  • Power Of Reparation


    “The world will be saved when we have a sufficient number of souls devoted to reparation and not before.” – Fr. Raoul Plus, S.J

    The great Jesuit Fr. Raoul Plus lived and wrote in an era of immense suffering – war, early death, religious indifference – that coexisted, not surprisingly, with robust Catholic faith and practice. He called for spiritual maturity before greater scientific advancements.

    In this spiritual masterpiece, Fr. Plus explains every facet of reparation for individual penitents and offers simple, practical ways you can help repair what is falling into ruins in our Church and in our world. You will find inspiring answers to all the key questions about reparation, including:

    *What reparation is and why it matters
    *Why everyone should make reparation
    *How reparation should be made (and what to avoid!)
    *Why devotion to the Sacred Heart and the Holy Eucharist are vital to reparation
    *Why our Lord wants reparation to be the foundation of Christian living

    Fr. Plus’s work is replete with compelling anecdotes that illustrate how developing a spirit of reparation is critical to advancing spiritually. Fr. Plus provides rich insights and examples from our Lady and saints who lived lives of sacrifice, including John the Evangelist, John Vianney, Mary Magdalene, Margaret Mary, and several modern saints.

    Through a dozen scriptural passages that Fr. Plus unpacks, you will learn the theology behind reparation and how to teach it to others. You will also learn how to develop a spirit of reparation according to the circumstances of your life, how to compensate for the sins of others, and why spiritual direction is advised for discerning the types of reparation most suitable for you.

    Above all, you will experience the Call of the King to discover the path that leads to the ultimate goal – joy with the Lord in the afterlife. Each page invites you to enter into Christ’s Heart by sharing in His work of redemption, even in the most seemingly insignificant ways.

    This book, which covers priestly, religious, and lay reparation, includes Pope Pius XI’s celebrated encyclical on reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Miserentissimus Redemptor, as well as a treasury of approved reparation prayers: your complete guide to the nature and practice of reparation.

  • After Christendom


    We are living through the greatest catastrophe since the fall of the Roman Empire. Western civilization isn’t dying: it’s already dead. Christendom is no more. What we see around us now isn’t Christian. It’s not even a civilization. It’s a walking corpse.

    That’s the bad news. The good news is that the West can be reborn someday. We know this because it died once before. Who brought it back? The mystics, the martyrs, and the missionaries. Now they must save the West once again.

    In this prescient work, Michael Warren Davis examines just how bad the situation is and how much worse it’s going to get. He weaves together examples from history and literature to illustrate how societies fell and how various saints helped them rise again. Throughout, he reflects on the transformative power and benefits of persecution and suffering to show how Christians can survive and indeed flourish in the new Dark Age that’s descending.

    These penetrating pages will help you move from a “Culture War” mindset to one of answering the Great Commission. You will learn how to form intentional Christian communities to ward off spiritual isolation and come to understand what St. Augustine, the chief architect of Christendom’s first renaissance, taught about why God allows the City of Man to fall in the first place. Additionally, you will discover:

    *The only weapon in your arsenal (can you guess?)
    *What role laughter played in the early Church’s victory
    *How to attain xenitia, the first stage of spiritual development
    *Methods to grow in union with Christ through meditative prayer
    *The fruits of street evangelization and your call to go into the vineyard
    *How drawing from Eastern Christianity can help renew our culture again

    Above all, you will find out how you can respond to the crisis of the early twenty-first century with the wisdom of the ages – to testify to your Faith, help restore beauty, and cultivate authentic love in the modern world. For, according to Davis, every Christian has a role to play. All are called to share their faith person-to-person to help rebuild the Church, and once again the tears of mystics, the sweat of missionaries, and the blood of martyrs will become the seed of the Church. Despite the darkness, by imitating their witness, you will find unshakable peace and joy in the face of what is to come.

  • Preparation For Total Consecration To The Holy Face Of Jesus


    What does devotion to the Holy Face look like? How does one live out this devotion every single day? Drawing on Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange’s The Three Conversions in the Spiritual Life and Three Ages of the Interior Life, Fr. Lawrence Carney III, author of The Secret of the Holy Face: The Devotion Destined to Save Society, guides the serious soul on a journey of spiritual progress through the Purgative, Illuminative, and Unitive Ways.

In our current chaotic and stressful world, the interior life needs both peace and unity with God. In addition to the traditional spiritual path, Fr. Carney draws on the great spiritual masters who have had explicit devotion to the Holy Face. He includes several schedules to follow that conclude the consecration on specific feast days. Continue your spiritual growth from other consecrations to this highest consecration, namely, to God Himself. Bring about the Triumph of the Catholic Church, the cause for which Jesus gave the Chaplet of the Holy Face to Sister Saint-Pierre.

