Absolute Relativism

Absolute Relativism
$3.95
Welcome to the new tyranny "If it feels good, do it." "That's your opinion, and this is mine."

"I don't want to impose my beliefs on others."

And thus the Dictator of Relativism speaks as he has always spoken to seduce humanity into a false sense of freedom.

Pope Benedict XVI, Christ's personally chosen defender of the Truth is fighting back. He recognized this in his homily on April 18, 2005, "We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one's own ego and desires."

Through a down-to-earth, easily accessible Question-and-Answer format, Stefanick's book shows:

Why relativism inherently contradicts its own claims.

What makes it one of the worst ideas in the history of ideas.

How relativism has a direct influence on the morals and virtues of a nation.

Why relativism doesn't even work "in real life."

How relativism is counterproductive to the true practice of tolerance

Why religion which makes claims to absolute truth is finally more tolerant than relativism.

What Christianity has almost singlehandedly done to foster true tolerance in the world.

How all laws legislate morality

What the true meaning of "open-minded" means it's not what you think!

Agony of Jesus: In the Garden of Gethsemane

Agony of Jesus: In the Garden of Gethsemane
Pio, Padre
$4.95
A true treasure of spiritual insights, this little booklet contains the remarkable meditations on the Agony of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane by Blessed Padre Pio, the stigmatist priest. One of his few writings, the booklet also includes many pictures of Blessed Padre Pio from throughout his ministry. Padre Pio's beautiful and descriptive manner of writing provide a wonderful spiritual insight into that last night of Jesus' human life.

Excerpt:

"Jesus has returned to His place of prayer, and another picture, more terrible than the first, presents itself to Him. All our sins with their entire ugliness parade before Him in every detail. He must clothe Himself with this entire unclean mass of human corruption and present Himself before the sanctity of His Father, to expiate everything with individual pains, to render Him all that glory of which they have robbed Him, to cleanse that human cesspool in which man wallows with contemptible indifference.

And all this does not make Him retreat. As a raging sea this mass inundates Him, enfolds Him, oppresses Him. Behold Him before His Father the God of Justice, facing the full penalty of divine justice. He, the essence of purity, sanctity by nature, in contact with sin, indeed, as if He Himself had become a sinner! Who can fathom the disgust that He feels in His innermost spirit? The horror He feels? The nausea, the contempt He senses so vividly? And having taken all upon Himself, nothing excepted, He is crushed by this immense weight, oppressed, thrown down, prostrated. Exhausted, He groans beneath the weight of Divine Justice, before His Father, Who has permitted His Son to offer Himself as a Victim for sin, as one accursed."

The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously..." In this booklet, Ralph Martin takes a look at what Scripture says about the final confrontation and the work of the Evil One.

Hound of Heaven

Hound of Heaven
Thompson, Francis
$8.95

The Classic Victorian poem about Christian angst that still speaks to modern audiences. Accompanied by illustrations that deepen the meaning of the poem.

A portable paperback version of a long poem by the Catholic Victorian poet Francis Thompson that grapples with our relationship with God and faith. The Hound of Heaven was written in 1890, but it foresaw the 20th century themes of existentialism and anxiety in modern times. This poem was much loved by Christian-influenced authors like G. K. Chesterton, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis, and in turn informed their own writing.

"[A] treat in store for you is the edition of the perennial Catholic classic. Francis Thompson's The Hound of Heaven. Jean Young provides beautiful new illustration for this poem. Thompson tells the familiar story of the sinner's flight from God, and God's even more insistent pursuit of the erring soul. . . . The poem has major appeal on many levels. . . . This little edition is great for a thoughtful gift."--The Priest

Scripture, Mercy & Homosexuality

Scripture, Mercy & Homosexuality
$3.95

Our God is a God of mercy: ever ready to love, forgive, and embrace us as his sons and daughters. Yet some of the Bible’s teachings on sexual morality can seem harsh and discriminatory. How can biblical teaching about homosexuality, especially, be compatible with the loving mercy of God?

Some people answer that question by dismissing such teachings as outdated—even embarrassing. Surely the ancient Levitical laws, or the letters of St. Paul, merely reflected the prejudices of their time and place?

In Scripture, Mercy, and Homosexuality, Mary Healy explores all those passages and more in light of the revelation of God’s mercy. She provides a scholarly yet readable explanation of how Scripture actually offers a fully harmonious message about God’s plan for human love and happiness, and shows how the Bible can help us fulfill our call to be the face of God’s mercy to all.

What is the Theology of the Body?

What is the Theology of the Body?
$2.95

The is the first title in the new series edited by Theology of the Body experts Christopher West and Katrina Zeno. In this pamphlet, West introduces us to the core truths behind this revolutionary teaching of Pope John Paul II. He asks the two most fundamental questions of human existence: 1) What does it mean to be human? and 2) How can we find true happiness? He shows how an understanding of who we are as male and female and the spousal meaning of our bodies unlocks the key to these and all of life s questions. God's plan for us is stamped right into our bodies, and knowing this gives us a new lens through which to see our life, our relationships, and the world around us. This pamphlet serves as a great, eye-opening introduction to this life-changing message.
