What our readers say about our books
Message for Priests of Australia
Priests of Australia gives a small sample of the rich history of the Australian Catholic priesthood. It also provides a glimpse into the lives of present day priests and seminarians. At this time of the Church’s life, in the words of Mr Tim Fischer (Former Ambassador and ex Deputy PM, Tim Fischer AC), ‘the many are suffering because of the few. We can benefit from being reminded of the blessings that flow from the apostolic efforts of dedicated priests. It is my hope that Priests of Australia will be welcomed enthusiastically by our Catholic families. I encourage priests, Pastoral Councils and Catholic schools to help with its distribution.
May the Lord bless this project. Yours sincerely in Christ,
Archbishop Denis Hart, ARCHBISHOP OF MELBOURNE
President , Australian Catholic Bishops Conference
In my experience as Head of School, and a teacher of Religious Education and seeing things now from the perspective of Bishop, there is a great need for a book such as this one. I recommend Making the Most of the Mass to all who are called to teach our Catholic faith in the schools and parishes.

Bishop of the Diocese of Port Pirie
Making the Most of the Mass explains very simply to primary and secondary student the meaning and structure of the Mass. At a time when many young people have not been introduced to the Mass by their families, I have found this book of immense value in giving them an appreciation of the Eucharist — the heart of our faith.
