The Sign of The Cross : From the young St. Francis de Sales’ heroic efforts to bring Calvinists back to the Faith comes this succinct, eloquent defense of the age-old Catholic practice of making the Sign of the Cross, which sixteenth-century Calvinists denounced as a Popish invention and many Protestants scorn even today. Embodying the zeal of youth and the wisdom of age, this gentle jewel of Catholic apologetics traces the origins of the Sign of the Cross back to the Fathers of the Church, to the Apostles before them, and finally to our Lord Himself. As they did for the Calvinists in St. Francis’s day, so in our day these pages will bring you a better understanding and a renewed love the Sign of the Cross, that brief and lively exterior prayer by which, from time immemorial, God has been invoked by serious Christians before all of their endeavors. In addition, you will learn what scores of saints have said about it, including St. Ambrose, St. Augustine, St. Basil, St. Clement, St. Cyril, St. Cyprian, St. Dionysius, St. Efraim, St. Eugenius, St. Gregory of Tours, St. Hilarion, Saint Hippolytus, St. Ignatius of Antioch, St. James, St. Jerome, St. John Chrysostom, St. Lawrence, and many others. "Whether you sleep or wake, travel or work, eat or drink, sail on the sea or cross a river, cover yourself with this breastplate, clothe yourself with the saving Sign of the Cross, and evils will not meet you." The Catholic Controversy: This book is a collection of pamphlets written by St. Francis de Sales as a young priest (age 27 to 29) struggling to reach people who would not listen to him: the 72,000 Calvinists of the French Chablais region, who had lost the Faith 60 years previous. The task looked hopeless, yet in four years almost all 72,000 had returned to the Catholic Faith. Here are some of the most cogent arguments against Protestantism ever penned, presenting a defense of the Catholic Faith that in some respects has never been equaled.

The prayer at hand has been called many things: the Pater Noster, the Our Father, the Model Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. In Understanding ‘Our Father,’ Dr. Scott Hahn presents a unique meditation on this common prayer, leading readers to consider the wealth of meaning in this seemingly simple prayer. Relying on the Fathers and Doctors of the Church as well as Sacred Scripture, Dr. Hahn takes each of the seven petitions of the Our Father individually and draws out the implications of the prayer given to us by Christ Himself. About the Author: Dr. Scott Hahn has delivered numerous talks nationally and internationally on a wide variety of topics related to Scripture and the Catholic faith. Hundreds of these talks have been produced on audio and videotapes by St. Joseph Communications. His talks have been effective in helping thousands of Protestants and fallen away Catholics to (re)embrace the Catholic faith. He is currently a Professor of Theology and Scripture at Franciscan University of Steubenville, and is the founder and director of the Saint Paul Center for Biblical Theology. In 2005, he was appointed as the Pope Benedict XVI Chair of Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation at St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Dr. Hahn is also the bestselling author of numerous books including The Lamb’s Supper, Reasons to Believe, and Rome Sweet Home (co-authored with his wife, Kimberly). Scott received his BA in Theology, Philosophy and Economics from Grove City College, PA, Masters of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and his Ph.D. in Biblical Theology from Marquette University. He entered the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil, 1986. He resides in Steubenville, Ohio with his wife, Kimberly, and children.

