Instruction on the Study of the Fathers of the Church in the Formation of Priests
The writings of the Fathers of the Church are considered part of the deep tradition of the Catholic faith. These writing span the period from the first to the seventh centuries.

This “Instruction” by the Congregation for Catholic Education is to encourage the study of the Fathers in seminary curriculums. It explains the reasons why the Fathers are relevant, and the particular benefits to be gained from studying them.

It offers information on how to organise courses in the Fathers, the type of sources to be used, and how to present the material in a classroom situation.

THE LIVING ROSARY
Bishop Hubert Bucher

Tradition tells us that the Rosary was given by Our Lady to St Dominic over 800 years ago, and that Dominic propagated its use. Over the centuries Catholics all over the world have known and used the Rosary. In recent years its use has declined as a family prayer.

“The Living Rosary” is a booklet that promotes devotion to this once-popular prayer. The author, the Emeritus Bishop of Bethlehem in South Africa, is a life-long devotee of the Rosary, and wants to counteract the contemporary lack of appreciation for the Rosary.

He proposes a new method for the Rosary, i.e. a Rosary group or circle. This means that a minimum of five people gather to pray, say, the Joyful Mysteries. Each one takes one decade (only) of the Rosary, and says that same decade for a week. For the second week each of the five takes a different decade, and again says that decade only for a week. At the end of five weeks the five members will have completed the full five decades of the Rosary.

When the five decades have been completed after five weeks, the members of the group move on to the next mystery, i.e. the Sorrowful Mysteries. And so on until the four Mysteries (Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, and Light) are completed.

Silvano Fausi

"Unfolding the Gospel of Mark: A Narrative Catechesis, Part 2" is the second and final part of a series of commentaries on Mark's gospel.

The commentary follows an ancient method of meditation on Scripture, the Lectio Divina.

The author, Fr Silvano Fausti, is a Jesuit professor of Theology with over twenty years experience of proclaiming the Word of God in a variety of contexts.

The work is a dialogue with the One who was sent in order that we might know, love and serve Him with joy.
