This beautifully designed book will help readers celebrate Catholicism throughout the years, across daily practice and milestones. The Catholic Catalogue is a field guide, a list of far ranging topics, that should aid any Catholic, whether steeped in the tradition or just discovering spirituality for the first time, to understand the daily acts that make up a Catholic life. And like the most useful field guides, it is divided into user-friendly sections and covers such topics as the veneration of relics, blessing your house, discovering a vocation, raising teenagers, getting a Catholic tattoo, planting a Mary garden, finding a spiritual director, and exploring your own way in the tradition.
With more than 75 inspiring chapters, this book promises to be a resource that individuals and families will turn to again and again, helping to make room in their busy lives for mystery and meaning, awe and joy.

"Putting the richness of Catholic liturgy and life on full display, Melissa Musick and Anna Keating show us that Christianity is constituted by keeping habits, performing practices, and embodying the traditions of the church. This book will be useful to Catholics, indeed to all Christians, looking for ways to make their faith practical. At one point, this remarkable mother-and-daughter team quote Thomas Aquinas who reminds us, The things we love tell us what we are. The Catholic Catalogue instructs us in the virtue of love and thus helps to make us what we are called to be: disciples." Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School
"Honest, graceful, wry, informative, wonderfully unegotistically erudite, and a startling pleasure to read. Also a long inky lovely prayer of celebration and love and reverence and delight in Catholicism as a verb, seems to me."Brian Doyle, author of Grace Notes and How the Light Gets In
"It is written that faith without works is dead; one could not ask for a better guide to a lively life of faith. The Catholic Catalogue offers ritual recipes for the everyday and extraordinary moments alike; presenting often-neglected wonders from two thousand years of tradition in precisely the form we need them today. Every domestic church should have one." Nathan Schneider, author of God in Proof: The Story of a Search from the Ancients to The Internet
