These infallible pronouncements shine in their clarity and simplicity, and are a certain statement on many important matters of Faith at a time when the Catholic world is racked by confusion and controversy. Destined to do a great good to enlighten many. A must for every student of the Faith and everyone who loves the Church.

CATECHISM OF THE COUNCIL OF TRENT. Rev. John A. McHugh, O.P. and Chas J. Callan, O.P. This is the only officially promulgated catechism of the Catholic Church.

Prescribed by Pope St. Pius X to be used by all priests in instructing the faithful. Recommended by Pope Leo XIII for all seminarians.

THE CATHOLIC CONTROVERSY. St. Francis de Sales. After being repeatedly rebuffed in his attempts to re-evangelize Calvinist Protestants who would not listen to Catholic preaching for fear of reprisals, St. Francis resorted to writing leaflets and inserting them into copies of his sermons, then posting them on walls, slipping them under doors and handing them to anyone he could. Four years later almost 72,000 had returned to the ancient Catholic Faith! These tracts have been gathered together and entitled The Catholic Controversy. The works are still as fresh and powerful today and give some of the most cogent arguments against Protestantism ever penned, presenting a defense of the Catholic Faith that in some respects has never been equalled. 413pp. PB.

FREEMASONRY-Mankind's Hidden Enemy, With Current Official Catholic Statements. Bro. Charles Madden, O.F.M. Conv. A short, incisive examination of Freemasonry giving a brief, clear overview of the subject to convince today's Catholics that they may not join this cult-and why not! Quotes Leo XIII's famous encyclical Humanum Genus (1884); proves Freemasonry is a secret society, that even its own members do not know the exact objectives of, one where its members swear blind obedience to their leaders, even under pain of death. Shows Freemasonry is a religion of naturalism and aims at promoting naturalism and human reason over the influence of the Church upon society. Says Freemasonry actually denigrates God, Jesus Christ, monotheism, and religion, and works to nullify the effects of all religion - especially the Catholic religion - upon society and individuals. Discusses the Catholic confusion about Freemasonry dating from the 1960's and 1970's, showing that the Church has officially not changed her traditional stance against the cult, plus much, much more! 66pp. PB.

A LIGHT IN THE HEAVENS-The Great Encyclical Letters of Pope Leo XIII. Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903). St. Malachy of Armagh (in Ireland), on a trip to Rome around 1140 A.D., wrote a prophetic title for every Pope from his own time to the End of Time. His prophecy for Leo XIII was "A light in the heavens." And truly he was, as these great Encyclicals more than prove-shedding the light of the Faith on virtually all the major problems of the world that we still face. Though written approximately 100 years ago, they read as though written today. Modern man founders in a sea of problems, all of his own making. But like a huge beacon light, these great letters of Leo XIII show us the solutions. Here are all this great Pope's famous Encyclicals: On Freemasonry Holy Scripture Christian Marriage Anglican Orders The Condition of the Working Classes True and False Americanism Christian Democracy The Holy Spirit of Christian Constitution of States o Right Ordering of Christian Life Chief Duties of Christians as Citizens The Most Holy Eucharist Scholastic Philosophy Socialism-Communism-Nihilism On the Evils Affecting Modern Society, etc., etc. Rather than a group of disparate letters, these encyclicals read today like the various chapters from a single mighty book - a book as from a Doctor of the Church, commenting on all the evils and problems of modern times, and their solutions. These encyclicals are as germane today as when written-nay, more so! For we today are witnesses of the extremity of those errors which were only beginning to show themselves in Leo's time. He shows that the Faith is the answer, the Catholic Faith is the solution to man's problems: Having rejected the Gospel of Jesus Christ, modern man as a society is cast back upon his own devices and they are woefully inadequate to answer his needs. Here is a book every adult Catholic should read and one that belongs in every Catholic home for the profound enlightenment of future generations of Catholic people! 580pp. PB. Imp.

Contains many of St. John's memorable sayings such as, "I know two very certain ways of becoming poor: they are working on Sunday and taking other people's property."
