Cardinal Mahony: A Novel
Author(s): Robert Blair Kaiser, Publisher: Humble-bee Press
As serialised on Catholica. An excellent Christmas gift for a friend.
An American bishop gets kidnapped outside his cabin in the High Sierras one snowy morning in November 2008 by three liberation theologians who look like terrorists. They take him off to southern Mexico in his own helicopter and put him on trial for his sins in front of an international television audience. A jury of his peers, six retired Latin American bishops, find him guilty, and give him a surprising sentence. The bishop falls in love with his kidnappers and leads the American Catholic Church into a radical new way of being, still Catholic but aggressively accountable to the people, which is to say, aggressively American.

The Book of Catholic Jokes by Tom Sheridan
The Book of Catholic Jokes
Author(s): Tom Sheridan Publisher: ACTA Publications
Religion is far too important to be taken seriously all the time! So says author Tom Sheridan, who in The Book of Catholic Jokes invites readers to laugh along with him and remember that faith can be—and should be—fun. Sheridan begins by discussing the importance of laughter and the relationship of humour to religion before launching into hilarious jokes. After all, Jesus said, "Unless you become like children, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven". Tom Sheridan is a veteran writer and editor. In addition to a long career at the Chicago Sun-Times, he is also the former editor and general manager of publications for the Archdiocese of Chicago. An ordained deacon, he is the author of many books, including The Gift of Baptism and The Gift of Godparents.
SAMPLES FROM THE BOOK:
What do you call a nun who walks in her sleep? A roaming Catholic.
A boy asks his father to use the car and the father replies, "No, not until you cut your hair!"
The boy replies, "But father, Jesus had long hair!"
"Yeah, but Jesus walked everywhere," said the father.
The Catholic School Teacher asks, "Now, Little Johnny, tell me honestly, do you say prayers before eating?"
"No sir!" Little Johnny replies. "I don't have to. My mom is a good cook!"
A newly ordained deacon was asked to hold a graveside service for someone with no family or friends. It was his first official assignment, so he eagerly agreed.
Taking his duties very seriously, the deacon left early the next morning for the cemetery. However, he made several wrong turns and quickly got himself lost. When he finally arrived more than an hour late, the hearse was nowhere to be seen and the two workmen were eating lunch.
The deacon got out of his car, quickly threw on his vestments, and hurried to the open grave. Looking into the pit, he saw that the vault lid was already in place. With a sigh, he took out his prayer book and read the burial service.
After he had left, one of the workmen said to the other, "Maybe we should have told him he just blessed a septic tank."
