible' novel, in the sense that Lisa Gottlieb has managed to achieve something quite amazing.  At its deepest level, this novel is a microcosm of the human search for meaning and stability in an unstable world — the search for Christ in the midst of 'ordinary' lives.  Gottlieb shows us ourselves, and does so with honesty, affection, irony and wit. This is the work of a very, very gifted writer." - Michael O'Brien  Read more...

On the evening of October 16, 1978, when Pericle Cardinal Fellici announced that the Church had a Polish pope, an astonished world expected that it might take some time for the newly-elected successor of St. Peter to learn his job.

Prologue & The End of His Life - Michael O'Brien

Following is the Prologue and an excerpt from chapter one of The Father's Tale by Michael O'Brien. Of this book, Peter Kreeft writes: "This is a magnum opus in quality as well as quantity. All of O'Brien's large and human soul is in this book as in none of his shorter ones: father, Catholic, Russophile, Canadian, personalist, artist, storyteller, romantic. There is not one boring or superfluous page."  Read more...

Rachoff – A true story - Karl Joseph Friedrich

Reader, behold your hand. Sometimes I watch my own as I write; or as I hold it up, fingers spread, so that it gleams like a pale star against the dark background of books piled on my table.
