Join Catholic men where we take responsibility for learning, living, strengthening, and sharing our faith.

Our Lady of Good Counsel's Men's Prayer Breakfast is a collection of everyday “Regular Joes” who want to learn more about the Catholic faith and discuss the common issues that face all men.  Many members have never attended any other “church-related event” outside of Mass, while others are far along in their faith journey.  Whatever the case is with you, you’ll feel welcome!  While not a true prayer group, bible study or men’s club, they have elements of all.

The OLGC Men's Prayer Breakfast mission is "Catholic men inviting men to a comfortable environment where we take responsibility for learning, living, strengthening, and sharing our faith, which will in turn make us better men, leaders, husbands, fathers, and followers of Jesus Christ.”

Newcomers are always welcome! This group meets weekly on most Wednesday mornings from 6:00 until 7:00 AM in the Our Lady of Good Counsel parish Social Hall.

Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ

Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ
Pitre, Brant
$24.00
"This book will prove to be a most effective weapon... against the debunking and skeptical attitudes toward the Gospels that are so prevalent, not only in academe, but also on the street, among young people who, sadly, are leaving the Churches in droves." - Robert Barron, author of Catholicism

For well over a hundred years now, many scholars have questioned the historical truth of the Gospels, claiming that they were originally anonymous. Others have even argued that Jesus of Nazareth did not think he was God and never claimed to be divine.

In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, the bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, goes back to the sources--the biblical and historical evidence for Christ--in order to answer several key questions, including:

- Were the four Gospels really anonymous?
- Are the Gospels folklore? Or are they biographies?
- Were the four Gospels written too late to be reliable?
- What about the so-called "Lost Gospels," such as "Q" and the Gospel of Thomas?
- Did Jesus claim to be God?
- Is Jesus divine in all four Gospels? Or only in John?
- Did Jesus fulfill the Jewish prophecies of the Messiah?
- Why was Jesus crucified?
- What is the evidence for the Resurrection?

As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the traditional Gospels. Above all, Pitre shows how the divine claims of Jesus of Nazareth can only be understood by putting them in their ancient Jewish context.

Creed: Professing the faith through the ages

Creed: Professing the faith through the ages
Hahn, Scott
$22.95

Tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early Church through later ecumenical councils, The Creed tells the story of how the very profession of our belief in Christ fashions us for heavenly life as we live out our earthly days.

It Is Right and Just: Why the Future of Civilization Depends on True Religion

It Is Right and Just: Why the Future of Civilization Depends on True Religion
McGinley, Brandon
$22.95
Is religion a right given to us by the state? Is it an opium for the masses? Is it private opinion with no role in the public sphere? In It Is Right and Just, bestselling author Scott Hahn and Brandon McGinley challenge our idea of religion and its role in society. Hahn and McGinley argue that to answer questions over religious liberty, justice, and peace, we must first reject the insidious lie perpetuated by secular-liberal culture: that religion is a private matter. Contrary to what political commentators and activists say, religion is not only relevant to justice and law, but is necessary for civilization to thrive. Recover the public nature of true religion, It Is Right and Just argues, and watch as a revolution unfolds.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary: Unveiling the Mother of the Messiah

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary: Unveiling the Mother of the Messiah
Pitre, Brant James
$24.00
"Brant Pitre is one of the most compelling theological writers on the scene today." -Bishop Robert Barron

Bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist casts new light on the Virgin Mary, illuminating her role in the Old and New Testaments.

Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the traditions of men? Should she be called the Mother of God, or just the mother of Jesus? Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the brothers of Jesus refer to her other children? By praying to Mary, are Catholics worshipping her? And what does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?

In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.
