History - Roman Catholic Books

100 Years Of Modernism

Fr. Dominique Bourmaud
STK# 5242

One Hundred Years of Modernism: A Genealogy of the Principles of the Second Vatican Council
"Change" was the buzzword of the 1960's and '70's. When it hit the Catholic Church, its faithful were told to expect a glorious springtime. Instead, doubt and instability have prevailed.
Where has the destruction come from? All indicators point to the Second Vatican Council (1962 - 65) as its epicenter. To prove it, the author reconstructed a family tree - a genealogy - of Vatican II to uncover the chain of causes that resulted in this Council and its novelties.
The Vatican II "effect" is related to a heresy going back one hundred years: Modernism. The modernists, actively fought by Pope Pius X (1903-14) and condemned by the encyclical Pascendi (1907), had been working ever since to align the Church with new ideas in philosophy. But their "new ideas" had an origin, too. Following back links in the chain, the author reached the first link: Martin Luther.
One Hundred Years of Modernism is an everyman's survey of the history of philosophical ideas from Aristotle's sane realism to the existentialists' insanity. In chronological order, from its roots in Luther's principle of private judgment through its subsequent developments, it shows that modernism, prematurely declared dead after St. Pius X's reign, revived after World War II and reached the highest levels of the Catholic Church's hierarchy.
From causes to effects and from masters to disciples. The book is divided into five historical periods:
•Christian Truth
•Protestant critical modernism in Germany
•Modernism in France
•Neo-modernism in Europe
•Triumphant modernism in Rome itself

1917: Red Banners
Dr. Warren H. Carroll
STK# 6403

The terrible events of the 20th century become intelligible in light of the titanic conflict between the Woman and the Serpent. In this history, the events of the apparition of our Lady at Fatima are paralleled with the machinations of Lenin and the Communists in Russia. Highly memorable, the story is narrated in a month by month account of the crucial year of 1917.

A Saint under Moslem Rule
Dom Justo Perez de Urbel, O.S.B.
STK# 8274

A book of unusual power, scholarship, and interest. Though restricted to 9th century Cordova under Moorish domination, it is a typical picture of the tremendous life-and-death struggle, the religious and cultural conflict, between two antagonistic and incompatible civilizations: Catholic and Moslem.
Great leaders stand forth like St. Eulogius, the central figure of this history and his dear friend St. Alvaro. Chance of victory there was none for Cordova at this bleak hour. One could only show that men and women would never be wanting to carry on the conflict until the victory should be won.
We see the ancient Mozarabic rite up close as we listen to chants and prayers, attend a baptism, wedding, ordination and lastly the solemn services performed over the martyred body of the leader of the Mozarabic Christians.

Angels in Iron
Nicholas Prata
STK# 8432

"Among his brethren La Valette inspired awe, almost fear, and his mere presence extracted superhuman effort from otherwise ordinary men.
Every ounce of his being proclaimed him a warrior, and his determined comportment promised that only death would sheath his sword."
The year is A.D. 1523 and the island of Rhodes has just fallen to the Turks. Those sailing away in defeat from this captured bastion are members
of an anachronistic crusading order called the Knights of St. John -- otherwise known as the Hospitallers. Among the dejected company is a
stalwart young knight named Jean Parisot De La Valette. Were it up to him, the order would have defended the island to the bitter end.
Forty-two years later, history has repeated itself. The Hospitallers are again besieged by the teeming armies of the relentless Turk.
Their tiny island-fortress of Malta is all that stands between the armies of Suleiman and the very heart of Christendom. But this time the
scenario is different -- La Valette wears the Grand Master's cape. Behind him stand the knights of his faithful order: men of incredible valor
ready to "strike a blow for Christ" and sacrifice their lives to halt the invading Turks at the gates of Europe. What follows is an desperate
struggle between East and West, Cross and Koran, faith and despair.
Angels in Iron is based on the actual events surrounding the Siege of Malta in 1565. Nicholas C. Prata relates the tale in riveting and graphic
prose which brings the extreme heroism of the knights and the unimaginable horror of combat sharply into focus.

