Since that date hundreds of thousands of women and children of every nationality have entered its portals, to withdraw from the tumult of the world in the exercises of a retreat, and to share the apostolate of prayer with the Religious.

The Rising Storm: An Analysis of the Growing Conflict over the Political Dilemma of Roman Catholics in America

Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Ever since American complacency was shattered by our discovery of the national disunity which had crept upon us during the last generation, this country has been engaged in a self-analysis which is probably without parallel in history. An incalculable amount of time and thought has been spent on the effort to diagnose and prescribe - or to prescribe without diagnosis. Yet there is one phase that has barely been touched, and most inadequately. Traces of its presence are to be fround in almost every discussion, and a realization of it is widespread, yet only one American has undertaken even to state fully this cause of discord, much less to analyze it and determine its weight, influence and menace. It is time that this be done, for it is inevitable that before the discussion is ended, and the diagnosis completed, all hypocrisies will be thrown aside and the question brought down to fundamentals. This is one of those fundamentals. It is the attitude of the twenty-three million American Catholics toward a civilization purely Protestant in its origins, philosophy and institutions, and their effect upon it. This is the subject of this book.." xviii + 345 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Frean, C.SS.R., Rev. W.  
Blessed John Neumann: The Helper of the Affliicted
 Picture
Publisher: Majellan Press, 1963 Ballarat, Victoria, AUSTRALIA.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "This is the remarkable and intensely interesting story of a poor student, who left his native country ijn Europe with barely enough francs to pay his passage money on an emigrant ship to America; who landed in New York, in the year 1836, a stranger in a strange land, with one dollar in his pocket, but with a consuming love for God, and a consuming zeal for the salvation of souls in his heart, together with an unshakable trust in God's Providence. Within seventeen days of his arrival he was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Dubois of New York who was badly in need of priests to care for the migrants who were arriving in thousands every month on America's eastern seaboard and making their way into the vast interior to build new homes for themselves and to lay the foundations of a great nation. Generally known as the Little Priest, he laboured single-handed in a parish of nine hundred square miles of wild forest and swamp in the great lake country around Erie and Ontario. The first morning he offered Mass there, his church had neither a floor no a roof, and he had not presbytery. A stone thrown by some boys landed on the altar during the Holy Sacrifice. Meeting some of the Redemptorist Fathers, who were also pioneers in this work, he entered the Redemptorist Congregation, becoming the first novice to be received by them in the United States of America. After working for ten years as a Redemptorist, and becoming Vice-Provincial Superior in the U.S.A., he received a formal command from Pope Pius IX to accept the Bishopric of Philadelphia without appeal. When he arrived as Bishop in Philadelphia in 1852, he found two parochial Catholic schools established there; when he died there in 1860, he had established nearly one hundred. At the time he was appointed Bishop-elect, Archbishop Francis Patrick Kenrick wrote to Professor George Allen of Philadelphia, 'You will love him for your spiritual father. He is so full of kindness and so holy..I have no doubt he will be universally loved. His holy and mortified life, his humility, and his sympathy won the hearts of the people; and after his death, so marked were the favours received through his intercession that many thought he was God's chosen instrument for consoling the afflicted. Preliminary steps for his canonization were soon begun. In February, 1963 the proclamations for his Beatification were issued, the 23rd of June being fixed for the official solemnity. On the death of Pope John JXXIII the date of the beatification was postponed, leaving a new date to be fixed by Pope Paul VI." xi + 288 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition.

Hisrich, Sister Maria Thecla and Unger, Father John M.  
A Sermon in Sculptured Stone and Jeweled Glass: Sacred Heart Church
 Picture
Publisher: Sacred Heart Church, 1976 Pittsburgh, PA.
Book. Book condition: Good to Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall SIGNED on front endpaper: "Enjoy it -- / Father Unger / and'/ Sister Maria Thecla". "..The priest-builder, Thomas Francis Coakley, already in this life must have realized the special mission which God had committed to him..Sacred Heart Church is truly a symbolic expression of Catholic teaching, a compendium of Christian virtues, a sermon in sculptured stone and jeweled glass. An explanation of the architecture and fenestration of the Church and the hidden spiritual and theological meaning attached to every inch of its fabric appeared in numerous booklets and pamphlets written by Father Coakley, in various brochures and church bulletins. In order to preserve this priceless material, scattered in many sources, and make it more accessible to present and future generations, it has been carefully arranged, meticulously edited, more thoroughly developed, copiously illustrated, and published in one volume. For those who knew Father Coakley, the pages will often echo the familiar sound of his voice as words and phrases, in a poetic style and rhetoric all his own, are repeated in the story of his 'dream church.'.." 132 pages. Book is in GOOD to VERY GOOD condition; some wear to cover; binding tight; text pages clean.