  • 1 Ordinary Sunday


    Award-winning writer Paula Huston offers a rich spiritual reflection on the origin and meaning of the Catholic Mass.

    For Catholics, the Mass is the “source and summit of the Christian life,” as the documents of the Church put it. Yet many Catholics might confess to not understand in any depth what goes on in a typical celebration of the Eucharist. In One Ordinary Sunday Paula Huston guides us through a Mass at her home parish in a rural California town. Huston’s personal and spiritual reflections offer fresh and often unexpected insights into the profound mystery at the heart of the Catholic faith.

    A natural storyteller, Huston deftly illuminates what might seem either mysterious to those unfamiliar with the Mass or overly familiar to those who have lost an appreciation of its mystery. In the Mass “we are healed and restored and spiritually fed,” she writes. “We are unified and made whole as a people and as a Church. We get a little taste of heaven.”

  • Screwtape Letters And The Catechism


    All of us are faced with the daily onslaught of sin and temptation. We are all involved in a spiritual battle to keep our souls united with Christ so we can attain heaven.

    The Screwtape Letters and the Catechism brings together two wonderful and significant resources that can help us to grow in spiritual courage. Engaging the Catechism of the Catholic Church from a new perspective, against the backdrop of C. S. Lewis’ classic The Screwtape Letters, this book will help you to recognize temptation and engage in the battle against sin. Following Lewis and the Catechism, you will learn how to use the teachings of Christ to outwit the evil one.

    In this book, each chapter of The Screwtape Letters is cross-referenced with the Catechism. By examining the dialogue between the demons Wormwood and Screwtape, we can apply Screwtape’s lessons on temptation to our daily lives. The Catechism provides sound and reasonable explanations of the Catholic Faith, and these explanations debunk the methods of Screwtape. C.S. Lewis masterfully invites us into the diabolical world of Screwtape and Wormwood and the ever-present battle between good and evil. The Catechism, on the other hand, masterfully reveals the teachings of Jesus Christ as a living gift of the Church that shows us the love of God for his children.

  • Behold Believe Become


    Embark on a transformative journey into the heart of Eucharistic worship with Behold, Believe, Become–where the ordinary becomes extraordinary and the Mass becomes a soul-saving, life-changing encounter with Christ, our Eucharistic Lord.

    In Behold, Believe, Become, Timothy P. O’Malley, a distinguished leader in the Eucharistic Revival movement and bestselling author of Becoming Eucharistic People and Real Presence, shows you how to see differently–through newly formed habits of contemplation–fifteen ordinary, physical things that the Church uses at Mass to point us toward Christ. You will explore layers of meaning found in noble doors and stained-glass windows, sunlight and water, oil and fire, altars and church pews, and bread and wine become Body and Blood. O’Malley helps you see how each element tells us something about who Christ is and who we are to become as Christian people.

    Inspired by the towering genius of the twentieth-century liturgical movement, Fr. Romano Guardini (1865-1968), O’Malley offers an unconventional walk through the Mass, highlighting that “matter matters.” This book doesn’t delve into the intricate history of Eucharistic Prayers or the doctrinal meaning of various words and actions. Instead, it provides a unique exploration of the material stuff of the Mass that we encounter from the time we enter the church until the time we depart at the end.

    Whether you’re seeking personal growth or exploring this journey with a small group, Behold, Believe, Become is the perfect companion, providing brief online videos featuring Rachel and Jason Bulman of “Meet the Bulmans” and chapter-ending reflection questions to help connect your everyday life to the celebration of Mass. And for those craving a communal experience, a small-group leader’s guide and parish planning kit make this an invaluable resource for parishes, schools, and other Catholic communities.

    Are you ready to witness the Mass in a new light? Behold, Believe, Become is your key to unlocking a richer, more meaningful Eucharistic experience.

  • Hidden Power Of Silence In The Mass


    In this game-changing book, Fr. Boniface Hicks, O.S.B., reveals how you can actively listen and open yourself to receive God’s personal love for you in the Mass, where our Lord waits to quench your deepest longing and heal your wounds. Drawing from the wisdom of the saints, modern-day spiritual giants, and his own penetrating reflections, you will learn how to quiet your mind, stretch your heart, and become childlike in the sense of experiencing the sacred mysteries with wonder and awe.

