    One thought on “That Nothing May Be Lost: Reflections on Catholic Doctrine and Devotion”

    1. Father Paul Scalia's new collection of essays, That Nothing May be Lost (Ignatius Press, 2017) has a unique structure: each chapter has an introduction written by a guest author, followed by several of Scalia's own essays. Many of these were previously published as blog posts, monthly commentaries or bulletin columns. The detailed table of contents allows the reader to skip around as desired, choosing just the essay that invites itself to be read at that particular moment. The chapter introducti [...]

    2. Each essay offers a concise, but thoughtful reflection that can be read quickly, but pondered for a long while. Fr. Scalia’s breadth of knowledge and education underpin his writing, that often includes humor and pithy observations. Fr. Scalia, and the other contributors to this book, exemplify the vibrancy and joy of the Catholic faith.

    3. This is a very nice collection of essays on a variety of Catholic and theological topics. They are loosely organized into chapters based on common ideas: The Lord, The Church, Paradoxes of Faith, The Sacraments, The Virgin Mary, The Saints, Prayer, The Life of Grace, and Feasts.What I especially liked about this collection was the length of each essay - no more than a page or two. The brevity of each essay, however, does not mean the writing is superficial or light. Many of these essays gave me [...]

    4. A fantastic book that gathers reflections on a variety of topics in Catholic doctrine and devotions. Rev. Scalia writes in a way that is easily understandable and relates well to common day concerns. This book will help those of you in the Catholic faith to take a deeper look at it and will help those not of the Catholic faith to better understand it.

    5. Deeply profound devotions. Easily accessible. Scholarly reflections. Short, sweet, and to the point essays and columns. A must read.
