“There are various false mercies alive and well these days,” Dr. Christopher J. Malloy comments. “False mercies such as there’s no hell, there’s no need to repent, and sin is not really sin.” Dr. Malloy‘s new book, False Mercy: Recent Heresies Distorting Catholic Truth, emphasizes two main insights in the maelstrom of religious confusion : the faith doesn’t change; and we are playing for high stakes. Dr. Malloy is Associate Professor of Theology at the University of Dallas, and teaches his students that we are all here on a pilgrimage, to go to heaven or hell.

Blue-Collar Apologetics author John Martignoni says that most Catholics don’t know the ‘why’s’ of their faith; for instance, why contraception is wrong. Blue-Collar Apologetics explains the why’s and shows how to explain the faith to others. An all-important teaching in the book is what John calls Ignorant Catholic Strategy: Be willing to say, ‘I don’t know but I’ll find out.’ This frees us to talk about the faith in total freedom, to anybody, with a lot of joy. There’s an answer to everything in Blue-Collar Apologetics. Pick up your copy at www.ewtnrc.com
David Carollo, presenter for Night of Love by John Haffert, explains that this hour-by-hour companion for making reparation to Jesus in the Eucharist and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is perfect, whether for one hour of adoration, for a partial evening vigil on First Friday, or for an all-night vigil until First Saturday morning. In our adoration, we can ask the Lord for the grace of conversion for our families, friends, community, and even for the conversion of a thousand souls.
|John Haffert, author of The World’s Greatest Secret, co-founded The Blue Army in 1947. David Carollo, the book’s presenter, notes that the apostolate was to be an army of prayer to counter the Red army of atheistic communism. The subtitle of The World’s Greatest Secret, How the Greatest Teaching of Jesus was Preserved, refers to the Eucharist, and why it is a secret. The understanding of the Eucharist, Carollo explains, is a secret unless you have supernatural grace.|
Larry Maginot says that devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will renew the world, as the subtitle of The Marian Manifesto explains. “The most important thing to know about Our Lady,” Maginot emphasizes, “is that she is alive, comes solely at the the behest of her Son, and above all as a loving mother she calls us back to faith, nowhere more significantly than in her apparitions at Fatima.” Maginot reminds us that after Pope John Paul II consecrated Russia to Mary’s Immaculate Heart in 1984, the communist regime collapsed a short five years later.
