Alternative Catholic

serves as a gateway to help you find an inclusive Eucharistic Community near to where you live or travel. Some are small, others large, and each one is unique. What they have in common is that they gather to celebrate Catholic Mass (Eucharist) on a regular basis, and they are inclusive, welcoming communities. Most are Independent Catholic communities or Reformed Catholic Communities that offer an alternative Catholic experience.

Sacred Heart Songs

Sacred Heart Songs
by Marie S. David

Pour yourself a cup of tea and then savor every page of this inspiring book.  Marie shares her own journey from pain to passion and invites you along for the ride. Each chapter’s reflections invite you to explore the dreams in your heart and to let them sing!” 

 Nicole Sotelo, author of WOMEN HEALING FROM ABUSE:  Meditations for Finding Peace.

Share in the stories of those who have traveled similar paths and learn about the benefits of Reiki upon their well-being.  Through a unique weaving of spirit and science, Sacred Heart Songs provides clear markers along the path to safety and wellness, freeing the songs of our hearts.  Each of us has an inner wisdom, intimately woven in God’s spirit of truth.  This wisdom is waiting to guide us through disease to wellness. Contemplative reflections at the end of each chapter engage the process of dialoging with our hearts and souls as they call out to us with the truths and dreams of our lives.

Papal Expectations
and the
Gospel According to Lucia
by J.F. David

Papal Expectations


The Vatican has many secrets hidden behind its walls, but this one is a whopper - the Pope is pregnant!

The race is on as those closest to the Pope try to safeguard the secret and protect the unborn child from the clandestine forces that attempt to control all that happens in this ancient city. Power, ambition, and even murder can't stop the Divine plan from unfolding and birthing a new and much needed perspective on the Gospel.