    The Mass, as most Catholics are aware, consists of words and gestures through which the Church worships the Father through the Son in the Holy Spirit. But as far fewer Catholics know, the periods of silence are more than pauses or empty spaces, as Fr. Hicks explains. They are beautifully textured with prescribed prayers spoken quietly by the priest, meaningful images such as incense and chalice veils, and expectant faith ready to surrender or receive from God in particular ways. Learning how to attune our hearts to these silences can greatly increase the fruitfulness of our reception of grace at Mass.

    In these soul-enriching pages, you will explore the various textures of silence in general, the ways in which silence affects your interior life, and how silence can draw you into more intimate prayer. You will also find:

    *How our Lady is the supreme model on how to cultivate active and receptive silence

    *The secret to settling slowly into silence, relaxing, and entering into an inner dialogue with God

    *Tips on how to commune with God in your heart and on practicing lectio divina

    *What St. Benedict teaches on developing silence in prayer, speech, activities, and thoughts

    Fr. Hicks further guides you through each of the nine silent (secreto) prayers of the priest, the silent gestures in the Mass, such as the use of incense and the unveiling of the chalice, and the intentional periods of silence, including during the Liturgy of the Word and after receiving Holy Communion.

    You will discover the pattern through which divine life came to earth and how the fire of Christ’s merciful love comes to the soul. Moreover, you will come to understand how your physical silence at Mass fosters your spiritual silence and becomes an “act of love” through self-offering, adoration, communion, and resting in the inexpressible mystery.

    Each chapter includes reflection questions designed to foster group discussions so parish members can reflect on and grow together in

  • Restoring The Lords Day


    Modern society has forgotten that the joie de vivre and the liturgical life are intertwined. Drawing from his experiences growing up in the Catholic culture of New Orleans, author Daniel Fitzpatrick juxtaposes the beauty of taking time to celebrate the Faith with the ongoing cultural drift toward eliminating the Sabbath. The result is a book that will awaken Christians from their spiritual sloth and enable them to appreciate the Lord’s Day more deeply as a means of attaining happiness – in the here and in the hereafter.

    Fitzpatrick masterfully breaks open Scripture, philosophy, psychology, and literature – from Homer to Dante, from St. John Cassian to Evelyn Waugh – positing that we have become Pharaohs within, consumed as we are with anxiety and work. The lines for commerce on Sundays, he points out, stretch out further than those for Holy Communion, while inertia blankets us and idleness saps us of our vitality and zeal.

    Through his fresh insights and contemporary examples, you will discover:

    *How to honor the Lord’s Day and reclaim the freedom to truly worship God
    *Three aspects of the noonday devil’s approach, and how to recognize and defeat them
    *Five ways to reorder your Sunday activities to restore Sabbath festivity and holiness
    *How the Holy Eucharist strengthens and enlightens us on our journey to Heaven
    *Techniques for cultivating the silence of contemplation

    Additionally, you will see why Aquinas, Augustine, and the Desert Fathers identified acedia as an obstacle to advancement in the spiritual life – a sin against the Lord’s Day that often leads people to experience Sunday as a day of anxiety. You will also see how one comes to neglect the dignity of the human person and risks falling prey to immorality when one loses sight of what is holy. Conversely, you will see how living a holy family life, particularly on Sunday, trains us for the heavenly banquet.

    Fitzpatrick also explains how the liturgy is meant to be celebrated in light of the writings of Pope Benedict XVI and other spiritual authors, and how it invites us to partake of the true “heavenly festivity” here on earth while preparing us for everlasting joy with God in Heaven.

  • Welcoming The Holy Spirit With Padre Pio


    Let the Holy Spirit lead you to the Living Water that feeds our well of faith.

    When asked about his spiritual gifts of healing, bilocation, prophecy, and stigmata, Padre Pio replied, “You know, they are a mystery to me, too.” While you might think he is just being modest, he is actually getting at the heart of how the Holy Spirit works in every Christian’s life. We can’t fully understand why God gives us certain gifts, but as we walk with Christ, we can engage with this mystery and journey towards holiness.

    In Welcoming the Holy Spirit with Padre Pio, Susan De Bartoli shares stories and wisdom from the life of this humble monk to show how we can use our unique spiritual gifts to love others and draw from the well of faith to encounter Christ in profound ways.

    Following the success of her Advent devotional, Welcoming the Christ Child with Padre Pio, Susan De Bartoli invites you to explore Padre Pio’s relationship with the third member of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Spirit, who is the source of all spiritual gifts.