Cranmers Godly Order
Michael Davies
STK# 3069

Cranmer's Godly Order
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. I
by Michael Davies
Michael Davies shows that Henry VIII and Thomas Cranmer understood that if you change the way people pray, then you will change what they believe. Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer (1549) began a process that changed the Catholic Church in England to the Anglican sect. Davies compares these changes to the modern liturgical "reforms" and the similarities are shocking.
Cranmer's Godly Order is a classic...revised and expanded by Mr. Davies during his final years. Drawing upon the best of Catholic and Protestant scholarship and on primary sources, Davies traces the steps by which the ancient Catholic Mass became the Lord's Supper in the Church of England. And these steps were changes - as Popes and Reformers alike were at pains to stress.
Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury under Henry VIII and Edward VI and architect of the new liturgy, was a master of the theology of the Mass, and hated it. The parallels between the Anglican liturgy and the New Mass of the 1960s will be uncomfortably obvious!
This book forms volume one of Davies's Liturgical Revolution series with volumes two and three due out by the end of 2008. Nowhere will you find a more thorough example of the axiom Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi est - "As you pray, so will you believe."
Cranmer's Godly Order sets the stage for the next two books of the Liturgical Revolution trilogy of which Volume Two (Pope Paul's New Mass) is again available.

Dollfuss: An Austrian Patriot
Fr. Johannes Messner
STK# 8044

The brief Chancellorship of Engelbert Dollfuss in Austria, lasting from May 20, 1932, until his assassination by Nazi agents on July 25, 1934, was one of the high-water marks of all European politics in the 20th century. Fr. Messner's Dollfuss chronicles the work of the Chancellor, whose legacy is his effort to fashion Austrian public life around the social Doctrine of the Church as expressed in Pius XI's encyclical Quadragesimo Anno.
In a time like our own, when, as Messner writes, there was "hardly any hope that it would ever again be possible to establish a State on Christian, or rather on Catholic, principles," Austria under Chancellor Dollfuss represented "a check...[on] the process of eliminating God and the natural moral law from public life." Today it remains, as it was then, a beacon which "leads the way to the truly Christian State."
"[Dollfuss was] the representative of all that remains of the Holy Roman Empire." - G.K. Chesterton.

Evolution Judged by Reason and Faith
Cardinal Ernesto Ruffini
STK# 8338

The Catholic Church vs. The Planet of the Apes
This newly republished classic by Cardinal Ruffini, a personal friend and collaborator of Archbishop Lefebvre, comes just in time for the 200th anniversary of the birth of chief evolutionist Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of his catechism, The Origin of Species. Proponents of Darwinism are planning a cult-like worldwide blitz in 2009 in favor of this anti-Christian doctrine: scheduled pilgrimages to Darwin’s home, statues dedicated, public addresses, a commemorative sea voyage of Darwin’s rebuilt sailing vessel, Darwin Day, etc. How will a Catholic answer the ubiquitous ad nauseum onslaught? Here’s one of the best books highlighting Scripture and the Fathers and Doctors of the Church in support of Intelligent Design against Evolution.
Cardinal Ruffini collaborated with Archbishop Lefebvre and the Coetus Internationalis Patrum (CIP) during Vatican II. The Cardinal is mentioned four times in H. E. Tissier de Mallerais’s Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre: The Biography (Angelus Press) as one of five co-founders of the CIP and a backer of Archbishop Lefebvre’s interventions at the Council. He was a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
The Cardinal uses the findings of embryology, anatomy, physiology, genetics, paleontology, etc. against the positions favoring evolution of both body and soul.
Starting with its so-called proofs, Ruffini convincingly shreds all varieties of the Evolution hypothesis blow-by-blow. Uses schemas and diagrams. Complete.
205 pages. Harcover with dustjacket. Indexed.

