Epiphany - THE GOLDING: A story within a story, by Sonya Deanna Terry


A mystical forest . . . An ancient prophecy . . . A love that spans lifetimes

Free-spirited book-club founder, Rosetta, and polished traditionalist, Matthew, are yet to meet and have little in common, but time-travelling sprites from a magical past are convinced they’ll fulfil an aeons-old prophecy.


A simple enough plan, it would seem, getting two people in one city to unite against a Cycle of Suffering that the world doesn’t know it’s imprisoned in. Throughout every age in history, however, a body-king influence has thwarted sprites’ hopes for humanity.

But sprites and body-kings aren’t supposed to exist! Rosetta has no reason to think they’re an...
                     
Debunking Misconceptions About Catholicism, by J Alvarez

There are many books that defend the Catholic faith but most are ineffective in conveying God's very simple message to the ordinary Catholic layman. Most members of the Catholic laity find catechisms complicated and hard to understand. Other Christian denominations are very aggressive in promoting their own doctrines and beliefs, challenging what most Catholics traditionally believe in.

Recent surveys purportedly saying that many Catholics no longer want to go to church got it all extremely wrong! A Catholic knows that the beautiful center of his Christian life is receiving Jesus during the sacrament of th...
