30-Day Eucharistic Revival: A Retreat with St. Peter Julian Eymard

30-Day Eucharistic Revival: A Retreat with St. Peter Julian Eymard
Calloway MIC, Donald H
$15.95
Several popes have referred to St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868) as "the Apostle of the Eucharist." Nonetheless, he is not that well known in the universal Church. When it comes to worldwide recognition of his extraordinary life, as well as the many amazing things he did to foster a greater love for the Blessed Sacrament, most Catholics are unfamiliar with him and have never heard his name. That is about to change. 30-Day Eucharistic Revival is intended to help you, your children, your grandchildren, and all future generations rediscover and experience a revival of belief in the Real Presence, especially during the period of National Eucharistic Revival in the United States.

After Christendom

After Christendom
Davis, Michael Warren
$18.95

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.

"Shaun McAfee has put together a great and easy resource for learning more about the Catholic Faith. Whether you have been Catholic your whole life or are simply curious about joining, this book is one to have on your shelf and read." -- Archbishop Gregory Aymond, Archdiocese of New Orleans

One can spend hours searching for answers about the Catholic Faith and how to share it with others. There are a multitude of books that explain the various areas of Church teaching, but never -- before now -- a definitive desktop volume on more than 260 Catholic topics, from A to Z, featuring key definitions, teachings, practices, people, and resources for further reading.

This fascinating, one-stop guidebook delivers the intellectual tradition of the Church while providing practical Catholic applications, spiritual wisdom, and guidance on a broad range of topics, from the basics of the Faith to more current issues, such as transgenderism and yoga.

These pages put timely and timeless information at your fingertips, whether you're seeking information about a specific teaching, wondering about the Church's stance on a social topic, or looking for inspiration to evangelize someone to the Faith.

You will discover:

- Catholic rules to live by from Scripture, Tradition, and the Catechism

"When I saw this book's title, I presumed Shaun McAfee had produced an updated version of a classic Catholic dictionary, such as those by Donald Attwater, Fr. John Hardon, and Fr. Peter M. J. Stravinskas. Not so. McAfee's offering makes no attempt, as the others did, to be comprehensive. It aims to be captivating -- and it is. It's an eclectic, idiosyncratic, and delightful compendium of definitions and explanations, with many topics not found in any other Catholic dictionary." -- Karl Keating, Founder, Catholic Answers

Catholicism Everywhere: From Hail Mary Passes to Cappuccinos: How the Catholic Faith Is Infused in Culture

Catholicism Everywhere: From Hail Mary Passes to Cappuccinos: How the Catholic Faith Is Infused in Culture
Hoffner, Helen
$19.95

Many faithful Catholics greet God and give Him thanks and praise when they arise in the morning and retire at night. How they stay connected with Him and the Faith throughout the day, however, varies widely. Many forget that He is right there to call upon whenever the need or impulse arises. Others see Him all around, in the flowers of the field, the birds of the air, the smile of a child. Uniquely, Catholicism Everywhere treats the reader to the many expressions of God in the hobbies, foods, structures, and inventions developed by the Catholic Church and her members.

Enjoy a cup of coffee and thank Pope Clement VIII for his refusal to ban coffee and his edict proclaiming it to be an acceptable drink for Christians. Turn on the radio and recall that Fr. Jozef Murgas patented a form of wireless telegraphy, made the first wireless voice transmission, and gave away his secrets to allow for the development of radio. Send an e-mail and shop online with a nod to Sr. Mary Kenneth Keller, a member of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who became one of the first two students to earn a doctorate in computer science, helping pave the way for personal computing.

In these crisp, compelling passages, you will also learn about:

  • The saint whose research led to the discovery of insulin
  • The priest who posited the big bang theory
  • The thrilling significance of the St. Michael's Jump
  • The origin of the Hail Mary pass
  • The saint who used beer to help save lives
  • The actor whose promise in prayer led to the building of a famous children's hospital
  • The film Pope Paul VI said would bring more people to Christ than anything before
  • These and other remarkable stories show how the Catholic Church and her members have borne tremendous fruit, in faith, to serve their fellow man. This book features chapters on pets, gardening, health care, cuisine, travel, entertainment, science, and more, including the Catholic founding of Alcoholics Anonymous, the Mayo Clinic, the Blue Army, the Knights of Columbus, and the Legion of Mary.

