Severe storms this week took out Loomebooks.com's server and so this week's eCatalog is published on our blog.

To order, please send an email to books@loomebooks.com with the book numbers from this catalog. We will return your email confirming availability, the S&H amount, and instructions for how to pay.

“I make no apology for the subject which I have chosen for my lecture – Constantine the Great and the Christian Church, for Constantine marks in his own person a turning point in European history. No student of the Middle Ages can evade Constantine: he is one of the few inescapable figures in European history and one of the most intractable.”

From CONSTANTINE THE GREAT AND THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH by Baynes.

St. Felix of Cantalice (d. 1587) was the first Capuchin to be canonized (in 1712).  He was a friend and advisor to St. Philip Neri in Rome.  Beloved of the Roman populace he was especially solicitous and tender to the children of Rome.  He considered himself the “Ass of the Capuchins” and his humility won him instant acclamation of sanctity upon his death.
