Catholic Classics Book Club: Fall 2023 Selection
Confessions of St. Augustine
“From a life of youthful rebellion and waywardness to a deep conversion that led him to become a bishop, theologian, and philosopher, his journey is a testament to the transformative power of God’s grace. His life, filled with profound conversion, wisdom, and unyielding devotion, continues to inspire and guide us on our own spiritual journeys, almost 2,000 years later!
Perhaps one of the most enduring gifts St. Augustine has
left for us is his popular written work, Confessions. In this masterpiece, he bares his soul, confessing his past sins and shortcomings while revealing the profound encounters with God that led him toward the path of righteousness. It is through this intimate account that we find guidance in our pursuit of holiness.” We will be using the new Ascension Press edition “with an exclusive translation in modern English, this version draws readers ever closer to God by making St. Augustine’s conversations with the heavenly Father readily accessible to Catholics today. Never-before-seen commentary ensures that you understand how each section contributes to the truth and beauty of the entire work.” Please contact Dcn. Dennis Donahue
(Dennis.Donahue@dor.org or 315 406 1538) for further details
on how we plan to read this spiritual classic work together in the coming months.
