The Three Books

In my previous post I mentioned that I am reading three books on Jesus for Holy Week. I have got a request to know what are the names of the books. So, for what it is worth, here they are:

1. `It’s Time; Challenges to the Doctrine of the Faith” by Michael Morwood.
Michael is an Australian, former Sacred Heart priest; he has written many books, and they are available on the internet.

Exploring Faith; a stimulating experience.

My latest two reflections on aspects of Church doctrine have had some interesting responses. `I am not referring to social media, which I indulge in very sparingly. Letters in the Irish Times, and emails to myself, varied from those who were very supportive to those who, in the case of some emails, were quite abusive and condemnatory. After a good few years in the public domain, due to my work with the ACP and my writings, I am used to all this, and it doesn’t cause me any great concern.

As a result of my recent piece about certain Church doctrines I have had a lot of correspondence, most of it very interesting and informative. One person wrote to me with the following question:

I would be very interested in your views of the consecration which is the bedrock of a lot of catholic teaching and the resurrection. Is the resurrection like the virgin birth another Myth?.

Below is my attempt at an answer:

Myths are important in helping us to define who we are.