    Through the stories of this simple Capuchin priest, you’ll discover what is possible for those who surrender themselves to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. At Baptism, we all receive the fruits of the Spirit–gifts like wisdom, fortitude, and piety–that empower us to “dive deep” into the well of faith. The Holy Spirit also graces some of us with special charisms–supernatural gifts such as healing, teaching, or intercessory abilities–intended to serve the Church. In this book, you’ll learn how to nurture these gifts, just as Padre Pio did, so that even your “ordinary” spiritual gifts and charisms can bless others and deepen your own faith.

    Each chapter offers quotations from Padre Pio, a short story about the saint, prayer, and reflection questions that you can apply to your own life, such as:

    *What are my spiritual gifts and how have I seen them play out in my life already?

    *Am I consistently drinking from the well of faith?

    *What does the Lord want me to do with my life, and how can I use my spiritual gifts to serve the Church?

    *Am I willing to surrender even the good things in my life to glorify the Lord?

    Welcoming the Holy Spirit with Padre Pio is the perfect companion for those who are already drawn to Padre Pio’s spirituality or anyone yearning to strengthen their relationship with the Holy Spirit. Through the example of this extraordinary saint, you will discover how continually drawing from the well of Li

  • Localism : Coming Home To Catholic Social Teaching


    One of the most misunderstood – and misrepresented – elements of the Catholic Church is her social teaching. It is all too often misconstrued and even held hostage by speculative economic theories and partisan politics. When G. K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, and their colleagues endeavored to promote the ideas of property ownership and independence one hundred years ago, it was frequently misinterpreted due to the terminology used. Here, at last, is a clear explanation of authentic Catholic social teaching, with balanced and practical applications that incorporate morality, justice, and freedom.

    This outstanding collection features contributions from some of the finest thinkers in Christianity today, who illustrate the transformative impact of centralization in politics, history, literature, and culture and offer real-life accounts about the success of localism in America and beyond. You will learn:

    *What distributism is, and what it is not
    *Chesterton’s secret to preserving the seed of civilization
    *The true definition of freedom and what it really entails
    *How localism is in harmony with America’s founding principles
    *Five important lessons from “living on the land”
    *Ways technology has eroded localism

    The authors show how solutions tend to originate with the family and involve taking an active role in what most directly affects the family, whether in commerce, government, or education. They explain how to develop a truly localist economy – and why you should – and they emphasize the indispensable role of fathers in this crucial task. They also spell out why building a local community is key to preserving faith, heritage, creativity, beauty, and rational politics. Additionally, the authors propose wise methods for strengthening marriages and educating children in modernity.

    Other topics include suggestions on how to live cooperatively, develop a more agrarian lifestyle for your family, ease into homesteading, and cultivate an environmental ethic compatible with the faith. You will also find practical ways to revitalize your church and foster a healthier way of life for future generations. Whether you are a Christian or not, this book will open your eyes to “what’s wrong with the world” and give you powerful ideas for making it a better place.

  • Discovering The Camino De Santiago


    After the Holy Land and Rome, Santiago de Compostela draws more pilgrims than any other place in the world. For the first time for English-speaking readers, a priest-pastor chronicles the month-long life and times of a pilgrim on this storied walk. In an account both profound and delightful, Fr. Greg Markey relates the challenges he endured and the consolations he enjoyed along the much-celebrated Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James).

    Fr. Markey’s peaceful journey along the five-hundred-mile trail – Web-free, phone-free, and television-free – generated an astonishing array of brief but potent spiritual reflections. Then forty-one years old, Father did not conceal his priesthood, choosing on the contrary to wear the traditional Roman collar. And, unsurprisingly, the fruitful conversations that resulted with pilgrims were reflective, sometimes serious, comforting, and practical.

    Throughout his arduous trek, as recounted in this book, Fr. Markey displayed both a keen mind and a pastoral heart. His mission was successful but not without incident, as he encountered a wide variety of Christians and unbelievers struggling or lost in personal crises, some reflecting upon great loss or rediscovering Christ as the focus of their lives.

    There was plenty of private time along the trail as well. Fr. Markey gleaned spiritual lessons for himself and his flock, to whom he wrote, and he chronicled them in a journal. Through his life-changing witness, you will discover:

    *Stories of searching souls who were touched by a word of faith or a small gift

    *Life lessons from the physical difficulties and temptations he endured on the Way

    *How God unexpectedly speaks to us in our need through His Word and through others

    *Why the Camino is a metaphor for life and the ways in which it attunes the soul to Divine Providence

    *The encouraging bond that exists between Catholics from all places, ages, and walks of life

    You will also learn about the fascinating life of St. James the Greater and miracles of his intercession – including more than twenty interventions on the battlefield – as well as the discovery and authentication of his relics. Pope Benedict XVI’s 2010 homily at Santiago Cathedral is also featured.

