    After spending more than a millennium in relative obscurity, Saint Joseph has become the second-most mentioned saint in the papal magisterium after the Virgin Mary.

To understand the life and importance of Saint Joseph, a good place to start is with the first papal title ever granted him: “Patron of the Universal Church.”

What is it that Saint Joseph has to offer the Church — and each one of us — today? That’s the question that A Man Named Joseph: Guardian for Our Times seeks to answer. To get there, Catholic Answers Apologist Joe Heschmeyer cuts through a lot of our misconceptions to see what the Bible and the earliest Christians really say about Joseph as a model husband, father, and saint.

Questions at the end of each chapter help guide personal reflection and group discussion. Whatever we may be facing in life, we can go to Joseph for his example, his protection, and his prayers.

    here are two universal themes in human experience: 1) We all seek true, lasting happiness, and 2) We have trouble finding it, because the world is a messed-up place.

In times of turmoil, when nothing seems normal or certain about our jobs, our health, our beliefs, or the future of our planet, true happiness—and the tranquil peace that comes with it—can seem even more elusive.

In The Words of Eternal Life, Jimmy Akin takes an unflinching look at the problem and offers a solution that is daring and radical yet familiar, and available anywhere, for free, right now. The answer is Jesus, the Word of the Father who teaches us the words of eternal life; the Word made flesh who by the words of a priest comes to dwell among us and feed us with the grace of peace and strength.

Written in a clear, inviting style that speaks equally to religiously unaffiliated inquirers and to believers who may have let their faith get lukewarm or go out of practice, The Words of Eternal Life is a great resource to give loved ones looking for something real and true—or to give your own faith life a helpful boost.

    To many people, even many Christians, purgatory is a fantasy—or worse, a wicked lie invented by the Church to make salvation complicated and keep people in fear.

But apologist Karlo Broussard says that purgatory is fact, not fiction. The Bible supports it, Christians have historically believed in it, and it makes theological sense.

In Purgatory Is for Real, he provides the evidence and reasoning to help you understand this controversial doctrine, and demonstrates how it is actually a joyful, hopeful reality—not something shadowy and mysterious, but a sign of God’s love and mercy.

    For a long time, Christopher Columbus enjoyed a positive—if slightly simplistic—reputation in our national culture. Even if he didn’t exactly “discover America,” we still revered him as a key figure in a critical period of Western history.

Today, they’re toppling his statues and cursing his name in town squares across the country. Even many Catholic institutions are quietly hiding their monuments to this former hero now branded an “imperialist oppressor,” the arch-villain of woke revisionist history.

Can we save Columbus’s memory before it’s completely erased?

In the audio presentation Christopher Columbus: Hero or Villain, Catholic Answers president Christopher Check cuts through the calumnies and reveals the full (and laudable) facts about Columbus: his virtues and failings, his actions and aims, and the immense, almost incomparable significance of his efforts to bring Christian civilization to the New World.

    Popular culture fills our heads with lurid images of apocalyptic events, and the daily headlines make us wonder if the prophesied end of days may soon be here. 20 Answers: The End Times cuts through the wild speculation and explains what the Church and biblical prophecy really teach us about the Christ’s return and the long-foretold events that will mark the culmination of creation as we know it. Best of all, it shows us how to look forward to these things not with fear but with patient perseverance.

    In Purgatory Is for Real, Catholic apologist Karlo Broussard (Meeting the Protestant Challenge) definitively tackles this most-misunderstood teaching, giving you the evidence and arguments to see (and explain to others) that purgatory is neither contrary to Scripture nor some fantastical dogma that Rome invented. Rather, it is firmly rooted in biblical truth and the faith and practice of the earliest Christians.

    n May 1917, the Virgin Mary began appearing to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal, bringing them a message of repentance, warning, and hope.

She returned every month of that year through October, when tens of thousands witnessed the event known as the “miracle of the sun.”

She also gave the children a mysterious three-part secret that would not be revealed in its entirety until the year 2000.

The Mysteries of Fatima offers a fascinating look at this crucial Marian apparition. 
In this informative audio set, senior apologist Jimmy Akin and his co-host Domenico Bettinelli dive deep into the mysteries of Fatima in three presentations taken from Jimmy’s top-rated Mysterious World podcast.

    Perhaps no single theological issue divides Catholics and Protestants, and along so many fine lines, as the question of salvation: namely, are we saved solely by profession of our faith in Jesus, or do our actions (and omissions) play a part? Is it enough to commit ourselves interiorly to Christ, or do we need things like sacraments, sacrifices, and acts of love, too? 20 Answers: Faith & Works gives a short and clearly readable explanation of the basic disagreements, provides a compelling case for the traditional Christian understanding that the Catholic Church professes even today, and holds out hope for increasing unity among all believers on this critical issue.
