I have noticed in the past weeks that my blog traffic has spiked once again. While I have no idea why people read my blog (ahem), it seems that quite a few more people have found there way here, and are tending to stick around. Hurray! You like me! You really, really like me! I'm the king of the world! Attica, Attica! (OK, not that last one).
So I seem to have new readers. Welcome to my world! Do you know that I have books and CDs for sale? No? Let me tell you about them.
First is my latest one: The I-Choice: Staying Human in a Digital Age. This is my response to our technological culture and the subtle and not-so-subtle effects it is having on all of us. People who have read it have given me great feedback on it, that besides giving food for thought about the devices we use and how they affect us, it also invites us to contemplate just what it means to be a human being anyhow - what is this business of humanity, and what is the good of it?
Second is Going Home, an exploration of God's mercy in the writings of Catherine de Hueck Doherty, meditating on the parable of the prodigal son. People seem to be finding it truly helpful in contemplating and deepening their faith in the mercy of the Father. Next:
In a similar vein, The Air We Breathe is all about Mary in the writings of Catherine Doherty. It was my first book, and both subject and title came to me directly in answer to prayer. Hopefully the rest of the book did, too, at least a little bit. For the more innerleckually minded, there is:
This one is my thesis, and the reason this blog exists. I ended up with hundreds of quotes from Joseph Ratzinger on my laptop and 'information wants to be free.' So... here we all are, 700+ posts later. Finally:
For those of you who can't read, ten talks on the basics of Christian spirituality. Perfect for the car, and for parish study groups. Proven to be effective!
So there - something to do with all those piles of spare cash you have lying around your house. Seriously, and I know it's a bit lame for me to have to say this, but there's some good stuff here, so hope you can buy a bit and enjoy it.
