At the heart of ethics is the freely chosen decision to act. This freedom defines us as responsible beings, and its exercise shapes us. The
Fifth Annual Meeting of the Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians' Guilds explores the origins of
our freedom and its concrete applications in a medical context.

In "William Kurelek: painter and prophet" Michael O'Brien brings to life a great artist whose work embodies his passionate faith as it was lived out in an
agonizing struggle waged against the forces of disintegration both within himself and in modern society. This book is a unique achievement by a writer who
shares both Kurelek's faith and his vocation.
"Michael O'Brien explodes old caricatures and intelligently articulates the theological nuance and empathy that lay at the heart of William Kurelek's moral and
artistic worldview. Whether or not we share the artist's faith and urgency, we cannot but be moved by the depth of understanding that O'Brien brings to this
~ Andrew Kear, Curator of Historical Canadian Art, Winnipeg Art Gallery, and co-author of the exhibition catalogue "William Kurelek: The Messenger (2011)"
Michael O'Brien is a well-known painter and writer. He has worked as a professional artist since 1970 and has held more than forty exhibits across North America.

"Beating the Bounds" charts the birth, rise and fall of the Anglo-Catholic parish of St. Osmund's, as lived and discovered by Tabitha Yarwood.
As she comes to understand the chasm that separates what St. Osmund's was from what it is now, Tabitha starts redrawing the boundaries of her faith,
probing the divisions between Anglo-Catholicism and the Church of Rome and searching for her true Catholic home.
"This is an 'impossible' novel, in the sense that Lisa Gottlieb has managed to achieve something quite amazing. In 'Beating the Bounds' she takes the dullest
of dull topics, the parish history, and presents it as something filled with marvels and tragedies. On one level, it is an engaging, informative account
of Anglicanism in Canada as seen from the ground level across four generations in a small fictional parish in Ontario. It is rich in details and characterization,
story telling and humour.
On another level it is a lament for what has largely disappeared from the Anglican archipelago, namely the Anglo-Catholic world, including its glory and its
failings. Lisa Gottlieb tracks the transformations and losses which throw into relief the horrible liberalization of the churches in Canada, and does so without
At its deepest level, this novel is a microcosm of the human search for meaning and stability in an unstable world -- the search for Christ in the midst of
'ordinary' lives. Gottlieb shows us ourselves, and does so with honesty, affection, irony and wit. This is the work of a very, very gifted writer."
~ Michael D. O'Brien Author, Father Elijah
Born in Boston, Lisa Gottlieb is a graduate of Wellesley College, the University of Chicago and the University of Toronto. After spending most of her adult
life on academic pursuits, she realized that she would rather write novels that have a purpose.
"Beating the Bounds" is the first book of a trilogy focusing on Tabitha Yarwood. Like Tabitha, Lisa was baptized into an Anglo-Catholic parish, enjoys baseball
and dessert and is preoccupied with the question of why a person would not want to lead a a church-centred life.
Lisa and her husband live in Toronto.
"God's Nativity Scene" is a moving account of the First Christmas, seen through the eyes of the innkeeper at Bethlehem, a shepherd boy with Down Syndrome,
a housemaid, a donkey and -- the star.
Its cast includes Gabriel and Herod, the Wise Men and Simeon, the Holy Innocents and -- the universe.
Since its first publication in Madrid in
1995 it has had
ten editions, enjoys a wide readership among both adults and children, and has established itself as a Christmas classic.

Waiting is a collection of five stories for Advent by the foremost of
Canadian Catholic writers and artists, Michael D. O'Brien. The stories
are suffused with the hope and gratitude characteristic of his work
and reflect his extraordinary power to move the reader without resort
to sentimentality. In Waiting, O'Brien faces the presence of evil in the
world and shows us its ultimate powerlessness.
This amazing writer has an elegiac style seasoned with wit and
erudition and a mesmerizing vision of where we are and where
we are going. ~ Ralph McInery
Winter Tales is a collection of four stories from the many worlds of Michael O'Brien's imagination. None of these worlds is the one
we inhabit, and yet each of them is founded on the same ultimate realities that underlie our own. In each the fault line between good
and evil runs not only through the world but through the hearts of the characters O'Brien brings to life. The stories are illuminated
by four of the author's hauntingly suggestive paintings.
"Each visual image and each work of prose is an incarnation of a word, a statement of faith...It asks the questions: what is most noble
and eternal in man? who is he? why does he exist? and what is his eternal destiny?" ~ Michael D. O'Brien