Exile in Erin: A Confederate Chaplain's Story
William Barnaby Faherty, S.J.
STK# 8308

Fr. John Bannon, Confederate chaplain, ambassador
to the Pope, advocate in Ireland, Ignatian retreat master
The best telling of the little known story of the unsung priest-hero on both sides of the Atlantic, Fr. John Bannon (1829-1913). Coming to St. Louis, Missouri, from Ireland at age 29, Fr. Bannon built a church there, then had to escape it (wearing a false beard!) with the Feds in hot pursuit to chaplain 1500 of his boys enlisted for the renowned First Confederate Missouri Infantry with which his Irish experience led him to identify politically. Three years in the War Between the States and battles at Pea Ridge, Corinth, and his capture at Vicksburg after being cannonballed during Mass, Fr. Bannon found release and was called by President Jefferson Davis, CSA, to seek formal recognition of the Confederacy by Pope Pius IX in meetings with him at Rome. Sympathetic to the Confederacy, the Holy Father sent Fr. Bannon on a secret mission to Ireland to successfully stymie the deceptive Federal recruiters and keep Irish boys from becoming the Federals’ cannon fodder. Hot-as-gun-lead American/European history with bishops, soldiers, priests, politicians, and even a pope, all in the mix. Includes 81 historic and current photographs, maps, illustrations, and graphs.
Great for boys and young men.

William Hunermann
STK# 8276

"I highly recommend this book for children." -Fr. Herve de la Tour

Garcia Moreno
Fr. Augustine Berthe
STK# 3097

Can governments publicly profess the Catholic faith in modern times? Catholic governments were formerly commonplace during the Middle Ages when Christendom extended throughout Europe. But now such a possibility is scorned as being out of date and impractical. Instead the Freemasonic axiom of separation of Church and State has become universally accepted, despite the fact that this notion has been repeatedly condemned by the Catholic Church.
In this book, the reader will see that it is possible to vanquish the Revolution and wrest nations from its mortal embrace: Garcia Moreno, held the Revolution at his feet, for fifteen years. What is needed today is a Christian Hercules, a Garcia Moreno, enbued with the armor of Christ, that is, the social truths of which the Church alone is the keeper. The true and only Liberator is Jesus Christ, because He is the truth, and the truth alone can deliver the nations. Veritas liverabit vos. The Truth shall make you free.
Alone among all the heads of state, in the wake of the French revolution and the collapse of societies it brought about, Garcia Moreno restored Christian government in Ecuador and merited the glorious name of Regenerator of the Fatherland; alone, despite calumniators and assassins, he gave the world a unique example of unshakable fortitude in the accomplishment of duty; alone, surrounded by tyrants who fought over the nations only to empty their purses, their minds and their hearts, he heaped immense and imperishable benefits upon his nation in the material, intellectual, moral and religious orders; alone, finally, a heroic martyr for Catholic civilization, he gave his blood for the noble cause he had defended. Thus he stands before us as the great political man of the 19th century, the type, so rarely seen, of the savior of nations.
This is THE definitive biography of Garcia Moreno written by French priest Fr. Augustine Berthe in 1877 and translated into English by Lady Elizabeth Herbert of Lea in 1889 (a fascinating person in her own right: wife of the British Minister of War and Anglican convert to Catholicism).
Softcover, 401 pp, 66 photos and drawings and a new preface by Fr. Paul Kimball.

Holding The Stirrup
STK# 8419

In an older day it was customary for a woman to hold her husband's stirrup when he mounted to go into battle. That gesture became a symbol of her
fidelity and courage while he was gone.
Baroness Elisabeth von Guttenberg, daughter of the General Baron von der Tann-Rathsamhausen of Bavaria and the Countess Emma Mikes of Hungary,
for several years held the stirrup for her husband, who died in his lifelong fight against the evils of Hitler and of Communism.
Elisabeth was reared in the aristocratic tradition - Goeth and Schiller, Bach and Beethoven, a summer home in the 500 year old
castle of Tann and a winter home in Nurnberg, member of the Old World society of Berlin and Budapest, host to Bruno Walter, Kaiser Wilhelm
and Emperor Karl of Hungary and eventually wife of the Baron George-Enoch von und zu Guttenberg, the leader of the "White Army"
that liberated Munich from the Spartacists after the first World War.
But more than nostalgia for the grace and security of the past, Elisabeth's life story reflects world events from the turn of the
century to the present, from the decline of the Hapsburgs to the tragic aftermath of the Third Reich. It is a story of heroism and
self-sacrifice - the struggle waged by a nobility which, for all its faults and omissions, was the last bulwark of Christianity in Hitler's Germany,
and the last organized defender of civilization which Hitler brought to such a terrifying end.
It was this nobility which implemented the famous plot to assassinate Hitler, a plot in which Elisabeth's cousin, Claus Stauffenberg, and many
good friends lost their lives. The drama of this great conspiracy, together with the personalities and secret machinery which almost
made it work, is the high point of the book.
Elisabeth writes lovingly of her visits to the cities and courts of Europe; of her castle homes; of her friendship with the peasant girl,
Theresa Neumann Konnersreuth, who bore the holy sign of the stigmata; of her romantic and deeply spiritual devotion to her husband, who, even
after his death in the German Navy, was never quite apart form her; of her sons and daughter and of the rich, friendly commonplaces of family
life in a time gone beyond recall - except for a book such as this.
This graceful and Christian memoir, by a daughter of the German aristocracy, is a fond testimonial to a way of life that was critically wounded at
Sarajevo and met its death at the hands of Hitler.
Seldom does one find a faith and sincerity like Elisabeth's, and seldom can one share such a sense of physical participation in history.
Holding the Stirrup is one of those happy accidents which happen so rarely - a memoir that
tells an intensely personal story and yet captures the spirit of the age.
270pp., hardcover.

