Fi News – New FI Book: “Come, Holy Spirit”

Thursday, February 28th, 2008
Come, Holy Spirit ??

Ave Maria!

Update: Online Preview Available

The latest book from the FI’s publishing house,?the Academy of the Immaculate, Come Holy Spirit, by the revered Don Dolindo Ruotolo has just rolled off the printing presses last week. Already a classic in Italy, Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, FI translated this book into English for the first time. Focusing on the Sacrament of Confirmation, it explains the role of the Holy Spirit in our own sanctification as well as in our endeavors to evangelize others. Come, Holy Spirit is a help for those preparing for Confirmation as well as for those who are trying to apply what they already received in the Sacrament. In a time of so much confusion in regard to the Charismatic Gifts of the Holy Spirit, this traditional, brief?and inspiring presentation of the subject should be invaluable.

It is a small?sized book like our very poular JOEL (Jesus Our Eucharistic Love). The list price is just $5.00, 176pp, 32 books per box. And?like JOEL this book promises to be a big seller:

Don Ruotolo combines solid theology with inspiring meditations. Few books strike the balance like this one: clear and deep, profound and practical. Come, Holy Spirit deserves to become a spiritual classic in the English-speaking world, not just Italy.

Scott Hahn, PhD, Professor of Theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Video – Golden Thread #2 – Ven. Maria of Agreda and Vatican II

Theology Video #2 – Fr. Peter presents Ven Mother Agreda and her Vatican II mariology>>> Play

Ave Maria!

Watch this video by Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner, FI, STD as he gives a short biography of Mother Mary of Agreda and how her marian theology, which is so often portrayed as being opposed to Vatican II, is actually very much in line with it, anticipating the Council by 300 years.

Fr. Peter highlights a new book on this subject, Venerable Mother Agreda and the Mariology of Vatican II by Enrique Llamas, OCD, STD of the International Pontifical Marian Academy, which has been published by the Academy of the Immaculate. A heated discussion on this topic is being carried on at Mark Shea’s blog under the post “… skeptical that … ‘Mary suffered no birth pains'”. A comment by Sandra Miesel of Crisis Magazine about halfway down the comment stack started it off.

PDF samples of our new book are available online: the Table of Contents and Foreward (pp i-xii) and the first two sections of the Introduction (pp 1-15)

English translations of Mother Mary of Agreda’s works can be purchased from Tan Books, both full version and abridged.

Ave Maria!
