Church Life Journal

Day behind here, but still worth the read, especially knowing that this excerpt comes from a book-length essay Hemmerle gave to Hans Urs von Balthasar for his birthday! How sweet is that!

We read Church Life Journal every day and suggest you do, too.

In that Jesus Christ announces and brings the dominion of God, and in that we encounter this dominion in him, a radical, unreserved communication takes place between God and us. He himself shares in Jesus all of what is ours and all of what is his. Nothing of his is left outside the gift which he gives us in Jesus Christ; nothing of ours is left outside history, which is God’s own history.
--Klaus Hemmerle

What Can St. James Teach Us About Redemptive Suffering?

Shane Kapler, author of our new release “James; Jewish Roots, Catholic Fruits,” has written a three-part series on redemptive suffering.

The first part in that series is now up on Catholic Exchange! We highly suggest giving it a read, along with his new book.

#shanekapler #angelicopress #james #stjames #epistle #redemption #suffering #catholicbooks #catholicexchange

James places redemptive suffering, this revolutionary element of the gospel, right at the beginning of his letter. “Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you ...

Check out Brian Welter’s review of Angelico Press’ “Modernity as Apocalypse”, by Thaddeus Kozinski.

“Though Modernity as Apocalypse sketches out some very demanding philosophical issues, the author is not guilty of abstracting from the present. We get a very clear view of modernity’s spiritual battle with Christianity and the humanities as they have been traditionally passed on.“ -Brian Welter

Modernity as Apocalypse outlines and offers a tonic to idolatryThaddeus Kozinski’s provocative book on “sacred nihilism” provides analysis of the spiritual problem at the heart of modernity while suggesting the logos-centered life of virtue as the answer. February 6, 2021 Brian Welter Books, F...

Our top three “Lenten movies!” They are such favorites that we now have a yearly tradition of watching them.

Jesus of Nazareth is our Holy Week watch; it follows the life of Christ from the Visitation to the Resurrection. It is directed by Franco Zeffirelli and has an all-star cast.

The Flowers of St. Francis is a little more obscure but a delightful watch; A simplistic, moving look at the the life and teachings of St. Francis.

Lastly, Keys to the Kingdom! It depicts the story of a young priest who starts a missionary in China.

We hope you watch and enjoy them as much as we do! What are some of your favorite Lenten/Catholic movies?

Roland in Moonlight, David Bentley Hart — Angelico Press

We are excited to announce the release of “Roland in Moonlight” by David Bentley Hart!

Roland in Moonlight breaks new ground within Hart’s already astonishingly wide-ranging body of work. Eschewing the rigidity of the human either/or, Roland’s diagonal approach offers secret illuminations and hidden affinities, as all and sundry come into his purview: paganism, dreams, language, myth, politics, American Christianity, Indian metaphysics, Japanese aesthetics… But perhaps most of all, the book is a kaleidoscopic exploration of the nature of mind and consciousness.

This book is now available on our website! Go check it out to read even more on this, our newest release.

Sneak peek at our upcoming release “Roland In Moonlight” by David Bentley Hart.

“Roland in Moonlight” is a wholly unforgettable reading experience—a journey into the possible upon the wings of a heavenly discourse between man and beast, and the singular—indeed, blessed—rapport that guides their lives. It is impossible not to be swept along as Roland takes flight.

The Vulnerary of Christ, finally published for the first time more than 70 years after its author’s death, contains exceptional findings by French Catholic archaeologist and symbologist Louis Charbonneau-Lassay (1871–1946) on the five wounds of Christ: their symbolism, representations, and meaning in Christian art.

James: Jewish Roots, Catholic Fruits, Shane Kapler — Angelico Press

“James; Jewish Roots, Catholic Fruits”, by Shane Kapler is now available on our website ! Rather a perfect time for this, our newest release, as it is a perfect book to meditate on this coming Lent.

Shane Kapler looks at the epistle through the eyes of its first-century Jewish-Christian readers, unpacking its lavish content and showing how this inspired text has yielded, century after century, abundant fruit for the Church. Discover how:
• James, Paul, Peter, and John all agree in their teaching on justification
• A distinction was drawn between “works of the law” and works accomplished by grace
• Final salvation is a synergy of faith and graced works
• Our sufferings, when united to Christ’s, become conduits of grace for us and others
• Tradition acted as a source for the written gospels
• Social and economic justice are integral to Christianity
• The sacrament of the anointing of the sick effects spiritual and physical healing
• God responds in powerful, miraculous ways to the prayers of his holy ones

The hardcover for our newest reprint is now available!

“A polyglot and polymath whose mother was shot by Soviet police and who later wrote this work while bombs exploded around him in Cologne stood in a unique position to reflect on the degeneration of jurisprudence: the comprehensive understanding and practice of law in human society, the ‘art of the good and the equitable,’ which distinguishes civilization from barbarism. In this concise overview Tomberg encapsulates the ideal, idea, and concept of law: the eternal law, the natural law, and positive law, inseparably interlinked. His critique of the Western fall from theonomy into rationalism and finally into positivism is balanced by a hopeful vision of how the study and exercise of law might be invigorated by humanistic and Christian wisdom.”

— PETER A. KWASNIEWSKI, author of Reclaiming Our Roman Catholic Birthright

Valentin Tomberg’s “The Art of the Good” is now available on our website and Amazon!

This dissertation marks an important turning-point in Tomberg’s life. Humanistic studies which he had presented during his thirties are now replaced by a strict orientation towards a Platonic model of knowledge, and a medieval, so-called “realism of universals.” Tomberg was led to regard the modern path away from a natural law founded upon religion and towards a legal positivism oriented towards power, as a dismantling of the different levels of law and, at the same time, a loss of both the idea and the ideal of law.

Sneak peek at our newest upcoming reprint!

A little about the author:
Valentin Tomberg was born in St. Petersburg on February 26, 1900. Having been baptized a Protestant, he entered the Greek Orthodox church shortly before 1933, and, in 1945, became a Roman Catholic. In 1938 Tomberg emigrated to the Netherlands and began actively to lecture on Christological topics. At the beginning of 1944 he moved to Cologne, where he was awarded the title of Doctor of Law for the dissertation here published in English for the first time.

Yesterday, due to a day trip up to Windham Mountain, we missed the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas; an especially important saint to us on account of being patron of academics and publishers!

Here is a favorite quote of ours..although difficult to choose as there are so so many!

Another one is “Beware of the person of one book.” 😉

“The Heart of Man” by Gerald Vann is now available on our website here: https://www.angelicopress.org/the-heart-of-man ! This is the second reprint we have published by Vann, the first being “The Seven Swords”, released back in Fall.

Father Vann has much that is wise and helpful to say about life today in all these spheres, summed up in the reminder, so often needed, that any plan for mankind must fail that does not take into account the essential factor of the state of the heart of man.

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.
For those who would care to join us, tomorrow begins our November reading and discussion session for Proclus' Elements of Theology. In just 7 short propositions per day, you, too, can enter into knowledge of the divine realities. Whether you're well acquainted with this seminal work of metaphysics or will be encountering it for the first time, you are most welcome.