Is there a book of the Bible more often discussed and yet less understood than the Book of Revelation? The “seven seals.” The “dragon.” The “beast.” The “sea of glass.” The fantastic imagery found in the Book of Revelation has long captivated Christians but remains mysterious to many. In the midst of so much discussion about the end times, what does Revelation teach us about living in the present moment, with our eyes focused on the heavenly Jerusalem? Michael Barber’s latest book, Coming Soon , explores these questions by taking a detailed look at Revelation and its rich tapestry of prophecy, history, and biblical allusion. Barber explores the profound link between the Mass celebrated here on earth and the eternal reality of heaven, demonstrating that the Apocalypse reveals truth that has practical implications for today and points to a firm hope in tomorrow. Coming Soon is a verse-by-verse commentary on the Book of Revelation using the Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition of the Bible. Barber provides a Catholic interpretation, which sees the liturgical background of this book of Scripture—a perspective missing in many Protestant commentaries. Michael Barber holds a bachelor's degree in theology and philosophy from Azusa Pacific University in Southern California and a master's degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. He is currently working on his Ph.D. in Theology at Fuller in Pasadena, California. About the Series: The Kingdom Studies explore the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ as revealed in the New Testament and carried on by His Church. Solid, trustworthy content in language anyone can appreciate. Coming Soon: Unlocking the Book of Revelation Part of the Kingdom Studies Series Study questions at the end of each chapter help promote discussion and reflection A powerful verse-by-verse commentary
Learning the Virtues that Lead You to God : There’s more to goodness than keeping the Commandments: you’ve got to cultivate virtue, too, so that you please God in what you do — not merely in what you don’t do. In these pages, you’ll learn countless ways to grow in such virtue. The wise Msgr. Romano Guardini, a German priest hailed by Pope Benedict XVI as “a great figure” who “aspired to the truth of God and to the truth of man,” leads you from a consideration of virtue in itself to a discussion of each of the key virtues that will make you holy and lead you to God. The Art of Praying: Where did you learn to pray? At your mother's knee? From the nun or brother who taught your religion class? Has your understanding of prayer matured since then, or do you simply pray, year after year, as you were taught as a child? No wonder most people have so many erroneous notions about prayer. No wonder our prayers are still far from what they should be. This remarkable book offers practical ways you can improve your prayers today and grow closer to God. Simple, direct, and profound, The Art of Praying is a helpful guide for the average person in the pew and even for those rare few who are far advanced in prayer. The topics include: how to pray well even when your heart is empty, determining the prayer schedule that's right for you, the posture of prayer, and much more.

When your friends and family are thinking about you, do you want them to feel all gloomy and bummed out? We didn't think so! The same goes for ghosts, who want us to be happy and have fun when we celebrate them. You'll be the life of the party when you show up in our exclusive Women's Day of the Dead Costume! Every year when November rolls around, Latin American communities kick off Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, to honor the spirits of the deceased by living life to the fullest. There is food, drink, music, and enough loudly colored decorations and costumes to wake the dead, which is the whole point! And since the guests of honor are the spirits themselves, there are deathly motifs worked into all of the decorations. Skulls and bones can be found everywhere, from the macabre makeup and outfits, to the dazzlingly delicious sugar skulls. And when it's all over, the souls go back to resting until it's time to do it all again the next November. Of course, those of us who are still living don't get to sleep for a year after the party ends like the dead do (someone's gotta pay those bills, after all), but you can still have tons of spooky fun dressing like them! We've designed this glamorously gothic dress to look both elegant and haunting, and the matching lacy headpiece matches the rose and lace accents on the gown. Add your own skull makeup for a truly otherworldly look, and pair up with someone wearing our Men's Day of the Dead costume to celebrate in style!
The blend of regality, mysticism, and afterlife comes together in perfect harmony in many cultures, but the celebration of it is near perfected in a few. Dia de Muertos has come to coincide with the excitement of All Hallows Eve but holds the celebration for nights afterwards. Communing with the spirits of the beyond and calling their attention can bring great rewards and those who go all out to speak with the spirits come away with more than just an evening in memoria!You too can join in the grandeur of beautiful colors, painted faces, celebrations, and don’t forget the conjuring of spirits! Deck yourself out in this regalia of the Day of the Dead costume and be ready to be one with the night of spirits. A regal-looking black jacket with glimmering silver trim includes a bright red rose on your chest lapel that matches perfectly with a formal bow tie and cummerbund. Tailored for high undead society, show off your bleach-cleaned rib bones that make for a stark contrast with your black top hat and pure white gloves.Include the right kind of face paint and you will be right there with the modern day translation of an ancient Middle American celebration. Or with the same costuming and a few additional accessories, move your celebration to Louisiana and channel the spirits through the might of the mysterious voodoo priest, Samedi. This All Hallows Eve, unite numerous cultures as well as the spirits of the beyond all while showing off your dapper and noble style!
