Will God chastise the world? Has He abandoned us? Will He rescue what’s left of Christendom? Will He work a miracle to defeat the anti-Christian forces? What is He doing now? Is it possible to predict what He’ll do in the future?
If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions, you owe it to yourself, to your family and friends and really to the rest of the Church, to read a certain new book.
The book is historian Diane Moczar's Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know : The Divine Surprises and Chastisements that Shaped the Church and Changed the World (Manchester, N.H. : Sophia Institute Press, 2006). [see www.sophiainstitute.com ]

The fact-filled, scholarly but readable book is all about how God is active in the history of His people. You will see how God often intervenes just when things seem hopeless; what He promised us in a great 20th-century apparition; why we’re living in “possibly the most interesting” and “most perilous” chapter in all of Christian history; how God might require “high heroism and dedication” of us; the spiritual weapons we should use; and much more.
This book has 175 pages and is paperback. If you are like ole Quintero here, it will give you hope, encourage you and inspire you to keep entering the fray! Really, every Catholic activist should read it. So should every priest, religious and young Catholic. Enjoy!
