First Comes Love: Finding Your Family in the Church and the Trinity
Scott Hahn, in First Comes Love, uses the idea of family to explain Catholic thought about the Trinity. Hahn sees the relations among the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as a model for the relations within every family composed of father, mother and children. And he believes that the family of the Church helps people emulate the Trinitarian family and can heal them when they fall short of such holiness.

That We May Perfectly Love Thee
For Catholics, observance of the Eucharist is the unique celebration of Christ's passion, death and resurrection. In this small gift book, Benson finds meaning in all of the elements that comprise the Catholic Mass, beginning with the entrance to the worship service, continuing through the sermon and the prayers of the people to the liturgical centrepiece: the Eucharist, which Benson calls "the Word made flesh."
