Looking for Catholic Reads during the Pandemic?
There is a resurgence of Catholic writing happening in the Church, much of it hidden as Catholic authors struggle to find publishers, publishes struggle to navigate technology and reading habit shifts, and authors shift to self publishing. The bottom line is there is a lot of great new content, a lot of it faithful fiction, and members of the Catholic Writer's Guild are striving to bring it to you.
I've invited Guild members to submit their works for posting here to help you be aware of them. They will appear as individual posts.
Mine offerings are:
Catholic parables on the lost art of spiritual warfare.
(Sequel parables to the books below.)
Sin binds us through the generations. Everyday, we live with the results of the sin of Adam and Eve. The choices we make every day either grow pride or increase humility. Ida and Simon have just discovered they are pregnant and dreading what that will do for Ida’s life. The vision they experience in the night transforms them, and the world, and, if you dare, you.

A wild swashbuckling adventure of catechetical fiction and romantic courtship, “Defend the Tabernacle” defies genre. Unabashedly Catholic, this story will meet you on your own journey of the soul, wherever you are, and invite and challenge you forward in ways you didn’t know were possible. Dare you run forward in your own adventure?
Catharine is rock steady on course to become a nun. Bernard crashes through life with reckless abandon. Neither sees Saint Michael the Archangel coming, nor the collision their God-given mission and gifts puts before them. Being made in God’s image is never easy and is a lot to live up to.
Are you dating (or better yet, courting)? Have you ever dated or courted? Enjoy! This book is written to explore the amazing gifts of preparing for Sacramental Marriage as one’s path toward holiness.
“Defend the Tabernacle” also makes an excellent companion to teaching and learning Theology of the Body.
I am delighted to assure you all my books are true to the Roman Catholic faith and have been issued a Rescript by Bishop Michael J. Sheridan. “Rescript” is the term in use for the former term “Imprimatur.”
