Aquinas on the Four Last Things: Everything You Need to Know about Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell

Vost, Kevin
$17.95
We think of an end as something that comes last, which is certainly the case with the Four Last Things - Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell. They certainly do come last, at the end of our lives and at the end of the world. The Church's great Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas, reminds us that proper actions are determined by their ends, their ultimate goals or final endpoints. In this sense, an end is an organizing and motivating principle. Becoming increasingly mindful of the death, judgment, and heaven or hell that await us all at the end, should provide for us a new beginning, a beginning of good choices, choices that abhor and reject sin while helping us grown in virtue and closeness to Christ during our brief time on earth. Indeed, there is absolutely nothing of greater importance to each and every one of us than how and where we will spend eternity, enrapt in the unspeakable bliss of the beatific vision of God in heaven, or suffering unspeakable torments within the depths of hell.

Brilliant: 25 Catholic Scientists, Mathematicians, and Supersmart People

Warren, David Michael
$24.95
Think faith and science don't go together? Think again! It's important to teach children at a young age that faith and science are complementary! Too many people today--adults and children--think that faith and science don't go together. In fact, many people who leave the Catholic Church report that they don't believe faith is compatible with science. Sadly, one study found that the median age of people who leave the Church is surprisingly young: thirteen. In an effort to help children learn about the relationship between faith and science, the Daughters of St. Paul, a premiere publisher of Catholic children's books for over seventy years through Pauline Books & Media, have partnered with the Word on Fire Institute to present an exciting new book for children: Brilliant! 25 Catholic Scientists, Mathematicians, and Supersmart People. The book introduces children to many of the Catholics who have been behind groundbreaking discoveries in science and math for centuries. Children will embark on an adventure through history where they'll meet faith-filled pioneers in every field from anatomy to astrophysics. They'll walk in the footsteps of these supersmart Catholics who changed the world and learn how brilliant they can be when they unite faith and science! Features & Benefits - Twenty-five biographies of some of the greatest Catholic scientists, mathematicians, and inventors - Writing is not dry and textbook-like but fun and inviting - Gorgeous illustrations for each person highlighted - For children ages 7-11 - Includes a helpful Glossary of both scientific and religious terms

Catholic Scientist Champions the Shroud of Turin

Catholic Scientist Champions the Shroud of Turin
Verschuuren, Gerard
$17.95
The Shroud of Turin is celebrated as one of the holiest and most important relics of Christianity, with millions of pilgrims traveling to see the precious cloth in Italy on the rare occasions it has been displayed. Yet despite its enormous global popularity, the Shroud's authenticity is not without question. To address lingering uncertainties head-on, celebrated Catholic scientist Dr. Gerard Verschuuren explores and synthesizes the various scientific studies conducted on the Shroud --including those analyzing DNA, blood, carbon, pollen, textile, and anatomical issues -- as well as its storied history. He then scrutinizes the motives of the individual scientists performing these studies, the assumptions they employed to arrive at their conclusions, and the instances in which they veered into areas outside the competence of the sciences. After this exhaustive and highly satisfying analysis, Dr. Verschuuren reveals the reasons why he believes the Shroud of Turin to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ, the crucified Savior of mankind. And he celebrates it as a rare instance in which the science and faith communities can meet each other -- and agree.

Christ Unfurled: The First 500 Years of Jesus's Life

Christ Unfurled: The First 500 Years of Jesus's Life
Meconi, David
$27.95
In this compelling new work, Father David Meconi tells the exciting story of, as the subtitle says, the first 500 years of Christ's life. How can that be, readers may ask, if Christ lived only 33 years on earth. Therein lies the uniqueness of Meconi's approach to this history. In these pages, he shows how the early Christians understood the Church not as a set of teachings or even as one more religion among many, but as the extension of Christ himself. The Church is ultimately the deifying union between Christ the Head and his sanctified members. Just as the Lord unfurls himself into the Eucharist, Jesus Christ also extends his divinely human presence into his Mystical Body, the Church. By focusing on the development of the early Church and the first 4 ecumenical councils in particular, these pages trace that development over the first 500 years of Jesus' life on earth.

