Confession - A Little Book For The Reluctant We are all at least a little bit reluctant about going to Confession, principally because none of us really want to face the fact that he or she is not perfect. But a host of other reasons can also arise to suggest themselves to various people as to why they should not go to Confession. In this famous little booklet, Msgr. de S?gur, an eminently popular French Catholic writer of the 19th century, has assembled over 30 such common abjections and has answered them all -- with kindness, with wit and with wisdom -- so that there remains to the mind of the reader no reason at all why he should neglect going to Confession, and moreover, why he should neglect going to Confession, and moreover, why he should not go to Confession often!

Think Well On It - Considerations on the Great Truths of the Catholic Religion by Bishop Richard Challenor - "Consider first those words of the Prophet Jeremias, 'With desolation is all the land made desolate, because there is none that considereth in the heart.' (Jeremias 12:11). And reflect how true it is that the lack of consideration of the great truths of Christianity is the chief source of all our evils! Alas, the greater part of mankind seldom, or never, think of either their first beginning or of their last end! Neither do they consider who brought them into the world, or for what; nor do they reflect on that eternity into which they are just about to step. Hence, all their pursuits are earthly and temporal, as if they were made only for this life, or were always to be here. Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell make but little impression upon them because they do not give themselves the leisure to delve deeply into their souls by means of serious consideration. They run on, with their eyes shut, to the precipice of a miserable eternity; and only then do they begin to think, when they find themselves lodged that place of woe, 'Where there worm dieth not and the fire is not extinguished.' (Mark 9:43). Ah, my Poor Soul, take care that this be not thy case!"

Thus begins Bishop Challenor's Think Well On It -- Considerations on the Great Truths of the Catholic Religion, in which he proceeds to take the reader, in similar fashion, through all the major considerations we should all keep; perennially in mind as the background against which we should measure and consider everything we do in life....

The Religion Of The Plain Man by Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson - This book is intended for the "man in the street," who, after all, has a certain claim on our consideration, since Jesus Christ came to save his soul. The man in the street, like the author, is unable to discourse profoundly upon the Fathers, or to decide where scholars disagree in matters of simple scholarship. This is a terrific book to introduce other men and women in the street to what the Catholic Faith is all about. The author, perhaps more well known for his "Lord of the World," performs a great service to the Church in this book. Hard bound, 117 pp.

Come Rack! Come Rope! by Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson - Some years before this book was written, H. Belloc wrote that R. Benson would be "the man to write some day a book to give us some sort of idea what happened in England between 1520 and 1560. Come Rack! Come Rope! is the most vivid and gripping novel ever written about how the Reformation happened. In the book, the appalling events come to life.

This Novel tells of the struggles and sufferings of Catholic Recusants under Queen Elizabeth I of England. One such Recusant, Robin Audrey, is shocked to learn his father has decided to leave the Catholic Church for the safety of the Church of England. The narrative follows Robin's struggle with the call of faith, as he is torn between his dream of marriage and a priestly vocation, which would entail further persecution and might even end in martyrdom.

The Celebration of Mass by Rev. J. B. O'Connell - A priest is ordained to offer sacrifice to God. His chief duty, his dearest privilege, is to celebrate Mass. The offering of the Christian Sacrifice is a divine act, but it is done in an entirely human way. Its essential elements were determined by the Chief Priest -- who is at the same time the august Victim -- our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, but the setting in which this sublime act should take place, the rite in which it was to be enshrined for all time, was left to His Church to settle. And the Church, guided by the Holy Spirit, has in the course of centuries created this rite, and has fixed in detail the manner in which the Mass is to be celebrated. This book is a study of the rubrics of the Roman Missal, 1962 edition. It is an endeavor to give a detailed and accurate explanation and interpretation of these rubrics This is a necessary reference for any priest offering the Traditional Latin Mass according to the 1962 Roman Missal. A great ordination gift! Hard bound, 622 pp.

