Lyubov, I once read on a conspiracy theory/tin foiler website that the Memoirs are a hoax.

In any case, I'm glad to see you are into Russia!

Haha! I hadn't heard that theory.

I'm working on a more concerted effort to read all the books I own, so I'm going back to "The Mass" printed by Angelus Press and written by Fr Joseph Dunney.

Jesus son of David, have mercy on me.

In Soviet Russia, memoirs write you.

A coincidence. I'm also getting through Aquinas, and Copleston's History of Philosophy
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Just finished The Truth of Papal Claims by Cardinal Raphael Merry Del Val. It was a very enjoyable and informative read. The Cardinal had a brilliant sense of humour! He ripped to shreds Dr. Oxenham's objections to Papal infallibility and supremacy wielding the utmost charity. An excerpt from the Cardinal's conclusion in the book which I found particularly inspiring:

Quote
May Dr. Oxenham reach the same conclusion [as John Henry Newman], as he reads the works of the Fathers, and let him rest assured that, if this grace is bestowed upon him, he will have no truer friend than the author of these pages.

Self-explanatory.  I'm actually surprised we don't have this thread yet. 

I'm currently reading...

Lord of Chaos: Book 6 of the Wheel of Time, by Robert Jordan

"All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because they are the works of men; but the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison for it is but the sacrifice of man to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for man." - St. John Vianney