Crown of the Virgin: An Ancient Meditation on Mary's Beauty, Virtue, and Sanctity

Crown of the Virgin: An Ancient Meditation on Mary's Beauty, Virtue, and Sanctity
Nixon, Robert
$24.95
In this book, St. Ildephonsus of Toledo provides a powerful, imaginative, and lyrical set of meditations on the Immaculate Mother of God, reflecting on her splendor, beauty, and sanctity.

This publication is the first translation into English of a Latin work, entitled Libellus de Corona Virginis, or "The Little Book on the Crown of the Virgin." Traditionally, it has been ascribed to St. Ildephonsus of Toledo, a great monk, abbot, and bishop of the 7th century. St. Ildephonsus contributed powerfully to the dissemination of the doctrine of the Perpetual Virginity of Our Lady in Western Europe, and to the popularization of fervent Marian devotion in Spain. In this beautiful, moving and ornate literary portrait, the author imaginatively and lyrically fashions a magnificent crown for the Blessed Virgin Mary, decorated with twelve radiant jewels, six brilliant stars, and six fragrant flower blossoms. Each of these is interpreted as representing a particular aspect of the beauty, beneficence, virtue, or sanctity of the Blessed Virgin.

A perfect companion for guiding daily devotion to the Mother of Mercy and the Queen of Heaven, each chapter reveals a new and scintillating glimpse into the glories of Mary, sure to inspire the heart of the reader with ever more ardent devotion to the Mother of God, the vessel of all graces and the paradigm and perfection of every virtue. As a guide to meditation and a catalyst for prayer, the Crown of the Virgin is an illuminating mirror of the beauty and splendor of the one who is herself the refulgent and immaculate image of her Divine Son.

Escape from Evil's Darkness: The Light of Christ in the Church, Virtue, and Prayer

Spitzer S J, Robert
$21.95

In this second volume of the Called Out of Darkness trilogy, Father Robert Spitzer, S.J., draws together some of the best advice given by Catholic spiritual masters across the ages and brings it into harmony with modern scientific research, offering practical ways to live out the gospel in our busy days. It is a roadmap to a deeper relationship with the Lord and to authentic transformation through the imitation of Christ.

Giving evidence that Jesus established just one Church, with Peter as its head, Spitzer shows that the Catholic Church--with its rich array of sacraments, teachings, prayer traditions, and lived examples of holiness--continues to be fertile ground for profound Christian conversion.

But no true conversion is purely spiritual; it must bear fruit in our daily lives. Father Spitzer guides readers through the workings of moral transformation, with detailed sketches of all the cardinal and theological virtues, especially love. Using insights from Saint Ignatius of Loyola, as well as from modern psychology, Escape from Evil's Darkness concludes with an in-depth study of the sacrament of confession and the staggering power of God's loving mercy.

Great Pilgrimage Sites of Europe

Great Pilgrimage Sites of Europe
Brabbs, Derry
$40.00

An unsurpassable, visual tour of the greatest pilgrimage sites of Europe, from North to South; East to West.

Pilgrimage in Europe is currently thriving on a scale that simply could not have been envisaged just a few decades ago. Not only are greater numbers of people now emulating the medieval pilgrims who made their way on foot across Europe to the shrines of martyred apostles in Rome (SS Peter and Paul), Santiago de Compostela (St James) and Trondheim (St Olav), but international religious tourism is also thriving and millions each year are now travelling by air, rail and road to Europe's major pilgrimage churches and famous sites of Marian Apparition such as Lourdes (France) and Fatima (Portugal).

This book covers those key pilgrimage sites as well as many lesser known ones such as the Marian Sanctuary of La Salette in the French Alps, the cave sanctuary of Covadonga in Northern Spain, the majestic twenty-first-century basilica of Our Lady of Licheń in Poland and the Chapel of Grace in Altötting, Bavaria.

