Correction: the Pope's book is already out

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Feb 18, 2009

A few weeks ago, as I sent out the day's CWN headlines, I commented that some enterprising publisher should collect the Pope's weekly reflections and publish them in book form. I was thinking specifically of Pope Benedict's series of weekly talks, delivered at his Wednesday public audiences, on the early Church Fathers.

Here's what I didn't know: It's already been done. The Fathers, from Our Sunday Visitor Press, is exactly the collection I'd suggested.  OSV also offers The Apostles, also based on the Holy Father's weekly talks. I hope it's safe to say that they'll soon have another volume that includes the Pope's brilliant series on St. Paul.
