Protecting Minors from Sexual Abuse

Author(s): Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

Language: English
  Protecting Minors from Sexual Abuse: A Call to the Catholic Faithful in Canada for Healing, Reconciliation, and Transformation arises as a response by the Catholic bishops of Canada concerning the need to update and expand their efforts at safeguarding pastoral environments and to improve responses to complaints regarding the sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults. Drawing on the experience of the leadership of the Catholic Church in Canada, on the expertise of numerous professionals, on the insights of victims, and on the latest canonical requirements of the Holy See, the present document will be an indispensable resource to those – be they clergy, consecrated persons, or laity – who, in view of their specific ecclesial responsibilities, hold positions of authority and have oversight of pastoral staff and volunteers. This document will also be of interest to the Catholic faithful at large as they participate in the Church’s efforts to undergo the purification and transformation which have become urgent in order for the Gospel to continue to be faithfully and credibly proclaimed and lived out in every community and at all levels of society.

In the Womb

Author(s): National Geographic Channel

Language: English
  Using ground-breaking photography, state-of-the-art special effects and amazing 4D scans National Geographic's In The Womb takes us on a series of remarkable journeys into the extraordinary world of fetal development. We witness the moment a single fertilized egg splits in two to create identical twins; explore the intricate processes that occur in the womb to shape two supreme predators - the lion and the domestic cat; reveal the first stages of life of the dog and its common ancestor the wolf; and encounter reproduction and gestation at its most extreme including the embryonic shark that turns cannibalistic and the wasp that hijacks the bodies of others for the development of its young. From the bizarre to the breath-taking, four unique journeys that unlock the secrets of fetal development and reveal life in the womb – as it’s never been seen before.

Martin de Porres: A Saint of Our Time

Author(s): Monahan, Joan

Language: English
  Martin de Porres is often summed up with a few sweet words about his healing powers and love of animals. Four hundred years ago, the illegitimate son of a freed slave and a Spanish nobleman, Martin challenged society's ideas about humanity, social justice, and the love of God. This new biography paints an in-depth portrait of the Dominican lay brother, revealing his steel will, depthless compassion, and intense love of God.

Book Liturgy and Doctrine

Author(s): Davis, Charles

Language: English
  "This is a work of really splendid and exciting scope. It should prove thrilling to the theologian and will make no greater demands on the layman than a serious book on any specialized subject. There is little or no technical language, but with exactness and economy of words the new concepts, not yet captured in text-book phrases, are expressed in clear English. It is just the mingling of the warmer streams of contemporary biblical, liturgical and catechetical thinking with the familiar currents of speculative theology that gives the wonderful wholeness and balance which make the Christian themes here presented so heartening." - Review from the Irish Independent