It comprises an atmospheric and colourful portrayal of the pilgrimage churches and cathedrals adorned with sculpture, art and iconography associated not only with the Virgin Mary but also the national saints and Early Christian martyrs revered by both Catholic and Anglican faiths alike. En route the reader will see some of the world's most impressive examples of medieval art and architecture set amidst historic townscapes or spectacular landscapes.

This volume will serve as both an enticement to take to the road, a treasured aide memoire for those who have visited at least some of these iconic places and hopefully, a source of comfort and inspiration for those unable to travel abroad from wherever they live in the world.

How to Destroy Western Civilization and Other Ideas from the Cultural Abyss

Kreeft, Peter
$17.95

Best-selling author Peter Kreeft presents a series of brilliant essays about many of the issues that increasingly divide our Western civilization and culture. He states that "these essays are not new proposals or solutions to today's problems. They are old. They have been tried, and have worked. They have made people happy and good. That is what makes them so radical and so unusual today. The most uncommon thing today is common sense."

Kreeft presents relevant, philosophical data that can guide us, divided into 7 categories: epistemological, theological, metaphysical, anthropological, ethical, political, and historical. He then explores these categories with classic Kreeft insights, presenting 40 pithy points on how we can implement the data from these categories to help save civilization--and more importantly, save souls.

Imitation of Mary: How to Grow in Virtue and Merit God's Grace

Imitation of Mary: How to Grow in Virtue and Merit God's Grace
Tran, Fr Quan
$17.95
Our Lord is constantly pouring out graces upon mankind, yet only a few ‚"‚€‚" those closest to His heart ‚"‚€‚" know how to receive them. Sadly, countless graces are left unclaimed (likely many by you!) and are thus never allowed to further God's will on earth.

How different our lives would be if we accessed God's grace more intentionally!

Thankfully, God in His compassion gave us a perfect model for disposing ourselves to His graces and responding to them: the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In The Imitation of Mary, Fr. Quan Tran shows you how to imitate the twelve essential qualities of Mary in order to unleash a torrent of graces in your life. He explains that, like any gift, grace must be received, opened, and used. As you learn how, you'll begin to acquire the temperaments, dispositions, and qualities that are most pleasing to God ‚"‚€‚" and you'll serve as a channel of God's grace for others.

Liberty's Lions: The Catholic Revolutionaries Who Established America

Liberty's Lions: The Catholic Revolutionaries Who Established America
Leroy, Dan
$19.95
This is the fascinating story of Catholic heroes who, despite discrimination and persecution, saw the promise of America and sought to fight for its independence. Some of these Catholic heroes were Americans, like the three Carrolls of Maryland who included Charles, the longest-lived signer of the Declaration of Independence, and John, America's first bishop. There was also Commodore John Barry, one of the founders of the U.S. Navy. Other heroes were foreign-born: Frenchmen like legendary generals the Marquis de Lafayette and the Comte de Rochambeau, as well as Polish soldiers such as Casimir Pulaski, the founder of the U.S. Calvary, and the daring Thaddeus Kosciuszko. All were inspired by their Catholic faith to join the Revolution and its call for human freedom and dignity. For all who are passionate about the Catholic Faith and the American experiment, Dan LeRoy's Liberty's Lions is a book you won't be able to put down.

Love Never Fails: Living the Catholic Faith in Our Daily Lives

Hying, Bishop Donald
$16.95

The spiritual fruit of much pastoral experience, this book addresses both perennial and current issues facing Catholics in the world today. Ranging from the interior life of prayer and devotion to the practicalities of evangelization and virtue, Bishop Hying offers contemporary and practical insights into the depths of the Catholic faith and how to live it with heroism and humility. He gives a particular focus on the person of Jesus Christ--his identity, mission, and presence in our lives.

As a pastor of souls a good Bishop must apply theology to the lives of the people he serves. These reflections are born from the heart and mind of a pastor who has served in varied contexts of priestly and episcopal ministry, including suburban, inner city, Hispanic, seminary formation, and missionary settings. In the beauty, challenge, grace, and complexity of interacting with a wide variety of people sincerely striving to be holy, Bishop Hying has learned much about the efficacy of God's purpose and action in human lives and events. This book seeks to feed the Christian soul, mind, and heart.

