Selected Readings

The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis

Kempis was a 14th century priest who served under the See of Utrecht. During this time Utrecht was struggling with its relationship with Rome and while still in communion was refusing to follow some of the edicts. While Kempis is proclaimed by the Roman Church as one of their great mystics he was an Old Catholic. I do hope that you will take time to read this text as it has been a blessing for me.

Dark Night of the Soul by St. John of the Cross

His life of poverty and persecution could have produced a bitter cynic. Instead it gave birth to a compassionate mystic, who lived by the beliefs that "Who has ever seen people persuaded to love God by harshness?" and "Where there is no love, put love -- and you will find love."

A simply beautiful collection of instrumental piano originals composed and performed by Father Wade Fahnestock. Still Blue Waters is played from the heart. Many have played it on their computers at work, or in the CD player of their car in the midst of stressful traffic, or played it at home during their devotions. I hope it is a blessing to you.