    From sports to weather forecasting to wedding customs to military service, Catholicism Everywhere connects your work, your play, and your daily habits with the vibrant heritage, culture, and prayers of the Catholic Faith.

    Catholics in Exile: Biblical Wisdom for the Journey Home

    Catholics in Exile: Biblical Wisdom for the Journey Home
    $24.95

    From the day the Gospel dawned in the World, Christians have occupied a remarkable place—citizens of heaven, but heirs to the world; loving the world, yet persecuted by the world. A second-century author remarked that Christians are to the world what the soul is to the body.

    In this book, Catholics in Exile: Biblical Wisdom for the Journey Home, authors Scott Hahn and Brandon McGinley demonstrate that the same power that converted the world in the first century is still converting the world today.

    The message of this book is at once bracingly realistic and hopeful. Christians today are living in exile. But Christians have always lived as strangers in a strange land—and have nevertheless prevailed. It is a timeless message, but calibrated here precisely for our time.

    Charles Carroll of Carrollton: American Revolutionary

    Charles Carroll of Carrollton: American Revolutionary
    Connor, Fr Charles P
    $21.95

    Charles Carroll's life began nearly four decades before the War of Independence and ended while Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States, was in office. As Fr. Charles Connor explains, Carroll was "the last of the signers to die, the wealthiest man in the colonies and the new republic, and clung tenaciously to the faith of his forebearers his entire life."

    In this masterfully written biography, which reads like a riveting novel, Fr. Connor brilliantly sets the stage for Carroll's extraordinary life by examining his ancestry, the origins of the United States, and the story of its founding. As you discover this hero's indomitable faith and energy amid shocking challenges and persecutions, you will find:


    - The fascinating Irish roots of Carroll's family and the dynamics that led to their choices

    - The pursuit of religious liberty in the Maryland colony in the face of marginalization

    - How "Charley" played a crucial role in the events leading up to the American Revolution

    - Ways Carroll advocated for moral principles and natural rights as "First Citizen"

    - How Carroll's diplomatic skills and legal acumen aided in his prominence

    - Ways Carroll lived out his faith and his connection to the first bishop of the United States

    While you learn about the hardships and divisions in the early years of American history, you will be inspired by Carroll's finesse in defending his beliefs while also fostering goodwill and unity. Carroll helped shape our country's foundation, from his participation in the Continental Congress to the drafting of the Constitution to his tenure as senator and decades of service in Maryland. Highlighted in his illustrious legacy are his tireless efforts in promoting human dignity through opposing slavery and standing up for the marginalized through his philanthropy. Above all, Carroll was a spiritual giant whose exemplary faith shines as a beacon for our country today.

    Chastity: Reconciliation of the Senses

    Chastity: Reconciliation of the Senses
    Varden, Erik
    $22.00

    The word 'chastity', at first sight, may seem intimidating, something to be dismissed out of hand. It is, however, something very different to celibacy.

    At a time when religion is in decline in the Western world and when it often seems that the senses have run riot, Erik Varden shows that chastity, the single minded direction of the senses, is a loveable quality and one that affects and beautifies humankind.

    The terms sexuality and wholeness indicate that to be sexual is to exist in a state of incompleteness longing to be restored. Wholeness points to a healing embrace that we desire so greatly. In Biblical language, chastity is a function of simplicity of sight. We are no longer torn apart by our passions and our desires, indeed they may reach their fulfilment. Body and spirit, male and female, order and disorder, passion and death can move from creative tension to a new kind of wholeness.

    Varden's text is enriched by a wide range of references to scripture, literature, music, painting and sculpture.

    Chronicles of Faith: A Catholic Perspective on C. S. Lewis

    Chronicles of Faith: A Catholic Perspective on C. S. Lewis
    Monahan, Fintan
    $14.95

    A popular Anglican apologist, scholar, poet, novelist, and dramatist, C. S. Lewis never became Catholic. And yet a great number of Catholics have a profound love for Lewis and have been formed by his great works.

    Chronicles of Faith: A Catholic Perspective on C. S. Lewis is a wonderful introduction, or re-introduction, to this outstanding literary and spiritual figure. Bishop Fintan Monahan guides the reader through the life and work of Lewis, from his childhood in Northern Ireland and his experiences of loss and war at a young age to his years as an academic in Oxford and his career as a world-renowned author.