    “If there is a powerful lesson on the Camino, it is that I am no longer in control; and just when I have no more strength and no more options, He catches me, reminding me He is ultimately in control.” – Fr. Greg Markey

  • Hypotheses About Jesus


    This famous classic, which sold more than one million copies in Italy alone when originally published, shows how reason, history, and experience confirm the truth of the Gospel. It will take you on a quest to uncover the obscure Jesus of history, challenge you to think about Christianity as a historical religion, and offer you a multitude of reasons to believe in the Christian faith. These pages – written by Vittorio Messori, a secular journalist who converted in adulthood from agnosticism – in fact rely purely on the evidence of facts and history.

    Raised in an atmosphere of rationalism, Messori shares the deeply personal and transformative experience he had one summer when facing life’s ultimate questions. His view on politics, society, and religion changed forever when he encountered the Jesus of the Gospels. This moved him to conduct a historical examination of the roots of Christianity and evaluate the truth of the Gospel, always in the light of faith and reason. This is what you are about to read.

    Messori adopts a compelling journalistic approach, drawing from Blaise Pascal and an array of philosophers, historians, and theologians. As he breaks open the Gospels, you will perceive his shift from doubt and indifference to fascinating discovery and wonder. You will also learn:

    *Ways in which science and archaeology point to belief in God

    *How Christ’s teachings provide universal insights on human nature and behavior

    *Logical arguments that debunk the views of mythologizers and critics

    *Three possible solutions for “the problem of Jesus”

    *Authentic answers to those skeptical of Jesus’ Messianic origins

    *How kerygma points to the proclamation of Christ even before the Gospels were written

    Messori also examines how Marxist ideology and Enlightenment philosophy stand up under the lens of historical scrutiny. He further discusses the roles of the apostles and women in the Gospels, along with eyewitness accounts. You will learn about the impact of Christianity on culture, how Christianity differs from other religions, and symbolism in Christian belief.

    Throughout this journey, you will observe how the message of Christ endures through time. Above all, you will see how the Gospels teach true equality and how our Lord offers the liberty that we all seek as He revolutionizes the world with His ever-present love.

  • Called On The Way


    Discipleship is not a program to be implemented or a goal to be achieved but a lifelong walk with Christ, who is the way.

    Our calling by Christ to be his disciples is so fundamental to our faith that we sometimes fail to realize its meaning. What does it mean to be called? What is a disciple? In Called on the Way: The Daily Practice of Discipleship, authors Kathleen Cahalan and Laura Kelly Fanucci explore through personal stories, Scripture readings, and prayer experiences, what it means to be called a disciple “on the way.”

    Through our roles and relationships, each person is blessed with many callings to heed God’s invitation to follow the way of Christ. Calling is something we do, someone we are, and someone we become and the image of “the way” is the central biblical theme of our journey together . Called on the Way includes seven practical ways you can understand and live out your own call to discipleship as a follower, worshiper, witness, neighbor, forgiver, prophet, and steward. Each chapter includes a personal story, biblical foundation, and connections to saintly and sacramental practice. Reflection questions help identify how you and your parish community can live the life of discipleship in the time and place where God is leading you and calling you now.

  • All My Eyes See


    Father William Hart McNichols is widely known as one of the world’s most gifted living religious artists and iconographers. A former Jesuit and student of the famed Franciscan iconographer Robert Lentz, Fr. Bill’s icons have been honored with exhibitions in major U.S. cities and the subject of a full-length documentary. Recently his years of ministry to the dying during the AIDS crisis in New York City were the focus of a podcast, and later a book, by journalist Michael O’Laughlin.

    Through interviews with writer and theologian Chris Pramuk, Fr. Bill shares the moving story of his early loneliness and sense of being set apart for some purpose–a purpose realized in his twin vocations as priest and artist. From early childhood, his art expressed his inner life, with special attention to the beauty of the world, the vulnerability of children, and God’s compassionate solidarity with those who suffer. During his AIDS ministry, this took new focus with such works as his “AIDS Crucifixion.” Later, after apprenticeship with iconographer Robert Lentz, he began a new life, producing hundreds of icons of Christ, Mary, the saints, and many holy people of our time.

    More than a catalog of an artist’s work All My Eyes See is a deep journey into the heart of a great spiritual teacher.

