This is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to put together the events and issues in the Catholic church pre- and post- Vatican II.

This is probably the only place you will find a favorable or "fair" account of the infamous Father Feeney, written by a former colleague, Avery Dulles.

In fact you find here favorably reported Fathers Coughlin and Fulton Sheen and other media stars whose main purpose was placing a religious stamp of approval on runaway capitalism and convincing the masses that fair wages, health care, educational opportunities and other equity issues of social justice were tools of the red devil, unsanctioned by the church.

Sort of like Glen Beck does today.

But this aspect of the role of these soft soap salesmen for capitlaism goes barely mentioned, merely reported in passing as one aspect of their preaching.

As does their fashionable anti-Semitism.

A favorable article on Feeney, and that one by Dulles?

OMG!

Not even a too brief article by the learned and Reverend Father Richard P. McBrien a too brief treatise on sin and guilt by Roman Catholic moral theologian the Reverend Father Charles E. Curran saves this patchwork from fraying into futility.

All of the very many articles are far too brief. One does better to read the excellent The HarperCollins Encyclopedia of Catholicism, Lives of the Saints: From Mary and St. Francis of Assisi to John XXIII and Mother Teresa and

Fr. Hollenbach, continuing his lifelong commitment to articulate Catholic human rights theology, has brought together essayists "in the trenches" of forced migration. I am especially interested, a an Arizona resident, in Part V. which addresses the claims of economic migrants.

I'm going to have to say at the beginning of this review that the title RECLAIMING CATHOLICISM: TREASURES OLD AND NEW is somewhat misleading. Many of the contributors could be among a who's who of Catholicism, so the insights and entries are excellent, but the title, along with a summary by the publisher, made me think it was almost a "how to" to bring back some of the distinctive Catholic practices that have been lost since Vatican II, and to do so in a way that is not a nostalgic trip but a concrete way to make some of what is lost a vital part of the spiritual lives of people today. That's not exactly what I found in these pages though I did find the book helpful, informative, and enjoyable.

Most of the authors share a memory of their faith from childhood, and in most of the cases, the memory would be prior to Vatican II. Family rosaries, first confessions, devotion to Mary, praying to the saints, Catholic schools, stories of the priests and nuns all populate the essays found in this book. What the book offers is an appreciation of what the devotions and practices had to offer rather than a critique or an attempt at humor which can be all too common when reflecting on the Church of old. Some authors do advocate returning to some of the practices, but overall what I gained from reading the essays was an appreciation of how these practices touched the hearts and lives of the writers, and having this knowledge can be helpful when planning parish events, writing a homily or bulletin column or examining pastoral practices. The voices of the contributors vary as do their perspectives, which make for interesting reading.