    In a unique and accessible way, Chronicles of Faith explores the twists and turns of Lewis's spiritual journey, through which he was transformed from a young man of lost faith to a man of deep faith. This book also explains why Lewis's writings, both fiction and spiritual, continue to resonate and inspire Catholics, and other Christians, today.

    Citizens Yet Strangers: Living Authentically Catholic in a Divided America

    Citizens Yet Strangers: Living Authentically Catholic in a Divided America
    Craycraft, Kenneth
    $26.95

    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 clichés 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.

    Pacwa, Mitch
    $32.95
    "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ."
    --Saint Jerome

    Understanding the book of Isaiah is fundamental to attaining a deeper knowledge of our Faith. In Father Mitch Pacwa's new book, Commentary on the Book of Isaiah, the prolific scripture scholar unpacks the mysteries contained in this prophetic book to guide Catholics on the path of sanctity.

God has come to save His people, and this message is what makes Isaiah a necessary book for every Catholic to read, understand, and meditate upon. While reading the book of Isaiah is not always clear and straightforward, this commentary organizes the events and prophecies in chronological history to help the reader grasp all the grace and messages this beautiful book has to offer. This book can help us in our understanding of our faith as it traces the themes of the oneness of God, His perfections reflected in creation, God's punishment, the remnant, and the sending of the Messiah.

    Courage Under Fire: Father Willie Doyle, S.J., Priest and Hero of the First World War

    Courage Under Fire: Father Willie Doyle, S.J., Priest and Hero of the First World War
    $12.95

    This historical novel for young people is about the heroic life of Father Willie Doyle, S.J., an Irish Jesuit priest who sacrificed his life serving wounded soldiers in World War I.

    Father Doyle enjoyed a happy, privileged Victorian childhood in Ireland. Growing up in a loving, faithful Catholic family, he heard the call to serve God as a priest from a very young age. Shortly after his ordination, the First World War broke out, and Father Willie volunteered to serve as a chaplain to the thousands of Irish soldiers fighting in France.

    This joyful, holy, brave, and compassionate priest left the country he loved and ministered to soldiers in the hell of the trenches, dodging bullets and bombs to ensure that dying soldiers could receive the sacraments. By the time he was killed trying to help a wounded soldier, Father Willie had become greatly loved and esteemed by both Catholics and Protestants fighting in the war.

    The cause for the canonization of Father Willie Doyle has recently been opened in Rome.

    Cross and Medal of Saint Benedict: A Mystical Sign of Divine Power

    Cross and Medal of Saint Benedict: A Mystical Sign of Divine Power
    Various Authors
    $19.95
    The spiritual wisdom of Saint Benedict has endured for centuries and quite literally shaped Western culture from its inception. Tenets of the order, like its motto and Saint Benedict's Rule, are just as influential for lay people as they are for the Benedictine monks and nuns. The cross and medal of St. Benedict is also among the gifts bestowed by the Benedictine Order. For centuries, it has been a conduit for God's power against malicious spirits.

    The history of this cross and medal--how it first came about, how it was used, and miracles attributed to its use--was not easily apparent, nor readily accessible. However, this book successfully delineates the history, theology, and potency of the cross and medal of St. Benedict. Drawing from a number of ancient and reliable sources, Fr. Robert Nixon has compiled, translated, and edited a most powerful book on the cross and medal of St. Benedict. With this book, you'll learn from various saints and holy men as the history of St. Benedict's cross and medal unfolds. In doing so, you will learn about the life and legend of St. Benedict, the Father of W

    Cultural Sanctification: Engaging the World Like the Early Church

    Cultural Sanctification: Engaging the World Like the Early Church
    Presley, Stephen O
    $24.99
    How to keep faith in a culture hostile to Christianity

    In an increasingly secular world, Christians are often pulled in two directions. Some urge us to retreat and build insular communities. Others call upon us to wage a culture war, harnessing the government to shore up Christian cultural power.

    But there is another way--and it's as old as the church itself. Stephen O. Presley takes us back to the first few centuries AD to show us how the first Christians approached cultural engagement. Amid a pagan culture that regarded their faith with suspicion, early Christians founded a religious movement that transformed the ancient world. Looking to great theologians like Augustine, Origen, and Tertullian, Presley shows how the early church approached politics, family, public life, and more. From these examples, he draws lessons for practicing authentic, pious discernment in how we engage with the wider culture.

