“Steeped in Romanity” — Fr. Victor-Alain Berto

The guiding star of this site is fidelity to Rome.

From torrid south to frozen north,
The wave harmonious stretches forth,
Yet strikes no chord more true to Rome’s,
Than rings within our hearts and homes.
Cardinal Wiseman

The Christian of the Day and the Christian of the Gospel

Father Emmanuel$11.95

The Christian of the Day and the Christian of the Gospel The saintly Fr. Emmanuel André (1826–1903) was probably France’s most successful pastor of the last two centuries after the Curé of Ars. He transformed his lukewarm rural parish into a haven of sanctity and founded a Benedictine monastery there, of which he was been named abbot. His work inspired Saint Pius X. Looking at the Catholics of his day, Fr. Emmanuel was horror-stricken. He saw their salvation jeopardised, especially by Naturalism, doctrinal ignorance, moral laxity, vanity, worldliness and want of the spirit of the Church. The chief weapon he used to convert souls was the Church’s official prayer, the traditional Roman liturgy. In this short book Fr. Emmanuel sets out with frightening clarity the gulf that separates ignorant, worldly and temporising Catholics from the Christian whose mind and life fully reflects Christ’s Gospel. Never before translated.