Horn Of The Unicorn
Dr. David Allen White
STK# 8159

Dr. White has done it again! From the author of our tremendously popular The Mouth of the Lion (the life of heroic Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer) comes this new - and different - biography of Archbishop Lefebvre.
Make no mistake, this biography is unlike ANY you have read before. It is a mosaic, if you will, providing parenthetical glimpses and historical soundbites of the life of Marcel Lefebvre. Each tid-bit (sometimes one to a page, sometimes five to a page) offers a new and fascinating insight.
A truly unique style of writing. It is perfectly suited to those who want the convenience of picking up the book and reading for one minute OR one hour. Pick it up. Put it down. On your time.
Although not a definitive and exhaustive biography like Bishop Tissier de Mallerais's Marcel Lefebvre, The Horn of the Unicorn deftly weaves poetry, Scripture, anecdotes, news, and history into the story of the life of Archbishop Lefebvre.
The result is an inspiring and thought-provoking appreciation of his life from one of America's most distinguished Catholic writers. But, you're asking, "I read Bishop Tissier's bio. Why should I read this one?" Because it invites the reader to reflect on the life of Archbishop Lefebvre in a new and different way. Like a motion picture on paper, Dr. White associates thoughts, images, notions, quotations in such a way that an understanding of the Archbishop and his times emerges.
The crisis in the Church is not fun. None of us wants the current situation we are in, but God has His reasons... "to them that love God, all things work together unto good" (Rom. 8:28). One of these reasons is summed up in the Latin phrase "Crescit sub pondere Virtus" (virtue grows out of adversity). We have the opportunity to "step up to the plate" ourselves AND the privilege of living among saints. How many of us met this great man? Were confirmed by him? Received the Body of Christ from his hands? Received his blessing? How fortunate we are!
Dr. White says, "But allow me to share a comment made to me once by the late Fr. Malachi Martin, 'Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer are the two great saints of the modern Church. Once this catastrophe ends they will be instantly canonized.'"

Marcel Van: The Triumph of Love by Catherine St-Pierre
Catherine St-Pierre
STK# 8288

Marcel Van: The Triumph of Love by Catherine St-Pierre
St. Theresa the Little Flower revealed herself to Marcel Van and guided him in her Little Way of Love. His simple and solid faith was highlighted with submission to God's Providence during persecution and suffering. This book convinces its readers that the fire of God's Charity burned in the life of this humble and courageous lay Redemptorist Brother.
Amidst suffering, first in Hanoi, Vietnam, and consummated with his martyr's death at the age of 31 in a Communist concentration camp (July 10, 1959), Marcel Van's message of love still echoed: "Love cannot die, it goes on loving without any limitations of time. Oh, if I could only die of love! I have already made an act of total offering, and that act has been accepted...."
Forty-three years after the Communist victory in the Republic of Vietnam, Marcel Van is still a voice to raise our heart and mind to our suffering and faithful Savior. Includes the messages given by the Blessed Virgin Mary to Marcel Van in 1946 regarding what She called "the Apostles of My reign." Though of a different and curious culture, the traditional Catholic faith of this lay brother transforms and overcomes differences in nationality.
192pp. Sewn softcover, 20 photographs.