    The Christians who came before us endured persecution to share a vision of human flourishing that changed the world. Following in their footsteps, we can sanctify our society through social witness. Readers anxious about shifting cultural tides will be left with hope in the already-present kingdom of God and the promised resurrection.

    Death in Black and White

    Death in Black and White
    Brisson, Michael
    $18.95

    Father Christopher Hart, a young New York priest and classic film buff, is unwittingly drafted by the mob to hear the confession of a man slated for execution. This was not one of the duties he expected when he became a first-time pastor. Learning how to balance the books and safely navigate parish politics, yes; but playing a key role in the White Death--a mafia ritual in which a person condemned to death is allowed to confess his sins before he's killed--was not included on the Parish Leadership 101 curriculum. Should he just do his job and collaborate with the mob for the sake of souls or find a way to stop the violence?

    Unrelentingly comparing his life to his favorite classic movies, Father Hart wishes he could just play the role of Father O'Malley from Going My Way, but he ends up playing a character more akin to Philip Marlowe from The Big Sleep. This riveting page-turner will entertain, but it will also drive the reader to grapple with important themes such as identity, purpose, justice, sin, and, ultimately, redemption.

    Detransition Diaries

    Detransition Diaries
    Fell, Kallie
    $18.95

    We live in unprecedented times, when what was known for thousands of years, that we are created male and female, is now up for debate. It is now controversial to see that sex is binary, that a man can never become a woman, nor a woman a man, and that men should not enter women's sports, women's bathrooms, and women's prisons, merely for saying that they are a woman. We are witnessing a rapid rise in gender confusion among young people, especially among young women and girls.

    The Detransition Diaries is both personal and historical. It is personal in that it recounts the stories of five women and two men who felt they were born in the wrong body and believed the lie they were told by peers, teachers, and medical professionals that they could be their "true" selves by medically and surgically altering their bodies to match the opposite sex. Their stories describe the short- and long-term harm that so-called gender-affirmative medicine did to their mental and physical health. The book is historical because it outlines the history of the "gender-affirmation" movement, including the various individuals and organizations who have peddled the idea that the sexual binary is arbitrary.

    The book closes with an analysis on how this dark chapter in medical abuse might end and what is needed for medicine to regain its obligation to do no harm.

    Devil and Communist China: From Mao Down to XI

    Devil and Communist China: From Mao Down to XI
    Mosher, Steven W
    $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.

    Ethics for Beginners: Big Ideas from 32 Great Minds

    Ethics for Beginners: Big Ideas from 32 Great Minds
    Kreeft, Peter
    $24.95

    Socrates once said that a good person does not worry much about the little things, like whether he lives or dies, but only about the one big thing: whether he is a good person or a bad one.

    In Ethics for Beginners, celebrated philosopher Peter Kreeft reclaims the importance of ethical study in answering life's big questions: What is the meaning of life? How should I live? How should I treat other people? Unlike many modern texts on the subject, this one asserts that ethics is real, that good and evil are knowable, and that we can learn to act well and so become better and happier people.

    Surveying the "big ideas" of the thirty-two most important ethical philosophers, Ethics for Beginners is an apprenticeship to the greatest minds in history. With expert analysis and reflection from Kreeft, it offers a challenging and unforgettable treatment that is suitable for classroom and individual use alike.

    Fathers of the Faith: Saint Athanasius

    Fathers of the Faith: Saint Athanasius
    Aquilina, Mike
    $14.95

    In this volume from the Fathers of the Faith series, you'll be introduced to Saint Athanasius of Alexandria. Who was he? What did he teach? Where and when did he live? Why is he an important figure in the history of the Church?

    In this accessible, bite-sized introduction, renowned author, speaker, and host Mike Aquilina gives an overview of Athanasius' life as a fourth-century Egyptian. Remembered as Athanasius the Great, he is one of the Church's most influential teachers and her greatest defender of the Incarnation.

    In addition to being a Doctor of the Church, Athanasius earned the title "Father of Orthodoxy" by standing firm against the Arian heresy - no matter the cost - as Bishop of Alexandria. Exiled five times, Athanasius was a lone voice crying out in the wilderness that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of the Father, is indeed consubstantial, one in being with the Father; and it is this divine Son who became incarnate for our salvation.

