In fact, this reviewer believes that the original'title "Propos sur l’Amour et la Grace” '(A Dis- course ou Love and Grace) would be more apt, since many of the vignettes are keyed to unmarried people, including widows, priests and cloistered Nuns. While much of the book is made up of short essays, there are several longer chapters which are especial- 1y rewarding. In the one on- titled "Unhappy Homes”, Father Caffarel charts a course for those to follow who wish to restore the hap— piness of their marriages, not only those which have “big” failures, but also those where hearts have passed “from fervor to a routine and lukewarm mediocrity.” One wonders how many mar- riages could have been saved by reading and following the wisdom contained in the ex- cerpts from the eighteen month diary of a woman who is being counseled on how to save a marriage threatened by unfaithfulness. We have experienced in the Aid for Altar Societies tive subjects discussed are the virtue ofEutrapelia, how' do you love your children, the rich, and the obligation to‘ be .competent. The chapter on widows stresses the meaning of “fiat” (let it be done), in a striking new concept of rwid— oWhood, which should bring consolation to all partners in marriage who have been, or will berleft alone. His discus- sion of the» Christian Family Movement should be of great interest to the advocates of that movement in this coun- try. especially since it is written about the founding of the movement and the basic prinicipals behind it. Father Caffarel’s writing ‘bn the re- lationship of the priest to the family is one on which it would do us well to ponder». “Happy are those who know how to find the priest, the unique priest, Jesus Christ— in the man in spite of his de- fects or his gifts." In this comparatively short book (178 pages) there is literally something for every- one, whether religious or laity in every walk of life. No one can leave this book with- out finding at least one thought which will make the reading of the whole worth- while. MJC FOR ALTAR SO- Sacrifice of the Mass and for CIETIES, by Louise M. Walsh, Bruce, Milwaukee, Wis, (91 pp), $1.00. ‘k A * Within the covers of. this small book there is given a complete formation on the altar, sanc- It tuary, and sacristy. It is writ- ten as a guide for beginners who ciety within their own parish; it is a manual that gives in a short book the things that all who work around the altar, sanctuary, and sacristy should sels, the furnishings, the vest» ments, and the linens is identi- fied and described. Details Preparations the administration of the Sacra- ments. It is a manual that Catholic laymen would be interested in because of its clear explanation of the altar and its furnishings. is a manual that could be given to the members of the sodality who work about the Sanctuary for its helpful sugges» tions for the care of the Sanc- tuary'and Sacristy. Section on Organizing An interesting section of the manual is devoted to the or- ganizing of an Altar Society and the constitution and bylaws of the Altar Society. People who work in the sanc- tuary should know about the In addition, the manual pre- furnishings of the church, and sents in full detail the prepara— tions necessary for the Holy this book very well describes these things. BJM Bender's ‘Digest,.....is. more widely. used (by, mankindéas a greeting than are handshak: dare-say most of‘our read- ers still prefer kissing.’.’ The book, however; folloivs the demands of logical think- ing. It is divided into four parts beginning with the of- ten-befogged distinction be- tween pnrity and modesty. Part two considers. a c t s which violate the pattern of marriage and purity, and part three gives the norm from which a prudent aprl sound judgment can be made in the matter of modesty. Finally part four presents as the fulfillment of the patterns in sex the seemingly opposite realities of marriage and vir- ginity. Here again Father Buckley clearly distinguish- es showing that virginity is not something negative but a positive act of giving, as is marriage. Some might object to the many long quotations which the author cites from .the works of learned theologians. At times they do seem a bit unnecessary, but in the main help to create the proper at- titudes on a difficult subject. The book makes a definite contribution to a subject which needs more under- standing in our times. PE | Mind an THE MIND AND HEART OF AUGUSTINE, Edited by J. M. Flood, Academy Library Guild, Fresno, Calif, (106 pp), $2.45. *‘k'k best known saints and it might be supposed that a new book about Augustine would be only a rewording of things we have already read.

I The book does two things: A 1) it introduces the reader to an existing situation with, real people involved and 2) it gives the reader the proper spiritual and social approach to a problem which has be- come so paramount in our day. In a comparatively few pages the author has .been‘ able to state a problem, show the impact of the emotions and conclude with a solution. This reviewer would have lik- ed to see an even deeper ex- planation of the Church’s . reasoning in this regard, yet it must be remembered that the style is in story or novel tones, hence an exact theolo- -gica1 reason is difficult to convey. As Maise Ward, who wrote the introduction to the book, stated, “I doubt if such a book could- come out of any country but America.” WIJ case here.