Does the internet enhance or diminish our humanity?
Do social media draw us closer together or further isolate us?
Do we control our technology or does it control us? Does it free us from our limitations or create new ones?
Fr Denis Lemieux examines these and other questions in the light of his Christian faith and with his characteristic humour and wisdom.
Fr Denis Lemieux was born in Alexandria, Ontario. He has been a member of Madonna House since 1991 and was ordained in 2004.
He holds a licentiate in Sacred Theology and is the author of Going Home: Reflecting on the Mercy of God with Catherine de Hueck Doherty (Justin Press, 2012),

in the Writings of Joseph Ratzinger.
He currently resides in Combermere, Ontario, where he divides his time between teaching, writing, parish mission and retreat work and spiritual direction.
In "Arriving Where We Started" Michael O'Brien turns the clear light of faith on the decay of modern culture and on the origins of the decay in the spiritual
bankruptcy of the West.
Drawing on his experience as a novelist and a painter, O'Brien describes the rise and decline of the arts in parallel with the ages
of faith and apostasy in Christendom. He remains fully alive to the extraordinary regenerative power of the faith and to the possibility of recovering the
"sense of wonder at and consciousness of the splendour of existence".
Michael O'Brien has examined the disintegration of the social fabric in
'Remembrance of the Future' and the crisis of the family in 'Father at Night'. 'Arriving Where We Started' completes a trilogy which sounds the tocsin
for the Christian Civilization of the Western World.
The idea of moral courage has become almost unintelligible in a world of moral relativism and in a country whose laws reflect the whims of majorities and the
ideologies of courts. Physicians who struggle to express the principles of Natural Law in the practice of medicine do so at real personal risk.
This book explores the origins of the crisis and the means for confronting it.

"Mercy--as Christ presented it in the parable of the prodigal son--has the interior form of the love that in the New Testament is called agape.
This love is able to reach down to every prodigal son, to every human misery, and above all to every form of moral misery, to sin." - John Paul II in
Dives in Misericordia
Going Home is a reflection on the parable of the prodigal son in the light of the teaching of Catherine de Hueck Doherty. Fr. Denis Lemieux shows us the
astonishing power of the parable to heal the wounds of sin and division in our lives and set us anew on the journey to the Father.

Fr. Robert Wild explores the meaning of mysticism and its manifestation in the life of G.K. Chesterton, the
most loved and most influential Catholic writer of the twentieth century.
"There have been many good books on Chesterton in recent years. His star seems again to be rising....
But until now we have lacked a book that spoke openly of what is, in the end, the most important thing about him: his friendship with God."
~ Stratford Caldecott, Editor, Second Spring
"To recite the Rosary," John Paul II wrote, "is nothing other than to contemplate with Mary the face of Christ."
The Rosary has for centuries been a powerful prayer of petition and a privileged means of contemplation.
Paulette Kelly brings the prayer of the Rosary to life through a series of vivid accounts of its power in her life and
in the lives of twelve Canadians. The Healing Rosary offers an approach to this ancient prayer which combines the humility
and perseverence of petition with the contemplation of the mysteries.
Michael O'Brien and his wife Sheila have six children and
live near Combermere, Ontario, Canada. In Father at Night, the author describes the challenges, triumphs, and defeats of the vocation of
fatherhood lived in circumstances ranging from difficult to impossible. In doing so, he illuminates the meaning of fatherhood as a path
to holiness and the role of children in bringing their parents to adult maturity.
"... the family seems at times a hospital, a prison, a boarding house and a mental institution. It is all of these and more, of course. It is a place of
'fearful beauty', packed to the full with every emotion imaginable, with moments of brilliant illumination and dark squalor, with limitless opportunities for heroism and for sin. ...
It is the great school of the soul."
Michael O'Brien is a well-known self-taught painter and author. He has worked as a professional artist since 1970 and has held more than
40 exhibits across North America.
He is the author of ten novels which have been translated into several foreign languages, and his first published novel, Father Elijah, has

