Catholicism can be defended in one line: “For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name is great among the nations, and in every place incense is offered to my name, and a pure offering: for my name is great among nations, says the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 1:11).
” It’s not often one goes rummaging through a long abandoned desk drawer and finds a treasure. When it does happen what is found is something truly special. Such is that case with the latest book I have read. Teachings for an Unbelieving World: Newly Discovered Reflections on Paul’s Sermon at the Areopagus was written by Archbishop Karol Wojtyla somewhere around 1965″.
“Mike Aquilina is one of the most prolific Catholic authors today, having churned out over fifty books as well as numerous essays and articles. The title of his latest book is The Healing Imperative: The Early Church and the Invention of Medicine as We Know It (Steubenville, OH: Emmaus Road Publishing, $18.95).
In this slim volume, Aquilina takes us back to the state of medicine before the rise of Christianity to show us not only how Christ transformed the healing professions but also how Christian charity gave rise to hospitals and medical science”.