    Finding Peace in the Storm: Reflections on St. Alphonsus Liguori's Uniformity with God's Will
    Burke, Dan
    $17.95

    Sometimes discernment seems complicated, and we struggle to "be still" to listen to God's voice. Following the death of his spiritual director, St. Alphonsus Liguori penned timeless advice in a letter to one of his spiritual daughters, and it became the famous work titled Uniformity with God's Will. Now Dan Burke breaks open St. Alphonsus's eighteenth-century classic for you. He intersperses relevant explanations and insights within the text of this great saint and includes reflection questions for each chapter.

    St. Alphonsus explains, "We should most confidently abandon ourselves to all the dispositions of divine providence, since they are for our own good." In page after page, Burke shows you how the "wind and waves" can help you ascend to union with God. You will discover:

  • The "paralyzing cocktail" we drink when we reject God's will
  • When good works are displeasing to God (Can you guess?)
  • Three prayers that will assist you in directing all things to God's will
  • Two ways we can know God's love and hear His voice
  • Two life-altering spiritual disciplines according to St. Teresa of Ávila
  • How humiliation, adversity, and trials can bring freedom, healing, and salvation (You will be shocked!)
  • Liguori intersperses fascinating real-life examples from the saints to assist you in remaining steadfast amid afflictions. He explains three temptations that confront us and how to resist them, along with four practices of uniformity to God's will and a surefire way to unite your sufferings to Christ's sufferings.

    You will acquire tips on what to do during periods of aridity or desolation. Above all, you will discover how to enjoy peace of heart in all circumstances and foster loving conversation with God. By learning how to entrust yourself fully to God's holy will, you will experience His divine embrace and the fulfillment of your deepest desires.

    A "What Next?" section helps you take practical steps in doing God's will. Burke also provides a summary of the Paradigm of Ascent, which provides often hidden but foundational insights and practices necessary to live out Liguori's wisdom and to know the peace promised by God. In addition, he provides a simple action plan to implement these fruitful practices in your life.

    Flee from Heresy: A Catholic Guide to Ancient and Modern Errors

    Flee from Heresy: A Catholic Guide to Ancient and Modern Errors
    Schneider, Bishop Athanasius
    $24.95

    Society is lost and confused about God, morality, and eternity. Catholics face persecution, from outside and inside the Church, for living their Faith. Priests speak out against errors and corruption in their own hierarchy, only to be marginalized and punished by their superiors. The few bishops who remain faithful to the changeless teaching of Christ are rebuked and "canceled," even by the pope himself, and sent into exile. Catholics longing for reverent worship are forced out of their parishes and into makeshift venues.

    This is a description of the Catholic Church in the fourth century.

    With similar patterns recurring in our time, one Catholic bishop is calling out to souls:

    "Know the errors and embrace the truth!"

    In Flee from Heresy, Bishop Athanasius Schneider -- raised among persecuted Catholics in the Soviet Union -- offers a systematic treatment of more than 130 doctrinal errors, from ancient times down to our own day, along with English translations of the Church's major anti-heresy documents of the past two centuries.

    In this fascinating exposé, you will discover the ideological roots of our own unsteady times and be better equipped to "test all things; hold fast what is good" (1 Thess. 5:21). You will learn:

  • What heresy is -- and what it is not
  • A sweeping history of heresies across the centuries
  • How heresy destroys charity and the spiritual life
  • Why God allows heresy to afflict His holy Church
  • Names and categories of more than 130 doctrinal errors
  • The nefarious heresy of the anti-Christ and the anti-Mary
  • How heresy relates to schism, apostasy, and excommunication
  • Why the Virgin Mary is invoked as "Destroyer of Heresies"
  • Combining theological precision, superb historical insight, and concrete principles for action today, Flee from Heresy is a timely and trustworthy guide to errors old and new.

