A Catholic Guide to the Apostles' Creed Jan 17, 2009
The indepth explanation of the Apostle's Creed made that prayer even more meaningful. One of the most insightful sentences was "Listen closely to His living Word, a Word that informs, changes, and criticizes us, strengthens and gives life and forms us more and more into Christ Himself."
The Apostles' Creed Nov 17, 2008
The Faith We Profess - A Catholic Guide to the Apostles' Creed - is an excellent summary of Catholic belief and insightful reflection based on the Creed. The book is highlighted by references to the Sacred Scriptures and examples from everyday life. It is a testament to Monsignor Vaghi's devotion as a teacher of faith to Catholics or to those who are interested in the Catholic faith. A readable, deeply thoughtful and inspiring work.
Spending time with the Apostles' Creed Nov 10, 2008
"The Faith We Profess" is a pastor's loving reflection on this ancient creed of the apostles shared by all Christians. Msgr. Vaghi's reflections on the Apostles' Creed are well prepared and show the didactic polishing of having been offered first to the people of his flock. These reflections were first prepared for those of us in his church family. - The twelve chapters would fill a weekend retreat or two weeks of daily reflections. - I believe that this book is an excellent and valuable meditation for all Christians and for all those desiring to ponder further the ancient Apostles' Creed and the Catholic faith.
Inspiring and informative Oct 12, 2008
Msgr. Vaghi writes the way he speaks, i.e., with clarity, persuasiveness, and inspiration. This is a must read for anyone who has a committment to, an interest in or a curiousity about the Faith as professed in The Apostles' Creed.