Douay-Rheims Bible - Fr. Haydock Version - This is the magnificent reprint, photographically reproduced from a very large old Bible first printed in 1884. Soft Binding. The commentary covers from one-third to one-half of the space of every page and was selected by the highly respected Father George Leo Haydock. Throughout the 1800's the best known Douay-Rheims Bibles were known as "Haydock's Bibles" because of the powerful footnotes or commentary that was selected by Fr. Haydock to help the faithful to understand Scripture according to the mind of the Church. The Haydock commentary in this edition was taken from a Bible originally printed in 1812 and includes the Saints who were given the title "Father of the Church" because of their outstanding writings explaining Holy Scripture. Fr. Haydock also included notes from other eminent scholars which soundly refute Protestant errors on various passages from the Bible which give important historical explanations to help every reader to better understand God's Holy Word. This edition of the Douay-Rheims Old and New Testaments contains a Bible Dictionary which is Illustrated. Although the commentary is smaller than the text, the average reader should have no difficulty reading these tremendous explanations. There is no commentary more accurate and true than that of the Fathers of the Church. The study of the writings of the Fathers is termed Patrology. Where the Church has spoken, everyone must be of one mind in holding the understanding and sense of any Scripture word or verse. With this edition it is possible for all to hold those passages of Scripture with the mind of the Church. We can know what Our Lord wants us to know with certainty. No more opinions of so-called "experts" or faithless theologians. Bible study-groups can now come alive with the truth and knowledge we have been hungry for. Beautiful Hardcover edition.

The Conversion of Ratisbonne - These are the first-hand accounts of the 1842 conversion of Alphonse Ratisbonne, declared by the Church to be the direct result of the miraculous intervention of Mary. They should be of more than antiquarian interest to modern readers because Ratisbonne was himself, until the moment of his conversion, very much a modern. He was above all worldly. Although his family was nominally Jewish, he had nearly as much contempt for traditional Jewish belief and practice as he had for the Catholic Church. Despite the fact that contemporary Churchmen play it down, it is perhaps the most dramatic conversion story since St. Paul was struck down on the road to Damascus. On January 20, 1842, wealthy banker Alphonse Ratisbonne, a non-observant Jew who had nothing but contempt for the Catholic Faith, was converted by the Blessed Mother herself when she appeared to him in the Church of Sant? Andrea delle Fratte in Rome. The story caused a sensation at the time (hundreds of strangers showed up to witness Ratisbonne's baptism), and naturally drew the attention of the Vatican. After a thorough inquiry, Pope Gregory XVI declared the event a true miracle.

This book brings together in one volume two first-person accounts of the miracle by the two men who knew the story best: Ratisbonne himself, and his friend, Baron Theodore de Bussieres, who was with him when the miracle occurred. A lengthy Foreword from Father W. Lockhart sets the scene by providing useful biographical information about Ratisbonne, his aggressively anti-religious world view before his conversion, and the significance of the supernatural revelation he received. Truly, this is a story for the ages.

St. Catherine of Siena s Dialogue describes the entire spiritual life through a series of conversations between God and the soul, represented by Catherine herself. Readers of The Dialogue of Saint Catherine of Siena, will find her revelations from God as informative- and formative- as those who recognized her sanctity during her life.

The universally applicable yet intimately personal messages she received from God are as much for us as they were for Catherine. We can read God s communications to his beloved daughter with detached awe or we can receive His messages to us through her writings.

Do you long for certainty that Divine Providence exists in the midst of our chaotic world? Does your prayer seem too dry, or too routine? Have you sought guidance for the challenges of your life from unhelpful people or things? Or has pride kept you from humble obedience to the Church? If so, The Dialogue will provide consolation, encouragement, and hope.

Why Catholics Cannot Be Masons - John Salza ? Many good Catholic men have been deceived into becoming Masons. In this powerful book, a Catholic attorney and former 32nd-degree Mason clearly shows why joining Masonry (including the Shriners) means embracing a false religion. Having authored Masonry Unmasked for general readership, here John Salza writes specifically for Catholics, showing why the Church has always condemned Freemasonry and continues to condemn Freemasonry today (despite mistaken claims to the contrary).

John Salza explains Masonic doctrines, history, rituals, oaths,and self-curses, showing that Masonry is totally incompatible with Christianity and the Catholic Faith.
