Fr. John Furniss's book 'The Great Question' is now online entirely on Saints' Books.

We're currently right in the middle of it in the Book Study forum.

Please everyone join in. Any book in the book studies can be joined in at any time, right in the middle!

And please continue to enjoy the works of Fr. Furniss.

'THERE is a great thought -- a great question. It is the greatest of all questions -- the question of questions. Listen to the great question. This, then is the Great Question: "Almighty God has created you. He has given you a body and an immortal soul, redeemed with the blood of Jesus Christ. You live in the world for a few short years, then you pass away, and nobody sees you any more. Why, then, did God create you? Why did he put you in this world? What are you for? What is the great thing you have to do here? What is your great affair? your great business in this world?" Behold, then, the Great Question: "Why did God create you?" Very few people ever think about the great question. '

The next book of Fr. Furniss's is a very short one, so it should be available quickly, called 'Hymns for Children'.

These short and very easy hymns are great helps for children remembering basics of catechism.

'Hymns for Children' is now available.

If you have not heard 'St. Casimir's Hymn' or 'Daily, daily, sing to Mary' you certainly should, it can be a simple air, or sung by a choir.

When the tomb of St. Casimir was opened for repairs, his body was found incorrupt, and his right hand was found lying on this hymn.
