Full Version: Pleasant surprise in Catholic (ish) store

There is a Catholic store in my city, the Guild, and they often have a tendency to have less than traditional items. This is the same store where I jokingly asked for a childrens Bible in Latin.

Today, I was crusing around the aisles, mostly to kill time before the bus came, and I saw in the Bible section (which is filled with NAB and RSV or whatever) and there was a new member there. There was a D-R bible which was very nice on the rack. I picked it up and it had all the proper notes in it about the history and origins and even a Papal Encyclical Letter about it (or the Bible in general, I didn't review it much).

This is a pretty big thing I think, as this is the first time I've seen the D-R in a RL store. It has to be there for a reason.

There are also guides and books about the Latin mass mixed in with the new mass books, but I think those have been there for a while.
Was it a Baronius Press one?  My boyfriend and I have those and they have the papal document about the Holy Bible in them.  :-)

No, it was an edition I've never seen before.

This is great news.  If you don't have a Douay already, and can afford it, why not buy it?  You could also inform some like-minded friends about this and ask the store to order some more in.  This could send out a pretty strong message.

I was thinking the same thing; there must be some demand for it, from somewhere, or else it wouldn't be there.  Bookstores in even the most conservative dioceses will still contain modernist titles, but it's great that there seems to be some positive progress in your diocese.  What's your bishop like in terms of Tradition etc?

I have two (three) already (a pocket one, the D-R and Vulgate one from Baronius, and that used to be my mother's).

I can't afford it either really, although it is a good price. All my friends are online as well :)

I did once, a long time ago, ask about different Bible versions (I was looking for the Jerusalem version at the time) and I mentioned the D-R as I noticed they didn't have any and they told me they don't get books from Baronius. Next time I'm there, I'll try to see what the publisher is.

The Bishop is Bishop Martino. The one who constantly defends the faith, no matter what. You may see him mentioned on this forum ocassionally.