Outlaws of Ravenhurst
Sr. M. Imelda Wallace, S.L.
STK# 8436

For generations Ravenhurst had been the stronghold of Scottish chiefs who led Clan Gordon to battle for God and Our lady! It was filled
with memories of persecution. It was the scene of the last stand of the great Earl, Sir Angus. Back against the altar and outnumbered twenty to one,
the giant Angus grasped his two-handed longsword and laid the sacrilegious enemies of his God around his feet like sproutings clipped from a
hedgerow. The setting is 17th century Scotland and the characters are strong Catholics, outlaws remaining true to their Faith, even if it means
drawing their swords and fighting (and possibly dying) for that Faith. This classic adventure is a favorite of young and old alike sure to be a
story that most will want to read and read again!

Pope Johns Council

STK# 8283

Pope John's Council
Liturgical Revolution: Vol. II
by Michael Davies
Your long wait is over. Finally, Volume Two of the Liturgical Revolution series, Pope John's Council, has returned. For those who have read it, it is already a classic. Few books can rival its clarity and objectivity. An incredible pattern emerges: a pastoral Council hijacked by a clique of theological liberals who consign to the trash the documents of the Council Preparatory Committee (of which Archbishop Lefebvre was a member), shut off the microphones of those who attempt to defend the Faith (suffering this indignity was no less than the illustrious Cardinal Ottaviani), and co-opting the media so that their spin became "reality"?
Michael Davies spent the last year of his life updating this book. Indispensable to understanding Vatican Council II.

Pope Pauls New Mass
Michael Davies
STK# 8424

Pope Paul’s New Mass is the third and final book of the Liturgical Revolution trilogy. It is the unparalleled history of how
the New Mass was devised, created, and implemented. Beyond this, a list of the manifold liturgical problems of the past generation is
documented: from Mass facing the people and revolutionary legislation to Communion in the hand and the problem of the Offertory. For over
thirty years this book has been considered the most thorough critique of the New Mass in the English language. Michael Davies, former
president of Una Voce, was one of the earliest critics of the liturgical changes in the Mass after Vatican II. Archbishop Lefebvre recommended
many of his early works, including the most comprehensive documentation and defense of the foundation of the SSPX: Apologia Pro Marcel
Lefevbre (in three volumes). The current president of Una Voce is Mr. Leo Darroch.
“By the mid-1970s the crisis within the Church was deepening. In his general research on the various novelties that were being introduced he
had amassed a huge amount of data on the Council and how the great majority of the Fathers had been deceived by the well-orchestrated plan of a
clique of European bishops and their liturgical advisers. Michael Davies argued that the Church’s attempted headlong rush into unity with other
Christian bodies would, in fact, have the adverse effect to that being proclaimed and was leading swiftly to its decline. Thus was born his great
trilogy, Liturgical Revolution. His first volume, Cranmer’s Godly Order (1976), examined the Protestant Reformation, what
happened and why. His second work, Pope John’s Council (1977), was written ‘to provide an objective and documented explanation of the fact
that the Church in the West is disintegrating and that the responsibility for this disintegration must be laid at the door of the Second Vatican
Council.’ His third volume, Pope Paul’s New Mass (1980), provided a detailed examination of the development of the Roman rite, the
liturgical legislation pouring out from the Vatican during and after the Council, the prayers and rubrics of the new rite of Mass, and the
devastating impact of the changes on the Church throughout the world.”–Leo Darroch, President of Una Voce International
Benedict XVI, on the Death of Michael Davies “I have been profoundly touched by the news of the death of Michael Davies. I had the good
fortune to meet him several times and I found him to be a man of deep faith and ready to embrace suffering. Ever since the Council he put all his
energy into the service of the Faith and left us important publications especially on the sacred liturgy. Even though he suffered from the Church
in many ways in his time, he always truly remained a man of the Church. He knew that the Lord founded His Church on the rock of Peter and
that the Faith can find its fullness and maturity only in union with the successor of St. Peter. Therefore we can be confident that the Lord
opened wide for him the gates of Heaven. We commend his soul to the Lord’s mercy.” — Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, 2004

