The Dynamics of Liturgy
Joseph Ratzinger’s Theology of Liturgy
Fr Vincent Twomey

“Fr. Twomey is one of the foremost authorities on the theology of Joseph Ratzinger, and carries the distinction of having been a student of Professor Ratzinger.  He can thus be said to enjoy a ‘connatural’ understanding of the mind of Ratzinger.  What is distinctive about this work is hoe he walks the reader across the bridge between Ratzinger’s fundamental theology and his liturgical theology, including Ratzinger’s insistence on the cosmic character of the liturgy. Few commentators on Ratzinger’s theology approach their subject with  
Fr Twomey’s breadth of cultural experience.”
--Tracey Rowland, Ph.D., St. John Paul II Chair of Theology, University of Notre Dame (Australia)

The Moral Wisdom of the Catholic Church
Fr Robert Spitzer, SJ

“Fr. Spitzer has done the seemingly impossible.  He has taken the sprawling array of moral controversies and synthesized them into a coherent whole.  He has taken matters besotted by rage and sobered them with reason.  He taken matters distorted by passions and conformed them to the heart of Christ.  If you are looking for sanity and sanctity, then you need to read—and live—this book.” --Fr. Robert McTeigue, S.J., Author, Real Philosophy for Real People

Women Mystics
Fr Louis Bouyer, CO

Studies those women whose influence and sustained tradition have been decisive in working an interior renaissance which the Church has need of today as yesterday.
