Holy Week

Have a Happy Easter Everyone. I think I am going to be sheep like and do what many other bloggers are doing for Easter...not blogging. It's the beginning of the Easter Triduum, so much time ought to be devoted to prayer and such, and all the going to Church too :). I love this time of the year. That and my parents are coming over to Victoria for a couple of days, which will be nice.

Oh, and some news. Though it's not the full time work, I did get a part time job that I had been planning on taking on top of my full time job. I'm now the new Sacristan for the Cathedral here in Victoria. It means I'll probably be working 7 days a week, but it also means working at the Cathedral a bit, so I'm quite excited.

Again, have a Happy and Blessed Easter everyone.

That's fabulous, H.!!

I'm so happy you have the position. Even as PT work, it is a FT commitment.

If you could suggest a book that breaks down Catholicism in very easy terms, perhaps even a quick read, what would you suggest?

Don't say the Bible. I mean -Catholic- specific, ceremonies, symbols, hierarchies, etc. And probably not in the form of a tract, or what one studies for confirmation.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you too Kristi!

I would have to say the best book would be "Catholicism for Dummie"...the title may not seem attractive, but it does a great job at explaining the basics of the faith and it is easy to navigate. That and the priests who wrote it are very good priests.

I hope you have a blessed Easter!

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen! Allelulia

Great! Thanks for the recommendation. It's on the 'to-buy' list.

Other good books would be:

"Fundamentals of the Faith" by Peter Kreeft

"Catholic and Christian" by Alan Shreck

"The Catholic Sourcebook" by Fr. Peter Klein

"The Spirit of Catholicism" by Karl Adam

And if you're wanting some really tough but really good reading . . .

"Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma" by Dr. Ludwig Ott

Of those books, The Catholic Sourcebook is probably the easiest to navigate but with answers to all the stuff you'd probably want to know about Catholic liturgy, ritual, symbols, hierarchy, etc...
