  • 100 Ways John Paul 2nd Changed The World

    $17.95

    “There is no evil to be faced that Christ does not face with us. There is no enemy that Christ has not already conquered. There is no cross to bear that Christ has not already borne for us, and does not now bear with us.”

As a young man during the Nazi occupation of Poland, he studied in an underground seminary. As pope, he was instrumental in the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe. Through it all, he maintained an unwavering hope in the ultimate triumph of love, truth, and beauty. He remains a hero to millions of people for his unflinching defense of the Church and her teachings.

    John Paul II changed the world forever in many ways; this book describes 100 of the most important. Each of the 100 accomplishments, teachings, or stories about John Paul II is fascinating, providing a glimpse into the astounding life and impact of this great and beloved saint.

  • Auschwitz And Absolution

    $29.00

    Few people know that in the face of his execution, the notorious Rudolf Hoss, the Commandant for Auschwitz, met with a Polish Jesuit priest, Fr. Wladyslaw Lohn. Hoss made a confession to Fr. Lohn for approximately four hours, and from Fr. Lohn he received communion. This compelling account of a secret and sacramental meeting not only tells what happened but seventeen Christian and Jewish scholars offer a critical challenge to, or celebration of Christian notions of forgiveness.

    We have access to Hoss’s confession by way of selections from his published memoirs. Fr. Lohn said almost nothing about his encounter and certainly nothing about the confession itself. In addition to writing a thorough introduction to this encounter, in order to contemplate the priest’s thoughts, James Bernauer has composed a work of imagination, a diary of how this Jesuit might have scrutinized this meeting. Bernauer’s hope is that, in addition to giving a sense of a historical encounter, the reader will perform their own imaginative reflection on the issues. Throughout the work, the limitations on religious absolution of sin are heightened by recall of alternative Christian practices (historical and contemporary), as well as Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s warnings about “cheap grace.”

  • Devil And Communist China

    $29.95

    As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said, “Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions.” This is certainly true of the leaders of the Communist “dynasty” that currently rules China. Chairman Mao, the founder of the Red Dynasty, proudly referred to himself as wu fa wu tian–a Chinese phrase meaning that he was both Godless and lawless. His hatred of God was matched only by his rejection of all authority other than his own.

    The current occupant of the Dragon Throne, Xi Jinping, has a thriving personality cult, including a Xi Jinping app that everyone must have on their phones, which downloads daily readings from Xi’s speeches and writings. Churches are being turned into “Civilization Practice Stations for the New Era,” their Bibles confiscated and replaced with Xi’s collected works, sermons replaced with political indoctrination of the “Thou shalt have no other gods before you than the CCP” kind. Pictures of Jesus Christ are taken down and 2replaced with pictures of Chairman Mao and Secretary Xi
    .
    In The Devil and Communist China, Steven W. Mosher lays out in great detail the diabolical self-aggrandizement rooted in Chinese ancient political theory, called Legalism, which established the prototype for the totalitarian rule that the Chinese people suffer under today. It is perhaps no accident that the red dragon has been China’s archetypal symbol since the nation’s unification in 220 BC. The Devil’s false promise has always been “You shall be as Gods,” and China’s leaders down to the present day continue to make this Faustian bargain, to the detriment of the Chinese people and–ultimately–their own souls.

  • Doors Of Mercy

  • Festa Paschalia : A History Of The Holy Week Liturgy In The Roman Rite

    $30.50

    This book provides the first comprehensive history in English for eighty years of the origins and development of the Holy Week liturgy in the Roman Rite. Describing how the first apostles and disciples, and their immediate successors, came during the years following 33 AD to celebrate annual feast of the Resurrection, and the form which this first-century celebration took, it goes on to explain in detail how the ceremonies with which we are familiar today began in fourth-century Jerusalem. These ceremonies were then elaborated and developed during the early and late Middle Ages in Western Europe, particularly in the Frankish kingdom, and at Rome itself, down to the Tridentine reform of the sixteenth century, a reform which endured for some four hundred years with very little change.

    Looking at the two significant twentieth-century reforms of the rites, that of 1955 and that of 1970, Philip J. Goddard then explains the various changes which were made, the source from which innovations were introduced, and the reasons for the introduction of those changes and innovations, as given (so far as possible) by those involved in making them.

    While accessible to the ordinary reader with no particular knowledge of liturgical history, this study will be of great interest to liturgical specialists and scholars, to those in seminaries and religious orders or to clergy interested in the history of the Roman liturgy. Comprehensive notes give full references to both primary and secondary sources.

  • Home Heaven And Hitlers Hell

    $27.99

    In spite of all the stories about Germany during Hitler’s heyday, virtually nothing has been written about the 105 Marian Apparitions that occurred from 1937 – 1940. The sightings happened in Heede, a village close to the Dutch border and less than twenty miles from the birthplace of author Hans Rolfes. Totally unexpected, not unlike what took place in Lourdes, the sightings were seen by four local girls. This raised the ire in Berlin to such an extent that the girls, then 11 to 13, were placed in a mental institution and a hospital for ten weeks. Hitler’s obsessive interest was the industrial behemoth Krupp and its nearby firing range, where the “Big Bertha” rattled dishes in the author’s home as it threw one-ton shells airborne. The events in Heede, so good, so pure, so hard-to-explain had no value for him. Today he and his ilk are gone, but tens of thousands of Christians flock annually to the area. The veil of silence surrounding Heede was lifted only recently, with its official recognition as a Marian Prayer Site. Many more events are described, including the author’s unbelievable experience when he and other boys investigated an Allied bomb that suddenly, precipitously, exploded…. Hans G. Rolfes is a retired professional engineer who lives in Westchester, N.Y. He was a senior consultant for General Foods for a quarter century-the basis for his book, General Foods, America’s Premier Food Company. He has visited and studied at the apparition site in Heede, Germany, many times.

  • Letters To The Romans And Galatians

    $14.99

    Who wrote the Letters to the Romans and Galatians? Why were these letters composed? What were the major arguments in early Christian communities? How does lectio divina move us to pray with Scripture? Rev. Anderson writes that, “each of [Paul’s letters] addresses particular issues and arguments within the community to whom he was writing.”
    Although he never preached in Rome, yet converted many in Galatia, he had much of the same message in both letters. The primary issue that is addressed by Paul in his letters is how to assimilate the Old and New covenants — the communities as a mixture of Jews and Gentiles were beginning to live their Christian faith together. As their traditions and newfound teachings would clash, arguments would arise. Paul’s letters were written with love and concern for the communities to which he sent them. And as these conflicts would arise, his letters helped these communities to work through divisions and act lovingly towards one another.