Restoration of Christian Culture
Dr. John Senior
STK# 8256

"Dare we hope of a restoration?"
In this compelling "sequel" to his well-known book, The Death of Christian Culture, Dr. Senior answers this question with a genuinely realistic, but no less resounding, "yes."
The Restoration of Christian Culture continues warning of the ongoing extinction of the cultural patrimony of ancient Greece and Rome, medieval Europe, and the early-modern West, owing to the bureaucratization, mechanization, and standardization of life today. Beyond this, Senior offers challenging and provocative ideas for recapturing and living the cultural traditions of classical and Christian history.
Bringing the wisdom of giants such as Aristotle, Augustine, and Aquinas into touch with the social, political, and personal life of "modern man," Restoration shows us how we can once again become fellow citizens of a common Western culture.
Among Senior's credentials as a scholar and cultural and literary critic is his work in the University of Kansas Integrated Humanities Program, a four-semester course that combined aspects of the Socratic and "great-books" methods. It aimed to convince students, by cultivation of "poetic knowledge" based upon an immersion in the classics of Western thought, art, and literature, that there is a truth worth knowing. It resulted in numerous conversions to Catholicism and was the principal forum in which Senior worked out the keen insights and shocking observations presented in his books.

Saint Fernando III: A Kingdom for Christ
James Fitzhenry
STK# 8407

"The King of Kings shall open, and the king of the land shall come..."
It was the feast of St. Michael the Archangel, the 29th of September, 1224. The warriors waited restlessly in the courtyard, astride their
steeds, clad in steel mail and brilliant plate armor. Elaborate silk surcoats, emblazoned with various devices, fluttered loosely in the early
morning breeze, and assorted weapons hung from saddles or were belted about lean waists.
The army fell silent as King Fernando suddenly appeared on the staircase. He stood still, grim-faced, appraising with satisfaction the
assembled host. Fernando had labored incredibly, struggling for years to bring this day about. He knew that these men had also endured sufferings
and labors untold, as had all of Castile for hundreds of years. How many thousands of knights had spilled their blood during those centuries,
fighting heroically to defend their homeland from the unjust oppressor, or while attempting to retake what had been stolen from them? How many
unnamed men and women toiled as slaves in Moorish lands, serving their masters in shame and fear, finding relief only in death? How many were even,
now chained to an oar in the bowels of a Moorish galley, forgotten to all but God, or were forced into servitude in Muslim armies, perishing as
they fought to spread the cult of the Infidel?

Cooney has re-examined the historical sources for the life of St George, and has forged these into a stirring and original historical novel.
Here we rediscover St George as Giorgios Theognosta, the Roman cavalry officer from Lydda in Palestine, a Christian during the last days of
the pagan Empire, a brave man who stands up for his faith during the final great wave of persecution. Giorgios’ integrity and military
skill, inherited from his murdered father, bring him success in his career, but this success brings him the envy of a powerful enemy,
one whom he will ultimately have to confront.
In Giorgios’ company we journey to the corners of an Empire striving to hold its borders against those who reject Roman rule – from Germania to
North Africa, from Persia to Britannia – encountering along the way a throng of historical characters: Aurelian, Diocletian, Galerius,
Zenobia, an old British king named Coel, and Giorgios’ great friend, a promising young officer of the imperial family named Constantine . . .
The action-filled narrative reveals much about the Christian Church of the third century, about life in the Roman army, and about how
extraordinary legends can arise through the affectionate exaggeration and symbolic story-telling of a devoted scribe.

St. Francis of Assisi & the Conversion of the Muslims
Frank Rega
STK# 8271

Tells the authentic story of St. Francis's trip to the Sultan in Egypt and efforts to convert him to the One True Faith. Also includes a brief biography of St. Francis, including his stigmata; the Franciscans; St. Clare; and St. Francis's view of the Crusades. A book greatly needed in our era of false ecumenism.

Swords Around the Cross
Timothy T. O'Donnell
STK# 8440

Swords Around the Cross: The Nine Years War: Ireland’s Defense of Faith and Fatherland, 1594–1603
Swords around the Cross presents one of the few full-length treatments of the heroic struggle of the Irish clansmen in their effort
to defend their faith and country against English encroachment and conquest in the sixteenth century. This book has infuriated establishment
academics for its honest and thorough treatment of the Irish past. In so doing, the image of a “golden age” under Elizabeth I
is dealt a serious blow.

Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know
Diane Moczar
STK# 8208

en Dates Every Catholic Should Know: The Divine Surprises and Chastisements That Shaped the Church and Changed the World!
Here are the saints and sinners, popes and kings that God used to shape his Church and change the world. You'll meet Clovis and Charlemagne, Luther and Pope Leo, Suleiman and St. Francis, the Arians, the Franks, the Huguenots, and others whose sins or sacrifices altered the course of history.
Here, too, are the wars and plagues, the ideas and institutions - and, yes, the miracles - that gave birth to our Christian civilization and often threatened to doom it.
Experience the battles of Tours and Lepanto, the Crusades, the Russian Revolution, and Fatima. Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know finds the answer in history: from the first days of the Christian era, at key moments when civilization hung in the balance, God has intervened - sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically - but ever and always He has come forward Himself or given strength to those who were faithful to Him. Consider, for example:
•Constantine, the pagan general who, in a desperate hour, saw a vision that made him a Christian and led to the conversion of the entire Roman Empire
•Pope St. Leo, who confronted Attila the Hun face-to-face and, without sword or dagger, turned back this "Scourge of God" and all his murderous hordes
•The surprising victories of the outgunned armies that thrust back the Moors, the Turks, and the barbarians - just when Christendom faced annihilation
•Plus: St. Genevieve, Pepin the Short, Pope St. Pius V, St. Margaret Mary, and countless others who, in crucial moments, were called by God to save his people and give new life to our culture and His Church.
Excellent for any Catholic who wants to understand the history of our Faith. But it will give you more than knowledge: you'll close this book with renewed confidence that no matter how dark and dangerous the times may be, God has never abandoned his people...and never will.

The Battleground: Syria and Palestine, The Seed Plot of Religion
Hilaire Belloc
STK# 8425

In this religious-biblical oriented history, Belloc provides a full and fair treatment of the ancient Jews and other Middle Eastern cultures
and their impact in history, and in today’s world. He affirms a special divine design in the story of Syria and particularly of Israel,
reaching a climax in the event of the Crucifixion of Christ. His famous motto, “Europe is the Faith, the Faith is Europe” has been interpreted
as a form of religious ethnocentrism. But he was making the point that what we regard as the greatest cultural, political and artistic
achievements of Western civilization stem from the old creed. Without the one, the other would not exist.

The Church at the Turning Points of History
Godfrey Kurth
STK# 8247

The Church at the Turning Points of History
by Godfrey Kurth
Fr. Dennis Fahey highly recommended the historical works of Kurth - and this is one of the best (along with The Origins of Modern Civilization). This short book examines the Church's history at seven critical junctures.
Highly readable, riveting, hard to put down...an excellent book for someone first delving into Church History. And for those who have already done so, it gives a great framework for what you already know, tying loose ends together...connecting the dots.
The seven "Turning Points" are:
1. The Mission of the Church (The Church's understanding of Her own purpose)
2. The Church and the Jews (Council of Jerusalem in AD 49)
3. The Church and the Barbarians
4. The Church and Feudalism
5. The Church and Neo-Caesarism
6. The Church and the Renaissance
7. The Church and the Revolution.
From the Introduction: "An obvious strength of Kurth's book is the author's ability to seek historical truth and present it in a manner that would today be impossible, because of...'political correctness.'" I cannot recommend this book too highly.
Softcover, 126 pp, 102 explanatory footnotes to help the reader understand references to people and events.

