Teachings for an Unbelieving World: Newly Discovered Reflections on Paul’s Sermon at the Areopagus
John Paul II
A meditation on Acts 17 where Paul speaks to the cultural elite of Athens after he observed an altar of an unknown god in the city. Quoting from both the Bible and the documents of Vatican II, John Paul II draws wisdom from the apostle’s mission to bring the truth of the Gospel to a culture of sophistication and disbelief, one not unlike our own.
The future pope reveals Paul’s memorable encounter as an enduring framework to boldly present the core truths of Catholic faith to those living under Poland’s communist regime. In so doing, JPII demonstrates how relevant Paul’s words are today and equips us to meet the challenges of proclaiming the faith.

Wheat and Tares: Restoring the Moral Vision of a Scandalized Church
Fr. Mitch Pacwa
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. The solution, he says, lies in the power of Jesus Death and Resurrection and the Apostles response to the Risen Lord: authentic conversion to faith in Jesus, which reorients our lives toward selfless service of others.
