I thought readers might appreciate some inspiring weekend reading.
Recently Fr Julian Carron’s book Disarming Beauty was published in English. It’s release is timely as we Christians wonder if we have lost the battle of faith in the midst of contemporary challenges. Fr. Carron reminds us of the original attractiveness of the disarmed reality of encounter with Jesus Christ.
At a time when other writers suggest a Christian retreat to build small, faithful and closed communities as a defence against the world, Julian reminds us that if we are with Christ we have no need for fear as we live in the complex, contemporary and secular circumstances that surround us.
Several interviews with Julian Carron have been released this week:
- From Catholic News Agency: Why this priest isn’t afraid of Christianity’s waning influence?
- Interview with John L. Allen: If you don’t think Francis is the cure you don’t grasp the disease part one & part two.
- From Denver Catholic : The event of Christianity, a thing of beauty.