Fr. Robert Wild explores the relations between Catherine Doherty, the Foundress of Madonna House,
and six of the most influential Catholic figures of her time in a series of essays that bring them to life and illuminate their spirituality.
"Anyone who enjoys reading G. K. Chesterton or Vladimir Soloviev will delight in this book;
the chapters devoted to these two authors alone are more than enough to make it worthwhile.
This said, the other chapters provide wonderful insights into the lives of well known Catholic
figures and shed new light on the life and spirit of Catherine Doherty."

Christopher Dawson's Saints plus The Annotated Quotable Dawson
Christopher Dawson's Saints gathers together his scattered writings on saints and their formative role in history and offers a glimpse of history's
inexplicable element due not only to the influence of chance or the initiative of the individual genius, but also to the creative power of spiritual forces."
"There are few, even among Catholics, who realize the importance of the lives of the saints for the history of Western civilization.
Nowhere else do we find such a rich tradition of authentic biographical material, which throws light on almost every aspect of life and
thought for a period of nineteen hundred years. The lives of the saints have created the pattern of Christian culture through the centuries.
They have been the archetypes of Christian experience through which successive generations have learnt the following of Christ according to the forms of their own age and culture."
~ Christopher Dawson
Christopher Dawson, the greatest Catholic historian of the twentieth century, devoted his life to the study of Christian culture,
the "periphery of a circle which has its centre
in the Incarnation and the faith of the Church and the lives of the saints."
The modern world has been variously described as awash in words, swamped with information, drowning in empty communication.
It is vital that we reconnect our words with truth and the source of truth, that our information be formation and our communication, wisdom.
The Third Annual Meeting of The Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians' Societies offered concrete examples of the restoration
of the link between words and wisdom, a restoration promised us by Our Lord (Luke 21:15).
The contributers to Words and a Wisdom:
Fr. Raymond DeSouza is chaplain of the Newman Centre at
Queen's University and a columnist for the National Post.
Dr. Francois Primeau is Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurosciences, Laval University, and Chief of the

Ian Hunter has taught and practised law and journalism in Canada for 40 years. He taught law at the University of Western Ontario
and is the author of biographies of Malcolm Muggeridge, Hesketh Pearson, and Robert Burns. This is the first collection of his columns
that have appeared in numerous publications, including The Globe and Mail and The National Post. Ian Hunter lives in St. Thomas,
"Ian Hunter's That Time of Year offers what only a collection of short essays can: a galaxy of crisply individual points of light,
spiralling into something much larger. For years, Hunter has been our best informed observer in the legal and quasi-legal dimensions
of Canada's descent into the 'tyranny of the fatuous' As this book reminds, he was there, monitoring every stage, often in person. But as it
also shows, Hunter is no narrow lawyer. He looks consistently beyond the immediate event, and his literary and cultural interests are
genuinely broad. He has a memorable prose voice, and the fine whimsy that invariably betokens a sharp poetical mind. The book embodies the very best
qualities to which the 'politically correct' are allergic, and is never ranting. There is also a background religious striving, which lifts
these pieces quite of the time and circumstances that occasioned them. To those who still aspire to civilization, here is something that not
only defends, but embodies the wisdom of our Christian heritage. And on top of that, it is entertaining." ~ David Warren, Canadian columnist, The Ottawa Citizen
"Years back Ian Hunter edited an anthology of Malcolm Muggeridge's journalism (Things Past) chosen to exhibit Muggeridge's surpassing prose
style and his lifelong pilgrimage in quest of faith. In That Time of Year, Hunter pulls together another long-spanning feast of first rate
occasional writings - this time his own - and gloriously proves the same two points about himself." ~ Herman Goodden, London Free Press

