  • Poems Every Catholic Should Know

This anthology provides some of the finest Christian verse written during the second millennium of Christianity.

All of the great ones are here: Hildegard of Bingen, Francis of Assisi, Dante and Chaucer from the High Middle Ages; Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross and John Donne from the Reformation; English and American Romantics such as Browning and Whittier; late nineteenth-century mystics like Dickenson and Hopkins, as well the great converts of that period like Newman and Chesterton; and, T. S. Eliot speaking out of and into our own times.

A conscious attempt was made to meet both the standards of academia and the tastes and sensibilities of the faithful.

The selections are arranged chronologically to serve also as a history of verse. Brief biographical and anecdotal introductions reveal the varied relationships of the poets with each other and with the trials and tribulations of their day. This magnificent collection is essential for all poetry lovers for those who respond to the beauty of the written word penned in the service of spiritual truth.

    Poems every Catholic should know

    A great treasure, as I begin to look through this work I remain sure this is a body of work to contemplate,, to have such a sample of word sketch compiled over so many continuous years on and of Christ and Christianity. Thank you God for the authors and their efforts along with every person who has brought this work to those who are, themselves, an ongoing part of the journey toward Heaven.

    The book is a good read when you want to relax and think of God's plans for the world.