    Fr. Gabriele Amorth: The Official Biography of the Pope's Exorcist

    Fr. Gabriele Amorth: The Official Biography of the Pope's Exorcist
    Agasso, Domenico
    $29.95

    “Among men, a special role is played by exorcists. They are like the tips of diamonds in this army that counters evil with good. They are priests chosen to drive out the extraordinary presence of Satan and his army.” —Fr. Gabrielle Amorth When Fr. Gabriele Amorth passed away on September 16, 2016 at the age of ninety, he had given everything to Christ and His Church. He performed as many as twelve exorcisms in a day. He faithfully served sixty-nine years in the Pauline religious order, sixty-two as a priest, and thirty years as the pope’s exorcist. In this official biography, Father Amorth’s extraordinary life is revealed for the first time in English. In these pages, you will learn about a humble priest who initially refused the appointment of exorcist. You will discover how this spiritual son of Saint Padre Pio trained to be an exorcist and the details of his first exorcism. How he single handedly spearheaded the consecration of Italy to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. He later founded what became the International Association of Exorcists (IAE), the only organization of its kind recognized by the Church. Father Amorth once said about exorcisms, “The battle can last for hours. And it almost never ends with deliverance. It takes years to free a possessed person. Many years. Satan is difficult to defeat.” Although the world knows him only as an exorcist, he was so much more. His profound prayer life, his simplicity, his love for poverty, his sense of humor, his fearlessness, his friendship with many saints, and his esteemed love for Our Lady set him apart. Because of Our Lady’s protection, he once declared, “I always say that it is the devil who is afraid of me.”  Everyone is called to do battle with devil, but only few people are given the power over the demons. And “despite the fatigue, disappointments, and losses, he would never retreat from the enemy.” Here, you will find the remarkable story of the most renowned exorcist of the last century, a warrior for Christ. “Those who knew him, already consider him a saint.”

    Get Married: Why Americans Must Defy the Elites, Forge Strong Families, and Save Civilization

    Get Married: Why Americans Must Defy the Elites, Forge Strong Families, and Save Civilization
    $32.00

    A Next Big Idea Club Must-Read

    What's the recipe for happiness? If you listen to liberal elites or red pill influencers, you'd say it's making money, living for yourself, and staying single without kids--and you'd be wrong. Nothing predicts happiness better than a good marriage.

    According to new research by the University of Virginia sociologist Brad Wilcox, our kids and communities--not to mention our civilization as a whole--are much more likely to flourish when the state of our unions is strong. Despite this, record numbers of Americans are not succeeding at getting or staying married.

    In this hard-hitting book, Wilcox reveals the anti-family messages and policies coming out of Holly-wood, Washington, the media, academia, and corporate America that have weakened marriage. Along the way, he knocks down a number of myths they've propa-gated. He reveals:

    - Both men and women who get and stay married accumulate much greater wealth than people who don't marry.

    - Married men and women with families report more meaningful lives, compared with their single and childless peers.

    - Couples who take a "we-before-me" approach to married life--by, for instance, sharing joint checking accounts--are happier and less divorce-prone than couples who do not.

    - Couples who forge "family-first" marriages--characterized by frequent date nights, family fun time, and chores done with the kids--enjoy the happiest marriages.

    Wilcox spotlights four groups--Asian American, Conservative, Faithful, and Strivers--who have built strong, stable marriages by defying the me-first mes-sages of our elites in favor of a family-first way of life.

    This is a book for anyone who wants to under-stand why, even as fewer men and women tie the knot, America's most fundamental institution matters for our civilization more than ever. And for men and women looking to establish strong, stable, and happy unions for themselves and their children, Get Married reveals the road forward.

    Go and Fear Nothing: The Story of Our Lady of Champion

    Go and Fear Nothing: The Story of Our Lady of Champion
    O'Hearn, Patrick
    $17.95

    Did you know there is a Church-approved Marian apparition site in the United States? Marian apparitions are appearances of the Blessed Virgin Mary, coming down from heaven to earth, to one or more people. In 1859, Mary appeared three times to a young woman named Adele Brise in the Wisconsin frontier.

    During the third apparition, Adele froze in her tracks at the sight of a beautiful woman, clothed in dazzling white, with a yellow sash around her waist. She had a crown of stars around her head, and her long, wavy, golden hair fell loosely over her shoulders. The lady in white introduced herself to Adele as the Queen of Heaven. Today, people from all over the United States and the world visit the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion in Champion, Wisconsin, located on the spot where Mary appeared to Adele.

    Go and Fear Nothing brings to life for young people this incredible real-life story and Our Lady's message of praying for the conversion of sinners, learning our catechism, receiving the sacraments with devotion, and relying on her unfailing help. When we doubt ourselves or feel like we need to make excuses for our weaknesses, we can remember Our Lady's words to Adele: "Go and fear nothing. I will help you."
