NEW TITLES

In God We Trust: Morally Responsible Investing

$29.95
This book is both timely and timeless.

In God We Trust delves deeply into current economic and market developments and reflects on how U.S. prosperity has returned in 2018, as capitalism has again been unleashed. The author says, "What a relief after eight years of economic stagna-tion and government over-regulation." Oddly, as the U.S. economy has benefited from pro-growth policies, like tax rate cuts and deregulation, there exists a rising tide of sympathy for socialism among leftist politicians and young people.

This timeless divide between capitalism and socialism is explored within the context of the economic and moral ramifications for society in general and long-term investors, specifically.

Readers with historical perspective will appreciate the logic of what should be obvious, i.e. that socialism has never worked anywhere on earth. Or aptly put by President Ronald Reagan, "Socialism can only work in two places, heaven where they don't need it, and hell where they already have it."

This book is about participating in the capital markets while avoiding morally objectionable businesses. As a lover of the free enterprise system and a portfolio manager, George Schwartz chronicles how Morally Responsible Investing is helping long-term investors put their money to work in accordance with their moral beliefs. His firm manages Ave Maria Mutual Funds, which were founded in 2001. These pro-life and pro-family mutual funds have attracted over 100,000 shareholders, who have invested more than $2.2 billion in five separate award-winning mutual funds.

33 Days to Greater Glory: A Total Consecration to the Father Through Jesus Based on the Gospel of John

$15.95

In this third installment of his 33-day consecration series, Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, has saved the best for last! 33 Days to Greater Glory stands as the culmination of a trilogy of consecrations that begins with the massively popular manual of Marian entrustment, 33 Days to Morning Glory. Second in the series is 33 Days to Merciful Love, because Mary always leads us to Jesus, the Divine Mercy. Finally, because Jesus wants to bring us home to the Father, we arrive at 33 Days to Greater Glory. And this really is a case of saving the best for last, because a consecration to our Heavenly Father truly is the greater consecration, the one in which all others find their origin and end. Finally, as a bonus, Fr. Gaitley has also included his popular and easy-to-use novena of consecration to St. Joseph, Nine Days to Joseph, which helps us enter more fully into the Fatherhood of God.

Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, author of 33 Days to Morning Glory, one of the most popular Catholic books of the last decade, brings us his first new book in three years. 33 Days to Greater Glory completes a trilogy of consecrations: first to Mary, then to Jesus, the Divine Mercy, and now to God, our Father. This final consecration to our Heavenly Father truly is the "greater" consecration, the one in which all others find their origin and end.

Anti-Mary Exposed: Rescuing the Culture from Toxic Femininity

$27.95
The Demonic Influence on Women Today
In the late '60s, a small group of elite American women convinced an overwhelming majority of the country that destroying the most fundamental of relationships--that of mother and child--was necessary for women to have productive and happy lives.

From the spoiling of this relationship followed the decay of the entire family, and almost overnight, our once pro-life culture became pro-lifestyle, embracing everything that felt good. Sixty million abortions later, women aren't showing signs of health, happiness, and fulfillment. Increased numbers of divorce, depression, anxiety, sexually transmitted disease, and drug abuse all point to the reality that women aren't happier, just more medicated.

Huge cultural shifts led to a rethinking of womanhood, but could there be more behind it than just culture, politics, and rhetoric?

Building off the scriptural foundations of the anti-Christ, Carrie Gress makes an in-depth investigation into the idea of an anti-Mary--as a spirit, not an individual--that has plagued the West since the '60s. Misleading generations of women, this anti-Marian spirit has led to the toxic femininity that has destroyed the lives of countless men, women, and children.

Also in The Anti-Mary Exposed:
  • How radical feminism is connected to the errors of Russia, spoken of by Our Lady of Fatima.The involvement and influence of the goddess movement and the occult.
  • The influence of "female" demons, such as Lilith and Jezebel.
  • The repulsive underbelly of radical feminism's chief architects.
  • A look at the matriarchy, a cabal of elite women committed to abortion, who control the thinking of most women through media, politics, Hollywood, fashion, and universities.

  • The antidote to the anti-Mary is, of course, Mary, the Mother of God, known widely as the most powerful woman in the world and the source of the belief that women ought to be treated with dignity. She is a beacon of all the virtues and qualities--purity, humility, kindness, beauty--that oppose this sinister force that has cast its spell upon so many women. Mary's influence is unparalleled by any woman in history. She is the perfect model of Christian femininity, who desires to be a spiritual mother to us all, leading us to her Son, and to the fulfillment of our heart's deepest desires.

    Bread That Is Broken

    $12.95
    The Holy Eucharist is the Church's center, her most precious treasure, the source and summit of her prayer and worship of God. The Church is built upon and around the Eucharist. In this book, the renowned spiritual writer and Carmelite priest shows how the Eucharist is not only seen as the great Sacrament that brings about our oneness with Christ, and with the faithful, but also how the Eucharist is the foundational norm for all our actions. To become one with the Lord who is sacrificed has necessary consequences. The mystic of the Eucharist leads to a Eucharistic ethic for life. Fr. Stinissen says that the Eucharist is such a rich and many-faceted mystery that a systematic and exhaustive treatment of it does not suffice. Therefore he has chosen to touch on the subject with the help of some key concepts, consider it from different perspectives, and thus continually find new aspects and dimensions of the Eucharist. All the Sacraments are holy, but the Eucharist is called "Sanctissimum Sacramentum". According to St. Thomas Aquinas, all the Sacraments are directed toward this "Most Holy Sacrament" as toward their final purpose. The Church keeps guard over this sacred treasure and does not readily distribute it if she is not sure that others are worthy of it, and receive it with as great a reverence as she does. In this profound work, Fr. Stinissen says that since Christ comes to us in the Eucharist and unites himself with us under the form of broken bread, we must become like him, a sacrificing, serving people. Anyone who wonders how he should act will find the answer in the Eucharist. He is called to become like Jesus, bread that is broken, "for the life of the world" (Jn 6:51).

