Renowned scholar Dr. Tim Gray masterfully guides you through the tumultuous and inspiring life of Peter—from his call to discipleship to his eventual martyrdom in Rome. Using Sacred Scripture and tradition, Dr. Gray highlights these important lessons from Peter’s life, including:
• How to become a trusting disciple and “cast into the deep”
• The pitfalls of living discipleship at a distance and the eventual denial that will come
• How to recover from sin and accept God’s mercy
• How to become a bold witness to others of the love of Jesus
Come to better know, love, and follow Jesus through the Rock on whom he built his Church.
Dimensions: 8 x 5.5
“Tim Gray strolls through Scripture, walking alongside Peter, a great Apostle and model disciple. As you read, you will be caught up in the drama and glean insights and instruction for your daily life.”
– Steve Ray, Author of Upon this Rock: Peter and the Primacy of Rome in Scripture and the Early Church
“Dr. Gray weaves together the scriptural, traditional, and archaeological evidence of the life of Peter—giving us a deep personal insight into the head Apostle—as if we are really there.”
– Fr. Robert Spitzer, Author of 5 Pillars of Catholic Spirituality and Finding True Happiness
Discussing moral issues with family and friends can be a challenge in a culture that strongly promotes the idea that there is no objective truth. Speaking from a wealth of personal experience, renowned author and theologian Dr. Edward Sri provides 5 “keys” to enable Christians to oppose with logic and love what Pope Benedict XVI called the “dictatorship of relativism.” He also clarifies the proper understanding of what it means to judge, and the importance of making good judgments.
During his studies in Germany, Pope Francis encountered a local devotion centered on an image of Our Lady in the Church of St Peter in Augsburg. Many had come to pray with seemingly irresolvable family and marriage problems and had been helped. On his return to Argentina he set about spreading this devotion and its novena.
This booklet gives a brief history of the devotion and the main prayers to “Our Lady Undoer (or Untier) of Knots.”
Speaking from his perspective as a historian, Christopher Check reminds us that the crisis of our age is cultural and, in the end, spiritual. He explains that a flourishing society is not achieved through legislation or at the ballot box, but instead radiates from the family out. Using examples from the ages, he connects us with our rich patrimony as Catholics and provides practical advice on what we must do to transform our culture for Christ.
The Roman Catholic Church has long been the target of suspicion and hostility. But how much of this is based on ignorance and prejudice and how much is the fruit of thoughtful consideration of the facts?
This book separates fact from fiction. Without excusing or justifying wrongdoing, author Christopher Kaczor clarifies official Catholic teaching and demonstrates that much popular opinion about Catholicism is based on misunderstanding and misinformation. He also provides robust and lucid arguments for Catholic belief and practice.
No one book can answer everyone’s questions or objections about Catholicism, but this work examines seven of the most controversial and common myths about the Catholic Church.
• The Church Opposes Science
• The Church Hates Gays
• The Church Hates Women
• The Church Opposes Same-Sex Marriage Because of Bigotry
• Priestly Celibacy Caused the Crisis of Priestly Pedophilia

Though the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima took place almost a hundred years ago, Our Lady’s call to prayer and penance for the salvation of souls and peace in the world is as relevant now as when first delivered to three Portuguese peasant children in 1917.
At the peak of World War I, Our Lady warned us of another possible worldwide conflict, the rise and spread of Communism, and a terrible persecution of the Church, unless people repented of their sins and returned to God. She also requested devotion to her Immaculate Heart and a special consecration of Russia.
Much of what Our Lady of Fatima said was revealed soon after her appearances, but the third and final “secret,” which was not a message but a prophetic vision seen by the children, was not unveiled by the Vatican until 2000. Pope John Paul II, who read the third secret while recovering from the attempt upon his life in 1981, believed the vision signified the sufferings the Church had endured in the twentieth century.
Because of the prophetic nature of her messages, the story of Our Lady of Fatima has been the subject of much controversy and speculation. In his book, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, an acclaimed expert on Fatima, carefully analyzes the events and messages at Fatima and clears up lingering questions and doubts about their meaning. He also challenges the reader to hear anew the call of Our Lady to prayer and sacrifice, for the world is ever in need of generous hearts willing to make reparation for those in danger of losing their way to God.
You’re almost certainly not as kind as you ought to be—and your relationships with God and those you love may be suffering as a result. Probably you just can’t find the time—and can’t ever seem to develop the patience—that you need in order to be consistently kind amidst the irritations that afflict you daily. That’s why The Hidden Power of Kindness is such a godsend.
There’s nothing complicated or magical about learning to be kinder; it just takes greater attention to the things that you do and how you do them. These pages show you how to become ore aware of even your most offhand daily actions. You’ll find simple, step-by-step, and spiritually crucial directions for who to overcome the habitual unkindnesses that creep—undetected—into the behavior of even the most careful souls.
If you want to make progress in the spiritual life, you can’t afford to miss the bracing insights in this handbook for souls who yearn to be kinder. They’ll give you years of solid help in overcoming sin so that, finally, you’ll live more fully with others and more fruitfully in God’s love.
