American Pilgrimage: A Historical Journey Through Catholic Life in a New World

American Pilgrimage: A Historical Journey Through Catholic Life in a New World
Shannon, Christopher
$34.95
Histories of the Catholic Church in the United States abound. Most suffer from an excess of either scholarly detachment or popular triumphalism. American Pilgrimage seeks instead to draw on the best of current scholarship to tell the story of the Church as it understands itself: the Body of Christ, divinely ordained yet marred by sin, charged with the mission of spreading the Gospel and building up the community of the faithful.

In scope, American Pilgrimage narrates the story of the Church from the dramatic efforts at evangelization in the colonial period, to the Catholic urban villages of the immigrant Church, to the struggles to reimagine tradition in the late-20th century. In shape, it follows this story through the Augustinian contours of the ongoing struggle between the City of God and the City of Man--a struggle that takes place between the Church and the world, within the Church itself, and within the soul of every Christian.

Catholic Pilgrimage Through American History: People and Places That Shaped the Church in the United States

Catholic Pilgrimage Through American History: People and Places That Shaped the Church in the United States
Schmiesing, Kevin
$19.95

Awarded third place in pilgrimages/Catholic travel by the Catholic Media Association.

Historian Kevin Schmiesing takes you to more than two-dozen sites and events that symbolize and embody America's rich and sometimes tumultuous Catholic past, including the Santa Fe Trail, Gettysburg, and the Bourbon Trail. You'll also meet both famous and infamous Catholics--including Augustus Tolton, Dr. Samuel Mudd, and Frances Cabrini--who impacted our nation's history.

The idea for A Catholic Pilgrimage through American History came from Schmiesing's mother, he says. She turned every childhood vacation into a pilgrimage, purposely inserting religious sites into the family's journey to places such as Niagara Falls, Washington, DC, or Myrtle Beach.

Catholics have been part of the American experiment since the beginning--in founding the colonies and expanding the west, building education and health care systems, abolishing slavery, fighting on the front lines, and advancing science, technology, and space exploration. Each of the twenty-seven sites on Schmiesing's virtual itinerary--including, the Washington Monument, Wounded Knee Creek, the University of Notre Dame, and Mission San Diego de Alcalá--transports you to a significant time in US history and connects the dots to our Catholic heritage. You will meet notable Catholics such as John F. Kennedy, Black Elk, and Katharine Drexel, and learn more about their contributions to history.

You will explore the various and sometimes conflicting roles Catholics have played in key periods and events through the stories of shrines, memorials, and other historic places including:

  • the Catholic Plymouth Rock--St. Mary's City, Maryland;
  • the Bourbon Trail--Church of St. Thomas, Bardstown, Kentucky;
  • the Pope's Stone--the Washington Monument in the District of Columbia;
  • a Catholic mission and a Native American tragedy: Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota; and
  • the home of the first Black priest--the churches of Quincy, Illinois.

    Roman Pilgrimage: the Station Churches

    Roman Pilgrimage: the Station Churches
    Weigel, George
    $39.99
    A preeminent scholar of Catholicism transports readers to Rome for the traditional station churches pilgrimage, offering a vivid and informative guide to the Eternal City and the Lenten season.

    The annual Lenten pilgrimage to dozens of Rome's most striking churches is a sacred tradition dating back almost two millennia, to the earliest days of Christianity. Along this historic spiritual pathway, today's pilgrims confront the mysteries of the Christian faith through a program of biblical and early Christian readings amplified by some of the greatest art and architecture of western civilization.

    In Roman Pilgrimage, bestselling theologian and papal biographer George Weigel, art historian Elizabeth Lev, and photographer Stephen Weigel lead readers through this unique religious and aesthetic journey with magnificent photographs and revealing commentaries on the pilgrimage's liturgies, art, and architecture. Through reflections on each day's readings about faith and doubt, heroism and weakness, self-examination and conversion, sin and grace, Rome's familiar sites take on a new resonance. And along that same historical path, typically unexplored treasures-artifacts of ancient history and hidden artistic wonders-appear in their original luster, revealing new dimensions of one of the world's most intriguing and multi-layered cities.

    A compelling guide to the Eternal City, the Lenten Season, and the itinerary of conversion that is Christian life throughout the year, Roman Pilgrimage reminds readers that the imitation of Christ through faith, hope, and love is the template of all true discipleship, as the exquisite beauty of the Roman station churches invites reflection on the deepest truths of Christianity.

Along with the description of each church, Papandrea includes prayers from the ancient church, and across the span of the history of Christianity, in order to facilitate prayer and meditation in the very sites that have been considered holy ground for over a millennium. Over one hundred photographs are included, not only to help the reader use this book as a guide in Rome, but also to make the book a valuable devotional aid both before and after the trip. Coming back from Rome after using this book, the reader will find that Rome has become a second home. Endorsements: "There are many guidebooks to Rome, but this is the one true pilgrim guide. It has been almost a half-century since the last great one was published, and Rome has changed much since then. Christian travelers have been in dire need of this book. A pilgrim should always travel light, but never be without Papandrea's Rome. It goes deep in history and still deeper in true piety." --Mike Aquilina, author of The Fathers of the Church and many other books Author Biography: James L.