We feel his presence across the centuries in the selections from his writ- ings that Mr. Flood has includ- From the selection that the author has chosen we learn about his mother, Saint Monica, his early studies, his life as a a student, his contact with Saint Ambrose, the turning point in his conversion, his treatment of the Manicheans and other here— V . This ‘ cannot be classified as ~- a scholarly study offthe Sacred Scripture nor does,._i‘t pretend to be this. Various sections of the Bible are dismissed in ‘ modern language, written in some places but never disrespectful; humor- ous in. others,- but never. re- pulsively jocular; serious in_ others, but never ponderous to the degree of boredom. ~Such characters as Adam and Eve, Cain and ’Abel, Abraham, Moses, David, etc. are discuss— ed giving the reader an excel- lent understanding. of charac- ters they knew previously only by name. . For an introduction to the Bible, this book fits the bill, but the reader should not expect any deep explanation to some of the more apparent problems existing in the Sacred writings.

Rarely Wanders As is stated in the introduc— tion, and the book bears it out, the special feature of this bio- graphical sketch by Mr. Flood is that he wanders away from the authentic Augustine as rare- ly as possible. Thatis to say, he has hit upon a mean between biography and autobiography; and so much has the saint writ- ten that this is possible. The book is good to introduce the readers to the great Saint Au- gustine.

Father» Davis states that the reason for this is a lack of reading of the Sacred Scrip: tures and a true_ignorancel'of the part we are to play in the liturgy itself. ' ‘ Moves to Action The author has the knack of making his reader‘ feel as though Something should de~' finitely be done—and fortunate- ly, states justvhow this should be accomplished.‘ It is a book that can be un- derstood by most people because of its simple terminology and clear explanations. It is highly recommended. WIJ *wir THE SUNDAY GOSPELS by R. T. A. Murphy...O.P., Bruce Milwaukee pp), $5.00. The author is professor of Sacred Scripture at the Domini- can House of Theology in Dubu- que, la. In this book he gives the readers a clear, exegesis of the Sunday gospels, explaining in detail the Biblical readings that all Catholics are familiar with. Work ls Twofold This work is twofold - not only exegetical but practical as well, for‘ at the end of each of the Sunday gospels, Fr. Murphy gives special hardhitting appli- cations of the themes suggested by the particular text. Refreshing for Laity At first glance, the reader might feel that this was abook‘ merely for priests. Nothing could be further from the truth. An energetic reading on the part of the laity will prove most refreshing and extremely en- lightening. All the passages in the Sunday gospels that for years may have been difficult to understand now come to life in clear, lucid almost selfex- planatory language. Certainly the book will be an asset to priests in preparing their ser— mons, but to those Catholics who do not have a great deal of time for reading, THE SUNDAY GOSPELS is, indeed, just what the doctor ordered.

This is a spiritual book deal- ing specifically With the nature of and grace in the religious life. Special stress is placed on the doctrines of the Incarnation and the Mystical Body. The au- thors does “a creditable job of making possible a deep under- standing of the religious life in general and the vows of the re‘ ligious in particular. His book contains such topics as the way of poverty, the value of virginity as well as obedience and confidence in prayer. Although not difficult to read, this reviewer feels that it is ne- cessary to have s o m e back- ground in the Spiritual life in or- der to benefit properly from the. contents of this work. Yet, it cannot and should not be classi- fied as ponderous. The author has a style which is most pleas.» ant and readable. Points are discussed openly and frankly; there is little left to the spiritual imagination as _ it were. Whether or notit compares with the great masters in the spiritual life is of course ques- . tionable. Rather it is a modern' digestion of the greats in the spiritual life. Fortunately the result is understandable and en- joyable. derstand terminology ' explains what it is and what it means. The aim of the book is two fold -‘— helping the ecclesiastical craftsman and, gaining for everyone some insight into a deeper study of the beautiful picture language of the Church.

JVG MORE ABOUT: We Hold (Continued from page 1) and Fr. Murray shows that he has learned well in his reflec- tions on the American proposi- tion. Need for Public Philosophy The first and perhaps the most valuable part of this work deals with the need for a public philosophy in our free and pluralist American society. As the title indicates, the author is concerned with the nature of a national consensus on the truths we hold and must hold if Amer- ica is to maintain itself on a rational foundation as a society of free men. Parts two and three of the work treat in de- tail of a series of political prob- lems in the light of the public philosophy propounded in the first part. These range from the question of censorship to the morality of modern warfare. Intellectual Pleasure There are not many men whom it is an intellectual pleas- ure to read. For'this reviewer, John Countpey Murray is one such man. Even those who can- not accept his conclusions, be- cause they disagree radically with his premises, may yet find profit and pleasure in contact with a mind so profound, arti- culate and urbane. ‘ F.P.C., 9.1.
