Instead of “The Fault in Our Stars…”

Filed under: Saints and Blesseds — Fr. John Larson @ 3:34 pm

young adults should be reading Young Faces of Holiness.

These are true stories… not fiction! Real young folks showing heroic virtue! Some are saints and blesseds in the Church.

But, this advise does not have huge marketing machines backing it up.

Ergo, it is completely ignored.

However, I am used to this.

Bl. Chiara Luce Badano, pray for us.

The Marian Person by Fr. Joseph Kentenich

Filed under: Catholic Devotions,Schoenstatt,Texts in Mariology — Fr. John Larson @ 3:03 pm

Purchase info: buy here.

This little book is worth its weight in gold. As a Marian of the Immaculate Conception (which is not related to the Schoenstatt movement, but we can certainly appreciate it), I am just blown away by the profound insights of Fr. Joseph Kentenich.

The book consists in conferences from 1924 and two sermons from 1965. They work together quite well. The key to this book is the definition Fr. Kentenich gives of the “Marian person:”

The Marian person is the person who understands as deeply as possible, in the spirit and light of faith, Mary’s role in the work of redemption, and allows her to permanently impact his practical life even to the last consequence, so as to become a holy apostle (pg. 21).

Anyone devoted to the Blessed Virgin should read this little book.
