Foreword by His Eminence Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor This essential reference catalogues the biographical history and significant events of all Roman Catholic diocesan bishops who have been in office since the Restoration of the Catholic Hierarchy in England and Wales in 1850, and in Scotland since the Restoration in 1878. The work has developed over a number of years into a comprehensive reference guide to over 300 men, ordained in the episcopal order, who have given their life in service to the Church.
This is an introduction to the World's major religions from a Catholic Perspective. There is no single standard textbook that outlines the official Roman Catholic theological position in relation to other religions which then explicates this orientation theologically and phenomenologically in relation to the four main religions of the world and the flowering of new religious movements in the west. The present project will cover this serious gap in the literature. After outlining the teaching of Vatican II and the magisterium since then (chapter one), each subsequent chapter will be divided equally between: an exposition of the history and features of the religion or movement being studied; and a serious theological analysis of these features, showing how these religions do have elements in common, as well as how they differ in fundamental ways from Catholicism.
Although largely unknown in his lifetime, Gerard Manley Hopkins was, Jill Muller contends, the 'heart in hiding' of Victorian Catholicism. Investigations of Hopkins's spirituality have too often detached his beliefs from their local habitation in a newly industrialized, historically anti-Catholic and increasingly secular England. This book restores the poet to his full intellectual and literary context by exploring his responses to the writings of his Catholic contemporaries, and by situating the preoccupations, dramas and disappointments of his life in the wider setting of Victorian Catholic culture.
Anthony Pryde was the pseudonym of Agnes Russell Weekes (1880-1940).
Not too long ago, I began to write letters to the editor whenever I felt the need to respond to criticism of my faith, my beliefs, my treasure, expressed in an article, column or letter to the editor. Before I knew it, I had written hundreds of these letters and had most of them published in local newspapers. There is some repetition of thoughts because these letters were not published every day. They are not scholarly treatises since I am not a theologian. You don't need to be a genius to read the teachings of the Catholic Church because they are clearly written in the Catechism. My Catechism is dog eared. Trust me. There is no question in my mind that I was guided in my efforts by the Holy Spirit to defend, explain and proclaim the teaching of the Church. I was raising my voice in words on matters that affect our lives and the common good. These are letters that represent my Catholic action. I hope you agree that words can often speak as loud as actions.