Motherhood Redeemed: How Radical Feminism Betrayed Maternal Love

Motherhood Redeemed: How Radical Feminism Betrayed Maternal Love
Cook, Kimberly
$27.95
T

The journey of popular podcaster Kimberly Cook was that of many directionless young women in recent decades. As her family fell away from the Catholic Church right before her critical high school years, Cook was allured by relativism and formed by pop culture. Following her artistic interests, she quickly fell in with other outcasts and was strongly influenced by the feminist movement. In her words, "I repetitively encountered the issues of reproductive rights--abortion, contraception, and fertility. During that time, the horror of being a woman was awakened in me." She formed an all-girl punk band and eventually became a "hot-headed feminist seeking restitution."
In her endless search for truth, God revealed himself to her and she returned to the Church in her early twenties, still struggling to let go of the harmful feminist ideologies that had been engrained in her--especially the disdain for motherhood. "As I was blessed with children, I realized that my motherhood was the kind of beauty that was written on the face of Mother Teresa: wrinkled, imperfect, and suffering, but what really mattered was the underlying and continuous desire to serve God." Motherhood Redeemed is a book that challenges feminism in the modern world, while examining how we got here. It reminds us simply that the true nature of womanhood is inseparable with woman's maternal soul, and that all women are called to be mothers in one form or another.

Parenting for Eternity: A Guide to Raising Children in Holy Mother Church

Parenting for Eternity: A Guide to Raising Children in Holy Mother Church
Gallagher, Conor
$16.95
A trillion years from now, your child will be either in Heaven or in Hell. And this is only the beginning of eternity.

In light of this eternal perspective, the time is now, Dear Parent, to raise your child to live entirely for Christ and His Church. The time is now to train your child in the Four Last Things, the spiritual life, the virtues of piety and humility, and the school of Calvary while shielding him from the errors of modernism, Protestantism, and much more.

Unlike most parenting books which focus exclusively on the body and this fleeting world, this short work focuses upon your child's eternal soul. In these pages, you will be challenged to see the eternal consequence of every single parental act--acts of commission and acts of omission.

The Lord has said unto you, it is better that you have a millstone hung around your neck and that you be cast into the depths of the sea than for you, Dear Parent, to lead your little one astray (Mk 9:41).

Priest and Beggar: The Heroic Life of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz

Wells, Kevin
$17.95

In 1957, at twenty-seven years old, Father Aloysius Schwartz of Washington, D.C., asked to be sent to one of the saddest places in the world: South Korea in the wake of the Korean War. Just a few months into his priesthood, he stepped off the train in Seoul into a dystopian film. Squatters with blank stares picked through hills of garbage. Paper-fleshed orphans lay on the streets like leftover war shrapnel. The scenes pierced him.

Within just fifteen years, Father Schwartz had changed the course of Korean history, founding and reforming orphanages, hospitals, hospices, clinics, schools, and the Sisters of Mary, a Korean religious order dedicated to the sickest of the sick and the poorest of the poor. All the while, he himself--like the Sisters--lived the same hard poverty as the people he served and loved.

Biographer Kevin Wells tells the story of a different kind of American hero, an ordinary priest who stared down corruption, slander, persecution, and death for the sake of God's poor. "What Father Al managed to do is beyond the pale", said his longtime collaborator Monsignor James Golasinski. "He was the boldest man I ever knew. He feared nothing."

Known for his joy and his humor, even in the teeth of Lou Gehrig's disease, Schwartz was declared a Servant of God by Pope Francis in 2015. By the time of his death in 1992, his work with the Sisters of Mary had spread to the Philippines and Mexico; and since then, the Sisters have founded Boystowns and Girlstowns across Central and South America, as well as in Tanzania. Father Schwartz died calling out to his beloved Mary, the Virgin of the Poor, saying, "All praise, honor, and glory for anything good accomplished in my life goes to her and to her alone."

Includes 16 pages of photos.