Usually, when you're throwing an epic party and end up waking the neighbors, the neighbors don't then come and join in the fun. But, on Dia de los Muertos, that's exactly what happens, except the neighbors are spirits, and they've been waiting all year to party! You can get into the celebration spirit, too, when you dress up in our exclusive Men's Day of the Dead Costume! Of course, when the Day of the Dead holiday rolls around every November, it takes more than some spooky costumes to muster up the souls of the dead. There also needs to be their favorite foods, music, activities, and anything else they liked about being alive. Which totally makes sense, because what ghost is going to go through the trouble of returning to the land of the living for a party they will just be bored at? We owe them a good time for all of that effort, and all of the creepily styled decorations, skeletons, and skull shaped candies around the festival will make help them feel right at home!The celebration will only just be getting started when you show up decked out in this ghastly exclusive ensemble. The jacket and matching pants feature stylish patterns in the red suede, and spider web accents for extra spooky flair. The decorative roses come attached to the jacket lapels and hat brim, and always stay looking fresh, year after year. The party is even more fun when you have someone in our matching Women's Day of the Dead Costume celebrating with you!
Every time November 2nd comes around, the hundreds year old tradition of Dia de los Muertos, or, Day of the Dead, comes with it in Mexico. To many people who don't know much about the tradition, they see it as a Mexican Halloween or just something to dress up as skeletons for, but it is in fact much more unique than that.It's a holiday full of symbolism. It's the day when all the spirits of the people who have passed away can return to spend time with their friends and family in this world. It sounds a little morbid when you think about all the deceased people who will be hanging out, but to most people it's kind of comforting. Just imagine how many times you've heard people say how they wish they just had one more day with someone before they passed. Now you can do that once a year, even if it is more symbolic than anything. You get to paint sugar skulls, and place all the different things your loved ones enjoyed in life like food, beverages, or games and pictures!Not to mention you have the chance to dress up in fantastic, bright clothing. Just look at this day of the dead inspired dress! Your little girl will look adorable on this special day where not a single skeleton is actually scary but is in fact ready for a great time. This is an exclusive costume made by us so you won't find anything as awesome as this anywhere else. Be sure to check out the others for the rest of the family too!
The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts, and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you'll meet the saint who spent seven Easters on a whale's back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome's friend. You'll see St. George fight the dragon, and you'll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted. But many of these stories have in them scarcely a wave of the fairy wand. So you'll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary — souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety. These marvelous legends and exciting true stories of Christian saints and heroes will provide many hours of delightful reading to believers and non-believers alike! Read the exciting stories of: St. Anthony St. Augustine St. Paul St. Brendan St. Colette St. Columba St. Elizabeth of Hungary St. Cuthbert St. Dorothea St. Dunstan St. Richard of Chichester St. Francis of Assisi St. Francis Xavier St. Louis IX St. Jerome St. Margaret of Scotland St. George St. John of God St. Malchus St. Senan St. Simeon Stylites St. Vincent de Paul and others.
Ever considered that your son might be the life of the party? Maybe he's so great at having fun and dancing that he's transcended this world and has become the afterlife of the party. Believe us, the dead can really raise some heck when they're out on the town. Mexico even has it's own holiday designed all around it! The dress up in their finest traditional clothing, paint skulls and marigolds on their faces, and dance the night away to honor their ancestors who have passed on to the next world. We especially love it because of all the sugar skulls we get to decorate. They're kind of like Easter eggs except these little guys are much sweeter. They're called sugar skulls after all! It's also one of if not the only holidays in the entire world where we can hang out with skeletons, and not be absolutely scared out of our sombreros. The dead aren't here to take our souls or drag us down into the crypts with them this time around. They just want to have fun at the party we threw to celebrate in their honor. That doesn't seem so bad at all now, does it? We think it sounds amazing! If you're going to have a fantastic Day of the Dead celebration though, you have to go all out! Get your boy this fantastic costume and he'll be ready to raise the dead! Don't forget to check out all the other exclusive costumes we made ourselves for this theme.

When it comes to remembering the dead around the world, there’s only one place that we want to be. Most places decide to don black, carry around a few drab flowers, and maybe have a dull meal to honor their ancestor and loved ones who have passed on to the other side, but in Mexico things are a little different. They throw a giant party more full of colors than a rainbow. The main flower they use? Marigolds! They put them on shrines, in the streets, by graves, and even paint them on their faces! That’s the other thing. Have you ever been to a party that was lame AND had face painting involved? We didn’t think so. We also love it because it’s right around the time of our favorite holiday too, Halloween! That’s why even if you don’t have any heritage to celebrate, it’s still a fantastic twist on our own classic celebration. A black and white facemask for your skeleton costume can get a little old and…er…dry as bone; but paint it with the bright colors in this kit and you’ll be sure to win the next costume party. You’ll also be sure to have tons of fun doing it too!
