Wheat and Tares: Restoring the Moral Vision of a Scandalized Church
Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ
Fr. Pacwa brings consolation to all those who have been abused, wounded, or scandalized by the wickedness of priests and bishops. He takes you on a reassuring exploration of the Gospels to show how Christ anticipated the sins of the clergy and the hierarchy and gives us examples of how to deal with them spiritually emotionally, rationally, and practically.
Fr. Mitch reinforces what Christ's parables teach us: that good and evil will co-exist in the Church, and that spiritual blindness will affect the moral life of the clergy and the lay faithful alike.

Eight Popes and the Crisis of Modernity
Assaults on the dignity and rights of the human person have been central to the ongoing crisis of the modern era in the last hundred years.
This book takes a searching look at the roots of this problem and the various approaches to it by the eight men who led the Catholic Church in the twentieth century, from Pope St. Pius X and his crusade against "Modernism" to Pope St. John Paul II and his appeal for a renewed rapprochement between faith and reason.
Thus, it offers an interpretation of recent world events viewed through the lens of an ancient institution, the papacy.

Conciliar Octet: A Concise Commentary on the Eight Key Texts of the Second Vatican Council
Fr. Aidan Nichols O.P.
In this work Dominican scholar and writer Aidan Nichols maintains that the Council texts must be interpreted in the light of their genesis, not their aftermath.
They must be seen in the light of the public debates in the Council chamber, not the hopes (or fears) of individuals behind the scenes.
On this basis, he provides a concise commentary on the eight most significant documents produced by the Council, documents which cover pretty comprehensively all the major aspects of the Church’s life.