  • Heart At The Heart Of The World


    Ecology & Justice Series

    Traditional forms of devotion to the Sacred Heart, also known as the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have waned among Catholics in recent decades. Here, Mary Frohlich, a sister of the Sacred Heart, seeks to reinterpret this traditional devotion as central to Christian spirituality in the 21st century. Facing our impending ecological disaster she sets out to discover the Heart of God as truly the heart of all creation.

    Drawing upon recent theologies that have embraced the “new animism” that regards every being including humans as a node in webs of living relationality, this book chooses twelve themes relevant to the concerns and needs of today’s world and explores what story of the Heart of God may be told in relation to each one.

  • Hearing Our Prayers


    How do we hear our prayers? In the words of philosopher Gemma Corradi Fiumara, there can “be no saying without hearing, no speaking which is not an integral part of listening, no speech which is not somehow received.” Therefore, hearing should be considered an essential aspect of participation in Christian worship. However, although almost all studies of Christian worship attend to the words spoken and sung, almost none consider how worshippers hear in the liturgical event.

    In Hearing Our Prayers, Juliette Day draws upon insights from liturgical studies, philosophy, psychology, acoustical science, and architectural studies to investigate how acts of audition occur in Christian worship. The book discusses the different listening strategies worshippers use for speech, chant, and music, as well as for silence and noise: why paying attention in church can be so difficult and how what we hear is affected by the buildings in which worship takes place. Day concludes by identifying “liturgical listening” as a particular type of ritual participation and emphasizes that liturgical listening is foundational for the way in which we pray, and think about God, the church, and the world.

  • Great Campaign : Against The Great Reset


    “It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo,” says Samwise Gamgee. “Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That there is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.”

    Many have likened the past few years to a dystopian novel or a thriller movie due to unprecedented oppression, violence, loss of rights, and weaponization of science and technology at the hands of powerful people with dark intentions. It’s coming into ever-clearer focus that the unified, global pandemic response – the forced lockdowns, vaccine and mask mandates, fear-filled media coverage, and restrictions on public worship – stripped citizens of their civil liberties and transformed our society.

    Leaving no stone unturned, award-winning film producer and human rights activist Jason Jones incisively lays out a full-scale campaign against this “Great Reset” to help equip you with the armor to protect and defend yourself, your loved ones, and all those vulnerable to the antihuman designs of global elites who have demonstrated a propensity for trampling basic human rights to achieve their one-world vision. Jones exposes the stealth tactics of the Great Reset leaders and reveals what they really mean by their “build back better” and “you’ll own nothing and like it” slogans. Reflecting on historical precedents dating back to biblical times, Jones sounds a red alert and offers a plan for pushing back against the political, Church, and corporate apostasy still unfolding around us.

    The incessant fear-mongering and propagandizing by the radical reformers, Jones explains, is undermining the health of the nation and robbing young people of their ability to reason and experience authentic love. But we can reverse course, he argues, and the time to do so is now.

    In this prescient work, you will find examples of people – past and present – who heroically model ways to overcome the mightiest walls of resistance. You will learn:

    *The five “ideologies of evil” that constitute a genuine pandemic (You will be shocked!)
    *Three forgotten aspects of piety that need restoration
    *How victimization has made victims of us all
    *The secret to living the gospel and avoiding cooperating with evil
    *Practical ways to strengthen families and communities through subsidiarity
    *Why the right to private property is essential to preserving human dignity

  • Confusion In The Kingdom


    What is going on in the Church today??

    There has always been variety within the Catholic family-different ways to pray, different approaches to the supernatural mysteries, different moral and doctrinal emphases to meet the challenges of every age and place. But always united in the one recognizable Faith.

    These days, however, all those harmonized differences of the past have given way to a cacophony of dissent, fracturing Catholic unity and pitting the body of Christ against itself. The world, which used to see the Church as an unshakeable rock of certainty (even when it hated us!), now looks at the many self-proclaimed liberal or “progressive” clerics, leaders, and influencers and isn’t sure anymore what Catholicism actually teaches and doesn’t teach, permits and forbids, blesses and condemns.

    And not just the world-many Catholics, too, are looking at this mess and throwing up their hands.

    In Confusion in the Kingdom, apologist Trent Horn (Why We’re Catholic) helps you make sense of the present chaos by examining the factions of progressive Catholicism and their beliefs, showing why they’re not representative of Catholic orthodoxy and exposing the harm and scandal they have caused.

    Even better, he explains how to argue against those liberal errors you’re most likely to encounter on social media or at a family gathering. Whether it is in matters of doctrine, political and social teachings related to justice and the common good, or the many areas where liberal Catholics want to rewrite traditional Christian teaching on sex and the family, if there’s a progressive Catholic notion causing confusion, Trent is there to shine on it the clear light of perennial truth.

