    Biography of Sister Maria Lucia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart.

Sister Lucia was a prominent figure of the Portuguese Catholic world of the 20th Century. As the Shepherdess of Fatima who, together with Francisco and Jacinta saw our Lady in 1917, she is regarded as a child blessed and chosen to spread the message of peace and salvation of God throughout the world.

As a Carmelite nun, she was known as as a privileged person dedicated to God and in service to His Church, one in whom people placed enormous confidence because of her role as Our Lady's confident. The contemporary history of the Church would hardly be complete without the inclusion of Sister Lucia's role.

The references to the Holy Father and to his sufferings since the apparitions, as well as the revelation of the third part of the Secret of Fatima and the dramatic events experienced by the Church in the late second and early third millennium do not allow us to ignore Sister Lucia. Reading the biography, A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary, gives us a broader perspective of Sister Lucia's personality.

    Mark McNeil spent years in the Oneness Pentecostal movement: praying in its lively services, zealously spreading its unconventional teachings, and rejecting mainstream Christianity as misguided. He even graduated from a Oneness Pentecostal Bible college with big plans to become a minister and leader within the movement.

Then he left it all behind.

In All in the Name, Mark tells his story first of trading his conventional Baptist upbringing for the emotional buzz and fiery preaching of Oneness Pentecostal worship, and for the thrill of thinking that he was among an elite group of believers who followed the true faith where so many others had strayed. His experience echoes that of many other Christians who are leaving orthodox Christianity for a growing movement that claims:

    Speaking in tongues is a necessary sign of receiving the Holy Spirit and thus a condition for salvation;
    Only those baptized “in the name of Jesus”—not “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”—are true Christians;
    Jesus is not the eternal Son of God but rather the Father manifested on earth; and
    The doctrine of the Trinity is an unholy merging of true biblical faith with pagan superstition that infiltrated the early Church and caused a great apostasy.

But an inquisitive mind, careful study, and the action of the Holy Spirit finally led Mark out of Oneness Pentecostalism and into the Catholic Church. A faith-strengthener for Catholics and an intriguing challenge to those who reject the Trinity, All in the Name is at once an inspiring human story of conversion and a powerful apologetic for orthodox belief on God, Jesus, and salvation.

    Shocked to find corruption widespread in the ranks of their shepherds today, too many good Catholics are tempted to leave the Church, unaware that ever since the days when Jesus’ own treasurer, Judas Iscariot, had his hand in the till, the Good Shepherd and His faithful followers have regularly been betrayed by bad shepherds.  

In the eye-opening pages of Bad Shepherds, Church historian Rod Bennett introduces a number of those bad shepherds, including:

    Bishop Eusebius of Nicomedia, who regularly sold out the Church to the Roman emperor
    Pope Stephen VII, who so hated his late predecessor that he had him dug up, put on trial, and flung into the Tiber
    Benedict IX, who bought and sold the papacy (twice!)
    and Pope John XII, whose debauchery rivaled that of the corrupt emperor Caligula.

Those were very bad shepherds indeed, but while they did the Devil’s work, good Catholics not only survived — they thrived.

They outlasted their bad shepherds, preserved in their ranks the Faith of our fathers, and served in each instance as the foundation for a cleansing of the House of God and a vigorous renewal of the Faith.

These enlightening pages demonstrate that  it can happen again!
