  • By Philip Trower Published by Ignatius Press 1998, Softcover, 480 pages NOTE: There may be an additional charge, depending on your location, for shipping due to the weight of the book . "Through a large cast of historical and fictional characters, A Danger to the State relates one of the outstanding though little known dramas of modern history. In 1773, surrendering at last to a 20 year long campaign of intrigue and calumny, Pope Clement XIV suppressed the famous Society of Jesus, founded 200 years earlier by St. Ignatius of Loyola. Just sixteen years before the French Revolution, Europe's Catholic kings, threatening to take their countries into schism, pressured Pope Clement into destroying the strongest bulwark and the Church's most successful band of missionaries.What lay behind this apparent act of madness? There was no popular opposition to the Jesuits, and the Kings were mainly dupes. The driving force came from the writers and thinkers of the French Enlightemnent, agnostics and atheists that included a number of Europe's leading statesman among it's members. "Once we have destroyed the Jesuits," wrote Voltaire, "we should have easy work with the Church." The action revolves around the de Vallecas family, a distinguished Spanish family that have two sons in the Jesuit order one a missionary to the Jesuit Reductions in Paraguay, the other a novice in Spain during the efforts of suppression. This chronicle of political intrigue moves masterfully from the turbulent scenes in Madrid of the French anti-Jesuit forces battle to influence King Charles III and other Spanish leaders, to the serene setting of the Jesuit missions in Paraguay in their last days of glory and, finally, to Catherine the Great's Russia."

    By D. Vincent Twomey Published by Veritas 2003, Softcover, 220 pages In a wide-ranging and stimulating series of essays, drawing on the experience of the author's own Irish Catholic upbringing, and some fifteen years of studying, teaching and pastoral work abroad, Vincent Twomey comes to the conclusion that traditional Irish Catholicism was neither authentically Irish nor fully Catholic. But it can become both. The End of Irish Catholicism? argues that only a comprehensive cultural and intellectual renewal will enable the contemporary Church to rise effectively to the challenges posed by modern Ireland. This renewal will involve a new self-consciousness rooted in faith and drawing inspiration from our rich Irish tradition, and will call for new ecclesiastical structures to fit a much changed world. The topics discussed include Irish Catholic identity its nature and cultural expression, an exploration of how the modern Irish Church can recover her public, secular and divine 'voices'; an examination of possible new Church structures, a new approach to the relationship between Church and State, the so-called crisis of vocations - in reality a crisis of faith - and the standing of theology in the Irish Church.

    By Mother Mary Magdalen Taylor

    Published by The Neumann Press 1994, Hardcover, 190 pages No more opportune occasion could be chosen for a new edition of Tyborne than this Marian Year which is also the Centary of the Crimean War and that of the conversion of a great Englishwoman, who, in the sequel, became Mother Magdalen Taylor - Foundress of the Poor Servants of the Mother of God - who through the varied forms of their Apostolate were destined to play so important a part in the salvation of souls. The "Author of Tyborne" of the late 1850's was none other than the "Fanny Taylor" who "though under age" had volunteered to follow Florence Nightingale to the Crimea in 1854. The heated controversies following upon the "shocks" of the Oxford Movement had plunged many in England into still deeper darkness than before, but Fanny Taylor ever sought the "Light" in Cardinal Newman's sense of the word, until she found, on the shores of the Bosphorus, the precious gift of that Faith for which her country's Martyrs had died - that host whose blood had so copiously drenched the fallen tree that, after the spiritual drought of 300 years, it was fast blooming again in its "second spring". Fanny Taylor now saw that Faith heroically in action amidst the squalor of Eastern Hospitals and the example of the devotedness of the Catholic War Chaplains and of the Irish Nursing Sisters of Mercy was not lost on her seeking soul. It was to the spirit of the Irish Catholic soldiers, however, that she loved ever afterwards to attribute her conversion. Writing home for them to their dear ones from the Front, she learned of their simple faith in God and His Blessed Mother. She saw their Religion was everything to them. She saw that Christ in His Sacrament made heroes of His followers who could fearlessly face tragedy and death out of love for Him and because of their absolute faith in His promises, as later she will see in the case of Emend Campion who shall become the hero of Tyborne.... The late Father Philip Fletcher of the Guild of Ransom called Tyborne the "Pioneer work" on the English Martyrs, and Cardinal Logue confessed that he could not lay down the stay till the end. Let us hope that the readers of 1954 will equally enjoy Tyborne dressed as it is in all its Victorian garb and rich in graphic scenes as the theme develops. The hero, the hunt, the mock trial, the cell and the suffering have their counterpart in our own day, as they will ever have while the Church is on the Cross with her Divine Founder. (From the Preface to the 1954 Edition)