Jacek Bacz lives in Montreal. He has two
children and five grandchildren
In By Reason Alone Jacek Bacz has come up with a particularly fine
metaphor for the process of finding one's way spiritually: the puzzle. In a lively, quick flowing narrative that is both objective and personal, the author engages intellectual challenges that a modern mind faces when confronted with the issue of religious truth. Readers will enjoy and learn from Bacz's account of finding the pieces of the puzzle and fitting them together to form a spiritually sustaining worldview.
~ David Williams,
Professor Emeritus, McGill University;
Professor of Literature, Ave Maria University, Naples, Florida
By Reason Alone is, as its subtitle suggests, 'a great puzzle'. It addresses the greatest puzzle, the greatest riddle, that all of us face as we try to make sense of life, and as we try to make sense of ourselves. What is life? Who are we? These are questions that haunt all of us, or at least all of us who think about these primal things. For those who don't think there is perhaps no hope. But for those of us who do think, there is not only hope, but also faith and love. Jacek Bacz shows us in this challenging and rewarding book that reason leads to faith, and that faith is eminently reasonable.

The modern secular state attacks the dignity of the
human person by denying its source. Human rights
detached from their origin in God are a matter of
social consensus and the relative strength of interest
groups. Many of the resulting abuses have medical
implications as well as a general and universal
significance. This volume addresses the foundation
and defense of human dignity in medicine and
society. The essays included here originated
in the Second Annual Meeting of the
Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians' Societies
held in Montreal in May 2010.

Christopher Dawson, the greatest Catholic historian of
the twentieth century, remains the final authority on
the relation between religion and culture and is one of
the most original thinkers of the modern era.
The Annotated Quotable Dawson is a gateway to his work, offering
the reader a glimpse of the astonishing breadth
and depth of his learning and wisdom. Dawson's
comments on a wide range of subjects confirm
Frank Sheed's opinion that while Dawson had not
read everything, there was nothing it was safe to
assume he had not read.
Footnotes from the writings of Dawson's contemporaries,
G.K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc, provide further insight
and perspective on matters of enduring importance to any reader
with a concern for the past and future of humanity.
The rights of conscience are under increasing attack in Canada and the world from public authorities acting in the name of a debased conception of human freedom. This volume addresses issues of freedom of conscience from a medical perspective which also has general and universal significance. The four essays included here deal with historical, practical and theological aspects of the present crisis in the defense of rights of conscience. They originated in papers delivered at the first annual meeting of the Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians' Societies held in Ottawa in May 2009.
The authors include:
- Dr. John Haas, president of the National Catholic Bioethics Centre, named by Pope Benedict XVI to serve as an Ordinary Member of the Pontifical Academy for Life (PAV).

- Dr. Maria Kraw, staff endocrinologist at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. She is the Bioethics coordinator for the Postgraduate Endocrine Training Program and an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto.
Canadian Converts is the first collection of conversion stories in Canadian literature.
Eleven contemporary Canadians relate the stories of their conversion to the Roman Catholic Church in brief, yet intimate and vivid self-portraits. From very diverse religious and social backgrounds those men and women trace their paths to Rome through a secular environment of indifference or hostility. Their courage is a testimony to the liberating power and unchanging attraction of the truth.

Remembrance of the Future is a collection of essays on a wide range of topics by the foremost of Canadian catholic writers.
Michael D. O'Brien is a writer of penetrating spiritual insight and prophetic clarity. He is the author of Father Elijah and Island of the World.
In Remembrance of the Future, O'Brien addresses the manifold aspects of the mystery of evil as it afflicts the lives and religious practice of Catholics in Canada and the world. The stories are suffused with a transcendent hope, which has its grounds in the author's unshakable faith.
According to Ralph McInery 'This amazing writer has an elegiac style seasoned with wit and erudition and a mesmerizing vision of where we are and where we are going.'
John Paul II was being called John Paul the Great even before he died. His life was amazing and his story has filled the pages of many books. This book is different. It is a collection of anecdotes about the man from the time he was a boy. Many readers have said they laughed out loud. They've cried. Find out why in this expanded second edition. Find out how the pope prayed. What were his high school grades? How did he escape death five times? What happened to one man who touched him?
According to Father Jim Whalen, former Canadian National Director of Priests For Life in Canada, "This was the best book for youth at the World Youth Day in Toronto. It was wonderful."
