Beautiful Mercy

This month we started reading Beautiful Mercy by Matthew Kelly. The book goes through all of the traditional spiritual and corporal works of mercy with examples of how they are being lived today, and suggestions on how you could live them. Reading it together helps us to participate as a group in the Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis.

Scanning the Signs of the Times

Since August, our chapter has been studying Scanning the Signs of the Times by O'Meara and Philibert. Each chapter covers one of the French Dominican theologians of the twentieth century. The essays are a readable introduction to the original thought of each Dominican and a review of how their contributions were received by the Church, with an emphasis on how their thoughts influenced the thought and documents of the Second Vatican Council.
