“A Child’s Christmas in Williamsburg” by Joseph Nicolello is now available to order!

Moving, with a curious mix of family members, from Christmas Eve in Manhattan into Christmas Day in Caitlin’s sparse Williamsburg apartment, “A Child’s Christmas in Williamsburg” discloses, through an examination of the first coming last, and the last coming first, how our issues are less modern than they are recurring aspects of our ever-present origins. It is about childhood and parenthood, the steadfast rejection of rampant materiality, and a vindication of life and letters. And it is a prose poem of the first order to New York City.

“The World as God’s Icon” by Sebastian Morello, is a scholarly but accessible enquiry into the sources of Aquinas’s thought, and the reception of his realism in the work of the ‘Existential Thomists’ as they uncovered Aquinas’s Neoplatonic themes;

A perfect pick for anyone interested in pursuing a deeper understanding of the Catholic philosophical tradition.

Angelico Press is pleased to announce that our reprint of “Hymns to the Night” is now available!

Novalis’s Hymns to the Night is not only one of the seminal documents of German Romanticism as well as of modern poetry and poetic experimentation, it is also one of the landmarks of Sophiology.

Mabel Cotterell is sensitive both to Novalis’s poetics and to his mysticism, the ideal translator of his work. She captures the exquisite artistry and startling freshness of Novalis’s words in language filled with grace and light.

10/24/2020

Just a reminder that “The World as God’s Icon” is available to purchase as of Wednesday this week!

“The arguments developed by Saint Thomas Aquinas remain not only relevant to the discipline of philosophy, but also decisive in determining how we should think about some of the deep questions of our day. Morello has done an excellent job in showing this to be so, and in communicating his passion for a philosophy that remains as relevant today as it has been for seven centuries.”—Sir Roger Scruton, former Professor at the University of Buckingham

The World as God’s Icon is a scholarly but accessible enquiry into the sources of Aquinas’s thought, and the reception of his realism in the work of the “Existential Thomists” as they uncovered Aquinas’s Neoplatonic themes. In this short but compelling work, the key aspects of Aquinas’s Platonism are brought together to convey a broad ontology, which ultimately presents creation as an icon of God. This is accomplished on three fronts. First, the received notion that Aquinas ought to be understood as a pure—albeit Christian—Aristotelian is challenged, by arguing rather that he was an heir to a much richer synthesis of Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy, which he brought to perfection in his own thought. Second, it is made startlingly clear that it is in fact Neoplatonic ontology that provides the framework for Aquinas’s thought insofar as it reveals the world as an icon of God, allowing for a new way of looking in wonder at creation, while providing a certain “praeambula fidei.” Third, we are offered a way of thinking about aesthetics that follows from the metaphysical view advanced.

Available now from Angelico Press!

Love and Truth (Amour et Vérité, 2011), by Jean Borella, is the revised and recast second edition of a book first published in France in 1979 under the title La charité profanée (The Desecration of Charity). The original idea for this book sprang from the author’s bewilderment and dismay at seeing, in the immediate aftermath of the Second Vatican Council, theologians and other Church members call into question or reject some of the fundamental dogmas of the Christian faith, all in the name of a love for humanity.

Angelico Press – To deepen our knowledge of the Catholic tradition. To find new ways of living our faith within that tradition.

A new release from our Catholic Traditionalist Classics series is available today!

"Representing both the common man and the educated of his day, Casini spares nothing and no one in his defense of cherished traditions and his critique of utopian innovations. Although the process of relentless aggiornamento churned on inexorably in spite of such protests, Casini’s work stands today as both a powerfully moving record of the struggles of the early traditionalist movement, caught by surprise in the maelstrom of Montini’s pontificate, and an exemplary exercise of the parrhesia or boldness that belongs to the baptized in Christ. The Torn Tunic was in its day a testimonial of profound love for tradition in the face of callous contempt; for readers over half a century later, it reads like a prophecy of better days to come, when the same tradition, surviving against all odds, would be rediscovered by new generations"

A new release from our Catholic Traditionalist Classics series is available today!

"The tale of an English girl who falls in love with the Catholic faith shortly before the Conciliar reforms of Vatican II, Judith's Marriage recounts the experiences of an unassuming young saint who must watch as the most profound aspects of her faith are stripped away. At turns lighthearted and profound, but never heavy-handed, this is a story of quiet strength and grace even as the joy of her conversion fades in the wake of upheaval in the Church."

“Today is the feast of St. Thérèse of Lisieux!

Did you know that six years ago to the day, Angelico Press published the ultimate portrait of the life, work and spirituality of St. Thérèse? The epic companion took twenty years of research to complete.

To this day, it is still one of our most beloved and prominent works.” 🌷 #thelittleflower

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCdUJLBpBYg Sergius and Bacchus were soldiers in the Roman army, attached to the household of the Emperor Maximilian. They were Christians. And they were lovers. But it was not for their sexuality these young men were canonized. It was for their faith -- one of history's most poignant ironies, given the church's unflinching campaign against gay love. When ordered to enter the Temple of Jupiter to participate in a sacrificial ceremony to the god, they refused.For this act of defiance, the lovers were stripped of their arms and badges of rank, dressed in women's clothing and led through the streets of Arabissus (near Comana in Cappadocia) -- for a Roman soldier, an abject humiliation.Then they were sent to Resapha in Syria (Augusta Euphratesiae in Mesopotamia), where they were tortured.Bacchus was whipped until his flesh was raw; he died October 1st AD290, confessing his faith in Christ. Sergius's faith faltered with the death of his lover, but was reinforced when Bacchus appeared to him in a vision saying, "I am still with you in the bond of our union." Sergius kept the faith; after torture, he was beheaded on October 7th AD290. Like his lover, he died a martyr to the new religion. The tomb of S. Sergius at Resapha become a famous shrine and was honoured by great gatherings of Christians because of the frequent miracles there. Sergius and Bacchus became the heavenly protectors of the Byzantine army, with the two Theodores, Demetrius, Procopius and George. Their "acts" are preserved in Latin, Greek and Syria. In AD431, Bishop Alexander of Hierapolis built a magnificent church in his honor. In 434, the town of Resapha was raised to the rank of an episcopal see and was named Sergiopolis and soon became one of the greatest pilgrimage centres of the East. Many churches in many towns bore the name of Sergius (sometimes with Bacchus) and in the seventh century, a church was dedicated to them in Rome. During the Middle Ages, the relationship of Sergius and Bacchus was considered an exemplar of compassionate union, and possibly even marriage, based on agape (brotherly love) and mutual respect.