  • Unveiling The Sixth Station Of The Cross


    “Convert us, O God; and shew us thy face, and we shall be saved” (Psalm 80:3).

    Although many are familiar with the Holy Face Devotion, key fruits and wonders remain untold, and various of its most important spiritual treasures have yet to be discovered – until now.

    In these extraordinary pages, Mary Jane Zuzolo unveils for you how this devotion is prefigured in the book of Job, complements Fatima and other Marian apparitions, encompasses the spirituality of St. Therese, crowns the insights of the great Carmelite mystics, affirms the Mariology of St. Louis de Montfort, and has generated more miracles than the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes.

    Words of Christ from approved private revelations describe the Holy Face Devotion as “the most beautiful work under the sun” and “the greatest source of grace second to the sacraments.” Zuzolo further reveals:

    *The Miracle of the Vatican, in which the Holy Face image became enlivened, serving as catalyst for the related wonder-working at the hands of Ven. Leo Dupont.

    *The woman in the Gospel who was designated by Christ in private revelations as the model of reparation to His wounded Countenance – and whose “reward” prefigured that which He promises for devotees of the Holy Face Devotion.

    *How reparation to the Holy Face relates to the Holy Sacrament of the Altar and is complementary to the Sacred Heart and Divine Mercy devotions.

    *How St. Joan of Arc was the forebearer of the Holy Face Devotion in her dramatic assistance of the preservation of Catholicism in France.

    *How the Holy Face Devotion serves as an antidote to communism and modernism.

    The Holy Face Devotion, Zuzolo explains, was bestowed by Christ “as a new pledge of mercy.” Its graces flowing though “Our Lady of the Holy Name of God” and its preference by God to all other devotions together give the affectionate title “Mother of All Devotions” dual significance.

    In our time of heightened sin and darkness, the Holy Face Devotion is a means of imploring the Countenance of Christ to “turn toward us” and restore life and light to the world through conversion of the masses. Unlike any other, the Holy Face Devotion is centered on reparation to the Godhead Itself. In recompense, Our Lord promises to imprint His Image, the very “seal of the Divinity,” upon the soul of the devotee. Practicing this devotion is therefore an invaluable aid to our individual salvation, as well as that of our brethren. It is spiritual armament

  • Interior Life Of Saint Ghomas Aquinas


    Many are well aware of St. Thomas Aquinas’s intellectual prowess – his genius in metaphysics and supernatural theology that pierced the depths of truth. However, few know about the private spiritual life of this illustrious Doctor of the Church. This work, written by Msgr. Martin Grabmann, a foremost authority on Aquinas, is unique in its telling of the holiness of St. Thomas’s priestly soul.

    Neither a purely devotional nor a strictly scientific treatment of the interior life of St. Thomas, this book combines the two to help you appreciate the character of the Angelic Doctor. Through St. Thomas’s own words, you will come to understand how and why he learned more at the feet of the Crucified One than from the innumerable books he read.

    In this revealing book, you will gain insights into Aquinas’s heart through his works and the acts of his canonization process. Msgr. Grabmann highlights three areas in the saint’s interior life: wisdom, charity, and peace. St. Thomas asked God that he might think like Christ, love like Christ, and be at peace like Christ, so his soul and actions were ordered after those of Jesus Christ, and his writings on intimacy with God flowed from his own experience of this communion.

    St. Thomas spent his life in contemplative prayer, study, writing, and preaching. It is said that he began his writings with prayer and was often moved to tears. Through testimonies about the Angelic Doctor, you will learn about his untold mysticism and discover:

    *The secret to developing fervent charity and attaining spiritual delight
    *The threefold wisdom in which St. Thomas found the meaning and happiness of life
    *Thomas’s exemplary purity and temperance and how he ordered his whole life toward God
    *His self-sacrifice, kindness, and charity and why he was called the Cherubim of the Eucharistic mystery

    Revered as one of the greatest thinkers of all time, St. Thomas also possessed the faith of a child. You will be astounded by the true stories of his humility and patience in instructing beginners in the spiritual life and the mercy and compassion he extended to others.

  • Citizens Yet Strangers


    It’s hard — and getting harder — to discern the proper relationship between our Catholic Faith and American political life. Democrat, Republican, third party, or independent — how do we make sense of it all?