The Conquest Of New Spain
Bernal Diaz
STK# 8178

"Whenever we fired our guns, the Indians gave great shouts and whistles, and threw up straw and earth so that we could not see what harm we had done them."
Vivid, powerful and absorbing, this is a first - person account of one of the most amazing military episodes in history: the overthrow of Montezuma's doomed Aztec Empire by Hernan Cortes and his band of adventurers.
Bernal Diaz del Castillo, himself a soldier under Cortes, presents a fascinatingly detailed description of the Spanish landing in Mexico in 1520 and their amazement at the city, the expulsion and flight of the Spaniards, their regrouping and eventual capture of the Aztec capital.
The author brings a deep Catholic sense to his writing. Consequently, this chronicle is not just about how good men (courageous, prudent, just and restrained) brought civilization to a pagan world, but how the author explains that he and his fellow soldiers gave the dignity of the sons of God to the Indians, that they were men of honor, performing a high and unique mission: to bring salvation and the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who sat in darkness.
The Conquest of New Spain has a compelling immediacy that brings the past and its characters to life and offers a unique eye - witness view of not only an amazing point in history, but a momentous victory for God. J. M. Cohen's translation is supplemented by an introduction (less than integrally Catholic, unfortunately) and maps of the conquered territory.

The Death of Christian Culture
Dr. John Senior
STK# 8252

The Death of Christian Culture
by Dr. John Senior
Dr. Senior deals with the root causes of how and why Christian culture is dying. He approaches the subject through an in-depth study of literature, culture, history, and religion, to alert citizens of the West of what they stand to lose, especially as education ceases to be about the truth, and becomes merely an exercise in bureaucracy and "ticket-punching." Ultimately, Senior warns that the cultural, literary, artistic, and social treasures of classical and Christian civilization must be preserved and lived, lest they be lost forever.
Senior was an architect of the University of Kansas Integrated Humanities Program, a course that combined aspects of the Socratic and "Great Books" methods. It aimed to convince students by an immersion in the classics of Western thought, art, and literature, that there is a truth worth knowing. It resulted in numerous conversions to Catholicism and was the principal forum in which Senior worked out the keen insights presented in his books.

The Greatest Catholic President: Garcia Moreno of Ecuador
Frank M. Rega, S.F.O.
STK# 8342

Few Catholics today know the story of Gabriel Garcia Moreno, the devout, saintly leader who briefly re-established the shining light of Christendom in a small corner of the world during the nineteenth century. Garcia Moreno's role in Catholic history is so significant that the Blessed Virgin Mary specifically foretold his presidency more than two centuries before his birth.

The Story of a Family: the Home of St Therese of Lisieux
Fr. Stephane-Joseph Piat, O.F.M
STK# 8434

The Story of a Family contains the fabulously captivating and popular life of the Martin family, showing the background that helped
produce "the greatest Saint of Modern Times." (St. Pius X).
"When we had our children, our lives changed somewhat. Thenceforward we lived only for them; they made all our happiness and we would never
have found it save in them. In fact, nothing any longer cost us anything; the world was no longer a burden to us. As for me, my children were my
great compensation, so that I wished to have many in order to bring them up for Heaven."

The Story of The Trapp Family Singers
Maria Augusta Trapp
STK# 8431

With nearly 1,500 Broadway performances, six Tony Awards, more than three million albums sold, and five Academy Awards, The Sound of Music, based on
the lives of Maria, the baron, and their singing children, is as familiar to most of us as our own family history. But much about the real-life
woman and her family was left untold.
Here, Baroness Maria Augusta Trapp tells in her own beautiful, simple words the extraordinary story of her romance with the baron, their escape
from Nazi-occupied Austria, and their life in America.
Now with photographs from the original edition.

Why Do Catholics Eat Fish on Friday?
Michael P. Foley
STK# 8327

The Catholic Origin of Just About Everything
Unearthing the present and forgotten Catholic roots of what we say and do in everyday America
Page after page on the surprising Catholic origin of just about everything in holidays, entertainment, plants and animals, politics, and the English language. Not written specifically for traditional Catholics, but an impressive body of fascinating study proving the indelible yet often unrecognized mark of Catholic belief in the present-day world, even in non-Catholic societies like the US, which resonate with the influence of Catholic ways and words:
• The seven black spots on a LADYBUG symbolize the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady • “GOODBYE” is an Old English variation of “God be with ye” • GROUNDHOG DAY comes from a Candlemas tradition • CHAMPAGNE pioneered by Benedictines • St. Augustine, Father of SNACK FOOD • THE TRINITY on the dollar bill • The game of LA CROSSE is derived from the French missionary word crozier
An interesting thing happens when you read this book. All of a sudden, you become aware that the littlest and most common things and events of the day are echoes of the Catholic Faith and spark your recollection. What a find! Worthwhile table-talk.
