We Believe: Meditations, 2007 - 156 sivua
Richard Maffeo has written a heartfelt and heartwarming commentary on the Nicene Creed. His words and story will help every reader recognize the Risen Lord on their journey of life. - Fr. Michael McDermott, Pastor, St. Charles Borromeo, Tacoma, WA. Rich Maffeo provides us with a wonderful meditation on the fundamental profession of our Catholic faith. These meditations come out of a long and reflective spiritual journey that has taken him from Evangelical Protestant churches to a faithful and practicing member of the Roman Catholic community. This is a must read for laymen and women who seek a better understanding of Catholic faith in relationship to the experiences of daily living. Richard shares his journey and faith so each of us may grow together as a Holy People. - Fr. Thomas FX Hoar, SSE, Ph.D, President of St. Edmund's Retreat, Mystic, CT. For more than three decades, Richard Maffeo worshiped in evangelical Protestant churches. He earned his baccalaureate and masters degrees from Pentecostal schools. His religious articles have appeared in dozens of Christian publications. In 2003, a friend challenged him to study Catholic doctrine and compare it to what he already knew of Scripture and Church history. What he discovered caught him by surprise. Two years later, during the Easter Vigil of 2005, Richard was received into the Catholic Church. Richard and his wife, Nancy, attend St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, in Tacoma, Washington, where he serves as a catechist for sixth graders and a Lay Eucharistic Minister. He and his wife are married more than thirty-two years and have three grown children. This is his first book. His second - A Journey of Reflection - has a plannedpublication date in 2008.