    Citizens Yet Strangers resets the framework of how we engage with politics as Catholics. As author Kenneth Craycraft argues in this book, American Catholics have been more influenced by classical liberal political theory (of both the “conservative” and “liberal” variety) than by historic Catholic moral theology. While some incidental policy positions of the Democratic and Republican parties converge with Catholic moral teaching, for most Catholics, their respective positions are directed by their party affiliation, not by Catholic moral doctrine.

    Craycraft explains how Catholic theology transcends partisan politics, and he challenges Catholics to move away from the individualist liberal impulses of American political identity, whether on the left or the right. Avoiding the common cliches that prevent us from examining the role our faith should play in our public actions, this book dives deeper into the very way we orient our moral and political lives.

    The Canticle of the Creatures “is Francis’s love song. It is Franciscan wholeness, for in it is contained the depth of his prayer and of his life in Christ. In its singing he was singing his dying and his rising, for his song was a journey of praise and thanksgiving for his place of origin and his destination, the Most High, All-Powerful, Good Lord.”–Murray Bodo

    Using St. Francis’s canticle as a framework, Murray Bodo, a Franciscan friar, and Susan Saint Sing, a secular Franciscan, reflect on the vision of Francis and Clare as it has played out over the course of their own lives. Susan’s experiences of healing during trips to Assisi and praying in nature and Murray’s deep understanding of Francis and Clare as poets and mystics come together in a duet that brings God’s love song to life.

    These deeply personal reflections explore the power of prayer and meditation, the sacredness of all creation, and the pull of sacred places. This meditative, reflective reading experience conveys what a lifetime of Franciscan spirituality looks like and will draw you into exploring your own experience of the vision of Francis and Clare.

  • From Union Square To Rome


    Preface by Robert Ellsberg

    With a New Foreword by

    Pope Francis

    “‘Praise God’ is the title of this letter. For when human beings claim to take God’s place, they become their own worst enemies.”

    In Laudato Si’, his historic encyclical of 2015,Pope Francis firmly established ecological concerns as central to the agenda of Catholic Social Teaching. Along with a spiritual framework on care for creation, he outlined such issues as climate change, biodiversity, and the peril facing our oceans, and offered a comprehensive guide to integral ecology.

    Now, comes a shorter but even more urgent call: Laudate Deum, which focuses specifically on the climate crisis. As Erin Lothes Biviano writes in her introduction, Pope Francis here writes as a prophet, priest, poet, and most of all “a pastor, deeply concerned for people throughout the world, and above all for the poor.” Disappointed that not enough has been done in the intervening years, Francis addresses the irreversible effects of increasing global temperatures, the decrease in ice sheets, and other signs of the times. He critiques the “technocratic paradigm,” the ongoing addiction to a fossil-fuel economy, and the “weaknesses of international politics,” while leveling particular criticism at those who sow resistance and confusion.

    With selections in this edition from Laudato Si’ that focus on pastoral, theological, and spiritual themes, Laudate Deum is a call to face the preeminent crisis of our times and to draw on all our spiritual wisdom, scientific knowledge, and political will to meet the challenge.

  • Father Ed : The Story Of Bill W’s Spiritual Sponsor


    Father Ed is the first biography of Father Edward Dowling, SJ (1898-1960), whose guidance transformed Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson’s life and deepened the spirituality of the twelve-step movement. Trained as a journalist, Dowling was always drawn to those who were suffering–a sympathy enhanced by his own crippling infirmities–which led him to embrace the A.A. approach to healing in community. Father Ed is a portrait of the kind of priest Pope Francis has extolled as a “shepherd with the smell of the sheep.”

  • Too Small A World


    “The world is too small,” Saint Frances Cabrini (1850-1917) once declared. “I would like to embrace it all, to reach every corner.” This compelling, authoritative biography chronicles the astounding life of a petite Italian-born religious sister who, with the heart of a missionary, conquered all odds to become the first American citizen canonized a saint.

    Theodore Maynard traces Cabrini’s journey from her humble beginnings in northern Italy to her pioneering mission across the United States serving the poor and the sick on a massive scale. Between her work with immigrants (in New York, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, New Orleans, and beyond), her building of schools, orphanages, and hospitals, and her founding of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Mother Cabrini’s entrepreneurial work would change the course of American history, marking it with Christ’s mercy.

    Maynard draws his material directly from the official files for Cabrini’s canonization, from her letters, and from interviews with Missionary Sisters who were close to her. What emerges from this complex portrait is a woman of boundless compassion, courage, and energy, whose legacy continues to inspire people around the world today.

    “If anybody could effect the impossible,” writes Theodore Maynard, “it was this Italian nun.”
