Sophia Institute Launches Monthly Virtual Book Club

Are you looking for a way to connect with other Catholics passionate about the Faith? Are you curious about what goes into writing a book? Do you have thought-provoking questions for authors, editors, and readers alike?

Sophia Institute has recently introduced a new virtual monthly Book Club featuring discussion with the authors and publisher on a variety of Catholic topics.

May saw the group discuss How They Love Mary with Fr. Edward Looney. Father shared the inspiration behind the book, and readers revealed their experiences of Our Lady’s intercession in their own lives.

This month’s selection is Kidnapped in Iraq: A Christian Humanitarian Tells His Story. Author Alexandre Goodarzy will join the discussion to shed new insight on his incredible testimony and answer reader questions.

The discussion will be held via Zoom on Monday, June 20, at 7:00 pm ET.

Future selections include:

Visions and Revelations by Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen

This is the book that explains everything you need to know about true Catholic mysticism. Spiritual master Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D., will guide you in understanding contemplative prayer and the preeminence of faith over revelations in the spiritual life.

The Diary of Saint Gemma by St. Gemma Galgani

Here is the remarkable diary of this young saint, which her spiritual director ordered her to write. It will give you an enthralling glimpse into her numerous encounters with Jesus Crucified, with Our Lady, and with her guardian angel.

Readers can join by signing up for the Book of the Month Club here.

Readers who wish to participate in this month’s discussion may email the editor directly at [email protected].
