Catholicism was all over movie screens in 2004. Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ was at the center of a media firestorm for months. A priest was a crucial character in the Academy Award-winning Million Dollar Baby. Everyone, it seemed, was talking about how religious stories should be represented, marketed, and received. Catholic characters, spaces, and rituals have been stock features in popular films since the silent era. An intensely visual religion with a well-defined ritual and authority system, Catholicism lends itself to the drama and pageantry of film. Moviegoers watch as Catholic visionaries interact with the supernatural, priests counsel their flocks, reformers fight for social justice, and bishops wield authoritarian power. Rather than being marginal to American popular culture, Catholic people, places, and rituals are all central to the world of the movie. Catholics in the Movies begins with an introductory essay that orients readers to the ways that films appear in culture and describes the broad trends that can be seen in the movies' hundred-year history of representing Catholics. Each chapter is written by a noted scholar of American religion who concentrates on one movie engaging important historical, artistic, and religious issues. Each then places the film within American cultural and social history, discusses the film as an expression of Catholic concerns of the period, and relates the film to others of its genre. Tracing the story of American Catholic history through popular films, Catholics in the Movies should be a valuable resource for anyone interested in American Catholicism and religion and film.

In The Road to Character David Brooks, best-selling author of The Social Animal and New York Times columnist, explains why selflessness leads to greater success You could say there are two kinds of virtues in the world, the résumé virtues and the eulogy virtues. The résumé virtues are the ones you list on your CV, the skills that contribute to external success. The eulogy virtues are deeper. They're what get talked about at your funeral and they are usually the virtues that exist at the core of your being - whether you are kind, brave, honest or faithful, what kind of relationships you formed over your lifetime. In this urgent and soul-searching book, David Brooks explores the road to character. We live in a culture that encourages us to think about how to be wealthy and successful, but which leaves many of us inarticulate about how to cultivate the deepest inner life. We know that this deeper life matters, but it becomes subsumed by the day-to-day, and the deepest parts of who we are go unexplored and unstructured. The Road to Character connects us once again to an ancient moral tradition, a tradition that asks us to confront our own weaknesses and grow in response, rather than shallowly focus on our good points. It is a focus David Brooks believes all of us - including himself - need to reconnect with now. Telling the stories of people through history who have exemplified the different activities that contribute to a deeper existence, Brooks uses the diverse lives of individuals such as George Eliot, Dwight Eisenhower and Augustine to explore traits such as self-mastery, dignity, vocation and love. He hopes that through considering their lives it will fire the longing we all have to be better, to find the path to character. David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times and frequent broadcaster. His previous books include the bestsellers The Social Animal and Bobos in Paradise. His New York Times columns reach over 800,000 readers across the globe.

Looking at their lives, offering definitions, and establishing themes, the Naval Academy midshipmen authors of this essay collection examine the nature of the American Dream, success, and what both mean to Americans.

"Applied Christianity" contains the conferences of a seven-day silent Ignatian retreat first given in the 1930's by Fr. Onesimus Lacouture, S.J. Castle of Grace is publishing the author's third and final edition. The author of this book, Father John J. Hugo, of Pittsburgh, made the retreat under Father Lacouture in 1938 and then went on to teach it regularly, mostly to the laity. The most famous promoter of the retreats was Dorothy Day, co-founder with Peter Maurin of "The Catholic Worker."Father Hugo said that the retreat offers the "complete panorama of the Christian life, in which the relation of the several parts to one another and to the whole is clearly visible." In 1968 Sister M. Angelica, a member of the Sisters of Charity of the Greensburg, Pennsylvania, diocese, wrote of this retreat and Father Hugo's books: "I will always hold this to be the only that work that gave me the full, consistent, integrated, uncompromising teaching on the spiritual life . . . so rooted in the scriptures and spiritual masters - such a work of wisdom. I defy anyone to do this in any other context or framework of the Christian life. Yet, she asked, "But who can take it in this cozy, comfortable age? Will 'Christians' ever be able to 'drink all this straight?' Maybe not till there is a great cosmic purge sent by God. Maybe not then." "Applied Christianity" is for those who seek such a guide for living the Christian life in all the fullness of God's truth.The companion books to the Lacouture/Hugo retreat are also available from Castle of Grace LLC. "You Are Gods!" contains the full conferences of Part One of "Applied Christianity." Fr. Hugo thought that this part needed to be presented in greater detail. "A Sign of Contradiction" contains a history of the retreat. "Nature and the Supernatural" contains Fr. Hugo's rebuttals of various critics who misunderstood the retreat. Each volume contains a foreword by Fr. Hugo's niece, Rosemary Hugo Fielding.

During the past century, an enormous effervescence of events changed the sociopolitical configuration of the world. The interpretation of these facts helped further deepen the crisis in which modern thought already found itself--and it generated the uncertain and unstable environment in which we live today, the so-called postmodernity, late modernity, or hypermodernity. In this context, one of the most profound impacts is most certainly the one on religion. During the twentieth century, religion proved not to be banished from the human horizon as the masters of suspicion intended. Known as the godless century, the twentieth century saw also a resuscitation of the search for the sense of life and spirituality. With the crisis of modern reason, humankind turned toward consumerism and provisional and "light" practices. The last century represents not only the height of the postmodernization process but also the rescue of the transcendent and absolute, even if it is an absolute without face and identity. It is in this scenario that religious experiences, apparently exiled by modern rationality, begin to occur and multiply again. Mystical experiences will be, then, the basis for highlighting recurrent characteristics with universal import. But they will show a different configuration than before. One will be able to find them not in so-called sacred spaces but in very secular ones; not so much within institutions but at the borders, or even outside them; not configured by a specific tradition but in an interface that makes more than one tradition meet and dialogue.