    Breakthrough: A Journey from Desperation to Hope

    $15.95
    Are you disconnected from God? Do you feel that your life has no hope? As a teenager, Fr. Rob Galea's reaction to those painful feelings was addiction, violence, and destructive friendships. When the recording artist and former Australian X Factor contestant finally let God in, his life completely changed. In Breakthrough, Galea shares his journey from scared teenager to passionate priest and invites you to learn more about the Catholic faith so you, too, can find hope in Christ.

    Rob Galea was a lonely, miserable teenager. He wanted to feel like he belonged, so he joined a gang. He went clubbing. He drank. He stole things. He lied. His reckless lifestyle ultimately led him to hide in fear for his life from other gang members. He was so desperate in those days spent in his dark bedroom that he contemplated ending his life.

    Then a phone call from his grandmother about a youth group at a nearby church--an invitation not originally intended for him--helped Galea turn his life around. When he finally let God break through his loneliness and fear, he began to experience freedom and God's unconditional love.

    In Breakthrough, Galea takes you on his journey to seminary, the move from his home country of Malta to Australia, and the development of his ministry as a priest, speaker, singer/songwriter, and recording artist. Along the way, he'll help you to see the life-changing journey of discipleship and how to find hope in your Catholic faith.

    Christ in Eclipse: A Clinical Study of the Good Christian

    product image
    $15.95
    People whose day-to-day lives have not been changed through knowing Christ fill the pews of today's churches, says the urbane, astutely provocative F.J. Sheed - a modern-day Jeremiah in a two-piece suit. Likewise, Sheed asserts, church leaders exhibit similar lacks, and neither clergy nor laymen are blind to, nor silent about, the others' weaknesses. Sheed charges that both share a common failure to consider Christ in their scathing criticisms as they propose both radical change and a return to old ways to correct the problems they see. Says Sheed, "I have fallen into a way of reminding the objectors that . . . an administration is necessary if the Church is to function, but Christ is the whole point of that functioning." Writing from the perspective of a half-century preaching career which began on a corner soapbox in London, this man who expressed concern that "people, more than ever, don't find God interesting" shows in this book, that, more than ever, he does. His main question in this book for all of us to answer is "How real is Christ to us, how well do we know him, what strong desire have we to know him better?" Sheed is perhaps more qualified than almost anyone to write about the Christ who has been forgotten in today's world. Few laymen have had such wide and varied contacts within the Christian world and seen the private face of so many of its public men. Sheed had conversed with, and published most of, the leading Christian writers of the twentieth century.

    Church and the Roman Empire (301-490): Constantine, Councils, and the Fall of Rome

    product image
    $17.95

    Suspense, politics, sin, death, sex, and redemption: Not the plot of the latest crime novel, but elements of the true history of the Catholic Church.

    Larger-than-life saints such as Athanasius of Alexandria, Jerome, Augustine, and political figures such as Emperor Constantine played an important part in the history of the Christianity. In The Church and the Roman Empire (301-490): Constantine, Councils, and the Fall of Rome, popular Catholic author Mike Aquilina gives readers a vivid and engaging account of how Christianity developed and expanded as the Roman Empire declined.

    In The Church and the Roman Empire (301-490), Mike Aquilina explores the dramatic backstory of the Council of Nicaea and why Christian unity and belief are still expressed by the Nicene Creed. He also sets the record straight about commonly held misconceptions about the Catholic Church. Readers may be surprised to learn:

  • The Edict of Milan didn't just legalize Christianity; it also established religious tolerance for all faiths for the first time in history.
  • The growth of Christianity inspired a more merciful society: Crucifixion was abolished; the practice of throwing prisoners to wild beasts for entertainment was outlawed; and slave owners were punished for killing their slaves.
  • Controversy between Arians and Catholics may have resulted in building more hospitals and other networks of charitable assistance to the poor.
  • When Rome fell, not many people at the time noticed.
  • Aquilina brings Church history to life in The Church and the Roman Empire, enabling Catholics to more deeply consider the true origins of the creed that unites us, the Bible we read, and the liturgy we celebrate.

    Contemplative Enigmas: Insights and Aid on the Path to Deeper Prayer

    $17.95
    Despite signs in recent decades of a crisis in the Church, a countercurrent of intense interest in prayer and serious spiritual life is clearly at work today. A deeper esteem for a contemplative dimension of spiritual life has accompanied this turning to prayer, and many people have a need for some form of direction and guidance. Written by a recognized expert on contemplative spirituality, this book concentrates on the mystery of interior trial and difficulty in contemplative prayer. The hardships experienced in the interior life by souls who give themselves to God wholeheartedly are often little acknowledged; yet they are seen with some regularity in contemplative lives. This work offers more than a summary of the symptoms of trial in a contemplative spirituality. The poignant observations have a source in the author's long years of experience in retreat work with souls of contemplative depth. Personal experience, not simply knowledge of the spiritual tradition, informs these insightful reflections. The concise, carefully crafted comments of this book delve into spiritual difficulties and conundrums in a uniquely personal and penetrating manner. Throughout the book, the writing invites the reader to ponder the subject of spiritual darkness and perplexity and simple struggle in the spiritual life always in the light of the loving hand of God drawing the soul into a greater surrender to himself. The work offers a unique aid and stimulus in the quest for a deeper spirituality.
